Mer-Ek Nightblade Discussion

Superphreak on Atraxa on Fleek

Off the top of my head, some additions worth considering:

Glissa, the Traitor (~$2) Kill one of their creatures, bring back Hangarback Walker

Ivorytusk Fortress (<$1) Untap all your dudes during all untap phases, not just yours. And since creature abilities are instants unless stated otherwise...

Corpsejack Menace (<$1) Doubles all your Proliferate effects for +1/+1 counters, stacks with Panharmonicon's effect, so when Master Biomancer is out, your tokens come out with 4 +1/+1 counters on them. And if you have Doubling Season...

Mer-Ek Nightblade (<$1) Deathtouch for those whacky tokens! Remember Glissa, the Traitor?

Contagion Clasp (<$1) Another, cheaper, Contagion Engine

Tuskguard Captain and Mer-Ek Nightblade will make sure your creatures get through. Death's Presence is good redundancy. Fertilid, Viridian Joiner, and Gyre Sage for ramp. Shape the Sands, Tower Defense, and Assault Formation for toughness boosting. Not budget but Vigor.

Maybe add Winding Constrictor for extra counters? Also, some of the outlast creatures have fancy +1/+1 relevant addons- like Abzan Falconer, Ainok Bond-Kin, Abzan Battle Priest, Longshot Squad, Mer-Ek Nightblade, and Tuskguard Captain.

Ah, and the Outlasters from Khans of Tarkir can be a nice inclusion (although not a must) for the deck since some of then give bonus to creatures with +1/+1 counters (that are, obviously, the focus of the deck)

I think that the better one is Abzan Falconer, but there's also Abzan Battle Priest, Ainok Bond-Kin, Mer-Ek Nightblade and Tuskguard Captain. it's just a matter of choosing which ones fit into your playstyle.

I made a counter deck and was planning to turn it into a commander deck with white (It currently is green/blue/black), and I have some card suggestions that might be helpful. Crowned Ceratok, Sapphire Drake, and Mer-Ek Nightblade can really help a +1/+1 deck. Oran-Rief, the Vastwood can help with +1/+1 counters, and Ainok Guide can give you some options when it is cast. Triskelion can destroy your enemies or their creatures. Something you might want to think about is having a few more cards to prevent board wipes, just some counter target spell, or instant spell, or anything like that. Also, if you want to have basically another Forgotten Ancient, Managorger Hydra is very important. Endless One can be used at any point in a game, and be massive if, for example, Corpsejack Menace is out.

I could go on, but what you really should do is look at my deck here: Mutation Station

Oh, also Experiment Kraj is really good (It can act as another Corpsejack Menace)

looks like Ajani's Pridemate is the bread and butter of the deck. These cards might compliment him and the life gain deck, Particularly the Battle Priest

Abzan Battle Priest

Abzan Falconer

Ainok Bond-Kin

You may want to splash some Abzan colors for other outlast effects such as Mer-Ek Nightblade

If you are looking to swing creatures with counters on them, then Abzan Falconer, Abzan Battle Priest, and Mer-Ek Nightblade could be useful.

I have actually been looking at those types of cards, and I think they might run. Thanks for the suggestion!
