Merieke Ri Berit Discussion

MoonHollow124 on Best Draw-go deck for causal ...

Is your meta aggro? Go Oloro, Ageless Ascetic

Is your meta slower? Go Grand Arbiter Augustin IV (You will draw hate thought) or Azor, the Lawbringer (nicer)

Is your meta creature-based? Consider Merieke Ri Berit + untap effects. More combo-y but can easily be done creatureless as you just get theirs. Lavinia of the Tenth can also defend against large creature decks.

Do you want your commander to be your finisher? Dragonlord Ojutai will get there. The Scarab God will also be able to reanimate all of their creatures that you kill to heh...amass you an army.

Do you want to play creatures? Ertai, the Corrupted can grind your opponents out. Enchantments? Zur the Enchanter enchantment toolbox could be fun but I have no idea.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents. I have literally 0% of these decks IRL so that's just my best guess. Have fun!

legendofa on The "M" Deck

If I may offer a couple of thoughts:

Morophon, the Boundless is the only commander option if you want more than three colors; none of the 4-color cards and none of the partners start with M. Green is by far the smallest color here, so unless there's some card you need in green, you might be able to cut it. That leaves Esper, Grixis, Jeskai, and Mardu as three color options, and Jeskai doesn't seem to have any commanders that start with M either.

So under my (very basic and shallow) analysis, your best bets are Morophon, the Boundless , Merieke Ri Berit , Mairsil, the Pretender , Marchesa, the Black Rose , Mishra, Artificer Prodigy (maybe?), or Mathas, Fiend Seeker .

I like the idea here! Here's what I'm thinking.

Like others have said, 27 land isn't doing any favors. I'd suggest shooting for around 34, 35.

Have you considered Merieke Ri Berit as Commander. That would give you access to spells like Control Magic , Clone , Phyrexian Metamorph , even Rite of Replication while also making the most of your white and black sweeps, control, and answers.

having a lot of tap/untap in my Merieke Ri Berit deck I would use Second Wind and Freed from the Real or even Niblis of the Breath even Hidden Strings would play into your gambits

The way you worded it, yes. However, Magewright's Stone would need to resolve and untap Merieke Ri Berit for the Sundial of the Infinite to even matter in this scenario. It is best to allow Magewright's Stone to resolve, therefore untapping Merieke Ri Berit . When her trigger goes on the stack, activate Sundial of the Infinite

For question 1, when Merieke Ri Berit becomes untapped, her destroy trigger will try to destroy any creature stolen by her. Since you have Darksteel Plate on the creature in question, it won't be destroyed (this time). Then you steal a second creature and switch the Plate, so you control two creatures, one of which has Darksteel Plate on it.

When your opponent destroys Merieke Ri Berit , her trigger goes on the stack and you lose control of both creatures (the Darksteel stays on the second creature until you re-equip it). When the trigger resolves, the first creature will be destroyed unless its controller finds a way to save it, while the second creature will be protected by the Darksteel Plate .

For question 2, if the Darksteel Plate is exiled before Merieke Ri Berit is destroyed, then the creature she stole is returned to its previous controller and then destroyed. If the Darksteel is still around when Merieke is destroyed, then the creature is returned to its previous controller and the trigger tries to destroy it but can't. After that point, even if Merieke Ri Berit is re-cast and then destroyed again, nothing happens to the creature she previously stole because you don't control it (Merieke is a new permanent with no memory of its previous existence, including creatures it stole).

The answer to both your questions is this: you shouldn't have control of that (or those) creatures any more. Merieke Ri Berit says you gain control of a creature as long as you control her, so if at any point you don't control her and the stolen creature isn't destroyed by her effect, it then returns to its owner with the Darksteel Plate still attached until you re-equip to something else.
