RA_HORAKHTE on MEREN: THE NATURE'S CYCLE OF LIFE AND DEATH

1 month ago

Hi DreadKhan!

Thanks for your suggestions, I truly find them very interesting!

About Yavimaya Granger , maybe I discarded him due to it's 3CMC and can't control when they die. But it's true that essentialy is similar to Dawntreader Elk or Diligent Farmhand . I think still prefer the Elk or the Farmhand for being more mana cheap to put onto the field (and so be recurred by Meren) and be able to control when they are sacrified. Many times Meren or another thing to take advantage of death triggers isn't in the field when I played an echo card.

Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire is very nice (and cool), specially in aggro decks, just I find that Fierce Empath works better in my personal build. Fierce empath allow me to access to my finisher creatures and at ETB for only 3 mana (Specially Protean Hulk , wich grants me insta win with combo, or just a removal card like Bane of Progress or Massacre wurm). Varragoth can grant me any card... but at a total of 5 cmc (3 play +2 boast), waiting 1 turn to attack (as in this deck I don't have many ways of giving haste) and waiting more to get that card from the top of the library... It's objectively more slower in this situation. In fact, I use Sidisi, Undead Vizier as a creature "direct tutor" (I saw you play her too, so I'm sure you have used her with success!). I know that argument would lead about including some kind of powerful tutor like demonic, etc... but they are a bit taboo in my playgroup (mostly due to economic reasons haha). Although Diabolic Intent could be accepted...

Don't get me wrong, Varragoth sure is awesome any deck, it's just more an aggro piece than a sacrifice/graveyard recursion one.

But I'll add to my ideas your Silverglade Pathfinder !! I'm also thinking on Evolutionary Leap , man I have that card since many years and I never used in Meren, but I love it.

Many thanks!

Absolumx on Muldrotha Control

Hello , i see that you are missing a lot of protection for Muldrotha and have a lot of ramp spell that will not be useful in your graveyard later on. Here some suggestions for you if you want to explore other avenue.

Protection: Command Beacon - It will ensure you can always cast muldrotha for cheap. Bojuka Bog - very important to interact with your opponent graveyards, if not needed cycle it and use it later if needed.

Lightning Greaves For me its a no brainer especially how much muldrotha cost to cast we need to help him..or her staying on the board.

Spore Frog is just amazing if you are in a playgroup that go to combat a lot your just dont care sac spore frog everytime and recast it on your next turn for a huge shield... if you playgroup dont use combat a lot leave it out.

Elephant Grass Is also very good to keep you safe while you are building up your board. Dont want to pay the cumulative upkeep, sac it and replay it again :)

Glen Elendra Archmage is also going to disturbed your opponent plans when its on the board and I pair her with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed so she always come back without me having to recast her, and Mikaeus is just awesome in this deck.

Im Testing and trying Lilting Refrain for counter spell which seemed a good deterrent like Glen Elendra and it can be reutilized.

Ramp You are using a lot of sorceries for this category, I was doing the same before and felt that these card had no value on the long run.

I now use a different approach on ramp. I use milling and I play cards like Ramunap Excavator , Dryad of the Ilysian Grove , Springbloom Druid (should replace cultivate), my favorite is World Shaper (instead of your splendid reclamation) and sac it for massive boost, same for The Mending of Dominaria it just feed your grave and have a massive outcome + they can be replayed later by your cmdr.

I would play 1 or 2 drop mana dorks over ramping sorceries for sure. The only sorcery I really suggest is Life from the Loam so good to feed your graveyard or get your land back if needed.

Self mill: Jace, Memory Adept will do better than Beleren , pair this with Syr Konrad, the Grim and other mill option ... let me know in your reply if you would like this avenue a have a few good cards that can help.

Tutor: You also want to replace your Beseech the Queen for Gravebreaker Lamia or Sidisi, Undead Vizier same thing it does the same and can be replayed over and over.

Card Draw: I would replace Lifecrafter's Bestiary for Secrets of the Dead which will make you draw like crazy when you cast back stuff from your grave.

Ohter: Fleshbag Marauder is a good effect, but you can have more versatile and mana efficient creatures which are also cheap: Demon's Disciple and Plaguecrafter both are an auto include when repeated over and over they are very nasty.

Hostage Taker is very very fun .

Steal Enchantment is a very good 2 mana value card which will make you live the dream of having a Smothering Tithe , Rhystic Study or any other broken enchantments.

I can go on an on on card that will benefit your deck , what I would say check to replace your instant and sorceries with permanents that will benefit you during the entire game.

Let me know what you think and what you will change I can then help you tweaking a few more things.

Warlockednloaded on 75% Yarok Edh

1 month ago

Hey, love the deck, here's some suggestions but take it with a grain of salt because everyones Yarok deck is different. :)

Cards to consider:

Woodland Bellower - get fierce empath and woodelves

Fierce Empath - get your big creatures to your hand

Thieving Skydiver - interaction on a creature! steal your opponents sol rings

Sidisi, Undead Vizier - tutor for anything, Keep in mind Sidisi can exploit himself too

Mulldrifter - evoke for cheap card draw.

Oubliette - With Yarok out, get rid of two opponents commanders on an enchantment ETB, and phasing out takes any artifacts and auras with it.

if you really want to lean on ETB triggers, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling is a good creature for flicker effects.

TheVectornaut on my attemp at a deck..

I agree with trying to capitalize on creatures a little more than noncreatures since you already have Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Liliana Vess caring about them to one degree or another. I think the best creatures to look into would be vampires since you already have a decent shell for them. Gatekeeper of Malakir or Feast of Blood could swap for Geth's Verdict , Gifted Aetherborn or Nighthawk Scavenger could supplement Vampire Nighthawk , Pulse Tracker or Vampire of the Dire Moon could replace Mardu Shadowspear , Blood Artist could replace Cutthroat, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose provides redundancy for Sanguine Bond , Pawn of Ulamog can provide sac fodder for cards like Ob Nix or Viscera Seer , Nullpriest of Oblivion is a flexible way to reanimate beefy monsters like Sangromancer , Vampire Nocturnus , Malakir Bloodwitch , Butcher of Malakir , or Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet . Finally, while not a vampire, I'd rather play Sidisi, Undead Vizier over Diabolic Tutor if you can't afford the OG 1-2 cost tutors. BTW, I'm not saying you should run all of these cards; just run what fits your playstyle.

Cool deck!!!
If you want to focus on etb then maybe you are right about trying yarok.
However abzan recursion can be a blast and you have a cool commander pair picked out.
I really like creatures that can be their own sac outlets so they can perpetualy generate value when you recur them, like with ramos or Phyrexian Reclamation .
Some of these creatures are Sakura-Tribe Elder , Caustic Caterpillar , Yavimaya Elder , Restoration Specialist , and Sidisi, Undead Vizier , for example.
Then your deck is less likely get hosed when your opponent plays Torpor Orb or Hushwing Gryff . Anyway, just something to think about.

TheVectornaut on Mono black sacrifice control deck

3 months ago

I hear that. I was lucky enough to pick up a Razaketh for my Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest deck for only about $5 before it spiked. Even his "cheaper alternative", Sidisi, Undead Vizier is expensive. As for the enchantments, I need copies in multiple decks and have been waiting for Wizards to meaningfully reprint one or both of them for years to no avail. If the effect does sound like something you'd enjoy, Butcher of Malakir can serve nearly the same role on a budget, assuming you can get him into play quickly enough.

Here's a list of some of my decks that involve reanimator and sacrifice, by the way. I really enjoy playing around the graveyard and end up building around these mechanics frequently. They're all casual decks, but they're mostly budget too so maybe they could be a useful reference. Anyway, good luck with your build!

Use Sidisi, Undead Vizier in the command zone to make sure you can easily find her

seshiro_of_the_orochi on When a commander is not …

If you want to go Jund, I feel like Korvold, Fae-Cursed King propably is the best choice for it. Traximundar seems fitting for the Grixis build, but you could also try playing mono-B with Sidisi, Undead Vizier . And in case you'd like a Grave Pact in the command zone, how about savra golgari queen?
