I like Dryad Arbor, and Meren can really abuse it. I don't like that it's affected by summoning sickness. It basically makes it a CC mana dork, but making it a creature to sac to Meren is very nice.

If you're looking for more card draw, Infernal Tribute is a nice addition.

Is there any reason in particular that you are running Codex Shredder? It doesn't seem like it has much use in this deck.

By "Steve," do you mean Devoted Druid? I just don't see any reason to run with him, and I don't really feel like adding Quillspike to the mix, as they would only end up interacting with each other. However, I do think I need to add some more artifact/enchantment removal, so I will be looking into that.

Nice build, looks like fun to play. Some cards you might look into just for the fun factor of playing them are Call of the Wild and Game Preserve. The Preserve is a bit more group-hug, but sometimes that works in your favor. You've got a lot of cards that are revealing the top card of your library anyways, so getting another creature on the board without casting it can be useful.

You can do the same with Brion, but at the cost of each time, so it limits the repeatability a little bit. I think Bloodshot Cyclops ends up being a great finisher, even without the lifelink.

I like it. I like your use of reanimation spells to go along with Meren's ability to get more than one value creature out at a time if needed. I like Greater Good as an additional draw engine. I should look to see if I have one lying around. I think I should look at adding High Market to my build as well. Not sure why I overlooked that one.

Love the combos, especially Mike and Trike. +1 from me!

DarkJunderMaster, thank you for the comments and suggestions, and the +1! Devoted Druid got taken out because I felt like I got better value out of Sakura-Tribe Elder. I'm not running Mike and Trike because Mike is a $20 card I don't have. Your third combo isn't one I was aware of, but looks a bit nicer, price wise, and could be an option for the deck, but I'd rather not exile cards I could reuse with Meren. I added Butcher of Malakir because with Meren out, he can be recurred if its needed, as the enchantments can't if they get removed. Just one more option to have.

I keep tinkering with it, so if I come across the chance to plug some of those in and try it, I'll let you know.

I would like for you to lay out the third combo for me, Necrotic Ooze + Phyrexian Devourer and Triskelion.

I'll take a look at your build.

There are plenty of budget dual lands you can go with to improve your mana base: Boros Guildgate, Stone Quarry, Wind-Scarred Crag, and Boros Garrison are all common or uncommon, and cheap enough to add to the deck without breaking a budget. City of Brass is a popular staple for multicolor decks, and isn't too costly. Inspiring Vantage, Needle Spires, Ancient Amphitheater, Battlefield Forge, and Temple of Triumph all come in at well under $5 a piece, and most under $2. All would help you improve and balance out your mana base.

Thanks, Forkbeard. That was a combo someone else pointed out to me, and thought, "Yeah, that's going in there." I've got the last of the cards en route to put that together, and am looking forward to playing it. I might swap Grimgrin, Corpse-Born as the commander and see how it runs, too, but I don't have quite as much mill going on to make him work consistently. I think I'd have to do a build more similar to yours.

I'd love to help you here, but I don't know anything about how monarch and dethrone work, or what they really mean.

You might consider Brion's little brother, Bloodshot Cyclops. You don't get the lifegain, but if you put Thornbite Staff on him, you can sac until you run out of creatures.

I can't recommend Reya Dawnbringer and Adarkar Valkyrie enough. Also, and I'm sure people get tired of me mentioning this one, Lifeline works well in a Brion deck, and would bring back cards like Serra Avatar and Hamletback Goliath. Yes, Lifeline works for other players, too, but you've got to figure you will get more value out of it than the others around the table will.

May 19, 2017 6:58 p.m.

Nice build, really like it. I've got a similar deck I'm finishing up, but I run Gisa and Geralf as the commander. But, I do run Grimgrin, Corpse-Born in the 99, and now I look forward more than ever to playing it. Its nice to also see that I could switch out the two as commanders if I so choose.

Said on Do you even ......


You should really find a way to work in Adarkar Valkyrie, Reya Dawnbringer, and I play a Brion deck with Lifeline in it.

Also, you might run more theft cards, like Act of Treason, Lose Calm, Mark of Mutiny, and the like. Why fling your own creatures all the time when you can fling others? Steal a creature, attack with it, then throw it back to them. Now that's card value.

Here is the list I currently run:

Seedborn Muse is nice, but a bit pricey. Thanks for letting me copy the deck. That will help with making changes and keeping track of it. Right now, I have it put together in your original build. So that's how I'll list it to start with. Then I might have you pop in and work with me on switches for Palinchron and Deadeye Navigator combos.

That's what I thought, but wanted confirmation. Thank you.

Question on control of enchantment creatures that are bestowed onto opponent's creatures. I cast Nimbus Naiad on an opponent's creature. When I destroy that creature, does the Nimbus Naiad return to my control, or the owner of the creature I cast it on? I think it returns to me, like the older licid spells would, but want to make sure.

chaosumbreon87, I was wondering if it would be ok if I did a copy of this deck under my account here, so I could add cards to the maybe board, make changes, etc. I don't think I can do any of that right now, since you are the one that built the deck. I wanted to check with you first.

I thought this card from Amonkhet looked like a nice fit: Bounty of the Luxa.

May 17, 2017 1:20 p.m.

I really like the looks of it now! Love the combos, especially the addition of Intruder Alarm.
