Ardees on Its Just a Flesh Wound (Budget cEDH Meren)

1 month ago

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 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.

Red05 - I would say it needs "more" self-mill not in the sense that more cards should self-mill, but the cards you include should each mill for more. Bang for card buck mill-wise.

It feels like the aim of this deck is to get the graveyard as full of some juicy keywords as quickly as possible, then let the beatdown commence with whatever creatures are on board after a Kathril play. The self-mill you have is somewhat limited or can't be played until later turns when you could already be falling behind. Dakmor Salvage is only good when you can consistently send it back to grave, Splinterfright just dies if you have no creatures in grave already, Stitcher's Supplier only mills 3 until your opponent decides to kill it, Deadbridge Chant and See the Unwritten require 6 mana which can take time, etc...

Pair that with the fact that there's only ~17 decent keyword providers at your disposal, the odds of ripping the several that you'll want to start with is low without more consistent mill. Some back-of-the-napkin math shows that even if you mill yourself for 6 cards there's still a ~1/3 chance that NONE of those creatures even get milled, let alone only milling some of the more tame keywords like flying or hexproof which by themselves probably won't win you any games.

Therefore, it feels like having some low-cost, high-yield self-mill options would be extremely valuable - the kind of thing where when you pull it in your opening hand or turn 2 you know you can get the ball rolling. You already have Nyx Weaver, Skull Prophet, World Shaper, and Death's Oasis which fits that bill, and having a couple more cards like those would add a lot more consistency. Mesmeric Orb (though a bit expensive) is reliable and even works on your opponents. As I mentioned before, dredge cards would be an especially nice conclusion since it means self-mill can lead you to more self mill when you don't need card draw. My personal favorite is probably Shambling Shell since it can sac itself turn after turn if you have just 3 mana and are desperate for grave fuel.

After messing around with a version of my own and trying some stuff out, easy discard outlets could also be a good inclusion in case you rip your meaty keyword cards into your hand and can't play them. Your Greenseeker fits nicely there, and Lotleth Troll can do the same but turning himself into more of a threat in the process.

i think you could get some use out of some of the better Moonfolk that return a land to your hand, combined with things that you have like Ayula's Influence. Meloku the Clouded Mirror and Uyo, Silent Prophet are probably the best but a couple other cool ones are Soratami Mirror-Mage and Soratami Savant. some other useful tricks to return lands to your hands are Vapor Snare, Deprive and Tragic Lesson. Trench Behemoth could also be an alternate win condition along the same vein. a few other land discard cards are Trade Routes and Compulsive Research. Greenseeker would also be very useful here. sweet deck overall and probably not room to add all of this but a few more tweaks could really make this shine.

TheoryCrafter on Lathril What Cards Do I Cut?

8 months ago

With all the permanents you have already that pump up your power and toughness, I think you can get away with cutting Overrun and Triumph of the Horde. Yes, TotH gives infect; but with all the Elf token makers you have, most of the time you'll kill off your opponents' life before you draw the card.

Another you can cut is Beast Within. If you're using it to sacrifice an elf, Your ability to create a lot of elf tokens negates the need. Opponents' board wipes will better feed your aristocrat permanents.

Cut these three and adding lands will depend on your average CMC per card. My advice is to replace Explosive Vegetation and Skyshroud Claim and replace them with less expensive Elves that tutor lands. They include, but are not limited to, Greenseeker, Sylvan Ranger and Wood Elves. It's not two lands on the battlefield, but you'll make up for it with a land earlier in the game and an elf.

Thank you for reading me out. I hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Other than that, reducing stax effects, like Eidolon of Rhetoric could lower the power level of your deck.

Also there are some cards I can think of that you could look at that would help lower the power level while still being fun and I would say powerful: Caustic Caterpillar, Vivien's Arkbow, Spore Frog, and Greenseeker.

SwiftDeath on Lord Windgrace

I like this as a casual deck. It has big creatures and can play some fun cards overall. I would say the same thing I did on your Tuvasa deck. It lacks a goal but that is less important with Lord Windgrace as you are given more freedom with this type of deck. I would recommend replacing your mana rocks with mana spells of suitable cmc's. For instance, Farseek, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, even creatures that can fetch land Greenseeker, Silverglade Pathfinder, Elvish Reclaimer. Don't be afraid of sacrificing your land or discarding land either cards like Sylvan Safekeeper, Squandered Resources and Hammer of Purphoros are good cards that have a range of effects that help with multiple angles.
