Deck discussion for Golgari

You don't find this runs a little dry on Mana? I would add in Rot Farm Skeleton and Mulch if you really want to abuse Scavenge and Varolz.

I dont find so, but I find that there shouldn't be self-milling and scavenging in the same deck, especially if you plan on using Jarad, or else he won't get buffed.

But that's the beauty of Jarad. If you self mill he buffs, but if you Scavenge, Jarad can still sac to Burn an opponent. You could potentially have Jarad in play with a CJ Menace and a Dreg Mangler in your Graveyard. Bring out another Mangler and Scavenge your GY for 6 +1/+1 tokens on Dreg Mangler, who is now a 9/9 with haste. Swing away, then in your Main 2 sac Dreg Mangler to deal another 9 to your opponent then you can Scavenge that Mangler on CJ and Sac it next turn for the win. Unless they Exile Jarad you can just dump a Swamp and Forest and their dead meat.

And how much mana do you need to pull that off?
Last time I checked, all you have to do is Syncopate him, and the game's all over.

Touché, but that being said Varolz is pretty much there to make sure you can scavenge anything so by running 2 of him, you are really just wasting space if you choose not to abuse the Scavenge mechanic. Anyway, Elixir of Immortality is cheap and can mitigate the self-milling issue if that becomes a worry.

And my point in running Mulch was to not only fuel your Scavenge Fodder but to also put land on your hand SL you avoid Mana Drought since you run about 4 shy under the standard Land ratio and have 24 creatures with an average CMC of between 3-5.

Yes. Turn this into a "Dredge" deck. Also, use Abrupt Decay.

You could always throw in a few Daggerdrome Imp and scavenge up a Dreg Mangler on it. Suddenly a cheap 1/1 Flier is either a 4/4 or 7/7 depending on if you have a CJM on play, and even a 4/4 Flier with Life link is a scary prospect.

And if you're planning on keeping your Yard full to pump Jarad, then throw in Mortivore and Rancor.

Hey cool deck, have you given any thought to Abrupt Decay in the sideboard (or perhaps main board)?

I have a similar golgari deck, and I'll say, Jarad never worked well for me if things weren't going terrible. I'd recommend: -2 Jarad, - 1 Dreg Mangler, -4 Slitherhead -- + 3 Rakdos Cackler, + 4 Elvish Mystic for cheap changes. And adding ~3 Deathrite shaman, ~ 3 Scav Ooze, ~ 2 Kalonian ~3 Abrupt decay for not so cheap changes.

slitherheads are the best scavenge card in the game. +cjm +2+2 for nothing.
