Well ULT on Kiora, the Crashing Wave is a game winner too unless your opponent can take care of a 9/9 every turn. Low loyalty but looks useful vs light creature decks. Also ULT a turn earlier after dropping if that matters, but comes out a turn later

I always liked Kiora, the Crashing Wave think she'd be fun in a control shell. her low loyalty is rough but might work in this. Could be fun to test

Depending on the meta i think Liliana, the Last Hope would probably be better in the side

Unmoored Ego could be a fun side deck card.

I'm also going to suggest you look at Hostage Taker Just because i love this card and happy 99% of the time i see it

We can definitely take out Master Biomancer and Kiora, the Crashing Wave to complete the playset of Corpsejack Menace. I don't believe we even need to include additional black mana sources.

I haven't felt the need for it! Planeswalkers don't really help the Birthing Pod chain, which is how I consistently win. I've debated adding Kiora, the Crashing Wave, but I'm not sure if I'll add her.

I thing this deck would do great with a Laboratory Maniac! xD I was wondering what i could build with Muldrotha. Mill is my favorite type of deck but people hate when i mill them so i'll just mill myself! Also i have a little question. What do you think about putting a bit more planes walkers if i already have them: Kiora, Master of the Depths, Kiora, the Crashing Wave, Sorin Markov.

Hi! I'm personally a huge fan of Muldrotha as a commander; so first of all, nice choice! Here are some cuts and additions I'd recommend:


  • Archetype of Endurance. This card is very powerful to be sure, but Muldrotha already needs a lot of mana to function, and you don't have very many ways to cheat it into play.
  • Butcher of Malakir. Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos are more expensive money-wise, but being cheaper on mana and also more resilient makes them much, much better.
  • Deranged Assistant. It looks good at first glance, but it's a 2-mana dork, and you're not playing any of the 1-mana dorks anyways. The single-card mill is a very minor upside.
  • Millikin. Same as above.
  • Nyx Weaver. It can be very good, but it's just too slow. There are much better ways to mill yourself, and a 6-mana Regrowth is way too much mana.
  • Progenitor Mimic. A powerful card to be sure, but this isn't the deck for it.
  • Slum Reaper. I think this card is only really worth running in decks that badly need the 3rd Fleshbag Marauder. Shriekmaw is almost always going to be better.
  • Aether Spellbomb. Looping it can be fun, but bouncing a creature is a terrible waste, and there are better ways to draw cards with artifacts.
  • Perpetual Timepiece. This card was good on Game Knights when they were only using Standard cards, but we have better options.
  • Plague Boiler. This card is also cool, but once again, we have better choices.
  • Demonic Vigor. Fun with Muldrotha, but there is usually so much exile-based removal in Commander that this card isn't as good as you think.
  • Hesitation. Sweet include, but looks a little too cute. Very easy to play around, and also counters your spells.
  • Skeletal Grimace. Same as Demonic Vigor.
  • Thrull Retainer. Same.


Hope this helps! Feel free to leave a comment on my profile if you'd like further suggestions for this or any other deck! Good luck!

I love tribal builds and gave you deck a look see. Have you considered either Kiora, the Crashing Wave or Kiora, Master of the Depths

Chandra, Torch of Defiance doesn’t feel productive enough

Jace, Cunning Castaway yes he can go infinite, but except for that just not productive enough

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets want him back in, but just don’t know where yet

Kiora, the Crashing Wave she didn’t convince me

Nissa, Vital Force she didn’t convince me

Ral Zarek I like him, but not enough in the first build

Saheeli Rai I like her, but she just isn’t what I am looking for right now
