Twilight's Call Discussion

Approximos on Big 'ol Flappy Lizards

Always love dragons.

For some win-cons I would try Kindred Summons and Genesis Wave.

For stuff like this where everything is huge (both mana and toughness) I like Heartless Summoning as well as Mirari's Wake and Zendikar Resurgent. That last one will also help with some draw.

I also like running some good ol' necromancy tricks with some hand cycle. I'd consider running Scion of the Ur-Dragon instead, so you can tutor out and load up your graveyard, then drop some stuff like Patriarch's Bidding, Twilight's Call, Rise of the Dark Realms, and a favorite Living Death.

If you like the last idea, run some Ancient Excavation, Jace's Archivist, Collective Defiance, Windfall, Dragon Mage, Incendiary Command, Tolarian Winds, Magus of the Wheel, and Wheel of Fate to fuel that graveyard. And if you are feeling cheeky Traumatize yourself and confuse everybody.

Also, try out some cluestones, keyrunes, obelisks and such to help with that mana ramp. I'd recommend around 8 or so to balance out the pace, unless you wanna fork out for Azusa, Lost but Seeking or Oracle of Mul Daya

epajula I'm a pretty hardcore Vorthos, and this deck lets me live the fantasy of a Mardu Horde. The warrior tribal is actually surprisingly effective, and more importantly fun to play.

I'm looking at replacing Twilight's Call with Beacon of Unrest, Immortal Servitude, or some similar effect.

Purphoros, God of the Forge is an excellent recommendation. I almost forgot he existed, and even better I think I have one sitting in a now defunct deck.

Master of Cruelties is also a great recommendation. I'd then have one each of a Demon, Angel, and Dragon - which is just nice for aesthetic reasons I guess. I just don't know what I would replace with him.

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,

Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.

Alternate commanders or cards to include in the deck could be: The Scarab God and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.

Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich

-Fog

-Vulturous Zombie

-Satyr Wayfinder

-Ravenous Rats

-Greater Mossdog

-Centaur Vinecrasher

A meren deck is built for attrition. You want lots of utility creatures and spells to reanimate, recur, sacrifice, and shuffle around for control and to get ahead. Discard effects are very weak in multiplayer, and alot of the cards mentioned have better options. You may notice I took out alot of big creatures. As Meren, you want to hold the game up and smile as everyones eyes go wider and wider as you gradually pull far ahead and beat them to death. Control recursion utility Value

ScrOuch Thanks for leaving some feedback for me!

Good call on the Phyrexian Delver it's been really strong.

Body Snatcher isn't a great flicker target, though if i run more sac outlets it might be better.

Dictate of Erebos isn't quite budget enough for me, I really like that the entire deck is under $50. This way when folks see it play out i can tell them the idea and that the deck could be upgraded as well

Outpost Siege is right on theme though i'm not sure what to cut for it

I think Impact Tremors is possibly win more? I'm not heavy in tokens and if i'm combo'ing with Peregrine Drake i should be able to win another way.

Blood Artist doesn't trigger on flickers, but it is a good card and in multiplayer games creatures die and i'll get value. I think I want to commit to the theme of flicker over good stuff additions right now though

Goblin Bombardment and Ashnod's Altar are good though i'm not to sure they will be strong enough if i don't add the dictate. Also the commander isn't the focus of the deck so adding things just for him seems loose IMO

LVL_666 Thanks for all your suggestions! Lets dive in,

Rune-Scarred Demon is out of budget range. It's not that I don't have it, I do, I just want to run the entire deck under $50. So that means missing out on Dictate of Erebos and the demon but adding Dreamscape Artist and Sire of Stagnation

Noxious Gearhulk I think i want to add, even with the price tag$. All my creature kill now can't kill black creatures and I kinda want more life gain and this card works on both levels. What's better though, Noxious Gearhulk or Inferno Titan???

Vial Smasher the Fierce dosen't fit the theme and is almost a good stuff addition, so I'll pass for now.

Crater Hellion, Ratchet Bomb and Sever the Bloodline are sweet anti token measures, here is what i was thinking Devastation Tide. It deals with the tokens, enchantments, planswalkers, and other unbeatable positions I could find myself in. What do you think?

quitrage Thanks for the bringing some sweet ideas to the table

Dance of the Dead I want to add, though i'm not sure i can think of the cut for it, any thoughts?

Twilight's Call, Champion of Stray Souls and Diabolic Servitude I've played before and didn't really like them. Those were different decks though, so I'll keep them in mind while playing this one.

Hey the deck looks pretty fun, here's some ideas for re-animation that brings them straight to the battlefield rather than your hand so you can get the ETB effect.

Dance of the Dead

Twilight's Call

Champion of Stray Souls

Diabolic Servitude

also for dealing with tokens the card you recommended for my deck, Sever the Bloodline seems like it could do rather well in yours as well.

Forgotten Creation is a great card. I would put it in the deck from the maybe board. It can do two things: draw cards and stack your graveyard. To the second effect I would add more cards like Living Death such as Twilight's Call or Zombify to recur creatures from the grave.
