Priest of Forgotten Gods Discussion

kamarupa hey thanks for the input! I like Ratchet Bomb and Everlasting Torment as options in the side board. Will add. You think Sign in Blood is better than Plunge into Darkness ? I looked at it and I figured plunge was more flexible, but I'm not sure. Bump in the Night is a good card no doubt but I kinda wanted to stay away from more conventional burn spells and rely more on using my creatures as a way to get reach. May be not as competitive but more fun to me. Priest of Forgotten Gods I have considered. I don't know I feel like I want to be on the attack with my creatures and I feel like priest slows the aggression down. You think it would be a decent sideboard fit? Thanks.

Fate Transfer would be another way to remove counters from Undying creatures.

Hey, good looking deck, ive been enjoying tuning up meren as well, feel free to take this with a grain of salt but here are a couple things i notice that i would suggest changing
-first i notice a strong discard theme, which i can understand the temtation to just get to dip cards into the grave, unfortunatly with some of these you might be unintentionally giving your opponent card advantage with cards like Dark Deal . I prefer Fauna Shaman to get cards from hand to grave yard, cause then you can find the other half of a combo, for ex. Fauna Shaman >discard Phyrexian Devourer search for Triskelion discard Triskelion search for Necrotic Ooze play it, win on the spot, or if there is a counter just bring him back at the end of turn and do it again. Another great option is Buried Alive when i play meren against another graveyard deck it is pretty much a race to get this because many times it can cause a graveyard deck to win on the spot. Also Phyrexian Reclamation and Tortured Existence can have some awsome graveyard interactions depending on your need -next is recurgence you have some great card effects that cant really be recurged like you can with creatures so cards like Nihil Spellbomb while a good effect maybe something like Agent of Erebos could give you much more value, in a deck like this seeking out creatures to do the job of spells can be very powerfull. Another card that does a lot of work for me is Life from the Loam getting lands and filling your grave yard is great ive played it turn two with no target to value drege on t3. -lastley im glad your running Necropotence many overlook this card for some crazy reason, but i would recomend running Reliquary Tower or Thought Vessel to get some crazy value out of it, my personal favorite is Venser's Journal but some ppl think its to costy, i understand that. -Well if you read all that thanks for listening to my rant, i enjoy playing meren a lot and have tested her in a pretty competetive environment extensivly, so i have lots of opinions on her lol. Some last thoughts would be to drop: Bloodghast , Priest of Forgotten Gods , Shriekmaw and add somthing like : Viscera Seer , Phyrexian Delver , and Fauna Shaman . Any questions or anything just let me know, i like talking about meren, good luck buddy

How have you found Priest of Forgotten Gods ? I know you tested out the Thornbite package but with that removed, is it still pulling weight?
Also, I have been toying with the very casual-feeling Gray Merchant of Asphodel . It can lead to big bursts of lifegain to keep us going and I’m imagining a wonderful world where you sac him to Razaketh to tutor an Animate Dead and then sac him again to get a Reanimate and then sac him again to get...
Maybe that’s just my own version of Command the Dreadhorde haha

Consider Priest of Forgotten Gods -- you have no way to incur card advantage. What happens if you're out of a hand and your board is empty? Also serves as ramp and removal. Busted for a 2 drop. Especially with all of the recurrable dudes in this list.

My immediate thought with utilizing the Bros efficiently was to emphasize artifact creatures (ex. Goblin Replica ) and enchantment creatures (ex. Courser of Kruphix ) so you could always have options on what to sacrifice to answer a problem. You have the creature portion covered completely but I honestly cannot see you wanting to sacrifice any of your enchantments without also hurting yourself.
Most options to make expendable enchantment tokens are not great, like Pharika, God of Affliction , but some like Renowned Weaver could be viable because, again, it gives you options on what you want to sacrifice.
Bros' cost is also kind of expensive so ways to reduce it or generate more mana (you are in ) will allow multiple activations if need be. Heartstone and Thran Turbine come to mind to reduce their cost and Burnished Hart , Wild-Field Scarecrow , Solemn Simulacrum , Skittering Surveyor and Pilgrim's Eye are great early game to fix your mana while late-game you can sacrifice them to either ability.
You mentioned reanimation in the description so some more options are Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , Phyrexian Delver , Oath of Ghouls , Palace Siege , Entreat the Dead , Feldon of the Third Path , Victimize , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist .
I would also consider other sacrifice options so in case you do not need to activate Bros you can still generate value via sacrificing your tokens or creatures. Altar's Reap and Costly Plunder for card advantage, Sidisi, Undead Vizier to tutor, Priest of Forgotten Gods for multi-value, etc.
You have the protective-footwear covered but I would consider adding Spider Umbra and Kaya's Ghostform so you can protect or sacrifice them if need be. Other personal favorites of mine are Undying Evil and Supernatural Stamina .
Looks nefariously "fun!"

I'm building a deck somewhere in this line. One thing I'm sure is Sorin gives you better card advantage over Priest of Forgotten Gods or Ajani for that matter. I suggest you try Massacre Girl combined with Afterlife and Cruel Celebrant , that's win con drop with a lot of Tithe Takers out.

Are you sure that you want to have 4 Priest of Forgotten Gods ? I don't think it really fits. It is a powerful card but your deck seems to be gaining advantage from going wide with things like Shanna, Sisay's Legacy and sacrificing your own creatures probably won't help with that. Maybe you could put in Dawn of Hope instead?
