LukeEffe on Blue Tron into legacy suggestions

Yeah Vesuva would be sweet but it's kinda out of budget, and 1x isn't enough I think. Crystal Vein instead is something interesting I didn't know about :D

If I were you I would completely scrap the tron and use Vesuva and Crystal Vein. I know vesuva is expensive but maybe you would be able to get a few

Merciless Executioner needs his dead twin Fleshbag Marauder. Crystal Vein is a good land here (don't overuse it, it causes you to miss land drops). Elephant Grass is great for keeping the hate Muldrotha generates off your back. This last card I've been having great results out of here, Bear Umbra. The land untap is great and totem armor has saved my butt a few times.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, upvotes, and ideas on any of my lists is appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite

Strangelove on Ulamog and friends

Hey friend, I see most people play with Kozilek, the Great Distortion as their commander (card draw makes the most sense), though I'm a fan of Emrakul, the Promised End.

In order to really make this fly you need all the broken, expensive cards like Mana Vault, Ancient Tomb... (someday when we're rich an famous, ya?) Do pick up Urza's Tower, Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant, and Crystal Vein tho.

And since you're not abusing all those expensive cards, I'd plat Skittering Invasion just to have the ramp.

Last_Laugh on Any seats left on the bandwagon?

Not a bad start but I do have a few suggestions for you.

First, lands. Crystal Vein, Strip Mine, and Cephalid Coliseum are all good lands here. I'd also work on getting Verdant Catacombs or running off color fetches to take advantage of Muldrotha's built in Crucible of Worlds.

Next, artifacts/enchantments. Lotus Petal, Altar of Dementia, Secrets of the Dead, Survival of the Fittest (available in gold border for MUCH cheaper), Rhystic Study, Elephant Grass, and Bear Umbra.

Creatures. Maybe Merciless Executioner, Fierce Empath, Shriekmaw, Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Grave-Troll and Spore Frog.

I have several suggestions so gonna break them down by card type. I'm not covering planeswalkers, suffice it to say I'm not a huge fan of any here unless you have Liliana of the Veil sitting around lol.

First, lands: Cephalid Coliseum, Crystal Vein, and Command Beacon are all great options here.

Enchantments: Secrets of the Dead, Mystic Remora, Elephant Grass, Dance of the Dead, Necromancy, and I'm partial to Bear Umbra for both the land untap and totem armor.

Artifacts: Altar of Dementia, Lotus Petal, and Nihil Spellbomb.

Intants/Sorceries: Beast Within, Cyclonic Rift, and Heroic Intervention

I'm admittedly going for some low hanging fruit here but still good cards here lol.

Fleshbag Marauder needs his living brother Merciless Executioner. Spore Frog is disgusting here. Glen Elendra Archmage is 100% worth it if you can afford her. Animate Dead, Necromancy, and/or Dance of the Dead are all good. Entomb is obviously worth it. Crystal Vein, Command Beacon, and Cephalid Coliseum are all good lands here also.

Last_Laugh on The Gravetide Don't Care...

I'm not sure how well Living Death and Primal Surge strategies mesh... one needs cards in your grave and you have some non permanents to support this strat which both weaken Primal Surge. I'd pick one or the other (current list looks more Primal Surge oriented).

Got a few suggestions for you that'll work either way though. Fleshbag Marauder to go with his twin Merciless Executioner. Eternal Witness to pull anything out of your grave, but especially Primal Surge. Cephalid Coliseum, Fauna Shaman, and Survival of the Fittest are all great selective ways to get cards in your grave (survival is available in gold border for MUCH cheaper). Crystal Vein and Lotus Petal are both good options for ramp here. Nihil Spellbomb is a good option here also.

If you want to go the Living Death route I'd suggest Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp, Entomb, and Intuition to get cards in your grave. I'd also recommend more reanimation focus if you go this route and run Necromancy and/or Dance of the Dead.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Not primal surge but still plenty of permanents. Feedback, ideas, and upvotes are appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite
