Quote from 13055 »Hey, all. Currently wondering what deck I should build next. I've been piloting Merfolk for a while now, and while it's fun, I love playing with different kinds of decks. Specifically, storm/something similar to the Standard UR-control looks appealing, but I could also see WB tokens or something midrange-y being fun. Basically, anything not necessarily linear. Something that handles the general meta well would be a plus (my LGS doesn't have a whole lot of defining features, there's a Tron player, a Faeries player, and other than that it's a grab bag; I've seen Living End, Knightfall, some Abzan CoCo, an Affinity player who's started playing Tezzerator, and a few Burn decks).
My biggest weakness right now is sideboarding (which is amplified because of the random mix of decks I face each week), but I'm not sure if I should be increasing my dependence on sideboard-planning to teach myself or just look for a deck with good all-around performance.
Budget isn't a concern, and this is less of a necessity but I think I'd enjoy something with JVPs in it (always enjoyed how the card played from afar).

Quote from Polymorph »Hey fellows,
so i got most of the BG Manabase complete and want to run a Unburial Rites Deck with it.
I came up with Craterhoof Behemoth Dredge, but unfortunately it's pretty fragile and easy to hate out with a lot of disruption running around.
I try to abuse Llanowar Mentor and Greenseeker to discard for Value
Unburial Rites Lingering Souls Life from the Loam Faithless Looting and more stuff commonly seen around Dredge and Vengevine Builds.
But none of my ideas has come close to a decklist.
The main problem is the aim of the deck:
Do i want to outvalue, outaggro or outgrind my opponent?
So hope you get a clue and lead me towards the right idea for designing this deck.
Quote from LeviatanCL »Quote from Polymorph »...
The thing is that at the end, you want a graveyard focused deck, so lets look at other deck depending at graveyard.
Living End: Probably the best "combo" graveyard deck.
Vengevine: the best aggro deck?
I think is hard for you to beat those deck in combo/aggro aspect, so i would probably go for the value/grind/card advantage option, and in this aspect, life from the loam is the best engine, and even then you still have to "fight" with gifts decks and aggroloam (levy style).

Quote from SomeDuck007 »Hey, I'm slowly getting into modern but the price tag is so ludicrously high that I can't seem to find a deck that both works and has a low price point. I play legacy dredge and I love the idea of kind of bending how you would traditionally play, something that let's me take a very long turn and can pull of some explosive plays with hard decision making! Thanks in advance.

Taking Turns or some kind of Eggs deck might be the deck for you.
