Triton on Letter of Acceptance or Unstable …

Definitely agree against Decanter- as far as ramp goes, my personal rule of thumb for green decks is land-based ramp spells unless the rock is fast mana (a lo Sol Ring. TheOfficialCreator made some great suggestions for ramp in Meren! I'd also recommend creature-based removal as well like Fleshbag Marauder effects (absolutely backbreaking in Meren), Caustic Caterpillar, and Ravenous Chupacabra.

as far as suggestions go, in my experience ive liked Outland Liberator  Flip more than Caustic Caterpillar. I also like your use of the cycling lands thats cool tech

Remove:
4x Mortality Spear
2x Forest

Add:
1x Academy Manufactor
3x Binding the Old Gods
2x Boseiju, Who Endures

Also, manabase updated to reflect reality a little better.


I hate removing instants, but having crucial removal spells that can be found with Trail of Crumbs is important. It might be better to keep a pair of Mortality Spear in or go to 4x Wicked Wolf and replace the other three with Caustic Caterpillar or Green Slime, but testing will tell.

meecht on Stardew_Vale's Guide to Ezuri Claw of Progress EDH

Looter il-Kor and Crystal Shard were pretty good in my Ezuri deck years ago. Crystal Shard isn't seen very often which means you can sometimes bounce an opponent's big play, but it also lets you reuse ETBs on your own creatures.

I also recommend running something like Viridian Zealot or Caustic Caterpillar to get around the occasional Torpor Orb-like effect.

Grind on Meren

cool deck!!! it looks great.
a couple comments:
I prefer Caustic Caterpillar and Reclamation Sage over acidic slime because of lower mana cost. the caterpillar is great because you can recur him and he sacs himself.
i prefer Regrowth to restock as 2 mana is much easier to pay than 5.
having sac outlets is very important to meren, High Market is decent, as is Viscera Seer.
having recurrable creatures that double as removal is great for controlling the board. some options are: Big Game Hunter, Nekrataal, Bone Shredder, Plaguecrafter, Demon's Disciple.
creatures with innate recursion are useful, i like Reassembling Skeleton.
some great low mana value enchantments: Phyrexian Reclamation, Animate Dead.
it's good to pack draw spells, some to consider, Life's Legacy, Momentous Fall, Rishkar's Expertise, Skullclamp.
last comment, more ramp is good, and boardwipes might be helpful. Decree of Pain is solid because it can draw you a ton of cards. and lots of good ramp in green out there, i like to run 10 ramp cards. Wood Elves can fetch you Haunted Mire, 2 mana ramp like three visits and nature's lore are good, or cultivate and kodama's reach are solid performers. when deciding what to cut, i look at the top of the mana curve. having fewer 5, 6, and 7 drops will help make your early game more consistent and will make your deck more competitive.
anyway just some thoughts, hope it helps and keep on having fun!!!

Grind on Muldrotha reanimator 2.0

cool deck!
i really like low mana value, permanent cards that are removal in muldrotha. Seal of Removal, Nihil Spellbomb, Caustic Caterpillar are surprisingly good.
i like Mana Reflection but it is a bit greedy.
i also run Mindslaver as a finisher, not sure if you're into that.

Hey, good start on a low budget. I think you can optimize what you currently have even more since there's 16 high mana cost cards here.

Some advice to consider, fill the rest of the deck spots with one, two or three CMC cards since the high end part of your deck is done? One drop budget creatures who can sac themselves are excellent support with Meren.

Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder are sac outlets which could use more of those to get experience counters. There's not much draw here that Meren can take advantage of. Consider more repeatable draw when you sac creature/creature dies?

Morbid Opportunist can trigger on an opponents turn if any creature dies not just your own creature. Body Launderer loots each time a creature you control dies, helps to setup Meren reanimation. Can also get more draw from single effects.

Budget one drop mana dorks can be ramp who can be saced/die later on for experience counters.

Arcane Signet is an upgrade for Golgari Signet and Talisman of Resilience is another Golgari mana rock. Some budget lands to consider adding/upgrades:

Woodland Chasm gives Wood Elves a Golgari Forest land to search for.

Good luck with your deck.

DreadKhan on Meren (becoming) cEDH

What do you usually fetch out with Protean Hulk, and am I right in assuming that's usually how you win, dig out Hulk which digs out an infinite combo?

You might take a look at Dawntreader Elk and Diligent Farmhand, maybe Yavimaya Granger, as ways to ramp while generating XP. It's also nice that Meren can recur one of these if you've got nothing strictly better to be recurring, ramp and XP are generally a good thing that will let you do something bigger later.

It's not cheap, but Entomb is pretty helpful for cEDH Meren, as is Veil of Summer and perhaps Autumn's Veil, you want those two often to deal with the endless interaction. There is also Imp's Mischief to help out. In cEDH I think I'd want to run Culling Ritual, both for the big mana and to wipe out most permanents, people don't run a ton of high MV permanents, so even if it will hit some of your stuff it'll hit everyone else harder.

I would definitely cut Putrefy for something better, probably a creature that removes stuff like Plaguecrafter (there are quite a few that are slightly worse), I would even run a couple of these creatures, they are often a very good thing to recur with Meren. I would remove your other spell-based removal for stuff like that and use Caustic Caterpillar or Foundation Breaker, removal that you can repeat feels good when you're not using much/any mana to do it. You can probably run stuff like Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy, they are among the best removal spells ever printed.

For some extra card draw, I like Grim Haruspex and Midnight Reaper, conveniently you can sac them to prevent decking yourself.
