Deck Description

Ravnica Trolls -

Lotleth Troll is everything you could possibly ask for in a creature, Trample, Regenerate, Self Pump, Cheap to summon, Coupled with Wreath of Geists from discarding creatures , I had him swinging for 10 on turn 3 a few games on pre release night (without Wreath obviously), that makes games end real quick. Throw in Slitherhead and Corpsejack and he becomes a Monster real fast, Detain/Bounce is his only true weakness, Gravecrawlers with Rancor help even out the field for a pretty rediculously speedy RTR Aggro setup.

Lotleth Troll + Gravecrawler is a godlike combo btw ;)

Veilborn Ghoul is an insanely great combo with Lotleth as well.

Turn 1, Swamp/Tomb/Cemetery - Hold (do not play *Slitherhead* EVER!)

Turn 2, Forest/Tomb/Cemetery, Play Lotleth Troll - Discard All other Creatures, Slitherheads, Gravecrawlers, Veilborn Ghouls, Jarad etc. (except Ghoultree if you can play him on turn 3 depending on how many creatures you started with)

Turn 3, Swamp/Tomb if Veilborn Ghouls were Discarded, return them to hand and discard them again, Play Wreath of Ghouls on Lotleth Troll, Play Ghoulcaller's Chant, discard returned creatures again. Troll should be around 10-12+ Power with Wreath on, SWING and trample on thru lol.

Deck discussion for RTR Zombie Trolls

Hey man, nice job. I thought about doing something like this for RTR, but decided not to, as it is quite weak to detain, which has become popular in my area already :/ But good for you, see how it turns out!

Take out Trestle Troll. Sorry, this is just a waste of space :/

When i though about this though, I made sure to include x4 Disentomb, because you get to pull stuff back for Lol Troll to pump again!

You may also like abrupt decay, if you can get your hands on any, and if you like Wreath of Geists, you may like Splinterfright.

Also, I like vile rebirth, just to give yourself option as towards what you can do to the graveyard :)

Hope this helps :D Return the favor? http://www.mtgvault.com/ViewDeck.aspx?DeckID=390504

I was thinking about Splinterfright, but his milling ways, could be counter productive to the troll lol, was considering disentomb but figured the only things id be bringing back would be , corpsejack and ghoultree really, since most everything else has its uses in the graveyard. I threw in trestle troll just to handle pesky fliers, but you're right he is a waste of space in an aggro setup lol may exchange him for another useful graveyard creature, possibly butcher ghouls or something.

Ok cool. But I think you're missing the point of Disentomb. The whole idea with using it, is that, you DISCARD they creature AGAIN, effectively making it B = +1/+1 to troll, so all the grave based stuff, can still be in the graveyard, and then of course the other part when your troll dies, (or anything else you want for that matter) can be played back.

Your deck is looking pretty bad-ass. The mana curve looks great! Not much i can critique. Could you critique my deck please? http://www.mtgvault.com/ViewDeck.aspx?DeckID=390629 Just made it & i'd like the most advice i can get!

Boneyard Wurm because it has great synergy with the others. Vraska and Liliana of the Veil work for it because Vraska kills anything she wants to on drop and Liliana gets more creatures in your graveyard and bypasses hexproofed things.

Check out my Rakdos Guild!

Vraska would be nice to add, but shes a little too slow for this setup, I may throw in the disentombs, I'm also going to definately add a few Veilborn ghouls because they will work retardedly good with Lotleth troll , Discard ghoul, Play a swamp return ghoul to hand, Discard ghoul again lol.

Ghoulcallers chant is a little better than Disentomb for this deck i noticed too, as it returns 2 creatures to my hand instead of 1 with almost all of them being zombies.

Posted 04 October 2012 at 04:09


I second that, disentomb is good, but Ghoulcallers chant is better!

totally ninja'd that for my deck, what ya think?

Instead of Altar's Reap and Jarad's Orders use Grisly Salvage imo.

hate to state this... but gravecrawler is only kind of pimp with lotleth, you only get to discard him once, yes you get to play him from the graveyard right after, butwhat you would really want would be any number of top of library creatures... unfortunately most of those are out of standard
