I haven't even got the cards yet! I ordered them this last Saturday so I hope they will all arrive this week! Play testing gets wild and crazy with creatures and draw before Animar gets super huge because I'm not going for infinite combos so heavily- but we'll see how it plays out.

Oh yeah- I have Primal Surge saved to add in the future but Lurking Predators is savage! I'll definitely be adding that one- Cloudstone Curio and several other creatures are 'enter the battlefield' and not necessarily effects on casting so lots would still trigger. That's an awesome card- thanks for the heads up!

also two fun cards you might consider.. Primal Surge and Lurking Predators. Although they do not "cast" your creatures and won't trigger your commander for that reason, they still put out a lot of board presence!

can you explain why Lord of Extinction is only good with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord? I feel like Lord of extinction is a better version of jarrad. I agree with you on the tutors after some play testing. I'm still holding onto to keeping Lurking Predators as well.

Behold the Beyond. Its way too much mana for tutoring what? you dont have a 3 card (or less) win con you want to be dropping on separate turns. Lord of Extinction is only really good with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord which you dont have in the deck. i love Lurking Predators but you dont have enough big "this will win the game like, now" creatures to benefit from it. Thats more of a mayael card. Not sure your map is worth keeping, with the speed you can run through the deck. not a big fan of Increasing Ambition just due to targetted graveyard hate. I would much rather you get a creature back like sakura tribe-elder or e-wit than a flashback tutor. Thats all i really see for now, i would have to playtest the deck to find what else might be worth cutting. I have my own meren deck as well, Meren does the stuffs if you want to look at a little more control-built deck

Thanks for the input I really like Lurking Predators. I will test this out. Genesis Wave was in this deck but every time I got a chance to play in it seemed like it flopped. I believe I changed it out with more card draw. Also Akroma's Memorial was amazing in this deck Just think of anything with annihilator having all of those key words added to them. It was stupid I took it out just because it makes me the biggest target but I might add it back in.

Thank you again for the update.

You can do some really disgusting things in this deck by including a Genesis Wave and Akroma's Memorial. Even without drawing your entire deck with infinite mana, you only have 8 misses in the deck so you can easily get a ton of value off of the former, while the latter just makes your creatures so much better on its own. Together though, you can outright win by drawing most of your deck and swinging at everybody with your giant creatures.

And in the same vein, 36 creatures is a pretty good number for Lurking Predators to be viable for the deck, with one-to-three odds of ripping out a big fatty from the top of your deck.

Hi there.. our deck are allot different, i see you use some land tutors so i might suggest you could also add Crop Rotation because you dont have to choose a basic land but any land you want..

there are many different ways to go with a deck like this.

The base tactic always is to get the best sliver out asap en win the game.

But in the case that it doesnt work its best to have backup plan like Patriarch's Bidding or Living Death. so when your slivers end up in the graveyard you can get them back.

you might read in my discription that for axample Patriarch's Bidding + Tunnel Vision is a great way to go.

Winged Sliver is a must have in the mainbord.If you want to play Descendants' Path you should play it in combo with Sensei's Divining Top or Mirri's Guile for example, or you might end up putting cards you need on the bottom.Or you could replace it with Lurking Predators so you ''may'' put them on the bottem.

There are also af few instants an sorcery's i would replace like Muddle the Mixture and Brainstorm add Rhystic Study instead..

I dont know if you are on a budget, but this is a deck you should definitely should continue to build on.. yeah... SLivers are king.You could go more controll or destruction or what have you..

My deck also isn't finnished yet. i want to improve the mana base like with more fetch.I still have allot more suggestions for you but its a matter of taste how you like to play your deck..I'll follow the progress of this deck if you dont mind and if you got some suggestions for me dont be shy:)
