Delta-117 on Muldrotha.. oh wait, counters?

1 day ago

Primal Surge perhaps? Also regardless if you care or not about a graveyard theme, I think these cards are good on their own but even better with Muldrotha:Whiptongue Hydra, Constant Mists,Mishra's Bauble, and Executioner's Capsule.

But all around good cards for your counter theme would be Kalonian Hydra, Herald of Secret Streams, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Novijen, Heart of Progress, and Hungering Hydra.

I like that you chose a different take on Muldrotha, in fact a +1/+1 counters deck was my first edh deck 3 years ago starting with Vorel of the Hull Clade, but then came along Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and it should go without saying that I obviously changed up the deck.

Raphiezar I've added Primal Surge to the maybeboard, although I'm not sure whether or not I'm going to include it as I've already got a Muldrotha, the Gravetide EDH deck that wins through Primal Surge, Laboratory Maniac, and any number of ETB draw creatures like Mulldrifter to dump the deck and win the game and I've got a particular thing against having multiple of the same alternate win conditions...

Thanks anyway for your feedback, it's much appreciated!

Since your deck is already built to use it, as you have no instant or sorcery cards in here, Primal Surge would dump your deck onto the battlefield.

Finally managed to concoct a Windgrace deck blending together most of the other lands-matter legendaries. This is a land sacrifice, recursion, discard, bounce, and animation engine with lots of ways to get infinite landfall, like Sporemound with Life and Limb, Drownyard Temple with Stone-Seeder Hierophant, Mirrorpool with Titania and Amulet of Vigor, Nim Deathmantle to sacrifice animated lands, or Cloudstone Curio to keep replaying and reusing Lord Windgrace and Nissa, Worldwaker. Of course, the classic Dakmor Salvage infinite discards with Gitrog is included, with Borborygmos Enraged as a discard outlet for infinite damage. It's also an all permanents version for Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire and Primal Surge.

Inferno323 I had considered the fact that milling myself might be a problem, but I don’t foresee Prime Speaker Zegana and Primal Surge as being the problem. I was never going to lay my whole deck onto the battlefield. I could see one of my opponents sitting and watching as I laugh through my whole deck, laying over 30 creatures onto the battlefield. Then with the flick of the wrist, Damnation. Sure I would have a few survive, but not enough to merit drawing my whole deck. Luckily Primal Surge says “may”.

Thanks for the input though. I am certainly not the best, and on most occasions, situations that are bad like that go under my radar. This just so happened to be one I had already thought of.

You might want a Laboratory Maniac so Prime Speaker Zegana doesn't kill you when you resolve Primal Surge. Love the card, but always gotta be certain you can win after resolving it if it's your only nonpermanent card.

Here's a Lord Windgrace deck that also features ALL the other lands-matter commanders in Jund. This deck is full of creative ways to increase landfall or just straight up get infinite landfall or infinite Dakmor Salvage discard to Borborygmos Enraged with The Gitrog Monster. Titania, Protector of Argoth and Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper get really happy when animated lands die, like from infinite Nim Deathmantle sacrifices. It's also a Primal Surge deck with Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire because why not. It's done some really crazy things in playtests so far, but I'm not an experienced lands player, so do share any suggestions for the archetype, especially lands to include.
