Lay Claim Discussion

Tuvasa the Sunlit. Build an aura enchantress deck. Lots and lots of auras. Cards from Rancor to Eldrazi Conscription and use these auras to make there creatures massive big and scary. Then when you are ready, take them with cards like Lay Claim, Take Possession, and Control Magic and use there creature to kill the other players.

Optimator on Muldrotha deck

Looking good! It's hard to screw up Muldrotha. Just go to value town. Your selection of creatures seems great!

That said, I would include a little more ramp. You are at eightish, which is where one usually wants to be in an EDH deck, but Muldrotha is usually kill-on-sight and 6 CMC. Try to use more things that permanently get a land into the field, which you already have a good amount of, like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach. Also, Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, and Wayfarer's Bauble can be brought back for value--making them particularly good. Elvish Reclaimer is an interesting choice too.

The one-CMC dorks (Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Boreal Druid, Arbor Elf, Wild Growth (and to a lesser extent Birds of Paradise and Utopia Sprawl) are all extremely good generally for their speed and chumping ability. If they get whacked or boardwiped they can slowly be brought back later. Getting Muldrotha out as soon as possible is very worth it. I don't run many mana dorks in my Muldrotha deck. I would run as few artifact rampers as possible, since you don't have to (as you run Green). Lands are always safest. Commander's Sphere being brought back for the card draw is nice--probably better than the Darksteel Ingot.

Good job on including Evolving Wilds. I would also add Terramorphic Expanse and maybe Myriad Landscape, Warped Landscape, and Blighted Woodland. The Mirage fetches (Bad River, et al) are decent but better with fetchable lands that have two colors--like Sunken Hollow and Watery Grave. Be sure to include Opulent Palace. Exotic Orchard, Grand Coliseum, and Command Tower are worth including too. On a budget, Vivid Marsh, Vivid Creek, and Vivid Grove are all good too. That all said, I still like running a healthy amount of Basic Lands for repeated fetching.

Protecting Muldrotha is important. Kaya's Ghostform is an excellent choice. I would also include a combination of Aspect of Mongoose, Canopy Cover, Alpha Authority, Diplomatic Immunity, Alexi's Cloak, Cloudform, Mystic Veil, Robe of Mirrors, Mirror Shield, Whispersilk Cloak, Neurok Stealthsuit, Mask of Avacyn, and Swiftfoot Boots. Usually the Enchantment Auras are considered weak because they can be two-for-one'd, but Muldrotha can bring them right back!

Personally, I believe every single EDH deck should run at least two boardwipes, and more if you can find the room. Sometimes it's just an emergency. On a budget in Sultai colors I like Crux of Fate and Gaze of Granite the most, followed by In Garruk's Wake (should have the mana!), Deadly Tempest, Decree of Pain, Extinction Event, Hex, Nevinyrral's Disk, Oblivion Stone, Killing Wave, Hythonia the Cruel, Life's Finale, Massacre Girl, Necromantic Selection, and Black Sun's Zenith. Pernicious Deed is great too.

Not everyone likes doing this, but I love running Enchantment-based removal in Muldrotha since it can be reused. Many have strong effects but still aren't worth it since they can be removed but Muldrotha gets rid of that drawback! Things like Corrupted Conscience, Inevitable End, Kasmina's Transmutation, Ichthyomorphosis, Lignify, and Lay Claim. I've actually had good luck with things an innocuous as Universal Solvent.

Boza on [Unset] What happens when someone …

As long as you controlled Split Screen as it entered the battlefield, you get its effect. Afterwards, if another player gets Split Screen with Lay Claim - nothing happens - the card did not leave the battlefield. If the card leaves the battlefield while under the control of another player, again, nothing will happen, as the card's current control does not have multiple libraries.

Once again this is speculative silver border land, so take any non-gatherer, non-Maro rules explanations with a grain of salt.

Ok so Split Screen says: When Split Screen enters the battlefield, shuffle your library and deal it into four libraries. If anything refers to your library, choose one of your libraries for it. Play with your libraries' top cards revealed. When Split Screen leaves the battlefield, shuffle your libraries together.

So when Split Screen leaves the battlefield I shuffle my libraries together. And when I have Split Screen I can choose which library to interact with when I need to interact with one (Draw, Search, etc.).

What happens if someone, for sale of example, casts Lay Claim on my Split Screen?

It never leaves the battlefield. But I don't control it.

What library or libraries do I interact with?

Atemsis is very neat. I like the way you organized your list.

You might consider these cards: Coalition Relic (can get Atemsis out on turn 4), Urza's Incubator , Muddle the Mixture (finds either piece of dramatic scepter), Spellseeker (finds Muddle), Rush of Knowledge , Assert Authority , Thoughtcast , Concentrate , Vedalken Mastermind , AEthersnipe , River Serpent , Lay Claim , Striped Riverwinder , Floodwaters , Windcaller Aven , New Perspectives

I can get more in depth 8f you like, but I've found really high CMC cards with cycling work very well, since you can easily get rid of them for other cards. Try Lay Claim , River Serpent and Absorb Vis as examples. I can show you my own yuriko deck too.

DaddysKitten88 on Fuck You Blues

Thank you for all the suggestions. I've ordered a few of the cheaper cards Ponder , Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , and Roil Elemental plus I found Brainstorm , Counterspell , Blue Sun's Zenith , Bident of Thassa and Archaeomancer in my collection. I also have a Darksteel Plate instead of the other two artifacts mentioned by bushido_man96. K1ngMars I'll look for an Aqueous Form . Now to see what to take out. I know I'll take Lay Claim out for sure.
