I started playing in Odyssey (Apocalypse block, right?) in High School - Roar of the Wurm, Pernicious Deed, Deep Analysis, Wild Mongrel, Spiritmonger - all those cards are forever etched into my mind. I remember when standard was called type 2. I also now remember being distinctly upset that I got a foil Polluted Delta instead of a really sweet creature while cracking packs...and I swiftly traded that bad boy away LOL. Hindsight, am I right? There any trades you deeply regret?

I too enjoy the restricted card pool of pauper.

Wild Mongrel the original madness enabler. Fa'adiyah Seer not as good but still useful.

Scrapwork Rager possible upgrade to that Phyrexian Rager

Yavimaya Elder one of the best cards in the format.

I might run fewer/creatures, since stickfingers will until you reveal x creatures, not just x cards. The fewer you have the higher chance you hit one that destroys the table if you just overload on ramp and reanimates. Rather than these things Crawl from the Cellar,Ghoul's Feast,Gravepurge I'd focus on just reanimating and is easy to get and will probably serve you better. If you really do want it back in your hand Genesis Skullwinder and Eternal Witness do this while attached to a body.

Rather than sending to your hand these will just bring back Diregraf Rebirth, Victimize, Reanimate, Exhume, Unearth, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Stitch Together,Dread Return.Geth, Lord of the Vault is expensive but can fill your yard as well as revive others. Finale of Devastation revives or tutors, and is a finisher.

Blossoming Wreath,Gnaw to the Bone probably heal less than lifelink, and there's a ton of ways to give lifelink.

Rampant Growth is slightly inferior to Three Visits and Nature's Lore as long as your dual lands have both typesOvergrown Tomb, Bayou, Woodland Chasm, although I'd definitely run all three if there's room. Culling Ritual would be an amazing ramp/wipe card you can use to nuke all tokens and then cast stickfingers. Sakura-Tribe Elder is just rampant growth that works as a blocker for one turn, and it is another creature in your graveyard. Lotus Cobra ramps too, particularly with your other ramp options.

And you'll likey have enough mana to use Decree of Pain, if not, other wipe options are Damnation,Pernicious Deed,Death Cloud,Deathbringer Regent,In Garruk's Wake,Killing Wave,Necromantic Selection,Plague Wind,Reiver Demon,Toxic Deluge. Torment of Hailfire works as a finisher too Endurance is basically the only way you can protect your graveyard that I can think of. I'd probably run Veil of Summer too.

Moodmark Painter gives the +x/+x buff and is on a body Garruk Relentless  Flip flips into Garruk, the Veil-Cursed, but its tricky to make this one work

Since you'll have access to really big creatures these can be nice for draw. Greater Good, Momentous Fall, Return of the Wildspeaker, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Morbid Curiosity, Life's Legacy, Disciple of Bolas, Doom Weaver, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.

Mesmeric Orb,Stitcher's Supplier would be an amazing graveyard filler.

Zombie Infestation and Wild Mongrel is usefull for dumping creatures out of your hand

I think every single black deck should run Dauthi Voidwalker, and the more grave hate you have the more you could take advantage of Living End/Living Death if you use these as mass reanimates. they are the cheapest.

Life from the Loam and Bala Ged Recovery  Flip would be good helps for mana and options.

As long as you run Filth run Crop Rotation and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth too since it will make every creature you have unblockable.

Deathrite Shaman would benefit from more fetch lands Marsh Flats,Verdant Catacombs,Misty Rainforest would help mana fix as well as throw more lands into your graveyard.

You have a fairly high number of tutors, and a ton of ramp, so i'd consider Panglacial Wurm. It's a card you dont need to waste a draw to get and can be cast instant speed. And its fun to surprise people with it at least once.

looks like you could use some discard outlets to win with gitrog monster. Wild Mongrel,Oblivion Crown, Noose Constrictor and Putrid Imp are the best ones. Also I recently switched from krosan grip to nature's claim and have seen good results. also the green gifts ungiven seems great in here. Realms Uncharted. also maybe it's time to look to some mana rock acceleration despite the flavor fail. Expedition Map at the very least feels like an auto include.

You can also use the Capenna fetches.

This seems incredibly cool, great design. The Gitrog Monster, Noose Constrictor/Wild Mongrel and Dakmor Salvage seem obvious additions.

jaymc1130 on Need help focusing Sidisi, Mill …

I guess the question is: How many zombies do you want to make milling around with Sidisi?

The classic combo is Bone Miser + Sidisi + discard outlet ( Wild Mongrel / Putrid Imp , etc) + Darkblast / Life from the Loam . With Sidisi, Miser, and the discard outlet in play discard Loam or Darkblast, Miser triggers to draw a card. Replace the draw with dredge and return the discarded Loam or Darkblast. Mill. Repeat the process triggering Sidisi to make zombies for any creatures you mill. Eventually mill Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or another such Eldrazi shuffler. Resuffle the graveyard into the library. Repeat these steps to make an infinite army of zombies. What you choose to do with an infinite zombie token army at that point is up to you.

Great list. It's weird how easily Gitrog decks can become super powerful. Dou should definitely add Dakmor Salvage. It simply goes infinite with Gitrog and Noose Constrictor or Wild Mongrel.
