ThePman but Spellbook, Anvil of Bogardan, Graceful Adept, Praetor's Counsel, and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage don't have a spot here or in the maybeboard, yet fit that description.

jessniem on Budget Muldrotha - advice

1 month ago

This deck will be more fun to play with more ramp. You want to be able to play Muldrotha and other expensive spells. Prefereble several per turn. Solemn Simulacrum is both ramp/card draw and creature/artifact, which is good. Since Muldrotha will be hated it's nice to have Praetor's Counsel too use when you're graveyard is getting big.

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.

You have not thought about adding Omnath, Locus of Mana to your deck, so that you can absorb the large amount of mana you produce after having Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Patron of the Orochi in play, or the one you are given by spells like Vernal Bloom or Zendikar Resurgent. You also have a good option to include Genesis or Colfenor's Urn to recover creatures without having to use Praetor's Counsel.

Hi, so I see what you are trying to do here but I think you went to all in on destroying lands. What I mean by this is there are too many Stone Rain effects, not enough ways for your deck to operate. For a deck like this to win you need to be able to draw a lot of cards and sustain your own game. A lot of the times a deck like this will draw a lot of aggression on a table, so you need to be able to protect your self and make the most out of a low land count and a lot of enemy's. Dingus Egg can help you actually kill players instead of just annoying them,Jokulhaups will neuter the table, but keep your "do stuff" enchantment and planeswalkers alive. These cards are a little protection for you Polluted Bonds,Ankh of Mishra,Crawlspace,Price of Glory,No Mercy,Burning Sands,Smoke, Tainted AEther, Rain of Gore, War's Toll. You also need more card draw so Necropotence, Underworld Connections, Greed, Phyrexian Arena,Erebos, God of the Dead, Solemn Simulacrum,Yavimaya Elder,and Memory Jar are good inclusions. Some other just good cards for you are Thaumatic Compass  Flip,Borborygmos Enraged, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar,Creeping Renaissance, Praetor's Counsel,Burgeoning,Tilling Treefolk,Krosan Tusker,World Shaper,Constant Mists,Tempt with Discovery,Horn of Greed,Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire. There are a lot more cards that would make this deck much more explosive and be more punishing. I would go on EDHREC.com and look at the commonly used cards of Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire,The Gitrog Monster,Mogis, God of Slaughter and Borborygmos Enraged to focus your list.

What about Archetype of Endurance for more creature protection and another Enchantment, cutting Praetor's Counsel which has been a dead card some of the times I draw it?

I feel you need a couple more big things. A Stormsurge Kraken is cheap and effective and works great with zegana, drawing a bunch of cards on curve. Stormtide Leviathan is big and scary and cheap and counters ground creatures. In terms of no max hand size Praetor's Counsel is your go-to card - not only do you rebuy your counters, you do not have to discard them. Also there is a colorless mana rock that gave you no max hand size, but the name eludes me.

A big upgrade would be something to allow you to flash in stuff, at least creatures. Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Leyline of Anticipation, etc.

You can easily cut unimpactful stuff like high tide and paradoxical outcome.
