Crow of Dark Tidings Discussion

A simple card like Stitcher's Supplier gets you 6 cards in your graveyard early. Similar creatures like Crow of Dark Tidings are also good for that. Stinkweed Imp and other dredge are great too. Help get all those creatures to the bin. Also, an excellent blocker you keep bringing back.

I like it ClockworkSwordfish. Gorging Vulture is a strictly better card, and I worry that it will make graveyard shenanigans too reliable. Also, I do favor the Crow of Dark Tidings art, but both are good and certainly up to personal taste. I'll give it a trial run in a few games.

Isn't this backwards of how these leagues normally work? I thought the winner is the only one that doesn't get the budget bump, so the most powerful deck doesn't snowball.

Anyway, Mindwrack Harpy is the most pushed intro deck card I've ever seen. That's my first add.

I also like putting in more creatures with ETB effects. It's kind of awkward that you'll want to tap mana dorks for Hogaak. Glowspore Shaman, Golgari Thug, Crow of Dark Tidings, Gamekeeper, and Mire Triton can all help get Hogaak out by turn 3 if you have a good turn 1 play.

There are a lot of good gold cards in BG graeyard stuff, too: If you have anyone that's relying on indestructibility, Drown in Filth is a good budget option to feed your graveyard. If you're built around Hogaak, I'd think it should regularly be a hard removal spell with upside. Nyx Weaver is just a great card in any graveyard deck, and cheap, too. Jarad's Orders is a good double-tutor. Underrealm Lich is worth the $2, in my opinion. I would also ask yourself whether Eternal Witness is $3.50 better than Acolyte of Affliction/Golgari Findbroker/Treasured Find. Storrev, Devkarin Lich didn't get much fanfare, but the power and price tag are there.

Animist's Awakening is good value at just over $1. World Shaper and Splendid Reclamation are a little more expensive, but higher impact than other $4-5 cards I see in the list. Lower on the ramp ladder, note that Harrow and Springbloom Druid put a land in the yard. Funeral Rites isn't a bad draw spell for this deck. Same for Winding Way, Gather the Pack and Relentless Pursuit. Syphon Mind doesn't have much to do with the theme, but I start with it in most of my black value decks. Dark Deal could be very good, especially if your draw power is maximized and you can use your yard as a second hand. Greenwarden of Murasa is just a powerful card. Same for Phyrexian Delver.

Some other general budget cards for considering: Ransack the Lab, Corpse Churn, Dead Reckoning, Grapple with the Past, Hatchery Spider, Millikin, Mindwrack Demon, Once and Future, Splinterfright, The Mending of Dominaria, Skullwinder, Blood for Bones, and Vigor Mortis.

Siren of the Silent Song is a favorite of mine. Also, no Empty the Pits , Syphon Flesh , Vizier of the Scorpion , or Moan of the Unhallowed ? Gotta go wide! I also recommend Stitcher's Supplier , Returned Reveler , and Crow of Dark Tidings . Stocking the graveyard is a good way to spend an early turn, so you can start getting value right away when TSG hits the board, and the mediocre bodies don't matter later, since they can come back as 4/4's. I also recommend Mire Triton and Tymaret Calls the Dead when Theros Beyond Death comes out.

SCARY_N00B The artwork on Crow of Dark Tidings is great and I appreciate the gradual value it grants. But in most cases I would rather have an ability that mills me for 3-5 cards at once. Especially at 3 mana. Thanks for the feedback though!

Maybe find a way to add Crow of Dark Tidings ? Its a pretty solid way to mill yourself.

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

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...
