Crow of Dark Tidings Discussion

ICSM on "Bring Out Yer Dead" (Muldrotha, the Gravetide)

5 months ago

I'm of the opinion that Perpetual Timepiece is bordeline mandatory in any muldrotha list. It both self-mills and protect your yard for a very cheap price. It is just flat-out better than, say, Crow of Dark Tidings .

You are running World Shaper , but not The Mending of Dominaria or Splendid Reclamation . While shaper is by far the best of the three, I see no reason not to include the other two.

You seem to be missing a sac outlet to get your Eternal Witness, Archeomancer and the like into the yard so you can play them again. The Ideal would be something like Ashnod's Altar , or Phyrexian Tower , but Vampiric Rites and Viscera Seer are budget alternatives.

What do you mean you don't play Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds in Muldrotha? Those are beyond awesome, because they garantee land drops every turn as long as your commander is online.

oh and btw. I played a couple games with 4x Butcher Ghoul, and even though I didn't draw any in either game, I did just fine without the Crow of Dark Tidings so... idk... generally positive reviews...

PooperDix: Yeah I figured it was a typo of some sort, lol.

I've considered Gravedigger, but that would mean, if I draw no ramp, and am lucky enough to hit a land play each and every turn, I would have no recursion until turns 4 or 5 (by playing Gravedigger or Midnight Scavengers, respectively). If I draw 1 of 3 Dark Rituals, then I could reanimate as early as turn 2, but only if. Raise Dead is a only single to get any creature back. Additionally, I have no manual discard in here, thus I would never actually be able to activate Grave Scrabbler in this deck. Gravedigger would still be be preferred, imho, but only if Raise Dead didn't exist. And Fierce Empath is restricted to tutoring creatures of CMC 6+, and Midnight Scavengers is CMC, making that a whiff.

Finally, I'm considering -3 Crow of Dark Tidings & -1 Raise Dead in exchange for +4 Butcher Ghouls. Probably gonna playtest that tomorrow. I'll report back later with my mission's results.

Skaab Ruinator is great but I don't like the idea of him sharing a graveyard with both Splinterfright andBoneyard Wurm - these cards require creatures be in the grave, where as the Ruinator is busy ditching them all. Remove one group or the other (personally i'd keep the Ruininators)

In terms of value for self-mill, there are better cards than Tome Scour and Autumnal Gloom  Flip (which in the current setup looks unlikely to flip soon). You want cards that provide benefits while also milling. Stuff like Stitcher's Supplier, and Grisly Salvage (or even just Crow of Dark Tidings).

Finally, you probably don't actually need 4 copies of Ruininator, 2-3 seems to work fine (i have a sultai dredge deck also) - reason being you just need one to show it's face and the rest kindof become redundant and dead-cards.

WItC on Budget Beginner Teaching Decks (#4 Black)

M19 considerations:

Stitcher's Supplier is a nice card with good art, but the deck already has Crow of Dark Tidings as a flier and has one drops as well.

PonchoLibre on Storm of Crows

bloob, a couple of my honorable mentions like Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip would probably work. If you are looking for something that is more budget though you could try Crow of Dark Tidings for a similar effect to Crow Storm.

Im really having trouble making a decision on what i should take out to put Master of Cruelties in. i already replaced Crow of Dark Tidings with Buried Alive. i was thinking maybe Butcher of the Horde, but i dont know because i only have a small amount of sac-outlets. please if you have any suggestions at all i would greatly appreciate it.
