Izoni, Thousand-Eyed Discussion
3 weeks ago
Dude! I think you're selling yourself short with this one! You could put wayyy more tokens into this and break it... get those Blood Artist triggers.
Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Infernal Genesis , Awaken the Erstwhile , Plague of Vermin , Worm Harvest , Izoni, Thousand-Eyed , Spider Spawning , Tombstone Stairwell ... Tendershoot Dryad ... I can go on :)
Stinkweed Imp ... more dredge!
Hogaak was so good they had to ban him in Modern lol.

Golgari sure know how to party ... to death !
There are many builds around this guild but putting Storrev in the Commander seat makes me think you want to go midrange/value without much graveyard strategy (so maybe a little bit of food but mostly good threats and removal).
I would get Eye Collector and Blood for Bones out because they would fit a longer gameplan best suited to Vraska, Golgari Queen and would replace them with Thorn Mammoth and Doom Whisperer . Also Arcane Signet is most of the time a better Chromatic Lantern .
Izoni, Thousand-Eyed Liliana, Dreadhorde General and Cavalier of Thorns are better if you play multiplayer than you aggressive 2-3 drops so keep that in mind ... the slower builds are going to be better in 4-player.

Akroan Horse seems...like it could be something better. Cards like Verdant Force and Tendershoot Dryad would do better, and Verdant Embrace enchants another creature to do the same. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder is another one that could probably benefit from your current build, since you're running a lot of creatures. Kher Keep could be a fun land for you to run.
Evolutionary Leap would be a good sac outlet for you to run, and you could probably use a few more. Viscera Seer should be in the main deck. Izoni, Thousand-Eyed could produce you tokens under the right circumstance, and also provides sac and card draw. Krav, the Unredeemed works similarly to your other devour creatures, and will draw you double cards with Korvold on the battlefield. Vampiric Rites is another sac and draw outlet.
Other cuts I'd recommend: Ramunap Excavator and Crucible of Worlds (better for lands-matters themes), Chancellor of the Forge (high CMC, and to boot is tough to cast), and possibly Breeding Pit (tying up each turn might prove to be a pain in the ass).
Hope that helps!

I would think that Vampire of the Dire Moon should be standard in a deck like this. I like the inclusion of Evolution Sage and Vraska, Swarm's Eminence backed up by Stony Strength , Courage in Crisis and New Horizons (at 3 copies of each) allowing your death-touch creatures to feed off Evolution Sage and grow in power. 2 each of Murder and Assassin's Trophy provides back-up creature removal. Everything else should be lands or death-touch creatures, but I would look to focus more on 1- and 2-drop creatures (maybe including Sedge Scorpion ). Among all your 3-drop creatures, only Leyline Prowler and maybe Ochran Assassin offer value for mana. Izoni, Thousand-Eyed is just so expensive to cast that it will seldom work in this deck.

First off add Fetch lands like Arid Mesa , the shock lands like Blood Crypt , and the check lands like Clifftop Retreat . Second add cards like Sidisi, Brood Tyrant , Izoni, Thousand-Eyed and especially Meren of Clan Nel Toth . Karador, Ghost Chieftain would be nice too. There are a lot more like that you should add, most of which are on EDHREC, the graveyard theme. (https://edhrec.com/themes/graveyard) The best place on this site for great cards would be in high synergy cards, located if you scroll down on the link above. Third, add some more ramp, like Kodama's Reach , Cultivate , or even Explore . But most of all ADD Sol Ring . ITS THE BEST CARD IN COMMANDER. LITERALLY. You can also find these in the EDHREC ramp theme. (https://edhrec.com/themes/ramp) Fourth and Last, add some synergies. Ramunap Excavator would be amazing, or any card with the "Dredge" ability. Sorry, I don't have time to show you any more individual cards but I recommend you check EDHREc. Its where I built most of my 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

Okay I hate to be that guy, but Meren should definitely not be the commander for a golgari commander deck. Massive flavor fail. You have every single Golgari guildmaster in recent memory to choose from- in order: Sisters of Stone Death , Savra, Queen of the Golgari , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , and even Vraska, Golgari Queen (it’d have to be Oathbreaker but whatevs).
You also have several prominent members of the Swarm to choose from; Varolz, the Scar-Striped (the Swarm’s chosen Maze Runner), Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest (a significant mover and shaker among the Swarm’s Kraul population), Izoni, Thousand-Eyed (Matka of the Devkarin), Storrev, Devkarin Lich (also a prevalent Devkarin, and a stronger and more interesting commander than Izoni, in my humble opinion).
Meren, by contrast, is from Jund. While she feels like she could be a member of the swarm, she is not- as she is busy not being on the same plane. This means you have seven commanders and an oathbreaker general (choose any one of her FIVE golgari-aligned printings) to choose from for a mote flavorfully appropriate pick.
In the end, though, it’s your choice. And I wouldn’t honestly blame you if you dropped some flavor for power here. In fact, I’m not sure what’s so “Golgari” about this particular brew. Normally the Swarm opts for an Aristocrat strategy... this just seems like two-color goodstuff (though some of the stuff may not be all that good?).

Hey enpc, thank you for your advice! The Yavimaya Elder is a card that I really do enjoy, since I'm a sucker for value :D I have also thrpought about cutting either Izoni, Thousand-Eyed or Moldervine Reclamation since those are quite expensive and often don't seem to do enough. Maybe even cut both for Carpet and a Deathrite Shaman . If you look at it I got about 18 Cards of tutors and draw and a lower curve could benefit my early game. I am just always scared about running out of gas due to lacking draw :/
