Standard* MLBurt


Sept. 28, 2012

Grisly Salvage was underperforming, so I'm swapping it out for Rancor. I may find replacements for the two flashback spells as well, since they were in for a little fun synergy with salvage (though Sever the Bloodline will definitely be remaining in the sideboard, at least).

I was confused why you're running Corpsejack Menace

then I saw Primordial Hydra and the 8 scavenge creatures.

I commend you.

My build is called Corpsejackers. :) Go Golgari!

If this was'nt Standard, I would have suggested Doubling Season , but Standard it is. Really nice idea though, I think this will win you a lot of games!

If you wanted, you could check out my decks too? +1 from me though! :D

@Long_Con: I originally considered going with some undying creatures, like you did, but I found the synergy between Scavenge and Undying was undesirable (or, rather, the lack of synergy was). Champion of Lambholt was a strong contender, but it got edged out by the Hydra (which can in this deck be played as a 3-drop with few problems).

@SquidMonk3y: I'll try and take a look

Are you thinking of adding any proliferation in there? Just wondering

I have definitely been considering the Hydra since realizing the potential with the Menace!

Only playtesting will tell... I also have a couple of other Golgari builds, with a hint of blue in them. Lotleth Gravebeats and Ruinator-Troll. Both of them employ Lotleth Troll in ways that I found don't synergize with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord .

SquidMonk3y: Proliferate is entirely rotating out, unfortunately! OR else I'd be building an card:Azor's Elocutors deck reeeeeeal fast!! (Still might!)

I'm not a fan of Golgari Charm... Maybe some Murders instead?

I like golgari charm for its versatility; it can save all my creatures, nuke delvers (considered Tragic Slip for the same reason but passed), and destroy some of the harsher graveyard hate they've put in RtR
