Courier's Capsule Discussion

Cards I would change for others that just seems better IMO.

Hypersonic Dragon (You should replace it by Vedalken Orrery or Leyline of Anticipation ... or even both)

Act of Treason (Put Insurrection instead, cost a lot, but can win you a game)

By Force ( Vandalblast is way better imo)

Reckless Air Strike (again, put something like Shattering Spree )

Courier's Capsule ( Witching Well )

Turn Aside (I understand it only cost one.. but something like Arcane Denial can counter anything and make you draw, which is excellent with any Niv)

Oppressive Will (Again, Mystic Confluence or Dream Fracture is insane)

Cards you can just cut out for others I have proposed

Adaptive Automaton

Loch Dragon

Quicksilver Dragon

Tandem Lookout

Engulfing Eruption

Reminisce (you already have Elixir of Immortality , and with Laboratory Maniac , I don't think you really need a second one)

Trepanation Blade

Pyromancer's Goggles but it's up to you honestly.. just have no good experience with this card personally

Panharmonicon (not sure why you play it tho..)

Izzet Keyrune

If you want to, you can drop the "dragon" part of the deck.. it's original, funny, but I think you don't need that to win.. So cards like Crucible of Fire , Dragon Tempest , Dragon's Hoard , can be replace.

Creatures

- Emry, Lurker of the Loch

- Baleful Strix

Artifacts

- Aether Spellbomb

- Executioner's Capsule

- Courier's Capsule

- Bolas's Citadel

- Civic Saber

You can bounce the any spellbomb or capsules with Hanna and Emry, there are a few more also I didn't list.

Strix and Civic saber is just a good card here.

Bola's Citadel can ramp you into wins quite often if you are correcting with Alela's lifegain, you can keep her out longer with Swiftfoot Boots / Whispersilk Cloak / Lightning Greaves

No Capsule or Spellbombs? They'e hella cheap and trigger well with Hanna/Alela

I like Aether Spellbomb / Executioner's Capsule / Courier's Capsule

Enchantments: the Theros 'Font's, the 'Seal's (multiple sets), Zendikar's landfall expeditions, Dominaria's Sagas

Artifacts: the 'Spellbomb's (from Mirrodin/Scars of Mirrodin), Courier's Capsule , Executioner's Capsule , any on-color draw-rocks ( Dimir Locket , Simic Cluestone , etc)

Creatures: Lorwyn block's 'Evoke' creatures.

I'm scratching the surface, but most of these cards are ultra-budget to the point most are probably sitting in bulk boxes amongst the friend group.

Well first of all, dropping my link at the bottom. But some all-stars include:

Dreamscape Artist is exceptional ramp.

Druid Lyrist, Elvish Lyrist, Elvish Scrapper, and Scavenger Folk remove artifacts & enchantments.

Glen Elendra Archmage is... hopefully going down in price thanks to the reprint??

Glowspore Shaman and Satyr Wayfinder.

Mulldrifter, Night Incarnate, and Shriekmaw are great and Evoke is great for this deck.

Plaguecrafter is a strictly better Marauder or Executioner.

Spore Frog is the best. The actual best.

Sylvan Safekeeper sacs lands (though she may be too $$), and Turntimber Sower benefits from it.

AEther Barrier seriously slows down aggressive decks.

Animate Dead can hit Muldrotha from the grave.

Excavation is nice.

Font of Fortunes, also nice.

Infernal Darkness is cruel. Sac it to the upkeep cost, cast it post-combat, and there is no enchantment removal in black. They could Seal of Primordium it once, but you just cast it again.

Sinister Concoction is okay budget removal, as is Soul Ransom.

Standstill draws cards.

Unbridled Growth is basically : draw a card.

Chromatic Lantern is FOUR DOLLARS RIGHT NOW

Courier's Capsule and Mishra's Bauble, good draws.

Expedition Map is good ramp.

Perpetual Timepiece is self-mill and woo!

Drakorya on Muldrotha Commander HELP

shirouu: sorry man, I didn't realise Second Chance was that expensive! I was looking at building the list online, and it's only a 1 cent card on MTGO.

It depends on how you want to build the deck, but the good cheap cards I was looking at for Muldrotha were creatures and enchantments that have good sacrifice abilities, and spells that let you draw and discard (since discarding isn't that bad when you can play the cards from your graveyard with your commander).

So cards like Breakthrough, Windfall, Kagemaro's Clutch, Seal of Doom, Seal of Primordium, Sinister Concoction, Courier's Capsule, Executioner's Capsule, Mind Stone, Alchemist's Apprentice, Caustic Caterpillar, Fleshbag Marauder, and Merciless Executioner.

Also, cards like Secrets of the Dead and River Kelpie are good too (though River Kelpie may be too pricey).

Maqi on Muldrotha, the Gravetide *Primer*

Hey landgo

You are right about the Thrull Surgeon. I tend to play 2HG mostly, so I always try to find a way to strip my opponents hands of any counterspells. The biggest thing I like about the Thrull is that it can take lands too.

A reason to add Courier's Capsule would be to diversify the types in the graveyard. My list runs a lot of creatures I want to get back, so I place it being an artifact over a creature type. I guess it's up to anyone's fine tuning.

The Possessed Portal has one thing over the other lock pieces in where it prevents your opponents from finding an answer. The "each turn" and "each player" combination is especially though and requires an immediate answer, which means they need to have that in hand at that moment, or have a tutor effect available.

Traveler247, when I first started looking for cards to use with Muldrotha, the Gravetide I made the mistake of thinking certain cards could go "infinite", failing to realise you can only play one type each turn. Is your example subject to the same mistake or did you call it "infinite" for a different reason?
