JMCraig that's is the first 49 creature list that I find realy interesting!! But Realy!! I was seing the Ainok question and instead of him my choice come to Sylvok Replica that you may tutor, at bad, even with Fabricate. So I would ask your question of what do you think about it and about Opposition. Maybe is becouse I love this card, but the advantage it give is incredible and with 49 it can do much more than in my list. From animar to animar players can I ask your opinion on what you woul cut from my Animar, Soul of Victorious for Vizier of the Menagerie that I totaly forgot of its printing?? +1 From me!!

Hi Caeruleus; thanks for your suggestions. No +1 though? Such a shame ;) I had Reclamation Sage and Sylvok Replica in here before, along with the other enchantment/artifact removal stuff and decided to remove them. Reason: the deck already had plenty of other ways to deal with artifacts/enchantments.
I'm not sure what to think about the Dilligent Farmhand suggestion. What the hell is 'Muscle Burst'?

I appreciate this deck: the list looks pretty enjoyable. I just have a few of cards I think should be cut in favour of more interesting cards. If you want to keep the effect I've made some suggestions for alternatives in the slots; but really you could take those slots and put anything in there.
- Creakwood Liege: This just anthems and generates a token each turn. You're missing Reclamation Sage or Sylvok Replica both of which give you some more control, and recurr.
- Vulturous Zombie: This is just a big fat flier. Any demon or similar, perhaps Rune-Scarred Demon, but really, you could go with anything; Devouring Strossus is a bit of fun
- Sylvan Caryatid: 2 mana mana dork that lets you get down Meren turn 3. Perhaps try Diligent Farmhand as interacts far better with Meren.
Happy Brewing & dream big! :)

I will keep those in mind. Caustic Caterpillar and Sylvok Replica and the Maulfist Revolutionary is invaluable to me to say the least. However, Winding Constrictor doesn't seem all that powerful in there because I do not run very many counters in the deck.
Thank you for the help. I've been wondering if there were more removal cards on creatures. Thank you very much for showing me.

Caustic Caterpillar and Sylvok Replica are two fantastic creatures for removing artifacts and enchantments and controlling threats. The Caterpillar is good early because of its low cmc, and the Replica shines later with its low activation cost. The fact that they can sacrifice themselves is invaluable.
If you find yourself short on field wipes, Golgari gives you access to two fantastic ones. Pernicious Deed and Gaze of Granite are two controllable field wipes that you can often play to your total advantage.

I've been playing my version of Mazirek (Mazirek, Shaman of the Swarm ($60 budget)) for a while and have some ideas for a non-budget build.
First off, is 35 lands enough? Seems like your curve goes a little high.
Retribution of the Ancients is really good when you start rolling
Sylvan Safekeeper is another all-star! no spot removal ruining your day and you can sac lands to alpha somebody
Smallpox can be really good. plus two counters per player with a creature
Reyhan, Last of the Abzan shuffles around counters for alpha strike kills
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord can kill the whole table
Noosegraf Mob is an army in a refilling can
Wave of Vitriol is a game ender
Some cards I think could be cut are
Killing Wave this is a cool card i haven't played with, but it seems like a punisher card like Browbeat. you're giving your oppenents the choice of what to do, and they'll pick the thing that helps them out, not you.
Darksteel Ingot could be cut for a mana dork.
both 4 mana planswalkers could be cut i think. They just seem hard to keep around, especially in multiplayer games.
Reaper of the Wilds could be something higher impact. Right now it just looks like a big dude.
Smothering Abomination I'm just wondering about this one, do you run enough tokens to support it? It seems hard to run out on turn 4 and have it provide the vaule you want
Gilded Lotus for a mana dork
Wurmcoil Engine this is a good card, i just want to know if it's a "good stuff" addition or you need the lifelink
Army of the Damned is cool, but it makes tapped dudes so you can't block with them and it's soo expensive. Have you had good experiences with it?
Some of the cards in your maybeboard i think you should try and get in the main deck are
Phyrexian Arena card draw is good
Beast Within very versitile removal spell
Reflecting Pool good card is good

I love the deck. Very solid. You really aren't lacking in anything, but I will suggest a few cards you may like.
Caustic Caterpillar and Sylvok Replica are fantastic threat control, keeping your opponent's enchantments and creatures in check. The Caterpillar is cheap, but the Replica really shines mid-late game, when you only need to keep up for his ability.
Again, though, fantastic deck. If you're interested, I run Meren as well. I'd appreciate any feedback you might have if you wanna check it out.

Really solid deck. You might benefit from a bit more removal. gives you access to Pernicious Deed and Gaze of Granite, two very powerful boardwipes that give you a lot of control over what stays and what goes. And always with the option of = for tokens. Maelstrom Pulse is another interesting one, but it's sorcery speed may detract from it some.
You could really benefit from Triskelion in this deck. You already run Mikaeus, so adding this card would put in a solid backup combo for you. Also, it means if you ever resolve Tooth and Nail, you win.
Creatures that sac themselves can be extremely useful. A few you don't have but may like are Dawntreader Elk, Burnished Hart, Sylvok Replica, and Yavimaya Elder. You run a lot more sac outlets than I do, so these aren't necessary, but I figured I'd mention them at least. The Elder especially has proven itself many times.
The other thing that you may consider are Eldrazi Spawn Tokens. These are a free exp counter for Meren, as well as ramp and a waiting death trigger for if you have your Butcher or some similar card online. I'm personally quite partial to Awakening Zone and Catacomb Sifter, but there are more.
Sorry for the long post. You already have a really solid deck, but if you like anything in here and would like some suggestions on what might be cut for room, lemme know. Also, if you're interested, I have a Meren deck on here too. Feel free to check it out and leave any feedback you might have.
