Pathbreaker Ibex is absolutely insane in this deck. I would also add some dragons 8). add Brawn or some other trample enablers too.

If you're going for a single-out-a-player-hunt-them-down theme:

I think the curses are pretty funny:

Curse of Death's Hold

Curse of Vengeance

Curse of Predation

Curse of Shallow Graves

Also, since you're removal heavy:

Grave Betrayal

Going to need some card draw:

Phyrexian Arena

Tireless Tracker

Recur some of your curses and other combo cards with:

Eternal Witness

Greenwarden of Murasa

Some other dick cards include:

Plow Under - Nothing says "Screw you" like setting them back 2 mana and 2 draw steps.

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa - Another way for you to animate lands.

Nature's Revolt - Another way for you to animate lands.

Some generally good cards:

Nature's Lore - Ramp that puts stuff into play untapped (can get Bayou and Overgrown Tomb as well as forest).

Demonic Tutor & Diabolic Tutor - go get that combo piece

Toxic Deluge - a scale-able board-wipe that can kill indestructible things

Maelstrom Pulse - Another removal spell that can hit walkers (as well as anything else)

Abrupt Decay - Another removal spell that can hit a ton of non-creature threats

Garruk Relentless  Flip - Also another token generator to feed into your Beastmaster Ascension or ultimate emblem.


Bane of Progress - too many artifacts and enchantments to run this guy

Burnished Hart - more for non-green decks that need ramp. The stuff you have in here is already way better.

Butcher of Malakir - Never a big fan of this guy, especially if you don't have ways to control when his trigger happens (with ways to sac guys whenever you want)

Creakwood Liege - Not a lot of 2-color creatures to take advantage of his buffs

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - Works best when you use dredge mechanics to fill up your Graveyard. He doesn't look at opponent's graveyards, where - hopefully - most of the creatures will be.

Necroskitter - Only have 1 other card to enable the -1/-1 counters, so this guy won't be doing much.

Pathbreaker Ibex - Is generally considered a weaker Craterhoof Behemoth, but attacking in waves will be less frequent considering you'll be spending a good amount of the game using your mana to kill things.

Seedborn Muse - Not a lot of instants or other effects to use on other people's turns to run this guy.

Explosive Vegetation - You should be good with what you have ramp-wise

See the Unwritten - Not enough 4+ power creatures to use this. I'd be totally onboard if Garruk made 4/4s instead of 3/3s

Golgari Signet - You should be good with what you have ramp-wise

Ruinous Path - Might have too much removal, considering your PW is removal as well.

Thornbite Staff - Best coupled with Deathtouch, which I'm not seeing any of in here

Attrition - The non-black clause is pretty touch to swallow, and you have better removal already

Blowfly Infestation - Is this just in here for Necroskitter? lol

Food Chain - You have better ramp

Palace Siege - Not feeling either mode.

Make Obsolete - Might want to trade this in for something more versatile like Doomwake Giant or Pestilence

RedUndead40 on Meren Deck Card Suggestions

Avoid Fecundity- Meren's biggest strength is out-valuing your opponents and replacing all the creatures you make them sac is going to cause troubles. Something like Harvester of Souls is much better.

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord is a great game ender. Its pricey but Lord of Extinction is my main wincon in my Meren deck paired with either Jarad or Pathbreaker Ibex.

First of all, I would either cut Ruric Thar or cut a few noncreature spells, since his ability applies to everyone, and all it takes to bring someone down from 40 to 0 is 7 noncreatures.

I would cut Vexing Shusher and replace it with Spellbreaker Behemoth.

Alongside mana dorks, you probably should use extra lands per turn cards such as Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Azusa, Lost but Seeking.

Siege Behemoth and Arlinn Kord  Flip are nice for getting past pesky chump blockers, should your creatures not have trample handy.

Pathbreaker Ibex, Rapacious One, Balefire Dragon, and technically Deus of Calamity are all cards that benefit from Xenago's pump ability.

To protect your fatties during attacking, Stonehoof Chieftain can help with those with deathtouch or protection from red/green and Breaker of Armies helps by being the "attention stealer".

Malignus makes for a very nice early game threat and beater as well.

One lovely synergy I like to run is Dragon Throne of Tarkir+Heroes' Bane. Sure, my 256/256 gets reduced to a mere doorstop, but much worse things happen afterwards.

You can find my Xenagos deck here. Who knows, you may find some cards you like!

Caged Sun Pathbreaker Ibex Soul of the Harvest Archetype of Endurance HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. That pig has won more matches on his back...

A trio of tech cards I always run Revive Regrowth Eternal Witness need the recursion Here. I also run Greenwarden of Murasa myself because I like it and the flavor it provides.

General non-Creature destruction effectsAcidic Slime 2 for 1 every time. Bramblecrush I stand by this card being way better than people give it credit.

Song of the Dryads why yes that problematic commander is now a tree AND STUCK THERE.

Myriad Landscape and Blighted Woodland could make for some good excel and colorless mana if you need it.Mosswort Bridge is a great land, and having big creatures make is combo great.Magus of the Candelabra really really does do good in sir Clex right now, I don't see a good reason to ditch him or not much.- list text hereI notice you also took out Search for Tomorrow, and you only have one spell worth casting on turn one(Sol Ring would be good for this too).I think Explore would be really rather decent too, it's also card drawing, so worth thinking about.I also think having a few more lands would be really a good idea, I know you love your cards, but Animist's Awakening, and anything that adds land plays are only good with having land in your hand.Journey of Discovery is also one you had before I don't see now.Beast Within is probably some of the strongest removal out there, and I feel it is definitely better than Titan's Presence which while okay, is only good if you have your titans in your hand... where you'd rather they not be. Option is Song of the Dryads which(while a sorcery) can take out commanders or anything at all.Vedalken Orrery is in some ways better here than in Jin, because of how strong how safe it makes you.Now, those are some suggestions, let's do some take outs.I feel that Nylea, God of the Hunt really isn't the best you can you use for it, the trample is gotten from Akroma's Memorial and the pump is strong but there should be other options, and you have some pretty massive butts as it is. Another idea(that could be terrible), would be Ursapine. He is a little odd, but with a straight mana buff to your commander, I can easily see you one shotting people by attacking with him, and he already has trample. In addition, Pathbreaker Ibex and Overwhelming Stampede really can just win you the game, works similar.Courser of Kruphix is only really good if you have land in your hand... something that doesn't look like it will happen too much(maybe late game, but I feel you can have better actual excell).Rampaging Baloths... disappoints me... it should be so strong... but... meh, I don't even run it in Karametra. Regal Force is made stronger by the Baloths, but I don't think you need to depend on your green creatures. Another Soul's Majesty kinda card would give you more cards most of the time.Horn of Greed Just has to go.Defense of the Heart is really a great card, but I don't think you need it... at the same time I can't just say take it out.I agree about Garruk, Caller of Beasts.I think that should be a good dose of feedback. Any questions?
