Sinister Concoction Discussion

Brutal_B on muldrotha

Filigree Familiar is great in Muldrotha. Cast it from the graveyard as either an artifact or creature that benefits you on entry and death. Sinister Concoction is decent cheap removal. I like creatures like Caustic Caterpillar, Thrashing Brontodon for their utility uses and unless they get exiled you can continue to cast and sac as needed. Cycle Shefet Monitor early game for a land and card draw and then cast him from GY later. Desecrated Tomb is fun with Muldrotha. Might as well play Mirage Mirror too.

@sam171z, I've never built in golgari colors or green more specifically so my advice might not be the best.

Based on your deck you might find Arbor Elf helpful.

There's a lack of removal in this deck and you might find these cards helpful: Dismember , Go for the Throat , Sinister Concoction , Thrashing Brontodon , Sylvok Replica , Force of Vigor .

Skullclamp is a really good card draw source especially if you pair it with Bloodghast and fetch-lands. Dark Tutelage is another option if you don't mind the life loss. Mirri's Guile seems to also be pretty strong with shuffle effects like fetch-lands.

Pattern of Rebirth seems like a really strong tutor effect for you.

Melira, Sylvok Outcast might be a good inclusion as you can win the game with her + Devoted Druid + Walking Ballista / Bloodrite Invoker .

Hope this helps you.

Synreth Thanks for your feedback! I'm happy to hear that this idea inspired you to make your own interpretation! Both Altar of Dementia and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries are great suggestions that I heavily considered when putting this together. I agree that they both deserve a place in the deck, especially labman Jace. The problem is that I'm having a lot of trouble finding cards to cut. I agree that Sinister Concoction may not be the most efficient removal, but the key is that it's repeatable with Muldrotha and without it, I'm only running one other piece of creature removal in the deck. I'm gonna take some more time to look it over and hopefully find a place for both of them.

As for your own deck, I love the addition of Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage . That's a great combo that will be easy to find once the mill gets going. And it really only takes one slot since thespian's stage can replace any other land.

One piece of advice I can give you is I noticed that you cut down to 35 lands (excluding glacial chasm) and I think that's too few considering that we need to get to 6 mana in order for the deck to function at all, and we aren't running very much ramp. I've tested my version and I found that even with 37 lands I still have a hard time getting to 6 mana consistently.

Thanks again for weighing in, and I wish you success with your own build!

Really enjoying this deck! It has inspired me to try recreate this deck myself and potentially build it out of my failing Muldrotha deck.

Some cards you may be interested in are Jace, Wielder of Mysteries as another Lab Man or Altar of Dementia instead of Sinister Concoction

If you'd like to check out my take it is here at ; http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/01-01-20-muldrotha-self-mill/?cb=1577939419, it is still in progress and has your copied description but I have added some combos you may like :).

Thanks for the awesome idea!

First off Taplands are going to hurt every deck so cut at least 2 Crypt of Agadeem , 4 Fetid Pools , maybe 1 Dakmor Salvage , and 2 Watery Grave (you shouldn't need that many). Add 4 Polluted Delta and basic lands. Also Bitter Ordeal isn't that great honestly unless built around. The first time I saw it I thought I could just do a ton of self-milling with it, but the permanents need to enter the graveyard from the battlefield (which makes it useless unless built around even in a very graveyard oriented deck). Also I would add 4 Damping Sphere to the sideboard, it 100% turns off Tron and Storm and slows other decks down. Finlly Sinister Concoction is a cool card, but seems too slow. I would recommend cutting it for 4 Fatal Push .

Hedronz that card's cool, i haven't seen that yet. for cards to help you dump cards Necrogen Mists , Pox , Smallpox , Collective Brutality , Sinister Concoction or fauna shaman are some cards off the top of my head which do not completely suck. from a budgetless perspective, having razaketh in the deck means that drawing a hulk piece is no dealbreaker; activate raz, crack LED in response, discard hulk, razaketh resolves fetching necromancy.

pao2 sorry to say it but you need LED. L//D on its own is bottom of the barrel reanimation, i'd say it's even with exhume. razaketh without both L//D and LED isn't good enough; reanimating razaketh with permanents in play must win the game. out of the replacement options you mentioned i'd choose tanglewire and fleshbag #3. replacing imperial seal with a fauna shaman or armasaur makes sense, you have to maintain a reasonable ratio of card selection and advantage effects but they're largely interchangeable.

i'm sick of answering questions on tappedout so i'm going to add a permanent invitation to the meren discord at the top of this bastard. let me know if it doesn't work.
