Murkfiend Liege Discussion

Thorbogl on Why use your hand if you got a library?

Thanks for the kind words

To your suggestions: Garruk's Horde is a powerhouse but Vizier of the Menagerie seems to be better due to lower mana cost and the not revealed information as the card is not revealed.

Soul of the Harvest seems pretty decent too but I intent to go for Prime Speaker Zegana instead, as she refills the hand immediatly and gets additional benefits from Murkfiend Liege.Maybe even a Azami, Lady of Scrolls since a lot of the creatures are wizards and untap all the time.

For the other to I see the problem that they are nether creatures or lands, wich on top are not that nice.Im regulary getting slowed down by a Utopia Sprawl on top I cannot cast but its a necessery deal I have to make if I want turn 2 4 mana.

Thanks for the suggestion tho, really appreciated

I also built an Ezuri deck The Flurry of Ezuri, so I auto-love this deck. Now the way I built him was I had next to zero creatures that had a power more than 2, except for Murkfiend Liege, Avenger of Zendikar and Triskelion (the counters on him count towards his power/toughness). And Prime Speaker Zegana too sometimes. Everything else was focused on getting those experience counters.

I Love Hornet Queen in this deck, wow! It triggers 5 times?? Good lord.

Love the deck, wish you luck, +1

I like how this is turning out. You actually have so much left over budget you could use to improve the anthems and removal. Thunderfoot Baloth and Murkfiend Liege come to mind. Also you might have missed Siren Stormtamer (it'll drop) and Favorable Winds

One thing I really don't get is Tanglewalker, I'd argue Wild Beastmaster to be better or Champion of Lambholt if you have the budget

Teufell, going all in on control, and allowing non-slivers into the deck? Gotcha. In that case, since Prophet of Kruphix is banned, why not go with Seedborn Muse? Or if you're on a budget, try Murkfiend Liege. I'd also consider Cryptolith Rite, as it'll provide you much needed ramp, and compliments the other two mana ramp slivers already in the deck.

Looks like a pretty sweet deck. One thing I'd recommend is to cut some of the 'ETBs tapped' for opponents stuff. Consistency is cool and all, but Loxodon Gatekeeper, Root Maze, Manglehorn, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and Frozen AEther seems a little excessive. I'm a fan of enchantments, since they're a little harder to remove than creatures. You might want to drop the Loxodon Gatekeeper or Thalia, Heretic Cathar for a Blind Obedience.

Looks like you're also going for locking down the untap step. Have you considered Stasis at all? It has proved to be pretty solid in my deck, so long as I can consistently deal combat damage to have untapped. Also, Mind Over Matter is waaaaay better than the Azorius Guildmage. Pricey, but worth it in my experience. And since you're locking that stuff down, you might want to put some thought into adding a Murkfiend Liege to backup your Seedborn Muse, should it be removed. I could also see the newly printed Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist performing well in your deck.

If you really want to lock combos down though, add in a Gaddock Teeg. Everybody loves it when the ol' Gaddock Teeg slows the game to a grueling crawl.

I think your card draw might also need some work. The last thing you want is to be dead in the water and top decking for answers. Rhystic Study and Bident of Thassa are good, but what makes this deck scary is when your hand is huge--that's what makes your opponents think twice about their plays. I'd recommend a Pull from Tomorrow, Coastal Piracy, Consecrated Sphinx, or at least an Arcanis the Omnipotent to be abused with Derevi, Empyrial Tactician's ability. Add in a Laboratory Maniac and a Mind Over Matter and you have yourself a card draw combo stew.

There's no better way to stop a combo than to simply counter it. I'd consider including a few more counterspells like the OG Counterspell. Disallow is also a solid show-stopper when an opponent thinks they're being clever. Also good for stopping combo engines are Stony Silence, and Null Rod.

It looks like you're relying on a bunch of ETB effects with only Brago, King Eternal and a few reanimators like Eternal Witness and Sun Titan. If you're bent on ETBs, I'd recommend Venser, the Sojourner, and perhaps Conjurer's Closet and of course, the eternally useful Deadeye Navigator, which is good at getting you a lot of mana with either Palinchron or Peregrine Drake (economic option).

Since you're also making things more expensive, have you considered adding in Aura of Silence? Quite good for shutting up opponents. Trinisphere is also effective at making things too costly for the opponents. Lastly, as for dealing with CMC and such, a Void Winnower is pretty good at locking down a great deal of spells. Having a board state with Gaddock Teeg, Trinisphere, Void Winnower, Vryn Wingmare, and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV will give your opponents such a nightmare headache as they try to navigate the actual cost of of a spell.

So it looks like you have a few things that make tokens, but not much else for them. I'd recommend to either go all-in and add in a few more token-makers like Squirrel Nest, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, or Avenger of Zendikar. If you're going that route, I'd suggest Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, or Anointed Procession.

Overall it seems like a really solid deck. Might still need a bit of tweaking, but I like what it's got going on! Also, please don't think I'm trying to tell you how to build your deck, these are only suggestions and ideas to consider! Thanks for sharing!

Steelspike on how would i get started ...

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.
