KittenPetter on Meren's Sacrificial Army of Pestilence and Death

multimedia Thanks! Your observations are indeed very astute and taking serious. I just decked myself out yesterday. Plus my friends all run Bojuka Bog in any relevant deck so if I don't combo win I can be screwed. I don't want to combo win with infinite combos aside from Nim Deathmantle but that offers good value too. More land and putting back Sakura-Tribe Elder is wise. Probably should have 3 of each. I like cycling a lot but I am thinking the Desert of the Glorified amd Desert of the Indomitable could he cut and aren't super flavorful art wise anyway and have the worse cycling costs too. I like all the other cards you suggested. Many are a matter of time if you will. No Trike though. Only good enough if you combo with it in my opinion and I don't like the flavor either. But still the smart choice no doubt. Thanks again!

My primary win con is probably going to be Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion as I can assemble it easily with Buried Alive + Victimize and it can win right away.

Secondary win con is any of my Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle combos. They take longer to set up, and they don't win right away as the tokens don't have haste; however, I thought it would be a fun combo to try out. That said..additional protection / recursion may necessary if I continue with this combo.

Aetherflux Reservoir + Bolas's Citadel + Sensei's Divining Top. Haven't played with this combo to much yet, but so far top and citadel offer great utility even if I don't assemble all 3 pieces of the win con (Further testing in the works.)

As far as artifact / enchantment removal I currently have Karn Liberated, Ratchet Bomb, and Pharika's Libation. Im considering adding Oblivion Stone or Nevinyrral's Disk. I may play Ugin, the Spirit Dragon if/when I get my hands on one.

I've been considering the Contamination + Bitterblossom lock. It'll depend on how my group reacts to playing against stax.

Something to consider for the deck would be Nim Deathmantle. It can go infinite with Murderous Redcap or Sling-Gang Lieutenant + Ashnod's Altar.

I never was a fan of Chaos Warp, myself... especially in Mardu strategies. Not only is there always the risk that you'll bring out something worse in the target's place, but you simply have better options thanks to your access to white. Some alternatives you might wanna consider are Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking and Utter End.

Grave Hate is better to have an not need than to need and not have. Something you might wanna add is Bojuka Bog, if nothing else. I'd also recommend Remorseful Cleric.

Finally, some tutors you might wanna look into if you have the money are Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard.

Hey tiagompm, Thank you! And thanks for the suggestion. I don’t currently own a Nim Deathmantle, but I’ll have to get one and add it in.

Hello! Nice ideas! One sugestion: you have Wurmcoil Engine, Grave Titan and Ashnod's Altar. Just miss one Nim Deathmantle to complete a infinite creatures and mana combo. Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle + Wurmcoil Engine or Grave Titan.

You already have Grave Titan and Ashnod's Altar so you may as well include Nim Deathmantle too since they go infinite together.

I have an Ayara, First of Locthwain edh deck as well. Combos with Pitiless Plunderer+ Gravecrawler+Ashnods alter or Ashnods alter+Nim Deathmantle+Grave Titan I include a Skullclamp and Blood Artist Vindictive Vampire Oathsworn Vampire and Dictate of Erebos so I can cycle one of the reanimators over and over, essentially board wiping. I adjusted the deck from mostly spamming tokens into a more aristrcrat vibe. I like this ultra token version though it looks cool.
