Eldritch Evolution Discussion

Cool_Cloud on Sultai Evolution

Thanks for the comment. I haven't been able to actually test it out and consistency is definitely one of my concerns. My original build included another Tireless Tracker and Duskwatch Recruiter  Flips, but it felt like a straight beat down deck. Since my original goal was to win with eternals, I wanted a variety of creatures to eternalize if my opponent doesn't give me good targets. Eternalizing Void Grafters is very appealing since you can do it at instant speed. The Altered Egos are there as 2nd and 3rd copies of other creatures. Gold fishing this deck, I noticed that I regularly found myself tutoring for Thought-Knot Seer or Reality Smasher and copying them with the Altered Egos. The Hope of Ghirapurs are there to offer an easy target to eternalize and to prevent my Eldritch Evolutions from being countered which would be a blow out. I'm not completely sold on the Hope of Ghirapurs, but I really want to try them out since I expect control to be more prevalent.

I know that if you're playing Eldritch Evolution you can tutor for what you need so it makes sense to have a variety of 1 ofs. but I think you might want to cut down a little bit to add some more consistency. is Altered Ego just a budget choice over running more high impact cards? because you don't look like you'll be putting too many +1/+1 counters on it and copying your opponents stuff is a little riskyi'd probably cut the Void Grafters the Hope of Ghirapurs and add more Tireless Trackers and Rishkar, Peema Renegades

Xynarth on Meren, Are You Ready?

De un, tu as trop peu de lands. Monte le nombre total 37. a serait ma premire suggestion.

Deuximement, tu joues vert; o donc est le ramp? Tu veux avoir un dbut un peu plus explosif pour avoir Meren sur le board le plus tt possible, ou du moins, t'assurer d'avoir assez de mana pour toujours la caster. Je ne te dis pas de mettre toutes les cartes, mais deux-trois a ne serait pas mauvais. Golgari Signet c'est quasiment un must pour te corriger dans tes couleurs si jamais tu fais une btise.

Ramp/Mana Fix : Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, Cultivate, Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, Explosive Vegetation,Garruk Wildspeaker, Golgari Signet

Il y a des meilleurs sac outlets qu'Altar of Dementia. Personnellement je runnerais plutt Carrion Feeder ou Yahenni, Undying Partisan. Ce sont des cratures gnantes/para-tonnerres et c'est dj plus synergique.

Living Death je l'utilise comme un anti-wipe. Si je viens de me faire clear le board, a me permet de tout ramener, Meren incluse, tout en liminant le board d'un autre (potentiellement). N'importe quel reanimator deck devrait le jouer selon moi.

Mimic Vat c'est juste fun. a te permet de ramener non seulement ton stock, mais aussi celui des adversaires, sans pour autant nuire Meren. Je pense toujours des cratures comme Avenger of Zendikar, Craterhoof, Hornet Queen qui ont des gros ETB. a te permet une certaine flexibilit si jamais Meren n'est plus sur le board.

Sac/Utility : Eldritch Evolution, Carrion Feeder, Viscera Seer, Living Death, Mimic Vat, Jarad's Orders, Hangarback Walker

On en parlait d'ETB. Je mettrais dfinitivement les 3 ici. Acidic Slime te permet de controller le board de l'adversaire, mme chose pour le Gearhulk, quelque chose que ton deck ne fait pas assez selon moi. En 1v1 c'est pas trop grave, mais en multi, a va te manquer ne pas avoir rien pour grer tes adversaires. Mycoloth te permet de trigger Meren tout en gardant un board impressionant. Pas MVP, mais il peut faire des dgts en pompant Meren, ou mme juste seul.

ETB Effects : Acidic Slime, Noxious Gearhulk, Mycoloth

Control. Grer le board state pour qu'on vienne pas dtruire le tien. Quelques cartes qui peuvent faire la diffrence en empchant un joueur de devenir trop gros. Tu as besoin de flexibilit, Putrefy que tu as dj est un bon exemple.

Control : Krosan Grip, Sudden Spoiling, Naturalize, Ruinous Path, Hero's Downfall, Unravel the Aether

L on tombe dans de quoi que j'adore avoir en tant que reanimator. Des mass draw. Tu veux que ta main soit pleine en tout temps. C'est pas grave si tu as trop de cartes, tu discarderas tes monstres pour les ramener avec Meren de toute faon. a te permet d'avoir tes rponses si jamais quelqu'un tente de prendre le dessus notamment. Quelques uns l-dedans ont une particulirement bonne synergie avec Meren. Momentous, un instant, magnifique, je l'utilise gnralement pour en profiter du fait qu'on vient de dtruire mon commander. 4MC pour 4 cartes si tu sac une Meren qui s'en va dj au cimetire, pas un mauvais trade. Reprocess te permet de trigger Meren. Greater Good te permet de trigger Meren en plus d'alimenter ton graveyard avec des cratures. L'ide c'est d'avoir de la synergie avec ce que tu joues.

Draw : Soul's Majesty, Rishkar's Expertise, Greater Good, Reprocess, Phyrexian Arena, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Momentous Fall, Sylvan Library

L on tombe dans le malheur d'avoir un deck qui est trs focus sur un commander troublant. On a deux choix, soit tu dvies de Meren en jouant plus de cartes qui reanimate (ex. Animate Dead, Rise from the Grave, Dance of the Dead,etc) ou tu joues plus de protection. Si tu peux faire les deux, tant mieux.

Protection : Heroic Intervention, Darksteel Plate, Swiftfoot Boots

Je pense a couvre pas mal toutes les ides que j'avais pour ton deck. C'est sr qu'il y a plein de cartes que tu pourrais rajouter, mais c'est quoi enlever qui finit par tre le problme.

Moi j'ai quelques cartes que j'enlverais de ta liste :

Sensei's Divining Top

Mulch

Triumph of the Hordes (drle quand a marche, mais il y a mieux selon moi).

Altar of Dementia

Evolutionary Leap (y indiqu 2 fois)

Song of the Dryads (cool quand tu joues contre quelqu'un qui ne run pas du anti enchantement, ce qui est trs rare. T'as accs du noir. Joues un vrai anti-crature tant qu' y tre)

Vow of Malice (mme chose que Song).

MegaMatt13 on Rashmi, Tempo Crafter

encelade, Glad you're liking the deck :)

I had Reclaim in there a long time ago. I don't remember why I took it out. I think I'll try putting it back in because I agree the deck could use a bit more graveyard recursion.

Verdurous Gearhulk is ok. I put it in there to have another beater that can close out games. I'm not 100% convinced he's impactful enough. I may trade him out for Soul of the Harvest again which is another beater that at least also draws cards. I like your idea of putting in another tutor though! Eldritch Evolution is a great card and there are enough creatures in the deck that it could be very effective.

TMBRLZ I agree with the suggestion of Eldritch Evolution would probably run more reliably than Uncage. However making this deck I aimed to make it rotation-proof, so nothing before kaladesh. At one point I tried running Pride Sovereign as a three drop instead of the Air Dwarf dude as a token generator, but I often found it just sitting there not providing much pressure or not finding many opportunities to exert, as I usually kept the mana to protect Rhonas or cast the hydra when I had to. Not to mention the cat itself provided no keywords for the Chimera.

I'm kind of iffy on the Uncage.

I fee like something such as Eldritch Evolution may be more efficient.

Still kind of playtesting. Great concept so far.

xyr0s on Which deck should I take ...

Gaea's Blessing isn't really worth it then. Games simply do not go long enough for drawing the same stuff over and over. Card draw is nice, but you pay 2 mana to draw a card and restore 3 cards to your deck... not really a strong play. Eternal Witness is better, then: reclaim a card, and if it survives long enough, or you already have mana for it, sac it to Eldritch Evolution for Glorybringer.

xyr0s on Which deck should I take ...

Gaea's Blessing mainboard? Are you playing against many mill decks? Because mostly this is a sideboard card, and only if being milled out is a very real risk. Harmonize could be good. You lose a bit of ramp, though... you'll just have to see how that goes.

Also, why use Eldritch Evolution? It's a good card, but a lot better with strong ETB/LTB triggers (like Thragtusk). In this deck, you can upgrade one dragon to another, at the loss of a card, and only if you can keep the first dragon in play long enough to evolve it. Also, Eldritch Evolution is a sorcery, so you can't use it to respond to removal (if that was the plan).

Unrelated: can you sort your decklist by card type? It's a bit confusing that Glorybringer is "burn/aggro" and Elderscale Wurm is a "finisher" (especially since glorybringer could easily finish a game). It's boring and the same as everyone else does, but sorting by card-type makes it much easier to get an overview of what is in the deck.
