Hi ZendikariWol,

Plaguecrafter replaces one of the Edict brothers either Fleshbag Marauder or Merciless Executioner, and we don't need more than 2 of those in this deck.

As for Ravenous Chupacabra, it is too slow and Spore Frog is generally un-needed as my deck is setup to establish fast locks even before creature combat becomes relevant. Why stop combat damage if you remove their creatures or even prevent their creatures from ever being casted?

Solemn Simulacrum and Viridian Emissary count as bad ramp. They are all too slow. Run full set of 1 cmc dorks instead for the most efficient mana ramp. There's a reason why I also did not even consider Sakura-Tribe Elder.

Your other suggestions are also over-costed effects: Thoughtpicker Witch would be good if it did not have a 1 colorless activation cost. Sadistic Hypnotist belongs as a combo piece in Nath of the Gilt-Leaf. For discard you generally want them to be cheap and recurring, like Bottomless Pit, Burglar Rat, Liliana of the Veil or Oppression. Mindslicer is an exception because the effect is extremely powerful.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary is too slow. Run Dark Confidant instead. Even Phyrexian Arena barely makes it to the list.

Savra, Queen of the Golgari is over-costed and slow. The life component is generally irrelevant and for the sacrificial component, it is way faster and more efficient to tutor or chain into the Edict brothers through Birthing Pod, Fauna Shaman or Survival of the Fittest and then recurring through Meren.

To make Meren competitive, any card that costs more than 3 CMC has to either cripple your opponent decks by cripping their important pieces or be part of your win conditions. Stax pieces are very important to stop combo decks from steamrolling over you.

This is a nice idea! I hope you manage to make it work.

You need a Strionic Resonator to double the activations of Ob-Nixilis or Maralen.

Avatar of Growth would be great if you can lay your hands on one.

I am not too fond of the white counterspell sub-theme you have included; with this color scheme you have ample options for removal. Personally I like Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, and Pernicious Deed. With your search to kill theme, Assassin's Trophy and Path to Exile should also be included.

Not sure why you are currently including Gift of Immortality, but adding a Spore Frog and a Necrotic Sliver makes for fun control.

Since your theme is running a bit thin, I see two options to make this deck more efficient : filling it to the brim with tutors, or including an alternate wincon. I definitely favour the second option; and I though you would like it to include your hidden general for flavor. Here is my suggestion for that:

Liliana's Contract and inexpensive Demons, like Desecration Demon, Grinning Demon, Herald of Torment, Indulgent Tormentor, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, Rakshasa Deathdealer, Soulcage Fiend.

Hope this helps!

you might want Spore Frog for more fog. Your manabase should be about >6 of each basic land and a ton of dual lands of your choice. You also might want to throw in Golgari, Gruul, and Rakdos Signets as well as Gilded Lotus for more ramp

Pikobyte on Muldrotha Second Attempt

It doesn’t look that bad. My Muldrotha deck draws a lot of hate and usually Muldrotha is target of spot removal. Try to avoid that with some more protection to keep your engine going. Diplomatic Immunity and Curator's Ward are some cheap and effective ways to deal with that problem.

You run a lot of ramp too, try to cut some of it for some more pieces to control the board. Night Incarnate is a nice sweeper for token decks or stuff like goblins or elves while it doesn’t hurt you much.

A bit more pricey but very effective way to stop aggro decks is a Spore Frog. It’s really a pain to deal with if you rely on combat damage to win.

Hope this helps you a bit

FogonaFrog66 (Love your usernames reference to Spore Frog) I don’t like Plaguecrafter because I feel like It would be better in a deck with more reanimation. Vandalblast while I do think is a good card I feel might generate a lot of hate towards me and also will not see as much use against green decks due to land-based ramp. While I do like Cyclonic Rift I’m not sure I would run it in a deck with colors that give me access to so many other board wipes, I will consider the card though. I actually have a copy of Thraximundar lying around somewhere, he’s good removal on a creature and it also is on theme with bolas because I believe he actually served him as a general on grixis at some point. I do need a Chaos Warp ASAP since grixis decks have no enchantment removal besides over-costed colorless cards. Great suggestions!

This is the most creatures I’ve seen in one of her builds, and it’s glorious. Maybe her creature protection could use a bolster? Sylvan Safekeeper or Siren Stormtamer or Spellskite are low CMC, and can help keep Muldrotha out for much longer. If you felt the need, you could improve your creature selection with Survival of the Fittest,Fauna Shaman, or Evolutionary Leap. While we’re talking about creatures, you run 46 creatures and no Craterhoof Behemoth? Blasphemy.

Thank you for referring me to this great list! Does having 17 non-permanent spells ever clash with Muldrotha’s ability, in your experience running the deck? I really like the inclusion of Spellskite. Helps protect your General from being targeted while also being an artifact/creature. Spore Frog and Elephant Grass seem like they’d be good in your deck for stalling/Control purposes. Can’t say that without mentioning Glacial Chasm. Holds down a board for days. Finally, try Scapeshift out. It has swung games hugely in my favor, with the help of Tatyova, Benthic Druid and Titania, Protector of Argoth. Wonderful work, thanks again
