I highly recommend Embalmer's Tools, Altar of Dementia, World Shaper, and Mesmeric Orb if you can afford it. There are a lot of weird, fun things you can do with Sidisi. Fixing to update my outdated Queen of the Undead: Sidisi deck. Keep up the good work.

UltraMeh on Meren deck (altered usercopy)

I have to admit that I just got the Intent and the Excavator. They are applicable for several fun decks, which pulled the trigger for me. I don't really have a budget, but I don't feel like spending more than $50 on a card nowadays. Especially since wizards seems to be printing all kind of staples lately. Because of Covid, I have only been goldfishing with this deck. Hopefully there will be actual playtesting anytime soon.

The suggestions of Stitcher's Supplier and World Shaper are just mindblowing. Also rather budgetfriendly.

I have seen a couple of nice additions on gatherer

Also, don't worry about commenting too much. It is amazing to get some guidance from you :-)

Thank you for the input!

I've wanted to find room for Elvish Reclaimer, yet I never could ablate a card. I enjoy Grapple with the Past, but I see reason for its exclusion.

I'll consider Squee, Goblin Nabob. It goes well with Survival of the Fittest, Faithless Looting, and Geier Reach Sanitarium, yet, save for those, it may be lacking for the rest of the deck.

Genesis is one I've loved in profuse, as with Vivien Reid, so I don't really wish to cut it.

As for Ajani Unyielding, farewell to it. The list already has World Shaper and I don't trow that it needs another effect like it.

Much obliged, and new changes loom.

Peacekeeper + Sun Titan my favorite white synergy :)

Grapple with the Past can go. Elvish Reclaimer seems worthy of a spot.

Squee, Goblin Nabob since this is not a reanimation list you need gas for Survival of the Fittest. Vivien Reid doesn't do enough for the strategy. Doesnt fit under Sun Titan.

Glory is awesome alongside Survival and brings versatile protection. Genesis used to be but with Eternal Witness and Sun Titan it now is lackluster.

Ajani Unyielding does nothing for this list. World Shaper and/or Splendid Reclamation

Gambit0528 on Big Mana Muldrotha *Update 1*

I have looked at some of those cards. Exploration would be ideal since it is a one Mana enchantment. But I often find that if I can get one good use out of Mirror-Mad Phantasm and World Shaper that will solve my mid game Mana issues.

Out of curiosity, were you aware that Squirrel Nest is an infinite combo with the already included Earthcraft? netting you infinite squirrels to sac for some reason, or turn sideways for fatal. It is one of my favorite win conditions and it is in my Meren deck. :p I apologize in advance for stealing World Shaper, not sure how I missed it, but that is some killer tech. Thanks!

Deyosyf - Thank you for commenting!

While I do think the Squandered Resources combo with World Shaper is pretty nifty, I personally don't see myself getting much value out of Squandered Resources without World Shaper already on the field. With various fetchlands and other lands that sac themselves, I typically don't have to worry about having plenty of lands to play out of the graveyard already. On top of that, I'm not a huge fan of World Shaper if the deck doesn't have any sac outlets, which mine doesn't currently have. In the right deck this is a powerful combo, but for mine I don't have enough free deckslots to fit all of the needed cards in.

Gravebreaker Lamia is a card I've considered since it is quite good, but the problem is that it's not repeatable. With Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Sidisi can exploit herself so you can play her every turn without a problem. Combined with Animate Dead this is a powerful and cheap tutor effect (without Animate Dead, I probably wouldn't be running her). For Gravebreaker, I don't see the discount effect to be good enough to warrant running the card.

I do think Walking Ballista could be included in the deck, it's certainly not a bad card. The main issue I have with it is that it's kind of boring, haha. But yeah, especially in the right meta, Walking Ballista is very good for cleaning up small creatures, while still being an effective combo finisher. In my current meta, there's not a lot of small enough creatures, so I've just decided not to run it.

I will replace Growth Spiral with Coiling Oracle, I'm not actually sure why I hadn't thought of Oracle since I already own the card. So thanks for bringing it to my attention. I will test out Risen Reef to see if it's worth the extra mana. I feel like it's probably worth it, but I'll try to verify that before adding it to the deck.

As for Secrets of the Dead, it's not quite as attractive as Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study since it requires Muldrotha on the field to do much of anything. But I do still think it's worth running all 3. One of the main goals of this deck is to replay removal/interaction over and over again with Muldrotha, and Secrets of the Dead synergizes with this game plan perfectly. It might not be a card for every deck, but for mine it definitely puts in work every time I play it.
