Not bad, I see how you plan to use Filth + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in order to ensure the creatures go thru opponent's defenses... I may try that route if my version does not work.

You are right when you mentioned that poison counters are funny... especially against those pesky Wellwisher decks!

Good luck with your deck!

I'd be careful about using Filth Buy as a means of getting through your opponent's defenses - all it takes is one graveyard removal to ruin your day. Why not sprinkle in some of the fear mechanic? Intimidation Buy is pretty expensive but effective. You could also do the enchant creature cards that give fear and keep a sideboard of creature removals to take out black/artifact creatures.

I thought of a few more cards that would make this deck ridiculous. Equipment cards like Viridian Longbow Buy, Thornbite Staff Buy, Kusari-Gama Buy, Sword of Fire and Ice Buy and Hankyu Buy attached to a card like Marsh Viper Buy which doesn't require the creature to be unblocked for the poison to go through would be truly evil. You could tim them once or twice a round and make them take 4 poison counters.

i was going to recommend artifact equipments for T: 1 damage but i see it was already mentioned above but it'll only work on half of the creatures.

how about Overrun Buy as somewhat of a finisher.
Unmake Buy instead of smother.

looks pretty solid, gl on your build.

appreciated if you can rate my wurm reanimation deck :D

if you're gonna run filth, put in more filth and more tombs to make sure its worth it because drawing one without the other is pretty wasteful. otherwise, i like the deck synergy and poison as a general strategy
please rate my naya deck

Maybe try throwing in some Snake Cult Initiations to maximize the number of poison counters and speed up your game.

Thanks for the rate Ralph. The Snake Cult Initiation Buy is a good card, but it dies with the creature it enchants. Now Fireshrieker Buy, on the other hand, will stay and speed up the counters. It deals damage twice.

I like that your deck accelerates and gets what is needs by means of the gravyard. My only complaint is that you don't have nearly enough recursion to get those cards back. Eternal Witness Buy and Recover Buy would be great additions to the deck. Please rate my Cascade Aggro deck.

tubanazi93, thank you for the rating. I think you may have misunderstood the reasons for Buried Alive Buy and Entomb Buy. They are only to get filth into the graveyard, so my creatures gain swampwalk. Oversold Cemetery Buy and Volrath's Stronghold Buy are there to get my poisionous creatures back.

Hey thanks for rating my deck. I didn't even realize that there were so many other creatures that also had poison-- I wonder how they fell through my filter. I really like the Broken Fall Buy as a cheap and recurring way to regenerate creatures under assault. I also like how Paralyze Buy gets your creatures through. Perhaps you could consider some removal like Maelstrom Pulse Buy to deal with anything else that gets in your way. Since getting Urborg out is so important to the deck, I would assume that the tutors would mostly be searching for it. In that case, I might suggest cards like Crop Rotation Buy or Sylvan Scrying Buy that would do the same job for less. I am a fan of the tainted cycle of lands, so I'm glad to see that you've included Tainted Wood Buy. Perhaps you could also include some Verdant Catacombs Buy to help make the manabase more efficient.

great deck,you might want to get rid of the nekretals to cut it down to 60 cards, also you might want to SB a few rend flesh for when you are going against black decks.

the graveyard path to get them all unblocked takes too long, too many steps involved. Or at least you could run some land fetch for the yawgmoth tomb (or more tutors)
I love oversold cemetary

poison ftw
