semsandberg on Muldrotha: Needs help

1 week ago

Hey bobobo77,

Muldrotha is an awesome commander and as I see you have a great base here. I have some suggestions for you. First I would add some mana-dorks like: Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , Boreal Druid , Elves of Deep Shadow or Sakura-Tribe Elder , Wood Elves . With Muldrotha often it works like Meren of Clan Nel Toth , you need a Grave Pact , Dictate of Erebos and a Butcher of Malakir . Than you can use all the AristocraticStuff like Spore Frog , Fauna Shaman , Mulldrifter , Shriekmaw , Fleshbag Marauder , Plaguecrafter , Eternal Witness and I highly recommend you The Gitrog Monster .

That's some thoughts. If you like, check out my Sidisi the Land reanimator-deck.

I think you want to go in on the self-mill, make zombies theme, so you should trim the fat on things that don't fit what you want to do. I like the dredge cards, and I like the cards that put cards from the top of your library into your graveyard to trigger Sidisi, Brood Tyrant .

Cut Prime Speaker Vannifar , Razaketh, the Foulblooded , Sidisi, Undead Vizier , Tasigur, the Golden Fang , Taigam, Sidisi's Hand , The Scarab God . I'm not big on counters, so I'd probably leave out Frilled Mystic . Liliana of the Veil and Liliana Vess don't really fit the theme. Switch Wonder for Filth , especially since you're running Urborg. I think most of your tutors could go, so Diabolic Tutor and even Jarad's Orders could go. I'm not sure Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord fits very well, other than he's a zombie. If you see yourself sacrificing lots of zombies to him, then keep him.

You should run Rooftop Storm , and consider Soulquake . Take out Shriekmaw and put in Fleshbag Marauder (fits the tribe), and don't forget that Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a zombie, too, and you're running a high black pip count; he'll pay off. I'm wavering on Meren and Muldrotha; I see why they are here, and how the will be useful...especially Muldrotha. If you had to choose one, I'd keep Muldrotha. Villainous Wealth is fun, but is it what you want this deck to do?

I hope that helps you get started!

After a couple rounds of play testing 1v1, and a few multiplayer games, I've made the following changes:

IN: Chromatic Lantern Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth Wayfarer's Bauble Commander's Sphere Toxic Deluge

OUT:

Deathrite Shaman Desecrated Tomb Glowspore Shaman Shriekmaw Swamp

I like Grenzo decks. Here's a couple of cards I thought might work well with your build. Junktroller and Reito Lantern give you more copies of the Epitaph Golem effect. Heartstone will let you use his ability two times as much, as long as you're okay with it helping your opponents, too.

As it currently stands, your deck could use more creatures in order to use Grenzo's ability better. With only 20 creatures, you'll whiff 3 out of 4 times. There are lots of creatures who have similar abilities to cards in your deck. Here are some examples.

Dark Ritual and Priest of Gix or Priest of Urabrask

Dictate of Erebos and Butcher of Malakir

Any burn spell and Murderous Redcap , Flametongue Kavu , Flayer of the Hatebound (please, please, please add this card)

Any kill spell and Nekrataal , Meteor Golem , and Shriekmaw

Expedite and Ogre Battledriver

Scouring Sands and Siege Dragon or Dagger Caster
