Savra, Queen of the Golgari Discussion

brainface on Karador isn't going to take it anymore

The goal is usually to play some rebel->get Skyshroud Poacher and then engine online.

main current strategies: Vomit dudes into play and Mirror Entity

Big Game Hunter and Rebel Informer or Reito Lantern

Savra, Queen of the Golgari and a sac outlet for jankiest grave pact lock.

Otherwise try to react to the board state by derping whatever janky elf/rebel counters my opponent into play.

Echoing Decay can remove all of the tokens at once. Dowsing Dagger  Flip would fit the theme and potentially provide good ramp. Grave Pact may be pricy for the build, but would stomp, though I'm not sure if maybe Savra, Queen of the Golgari fits the janky theme better. And finally, I feel like Priest of Forgotten Gods is incredibly underutilized, and absolutely wrecks.

That's all I got.

Based on Savra, Queen of the Golgari...

Savra's Will

Legendary Sorcery

Replicate - Pay 2 life (When you cast this spell, copy it for each time you paid its replicate cost)

Each player sacrifices a creature. For each green creature sacrificed this way, you gain 2 life.

Maybe op, but trying to do the math right now is hurting my brain. Also, yeah, I know that replicate is an Izzet mechanic, and I don't care.

This deck isn't modern legal due to Llanowar Dead and Wellwisher. Also, what is the strategy of the deck? Savra, Queen of the Golgari works in a sacrifice deck, but you only have 2 cards that actually sacrifice creatures.

Savra, Queen of the Golgari and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord are two powerhouse Golgari commanders that can helm a deck like that. Meren's not the only option!

My suggestions using only cards in your maybeboard.

If Ob Nixilis Reignited's only purpose is card draw, out for Guardian Project

That's 1 more out than in so you should be down to 99.

Ugrades using cards not in maybeboard.

Kodama's Reach in for Golgari Signet, Circuitous Route in for Fellwar Stone, Far Wanderings in for Wayfarer's Bauble - net same mana without threshold, but with it a lot better.
Solemn Simulacrum in for Artisan of Kozilek- Artisan is nice but so expensive, while the sad robot is ramp, card draw, and sac fodder.

Death's Presence in for Nyx Weaver - You don't lose any power for sacking your creatures.

Crucible of Worlds in for Whispersilk Cloak

Illusionist's Bracers in for Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, Archfiend of Despair in for Boneyard Wurm- have to cut one of this effect at this point, Wound Reflection in for Liliana, Death's Majesty - could take out the other Lily, but her best case scenario is better.

These three cards together with Jarad allow you to sac a 5 power creature to deal 40 damage. Activate Jarac(sac creature is a cost)+Bracers double = 10 to each opponent. Archfiend and Reflection trigger, first deals 10, second 20 for 40 total damage.

Be careful about putting the Cauldron out too early, since it prevents Death Triggers.

Underrealm Lich + Gitrog = draw almost entire deck, since they trigger off each other.

Underrealm Lich will prevent you from decking as it replaces the card draw.

They may not be everyone's thing, but...

Savra, Queen of the Golgari + Barrin, Master Wizard

They're two of my favorite EDH decks smashed together! Giving Savra a partner sacrifice outlet is great, and Barrin helps against extra pesky targets plus can recur ETB token generation!
