Rhizome Lurcher Discussion

SideBae on Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord

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!

I really like your list. I've been casting around for a good abzan tortured existence list and this is the best I've seen. I also admire your attention to unknown cards - both Rhizome Lurcher and Moodmark Painter are diamonds in the rough.

The aim is to put as many creatures into the graveyard so that Rhizome Lurcher and Izoni, Thousand-Eyed can finish the job.

Hi, somewhat of a interesting deck, My primary suggestion is to considerably lower or take out a bunch of the 1x's. The ones in which you need most should always be put at a 4x or at least a 3x.

I'd start off with something like this in a way to revolve around Undergrowth and Vraska. Someone else can help out and build upon this idea for later if they like or improve upon it for I don't often play Golgari. Hopefully it helps out a bit.

Creatures

4x Glowspore Shaman 4x Attendant of Vraska 4x Rhizome Lurcher 2x Lotleth Giant 4x Swarm Guildmage 4x Beast Whisperer 3x Ironshell Beetle

Sorceries

2x Vraska's Stoneglare 2x-4x Find / Finality

Instants

2x-4x Necrotic Wound 2x-4x Status / Statue

Artifact

1x-2x Golgari Locket

Planeswalker

1x-2x Vraska, Regal Gorgon

Lands

4x Overgrown Tomb 4x Woodland Cemetery 7x Swamp 7x Forest

Hopefully some of this helps out :). Good luck with the deck building

You should add in Rhizome Lurcher

Rhizome Lurcher - I would compare this guy with Molderhulk and the Hulk can come at least one turn earlier and he gives you land from the graveyard. My experience with Hulk: Early threat but without any evasion or trample which the Lurcher haven't as well, it will die horribly or gets blocked. So I would prefer Hulk over Lurcher even it will get bigger.

Necrotic Wound - At the beginning where I start to build the deck, I got a playset Assassin's Trophy, three Necrotic Wound and three Ravenous Chupacabra as the removal pack. While the meta, lgs-wise, switches to a drake-heavy gameday, I change the package to Kraul Harpooner and Cast Down. Cast Down don't require a full graveyard and while there aren't many copies of Niv Mizzet around it wasn't a bad addition, Kraul Harpooner needs one creature in the yard to kill the drakes while Trophy has the drawback "ramping the opponent". Maybe since the added Seekers' Squire which gives more tools to fill the graveyard, I could change the Removal pack back to Necrotic Wound.

My last thought is that I could change a little bit more to add another Journey to Eternity  Flip as well as a one-off Lotleth Giant as a payoff to the filled grave. I guess that I have to cut the Creeping Chill and the Maindeck Ritual of Soot to be more resilient.

Or should I add Blue (Chemister's Insight, Sinister Sabotage, Mission Briefing) or Red (Fight with Fire, Experimental Frenzy, Risk Factor)... Thoughts?

How about Rhizome Lurcher? Seems like it would have tons of value here. Also the card you have for your main pic. Necrotic Wound slides in like butter.

I'd say play the cards you love. Pauper is a format where you can do much about anything, new decks come and go constantly (unlike formats like modern where there are certain decks that don't really change tier or competitive consistency). There's lots of ways to go with a GY deck in pauper, and GRN brings tons of possibilities with Rhizome Lurcher or possibly Hired Poisoner. Screw most of the suggestions on here, follow your heart.
