Ballzanya on Eldarzi sacrifice *Need help converting to mordern

2 weeks ago

Take out the Foul Orchards and replace them with Woodland Cemetery. Take out the Evolving Wilds regardless of whether more expensive fetchlands replace them or not. Add a couple Overgrown Tomb and maybe one Hissing Quagmire.

For creatures, you need Blood Artist, Gravecrawler, Geralf's Messenger, Relentless Dead, Bloodghast, Vengevine, Thragtusk, and Bloodsoaked Champion. Replace the From Beyond with Awakening Zone but only play 2. It might work in modern as well, haven't tried building an aristocrats in the format but it seems like it would help the theme of your deck. Evolutionary Leap, and Eldritch Evolution might be good if you have enough four or five drops to ramp into by sacking two drops and three drops. Add some hand disruption in the form of Inquisition of Kozilek and Smallpox in the main, and a couple Duress in the sideboard. Fatal Push and Abrupt Decay for removal and this seems like it might be a reasonable deck.

SurpriZe on Combo? Where We're Going, We Don't Need Combo

Hi Coinman1863, great deck! I'm really enjoying it so far. What do you think of replacing something with Awakening Zone/Reassembling Skeleton/Bloodghast? Or do you believe there are enough ways to produce bodies as it is?

Stormcaller on Tolsimir Dogeblood, howl about that?

ZendikariWol as I said most of this elves are in the deck for untility. Althoug I agree with most of your critcism. So Ezuri, Renegade Leader is probably going out and Joraga Warcaller is definatly going out.

On my commander choice: Tolsimir isn't the best commander for this deck, Rhys the Redeemed would probably be the better choice. I picked Tolsimir because I like him, not because he's the most optimal commander. At last my playgroup is pretty casual, but I might swap him at a later point.

Workman4137 I like the idea of Seance I'll look into it.

Doubling Season is on my acquire list. I hope they'll reprint it in M25 so the price will drop.

Awakening Zone and From Beyond are good token producers but i don't really have mana problems. I'd rather make space for something else.

I feel like if you had some extra token producers like Awakening Zone and From Beyond, you can really accelerate your mana base with the populate mechanic. Just some food for thought.

One of the more underrated cards for trostani has got to be Seance. Hear me out: with you getting a token of that creature, you can use the populate mechanic to make more of that token. Sure you exile the original but with how many token doublers like Anointed Procession Primal Vigor Doubling Season and Parallel Lives I think you can manage with one card being exiled. Especially if you get 4 Ulvenwald Hydras out of it!

DrunkManSquakin666 on Gravedigger Meren

Not sure how low you mean by budget, but alright... W shall assume you mean under $10/card... With that in mind, here are a few cards I'm running in mine that are in that price range:

Barter in BloodSlum Reaper(Basically, extra fleshbags; you can never have too many in a Meren deck.)

Buried Alive is a staple in these kinds of decks for a reason, and if you can afford it, Entomb is only a couple of dollars above the budget mentioned. If not, you could go without it, I'm sure.

Zulaport CutthroatBlood ArtistFalkenrath NobleSavra, Queen of the GolgariMake your opponents suffer every time you sac something. =3

Carnage Altar is essentually an additional backoods.Zombie Infestation's a good discard outlet, and produces you some nice tokens for sacrifice.Beacon of Unrest can be a strictly better Rise.Oversold Cemetery is quite nice as well.Krosan Grip can help shut down infinite combos.Pawn of Ulamog and Awakening Zone double as sac fodder AND mana acceleration. To make matters worse for the peasants you wish to torment,they trigger Grave Pact when you use them for mana. =3

Finally, Solemn Simulacrum is an all-around staple in Commander that Meren is espeially fond of. I hope that helps. :)

Hi shub, I was glad to find your deck since I couldn't find others that were focusing on Deceiver of Form. Since I've been finetuning my own Deceiver of Form deck, I do have some thoughts and suggestions.

Pathbreaker Ibex is indeed one of the most powerful things you can do with the Deceiver, since Biovisionary requires blue.

Mirror Gallery opens up a lot of avenues for abuse. For instance, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is even better than Angrath's Marauders since she reduces damage taken and also flies over blockers.

A token strategy would create more bodies to be transformed by Deceiver of Form. Awakening Zone and From Beyond ramp you while also providing bodies. Utvara Hellkite squares the number of creatures you have by spawning dragons.

Conduit of Ruin searches for the Deceiver, and also reduces the cost of your creatures.

Lord of the Void is good on its own and ridiculous if you have an army of them.

Savage Ventmaw gives so much mana if you attack with a few of them.

Avatar of Woe goes well with the Deceiver and doesn't wipe your army unlike Elesh Norn without Mirror Gallery.

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid can steal all the lands from a player if you have at least 7 creatures, although you aren't playing other druids to benefit from it without the Deceiver.

Scroll Rack is really good for setting up creatures on the top of your library.

Anyway, it's great to see a Deceiver of Form deck. Do check out my deck too and let me know what you think!

BMHKain on The Dead Walker that never was Returning Alive...

@alexremy & Dadada5717: Well, there goes two more walkers. And Bitterblossom & Awakening Zone (The latter included if people don't want that either.).

Which means I have to decide on Door to Nothingness, an Oath, or maybe another walker...

I wonder...
