Butcher of Malakir Discussion

So you definitely need Slum Reaper and Butcher of Malakir those are just more juice to sacrifice opponents creatures. I would also recommend more token killers or specific creatures wipes such as Sanguine Praetor and Minister of Pain since tokens are the deadliest against meren. other than that it's looking good. You can check out my meren edh deck i have as well and u might find some ideas.

I would recommend putting in Butcher of Malakir as well as Necropotence for card draw. And the more deathtouch the better for Olivia.

Tempted to remove Bad Moon just for another land. With such a high average CMC, I need those land drops. Might drop Butcher of Malakir since he almost never see's play (I'm sure that can happen with a 99 card deck haha). But I could throw in a cheaper creature on the off chance I need it. Like Pawn of Ulamog since he can be both cheap and create tokens, as well as those tokens help trigger Morbid and give me mana. Unfortunately, he doesn't care for tokens being sacrificed, unlike Butcher.

If I trade out an equal cost card, I'd prefer Overseer of the Damned, but Blood Speaker might take the spot for now.

DarkJunderMaster, thank you for the comments and suggestions, and the +1! Devoted Druid got taken out because I felt like I got better value out of Sakura-Tribe Elder. I'm not running Mike and Trike because Mike is a $20 card I don't have. Your third combo isn't one I was aware of, but looks a bit nicer, price wise, and could be an option for the deck, but I'd rather not exile cards I could reuse with Meren. I added Butcher of Malakir because with Meren out, he can be recurred if its needed, as the enchantments can't if they get removed. Just one more option to have.

I keep tinkering with it, so if I come across the chance to plug some of those in and try it, I'll let you know.

I would like for you to lay out the third combo for me, Necrotic Ooze + Phyrexian Devourer and Triskelion.

I'll take a look at your build.

If you have Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos, Butcher of Malakir is not needed. Why was Devoted Druid taken out? I would consider placing it back in but add in the combo piece for him Devoted Druid + Quillspike . You get an infinite power and toughness creature. With cards like Altar of Dementia it could be a mill combo or sacrifice it to Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and kill all of your opponents. If no one has an answer to this you instantly win. There is also the OG Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion or Necrotic Ooze + Phyrexian Devourer + Triskelion . How this one works is by having Phryexian Devour and Trike in the graveyard with Necrotic Ooze on the batrlefield. TAKE A look at my They Will Never Die deck. Otherwise good deck build. +1

Butcher of Malakir and Xathrid Demon would be cool.

While Magus of the Disk has its value, I absolutely despise board wiping. I also don't like lock down strategies which is why I removed Dictate of Erebos and Butcher of Malakir from the deck. I only play with friends and those kinds of strategies aren't fun.

I think you have enough synnergistic things in here. You want more draw/get there cards. I'd suggest replacing the cheesy/unlikely combos (ie Tree) with things like Vampiric Tutor, Sylvan Library, Mirri's Guile, Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, Phyrexian Altar etc.

Given that you have 2/3 of the combo in your deck already, I'd throw in an Avenger of Zendikar.Also a must include is Eternal Witness.

Here are some (in my opinion) strict upgrades:

I'd suggest maybe the Butcher of Malakir, Grave Pact, etc combo.

  • Diabolic Tutor &

  • Harmonize --> There are much better of these two, and I think you have enough effects that do these two.

Other than that, I like it a lot. You have a good shell here. Make sure you know your game plan - you're playing a very midgame board state reliant stax/control deck, where you can basically control what's on the board. You have a lot of awesome early game that transitions well into the mid/late. You have a handful of wonderful outs late game.

I might throw in an Exsanguinate as a really awesome finisher. If you're unafraid of countermagic/have a Boseiju, Who Shelters All untapped - you can sac your entire board into ashnod's and just blow up the game with exsanguinate.
