4-0 Tuesday night Modern
2-0 Esper Control
Clock em before they get established, second game the mulled to a slow 5.
2-0 Kid Eldrazi
Not a fair match, but the kid was cracking me up. His commentary was pretty comical, animated sadness when continuing to sacrifice Geralf's Messenger for value.
2-1 Izzet Phoenix
On my heels dropping first game, stole second game by swinging with team using Yawgmoth, Thran Physician evolving 3 creatures and discarding a land for proliferating the counters for exactees. Last game opponent iffy keep, stumbled on mana a few turns paid for it.
2-1 Urza Thopter This time i was ready for the matchup, game one Assassin's Trophy takes out an early Thopter Foundry and my gameplan trumps his chance of combo. Second game he sideboards in like 8 cards against me haha, timely Grafdigger's Cage and Pithing Needle on my Carrion Feeder followed by an Urza which i dispatch with a trophy followed by another topdecked Urza making another fat token. Last game i survive through my Geralf's Messenger getting Surgical Extraction and pull another evolve trigger, discard land off Yawgmoth proliferate for 4 damage exactees.
Super fun games, i'm still not certain about the Lotus Cobra but from a short sample size it's probably been the best mana dork i've used in the shell so far. Reasons it creates any color, it's 2/1 body enables evolve on a more aggresive tilt since it doesn't tap for mana and has a higher power. It still can be jettisoned for sacrifice fodder later makimg it overall more ver

I know this is thread is quite old however I've been consistently playing/adapting and updating my Meren list for quite some time. It is about a 75% competitive build. I run a small stax package that I use to control the game until I assemble my win con of either looping Gray Merchant or a Mikaeus, the unhallowed + Triskelion combo.
These are some of my favorite cards
A) Mindslicer – Very powerful effect that can either protect your combo, or slow your opponents down to a crawl. Meren can rebuild a lot quicker than most other decks. Also note that a Meren + 4 experience counters + a sac outlet + mindslicer can lock the player beside you out of the game except for instants by recurring mindslicer on your end step then sacrificing it at the end of your opponents draw step.
B) Crypt Rats – This acts as a mini board wipe that can easily be tutored for and recurred by Meren.
C) Nature's Revolt – The CMC is high and there are games where it isn’t feasible but with crypt rats it becomes an Armageddon and with Massacre Wurm it usually just means game over. Meren is extremely good at rebuilding and this affect usually doesn’t slow Meren down that much. Note that with Natures revolt in play all lands have summoning sickness so it also acts as a pseudo stax piece. This card also discourages other players from using wraths because they will blow up their own lands.
Natures Revolt can backfire and allow someone to kill your best lands so it requires the right situation to play. It is a high risk high reward card that I enjoy playing with.
D) Contamination – a stax piece that can protect your combo / let you grind out a victory.
E) Yawgmoth, Thran Physician – This card does everything you want in Meren. Sac outlet, Draw engine, creature removal and discard outlet. It also goes pseudo infinite (1 life per sac) with Mikaeaus and 2 non humans. I’m currently testing a secondary Hulk package in my deck that gets Phyrexian Delver + Viscera seer -> Delver returns Hulk -> Sac Hulk to get Mikaeus, the unhallowed -> Sac Delver, undying will trigger and return it to the battlefield recurring Hulk -> Sac Hulk to get Yawgmoth, Blood Artist, Dryad Arbor. This is not optimal but it gives me a redundancy.
Some of these strategies are quite oppressive. My mentality is that I’m fine using them as long as I can win the game quickly after employing them

Oh other side note on black, the best creature in MtG that isn't named Tarmogoyf is Dark Confidant , aka "Bob", named for an infamous cheater he was designed by and named after. The guy embodied Black perfectly. This card is seen in vamps sometimes, with Asylum Visitor being the 5th Bob, also used in Jund at times.
Dreadbore , Rakdos Charm , Kaya's Guile , Falkenrath Gorger Skymarcher Aspirant , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Slaughter Pact , Murderous Cut , Lightning Helix , Liliana's Triumph , and newly legal Unearth . Just random other Mardu cards. Mardu = Red/Black/White, Rakdos = Red/Black.

@jaymc1130: Yeah, a big part of the reason I built this deck is because my playgroup seems to be stepping up its power-level a bit. One guy built an absolutely disgusting Yawgmoth, Thran Physician deck, and another built a sliver deck helmed by The First Sliver . As far as I'm concerned, if you bring Cascade into the playgroup you deserve to go up against a storm deck.
I love the Cheerios archetype, and realized I could make a reasonable facsimile of it in Commander for roughly the same budget as all my other decks, so it seemed like the best choice for me. If everyone else keeps playing their more casual decks, then I will stick with my old ones, but at least this deck has a good chance of storming out before the 5-color sliver cascade can get fully online.

Hey Tim! I just added Yawgmoth, Thran Physician to my Dune deck as Yueh. He’s perfect in their story parallels and an amazing

hkhssweiss, it's been awhile, my dude.
After more than half a year, the deck has evolved into something vastly different from what I was playing. My meta shifted, so I had to grow with it. And because I haven't been online for quite sometime, at least half of the old deck is gone. I decided to just re-do the list instead of posting updates -- but I will push to post updates from this point on.
I like Ob Nixilis, Unshackled but he's going into the mono black reanimator deck that I'm rebuilding with Yawgmoth, Thran Physician at the helm. Go for the Throat was at some point in the deck, but I tend to keep the only the most versatile; especially when it comes to removal.

hungry000 I also think Blood Artist is better than Zulaport Cutthroat . I'm just using Zulaport because i run Cavern of Souls . Zulaport is human like Hapatra, Vizer of Poisons and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician . And this gives protection against decks that play with blue. I still need to test enough to know if this decision is worth it, but that's what I think for now. Thanks!
