My friend swears by Deadbridge Chant in his Meren deck. Doomgape is also consistently a top player in his. Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath is fun, but not always the best. Constantly recurring Mycoloth leads to things getting out of control quickly. Strionic Resonator for double meren triggers.

I can believe i forgot to recommend a few cards to get more uses out of your walkers

Oath of Teferi, The Chain Veil, Rings of Brighthearth, and Teferi, Temporal Archmage.

And Strionic Resonator is a worse panharmonica, but still gives more ETB effects

cough cough Crystal Shard, Erratic Portal, Strionic Resonator cough cough, but seriously though I think I'll just stop building my Yuriko deck right now. THIS is my kind of commander.

The best part is you can just drop her back into the command zone. Plus the politics associated with an opponent having 2 hit counters on them is amazing. Do they play a creature or not?

enter image description here - T4. I'm not impressed with this card, but you can do cute shenanigans with Clones (especially Sakashima), Strionic Resonator, and Bounce effects. Being matchup dependent really hurts this card. Even then, it is really slow and marginal advantage at best.

First off I would like to thank you rj_pico for spending you time to help me better my deck. Regarding the concern of Trial of Knowledge not being that good I would more often than not agree with that statement. But I believe that this deck is an exception mainly by Brago, King Eternal flickers. You draw six cards and get rid of two of the worst cards in your hand. Or perhaps even the best cards, and afterwards cheating them out with cards like Karmic Guide, Reveillark or even Sun Titan. Or just get it back in our hand by casting Archaeomancer.

I also agree that Duplicant would be a very nice inclusion, by the flickers of Brago, King Eternal, Deadeye Navigator and others. And it would be awesome to cheat him out with Recruiter of the Guard! At this moment i do have Spine of Ish Sah because he targets all permanents. And when you get the infinite combo with Strionic Resonator and at least 2 mana by one or two artifacts, you basically will lock the game and win. But I will defenetly try and make some room for Duplicant.

I would also like to add that If you would like a better overview of the perpuse of the individual cards I have created a custom category list. You can find it in the bottom of "Groups". Thanks again

No. Since Amulate of vigor is a triggered ability Stoney silence has no effect on it.

An activated ability is always in this format "(cost): [effect]." for example Strionic Resonator

A triggered ability follows this format: "(Trigger condition), [effect].” Example: Purphoros, God of the Forge

Your first thought was the right one. The triggered ability from Angel of Serenity in your example doesn't get copied.

When a spell or ability is countered, it gets removed from the stack. That means the Strionic Resonator's ability in your example doesn't have any legal targets anymore. It will also get countered by the rules when it starts to try to resolve.

The ruling you found tells you what happens when Strionic Resonator's ability resolves. In order to resolve successfully, it needs a valid target. Really, the ruling is explaining that Strionic Resonator doesn't give Angel of Serenity another instance of its "when [this] enters the battlefield..." ability.

In play I have a Strionic Resonator.

I cast Angel of Serenity.

In response I activate the Resonator's ability targeting the Angel's ability and then pass priority.

My opponent casts Disallow targeting the original triggered ability.

At first I thought I would lose both triggered abilities because if the original source is countered there's no valid target for the resonator to copy. But then I saw these rulings:

"Strionic Resonator targets a triggered ability that has triggered and is on the stack and creates another instance of that ability on the stack. It doesn’t cause any object to gain an ability."

Does this mean I still get one trigger even if the ability is stifled?
