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.

I personally run 34 lands with a cmc of 3.64, but sometimes have a game I wished i included one more. You have a few more rocks and dorks in your deck, so perhaps 34 is fine. But the cmc is a bit deceiving, I think your creature cmc cuts around 4, but the tutors and cheap removal you run holds it low.

On cuts, I think your deck looks in a good shape. Just quite spread with good stuff. You perhaps can narrow your focus down some more towards your wincons, especially since you run so much tutors.

E.g. Abzan Battle Priest is a good herald, but lifelink adds nothing to your strategy apart from survival.

Bastion Protector even does a double job here. It's great! But you could've also played e.g. Myth Unbound , Asceticism or Herald of War . I mean show em we don't care about their removal!

How often do you play Necropolis Regent over other stuff? She's good, but I'd probably played something else for 6. You already adopted my Rite of Replication plan, Mirror Mockery does nearly the same thing on Reyhan attacks.

Is Tymna the Weaver the optimal choice for card draw here? It's not that you run bleed effects.

And perhaps you could cut on Nature's Lore for Meren of Clan Nel Toth so you can recur the tribe elder or paradise bird.

I play Cathars' Crusade because i can make some tokens off Chasm Skulker , Mycoloth or Ghave, Guru of Spores and clones. But this does not apply to you so much. I'd cut it.

semsandberg on Muldrotha: Needs help

Hey bobobo77,

Muldrotha is an awesome commander and as I see you have a great base here. I have some suggestions for you. First I would add some mana-dorks like: Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , Boreal Druid , Elves of Deep Shadow or Sakura-Tribe Elder , Wood Elves . With Muldrotha often it works like Meren of Clan Nel Toth , you need a Grave Pact , Dictate of Erebos and a Butcher of Malakir . Than you can use all the AristocraticStuff like Spore Frog , Fauna Shaman , Mulldrifter , Shriekmaw , Fleshbag Marauder , Plaguecrafter , Eternal Witness and I highly recommend you The Gitrog Monster .

That's some thoughts. If you like, check out my Sidisi the Land reanimator-deck.

Hey kevinscheurwater

A friend of mine and me playtested this deck vs my Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck yesterday and it turned out to be pretty balanced (tho both decks are designed for 4player groups and the God might be a bit annoying if meren has to handle him solo). One thing I found out is how powerful the activated ability of The Scarab God is, especially versus a graveyard based deck. That said I would maybe swap the Coat of Arms with Training Grounds since it seems like I don't need more buffs to win.

The Necropotence turned out super powerful, which I didn't expect at first since the card looks so odd in it's design.

The Talisman of Dominance is already included. Only thing I now want to switch out is the Midnight Reaper : I had a Skullclamp in the deck, but there are too few sac outlets and the zombies don't die on their own, so it's kinda hard to get a constant draw from it, I'd like a more unsituational option here.

naturesnake420 xD Thank you, thank you. I might replace Grenzo with Meren of Clan Nel Toth and just go straight value-town, using Fierce Empath to fetch cards like Avatar of Woe , and Crypt Champion to recur things like Eternal Witness and Imperial Recruiter .

Dude, Windgrace Scapeshift is bonkers. The obvious one is Ob Nixilis, the Fallen , but Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth with Strands of Night is probably my favorite combo. I'm also a fan of Inkmoth Nexus / Bloodghast and Kessig Wolf Run . Also Aetherworks Marvel has saved me so many times, but I used to run nearly every fetchland known to man (and a good amount of board wipes) haha

Wish you luck :D

I'm not sure what kind of budget you have, but Meren of Clan Nel Toth is great for recurring your creatures, too. Muldrotha, the Gravetide is great for recurring any permanent.

The most easy upgrade would be for your lands, there's a ton you could add such as Dakmor Salvage , Svogthos, the Restless Tomb , Hissing Quagmire , High Market , Command Tower , Overgrown Tomb , Woodland Cemetery , Westvale Abbey  Flip, Bojuka Bog , Evolving Wilds , Grim Backwoods , Tainted Wood , and Golgari Rot Farm .

I will think of more things at another point when I have more time, if you in turn have any suggestions feel free to give any of my edh decks a look, perhaps my Meren of Clan Nel Toth decklist might give you some ideas in the process.

I have Mortify in the decklist. Also, I don't like Attrition since it only hits non-black creatures. If someone plays say, The Scarab God , Meren of Clan Nel Toth , or another teysa deck, it's a dead card. There are only so many slots in the 99 and I also don't like a lot of the new uncommons from ravnica allegiance that have afterlife. They don't seem good enough. Pitiless Pontiff fits that category as do older cards like Doomed Traveler . The main cards are the heavy hitters which you want to have die over and over again, mainly Wurmcoil Engine , Hangarback Walker , Seraph of the Scales , Kokusho, the Evening Star , Ashen Rider , and Elenda, the Dusk Rose . I'm running Dictate of Erebos so given the limited slots available, it doesn't seem necessary to also run gravepact and Butcher of Malakir . (although i certaintly do run all three in my Prossh deck)

thewyzman on Power cmdrs like TLG

Winterblast those cards are great counters to TLG, but (also IMMG54) i'm not much of a stax player, so I own about one of those cards. | DrukenReaps those commanders would be good if my goal was dealing specifically with TLG decks. No one in my meta is playing those, so what do I know? I haven't seen them in action. The weakness of my Omnath is removal. It's great at land plays and stompy things, but right now having a hard time finding the right removal cards and appropriate slots for them. Of course, let's not forget TLG has lots of blue, and plenty of countermagic to protect it. | SunsChampion I love Rakdos Charm for decks like TLG, Edgar, and all things tokeny, but can't seem to find the right commander in the right colors, though it feels like Nekusar is mentioned more and more in this thread. My only recourse is that there's already another player in the meta and I prefer to be unique. | DruneGrey Do you have a list? Maybe i'll be inspired to give her a hard look. I sure don't want to find myself playing blue solitaire. SynergyBuild I'll keep that in mind. I'm a career tinkerer, can never seem to find a single commander to commit to because of how easily I get discouraged when other decks shred mine. I'm currently running Omnath, Locus of Rage and Purphoros, God of the Forge as active decks. I took apart Meren of Clan Nel Toth because of how much hate it was getting from just sitting at the table, and i'm trying to theorize how to make a Tasigur, the Golden Fang deck to compete with my blue-heavy meta.

All that aside, the point of the thread was to ask folks if there are other commanders with win-power like TLG. Not necessarily blue infinite combos, but a commander with the ability to not only roast every player's life totals in a turn or two, but fill a board with flyers in the process.
