2nd in Casual Standard Tourney amongst friends! — Aug. 20, 2012

Game 1: M&T excellent WIncon vs. Delver: Spiders FTW!!!! 2-1

Game 2: M&T excellent WIncon vs. Mono Green: Easy Win milled everything perfectly and Jarad (proxy) swung for massive damage, second game wolf tokens take it easily 2-0

Game 3: M&T excellent WIncon vs. Solarflare: won first game after a long struggle he got me down to three health, second Game I lost due to bad draw and he popped out all his friends rather quickly! third match lost due to his Sun Titan and friends took him down to six though! 1-2


— Aug. 20, 2012

Thinking about adding Ground seal to protect my graveyard :D Sideboard or Mainboard?

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord <333 — Aug. 16, 2012

made Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord Proxys it makes this deck sooo powerful I fling splinterfrights for massive damage >:D also I dropped gnaw to the bone to sideboard and added an addition swamp and a Woodland Cemetery! and moved my ghost quarter to sideboard as well XD

— Aug. 14, 2012

I want to add GhoulTree to this deck! what should take out?

— Aug. 11, 2012

Took out deranged assistant and added screeching skaabs to speed up the mill :D

Tioras says... #1

Mulch and card:Tracker's Instincts Are what I typically see in these builds online. They work excellently to get cards in the graveyard. I'd drop the Thought Scour and Deranged Assistant s. Also, why no Ghoultree ?

August 5, 2012 7:20 p.m.

Patrique says... #2

Thanks for the suggestions Tioras I like the Ghoultree Idea, I play Deranged Assistant to popout CageBreakers and spiders out quicker and it definitely :D

I will try and get the tree's though XD probably only a dollar card at my store!

August 5, 2012 7:39 p.m.

CrimsonKing says... #3

Sweet deck! I do think that you can benefit from adding Armored Skaab and Mulch .

August 7, 2012 3:49 a.m.

Patrique says... #4

running 3 Armored Skaab and I like dawntreader elk more it gets me a land and one critter into my grave yard!

Thanks for the compliments user:CrimsonKing69

August 7, 2012 3:54 a.m.

CrimsonKing says... #5

I have a similar deck you should check out Body pile, It's really fun to play!

August 7, 2012 4:36 a.m.

Jokernaught says... #6

Most Excellent. +1

Maybe card:Memory's Journey could help out if you Mulch ed something you wanted?

August 8, 2012 4:39 a.m.

Patrique says... #7

thanks :D I cant wait for October so I can start running Jarad in this deck his info has leaked and he is perfect for this build XD honestly I love this deck

Memories Journey I may sideboard

MadPesky says... #8

I actually run something very similar to this. I have two Ghoultree s, four Mindshrieker s, and two Garruk Relentless  Flip (his flip ultimate is awesome with this). I also run three Bonehoard s. This deck concept is a ton of fun, so it's nice to see others using it.

August 9, 2012 4:16 a.m.

Fungusmonk says... #9

This is cool, could definitely get hilariously hard to deal with haha

August 9, 2012 4:26 a.m.

Patrique says... #10

I like the Ghoultree Idea >:D I originally had bonehoard in this deck but decided it wasn't worth keeping! I would love a couple Garruk Relentless I'll put him on my wish list! haha Ill try out the mindshriekers too cause I know for fact that it has gone significantly down in price :D

It's great to know that Dredge players are still out there! I'll definately be changing some things around thanks MadPesky

August 9, 2012 4:26 a.m.

Zegan says... #11

i built a version of this deck on this site, called boneyard, splashed black for shenanigans. Mulch is a must have for the deck IMO. also, i suggest Boneyard Wurm in a deck like this, lots of redundancy is good. last bit for you, id try to up the creature count any way possible. 21 dosent seem high enough for this kind of deck

August 10, 2012 7:06 p.m.

MadPesky says... #12

No problem. I am here to help.

As for Boneyard Wurm s: those are great filler until you get the cards that you want.

Also, I like the card:Tracker's Instincts idea, but personally I went with Forbidden Alchemy , as it allows a greater range of help.

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure was filmed at my old high school.

Huh.

August 12, 2012 3:11 p.m.

Patrique says... #14

back to the future was filmed at mine XD haha any suggestions zandl

August 12, 2012 3:20 p.m.

zandl says... #15

Run a Swamp instead of a Woodland Cemetery . That way, you can fetch it out with Dawntreader Elk instead of relying solely on Birds or drawing 1 card out of 60.

August 12, 2012 3:24 p.m.

Roborapter says... #16

personally i would replace thought scour with dream twist just for the fact that you can flash back dream twist but that's just me

August 14, 2012 4:01 a.m.

Patrique says... #17

oh agreed agreed indeed! thanks Roborapter

August 14, 2012 4:08 a.m.

Roborapter says... #18

glad i could help! i run a very similar deck for standard and if you want any other suggestions then i would suggest ulvenwald tracker for when you get that splinterfright up and it kills birds of paradise (which you could possibly run along with artful dodge)

August 14, 2012 4:11 a.m.

faak122 says... #19

here's a suggestion in response to your Ghoultree update.

I'd say either drop an Armored Skaab or Splinterfright for the Ghoultree , well worth it!

August 14, 2012 7:13 p.m.

Patrique says... #20

I'll definately drop a Slinterfright good idea faak122

August 16, 2012 3:38 a.m.

Korlan says... #21

Vapor Snag Seems infinitely better then Silent Departure to me. +1 what are you gonna remove for Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord ?

August 16, 2012 3:10 p.m.

Patrique says... #22

I removed my Gnaw to the Bone to the sideboard! and I dropped Silent Departure to return Thought Scour to my deck for more Mill :D thanks Korlan

August 16, 2012 5:48 p.m.

MR H3AT says... #23

This is the best self mill deck that I think I have ever seen. Everything just flows so well. Nicely done and +1 from me.

Thanks user:MR%20H3AT always nice to hear! XD

p.s. what is in and out?

September 2, 2012 11:08 p.m.

Patrique says... #26

In and Out is a burger Chain exclusive to California and I think there may be a few in Arizona! It's considered to be the greatest of all burgers! XD

Thanks for the +1 atreyujames

September 3, 2012 4:50 a.m.

atreyujames says... #27

man, me and my fellow Canadians must be missing out then. all we have are our poutines to eat in our igloos as we watch hockey and then we ride our polar bears to tim hortons XD

September 3, 2012 5:03 a.m.

Patrique says... #28

Definitely missing out! I WANT TO TRY POUTINES SOOOO BADLY! haha

September 3, 2012 5:09 a.m.

atreyujames says... #29

all you need is fries, cheese curds and gravy. get all that together and BOOM!! you have the most unhealthy concoction known to french canadians

September 3, 2012 5:35 a.m.

squire1 says... #30

Fun deck overall. After some playtesting, I think that you may have to much self mill. You may want to replace either Dream Twist or Screeching Skaab with some couterspells or even some Farseek

September 6, 2012 7:28 p.m.

Patrique says... #31

Is it getting mana screwed? I'll check that out thanks for the feedback squire1

September 6, 2012 11:07 p.m.

squire1 says... #32

not mana screwed, i had enough to operate. I felt like it needed more fixing. Jarad did not always drop when I wanted because I only had one black or something like that. Just needed a bit of tweaking to the base.

September 7, 2012 10:53 a.m.

Patrique says... #33

Cool, I tweeked it a bit! just waiting till more spoilers pop out till I do much more editing!

ConBurnMadMan says... #34

No Birds of Paradise ...that hurts this deck...also see rest in peace, see also card:Tormod's Crypt, see also card:Grafdigger's Cage, see also Ground Seal ... :(

September 20, 2012 11:56 p.m.

Patrique says... #35

Ground seal protects my grave from Tarmod's and Grafdigger's Cage!I know poor BOP I'll miss you :( I just need a replacement any ideasConBurnMadMan

brandoncimino says... #36

The problem is that your tokens from Kessig Cagebreakers and Spider Spawning are vulnerable to Fog and sweepers. Sweepers are pretty heavy in standard because of Hexproof, and with Azorius, we'll still see plenty of Geist of Saint Traft , which means lots of Terminus , Supreme Verdict , Mizzium Mortars , Bonfire of the Damned , Killing Wave ...even Devastation Tide becomes a sweep against tokens, so you'll have to watch out.

September 25, 2012 2:36 a.m.

Patrique says... #37

Yeah definitely Azorius is pretty OP luckily Blue is not the favored color at my shop so Im not to worried n.n Im more worried about Jund Control! TBH

kingl4d says... #40

+1 very nice. I was building one similar to this, checked here and gave up. I don't think it can get much better than this. So hey I'm going to try out your deck at FNM this week since it's so inexpensive, then slop together something a little more personal for next week. I'll follow up with results. One question: how do you sideboard? It seems that everything you have mainboarded is a staple that you'd want regardless of what your opponent throws at you. What are some deciding factors on what you decide to replace for game 2 and 3?

October 24, 2012 9:25 a.m.

Patrique says... #41

Honestly sideboard is difficult with this deck Id reccomend, add some destroy artifacts and enchantment and take out dream twist, the deck has enough mill on its own! I also like throwing in my 2 garruk for the second game as well taking out golgari lich lord! Thanks for the feedback kingl4d

kingl4d says... #42

Ok so I went 2-2 tonight. One match I sort of derped and lost due to user error. Instead of buying back Gnaw to the Bone s I had brought out a Kessig Cagebreakers , causing my Izzet opponent to do a perfect amount of damage to finish me off where I thought I had one more turn. 2 of my opponents I utterly crushed, completely exploding my battlefield with overwhelming force and causing their hopes to be shattered below me. The other 2 were 1-2 losses, the one where I made a miscalculation on their sorcerous potential, the other due to their super-fast Rakdos speed and hidden morbid effects. I was running with this exact deck but had replaced the 3x Dream Twist with Growing Ranks and 2x Garruk Relentless  Flip . I realized Growing Ranks was worthless so I swapped it and a Slitherhead out for the Gnaw to the Bone s. Those cards, in my opinion, should always be mainboard. Because of Rakdos and Izzet's speed, flexibility, and popularity, as well as the time it takes for this deck to start snowballing. It can be countered by big flyers with buffs, so it's necessary to have that extra turn or two survival (+20-ish life) after taking some abuse to flood the board or fling a Splinterfright once you've exhausted your ramp on it. I won one of my games with 1 health remaining. I do think though, that Sundering Growth is a necessary sideboard card. It saved my ass against that Izzet opponent in our second game due to his unrelenting card:Runechanter's Pike. It also managed to supply me with an extra blocker dog from Garruk Relentless  Flip . There are so many decks out there that rely on artifacts and enchantments to get them through the game and the ability to shut that down while bolstering your forces is priceless. There are also other meta sideboard cards to consider, such as Witchbane Orb (since there's so much direct target damage flowing from Rakdos). All in all, this deck was very fun to play, completely out of the meta but still very effective, and leaves your opponents worried the second they see how much you're milling, and WHAT you're milling. Mind you, this is at Card Kingdom in Seattle so this FNM had about 40 attendees and they're all quite competitive. Spiders, wolves, flingers ftw. :] Now on to work on my own weirdness. Great work, Patrique.
