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

Fatred on Glasscannon Skullbriar

CaptSillva I don't remember why I cut Corpsejack Menace originally, but I think it would be a good re-include.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped Definitely would be good in the deck too. Giving all my creatures Scavenge once they're murdered is a definite upside later.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped is interesting. What about making that a 4-of, and run some critters like Phyrexian Soulgorger or Desecration Elemental that would scavenge for cheap and a whole lot of +1/+1 counters. The non-budget option would be Death's Shadow, but that card belongs in a totally different deck.

Maybe something like Haunted Dead will provide you a way to fill the yard, and get critters to sacrifice or scavenge on to.

Or scavenge, with Varolz, the Scar-Striped and whatever highpower/low-cost creatures you can find.

Flagellum on Gitrog Monster or Ishkanah, Grafwidow?

Gitrog is a lot better than Ishkanah in terms of competitiveness. However, it comes down to do you want to combo or aggro? Neither of those two will be very "original" par se. Mr. Frog relies on the Dakmor Salvage loop and Ishkanah is limited to spiders for the most part (and not a well-supported tribe). So Hypnotoad will let ya win a lot more than Ishkanah, but you might step on your friend's toes. But between the two I'd go for the horny toad. There are other Golgari generals you could run.

Other Golgari generals of note:

Meren of Clan Nel Toth is another Golgari general who is great, but also overplayed. Glissa, the Traitor, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf stax, or Varolz, the Scar-Striped for your dredging + scavenge needs. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord is another one but is very mana intensive.

Vaan on Golgari Grave play/Sacrifce

Desecration Demon has no real synergy with sac/grave play but you have some power dependent effects that can benefit from it.

Savra, Queen of the Golgari lets you make your sac effects symmetrical for only 2 life!

Life's Legacy and Grim Haruspex are good options since you have very little card draw.

Catacomb Sifter and Blisterpod are very common cards on this type of deck, fixing your draws and being effective sac fodder, respectively.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped seems like a pretty straightforward addition.

Palace Siege is a very slow card and both Ambush Viper and Deadly Recluse seems out of place on this deck so i would cut them all out and play around with some of the cards i mentioned.

Theres always Varolz, the Scar-Striped which you could take out 2 cards like 1 Deadbridge Goliath and Doomgape

I take back what I said about Hulk not shifting any placements. I just came across an excelent Varolz, the Scar-Striped list by sickrobot while browsing the cEDH subreddit.

Varolz was pretty shit before the unban, but since he's the cheapest sac outlet in the command zone and in Golgari colors, he's a natural fit for Hulk combo.

This deck seems to be a fast combo build with moderate interaction, low recovery, and few back up plans if Hulk is taken out of the game. Major strengths and major weaknesses is one of the hallmarks of T2.5, so that's where I'll put it for now.
