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.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth Discussion

Looks good, would you consider Sheoldred, Whispering One and/or Meren of Clan Nel Toth? Cauldron of Souls could provide redundancy for Mikaeus and combo with him as well. Since Jarad gets quite big you could also go more voltron with Nylea, God of the Hunt, Loxodon Warhammer, or Dragon Throne of Tarkir for trample.

I stopped playing Breya because she was winning on turn 3 or 4 more and more consistently which just doesn't work for my play group. So she isn't a bad choice. I dunno how you will build her for less than $200 simply because of the mana base...

To stick to your budget I'd go with 1 or 2 colors which leaves us with Athreos, God of Passage, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, or Omnath, Locus of Rage. You could maybe do Ramos, Dragon Engine since he is colorless to cast and provides all the ramp making the mana base much less important.

According to this list [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier ( Meren > Jarad > Omnath > Atheros. I've always heard good things about Meren and she is rated high by people that actually play competitively so I'd go with her out of your options.

Are you talking about "competitive" as in "I want to be able to compete with 75% decks", or "competitive" as in "I want to be able to compete with decks that combo off on turn 3"?

If you're looking for the former, I personally enjoy Meren of Clan Nel Toth; she's consistent due to running a large number of tutors, yet not incredibly oppressive if you build her right. Breya, Etherium Shaper is probably your other best bet.

If you're looking for the latter, I don't think any of the commanders you mentioned have what it takes. Pretty much the only budget cEDH deck is Yisan, Wanderer Bard.

I've decided to build a new commander deck and I'm trying to narrow down my choices to the most competitive that's not over $200. My choices are Animar, Soul of Elements, Athreos, God of Passage, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (Planeswalker. Does not have Jace, the Mind Sculptor or Karn Liberated), Breya, Etherium Shaper, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Kaalia of the Vast, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Ramos, Dragon Engine , or The Mimeoplasm. Keep in mind that even though I do like competitive I don't want a deck thats no fun to play. If you can't narrow it down to one card you can just list top 3.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth would absolutely be worthwhile here, I think. Also an often overlooked classic Ghastly Demise.

I think the deck is missfocused, some of your cards cards that want you to have a big graveyard, and other cards that eat your graveyard away, those two mechanics don't work well together, on the other hand your commander want's to keep your graveyard small so your oppnent have fewer options to choose a bad card.
You can consider changing your commander to someone who benefits more from dredging (or at least is not hindered by dredging) like Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Karador, Ghost Chieftain, The Gitrog Monster, The Mimeoplasm or some other, or change the strategy of the deck to use your graveyard as an spendable resource (Delve, Unearth, Scavenge, Flashback, Aftermath, Embalm, Eternalize...).

Maybe instead of so much Dredge you can use some global milling because some of your cards also care about your opponents graveyards some good options are Shared Trauma, Dread Summons, Mesmeric Orb, Dreamborn Muse or Consuming Aberration. If you go this way dont forget to include some graveyard hate (like Scavenging Ooze, Necrogenesis, Night Soil, Bojuka Bog or Nihil Spellbomb) because it's likely some oponent is using the graveyard and you will eventually cast your Living Death.

Recruiter of the Guard and Sidisi, Undead Vizier will help you find combo pieces, and are reusable as you are karador. Any time you want a deck to be more consistent in comboing off, you want more/better suited tutoring.

I am a fan of Ashen Rider as the top side of the cmc with birthing pod. It just gives excellent value and provides an answer to almost anything.

Another thing I run in mine is a 3 card lock using 1) a way to recur a crearute every turn (karador, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, sheoldred) 2) any sac outlet & 3) Yosei, the Morning Star. It completely shuts off 1 opponent, and if you have all 3 good ways to recur yosei, you can do it to up to 3.

I am also not a huge fan of your melira and finks combos. Not that they don't work or have merit, but the cards themselves dont do hardly anything for your deck outside the combo. That just always rubs me the wrong way, because I belive a card should be able to work with almost ALL your deck or provide an answer to your opponent's cards.

Homelessguy Thanks for the suggestion. However the deck doesn't have many large creatures to take advantage of the effect of Cream of the Crop, that being said Meren of Clan Nel Toth isn't trying to necessarily be used for reanimation either, but more of for a value engine and to lock the board with either Contamination or Mindslicer loops.
