Yeah that's one of the things I love about playing my Zirilan of the Claw deck, for some wierd reason no one is afraid of it till they have a 40/40 dragon with haste and trample in their face, but probably cause that deck appears to do nothing up to turn 4 on a good day, and turn 7 or 8 on a bad one lol

Awsome glad you liked the ideas, I often slot many random cards for fun I always like unusual cards they can mess with people's heads, I run Chaos Moon in my mono red just to distract the other player, by the time they read the text they forgot what was going on lol. But yeah a huge part is meta in any deck so always play to that for sure, and yeah if I had a couple pairs of Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top I would replace two cards in all my decks lol. Good luck!

No you're totally right about morophon he has his give and take so it just comes down to whether you want it for your purpose.

Ya the deck is structured a little wierd right now as I wanted to run cards like Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter, Spawnwrith, some of the other token cards, and yes Wayfaring Temple lol, cause I like them and they weren't seeing play, but yeah even with some of the less competitive ones in there I can ramp so fast with Rhys's ability to make elves while I'm playing elves from my hand as well I can often play cards like giant adephage turn 4 or the brood master, that early in the game either they have a board wipe or you win, cause by that time you'll probly have an untap as well and be able to do many awful things, I cant remember the exact sequence but I've swung for some 200+ dmg turn 6, if unchecked this deck is crazy strong, however all of that is great on paper, when you roll up in real life and drop a turn 1 commander and proceed to ramp out of control, you get hated out of games quickly, I often have players team up to stop this decks strong early game, thank you for all the kind words as well I'd love to get in a match against yur izoni :)

Giant Adephage is one of my favorite 5+ power creatures in these colors as well as several dragons mainly I think something like Balefire Dragon would be fun here, and perhaps a Gratuitous Violence for good measure, I have a Zirilan of the Claw that runs on this same basic principal of tutoring out scary things, one thing that plays well are cards like Price of Glory, Stolen Strategy, and Mana Web putting some hate and control on the board giving me time to get up and going another good one for big creatures is AEther Flash more punishing than you'd assume, have fun +1 from me

A Morophon, the Boundless hydra tribal might go really well with the whole pay x thing there are a ton of great x value hydras as you already know judging by you deck, and Shark Typhoon would be really cool here to since the whatever you pay for x counts toward its effect.

Hey awsome deck I love Meren and +1 from me for be the only other person running Mind Slash, I dont card if it's not Mana Crypt its damn fun lol, anywho I see you have Puppeteer Clique, some fun cards you might like Melira, Sylvok Outcast just hilarious or play this with Woodfall Primus + any free sac outlet as well, it's fun to blow up their lands and pass turn. Then in every black producing deck I always recommend Necropotence and if you want some shenanigans to happen with that already broken card play Reliquary Tower or Venser's Journal it's a good time. Then lastly you cant really feel golgari without a Life from the Loam easily one of the hardest working cards of all time, need grave presence>loam, need land>loam, need to recure artifacts? Add a Buried Ruin and bam>loam, and that's just for starters, good luck and feel free to check out my meren deck maybe you'll see something you like Meren, The Grave Walker, good luck!

Haha ya that deck is a grave/stax combo deck it's for when I'm having a bad day and need an easy win lol, ok so some less Hitlery golgari friendly cards that would be fun here, Deathreap Ritual, easy free extra draw wether your involved in the death or not, Gleancrawler this card is fun if you know you opponent is packing some grave hate you can recurge but keep clear, with my Necropotence I like to run Venser's Journal cause having a 20 card hand is hilarious you can do the evil genius thing and go "pass turn, MUWAHAHAHA!" Then do nothing just to freak them out cause you have the life, and Doomgape used to be one of my golgari standbys 3 golgari mana and 4 colorless for a 10/10 with trample is good enough for a slot but then it's a free sac outlet with life gain I've always felt this card was underrated. Hope that's a little more casual fun, I've been brewing a cedh stax deck recently, I need reminding of casual play sometimes lol.

Cool deck, have you tried Morophon, the Boundless one of the best new tribal cards for five color, it can run as an alternative commander or just be killer when it drops alowing you to cast many cards in you deck for 1-2 colorless, also like Harsh Mercy, Descendants' Path, and Patriarch's Bidding would all be fun here, good luck +1 from me

Haha I showed your deck to my friends years ago, they said 'we should make $10 budget decks' I said 'I'll make a $1 deck that wins t4' and proceeded to whip this out lol, it's the best gag deck ever haha

Ya with Greater Good your opponents have the same thought you did, that you just played a mediocre draw engine, while you sit there and stack your graveyard, I've seen it many times even against good players that know my decks, they always end up saying 'why didn't I get rid of that sooner!?!' Lol.
May 18, 2020 8:34 p.m.
Hey cool deck, Meren of Clan Nel Toth would be a good card in here as well as an alternative commander, a card you might enjoy as well in here is Greater Good very unassuming draw engine that let's you manipulate your grave, for straight grave and hand manipulation Tortured Existence is great to get key pieces where you want them. Of course Necropotence is always an amazing card for obvious reasons. And lastly the newest fun looking card in golgari I havnt got my hands on yet Fiend Artisan, looks very cool kind of a Fauna Shaman meets Golgari Grave-Troll for two golgari mana I'll take it, it looks like solid fun, well good luck, and a +1 from me for sure.

Power Sink, Spell Blast, Dovin's Veto, and if were throwing creatures in there Brine Seer, Diplomatic Escort, Disciple of the Ring, Disruptive Pitmage, Ertai, Wizard Adept, and Mundungu are just a couple not to mention the plethora of sac to counter creatures, this list is a good start but maybe 100 or so cards short, thank you for starting this list tho +1 from me
May 16, 2020 4:40 p.m.
Haha no problem, thank you for the attempted double upvote!, and thank you for the kind words, ya I tried to turn the 'spell book' into a 'utility belt' glad you like it

Gattison hey bro I set this idea down for a while but recently went all in on crafting a flavorful fun deck, thought you should be the fist person to see it since I made it public again, let me know what you think, I'm thinking sadukar jetpack troops for Luminarch Ascension haha lol.
May 15, 2020 2:54 a.m.
Deck completely revised and thought out for flavor and functionality, enjoy.

With all this lockdown some extra alternate win cons would be nice maybe consider Approach of the Second Sun with enough hate on the board it reads "I win in 7 turns" I run a lot of these cards and your commander in a Grand Arbiter Augustin IV deck so that I have access to blue as well for added controll and additional win cons, but I really think hokori is an under valued card so I'm glad to see someone piloting him.
