Golgari Grave-Troll Discussion

Dredge 6 is one action of cards going into the graveyard. Since one or more lands entered the graveyard during this action, you draw one card.

Into the hypotheticals of the second question: If Golgari Grave-Troll was something like Dredge 1+1+1+1+1+1, or Dredge 1 then repeat this five more times (there's no good way to template it as multiple abilities), so that each card milled was a separate action on the stack, I believe you would draw each card after that land hit the graveyard individually and triggered The Gitrog Monster .

Lets say there is a Golgari Grave-Troll in your graveyard and The Gitrog Monster on your field. You use the dredge ability to mill 6 cards and 3 of them are land cards. Would The Gitrog Monster trigger 3 times or just once? And if it does trigger multiple times do you draw after each land card hits the graveyard or after all of the cards are milled?

I think the best partner for this really depends on when your gameplan ends up being.

I can see green as a good option for a 3rd color, for traditional enchantress reasons, and because green has a some decent options for filling the graveyard ( Satyr Wayfinder or Golgari Grave-Troll to name a couple), as well as a few options for tucking cards from your graveyard back into your library.

Blue is also a good option for a 3rd color and can also do everything you need to make your core gameplan work.

Of course, Thrasios, Triton Hero covers both of these colors.

Adding black opens up some good options, but, with the stated plan being mass enchantment recursion, I think I'd rather just run Ghen, Arcanum Weaver unless you wanted to use Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper .

Anyways, I'd pick your wincon first, then pick the partners that work best for it.

I'm surprised artifact lands got printed, and I'm waiting for the MH2 lands to break, even with entering tapped.

Dredge is only a significant problem with a bug number; Shenanigans is basically a repeatable Shatter , since Dredge 1 isn't that threatening. The most used Dredge cards are Golgari Thug and Stinkweed Imp , which dredge 4 and 5, and Golgari Grave-Troll is banned in Modern. So this is a case of overbalancing.

There's a similar story with Storm: it's only a problem if it represents a win condition, like Brain Freeze , Tendrils of Agony , Grapeshot , or Empty the Warrens . I don't think too many games have been won or lost on Astral Steel or Reaping the Graves . It depends on the effect it goes with.

Hey, thanks for the speedy reply!

I played a The Gitrog Monster land dredge-type deck and "the big 3" dredge creatures Golgari Grave-Troll , Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug had put in amazing work in the deck. Usually we only ever dredged with them. I figured i'd ask as we have many draw effects here within the hogaak list and figured it would put in some good work! I am building this and making some slight modifications, notably I feel like Worm Harvest would put in MASSIVE work in the list. For recursion sake and synergy I feel like Desecrated Tomb is worthy of a main deck slot.

I digress, Thank you for sharing your thoughts and list! Much appreciated! I look forward to terrorizing the playgroup with this list ;)

Hi 3n3rgy2, thanks for the suggestions!

There's no particular reason for why these dredgers aren't in the list. In fact, after thinking on it, I've decided to include Golgari Grave-Troll , as it pairs nicely with our discard package, and helps Hogaak's delve in the early-game. What I also like about it, is it can serve as a proxy for our Big Fella , and be that juicy Disciple of Bolas target when we have no other option.

Stinkweed Imp isn't so bad, but as of now, I'm unconvinced that it's utility is worth its slowness. Maybe you can convince me otherwise...?

Thanks again for taking a look at my list, and for your contribution!

Hello! Fantastic deck list, first off! I'm wondering why there is no Golgari Grave-Troll or Stinkweed Imp in this list. I feel like they'd probably be a good inclusion. Just curious to hear your thoughts! Thanks :)
