It's just there as an additional tutor, but it is outclassed by Grim Tutor if going for that slot as well. Cuz any card trumps specific tutors, I was thinking of it as a utility line tutor that can grab card draw in the form of Jin or Kozi, disruption in the Myojin, soft lock/mana in Zacama/Vorinclex. But Black tutor does much more in that slot, but 2 cmc specific vs 3 cmc any.

My meta is a mix play group of cEDH and plenty of meta call cards. We tuned our decks for our competitive play group and not just online as all my decks are in paper. It's the reason why Teneb is built the way he is, and while yes the direct upgrade of this type of this deck is the Thrasio/Tymna Flash Hulk build, I like being unique in refining decks to the utmost level it can be. Our group run's a lot more heavy interaction and resource denial, so it's very common to see a lot of thing's being blown up and carrying on to mid game. Most games don't last longer before turn 7, but the amount of interaction and card removal is plenty, Extract is bad generally, but once you exile your most frequent line of fast combo, you already have to find another line. Like let's say for example, DD Kess, you exile Labman your next line to assemble would be the IsoRev into Aetherflux. Someone also P.Grasp your Aetherflux? Well shit now what is your next line? Extract is also good in Tazri where you can get your Eternal Scourge in exile for F.C. and go on combo on the spot.

I have been tempted to run Praetor's Grasp, several occasion to test it out but sometime's it's just a way to mess with people. My other card I would like would be Grim Tutor but I just don't own one yet.

No worries GaymerMaid! Ah it totally slipped my mind that Ornithopter was used as one of your combo lines :P

Here are the pricey cards that you can definitely work your way into:

Those are the cards that I can think of off the top of my head, so I may have forgotten about some haha. Instead of Butcher of Malakir, doesn't gravepact do the same thing? As it would a lot lower in cmc wise as well as being a bit harder to remove due to being an enchantment as opposed to a creature. That also means you have to have an efficient way of getting Omni on field. However as long as you are fine with the deck that is what matters :P

I play in a hyper competitive meta so all decks that I make are kept with that in mind, cuz my friends are a degenerate group of trash (in terms of competitiveness LOL!), I'm not sure what your meta level is at, but I'm always down to help xD

Feel free to check out my decks in my profile to see, my Teneb deck is similar to your Muldrotha :3

DemonDragonJ too powerful for which format? UMA Sealed, Casual or Pauper?

Path to Exile is actually exactly what Pauper needs...Delver and Rainbow Tron Decks are dominating the scene right now and Path would really give the more fun decks (like Acid Trip) a way to step up and be more competitive.

Other cards I think that UMA needs to see reprinted at Common are Oubliette, Lotus Petal and fun cards like Riding the Dilu Horse - this would actually get me buying a booster or two...as it stands I'll stick to one or two singles.

Where Wizards really dropped the ball with UMA was not reprinting: Mox Opal, Imperial Seal, Grim Tutor, Zodiac Dragon, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Phyrexian Altar and Back to Basics.

That's what this set really needs to justify the absurd price tag of the booster boxes - a bunch of great cards (which are all overpriced) that players actually want that would also benefit multiple formats.

This deck is awesome! I almost have all the cards aside from the original dual lands. Since I don't have all the cards on this list and I am new to Yidris storm, what would you recommend replacing these cards with?

Timetwister, Grim Tutor, Imperial Seal, Mox Diamond

Update: Put Fleshbag Marauder back in for Geralf's Messenger. Messenger just couldn’t hang. Added Grim Tutor and cut Altar of the Brood. I like the altar, but I don’t really care about other people’s yards, I definitely don’t care about milling, and most games Chainer doesn’t even come out to abuse it.

SynergyBuild on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

Nath is a popular discard-stax commander, that uses Necrogen Mists, Sadistic Hypnotist, Oppression, and Bottomless Pit along with a lot of general value cards like Root Maze, Manglehorn, Chains of Mephistopheles, Nether Void, The Abyss, Magus of the Abyss, green ramp like Birds of Paradise along with colorless rocks to pump its commander and other colorless stax options out onto the field.

The list can break parity with tap/stay-tapped effects using its massive tokens swarms and Earthcraft when under the effect of its own Winter Orb, Root Maze, Static Orb, etc.

Because the deck attempts to make each player discard lots of cards, Sylvan Library, Dark Confidant, Phyrexian Altar, Library of Leng, and other effects can synergies well to break parity.

Otherwise, the deck runs a normal Golgari-Stax deck, running black-tutors to fetch the colorless silver bullets like Sphere of Resistance against non-Prossh Food Chain lists like Tazri and green to make enough mana to still win.

Other notable cards sometimes run in this strategy are Mind Slash, Cryptolith Rite, Chord of Calling (with tokens it ends up decently), fast mana to cast Nath like Mana Vault, Lotus Petal, Grim Monolith, etc.


Ishkanah is the best golgari Food Chain list in the format, with Demonic Tutor, Grim Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal, etc. to fetch the Chain, and to fetch Eternal Scourge there are a ton of green and black tutors.

With Delirium so easy to get between fetchlands, instants, sorceries, and Lotus Petals, Commune with the Gods and other self-mill cards milling over creatures and artifacts, etc. You can reasonably make infinite spiders with Food Chain, and if you can pay Ishkanah's cost you win.

Howdy. An interesting deck idea you've here with a "hidden" commander.

Tutors

Since she starts the game in your library, I'd recommend including more ways to grab Vraska out early.

Vampiric Tutor, Cruel Tutor, Imperial Seal and Grim Tutor are on the pricier side.

Dimir House Guard synergizes pretty well with the deck, acting both as a tutor for Vraska, Sac-outlet and a 2/3 beater with embedded evasion.

Lands

32 lands and a few mana rocks/dorks and ramp spells may be insufficient for you. I'd up the land count slightly. Gaea's Cradle is always awesome in token based decks but it's price is exorbitant these days...

Recursion

Since Vraska ain't your commander, she can't be put back to the "Command Zone" when her loyalty drops to zero. Noxious Revival could act as a redundancy for Regrowth.

Alternate Wincon

Overwhelming Stampede, Overrun, Craterhoof Behemoth and Garruk Wildspeaker could buff your tokens up for an Alpha Strike if your Plan A fails.
