Grim Haruspex Discussion

NV_1980 on Meren Sax Value Train

Good to see another Meren player. She's been one of my favorites ever since she appeared and I too, have been slowly developing her deck. Here is my version: Meren's Returning Army.

One of my favorite cards in that deck is Life from the Loam. Its an amazing ramp card and its dredge function just makes it OP in a Meren deck. Diligent Farmhand makes for a decent alternative, in case you can't use Loam.

I'm also very fond of the cards that allow me to do stuff with cards in my opponents' graveyards. My main approach is to try and exile whatever is in there. Bojuka Bog, Leyline of the Void, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Mimic Vat are all awesome for that. A great alternative is to just steal whatever is in there. My favorites to use are the transformed Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip and Grave Betrayal.

What I would also recommend for your deck is to add some more ways to draw cards. Personally, I am using stuff like Deathreap Ritual, Grim Haruspex and Harvester of Souls because they make so much sense in a Meren deck.

Hope any of this helps. Happy gaming!

I ended up dropping Ichor Wellspring in favor of Skullclamp.

How has Grim Haruspex been? When I had this list at about 150 cards before trimming it was in there but I figured at the time there were so many token sacrifices it might not always be worth it. Granted Reassembling Skeleton and Bloodghast go a long way with it.

Haha Mindslicer shenanigans is always fun.

Skullclamp has been a powerhouse for me with all the tokens and sacrifices. Plus, it makes people sometimes not block just to avoid you getting the draws.

I've been trying a few things for card draw like Grim Haruspex and Ulvenwald Mysteries which seem to help out. Also that's another reason I'm trying more recursion sources since if I can draw more things why not just get back the ones I already played.

Hi! This seems to be a sweet deck :-)

I've build something similar ( Black Sac Attack (Modern Fun) ) and i consider to add some Grim Haruspex from yours.

A couple suggestions:1.Fauna Shaman is a great creature tutor and also gets creatures into your graveyard to reanimate2.Puppeteer Clique works well with recursion especially with persist and you can use his ability to generate sacrifice fodder.3.You probably want Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord in there because he combos with Phyrexian Devourer and has great synergy with most recursion anyway.4.NO Grim Haruspex?!?5Deadbridge Chant is awesome in this deck especially when you could ramp into it early

For cards to take out... Kindred Dominance seems pretty strange in this deck unless there is some tribal sub theme i'm missing. In Garruk's Wake is better if you want to protect your own board.Grave Betrayal is often a letdown and a big one at 7 mana. Considering you're not running Butcher of Malakir or Grave Pact it doesn't seem like you're focusing on creature removal. It doesn't seem to me like you're milling yourself enough to effectively use LFTL. I playtested the deck and found that I never got lands into my graveyard and Life from the Loam was just dead the whole time. It's a great card but it doesn't really fit the strategy.

Athreos, God of Passage is mostly focused on enter the battlefield effects that create a ton of value. Life gain could work as a utility mechanism but I wouldn't rely on Felidar Sovereign as a win-con with Atrheos. Your commander is best at grinding and taxing.

Your deck could use some sac outlets to activate Athreos's ability.

Combine the sac outlets with for example Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact to clear boards and force people to either lose life or return your threads to hand.

I would also consider some board wipes like; Damnation, Decree of Pain and Day of Judgment.

Furthermore you need some much needed mana rocks to be consistent with your game-plan.

And last of some cards that I really like within an Athreos build;

I hope there are some cards within this list that fit your build!

Are you set on keeping this mono-black? Even at a really budget price, something like Rally the Ancestors or Return to the Ranks would greatly increase your staying power in games. Or staying in Mono-Black you can get a lot of great consistent fueling cards like Grim Haruspex and Immortal Servitude, even ignoring pricier options like Bridge from Below. I think that the sacrifice to draw cards are overrated and not that useful because they only get you a few cards from each one, whereas a Grim Haruspex could draw you a lot more cards.
