chadjshonk on Jarad : No Rest for the Restless

2 weeks ago

Zachmarshall91 Out of ten? Maybe a 7.5 or 8 in a high-end casual meta? Compared to Tier One CEDH... no clue. It certainly isn't a fast deck, but it is competitive in a good four-player game. It plays for the mid-game as you use your utility creatures to ramp and play a little control while filling your graveyard. When you win with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord's ability, though, it seems to come out of nowhere. It doesn't take too many sacrifices to end the game.

This build is suited for my playgroup, where we want the games to go on at least 30 minutes and no one really goes infinite. But it is very good in that type of long game meta.

You can kind of draw the entire deck with Greater Good and Deathrender, setting up a great Living Death or I've been thinking about putting in a Poison-Tip Archer or Zulaport Cutthroat.

If you want to kick it up a notch I would drop some of the cute cards like Kessig Cagebreakers, World Shaper, and Bane of the Living for perhaps some Grave Pact effects, a Hermit Druid (with the appropriate adjustment of the mana base), some Protean Hulk combos (like Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Walking Ballista) and a Necrotic Ooze plan. I also cut Lord of Extinction because I won like 8 straight games with it but I would put that in the deck too if I was tuning it up.

I love the deck. It wins a lot. But it really depends on how insane your meta is. My deck will not be going off turn 4. It wants to win turn 15 or later. But there are ways to spike it up.

Thanks for the comment.

i run a meren deck and i love it got a few idea's for ya i'll start with creatures Blood Artist why not get some hit points in when you sac or die along with Bontu the Glorified, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Mycloth, Necroplasm helps controll, Nyx Weaver helps feed your grave yard which is your tool box, Rune-Scarred Demon, Tarmogoyf, Xathrid Demon, Brawn, Mortivore, Lord of Extinction, Grisly Salvage is good for feeding your graveyard, Putrefy, Dictate of Erebos, Deathreap Ritual, Small Pox, Pox,Westvale Abbey  Flip and i really think that these last 2 are key Mesmeric Orb, Smokestack. just some thoughts my meren functions really well and is around where your looking to be in your meta give it a look over Gravedigger

I'll give those cards a cut and see how it goes. The Consuming Aberration is a budget Lord of Extinction, hopefully i can trade for one or it gets a reprint!

eleventhend on Muldrotha EDH Mill/Value

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):


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.

arcorak: Yes, Lord of Extinction's P/T will be equal to the total number of cards in all graveyards even when it's in the graveyard. It's the difference between */* and a 0/0 creature with an ability which makes it bigger/entering with counters.

Just as a reminder, while Realm Seekers can fetch any land, it's not actually ramp (I want to clear that up from your original statement). It ensures an influx of lands to hand to consistently hit land drops, however it does not actually accelerate the deck. just worth keeping in mind.

Ok, thank you so much for the replies !

But when you say that it's a 0/0 in the graveyard, how does it matter, exactly ? I mean, if I copy the card (not just for the F/T), the Mimeoplasm enters the battlefield with the counters since I copy the Realm Seekers, do we agree ? ^^ I understand that if wasn't a 0/0 in the yard, it would be so much better since we could copy an evasion creature with the force of the Realm Seekers... But is it """just""" because of that ?

Don't get me wrong, I understand too that it's not THE BiS card in Mimeoplasm Decks, but I try to build with what I have xD And I was surprised not to see it played/mentioned in low cost decks as a big beater ^^ (I mean, if you play in v4 and everybody has 5 cards, it's still a 20/20)

And btw, just to be sure : cards like Lord of Extinction keep their F/T values even in graveyards ?

Thanks again for your help, guys !

For one mana less, you get Lord of Extinction and Consuming Aberration, both which will be bigger than the Seekers. Second, The 'Plasm will see that it's a 0/0, so no counters. Were it a /, on the other hand...it'd have a chance, but not much of one.
