Thanks for the ideas!

Triskelion is indeed an auto-include with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. I would like to put in Yahenni, Undying Partisan, but what do I need to cut?

Also, I found an Imperial Seal for 68, so I'm definitely going to pick that one up. Is the mana good? Or do I need more swamps for Cabal Coffers and Nirkana Revenant? I would like your opinions please :)

Mikaeus without Triskelion is a crime. Really easy auto win.

Upvote for the no infinite combos. This deck can show how mikaeus can actually win without Triskelion

Hey, in my opinion you don't need noncreature combos with Meren especially when you're trying to pull off three and four card combos that include noncreature cards. These combos kind of defeat the purpose of what makes Meren so good, creatures. These noncreature combo pieces are not consistent enough in a multi player setting too easy to be disrupted. With Meren you want to use your graveyard as a resource and playing a lot of noncreature cards that you want to use in a combo is risky because once they're put in the graveyard other than Eternal Witness you don't have many ways to get them back.

Creature combos however can be powerful with Meren, but this is only because of her ability to reanimate creatures. Relying only on creatures lets you not be as concerened if one of these creatures is killed because you can reanimate it with Meren. The same can't be said for Nim Deathmantle. Using creatures as combo pieces lets you play the normal game with Meren filling your graveyard without fear of losing a combo piece.

Some creature combos:

I don't think Meren really needs a combo finish or fast way to win the game. The card advantage alone that she creates by using your graveyard as a resource, sac outlets as a resource and out valuing your opponents with ETB creature reanimation is enough to win the game.

If I ever wanted to make a competitive version of my deck, I would add the Necrotic Ooze or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion combo (or both). I would also swap flashy recursion spells for the faster alternatives you adviced and put in mana dorks in place of my ramp creatures to pull the combo off as fast as possible.

For now, I'm focusing on a combo-less good/cool stuff build which I can play with friends for fun and I was thinking about switching from Meren to Karador for that matter. I think that the deck I've built suits Karador better since it's pretty slow and it feels very control focused (this may be caused by the way I pilot the deck though). Moreover, the addition of White color gives me access to strong control and recursion creatures along with some pillowfort and hatebears options to slow the game down.

Which commander is better suited for toolbox approach in your opinion, demonicgrizzly?

PS, The featured card is Living Deathfoil icon from the FTV: Annihilation special edition, Obeast.

I use the tutors for win combos, as I play less casually. My meren deck is built to get out things that win the game on the spot. I usually cast Buried Alive and dig up Necrotic Ooze Phyrexian Devourer and Triskelion which wins on the spot usually and is almost impossible to stop. I also run the Devoted Druid Quillspike combo and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord combo, which also works when ooze is already on the table.

The reanimate sp las really make that easy, especially when you have Dark Ritual or Cabal Ritual.

So I like the deck and the very strong +1/+1 focus.
While these may not be the best cards in your approach they could have some benefits.

  • Oloro, Ageless Ascetic + Drogskol Reaver = a card draw/lifegain avenue which can be combo'd with some parts of the deck
  • Triskelion + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed infinite 1dmg avenue. Trisk could also be more useful in this setup in 1v1.
