I just realized I can win with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in hand following this path

  1. Flash into Protean Hulk
  2. Get Karmic Guide and Carrion Feeder
  3. Return Protean Hulk with the Karmic Guide ability
  4. Sacrifice Protean Hulk tutor for Teardrop Kami and Body Snatcher
  5. Discard Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to the Body Snatcher , then sacrifice Body Snatcher to get Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker
  6. From there you can continue with the combo

Also I just wanted to thank you all for helping me build this! I can say proudly say that this deck has made me so many fun memories playing against Control.

Thank You!!!

Vash13 Thank you for the compliment!

That is a good point about Victimize . I might reconsider mainboarding it again. The main reason why I took it out in the first place is that it gives a chance to respond since sacrificing the creature is not a cost but part of the spell resolving, so for the combo to become unstoppable you need another piece like Sylvan Safekeeper out. I opted for other combos that are harder to respond to, e.g. Necromancy at end of the turn as instant or a chain with Body Snatcher where you hold priority and respond to it's own trigger and use a sac outlet. Some of these are a bit more complicated but they are harder to stop (Since getting the nut draw in EDH is always a long shot)

Cut Angel of Despair Eldrazi Displacer Twilight Prophet Archon of Justice Dance of the Dead Sorin, Grim Nemesis

Consider Ravenous Chupacabra Orzhov Locket Junk Diver Dead Man's Chest Big Game Hunter Settle the Wreckage Angel of Condemnation Fiend Hunter weird way to actually permanently exile creatures with this since it's two paragraphs and has 2 triggers on the stack. Flickerform Puppeteer Clique not sure but may be able to permanently steal with this if you exile it with a different card so it's not in when the exile trigger goes off. Didnt look up the interaction/rules. Triad of Fates slow but works perfect for what you want. Maybe Body Snatcher this one is kinda a stretch-ish.

davidlbd, that's not a bad replacement. I personally love Gonti just because of the interesting situations he can create, but Liliana is a great source of discard. We also run Body Snatcher which can discard and recur all in one package. If you find you constantly have a full hand, you could also run Skirge Familiar to turn those discards into extra mana.

I_TappedWrong, I actually just recently took Junktroller out cause he was a little too slow for my tastes. But I'd recommend running him if you have it! He's great and can be a source of infinite with Thornbite Staff and Ashnod's Altar

Yo Paranoidfrog!

For abusing Meren's ability multiple times over I would recommend considering cards like Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , Necromancy , or Phyrexian Delver / Body Snatcher . Also more sac outlets wouldn't hurt as well such as Viscera Seer / Carrion Feeder . Dark Ritual / Culling the Weak also helps getting Meren online as soon as T2!

Feel free to check out my deck list as well for some ideas!

xander11 Since you checked out my deck, I'll check out yours :P

Some suggestions, you can use Body Snatcher as a pseudo Karmic Guide/Phyrexian Delver that can also swap cards from your hand while you have your big fatties in there, this card is a secret tech that not much people know about! xD

While I know your more creature heavy, there is good in using reanimation type cards like the cheap effect ones such as Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, as well as Reanimate (Luckily it's getting reprinted in UMA so that $20 price tag doesn't stay for long). While this card may be broken, Protean Hulk does a lot for your build when you have to sac him to Vraska or Jarad, getting both value and efficiency. I can see there being loops with it going for infinite recursion, but that's if your all for going the combo route.

Some great cards to also run would be like Oversold Cemetery so you can keep a constant amount of creatures to be fodder and sac over and over again. With this in mind some recent cards like Vindictive Lich and Plaguecrafter get extremely fun! Hell's Caretaker is way too slow and there is a better option in Apprentice Necromancer. I'm also surprised you aren't running Living Death unless you run into a creature heavy meta than it's understandable. World Shaper is also one to think about as it is pure value, especially if you delve into a Dredge route as well.

Hope that gives you some feedback and feel free to ask any questions or advice!

I absolutely love Teysa, she is a blast to play as there are so many ways you can play her! Here might be a couple suggestions that may help. Contamination and Bitterblossom is a nasty way to shut down your opponents and if you have Teysa on the field the sac tokens provide you fodder for Teysa's ability, although the cards are quite on higher end side. Plaguecrafter is another recent addition that is a direct upgrade to Fleshbag Marauder. Mindblade Render is a great way to add in more card draw as we are quite limited in the Orzhov colors. Buried Alive is another great way to fill up your graveyard, and the direct upgrade Entomb is also great although quite pricey. One cheap reanimation spell I would recommend would be Dance of the Dead and if you have the budget, Reanimate which is getting reprinted in Ultimate Masters, Necromancy is also a great one. Dread Return also has plenty of synergy with Teysa.

Silence can really mess up people and has quickly becoming a staple in any deck build involving white. Withering Boon and Lapse of Certainty has been great LOL cards that people would never expect. Body Snatcher is also a double up on Karmic Guide that can lead to more combos.

Hope these can help ya and feel free to ask for any advice as I play against my friends competitive Teysa deck often :P
