synthecate on The Gravetide will drown you...

2 days ago

Thanks Last_Laugh, great suggestions, all! I dont yet own a Intuition or a Gilded Drake , although they are definitely on my list of things to get! Both Crystal Vein and Cephalid Coliseum were in the deck at some point. IIRC they were swapped with Lion's Eye Diamond and Bazaar of Baghdad respectively. Do you think they should be in the list still for the sake of redundancy? What would you swap out for them (or Sylvan Safekeeper for that matter)?

Crystal Vein allows you to ramp by in Muldrotha.

Cephalid Coliseum is a great draw option that only takes a land slot.

Intuition doesn't give your opponents a favorable choice.

I'd also try to get Sylvan Safekeeper out of your maybeboard and in the deck.

I'll try to keep things budget friendly. First, get rid of all 7 of your mana rocks that cost but only add 1 mana. Generator Servant , Basalt Monolith , Worn Powerstone , Coalition Relic , Crystal Vein , and Lotus Petal if it's in budget.

Aqueous Form , Bonus Round , Smoke , Cataclysm , Razia's Purification , Long-Term Plans , Brainstorm , Dream Cache , Ral Zarek , and Dragon Breath are all good budget(ish) options.

I'm honestly not sure where this thing is going. I hope you play in a small playgroup though... strangers see Narset and you're automatically public enemy number one.

I have a few suggestions that're good in pretty much every Narset list.

Smoke , Strionic Resonator , Aqueous Form , Spirit Mantle , Steel of the Godhead , and Brainstorm

I'd also consider more mana rocks/ramp and a few ways to give haste. Pentad Prism , Lotus Petal , Fellwar Stone , Ancient Tomb , Crystal Vein , Generator Servant , and Need for Speed . Dragon Breath is also nice as it comes back from the grave automatically whenever you recast Narset.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's a very tuned extra turns/combats list but it still might give you a few cards to use. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Thank you for the suggestions! Cephalid Coliseum and Glen Elendra are definitely cards I plan to add, I just need to buy them first.

While I do think Command Beacon is a card worth running, with the amount of mana my deck is able to consistently produce, I don’t think the card is worth the $20 price tag for my current budget.

Crystal Vein is also a solid choice, I’d just have to find a land to replace with it. Currently it’s competing with Ancient Tomb but I haven’t had many issues with my life total so it might not make the cut.

I’ve been testing Siren Stormtamer and it’s done pretty well so far. I think I prefer Kaya's Ghostform to protect Muldrotha from board wipes but Siren’s flexibility in protecting other creatures definitely has its uses, especially in the right metas.

I don’t plan on putting in Song of the Dryads or Imprisoned in the Moon . They are flexible removal and work well against commanders, but for my current game plan they are a little awkward. Nearly all of my removal is designed to be repeatable and to lock opponents out of the game. These enchantments must pick a target and then stay attached for the rest of the game, like a single target removal spell for any other deck. Other than the extra utility against commanders, I don’t see much of a difference between these cards and something like Assassin's Trophy . This may be meta-specific for me though. In more diverse metas I could see these cards doing good work.

I have a few specific cards I'd suggest that work well in any Muldrotha list.

Lands: Crystal Vein , Cephalid Coliseum , and Command Beacon are all excellent here.

Counterspells: Glen Elendra Archmage and Siren Stormtamer over most instants.

Versatile, Reusable Removal: Song of the Dryads and Imprisoned in the Moon

Honestly been a minute since my Muldrotha list was still put together, I'm sure I'm missing something. Feel free to check my list for other ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite

Hey, thanks alot for your suggestions to the deck, I made a few adjustments to the listing to get the Crystal Vein , Fellwar Stone and Sword of Feast and Famine in, I am considering cutting the sword for 2 reasons, one I notice I rarely get 5 lands by the time I win because the mana rocks got me there, and second it is a spendy card and if its gonna be one of the more expensive cards in the deck it better consistently be winning me the game. Currently Im using Helm of the Host in the slot of the sword which might be replaced by sword or maybe something else. Thanks again, if you have any other suggestions let me know! :)

Ok, I like where you are going so far. The pillowfort element is nice but drop it as you add more turns/combats and mana ramp. They're nice to have but eventually your odds of hitting that next combat/turn make it irrelevant.

Ramp: Drop Gilded Lotus and replace it with Fellwar Stone or any Mox besides Amber. Ancient Tomb and Crystal Vein are worth making room for also as are the rocks in your sideboard. Your goal should be Narset on turn 4 at the latest (and you should feel disappointed every time it happens on turn 4 instead of 2 or 3).

Turns/Combats - Obviously work on acquiring all of these. I also like Ral Zarek here using his +1 to untap things like Strionic Resonator and his ult is pretty easy to hit for 2-3 extra turns. Also get Sword of Feast and Famine in here to end games with Aggravated Assault .
