Instant

Destroy target creature. Search your library for a basic land card, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

Avenger of Zendikar Scute Swarm Beastmaster Ascension Ogre Slumlord Old Rutstein Fresh Meat Deathsprout Harrow Overrun Necrotic Hex Bone Shards Migration Path Moldervine Reclamation Deathreap Ritual

and of course pocket sand: Blinding Powder

All good card you added. Got some recommendations but consider making sure your deck follows this formula: 10ish ramp cards 10ish card draw cards 4 spot removal cards 4 boardwipes

Suggestions from someone who started from a total junk Meren deck in 2015, and through the years made it to a cEDH (check the playlist here if you want: Meren Surgical Toolbox [2K22]:

More generally, have a look at EDHREC.com to see what cards best fit a budget Meren deck. No offense, but even as a budget your deck certainly needs much improvement. That is, assuming you don't run cards for their flavor or because you just like them. Then that's totally up to you.

Profet93, all good points. I have a copy of Contamination, but don't feel like being that cutthroat; same reason I didn't run Grave Pact and similar cards. Bitterblossom is fantastically out of budget for me, and I don't own a copy.

You'll get no arguments from me on the benefits of Skullclamp. If I find one laying around, I'll consider getting it added. Otherwise, I've got some fun interactions for card draw right now. I agree that Deathsprout is costly. But, it's also like casting Murder and Rampant Growth in the same spell. It may get replaced someday. Arcane Signet will likely get worked in at some point, too.

Thanks for looking and making the suggestions! It's good to hear from you!

You need definitely more lands.

Very rough breakdown of a Commander deck:

  • 45-50 mana sources (for example: at least 36 lands and 9 ramp spells)
  • 8-10 removal spells (4-5 spot removal / 4-5 mass removal)
  • 8-10 draw options
  • Rest is for strategy of the deck.

Some options for the deck:

Draw

Removal

Ramp

Removal and ramp

Strategy:

The deck needs more focus: Do you want a fungus / sapproling tribal deck or a +1/+1 counter deck Maybe a better commander for the deck:

Cheap permenants that you can lay down with Vaevectis or other similar cards that then also give you mana: Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, and Solemn Simulacrum and Yavimaya Elder also lets you draw so you can sac him with Asmadi for a profit. For similar "when permanent enters the battlefield" effect maybe Reclamation Sage and Acidic Slime.

Consider creating tokens to sac with Asmadi as well: Dragonlair Spider and Grave Titan

Asmadi is always a huge threat so you'll have to keep him safe with cards like Sylvan Safekeeper Swiftfoot Boots and Whispersilk Cloak.

Chaos Warp is a staple of jund and you could use it if someone tries to get rid of Asmadi. Deathsprout and Decimate are really good jund removal cards as well. Primal Surge is a lot of mana but a good alternative win condition.

Also assuming that Asmaldi gets to stay on the field then here are some good cards that let you make sure whatever you get with him is good: Augur of Autumn, Haunted Crossroads, Hua Tuo, Honored Physician, Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire, Brutalizer Exarch, Courser of Kruphix, Vizier of the Menagerie, Crystal Ball, and Call of the Wild. On the other hand, here are some cards to make sure whatever your opponents get from Asmaldi isn't good: Painful Memories, Agonizing Memories.

Then here are some big creatures you could get for free with Asmaldi: Woodfall Primus, Borborygmos Enraged, Kodama of the East Tree, and Artisan of Kozilek. Lurking Predators is also useful for this feature as well as setting up what's on top of your deck.

Mortuary Mire is probably a good addition to the deck as well.

My dumb brain wants to add more black cards for balance's sake, though making a Simic deck that can run black board wipes is such a clever way of handling Archelos since nothing about his design screams Black in a gameplay sense. Forcing the third color beyond a small splash would risk muddling the streamlined approach you took for the deck.

Anyway, lemme ignore that and suggest more Black stuff.

Binding the Old Gods can grab you any forest card untapped (including the nonbasic ones) after destroying something while Archelos is untapped. It's effectively removal and potential untapped land ramp in a neat little package, made better by the fact that your land is going to come into play at the beginning of your upkeep after Archelos naturally untaps by himself without any additional help.

Similar principle with Deathsprout

Royal Assassin seems pretty neat for obvious reasons

Skeletal Swarming and might also be worth considering if you want some untapped skeletons. Dunno how that would help with the landfall strat tho.

Hey Kiefy! Oh man, that's soooo great! Haha, I've never fought a sliver deck with this before, I feel like that would be a tough fight. I'm not surprised Grist gave you the best game - he's DISGUSTINGLY good. I can't wait to pick one up and slot it in.

As for the others, I'm actually thinking of adding Hornet Queen too, which I'd swap out probably for Stingerfling Spider

For the rest, here are my anticipated swaps:

Let me know if you make any of these swaps and how you like them! I'm really so excited that you enjoy the deck. Very cool.
