Razaketh, the Foulblooded Discussion
1 day ago
I love the theme!
Razaketh, the Foulblooded probably has too high a converted mana cost (CMC) for modern, if you want to keep it, i would make it a 1of.
You will also need a way to draw cards, looks like you will run out of steam. Because you have high CMC Dark Confidant i think maybe too painful to you and Phyrexian Arena does not really fit the theme, so perhaps Dark Prophecy is more on theme. alternately try Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper and Read the Bones.
Your sideboard should be how to deal with other decks, for example graveyard decks, storm decks, combo decks etc. Where do you plan to play this deck and what do people normally play? The answers to those questions will tell you what cards should be in your sideboard.
This is all I can think of at the moment, great theme idea!

I think your Mesmeric Orb idea is interesting. I've recently put in Hermit Druid after much deliberation, and now I know why it has been recommended so much. Sometimes, it just helps to have twenty cards in the graveyard. I should have an open slot in the deck available for some more of that.
I actually had Necrotic Ooze in the list for some time, and this was when I also had Razaketh, the Foulblooded. I think I ended up taking them both out of my list because I never actually got them in paper, but it's definitely solid. I agree on your sentiment with Triskelion and Phyrexian Devourer. Any deck could use those cards. Also, I'm not sure I want to dedicate another two slots to cards that are only useful 5-percent of the time. In fact, because of that exact reason, I think I'll move Desecrated Tomb to my Maybeboard. It can have its uses, but 90-percent of time, it's a dead card.
Genesis doesn't seem like a bad card. I think I had it in my first iteration of this deck. It's just since then, Hogaak has slowly become reserved as my combo deck for my collection. I've ended up taking out cards that were a bit slower than others, and those included Genesis. But if you want to put it in to your list, please be my guest. Again, it's a good card, just a little slow.
Thank you for taking the time to comment and share your ideas! Believe it or not, it helps me build my Hogaak deck. As for me, it's always been my pleasure to share my ideas, and to spread the Hogaak energy.

Nice meren deck. This is mine that I have been using since meren has came out as a card. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/graveyard-queen-meren-of-clan-nel-toth/ If you have any questions on why I use or dont use a card let me know, I am always happy to help other meren players out.
Having a Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip and Reanimate is nice for backup reanimation cards. Meren does typically get targeted so you want your 99 to be really tight and well. Then Meren is just the nice gravy engine that takes the deck from 100% to 1000%. So having similar effects of Meren is nice.
Sac outlets are very important for meren cause you want your exp counters to be as high as possible. It also synergizes well with merens ability. Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar are nice ones to use cause they can generate mana. Carrion Feeder is a good one drop sac outlet that can sac itself. Protip: you mainly want creatures that can sac themselves and others vs just others. The exception to the rule is creatures with really strong abilities like Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Diabolic Intent is very nice because it is a tutor and a sac ability combined together.
Because meren ability revolves around bringing the dead back to life, you want creatures that can either kill themselves, have strong etb triggers, or like to die so you abuse meren ability and get a lot of value. Plaguecrafter, Fleshbag Marauder, and Merciless Executioner are some creatures that a really solid etb trigger. I recommend at least running Plaguecrafter. Terastodon has a very nice etb trigger, it also synergizes well with natural order. Getting a turn 3 or turn 4 terastodon and targeting 3 lands is a nice way to get somebody to scoop. Mindslicer is a wonderful creature in meren decks, you sac it get an exp counter, make everybody top deck, and you fill up your graveyard. Everybody is suffering except you.
You are playing black and green so you have access to some really strong tutors. Pattern of Rebirth is a really good one because it just grabs any creature. Woodland Bellower is nice because it puts the tutor creature onto the battlefield, Fierce Empath is a nice tutor to grab any of your big creatures. Whats nice is both these cards synergize with each other so you can cast woodland bellower, tutor fierce empath and then grab another big creature Or do the inverse and you can do fierce empath to grab woodland so then woodland can get you a useful small creature. What is also nice is both of these are creature cards so you can abuse them with meren ability and keep tutoring cards each turn.
Some straight upgrades. Instead of Wall of Roots use Devoted Druid. Same mana cost but you can use devoted druid ability more then once per turn, plus when it dies you get an exp counter. Instead of Nyx Weaver use Altar of Dementia, same mana cost but easier to cast cause colorless, its a sac outlet so it synergizes with the deck better. It also has a higher roof which means you can mill yourself much more then 2 per turn. Also its ability if flexible and you have the option to mill other people but that isnt as strong as just milling yourself. Instead of Glowspore Shaman try Entomb or Buried Alive, it allows you to search your deck and pick what card you want to put in your graveyard. What is also nice is entomb is at instant speed.
I hope this helps a lot.

Braingamer: Thanks for those suggestions! Thassa, Deep-Dwelling is pretty sweet, and I really need to get my hands on one. I do agree that Sheoldred, Whispering One and Myr Battlesphere are not needed in the deck (Sheoldred is really only in there for extra graveyard recursion; the Battlesphere, when bounced, produces a crap ton of tokens and decent direct damage); however, I must respectfully disagree with cutting Razaketh, the Foulblooded. While his cmc is high, I have a few ways to cheat him into play, plus my ramp seems to be mostly consistent enough to allow me to hard cast him if need be, and he has almost single-handedly won me multiple games by allowing me to dig for whatever answer I need when I need it, while also giving me graveyard fodder to recur for more etb triggers. He's also an 8/8 flying beater with trample, which is a nice added touch for offence or defense. I may be completely wrong, but I really -really- enjoy Razaketh in this deck.
wozislightning: Awesome suggestions as well. I would -REALLY- like to get my hands on a Cloudstone Curio for this deck, but it's out of my price range, at the moment. Your ideas are definitely more affordable, and will require more investigating. Thanks much!

Thassa, Deep-Dwelling is really good. I would cut Razaketh, the Foulblooded for it because he's just so expensive. Also maybe cut your really expensive cards like Myr Battlesphere and Sheoldred, Whispering One for cards like Ice-Fang Coatl and Wall of Blossoms

Thrill of Possibility is quite good, very modular and draw, works great with Worldgorger Dragon , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Karmic Guide even a Razaketh, the Foulblooded is a great recursion target and wins the game. It's on my maybe, still evaluating what comes out for it. Hoping to get a really good evaluation of Dockside Extortionist today.
I need to get Abeyance in for sure to stop Thassa's Oracle - Protean Hulk , doesn't stop Thassa's Oracle - Demonic Consultation though sadly, so not sure. Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast should probably go in to move toward cEDH.
I'm trying to decide if I should abandon a damage line (currently combo/synergy/combat damage), since I almost exclusively win with Buried Alive + Reanimate right now, and solid secondary in Leonin Relic-Warder line and tertiary with Worldgorger Dragon and strong synergies in Razaketh, the Foulblooded (pulls the Leonin Relic-Warder combo) and Master of Cruelties .
Some cards I'm considering cutting for Abeyance (at least) and Thrill of Possibility , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Balefire Dragon , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , Mother of Runes which would make Diabolic Intent and Mausoleum Secrets worse and maybe unplayable, Steelshaper's Gift although a haste/shroud Kaalia of the Vast into a Razaketh, the Foulblooded into a win is very good, Talisman of Conviction but feel pretty low in mana sources as-is, plus Mox Diamond isn't in my printed deck (saving up store credit at Card Kingdom), Yawgmoth's Will . I did put Aven Mindcensor in for Serra Ascendant , changes the type of pressure I can put on early. May decide to take him out, usually my strategy is put in more tutors/go for win and try and win first but the Fish is just too fast and too low CMC and too hard to disrupt. Not going as far as Burnout
Hushbringer shuts down so much of my deck (and combos), it's tough to get around, then I'll have to find removal for my own creature, but maybe Diabolic Intent it for Buried Alive and then Mausoleum Secrets for Reanimate off her, but the mana cost is too much.
Lot's to think about, likely needed Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast in too, but until Jan 24th (think that's when it becomes legal to play), not in a rush. In reality all the top commanders are anyway and piggyback on similar combos.
