Fleshbag Marauder is redundancy for Merciless Executioner. I think you get rid of the "discard a card, or x player discards two cards for larger self mill effects. Dredge cards are realllyyyyy good here Stinkweed Imp. Fetch lands are also super awesome in this kind of deck. I know the regular fetches are super expensive, so check out the "Mirage Fetchlands"

Merciless Executioner needs his dead twin Fleshbag Marauder. Crystal Vein is a good land here (don't overuse it, it causes you to miss land drops). Elephant Grass is great for keeping the hate Muldrotha generates off your back. This last card I've been having great results out of here, Bear Umbra. The land untap is great and totem armor has saved my butt a few times.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, upvotes, and ideas on any of my lists is appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite

ZendikariWol I have previously used Fauna Shaman, Merciless Executioner, and Strionic Resonator, but I removed them to keep on the side for redundancy if necessary. This is a low CMC combo deck and the cards you have suggested don't necessarily help me win in any way; Dark Confidant is fine with such low CMCS and I ramp with elves and am not focused on lands. I also do not generally have problems reanimating what I want when I want it, and I can kill very fast if left unchecked, even on a few lands. However, thank you for the suggestions! I am always open to hearing what others like to use in their builds. Meren is personally my favorite commander and my favorite kind of deck to play.

So 1) I have to give props to a good ol' queen reference. 2) your deck is markedly more tier than mine so I won't drop the list, there are a few cards in it you could use. Viridian Emissary is great ramp, Primal Druid isn't bad. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is freaking amazing. Treasure Keeper is, at very least, worth considering. Merciless Executioner is pretty goo. Body Snatcher would support the reanimation subtheme. Solemn Simulacrum is legendary, and Noxious Gearhulk is great late-game removals. Gotta come back from those Dark Confidant uses somehow. Thragtusk is pretty gold and Wurmcoil Engine is also quite fantastic. Fauna Shaman is a necessity and Strionic Resonator is pretty great.

Warrior Creatures to Consider:

Non-Warrior Creatures:

Equipment to Consider:

Artifacts to Consider:



  • Vandalblast
  • Rout
  • Chandra's Ignition -really great boardwipe for this deck, if zurgo has lifelink you will get that life and also anything that dies will give him counters. You could have zurgo, cast this, and then more than likely one shot a player
  • Read the Bones
  • Open the Armory
  • Disrupt Decorum tapped out won't link this for some reason

Instants: (sticking with four or less Cmc for sunforger shenanigans)



Mardu is great for control, so its best to have plenty of removal spells. I would not have Spinerock Knoll since it might be too slow. Windbrisk Heights might be better than Spinerock tho. Like what if you need to play that spell but can't get 7 damage off. Also, Graveblade Marauder seems too situational to leave an impact. When you start adding/removal stuff to the deck, make sure to keep it low cmc as you can since you don't have much in terms of ramp in these colors; be sure to keep as mana rocks as you can for the same reason.

This looks like a pretty fun deck, I rather like Gonti ETB as a theme.

I would definitely take Rune-Scarred Demon and Sepulchral Primordial off the maybe list and into the deck. They are some of the strongest ETBs around and are definitely perfect for this deck.

Other interesting ETBs to consider:

Creature control:Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Abyssal Gatekeeper, Slum Reaper: If your playgroup likes their indestructible/hexproof stuff. I would not run all of course but pick your favorite.

Revival:Puppeteer Clique, Entomber Exarch, GravediggerClique is one of my favorite creatures period, really handy to have. Exarch offers options on ETB and Gravedigger is a classic but his relatively low cost can be really nice.

Card Draw:Phyrexian Rager, Phyrexian GargantuaThough they can deal a bit of damage to you but Black does not really care about that these critters can refill your hand nicely.

Other:Netherborn Phalanx: For both playing and tutoring. Can really hurt with a Panharmonicon in play.

Last_Laugh on Any seats left on the bandwagon?

Not a bad start but I do have a few suggestions for you.

First, lands. Crystal Vein, Strip Mine, and Cephalid Coliseum are all good lands here. I'd also work on getting Verdant Catacombs or running off color fetches to take advantage of Muldrotha's built in Crucible of Worlds.

Next, artifacts/enchantments. Lotus Petal, Altar of Dementia, Secrets of the Dead, Survival of the Fittest (available in gold border for MUCH cheaper), Rhystic Study, Elephant Grass, and Bear Umbra.

Creatures. Maybe Merciless Executioner, Fierce Empath, Shriekmaw, Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Grave-Troll and Spore Frog.
