Braids, Cabal Minion is super annoying to play against and so much fun!

both Vraska the Unseen and Pernicious Deed are great removals.

Looks like a fun deck!

What about Pernicious Deed instead of Merciless Eviction ?

Varolz, the Scar-Striped seems like he could work wonders in this deck, if you're OK with the scavenge mechanic.

Pernicious Deed is an amazing and versatile board wipe.

+1 cause I love Atraxa!

Deathrite Shaman is super versatile and can screw with your opponents graveyards amazingly.

Dreg Mangler is a 3/3 with haste and scavenge for 3cmc.

Spiritmonger and Vulturous Zombie can both get huge quick!

Varolz, the Scar-Striped makes any of your creatures an absolute wrecker!

Pernicious Deed is an amazing board wipe that deals with those pesky enchantments!

Looks like tons of fun! Good luck!

Zimmers_0: Mine seems to be running really really well so far. A special shout-out to a few cards though!

Shisato, Whispering Hunter locks down an opponent pretty thoroughly as long as you can keep generating snakes.

Ulvenwald Tracker allows your deathtouchy snakes to fight your opponents' commanders.

Wickerbough Elder is great repeatable removal in this deck - you can reset him to use him again.

Your removal seems okay but you're missing Beast Within (simply the best green piece of removal in EDH). Pernicious Deed is also great.

How do you feel about tutors? Demonic Tutor and Diabolic Intent are great here. Same with Eldritch Evolution: you can sac a token to get a 2-drop, or a utility creature to get a combo piece.

Do you have any particular card draw in mind? You seem a bit light on it.

Still though your deck looks good! :) I used a lot of cards for it in my list :)

I will keep those in mind. Caustic Caterpillar and Sylvok Replica and the Maulfist Revolutionary is invaluable to me to say the least. However, Winding Constrictor doesn't seem all that powerful in there because I do not run very many counters in the deck.

The Gaze of Granite and Pernicious Deed are going on there as soon as I can find them.

Thank you for the help. I've been wondering if there were more removal cards on creatures. Thank you very much for showing me.

Sorry for the late reply, I needed time to consider your suggestions. I agree Pernicious Deed would be a good card for this deck, but I also like Ant Queen for her control over spawning tokens (blockers and for sacrificing). If I learn any cards hold me back or eventually become disliked, I will replace it with Pernicious Deed unless I put my copy in another deck (might be the Atraxa Superfriends/Stax deck).


While Meren is a good reanimation commander, I don't view this deck as a reanimation deck; I built it to kill my opponents creatures. To make a card like Buried Alive truly effective, one must include the other key reanimation spells that effectively make up a reanimation deck (in EDH). Those spells are Reanimate, Living Death, Animate Dead, etc. I know I have some reanimation spells in the 99, but they are there in case Meren is not out. I will not use Buried Alive in this deck, but it will see play in my Volrath Deck (Voltron/Reanimation).
