Necrotic Ooze

Creature — Ooze

As long as Necrotic Ooze is on the battlefield, it has all activated abilities of all creature cards in all graveyards.

This reminds me of how my Jarad deck runs before the updates. You might want to consider adding Necrotic Ooze in the 99 if were talking graveyard shenanigans.

Otherwise nice to see another lich deck.

Such an interesting deck concept lol. Magus of the coffees goes infinite with Sword of the Paruns also you can get another combo by adding Phyrexian Devourer with Necrotic Ooze + Triskelion + Phyrexian Devourer :)

Ryanh12 if you combo off with Mairsil himself, you can get around the "once-per-turn" restriction through using Quicksilver Elemental .

By having Mairsil target himself with Quicksilver Elemental's ability, he gains another copy of each of his abilities. For example, if he has Gilded Lotus and Pili-Pala caged, first Mairsil's abilities will be like this:

  • : Add three mana of any colour
  • : Add one mana of any colour

After copying his own abilities, he would read as follows:

  • : Add three mana of any colour
  • : Add one mana of any colour
  • : Add three mana of any colour
  • : Add one mana of any colour

Each of these abilities has their own counter for checking if it has been activated. So essentially, each time you use Quicksilver Elemental to have Mairsil copy his own abilities, you get another use of each of his abilities including Quicksilver Elemental's ability!

Do note that if you combo with Necrotic Ooze instead (the actual main combo of this deck) you don't have the "once-per-turn" restriction so it is a lot easier to combo off.

So i see you have sheoldred and Jarad, but some cards that really make those nuts are Phyrexian Devourer (jarad can wipe a table with this) and Triskelion + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . Fauna Shaman can put the right cards in your hand and the grave. Necrotic Ooze is insane in grave decks, and another card that can cause gravyard decks to win on the spot is Buried Alive . All that should take a little pressure of the genesis win con and provide more win con outlets, but i also play a competetive meren so i understand im a little biased towards the reanimation side of things. Life from the loam is one of my favorite golgari cards (i know its mono green, but we all know where it goes lol) so congrats on this badass looking page btw well done! Im a little jelous lol. Good luck!

Kogarashi on Nooze and Herald of Anafenza ...

No, you don't.

Activated abilities are any abilities written as "(Cost) : (Effect)," while triggered abilities are any abilities that begin with "when," "whenever," or "at." All others are static abilities.

Herald of Anafenza has two abilities: an activated ability (Outlast; look at the reminder text) and a triggered ability (begins with "Whenever"). Necrotic Ooze has activated abilities, but not triggered abilities.

So Necrotic Ooze would read as though it has the Herald's Outlast ability, but it would not have the triggered ability, and it is the triggered ability that creates the 1/1 Warrior.

Not quite sure how the interaction with Herald of Anafenza and Necrotic Ooze goes. If you use the Nooze to outlast, do you get the 1/1 Warrior?


DSquirrel on Meren

Cards like Journey to Eternity  Flip and Deadbridge Chant are great additional recursion as some people will focus on not letting Meren stay out.

Necrotic Ooze works well with any graveyard deck.

Poison-Tip Archer Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat add extra value to sacrificing creatures.

Plaguecrafter is a better version of Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner it's always a 3rd copy of the effect if that's what you want to though
