Ramunap Excavator r is a fantastic card, an extra crucible of worlds on an early blocker never hurts! I would consider cutting a Undergrowth Champion as it doesn’t do much rather than become a big body and the cmc is the same which doesn’t affect your curve at all!

Some general card suggestions I would make would be Courser of Kruphix, for sustain and card advantage, Skyshroud Claim is an effective way to ramp for lands that can come into play untapped, as well as being able to fetch shock lands to fix your colors early game.

I wish I could suggest Seismic Assault, however I play Yidris lands and that includes The Gitrog Monster and Life from the Loam. Loam does help recur fetches and utility lands when there are no Crucible effects on the battlefield at the time but it is only effective if you have a decent amount of ways to dump lands into your graveyard.

Despite that I love seeing People who run Meloku the Clouded Mirror in landfall decks! I think it is a fantastic card for its utility and spice. Another jankier card that I enjoy for fun times is Patron of the Moon, let the good times roll.

Cool deck!

Life from the Loam is amazing in Muldrotha. Also Dakmor Salvage is a good land too.

Another reason I'm okay with 44 lands is because of the self mill I have in the deck, such as Hedron Crab and Ipnu Rivulet. These effects are intended to target myself. With Crucible of Worlds, Ramunap Excavator, or Life from the Loam, I should have an okay time building up a land count in my graveyard and playing my lands from the yard. Triggering Tatyova without needing a massive or consistent land count in my hand.

I see what you mean with running 55 lands, but I'm experimenting with alternative ways to access consistent amounts of land drops without needing such a high land count. We'll see how it works out!

Well since you started with borbor and expanded your colors to grab gitrog I wouldn't even really give the commander a second thought. The deck should revolve around the two of them rather than her.

If you can afford them then Life from the Loam and Crucible of Worlds would be nice. I think the life from the loam will be better for you since it allows you to keep discarding lands to borbor.

I would go heavy on lands, probably no less than ~40 in the deck. Some of the better land fall guys would go in too. Omnath, Locus of Rage for instance.

Being more of a 'hidden' commander deck some search is needed.

That is just some of my general thoughts.

Muldrotha applies to all types of permanents, not just creatures. I'd say instead of running 33 creatures you put a more diversified mix of permanents into the deck; creatures, enchantments (look into sagas such as The Eldest Reborn, also second Pernicious Deed) and cheaper Planeswalkers with good minus-loyalty effects. Life from the Loam would seemingly be a busted engine card in a deck like this. Ditto Hermit Druid. This deck wants cheap plays that can get cards into the graveyard, such as Careful Study and Entomb.

How goes it Lil_Kalki?

I actually had Life from the Loam in here and didn't feel it did enough even with running all 9 fetchlands I can and it having dredge. It's not a card that's out permanently and I put it back in the maybeboard.

Ash Barrens I don't run just due to lack of basics. With 9 fetches and 15 fetchable targets, 9 of which barrens would compete for, it just doesn't work. 1 of those Islands is a placeholder for a utility land but I'm not sure what yet lol... opinions?
