one strategy that works ok if you are the more aggro deck, is if you are on the draw turn one opening hand; Ulamog's Crusher Plains Barren Moor Exhume Tranquil Thicket Repopulate Secluded Steppe and draw anything like Edge of Autumn or something good like Miming Slime, go to your end step turn one discard Ulamog's crusher, turn 2 drop barren moor, turn 3 plains exhume, crusher!

besides Put Away and Repopulate, there's Feldon's Cane, which was printed as a Common in Chronicles... if you're playing paper, that is. Sac' the cane in response to a sacced Relic.

That's it. That's all you get, lol. =P =)

Some great ideas here. I'll be trying Repopulate and Polluted Dead

Please take a look at mine, would appreciate the feedback Obligatory Meren Deck

Hey, thanks for the recommendations! It's definitely crossed my mind, but I'm unsure of what I'd want to take out for it. I see the potential for the zombie chains it could cause, but as a 4-mana non-creature that doesn't do anything on it's own, I haven't found something I've been willing to pull out for it yet- what would you pull out in my place?

Currently, I haven't! There's very little graveyard hate in my current meta (I'm hoping my deck forces them to change that). Riftsweeper lived in the deck for a time, but was more of an answer to things like Swords to Plowshares than graveyard hate. The cards that truly threaten my graveyard are the ones that go off immediately, such as Tormod's Crypt. The benefit here is that the majority of the time, these are one-off effects. As I'm not playing combo, no individual card is worth enough for me to worry about losing, even if I am losing 10-20 cards from the graveyard at a time. The cards that I typically have to worry about are those with a persistent PASSIVE effects, such as Anafenza, the Foremost, Rest in Peace, etc.. Since I have a modicum of control over WHEN I'm self-milling, I'd rather use the precious card slots in the deck to provide answers to the persistent effects (supplied in the form of Go for the Throat for creatures, and Krosan Grip for non-creatures, among others). The additional point to this is that the cards I'm currently using have alternative instances in which they're useful as well, which I believe outweigh the general benefit of cards like Repopulate, or even the speedy Noxious Revival.

TL;DR is that I'd rather be reactively dealing with the card that's causing the problem permanently, instead of temporarily mitigating it's effect, if that makes any sense at all.

I definitely appreciate the thought though, and welcome any counter-argument you might have for the above!

Have you considered Path of Discovery? I'm liking it in my Meren deck and I think it would be even better here.

Also, other than Stronghold, have you considered other sources of Graveyard hate resiliency? Ones I'm considering myself are Bow of Nylea, Repopulate & Riftsweeper.

Guess you've excluded Earthcraft because of its price? Otherwise I feel it's preferable over Cryptolith Rite due to not requiring haste, although the low amount of non-Swamp basics might make it worse.

How do you feel about good ol' Scroll Rack? It lets you put accidentally drawn demons back on the library and also combos nicely with Thrumming Stone (esp. with Secret Salvage; only to get 29 Apostles on the ground while drawing as many cards! (although that's probably excessive for more than one reason))

Maybe some combination of Repopulate, Bone Harvest, Footbottom Feast and Gravepurge for the sake of graveyard hate resiliency? The last three also combos with Thrumming.

"I would only use it to untap. I'm a good person" -- That's what I'm afraid of. Mind Over Matter is a degenerate combo with Damia for this precise reason. Tapping down lands and creatures is rude but doesn't have nearly the capacity for oppression.

Speaking of Oppression, Oppression. You get hurt by it a lot less than your opponents.

Speaking of getting hurt, I'd recommend some heavy changes to your "protection" category:

-You don't have enough artifacts to make Darksteel Forge good. Ditch it.

-Gaea's Blessing only shuffles your yard in if you mill it. Ditch it. Replace it with Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

-Similarly, Elixir of Immortality, Mnemonic Nexus and Quest for Ancient Secrets aren't worth a card. Use Learn from the Past and Repopulate instead; they replace themselves. Those with Laboratory Maniac and the Eldrazi titan should be enough. Throw in an Eternal Witness if you're still concerned. Heck, throw it in anyway; it's a good card.

Once you have a more refined list, hit me up -- I have some of these cards just lying around.

EDIT: Almost forgot, you're going to want The Gitrog Monster
