pie chart Necrotic Ooze Inni-standard Combo




Version 1 of my take on the Necrotic Ooze Combo for the Innistrad Standard format.

This deck attempts to maximize use of the Necrotic Ooze/Civilized Scholar Combo while allowing the deck to still fuction with plan B's and C's.

With Civilized Scholar in the graveyard, you can use Necrotic Ooze to discard creatures indefinetly untill you have no more creatures in hand. Since Necrotic Ooze is not a Dual Face Card it has no ability to transform. This is the primary engine of the deck. If you get Grimgrin and Batman (Bloodline Keeper) in the grave, you can create a bat and sac to necrotic ooze indefinetly and attack with a giant ooze.

Every other card in the deck is designed to deal with threats to give you time assemble your combo.

Also, it is important to note that you should realize that the deck can simply go agro and win with your creatures. Civilized Scholar can put your opponent on a quick clock.

Chump blocking with a civilized scholor is not the end of the world, you wanted it in the grave anyways right?

Like the idea, but I think white is too much. How about adding 4x [Forbidden Alchemy] and maybe a single [Bloodshot Trainee] to fill your graveyard and help deal with pesky creatures?

Just wondering, but your deck gave me another idea. With Mirror-Mad Phantasm in the graveyard and an active Ooze on the battlefield along with a Laboratory Maniac (not in this deck list, but for a different combo idea) would you be able to shuffle the Ooze and since the only Mirror-Mad is in the graveyard, mill your deck and win on your upkeep?

Final thoughts...if you decide to keep white in, add Mikaeus, the Lunarch. Gringrim's +1/+1 s could be taken off indefinitely to pump your other creatures.

Brew on!

My initial list had 4x Forbidden Alchemy and I kept cutting them to up my creature density. Found more often then not, having non-creature based draw made my Civilized Scholar  Flip  FlipMTG Card: Homicidal Brute chains with Necrotic Ooze not hit every time.

Red actually has been a strong consideration. I would need to drop white inorder to do it, as 4 color seems rather rough. It gives you access to some pretty cool cards to deal with early aggressive decks. The 2 mana mage from M12 looked like another cheap way to give Necrotic Ooze haste.

Thanks for the comments!
