Varolz, the Scar-Striped

Varolz, the Scar-Striped

Each creature card in your graveyard has scavenge. The scavenge cost is equal to its mana cost. (Exile a creature card from your graveyard and pay its mana cost: Put a number of +1/+1 counters equal to that card's power on target creature. Scavenge only as a sorcery.)

Sacrifice another creature: Regenerate Varolz, the Scar-Striped.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped Discussion

Can you infintely cast the newly spoiled Skyclave Shade with Aluren from your graveyard? If so, I would put this in my Varolz, the Scar-Striped deck as a backup for if I were to lose my Endless Cockroaches. Pretty much infinitely sac the cockroaches to varolz and play them with aluren with a Blood Artist, Grave Pact, Forgotten Ancient, or any other thing that cares abt things being cast or dying. So would substituting the shade for the cockroaches still allow this combo to go infinite?

Hi Shayda!!!

Dude those dragons are doing so well (when no one wipes them)!

Did you want a similar deck? 'Cuz that's what you've got here... but I think you should lean into go-wide-aggro > midrange and play more 1-2 cmc creatures and move all your ramp to 2 (Rampant Growth, signets, etc).

I'd also recommend Golgari Charm, Boros Charm, and Heroic Intervention.

Tribal decks have so much flavor! Hope this helps, maybe we'll see it next weekend? :o

Cool deck! You might like these: Chakram Retriever, Intruder Alarm, Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, Horde of Notions, Omnath, Locus of the Roil, Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Illusionist's Bracers, Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, Cerulean Wisps, Instill Energy, Nature's Chosen, Generator Servant, Fist of Suns, Jodah, Archmage Eternal, Jeskai Ascendancy.

Sisay finds Momir Vig, Vig finds Chakram Retriever (assuming you have a green card in hand to trigger Momir. 1/4 of your list is green so this should be no problem). You can then use Sisay to find Horde of Notions, Omnath LOTR, and Varolz. Sack Omnath to Varolz, use Jegantha to pay for Horde's ability to recast Omnath from grave, triggering Retriever to untap Jegantha. Repeat for infinite damage via Omnath's entry trigger. The other cards mentioned are just speed boosters

This is a great deck! You beat all the companions that came your way.

To balance out the mana-base, I would swap a Swamp for a Plains. I also, for extra companion hate, would put three Drannith Magistrates into the sideboard and take out a Gaddock Teeg, a Collector Ouphe and a Gemrazer.

You are a great deckbuilder, and I would love to see you make a deck around Force of Savagery without Varolz, the Scar-Striped.

This looks very fun to play! I would swap out 2 Fauna Shamans for 2 more Grim Flayers, since he not only puts the creatures you want into your graveyard, you can pitch extra lands you don't want, and manipulate your top deck, all while also being a threat on the board. Same CMC, but doesn't need additional mana to be useful, which can be useful in a low-curve decklist like this.

I was going to suggest Dark Confidant, but that is very much not budget haha.

How well has Mausoleum Secrets worked? I imagine it's essentially an instant-speed Demonic Tutor at a certain point, which is pretty awesome. However, without the creatures in the graveyard, it is a dead card. Grisly Salvage seems to do the job by digging through the deck, with the added benefit of being able to get you a land to ensure you can cast Varolz, the Scar-Striped the next turn. Anyway, cool deck, I'd like to see the non-budget version in play soon!

shadow63: That's basically what Varolz, the Scar-Striped does. Doesn't vibe well with flavour of the card. Guess she'll have to go with some Lightning Greaves.

If you wanted more direct counters your could add Retreat to Kazandu and maybe Oran-Rief, the Vastwood

Or even Varolz, the Scar-Striped
