Maybe splash in blue for a Laboratory Maniac and some skaabs?

Oh shit, Skaabs!! I don't want to be counting on the Maniac, but I am DEFINITELY going to look into blue! After all, this is Ravnica, home of colour-fixing! Thanks for the idea, I LOVE Skaab Ruinator !

Well, as you posted on another loleth deck, thats another deck idea. with Skaab Ruinator , youll be getting rid of the creatures to make your wurm and such bigger. i meant like, armored skaab, or the ones that made you self mill.

Yes, I see! Self-mill works with a lot of this deck, hmm...it doesn't work that well with the Troll though. It doesn't really HURT his ideal conditions, but it doesn't give me creatures to discard either.

Self-mill would work with Gravecrawler , Veilborn Ghoul , Kessig Cagebreakers , Grim Flowering , Creeping Renaissance ... tough to splash blue at this point though. I think I'm going to have to build ANOTHER deck to try out the self-mill Skaabs. Is there a limit to how many decks you can build without a Premium Membership??

Anyways, please have a look at the deck you unintentionally inspired: Ruinator-Troll!!

I really don't feel like Blue strengthens this deck enough at the moment to justify adding it.

Should really have Jarad!

Jarad and the Lotleth Troll have an anti-synergy in a way... true, the Trolol fills up the graveyard which pumps Jarad, but when the creatures are dumping straight from your hand to the GY, then Jarad has no chance to sacrifice them, which is his greatest ability IMO.

This deck is one that I made after realizing that clash of abilities... I have a deck designed for Jarad-style fun: Corpsejackers

You might be right about the blue, BUfels, and it might come out, but I want to playtest for a bit first, and see. Filling up my graveyard with creatures via the Troll only to cast them with the Lich seems fun to me!

Jarad was originally in the deck, and testing is what made me take him out.
