Drakorya on Muldrotha Commander HELP

1 day ago

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).

McToters on Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

Ares111123 Great suggestions! I actually have a Nykthos but I'm using it in my mono-red deck right now. I may invest in another one soon. Sensei's is also in the mono-red only cause that needs more help with cycling through the deck. I definitely want to take out Serum Visions for something better (in the name of draw). I may add Erebos, but I'm more inclined to put in a Phyrexian Arena in. Do you think I should run the arena and Rhystic Study? Also not sure how I feel about Fallen Ideal but in the right acenario it gives Grimgrin flying and it is also an alt sac outlet.

Right now I'm planning on adding an All Hallow's Eve for some awesome flavor, and maybe a Lake of the Dead.

What do you think about Secrets of the Dead? I have it and have toyed with the idea of using it.

Man, this deck has gone up price by almost $40 since I last checked.

Much of it is from the foil Secrets of the Dead (thank you Muldrotha), the Herald's Horn has almost tripled, and Undead Warchief looks like it's gained $2 or so. The rest must be general inflation. The upgrades I just added may have added ~$3-5 but I took out a $2 card too (Havengul Lich).

Last_Laugh on My Second Library

I have several suggestions for you but this is a good start.

First, a few lands. Cephalid Coliseum, Crystal Vein, Strip Mine, and Command Beacon are all great here.

Next, artifacts/enchantments. Pernicious Deed, Defense of the Heart, Lotus Petal, Mystic Remora, Elephant Grass, Nihil Spellbomb, Animate Dead, Necromancy, Birthing Pod, Secrets of the Dead, Bear Umbra, and Survival of the Fittest (available in gold border for MUCH cheaper).

Last_Laugh on Any seats left on the bandwagon?

Not a bad start but I do have a few suggestions for you.

First, lands. Crystal Vein, Strip Mine, and Cephalid Coliseum are all good lands here. I'd also work on getting Verdant Catacombs or running off color fetches to take advantage of Muldrotha's built in Crucible of Worlds.

Next, artifacts/enchantments. Lotus Petal, Altar of Dementia, Secrets of the Dead, Survival of the Fittest (available in gold border for MUCH cheaper), Rhystic Study, Elephant Grass, and Bear Umbra.

Creatures. Maybe Merciless Executioner, Fierce Empath, Shriekmaw, Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Grave-Troll and Spore Frog.

Last_Laugh on Muldrotha, exp counters and infinite turns

I have several suggestions so gonna break them down by card type. I'm not covering planeswalkers, suffice it to say I'm not a huge fan of any here unless you have Liliana of the Veil sitting around lol.

First, lands: Cephalid Coliseum, Crystal Vein, and Command Beacon are all great options here.

Enchantments: Secrets of the Dead, Mystic Remora, Elephant Grass, Dance of the Dead, Necromancy, and I'm partial to Bear Umbra for both the land untap and totem armor.

Artifacts: Altar of Dementia, Lotus Petal, and Nihil Spellbomb.

Intants/Sorceries: Beast Within, Cyclonic Rift, and Heroic Intervention

T.Sloan on (Building) Muldrotha EDH

Alrighty, took a quick look and made some adjustments, could you tell me what you think darksilver? Going to remove Dakmor Salvage, Elves of Deep Shadow, Roil Elemental, Font of Fortunes, Phyrexian Arena, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Dictate of Karametra, and Temple of the False God. To replace these I was gonna add Realms Uncharted, Horn of Greed,Kiora, Master of the Depths, Secrets of the Dead, Ramunap Excavator, Burgeoning, Sands of Delirium, Elixir of Immortality, Havengul Lich, and Barren Moor. Have not added Alchemist's Refuge yet, need to though. Thinking about removing an artifact to facilitate this, maybe Ratchet Bomb or Wayfarer's Bauble. Or maybe Jace or Liliana... Decisions, decisions. But! I haven't made these changes yet!

T.Sloan on (Building) Muldrotha EDH

darksilver, thanks for the input man!!! Mill has kinda been my guilty pleasure since I started playing, so I do want to include it here as much as possible. I'm thinking about scavenging some more from my (Built) Lazav EDH deck, haven't looked into yet, but maybe some of the artifacts, and convert that mainly to control/shapeshifter. I should probably tell you, budget is a big thing, lol, otherwise Font of Fertility and Font of Fortunes wouldn't be making an appearance, the money cards are just ones I've picked up along the way. I actually picked up two Ravenous Chupacabra tonight, and one of them definitely made the switch you were suggesting. I am going to be switching Ramunap Excavator from my (Built) Jarad EDH deck to this for sure, and throw in Burgeoning as well (what are your thoughts on that?). I like Llanowar Scout because it does let me play extra lands, but are you thinking I have too many of these instances? Like with Courser of Kruphix? Or is scout just too weak for that still? The reason I am playing Courser is twofold, he is an enchantment creature, and I tried to get as many permanents with multiple types in here so I would always be able to maximize my commander's ability, and he lets me play stuff out of my library just like Vizier of the Menagerie (which really gives me 3 places to play all told). Speaking of multiple types on permanents, that's the same logic behind Etherium Sculptor and Kruphix, God of Horizons, although secondary to multiple types is that the sculptor can make some of my artifacts free (and I think I will be adding more now, like Horn of Greed which I just got, and whatever milling I decide to do) and Kruphix can net me a lot of mana over time, which man, I know I have an artifact that has X mill in it... But... what do you think of those two still? I guess let me find the other stuff and then see... I need to get a few Perpetual Timepiece for like three or four decks, but as of now I don't have any. On that note, I think I might take out Mirror-Mad Phantasm because you are right about him milling me out, I just wanted to use him so bad; what do you think? I kinda like Death's Approach in here because more targeted removal without qualifiers is nice, it gets around indestructible, only costs one mana, and it's an enchantment so it gives me more options there. That all being said I think I am going to put in Fleshbag Marauder since I pulled him from a pack tonight (literally no shop has had a version of him the past week), and after that are you still not liking approach? Also, no Shriekmaw has I sadly. Your comment about lack of instant speed interaction does strike a chord within me... might look into throwing in Alchemist's Refuge, though my Kumena deck will be sorry to see it go, lol. I do believe I am going to find a way to fit in Secrets of the Dead, because my hand needs to have cards as well, probably, and that's so awesome I wish I had thought of it before. As for Cyclonic Rift, and Beast Within... I really didn't want to move away from the permanent theme (also... I do not own a Rift, please do not doubt my seriousness as a commander player, lol), but I might actually be adding something I picked up today in the $.50 bin, Realms Uncharted. After looking over this again with your words, and some new thoughts, in my mind these are the cards I'm for sure going to be pulling: Villainous Wealth and Shambling Shell, those are just the for sure ones though. I think I might invest more into the creatures... sigh, part of me wants to bring over my Lord of Extinction, but it makes Jarad really. Thanks again though!!! And have I changed your mind any? I do know you may want to wait until I have made more chnages, but seeing it through your eyes has helped a lot already.
