golgarigirl on Meren Madness

Black/Green (as you can guess from the username) is kinda my jam, and reanimator is one of the things it does best. Your Meren actually wants similar things to my Alesha deck...a creature has to die for it to come back and be reused, and creatures that have great effects that you can reuse are going to be the best.

Look for good Enter the Battlefield (ETB) and Leave the Battlefield (LTB) effects at a variety of mana costs to trigger Meren's experience tokens. Look for mana ramp creatures that put lands into play instead of tap for mana such as Sakura-Tribe Elder, Farhaven Elf, Yavimaya Elder, Civic Wayfinder. What you want to ramp into are all the fun different things you can do and then recur. Thragtusk, Woodland Bellower, Greenwarden of Murasa, Agent of Erebos, Priest of the Blood Rite, Ravenous Chupacabra, Fleshbag Marauder

Also look for fun creatures that care when other creatures you control die, since you want that to happen.

Most importantly, sacrifice outlets to a.) stop your creatures from being exiled b.) get that experience as fast as possible and c.) keep reusing those ETB/LTB abilities. Look for cards like Nantuko Husk, Disciple of Bolas, Blood Bairn, Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar

One more note... Elixir of Immortality is your friend. Many players know how dangerous a well-stocked graveyard is, and getting yours exiled can knock the wind from your sails. It's 100% better for it to get shuffled into your library that be gone for good!

Hey, what about Carnival of Souls and Urza's Incubator?

Also, creatures like Blood Bairn, Vampire Aristocrat, Bloodflow Connoisseur and Bloodthrone Vampire could be useful in combat considering that you'll always have some sac fodder for them.

Hi,

first of all I like the low mana curve of your deck. This is how Edgar Markov should be played!

I had Gisa for a bit and looking at your deck you're land heavy and short on ramp. Making your land drops is great but when you're stuck at only that you'll be left in the dust by other decks most times. Charcoal Diamond, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Solemn Simulacrum, Pilgrim's Eye, Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, etc. are options to get you ahead or get lands out of your deck so your draws are action.

Magewright's Stone is another source of untapping to consider.

Surprised to not see wraths like Damnation or Decree of Pain.

Your woefully low on card advantage. Phyrexian Arena, Ob Nixilis Reignited , Sign in Blood, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, etc. do a solid job.

In my deck I employed Blood Bairn, Bloodthrone Vampire and Nantuko Husk to eat zombies and sack it for a ton more. Then reanimate again for more. Necromancy, Dance of the Dead, Animate Dead are always useful in black decks imo.

Hope something helps!

Hi,

my strategy for making your deck faster is:

  1. putting in more cheap vampires as this synergises with your commander more: Insolent Neonate, Kheru Mind-Eater, Guul Draz Assassin, Viscera Seer, Bloodthrone Vampire, Blood Bairn, Vampire Aristocrat, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Malakir Cullblade. This way you can swarm the board early while en passant generating tokens, then attack with Edgar Markov on turn 6.

  2. putting in some ultra aggressive cards. Alongside tokens Mercadia's Downfall can be devastating, for example. Another one would be Mirror Entity. Note that this one is also a vampire and that the +1/+1-counters stay on the creatures when you change their base power and toughness.

  3. cutting some of the more expenise and non-aggressive cards: Campaign of Vengeance, Stensia Masquerade and maybe you should reduce your lifegain/-loss subtheme if you want to go the faster route. Also Vanquisher's Banner is cool tech, but at 5 mana it may be too expensive

By the way: a card that can go absolutely crazy in token tribal decks is Mana Echoes. Unfortunately it is no budget card.

bushido_man96 mentioned some mass removals. Their asymetrical effect is nice but they also cost a lot of mana. Some other really good asymmetrical mass removals for token decks would be Austere Command, Fell the Mighty, Retribution of the Meek and Dusk.

That's all for now. Let me know what you think of my faster game plan.

KIngWiggins on H: Update Binder, W: Walkers, ...

Hello friends. Things have improved and I'm back into playing. I am attempting to finish my Superfriends EDH deck (and one other project), as well as helping someone make her new EDH deck.

I have started updating My Binder, will continue to add more though.

Here is a list of what I need most for Superfriends:
Garruk, Apex Predator
Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury
Gideon, Ally of Zendikar or Gideon, Champion of Justice Either would do, just need one though
Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded (AVR preferred but will take either)
Venser, the Sojourner (SOM Preferred, likely will take either)
Dack Fayden
Ramos, Dragon Engine
Captain Sisay
Necropotence (I really only want deckmasters, but might accept Ice Age)
Full Art Foils Island, Mountain, Swamp, Forest (one of each from Amonkhet)
Fetches/Shocks (Including foils/expeditions)

For other projects (Mainly Foil Vampires, and non foils of the more expensive one):
Edgar Markov (Will over-value)
Mathas, Fiend Seeker
Licia, Sanguine Tribune
Sanctum Seeker (would accept not foil)
Vampire Nocturnus
Captivating Vampire
Baron Sengir
The other Vamp lords and big cards are still needed so just ask.

Some foils Id really like (Will Keep Update):
Vampire Cutthroat
Tithe Drinker
Blood Bairn
Guul Draz Assassin
Havengul Vampire
Indulgent Aristocrat
Stromkirk Captain
Voldaren Pariah  Flip
Stensia Banquet

Looking for other Vamp synergies as well so feel free to recommend and offer.

What do you think about Carrion Feeder instead of Blood Bairn?Costing less, can buff himself permanently & can sacrifice himself.
