Scytec on Who Needs $150+ Decks???

I really need to update the digital version of Meren to match my deck irl...I'm terrible about making changes to my paper decks and not updating them here. Which is really bad when i want comments to tune them. :p

Diabolic Intent is an incredible card in my list, I see you also run Altar of Dementia. This is one of my favorite cards to run...I also thoroughly enjoy it in conjunction with Nighthowler to mill out my opponents super quickly. Combos well with Jarad as well. Also you can bestow Nighthowler on Meren to push through some commander damage post board wipe. Have you used Nighthowler in the past?

Sorry for the double comment, but Diabolic Intent just got a reprint, so it is moderately cheap. :p

Excellent! Nice job, and I love the direction you took it!

Searching Gatherer, I found Grim Tutor, Gifts Ungiven, Beseech the Queen or Diabolic Intent for tutors. Maybe one of them would serve you better?

Thrilling Encore, Diabolic Intent, Virtus's Maneuver, Journey to Eternity  Flip, are all good cards, but they are mostly too expensive to add to the deck at the moment. Depending on pricing trends though, I could see some of them being quite useful.

Golgari Grave-Troll + Life from the Loam + Stinkweed Imp all great means for self milling with dredge. Liliana, Death's Majesty, Living Death, Command Beacon would be really good additions. You have almost no means to sacrifice you own creatures to recur their effects, which is a key component to golgari/sultai. Whisper, Blood Liturgist + Diabolic Intent + Scourge of Nel Toth + Razaketh, the Foulblooded + Eater of Hope are great means for using the etb effect creatures to be able to re-use them again from grave. Replace Taigam, Sidisi's Hand with Sultai Ascendancy because it's pointless to skip your draw step, you never want to exile cards form your graveyard, and it's cheaper. Pelakka Wurm, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Rune-Scarred Demon, Journey to Eternity  Flip, Pattern of Rebirth, The Mending of Dominaria, Birthing Pod, Mimic Vat, Nim Deathmantle, Sword of Feast and Famine, Boseiju, Who Shelters All, Demonic Tutor; all should be considered.

What happens if Timetwister gets exiled (ex. Praetor's Grasp) and you can't counter? Wincons are solely dependent on twister loops without Aetherflux Reservoir don't you think? What is the secondary wincon outside of Twister loops?

Can you also explain why you decided to remove Windfall from the deck? Doesn't this decrease Notion Thief's synergy and some hand refill when need it after you put down all your rocks or dorks?

Diabolic Intent was removed but Culling the Weak is still here? I mean do you often find yourself needing the mana instead of searching for a card in exchange for a creature? Or Culling the Weak stays because it helps cast Paradox?

Lastly, I still can't seem to justify Arbor Elf in my list as there were a lot of times I have it on hand and no Forest at all given that this deck is 4-colored.

Your inputs are appreciated.

Lilbrudder: As a one shot effect, I do have to say that High Tide has been showing some promise. I have tweaked the island count to assist with this however it can be very helpful in deploying Paradox Engine while still having countermagic mana open. I also run Kiora's Follower (since I'm still running Birthing Pod) and Bloom Tender (I know your opinion on this card :P) and have been testing Freed from the Real as a backup line. A bit narrow I know, but it's been pretty good thus far.

On the topic of Cremate, what're your thoughts on Scarab Feast instead? While you don't draw cards off the ability natively, the fact that it hits three cards at once seems a lot better at hosing graveyard based decks like Kess. But it it still provides card advantage against non-graveyard decks.

Also, how has Training Grounds been performing for you? I'm currently testing it out but haven't seen in much.

one last question, since you're comfortable running Culling the Weak, have you considered running Diabolic Intent?

enpc Ahhh, I like the idea of Seasons Past...Also I do own a Diabolic Intent which should go in here.(I could use that over tutor). Finding cuts is always the tough part though.

Thanks for taking a look!
