You should look into Call to the Kindred ! It was INSANE in my Blue Zombie deck! Also card:Geralf's Mindcrusher might not be that bad! or Thought Scour Revive just in case you mill a card you need. So many applications!!! I can't wait to get my hands on this set!!!!!!! Oh and why no creatures with Scavenge?
Scavenge will make it in there, it's a no-brainer with the Troll... I want to test the effectiveness of some of these other cards with each other and the Troll first.
I looked at Call to the Kindred , and I thought card:Descendants' Path was a more sensible one because it stays out, and is cheaper.
I also just realized that Farseek is probably not the mana ramp I'm looking for. This deck wants creatures, and Birds of Paradise would be ideal. I hope it gets reprinted!! Otherwise, Arbor Elf I guess.
LOL at the self-mill suggestions... that idea scares me a little. I think I want to try and creature-focus the deck a little more if I can, and that's two instants and an enchantment.
Thanks for the feedback, I love feedback!
Your land base seems almost okay. I say almost, because you have less green mana costs than you need the mana for. One setup ive come up with is:
That's for if you decide to stick with what you've got here. The blue/black mana seems fine. What I usually do for a deck's mana, is count up all the symbols of one color, then put in a certain amount of dual-lands for each, counting in the fact that they come in tapped, and what colors seem any heavier than others. The only reason you should keep the forests in is for maybe a turn-1 Arbor Elf .
Hope this helps. I'll start following you and see how you do, you seem to be a very promising deckbuilder.:)
I have another Lotleth deck, Lotleth Gravebeats, where I run a couple of Grim Flowering s... this version has Skaab Ruinator , Havengul Runebinder , and Dreg Mangler all exiling creatures from my graveyard, which works against ideal Grim Flowering conditions.
Thanks for the idea, though, please feel free to share any more... this deck and Lotleth Gravebeats and Corpsejackers are all just sticking my toe into the new Golgari waters, and there is plenty of room to hone them!
