Reaper of the Wilds Discussion

_Delta_ on Don't Look Into Their Eyes!

Hello, i'm sorry for the delay in responding here. Anyways here are the changes I would make:

Ambuscade for Golgari Locket

Slagwurm Armor for Sol Ring

Pounce for Golgari Signet

Prey Upon for Deathcap Cultivator

Noble Quarry for Sheoldred, Whispering One

Grappling Hook for Vraska the Unseen

Ochran Assassin for Reaper of the Wilds

Bonds of Mortality for Phyrexian Obliterator ? :)

Golgari Findbroker for Treasured Find

Explosive Vegetation for Circuitous Route (If you add in my suggestion of Golgari Guildgate then this is a good reason to make this switch).

Swamp for Hythonia the Cruel as you have 1-2x many lands I think and also are a little low on creatures.

Cut 3x Forests and 5x Swamps for these: Command Tower , Golgari Rot Farm , Woodland Cemetery , Tainted Wood , Overgrown Tomb , Hissing Quagmire , Temple of Malady , Blooming Marsh , Jungle Hollow , Golgari Guildgate , Blighted Woodland , Temple of the False God , Llanowar Wastes , Bojuka Bog . (I gave you more than 10 choices here so you have options at varying prices, choose whichever 10 or even more that you would be willing to include here, keep in mind also that I have ordered them based on my most recommended to least, but all are fine choices here).

I have to get going for now, but I hope that you will find all of this useful, and let me know what you think of these changes!

Zulaport Cutthroat Is empirically better than Vindictive Vampire , Go for the Throat is stronger than Walk the Plank or Victim of the night. Solemn Simulacrum , Wood Elves , Merciless Executioner , and Reaper of the Wilds are really useful, and any repeatable graveyard recursion are really needed.

Viscera Seer : if perhaps you include a recursion/token package.

Darksteel Pendant : Indestructible is handy.

Shadows of the Past : mana sink, scry each death.

Bontu the Glorified : again, requires things to sac, and a mana sink.

Catacomb Sifter : death triggers.

Crystal Ball : digs 2 deep.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary : still works for casting as it doesn't say 'from hand'.

Reaper of the Wilds : returns attacks via deathtouch, and on death scry triggers.

Nissa's Revelation : could be fun depending on how many critters you have in it.

Price of Fame : Cheap commander removal.

Doom Whisperer : Flample, pay to see cards.

Explorer's Scope : ramp, and land off the top. Combined with other things you can plan around it.

Mirri's Guile : rearranges top 3. Might be outside your budget though.

Sensei's Divining Top : Guile in artifact form, again pricey.

Cream of the Crop : could be interesting, creature dependant.

Grim Flayer : not sure if good, you'll have to decide.

Scroll Rack : another pricey card but it sets things up.

Gilt-Leaf Seer : rearrange top 2.

Vizier of the Menagerie : Pretty handy if you've got a fair bit of critters.

Galvanoth : While not top manipulation, it can be pretty spicy with other top deck stuff.

Riddle of Lightning : depending on how high your curve goes it could work.

You only need a few beefy creatures for the late-game "unfair" sacrifice-to-kill-everyone play. For your main attack force you should be looking at efficient midrange creatures which Golgari has tons of. For example:

These creatures are credible threats on their own, and are not useless outside of sacrificing to your commander.

@WhichKing Thanks for the suggestions :) I love the idea of Underrealm Lich and Reaper of the Wilds to add to the deck somehow. The main idea around this deck is to gain a lot of value from artifacts and have ways of killing opponents creatures to keep getting them back. I like how going as artifact-ey as I did means that a lot of cards can come back rather than when they're gone then thats it. I really appreciate the suggestions though, love hearing what others think.

I see that you've chosen to make your deck as artifact-ey as possible. That is good and all, but you'll miss out on great creatures like Ulvenwald Hydra, Eternal Witness, Reaper of the Wilds, Underrealm Lich, Deathrite Shaman etc. Your commanders ability is very powerful, but you may be catering to it too much. All you need to maximize Glissa's ability is a couple of extremely useful utility artifacts, artifact creatures with great ETBs or LTBs, or artifacts that can stick around to generate value (and thus generate lots of hate, like the Immortal Sun).

ZendikariWol on Generic Meren Deck No. 97

Link to my Meren deck here: Okay, the Whole Death Thing? Minor Setback. That being said, here are some of the very best.

Targets: Acidic Slime for noncreature removal, Ravenous Chupacabra and Noxious Gearhulk are good creature removal, Primal Druid and Viridian Emissary are great ramp, Vindictive Lich and, Solemn Simulacrum Wurmcoil Engine are all fantastic.

Outlets: Champion of Stray Souls may seem odd, but really he's very useful. Sacrificing large quantities of creatures, getting the same amount back. Hell's Caretaker does the same, at a smaller scale. Disciple of Bolas is good card advantage. Killing Wave is either a board wipe or a massive burn spell. Perilous Forays is legendary ramp. Quagmire Druid is a little meta-dependent, but good. Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a tutor AND a sac. Stronghold Assassin is good removal. Vampiric Rites really pretty good card draw.

And now for the passive stuff: Catacomb Sifter, Shadows of the Past, and Reaper of the Wilds are good. Deathreap Ritual, Smothering Abomination, and Lifecrafter's Bestiary are all stellar. Savra, Queen of the Golgari and Dictate of Erebos are terrifying. And, finally, Zulaport Cutthroat, while not the greatest, is pretty subtle and drains a good amount.

I believe that the black cards are to appear later on the game, right? It seems that you prefer to make progress with green first. If it were the opposite i would recommend black cards that can take out adversary cards. But you dont seem to want to use black this way.

With which you gonna begin your game is always a hard decision, and not necessarily done by terms of color but strategy.

So black cards for later stages of the game:Corpsejack Menace, and Dark Impostor. A hell of a combination with your deck, i really would like to see it working.

Midrange black cards: Slitherhead, Lotleth Troll and Dreg Mangler.

And on maybeboard: Reaper of the Wilds, Lord of Extinction, The Gitrog Monster, and Canopy Cover.

Really awesome to think about this, the kind of strategy that may surprise you in a game. I believe i will plan a commander strategy based on this soon.

Hope it helped... Good luck!
