Sewer Nemesis Discussion

Replaced Retreat to Hagra with Life from the Loam and Sewer Nemesis with Rampaging Baloths. Although Sewer Nemesis is usually a huge creature, I felt that it will do much more in a graveyard based deck such as Meren of Clan Nel Toth since I have no problem targetting myself.

I forgot to suggest Expedition Map that card is important to be able to get your good lands more often. And Palace Siege is another great way to refill your hand each turn to use Greel more easily. I think Mutilate is great in your deck since you actually have very few creatures to worry about killing. Now that I'm looking for cuts maybe forget the Mind Sludge suggestion i made...because my first inclination is getting rid of 1 use discard spells like it and Duress and Persecute. They seem unnecessary with so many other repeatable discard effects in addition to your commander's ability. Other cuts and reasons... Whip of Erebos it exiles and you don't have many creatures to use, Feast on the Fallen there's more efficient ways to kill opponents, Mindcrank mill strategies don't work unless you are all in, Contamination not enough fodder to sacrifice to make it stick, Temporal Extortion opponent always chooses life every time...I guess that could be good still, Sangromancer is just a life gain spell basically, & Sewer Nemesis is okay as a big creature but the mill angle seems pointless. Cheers :D

I'vs found great success with cards like Mortivore and Sewer Nemesis that get bigger the more you mill, and mill more the bigger they are. Obviously, you already have the best one in Consuming Aberration.

Sutured Ghoul could be a pretty good late game finish by exiling all the dead defender creatures.

@ amh62993 - This deck is horrific!

...bad puns aside, allow me to suggest a few things for your consideration.

Honorable Mentions:

Good luck, and happy deck-teching!

This is a super cool deck. Lot of fun. One thing that im not sure how you feel about, but Phenax, God of Deception is very fitting along with cards like Nighthowler, Mortivore, Sewer Nemesis, etc. I've had great luck with it (especially if i have a token or two from Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. Phenax makes it way easier and more consistent to trigger Sidisi).

What's interesting is with this layout you have here, Sidisi doesn't make or break the deck. A lot of options here for win conditions. Great stuff.

My favorite so far is to Traumatize myself, sack two lands for Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Flashback Dread Return for Mortivore or Nighthowler (sometimes both or Body Double) and mill them with Phenax, God of Deception tap trigger or kill them with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord mana ability.

Sewer Nemesis isn't modern legal, but otherwise I like it a lot. +1

Rzepkanut on Call a Plumber - Your cards are clogging the drain

Hey, nice mill deck :) always wanted to build one of these. One of my favorite words to find on a magic card is "whenever". With that in mind I got a few card ideas to share:

Sewer Nemesis, Hedron Crab, Riddlekeeper, Illusionist's Bracers, Paradox Engine, Hollowsage, Arbiter of the Ideal, Tidal Force, Dramatic Reversal, Intellectual Offering, Breaking Wave, Rings of Brighthearth

Happy gathering!
