Phyrexian Altar Discussion

Budget Cards: Beast Within, Krosan Grip, and Putrefy are all strong budget removal cards, worth considering. Was a little surprised you don't run mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Elves of Deep Shadow, Llanowar Elves, (there are more). These guys are great early-game ramp. Golgari Signet should probably be included too. City of Brass and Mana Confluence are good lands. Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner can be very annoying and powerful with Meren. Butcher of Malakir is a Grave Pact with legs, so you can bring it back with Meren. Caustic Caterpillar may be worth running too. Nim Deathmantle is almost definitely worth running since it will give you infinite colorless mana and infinite zombies when paired with Grave Titan and Ashnod's Altar, cards you are already running (and its not bad on its own). Finally, if you do end up running Phyrexian Altar ($$, mentioned in first comment), consider running Gravecrawler-- it'll go infinite with Phyrexian Altar, Zulaport Cutthroat, and a zombie.

Expensive Suggentions: Vampiric Tutor is an obvious choice, and possibly Tooth and Nail as well (entwined, it puts Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion both into play). Phyrexian Altar is also better than some of the sac outlets you're curretly running. For lands Ancient Tomb and Gaea's Cradle are good. The cradle is very expensive, but becomes strong if you decide to run Crop Rotation. You could also run Verdant Catacombs and Bayou, but again, money is probably in issue for these cards (it would be for me :)

Nice list! I'd add Phyrexian Altar for redundancy and to get colored mana. Laboratory Maniac also wins if you name Insect with Kindred Discovery.

Phyrexian Devourer to add to your necrotic ooze combos. Protean Hulk, Phyrexian Delver and Carrion Feeder for more win-con combos. Phyrexian Altar, Su-Chi, Grave Titan and Nim Deathmantle for more win-con combos. Good looking deck.

After some great suggestions for cards and lines of play I hadn't thought of. I'm adding Anointed Procession, Mana Echoes, Primal Vigor, Living Plane, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Ashnod's Altar, and Phyrexian Altar, for now they will go on the aquire board and as I get the cards I will update the list.

Where are your altars and mana echoes if you want as many combos as possible. Check out my list for ideas. It also has the expensive Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite + Living Plane interaction if you are up to it.

Wiggyman I have noticed Endrek is a top recommendation on EDHrec. I think he definitely works as a cool general! I feel as though as the build is, I'm more than content with the amount of tokens generating. Though if I were to revisit this idea, I would also probably include Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar.

Ghave lends himself to combos that make inf saprolings or inf large ghave that you are ignoring so you can use your other combos. Such combos involve things like Doubling Season, Hardened Scales, Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives, or Cathars' Crusade and Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar. Your finks and your mikaeus are about the only things actually averse to doubling season and I would honestly get rid of both anyways. If you really want to use the mikaeus combos I would suggest using karador to more easily use your combo. It just seems as though your gameplan and your commander clash a little bit as opposed to synergizing.
