(cont.) Being able to sacrifice creatures at no cost is vital for setting up and running the combo. Any one of these works as a sac outlet, though some are a bit tricky to use correctly:

Betrothed of Fire
Goblin Bombardment
Spawning Pit
Altar of Dementia
Jinxed Idol
Jinxed Ring
Blasting Station
Fanatical Devotion
Grafted Wargear
Ashnod's Altar
Phyrexian Altar
Martyr's Cause
Tooth and Claw

Swarm and Slam


Choose one:

  • Create two 1/1 green Insect creature token.

  • Sacrifice a creature. If you do, destroy target artifact or creature.


The Swarm and Slam theme deck from Darksteel was the first deck I owned. Looking back, it was a GW aristocrats deck. I still do own that Spawning Pit.

Create a beaver.

Looking good! As you're already running Plagiecrafter and Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner and Revel in Riches would be perfect additions. Spawning Pit is another great sac-outlet. Pest Infestation is a match made in heaven with Savra. In that regard, Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip is very fitting, as well.

Suggestions from someone who started from a total junk Meren deck in 2015, and through the years made it to a cEDH (check the playlist here if you want: Meren Surgical Toolbox [2K22]:

More generally, have a look at to see what cards best fit a budget Meren deck. No offense, but even as a budget your deck certainly needs much improvement. That is, assuming you don't run cards for their flavor or because you just like them. Then that's totally up to you.

I've found a few cards that may interest you, based on your description. There are a number of enchantments in your colors that function as good sac outlets: Weaponize the Monsters, Barrage of Expendables, and Goblin Bombardment all sacrifice creatures for direct damage, while Fanatical Devotion and Martyr's Cause both provide some sort of protection. If you'd like to stay in green, Evolutionary Leap is about as close as you'll get to Greater Good. As far as other good sac outlets, High Market is an excellent way to crack your eggs, and Spawning Pit is a decent budget Altar effect (as Ashnod's Altar may be a bit expensive. As far as other suggestions, I can't recommend Skullclamp enough (if your budget allows). Changelings are also something to look out for, as they also count as Eggs for your commander. Notably, Maskwood Nexus and Birthing Boughs are both sources of eggs (and the Nexus combos VERY well with your commander) and Mirror Entity is another combo piece for you.

Hey Masterful QQ - You mentioned Ophiomancer can make 3+ tokens every round. That only works if you have a sac outlet or way to kill the Snake token before your turn ends correct? Otherwise, Ophiomancer's ability won't resolve when your opponent's turn starts (i.e. their upkeep).

I often find myself usually only making one Snake token, as it's not that common actually to have a sac outlet on the board in this deck - which is why I'm definitely keeping Spawning Pit in. However, a death touch token is awesome - and if it's killed I can just make another one on my opponent's next upkeep. Either way, great card!
