Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Legendary Creature — Human Shaman

Whenever another creature you control dies, you get an experience counter.

At the beginning of your end step, choose target creature card in your graveyard. If that card's converted mana cost is less than or equal to the number of experience counters you have, return it to the battlefield. Otherwise, put it into your hand.

Interesting idea on how to use Meren of Clan Nel Toth

A couple suggestions would be to cut Eldritch Evolution for Evolutionary Leap for keeping a sac outlet open on your board.

Izoni, Thousand-Eyed is another great outlet that nets you card draw/lifegain for but also can help you go wide with her Insect token, or sac them out with Black Market on the field for some massive mana gain!

Reanimate , Recollect , and Diabolic Tutor are all cards I also suggest just as good upgrade cards in general.

Hope this helps! If you need some more ideas be sure to check out my Meren Build deck!

I'd say that golgari sacrifice decks are pretty much similar in some way. I run a Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck which is a bit more about reanimation and automill, but still pretty similar to what you would run in yours. I guess you could try and swap out commanders if you have them in your deck (you should). Otherwise, tackling the problem could be done in many ways.

I'd say some good old reanimation effects to bring your commander back from the graveyard would go a long way: Animate Dead , Necromancy , Dance of the Dead , Ever After , Beacon of Unrest .

Another good strategy would be to ramp lands like crazy, even if a little less efficient: recur and sac many times Viridian Emissary , Solemn Simulacrum , Dawntreader Elk and similar.

One last way would be to protect Savra from removal: Blessing of Leeches , Lightning Greaves and such.

Struyk Thanks bud! Actually got a couple out. Beast Within , Thran Dynamo , Sire of Stagnation (Thank you so much for pointing out it's colorless xD), Hadana's Climb  Flip, Journey to Eternity  Flip are out. Actually decided to keep Kruphix, God of Horizons , Sphinx's Revelation and Detention Sphere for the moment but probably i'll get them out too once I found something else to put.

I'll keep Mirari's Wake . Doubling my mana, in 5 color, help me so much! I don't get mana screwed if I play 2-3 spells in the same turn with this (as it can happens without]. Rakdos Charm is a personnal choice I guess. There's a lot of token deck in my playgroup, and it can one shot a player easily for 2 mana, which is good imo and it stop reanimate too! (YAY, RIP The Mimeoplasm and Meren of Clan Nel Toth ) Thought Vessel seems good to me too. Having a second Reliquary Tower is not bad I think.

I checked your deck and took a couple cards from you :) ( Despark , Ionize , Angrath's Rampage , Time Wipe and Knight of Autumn )

I'll stay tuned to your future upgrades :)

Aura Shards is a card that works great with Karador. The amount of triggered lifegain and opponent's losing life seems to warrant Defiant Bloodlord , Sanguine Bond , Exquisite Blood and Wound Reflection . The middle two enchantments also give you an infinite combo win although if your play group doesn't like that sort of thing then you may need to choose only one of them. There are cards like Kokusho, the Evening Star that you can recur for their effect, sacrifice outlets ( Vampiric Rites is a cheap one) and also core cards for decks with recursion such as Sakura-Tribe Elder . Although she's a commander herself you could consider including Meren of Clan Nel Toth for even more recursion. I tried to base these suggestions on enhancing things your deck is already doing or providing another potential direction like using sac outlets to get the best of out of cards like Kokusho and recurring them.

Hey Zarrox. Muldrotha is an amazing commander and there are so many directions you can take with her. You can have recurring value over and over again, you can go for a lands matter build, or a reanimator deck. But you want to focus on one. I notice you have cards like Ramunap Excavator and The Gitrog Monster . These cards should be in a deck that is a lands matter build and that doesn't really seem like your deck. Muldrotha isn't really the best lands matter commander but you can still go that route and the deck will be decent. I would say recurring value over and over with her is the best option.

I think Ravenous Chupacabra is pretty underwhelming. There are much better 4 drops you want to Birthing Pod into like Meren of Clan Nel Toth . I playtested with Doom Whisperer and I found it pretty awful. Paying 2 life to put 2 cards into your graveyard is not very good and the effect is very redundant. One more thing about Muldrotha is you want to reduce the number of instants/sorceries as much as possible. Because you can play your permanents from your graveyard, you want permanents that affect the board, not spells. I know it is tempting to play countermagic because you are in blue but Muldrotha isn't really the commander for that. There will always be an annoying blue commander at the table and spells will just sit in your graveyard. The only sorceries/ instants I recommend are Intuition , Cyclonic Rift , and Demonic Tutor usually to go find Birthing Pod .

I know you want budget cards but you should consider a proxy Lion's Eye Diamond because that card is busted in this deck. You can get 3 mana to cast Muldrotha then play it again from your graveyard to cast something else. Also, there is an infinite combo with Animate Dead , Lion's Eye Diamond , and Phantasmal Image to put all your permanents from your graveyard onto the battlefield. So those 3 cards are great to Intuition for.

Anyway, hope this helped, I can share my list with you if you want but I think you are off to a good start! +1 From me

I think you might be missing out by not playing Ezuri, Claw of Progress , Daxos the Returned , and Meren of Clan Nel Toth proliferating experience counters as well as planeswalkers is great, it gets you reanimate, +1/+1 counters on each combat with ezuri, and a good mana sink late game to just make huge huge creatures with daxos and all you need is to trigger an experience counter once. I'm working on something similar to this and just figured id throw in my two cents

LordBlackblade on Phenax Mill

I want to second what cdkime said about diversifying your strategy. One of my decks is a Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck, and when there's a mill deck in my pod the victory is pretty much a given. I have two suggestions, one is pretty easy to implement, and the other requires considerably more alterations but from my experience can be quite powerful!

First, you could run Leyline of the Void to absolutely wreck graveyard decks. Add a few tutors, Demonic Tutor or Vampiric Tutor to increase the odds of getting it. It's obviously not perfect because it is just one card, but it helps massively against decks that would gain advantage from your milling. Other options in this vein include Relic of Progenitus , Tormod's Crypt , Nihil Spellbomb , and the ever-spicy Grafdigger's Cage .

The second strategy is to make your deck into a "hidden" theme deck utilizing Relentless Rats . One of the mill decks in my meta uses this strategy and more often than not, it works. With enough Relentless Rats out, they'll get pretty big butts that you can utilize with Phenax, God of Deception to mill your opponent out in one go. If that plan fails, or they're mill resistant ( Gaea's Blessing , Eldrazi Titans) you can just stomp their faces in with your rat army.
