The deck makes use of the shaman, jarad, and varolz to maximize the use of all cards. In addition, the deck focuses on undercosted creatures like tormented hero, boon satyr, and desecration demon because they are great and maximize the scavenge.
Updated deck for JOU, this deck feels strong enough that I feel bad when I play it.
So I tested the ooze and lotleth over the tormented heros. The ooze didn't make the cut because I found the shamans did a better job at graveyard control. Lotleth did make the cut however, as they got broken late game and early game. In addition, with lotleth as the main beater I might take nylea out (hopefully in favor of Pherika in Journey into Nyx). Also this deck won my game day.
You need ooze to thin out your graveyard with deadbridge chant.

MetaTheorist that would interact poorly with jarad and valroz, you would rather have them in the yard then exiled by ooze,

Soso188, I believe he is talking about exiling non creature spells to increase the chances of deadbridge of getting a free creature onto the battlefield.

Considerd the Bow of Nylea? helps filter cards out of graveyard as well as the other effects and adds to devotion to green

Corcast, That said, the ooze is a great defence against another ooze. they try to exile your card, you exile it first, unless they want to waste mana for nothing you can protect other cards in your graveyard with the Shaman / Ooze exiling after theirs on the stack.
I would definitely recommend sideboarding 2x Scavenging Ooze

Garruk seems kinda points in the deck, at least M14 version does. no creature is above 4.
I don't see the need for mana ramp with dorks aka Elvish Mystic , as nothing cost above 4.
perhaps the lawlz troll, Lotleth Troll ?, he is kinda nice with the enchantment.

unless of course instead of lotleth, you put some extreme huge fatties that you can get back with chant, but then again if you draw them you can then get rid of them with the troll. I say for fun and it might be super effective...
run some Lotleth Troll s and some incredibly huge fatties that you would never play with really.
get the Scavenging Ooze to get rid of the non creature spells like someone else suggested.
the combo just sounds sick.

imagine getting this back at "random" from your graveyard once you have stacked the odds with Scavenging Ooze .
really it doesn't even have to be a green card :)
Whatever is huge, haha.
