-1 Dispel

+1 Condescend

I value the Scry 2, and counter all ability over the limitation to just instants, as I don't know what the meta will be like yet.

-3 Evolving Wilds

+2 Ash Barrens

+1 Terramorphic Expanse

Ash Barrens interacts better with Foil as it allows me to fetch an island to my hand.

-2 Vapor Snag

+2 Echoing Truth

As I'm not sure what my meta will be like, Echoing Truth can act as catch all solution.

-1 Flame Slash

+1 Thermo-Alchemist

To increase my reach a bit.

Idk what i can and cannot suggeat as budget wasnt stated so ill just throw out ideas :)

A delerium favourite i have is Mishra's Bauble . It plays itself for free, gives a littlebit of info then replaces itself as early as turn 1.

Sorceries? Green Sun's Zenith is absolute bonkers in mono green decks, if the budget is up for it its great to havea 1 of Dryad Arbor .

Between barrens and wilds i say 100% play Ash Barrens .. why? When your low on lands barrens enters untapped while Evolving Wilds does not. The main reason wilds is played is because of landfall shenanigans or shuffle effects.

I think you could use a Overrun effect to end out games but i dont know any personally of theme XD

Protection? I think Constant Mists is legacy legal? XD

I love the brew, i wish you the best of luck! +1!

Good points, though I don't own Gush, and to pricey for Pauper, but I do like the Foil and Lands Suggestions. So here are the changes I'm making

-2 Mana Leak

+2 Foil


-1 Ash Barrens

-4 Swiftwater Cliffs

+3 Island

+2 Mountain

I'll pick up 1 Gush on friday, and will play it instead of Mana Leak

Hey, sometimes it's not good to have so many ideas because then you feel you have to put them all into one deck, which is not necessary :)

Budget cards ($1 or less each) to consider adding:

Budget cards ($4 or less each) to consider:

Opponent mill is not worth it in multiplayer Commander; it's too slow, not reliable enough unless infinite combo with Altar of the Brood or Altar of Dementia . Self-mill however is good especially with dredge. Consider Grave-Troll and Thug? These along with Stinkweed who you're already playing give a lot of budget repeatable self-mill. Buried is a powerful budget spell especially with these dredge creatures since you can tutor for and put all three into your graveyard with one card.

If you're willing to add a few other cards that are over $1 then consider adding Eternal Witness , Fauna Shaman and Protean Hulk ? These three are powerful and do different effects that are good with Muldrotha. Witness can recur any card from your graveyard. Fauna is a repeatable creature tutor while also an enabler to get creatures such as dredge creatures into your graveyard. Hulk has budget combo potential.

Consider Flash + Protean Hulk + Phyrexian Delver + Carrion Feeder or Viscera Seer + Body Double ? It's a budget combo to tutor for creatures by sacing Hulk and repeatable with Muldrotha.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Golgari Guildgate
  • Thornwood Falls
  • Jwar Isle Refuge
  • Ambush Viper
  • Fleet Swallower
  • Scribe of the Mindful
  • Dreamborn Muse
  • Manic Scribe
  • Chronic Flooding
  • Mirror-Mad Phantasm
  • Necrotic Ooze
  • Werebear
  • Carapace
  • Mind Grind
  • Tolarian Winds
  • Villainous Wealth
  • Bloodchief Ascension
  • Mindcrank

Hey there! Your deck needs a bit of work, it looks like it's running a lot that has fallen out of favor lately. It needs streamlining, and some better cantrips too. First off, Ponder , Preordain , Gitaxian Probe and Brainstorm should replace Portent , Opt , Peek , Thought Scour , and Mental Note . It'll give you much better filtering and allow you to dig for answers more efficiently. Second, if you're running mainboard fliers Stormbound Geist is much more resilient than Sultai Scavenger , and easier to get out too. Warped Landscape isn't amazing in this format.. 18 Lands is correct, but it's best to run more fetches to pump out Anglers quicker (3 Terramorphic Expanse , 3 Evolving Wilds , 1 Ash Barrens and a 9/2 Split for basics, Islands being the 9). Gush makes your late-game so much more powerful, and the synergy with Foil is comparable to Force of Will , so you'll want 3 of each. Snuff Out is also important for your removal suite, which should also include a copy of Chainer's Edict and 2 Echoing Decay s. One or two extra Augur of Bolas never hurt anyone. Finally, you might also want to run Curse of Chains and Dispel .

If you need a resource to check what U/B Delver is running atm, you should look at MTGGoldfish's Pauper Meta review, it'll show you the top-tier lists and give you an idea what you should run.
