Kirihara on Meren of Clan Combo

4 days ago

Update:

Removed:

Replaced By:

Why?
More combo options with Gitrog, to pull off wins with recurring Tainted Strike over and over, making massive amounts of tokens with by recurring World Shaper with either Titania or Turntimber Sower or Rampaging Baloths. I am very tempted to make TGM the Commander, but I lack discard outlets and so Meren remains most value for money as commander currently.

Here are some budget cards that are in my pile to build something similar:
Oversold Cemetery -recursion.
Smothering Abomination card draw.
Ravenous Chupacabra fun in funeral when repeayed.
Whisper, Blood Liturgist recursion that triggers death triggers two times.
Helm of Possession board control - I have left it untapped with tokens as a deterrent to being attacked.
Dawn of the Dead recursion - remember to sac the creature before end of turn.
Ogre Slumlord let's make tokens fun again.
Wonder flying is great for the whole family(team).
Priest of the Blood Rite cast, get 5/5 token, sac, repeat.
Shriekmaw removal that's good with creature recursion
Duplicant exiles indestructible creatures.
Torgaar, Famine Incarnate - for the opponent who likes to get way too much life.

Hope something in this list is helpful. Also Noxious Gearhulk might be good in the deck, but is not in my pile as I don't have an extra one ATM.

Grimgrin is a great card for deckbuilding as he can be used in so many different ways. I'm currently using him as a finisher and sac. outlet in a combo/control/reanimation shell EDH Challenge: Feed the Grimgrin!.

Great way to start is to use it as a value generator, feed him with creatures that doesn't care about dying and smash face: any self-reccuring creature (Gravecrawler, Reassembling Skeleton); anything with undying or persist (Geralf's Messenger, Glen Elendra Archmage; evoke works too as Riverdare mentioned (Mulldrifter, Shriekmaw); creatures with ETB or die triggers (Solemn Simulacrum); ones that give bonuses from graveyard (Wonder); etc. Also throw in something that benefits from creatures dying (Blood Artist, Grave Pact, Skullclamp, Mimic Vat...).

There are also some possible infinite combos with him if you are into that: Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Necrotic Ooze + Bloodline Keeper  Flip or Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Rooftop Storm + Gravecrawler.

APPLE01DOJ So to answer your question about Jarad, I usually bring him in against decks where Shriekmaw is dead and non of my other sideboard cards are relevant. Jarad could definitely be in the main board but he is slow. I have really tightened this list up and he was a tough cut but I have chosen to keep him around in the board. Mausoleum Secrets can't find my big creatures since they aren't black so I wouldn't play it in this deck, but could be good in a more black version. Slaughterhorn is cool, sort of like Shriekmaw a bit but is a pump spell rather than a removal spell. Doesn't give anything trample though which would be the only reason I would play a card like that since usually the creatures get big enough as it is.

Hey man you commented on my deck that had a similar feel to it. If I did my math correctly, you have 57 cards only so far in the main board as of what I am viewing on 1/02/2019. 18 lands is probably fine since your highest cmc is 2. I would start by cutting the 3 Grisly Salvage. You have so many other discard outlets you should be fine cutting this, plus Commune with the Gods is obviously superior since it finds an enchantment. By cutting that, you will have 6 cards cards to add that should up your creature count to at least 30 counting the 4 Dryad arbors. I would for sure use a 4x Shriekmaw since it is a creature and also a removal spell, which you don't have as of now. I would also add something like Reviving Melody because their could be a situation where you throw all your wreaths into the GY and need to bring an enchantment back.

Hope that helps!

I recommend to add Shriekmaw and Phyrexian Obliterator.

You're a bit into the wrong color for self-sacrifice style play. And going by your description, Death's Shadow sounds like it'd be up your alley. A reason for you to hurt yourself while also being the big thing that kills the opponent.

Cards like Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Eternal Witness, Shriekmaw, Reveillark, Mulldrifter, Find / Finality, Golgari Findbroker, Lotleth Giant, Unburial Rites, Living End, are all relatively decent with the whole sacrifice theme
