Straight forward Golgari deck, scavenge high powered creatures to power up creatures with death touch or trample. Doubling and moving counters just makes it that much more fun to play.

Scavenge Death's Shadow with Varolz, the Scar-Striped to put 13 +1/+1 counters on Lotleth Troll (trample!) and/or Vampire Nighthawk (lifeline and death touch!). Tormented Soul , a recent addition, has worked out quite well. Sadly it took the place of Scute Mob who I love; and will eventually work into another deck.

Double the +1/+1 counters of each scavenged Death's Shadow to 26 with Corpsejack Menace on the board. Multiple copies in play at once gets even more awesome.

A combat trick your opponent will only fall for once:After scavenging a bunch of +1/+1 counters onto at least one creature, attach with Vampire Nighthawk with no counters. The opponent will probably not block because of death touch. In that case Bioshift the counters onto the unblocked Vampire Nighthawk for at least 15 damage and lifelink, or the kill if the counters were doubled once or more.

Bioshift turns out to be a good way to save counters if your creature is the target of a deadly spell, or just for abusing Corspejack Menace's doubling ability.
