Viridian Revel Discussion
Felix_Culpa on Maren
1 month ago
Oh gosh it's kinda bad. Let's start by removing the following:
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

This is a sweet list and I love the idea. My question, however, is how do you win? It seems that with the Viridian Revels, you would probably deck yourself before they would and if you're using your only creature to modify permanents, it isn't dealing damage. I would definitely find a win condition. Preferably one that will benefit from the destruction or one that cannot be destroyed so you can put some real pressure on your opponent.

Looks great! You might be able to make use of Viridian Revel for some drawing power while you're blasting your opponent's permanents. Blinkmoth Well could give you another option if you have room for a utility land. Ancient Stirrings might be nice for drawing into the Coating or Scepter if you need them, or the Wurmcoil if you've got the board under control.

Keen Sense is cheaper than Snake Umbra. Mask of Memory would stick around longer than either (should a dude die) and you can use something like Creeping Renaissance to get all the discarded cards back (if that's a concern).
Elder Pine of Jukai could be interesting if you had more spirits or arcane spells (looks like you have 3 total so probably not a great fit). There could be some other spirits or arcane spells worth swapping in...a couple that seem kinda cool or would otherwise fit your theme: Arashi, the Sky Asunder, Carven Caryatid, Eidolon of Blossoms, Forked-Branch Garami, Haru-Onna, Iname, Life Aspect, Nourishing Shoal, Permeating Mass, Primordial Sage, Rending Vines, Strength of Cedars, Wear Away. Not trying to change up the vibe, just saying...
Other straight up draw cards to consider: Abundant Growth, Elemental Bond, Fecundity, Fa'adiyah Seer, Fruit of the First Tree, Garruk's Packleader, Glimpse of Nature, Hunter's Insight, Hunter's Prowess, Kavu Lair, Krosan Tusker (just to cycle it), Life's Legacy, Nature's Resurgence, Nissa's Revelation, Ohran Viper, Sylvan Library, Zendikar Resurgent.
Viridian Revel could be interesting given you seem to like artifact hate. And then there are all the Enchantresses, if you want to start loading up on enchantments, e.g. Verduran Enchantress. I think there are 4-5 available, which could become some serious card draw off simple cantrips like Abundant Growth.
This looks like a fun deck...might try my hand at a build if I have enough of the cards ;-)

You should also try Myr Landshaper and one or two of Mycosynth Lattice to ensure you have ways to turn your opponent's stuff into artifacts. Viridian Revel can give you a boost in card advantage, Tel-Jilad Justice is one of the most useful ways to take out artifacts, and Ancient Stirrings is great for drawing into a Liquimetal Coating or needed land. Likewise, you might be able to make use of Blinkmoth Well.

Interesting choice of going red/green. Most artifact destruction lists (I don't know if there is a name for this kind of archtype) go blue/green. It has access to Trygon Predator for more destruction (not that you don't have enough or anything, just repeatable), Argent Mutation if needing another way for coating something, and Fabricate, Tezzeret the Seeker and Muddle the Mixture for tutoring out the coating... just some ideas, I don't want to sound pushy..
Love the deck, just wanted to help a little bit. Considering building one of these decks now, looks evil

Rootbound Crag over Rugged Highlands. And personally, I'm not a big fan of Fertile Thicket for this deck. You could end up putting what you need at the bottom of the deck with no way to shuffle them back to the top (maybe add a couple Wooded Foothills?). I'd run Temple of Abandon over Fertile Thicket.
