Today we are playing golgari scam. The plan is to use Undying Maliceimage and Necrogen Communionimage along with prototype creatures like Phyrexian Fleshgorgerimage to upgrade them by allowing them to intentionally die and return as their larger forms. We can also use Undying Maliceimage to protect card like Glissa Sunslayerimage and Bloated Contaminatorimage. Undying Maliceimage works well with the Contaminator because it can give is a +1/+1 counter which can be proliferated by it and Vraska, Betrayal's Stingimage. Necrogen Communionimage is also nice because it give toxic 2 which can allow us to occasionally get some poison wins. Besides that we have some more counter synergies with Evolving Adaptiveimage, Armored Scrapgorgerimage, and Simian Simulacrumimage. These counters can be proliferated growing our board. Simian Simulacrum is a nice card to protect with our scam card because we can get it's ETB a second time further buffing a creature we control. Lastly, we have [[Infectious Bite which can help give more poison counters to our opponents as well as act as removal if used with a creature with deathtouch (like Bilious Skulldwellerimage) and can gain us life if used with Phyrexian Fleshgorgerimage because of it's lifelink.
