Skullbriar, the Walking Grave Discussion

Sounds to me that you are pretty invested in as well as drawn to golgari, so my suggestion to speed up the game you are already trying to play would be to go with Skullbriar, the Walking Grave as your commander. Green and black give you plenty of cheap ramp, and running a counter theme will buff him that much faster. As your commander, no one can remove his counters unless they play something random like Vampire Hexmage or Thief of Blood, as it's easy to recur him from the command zone multiple times.

Beyond that, Meren still fits in great with the theme, and stuff like Inspiring Call, Armorcraft Judge, Heroic Intervention, Rush of Vitality, Verdurous Gearhulk and Kalonian Hydra are pretty budget friendly and super effective with him. Add some other cheap buffs and mana dorks and you'll be pounding opponents faces after just a couple turns.

Good luck with your build.

I always love to play Meren, she is one of the most overpowered commanders. Yet there are a couple of must-have-cards that you don't seem to play. I highly recommend Mikaeus, the Unhallowed! He is insane...Also don't really see, why you would play Winding Constrictor or Skullbriar, the Walking Grave... You should consider to swap them out for Evolutionary Leap and Birthing Pod, since I think you don't have many controlled say-outlets.

The Great Aurora, Sepulchral Primordial, Palace Siege is versatile, Nether Traitor 40 turn clock, Greenwarden of Murasa, Ever After, Praetor's Counsel.

Some nonbudget options that are REALLY GOOD: Lord of Extinction, Skullbriar, the Walking Grave, Damnation, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Sheoldred, Whispering One.

These are just a few suggestions, and I hope they help! Happy deckbuilding!

Don't take the creatures back to your hand from the grave but reanimate them directly onto the battlefield, then work with Skullbriar, the Walking Grave. That's how I do it in my Ghave build (that contains Reyhan as well).
