Lhurgoyf's power is equal to the number of creature cards in all graveyards and its toughness is equal to that number plus 1.

Tortuous Wrinkle

Sorcery

Target creature gets -3/-0 until end of turn.

Switch target creature's power and toughness until end of turn.


Two blue effects, one kill spell.

Create a creature with a variable power and toughness and a variable mana cost. Using X's would technically complete the challenge, but that's too easy--think Lhurgoyf mixed with Khalni Hydra.

I think a better version of Exoskeletal Armor is Wreath of Geists and some same cards that work like Lhurgoyf is Boneyard Wurm, Splinterfright.

TypicalTimmy's challenge:

Lurdagag, Rot-Lurker

Legendary Creature - Lhurgoyf

Deathtouch, Trample

At the beginning of your upkeep put the top 2 cards of your library into your graveyard, you may return a card from your graveyard to your hand.

Gattison's Challenge:

Krenko, Revered Boss

Legendary Planeswalker - Krenko

+1 Create two 1/1 Black, Red, and Green goblin creature token.

-3 Until end of turn whenever you cast a goblin spell you may create a 1/1 black, red, and green goblin creature token.

-10 You get an emblem with "At the beginning of your upkeep create X 1/1 goblin creature tokens, where X is the number of goblins you control"

Krenko, Revered Boss can be your Commander.

==========

I'm pretty happy with how these turn out, especially Krenko. Oh man, if this Krenko was a real card then Goblin tribal just got kinda OP (especially if you get that emblem out).

Anyway, Challenge: Create a new commander/legendary lord for your favorite tribe in magic.

eleventhend on Muldrotha EDH Mill/Value

1 year ago

Couple of notes up front (might just be due to ongoing edits):

  • You have 2 copies of Victory Chimes in the list
  • You only have 96 cards in the list (including the duplicate above) instead of 100

Design Strategy

Want to suggest a couple of deck strategies to consider focusing in on (they are all fairly synergistic but it might help to pick one to focus on to help the deck feel like it has a clearer win condition):

Mill-Value

With your current list of mill-value and beats, the missing pieces only seem to be ways to close the game.

Potential Additions

Discard Group Slug

I think this is a really interesting avenue for Muldrotha: running cards like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Waste Not, Oppression, Mindslicer and Myojin of Night's Reach to clear out your own and opponents' hands while benefiting from Muldrotha and other graveyard recursion effects to allow yourself to keep making plays. It would be a deck unlike any other at our table so far.

Your win conditions could be both mill, using cards like Keening Stone to close, or life-loss with cards like Liliana's Caress and Bloodchief Ascension mixed with some mild creature beats.

Other solid cards that support this archetype:

Graveyard Theft or Pure Recursion

This concept would run recursion spells like Boneyard Parley to steal the best things from opponents graveyards. In this case, Muldrotha allows us to consistently run targeted recursion from our graveyard, and we can focus our deck construction on the grave-robbing package. Because of Muldrotha's ability, we want to focus primarily on "theft on sticks" which we can repeatedly cast as needed, likely leaning heavily into Black.

es0p0s on "Dredge" (Adding words makes people look)

well i see you rely on the delve mechanic to win so how about Heartless Summoning? How about Shambling Shell for a 2nd dredger. Murderous Cut is a reliable removal. Grisly Salvage is a better Commune with the Gods. Tasigur, the Golden Fang is questionable but i believe it is right at home here. Lhurgoyf is a cheap cousin of Tarmogoyf (note: im not really sure if its in the modern card list, so be sure to tell me whats actually right). Putrefy another removal. Eldritch Evolution is just mean with delve creatures though you need some fatties to summon. A new addition is The Mending of Dominaria but that requires proper testing. Also i just remembered Mortivore exists si there's another creature to add. Hope you'll find these useful.

Tasigur, the Golden Fang can help put stuff in the graveyard and get you things. Lotleth Troll can move creatures from hand to graveyard to buff itself at instant speed for cute combat tricks.

Tarmogoyf is required. Just kidding! It'd help, but I know most people aren't made of money. That said, Lhurgoyf can be cut for more of other creatures.

Maybe Satyr Wayfinder or Sakura-Tribe Elder instead of Mulch? Still gets you land, and gives a blocker/adds a creature to the graveyard.

litlamzetiv Thanks so much for your detailed suggestions. I can't believe I had forgotten about Lhurgoyf this whole time. Also, as far as Canal Dredger is concerned, I opted against them only because I couldn't find the card for play online. I knew about the other two you mentioned, but only after reading your comment (I think I'm starting to forget things in my old age.) Once again, thanks for the help, and I'll definitely be taking a look at your deck.

Warhammer39999 on Splinterfright's Something-or-Other

I like the twist on the theme, though I wonder if it's not playing too hard against itself. For example, Gurzigost is counter intuitive to this deck as he plays against the Splinterfright. While you might want to retrieve some items from your graveyard, you may be better off just sticking things there that you're happy putting there.

Abilities that work well with this strategy include: Cycling, discard effects (including Spellshapers, & Grandeur, & Dredge) and effects that also benefit from having things in the graveyard (Threshold and Delirium). Other cards that boost themselves based upon graveyard contents (since you're already B&G, I'd suggest Lhurgoyf, Mortivore, and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord).

I also would tend to eschew non-creature spells, as they don't help pump Splinterfright. For example:

Bow of Nylea (grants deathtouch) -> Archetype of FinalityReito Lantern (fills library) -> Epitaph Golem, Junktroller, or Canal DredgerRing of Kalonia (gives trample) -> Brawn

Those are just some ideas. If you'd like to see what I did with this deck, you can see it here:https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/goyf-1/
