Lord of Extinction Discussion

Unlife on Similar to Siege Behemoth

Thank you everyone for the suggestions.

Predatory Focus and Outmaneuver were exactly what I was looking for, Master Warcraft as well.

I hadn't considered Lure-like effects but looking at them now I will definitely try to fit a few in.

I'm not sure yet what the top end of my curve will be, but it is probably going to be something big like a Lord of Extinction or an eldrazi, so Mage Slayer may have a spot.

I hadn't thought of Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor but it could be a nice way to build up an army in case of a 1 sided wipe.

In terms of which direction the build is going overall, I'm not entirely sure yet. I'm thinking just a general toolbox with a whole range of answers for everything. At the moment, my saskia deck is human tribal but I just don't have fun playing it, hence the rebuild.

Thanks again for all the suggestions, f you have any others feel free to pass them on

Alright, it seems the deck is a bit top heavy. Here are my suggestions. I have structured this rework of the deck to sac and get the mana out quick till you can have Meren stay on the board long enough or just hard cast the big things. You don't have to take my suggestions but I highly insist that this will make her work again.

Take out Nirkana Revenant for Satyr Wayfinder

Take out Hermit Druid for Ravenous Chupacabra

Take out Demon of Catastrophes for Viridian Zealot

Take out Razaketh, the Foulblooded for Viridian Emissary

Take out Plague Wind for Wall of Blossoms

Take out Doomgape for Bontu the Glorified

Take out Ruinous Path for Vindictive Lich

Take out Altar of Dementia for Dawntreader Elk

Take out Necropotence for Wood Elves

Take out Deadbridge Chant for Merciless Executioner

Take out The Gitrog Monster for Slum Reaper

Take out Yahenni, Undying Partisan for Diabolic Intent

Take out Voldaren Pariah  Flip for Damnation

Take out Lord of Extinction for Whiptongue Hydra

Take out Stitch Together for Swamp

Take out Vivid Grove for Forest

Take out Temple of the False God for Swamp

Take out Vivid Marsh for Swamp

Take out Vivid Grove for Forest

Take out Slippery Karst for Forest

Take out Polluted Mire for Forest

Take out Desecrated Tomb for Forest

Take out Golgari Guildgate for Forest

Thought Gorger could be a good top end threat, since Lord of Extinction would put it way over budget.

ERoss8 on Muldrotha or mimeoplasm?

1 month ago

Both are super powerful, and approach the same graveyard theme in two different ways. Either one is a great commander, so it’s more what style of graveyard deck you want.

The Mimeoplasm is more of a reanimator deck that relies a lot on the commander to close games out. This deck will feature a lot more creatures, usually ones like Lord of Extinction and Consuming Aberration coupled with Death's Shadow and Phyrexian Dreadnought to make your commander a one-shot kill.

Muldrotha, the Gravetide is a more value-driven deck. Instead of packing a bunch of huge creatures (although Consuming Aberration is still an amazing card for the archetype in general), it continually reuses many of its most important spells over and over again, as many of them sacrifice themselves. This is most prominent in 2-card non-infinite combos with Muldrotha herself. Being able to repeatedly wipe the board with Pernicious Deed and Nev’s Disk (not spelling that name), or destroying all your opponents’ lands with Strip Mine can easily get out of hand. The commander itself isn’t necessarily required for the deck to function, at least in the way The Mimeoplasm needs to be out, but it’s definitely better if she is. Muldrotha definitely is a better option for a “goodstuff” style deck that doesn’t have any direct theme.

Regardless of which you choose, a self-mill theme is a must, with Grisly Salvage and Satyr Wayfinder being good examples. There are also some cards that let you tutor any card into the graveyard, like Entomb or Buried Alive. Villainous Wealth is a super fun card that I suggest anyone playing sultai should run.

Hopefully this helps!

Mindcrank would add to the milling fun.

Lord of Extinction and Consuming Aberration would capitalize on all those cards in the graveyard, with the latter making things even worse for your opponents.

Once the milling gets going, Bloodchief Ascension can easily drive in the knife.

That should serve as a pretty solid win con.

Edit: Oh yeah, Mindcrank and Bloodchief Ascension can go infinite.

I have an LP Lord of Extinction invo and an LP Worship invo for trade. Primarily looking for / Spirits pieces or Binders.

chadjshonk on Jarad : No Rest for the Restless

2 months ago

Zachmarshall91 Out of ten? Maybe a 7.5 or 8 in a high-end casual meta? Compared to Tier One CEDH... no clue. It certainly isn't a fast deck, but it is competitive in a good four-player game. It plays for the mid-game as you use your utility creatures to ramp and play a little control while filling your graveyard. When you win with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord's ability, though, it seems to come out of nowhere. It doesn't take too many sacrifices to end the game.

This build is suited for my playgroup, where we want the games to go on at least 30 minutes and no one really goes infinite. But it is very good in that type of long game meta.

You can kind of draw the entire deck with Greater Good and Deathrender, setting up a great Living Death or I've been thinking about putting in a Poison-Tip Archer or Zulaport Cutthroat.

If you want to kick it up a notch I would drop some of the cute cards like Kessig Cagebreakers, World Shaper, and Bane of the Living for perhaps some Grave Pact effects, a Hermit Druid (with the appropriate adjustment of the mana base), some Protean Hulk combos (like Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Walking Ballista) and a Necrotic Ooze plan. I also cut Lord of Extinction because I won like 8 straight games with it but I would put that in the deck too if I was tuning it up.

I love the deck. It wins a lot. But it really depends on how insane your meta is. My deck will not be going off turn 4. It wants to win turn 15 or later. But there are ways to spike it up.

Thanks for the comment.

i run a meren deck and i love it got a few idea's for ya i'll start with creatures Blood Artist why not get some hit points in when you sac or die along with Bontu the Glorified, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Mycloth, Necroplasm helps controll, Nyx Weaver helps feed your grave yard which is your tool box, Rune-Scarred Demon, Tarmogoyf, Xathrid Demon, Brawn, Mortivore, Lord of Extinction, Grisly Salvage is good for feeding your graveyard, Putrefy, Dictate of Erebos, Deathreap Ritual, Small Pox, Pox,Westvale Abbey  Flip and i really think that these last 2 are key Mesmeric Orb, Smokestack. just some thoughts my meren functions really well and is around where your looking to be in your meta give it a look over Gravedigger
