Nice list, should be fun for casual play. I'd look at mechanics like morbid Tragic Slip , Scavenge Slitherhead , unearth Extractor Demon , and 'classic' sacrifice effect creatures like Spore Frog or Bottle Gnomes / Brindle Boar . Stag is currently your only way to deal with flying creatures, so something like Aerie Ouphes would likely help.

Past that, relax and build something to be fun with your playgroup. Good casual games aren't about consistancy (uneless its consistant fun), they are about creating fun memories and flashing in Gluttonous Slime in response to living end.

Plaguecrafter is straight up better the Fleshbag Marauder

Spore Frog is in most Meren decks, so hard not to suggest it

Riftsweeper is a card i would suggest heavily as it can help with a weakness of the strategy. saved me in a recent game so i might be biased.

with urborg out you can get a lot of value from a Cabal Stronghold

You might need more card advantage/draw. You have a good amount of search, but it is hard to rely only on Greater Good and Zendikar Resurgent for great card advantage. Probably only get to use those when you are already in a good position in a match.

Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Lifecrafter's Bestiary Return of the Wildspeaker Even Elvish Visionary could do very well on mimic vat for temporary repeatable card draw.

If you include Archangel of Thune then think about Spike Feeder as well. Might as well go infinite.

For dech tech, I would suggest: Spore Frog Seht's Tiger Voice of Resurgence Noble Purpose Skullwinder Caustic Caterpillar Thrashing Brontodon Emergence Zone Thunderfoot Baloth Dosan the Falling Leaf

Nice deck, you should consider adding Spore Frog is always nice to have to prevent combat damage also it's a sacrifice creature. As well as Butcher of Malakir , which will let you combo with sacrifices and with your commander out that means big creatures for you.

It's not bad out of the box. Personally, I enjoy Spore Frog a lot with this commander.

Hey Pikobyte,

If you don´t mind me asking, if you would put Spike Weaver in, what would you take out? I use Spore Frog and Glacial Chasm a lot, and they always save me, but maybe Spike Weaver would be better in those spots.

As always, thanks for the help.

I love this deck. PDH games go long and your deck help stall out the board and wins through those stalls using your commander. It's a solid strategy.

You want to maximize your creature count as much as possible to take advantage of your commander. There are a few effects in your instants, sorceries and enchantments that could be replaced with creatures.

Crypt Creeper has a solid body and is basically like Scarab Feast. You could also try Faerie Macabre if you want to go for the free graveyard hate. No one expects that.

Diligent Farmhand makes sense in this build, even as a worse Sakura Tribe Elder.

I'm a big fan of Elvish Skysweeper in slow decks like this. The effect is expensive, but it can lock a player out of the game.

Because most of your creatures have a lot of toughness, this makes damage-based sweepers very strong. I would play the full gambit of Crypt Rats , Pestilence , Evincar's Justice and Gangrenous Zombies . Two of them are creatures, so that's a nice bonus.

Heart Warden is ramp that also turns into card draw later, like a Mind Stone.

Slum Reaper is great removal and puts a creature in your graveyard.

You could probably get some good value out of Mortician Beetle and Silumgar Scavenger .

Spore Frog is a good political tool that can encourage opponents to attack elsewhere. I could see it over Terrifying Presence, even if you lose on spider flavour.

Vulturous Aven is very similar to some of your card draw, but is has a body.

I think you should play Watcher in the Web and Oran-Rief Recluse in the maindeck. Watcher often feels like a fog while Recluse is great removal that usually has a target in multiplayer.

In terms of cuts, I don't understand Wildsize. You can also easily cut Spider Climb. Most of your creatures have reach already and +0/+3 is not great, even for 1 mana. Arachnus Web is also pretty weak removal. Rancor is a good card, but is it really useful for your game plan? How often will you win by attacking with your spiders? Naturalize feels a bit vanilla and could be replaced with another creature that gives you a similar effect. You also have quite a few cantripping creatures that I don't quite get the purpose of. Are they chump blockers? You have quite a bit of card advantage in black already. Wander in Death could be Death Denied or Reaping the Graves instead.

Ok. I would recommend Meren of Clan Nel Toth as a beginner commander. It also has a fairly high ceiling for casual.

Meren introduces you to the idea that your resources are expendable, and reusable. There are many ways to make the most of her but even something simple like Spore Frog can be super annoying in a casual environment. Then there’s always cards like Grave Pact and Butcher of Malakir to make opponents lives less fun.

Now, if you’re wanting to go more competitive The Gitrog Monster combo is a common GB way to do things.
