Vindictive Lich Discussion

Alright, it seems the deck is a bit top heavy. Here are my suggestions. I have structured this rework of the deck to sac and get the mana out quick till you can have Meren stay on the board long enough or just hard cast the big things. You don't have to take my suggestions but I highly insist that this will make her work again.

I'm happy to see, that you like the best commander of all time, Meren ;-). Really like the addition of Apprentice Necromancer - gotta include him in my deck as well.
But there are some cards, that have no synergy with your commander and could easily be replaced. Creature ramp like Birds of Paradise, Elvish Mystic or Elves of Deep Shadow don't really do anything for your experience counters.
But with creatures like Yavimaya Granger, Burnished Hart, Dawntreader Elk or Yavimaya Elder you get ramp AND experience counters - this way you can loop your ramp creatures every round with Meren.
Your curve has a little breakdown at 6 - Mikaeus is your only 6-drop :(. Here are some creatures that work as a 6-drop in Meren: Kokusho, the Evening Star, Grave Titan, Bane of Progress, Massacre Wurm, Wurmcoil Engine.
Some other important signature cards for Meren include: Birthing Pod, Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Sepulchral Primordial, Ashnod's Altar, Necropotence, Fauna Shaman, Vindictive Lich, Grave Pact and Altar of Dementia

The Liliana, Untouched By Death could be a good option to help you with combos when Gisa and Geral is not in the battlefield. Also, you can do more combos, for example, combine her with a sac outlet + Rooftop Storm + Gray Merchant of Asphodel or Vindictive Lich

Love your deck (+1)!!! I swapped a few cards I was running with some of yours, I am going to try out Vindictive Lich and Filigree Familiar, but Death Cloud is a stroke of genius!!! I was running Jokulhaups and that was mostly successful.
I have a couple of recommendations for you as well, I think you should swap your Sifter of Skulls for Pawn of Ulamog. Pawn is cheaper, makes makes a spawn if it dies, and it's a vampire which matters sometimes (Patron of the Vein and Metallic Mimic.
Also, I would swap Wurmcoil Engine with Kokusho, the Evening Star. It has flying and when it dies it usually nets you 15 life and dishes out 15 damage (5 for each opponent). With a graft creature (see below) you are able to dish out 20 damage/round and heal 80 life.
My meta must be different than yours as well because I have a really hard time with enchantments and you seem to be running light on enchantment "answers" like All Is Dust.
My last and most important recommendation is creatures with the keyword "graft" e.g. Vigean Graftmage (which I see you are running but I run them all). Here is why, if you control a graft creature and another creature comes into play under your control (by casting it or by Marchesa's ability) you can put a +1 counter on the creature as soon as it hits the battlefield, no dethrone required. If you control your commander and a sac outlet as well, you can sac the creature and trigger it's enter the battlefield or death trigger on each of your opponents turns as well as your own (~4x/turn). just dont forget to sac your graft creature while it still has one +1 counter and when they all return to the battlefield stack the triggers so the Graft creature enters the battlefield first so it can redistribute the +1 counters.
Please come check out my Marchesa deck as well. Marchesa, Death & Betrayal

I have 128 cards and trying to knock it down to 100, would like some help makes a good Zombie deck. Thank you for your time and help. Here are my cards
Commander - Oloro, Ageless Ascetic
2 months ago
This is my first commander deck I got a few months back and have built it up slowly but am in dire need of help finishing it. I know it is slow and probably bad but I like it and it suits me just fine. I like how it can focus on the graveyard but the only strategies I have for it is the Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank set and the Sphinx's Tutelage. I want to focus it on wizards mill where my wizards can help me use my graveyard getting back my instants and sorceries that help mill and draw using Sphinx's Tutelge. Other creatures can be added like Consecrated Sphinx but i'd like for creatures to be mostly wizard. Any help is appreciated.
Commander: Inalla, Archmage Ritualist

lance4224130 Hey, as we are playing exactly the same colours EDH decks, I had to come here too!
I started EDH with a Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief deck (which is on my page if you want to have a look, it may give you some ideas).
As experienced, I don't really like Magus of the Coffers. Even if you got the boots to directly equip him (and you don't play them, which is understandable with Erebos as commander), it's really slow. If you're looking for a card with a similar effect, you could put in a Doubling Cube (a bit greedy though, but I love this card), an Extraplanar Lens (play snow-covered swamps if you go for it, so your opponents won't get any benefits) or Jet Medallion.
Consuming Vapors feels badly slow and only affect one dude. Even if it has rebound, I won't play it. I play Choice of Damnations in my Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck because I have the ability to down everyone life totals quite quickly... in a hard control deck as this one, I think it's just not good enough. Your opponents will often choose to lose something like 9-10 life points on the best cases, and you will spend all your mana in a useless card. Same reaction for Consume Spirit, Soul Burn and Drain Life. Except maybe in some greedy Jeleva decklists, Curse of the Cabal seems like a bad card for EDH.
If you want to play devotion, Phyrexian Obliterator and Necropotence are staples. Erebos's Titan is not bad either (and flavorful). Dread Shade at leat deserves some testing playtime. Even if it's not your initial strategy, Grave Titan is huge and ugly - so it's definitely everything you like in his kind of deck. Kokusho, the Evening Star is a great tread to take advantage on your opponents.
If you want to stay on a more ''creatureless'' devotion version, you could try out Kuon, Ogre Ascendant which is hard to flip, but pretty damn effective.
All Is Dust makes out as a great board-clear, but you should keep in mind it also forces you to sacrifice your enchantments. Phyrexian Scriptures are nice in synergy with The Abyss, but it's quite a slow card. Massacre Wurm is a nice card to control the board (hum... to destroy every token deck), healing you and giving you a strong body on the battlefield.
Bitterblossom with Contamination and/or Attrition is op - Bloodghast / Ophiomancer serve the same purposes, and you will also love to add Skullclamp if you go for it, having access to a nice sac outlet is what makes monoB that strong in my opinion (also with cards like Ashnod's Altar, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos (flavorful!) etc.).
You have the Lich's Mastery which seems funny.
I certainly forgot a lot of cards, but I'll let you know if something else come to my mind. Have great fun building it up!

This is a really good start. Got quite a few suggestions though as I have a very similar take on Marchesa that I've been playing for several years now.
First, creatures. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is great here as an alternate way to get counters on your team. Falkenrath Aristocrat is a hasty sac outlet and really good here. Oona's Blackguard and Metallic Mimic to get some more +1+1 counter love in here. Vindictive Lich and Sadistic Hypnotist for more hand hate. Haste is also huge and gives +1+1 counters sooner, consider Ogre Battledriver, Anger, and/or Urabrask the Hidden (and Hall of the Bandit Lord).
Enchantments and Instants- Look good
Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, upvotes, and ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. He who controls the Spice controls the Spice Girls
