Lord of Extinction Discussion

This is looking pretty fun. I always enjoy graveyard shenanigans, especially in green. I'd suggest Lord of Extinction to really make use of Jarad's ability.

So I commented on this deck over 6 months ago and now I saw it on the feed so... Imma do it again. And Imma be more specific this time. Let's start with cuts.
Bane of Progress is not great. If all goes well you'll absolutely be hitting your own enchantments and artifacts.
Gray Merchant of Asphodel is not anything exceptional in this brew. Yeah his ETB is really strong but it draws a ton of hate and you don't seem to have many ways of subverting or withstanding that hate.
Greenwarden of Murasa is really mana-costly. 6 mana for an eternal witness effect? Pass.
It That Betrays is really bad. Better when you can reanimate it, but still unless your opponents are running aristocrats or you're forcing them to sac things (and yeah I know It does that but that's not enough), really bad. Oh yeah, and that thing I said with Gray Merchant about drawing hate? That.
Lord of Extinction's lack of trample makes him pretty meh.
Massacre Wurm is pretty meta-dependent. If your buddy runs weenies he's decent but if not...
Mycoloth is great, but the 5-mana slot is competitive.
Pathbreaker Ibex honestly doesn't seem that great. Most he's giving your guys is +5 unless you find Lord of Extinction.
Terastodon is really cool and all, but it does have one huge drawback... You can EITHER repeat the etb OR have it as a beater. And for 8 mana, repeating the etb is not enough.
Greater Good is great when you have larger creatures than this deck does. As it is it's just gonna make you discard a bunch of cards, probably.
Torment of Hailfire gives your opponents something you don't want them having: choice. They'll just sac a bunch of useless crap or discard lands. Without steps to limit their options, it's not a great card.
So I looked at your maybeboard and holy crap dude, you need to put some of those in. Night Incarnate, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Savra, Queen of the Golgari, Craterhoof Behemoth, I'm actually adding the first two to my brew now. Thanks for the ideas, sorry for stealing them.
Now Imma give you some card suggestions.
You forgot Fleshbag Marauder when you got the rest of the edict gang!
Thragtusk is pretty underrated in aristocrats.
As is Treasure Keeper, but that's less good in your deck since you have a really high mana curve.
Vindictive Lich gives you options!
Wall of Blossoms is good protection and a draw!
Hell's Caretaker is reanimation and a sac outlet.
Phyrexian Delver is also good reanimation.
Attrition is excellent removal.
Perilous Forays is an awesome card for this deck, I love it.
Quagmire Druid isn't the greatest ever, but it's enchantment removal.
Sadistic Hypnotist can play the long game, run opponents out of resources.
Thoughtpicker Witch can screw combo.
Vraska, Golgari Queen is an epic sac outlet and the ult is perfect for this deck.
Entomb is legendary.
Grim Flayer is great card advantage.
Fauna Shaman is like Entomb but better maybe?
Underrealm Lich is good card advantage.
Thank you for coming to my ted talk.

The new artwork on Vengeful Rebirth is nice; I see that Seb MicKinnon is taking inspiration from Rebecca Guay and/or Terese Nielsen in that image.
I really wish that I had waited to purchase a Lord of Extinction for my Mimeoplasm EDH deck until it was reprinted in this set, as doing so would have saved me a great amount of money, but I made that purchase months before this set was even announced, so there was no way that I could have known about it.
The reprint of Reviving Vapors is very nice, and I may purchase a copy if I ever build a white/blue EDH deck.
Most of the lands were great, but did the game really need another reprint of Terramorphic Expanse? Also, Rogue's Passage and Thespian's Stage were great, but those spaces could have been used for lands that need reprints much more severely, such as Reflecting Pool, Meteor Crater, or Vesuva.
In conclusion, I shall purchase some cards from this set, but not too many, and I certainly shall not purchase any boost packs or booster boxes. This set did have some nice cards, but I feel that it overall was slightly underwhelming for it being the final masters set for the foreseeable future, so I hope that whatever WotC has planned for reprint sets in the future is a worthwhile replacement.

You indeed have a decent shell going here, congrats! Just rattling off the top of my head, Lord of Extinction is usually a one-shot kill with Jarad, he’s just over $15 last I checked. Final Parting is also a great spell that only does good things in your deck. In lieu of Survival of the Fittest, you could run Fauna Shaman or Evolutionary Leap for considerably less cash. Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, and Meren of Clan Nel Toth are all great options with the synergies you have in place. Last but not least, if you added a Gravecrawler and a Rooftop Storm, you could create an infinitely large Grim-Grin, or kill everyone at once with your Altar of Dementia. Sorry that wasn’t organized very well, but I hope it helped. I would play the deck as is, so please enjoy yourself!

I don't really care, I just thought it kinda odd and was wondering what others think. Does he deserve at least High Power status?

Thank you everyone for the suggestions.
I hadn't considered Lure-like effects but looking at them now I will definitely try to fit a few in.
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.
