Executioner's Capsule Discussion

This seems Like a really cool deck, I feel that It could use card draw like Moldervine Reclamation and Skullclamp to refill your hand when it sarts to get empty. I see that you have Fecundity which is a great start. I think looking at sacrifice heavy decks like Prossh, Skyraider of Kher or Korvold, Fae-Cursed King (Sorry, both are jund decks), since both of these commanders do something similar when playing cards that like to sacrifice their boards. Having utility in getting an Executioner's Capsule or the black seal would I think make this deck more synergistic. Just some thoughts.

Have you considered running Executioner's Capsule? As long as you have the mana for it, with Glissa on the field, you can kill every non-black creature on their field. You sacrifice the capsule, putting the kill on the stack, capsule goes to graveyard, kill resolves, Glissa triggers, you get capsule back, rinse and repeat.

I love using Viridian Longbow with Deathtouch creatures. It makes it so that they can kill a creature every time they untap.

An artifact that I think would work well with Glissa is Executioner's Capsule

The concept seems intersting but would probably take a bit of time to come together. I would probably suggest trying something resembling a control deck with cards like Executioner's Capsule and dredge to support it.

Seal of Doom, Seal of Primordium, Executioner's Capsule?

probably don't want spark elemental, and cabal therapy can swap out for the Cabal Therapist.

Cauldron Familiar would be good with all the food, as would Trail of Crumbs

other random suggestions: Sorcerer's Broom, Springbloom Druid, Goblin Kaboomist, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, Mortician Beetle, and Blood Aspirant

Hey robcastpwnz, thanks for the thoughts! I have to admit, I have made a few changes to the deck and haven't updated this page, so I'll get on that soon (Cut Memory Erosion and a couple others I believe).

Syr Konrad, the Grim does seem like a good fit in most Mill decks, I'll make some room for him.

I decided on on Seal of Doom over Executioner's Capsule for two reasons, main one being that it is an enchantment rather than an artifact (for diversity of permanents playable with Muldrotha each turn), and the other reason being that it has no activation cost (even though it's more expensive from the yard, I often find myself tapping out during my turn).

Plaguecrafter has crazy good value with Muldrotha, but didn't get me toward Mill any faster.

Mill is a fun strategy that I like to use. Syr Konrad, the Grim is a card that was recently printed in Throne of Eldrain. you might be able to slot him in. He works well with mill, sacrifice and graveyard strategies. He can also combo off with Mindcrank and another mill spell like Phenax. It's not infinite but it can seriously chunk some players out. Eater of the Dead is another card that combos with Phenax and Syr Konrad. He's pretty useless if you don't have Phenax in play though. I like to run Executioner's Capsule and Plaguecrafter to create a soft lock that can be played every turn with Muldrotha out. These 2 cards can really hinder your opponents. Your deck already looks pretty solid though so I wouldn't blame you for not adding these cards.

- Emry, Lurker of the Loch

- Baleful Strix


- Aether Spellbomb

- Executioner's Capsule

- Courier's Capsule

- Bolas's Citadel

- Civic Saber

You can bounce the any spellbomb or capsules with Hanna and Emry, there are a few more also I didn't list.

Strix and Civic saber is just a good card here.

Bola's Citadel can ramp you into wins quite often if you are correcting with Alela's lifegain, you can keep her out longer with Swiftfoot Boots / Whispersilk Cloak / Lightning Greaves
