Muldrotha, the Gravetide Discussion

Last_Laugh on Choosing a new Commander

One good path for building decks (assuming you don't mind sharing cards or proxying the 2nd copy) is to share as many colors as possible. This makes building new decks a lot less expensive and eventually you have all your colors covered for different strategies and can build just about anything with minimal purchases. I.e. you run Marchesa, so something like Animar, Soul of Elements , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Queen Marchesa , etc.

My first 3 EDH decks all shared Izzet colors and it made things much easier on my wallet. Narset, Enlightened Master , Marchesa, the Black Rose , and Animar.

Well atraxa is 4 colors, not 5. But if you want to stay in just sultai... Muldrotha, the Gravetide and The Mimeoplasm seem to be the best bets

I am thinking of dropping the red and making Muldrotha, the Gravetide as the commander

Actually, just got more stuff to add:

  1. What do you think is the better CMDR: Najeela, the Blade-Blossom , or Niv-Mizzet Reborn ? Both already seem really badass on their own.

  2. Flux Channeler , Evolution Sage (Combine her w/ Crucible of Worlds .), even Ignite the Beacon seem really good here; but what are your thoughts on them?

  3. I didn't think Dream Halls is good here. Your thoughts on this? It seems to be a staple here in Niv-Mizzet Reborn , but what about Najeela, the Blade-Blossom ? I'd like to use Muldrotha, the Gravetide here. XP

  4. There is no 4. That's all I can think of...

Now the 20Q ends here for now. Any opinions on this, SP3CTR3_chelts?

Also, I think some number of the following pairings will be the best:

Kess, Dissident Mage + Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain

Muldrotha, the Gravetide + Kess, Dissident Mage

Captain Sisay (All-in-combo) + some Blue commander with White or green in it that can run a ton of counterspells to protect Sisay., Like Ith, with Silence , Counterspell , etc.

Brago, King Eternal + Edric, Spymaster of Trest

Kogarashi on Does this combo work?

Let's see if I've got your initial plan right.

Assuming Thousand-Year Elixir is on the battlefield, allowing you to activate creature abilities the turn they ETB.

  1. Activate Selvala, Heart of the Wilds for some number of mana equal to the greatest power you have on the board (if with Muldrotha, that'd be 6). Or use Krosan Restorer to untap 1 or 3 lands (depending on if you have threshold), where at least one of those lands taps for more than 1 mana.

  2. Activate Ashnod's Altar , sacrificing Selvala or Restorer. Gain , trigger Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip to flip.

  3. Activate Liliana, Defiant Necromancer 's -X ability, targeting your newly-dead mana creature. Here's the first hangup. The -X ability says "nonlegendary creature card," and Selvala is legendary, so she can't work in this interaction. So it has to be Restorer. This activation puts Liliana in the graveyard due to lack of loyalty.

  4. You didn't mention it, but presumably you activate Krosan Restorer again for mana, then sacrifice it to Ashnod's Altar for 2 more. I'm ignoring Selvala now because Liliana can't get her back.

  5. Cast Animate Dead or Necromancy on a clone creature and have it copy Muldrotha, the Gravetide , forcing you to sacrifice one due to the legend rule. You keep the clone and send the original Muldrotha to the graveyard.

  6. Using Muldrotha, the Gravetide 's ability, you cast Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip from the graveyard. Then you cast a second Animate Dead or Necromancy (because the first is still enchanting your Muldrotha clone), getting the original Muldrotha back from the graveyard, triggering the legend rule again, which flips Liliana again. You keep the original Muldrotha to "reset" the "one permanent of each type" restriction.

  7. You -X Liliana to get Restorer back, putting Liliana back in the graveyard. Go to step 4, alternating Muldrotha and clone as necessary.

Am I reading this right?

In order for this to work, you can't use Selvala, Heart of the Wilds because it's legendary and Liliana, Defiant Necromancer specifically targets nonlegendary creature cards. For Krosan Restorer to be a good fit, you'll probably want to be at threshold (to hit three lands instead of one), and you'll want those lands to produce lots of mana, like the Gaea's Cradle and Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun you mentioned later, with enough creatures to make it functional.

With so many moving parts, it runs the risk of being extremely easy to disrupt if your opponents have answers, but as far as I can see it functions aside from Selvala being a bad fit, assuming your lands are producing enough mana (and it should be mentioned that the aforementioned choice lands only produce green mana; you're going to need lots of black as well because Liliana and Animate/Necromancy is going to be alone, with a fourth if you have to cast both enchantments before you can get mana on the loop again.
