Oracle of Mul Daya Discussion
2 days ago
You're missing the core of a lands deck to play lots of lands with things like Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Exploration, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Oracle of Mul Daya, Storm Cauldron, Wayward Swordtooth, and Burgeoning. Also, recursion from Crucible of Worlds, and more lands that sacrifice. These will be much stronger than the typical ramp cards you are playing like Birds of Paradise and Sylvan Caryatid and Chromatic Lantern.
Rather than all the mana doubling effects that help your opponents, just play Mana Reflection and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger. Mirari and Wort, the Raidmother can help copy spells. You might as well add in some good removal like Decimate, Windgrace's Judgment, and Lavalanche to copy. You might have too many spells that just copy spells though.
I would cut Doubling Season and all the planeswalkers since they don't contribute much to that strategy.

A solid base for a more casual EDH deck. For landfall triggers I would highly recommend Avenger of Zendikar.
Another option to get more landfall triggers in a turn would be to play with Courser of Kruphix or Oracle of Mul Daya, with you searching your deck basicly every turn I can see you getting a lot of value out of those two cards.

Thanks for the suggestions!
I run Dark Confidant in most of my black EDH decks cuz the card draw is always good to have, especially at 2 CMC. I haven't had a major problem with the life loss, though obviously there is a risk of revealing It That Betrays which is a bummer. I will often pay the 8 life to get 2 extra cards from Sylvan Library, so I kinda see Dark Confidant in the same vein. I still definitely think it's good to have, and have never regretted seeing it.
Elvish Spirit Guide has also been getting the job done in testing so far. Fast mana, even if it's a one time thing, is valuable here as the deck definitely benefits from setting up faster. Getting out a turn one Sylvan Library, Lotus Cobra, Dark Confidant, or even just a signet can set me very far ahead.
I agree that Oracle of Mul Daya would be great in the deck, and I will definitely try to fit that in. Courser of Kruphix I'm personally not as high on. She doesn't speed things up much (doesn't really ramp), the life gain isn't super relevant usually, and her top deck manipulation is pretty limited. I'm trying to leave out things that just let me look at the top of my deck. I left out Vizier of the Menagerie for this reason, and I think he's better than Prophet.
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is a very good creature, and I think I would run it in a non Primal Surge variant of Vaevictis. In this one, where the goal is more to win quickly than to control the field, I'm not sure if it would be the best option most of the time. If I were to put it in, I would probably take out Sire Of Insanity since they sort of take up the same slot, but I'm giving the nod to Sire at the moment mostly because I think he's hilarious, especially when it can turn the game into a chaos warp top decking grindfest with Vaevictis on the field (not the best reason I know, but I'm standing by it for now).
I love the idea of Glissa, the Traitor in the deck, and I will definitely test her out. She seems like a great way to bring back the artifacts I end up sacrificing to Vaevictis, and I can see myself trying out some more relevant artifacts to take more advantage of this.

I'm pretty surprised you're using Dark Confidant, he seems risky with some of your high cmc spells and doesn't have a very relevant body for EDH. Elvish Spirit Guide is only really relevant as a one time ramp. I understand that it's as fast as it could possibly be, but I would think the advantage gained by Courser of Kruphix and Oracle of Mul Daya are far superior- Especially when they help you manipulate the top of your deck to hit more relevant spells & still make land drops.
With 35 creatures, I'm surprised you're not running Ruric Thar, the Unbowed.
I could see some good value from Glissa, the Traitor and a cheap artifact whenever Vaevictis triggers.

Nice deck but I do have a few suggestions. First, Mirror-Mad Phantasm which is admittedly some extreme mill but allows you to run a few win-cons like Living Death. I'd also consider Crystal Vein, it can ramp you 4 mana in one turn (more if you run guys like Azusa, Lost but Seeking/Oracle of Mul Daya which are worth it here). Cephalid Coliseum is another land worth considering. Animate Dead needs a spot (better than Necromancy but I'd run both). I'm also very fond of Song of the Dryads for removal here (being able to recur these at will can be back breaking to any deck relying on its commander like Purphoros, Animar, etc.).
Anyways, here's a link to my list. Feedback and/or upvotes on any of my lists is appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite

This deck is nearly perfect, but there's just a few areas of weakness that demand immediate attention.
First off, I would remove the following cards: Abrupt Decay, Angel's Grace, Anguished Unmaking, Animate Dead, Arcane Denial, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Badlands, Bayou, Birds of Paradise, Blood Crypt, Bloodstained Mire, Brainstorm, Breeding Pool, Chromatic Lantern, Chrome Mox, City of Brass, Command Tower, Cultivate, Cyclonic Rift, Dance of the Dead, Deathrite Shaman, Decree of Pain, Delay, Demonic Tutor, Enter the Infinite, Exploration, Farseek, Fellwar Stone, Fist of Suns, Flooded Strand, Godless Shrine, Hallowed Fountain, In Garruk's Wake, Intuition, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Jodah, Archmage Eternal, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Laboratory Maniac, Lotus Cobra, Maelstrom Wanderer, Mana Confluence, Mana Crypt, Marsh Flats, Merciless Eviction, Misty Rainforest, Mox Diamond, Myojin of Night's Reach, Myojin of Seeing Winds, Mystic Remora, Mystical Tutor, Nature's Claim, Nature's Lore, Negate, Omniscience, Oracle of Mul Daya, Overgrown Tomb, Painful Truths, Polluted Delta, Praetor's Counsel, Progenitus, Rhystic Study, Rise of the Dark Realms, Savannah, Scalding Tarn, Scrubland, Sensei's Divining Top, Show and Tell, Skyshroud Claim, Sol Ring, Steam Vents, Stomping Ground, Storm Herd, Survival of the Fittest, Swan Song, Swords to Plowshares, Sylvan Library, Taiga, Tainted Pact, Temple Garden, Terastodon, Three Visits, Time Stretch, Toxic Deluge, Tropical Island, Tundra, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Underground Sea, Vampiric Tutor, Verdant Catacombs, Volcanic Island, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Watery Grave, Windswept Heath, Wooded Foothills, and Zacama, Primal Calamity.
There's really nothing you could replace these cards with that would make this deck competitive, so I'd recommend just stopping here. Good work.

Good on you, that's a big undertaking in modern. Maybe try Lotus Cobra? That card does crazy stuff with extra lands being played. Splashing for red would give you more interaction like Lightning Bolt and Molten Rain effects, and finishers like Banefire, black would be useful for Fatal Push and other effective removal, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and my favorite baby boy The Gitrog Monster. White would give you strong sideboard options, Knight of the Reliquary and Renegade Rallier, with other random creatures that could help lean in a more aggressive direction. Blue tends to be the weakest color to pair with green for stuff like this besides Bring to Light style decks or amulet titan, since it only helps control and draw cards and doesn't really have its own payoffs. I would consider splashing some other color as a way to help close games, Sylvan Awakening is very strong when you have 10+ lands but leaves you vulnerable to something like Terminus, which is seeing more and more play lately. Adding more midrange creatures can help you survive the early game also, things like Tireless Tracker which also counts as card draw, and Courser of Kruphix offers life gain and is sort of a backup Oracle of Mul Daya. You could also consider Wayward Swordtooth as an aggressively costed ramp creature. Something like Hornet Queen and Obstinate Baloth are strong sideboard cards and Summoner's Pact is useful for finding those silver bullet creatures when you really need them. I threw a lot at you, I really like big mana and play titanshift primarily so those are all things I've considered for similar decks to yours. Good luck and happy brewing!
