Version 3! After two different and unsuccessful attempts at a tribal sub theme I settled on a more controlling style for Gitrog, with lots of Edict-style effects. It’s been a much smoother ride. Demons make up the bulk of my heavy hitters, because they tend to have the punisher mechanics I was looking for. Originally I had only edict effects for removal, but my experience is that I really do need some targeted stuff too, so I’ve included a few. A few other notable insertions – Glacial Chasm, which, with Crucible of Worlds, you don’t even need to pay the upkeep for; Westvale Abbey for a big not-quite-land beater, and Pernicious Deed, which has been an all star so far.

and/or might be reasonable stall tactics until your beasts get online, and Worm Harvest would certainly give you tons of tokens later on in the game. If you aren't looking for it to be too competitive, any of the Retrace cards would be fun.

I couldn't help noting how particularly vile one of these decks would be with multiple dedicated land-sac outlets and would be.

I agree on Worm Harvest, it's good enough to include in any Golgari deck and it'll be stellar here. Also, any excuse to run Mazirek is good.

You're both right.

- (gimmicky and unnessecary)
- (upon rereading, it's only one draw per effect, not one per land - I'd figured this out by the time I posted, but hadn't made the connection to this card)
- (unnessecary/overkill)

when you just want to draw a lot of cards, while fixing your mana while he's at it.

seems good here. Early ramp or draw 2 with Senōr Frog on the battlefield.

That was disappointing.

The Git has plenty of Velocity, verging on excessive while is in play. Despite having a whole suite of beasts to back him up, he struggles to play threats effectively. This is mostly because he can't count on having more than 5 lands, since he keeps eating them. With an average CMC 0f 3.6, and an average CMC of the included beast and beast related creatures of 5.16, he just never builds steam.

Solutions:

1) Land Ramp. I thought I'd be able to keep the lands flowing without spell-based ramp, but it seems this is not the case. I need to add some.

2) Zombies. I think I need to refocus the threats on a less expensive tribe. Zombies also have the advantage of built in recursion in many cases, allowing them to more effectively weather some of the selection spells I've included that effectively self mill.

3) Answers. They just never quite made it into the original list (a relatively common occurrance for me while I evaluate a decks mechanical potential). I need to include a few bits of spot removal. Fortunately I'm in reasonable colors for everything but Enchantmemnts.

I was playing around with a Gitrog deck. One card that I found good is Drownyard Temple. Being able to get it back after saving it to the toad is nice and it combos well with dustbowl. Also since you can drop so many extra lands cards that get lands into your hand go up in value. Nissa's Pilgrimage has been good. Also fun are cartographer effects, especially Tilling Treefolk.
