ColFrogfoot on i 1 v 7'd my friends with this deck

GraveyardTomato Kind of a weird question since 95% of decks don't naturally have flying creatures to win an air battle. A lot of magic is doing your own thing. You have Smallpox for some removal but mostly you're racing flying decks since you can amass many zombies with Waste Not or each enchantment is dealing 3 damage or more which should race the odd flyers that get out before you make them discard it.

XD I forgot to upvote!

Did that, now I actually love this deck. After looking over your meta, only Teferi Chain Veil seems to be the unfavorable matchup, assuming it is the Highest tiered varient, and I still think you have good outs to that deck (Hex Parasite).

24 of your 27 matchups are favorable, 2 of them are balanced, and 1 is unfavorable. That is insane overall.

If this deck doesn't force other players to make major changes to their decks, have them outright ban you and your shenanigans, I think you can expect a lot of wins handed to you, given this deck mulligans well.

A couple suggestions, given you want to spend the money, I have found Liliana of the Veil to have good potential for discard as an engine, and can remove threatening creatures your hate cannot deal with.

Other walkers could help, but overall you have the 4 major ones, with Aminatou being the best ;)

I still feel like other control/stax lists will fall to your ability to crush opposing players mana and hand apart. Painful Quandary is a very clunky card, so I wouldn't run it, but Cunning Lethemancer isn't much better, really hampered by the fact that you run cards like Humility, Necrogen Mists might be the best option for another discard enchantment, but I would prefer something better than that.

I really think just a few cards like Smallpox or Pox could work, really making discard come from nowhere, I think Aminatou might have some good synergy with Words of Waste, but you still go back a card, because Aminatou forces you to put back a card, unless you are empty handed. Liliana Vess forces discard, but it targets the player, is clunky on mana, and is probably better as a tutor.

What do you think. Any more cards like Oppression or Bottomless Pit you think we could run?

I really love your Meren deck. Meren was my first commander deck and I play with a similar strategy. A fun enchantment that I think will fit in your deck is Contamination. It acts as a sac outlet and stops your opponents from playing the game. You can continue playing your black spells and then use meren's ability to bring back any green creatures that you arent able to cast anymore. This is a pet card that I use in my deck but it works really well, Pox. If pox is too much you might want to try Smallpox. I use pox for my deck just because it get rids of lands which in essence you dont need with cards like sakura tribe elder or simply just bringing back big guys from the yard thanks to meren, it takes out creatures which help build up those counters, takes out life to make it easier to kill your opponents, and the best part it lets ya discard your big guys which can be returned thanks to meren.

completely agree, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is instantly powerful in any devotion deck. The only other thing I can suggest is more answers - currently not a huge amount of removal for your opponents threats, and this deck isnt purely aggressive enough to be able to afford to not run more answers. Think Fatal Push, Thoughtseize, Ratchet Bomb. I would also consider Smallpox and of course, the queen Liliana of the Veil

Thank you for this response everyone !

Ouroboros_47 I tried to make a selections of cards that have another purpose than just put things into graveyard. This is the reason why i cut Stitcher's Supplier or Corpse Connoisseur. Delirium Skeins and Zombie Infestation seems good but I don't know if I want to throw a half or a third of my hand to fill up my graveyard. I will consider Smallpox and Darkblast. I think Darkblast can easily fill up the graveyard.

bushido_man96 I like your vision of the deck. If Izoni was Sultai... It would be so powerfull. Anyway... I like the idea of trigger multiple times her ability. Conjurer's Closet seems to be a great addition to the deck. It synergizes with all the ETB ability. Same with Temur Sabertooth(triggers Avenger of Zendikar, Fleshbag Marauder effects, Wood Elves effects). And what do you think about Panharmonicon ? And think Tortured Existence and Phyrexian Reclamation can be better engine recursion than "one shot" recursions like Animate Dead or Eternal Witness. And the deck will be more polyvalent.

Quicksilver Yes, thank you i forgot Altar of Dementia, thank you ;)

So what do you think about this cuts ?

Skullwinder > Tortured Existence

Doom Whisperer > Conjurer's Closet

Ashnod's Altar > Altar of Dementia

Deadbridge Chant > Temur Sabertooth

Jarad's Orders > Panharmonicon

I want add Elvish Piper and Erratic Portal but i don't know what to cut ...

This deck is "budget", but you can include strong cards like :

There are of course stronger decks in Legacy, depends on where you play !

Also, with few adjustments, you can play it in Modern and have more success.

Aphoticate on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

Basically anything can be a stax deck. I don't understand how these guys do it at the high power level. I might be able to see something like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet being considered high power stax as he both disrupts and has a token making ability that has decent synergy with Smallpox effects. Lily and Erebos are just noncreatures with meh card advantage in the zone. Is that really all that's required to be high power cedh? Like, I totally get that they dodge mass creature removal and that's beneficial but, I'm not seeing it as being that powerful a trait. Am I just way off? I might be able to be convinced of Erebos but Lily seems particularly bad to me. In addition to being a pain to flip the reanimator ability is limited. I know I'm biased but as far as mono b reanimator/stax goes Chainer, Dementia Master looks better to me. Maybe not high power worthy but better than Lily.
