multimedia on Help with Meren plz

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. enigmadox gave you great advice; I'll expand on it some.

Include budget creatures who can sac themselves because these creatures can give you experience counters without needing a sac outlet which is another card. Needing both a creature and a sac outlet to sac that creature is more difficult to get then just needing a creature. Sac outlets are also good and you should include them, but they're not as important in my opinion as creatures who can sac themselves.

Four drop Meren can benefit from early game ramp to be able to possibly play her turn three. Budget mana dorks can be ramp in the early game or sac fodder in the mid/later game to get experience counters.

Budget lands to consider adding:

Other budget cards to consider adding:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer advice on cuts to make. Good luck with your deck.

Cool deck. You should consider Retribution of the Ancients . It is very powerful. also, Evolutionary Leap is extremely powerful when you can keep your creatures. I made a similar deck a while ago, (BG Evolve By Snowmen1) but it never occurred to me that some of these synergies existed. Cool deck!

It looks like you are running Sultai "Good Stuff." Which is ok. But if you start to see yourself wanting to lean in one direction or another, that's when you should start switching cards out to focus on a direction. Do you want to focus on Reanimator? Graveyard matters theme? Or just play fun stuff you don't get to toss into other decks because of Muldrotha's awesome ability?

I personally love reanimation strategies, so I look to getting stuff out of the graveyard. A way you can do this is by switching some of the tutors around for things that pitch stuff into the bin. I'd consider running Evolutionary Leap alongside your Birthing Pod in place of Eldritch Evolution or Demonic Tutor . Animate Dead would be a solid enchantment inclusion. Things like that to think about.

Interesting idea on how to use Meren of Clan Nel Toth

A couple suggestions would be to cut Eldritch Evolution for Evolutionary Leap for keeping a sac outlet open on your board.

Izoni, Thousand-Eyed is another great outlet that nets you card draw/lifegain for but also can help you go wide with her Insect token, or sac them out with Black Market on the field for some massive mana gain!

Reanimate , Recollect , and Diabolic Tutor are all cards I also suggest just as good upgrade cards in general.

Hope this helps! If you need some more ideas be sure to check out my Meren Build deck!

Sylvan Library would have an interesting interaction with Toothy, Imaginary Friend . You draw the two extra cards, so Toothy would get a total of three counters.

Tatyova, Benthic Druid would provide excellent value in this deck. I also think you should run some sac outlets to take advantage of Toothy's card draw. Evolutionary Leap is good, Ashnod's Altar , Birthing Pod , Altar of Dementia , High Market and Claws of Gix are other options.

Okay so first update



Flesh , Malignus and Evolutionary Leap I might aquire when possible, Berserk is a bit out of price range right now.

Although I can imagine Pyroblast being good my group very rarely runs blue so it's probably a waste in this situation.

Thanks for the input!

Shriekmaw instead of Murder

other evoke creature are also really great like Spitebellows

Yavimaya Elder instead of Kodama's Reach

Malignus to have insane a creature with insane easily power.

Berserk is insane in this deck but it's a not a cheap card.

Vulturous Zombie i don't know if he will have enough time to be better than other t5, it might be complicated to help him survive with the few protection you have.

Flesh is good flexible card that will help you finish the game.

Evolutionary Leap and Eldritch Evolution are really greath in green sacrifice deck.

I think that you have enough draw and i don't think that a counter based theme is great in the for the deck, card that double the number of counter are really good but card that only put 1 additonnal counter are not powerful enough.

It could be useful to run Pyroblast or Red Elemental Blast to protect kresh when you are about to finish the game.

Good luck !
