Troll Ascetic Discussion
1 month ago
Some cheap cards I can think of off the top of my head that might be worth getting for this deck would be Arcanum Wings, Wild Defiance, Mask of Avacyn, Jhessian Infiltrator, Troll Ascetic and of course Slippery Bogle. Sigil of Sleep also pairs well with Invisible Stalker.

You could have more success with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Collected Company, and scaled 3 mana green creatures as a green aggro deck. You could still use the dryads that way as early game damage but with those added cards you could have the steam to end games before turn 6 or 7. In the world of modern it would still be relatively budget friendly too. The fetchlands you have in the deck cost more collectively than those suggestions. Leatherback Baloth, Silhana Ledgewalker, Troll Ascetic, and Sacred Wolf in a collected company deck with Old-Growth Dryads, Predator's Strike, Predator Ooze, Vines of Vastwood, and Rancor would be a very intense aggro deck.
Just a thought, but the added power and hexproof would really boost the potency.

Protection is Spellskite & Troll Ascetic's ability to regenerate. I don't expect this deck to be competitive, & I pretty much put it together as a way to try to play the janky Sunbond combo lol. I want to try to get it going in casual play. I figured a good alternative target for it would be Troll Ascetic, & he is a good sword-wielder, so i put a Godsend in there. If I wanted to make the deck actually good, I would definitely cut Sunbond & Troll Ascetic/Godsend, put in 4x Path to Exile, focus more on ramping & 3x Archangel of Thune, maybe 4x, and put in maybe a Grand Abolisher or two, and definitely 4x Chord of Calling. My whole purpose here is to try to build a casual deck using Sunbond.

Also, it would be a whole different deck, but instead of a control shell, you could go bant. You'd then get Presence of Gond, and you could play Geist of Saint Traft, Thrun, the Last Troll or Troll Ascetic, or even Sylvan Caryatid as hexproof creatures to just put the presence on. You could also play Beck / Call and draw a million cards when you make all the tokens.

Lotleth Troll and Troll Ascetic are just begging to be in a Varolz deck. Also, If you can afford it, Mesmeric Orb is a great mill card to try and get your critters in grave. Sure, It can hurt you late game, but if you're seeing late game, then you haven't done your job right. I am also a huge fan of Nyx Weaver in any self mill deck, as it can save some key cards. On that note, more options (some non-budget than others) include Life from the Loam, Entomb, and Eternal Witness, Nether Traitor, Tormented Soul, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, and Primal Rage.

Happy i could help :)
Kitchen Finks is a great card and the perfect creature for your needs. Eternal Witness is just as fitting, but limiting yourself to 1-2 copies seems right, since drawing too many of them can be become awkward with nothing meaningful to return. It's just a 2/1, so its ability really has to deliver. Unfortunately, Eldritch Evolution exiles itself upon resolution. (However, there are matchups where it's quite powerful to have Eternal Witnesses returning eachother in a loop whenever one of them dies. But those matchups are too infrequent to justify more than 2 copies in my opinion.)
As for other 3-drop creatures to sacrifice, i am not really sure what the best options are for your colors. Troll Ascetic is a good card for sure, but usually you don't really want to sacrifice it. Wolfir Avenger and Yasova Dragonclaw i'm not a big fan of, both require quite a bit of mana, otherwise they aren't all that great. Carven Caryatid is good if you sacrifice it or not, but such a defensive creature unfortunately doesn't fit well into your strategy. Tuktuk the Explorer can be insane if you can make him die, otherwise it's a 3 mana Raging Goblin. Goblin Ruinblaster seems really good, but it usually requires 4 mana. Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Borderland Ranger or Filigree Familiar might be okay, with the Familiar being the best of the three in my opinion.
As for 5-drops, i like the dragons and Thragtusk a lot, Blitz Hellion i don't have any experience with so i can't judge it, but Urabrask the Hidden isn't quite on the same level as the others i believe. An interactive card like Acidic Slime might be better, since that solves problems the other cards can't handle (like Ensnaring Bridge or Oblivion Stone). A total of 8 five mana creatures seems okay, but i would rather go down than up in number.
Maybe you could fit a Kessig Wolf Run into your mana base, it's quite a nice mana sink. 22-23 lands total seems right though.
I think i would sideboard Forked Bolt to beat aggressive decks, Ancient Grudge against Affinity etc, Magus of the Moon to punish greedy mana bases, and Burning-Tree Shaman to shut down some combo decks.
1-2 Reclamation Sage and the Thragtusk can definitely stay in the sideboard, and Loaming Shaman and Guttural Response can be good tools as well, the other cards i don't think you really need.
