Meren of Clan Nel Toth my favorite commander. There is tons of value to be had here in a deck that is just a blast to pilot. I am constantly working to upgrade and tune this deck.

The primary goal of the deck is to find Buried Alive, pitching Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion and then whatever utility creature you need at the time. Get Meren out asap, then just your stereotypical sac for value strat until you can get 6 counters on her. Target Mikaeus first as that will net you more value for the turn before you go infinite. The next turn target Triskelion with her ability, maintain priority, and start pinging people for one by removing the counters from Triskelion. If you're unfamiliar with the combo, since Triskelion technically dies with no +1/+1 counters on it each time, Mikaeus triggers bringing it back with Undying and each time you can use the 4 counters on Triskelion to ping a target for 4 damage, doing this infinite times in the same sequence because everytime Triskelion dies it immediately comes back. I can also mill my opponents out moderately quickly by utilizing Altar of Dementia and either Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord or Nighthowler.

The deck is broken down based on cards primary functions in my particular build. It is important to note that many of these cards serve additional purposes as well. Vraska, Golgari Queen has an alternative win conditions in the form of her ultimate. Altar of Dementia serves perfectly as both a mill and sacrifice outlet. Many of my utility spells like tutors, answers, and even ramp function as self-sacrifice or a single use sacrifice outlet.

Please feel free to comment any questions or concerns with the deck. My goal is to maintain approximately a 7 in power on a scale of 1-10. 1 being Jank and 10 being highly tuned cEDH decks. I am very happy to say I think i have accomplished that here.

This deck is probably my favorite one i own out of 11. I just make a pretty big chnage to the mana curve, and dropped a win-condition in favor of additional value in ramp and additional sac outlets. Hopefully my changes will make the deck more fun to pilot, and a little faster. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Drop a +1 on your way out if you like the deck please. Thanks!

So I have spent a good deal of time away from MtG due to the loss of my playgroup. Honestly I am not sure i could play this deck efficiently without a consididerable amount of tinkering for whatever future meta i find myself in. Any advice on newer cards release within the past year and a half or so that fit in well here would be very appreciated. Thank y'all in advance for your help and advice.
