Murkfiend Liege Discussion

DrukenReaps on Trying to find a commander.

enpc I'll admit that Kruphix, God of Horizons doesn't seem particularly exciting but you get this constant stream of mana building up turn after turn until you have enough to go and play all the things. Just all the value you get out of storing extra mana is ridiculous. He really begs for some expensive cards though like Seedborn Muse. Some other options are cheaper like Murkfiend Liege and Patron of the Orochi. It is really too bad Prophet of Kruphix is banned or it could be included as another untapper.

Endaarr on Kruphix - Got my Deck in Hand

@DerGeldSchein Appreciate the feedback!

Yeah Prophet of Kruphix is the nuts, but I doubt my playgroup would be happy with the argument that "well its casual anyway so the banlist doesn't matter" :/ I could see running it if the rest of the decks at the table where significantly stronger than mine, but that is not the case for now. But yeah if I was running Prophet, Momir would be pretty strong for tutoring it out. My problem with Momir in the deck as it is right now, is that there is nothing particularly strong like a combo to tutor for, except Kiora's Follower + Murkfiend Liege, which is only great if you have Doubling Cube. And once the deck has gone off, he becomes kinda useless. That plus his susceptability to removal and 5cmc make me hesitate to add him to the deck.

Kumena is pretty nuts. Path of Discovery, Merrow Commerce, Deeproot Waters, Murkfiend Liege, Wake Thrasher, and Intruder Alarm all work together a little too well. The deck easily switches between combo and aggro strategies.

Tishana, Voice of Thunder is really nice too.

I'm gonna throw some ideas that may be useful just in case one of them sticks.

Viridian Joiner, Gyre Sage, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds tap for mana depending on power or +1/+1 counters, they easily go infinite with your Umbral Mantle. Other alternatives Staff of Domination and Sword of the Paruns.

Gilder Bairn a second mini Vorel that actually works on Planewalkers.

Minamo, School at Water's Edge perfect for Vorel, but a bit pricy.

Grimoire of the Dead, Lux Cannon, Stupid but funny artifacts with counters to double with Vorel.

Power Conduit Move around and transform counters.

Maybe you need more untaps Murkfiend Liege, Quest for Renewal for creatures. Awakening almost a Seedborn Muse but for everybody.

Jace's Archivist

Nature's Lore

World Breaker


Mwonvuli Acid-Moss

Woodfall Primus

Maybe some other red land hate or something, for pesky lands

Maybe Ramunap Excavator if you keep wheels, it works with things like Azusa and Oracle of Mul-Daya

Third Recommended:

Keranos, God of Storms

Card draw (if you don't want wheels, but wheels are also fine)



Recurring Insight

Blue Sun's Zenith

Fact or Fiction

Maybe a few board wipes like Crux of Fate

or Damnation

Poooosssible cuts include


Azusa, Lost but Seeking

Temple of the False God

Murkfiend Liege and Quest for Renewal seem like auto-includes for this guy for even more tap shenanigans.

Definitely consider Lord of Atlantis since most other players won't have merfolk. Not quite sure about Crab Umbra and Night Soil. Bear Umbra and Druids' Repository could be good alternatives that help the mana. Symbiotic Deployment is an unusual one you can consider that works really well with Merrow Commerce and Murkfiend Liege.
