DreadKhan on ooo baby its MEREN

I find Sakura-Tribe Elder is a very good card in Meren. I run 5 cards that serve a similar purpose presently, and I am rarely unhappy to draw them (though I run a lot less lands). If I can get a card like Elder out early, I can end up with a ton of mana while adding to Meren's XP count. Blood Pet is another interesting option.

Here are a few other cards I think might work. If you like to win with attacking, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest is a nice option, those counters can add up quickly. Ohran Frostfang is another great attacking option, probably better in Meren than Toski, Bearer of Secrets, who might also be a fun alternative to Beast Whisperer. There are also Grim Haruspex and Midnight Reaper, these can be better than Phyrexian Arena in my experience. I also use Liliana's Standard Bearer, which can draw a mittfull of cards, including after you are boardwiped. Rise of the Dread Marn can help vs board wipes as well. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder can make a fair number of tokens, and if you can keep sacrificing them he won't die (and becomes a very solid token generator). Foundation Breaker is a pretty handy removal effect stapled to a body, it's Evoke cast is also cheap XP (and a body in the yard). Sidisi, Undead Vizier is almost too good in Meren in my experience, but I feel I should mention her.

Cool deck, lots of interesting choices in here! I think you have 2 Willow Geist atm.

seshiro_of_the_orochi , I really like these suggestions. I’m going to apply them. I really like the idea of the Rise of the Dread Marn coming out of nowhere, and Raise the Draugr also helps with my humans, Grim Haruspex and Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia. I’ll try to find a place for the Smothering Abomination since that has worked well in past decks. Thank you for the suggestions!

I'm very sure this is far too slow for modern, but I really like this as a casual deck. Seems very well built.

If this were my deck, I'd change some things:

Grim Haruspex is better than Morbid Opportunist. A third Yahenni seems important to actually draw enough of your finishers. If they are too expensive or you'd like another good creature that can draw cards in addition to dealing damage, Smothering Abomination mught be worth a look. Maybe include it instead of three of your sixteen sac fodder creatures. That number definitely seems too high.

Finally, two copies of Mob Rule in addition to three copies of both Claim the Firstborn and Bloody Betrayal. Seems overkill. You'd even sometimes have spare copies of the six Threaten effects, and against creature-light or creatureless decks, there are up to eight dead cards in your deck. Maybe consider some copies of Rise of the Dread Marn to give you additional fodder on a big turn? Also, Raise the Draugr could actually be quite useful. At worst, it just recurrs one creature, but it can also recurr both Yahenni and Immersturm predator for a mere mana.

Sorry, some of the cards won't be so budget. But they could help you a lot I think.

Gisa, Glorious Resurrector, Chainer, Dementia Master and Grave Betrayal for mass reanimation.

Army of the Damned, Rise of the Dread Marn, Exsanguinate and Torment of Hailfire are good wincons.

Hellish Rebuke can really hurt the token or aggro deck

Nighthowler can make your commander lethal.

Malakir Rebirth  Flip is just great protection and can be a land if you need it.

I see your deck is budget, and I wanted to suggest some budget inclusions for cards that would create tokens that also trigger Ayara's drain ability.

Chittering Witch creates RAT tokens!!

Abhorrent Overlord Generates a LOT of harpy tokens as your devotion to black will be large with Ayara in play.

Rise of the Dread Marn is a great way to refuel your board with black creatures after a board wipe or large death effect.

Lab Rats is a great way to slowly add more rats to the field with enough mana for the buyback price.

Josu Vess, Lich Knight can be brutal with Ayara on the battlefield if the kicker cost is paid.

Necrotic Hex can be a good board clearing effect that also makes black creatures.

Your deck could also use some cards to help find your enjoyed rat cards. Some budget options in black include Diabolic Tutor , Mausoleum Secrets , and Ratcatcher !

Some cards you're using aren't especially great in a singleton format. Cards like Compound Fracture and Hunt for Specimens could be replaced with Defile and Callous Bloodmage respectively.

Have fun playing EDH! The best suggestion is to play with others and learn what cards you like and dislike using and adapt with new cards that fit your budget.

Oh and perhaps Rise of the Dread Marn can swarm the field with zombies even more

Reliquarian Thanks for the suggestions! I think there is definitely a place for most of those cards in this deck. Especially Rise of the Dread Marn and Narfi, Betrayer King . I think I will try to find a place for Ashnod's Altar and Night's Whisper as well. Chromatic Lantern was added after a few of us started running Blood Moon so I think I'll keep it in there for now but I might swap Coalition Relic in for one of the other rocks that come in tapped.

Looks good! +1 upvote from me.

You could consider adding some of the new Kaldheim cards. There is a good amount of zombie tribal support in that set (like Rise of the Dread Marn & Narfi, Betrayer King for example).

Other card suggestions are Living Death , which could combo with your Scarab God (You can exile any good creatures in your opponent's graveyards and then Living Death to get all the good stuff on your board). Another good option could be Ashnod's Altar to use with all of the tokens you're making. Skirge Familiar can also get some of your reanimation targets like Jin and Sheoldred into your graveyard for the Scarab God to make tokens of. As for your mana rock package, I would consider adding in Coalition Relic since it is a great little mana rock that will do a lot more for you than some of the rocks you already have at 3 cmc like Chromatic Lantern . Finally I would consider adding Night's Whisper to go with your Sign in Blood . You could either replace the Sign in Blood with it or just run both depending.

Hopefully those suggestions are helpful. Happy brewing!
