RoarMaster on Teneb vs Meren vs Muldrotha

ZendikariWol Thanks man, Im glad you liked the build. :) Generally you ramp/remove/draw early game, and then once Mul hits you lock down players with tons of removal while gaining incremental advantage by recurring small stuff with free mana. So far the deck has a pretty good track record, but it could probably use a few more win-cons, as 3/4 times I win with Lab Man via Primal Surge, Mesmeric Orb, or Hermit Druid.

"I would still say that Karador is just as good a commander, due to the tighter synergies..."

I still have to disagree with this. They both have an identical recursion ability, so Karador cannot have "Tighter Synergies" than Muldrotha. Being stuck with only using creatures doesnt make for tighter synergies, just more restrictions. If you wanted to you could run Muldrotha with just the intention of recurring creatures like Karador, and she would be just as 'tight' on synergies as Karador would be.

Ya Karador is Azban, but what does white bring to the table that cant be done just as well in Sultai? Nothing much I can think of. White has recusrion creatures, but black has recursion enchantments for cheaper. IMHO, just the land plays from grave makes Muldrotha superior to Karador, never mind the artifact/enchant/planeswalkers she also hits.

"Guess like most things in Magic, it's just a matter of preference."

Yep, thats what we love about the game :D

How about adding The Scarab God to your deck? Since your running mill, this card would greatly increase the versatility of your deck. Also, if you can afford it, Mesmeric Orb is insane for milling decks. Be warned though... you may become a target in multiplayer for playing it. Most people find it annoying but since my commander is Scarab God, naturally I just steal whatever they mill. Lol

I saw your comment on a muldrotha deck. I am fond if my sidisi build Sidisi's Milkshake and hope that there are some useful cards you hadn't thought of. I cut dredge for etb effects and recursion. I have found Path of Discovery + Cream of the Crop to be a fun loop. I also just built in Daedalus19876's Basalt Monolith + Mesmeric Orb combo in, I haven't seen it yet but it looks promising.

Hey Kaiza,

I really like Sidisi and the way you use her as a Zombiedeck. But how are your experiences about your manabase. I would recommend to add some kind of ramp or basically fixing. Sidisi give the opportunity of using your graveyard, with Crucible of Worlds, Splendid Reclamation, Krosan Restorer or World Shaper On the other hand you can take use of classic ramp with green like Explosive Vegetation, Farseek or Chromatic Lantern. And I really can recommend Mesmeric Orb, in my opinion the strongest card for Sidisi.

But in general I like the zombie theme a lot!

Torpor Orb, Hushwing Gryff, and Tocatli Honor Guard will shut off the enter trigger. Rootborn Defenses and Avacyn, Angel of Hope will protect your stuff. Mesmeric Orb might also give him a headache but I'd recommend one of the others cards first. You could also just convince the table to gang up on him and try to take him out of the game before he can cast zacama. Probably won't be a lot of fun for him though.

Daedalus19876 deserves an honorable mention because of the Basalt Monolith and Mesmeric Orb combo. Thanks again for the solid build

Hi There,

The core of the deck looks pretty good, but I have a few changes that I would make. For a deck like this you'll want way more ramp. Try to hit 8-10 pieces of ramp, and since your mono color I also recommend the doublers in Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power. But you should include some combination of things like Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Mind Stone Commander's Sphere for the sun titan interaction.

I would cut Codex Shredder, and Sands of Delirium and I'm a maybe on Perpetual Timepiece. You already have altar of dementia which will vastly out perform those cards. If you are interested in self mill Mesmeric Orb is ridiculous but expensive. Memory Jar is also solid in a deck like this, but again probably out of budget. I would also cut Mind's Eye its really only good in decks that don't tap out to play creatures in their main phase.

Mask of Memory is a nice way to get some card draw especially with the fliers. Endless Atlas is a nice way to get some card draw. Since you are running all of the find land cards (which are great) things like Azor's Gateway  Flip and Scroll Rack are really good with those. But again those are pricey. Ive been experimenting with Treasure Map  Flip for additional card verdict yet. Oh Thaumatic Compass  Flip is sweet, it helps you make land drops and turns into ramp/protection when it flips over.

Id also like to see some additional removal in mono white I like to be at least 5 board wipes. You can pick the ones that best suit your needs. You'll also want Return to Dust and/or Crush Contraband.

I would cut always watching and add Odric, Lunarch Marshal in its place. 1 more mana for a lot more abilities.

hope this helps!

I approve. I just post decks based on what I have, and I don't have Mesmeric Orb.
