Murkfiend Liege Discussion

Steelspike on how would i get started ...

2 weeks ago

36 lands seems to be the magic (pun intended) number for lands in an EDH deck, but not the only source of mana. Rocks like Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, and Chromatic Lantern are pretty much staples.

I don't personally use the cluestones or keyrunes unless I'm playing just the two colors, but that's just me.

On to the actual deckbuilding.

I like to use a single theme/card and build a deck around whatever mechanic said card has. If that theme is in certain colors, there are some things I prefer to use.

Some examples:

Selesnya: Privileged Position + Sterling Grove

Gruul: Familiar Ground + Gruul War Chant

Simic: Murkfiend Liege

Rakdos: Master of Cruelties

Boros: Iroas, God of Victory

Izzet: Mindwrack Liege

Azorius: Azorius Guildmage, Decree of Silence + Solemnity

Unfortunately I believe Primeval Titan is banned in Commander.

Love Kruphix though, always looking for different cards I can play in my own! Mystic Speculation seems super cool, I should try it out.

I think Seedborn Muse is a card you can pick up. It's not likely going to be dropping in price, so if budget is a concern then Murkfiend Liege is also a possible inclusion. Omnath, Locus of Mana is also a great way to store colored mana, which can sometimes be relevant, while providing you with a large body to beat face with. I also feel like there is a significant lack of counterspells in the deck. Forbid is a great card if you can draw a bunch of cards off of conSphinx or something. But at least a Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Muddle the Mixture or even a Mystic Snake. Additionally, Voidslime, Disallow, and Trickbind are also catch-all answers to that can save you in various scenarios.

Creature-wise, I think you could have an Ulvenwald Hydra, Deadeye Navigator, Nylea, God of the Hunt, and Thassa, God of the Sea are also good inclusions.

Aside from Prophet of Kruphix being banned, this is an awesome deck. If you want similar effects, you can go with Seedborn Muse or Murkfiend Liege can at least help with creatures, and if you use Nature's Will that can get your lands involved too. You could also run the new Ramunap Excavator for assistance with your Crucible of Worlds effect.

Me personally, I would add green and go Roon of the Hidden Realm or Derevi, Empyrial Tactician.

There's all kinds of budget options to make either one of those decks nasty.

Presence of Gond with Midnight Guard. More fun with Ivy Lane Denizen

Guilty Conscience + Phytohydra and Pollenbright Wings

or, you could have some real fun with Guilty Conscience and Stuffy Doll (goes infinite, but you must have a c-c-c-c-combo breaker, I prefer Sundial of the Infinite, Deadeye Navigator or some sac engine, or else some rules nazi will tell you it's a draw because the turn never ends, or some shit...)

Then there's always Odric, Lunarch Marshal or Edric, Spymaster of Trest to discourage them attacking you (sadly, Odric requires other creatures with keywords, but hey, Drogskol Reaver is still a thing...)

Plus, you could run your very own Terastodon with the inclusion of green. Also, Manglehorn, Prowling Serpopard, Acidic Slime, Fathom Mage + Inexorable Tide , not to mention Cryptolith Rite + Deadeye Navigator + Village Bell-Ringer , Murkfiend Liege, the list goes on and on...

Thanks, GoldenDiggle. I just saw Murkfiend Liege yesterday and added him to the maybeboard. I like Arcanis the Omnipotent, as well! So hard to figure out what to leave in and what to cut, though!

I like the focus on draw! I seem to always have a lot of cards in my hand when I play Kruphix as well, he is surprisingly strong!

Have you considered Arcanis the Omnipotent in the deck? It works well with Awakening (which I need to add in my own deck) and Murkfiend Liege!

Nice, looks like fun. I like Murkfiend Liege, that would fit nicely in my Kruphix deck, and its not too pricey. Thanks for that!

@Jpegwun The EDH legalities are not working properly on Tappedout. You can find the official banlist here.

If you're looking for a replacement to give flash to your spells, you could run Alchemist's Refuge or Vedalken Orrery. If you want to untap your creatures on your opponents turns, you could consider Murkfiend Liege.
