Kinkyramirez - This is a "pauper" edh deck. Harmonize and Hot Soup have not been printed as an uncommons yet. Also, Whispersilk Cloak is already in the deck.

So, I've actually included the majority of the deathtouch creatures that are available to me. Again, this is a pauper deck. The infect creatures still add to the same clock even if they have no synergy with my commander.

While I'd like more card draw my card Pool is extremely limited. Currently, Lead the Stampede and Winding Way are the best green has to offer.

Also, Ancient Animus provides the additional benefit of a counter to Fynn which makes him pass the bolt test - it's very important that he sticks around. Savage Swipe - is just amazingly mana efficient. The focus of the removal suite was more so tempo and protection. In the late game assuming we draw it Viridian Longbow solves most of our creature problems.

Lastly, while thinning is great and all but cards like Rampant Growth and Cultivate don't fit into my curve very well. The majority of the deck is 1-2 drops and there's a very small window of opportunity for a deck like this to shine. Basically, I want to be dropping a creatures not ramping/thinning.

I would probably cut one of your rocks for Winding Way.

Nice build!

Firstly, I apologize for the late response. I got caught up a bit with schoolwork at the end of last week. I typed out my response a couple of days ago, but I must've managed to only click Preview and not Post. That makes me feel a little silly, hahaha.

I love Geier Reach Sanitarium as a way to discard impactful creatures that have ended up in your hand. On the topic of cards like Library and Arena, there's also other persistent sources of card draw, like Erebos, God of the Dead, Greed and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip.

Doom Whisperer is really great in this deck. Dumping cards in the yard as you please and its control over those cards really greases the gears of our machine. Regarding Elder Gargaroth, I must admit that I'm primarily running it for the keywords, so I'd definitely recommend getting a Doom Whisperer before the Gargaroth.

I find Acidic Slime to be an all star in my grindy midrange decks running green. There's always a problematic permanent it can get rid of, and in this deck in particular, the Deathtouch is also pretty nice. Angel of Finality is a card I am a little iffy on, to be honest. That being said, I like that it provides some graveyard hate outside of the common Bojuka Bog.

It is true that this deck is lacking in board wipes. The only card that comes close to that is Living Death, which can be unreliable. So far, this hasn't posed too big of a problem. I can usually get some of the most important cards in my graveyard by turn 4-5 and from there threaten with a big lifelink swing. That being said, I should probably try to fit in at least a Toxic Deluge or something.

Regarding utility spells that incidentally get things in your yard, I'll list the first cards that come to mind from the top of my head.

One of the cards that I've wanted to try but haven't found room for is Death's Oasis. The thing keeping it from being super good imo is that you're forced to return a creature to your hand, which can screw you up if you're stacking your graveyard for Kathril. Other cards that are close to being run is Splinterfright and Stitcher's Supplier

Removal: Price of Fame, Mephitic Vapors, Drown in Filth.

Card draw and filtering: Theres a bunch of these, but among my favourites are Gather the Pack, Ransack the Lab and Winding Way.

There's also quite a few Dredge cards that get good mileage in our deck archetype. The heavy hitters imo being Golgari Grave-Troll, Life from the Loam and Golgari Thug.

I too think that 8 drain dudes are too much: in my opinion you'll be good with just the 4 of Marauding Blight-Priest. You could add green to take advantage of Essence Warden and the mana dorks like Avacyn's Pilgrim, Loam Dryad and Saruli Caretaker: they could help swarm the board and ping the opponent faster (or just attack with a huge army of 1/1s lol). Green also gives you acces to card draw like Winding Way and Lead the Stampede. Some time ago youtuber CalebGannon made an Abzan Soul Sister list with this strategy: you could check his video to take some inspiration. Happy brewing! :)

Winding Way is a strictly better upgrade for Mulch, as it can also look for creatures, if needed.

This is gorgeous.

Having played decks like this before I'd like to suggest:

Also maybe cut back on some of the fogs, I can't imagine folks profitably attacking into this. XD

Hi jdc ,

I'm very happy you took a look at the deck and the videos. There are a lot more games that really show what the deck can do. The deck can be very aggressive and still be able to grind against control decks.

I am a fan of Fume Spitter, but I am considering going to 3 copies and putting the 4th copy of Golgari Brownscale in the maindeck. Spitter is good but not in every matchup. Very good against Delver and Faeries, which is a deck I aim to beat, usually.

These videos were made before Winding Way was printed. Switching out from Lead the Stampede improves the deck's curve and also makes me feel comfortable going down to 21 lands, since the card is cheaper to cast and can also get lands.
