This is a deck I built around Necrotic Ooze. The main goal is to get Fyndhorn Elder and Pili-Pala into the graveyard using either Fauna Shaman or Lotleth Troll, and then Necrotic Ooze can make infinite mana. This mana can be used to get all our creatures with activated abilities into the graveyard using Fauna Shaman's ability. Avatar of Woe gets rid of the opponent's creatures, Arcanis the Omnipotent and Griselbrand are good card draw, Mindshrieker, Lotleth Troll, and Scavenging Ooze all make necrotic ooze really big, Jace's Archivist is another discard outlet that also refills our hand. Gifts Ungiven has some strong packages, my favorite one for this deck is Gnaw to the Bone, Unburial Rites, Necrotic Ooze, and Fauna Shaman. No matter what, with those four cards, I can find whatever I'm looking for in the next couple turns, and it ensures I can gain life somehow in case I'm not likely to survive very long. AEtherling is kind of a jack of all trades, he can make the ooze unblockable, buff him up for quick kils, and flicker for protection. Advice is very appreciated.

One hundred thousand times yes. This deck is fricken awesome! It seems that aggressive decks would be able to get under you before you can get your combo going. Possibly try to go a little bit of a control route with something like Ensnaring Bridge? Also, is Eternal Witness too slow for the deck? In case you wheel or Thought Scour something that you may need later?

Why no King Macar, the Gold-Cursed? He could let you remove all your opponent's stuff, and ramp you ahead.

Thanks Pheardemons and x12721!

It's true that the deck can be slow to start out, maybe some control elements wouldn't be a bad idea. I'll try to think of what to take out.

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed would be nuts in here if he had an activated ability. Unfortunately Inspired is a triggered ability, so Necrotic Ooze can't steal it.

Ah, that's right. I forgot about that! Still, this is a solid deck! I like it!

Ooh, how about Training Grounds? Maybe something with a token generator like Sliver Queen, but modern legal.
