Kessig Cagebreakers Discussion
1 day ago
I really like this deck. I am trying to build a similar budget deck here: Necrotic Splinterfright. I appreciate a budget deck that I can actually build instead of an expensive deck that I could only dream of having. I think the main thing that is different from my deck is the Kessig Cagebreakers. Seeing your deck makes me want to finish my deck. I know it's a budget deck, but any thoughts on adding some cheap dual lands that don't enter tapped?

Also thought of a much better ramp spell for this deck, Splendid Reclamation.
Have fun brewing, Sidisi is one of my favorites!

I picked this deck up. It is ridiculously fun to play, especially in multiplayer games. I am trying to develop this deck into a commander deck The Lichlord Commeth. I have to say that the Kessig Cagebreakers and Boneyard Wurm are both really handy in longer running games. Another thing that can work is using Varolz, the Scar-Striped and Corpsejack Menace to scavenge a Ghoultree or Boneyard Wurm to make any creature much larger for throwing at opponents.

I made a similar deck too with black. I tried to use the least amount of non-creautre cards in it. Dryad Arbor is great if you mill yourself because it will count as a creature in the yard too. Grisly Salvage was awesome as well. With Splinterfright, Boneyard Wurm and Liliana's Elite it becomes a giant growth combat trick (my deck only had around 22 non creature cards).
Your mono green deck is pretty cool as well. If you ever want a new version, try to look into black or blue.
I do like your inclusion of Splendid Reclamation in the Deck. Great idea to use the lands that end up in your graveyard. But I would try to find a creature that does something similar. Maybe Life from the Loam could be interesting for its dredge ability. Ramunap Excavator could be good as well as it counts as a creature if it ends up in the yard.
For trample I had Brawn.
As my finisher I used Kessig Cagebreakers. If it could survive one turn the enemy was dead.I have a long list of cards in my maybeboard in my deck that you might want to check out.
In my playgroup we usually play multiplayer and don't bother with sideboards but Witchbane Orb was good for some graveyard hate, as it makes target player exiles his or her graveyard impossible. But unfortunately it is not a creature. Sylvok Replica and Ainok Survivalist deal with artifacts that hate on your yard that can be responded to. Well enjoy your deck, I had a blast playing with the Splinterfright idea, so I think you will too!

Hello there as a fellow Meren enthusiast I feel I may have some advice for you. You certainly have a lot of creatures and while Momma Meren loves her some creatures I feel as though you have a few too many. Verdant Force is a prime example of a card of which there are better options in the form of enchantments like how you have From Beyond in your maybeboard. It is much better because it m=has more survivability and it costs less. Another card that plays off of that is Awakening Zone. Both create tokens that Meren can sac. A few other creatures that are in my experience under performers are Great Oak Guardian, Vulturous Zombie, Centaur Vinecrasher, Cloudthresher, Kessig Cagebreakers terastadonBlood Bairn, Apocalypse Demon, Sifter Wurm, Hooded Assassin. They have a high cmc and/ or don't really do all that much. A few options for replacements would be things like Dictate of Erebos, Black Market, Diabolic Tutor, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Reclamation Sage, Beseech the Queen, Animate Dead, Strionic Resonator, Spore Frog(a champion of a Meren deck is this frog let me tell you), Viscera Seer, Merciless Executioner, Fleshbag Marauder, Buried Alive, Eldritch Evolution, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Beast Within, Pawn of Ulamog, Sifter of Skulls, Evolutionary Leap, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Smothering Abomination, Living Death. They offer Meren much more support and help you get the most value out of what you got going on. Because when you have too many creatures the lack of support spells like the ones mentioned above can really slow you down and make you more vulnerable to board wipes and the like and limit your potential wincons. I would also heavily consider Dictate of Erebos over some of the curses because it can just do a lot of work for you. Another thing I noticed is you have Dredge listed in your tag list and I don't really see that much of a Dredge-y presence in the deck. Those are just some thoughts I have after playing both Budget and Much more Expensive versions of Meren for quite a while. But if you don't like what I have to say that's cool. I don't mean to offend at all. And ultimately the choices are your's anyways. So please tell me your thoughts on what I brought up!
Also here is my take on budget Meren that I mentioned earlier. Who Needs $200+ Dollar Decks???

I think you should work on focusing your deck a bit more, sultai dredge could be an interesting design. Firstly go down to 60 cards by cutting The Gitrog Monster it is a card that needs a very specific deck to work. From there you can focus more on dredge by going up to 4 Stinkweed Imp and 4 Dakmor Salvage. I would personally play 3 Splinterfright as it is just better than Sultai Ascendancy in fueling the grave for an easier to mange cost. Lotleth Troll is another card I think you should consider to accomplish the fueling of your graveyard. From there you should address what payoffs you have, Nemesis of Mortals is not enough; Ghoultree, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Bonehoard, and Kessig Cagebreakers are all great payoffs to the dredge plan. Also Tasigur, the Golden Fang will always be one or two mana in this deck which makes him a huge threat. Returning to Dakmor Salvage this syncs really well with Raven's Crime giving you more opportunities to dredge whilst also forcing your opponent to discard. My go to counter in sultai dredge would be Remand as dredge needs card draw to stay productive. To finish if you ever are looking to upgrade the deck in the future, Abrupt Decay is great removal in your colours; Liliana of the Veil is also a good choice sans budget. Also Life from the Loam is a must in dredge but you can get away with Satyr Wayfinder or Commune with the Gods.
