Abzkaban on Aghave, tequila token party

Hey! Saw your deck posted before FLATSO99's and thought I'd comment since I also play Ghave.

First off I assume your goal with this deck is to play "fair" with a go-wide tokens and counters strategy with some options to win with a combo, but I'd like to offer my primer for you to take a look at and borrow anything you like. I go into detail the different combos you can get from Ghave and how they work as well as a list of combos found in my list.

That being said, I have a few suggestions for how you can strengthen the deck even if you're not looking to combo off as soon as you can.

Your mana curve is a bit high, and I think you can cut some of the more mana-heavy cards to trim the deck and let it play more smoothly. For instance I see Butcher of Malakir but no Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact . I understand if it's a budget problem, but I personally run Grave Pact thanks to it's lower cmc. Yes, Martyr's Bond does the same thing and even extends to permanents other than creatures, but I find it's not worth the mana cost. You could probably cut that one, too.

I know you mentioned Walking Ballista , and I eventually cut Triskelion in my own deck for it. It only needs an extra card (either a sac outlet or Blood Artist effect) to combo with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed which will still often be cheaper on the mana to cast than just Triskelion .

Cryptolith Rite is strictly better than Citanul Hierophants . I'd swap that in for it.

Unless you're building the deck around it, I'd cut anything with Landfall. It's almost never worth it if you're not making it a big theme in your deck.

I'm not a fan of Faerie Macabre . There are better cards for graveyard hate. Bojuka Bog comes to mind which you should run if you really need the grave hate. If you're insistent on having a spell fill that slot, Shred Memory is better as it also acts as a tutor for a 2 cmc card.

Pack Rat is unnecessary. I'd focus on the saproling tokens. You'll have better synergy in the deck that way.

I also don't think you're running enough elves to get the most out of Elvish Archdruid . I'd cut that in favor of other ramp. The ramp you have in the deck already is pretty good without him.

I notice you have Kitchen Finks which is an excellent combo piece, but have you considered running any undying creatures (besides the effect of Mikaeus, the Unhallowed )? I highly recommend Young Wolf as he's an easy route to getting as many tokens as you want. Strangleroot Geist or Butcher Ghoul can also be good. You could run more persist creatures if you like as well. I've liked having Puppeteer Clique and Woodfall Primus in my deck since if you can recur them over and over, you get some awesome effects. If you want cheap ones to play, Safehold Elite is a possibility, and Modern Masters now has Putrid Goblin which is basically Butcher Ghoul but with persist instead of undying.

Protean Hulk has been the center of most of my wins. Pattern of Rebirth is a quick way to cheat him out, but you should consider Natural Order as well since it gets the hulk out just as quickly. I see Karmic Guide , but I don't see Reveillark or Saffi Eriksdotter . I would highly recommend running at least one if not both of them. They create an endless recursion combo that lets you get everything back from your graveyard or trigger a Blood Artist effect to kill the table. Now I assume you use Leonin Relic-Warder with Karmic to go infinite. That's good, but I still say having the recursion availability to access your graveyard is a big advantage.

I don't know what your meta is like, but adding a bit more removal might help as well. At the very least Anguished Unmaking is better than Utter End and worth the switch.

Anyway sorry for the super long comment. I just really like Ghave and wanted to leave some constructive criticism to help you with your deck. I generally prefer that kind of feedback myself. Hopefully this helps.

Cheers!

Daedalus19876 on Black Plague, On The Rocks: Yawgmoth EDH [PRIMER]

Shyachi33: Thanks for the comment!

It's... cute? Honestly, the real issue is that 1) I have no interest in running Triskelion in this deck, since he's utterly useless outside that combo, and 2) I have very few ways to protect that combo from counterspells or removal in mono-black, and if it's disrupted I'm SOL.

I suppose in this deck I could run a pile like Defense Grid / Contamination , Ashnod's Altar , Weaponcraft Enthusiast , Nim Deathmantle , Zulaport Cutthroat , with Yawg providing the method of draw... But then the question is whether it's actually NECESSARY, ya know?

I could run Zulaport Cutthroat too if I wanted. Better than Blood Artist in that it hits each opponent, and isn’t a 0/1. Worse in that it only cares about my things dying.

That being said, I’m not sure I really need any of the three here. 90% of the time this deck wins with Triskelion + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . The zombie tokens are primarily a distraction and a back up win condition.

Regoober on Necrotic Ooze Combo Compendium

Phyrexian Devourer + Triskelion in the yard usually means you can exile enough cards to machine gun down the world, but i play EDH.

I'm really happy about the Scribnibblers combo, though.

So i see you have sheoldred and Jarad, but some cards that really make those nuts are Phyrexian Devourer (jarad can wipe a table with this) and Triskelion + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . Fauna Shaman can put the right cards in your hand and the grave. Necrotic Ooze is insane in grave decks, and another card that can cause gravyard decks to win on the spot is Buried Alive . All that should take a little pressure of the genesis win con and provide more win con outlets, but i also play a competetive meren so i understand im a little biased towards the reanimation side of things. Life from the loam is one of my favorite golgari cards (i know its mono green, but we all know where it goes lol) so congrats on this badass looking page btw well done! Im a little jelous lol. Good luck!

Bazzul on One card combo Demonlord Belzenlok

Thank you for your comments! I added some of your suggestions. I highly recommend you check the maybeboard it has a lot of cards that could fit in the deck depending on your meta, playstyle and how much damage you are willing to take from Demonlord Belzenlok .

ShinyZ, in regards to protection for Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion from exile cards such as Path to Exile you can always Soul Spike + 1 dmg with Triskelion to kill Mikaeus, the Unhallowed in response and then cast Living Death . However if in your meta you still have problems keeping your combo online, you can always have alternative combos such as Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond or Lich + Repay in Kind . In regards to Solemn Simulacrum I think there are simply better ramp cards (check the ramp section in the maybeboard, I think I have most of the 4 cmc ramp cards).
