Merciless Executioner Discussion

MTGApprentice2016 on Size doesn't matter, it's how you abuse it~ Alesha

4 days ago

This seems like a fun deck to run. I'm personally a fan of reanimator decks in EDH. I've never seen this commander do well though sadly. My play group runs a lot of grave hate. The suggestions that I have for you are Fleshbag Marauder and/or Merciless Executioner as well as Impact Tremors. You're running a lot of ETB effects or death effects. With your Commander's ability, you might as well abuse them to the max. I've personally won games by having either Fleshbag or Merciless on the table and just recurring it. Blade of Selves attached to one is also amusing. Also, why aren't you running Gray Merchant of Asphodel? That seems like it would be close to an auto-includ for this deck.

Consider expanding on the +1/+1 counter theme that Kresh is using? Cards that give your creatures bonuses for having counters:

Giving Kresh trample seems very good because otherwise he can just be chump blocked constantly. Giving him trample with spells is really a one shot deal where as using some creatures that can give him trample can last longer.

As far as the sacfrice theme with Kresh you can also expand on it using more creatures that give you value before they die and they die without needing to use other cards:

These creatures are removal spells who also die by themselves.

Creatures with evoke seems good with the Kresh because you get value from them using their low evoke cost and then they die by themselves. Creatures who are evoked do enter the battlefield and then they die. They work with abilities that want creatures to die such as Kresh. Brairhorn for example is a nice aggro evoke creature that Kresh can really benefit from.

Creatures with exploit such as Sidisi lets you sac a creature even itself and get value.

Good luck with your deck.

Hi!

Welcome on T/O! A very helpfull community with many interesting resources.

I checked your list and I came up with these suggestions:

My personal favorite deck I am playing these days is this deck. It's very strong and can punish people really hard. But this is also a competitive build, not suited for each meta. Feel free to give it a visit and I always appreciate an upvote :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise on any of your decks, then you can always summon me or post on my wall for help.

Cheers,

PJ

Springfluter on Queen Liliana's Stax Gambit

Das sind so die Sachen, die mir spontan zu Lili einfallen. Alles sehr discardlastig, bin mir nicht sicher wie viel man ohne Probleme spielen kann. Generell finde ich, dass du wenig draw hast, aber auch das mag funktionieren, kannst dich ja fix in ne Potence tutoren.

An sich gefaellt mir die Geschichte schon sehr gut, ich glaube es sind nur persoenliche Abneigungen die mich manche Karten herausnehmen lassen wuerden.
