zentay98 I like the idea, and I think Monastery Siege may find its place in the deck. I think I can cut the Howling Mine for it. I'm kind of ashamed I hadn't already thought of it myself. After all, Fate Reforged and Dragons of Tarkir were the first sets I ever drafted. Thanks for both the suggestion and the throwback!

I've been putting together a budget Muldrotha list and my budget constraints have led me to find quite a few amazing cards that pair with Muldrotha.

First off, with all your sacrifice/reanimator affects, using cards that take advantage of those affects will be beneficial. Butcher of Malakir, Dictate of Erebos, and Grave Pact add a lot of control to the deck. Cards like Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner get extra value, as does every one of your sacrifice engines. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest makes these affects even more powerful. Pump up your whole army while picking off theirs or gaining value through sacrifice engines.

Nyx Weaver and Splinterfright are excellent ways to fill your graveyard in addition to what you're already running. Sidisi, Brood Tyrant also helps to fill your graveyard while providing extra value for your self milling in the form of a zombie army.

Executioner's Capsule is excellent repeatable removal that takes up an artifact slot. Very valuable. Tormod's Crypt helps shut down opposing graveyard strategies, over and over for free. Wayfarer's Bauble provides ramp in the artifact slot.

Attrition is an excellent sacrifice engine that is also repeatable removal. False Demise serves as a way to keep your commander on the battleground or take an opponents creature/commander. Font of Fertility provides ramp in the enchantment slot. Heightened Awareness is a great way to draw an extra card every turn for practically free. Monastery Siege provides similar value. Seal of Removal gives repeatable bounce in an enchantment slot. Vessel of Nascency gives repeatable draw and fills your yard in an enchantment slot.

Here's some good value cards I've found in my deck building process: Dawnstrider provides repeatable fogs while not really costing you anything once your commander is out. Hermit Druid fills your yard and provides land consistency. Waterfront Bouncer provides repeatable creature bouncing. Silverglade Pathfinder provides repeatable ramp. Hell's Caretaker provides repeatable reanimation. Coiling Oracle is full of value. Siren Stormtamer helps repeatedly keep your creatures safe. Best part about all of these is that they're easy sacrifice fodder once you no longer need the abilities and they work crazy well with Skullclamp, which is easily the best sacrifice engine you can run in this deck.

I love playing Muldrotha because I feel there are so many ways to play her and they're all viable. Hopefully this helps :)

After reading your description, I thought I would suggest Monastery Siege. Its "Khans" mode could fit the role you want Compulsion, Zephyr Scribe, and Smuggler's Copter to fill, but for free each turn.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh is really good for full board swings especially in big multiplayer EDH. You also might like Genesis Chamber and Myr Battlesphere to make more 1/1 Myrs fast and have a nice beater later on alongside Thopter Assembly. If your deck lends itself to playing even more artifacts you might wanna check out Thopter Spy Network and Efficient Construction.

Looking at Edric decks for ideas, you might want to try running budget extra turn spells to finish off games with full swings like Temporal Trespass, Part the Waterveil, Karn's Temporal Sundering (needs a legend out), and even Timestream Navigator. Down the line you'd probably want Walk the Aeons.

Lastly, some other mono-blue goodies, Fact or Fiction, Abjure, Deprive, Toothy, Imaginary Friend, Dreamscape Artist, Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar, Imprisoned in the Moon, Monastery Siege, and Mystic Remora.

Hi WuzzupPeeps!

Kumena's Awakening is actually really interesting. I had overlooked that card when going through new Ixalan stuff. I have been thinking about cutting my Hondens, and Kumena's Awakening is probably better than Honden of Seeing Winds since it's rare to have both in play. Plus I bet it looks sweet in foil :) I'm going to check this out, thanks for the suggestion.

Unwind doesn't really appeal to me I think. I am pretty lean with my countermagic by choice, so I want the ones I play to be top notch. Right now Swan Song is my only counter that can't hit all spells, and I'm not thinking I want to play a second one.

treasure map seems like it requires a decent amount of setup and not much payoff, especially since I don't have other ways to generate Treasure tokens.

Emeria Shepherd is pretty interesting to think about. My deck does have a lot of ways to get permanents into the gy (since nothing exiles, and I have Monastery Siege, Compulsion, etc. But, I'm wondering if the effect is worth it if I'm not often playing Plains - I only have 4 Basic Plains + Duals. I notice your list has Emeria Shepherd and more Basic Plains to support it, plus off color fetches and stuff like Terrain Generator - how often do you find yourself getting the Plains version of the trigger?

Hey vishnarg,

I am writing a primer for Modern Merfolk and I was wondering if you would be okay with me featuring this deck under my splash options category as a reference to a white splash list. Let me know what you think because this list looks almost exactly what my white splash deck looked like, except I included Harbinger of the Tides in the mainboard and I had Kira, Great Glass-Spinner sideboarded which is a strong alternative to your Monastery Siege. Kopala, Warden of Waves is also a strong newer option as well. I'd like to see ya freshen up this list because it looks really nice!
