Lanzo493 on WU Budget Blinky-boi (WIP)

13 minutes ago

I’ve also played Brago and there are 2 very good budget things you can do with this deck. 1, ramp. 2, draw. Brago basically doubles your mana from mana rocks, so if you have a lot of mana and a lot of draw, that is powerful. That’s why Rhystic Study and Smothering Tithe cost so much.

Let’s start with ramp. He can blink mana rocks so your mana rocks need to enter untapped. No Fieldmist Borderpost effects. Instead, you have Mana Geode , Darksteel Ingot , Prismatic Lens , Hedron Archive , Basalt Monolith , Peregrine Drake (he’s fun), and anything else you have. Sol Ring and what not.

Now draw. Mystic Remora is definitely worth the price. It’ll draw you a ton of cards and Brago will keep the upkeep cost to . Other good draw is Trial of Knowledge , Sea Gate Oracle , Unquestioned Authority , Traveler's Cloak , Pentarch Ward , Curator's Ward (you draw cards and can trenchant your commander!) Heliod's Pilgrim , and more. There are always permanents that help you draw.

Shoutout to Cloudform and Lightform for cheating everything into play. Should you want to keep your manifested a creature a 2/2 instead of blinking it (for example, it’s an instant) you only need to blink the ~~~~form enchantment. Also, Reality Acid and Nevermaker do great.

Also, planeswalkers. Add them if you’ve got them. Like Narset, Parter of Veils . She’s good.

Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves . You’ll need to protect your commander. Most people target Brago.

Those are my suggestions anyway. Now if you’re to take any cards out, I’d start with Serra's Blessing . Your commander can blink itself and all your creatures so they have pseudo-vigilance. I’d also remove instants and sorcerers from your deck that can be easily replaced with a blinkable permanent with the same effect ( Unsummon —> Nevermaker ).

I don't love: Hedron Archive lots of mana symbol requirements in your cards. Legacy Weapon . I think this is just kinda bad. Door to Nothingness only kills one person. Jund Charm too many bad modes, even with the cute +1/+1 synergy. Ondu Giant play one of the cheaper ones.

TheAmazingSteve on Another Muldrotha deck

I agree with Pikobyte on the protection options; they are all pretty great. Another option you could consider in the way of protection is Shielding Plax ; I prefer this over Diplomatic Immunity since it has the option of drawing you a card.

Now, as for making the deck faster, I prefer to [along with the more premium ramp spells] run some includes that synergize with Muldrotha, like Font of Fertility and Wayfarer's Bauble . Also, Burnished Hart can be pretty alright, but may be a little slow (Test it). I would cut Primal Growth and run faster ramp too like Rampant Growth , Farseek and Nature's Lore . I don't think this deck needs the extra card advantage from Cultivate either, so don't run that. The deck also can recur mana dorks if they die, so Llanowar Elves are a great card here, along with their functional reprints.

I like to run Seal of Doom as more redundancy for your removal.

I would upgrade the mana base - doesn't have to be anything too fancy, just some Kaladesh fast lands, check lands, and pain lands in place of Temple of the False God , Dimir Aqueduct , Darkwater Catacombs .

I would also consider adding/replacing mana rocks that can sacrifice themselves for benefits. ( Commander's Sphere , Mind Stone , Hedron Archive ). They will let you dig for your combo faster without giving up much of an opportunity cost.

[As for cuts, Phyrexian Delver feels unnecessary, as does Apprentice Necromancer . I would also try to find a balance between all permanent types (maybe even run some planeswalkers) in order to get the most out of Muldrotha.

Things to remove:

Sphinx of Uthuun

Also remove any counterspell that is over cmc 4 and asks a opponent to pay a set amount mana like: Convolute and Scattering Stroke

Counterspells like: Condescend that ask a player to X are okay to stay, they are the kind you want along with the unconditional ones.

Hope it helps fam.

Brynx on Angrath Discard/Sacrifice

1 week ago

I chose Hijack mainly because it fits with Angrath, but also because it takes artifacts. A lot of infinite combos that I run into use an artifact as one of their core pieces. Being able to shut that down by taking them is useful. Mana rocks like Dreamstone Hedron and Hedron Archive are pretty common, and make great targets to take and sacrifice. I hadn't considered Kari Zev's Expertise , but it could definitely make it into the deck.

xmistfitxzviprx any suggestions as to what to replace for Ancestral Statue ? I want to keep the curve where it is, so as for 4 drops to replace, I was thinking either Hedron Archive or Perilous Vault . The Archive is nice to have for additional ramp and some card draw, but 4 mana for 2 mana is slower than the rest. Whereas the Vault I am finding myself not casting it as much. I have thought about putting in Nevinyrral's Disk instead of Perilous Vault . What are your overall thoughts?

I don't mind Hedron Archive , and have it in some decks, but its 4 CMC for 2 mana. Yeah, its sacs for cards eventually, but still, I'd rather my ramp be a bit cheaper. Thran Dynamo perhaps?

Agree with the Locket suggestion. Not a fan of Powerstone personally. It may come down T3 but being tapped you can't use it T3 which may or may not be an issue. I'm partial to Hedron Archive . It comes down a turn later than Powerstone but is useable right away and sacs for draw.

Nice deck, +1 from me!
