Vedalken Orrery and / or more control instants. You need early game control, the, Omipotence.

Absolutely right, yes. But if you include Vedalken Orrery, that will let you pay for any of your spells on your upkeep!

Yeah! Like Ball Lightning or the like...that'll wipe EVERYBODY. I think my favorite is Infinite Reflection, though, because you can give it away with a creature spell on the stack to give your opponents a hurtful ETB or neuter their board after attacks are declared. Before reading your deck, I had never even considered putting it on an opponent's creatures...

Wait---Doesn't Infinite Reflection stop your commander from working (Since while it's under your control, it changes what Zedruu is)? You'd have to do it with Donate or Harmless Offering which sucks because it's at Sorcery-speed. Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery would put this trick back on-line, but may not be worth the slot.

Keep tinkering. There's a lot of good shenanagans in this deck and I've learned a lot trying to think these cards through.

Last_Laugh - Thanks for all of those suggestions. I believe your deck was actually one of the ones I initially looked at when considering how to build Muldrotha. It's a pretty great blueprint. What is your opinion on cards Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation in this deck? They are a nonbo with Muldrotha, but they speed up the rest of the deck.

SaifurCommander - Thanks for the comment. I have actually considered Grave Pact type cards and ultimately opted to leave them out. While I was initially building the deck, I found that card space is at a premium. I chose to leave those cards out mainly because while my deck does run a decent amount of sacrifice effects, it isn't really dedicated to that archetype. I opted to include either cards that advanced my main focus, or cards that synergized well with Muldrotha. Palace Siege seems like a good option so I will definitely consider that.

Strangelove on Muldrotha Recursion-Prototype

Definitely needs Wayfarer's Bauble and Voidmage Prodigy.

Move Nezahal, Primal Tide to Draw. The draw makes him good more than anything... Like another Sphinx.

Glacial Chasm Count it as a land and take a land out. Downsides: Requires Muldrotha in play; Pricey Fog that requires players to run MLD or recurring land removal to answer; Probably not fun/healthy. Idk... I would play it competively, but you might regret having it in casuals.

13 Cuts:

  • Yavimaya Elder I bet you the is going to be annoying and he's 5 mana to run. Muldrotha is going to be under a lot of pressure to get things out when she's alive so he's by himself, really, and blue has good draw... so more baubles imo.

  • World Shaper If the gimmick isn't fun, out with him.

  • Ramunap Excavator I think Muldrotha covers both of these and only good if you hit the dinosaur or oracle.

  • Perpetual Timepiece > Dreamborn Muse > Frantic Search. I would pick one. Probably the one that is worth and easy to cast with Muldrotha.
  • Sultai Charm Versatile, but also conditional. I think we just wheel/loot into the removal we need.

So... we have enough cards that are good when Muldrotha is in play. Lets pretend she's dead (indefinitely)...

  • Compulsive Research "Draw 2"
  • Dark Bargain "Draw 2, lose 2 life"
  • Birthing Pod < Sidisi, Undead Vizier < Final Parting cut two of these. Pod needs you to be creature based and to be built around... I think it interferes too much with the plan and is better with Elves and tokens. The latter two are close. Both want Muldrotha in play, but I think fetching Mimeoplasm or Ooze (or Dark Depths/Hexmage!) with Parting is stronger and less conditional. I love Sidisi though ;(
  • Swan Song and/or Pact of Negation Negation is better if you have lots of counterspells or have to storm. If someone can tap your lands, gg. Sub in Voidmage Prodigy (same thing but reusable).
  • Vedalken Orrery I don't think its worth when it doesn't interact with Muldrotha. You're running ramp and, again, not a lot of counterspells so you can just leave the mana open and spend it elsewhere instead of dumping into Orrery.

Also consider subbing more enchantment removal just to even the slots.

KittenPetter on Tatyova, Value Engine

Yeah! But like you said making a whole army usually works. I want the cards Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation to give suto haste while, if not, keeping a counter spell or that wonderful Soratami Savant with enough mana up to ensure that my board is able to stay around.
