Darthack2661 thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

As for Vulturous Zombie, we aim to win the game on turn 5 at the latest - not to cast a creature. Anyway, it would be unplayable even if it costed way less: we are not even close to play Jace's Phantasm, so bad are creatures in Mill!

Im working on a control / mill and trying to keep it under $150 (no snappys). I LOVE the idea of Vulturous Zombie. Time to crack out my old Gemstone Mines and add a playset to the deck! +1

I have Doubling Season as a means to aggressively use Liliana, the Last Hope's last ability. True she'll only be at 6, but you use her +1 and the next turn you get her Emblem. It also works wonders with Endless Ranks of the Dead. I feel like if I cut them both out, the entire deck's idea of aggressively turning out literally hundreds of tokens falls apart.

However, I see your point on Marrow Chomper and Vulturous Zombie. Perhaps those are more well suited for Sideboard cards? And I agree about Whip of Erebos. I was just thinking Lifelink would be fun, but it absolutely does not need to be in there.

As for Evolving Wilds, it's actually in there for Fatal Push. My Forest / Swamp may enter tapped (Unlike with Verdant Catacombs), however it still gives me two additional cards to kick off FP's Revolt ability.

I had actually considered Slitherhead. Might go back to him. A 1/1 that turns into a +1/+1 Counter always sounds good, IMO

Hey there! Cool deck! I feel like your problems could mostly be solved by making your deck faster. There's really only one viable ramp deck in Modern, TitanShift, and that's because ramp is its win condition.

To that end, I would cut most of the expensive cards in your deck altogether: Marrow Chomper, Vulturous Zombie, Doubling Season, Whip of Erebos, maybe even Endless Ranks of the Dead, and instead focus more on powering out some solid early Zombies like Gravecrawler, Diregraf Ghoul, Geralf's Messenger, etc. You could even go for Slitherhead if you need to dig deep enough. I would also cut Golgari Charm for some more aggressive 2-drops, probably something like Relentless Dead.

Additionally, if you need to add more cards to replace the above cuts, I would recommend going up to the full 4 Lotleth Troll, followed by the full 4 of some of your lords.

Finally, Overgrown Tomb is much better than Evolving Wilds.

In any case, good luck, and I hope this helps!

Oh gosh it's kinda bad. Let's start by removing the following:

-Viridian Revel

-Eternal Thirst

-Slippery Karst

-Tablet of the Guilds

-Everflowing Chalice


-Twilight's Call

-Rakshasa's Secret


-Nightmare Void

-Tribute to the Wild


-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

Cheap BG stuff that you might want to consider: Vulturous Zombie stuff dying is quite good, Varolz, the Scar-Striped graveuard stuff and sac engine, Spiritmonger, Reaper of the Wilds stuff dying is good, Rakshasa Deathdealer, Putrid Leech a decent buff, Pharika, God of Affliction graveyard and make some snakes, Hag Hedge-Mage versatility is good, Grave-Shell Scarab for some draw, Doomgape is a good sac engine, Deity of Scars good dude in general, Baloth Null for some recursion, Puppeteer Clique not BG but steal your opponet's stuff.

More recursion because you are a sacrifice deck: Whip of Erebos who doesn't like lifelink, Vigor Mortis, Seasons Past got lots o stuff.
