McToters I had actually been considering that card for a while, but found that it has limitations in my deck. I only run 16 basic lands in my entire deck, and with cards like Traverse the Outlands , Cultivate / Kodama's Reach , Yavimaya Elder and Sakura-Tribe Elder already pulling out a lot of them, I feel like it could be a waste of value at times. My decklist is already so restrictive on what I can add (because there are so many possibilities with a landfall deck) that while it could create some explosive and wonky plays, it's a seven-mana ramp spell essentially. This is an excellent suggestion, I'd personally much rather run a card like Genesis Wave , which is a much more consistent ramp/win-condition.

If you have any more suggestions, feel free to let me know. Also just send me a link of any of your decks if you'd like a second opinion on anything. :D

Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip is great for this kind of deck - draw power that never whiffs. Primordial Sage is more precious draw. I know you have Birds of Paradise and Elvish Mystic and the like, but to synergize with Nikya, you should look into creatures that give you more actual lands on the battlefield: Wood Elves , Yavimaya Elder , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Dawntreader Elk , Farhaven Elf , Frontier Guide , etc.

Woodland Bellower is a great tutor that pairs with Fierce Empath to cover nearly everything in your deck.

If you're playing 'Mage Hater', consider Harsh Mentor and maybe even Eidolon of the Great Revel .

Ulvenwald Tracker is great removal in a creature-based deck.

This mono green EDH deck is well out of date and I could use some help updating it to not only be legal but competitive

I feel like the base of the deck is still pretty strong and it only needs a few minor updates here and there, so any and all inputs would be greatly appreciate.

Asus, lost but seeking

bushido_man96 on Meren, building process

Creatures like Farhaven Elf and Sakura-Tribe Elder are great, and I don't mean for them to come out. Others like them that would run well include Burnished Hart , Yavimaya Elder , and Yavimaya Granger . Anything that can sac itself with Meren on the board is a bonus. With the Granger, you just decline to pay the echo cost if it suits you.

I run an Aristocrats package in my Meren build, but you don't have to if you don't want to. But the sheer fact that creatures are going to die a lot over the course of the game does make cards like Zulaport Cutthroat , Blood Artist , and Poison-Tip Archer great for wearing opponents down.

I like Whisper, Blood Liturgist , and think she is pretty strong. I do believe you can sacrifice her to herself to satisfy the trigger, too. I think you are running enough tutors to get to your win conditions on a fairly consistent basis, but I find that playing a deck that is too consistent can tend to get you removed from the table fairly quickly. When I first build my Meren deck, I crammed it full of tutors. As I've gone forward, I've taken more of the tutors out, which takes away some of the consistency, but let's me put more fun things in to play, and provides a fresher game play experience for me. But that's just my experience. Your mileage may vary.

Okay so first update

Removed

Added

Flesh , Malignus and Evolutionary Leap I might aquire when possible, Berserk is a bit out of price range right now.

Although I can imagine Pyroblast being good my group very rarely runs blue so it's probably a waste in this situation.

Thanks for the input!

Replaced Yavimaya Elder for Seer of the Last Tomorrow , Swiftfoot Boots for Whispersilk Cloak and finally some card I don't recall for added graveyard recovery in Wildest Dreams . Based on the last few games I played with that setup, I had a LOT of response all the time by being able to get back valuable cards from the graveyard with Regrowth, Recollect, Wildest Dreams and reanimating Eternal Witness.

Shriekmaw instead of Murder

other evoke creature are also really great like Spitebellows

Yavimaya Elder instead of Kodama's Reach

Malignus to have insane a creature with insane easily power.

Berserk is insane in this deck but it's a not a cheap card.

Vulturous Zombie i don't know if he will have enough time to be better than other t5, it might be complicated to help him survive with the few protection you have.

Flesh is good flexible card that will help you finish the game.

Evolutionary Leap and Eldritch Evolution are really greath in green sacrifice deck.

I think that you have enough draw and i don't think that a counter based theme is great in the for the deck, card that double the number of counter are really good but card that only put 1 additonnal counter are not powerful enough.

It could be useful to run Pyroblast or Red Elemental Blast to protect kresh when you are about to finish the game.

Good luck !

One thing to note: see how as we add more cards a mana curve naturally starts to form? That happens just about every deck. I try to maintain the curve that forms unless I have a reason to adjust it. So we'll be cutting cards that disrupt the curve. For example, at this moment we would want to cut cards that cost 6 cmc. But we're not done.
