Rune-Scarred Demon Discussion

vincilios on Rakdos, Lord of Combos

I really like your list of combos, but I don't understand why not Sidisi, Undead Vizier isn't on your list.

She can tutor Artisan of Kozilek, who return she and tutor Razaketh, the Foulblooded, who will have a creature (Artisan of Kozilek) to sacrifice and tutor whatever.

She is so much better, in this case, than Rune-Scarred Demon, and you can have both in your deck if it the case.

Razulghul on Liliana, Zombie or good stuff?

Hi all, I'm working on a stax/discard/Pox list for Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip and I'm curious what people think is better Zombie tribal or good stuff? They are both pretty similar builds as far as non-creature cards go here are the main differnces:

Zombie Strengths:

Primarily zombie tribal has the advantage of numerous Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar combos(less reliable in good stuff builds), Patriarch's Bidding and Endless Ranks of the Dead(to offset Smokestack).

Good stuff is pretty self explanatory Massacre Wurm, Rune-Scarred Demon, Bloodghast, Bitterblossom etc.

Just looking for any opinions, thanks!

Hi bro, I like your deck but I don't get the 50 Shadowborn Apostle's, if you dont have any demons, there are two that comes to my mind right now: Rune-Scarred Demon and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. With any of these you can come a step closer to your combo. =)

Satyr Wayfinder over Balustrade Spy

Thragtusk over Hollowhenge Scavenger (if you feel you need need the lifegain)

Living Death or Wake the Dead over Champion of Stray Souls

direct budget swaps that are better most of the time.

I would say your curve is a tad high (average 4.03 atm, even with over 100 this is problematic). Depending on the speed of your meta you will get left behind on experience counters and setup if you can't play anything. So more value 2 drops and 3 drops will smooth the deck out.

Spore Frog

Wood Elves

Viscera Seer

Yahenni, Undying Partisan

I would also recommend Shadowborn Demon quite heavily in any meren deck. Surprise catch most kill with a slow sac outlet in a pinch (with a 5/6 flying body when you are adequately set up).

A question you want to ask yourself while cutting/swapping with this deck is: What do I want my mid/late game to look like?

Do you want combos? (Death's Presence, Corpsejack Menace, Butcher of Malakir)

Do you want tutor? (Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Protean Hulk, Rune-Scarred Demon

Do you want fatty beats? (Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, etc)

Is this deck focused more on multiplayer amongst friends, store multiplayer, or 1v1?

Hey, very insightful deck description, haha. Nice budget version.

I suggest some one drop mana dorks which let you cast Meren as early as turn three. Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic and Elves of Deep Shadow. If you aren't using these dorks to ramp then use them as sac fodder to build experience counters faster.

Thragtusk is good value. Rune-Scarred Demon or Razaketh, the Foulblooded are nice top-end with Meren. Sadistic Hypnotist is a great free sac outlet.
