Finally we get some squirrel suppport. Currently I'm working on a squirrel deck too - even if i know, that it will be a more... meme-like or fun-deck than somewhat competitive. I saw, you're suggest using Earl of Squirrel , so your playgroup doesn't mind using Silver Bordereds? Then I have a few silver bordered suggestions: Acornelia, Fashionable Filcher - pump effect and cute acorn-counter Squirrel Dealer - Funny card though Squirrel Farm - funny token creator

others: Ivy Lane Denizen - pumps your army

Scurry Oak - can go nuts with Ivy Lane Denizen ... get it? it goes nuts :D

Vanquisher's Banner - anthem and draw effect

Realmwalker - plays Top-cards and counts as a squirrel

Witch's Oven Sac-Outlet and the food-token generates a new Squirrel with Chatterfang

Vivien, Monsters' Advocate - generates Tokens which works well with chatterfang plus tutor-ish effect Sylvan Anthem - Anthem and card quality even on tokens

Swarmyard - regenerates squirrels

Return of the Wildspeaker - extraordinary strong card

Ohran Frostfang - let your opponent choose between trading or to let you draw cards.

Moldervine Reclamation - dying creatures wont hurt you anymore

Mimic Vat - See Moldervine Reclamation but repeatable

Adaptive Automaton - Anthem effect for Squirrels

Beastmaster Ascension - huge anthem

Creakwood Liege - Anthem and token generator

Ezuri's Predation - REmoval which works prett well with tokens

Bramble Sovereign - Because i love this card

If you want to make it more competitive, it might not be sexy, but the first and most important thing imo ist to lower the mana curve: For every card, ask yourself if a cheaper card exists that does about the same.

1-Mana Mana Dorks over more expensive stuff. they also fuel Meren really early, which really gets her going

Llanowar Elves

Elvish Mystic

Arbor Elf

Fyndhorn Elves

taking out

Burnished Hart

Rampant Growth

Primal Growth

Sifter of Skulls

I would take out Final Parting and maybe add Green Sun's Zenith , Tutor and mana dork along with Dryad Arbor .

A bit more card draw, for example Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Dark Confidant , Village Rites , Oakhame Adversary

Out:

Golgari Findbroker - too expensive. Meren does, that already

Zulaport Cutthroat - the deck doesn't look like it wins via this, so you don't need it

Blood Artist - same

Syr Konrad, the Grim - same - maybe I underestimate the chip damage from these but I really dislike these Cards, because the don't do anything unless they stay araound for a long time. If you only deal 20 damage to the table with blood artist style cards, which seems generous, you still don't win.

I would rather have a more reliable win condition, a combo to end the game asap or a really powerful value engine, that gives you the staying power, paired with a bit of stax, Mindslicer comes to mind, while you get some kind of beatdown (I like Creakwood Liege , Craterhoof Behemoth with a bit of a board also kill one to two people quite quick) or stuff like a few Kokusho, the Evening Star or Gray Merchant of Asphodel triggers.

Random suggestions Some haymakers like Terastodon , Mikaeus, the Unhallowed or Protean Hulk to have some good Reanimation targets Cool Utility:

Puppeteer Clique

Bane of Progress

Collector Ouphe

Nature's Claim - my pet card

IzmAYAYA: I think the changes you made -- removing Second Harvest and Deathreap Ritual were very good ones. I'm glad the deck worked smoothly! (Also, Noxious Revival is strictly better than Reclaim, whenever you feel like an upgrade.)

If you find you can't always attack well on T3, you could try out the new Demonic Embrace and see if that helps you! I also find the deck gets stronger as your interaction and tutors get lower in CMC -- or as you play less lands that enter the battlefield tapped :)

Of the potential additions, I've honestly wanted to add all of those myself. My first thoughts for cuts would be Creakwood Liege, Leyline Prowler, one land, and Rampant Growth.

abby315 on Meren to Nethroi

The above comment about sums it up for me, unless you were planning to take it in a combo or other kind of direction! Here are some good Nethroi targets that have low power but make tokens or have good effects when they enter:

Biogenic Ooze Blade Splicer Master Splicer
Maul Splicer
Sensor Splicer
Noosegraf Mob
Chittering Witch
Creakwood Liege
Akroan Horse
Pentavus
Deep Forest Hermit
Deranged Hermit
Nut Collector
Duplicant
Geist-Honored Monk
Ghave, Guru of Spores
God-Eternal Oketra
Hornet Queen
Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
Tendershoot Dryad
Trostani Discordant Trostani's Summoner

Most of the above cards create creature tokens, so you'll probably want the usual: Doubling Season, Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives if you include a lot of them.

Here are some 0-power utility creatures to consider, because they're free to reanimate if they get killed:

Arboreal Grazer
Birds of Paradise
Devoted Druid
Incubation Druid
Faeburrow Elder
Custodi Soulbinders
Embodiment of Agonies
Fertilid
Golgari Grave-Troll (also a great include because Dredge can fill your GY)

And you'll also want at least a few additional Mutaters in case you have Nethroi out and want to trigger it again:

Cubwarden
Auspicious Starrix
Cavern Whisperer
Gemrazer
Dirge Bat
Mindleecher
Migratory Greathorn
Necropanther
Sawtusk Demolisher

...all seem like good includes.

Hope this gives you a good place to start and a list of interesting cards to consider. Many are very affordable. Now I kinda want to make a Nethroi deck.

Have fun!

Vash13 thanks for the suggestions! I was thinking about Tortured Existence for my deck and you convinced me! Took out Creakwood Liege. I agree that Fiend Artisan is a great idea! Next paycheck maybe! Haha, I want to get it foil if I can. Greater Good seems like a great idea but I worry with my whinny deck it might not be worth it. Great suggestions dude!
