Quote from WarMachinePrime »Have you considered reworking it into a Golgari GB list?
You could pick up Masked Vandal and/or Guardian Gladewalker. Also maybe just go all in on the Mercs as well. Add back in 4 Cateran Brute and drop the Garys and Gurmags. Universal Automaton could fit in as well. Find something that buffs the whole team on attack and go more of an aggro route. Just a thought. If I find the time I might rework your list and post it up.
I'm trying to minimize the number of green spells in the deck to abuse Defile and Tendrils of Corruption.
I like your shapeshifter (mercenary) suggestions however!
