Mer-Ek Nightblade Discussion

JacoBean_ofthe99 on Ghave

Try to add at least 3 lands. My thoughts on cuts are Juniper Order Ranger, Ivy Lane Denizen, Mer-Ek Nightblade, Sigil Captain, Thallid Shell-Dweller, Sporoloth Ancient. not all of them, but most. some are redundant with each other or better spells in the deck. I think the ancient isn't gonna be as helpful as it could be because there are only like 4-5 cards that get spore counters, in a 99 card deck. I would add Cultivate or a Solemn Simulacrum over Urban Burgeoning and Wild Growth and some more graveyard recursion. Phyrexian Reclamation is great, and Victimize and Dread Return would be good in there. also, think of more card draw too. Etched Oracle and Mindless Automaton would be good. some good budget lands are Selesnya Sanctuary, Orzhov Basilica, Golgari Rot Farm

Way too many on-ofs in my opinion. There definitely are some cards you should consider:

Bramblewood Paragon

Abzan Falconer

Mer-Ek Nightblade

All of these have great synergy with counters. There are other, more obvious additions, but those you can find yourself ;)

Mer-Ek Nightblade seems interesting, and I would go with General's Kabuto but it would give him shroud. This deck is built around using spells (enchantments, equipments, etc) on Skullbriar, the Walking Grave to boast him up fast and kill with commander damage (I usually kill on turn 4-6) before my opponent can build up enough to stop him.

True that's why I took it out of my Jarad deck, and Rancor will work just as fine.

Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's Altar should be considered as well.

Others to look at -- Mer-Ek Nightblade and have you looked into any of the cards that came out with the new Explorer mechanic? Could help as well.

Hi! Here are some inexpensive cards to improve the pre-con!

For the mana base, check out this website. That'll give you all the options in your colors. It'll also tell you the artifact and ramp options! Remember, 37 lands, 10 ramp, 47 mana sources total.

Token Producers: Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Legion's Landing  Flip(becomes a land, hard to remove!)

Buffing Our Army: Indulgent Aristocrat(small cost for effect), Drana, Liberator of Malakir(+1/+1 counter theme, Vampire Nocturnus(only if you find yourself heavy in black), Guul Draz Overseer(again, heavy in black. run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth), Necropolis Regent(+1/+1 theme), Urge to Feed(removal, +1/+1, Eldrazi Monument(VERY important), Vanquisher's Banner(card draw!), Stensia Masquerade(+1/+1 counters), Cathars' Crusade(Important, +1/+1 counters), In the Web of War, True Conviction, Ogre Battledriver, the outlast lords Abzan Falconer / Mer-Ek Nightblade / Abzan Battle Priest, which synergize with the +1/+1 counter theme again, Elenda, the Dusk Rose(+1/+1 counter theme)

Vampire Drain: Sanctum Seeker, Bishop of the Bloodstained

Protection: Glory, Boros Charm, Rootborn Defenses, Eldrazi Monument... your tokens are the most important part of your strategy. Protect them!

ThinkJank on Golgari, wth is a death priest, anyway?

Smothering Abomination is a good source of card advantage that's super cheap to pick up. I'd recommend substituting it for Sanguine Bond, since I'm not seeing much life gain to capitalize on. Also, your curve is a little heavy on four- and five- mana cards. You may want to consider trimming a few of the less impactful cards like Trigon of Infestation, Overwhelming Stampede, and Mer-Ek Nightblade in favor of more cheap ramp like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, and Golgari Signet.

On top of a few cards already mentioned, especially Phyrexian Arena, I highly recommend Abzan Falconer, Abzan Battle Priest, and Mer-Ek Nightblade. They are insanely good with the counters, especially the Nightblade and Falconer.

I'd also re-add the removed card draw.
