Lord of Extinction is kinda obligatory with Jarad. It usually reads 8 mana: win the game. It isn't the cheapest card but it tends to kill your opponents right away.

Lord of Extinction might be good if you have to switch to damage.

Also, since you seem to have a reanimator sub theme I would suggest Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur as he gives you tremendous card advantage while not letting your opponents keep anything in their hands.

Also Mortivore.

The best way to not crumble to gravehate is to not rely heavily on the graveyard, so for Jarad this mean don't let your creatures sit in the graveyard too long before trying to recur them, or good ramp so you can cast big fatties naturally. Another way to deal with the gravehate is to run enough good grave-filling cards that even if your 'yard gets exiled you can bounce back with a couple good activation's of Hermit Druid or Nyx Weaver. And finally don't put your eggs too heavily into the Lord of Extinction basket, this means that if your biggest bomb gets exiled you have numerous backup plans/creatures.

I just converted my Athreos, God of Passage edh deck recently so that I could then separately make both a Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Oloro, Ageless Ascetic deck. I have to say even already that Im really liking Meren even though its not 100% done its more like 75% towards what I consider complete.

I also have a friend who plays mimeoplasm and it certainly can get pretty scary but honestly I feel his deck can more so get shut down by Counterspells than mine. I honestly prefer meren myself over a voltron like strategy as I think the deck is more resilient and its cards are more synergistic with each other. My friend either tries to win through self mill and Laboratory Maniac or commander damage/infect damage from usually Mimeoplasm, Lord of Extinction, Blighted Agent, and other things. I dont think you could go wrong with either, but I myself would if choosing here again go for meren.

Agree with the above except I think Lim-Dul's can stay and I'd take out another land instead. Ghalta, Sultai Charm, and Journey to Eternity I think are also mediocre but I assume you're testing them out. Lord of Extinction and Sutured Ghoul are the other big fatties which you could look at.

Considered Boneyard Wurm or other graveyard related power/toughness creatures? Just running Lord of Extinction is limiting when there are a bunch out there. Stuff like Ghoultree.

Oh I know of wall of blood and it is kept out on purpose. My meta is strictly 75% and because of this I stray away from two card combos that can win from an empty board state. I keep in Lord of Extinction because if I ramp it out turn 4 and sac it turn 5 it will do MAYBE 5 damage? Hardly game winning, but if I strategically board wipe and build up graveyards for many many turns, then it is earned.
