Here's the deck.

// Lands
4 [M13] Evolving Wilds
1 [RTR] Golgari Guildgate
4 [RTR] Overgrown Tomb
4 [ISD] Woodland Cemetery
7 [ZEN] Forest (2)
2 [ZEN] Swamp (2)

// Creatures
2 [GTC] Wasteland Viper
4 [RTR] Slitherhead
1 [RTR] Deathrite Shaman
4 [RTR] Lotleth Troll
4 [DKA] Strangleroot Geist
3 [RTR] Dreg Mangler
4 [DKA] Predator Ooze
3 [RTR] Deadbridge Goliath

// Spells
2 [DKA] Deadly Allure
3 [M13] Rancor
3 [RTR] Ultimate Price
3 [ISD] Liliana of the Veil
2 [ISD] Garruk Relentless/Garruk, the Veil-Cursed

// Sideboard
SB: 1 [DKA] Deadly Allure
SB: 4 [M13] Duress
SB: 1 [DKA] Tragic Slip
SB: 2 [AVR] Appetite for Brains
SB: 3 [RTR] Deathrite Shaman
SB: 2 [RTR] Abrupt Decay
SB: 2 [ISD] Sever the Bloodline

I've played a few games and am so far 3-0, not sure if just dumb luck or what. I really like golgari, I want there to be more decks, but there just aren't. I'm not sure what to sideboard where, because I'm not sure what the most bang for my buck would be. And I think I should probably drop the evolving wilds, as they just take up a turn, but i do like that they mill my deck down some. Any help would be appreciated.

Sideboard talk:

I would never ever play 4x Duress since there is no way you will board all of them in. In an aggro version i would use the Appetite for Brains and if you think about it, its fairly obvious: When would you board Duress in? Only against control decks with Wrath-effects and planeswalkers, since they can really get you. Like bantdecks, esper and stuff. But if you use Appetite for Brains you can also get their Thragtusks, Angels, maybe Huntmasters and so on. Duress is only a better card if you need to fish for like Sphinx's Revelations or Bonfire of the Damned. And its good to have like one or maybe two of them - but you never want to topdeck a Duress/Appetite. That's why I'm only playing three in sb. So I would add an Appetite and cut like 2-3 Duress.

Right now I dont like Tragic Slip at all: It's not good against other aggressive decks since it won't get the important zombies, the RDW-creatures or the newly build boros decks. Its okay against decks that rely on mana creatures, but thats about it.

I would also add more Abrupt Decays and switch them into the main for the Ultimate Prices. I really love Abrupt Decay since it helps you in the early game state, kills the most relevant planeswalker (Liliana is realy strong against you) and can even kill most aura cards. So add like 3 into the main and one into sb. And keep in like 1 or 2 Ultimate Price and put some into the sb, too.

I dont know why you play 3x Deathrite Shaman in sb, but if you board them in often enough think about putting like 2 more into the main and cut one from sb. If you never board them in then you can cut them.

As for the Evolving Wilds: Yes, you can drop them. Your mana is good enough and you can maybe add another cavern or so.

I would also recomment to try Mayor of Avabruck/Howlpack Alpha in sb against control-decks, because if you play it on turn two and it flippes, you dont need to overcommit your board into a Wrath-effect.
