Can you suggest 3 or 4 evergreen shrubs for poorly drained clay soil that deer won't eat???

Hungry deer will eat almost anything, but the following shrubs are generally not attractive to deer. They tolerate poorly draining soils and are evergreen: Buxus microphylla, Chamaecyparis pisifera, Plume Cypress, Cotoneaster, Ilex glabra, Mahonia aquifolium, Picea abies varieties, Dwarf Norway Spruce. Hope one (or more) fit the bill!
