Demonic Tutor Discussion

That's a good question. The deck is already pretty high-tuned, as you can't find any better alternatives to the likes of Mana Crypt and Force of Will, which are already included. Maybe you could go deeper on mana acceleration to make your turn 2-3 kills more consistent, but I wouldn't go for that route as the deck would become more all-in than it already is. I'm talking about the cEDH staples Mox Diamond and Lion's Eye Diamond. These cards will allow you to knock one player out by turn 2 with a godlike hand, but at a very high cost: your entire hand. After that, you would be defenseless against your other two opponents.
Some upgrades I would definitely make are Imperial Seal and Grim Tutor, which are the two best tutors apart from Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor. I would also like to experiment with a good old Yawgmoth's Will, as a way to get more value out of the draw spells we already cast.

Ring of Three Wishes can also help get cards in some decks.

Hey love seeing new meren decks out there. This is the deck that I have been using since meren has been out https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/graveyard-queen-meren-of-clan-nel-toth/ . I recommend taking a peak and hopefully there might be some fun stuff for you to find. If you have any questions on why I use or dont use certain cards feel free to ask.
So one thing Meren decks love to do is abuse ETB or LTB triggers and sac outlets. So I recommend any card that helps synergize with those type of effects or have those type of effects. A good ETB trigger is Terastodon, it blows up a lot of stuff and is easy to cast with cards like Natural Order or Pattern of Rebirth which I recommenced putting in your deck as well. Things that enjoy dying is nice like Mindslicer. This card is nice because it really hurts your opponenets but you enjoy having stuff in your graveyard so you benefit from having mind slicer be constantly sac.
Having a Demonic Tutor is nice but also any tutors that you can abuse will also be nice. For example Fierce Empath, Woodland Bellower, and Sidisi, Undead Vizier are really nice. A nice combo is fierce empath can tutor woodland for you and woodland can then get you any of your strong 3 drops, the reverse can happen as well. you can play woodland get fierce empath to enter and then you can get your hulk or combo piece out.
For planeswalker, Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip is an amazing one to have. I recommend cutting vraska but that is just because I personally think all the vraskas are bad for edh decks, especially meren edh decks.
If you want to be rude, Contamination is a nice card to lock out most decks with.
Also I recommend going down to 36 lands and then when you add more mana dork and ramp you should go below 36 lands. High Market is a good land cause its a 0 mana sac outlet for your deck.
If you want a strong and fair win, It That Betrays is really strong especially because it can steal other commanders.
I hope you end up having a lot of fun playing meren and I hope this advice helps out.

To streamline the combo: Demonic Tutor, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Vampiric Tutor (not budget), Beseech the Queen, Buried Alive, Jet Medallion, Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist, Helm of Awakening, Herald's Horn.

Hey, you're welcome. I'll take a look at your deck and leave a comment or two :)
If you have or can afford to get Demonic Tutor then adding it will help your deck. Demonic is in the Mystery Booster set, that version is $24 from TCGPlayer. However, if budget is a concern it's not a vital card because there's other options for tutors. $24 could be used for many other cards especially lands. Godless Shrine, Silent Clearing, Caves of Koilos, Fetid Heath, Isolated Chapel together is $25 and there's less options for good lands.

No fair enough, enpc - appreciate the heads up.
I've reworked the deck and taken it through a few test-draws. It feels really great, usually by turn 2 I have Karlov out and ramping up his counters very quickly, there's a lot of way to get this deck humming as you guys mentioned above, and because I own about 41 of the cards on the most recent version, this is going to cost me about $180. Only thing that I can maybe add is a Demonic Tutor however I am happy to roll it as is and get that later if need be.
Let me know what you guys think!

Hey, you're deck seems lackluster to you because opponent mill is a lackluster strategy in multiplayer Commander. Unless you're playing infinite opponent mill combos that you do in a single turn with Altar of Dementia, Altar of the Brood or wheels then opponent mill not a very good strategy when you have many opponents. Self-mill is very powerful since it can lead to quick reanimation, mass reanimation of creatures or assembling combos from your graveyard.
Play to the strengthens of your Commander; if mill is what you want to play then Varina, Lich Queen is an enabler for self-mill not opponent mill. If you want to be different than the other deck then play more white since that deck isn't playing white. Karmic Guide + Reveillark + Altar of Dementia is an infinite combo for self-mill and it can also reanimate all the 2 or less power Zombies/creatures in your graveyard. Self-mill until you find Corpse Knight and he becomes the win condition. With the high budget here add tutors to get Dementia, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Beseech the Queen, etc.
Living Death goes well with creatures + self-mill being able to reanimate all the creatures in your graveyard for five mana. Varnia gains you life when you self-mill making Command the Dreadhorde an option for a mass reanimation spell. Wonder is powerful with Varnia since she can discard it giving herself, all your Zombies/other creatures, if you control just one Island, flying. Wonder is good with Island dual lands and you have a lot of them as well as ways to search for one of them.
Good luck with your deck.
