Nature’s Revenge


At the beginning of each players upkeep that player may pay [a cumulative upkeep cost of for each artifact or enchantment they control if they do not pay that mana they sacrifice that artifact or enchantment.

Did I do good?

Make a card that sounds like the name to a metal album Hard mode: NO Damnation in its name, and no Death in its name an example is Rise from the Grave, doesn’t that name just shout metal album name?

So to take full advantage of Muldrotha, you need to STACK your deck with self mill and reanimate cards (in case Muldrotha isn't in play). I made a Sidisi, Brood Tyrant zombie reanimate deck (Sidisi's Zombies) if you want to check it out. Here are some that may help you: Paranoid Delusions, Apocalypse Demon, Avatar of Woe, Champion of Stray Souls, Havengul Lich, Pharika's Mender, Taigam, Sidisi's Hand, Jarad's Orders, Rise from the Grave, Vigor Mortis, Grim Return, Fated Return, Sultai Ascendancy, Deadbridge Chant, Svogthos, the Restless Tomb.

Hope you find this helpful!

Yes I've built it several times. It's fun. But you need lots of mana for it to be fun. It's a tier 3 CMDR at best. You'll need lots of good ramp. Like mana doublers. Caged Sun, and Extraplanar Lens. You need to focus on what black does best when considering mana ramp. Cabal Coffers, Magus of the Coffers, Nirkana Revenant, and Crypt Ghast. utilize the fact that you'll be mono black so cards like. Nightmare Lash, Lashwrithe, and Strata Scythe. You need big finishers that use big mana. Exsanguinate, and Torment of Hailfire. You'll want to try to have a few ways to stay in control early. Royal Assassin creatures, and some deathtouch creatures. You'll be killing selected creatures so Mimic Vat it good here. You want to make your CMDR more effective, so you'll want Illusionist's Bracers, and Rings of Brighthearth to copy Kalitas's effect throw in Basalt Monolith to make infinite colorless mana when paired up with the Rings of Brighthearth. You'll want to have Grave Betrayal as well this pairs up well with Kalitas. You are gonna need Command Beacon because if and when Kalitas dies. It will be hard recasting her after she dies 1 or 2 times. And you can do a reanimation theme as well where you can pick from graves at will with cards like Animate Dead, Rise from the Grave, Rise of the Dark Realms, and Fated Return. You'll need your basic edh packages. The Worn Powerstone, Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Burnished Hart, Gilded Lotus ramp package. About 4 board wipes. Decree of Pain, Archfiend of Depravity, Black Sun's Zenith, Mutilate. You'll need some other targeted removal and control. Withering Boon to stop etb effects that might threaten you, Imp's Mischief to redirect targeted spells. Sadistic Sacrament for the combo decks. And Praetor's Grasp for the same, or use it to grab a mana rock. Then throw in some strong combos that mono black does well. Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension or Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond. Along with a few other good ones. And some one shot heavy hitters. Like Sorin Markov, Tree of Perdition, and Blood Tribute. Follow the guidelines and you'll have a solid deck.

Why would you play Rise from the Grave and not a full playset of Unburial Rites when these are strictly better?

HangDoll on What mechanics should return for ...

So even at 3x, Boomerang would still be a Upheaval at instant speed which is banned from the format. I personally feel that giving everything overload would be a bad idea. I'd like to just see the mechanic on new cards without having a card give it to everything. Overload isn't really a safe mechanic to just hand out to everything.

An overloaded Rise from the Grave would be fun to use. Normally reanimates a creature but overload you get each creature and they're all zombies. Zombie decks would enjoy that.

Personally, I want Overload Duress and or Blightning. Those types of cards that tend to do poorly in our format as opposed to spells that do really well.

By the sounds of it, you want some pure reanimation to get the most out of your commander. Victimize, Rise from the Grave, Necromantic Summons, and Debtors' Knell would help fit the bill.

Dredge is great for graveyard fun. Dont forget about reanimator stuff too like Rise from the Grave to bring back scary stuff like Doomgape. Delirium works well too.
