Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Legendary Creature — Human Shaman

Whenever another creature you control dies (is put into a graveyard from the battlefield), you get an experience counter.

At the beginning of your end step, choose target creature card in your graveyard. If that card's converted mana cost is less than or equal to the number of experience counters you have, return it to the battlefield. Otherwise, put it into your hand.

@DrukenReaps
It's OK if you disagree, everyone having a unique style of building/playing is one of the best parts of edh. Ive never been a fan of the hivemind found in 60 card formats. So i don't really want everyone to view things the way i do and I don't want to change your mind

If your just looking for some examples for inspiration I would suggest looking for some old Meren of Clan Nel Toth decks they were highly competitive decks that specialize in self sacrifice creatures with dredge & reanimate combos were accidentally drawing a reanimate target could ruin a game.

As for not needing ramp that could be any deck if you run your cmc to low you create an issue known as "running out of gas" or "top deck hero" were you consistently blow out your hand and the deck fizzles out. Anyone who has experienced this will testify the last thing there deck needs is ramp.

Epicurus Thanks for the comment and suggestions!! Really appreciate it. I am aware of the loss of cast and attack trigger with the eldrazi. The only reason why I am playing them is because I am in the process of converting my Animar, Soul of Elements deck to hydra tribal, (eldrazi were in there as "fillers"). I wanted to throw them in this list because they're fun as hell and scary to see as early as I can get them out. Might be making a Meren of Clan Nel Tothlist soon to transfer them over and use some of your suggestions for this deck. As far as the unblockables you listed I love them and am gonna try to find space. Thanks again for the comment and the upvote. Have a great one!

I've been enjoying Feather, the Redeemed recently, as I usually focus more on graveyard decks. If you do want to play around in the yard, both Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver can get you some serious value pretty quickly

Lol your comment page is getting long. Had to scroll for a min.

Yeah I took a quick peak and there are a few tweaks/upgrades you can run over some others I think that wont be too overbudget.

I'd run:

Burnished Hart (under $2) or my favorite Yavimaya Elder (under $1) overDawntreader Elk/Neverwinter Dryad

So if your gonna pay to play lands you might as well get 2 for the price of one. Right? These 2 all stars allow you to pull 2 lands (deck thinning) and elder is even a static trigger which means you can sac to other outlets and still get value...soon much value lol.

Living Death(under $10) over Culling Ritual

Honestly I see the appeal in both. Culling however is more local meta based with high end, low cmc deck opponents. Living death covers a better wide meta and pairs amazingly with Dauthi Voidwalker, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or even a Scavenging Ooze

Toski, Bearer of Secrets ($10) over Oakhame Adversary

If your running a draw engine like this toski is a clear winner over adversary because he covers each attacking creature so you can draw multiple cards per turn instead of 1.

Veil of Summer (under $10) over Heroic Intervention

This is a meta call swap. I like Veil because it protects you from counters and the 2 of the most popular wipe spells colors. And draws a card. But if your group is heavy on red and white intervention is better.

For Junji, the Midnight Sky I usually replace creature for creature but in your decks case you can trim a reanimate since you have about 9 not including Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Best replacement creature for creature is taking out Apprentice Necromancer, otherwise Dread Return or Life / Death.

I say these 2 because of the exile clause and death only targets your yard un-like Reanimate, Animate Dead, and Necromancy which allow you to hit any yard.

Also you may want to add another free sac outlet. I highly recommend Altar of Dementia. It's budget friendly at around $10 ATM from mm2. Mill opponents and fills your yard fast. Great replacement for one of the extra reanimate spells you have.

So excited to see this deck! I had Ishkanah, Grafwidow for awhile before the announcement for Chatterfang, Squirrel General came out. I might make a few suggestions: Doom Weaver and Graverobber Spider with some sort of sac outlet is great. Also, Hatchery Spider did a lot of great work for me. Last spiders that I loved are Sporeweb Weaver, Watcher in the Web and Sweet-Gum Recluse.

I’ve found that cards like Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Syr Konrad, the Grim are particularly powerful with the spider tribe and what they’re doing. You can get extra value out of them by throwing in a Maskwood Nexus and making them all spiders themselves.

Lastly, I’d look at your ramp for this. Three Visits or Nature's Lore or Skyshroud Claim. Deathcap Cultivator and Elves of Deep Shadow are nice dorks. She’s a little pricey, but if you can get Liliana of the Dark Realms you’ve got fabulous creatures to protect her.

Sorry, that was a lot, but it love the deck and had a lot of peoples say spiders aren’t that good. Hope you have fun with it!

One of my friends have a Meren of Clan Nel Toth with Spore Frog in it. I have a Nikya of the Old Ways deck. When he gets his spore frog its really difficult for me to win. But I had a sweet victory last time we played.

T1: Forest + Fyndhorn Elves

T2: Forest + Azusa, Lost but Seeking + Forest + Mountain.

T3: Forest + Forest + Mountain + Nikya of the Old Ways + Xenagos, God of Revels + (give xenagos buff to Nikya and swing)

T4: topdeck Worldspine Wurm

He had only one creature so he couldnt block enough dmg. I didnt win the game due to a boardwipe 2 turns later but i took out 2 players with my fast wurm

Removed Ochran Assassin added more creature-based reanimation Doomed Necromancer also trying out Grim Hireling removed Victimize which I realize is reanimation. But I believe Meren of Clan Nel Toth is better with creature-based effects.
