NicodaPico on Old Rutstein

this deck has alot of mill and ways to get stuff in the graveyard (although missing Golgari Grave-Troll and Golgari Thug) but then...what happens next? like you swing with a big creature(and no Splinterfright?)? not sure what the game plan is here unless you misread old rustein. Some payoffs for milling could be Syr Konrad, the Grim, Kessig Cagebreakers, Dread Return and other good flashback cards, Timeless Witness and Eternal Witness, Genesis and Brawn, Woe Strider, Mausoleum Secrets, Songs of the Damned, just more cards that do stuff in the graveyard or care about the graveyard to go with the mill plan. Living Death so good. Necrogoyf might work. Egon, God of Death  Flip.

also whats the all the dumb discard in the maybeboard lmaoo

Fun deck description, looks like a blast to pilot!

Kessig Wolf Run recently got a reprint, so I think it'd fall into your budget! It's another way to get your damage in, not only in pumping your own creatures but also leaving up mana to pump up someone else's. Another feather in your cap for when you want to start ending the game.

You already have Genesis, so I would also maybe look at fitting a Spore Frog in there somewhere! I've been saved many a time by this card, and once you get Genesis online, you can have a soft lock on combat damage, with you being able to recur the frog. Can be frustrating for combat based decks to deal with!

Eternal Witness is another card that I wish was JUST a bit cheaper, it'd fit into your deck. Pairs really well with Kogla, the Titan Ape (Which you should for sure give a try to!). At a few bucks less expensive, the relatively new Timeless Witness could be a budget option, with it only costing 1 more mana but gaining eternalize. Both would allow you to continue to fetch bombs from the graveyard once the game gets long.

Battle Mammoth helps in dealing with decks that have a lot of targeted removal, and is a decent beater for cheap if foretold. The recently rotating out Thorn Mammoth is another card that I've seen put in work once it resolves! Just a few ideas I had after reading the deck!

(Just checked, Eternal witness also got a reprint, so it'd slide in in just under 3 dollars!)

dannecticut They are a solid finishing combo. You could sub Genesis for Recurring Nightmare. Symbiotic Beast or Mongrel Pack could replace Deranged Hermit

psionictemplar Yes, I have tried Genesis in a couple of versions of this deck, but it's just too slow imo. I guess it's good in a long, grindy match-up, but I tried making this a viable competetive deck, so I'd rather focus on comboing on turn 3, rather than using Genesis on turn 7 or 8. I guess, you could put 1 in a sideaboard vs control match-ups, but otherwise it's just too slow. I mean Caustic Caterpillar seems perfectly fine imo, if you want to replaces forces in the sideboard, I'm sure it'll work just as great. However I prefer Force of Vigor , because it hits muplitple targets (gravehate and one of our main counters, Blood Moon ). So yeah, that's why I chose these cards. Thanks for the suggestions:-)

I am glad you deck cycled this because I had a couple ideas. Had you ever tried Genesis as a way to get lark back? Might be some extra gas for those control matchups. Little bit slow, but powerful. The other thing I was thinking about was if you could make use of Caustic Caterpillar . Its pretty much common in the devoted druid lists and might work well here as well. Maybe try these in place of the force's?

Hi! I would recommend The Binding of the Titans it has great utility, self-mill, exiling cards out of opponents graveyards, and getting a creature/more importantly a land back from the graveyard. I'm not sure what I would take out for the Binding, but I really dislike Genesis because it forces you to spend mana at a specific time, and it is way less flexible than the Binding. Cool deck anyway, keep up the building! :D
