Wake the Dead Discussion
6 days ago
Thanks so much for taking time for this. Getting better mana base and few of staples is on my to do list for a while, problem is that something always comes up. Getting cephalid combo out was my plan these days, and adding dispel instead of counterspell. Would Wake the Dead be good as a reanimation effect or has time and meta pushed it aside?

direct budget swaps that are better most of the time.
I would say your curve is a tad high (average 4.03 atm, even with over 100 this is problematic). Depending on the speed of your meta you will get left behind on experience counters and setup if you can't play anything. So more value 2 drops and 3 drops will smooth the deck out.
I would also recommend Shadowborn Demon quite heavily in any meren deck. Surprise catch most kill with a slow sac outlet in a pinch (with a 5/6 flying body when you are adequately set up).
A question you want to ask yourself while cutting/swapping with this deck is: What do I want my mid/late game to look like?
Do you want fatty beats? (Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, etc)
Is this deck focused more on multiplayer amongst friends, store multiplayer, or 1v1?

Last thing for today, found a new card Wake the Dead. With all the ETB effects you are running and the fact that you run a bunch of sack outlets this could be a crazy blowout out of nowhere cause I don't know anyone who runs this. Little situational but still super cool. Especially if you put Malfegor in the graveyard with some of the draw ETB creatures, stack those triggers properly and you can really break someone.

I can see Mindslicer being pretty fun to play but I haven't put him in to avoid drawing hate from the whole table. I found Entomber Exarch (or Nightmare Void) being a fine substitute for that matter. It still deals with storm and/or combo decks by taking their most threatening card and showing the rest to other players who can take care (save a counterspell etc.) of other cards if needed. It can also function as a conditional Eternal Witness when I don't need hand disruption so it's never a dead draw.
As much as I love Eternal Witness, I don't see myself running Den Protector and Treasured Find because it can't be recurred and I'm trying to maximize the number of cards which can be useful when they end up in the graveyard.
Animate Dead, Necromancy and Dance of the Dead are definitely all quality cards but I prefer more unique or swingy recursion spell (such as Wake the Dead or Living Death). I will probably add them if I find myself in need of more recursion.
I was running Buried Alive before and I cut it because I didn't need that many tutors and I often found myself holding it in my hand for the whole game. My deck, however, has evolved since then and I'm positive that I'll be able to use tutors more efficiently now. I'll give it another shot.

Hey, I like the deck! I tried Athreos but never had much success but I'm definitely a fan of orzhov. Here are some suggestions:
Wound Reflection really helps make Athreos a threat.
Hope these help!

Wake the Dead gives you a bunch of sacrifices, recursion, and blockers.

Good land ramp
Remove two counters and it's a power 1 or less creature that draws you a card!
Scry is almost carddraw!
Protection for your commander.
Good land to add
Makes daemons. Nice right?
Makes people think twice
you have a lot of black symbols
I think you might need more carddraw.I recommend 6-8 drawcards
one of the better draws
draws you a card every turn
multiple per turn if you're feeling it.
Drain a lot of people so you can fuel your carddraw
If you have too much mana, carddraw!
a really annoying card for your opponent.
Free token every turn?
Bring creatures back. then kill them, them bring them back!
bring big creatures back!
You like killing your own things right?
You can kill your own creatures and get carddraw
