32 lands is pretty low especially for a 6 drop commander. The ramp helps but the last thing you wanna do is miss land drops. I try to run at least 36, if not 38.

Standstill is cute but your deck isn’t set to abuse it and it draw two opponents 3 cards. It’s kinda cool to recur it but I think you have better options. Font of fertility is also too cute I think. Three is a lot for 1 land and Wayfarer bauble is colorless so I’d cut Font.

Second chance is interesting especially with doom whisper to get infinite turns on demand, but fair warning some people will get pretty mad at you for running it. If you’re cool with that, go ahead but be ready for the salt you may receive.

You’re a valuetown deck but I think you still need one more straight up late game bomb to draw into. Perhaps an Avenger of Zendikar or a Deadeye Navigator. Wins if unanswered and works well with Muldrotha. Emrakul, the Promised End is hilarious and very mean. On the silly side Clone Legion and Archeomancer is not good but very funny. Even a big durdler like Thunderfoot Baloth or Realm Seekers can finish a game.

You’re short on mass removal spell other then bane of the living which I don’t think is very good. Not everything has to be synergistic with Muldrotha. Toxic Deluge, Decree of Pain, Deadly Tempest for the budget, all will get the job done. I’d cut The Eldest Reborn for at least one.

Hope you enjoy the format!

Black sun's zenith is a staple worth owning, but there are tons of cheaper boardwipes that work 90% as well. Crux of Fate, Hex, Deadly Tempest.

Harvest Season will usually be worse than Kodama's unless you run significantly more 1 and 2 drops. I think you could use more ramp cards in general. One with Nature will do some goddamn work in your deck and is a one-drop.

Infect could be nice. People will assume you're running it anyway. Triumph of the Hordes is a good $ option. Otherwise Tainted Strike or Grafted Exoskeleton. You're going wide, so Golari anthem effects could be good 1x Overwhelming Stampede, Pathbreaker Ibex. Beastmaster does it really well and I see you already run it. Is an awesome card to drop when you already have 7 creatures out.

You have a lot of ways to get damage to creatures and players. You might want to add in some equipment like Quietus Spike or Scytheclaw to take advantage of that.

Counting your car draw spells: Generous Patron, Deathreap Ritual, Skullclamp. These are all great because they will likely give recurrent value, but I would triple this overall count.

Reclaim, Regrowth, and especially Creeping Renaissance are some of the best cards you could run. Your creatures will be boardwiped. Being able to grab 100% of your creatures from the graveyard to your hand stwice is amazing.

As far as removal goes, Bane of Progress fits the counters theme while also providing a lot of removal that won't really touch you. Manglehorn is a low CMC body that has removal built in.

I’m noticing a lot of single target removal, which is fine. Personally, I prefer more global effects (like Fleshbag Marauder) that scale better in a multiplayer game. Maybe cut Walk the Plank and other sourcery-speed answers for this kind of effect. The same can be said about Cabal Therapy type effects. They’re pretty good in 1v1 matches to pick out stuff you’d otherwise have trouble dealing with, but in multiplayer they don’t do enough.

Black has a ton of great sweepers that seem like they would fit into the deck. Damnation is the best, but Life's Finale, Decree of Pain, and Deadly Tempest are all great effects to have that won’t cost you as much, and will clear the board more effectively than Flaying Tendrils and Yahenni's Expertise.

The Disentomb effects seem kinda counterintuitive to the reanimation plan. With this kind of deck, your trying to cheat something big out early, not get something back to hand where it will either stay for multiple turns or cost a ton of mana to get back.

Speaking of mana, a couple more ramp effects, like signets (Dimir Signet, Orzhov Signet, Azorius Signet) and talismans (Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Progress).

Hope this helps!

Have you played this much yet?
I found with my version that having sac fodder was a little more important than value cards like Zulaport Cutthroat. Cards like Captain's Claws and Animation Module are cheap ways to get sac fodder that survive wraths, but cards like Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder or Ophiomancer are also handy. When playing voltron, other players tend to go for my commander, so sometimes I was facing down removal on 2 or 3 of the turns before I untap again.

Also as long as you have a creature heavy meta, board wipes are much better than spot removal like Attrition or Murder. Yahenni gets big so much faster with wipes making it that much easier to get to 21. I run Deadly Tempest, Decree of Pain, Extinguish All Hope, In Garruk's Wake, Plague Wind, and Crux of Fate because board wipes are so effective in my meta.

just from personal preference I like Blade of the Bloodchief a lot. all this is IMHO.
Have fun, and good luck!

FancyTuesday on The Unused Demon

For starters, 39 land is a little heavy. I'd cut two and replace them with rocks, namely Jet Medallion and Charcoal Diamond. On the subject of lands, not sure why you're running Terramorphic in a mono-colored deck with no landfall triggers, I'd suggest you swap out for Bojuka Bog which gives you graveyard hate in a land slot. Cabal Coffers/Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth might break the bank for your acquire board but dang are they nice to have.

Lich's Mastery strikes me as very dangerous to run in self-described "suicide black." Half of your effects cause you to lose life, as does your Commander's triggered ability. There are only 7 cards that actually gain you life in this deck and I'd cut most of them. On that subject I'd cut Orbs of Warding; loss of life isn't damage and it won't stop you bleeding to your own effects. Pestilence does damage but it's not a creature.

Since Sanguine Bond doesn't really hit off anything in the deck except Gray Merchant I'd trade it for Whip of Erebos, gives you reanimation options and lifelink on everything to help with all the life loss.

Deadly Tempest seems more on-theme than Extinguish All Hope. You don't have so many creatures that it'll gouge you too hard, which also makes me question whether you're going to get much value from Dread Return.

Worn Powerstone over Darksteel Ingot, it curves into your commander a turn earlier and in mono color the has a lot more impact than "one of any color." Similarly, Thran Dynamo is a long stronger here than Gilded Lotus here.

Read the Bones over Dark Bargain. Bargain's over-costed for 2 cards, and it's hardly a "trick" you need to hold 4 mana open for. If you wanna play toward reanimator there are better ways in black to pitch creatures.

Cabal and Dark Rituals have their place in EDH, but it's usually in highly competitive decks where you need to go off on a combo by turn 4 or 5 and "burning out" doesn't matter. I suggest more long term benefit cards, draw engines or ramp.

I think that's enough for now. Hope some of it was helpful!

PS: You need to set the format to EDH instead of Standard, as is it blocks suggestions.

W3R3PLATYPUS, I second Rakdos Charm. It's great at punishing go-wide strategies and you don't have to wait for them to attack in order to punish them.

I also really like Deadly Tempest. I have it in my Yahenni deck. A sweeper that comes with some extra punishment.

Austere Command is relatively cheap (less the $5) and provides you with great flexibility as to what you want to destroy. Forced March could be very interesting is this deck, but is heavy on the black mana. A Day of Judgment will set you back just 2 or 3 bucks. End Hostilities is cheaper still and takes out equipment for one CMC more. Fumigate is the same CMC for $2. Another 5 CMC card is Planar Outburst and it is cheap!Nevinyrral's Disk is cheap, but takes a turn to activate. Then there's good old Akroma's Vengeance and Deadly Tempest can be had for $2 or less, but Extinguish All Hope is less and you also have Planar Cleansing, although it's heavy on the white mana.

Hope this helps!

JuQ on Slimefoot, the Stowaway

Deadly Tempest seems a weird card choice for a saproling deck, virtually any other board wipe would be a better deal.
You can also go infinite with Illusionist's Bracers and the Ashnod's Altar.
If you have a spare Doubling Season there is no reason not to include it over Primal Vigor. You can run them both.
Heartstone maybe?
More card engines, I always try to include at least eight of them. The usual suspects for me are Deathreap Ritual, Shamanic Revelation, Skullmulcher, Disciple of Bolas, Phyrexian Arena, Seasons Past, Vampiric Rites...
I'd add some board pumps as win conditions in order not to depend just on Ashnod's Altar, it can be removed or countered. Overwhelming Stampede, Beastmaster Ascension, Triumph of the Hordes, Bloodspore Thrinax or Craterhoof Behemoth, all of them are solid cards.
To make space I'd drop the thallid theme (keeping Psychotrope Thallid as card engine), it doesn't feel strong enough, but if you still really want to go with the thallids I'd add Winding Constrictor.
I would also cut Champion of Stray Souls and Verdeloth the Ancient.
