Dredge cards are amazing with this commander Golgari Grave-Troll is such a beating and fills the bin quickly.

So I think you probably don’t want 36 lands... frankly, I think you want 33 at most. The reason I say this is that, being green, your deck has access to the best ramp in the game. You should strongly consider running any/all of the following: Llanowar Elves , Elves of Deep Shadow , Fyndhorn Elves , Elvish Mystic , Deathrite Shaman , Birds of Paradise , Arbor Elf , Utopia Sprawl and/or Wild Growth .

You want your creatures to be synergistic with your general and be more than midrange value. I think cards like Mindslicer , which effect the board when sacrificed as well as being a body, are likely a lot better than Wall of Blood , Splinterfright , Rhizome Lurcher , etc. Other creatures to consider for these slots: Stinkweed Imp , Golgari Grave-Troll , Eternal Witness , Entomb , Kokusho, the Evening Star ...

This list could also benefit from more card-drawn. Phyrexian Arena is the classical example, but there’re other good options. I like the Shamanic Revelation in your MB; I suggest considering Night's Whisper , Blood Divination , Life's Legacy , Minions' Murmurs , Syphon Mind and Succumb to Temptation .

Also, Diabolic Intent as a more budget Demonic Tutor .

Good luck!

Before I get into detail yes I looked at the rulings of the effect but it didn't answer my question. I have Golgari Grave-Troll and Stinkweed Imp chilling in my graveyard and I'm about to start my turn. Can I get both back at once if I have enough cards in my library or do I have to do things one at a time.

Let’s hope I’m wrong, but they did directly acknowledge in the article the possibility of un-banning Stoneforge Mystic leading to another Golgari Grave-Troll -type scenario..

Variations of Cawblade are now going to be a thing.. Mono-White Death & Taxes now has a fighting chance as well..

However, my money will be on something similar to what I’ve played against in Legacy becoming the dominant competitive variation(s)—Bant/4-color Midrange; Stoneforge Mystic , Tarmogoyf , Force of Negation in place of Force of Will , and Path to Exile in place of Swords to Plowshares ...

Adding gives access to things like Thoughtseize , as well Abrupt Decay & friends...

Adding would likely look more like a Delver of Secrets  Flip-type deck..

Plays exceptionally well with aristocrat and friends. Great tokens for mana sac or skullclamp cards. Draw and creatures and life baked into the command zone. Green gives access to ramp for Hailfire

Many of the cards you will want you will either have or be cheap to acquire. Some ez deck tech Merciless Executioner + friends, Caustic Caterpillar , Golgari Grave-Troll + other dredgers, Llanowar Elves + other cheap dorks, Beastmaster Ascension and other effective token beatdown cards, Viscera Seer + other sac effects. I also highly recommend Cryptolith Rite or Citanul Hierophants . Slot in a handful of the fantastic removal that G/B offers, some tutors, and big beaters for the reanimates, and its a deck

Here is a link to the deck I used to play. It isn't legal in modern or legacy because of Deathrite Shaman and Golgari Grave-Troll .

Cards you could cut: Journey to eternity, kraul stinger, glimpse the unthinkable, vampire of the dire moon, rhizhome lurcher.

Other cards you can play: Lotleth Giant , Dakmor Salvage , Golgari Grave-Troll , Stitcher's Supplier , Boneyard Wurm , Ghoultree .

those cards just aren't great, as they either cost too much mana, aren't a valid wincon, or slow down the deck. I would play Snuff Out , as it's a free removal spell at instant speed, as well as Golgari Grave-Troll , Wild Mongrel , and Oblivion Crown to hasten the set up of the combo.
