Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Legendary Creature — Human Shaman

Whenever another creature you control dies, you get an experience counter. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield. Tokens enter the graveyard before they cease to exist.)

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.

Welcome to the club, Moonsteel!

Priest of Titania gives you massive amounts of green mana, which can lead into an equally massive Genesis Wave or similar effect. Since Meren of Clan Nel Toth wants creatures to die, and Elf decks are excellent at generating lots of creatures, look for some more sacrifice effects that let you control when and how creatures die.

Above all, have fun!

Oh man, speaking of Sidisi, Undead Vizier & Razaketh, the Foulblooded - Diabolic Intent is another no-brainer here.

Blood Pet & Basal Thrull are also greats recs, y'all! Those Eldrazi Token generators reminded me to mention Sifter of Skulls as well.

Not sure how I forgot to mention this in my 1st post, but Proliferate bangs here. Consider Plaguemaw Beast, Unnatural Restoration, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Karn's Bastion, Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine & Evolution Sage.

Also, a word of warning: there is no way to keep Meren of Clan Nel Toth ultra-casual. Her nature as a Reanimator steers her to higher power levels than casual pods aim for. You'll see what I mean as you continue to refine your decklist!

Any reason you don't run Meren of Clan Nel Toth in here? You don't lose XP counters when she dies, so you can just recur her with your Commander. You could also try out Coffin Queen and Hell's Caretaker to get more recursion in. Repeatable recursion makes things like Merciless Executioner pop in my experience. Not sure how much you get targeted, but Dawnstrider is a nice second Spore Frog, Dawnstrider is also a discard outlet.

I playtested this vs one of my more salty decks, it doesn't feel too oppressive to play against. I actually think your friend should build a deck designed to tweak your nose back if he feels triggered by your deck! The best way to learn to appreciate a deck or play style is to try it out yourself, obvious exceptions abound but I think there's a kernel of truth. I thought Chaos decks were always a bad thing, but when I decided to throw some Chaotic cards into a deck it worked out very well, and now I enjoy a boarder spectrum of Magic games.

KongMing on Pattern Recognition #285 - Aristocrats

My friend Questioned@3E made a great Aristocrats Commander deck that used when Meren of Clan Nel Toth was released. He used cards like Satyr Wayfinder, Viscera Seer, and Sakura-Tribe Elder for consistency. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest and Dictate of Erebos effects would oppress the field and keep it clear. And Meren lets you recur all your good stuff, over and over again.

DemonDragonJ on Warteye Witch or Phyrexian Vivisector?

1 year ago

I just put a copy of Warteye Witch into my Meren of Clan Nel Toth EDH deck, but another user informed me of Phyrexian Vivisector, so I now am not certain if I should replace the former card with the latter card, or not. The vivisector has lower power and does not trigger from its own death, but it also is less expensive to cast, which can make a major difference in certain situations.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I replace Warteye Witch with Phyrexian Vivisector?

EDIT: I just re-read Phyrexian Vivisector, and it does not specify another creature, so it seems that it does trigger from its own death; will anyone please clarify that matter, for me?

griffstick on Crystal Ball or Warteye Witch?

In most decks I would say Crystal Ball is better because you control when you scry plus scry 2 is better than scry 1. However in Meren of Clan Nel Toth I'd say it's about equal.

DemonDragonJ on Crystal Ball or Warteye Witch?

1 year ago

I have a copy of Crystal Ball in most of my EDH decks, but I am contemplating replacing the copy in my Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck with Warteye Witch, since the witch has obvious synergy with the rest of the deck.

What does everyone else say about this subject? Should I replace Crystal Ball with Warteye Witch?

DemonDragonJ on Should I Put Caustic Caterpillar …

1 year ago

I am contemplating putting both Caustic Caterpillar and Deadly Brew into my Meren of Clan Nel Toth EDH deck, but I am not certain which cards I should replace with them, or if I should even do so, at all.

I imagine that Caustic Caterpillar could replace Abrupt Decay, because, while I fully acknowledge that Abrupt Decay is an awesome card, the caterpillar works better with the sacrifice theme that this deck has, and Deadly Brew could replace Village Rites, since I already have numerous cards that allow me to sacrifice creatures to draw cards.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I put Deadly Brew and Caustic Caterpillar into my Meren deck?
