Shriekmaw Discussion

Xica on The Wrath of the Scarab ...

3 days ago

I would recommend playing Shriekmaw over Ravenous Chupacabra. It does something past turn 2, instead of past turn 4, which is very relevant, as it can stop things like Baral, Chief of Compliance storm, or Devoted Druid + Vizier of Remedies and the like from murdering you on turn 3 after they untapped with their creatures. Plus it has a relevant evasion on its body when reanimated.

As usual i will mention that The Scarab God is at its best when its cheaper to activate thanks to stuff like Training Grounds (also plays well with Pack Rat), or cast due to Heartless Summoning.

Bchong on Muldrotha, Recycling Queen

I am just going to start off by saying that Muldrotha excels are enabling weird combos or recurring value plays. It also seems like you are playing a fairly cheaper deck so I won't bother with all the lands you could put in and other super expensive stuff.

One of the things you are missing are

all the 0 mana artifacts: Tormod's Crypt Lotus Petal

1cmc: Caustic Caterpillar Elephant Grass any one cmc mana dorks Nature's Claim Carrion Feeder Skullclamp Unbridled Growth Nihil Spellbomb Pithing Needle All of the one cmc tutors such as Entomb Crop Rotation

2 cmc: all the possible signets and talismans, Zulaport Cutthroat Ratchet Bomb Animate Dead

3cmc: Windfall Frantic Search and you don't have to listen to this one...for of just the fun card Oppression

4cmc: Null Brooch

Some of the super fun combos are... Dream Halls Food Chain

now what to take out and why... In general I play in a faster meta where many of your creatures aren't able to even be played before the game ends

Cut: everything that is 5 cmc and above and every planeswalker except Shriekmaw Mulldrifter Deadeye Navigator this is because these card are simply not impactful enough and there are better alternatives around...

remove every single "when creature dies everyone loses a life" except Blood Artist and my suggestion of Zulaport Cutthroat you have too many redundant affects.

and here is just some fairly "bad" cards in your deck 4 cmc or less: World Shaper Vizier of the Menagerie Solemn Simulacrum Sidisi, Brood Tyrant Hostage Taker Dreamborn Muse Baleful Strix Nevinyrral's Disk Control Magic Reliquary Tower

you might even want to consider taking out Sol Ring but i guess it helps you play muldrotha

anyways good luck to you

Card Suggestions

Pieguy396 on Muldrotha, the Gravetide

1 week ago

Hi! I'm personally a huge fan of Muldrotha as a commander; so first of all, nice choice! Here are some cuts and additions I'd recommend:

Cuts:

  • Archetype of Endurance. This card is very powerful to be sure, but Muldrotha already needs a lot of mana to function, and you don't have very many ways to cheat it into play.
  • Butcher of Malakir. Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos are more expensive money-wise, but being cheaper on mana and also more resilient makes them much, much better.
  • Deranged Assistant. It looks good at first glance, but it's a 2-mana dork, and you're not playing any of the 1-mana dorks anyways. The single-card mill is a very minor upside.
  • Millikin. Same as above.
  • Nyx Weaver. It can be very good, but it's just too slow. There are much better ways to mill yourself, and a 6-mana Regrowth is way too much mana.
  • Progenitor Mimic. A powerful card to be sure, but this isn't the deck for it.
  • Slum Reaper. I think this card is only really worth running in decks that badly need the 3rd Fleshbag Marauder. Shriekmaw is almost always going to be better.
  • Aether Spellbomb. Looping it can be fun, but bouncing a creature is a terrible waste, and there are better ways to draw cards with artifacts.
  • Perpetual Timepiece. This card was good on Game Knights when they were only using Standard cards, but we have better options.
  • Plague Boiler. This card is also cool, but once again, we have better choices.
  • Demonic Vigor. Fun with Muldrotha, but there is usually so much exile-based removal in Commander that this card isn't as good as you think.
  • Hesitation. Sweet include, but looks a little too cute. Very easy to play around, and also counters your spells.
  • Skeletal Grimace. Same as Demonic Vigor.
  • Thrull Retainer. Same.

Additions:

Hope this helps! Feel free to leave a comment on my profile if you'd like further suggestions for this or any other deck! Good luck!

Firegriff on Budget Muldrotha - advice

Shriekmaw is a good place to start.

jessetaverne on Muldrotha, Tides of Madness (1 combo)

multimedia

Thanks! Makes sense, and powerful combo indeed. Not too much of a fan of ballista + mikaeus, but the combo is clever.

Fauna Shaman and/or Birthing Pod sound like great additions because of the tutor abilities. I’ll try and get someone to trade them, they’re a lot of fun and can gain me access more easily to silver bullets like Spore Frog, Deranged Hermit, Caustic Caterpillar and Shriekmaw.

TheGiantOfTheJungle on Budget-friendly Mimeoplasm Deck

2 weeks ago

Dude for a first deck this is pretty damn good! Seriously nice job. My only recommendations would maybe be 3-5 more bits of removal and maybe a couple of bits of consistent card draw.

I also am not sure how much Necrotic Ooze would do at this point as you appear to only have 4 activated ability creatures. He is superbly powerful, but doesn't seem to really gel with the rest of the boyos.

Fact or Fiction, Shriekmaw, Beast Within and Mulldrifter would be a couple of my reccomendations

Neotrup on Protection from creatures and Awakening ...

1 month ago

No. Protection prevents 4 things:

Damage - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be damaged by creatures.
Equipping/enchanting - Not relevant with Holy Mantle, but White Knight can't be enchanted with Unholy Strength.
Blocked - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be blocked by creatures, which is to say it cannot be blocked.
Targeted - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be targeted by abilities of creatures (like Shriekmaw's ability).

As Wakening Sun's Avatar's ability doesn't target or deal damage, it's not effected by protection.
