    has anyone tried rhythm of the wild, card looks good specially that we already running commune with the gods to fetch this enchantment giving haste to our big creature or +1/+1 counter with a vengevine trigger looks good.

    sharing to you guys my updated list after 2 weeks of testing in 40 matches (22/40 record mostly in xmage).
    https://deckstats.net/decks/121773/1200683-dredgevine/en
    I've also put a sideboarding guide in the decklist for some of the decks that i've played with. (Feel free to correct some of my sideboarding decisions)
    So far in my testing the worst match-up i've played were: UW Control and UR Phoenix.
    -UW Control, has so many exile effect and once Jace or Teferi hit's the board the only conclusion would be gg.
    -UR Phoenix, the major problem is "Thing in the Ice" with all of it's bounce effect but maybe also because of my sideboard (no surgicals since i've sold my copies prior UMA in fear of a reprint Frown ). I haven't had a concrete sideboarding plans yet for this match-up.

    hi! does anyone here know the reasoning behind the # of x-cmc creatures? from the protour list most decks tend to have 8 x-cmc creatures and now the latest winning list mostly have 4 x-cmc.

    i've ask this because i'm trying to figure out the number of x-cmc needed if i would use rix maadi reveler.

    thanks to you and your wife! hope with this primer and reprint of vengevine/bridge from below we can encourage more pilots to play and develop this archetype!

    testing update:
    Chamber Sentry - i did like the X-CMC creature can be cast for 0 for speed and sentry can also easily be cast as a 2/2 or 3/3 and the body is very much welcome treat specially on G2. i think Endless One would be a better choice as X-Creature but there are times wherein the ability of Sentry comes in handy.
    *update: switched to walking ballista

    Grave Strength - not that good, it's a mistake to have other creatures lingering in our graveyard specially against BG decks. the card is also an auto board-out in sideboarded games due to weakness against graveyard hate. I'd had replaced this with Altar's Reap, reap has a good synergy with Stitcher's Supplier (mill from supplier first before deciding to draw or dredge). Altar's Reap is also good at sideboarded match in drawing our boarded card.

    here's my updated decklist for anyone interested: https://deckstats.net/decks/121773/1165498-dredgevine/en

    we have a new card in Rix Maadi Reveler.
    it can possibly replace wayfinder or salvage cards.

    hello! anyone still on this deck? stomping ground might get reprinted in allegiance and i may be able to play this vengevine variant.

    what do they think about experimental frenzy if used here?

    hi! just want to share with you my latest dredgevine decklist hoping someone might take an interest to check our beloved archetype again.
    i know the current meta is high on graveyard hate but nobody can stop vengevine from coming back Smile


    Unusual Card Choices:
    Chamber Sentry: sentry helps us to hit 2nd creature trigger for vengevine easily without to much stress on mana, it's not a bad topdeck as it can easily enter as a 3/3 (or 4/4 if we use mana confluence) and provide a wider atk together w/ angler and vengevine, lastly it provides reach to finish the game.
    (*note: i know the "X" and tapping is annoying but i consider this ability as a bonus, no need to bother about it's "5c-return" ability, it's unlikely to be activated). Sentry takes the slot of Lotleth Troll, the troll will be missed, it's a zombie / a discard engine / and has evasion, but my complain with troll is that "we want to have "R" on turn1 and "BG" on turn 2 or 3 for troll which gives stress on the manabase.

    Grave Strength: i didn't knew this card exist until i saw it in UMA spoiler, it's a mill and buff card in one, one of the disadvantage of dredgevine is the many 1-power creature which has little impact late game. grave strength helps by buffing them and is great on menace/flying/sentry to have a wider atk on the opponent. the big drawback for grave strength is the risk of a 2 for 1. a resolve grave strength on a creature then removed later is not a problem since we already benefited from the mill, the problem is when they respond with a removal to our target making grave strength fizzle. atleast grave strength will divert a removal away from our angler. (*note: normally side-out in game2)

    Removal:
    Lightning Axe: one mana removal and a discard engine, additional discard engine helps since we remove lotleth troll.
    Fatal Push: another one mana removal and the deck has an easy way of triggering revolt.
    Darkblast: this could be Golgari Thug but darkblast has so many target in the current meta to pass. Darkblast can kill 1/3 of the Top50 most played creatures in modern (mtggoldfish list).

    my list is so far away from being optimal and some of the card choices are due to budget reasons. i love dredgevine and i like tinkering my decklist. feel free to give your opinion about this list, thanks!

    *note: i'll bring this list next week in a small tournament, sideboard suggestion is highly appreciated Smile thanks!

    hi! i would like to ask something about grave strength with the scenario below:

    scenario: i have a grizzly bear in play and i cast grave strength choosing grizzly bear. my opponent respond with fatal push while grave strength is on the stack.

    question: will the mill effect of grave strength still resolve after this or it also fizzle? thanks!

    *note: i'm normally confused how spells resolve with "target" and "choose" wordings.

    @headminerve and Phelpssan, thanks! this archetype is really new to me, you're answer provides a different approach from what i've used to in dredge archetype (claim, trophy, etc) and this gives me a new insight about sideboarding, thank you!

    hi! i'm new with this archetype and i would like to ask how this deck fare against "enchantment" based graveyard hate like void and rip?
    i'm very specific with "enchantment" since red has access to abrade/ thanks in advance!
