Sure! I dont have a particular decklist in mind, but heres some staples I can think of

  1. You might be running too few ramp spells which is why the deck feels slow. Without infinite combo wins it's hard to play Sultai. You could try MLD-ish strategies like Natural Affinity into Massacre Wurm or Living Plane into Doomwake Giant. Maybe lock opponents out with Notion Thief and Teferi's Puzzle Box or other wheels (which are great for Muldrotha anyway). You might need to cut some of the smaller value creatures and cards for bigger, more impactful ones like Sepulchral Primordial.

  2. Toxic Deluge and Damnation are both good. Phyrexian Scriptures is tempting as an additional Nevinyrral's that doesn't kill Muldrotha. Profaner of the Dead might be helpful as a lock. You should have a Force of Will and Pact of Negation for the Rite of Replication.

  3. Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur makes for a great reanimation target. If you're having trouble with creatures, recurring Merciless Executioner and Fleshbag Marauder could help. This is a good chance to get in Sidisi and more ramp.

First of all thank you for all the advice. About Diplomatic Immunity, I still want to be able to play auras on him from my hand, so I'm sorry, but I think I'll stick with Curator's Ward. Next Pact of Negation I'm no using only because of all my land destruction. Paying the five will become very hard. Thirdly, I'm confused about why Void Shatter is better, is devoid that good? Yes I'll replace Essence Scatter with Render Silent

sabman: Add more lands that enter untapped and that can produce any color like City of Brass.

Id also recommend higher end counter spells like Mana Drain, Force of Will, and Pact of Negation.

Defense Grid could be all right given how cheap it is. I'm also kind of toying with the idea of adding in things like Wheel of Fortune or Windfall for hand refills on the storm turn, I'm just not sure where they slot in.

If I were to include 0 cost counters it'd pretty much just be Pact of Negation, since you don't often have a blue card to pitch to Force of Will.

Removal/Protection is quite the dilemma for this deck. Cabal Therapy is currently the only piece as it can be used from the hand or graveyard, but I agree that Pact of Negation will help tremendously. Question is, where would you recommend placing it?

I think an argument can also be made for Chancellor of the Annex as well.

I've seen some versions of Oops, All Spells run 4x Pact of Negation and 4x Chancellor of the Annex in place of Gitaxian Probe and Street Wraith.

you ever thought about Pact of Negation incase of opponents having Force of Will or something stupid?

Thanks for taking the time to offer your advice Scarface! I run both Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots but you're right to notice I don't have any counterspells and I think it's a great suggestion! If I might pick your brain a bit more, what counterspells do you think are the most 5-color and budget friendly? Obviously Counterspell is very well costed, but the double blue can be annoying to leave up, especially right after casting my commander, who has a blue Mana requirement. On the same note, spells like Pact of Negation and Force of Will are easy to pay for, but are a bit pricey. Let me know what you think!
