Yeah. Cooles Deck. Wie erwähnt würde ich die Zombie Lords Weg lassen und dafür noch mehr "Kanonenfutter" mit reanimate Effekten reintun. Ansonsten hast du zuwenig Kreaturen um Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip 's Flip auszulösen. In der Deckliste kannst du noch neben Liliana, Heretical Healer CMDR schreiben dann wird sie auch als Commander gelistet. Ebnenso kannst Du unter "Featured Card" beim Editidieren zu unterst die Karte welche dein Deck repräsentieren soll reintun. Da bracuhst du aber dann nicht 1x oder so rein zu schreiben, auch nicht CMDR.

Weiter so :-D

The SDCC Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip still has the wrong art on the flip side.

Hey love seeing new meren decks out there. This is the deck that I have been using since meren has been out . I recommend taking a peak and hopefully there might be some fun stuff for you to find. If you have any questions on why I use or dont use certain cards feel free to ask.

So one thing Meren decks love to do is abuse ETB or LTB triggers and sac outlets. So I recommend any card that helps synergize with those type of effects or have those type of effects. A good ETB trigger is Terastodon, it blows up a lot of stuff and is easy to cast with cards like Natural Order or Pattern of Rebirth which I recommenced putting in your deck as well. Things that enjoy dying is nice like Mindslicer. This card is nice because it really hurts your opponenets but you enjoy having stuff in your graveyard so you benefit from having mind slicer be constantly sac.

Having a Demonic Tutor is nice but also any tutors that you can abuse will also be nice. For example Fierce Empath, Woodland Bellower, and Sidisi, Undead Vizier are really nice. A nice combo is fierce empath can tutor woodland for you and woodland can then get you any of your strong 3 drops, the reverse can happen as well. you can play woodland get fierce empath to enter and then you can get your hulk or combo piece out.

For planeswalker, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is an amazing one to have. I recommend cutting vraska but that is just because I personally think all the vraskas are bad for edh decks, especially meren edh decks.

If you want to be rude, Contamination is a nice card to lock out most decks with.

Also I recommend going down to 36 lands and then when you add more mana dork and ramp you should go below 36 lands. High Market is a good land cause its a 0 mana sac outlet for your deck.

If you want a strong and fair win, It That Betrays is really strong especially because it can steal other commanders.

I hope you end up having a lot of fun playing meren and I hope this advice helps out.

Contamination is awesome. Probably a little too backbreaking for but it’s got a spot on the maybeboard for sure.
As for alternate commanders I really don't know. This is my first deep dive into Commander. I considered Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip when building the deck originally. But Sheoldred, Whispering One was always a favorite of mine.

Right? My play-group fell apart and I stopped playing. I plan on starting up at an LGS soon, even though I hate most people that play lol. I figured I’d put an new coat of paint on before I get smeared.hows your deck favoring? I’ll check it out after this comment.

Thanks for the compliments though! Over time I realized Skullbriar isn’t worth protecting when golgari is so good at just bringing shit back. I figure the best method is keeping people’s hands empty, graveyards full, and a board full of lock out creatures. I’m writing up a new primer and adding more cards like Sheoldred soon.

A TON of cards are plummeting with the mystery boosters so I’m considering cards I previously hadn’t.

Hydras growth is the best card we’ve received in ages for this deck. I’m so excited for all the new EDH cards coming out this year. Maybe it’ll allow a more counter focused deck.

The discard theme is new but I figure it’s a much stronger protection than just beefing up with enchantments and artifacts: Necrogen Mists, Oppression, Bottomless Pit, Cunning Lethemancer, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, and Stronghold Rats

Nice deck, but I'd recommend only 3 copies of Urborg considering it's legendary, that way you don't too many dead cards in your hand. Also, Liliana Vess/Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is way better than Last Hope when it comes to 8-Rack decks. Oh, and seriously consider Rankle, Master of Pranks he's way underrated.

Nice meren deck. This is mine that I have been using since meren has came out as a card. If you have any questions on why I use or dont use a card let me know, I am always happy to help other meren players out.

Having a Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip and Reanimate is nice for backup reanimation cards. Meren does typically get targeted so you want your 99 to be really tight and well. Then Meren is just the nice gravy engine that takes the deck from 100% to 1000%. So having similar effects of Meren is nice.

Sac outlets are very important for meren cause you want your exp counters to be as high as possible. It also synergizes well with merens ability. Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar are nice ones to use cause they can generate mana. Carrion Feeder is a good one drop sac outlet that can sac itself. Protip: you mainly want creatures that can sac themselves and others vs just others. The exception to the rule is creatures with really strong abilities like Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Diabolic Intent is very nice because it is a tutor and a sac ability combined together.

Because meren ability revolves around bringing the dead back to life, you want creatures that can either kill themselves, have strong etb triggers, or like to die so you abuse meren ability and get a lot of value. Plaguecrafter, Fleshbag Marauder, and Merciless Executioner are some creatures that a really solid etb trigger. I recommend at least running Plaguecrafter. Terastodon has a very nice etb trigger, it also synergizes well with natural order. Getting a turn 3 or turn 4 terastodon and targeting 3 lands is a nice way to get somebody to scoop. Mindslicer is a wonderful creature in meren decks, you sac it get an exp counter, make everybody top deck, and you fill up your graveyard. Everybody is suffering except you.

You are playing black and green so you have access to some really strong tutors. Pattern of Rebirth is a really good one because it just grabs any creature. Woodland Bellower is nice because it puts the tutor creature onto the battlefield, Fierce Empath is a nice tutor to grab any of your big creatures. Whats nice is both these cards synergize with each other so you can cast woodland bellower, tutor fierce empath and then grab another big creature Or do the inverse and you can do fierce empath to grab woodland so then woodland can get you a useful small creature. What is also nice is both of these are creature cards so you can abuse them with meren ability and keep tutoring cards each turn.

Some straight upgrades. Instead of Wall of Roots use Devoted Druid. Same mana cost but you can use devoted druid ability more then once per turn, plus when it dies you get an exp counter. Instead of Nyx Weaver use Altar of Dementia, same mana cost but easier to cast cause colorless, its a sac outlet so it synergizes with the deck better. It also has a higher roof which means you can mill yourself much more then 2 per turn. Also its ability if flexible and you have the option to mill other people but that isnt as strong as just milling yourself. Instead of Glowspore Shaman try Entomb or Buried Alive, it allows you to search your deck and pick what card you want to put in your graveyard. What is also nice is entomb is at instant speed.

I hope this helps a lot.
