Scribe of the Mindful Discussion

Gattison on Temur Ramp

Careful Study is a blue Faithless Looting without Flashback. Maybe it could replace Pieces of the Puzzle .

I would test Explore instead of Rampant Growth because shit-ton-draw.

Why not Counterspell or Mana Leak instead of Essence Scatter, that way you can counter whatever you need to, instead of just creatures?

Finally, since you're playing Cole, I would suggest considering Scribe of the Mindful instead of Archaeomancer. In my estimation it's a turn quicker. If you draw it early game, you can put it out a turn sooner as a chump. PLUS, neither creature will typically get you a recurred card until T4 anyway, and with the Scribe, you will have more mana left over to actually cast the card you recur. If you were playing Jim or Anthony, I would say don't bother, but Cole, man, fuck... you need every advantage you can get.

Well if you want to play some play you can recur them easily with Scribe of the Mindful . I also forgot to mention that Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is a must and do pretty much everything you want with this deck. Nevinyrral's Disk is sweet because you will be able to do it again and again, so good choice, but i feel like you could pair it with some sac outlet like Viscera Seer . And since your deck reaaaaaally want your commander to be on the table you should consider adding Journey to Eternity  Flip.

Muldrotha is always fun to play! Here's my list that I've slowly been tuning, always looking out for new cards or other deck ideas. I do need to update it with some of the latest tweaks I've made, but always helps to compare to see what other people are brewing! Muldrotha List

One card I have really liked is Scribe of the Mindful - lets you get instants back to your hand Mnemonic Wall achieves the same goal - never know when you need a counter spell!

Also, blue/black has great access to tutor cards Diabolic Tutor Long-Term Plans are some budget options to get cards the cards you need in your hand (or close to it)

What Pikobyte said. But for specific suggestions, I'll list them below.


- Brood Monitor isn't super strong in EDH. Not necessarily a must-cut, but one I'd definitly keep in mind. - Izoni, Thousand-Eyed is super powerful, but the mana requirements are pretty tough in a three-color deck. - Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis doesn't do much for your game plan. You have much better ways for forced sacrifice. - Scribe of the Mindful should probably be cut, unless you really want to keep the amount of Instant/Sorcery spells high. - Sphinx of Foresight , while interesting, is just kinda... meh. - Thallid Soothsayer is okay, but there are better sac outlets available to you. - Verdant Force is far too expensive and slow for what it does. - Weaver of Currents doesn't produce colored mana, which is important for a three-color deck.
- Curse of Disturbance isn't great, and not something you want to spend your T3 play on. - Underworld Connections could be cut in favor of better draw spells. Mystic Remora or Rhystic Study would be great here. -I respect the Exquisite Blood / Sanguine Bond combo, but without both cards you're stuck with a 5 CMC enchantment that doesn't do much for you.
- Haunted Fengraf and Rogue's Passage are both underwhelming, I'd look at replacing them with lands that produce colored mana or have stronger utility.
- Cast Down , Doom Blade , Incubation / Incongruity , Price of Fame , and Vona's Hunger are all decent removal, but again, you should prioritize permanents with those effects. - Dismiss and Unwind both seem like they're thrown in here. There's not much use for them. There are even creatures that can counter spells. - Thought Scour is worse than Stitcher's Supplier in this deck.
Nothing specific to replace here, but I would look into better (cheaper CMC) mana rocks and other value engines.

I also play Muldrotha, and I've gotten to be pretty happy with where my deck is at the moment. Seeing your comment above, I'll try to keep a budget in mind.

Firstly, you should aim to keep a bare minimum of nonpermanent spells. If there is a permanent that can replicate the effects of a spell, use it. For example, Sakura-Tribe Elder is one of the best creatures out there for what it does, and can easily replace cards such as Rampant Growth or similar. Burnished Hart is good as well, as it can be played as either your Artifact or Creature for the turn. I would certainly cut down on some of your spell-based removal, and look instead for more cards such as Fleshbag Marauder and/or Hostage Taker . Archaeomancer is probably better than Scribe of the Mindful , or at least another copy of it if you want to keep the amount of Instant and Sorcery spells as high as they are. Finally, some other cards I would prioritize adding are Wayfarer's Bauble , Skullclamp , Pernicious Deed , and Mystic Remora . Actually, on the topic of Cumulative Upkeep, Glacial Chasm and Elephant Grass are both incredibly powerful cards win conjunction with your commander. TL:DR - Prioritize permanents over spells, and keep in mind that cards with ETB/LTB effects are incredibly powerful, especially with a sacrifice outlet in play. I'll link my deck below if you want to check it out for inspiration, and if there is anything else I can do for you please let me know!

Brutal_B on Tide of Rot, A Tale of Lust for the Grave

Thanks a lot ThallionDarkshine. As far as focus goes, it's pretty simple: I just want to have my graveyard be an extension of my hand and be able to play "answers" to pesky permanents. I'd rather not spend over $20 on a single card.

I chose to run 33 lands cuz I found myself "fetching" lands often and even more often with Muldrotha on the board. I don't cast her until my graveyard has a good amount of permanents in it anyway so I'm not worried about playing her asap. I do tend to cycle some lands for draw when the opportunity arises cuz I know I will play them later from the yard. Circuitous Route , Burnished Hart , Sakura-Tribe Elder , and Shefet Monitor all help with a bit of ramp.

I like the idea of Manglehorn replacing Acid Web Spider , and Noxious Dragon is merely a place holder as I found it in my bulk and threw it in. Both spider and dragon are mainly flying blockers with a lil bonus; but I do agree that they are mana spendy.

I did splash a bit of sacrificing in cuz why not? Caustic Caterpillar and Thrashing Brontodon (removal), Burnished Hart and Sakura-Tribe Elder (land), Scribe of the Mindful to get back some value instant/sorcery, and some more options. Plus you put Sylvok Lifestaff on a creature before you sac it for the proverbial icing. Sac outlets also include Bone Splinters , Ruthless Disposal , Victimize , Burnished Hart , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Whisper, Blood Liturgist . And the sacrificing trigger from Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip! Then turn around and cast those sacrificees from the yard which would trigger Desecrated Tomb for more sac fodder, chumps, or aerial assualt.

I have to mention a great pairing: Ravenous Chupacabra enchanted with Followed Footsteps . I was contemplating putting Progenitor Mimic in as well.

This was a bit winded but this is the jist of the deck. It's not a fast starter but chugs along just fine when it picks up momentum. I'm aware there are a few kinks to work out and thus the reason I called for help. I appreciate any and all feedback, so again.. thank you!

lots of good counterspell are missing Counterspell , Swan Song , Stubborn Denial

all the signet are generaly worth using to help fixing and ramping Simic Signet , Dimir Signet and Talisman of Dominance is a good mana rock

Brainstorm , Preordain , Ponder are good cantrip and in control deck are important to filter land in late game or to dig for important piece

Dark Petition and Beseech the Queen are budget tutor that help finding response

Languish kill a lot of creature and doesnt kill tas and so is Pernicious Deed which is a instant speed boardclear (really freaking good) most of the time doesnt kill tas

Wilderness Reclamation help to keep mana up for interaction

Biomancer's Familiar could be good but didnt test it yet

40 land seems a lot maybe drop to 35-36?

for cuts : Grim Flayer cost 8 buck and doesnt do real much , Exsanguinate is unfortunatelty sorcery speed and is tricky to use because it use pretty much all our mana to be worth and make it so we cant interact also it's 4 dollars, Scribe of the Mindful is bad Flood of Recollection is way better for what it does, Disappearing Act is bad Dissolve is better
