Doomgape Discussion

midget_overlord on Meren of Clan Nel Toth

My friend swears by Deadbridge Chant in his Meren deck. Doomgape is also consistently a top player in his. Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath is fun, but not always the best. Constantly recurring Mycoloth leads to things getting out of control quickly. Strionic Resonator for double meren triggers.

Alright, it seems the deck is a bit top heavy. Here are my suggestions. I have structured this rework of the deck to sac and get the mana out quick till you can have Meren stay on the board long enough or just hard cast the big things. You don't have to take my suggestions but I highly insist that this will make her work again.

Take out Nirkana Revenant for Satyr Wayfinder

Take out Hermit Druid for Ravenous Chupacabra

Take out Demon of Catastrophes for Viridian Zealot

Thanks for the advise! I agree that the deck definately misses a sac outlet. Was thinking of Doomgape but I think it might be a major downside that it is at the end of your upkeep. Still going to try it though! Another option would be High Market which fits nicely into the land subtheme :) Another thing I'm currently looking at is cutting some of the stuff that reacts with land in the graveyard like Crop Rotation and World Shaper and replacing them with more creatures and maybe a Tooth and Nail or a Green Sun's Zenith.

You've got a decent number of creatures in here that need a sacrifice outlet for you to truly abuse them with Horde of Notions. Many of the evoke creatures need to die to trigger their effects as well, and playing them with Horde of Notions doesn't let you evoke them. I would suggest running a couple of sacrifice outlets. Doomgape gives you some life by sacrificing your creatures, while Magmaw can sacrifice any nonland permanent to ping things. Both of these are elementals and can be recurred by Horde. Some nonelemental options I really like are: Infernal Tribute (lets you sacrifice pretty much anything to draw cards) and Greater Good (sculpts your hand and dumps reanimation targets into the graveyard). However, I'm now realizing that Infernal Tribute has a really awful mana cost, so you probably can't fit it in.

Lotuslaz1 on Jarad, To the Graveyard! (Help please)

Two trains of thought for b/g decks jarad especially.

1: kill using graveyard shinnanigans eventually outvaluing anything your opponent can do ie Fleshbag Marauder,Grave Pact,Reanimate,Living Death

2: grow your board with beaters that you can sac for more damage later Lord of Extinction,Doomgape,Worldspine Wurm

Trying to ineffectively do an infinate is counterproductive either focuse on that having Miki as ur general or try focusing on your plan for this deck.

Dredge is great for graveyard fun. Dont forget about reanimator stuff too like Rise from the Grave to bring back scary stuff like Doomgape. Delirium works well too.
