So 1) I have to give props to a good ol' queen reference. 2) your deck is markedly more tier than mine so I won't drop the list, there are a few cards in it you could use. Viridian Emissary is great ramp, Primal Druid isn't bad. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is freaking amazing. Treasure Keeper is, at very least, worth considering. Merciless Executioner is pretty goo. Body Snatcher would support the reanimation subtheme. Solemn Simulacrum is legendary, and Noxious Gearhulk is great late-game removals. Gotta come back from those Dark Confidant uses somehow. Thragtusk is pretty gold and Wurmcoil Engine is also quite fantastic. Fauna Shaman is a necessity and Strionic Resonator is pretty great.

@Force_of_Willb - Ancestral Knowledge will shuffle the library when it leaves so you need to pay the upkeep for a turn or two at least. it's also a bit pricey.

Deadbridge Chant is one of my favorite cards and I had it in here when I first built the deck but it never stuck around for more than the turn I cast it. I might find a spot for it but at the moment I don't think there are any cards in here that are less useful.

Dreamborn Muse is great and I put in Forgotten Creation which is similar but I ended up taking it out because in my playgroup if the card doesn't do something the turn it is cast or has an ability that can be activated at instant speed then it is very likely it will get removed before you get any use from it. Also muse can potentially help my opponents or make them hate me and target me more than usual.

I really appreciate you input on what to remove since that is always the hardest thing to decide when I get great suggestions.

Nyx Weaver is a card that is on the fence. I have him in currently because he is basically a draw 2 additional cards each turn but the main reason is that I can count him as an enchantment or creature for Muldrotha's ability.

Body Snatcher is part of the Hulk chain so he has to stay.

Aid from the Cowl is something I just added in but have not yet got to try it out. It seems promising since it will trigger at the end of the turn I cast it so I'm excited to see it play out and it costs less than Deadbridge Chant and doesn't rely on my graveyard. In my playgroup my yard usually gets exiled a few times each game so Cowl can still be an advantage without my yard.

Overeager Apprentice is an all star in a few of my other decks and I recently added him in here to see if he works out. I might remove him after some testing.

Other cards that I'm not 100% sure on are Spellskite and Mishra's Bauble. I may remove one to add in Tezzeret the Seeker since he can tutor any of the artifacts in the deck the turn he is cast (with the exception of Mindslaver).

Thanks for the comment! Don't for get to +1 if you like the deck!

Bokuja on Muldrotha Goodstuff

As it is still early into Muldrotha's life in commander, it is not yet clear what the strongest deck is you could build around her. While this build looks very powerfull as it is, there might be a few cards you could consider.

  • Oath of Druids, considering you play Muldrotha as your Commander anyway, putting into play a few creatures and put a sizeable amount of cards into your "hand" seems like a good thing to be doing here. Also it is an enchantment so you could re-use it of you want to do so with Muldrotha.

  • Riftsweeper, currently you have no way of bringing your combo pieces or wincons back from exile. So if you run into a Bitter Ordeal or something, things could get dicey. Could also function quite good with your Body Snatcher.

  • Living Death, since your deck is about interacting with the yard anyway, this could function as both a boardwipe (albeit an unorthodox one) and a alternate wincon all in one card.

Phantasmal Image enters as a creature already on the battlefield. It cannot be Body Snatcher as it's not on the battlefield yet, nor any other creature entering at the same time as it. It certainly can't be something you're getting back as the result of a triggered ability, as the ability has neither the time to trigger nor resolve.

Awesome! Like the whole Fiend Hunter loop hole... so, what if both Body Snatcher and Phantasmal Image ETB at the same time... can Body Snatcher be sacrificed to recur Body Double for Phantasmal Image to mimic Body Double... or does Phantasmal Image ETB as Body Snatcher? Thanks for the timely response by the way!

Yes! When Body Snatcher enters the battlefield, it's first triggered ability("When Body Snatcher enters the battlefield...") goes on the stack. You can then respond to that trigger by sacking it with Ashnod's Altar for example. Once you've sacked the Snacher, Body Snatcher's second triggered ability("When Body Snatcher is put into a graveyard from play") goes on the stack on top of the first trigger. Since the stack resolves top to bottom, the second ability resolves first, getting a creature back, then the first ability resolves, but does nothing because Snatcher isn't on the field anymore.

I really like the flash into Body Snatcher, why don't you go for eldrazi in this case? I think Geralf's Mindcrusher is weak in this deck since it's not a mill deck. Wurmcoil Engine is another good one. Consider Snapcaster Mage for flashback, or effects that'll let you have more effective Flashes Eternal Witness for example...
