Card/Deck Low Power Card Spotlight

Aren't most of the graveyard filling cards safety net including anyway?



just don't start dredging up your Gravetroll before you've drew either the LabMan himself OR a piece of creature recursion.
 
The safety net is the "creature recursion" you mention, not any of the cards shown, except the Wand with it's second ability (which is why it's a nice card).

Winding Way in no ways offers you the chance to get LM back from the dead. Something like grapple with the past is a good example of a GY-filler that also offers recursion, but far be it from most GY fillers having that feature.
 
Lots of great back and forth!

@Rasmus Källqvist You're right! We've been getting a lot more graveyard fuel that makes discarding or milling late-game business core to the deck's game plan. And I like the versatility of some of these options in that they are valuable to a variety of other color combinations.

And with so much fuel available to spend your mana on in your graveyard, I think there are some cool lands interactions between {U} and {G} that can get pretty interesting:

Well, with loot effects ypu can just chose to not discard lab man, and with winding way, you can chose creatures to not mill it. Just to clarify what I meant here.

But yeah, I think simic selfmill is a very deep and rich archetype and of course works well with black too. But to stay on colors, here are a few more unmentioned cards I've liked in that archetype:
