It That Betrays Discussion

danssquad on Marchesa the Undying

I would recommend Sneak Attack

I run it in my Marchesa deck and it's amazing. A little pricey but if you have it out along with Marchesa, Sneak Attack your creatures in for 1 mana, swing at the player with the highest life total and boom. You just paid 1 mana for your Sheoldred.

Would also recommend It That Betrays Especially with Sneak Attack that card is mean

Thank you Autumnstar for your advices! I definitely would add It That Betrays on this deck, looks so fun to play, about Deathbringer Thoctar and other nice creatures I have thinked at them, justt there isn't more place on this deck for them, all creatures I put on it are just so good and I like them xD Endless Ranks of the Dead just looks so fun on here

@DrValium I really like the idea of Time Stop. The deck lacks the card advantage to be a real control deck so I generally use most of my counterspells to protect wipes, which this would be even more reliable at. I'll try it out. I ran It That Betrays and while it's strong I found that it wasn't worth the slot. Generally, more than 1 bomb in my hand just goes wasted, so I want to keep the number of bombs in the deck low. It That Betrays annihilates less than the other annihilators available and lacks any other evasion or board presence. Stealing permanents is great but it's win-more because you're (hopefully) dropping him after a wipe anyway. I think that in a very large multiplayer playgroup, more bombs would be better and It That Betrays would be a good addition because it builds momentum after a wipe, but I've just found it less reliable than other options in situations where one bomb is enough to finish the game.

Hello, have you thought about Time Stop as a card to help protect your stuff?

Also consider It That Betrays

Thank you pjeseb and Reverie42 great suggestions. So as for the things that could work in other decks but I don't feel the theme of mine goes towards is taking stuff back into my hand. I almost always have something to play due to draw cards. Also big creatures that benefit from graveyards don't really have a place because I never finish people with big creatures. I took out Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord due to this fact and the fact that it costs to sacrifice a creature. Viscera Seer will be staying cause it is such a simple and free sac outlet that does something pretty good for a one drop. I have thought about taking out Stronghold Assassin and Custodi Lich though which I could replace with Eternal Witness and Fauna Shaman those are great!!! And as for It That Betrays the only other big creatures I will be adding is Protean Hulk. Minister of Pain I could take out. But Virulent Plague has saved me multiple times so that is a keeper. Fume Spitter can take out small commanders easy but is also an option to replace with Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip thanks for the suggestions! And upvotes are always appreciated!

A few options that you might consider, in mostly decreasing order of how good I think they're likely to be:

  • Eternal Witness is a great card in Meren. Fetches whatever you need and you're always happy to sac it.
  • Evolutionary Leap lets you sacrifice without inate card disadvantage
  • Smothering Abomination fills a similar role to Evo Leap, but on a pretty good flying body.
  • Hermit Druid may be better than Silverglade Pathfinder since it can fill your graveyard. It doesn't ramp, but it has a very low opportunity cost.
  • Thragtusk gives value going in and out, and the extra token to chump/sac is pretty nice.
  • Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip flips easily and can help empty your opponents' hands
  • It That Betrays is super expensive and maybe kind of impractical, but it can also just win on its own. Also steals fetchlands, which is nice.

You could likely make room by removing some ETB sac effects or sac effects that don't provide card advantage (Viscera Seer, Stronghold Assassin, Slum Reaper, etc). Winding Constrictor is likely cuttable (I have to imagine you get enough XP to do what you need without it). Custodi Lich is probably just less efficient than other stuff at 5 mana.

This is definitely the most all-in Meren deck I've seen in terms of creature count, though. Pretty cool list, thanks for posting.

Grozoth seems like a very very weird choice, considering you want your suspend spells to have a large board impact and it doesn't even cast the CMC 9 spell. You want to be playing spells to the extent of Enter the Infinite, It That Betrays or even extra turns spells like Temporal Trespass. Playing Jhoira will make you a considerable target at the table, so you want to make sure the few times you get to use her pay off. There's also Jhoira's Timebug which is specifically made for this deck as well as multiple other suspend interactions. You do also badly need more ramp in a multiplayer EDH format, I suggest going down 3-4 Lands and including a variety of manarocks.

Another change:
Duplicant > Noxious Gearhulk I would like to have them both but this way I have another way to heal plus more chances that I will be able to attack with Gearhulk.

Wish I had place for some eldarazi creatures, but atm I have no clue how to put them in.
This are the one I thought off including:
Emrakul, the Promised End,Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger,It That Betrays,Pathrazer of Ulamog,Void Winnower.
