Oakhame Adversary Discussion
5 hours ago
Mindblade Render and Oakhame Adversary are both your friends here. Generally in a cEDH envirnoment, you don't need to worry about evasion as much as you just want more card advantage. There will usually be at least one player who doesn't a have huge board state which you can use to springboard off to take out players with bigger board states. But card advantage is will make a huge difference.
Altar of the Brood feels underwhelming here and feels like it should be another dork like Deathrite Shaman, who is straight up one of hte best dorks in cEDH. You also have Elves of Deep Shadow and Arbor Elf which you can add and all help to get Najeela down turn 2.

Mana dorks will be excellent in a meren deck. Having extra sac fodder is a great thing.
A quick way to up the power of a deck that isn't already cEDH is to get rid of anything higher than 3 mana that doesn't directly make you win and replace it with cheap draw and ramp. Mindblade Render, Oakhame Adversary, Dark Confidant would all be well in line as 2 cmc draw to add (bonus being creatures for meren). A bit of dredge in Golgari Thug and Darkblast can also be "draw" in a graveyard based deck and the more actual draw you have the better your dredge will be. Natural Order can be a replacement for a more expensive(cmc) win con because you can sacrifice a dork and end up with protean hulk.
As far as your combo, I like Walking Ballista a lot more than triskelion with mikaeus. It requires a sac outlet with it, but your line likely includes getting carrion feeder or viscera seer at the start of it anyway. Ballista also can be cast for 0 with meren and just die every turn until you want to return it to hand and cast to kill something, then rinse and repeat.

Hey, welcome to TappedOut. Good budget version and start for your first Commander deck.
On a budget consider expanding on Elves to make repeatable mana to activate Radha? You have Priest of Titania already which is great there's also Elvish Archdruid and Marwyn, the Nurturer. Grand Warlord Radha and Radha, Heir to Keld can make mana when they attack and Grand Warlord makes mana equal the the number of creatures who are attacking. The mana that they make when they and other creatures attack can be used in combat to activate Heart of Keld. In Magic you're allowed to control multiple Radha's with different names on the battlefield at the same time. The legendary rule only applies when you control two legendary cards with the same name on the battlefield.
Mina and Denn, Wildborn has good interaction with Rahda since it lets you play more than one land a turn from the top of your library or hand. It can also give Radha trample by bouncing a land you control. Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf and Springbloom Druid land ramp for a basic land which puts another land onto the battlefield for Radha's pump. Wood Elves can search for a Forest or a Forest dual land such as Cinder Glade or Sheltered Thicket. Being able to ramp with a dual land is very helpful.
Ezuri, Renegade Leader can be repeatable protection for Radha/other Elves with regeneration and it can be another mana sink to give Radha as well as all other Elves you control pump and trample. Beast Whisperer can be repeatable draw when you cast a creature.
Other Elves to consider adding:
Quartzwood Crasher is very good with one of the best cards in your deck Garruk's Uprising for trample and repeatable draw. Uprising gives all your creatures including Radha trample and with Crasher when those creatures do combat damage you create a Dino token that has power/toughness equal to the amount of damage those creatures did. These Dino tokens can be huge.
I offer more help. Would you like more help?
Good luck with your deck.

Hi. I like the deck. My only suggestions (at least that I can think of right now) would be to first replace something like Deadly Rollick with Duplicant. The reason I say this is because it exiles a creature - while giving you a decent one - and it's an artifact, so it can be reused, whereas the rollick, though free to cast, requires you have your commander out to do that anyway, and is not reusable.
A really, truly, very spicy tech card that I think would be cool to try out would be Toshiro Umezawa. The fact that him and Glissa trigger on opponents' dying creatures - and that either one of their recycled cards have the potential to kill stuff - (and you already have some instants) - makes me feel like he's a worthy include. (I would replace it with Oakhame Adversary).
Best of luck

I am working on the abzan equivalent of this list. It uses Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa to utilize cheap threats such as Mindblade Render or Oakhame Adversary for card advantage, while utilizing Green's addition of a few valuable pieces of removal, such as Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy.
The current Legacy version often uses a mix of Sevinne's Reclamation, Lingering Souls, Dark Confidant, and Stoneforge Mystic style finishes, almost all of which fit well in this strategy. Umezawa's Jitte would just end games!

As for card draw..... I personally haven't figured it out. Maybe Mask of Memory? You don't want too many equipment that bog the deck down. Maybe stuff like Light Up the Stage? I'm not sure. It's stuff like this that makes me wish we had stuff like Azra Oddsmaker and Oakhame Adversary in Boros colors.

arcane_trouper, Hystrodon definitely fits within a Rafiq of the Many deck where attacking with a creature with double strike and trample is way more likely to get you two triggers than attacking with a creature with double strike and deathtouch. Remember, creatures are more fragile, so they have to meet a higher standard: drawing two cards per rotation of the table. Hystrodon gets there if you happen to have double strike, but Oakhame Adversary needs double strike AND some type of evasion to get around the all-too-common token chump blocker. If Oakhame Adversary were on the list, Scroll Thief would be too.
