Dakmor Salvage Discussion

kingtuf on Glissa the Traitor needs some help

3 days ago

Any Glissa, the Traitor deck rude enough to play Mindslaver should be running Forbidden Orchard. These three cards form a perma-lock on a single player so long as you are not disrupted. Also, consider looking into some self mill. With Glissa, your graveyard becomes a toolbox/hand-extension that you really want to see filled. Dakmor Salvage, Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug are all cheap dredgers that can turn one card draw into 2-5 in the graveyard. Hell, even Golgari Grave-Troll is cheap now that it's banned in modern. If you want to break the bank a bit, Life from the Loam and good utility lands like Strip Mine, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or Cabal Coffers are all very happy to live in this deck. If you're looking for cards to drop, I know they can be fun and are a little safer to use with Glissa's ability, but cards like Nemesis Mask and Viridian Longbow are so, so much better off as instant speed removal spells like Putrefy or Windgrace's Judgment. Golgari removal spells hit a wider range of targets and many run at instant speed, making them far more versatile than the cheeky equipment shenanigans Glissa can do. Remember, all she cares about is seeing a creature die, she doesn't need to be the one to do it! Hope something here helps you out. I have a 75% Glissa deck that runs several of the cards I mentioned here and I have to say she is easily my favorite commander. Best of luck!

Other notable cards could also be Borborygmos Enraged, Living Twister, Molten Vortex, Tectonic Reformation, and in this deck Dakmor Salvage would be a staple. Fetch lands are also good, they don't need to be the expensive ones but something like Blighted Woodland, Warped Landscape, and Myriad Landscape are very good budget options. Edge of Autumn, and Harrow are ones I forgot to mention as well.

The deck is a classic Gitrog combo deck. The combo is: The Gitrog Monster + Discard Outlet on the board with Dakmor Salvage in your hand. This allows you to draw your entire deck because of the Eldrazi Titan's shuffling your graveyard into your deck when they are put into your graveyard. You either discard them or mill them via dredge. Then you play Lotus Petal infinite times to produce infinite mana and either cast Praetor's Grasp infinite times or Torment of Hailfire where x = infinite.

SorrowTheMad on Gitrog Dredge

I used to play a somewhat similar deck for Gitrog and I might try out your build as it seems a lot more competitive than mine was.

One of my favorite cards to play in the deck was Skirge Familiar. It gets you infinite mana really fast, particularly if you have Dakmor Salvage in hand and Gitrog on board, since you just infinitely dredge it back to hand each time you discard. I'd then use all my draw triggers to draw my entire deck, cast one of my win-con spells (Liliana's Indignation, Praetor's Grasp, or Faith of the Devoted) to kill either everyone by milling them out or using Familiar with Faith to drain everyone to death by using the black mana he produces to pay 1 for Faith. I play a lot of Kingdom at my LGS so I needed some wincons that don't kill everyone at once on the chance that I'm the King, Protector or Traitor. And if you hold up one of the Titans in hand with your discard outlet you can sorta protect yourself from someone trying to force you to draw with zero cards in your deck. Card is really good, I love it.

It all depends on what you need at that moment. For example: You have Gitrog and a discard outlet on board, then you should fetch Golgari Grave-Troll and start dredging for Dakmor Salvage to win the game. There are times that I fetched Collector Ouphe to slow opponents down.

Some Vindicate in the sideboard might be handy to deal with nearly anything, though Ashen Rider is probably a better choice since you can reanimate.

I think I second mana-less dredge, in part since you don't have any Dakmor Salvage in here to offer a transition if you needed to dredge lots of your lands, and tbh, I don't see you getting many lands into hand, but I am not an experienced dredge player.

As an alternative to reanimation, you might consider Gurmag Angler or Tombstalker , either can take over a game in a pinch, and you should have no trouble meeting the requirements.

Tuned Gitrog Monster combo list under a budget restriction. The goal is to try and find Dakmor Salvage and go off in a loop. Looking for recommendations about budget optimisation-currently not sure if I need an Eldrazi titan for shuffle, and whether to cut Hermit druid.

Cut Worn Powerstone for Basalt Monolith as agreed

Cut Barren Moor for Deserted Temple - Comes in tapped and cycling is a weak source of draw. Doesn't even count as a swamp

Cut Dakmor Salvage for Volrath's Stronghold - I see no reason dakmor should be in the deck.

Another card I forgot to mention, but cut Gate to Phyrexia for Meteor Golem - I know I recommended gate to phyrexia but I don't wholeheartedly love it since it's only artifacts and only on upkeep. It is definitely worth testing. That being said, whether you cut gate or another card, you should add meteor golem. It's a creature that you can recur and most of the time you aren't paying 7 for it anyways. It hits pretty much anything aside from lands so thats very useful.

How often do you find yourself using the flash on Dictate of Erebos , as I might cut it for Grave Pact . It fits on curve better with your commander. Triple black shouldn't be too hard.

Cut Solemn Simulacrum for Rings of Brighthearth - Sad robot is nice in other builds that are less competitive, but this build (given your low land count) seems a bit more powerful so sad robot seems less impactful.

Cut Sangromancer / Yarok's Fenlurker / Syr Konrad, the Grim / Myr Retriever for Sensei's Divining Top - Not sure which of these is best to cut. I've never even SEEN Yarok's Fenlurker, that's a very cool card. Weird, but cool. 2 mana exile hand hate on each opponent with an irrelevant buff seems nice.
