Melira, Sylvok Outcast Discussion

If your going for a meren stax build there are some fun cards to consider, Sheoldred, Whispering One is a power house for you and against your opponents, Necropotence should be in every black deck, Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos both lock out your opponents nicely with all the sacing you intend, Life from the Loam does lots of work in any graveyard deck, if you still want combos and to lock Melira, Sylvok Outcast pairs well with many cards to create grave stax combos such as Woodfall Primus, Puppeteer Clique are good ones to control your opponents graveyard and boardstate, Sadistic Hypnotist can help control their hand, Magus of the Abyss is also fun since everyone has to sac then it can sac itself just to have meren return it at turns end, (on the issue of mana real quick tho since you have all the other mana dorks you might as well pick up an Elves of Deep Shadow to complete.) Combo all this with all the free sac outlets you can find like Altar of Dementia/Ashnod's Altar type cards. well there are others but I think you get the idea, meren works really well with the creature and sac based stax not so much as with the more classic stax requiring tapping and cost shenanigans, tbh meren can be played in lots of different ways, hopefully some of this helps :)

great deck... but too much removal and too little card draw. many more cards such as Thrill of Possibility would be great in this deck to keep it going. about half the cards in your deck are removal, and I would consider taking out the more nonbudget removal spells for a wincon such as Melira, Sylvok Outcast. this card is only 2 mana and can provide an easy way to win with creatures such as Rotting Regisaur

Yeah as you said people seem to have very different reactions to effectively similar tactics, for example if I lock the board with a Magus of the Tabernacle + Winter Orb with an Azors elecutors out I'd recieve much more hate than if I threw down a Melira, Sylvok Outcast + Woodfall Primus even though the later is far nastier and far more difficult to break out of

Hey awsome deck I love Meren and +1 from me for be the only other person running Mind Slash, I dont card if it's not Mana Crypt its damn fun lol, anywho I see you have Puppeteer Clique, some fun cards you might like Melira, Sylvok Outcast just hilarious or play this with Woodfall Primus + any free sac outlet as well, it's fun to blow up their lands and pass turn. Then in every black producing deck I always recommend Necropotence and if you want some shenanigans to happen with that already broken card play Reliquary Tower or Venser's Journal it's a good time. Then lastly you cant really feel golgari without a Life from the Loam easily one of the hardest working cards of all time, need grave presence>loam, need land>loam, need to recure artifacts? Add a Buried Ruin and bam>loam, and that's just for starters, good luck and feel free to check out my meren deck maybe you'll see something you like Meren, The Grave Walker, good luck!

Yes there is a concern that Joraga Treespeaker could be underwhelming, however in relationship to the Zirda, the Dawnwaker and Umbral Mantle combo, it represents a huge upside in that it can create infinite mana in addition to providing a 9th mana-dork for the combo in the first place. Yes there may be better options for the ninth mana dork in terms of efficiency, but wanting that extra copy Joraga Treespeaker has the highest upside in that slot. I do agree though that it is not the strongest of cards and there is potential that a different card could be better suited to that flex slot in the future. I have however been greatly impressed with Joraga Treespeaker thus far and for now at least am going to continue with it as a ninth mana-dork.
As for Devoted Druid, I did address this in short in the introduction that, yes, Devoted Druid combo is likely still the strongest thing to do in G/W Value, and the Lurrus of the Dream-Den based deck that has grown around that is very good, I however am very intrigued by the potential of Zirda, the Dawnwaker and believe that, with some work, this build could at the very least rival the Devoted Druid builds. Now, if I could play Devoted Druid in this deck I would, the combo would be too powerful to pass up and having that with Zirda, the Dawnwaker could potentially be incredible. Unfortunately, while Devoted Druid can be played within the conditions set by Zirda, the Dawnwaker, none of its enablers can, both Vizier of Remedies and Melira, Sylvok Outcast do not meet the condition. If an enabler exists I would play it, but if I am to continue with Zirda then unfortunately, until such a card is printed, Devoted Druid is just not something this deck can realistically do and still keep Zirda.
Thank you for the comment, I hope my response was at all informative.

Rain of Knowledge
Draw X cards, where X is 1 plus the number of charge counters on it.
Return a land to your hand: Put two charge counters on Rain of Knowledge. You may choose a new target for it. Any player may play this ability but only if Rain of Knowledge is on the stack.
So, yesterday, I posed this challenge to no reply, so I'll repost it.
Also not like a Magus of Stasis-type deal or Magus of the Moon, but like Yixlid Jailer, Melira, Sylvok Outcast, Vexing Shusher (kinda?), Stigma Lasher, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Ash Zealot, Tunnel Ignus, Harsh Mentor, and Immolation Shaman.

Mzuzi the Unlucky
Legendary Planeswalker - Mzuzi
Spells your opponents cast that target you or permanents or spells you control cost less to cast.
+2: Each opponent creates a 3/3 green Beast creature token. During each opponent's next turn, creatures that player controls attack Mzuzi the Unlucky if able.
+2: Target opponent gains control of Mzuzi the Unlucky.
-9: You get an emblem with "If you have cards in your graveyard, you can't lose the game." and "As long as you have 0 or less life, whenever you lose life, for each 1 life you lost, exile a permanent you control or a card from your hand or graveyard."
The static is based on Accursed Witch Flip, the first +2 is based on Gideon Jura/goad as a mechanic, and other +2 is based on Harmless Offering as well as Gilded Drake-type effects. The ultimate is a mix of Worship, Phyrexian Unlife, and Lich's Mastery.
I couldn't really think of a green aspect, so I just gave everyone some beasts to attack Mzuzi with.
Also not like a Magus of Stasis-type deal or Magus of the Moon, but like Collector Ouphe (I'm aware is't Null Rod), Yixlid Jailer, Melira, Sylvok Outcast, Vexing Shusher (kinda?), Stigma Lasher, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Ash Zealot, Tunnel Ignus, Harsh Mentor, and Immolation Shaman.
