Merieke Ri Berit Discussion

Skullclamp? Really... what commander has 1 toughness and can circumvent the growing command tax in order to exploit Skullclamp? Genuine question here... otherwise I don't see how clamp working on your commander is all that much better than clamp working on the other 16-32 creatures already in your deck...”

@DuTogira, To answer your question, the payout is totally worth it for any commander so long as your general is Empress Galina, Merieke Ri Berit or Rubinia Soulsinger and you have a sac outlet available. I assure you that you’ll hardly notice the command tax at all!

Here are my thoughts on your suggestions:

Numot, the Devastator As you said in your previous message, his trigger is conditional+mana. Are you suggesting that in this case the effect is worth it? For some poor soul, two blown up lands can be devastating.

Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is not in my deck since my meta is Control Magic heavy. One player runs a Merieke Ri Berit deck and another runs Braids, Conjurer Adept. Braids will be awesome for me to drop dragons for free but he has alot of clone effects in his deck, making Karrthus a big liability.

Sarkhan Unbroken was in my initial draft but I ended up cutting him.. a mistake on my part? Are you usually happy to draw him vs a dragon or a more interactive card?

Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh is an awesome card.. already on my short list to add if I can find room for it.

I blew by Sarkhan the Mad during my research, not being overly impressed by his first two abilities. I usually don't put too much value on the ultimate since they are rarely attained... however this madman can ult on turn 1, which I missed. I suppose it can be a kill blow with a large board presence, is that why you are recommending him? It's kind of a win-more card isn't it? Worth the slot?

Jegantha's mana can only be used to pay for colored mana, therefore only reducing Dragonstorm down to 8 CMC, however I can see that even with a storm count of 1 or 2 this can be a powerhouse finisher. What's your experience with it?

I see Maelstrom Wanderer often in various decklists.. I fail to see the appeal. He's not a dragon, and there are already many haste enablers in the deck for much cheaper, so it must be the cascade, cascade. I'm not a fan of the variability here, with my luck it will hit a couple of 2-3 CMC ramp/removal.

I have been on the receiving end of Xenagos, God of Revels enough to know that it would be a true powerhouse in this deck. Added to shortlist.

My meta is not control heavy, pass on Surrak Dragonclaw for now.


Yes: Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh, Xenagos, God of Revels

Maybe?: Numot, the Devastator, Sarkhan Unbroken, Sarkhan the Mad, Dragonstorm

No: Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund, Maelstrom Wanderer, Surrak Dragonclaw

I am forever grateful for all the help you have provided so far! Having said that... what I am most likely in need of next is more discussion on what cards I could cut.

You can do theft tribal with Merieke Ri Berit. Untap effects with her also result in destroying creatures too.

sam171z Funny you should ask that question. I actually have a Merieke Ri Berit deck that I cherish ( and a Sram, Senior Edificer ( deck as well. Neither are 100% tuned, but they're close.

Will they work on Duel Commander? Maybe. Probably not my Sram deck, but Merieke might.

I don't play that format, so I am also not the best person to ask.

I see, then what are your thoughts on Merieke Ri Berit , Tuvasa the Sunlit or really anything thats bad in multplayer like voltron, mill, copy, or steal decks. Do you think a deck built around one of those would be quite effective. And lets give it the pretense of a blind meta. Duel edh of course.
