Thanks! Ill add in Grim Discovery but I think Ill leave Loam out for cost reasons.

KayneMarco: As a Pauper EDH deck, you can only use one uncommon creature as the Commander, and only commons in the 99. Unfortunately neither of those two cards were ever printed/released at common, so they wouldn't be legal. =)

As for the deck...

Echo Circlet & Vanguard's Shield for starters. Plus Cathar's Shield, Accorder's Shield also because you want to keep him untapped and able to block as well as attack. There're other vigilance enablers like True-Faith Censer, too.

Bone Saw & Bonesplitter because you don't really care about his Strength. Maybe even things like Unholy Strength and Predator's Gambit.

So I guess I'm thinking voltron. Which would include things like Bladed Pinions, maybe Flayer Husk and Sickleslicer.

Then of course Vault of Whispers and Darksteel Citadel to help justify that Cranial Plating you got there.

Costly Plunder + Ichor Wellspring / Mycosynth Wellspring.

Night's Whisper should be here. you might like Dash Hopes for late game security, but it's probably useless early on.

I'd also recommend a LOT of recursion/reanimation, that way you can just let your commander die, then get 'em back to avoid Commander-tax. Things like Macabre Waltz, Grim Discovery, etc.

Both Exalted creatures, too? Servant of Nefarox and Duty-Bound Dead.

I'm just tossing out ideas, so maybe something there can help get you started! =)

Hey maldito! Thank you for your comment and suggestions ! I think Life from the Loam and Eternal Witness are still more powerful and versatile and recurrable than Grim Discovery

Rite of Consumption could be interesting, but what bothers me is that it's a sorcery. Most of the time you're going to make the DD combo on end of turn (or before blockers) and kill (or atleast help to kill) on combat step, normally there should be no blockers if you've done your job well with a Meren deck Not being able to instant speed sac it in response to a bounce or an exile card at that crucial moment to steal the win seems really frustrating haha.

I like it.

Since you've got Dark Depths, I'd suggest adding Grim Discovery, though I'm not sure what to cut.

Also, I've found that Rite of Consumption works well with Marit for a OTK.

Ever thought of using Grim Discovery as another way to grab Command Beacon out of the graveyard?

Hi Venom_Pistachio, thanks for the comments on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Here are some potential cuts:

Grim Discovery | Return to the battlefield is better, skips the Kaalia of the Vast requirement

Ruthless Ripper | He's too small, and not going to do much for you

Skyblinder Staff | Not necessary

Vessel of Endless Rest | Planning to infinite combo this?

Congregate | Rarely going to be too valuable / too situational

Boros Guildmage | Use a Dragon Tempest or something, creatures too easy to remove, and mana sponges

One or a couple of these should get you Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in there.

Some other suggestions:

Angel of Despair destroys a permanent for about $3, good with Panharmonicon as well.

Swiftfoot Boots better way to get haste (and hexproof) for equip 1, better than Boros Guildmage

Anguished Unmaking is a great permanent exile, think Purphoros, God of the Forge or along that lines

Bloodgift Demon gives you an extra draw each turn for under $1

Zealous Conscripts can go infinite with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (same as Restoration Angel), for about 50 cents

Hope that helps!

One awkward thing about having child as your commander is that in order to blow up the world, you need to have it go to the graveyard instead of the command zone. You don't have many ways of putting child back into the command zone limiting how often you can use it as board wipe. One of the ways i do it in my deck is Pharika, God of Affliction. When child changes zones from graveyard to exile using pharika's ability, you can put it back into the command zone where it can be recast. Since pharika is indestructible, it will stick around after everything is nuked for you to do it again later. It's also nice to have graveyard hate for whatever graveyard shenanigans your opponents are up to. Relic of Progenitus does the same thing, you can exile your commander from your graveyard with the world destruction trigger on the stack to put it back into the commnad zone, then everything explodes. It's a lot easier to hold up that having but it's a 1 shot use as child will destroy it anyways. Grim Discovery can put child and one of your dead manlands back into your hand.

You might be able to get some use out of Scapeshift. In my child deck I use it to grab Maze's End and all the gates, untap hem using Amulet of Vigor and then activate maze and win on the spot. I don't think you have enough slots for all 11 of those lands but even still, exchanging the ones you have for the needed manlands in your deck still might be worth it. You can get even more value using your crucible, life from the loam, Splendid Reclamation, etc. Bring to Light can find it or a lot of other good spells from your deck.
