Maralen of the Mornsong Discussion

I tried this deck a few times and I really don't like Maralen of the Mornsong. What typically happens is: you opponent(s) tutor, then destroy/remove Maralen. Her ability hardly ever gets back to you.

If you're going to run Maralen of the Mornsong as your commander, then I don't see why you'd want to keep all of your draw spells and enchantments in there. You can't draw the cards, either. You need to run Necropotence, because its effect isn't a draw, so you get the cards. Scroll Rack would be another good addition. You may also want to consider creatures like Hypnotic Specter and Abyssal Specter.

griffstick, that's just mean. Love it. Maralen of the Mornsong doesn't scream combo deck at all, does it?

Here's what I suggest change your CMDR to Maralen of the Mornsong and get her out turn one with dark ritual and tutor for Dark Deal this is brutal because players will have no hands. Can't draw cards with your CMDR and they will hate you cause they have to search for lands first before anything else

Cool deck. Only card that is a lot worse than it looks is... Dash Hopes. Somehow it's a card that inspires ideas of countering key pieces of combos, and bleeding an opposing aggro deck dry. And somehow, it never works like that - the combo player shrugs, pays 5 life, and shoots of his combo. The midrange/control player says: "mmm.... okay", and accepts a 1-for-1, which probably was what he went for in the first place. You never get the deal on Dash Hopes that's best for you. And against Maralen of the Mornsong, any way of paying 5 life to get rid of him, is quite ok (as he is bleeding you for 3 pr turn anyway). I don't know what to replace it with... you can't draw cards of Shadow of Doubt (I considered that one)... Collective Brutality, perhaps? A bit of lifegain isn't bad with maralen in play, discard is always good, and so on.


Why only 3 Aven Mindcensor? Maralen is a pretty risky card without limiting your opponents search options, I guess...

Shattered Dreams in the sideboard... why wouldn't Duress or a 4th Thoughtseize be better? They can target more different types of cards, so you'll have the possibility of using them in more match-ups.

speaking of sideboard: Are there any situations, where you'd board Leonin Arbiter in, rather than have another Aven Mindcensor (ok, any scenario involving Meddling Mage, but how often does that happen?)?

And what does Ajani Vengeant do, that is so important you splash an entire color for him?

Epic deck though. Maybe 4 Time of Need to get the combo with Maralen of the Mornsong and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled.

Try to play some Mana Rocks to speed things up for a turn 4 kill. Best Options are Jeweled Amulet, Everflowing Chalice and Lotus Petal but I am also playing some CMC 2 ones as they don't hurt too much. For cashing in Maralen for even more mana to go off I recommend Culling the Weak.
To get another shot if things go wrong Elixir of Immortality is a good inclusion.
Optimal Line:
Turn 1: Swamp
Turn 2: Swamp + Any Manarock
Turn 3: Swamp + Maralen of the Mornsong and pray she survives
Turn 4: Swamp + search Ad Nauseam draw your deck use Lotus Petal to kick off Culling the Weak or Dark Ritual (I run both as I personally go for Skirge Familiar + Torment of Hailfire as my finisher). Now just kill everyone with the Dark Sphere + Sickening Dreams combo

Nice addition: In order to protect my Maralen I sometimes go one turn later and use Supernatural Stamina to back her up against kill-spells
