Rise from the Grave Discussion

alias42 on Scion of the Ur dragon EDH deck

Maybe you could run cards like Flickerform or Deadeye Navigator with a couple reanimator effects such as Rise from the Grave. Tutor bladewing into your gy, reanimate him, then flicker him every turn to bring back whatever dragon you got into your gy with scion permanently

Thanks for the awesome suggestions DerpDeer. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is definelty a nice card just a little too expensive. Zombie Apocalypse looks really fun and could definetly be added - can be really good in multiplayer matches. Replacing Dread Wanderer for Gravecrawler is definetly a upgrade just a little more pricey, but i will definetly look out for them. Rise from the Grave maybe seem a little slow but maybe could be added to the sideboard against decks with a lot of big creatures.

Adding Army of the Damned and replacing Grasp of Darkness for Tragic Slip is something i have to think a little more over :)

So I know you're trying to splash in blue, but I don't think there are enough good blue cards good with zombies to do that. Also, I think adding Army of the Damned into your mainboard would help you out a lot, especially if you had Endless Ranks of the Dead out. Another few suggestions I have are to switch out Grasp of Darkness with Tragic Slip, as a lot of creatures are going to die so you can take out bigger creatures for less mana, and also consider switching out Dread Wanderer for Gravecrawler as well. Instead of using Cemetery Recruitment, if you're only using it to get Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, you could use Raise Dead. And also you could use Zombie Apocalypse, maybe Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and probably also a Rise from the Grave. None of these cards are too expensive, with the exception of Mikaeus, but I think they can help your deck out a lot more.

What about some Cemetery Reaper or Gisa and Geralf? I sadly need to say that i dont like Stir the Sands because it is so expensive, also if you cycle it its meh in my eyes. Also Rise from the Grave could be swaped with Zombify for a cheaper revive if you want. I hate expensive cards because often you dont have enough mana to play more then one card in a bad situation...

First of all if you want to get competitive keep in mind steadiness of the deck, more copies of the cards you are playing. This doesn't look like a control deck and you are planning to attack with a crap ton of zombies, so the faster you can do that the better. I would take out Gisa and Geralf, Noosegraf Mob and Drunau Corpse Trawler from the creatures, because they are expensive to cast in an aggro deck and Rise from the Tides, Rise from the Grave and Stir the Sands because you are neither throwing things in the trash nor casting a lot instants or sorceries. Your removal is actually well based and Time to Reflect just seems like an over performer in this deck.

Turn Aside seems weird but functional, just take into consideration that mass removals in standard are not targeted, so you may run into troubles.

If you want to get into the competitive scene there's actually not a better thing than to play against other guys and find the common solutions, maybe targeted removal, maybe more creatures, don't build your deck to win against a single deck, that's why sideboard exists.

I would suggest you to add more cheap creatures to keep pressuring your opponents by attacking every turn like Doomed Dissenter.

Anyway, in the end it is your deck, don't hesitate to add cards that you want to play with or build around some cards, it just feels better if you have fun playing your deck with a strategy that you came up with.

Xynarth on Meren, Are You Ready?

De un, tu as trop peu de lands. Monte le nombre total 37. a serait ma premire suggestion.

Deuximement, tu joues vert; o donc est le ramp? Tu veux avoir un dbut un peu plus explosif pour avoir Meren sur le board le plus tt possible, ou du moins, t'assurer d'avoir assez de mana pour toujours la caster. Je ne te dis pas de mettre toutes les cartes, mais deux-trois a ne serait pas mauvais. Golgari Signet c'est quasiment un must pour te corriger dans tes couleurs si jamais tu fais une btise.

Ramp/Mana Fix : Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, Cultivate, Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, Explosive Vegetation,Garruk Wildspeaker, Golgari Signet

Il y a des meilleurs sac outlets qu'Altar of Dementia. Personnellement je runnerais plutt Carrion Feeder ou Yahenni, Undying Partisan. Ce sont des cratures gnantes/para-tonnerres et c'est dj plus synergique.

Living Death je l'utilise comme un anti-wipe. Si je viens de me faire clear le board, a me permet de tout ramener, Meren incluse, tout en liminant le board d'un autre (potentiellement). N'importe quel reanimator deck devrait le jouer selon moi.

Mimic Vat c'est juste fun. a te permet de ramener non seulement ton stock, mais aussi celui des adversaires, sans pour autant nuire Meren. Je pense toujours des cratures comme Avenger of Zendikar, Craterhoof, Hornet Queen qui ont des gros ETB. a te permet une certaine flexibilit si jamais Meren n'est plus sur le board.

Sac/Utility : Eldritch Evolution, Carrion Feeder, Viscera Seer, Living Death, Mimic Vat, Jarad's Orders, Hangarback Walker

On en parlait d'ETB. Je mettrais dfinitivement les 3 ici. Acidic Slime te permet de controller le board de l'adversaire, mme chose pour le Gearhulk, quelque chose que ton deck ne fait pas assez selon moi. En 1v1 c'est pas trop grave, mais en multi, a va te manquer ne pas avoir rien pour grer tes adversaires. Mycoloth te permet de trigger Meren tout en gardant un board impressionant. Pas MVP, mais il peut faire des dgts en pompant Meren, ou mme juste seul.

ETB Effects : Acidic Slime, Noxious Gearhulk, Mycoloth

Control. Grer le board state pour qu'on vienne pas dtruire le tien. Quelques cartes qui peuvent faire la diffrence en empchant un joueur de devenir trop gros. Tu as besoin de flexibilit, Putrefy que tu as dj est un bon exemple.

Control : Krosan Grip, Sudden Spoiling, Naturalize, Ruinous Path, Hero's Downfall, Unravel the Aether

L on tombe dans de quoi que j'adore avoir en tant que reanimator. Des mass draw. Tu veux que ta main soit pleine en tout temps. C'est pas grave si tu as trop de cartes, tu discarderas tes monstres pour les ramener avec Meren de toute faon. a te permet d'avoir tes rponses si jamais quelqu'un tente de prendre le dessus notamment. Quelques uns l-dedans ont une particulirement bonne synergie avec Meren. Momentous, un instant, magnifique, je l'utilise gnralement pour en profiter du fait qu'on vient de dtruire mon commander. 4MC pour 4 cartes si tu sac une Meren qui s'en va dj au cimetire, pas un mauvais trade. Reprocess te permet de trigger Meren. Greater Good te permet de trigger Meren en plus d'alimenter ton graveyard avec des cratures. L'ide c'est d'avoir de la synergie avec ce que tu joues.

Draw : Soul's Majesty, Rishkar's Expertise, Greater Good, Reprocess, Phyrexian Arena, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Momentous Fall, Sylvan Library

L on tombe dans le malheur d'avoir un deck qui est trs focus sur un commander troublant. On a deux choix, soit tu dvies de Meren en jouant plus de cartes qui reanimate (ex. Animate Dead, Rise from the Grave, Dance of the Dead,etc) ou tu joues plus de protection. Si tu peux faire les deux, tant mieux.

Protection : Heroic Intervention, Darksteel Plate, Swiftfoot Boots

Je pense a couvre pas mal toutes les ides que j'avais pour ton deck. C'est sr qu'il y a plein de cartes que tu pourrais rajouter, mais c'est quoi enlever qui finit par tre le problme.

Moi j'ai quelques cartes que j'enlverais de ta liste :

Sensei's Divining Top

Mulch

Triumph of the Hordes (drle quand a marche, mais il y a mieux selon moi).

Altar of Dementia

Evolutionary Leap (y indiqu 2 fois)

Song of the Dryads (cool quand tu joues contre quelqu'un qui ne run pas du anti enchantement, ce qui est trs rare. T'as accs du noir. Joues un vrai anti-crature tant qu' y tre)

Vow of Malice (mme chose que Song).

Neotrup on Question concerning a a cards ...

A card's color is normally determined by it's casting cost. Any black symbol in the casting cost, such as in Olivia, Mobilized for War's cost (she's black-red), will normally make a card black. If a card has a color indicator located left of the type line, like Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip, it uses that to determine color instead (he's black). If a card has an ability that redefines it's color, like Bearer of Silence, it uses that to determine color (it's colorless). If an ability of a spell or permanent redefines color, like Rise from the Grave or Darkest Hour, that color is used instead of or in addition to the color(s) of the card. Rise from the Grave would make Thada Adel, Acquisitor blue-black, Darkest Hour would make all creatures on both sides of the field just black.
