Varolz, the Scar-Striped

Legendary Creature — Troll Warrior

Each creature card in your graveyard has scavenge. The scavenge cost is equal to its mana cost. (Exile a creature card from your graveyard and pay its mana cost: Put a number of +1/+1 counters equal to that card's power on target creature. Scavenge only as a sorcery.)

Sacrifice another creature: Regenerate Varolz, the Scar-Striped.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped Discussion

I'm not a competitive Modern player (yet), but I'll toss in my initial thoughts.

First: Golgari Grave-Troll isn't Modern legal, unfortunately.

Second: I would run Splinterfright over Millstone . If you want to keep open the option of milling your opponent, go up to 4 Sands of Delirium , but it's virtually always better to pick one goal and stick to that.

Third: Overgrown Tomb and maybe Blooming Marsh in place of some basics. They're not really cheap, but they're a very good investment into Modern.

Fourth: Corpsejack Menace and Varolz, the Scar-Striped have no interaction with the rest of the deck. While it is a fun and effective synergy, it doesn't provide much help here. +1/+1 counters is its own archetype.

Good luck, and dredge deep!

I think a great addition to this deck would be Varolz, the Scar-Striped because of cards like Phyrexian Dreadnought and Death's Shadow . They are all pretty great together.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped is a pet card of mine. I have both a Jund and BUG build around him. Bloodrush sounds like an interesting way to fill the yard.

I actually primarily enjoy casual modern and commander. My most delightfully flavorful modern deck is a jund combo of Bloodrush and Varolz, the Scar-Striped . I play a lot of sort of semi-budget commander decks. My more competitve commander brews (still pretty casual but they can do a surprising amount of damage) usually go around 300$.

@Flooremoji the only reason I don't use Charnel Troll is because I dont want to empty out my graveyard. The more creatures in my graveyard the stronger some of my monsters get. Plus if Charnel Troll is out and has been used I won't be able use cards like Undergrowth Scavenger , Varolz, the Scar-Striped , Molderhulk , Disentomb , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord . While the troll is a very good card, it over all would be counter productive to a larger number of cards in this deck.

Brolamog_the_Infinite_Higher on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

I have to say, this tier list is bad. Ishkanah, Grafwidow is nowhere near a high power level Commander, and to put the Spider Tribal Commander above Edgar Markov , Athreos, God of Passage and Skullbriar, the Walking Grave is absurd. Not saying those decks should be raised a tier, I'm just saying they should be ranked higher than a jank spider tribal commander. I also think there's a bias towards infinite mill combos, as Circu, Dimir Lobotomist , Oona, Queen of the Fae and Ambassador Laquatus are not at all comparable to Ghave, Guru of Spores , Narset, Enlightened Master and Prossh, Skyraider of Kher who go infinite in much faster and stronger ways. Varolz, the Scar-Striped is the biggest offender on this list. This is further noted by the deck examples, where the author seemingly pokes fun at Varolz, the Scar-Striped not being that great in cEDH but seems to have a personal bias towards the deck. If we're counting Protean Hulk combo decks as "competitive" there's plenty more worthy commanders to consider. Honestly, this list comes across like the author just put a few decks everyone knows is good at the top (Teferi Stax, Thrasios, ect.) then just based the rest of the list off of personal preference or whatever the local meta is where the author plays.

For the Bellower, Varolz, the Scar-Striped is a great fetchable sacrifice outlet with good synergy with the deck.
