Archfiend of Depravity Discussion
3 weeks ago
I see that you like combos but no Spore Frog ? That one will save u with 1 health and make u win. And if u have ever played against a token deck you will know it is hard to beat with meren. U might want to look into token killers such as Archfiend of Depravity or Virulent Plague just some suggestions. (: great deck Upvoted. You can look at mine for some ideas if you want as well I have been playing meren and tuning her for a long time.

Yes!! There are many ways to cut costs in Kaalia of the Vast, you can easily cut $600 to $650 in lands alone. To keep the consistency you may need to trade fetching/dual lands in for some enters tapped scry lands, but even if you lose 1-3 turns of speed, it is still viable. Ash Barrens.
There is a great article on some to the creatures, Kaalia of the Vast - The Benchwarmers. I found it quite a fun article when I read it, and the big Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Rune-Scarred Demon with big red "CUT" printed on them is pretty funny. There are many great A/D/D that have low financial value that are quite excellent!
Could go in a dragon direction with Oros, the Avenger or protection in Deathless Angel. Admonition Angel can be superstar in the right build, Archangel Avacyn Flip is down in price, Archfiend of Depravity is a barg-oon, Bruna, the Fading Light can give you a nice Brisela, Voice of Nightmares. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is awesome, Maralen of the Mornsong. Reya Dawnbringer can also be quite powerful.
Really creature wise your only losing Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Balefire Dragon that are over $10. Some of the other guys like Dark Confidant and Serra Ascendant or Stoneforge Mystic are really just fluff and can easily be changed out.
Hope some ideas here or in the article.

Nice deck! It does seems to depend on wether you can get and keep your commander on the battlefield. Maybe add some other creatures as backup?
Some idea's, depending on your budget.

So I've been playing meren for a long time and if you have ever played against a token deck you will know how you can get slaughtered. Definitely include token killers such as Virulent Plague ( this will not only defeat tokens but also cards like khalitas that kill merens graveyard and create tokens) and Archfiend of Depravity which will keep them down to two creatures with makes it easier to make them sacrifice. You also should put in Gray Merchant of Asphodel that card is a game winner. Caustic Caterpillar is also a great utilty creature as it will stop people from putting out enchantments like Grave Pact. Speaking of that enchantment, Dictate of Erebos and Butcher of Malakir would also be a good addition. as well as Slum Reaper to help out the sacrificing. If you like doubling your counters early on Winding Constrictor and Strionic Resonator have proven great. Just some suggestions. (: You can look at my meren deck for other suggestions if you like these.

Good start Mulle. You need to switch it's tag from standard to anything else, if not all of the comments you get will be about that insignificant detail. As for your deck, it looks really fun and I really like the Warrior tribal theme.
Now for some suggestions: Oketra's Monument Cost reduction for white creatures and more warriors.----Brutal Hordechief You're playing aggro and his ability bypasses a board stall.----Devoted Crop-Mate Your opponent will need to stop this guy, reviving fallen warriors is always good.----Glory-Bound Initiate This guy hits hard when exerted, if he is unblocked it equates to an 8 point life swing. If he's blocked, you still gain 4 life on top of his combat damage.----Mardu Strike Leader He is a warrior who creates warriors, need I say more?----Obsidian Battle-Axe Every warrior that you get after this is on the battlefield can have +2/+1 and haste... yeah.----Metallic Mimic This wonder of Kaladeshi ingenuity is great in every tribal deck ever, literally!----Anguished Unmaking Exile anything you can target is worth 3 life more often than not.----Cremate If you are using Mardu Woe-Reaper because someone in your playgroup is playing a graveyard build, this card can replace that mechanic with a better upside. Draw a card > gain 1 life & any card > creature only.----Declaration in Stone Against builds running 4x copies or tokens this card does work. Trust me, it's worth considering.----Long Road Home A great way to protect one of your creatures, cast in respone to your opponent's spell and it comes back stronger.--Path to Exile This is a great way to exile for one mana. Though against certain decks letting your opponent fetch a land is bad. Worth consideration but requires evaluation utilizing information that I don't have.----Suffer the Past Another graveyard-hate card, but the upside to this one is that it can also finish off an opponent.----Swords to Plowshares One mana to exile, one mana. Even if they gain a few life this card is a staple in most white decks.----Utter End Another way to exile anything you can target. It costs one more mana than Anguished Unmaking but does not burn 3 life.----Adaptive Automaton Has been a staple of tribal decks for a long while, but is now competing with Metallic Mimic. The argument about which is the right choice is quite divisive. Mimic comes in earlier and permanently buffs each creature (of the chosen type) after it, whereas Automaton buffs everything (of the chosen type) as soon as it hits the battlefield. Your choice I guess.----Cover of Darkness In the right matchup this card reads "at the next damage step, you win the game", In other matchups it's terrible. I had to mention it since you're running a Black aggro deck.----Stoneforge Masterwork Deserves an honorable mention due to you running a tribal deck.----Mirage Mirror A recent card that I think could start to see play in decks looking for ways to use mana in the late game.
The cards that I would put on the chopping block first: Archfiend of Depravity It's a great card but does not contribute to the tribal theme.----Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip Sweet after flipped but difficult to flip without a sacrifice option.----Mardu Woe-Reaper Has some utility but there are much better options for those slots.----Scoured Barrens Enters tapped and gains one life could be upgraded with a number of other lands. (Isolated Chapel, Mana Confluence, Marsh Flats, Orzhov Basilica, Scrubland, and Tainted Field (If you decide to lean toward Black more) for instance)
That's all I've got for now, if you would like me to take another look later let me know. Good luck and happy hunting!

In commander, Dragonlord Kolaghan seems a bit useless... though there are a couple of critters that say neener-neener to the one-per-customer rule, so that depends highly on your meta.
I don't see Thundermaw Hellkite, Baneslayer Angel, or Archangel of Thune, oddly enough. Those three are fairly ubiquitous in Kaalia decks with good reason. Platinum Angel and Archfiend of Depravity are less common, but would still prove to be quite solid inclusions to what you're going for, here.
Looking pretty good, though!

Some of these aren't super serious suggestions, but I think adding a few more Nicol Bolas cards from HOU would be cool. Also some of them may alternatively be good cards for your other deck.
