JaysomeDecks on Meren in need of an upgrade

2 days ago

You already run Mikaeus, so I would suggest adding in Triskelion for the combo, and Tooth and Nail as a one-card wincon to fetch them both out. The commander provides recursion, in case either creature ends up prematurely in the graveyard, and by nature Meren allows for massive mana-ramp, making casting Tooth and Nail quite easy.

You actually made me look at my deck and realize I hadn't updated it in a long time. I had listed a few cards, which were no longer in the deck, that I suggested to cut. one of the few cards that i have had a lot of fun with is Overseer of the Damned, really solid card with good utility. Also Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is super easy to combo with. Triskelion or Walking Ballista both go infinite with him alone. Something i noticed while playing Meren was that you could stop someone from playing their artifacts and enchantments super easily and creatures not terribly hard either. However, indestuctable creatures are annoying and hard to deal with as well as opposing graveyard recursion affects. to combat them i enlisted Faceless Butcher. Another good one which i only have 1 copy of is Duplicant. These are both really good cards to use multiple times. butcher is a bit harder to work with but costs less mana too. I am going to copy paste a scenario for you to show why he is very good.

1) Faceless Butcher enters the battlefield, triggering its ability. 2) Butcher's Controller puts the ability on the Stack, choosing the target creature. 3) Butcher's Controller then uses an Instant or Ability to Sacrifice the Butcher, triggering its" Leaves the Battlefield" effect. 4) The "Leaves the Battlefield" effect was put on the Stack more recently than the "Enters the Battlefield" effect, so it will resolve first. 5) When the "Leaves the Battlefield" effect resolves, nothing has been Exiled by the Faceless Butcher, so there is nothing to return to the Battlefield. 6) When the "Enters the Battlefield" effect resolves, the target creature gets Exiled.

Walking Ballista + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed does not work together as a 2 card combo. The second passive ability of Mikaeus, the Unhallowed giving the creatures +1/+1 makes Walking Ballista a 2/2 (with one +1/+1) counter on it which it would need to fire at itself to die and trigger the undying effect thus netting no damage on the opponent. Undying Evil does work in place of Mikaeus, the Unhallowed because there is no passive health boost the health of a creature. The Triskelion works due to it being able to hit an opponent for 1 then deal 2 to itself(due to the passive health buff).

DuTogira on Developing Consistency within League Restrictions

While I don't have a 100% competitive list (my playgroup and I prefer to keep things at 75%), Ezuri, Claw of Progress is a surprisingly powerful and consistent commander.
He doesn't deal in true infinite combos (minus the one with Sage of Hours, but I'm sure with 3 extra turns you can get out of almost anything) but has crazy powerful options.
Examples:
Spike Weaver/Spike Feeder
Cultivator of Blades
Triskelion/Walking Ballista
And then of course a whole host of token generators to do well vs creature decks and tech options like Glen Elendra Archmage, Acidic Slime, etc. against more spell heavy strategies.
You're welcome to check out my ezuri list if you'd like, just know that it's missing some big players like Survival of the Fittest and Sage of Hours.

@Bhaal666: Thank you for explaining all that for me!

@Karns_Pyromancer: The arbitrarily large combo would work if we don't have to repeat the same thing 5 or more times. If I'm not mistaken I believe that the Nath list on cEDH wins by the Squirrel Nest + Earthcraft combo, but I don't think the others have easily accessible optimized lists.

@chaosumbreon87: I am trying to win or at least place in the league so the point would be to not rack up ridiculous amounts of negative points by comboing off or blowing up everyone's lands. I usually start my decks off around $400 and if I like the deck enough to keep optimizing, then it does not really matter. The only themes I care about in a deck are consistency and how well it fits within league restrictions. I'm not really partial to playing anything, unfortunately. As for your suggestions, the only one's that I could use seem to be Teferi/GAAIV and Nekusar. To my knowledge all the rest of those are combo decks that would net me negative points. That Azusa, Lost but Seeking elfball list you posted awhile back on the cEDH tier list seems like it would work well actually lol.

@AlexoBn: I agree! The cEDH Jarad list is pretty great, however isn't one of its main win-con's the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion combo?

Purphoros, God of the Forge seems like another good candidate, however mono red feels as though it has some consistency issues despite Purph's 2.5 tier listing. Thoughts?

Winterblast on Hapatra, Stax of Snakes

KaraZorEl that's a 4 card combo in a 100 card singleton format...and it doesn't even kill instantly. Mikaeus and Triskelion or Walking Ballista is a two card combo that doesn't need any further help - I would rather put these into the deck than a clunky 4 card trick.
