Slum Reaper Discussion

I'd add Fleshbag Marauder and Slum Reaper as redundances of Merciless Executioner because the effect works great with your commander.

I'm sure you know these two, still, worths the mention: Cabal Coffers and maybe Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to turn your nonbasics into swamps. Could prove interesting with Filth on your graveyard.

You can get more advantage of your commander's ability if you do the sacrifice: Typical sac outlets like Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Altar of Dementia, Carrion Feeder, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Sadistic Hypnotist, Viscera Seer and also, sac fodder: Bloodghast, Bloodsoaked Champion, Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton.

Also, what do you think about Horobi, Death's Wail?

I strongly agree with PartyJ on the land count and even go further, because WB can be slow on ramp, you need mana rocks:

On the ramp side, there are a few things that can get you lands, but some can be expensive:

Also, any deck running black should include Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers and maybe, Expedition Map to find them.

Besides all the above in my opinion this deck needs a direction on what you want to do with it, namely answering the questions What does this deck do? and How does it wins by doing that?

I also sort of agree with shaftdiggity's suggestion. Since your commander has a low CMC, and also is not very easy to deal with, you can rely on him staying on the battlefield and using his ability to get your creatures back from your graveyard. So, one way to go is by searching for creatures with relatively low CMC and/or good Enter the Battlefield effects, combined with Sacrifice Outlets.

These are some ETB examples:

These need to be used with an available Sac Outlet:

The way to play these cards goes like this: As they enter the battlefield, their first ability triggers and you get to exile somethin. Then, in response (or when the ability is on the stack but hasn't resolved yet you sacrifice the creature. Hence, the second ability will go to the stack, but since the first one hasn't resolved yet, there is nothing to return from exile. The first ability will then resolve, exiling something permanently.

Some good Sac Outlets exmples:

Forcing your opponents to sacrifice with you is very good:

I didn't realize, but Vigor is absolutely fantastic for Kresh. Neat!

One question: How often do you need Innocent Blood to be a 1-mana kill spell? Something like Slum Reaper might work better (basically a third Fleshbag).

On the other hand Meren gets out of hand extremely quickly because there's no way to interact with the experience counters. Expect that someone's going to realize like I did that the weakest link of the Meren deck is Meren and will just remove her every time. If you want to keep Meren casual my recommendation is that you avoid playing anything with a Slum Reaper type effect.

All that said though I am biased because I've played against Meren a lot and have had long discussions with my friend about his decks where the best thing I can do is make sure he never keeps his commander. You don't have to go that competitive.

You definitely need Spore Frog and Fleshbag Marauder and Slum Reaper work as well. Check out my deck if you want. It's somewhat budget so you might find some stuff. I have Vraska the Unseen as a finisher too. As well as Grey Merchant of Asphodel which you might want to add

I have some suggestions. I have had my meren deck since she first cam out so mine is tuned pretty well. And what I've found that you should consider is token control. That is the one thing that can beat meren. Such things as Virulent Plague and Archfiend of Depravity help with that tremendously. you might want to throw in Slum Reaper + Merciless Executioner + Fleshbag Marauder they are just great at reoccurring. Also Grave Pact + Dictate of Erebos never hurt. I also love the card Woodland Bellower it's a great search for Spore Frog haha just suggestions but u may want to play a different style then that. If you like these check out my meren deck and you might find some more suggestions. First upvot!

KeelHaul10, Doomgape is incredibly expensive at 7 mana. This deck is quite stax-y and by the time this guy can be cast, my creatures (during an average match) will outrank Doomgape by about a total of 100 power, give or take a few, which makes Doomgape a 7 mana trampler (which is quite useless as cards like Slum Reaper will thin the enemies board) with a sac trigger every upkeep. There are better cards that provide a sac trigger every upkeep (Like Smothering Abomination). All in all, Doomgapes only "upside" is that life gain, and even then not a big one as most fodder will be 1/1's
