Some cards that I use in my Meren deck that I get a ton of mileage out of:

Birthing Pod - Not the cheapest but if you've only been playing for 1-2 months and you've already got Grave Pact, etc. it should be in reach. Great to tutor up/upgrade to the next creature of need while building up exp counters. Eldritch Evolution is a cheaper one shot of this.

Noxious Gearhulk - Removal and lifegain on a decent beater.

Sidisi, Undead Vizier - Again, not the cheapest but having a Demonic Tutor to keep bringing back... Rune-Scarred Demon can fit but I like having the additional sacrifice and cheaper CMC.

Doom Whisperer - Cheap flyer that can fill your graveyard with creatures to recur.

Needs Elixir of Immortality because estus flask. Demons and dragons share colors with Mardu. Perhaps Rune-Scarred Demon or Razaketh, the Foulblooded to synergize with all the tokens you could make?

I think your top-end needs at least 1 or 2 more big spells or creatures. Bane of Progress , Woodland Bellower , Greenwarden of Murasa , Rune-Scarred Demon - all of these are good value. Your pod/yisan chains are missing top-end payoffs like these.

I also think you can afford to play Farseek and Nissa's Pilgrimage .

Your deck has a lot of low-value cards, like Order of Midnight and Hypnotic Specter . These cards just don't function well in EDH in my opinion, and are better left to conventional 60-card Magic.

Tata Elixir is there so that when I Primal Surge I don't lose the game. If Plaguecrafter gets put on the battlefield then I'll have to sac which will draw from Korvold and result in me losing. Additionally if someone can destroy my board at instant speed like Rout then I can pop the elixir to shuffle all the creatures back and the primal surge, then use Ring of Three Wishes to tutor primal surge and recast it again. The elixir doesn't do much on its own but it's a needed insurance policy for once my surge goes off. As far as the lockets I just like them better 1. because with Korvold it draws me 3 cards for 3 mana and 2. because they're just pet cards meaning I like them despite being sub optimal. As far as win cons, I can with with commander damage, tokens, getting Garruk's emblem, and taking extra combats with Hellkite Charger . I appreciate the suggestions and will start looking for a slot to add in Rune-Scarred Demon since that's another permanent based tutor to find primal surge.

I would cut lockets for better rocks: Commander's Sphere and Mind Stone come to mind. Expedition Map and Wayfarer's Bauble can also replace some of the worse artifacts, like Elixir of Immortality .

I think your deck lacks wincons aside from Primal Surge . Sheoldred, the Whispering One and Rune-Scarred Demon both strike me very valuable creatures - the demon in particular to tutor for Primal Surge .

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Hi weezel,

You're right Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard need a Sneak Attack line to make sense. I'll do some more research next week, see if there's something else.

I'm hoping for a Mox Diamond maybe for Xmas, also sold some more prize pack cards, getting close. Need 3 Mox Diamond for decks, and still needing a Gaea's Cradle . Chains of Mephistopheles is nice, if I had one would play it, it's low on the acquireboard though with it's price tag.

Aven Mindcensor hoping to slow down other players tutoring, we'll see how it goes.

Decided to give Dockside Extortionist a go, I'm worried he'll be too slow, but if he can pull me 4-6 mana on T2 will be ok, have to see. I've committed to the testing of him, threw Corpse Dance in there to get the Dockside Extortionist + Corpse Dance + Goblin Bombardment line (a 4th). Hoping he works. If he works, but Corpse Dance too high CMC, I'll have to decide if he viable on his own, I suspect he is.

Reveillark combod with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker but as you know Buried Alive + Reanimate or Animate Dead is the primary win-con and almost exclusively used unless stopped somehow. Most games, just go for it, if stopped, probably no time to get another shot as someone else will combo same/next turn.

Still haven't used the Worldgorger Dragon , it's a little more mana friendly than Reveillark in it's Entomb + Animate Dead . It can generate the infinite mana to play a Razaketh, the Foulblooded (from hand) and Kaalia of the Vast to sac for a Leonin Relic-Warder win-con. He also works with guys like Rune-Scarred Demon to draw whole library, or Angel of Despair to destroy all opponents permanents, then kill herself before she kills all your permanents, Karmic Guide return all your creatures. Also, can instant tutor up a Bogardan Hellkite to win. I dunno though, it's a 3rd line. It annoys me if pushed a CMC3 recurssion, in Necromancy into the deck, and with Corpse Dance for the Dockside Extortionist test, CMC getting out of control. Still working on rounding it out for the new test cards.

Hoping for a Mox Diamond but also just sell a few more cards, so it's imminent. Play Chains of Mephistopheles if you have one.

Giving up on Doomsday , cheapest non- Kaalia of the Vast is CMC6. Some play Insidious Dreams as an instant alternative, but CMC4, as well as have to have cards to discard, can't see it being fast enough.
