Sepulchral Primordial Discussion

I don't normally comment but I see someone else also loves the idea of edh mill :)
IMO in commander spells that are targeted like Fraying Sanity or Curse of the Bloody Tome are worse than global effects like Memory Erosion. It doesn't matter if it's 1v1 commander, but anything in a group setting makes them worse. Stuff like Hedron Crab and Curse of the Bloody Tome can too slow for 100 card decks. You're not guaranteed to play them early and by the time you mill 10 or 20 cards they'll have their commander and some other nonsense to just end the game. Some people play Kozilek, Butcher of Truth so milling them out is impossible without Leyline of the Void
Some cards which might help are Ashen Powder Whispering Madness Soul Manipulation Dissipation Field Quest for Ancient Secrets Avatar of Woe Body Double Consuming Aberration Guiltfeeder Nighthowler Sepulchral Primordial Wrexial, the Risen Deep Entreat the Dead Wight of Precinct Six

So here are a few suggestions to make the deck a bit more versatile.
(also i dont know how to make stuff get highlighted in comments so this may be difficult to decipher)
!) although muldrotha has recursion built in its always good to have more. I would suggest adding a Sepulchral Primordial because it has good abusable effect and some other re-animator effects. Also don't relay to much on your commander's effect for recursion its always good to have other methods encase people keep removing her or do other things to her. - Some good ones would be Animate Dead and Phyrexian Delver, both these you can re use with muldrotha also. The Eldest Reborn should also be a mainboard because its removal and can be recursion. The mending is also good even if it shuffles your graveyard away as you can build back easily I think. Deadbridge Chant is also good. - Adding some sac outlets would also be helpful to abuse some triggers as well, Ashnods Alter is a good option or Hell's Caretaker.
2) more removal i think is needed a Bone Shredder and Ravenous Chupacabra would be good additions. - Also don't be afraid to have more instants and sorcerie's there are many creature etbs that can return those such as Eternal Witness she would be great. Adding some good ramps spells would be good or other removal effects like Krosan Grip and board wipes like Crux of Fate or if you can afford it Damnation.
3) cards that don't do enough. I think a few of the cards don't do enough even if they can be recurred easily so the below i would suggest replacing thees cards i also have a suggestion for a possible replacement for a few of them or you can use suggestions from above:
- Acidic Slime ->Caustic Caterpillar cheaper to use for same effect, land target isn't used very often
- Baleful Strix -> Disciple of Bolas (more draw plus life gain, also allows you to reuse etb affects from dead creatures.
- Bane of the Living
- Mystic Snake -> Corpse Augur
- Vampire Hexmage
- Mind Slaver -> doesn't do enough in multiplayer
- Roil Elemental -> fun card, but devotion seems high for a three color deck
- All the planes walkers, I don't think any of them fit the theme or do much i would run a deaths majesty lilliana but nothing else comes to mind for this deck
Other stuff: Don't forget that Panharmonicon does not help landfall effects, it only helps if a Creature or artifact etb

As far as threats go Massacre Wurm is fantastic against tokens and other small creatures also Sepulchral Primordial is fantastic against creature decks also Grave Titan can be an absolute house of a finisher.

You want a deck that will remove the opponents deck while it controls what they’re doing and steadily building a zombie swarm?
A couple important red zombies will be Neheb, the Eternal and Wildfire Eternal. You could play Sedris, the Traitor King to bring stuff back on the cheap, and even Liliana's Reaver, Siren of the Silent Song, Order of Yawgmoth, and Slavering Nulls. All these guys getting through will be made easier if you have Zombie Master and Graf Harvest too. Undead Alchemist can make more zombies while they eat all the brains too...
Then you can play planeswalkers like Liliana, Death's Majesty to reanimate stuff repeatedly and the one Bolas does it too. Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Sepulchral Primordial and Diluvian Primordial are all good, and even Molten Primordial can be if you have a way to sacrifice the stuff you steal like Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Carrion Feeder or Corpse Harvester.

You can go aggro control. Most of the creatures do hurt (5 power) with effective etb effect/s. Flickering them reuses their etb and give pseudo vigilance.
I will raise a disclaimer that esper tends to run "good stuff" because, well, there are good spells that have little to no alternates.
From the creature list: consider keeping
--removal Angel of Despair
--draw Sphinx of Uthuun
Sepulchral Primordial -> another good one, getting creatures in opponents' gy
Vela the Night-Clad -> could be a win con, when you flicker enough
Sun Titan -> not sure if you have many 3cmc permanents, but usually great to have
maybeboard Boreas Charger
hope this helps.

Hello Cloudius and thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! I checked out your creatureless version, very nice! Looks like quite a formidable deck!
I thought to go light on creatures at first, but in my last edits I turned the deck more creature heavy, as my first take was not working out all that well. My current version has some mill effects coupled with reanimation of opponent creatures through effects like Sepulchral Primordial, but the jury is out still if my deck is trying to do too many different mechanics. If I continue along this path of using the opponent deck against them, I will likely add Blatant Thievery and Bribery if I can free them up from other decks.
Best of luck and cheers!

How has Ishkanah been performing for you? Are the tokens significant enough?
You probably want to find a slot for the new Underrealm Lich with its powerful graveyard filling and card selection. Also it has great synergy with Gitrog.
Do you think Breakthrough might be useful as a way to draw multiple cards and fill the graveyard?
Meren of Clan Nel Toth could be good for recursion.
Cryptic Command could be useful for its versatility. I think Shadow of Doubt is less versatile compared to simply countering the tutor or tutored spell.
