Melira, Sylvok Outcast Discussion
3 days ago
So I have a question: How well does this deck interact with +1/+1 counters being placed on creatures? Or having -1/-1 counters removed before the creatures die?
Also, a lists of cards that could be useful (unknown if you already knew about these or play tested them)(would still want to hear your thoughts on them within a deck):
Plaguemaw Beast (sac-a-snake, make-a-nest)
Poison-Tip Archer (redundant win-con is redundant)
Rishkar, Peema Renegade (any counter counts)
Quillspike (known combo piece)
Flourishing Defenses (see "aggro?")
Blight Sickle (once again, aggro?)
Hex Parasite (political tool)

Shrazik, thanks for your in depth response! I took your advice on Melira, Sylvok Outcast, as I wasn't too fond of her to begin with. I basically included her as a cheaper way to go off with Woodfall Primus(also in an early draft of the deck I thought she worked with Devoted Druid :c ) , but after some play-testing it doesn't seem like it'll be too much of an issue. I originally took out Triskelion as well in favor of Walking Ballista, but running both wont hurt. Cauldron of Souls seems a little too situational, though super satisfying if I were to go off with it. Thanks for your input!

Really nice! I like Meren decks, but I will warn you now, anybody that has played against a Meren of Clan Nel Toth before is not gonna let you lay low for very long if at all. She's incredibly powerful at all stages of the game and she's built up a widely known reputation as the queen of sacrifice. She draws a lot of hate when she hits play and playing with the intention of laying low gets drastically reduced because of that. Of course this all depends on who you play with, just letting you know as someone who has both played with and played against Meren.
Overall your deck is pretty solid. However, I personally would swap out Melira, Sylvok Outcast for something like Triskelion. With Triskelion you get infinite damage Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. Melira, as she stands now, is a little too situational for my taste with only one persist creature. She also turns off devoted druid.
However, if you are looking to get more benefit out of her, I would consider looking into Cauldron of Souls. It'll allow you to take full advantage of Melira's ability as well as combo with Mikaeus for a practically unkillable army.

Here’s a few card ideas to bounce around your head:
- Melira, Sylvok Outcast makes for amazing synergy with the next few cards
- Glen Elendra Archmage=infinite Negate to protect your boardstate or for politicking reasons protect another opponents boardstate.
- Aerie Ouphes destroy all opponents flying critters
- Grazing Kelpie get all your dead critters back in your library just to tutor for them again.
- River Kelpie to draw as many cards as you want.
- Woodfall Primus plus a sac outlet to destroy anything but creatures

So, looking at your meta, I see that your opponents use alot of decks known for speed. With that in mind, and since I'm not 100% sure what issues specifically you're having Im gonna focus on suggestions to make your deck faster, and I'm going to try to avoid super expensive cards since I'm not sure how much you're looking to spend.
First thing I'd do is to swap Plague Wind out. If you really want a 9 mana board wipe, In Garruk's Wake is strictly better, but honestly I don't think I'd even go for that. Cyclonic Rift seems like the best bet since you definitely need to hang on to your creatures, so I do like the use of one sided wipes, but with edgar's ability to flood the board you may want to add some universal wipes like Wrath of God too.
I would probably add Lotus Cobra here. Granted since you don't have fetches he isn't at his best, but he makes each land effectively produce 2 mana the turn they come in, one of which also fixes any color shortages you have. That makes atraxa's 4 very specific mana cost easier, and gets her out faster. And with your deck, it looks like you need a fast atraxa.
Cryptolith Rite is sort of a second rishkar for you, which also helps get atraxa sooner.
Champion of Lambholt has the potential to be an absolute powerhouse in this deck.
Now on to more meta-specific suggestions. Meren and Gitrog are both very graveyard reliant decks, so grave hate will give you an edge. Rest in Peace, Relic of Progenitus, and Bojuka Bog should be enough. To deal with Skithryx, add Melira, Sylvok Outcast then proliferate your opponents poison counters for the win. Ichor Rats is probably a good add too since it gives the Skithryx player a poison counter and puts all of your opponents on a very fast clock. If Edgar is a problem, add pillow fort cards like Propaganda or Ghostly Prison. The vampires are only scary en masse, and even one pillow fort effect is enough to keep him from sending everything your way.

Because you run 4 Chords, that makes your sideboard very versatile. The 4 CoCos help as well. Good sideboard choices are Melira, Sylvok Outcast for infect, Phyrexian Revoker, and Viscera Seer for living end. Scavenging Ooze is also a good card against graveyard decks generally. You really only need 1 of these because of your Chords and CoCos. Damping Sphere is a great sideboard card as well, but you need several of it to ensure you actually draw it. I personally like to have a single copy of Westvale Abbey Flip because it can be useful. Your mainboard is pretty good, which is why I've been making suggestions for your sideboard. I'd suggest getting rid of some of your out-of-place singles in favor of completing your playsets, which is where the power of the deck really comes from.
