Woodland Cemetery Discussion

You know, I really like the idea of sacrificing Viridian Emissary for mana ramp. As much as I like young wolf's undying you might consider ditching him for Blisterpod just for the mana. I feel like you're going to have a problem casting Soulcage Fiend early because of this double black mana cost. Since your ramp is green you're probably going to want to have more forest cards than swamps so you don't get mana screwed in the early game. Also your land base is really light; I don't think 20 lands is going to cut it here. You're definitely going to need to add some B/G lands like Overgrown Tomb, Woodland Cemetery, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, or Jungle Hollow, depending on your needs / budget. I'm not completely sold on Disciple of Griselbrand as a morbid enabler, but I can't think of anything else at the moment. But overall I think this idea is very interesting and could be super fun deck. +1

Well basically, you can take this shell and add whatever creatures you want to it and it'll work. I would highly advise to keeping creatures in the 2 mana range with only a few cmc 3 or above. No matter how appealing Thragtusk looks it's typically better to stick to Kitchen Finks.

Why didn't you just update your Spring Into Death deck list? There's only like 2 cards different, haha.
Now on to the real meat:
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Combo
- Turn 1: Play a one drop ramp creature.
- Turn 2: Play Buried Alive and fetch Mike and Triskelion.
- Turn 3: Play Victimize, bring Mike and Trike out and ping infinitely to win.
Or tutor for Defense of the Heart and win the turn after you cast it.
Necrotic Ooze Combo
- Play Buried Alive or Survival of the Fittest.
- Grab and put Triskelion and Phyrexian Devourer into the graveyard, and get Necrotic Ooze into play.
- Make sure Necrotic Ooze gets out last if using Survival to tutor them.
- Remove all cards from your library to burn opponent(s) for the CMC of all cards in your library.
Once it's out, the only thing that can interrupt this is Split Second since you can respond by adding and removing counters.
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord Combo
This requires some knowledge of how the stack works.
- Exile cards from your library until Phyrexian Devourer's ability is put on the stack.
- In response to the ability, continue exiling cards to beef him up more.
- Still before allowing the sacrifice to resolve, sack him to Jarad to smack your opponents for a ton of damage, similarly to the aforementioned Ooze-combo.
Colorless Mana Combo
- Have/get Ashnod's Altar in play.
- Play Nim Deathmantle.
- Play Grave Titan, pop up two 2/2 tokens.
- Sack the two tokens to Altar, then sack Titan to get a total of six .
- Use 4 of that to make Deathmantle grab Titan back and get you two more tokens
Repeat this as many times as desired, netting 2 colorless mana every loop.

I like the deck. How is Hissing Quagmire working out in comparison to Treetop Village? Also, is Blooming Marsh working out better than Woodland Cemetery? Vault Skirge, Courser of Kruphix, and Nameless Inversion are all awesome with Tarmogoyf and Grim Flayer. I would love some feedback on my rock deck when you get some time. I've been fine tuning it all week.

I feel that adding Corpsejack Menace would not be a bad idea. I think you should get rid of Sheltered Aerie and add Utopia Sprawl or Unbridled Growth instead. Also, adding 1-3 Llanowar Wastes, Woodland Cemetery, or even Temple of Malady to take care of its cost.

You went 0-4 because that list isn't great as-is and it was your first outing. Elves is hardly gonna kill every deck in Modern but it really isn't an awful deck, and it's probably amongst the top 20 or so Modern builds (though in the lower part of that 20, tbh) It can beat Infect (ahem, Melira, Sylvok Outcast), it can beat Skred, it can beat a lot of decks, especially if you splash black for good removal. But you can also stay mono-green and do okay without investing a ton more.
And I think your deck can get way better without tons of super-expensive stuff, or you might find a way to make some decent trades for stuff you want. Though Boza is right that there's no way around buying 4X CoCo.
On the manabase - for 2-color, you can live without fetchlands. Blooming Marsh and Overgrown Tomb are the best options, but you can also see if you can grab Woodland Cemetery, Llanowar Wastes, and who knows- you might grab a cheap Gilt-Leaf Palace or two.
For other SB stuff, you might think about a couple Chord of Calling and using a creatures toolbox approach, which often works better than spells with a CoCo deck anyway. There's Brain Maggot, Reclamation Sage, Scavenging Ooze, and Kitchen Finks. You could go dig up some weird,cheap, unexpected SB options like Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Eyes of the Wisent, Creeping Corrosion, Obstinate Baloth, and Thragtusk if you can't afford the usual stuff (like Cavern of Souls).
And look, you won't go 4-0, certainly not until you learn the deck and get good at playing it. But beating a $1000-plus deck with a budget-ish build that isn't a straight-up netdeck is the most fun thing you can do in MTG.
Good luck in any case.

Eternal Witness is a strong EDH card already, but since you're particularly focused around the graveyard I suggest it even more.
Buried Alive immediately pitches three creature cards into your graveyard for reanimation later and so that Jarad gets a +3/+3 buff.
Golgari Grave-Troll fits the theme of dumping cards in your graveyard and getting better for the number of creatures in it.
Acidic Slime is a powerfully destructive creature that blows up a difficult permanent and then sticks around as an annoying deathtouch blocker.
Living Death can be a win condition/boardwipe combination if you've successfully stockpiled your graveyard over the course of the game.
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed allows for double sacrificing (and with a persist creature, infinite sacrificing), and is a strong lord overall.
Sidisi, Undead Vizier goes along with the sacrificing theme and is a tutor on a stick. Tutoring is essential in EDH.
Life from the Loam is a premiere dredge card that recurs back all those lands that would be lost.
Deathrite Shaman continues to be an excellent card that is basically the Golgari version of Grim Lavamancer, except it is also a mana elf and lifegain.
Phyrexian Delver is your budget Reanimate on a stick. Strong and effective for its cost.
Phyrexian Arena is a crazy draw engine that gives SO much back in value over the course of a game, and with a negligible downside with a starting 40 life total.

I am considering removing one Plains, one Swamp, Brushland, and Woodland Cemetery in favor of lands that provide more to the mana base. Perhaps wedge/shard lands within the color identity of the BIG TASTY BEATDOWN. The card costs containing take up half of the pie chart. Though I doubt the land base part of the pie chart is including lands that provide any mana, it's enough to take into consideration.
What do you think?
