Riftsweeper

Creature — Elf Shaman

When Riftsweeper enters the battlefield, choose target face-up card that's removed from the game. Its owner shuffles it into his or her library.

Just realized that Riftsweeper+Dread Return also act as a sac outlet for the combos that don't involve Bag of Holding. Ended up switching Wonder for Skemfar Shadowsage.

You're welcome.

Cuts seem somewhat hard, as your list is pretty well put together. I found three cards that you could cut to make some room:

Riftsweeper doesn't seem too important. Ist this a meta call?

Masked Admirers is a fine card, but most of the time not worth it. Grave decks usually already have lots of value, so you'll propably not need this.

Glissa, the Traitor is powerful, but you only have 10 artifacts. If any of those get milled, Glissa is great, but Eternal Witness could do the job as well.

With three slots open, I'd add Revel in Riches, Spawning Pit and Pest Infestation. Valentin and Executioner actually seem worse than most of what you're doing here.

Promotion

Enchantment - Aura

Enchant legendary creature or planeswalker

Sacrifice enchanted permanent, exile Promotion: Put the creature or planeswalker card that Promotion was attached to into the command zone. That card is your commander and has partner. Other commanders you own have partner. (This effect doesn't end at end of turn.)


I'm pretty sure that wording covers most weird corner cases: no animated enchantments or artifacts, you don't lose your original commander, everything goes where it's supposed to. Not sure what happens if you grab it with Pull from Eternity or Riftsweeper..

Create a spell that can only be cast if you control two commanders.

Not an update yet but I just wanted to mention one new card that will probably go into the deck: Riftsweeper

If you have a deck that is based on one card, specifically an artifact creature that dies to legitimately every piece of removal you have to be really careful. The worst thing that could happen right now is that Academy Manufactor gets exiled and then you're pretty much done. So to counter this, I'm going to do 2 things:

  1. Add in Riftsweeper which is one of the very few ways to get back cards from exile, and fortunately enough we're in green so it works. Not great, but them's the breaks for a one card focused deck.
  2. Add in more clue/food/treasure generators. Even if we're in a tough pinch, we can always fall back on the Rise and Shine win-cons. This will also help more with the other payoff cards. Right now the only other real option is Tireless Provisioner + Things that put in lands or Deadeye Navigator + Lonis, Cryptozoologist

I'll chew on it for a little bit but any suggestions for this would be great

jamochawoke on Path to Exile or Swords …

In a vacuum it's Swords to Plowshares. Getting rid of someone's cheap commander or utility combo piece creature is worth the extra 1-5 life you'll have to chunk through to win (if you're even using life as a wincon to begin with).

It's not always best though.

I run Path to Exile more often because I love having the option to ramp myself if I absolutely need to in mono-white or having the option to color fix when splashing. It's especially good if you're using cards in your deck like Pull from Eternity, Riftsweeper, Eternal Scourge, Mirror of Fate, or Misthollow Griffin. It can also be more oppressive than Swords if you're doing evil things like Winter Orb abuse.

The current "pull from exile" cards are Pull from Eternity and Riftsweeper, and I honestly think that's more than enough. If a card wanted to interact with exile, I think counting exiled cards or looking for a certain characteristic would be better. "If an opponent owns an exiled creature, ~ gets +1/+2" or something.

The exile zone is (supposed to be) the Does Not Exist area, so it's probably got to have some specific flavor, like a reality guard or something. It's kind of hard to interact with something that's not there. Maybe a memorial? But that seems more graveyard-y.

@tonylomas, Use Riftsweeper or Mirror of Fate to get it back.

I dont know if you have a lot of exile effects happening, but what about Riftsweeper. If a key card is rmoved from play and you need it back, or even wiped in a graveyard hate move, gives you the chance of getting it back.

I have no Meren deck myself, but am considering it my next build. Consider your deck inspirational lol
