Quote from Topper »Value is good. But Dredgavine isn't supposed to be about value. It's supposed to be about V-8; 2000 pounds of nitro boosted war vegetables. The more velocity, the better.

Quote from EpiCycle1 »Porting over some Pauper madness tech, would gravescrabbler make the cut as a 2-of? A relevant ability and type attached to a serviceable body. I would use it if I had the lightning axe in my deck as well.
Quote from Killer_Manfred »Looks great, thanks a lot, Creamy!
Here are a few things I noticed might need an edit:
- Section 1, line 2: just missing a ´ in "decks namesake"
- Section 2: something seemed to have messed up the font. It says "BBLACKB" and "GGREENG"
- Gurmag Angler and Tasigur both still mention Hooting Mandrills, while those are not found anywhere in the Primer. It also says under Tasigur that 2-3 is the correct number of delve creatures to run.
- the text for Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug still imply Golgari Grave-Troll is banned.
- Darkblast: I think it might be a good idea to mention the dredge-trick that allows you to kill 2-toughness creatures
- Watery Grave: I'd add that this is a viable addition as a 1-of in Jund builds when running Spellskite. I think I actually got that idea from you, Creamy. Might be worth to add
All in all, this is a great primer and I'm super glad you took the time to put it together. Thanks!
Quote from JetPoweredFenixx »Hello! I'm starting take interest and always wanted to play a Dredge deck since I always have a love for playing goofy graveyard decks. I have been playing some of the BW Pox decks and really enjoy Smallpox and was wondering if there was any way to fit it into this style of deck? I saw the Loam Pox deck thread but I think I'd rather play with a bit more Dredge than just Life from the Loam. Any suggestions/thoughts?
Quote from JetPoweredFenixx »Gotcha. I was thinking of adding more Dredge to LoamPox since I don't see a ton of graveyard based decks at my LGS. Though I might give this a try if this is considered the better of the two. It just feels strange not to see some of the cards from LoamPox like Raven's Crime or Flamejab, or more land destruction like Ghost Quarter or Tectonic Edge. And I just enjoy Smallpox with Bloodghast and probably more so with Gravecrawler.
Also, I was looking on Youtube for more Dredge Modern playing and saw one that was more of a reanimator style with Unburial Rites and fatties like Iona and Elesh Norn.
Quote from JetPoweredFenixx »Oh, no worries on the pitch. Dredge is one of the mechanics I've been wanting to play for a long time in Legacy. I'm probably gonna give your list a shot with all the zombies. Darkblast is super good in my local meta cause it mows down Snapcasters and Infect creatures. I might fiddle around with the flex slots and some of the creatures and throw in some other craziness, at least a Raven's Crime. How does it fair with only one Life from the Loam?

My opinion about Flamewake phoenix is that is like an upgraded bloodghast (2/2 with evasion yes please!), but just as bloodghast it's lackluster if it's not in multiples, that's why adding just one felt like just fifth ghast with evasion, So I added two more and it worked quite well for me, it looks like three it's the magic number, and the landbase can support it, (a Set of Red/black Fast lands are a must to mitigate life lost). having at least two red sources can be attained in the first turns. Also I've considering swapping a number Golgari trolls for imps changing one dredge for a potential blocker on turn three it looks like a better choice.
The sideboard is a work in progress
Reading your advices it's most welcome.
