Awakening Zone

Enchantment

At the beginning of your upkeep, you may create a 0/1 colourless Eldrazi Spawn creature token. It has "Sacrifice this: Add "

Caerwyn on The Chorus of the Sliver

Aggravated Assault, Amoeboid Changeling, and Intruder Alarm are must-haves in a Sliver Overlord deck. With Aggravated Assault, you tap 6+ slivers to pay for the ability, net positive mana, and repeat forever. While this mana does not survive to a main phase, you can use it to tutor every single sliver in your library to your hand.

Just as importantly, it allows you to infinitely untap Amoeboid Changeling--you can then use the infinite mana you also generate alongside Sliver Overlord's ability to take every single creature your opponents control for your own.

Intruder Alarm works similarly--if you have enough slivers, you can pay for Overlord's tutor ability, cast the sliver you just tutored, untap all your mana-producing slivers, and repeat until you have played all or a significant chunk of the slivers in your deck.

To make room for these cards, I would personally cut the fog cards. Fogs are not particularly good in Commander--they buy you protection only for a single round of combat against a single player. Not exactly a great use of one of your precious cards. Other cards to consider cutting are Wild Growth (there are better ways to ramp with slivers), Prodigious Growth (which is not needed on slivers, as they all pump themselves), and Awakening Zone (which is too slow for how fast sliver decks want to move and not needed since most slivers have a low mana cost).

There isn't a rhino-specific commander, but what traits do rhinos have? Bulky bodies, a lot of trample and trample-ish evasion, and some stall with cards like Stonehorn Dignitary and Rhox Meditant.

I would say look for a subtheme and choose a commander based on that. Dragonlord Dromoka and Karametra, God of Harvests are good utility options for protection and ramp, respectively. If you're pumping the Rhinos, Sovereign Okinec Ahau pushes that into overdrive.

I got a lot of these decks in need of commanders. Please send over suggestions for

Enchantments: Citadel of Pain + Manabarbs + Personal Sanctuary sort of thing. I know Go-Shintai of Life's Origin exists, but I'm not interested in adding and/or to this one.

Curses and curse themed Auras: Lynde, Cheerful Tormentor + Eriette of the Charmed Apple. Again, I'm not interested in adding .

Reanimator

"Bleeder" attrition: Value over time. Awakening Zone, Suture Priest, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, that sort of thing.

Last Laugh Thanks for the suggestions! All those cards have great effects, but generally I prefer to play my effects on creatures in this deck so I can cast them off Food Chain, find them with my creature tutors, and cheat them in with things like Birthing Pod and Defense of the Heart.

Impact Tremors was cut from this deck for Zulaport Cutthroat when it was first printed for this reason, much more synergistic as a creature and generally paints a much smaller target on your head. I'll likely cut either artist or cutthroat once I finally pickup a copy of The Meathook Massacre. Similar story with Bastion of Remembrance, plus making off-color tokens is a pet peeve of mine.

Scepter of Celebration is new to me but seems like a great card, I certainly wouldn't cut Avenger of Zendikar from this deck for almost any reason but it could be a good budget replacement for something like Awakening Zone or a token doubler, but I don't know it makes the cut because I almost never have 3 extra mana after casting prossh to equip and it doesn't do much equipped anywhere else. Plus off color tokens again, silly citizens.

Thanks again, I'll give your deck a look!

I think more 1/1 token generators that work over time are the way to go, stuff like Rabble Rousing, Torens, Fist of the Angels and Rhys the Redeemed, also Wild Beastmaster seem really fun!

As far as cuts, Awakening Zone, Griffin Aerie, Arasta of the Endless Web and Sandwurm Convergence are all excellent cards, but they don't synergize with the commander so that could be a good set of swaps imo.

I like this commander though I gotta say, seems like fun

Krogania on 100 cards for Meren

I have found that Blood Pet works better than the Basal Thrull due to not needing to tap. In the similar vein there are two 3 cost creatures that only get two mana, but also don't need to tap, so you get access as soon as you recur them: Blood Vassal and Basal Sliver.

In the same vein, the two eldrazi enchantments work decent for mana when you have so many expensive spells, Awakening Zone and From Beyond.

Also, as Meren tends to receive a lot of hate (and you already have another Morph in your deck!), Gift of Doom can be great, and Kaya's Ghostform works vs basically everything (just not Cyclonic Rift type board wipes). Hope these help :)

Hey dude! Gonna try to keep this brief and not go down a brewing rabbit hole lol.

Have you considered extra combat phases? Your Commander's strategy obviously hinges upon you being able to attack with it, so doing it multiple times a turn is the way to go imho.

Although I wouldn't go overboard with it, there are a few worth thinking over such as Aggravated Assault, Combat Celebrant, Breath of Fury (extra good if you're running creatures that want to be sacrificed on your way to drawing cards via your Commander, Cathodion for example), Seize the Day, Savage Beating & World at War.

Creatures that sacrifice themselves could also be great, stuff like Ball Lightning, Groundbreaker & Lightning Skelemental can do a lot of damage. Blood Pet, Goldhound, Reckless Barbarian, Generator Servant, Tinder Wall, Wild Cantor & Basal Thrull draw and ramp you at the same time, which is pretty neat. Eldrazi token generators like Sifter of Skulls, From Beyond & Awakening Zone can help you keep that engine running in longer games. Haywire Mite, Caustic Caterpillar &Cankerbloom draw, control the board and replace their presence on your own board for a great rate.

There are a few value pieces worth thinking about as well, like, Pitiless Plunderer & Korvold, Fae-Cursed King.

Lastly, you need a lot more mana dorks, my guy. As many as possible.

Sorry for being so long-winded! Cheers!

GodzSoldier on An Innate Penchant for Sacrifice

Also, I imagine you prefer From Beyond better for its tutor effect, but perhaps consider Awakening Zone as your deck gives me the feeling you like your creatures to be able to die without needing another sacrificer
