shirouu: sorry man, I didn't realise Second Chance was that expensive! I was looking at building the list online, and it's only a 1 cent card on MTGO.

It depends on how you want to build the deck, but the good cheap cards I was looking at for Muldrotha were creatures and enchantments that have good sacrifice abilities, and spells that let you draw and discard (since discarding isn't that bad when you can play the cards from your graveyard with your commander).

So cards like Breakthrough, Windfall, Kagemaro's Clutch, Seal of Doom, Seal of Primordium, Sinister Concoction, Courier's Capsule, Executioner's Capsule, Mind Stone, Alchemist's Apprentice, Caustic Caterpillar, Fleshbag Marauder, and Merciless Executioner.

Also, cards like Secrets of the Dead and River Kelpie are good too (though River Kelpie may be too pricey).

You can use Second Chance with Muldrotha to take infinite turns, as long as you're on 5 or less life. If you use some cards that let you pay life for an effect (like Unspeakable Symbol), you can enable this pretty easily.

Grindig opponents out in a Group Hug fashion and preventing decks from doing anything feasible are the miserable ways this deck wins by.

If there is a need for it, Muldrotha’s still a 6/6 that can beat down but I’m open to suggestion if you think there are any enchantment based wins?

Lich and Second Chance offer an out of infinite turns into doing what we’d like.

If need be, there could be room for the infinite Gitrog combo, using Faith of the Devoted as an outlet.

LuxCannonator- I haven't thought about using Solitary Confinement and it might just be a better fit than Second Chance. Thanks for the great suggestion, I'll have to test it out next.

LuxCannonator- Thank you for the suggestions. I have added Replenish to the sideboard and may consider adding Academy Rector in the future.

I don't really want to add another color to this deck, but if I did, I would try and create some play between Enchanted Evening and Calming Verse. You'd create a one sided permanent wipe for all of your opponents.

I have decided to remove Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and test out a possible endless turn loop with Second Chance+Sun Titan. When you are at 5 or less life, you can keep sacrificing Second Chance for extra turns and attacking with Sun Titan to bring it right back again.

Traveler247 Tbh I dont need LED in the deck, but I have one and it synergises well so Im using it. As for cEDH lists, its used a lot in Doomsday lines and a little bit for infinite mana for Bomberman combos but Dramatic Scepter is really where its at with infinite mana these days.

I used to have the dark depths combo in a deck but found it a bit janky, although I can imagine it would fit well in this deck.

In my combo section I mention the use of Flash with Hulk, that combo however I would not say is janky. Thats one of the fastest combos available in the game, but Ive pretty much cut combos from this deck coz I have so many in other decks already.


  • Dead Man's Chest looks like some great value
  • Equilibrium I like this, I love playing control
  • Hostage Taker testing at the moment but havent drawn it yet, should be good though
  • Kederekt Leviathan awesome with reanimate enchantments, I talked about this in my combo section
  • Infernal Darkness I prefer Contamination especially in a creature heavy deck
  • Mind Harness I like Treachery over this as its basically free to cast with no upkeep costs
  • Finally, I want to avoid infinite turns with this deck because I have so many combos in other decks. Also I think Second Chance is more on flavour for infinite turns in this deck, or just playing a normal extra turn card like Time Warp and sacing then recasting E wit each turn / bouncing it with Deadeye would be better coz Time Sieve is a dead draw by itself

Getupkid1284, Second Chance is kinda bad as we have to wait a full turn to get the ability to trigger, putting the life total puts us in threat of being killed off, and getting down to 5 life is difficult to do in this build.

Last_Laugh on My Take on Muldrotha

Not a bad list, I do have a few suggestions though.

First, get Mikaeus, the Unhallowed in here. You already run the other 2/3 of an infinite kill-the-table combo (Walking Ballista and Protean Hulk). Your opponents quickly realize they can't boardwipe or kill the Hulk or you can usually win on the spot and it protects the rest of your boardstate.

Cephalid Coliseum, Fauna Shaman, and Survival of the Fittest (available in gold border for MUCH cheaper) are all great ways to selectively fill your grave. Golgari Grave-Troll and Stinkweed Imp are a bit less selective but still good options here.

I'd also replace Reclamation Sage with with Caustic Caterpillar. Scapeshift and Second Chance feel out of place here. I'd replace Scapeshift with Crop Rotation or Expedition Map. Second Chance I wouldn't run without some serious life manipulation like Necropotence and even then it's a bad card outside of comboing with it.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, upvotes, and ideas are appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite
