Victory Chimes Discussion

Alright man, this deck has some real potential and I am super into it. The first things as you said is that you need to cut cards. You do not want to be running more than 100 otherwise it will weaken the whole deck. Some of my own suggestions would be Kiss of the Amesha, Vizkopa Guildmage, Elixir of Immortality, Spectral Searchlight, Karmic Justice, Victory Chimes, Blessed Alliance, Second Sunrise, Axis of Mortality and or Beacon of Immortality
My next thing I think your deck needs is a strong game ender. This is pretty much a control deck but you could really use a way to end a game when it gets down to just you and your "friend". Note most of my suggestions are trying to be as political as possible. Check out Corrupted Conscience, Paradox Haze, Cultural Exchange, Bribery, Mind's Dilation, Reins of Power, and Archfiend of Despair. These are just my own suggestions though I am super interested to see where this deck with go! Ps Celestial Dawn is just a good card in this deck.

Hmm, it's easy to suggest cards, but trying to suggest cuts is a challenge haha. I personally think that you should cut Aku Djinn, Master of the Feast, and Liliana's Contract. The Djinn and Master are the "bad type" of group hug cards IMO. All they are are big dumb beaters (which aren't really that big for EDH) that only provide benefits to your opponents. For me, if I am playing group hug, I want to be getting equal value to what I am granting my opponents, otherwise they will just outpace me.
As far as Liliana's Contract goes, I don't think that you are running enough demons for it to be a viable win-con and all it will do is put a target on your pack (no matter how much you are helping you opponents).
With all that said, I think the best way to figure out cuts would be to just play the deck and see what works and what doesn't work.

You could probably upgrade some of your 3 cmc 1 mana rocks to give you some more utility.

Couple potential pitfalls I can see I have some suggestions regarding. If Xantcha's controller dies, the effect exchanging control of her ends, and she reverts back to your control without changing zones (no opportunity to put her back in the command zone). As such, you probably will want more sac outlets than just High Market, or at least some instant speed kill spells to aim at her.
As far as making her a little more interesting, I might suggest Vampiric Link to give her pseudo lifelink, except you still get the benefit rather than her controller. Laccolith Rig is another card that can get really fun on her, as if someone chump blocks her, you can still take out a different creature with 5 or less toughness, or if someone was blocking her with something that would kill her, and she can't trade with, you can at least have her kill something else on her way out.
Also, Victory Chimes is really nice since it lets you help you encourage your opponents to use her ability since you can effectively make it cost one less the first time.

Possibly Victory Chimes as one of your rocks, that one mana to other players might just push them over the edge on activating Xantcha's ability

Couple of notes up front (might just be due to ongoing edits):
- You have 2 copies of Victory Chimes in the list
- You only have 96 cards in the list (including the duplicate above) instead of 100
Want to suggest a couple of deck strategies to consider focusing in on (they are all fairly synergistic but it might help to pick one to focus on to help the deck feel like it has a clearer win condition):
With your current list of mill-value and beats, the missing pieces only seem to be ways to close the game.
- Keening Stone to close out a player with mill
- Necrotic Ooze to take advantage of any opponents' powerful abilities
- Consuming Aberration and Lord of Extinction seem quite good
- Psychosis Crawler takes advantage of the multiple windfall effects you are running but otherwise isn't too synergistic
- Splinterfright is a cheaper Lhurgoyf with better keywording and a synergistic 'tax' that works in your favor. Terravore might be worth considering too.
Discard Group Slug
I think this is a really interesting avenue for Muldrotha: running cards like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Waste Not, Oppression, Mindslicer and Myojin of Night's Reach to clear out your own and opponents' hands while benefiting from Muldrotha and other graveyard recursion effects to allow yourself to keep making plays. It would be a deck unlike any other at our table so far.
Other solid cards that support this archetype:
- Scythe Specter, Hypnotic Specter, Liliana's Specter
- Cabal Conditioning
- Words of Waste
- Necrogen Mists
- Bloodhusk Ritualist
- Bottomless Pit
- Sword of Feast and Famine (yeah, expensive though)
- Painful Quandary
- Archfiend of Ifnir
Graveyard Theft or Pure Recursion
This concept would run recursion spells like Boneyard Parley to steal the best things from opponents graveyards. In this case, Muldrotha allows us to consistently run targeted recursion from our graveyard, and we can focus our deck construction on the grave-robbing package. Because of Muldrotha's ability, we want to focus primarily on "theft on sticks" which we can repeatedly cast as needed, likely leaning heavily into Black.
Theft on Sticks examples
- Chainer, Dementia Master
- Dance of the Dead
- Scion of Darkness
- Chancellor of the Spires can both jump-start your mill value and borrow a winner from someone's yard. Sam has one.
