Puppeteer Clique

Creature — Faerie Wizard


When Puppeteer Clique enters the battlefield, put target creature card from an opponent's graveyard onto the battlefield under your control. It gains haste. At the beginning of your next end step, exile it.

Persist (When this creature dies, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)

If you can find room Altar of Dementia is by far my favorite sac outlet in Meren. There are so many things you can do with it. Most notably, you can have an infinite mill win condition with it, so that is certainly relevant. Next, you can sacrifice early creatures to this to fill your graveyard quickly. Then there are some strange plays you can do, like milling your opponent after they use an Enlightened Tutor or mill your opponent to try for a large creature off of Puppeteer Clique. I highly recommend this card for you.

IAmTheWraith Ain't no thang, babe. Seriously, this deck can pull off a lot of different shenanigans. I listed Exsanguinate mainly because it's the easiest win to pull off. But I've won through things like Fallen Angel eating twenty-ish harpies with Grave Pact out to wipe the board and swing for huge, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Puppeteer Clique and swinging with everyone's dudes, sacrificing Kokusho, the Evening Star over and over, swinging with Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip and other big dudes, blah blah blah... The deck is a lot of fun, you should try it out! ;D

I always upvote Gonti because he's awesome. Why no Mikaeus, the Unhallowed? Puppeteer Clique also seems on theme.

Trike comes in with four counters and gets the boost from Mikey. Ballista gets a boost and only one counter, so he'll be a 2/2. With Trike, you take two counters to hit the opponent and one to hit himself so he comes back with Mike. Ballista only works with a sac outlet/infinite mana, trike is independent.

Triskelion > Walking Ballista

Now on to suggestions: Necrotic Ooze goes infinite with Triskelion and Phyrexian Devourer. Puppeteer Clique goes infinite with mike + any sac outlet (Viscera Seer), and Woodfall Primus goes infinite in the same way.Contamination + Awakening Zone. There's also Helm of Obedience + Leyline of the Void (yes it does exactly what it looks like.

Admittedly I didn't look at your deck so I don't know what is in there or what your budget is, but Hope this helps!

There are a lot of key pieces that you are missing. I can give a few suggestions from the top of my head that might get you started in the right direction.

There are a million ways to go infinite with Ghave. It's harder to not go infinite.

Some cards that are probably underperforming and you might want to cut for these:

Welp, this turned out a lot longer than I expected. Hope it helps!

Smothering Abomination for Catacomb Sifter

There was a reason to cut Abomination in an earlier build. But I can't remember what. In the current build he should be really powerful. Honestly I'd rather keep both and cut something else.

Bloodspore Thrinax for Whisperwood Elemental

I was kind of on the fence on the thrinax. since it just feels bad to sac guys into it and just lose the creature afterwards. But the deck has gotten more consistent, and mass adding counters to a large swarm of tokens is very powerful. I could probably use some more strong persist creatures, since I'm only running one. The only other ones in Jund worth considering are Puppeteer Clique and Woodfall Primus

Saproling Symbiosis, Psychotrope Thallid,Shared Animosity

I'm not married to the Thallid idea. It's really cute, but most related cards have already been cut. Psychotrope seemed really good starting out, but the activation cost makes it a lot worse as a reactive card. Since I haven't picked it up yet, and it seemed sold out everywhere, I don't really think I still will. Maybe someday I will just collect all the tribal cards and make a transformative sideboard into a casual friendly deck.

token doublers?

It might seem strange, but so far I've build the deck out of cards I already own from previous decks. I've never been a huge fan of these cards since they seemed 'win-more' to me. But I might have misjudged their power level. Especially the ones that also double the +1 counters. But I just don't own them yet. I've put parallel lives and primal vigor on my wants list. But I think doubling season is a bit iffy for a card that only is really good in 1 deck strategy.

Purphoros, God of the Forge is on the list as well. But I don't really like vicious shadows for its cost.

weakest cards

Necrogenesis - probably want to swap it for ScOoze.Life and Limb - Really fun, cute pet card but should be cut from the 100% trimmed version.Whisperwood Elemental, Catacomb Sifter - See Above.Fyndhorn Elves - yeah probably.


Vandalblast & Calming Verse.

yeah, the deck is struggling a bit there. these seem like decent options.

Thanks for the help, and I hope to see your list one day. Sounds interesting. I will keep tweaking and updating as much as I can, and try to pick up some of the mentioned cards in the near future.

So some changes might be.

  • Necrogenesis = ScOoze.
  • Life and Limb = Purphoros or Primal Vigor
  • WhisperwoodE. = Bloodspore Thrinax
  • Catacomb Sif. = Smothering Abomination
  • Fyndhorn Elv. = Vandalblast

I also think Forgotten Ancient might be cut. Maybe for a damnation or calming verse.

WhisperingBlade Thanks so much! I'll have to check these out. I had Puppeteer Clique in, but took it out for something else. I'll look it over again.
