forgot to mention the lack of green also cuts the accessibility to Food Chain combos which is important in Sidisi combo. Also made a small grammatical error with the wrong form of "your" in my previous post, but I'll go ahead and blame that on lack of sleep.

n0bunga you know Food Chain mana has tp be on creatures, right? You can't use it on abilities, you can reuse the etb with fc though.

Food Chain. Infinite mana outlets that win without sacrifice outlet, haste enablers, or extra turns are better than ones that need them, that is why ishkanah is better.

Oh, no need to be so formal! Also, why Regrowth over Eternal Witness, wouldn't the witness have more synergy, making mana on combo turn with Food Chain? Speaking of which, have you seen the change with some lists running Recruiter of the Guard/Imperial Recruiter to fetch Squee, the Immortal before exiling them to cast him?

I'd need both Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar for that to be the case. I can either choose infinite colorless mana or infinite dudes, with only Ashnod's Altar. And I suppose once I have infinite dudes I can get infinite colorless mana, as you suggest. I have been considering adding Walking Ballista, but I only have a single copy and it's in Wisdom of the Claw. If I end up adding it, I'll probably add Eternal Scourge to go infinite with Food Chain.

Actually, this list is a tier 1.5 list, and the worst matchups aren't fast combo lists like Food Chain Tazri, but rather more powerful late-game decks like Teferi stax and blood pod.

But yes, this is a well-built and tried-and-true strategy that has held the test of time in cEDH for over a year with great success.

Bchong on Muldrotha, Recycling Queen

I am just going to start off by saying that Muldrotha excels are enabling weird combos or recurring value plays. It also seems like you are playing a fairly cheaper deck so I won't bother with all the lands you could put in and other super expensive stuff.

One of the things you are missing are

all the 0 mana artifacts: Tormod's Crypt Lotus Petal

1cmc: Caustic Caterpillar Elephant Grass any one cmc mana dorks Nature's Claim Carrion Feeder Skullclamp Unbridled Growth Nihil Spellbomb Pithing Needle All of the one cmc tutors such as Entomb Crop Rotation

2 cmc: all the possible signets and talismans, Zulaport Cutthroat Ratchet Bomb Animate Dead

3cmc: Windfall Frantic Search and you don't have to listen to this one...for of just the fun card Oppression

4cmc: Null Brooch

Some of the super fun combos are... Dream Halls Food Chain

now what to take out and why... In general I play in a faster meta where many of your creatures aren't able to even be played before the game ends

Cut: everything that is 5 cmc and above and every planeswalker except Shriekmaw Mulldrifter Deadeye Navigator this is because these card are simply not impactful enough and there are better alternatives around...

remove every single "when creature dies everyone loses a life" except Blood Artist and my suggestion of Zulaport Cutthroat you have too many redundant affects.

and here is just some fairly "bad" cards in your deck 4 cmc or less: World Shaper Vizier of the Menagerie Solemn Simulacrum Sidisi, Brood Tyrant Hostage Taker Dreamborn Muse Baleful Strix Nevinyrral's Disk Control Magic Reliquary Tower

you might even want to consider taking out Sol Ring but i guess it helps you play muldrotha

anyways good luck to you

If you wanted to keep the Food Chain combo nerfed but still want to go off with an infinite combo, you can check out my Prossh deck here:
