Undying Evil is actually meant to be used more as a combo piece than as one time protection or recursion effect; it essentially functions as a one drop creature with undying since it can make any creature in the deck gain undying. It's especially fun with something like Wurmcoil Engine, though at that point it'd just be overkill lol.

Fleshwrither is a great card to have since it puts creatures directly onto the field. Good for searching out things like Endling , Sengir Autocrat , or Vindictive Vampire for value or to close games out. It actually technically won me a game today by placing Vindictive Vampire on the field, after which I gave it Phyresis and finished an excessively long game out of nowhere.

I think that my cuts will be Deathgreeter and Bontu's Monument . I'm really kind of iffy about cutting them, but I have three other Artist effects that actually ping opponents. The cost reduction from the artifact is nice, but most of my creatures aren't terribly expensive and I haven't really had many issues in having sufficient mana for my turns.

I'd definitely welcome more cut suggestions, though, from you or anyone else who wants to comment. Anyway, thanks for your advice!

Don't add Heartless Summoning ; you're not playing with crazy expensive demons. I approve of Demon of Catastrophes as a secondary way to kill your own Abyssal Persecutor .

I vote Defile instead of Tragic Slip . Fungal Infection might be worth considering, because it can still stop a few critters in modern.

If you go with more sacrificing Sengir Autocrat and Rite of Belzenlok create lots of tokens that can be sacrificed, but are too mana-intensive for their effect. Maybe Doomed Dissenter , Lazotep Reaver or Orzhov Enforcer ? Bitterblossom is too far out of budget range, but for a consistent stream of sacrificable creatures Dreadhorde Invasion but be worth it.

I think it's worth pointing out that you need 2 creatures with undying on the board at the same time with at least 1 of them not having a +1/+1 counter on it for this combo to work (or, as you said, 1 Undying creature with Nest of Scarabs). Just worth explaining the combo somewhere in your primer so people understand how the combo works, imo.

Beyond that, I don't see many definitive wincons once you draw your whole deck. A Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat makes the most sense as you have a sacrifice loop, but it's complicated by the fact you must draw a card with Yawgmoth's ability so you're limited by the size of your library. Some kind of a discard outlet to allow you to keep discarding Kozilek to shuffle the yard into your library would allow this to be a definitive loop. If this was why you included Awaken the Erstwhile , note that this will not work as the trigger to shuffle your graveyard resolves before Awaken the Erstwhile finishes resolving (I would suggest getting rid of this unless there's an interaction I'm missing). Some discard outlets I would recommend:

  • Sadistic Hypnotist - Though limited to sorcery speed and needing a creature to sacrifice, you're bound to have small creatures and tokens to sacrifice and this can be used equally well against opponents while you're grinding out the game.
  • Putrid Imp - One of the cheapest repeatable discard outlets you can find. Probably my top pick.
  • Olivia's Dragoon - More expensive than the Imp, but still repeatable at instant speed.

Though I know you're not including it for budget reasons, Lion's Eye Diamond is quite possibly the best discard outlet you can run as it also allows you to create infinite mana through this loop allowing for a huge Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire (which, by the way, I would also suggest adding somehwere). I'm not expecting you to add LED, just felt I should mention it for others hoping to make a spin on this!

If you want to push this into being more cEDH, I would swap out some of your mediocre cards (e.g. Weaponcraft Enthusiast , Sengir Autocrat , Big Game Hunter , Awaken the Erstwhile ) for some of the following:

I like the idea for this, though, and hope you enjoy the deck!

take out Astral Cornucopia , Butcher Ghoul , Sign in Blood , Sightless Ghoul , Sengir Autocrat , Grim Haruspex , Animate Dead , and Orzhov Enforcer , you have a lot of card drawing already, and more bringing back things from the grave in masses rather than 1 by 1 put in Living Death , Key to the City , Agent of Erebos , Lord of the Void , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Dictate of Erebos , and Carrion Feeder Dictate of Erebos is worth it, it will not only l=allow you to sac creatures and make theirs die but pull out counters, and other things, the real goal is to win, and with more demons on the field and Liliana's Contract you are more likely to get your win con, and if not you have back up options to get other ways to win

VampiricTooter on Golgari Guild Kit Commanders?

Merciless Executioner Plaguecrafter etc. Give you a double trigger and you can sacrifice them to their own ability Or sac a token and save them for blocking. Get a Blasting Station to add extra value damage Ashnod's Altar Phyrexian Altar probably a total of 6 to 8 sac outlets. Pitiless Plunderer for more mana. Green ramp spells, Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat Vindictive Vampire Falkenrath Noble to drain and gain life. Whisper, Blood Liturgist and Hell's Caretaker are great sac/recursion. some creatures that etb and give you creatures tokens, such as Sengir Autocrat . Sanguine Bond if you want to further capitalize on the life gain. Torment of Hailfire to kick em while they are down. Smothering Abomination Sifter of Skulls Razaketh, the Foulblooded and that is mostly just the black part of the deck. The nice thing about Golgari is that there are a great deal of synergies between the legendary and dual coloured creatures to a point where a lot of them are playable in each other’s decks and when you sac a creature of both colours you receive both benefits from savra. A life gain sub theme or mass resurrection are both decent approaches. Buried Alive and Entomb are great! Well I’m sure that you probably were aware of most of these cards but hopefully these are useful to you. I will check back later to see who you chose as a commander. Cheers.

Hi there,

Of course you're correct. You probably know this already, but I think that along with a creature which produces tokens when it enters -- eg, Grave Titan or Sengir Autocrat -- Whisper can produce a combo. The same is true of Hell's Caretaker . One has Whisper out (or the Caretaker), then plays the Titan, which makes two zombies on entry. She sacrifices the Titan and a zombie, and brings back another creature from the grave (which was already there before she entered play; you need to set up a bit). This untaps her as Thornbite Staff triggers on the sacrifice. She then sacrifices the second zombie and the creature she resurrected to bring back Grave Titan , who in turn makes two more zombies. This action causes Thornbite Staff to untap her again. This is repeated ad nauseam. If one has a creature such as Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat on the field, this will kill your opponent gradually with the death triggers. Thanks for the help!
