Smothering Abomination is another Grim Haruspex and Infernal Tribute will let you sac either one of those so you don't kill yourself

I like Dryad Arbor, and Meren can really abuse it. I don't like that it's affected by summoning sickness. It basically makes it a CC mana dork, but making it a creature to sac to Meren is very nice.

If you're looking for more card draw, Infernal Tribute is a nice addition.

I will provide as many sac outlets as I can think of; you're in luck the last two EDH decks I've made (Child of Alara and Chainer) run a plethora of outlets.

Indestructible sac outlets like Bontu the Glorified or Yahenni, Undying Partisan may be of use to you here. For me, they stay alive when Child triggers, but for you, Yahenni not only does that, but also can be a legal target for Alesha.

Utility sacs: Morbid Curiosity - Heaven forbid you hardcast Master of Cruelties, sac and draw 5 for seems sweet in my books.

Mind Slash: you seem to like looking at people's hands. :)

Infernal Tribute: Triple Black, the same problem as the card below, but you can pitch a creature you want to reanimate later, and draw.

Dark Prophecy seems great here, if we're sac'ing creatures. Triple black is pretty unruly here, though (which is why I found it in mono-black lol).

Dimir House Guard - SUPER loose. BUT, we can transmute for a boat load of stuff in this deck, and it's a sac outlet. Oh, and Alesha can reanimate it. Transmute, then Alesha trigger?

As for ensuring a full GY, perhaps Perpetual Timepiece to give you a jump start? Or something to that effect.

And for another spicy sac outlet, that also acts as a risky way to fill a grave - Undercity Informer. Mill yourself til you get a land for the cost of sacrificing a creature.

I gotchu fam. I love the strategy you have already of generally unplayable enchantments. Infernal Tribute and Faith Healer would be two other great sac outlets for you too.

1 CMC saccers: Blisterpod, Blood Pet I can't think of any 2 CMC saccers.

Sac outlets: Infernal Tribute, Claws of Gix, Phyrexian Altar.

I like the look of it. I've got a Meren build that I've kept tinkering with too. I've not heard of this "seven by nine" build, but I will look into it. Thanks for sharing!

Also, needs more Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Also also, cut that Blue Sun's Zenith bs. That card is garbage and I'll fight anyone who disagrees. You have so many better options in black: Grim Haruspex, Dark Prophecy, Infernal Tribute for god's sake, Necropotence if you're a wanker, ffs Mentor of the Meek does work in a deck shitting out 2/2 zombies. Also, get rid of Rhystic Study for essentially the same reason. Don't play staples just because they're staples. Find ways to get those effects that synergize with your decks' strategies. It'll make your decks feel and play more uniquely which is doubly rewarding in that it is satisfying to have created something special, and it's less predictable and interruptible because you keep your opponents' off balance. Everyone is expecting Rhystic Study, nobody is expecting Phyrexian Etchings, or to have it Donated to them after you used it for 10 turns...

bushido_man96 on Meren of Clan Combo

Here are some additions I'm looking to make:

  1. Infernal Tribute: how can I not? Sac a permanent to draw a card, for just 2 mana? I like it. I'll have plenty of stuff around to sac, all the while boosting the exp counters on Meren. She'll love it. Claws of Gix could do some similar work, too, gaining life. The last few times I've played, I've been mana flooded, so using those lands for draw or life gain could be a bonus.

  2. Savra, Queen of the Golgari: I'll be sacrificing stuff left and right, and paying 2 life to get an added bonus on something I'm already likely getting one LTB effect from is great value in black. And having the chance to gain a bit of life if its a green creature is nice, too. That, and she can join the other legends that are already in the deck. Seems wrong not to invite her to the party.

  3. Butcher of Malakir: Grave Pact on a stick, that Meren can bring back from the dead. Seems like a no-brainer. And if I can get one of my sacrifices to equal 3 creatures for each other player at the table, I think that will improve my chances of winning. Or becoming a target...ah, whatever.

I've also switched out Awakening Zone and brought in No Rest for the Wicked. I think its a good change, but in the times I've played, I haven't run across either one of them.

Thoughts? Suggestions on what to switch out? I am thinking of pulling Thran Quarry for Infernal Tribute, as I've been horribly mana flooded the last few times I've played. Sacrificing the land I don't need for card draw will help a lot. I could probably lose some of the other sac-fatties I'm running for the others. Please, any help is appreciated.
