Mortiferus_Rosa on Meren's So Damn Good in the Sac

I have a bunch of suggestions although i dont quite have the time to type them all up. I will lead off with one for now. Use Bone Shredder instead of Shriekmaw. It has a lower CMC so you can Meren it out sooner and you can reuse it easier by not paying the echo cost.

Shriekmaw has powerful synergy with Meren and her ability; repeatedly cast it for its evoke cost to gain experience, then return to hand with Meren until you have five experience counters, with a slew of dead creatures in its wake.

Butcher of Malakir annihilates opponents' boards with all of the sacrificing and recurring you're doing.

Spore Frog is a recurrable Fog effect that buys you several turns and experience counters in the early game.

Cmasa435 on Meren Deck Card Suggestions

3 weeks ago

Hello everyone, another irritating request for experienced help here. Im currently working on putting together a list (not on tappedout yet, just in the planning stages right now) for Meren of Clan Nel Toth and I am looking for some card suggestions. Just to say off the bat, Im not looking to create a super Staxy version of Meren (though some stax would be fine), even though that looks awesome, I want to focus more on her pulling amazing stuff out of the grave, and also have a heavy emphasis on sacing stuff, both on my side and a forced one for the opponents. Going through other Meren lists, I see the basically obligatory stuff, i.e., Merciless Executioner, Fleshbag Marauder, Spore Frog, Shriekmaw, Caustic Caterpillar, Birthing Pod, Dictate of Erebos, all the good stuff. But Im wondering if there are any fringe cards that are just bonkers with her, or amazing things that I just stupidly missed. Also, please nothing crazy pricey, Im a poor poor college student so I cant really afford the awesome stuff. So while its not all that smart to put in a price limit, like $10 max for card price, unless its basically God Mode in a card, then screw price. Thanks in advance for any advice given, Meren looks absolutely amazing and I really want to make a deck that will do her justice without having to make me start turning tricks to pay for it.

Edit: Got a Decklist up and running, just a basic shell thus far so I'm probably missing a good amount of things and probably have some unneeded cards in it. Anywho, deck list is Meren's gonna Sac ya

For ETB destroy effects:

Bone Shredder


Wei Assassins


Serpent Assassin

Woodripper seems like it would be really good for you as well.

Wouldn't Tymna the Weaver combo better as a commander with Kydele?

Since you are running both Archeomancer and Ghostly Flicker, add a Palinchron for infinite mana (Great Whale and Peregrine Drake are the budget options). They also go well with Eldrazi Displacer and Deadeye Navigator.

Reveillark and Karmic Guide are best reanimate enablers and fits better in the flicker package.

I'd stick with the ETB/flicker and Reanimator plan. Sounds really powerful, and decks like Roon have prove it right. Mulldrifter is pretty good for that deck, and Shriekmaw can be very helpful. Try to cut the creatures that don't have a ETB ability unless they are vital for the deck. Also, add more creatures with ETB that searches for lands, like Wood Elves or Solemn Simulacrum.

Nice delver conception, i would recommand to play are second one Terminate( with all the Trondrazi flooting around) and perhaps one Shriekmaw in the sideboard since you play Liliana, the Last Hope and Kolaghan's Command.+1

greyninja on Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder I N S A N E

+1 from me. Yidris is rad. Thanks for +1ing my deck!

I like your inclusion of stuff like Shriekmaw, Mulldrifter, etc that get extra value points. Bring to Light is neat. Grozoth is f'n Grozoth. What're your favorite targets for both BtL and Groz? Jace, the Mind Sculptor has amazing synergy. Dropping things from your hand to topdeck... then cascade into it mwahaha

With so many creatures in here, if you can can drop $20+, Animar, Soul of Elements is the jam. He's my #1 favorite commander. You'll explode if you can attack w yidris+animar every turn. Shaman of the Great Hunt makes them vampires +1/+1

I have noncreature permanents I could suggest, but that doesn't seem to be your angle(?) Savage Ventmaw will fit your bill. Along with Urabrask and Maelstrom Wanderer to hit the ground running (hit the air running?). There's a bunch of infinite combat step combos with the ventmaw and Aggravated Assault, etc

I'm sure you'll have fun w it! Cheers!

Really love the deck. Just seems a shame that you can't get more use out of your commander. If it's only good to potentially kill something in combination with Kiki-Jiki or Splinter Twin then it's really a waste. Have you considered Child of Alara? Could be a decent reset button in case your opponents out-pace you. Or maybe Horde of Notions? He has 3 relevant keywords and can brink back elementals like Mulldrifter and Reveillark. Plus with him you could consider adding cards like Shriekmaw, Tyrant of Discord, AEthersnipe and Avenger of Zendikar who all have very relevant ETB triggers. And maybe Maelstrom Wanderer who can help you get more things on the field and give everything haste.
