Vulturous Zombie Discussion

Snydog17 on Budget Sacrifice (suggestions plz)

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.

I feel like Sewer Nemesis should be included. You can even name yourself if you're feeling particularly Dredgey, and Vulturous Zombie would get along fine with some of the mill going on in your deck.

This deck occupies a critical segment of your color wheel. You may be able to find some ideas there.

With all of that discard Vulturous Zombie or Lord of Extinction would provide effective power on the board.

I have a few win cons like Kokusho, the Evening Star, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, and quite a few other synergies such as Vulturous Zombie + Undercity Informer, quite a bit of life gain, killing people with their own cards by recurring Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Grave Betrayal, Demon of Dark Schemes, and Rise of the Dark Realms. After all that theres still a few beat sticks to deal with. Im always willing and open to suggestions myself. We can always discuss changes at another time.

I tried to build my deck to work well with itself, as well as be resiliant to graveyard removal, we're still weak to cards like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Scavenging Ooze, but hey its a fun deck with a fun commander.

Vulturous Zombie doesn't really fit in this deck, because I don't see it's ability being used much as I won't be putting enough of the opponent's creatures in the graveyard. Ring of Kalonia has promise due to synergy with counters, I'll have to do some playtesting with it. Cheers!

Vulturous Zombie may be a nice addition to this maybe even a Ring of Kalonia or 2

Hello there as a fellow Meren enthusiast I feel I may have some advice for you. You certainly have a lot of creatures and while Momma Meren loves her some creatures I feel as though you have a few too many. Verdant Force is a prime example of a card of which there are better options in the form of enchantments like how you have From Beyond in your maybeboard. It is much better because it m=has more survivability and it costs less. Another card that plays off of that is Awakening Zone. Both create tokens that Meren can sac. A few other creatures that are in my experience under performers are Great Oak Guardian, Vulturous Zombie, Centaur Vinecrasher, Cloudthresher, Kessig Cagebreakers terastadonBlood Bairn, Apocalypse Demon, Sifter Wurm, Hooded Assassin. They have a high cmc and/ or don't really do all that much. A few options for replacements would be things like Dictate of Erebos, Black Market, Diabolic Tutor, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Reclamation Sage, Beseech the Queen, Animate Dead, Strionic Resonator, Spore Frog(a champion of a Meren deck is this frog let me tell you), Viscera Seer, Merciless Executioner, Fleshbag Marauder, Buried Alive, Eldritch Evolution, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Beast Within, Pawn of Ulamog, Sifter of Skulls, Evolutionary Leap, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Smothering Abomination, Living Death. They offer Meren much more support and help you get the most value out of what you got going on. Because when you have too many creatures the lack of support spells like the ones mentioned above can really slow you down and make you more vulnerable to board wipes and the like and limit your potential wincons. I would also heavily consider Dictate of Erebos over some of the curses because it can just do a lot of work for you. Another thing I noticed is you have Dredge listed in your tag list and I don't really see that much of a Dredge-y presence in the deck. Those are just some thoughts I have after playing both Budget and Much more Expensive versions of Meren for quite a while. But if you don't like what I have to say that's cool. I don't mean to offend at all. And ultimately the choices are your's anyways. So please tell me your thoughts on what I brought up!

Also here is my take on budget Meren that I mentioned earlier. Who Needs $200+ Dollar Decks???
