My humble Meren list :)

This list tries to combo fast, the main combo is Buried Alive, searching for Necrotic Ooze, Phyrexian Devourer and Triskellion, then reanimating Necrotic Ooze for the win.

Another great wincon is having Protean Hulk die and search for Viscera Seer + Sylvan Safekeeper + Dryad Arbor and Body Snatcher, sacrifice Body Snatcher to Seer, reanimate Hulk, sacrifice Hulk and search for Mikaeus and Walking Ballista for the win.

Another wincon is Mikaeus + Triskelion.

Riftsweeper helps bring back exiled combo pieces, Dosan makes sure nobody interrupts my combo, Yisan and Fauna Shaman can fetch Dorks, Bears and combo pieces.

I try to use as many tutors and lands that make BG and ETB untapped as i can, obviously missing some expensive cards such as Grim Tutor, Imperial Seal and Mana Crypt, but i do plan to get them in the future.

That Meren alter is insane!! The deck is sweet too! I never considering going for a combo build with Meren since she screams good stuff graveyard shenanigans, but I like the way you went with your deck!

+1 given!

Feel free to check my own deck, any input is appreciated!

this is a sweet deck man, I would love to play it but do not feel like shelling out all that money for some of these cards. Can you think of any replacements for stuff like the expensive tutors.

alwayslateneverearly Not really sure, that makes the deck a lot slower, but maybe tutors that cost more mana, such as Diabolic Tutor.

Nice list! Have you considered Null Rod? It does a ton of work, especially in combination with Contamination. Here's my take on meren combo/stax if you want to check it out:

That shuts down altar/pod tho

It's still more than worth it. The effect is incredibly asymmetrical with all of the mana dorks you have access to; shutting down all of the good mana rocks is huge. In exchange, you lose access to a couple of nice but non-essential cards. You can always decide not to play Null Rod if you don't need it right then or if you really think you need an artifact ability. Being able to go hard on the Stax is one of Meren's biggest strengths, and Null Rod is a beast of a stax card.

What's your take on adding things like Animate Dead, Necromancy, and Dance of the Dead? Asking because I too play meren and am considering these in my own deck.
