Phyrexian Tower Discussion

Tata on Teysa tokens

I think Scoured Barrens , Terramorphic Expanse , and Evolving Wilds can be cut for utility lands. Strip Mine , Wasteland , Tectonic Edge , Ghost Quarter , Phyrexian Tower , Bojuka Bog , Emeria, The Sky Ruin all come to mind as better than those 3 lands that I mentioned.

I also you're playing too many lands at 39.

I also think your deck is missing out on a lot of ramp cards. Tithe , Knight of the White Orchid , etc., are all pretty useful. I like creatures that get you lands like the knight (or things like Solemn Simulacrum because they also fuel your sac engines.

schulle on Meren graveyard shenanigans

Hey there, I have some suggestions first would be Plaguecrafter you already have two similar effects but the control over the board is always welcome,because it is hard to outgrind Meren when she does her thing.

As Greg said try, to get your hands on as many 1 drop manadorks as you can,so you can speed up your engine because you will draw hate as Meren fast and if you are heavily disrupted in the early stages of the game it can get tricky to get a foothold on The board later on (sidenote Exploration and Burgeoning may also help).

I also enjoy Birthing Pod in my Meren deck as a reapeatable tutor/saccoutlet it can help to get the creatures you need in some situations.

Also maybe add 1-2 additional artifact/enchantment removal spells in case something like Torpor Orb hits the field which would screw you up otherwise.

Last as mentioned try to get your hands on a Viscera Seer free saccoutlets are very powerful in your deck and the cheaper they are the better they become, Phyrexian Tower would also be a major upgrade to your manabase.

Suggestions to cut: Winding Constrictor yes you have a +1counter subtheme but the creatures are either removed if they get too big or not online at all which makes this card more or less a vanillacreature

Wall of Blossoms :it's often used as a filler to thin your deck a little but you would profit more from a simple manadork

Korozda Guildmage effects are too expensive in my opinion would fit way better in something like Ghave, Guru of Spores as your not the typical go wide deck

Eater of Hope to expensive for a a evasive beater and you could have better saccoutlets if you want a scary creature for The top of your curve Terastodon would be better in my opinion or Attrition for the removalaspect

Extractor Demon would be fin if you had more cards to reanimate creatures of The opponent but the mill alone isn't Wörth it mostly

Vulturous Zombie ...meh

Hope some of these suggestions help with The deck.

If you have unlimited money or allow proxies, you could use Replenish to put any curses you discard straight into play or Academy Rector as a blocker that hits back with a curse. But a more budget alternative is Bitterheart Witch , which because it has Deathtouch is a much better blocker. Accursed Witch  Flip is on-theme as well. Phyrexian Tower may help accelerate mana.

Really, any type of mana rock will help you get to the 5 mana you need to get Curse of Misfortunes out.

Painful Lesson is expensive at 3 mana for what it does, try Night's Whisper or Sign in Blood instead.

Thanks for the insight, I will definetely consider adding Flayer of the Hatebound . However, he is single card, and I fear that will not be consistent enough. Sac outlet-wise I have Viscera Seer , Grimgrin, Corpse-Born , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , God-Eternal Bontu , Phyrexian Tower and even Bolas's Citadel , I feel like that is plenty. Also, I dont want to make aristocrat-style deck, that is why I did not put Judith, the Scourge Diva and fling sac outlets.

Budget-wise, I find it acceptable to go up to $10 for single card upgrade, and from all cards in deck I miss only Wurmcoil Engine and Sneak Attack , which I plan to acquire in near future.

If you believe some cards do not belong, feel free to tell me.

Pikobyte on Never Play In Graveyards

Ok, that’s something to work with :-)

A solid mill package would be Mesmeric Orb , Hedron Crab and Sidisi, Brood Tyrant . Sidisi also makes you tokens to support your aristocrats theme.

To protect your commander, cards like Diplomatic Immunity , Curator's Ward and Command Beacon are key. A well filled graveyard is only good with Muldrotha out. While the first 2 offer superior protection, command beacon allows you to play around commander tax and always play Muldrotha for 6 no matter how often she was killed.

Finally your deck wants some creatures that give you profit when they die and some ways to let them die. Caustic Caterpillar is a nice one, it can bringt itself in the graveyard while harming your opponents and can be recast. Spore Frog offers superior protection every turn. Siren Stormtamer is nice against spot removal and can even counter things like a Bojuka Bog . For more mean shenanigans you could add Aura Thief to steal goodstuff like mana-doublers, propaganda like effects and much more and Mindslicer to empty everyone’s hand while you keep using your graveyard as your hand. Night Incarnate is a beast against decks like elves, goblins, tokens etc.

With cards High Market and Phyrexian Tower you can sac creatures with triggers on death at instant speed well timed the moment you need them to die. And finally Grave Pact turns every creature you send to your grave to a Fleshbag Marauder for your opponents.

Hope this helps, none of these should be too expensive, only command beacon is a bit more I guess. If you like this playstyle and want to add a gem that’s slightly more expensive I bet you find something in my decklist you desire.
