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 ...

1 month ago

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.

The_Redpill on The Scarab God || Mill Deck

What makes you want to use The Scarab God? Phenax, God of Deception is a more dedicated mill commander. If you're using Scarab to reanimate stuff then I would add some other reanimate things like Rise from the Grave, cuz he's going to get hated out pretty quick.

Force_of_Willb, I really appreciate the comment and suggestions. I do agree Beacon of Unrest is better than Rise from the Grave. However, the point of this deck isn't really to draw cards. Also, with the amount of tokens this deck has the possibility of making Graveborn Muse could potentially backfire and leave you weakened/dead.

In the early stages Undead Alchemist was under consideration because my friend built a deck around him and it totally works, but after a while I just felt that he didn't quite fit the deck. However, now that The Scarab God is out I feel Undead Alchemist could synergize well with him. This means that Undead Alchemist might finally have a home in this deck.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Beacon of Unrest over Rise from the Grave

Do you find this has enough card draw? what about Cryptbreaker, Graveborn Muse, or Distant Melody

I also am a fan of Undead Alchemist which generates a ton of tokens in multiplayer, but my decks point is to Mill

I've been playing a couple different versions of reanimator for the past few months and seen good success.

Gearhulk Reanimator

4 Color Reanimator

Your list looks like a fun and budget-minded take on the concept. Nice work. Isn't it fun to see the look on people's faces when you refurbish a combustible gearhulk?? Never gets old.

I would suggest the following tweaks:

Rise from the Grave can easily be in this list.

Madcap Experiment is pretty sketchy to me. It works fine in modern with Platinum Emperion, but here it's pretty risky for me. The cost is much more restrictive and you need the mana to support it but Indomitable Creation is pretty fun to play and obviously doesn't run the risk of killing you.

Consider cutting Galvanic Bombardment for Lightning Axe. Axe is all upside for our reanimation shenannegans.

I know it's been said but Nahiri, the Harbinger is busted in this deck. She's so good. And you can get away with playing just 1 or 2 of.

If you can get your hands on Inspiring Vantage you'll want that too. I also prefer Aether Hub even though there isn't much energy production of any at all. The reason is I can play anything at least once with it. It's sometimes enough just to Reunion and get the ball rolling.

I personally like the 4x cathartic reunion and 2 or 3x tormenting voice split. Feels a little more aggressive on looting.

Consider Collective Defiance. It has done work for me. Fixes totally upside down hands where you draw all hulks and no reanimation or loot spells, etc. I have come to really love the card.

Nice work. Always glad to see more reanimator. +1

Hey! I got a deck similar to yours!

Have you look at Collective Brutality? It's always a great card when I can discard a gearhulk.

Blessed Alliance has brought me away from death numerous times. I often find myself forced to hard cast a creature and Blessed Alliance gives me that extra turn.

You might want to try Rise from the Grave instead of Ever After. I personally feel that it flows better with the mana curve. And you have the possibility to steal something from the opponent!
