Have you ever considered cards like Body Double , Mind's Dilation , and Chancellor of the Spires ? They're a good way to use your opponents' cards against them. I'd highly recommend giving them a try!

Seems really solid. Good job. You probably already know about the popular Reveillark / Body Double infinite combo? I know you just win with this deck, but I saw Abyssal Gatekeeper in your SB and thought Butcher of Malakir would be a step up.

While Mikeaus and Ballista combo can work in other decks like Meren for example, it is quite slow in this build. To avoid using hardened scales, you can actually grab Body Double (becoming a clone of protean hulk) and Viscera Seer to make the combo work in a full hulk package. This adds ALOT of extra cards that arent very good on their own and dont synergise with my other piles, whereas Meren can get away with it as that deck is soley focused around sacrificing and reanimating. Mikeaeus himself also has a very high CMC of 6, meaning when you cast ad nauseam, it will draw you less cards as you take more damage. Body double is the same. Viscera seer is another card that has no use in the deck due to the lack of sacrifice synergies. I do in fact run Walking Ballista as mentioned in the primer for the Bomberman Combo. All the Hulk piles i run try to produce an infinite amount of WUBRG mana which synergises with my commander. Mikeaus is a win more card as if flash hulk resolves we can win in much more efficient ways.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask here, or join the linked Discord server and message me there. Thanks

SamuraiNinjaSpy on [Primer] Shuffle Hulk

I run Flash Hulk in my Muldrotha deck, but the combo involves fetching a sac outlet plus Body Double , then copying Hulk, Sacrificing it, then getting Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Walking Ballista to pull off the combo. It’s much easier to shut down, but it can be shortcutted.

Now that I’ve seen this list, I’m considering the possibility of adding Extirpate as a means to shut down specifically this combo, but also targeted reanimate effects. Is it even worth considering any possible ways to stop Extirpate ? There’s also Sudden Shock to consider, but I don’t think either sees as much play as it should (I understand they aren’t the most effective ways to stop a lot of cards, but they are among the few cards that can stop self protecting loops like this one).

Body Double is a copy of another creature, cmc included. You’d need a different 5 drop to get to bellower. Maybe Chakram Retriever ? Other than that, great deck. Looks like a blast.

Il tuo piano di gioco è usare tanto ramp per tirare Muldrotha sul campo, dopodiché, cercare di tenerlo sul campo per il resto della partita.

Per il ramp ti consiglio:

Per la proteggere Muldrotha, ti consiglierei queste:

Un altra strategia per assicurarti di non dover pagare la Commander Tax per rigiocare Muldrotha è di rigiocarla dal cimitero. Meglio ancora se quelle carte possono a loro volta essere rigiocate dal cimitero con Muldrotha:

Ti consiglio di stare più in curva e di tagliare Slum Reaper , visto che ci sono opzioni che costano meno mana e fanno la stessa cosa: Fleshbag Marauder , Merciless Executioner e Plaguecrafter .

Carte che ti permettono di riprendere altre carte dal cimitero in mano:

  • Eternal Witness , Skullwinder e Nyx Weaver ti permettono di riprenderti carte utili, in modo da poter sforare il limite di un solo permanente per tipo dal cimitero. Inoltre, così puoi riprendere anche Instant e Sorcery, a cui normalmente non avresti più accesso una volta usate.

Ti suggerisco una combo interessante, il Flash Hulk . Consiste nel poter giocare e subito sacrificare il Protean Hulk già dal turno due per poi poterti andare a cercare creature nel mazzo che ti permettano di fare una combo infinita e vincere. Se cerchi online dovresti trovare fonti a sufficienza. Comunque, anche solo il Protean Hulk da solo è una grande inclusione.

Inoltre, una carta davvero buffa da poter giocare nella tua combinazione di colori: Villainous Wealth .

Un'altra carta per salvarti il cimitero da effetti come Bojuka Bog : Perpetual Timepiece .

Tra le terre che sono fortissime nel tuo mazzo ci sono anche: - Cabal Coffers insieme a Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . - Alchemist's Refuge e Emergence Zone per poter giocare creature e altre cose ad instant speed. - Wasteland è una seconda Strip Mine . - Lotus Vale e Lotus Field sono più o meno ramp, ma anche un buon modo per fare molto mana se avessi il modo di stapparle. Magari con Deserted Temple , a cui sta anche simpatica Cabal Coffers , comunque. - Glacial Chasm è un piano di riserva che ti costa solo 2 punti vita a turno, a patto di rigiocarla sempre dal cimitero tutti i turni.

Tra le carte che ti suggerisco di togliere ci sono:

Great question!

This deck is built around being as flexible as possible, so any individual piece can be drawn and it doesn't affect the game plan much, if at all. In this instance, you can substitute Guide for Body Double and combo pretty much the same way as you normally would. The only piece when drawn that shuts off a combo is the Zulaport Cutthroat as I haven't found room for a redundant piece, but just casting it as a regular dude is fine and fairly unobtrusive; if it gets wiped or removed, it's in your graveyard to bring back with a Reveillark trigger during your combo.
