Junk Aristocrats

This deck is a Junk Midrange build inspired by a recent Grand Prix first place deck.  Although it is a Junk deck, unlike recent builds, the goal of it is not to re-animate card’s such as Griselbrand, Angel of Serenity, Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Craterhoof Behemoth.  It is actually to kill your own creatures and benefit from doing so.

With this deck, your goal is to send your creatures to the graveyard and benefit by doing so with creatures like Blood Artist, Varolz, The Scar-Striped and Cartel Aristocrat, not to mention that Garruk Relentless // Garruk the Veil Cursed also likes creatures in the graveyard.

As the game goes on, your goal is to set up an army of spirits by means of Doomed Traveler and Lingering Souls while also using Cartel Aristocrat's ability to trigger Blood Artist's ability getting the most out of sending your creatures to the graveyard.  Then, you began to beef up your creatures by means of Garruk Relentless or Varolz.  After doing so you start slamming in with creatures like Cartel Aristocrat, Obzedat, Ghost Council and the spirits you build up throughout the game.

The sideboard not only provides you with graveyard and control hate, but also gives you some cheap removal and a way to make your deck more aggressive.
