Endless Atlas - Draw

Tome of Legends - Draw

Deflecting Swat - Amazing , also see Bolt Bend

Flamekin Village - Haste outlet

Zealous Conscripts - Combo with kiki and just good value

Arch of Orazca - Draw

Commune with Lava - Draw

Humble Defector - Draw , politics. Add Homeward Path for synergy and to ensure they dont take your commander with an enchantment (or anything else) and you're just stuck twiddling your thumbs.

Command Beacon - For when he becomes too expensive to cast

Overall the list is ok. You just need a little more ramp as well. If you want suggestions for more adds and cuts, lmk. Youre deck is way too reliant on your commander if you use lose him, you lose.

Hey Brad,

Thanks for the kind words! To reply to your suggestions:

Command Beacon used to be a consideration of mine when building the deck. However after test playing it, I found Gonti to be cast more often from my graveyard than command zone. Also People playing against this deck do not want to see Gonti die as they know he will come back and steal more stuff. He is a great attacker deterrent.

Kaya's Ghostform has been played in this deck in the past, and while it is a great recursion for Gonti and a superior protection for my (stolen) planeswalkers, it seemed that the prerequisite of having a creature or walker in play made it less optimal in my setup. Still, amazing reanimation card, may get put back in at a later date.

Shade's Form is a card I have never even seen, great find! I do agree that this could be an alternative wincon, the deck really wants to win with what it steal, just as a rule of cool.

Keep the good ideas coming though :)

Cool deck Command Beacon would fit nice. Kaya's Ghostform and Shade's Form would be good to get extra triggers from your commander so you could use him as chump or sac him and get a free proc. The form could also buff him for a command kill giving the situation

Hey bradtheimpaler13 - thanks for the comment and suggestions.

I agree 100% with Command Beacon and have actually been running it but not had a chance to update the deck list here yet.

As for Shade's Form, if it works the "obvious" way then I totally agree it would do some decent work here, letting you save your best creature from the massacre. That being said, the more I think about it it might not work unless it's the (almost) biggest creature out there already (and so (almost) the last to die). E.g. if you wanted to save your Crypt Ghast, which is a 2/2, and there's a bunch of other creatures around, including a couple that are 3/3 or bigger. Whenever you get up to 2 triggers of -1/-1, the crypt ghast dies. Shade's form triggers and everything gets another -1/-1, but not the crypt ghast as it's in the yard, then your shade's form trigger resolves, putting crypt ghast on the board again, but you're still cascading through -1/-1 for creatures on the board. If another 2 creatures die, your Crypt Ghast is going to die again.

Happy to be shown I'm wrong about that, but it is how I would interpret it if I was asked to I think.

I also have reservations over Blade of the Bloodchief for the same reasons. It doesn't always save your creature the way you feel like it should in my experience.

Command Beacon so you can get another play of your girl on the cheap maybe. Cool deck. Shade's Form is a highly underated card could fit nice in here.

Crystal Vein - Ramps with Muldrotha out.

Cephalid Coliseum - Good draw that only takes a land slot.

Command Beacon - Never pay more than for Muldrotha.

Song of the Dryads/Imprisoned in the Moon are 2 of your best pieces of versatile removal in Muldrotha.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite

Wouldn't Command Beacon be really good in this deck?
