done some testing. I liked Dreadhorde Arcanist engine but unholy mother of Alucard, Yawgmoth is broken in this deck. You're a token generator, his first ability is "pay 1 life, sac another creature, an opposing creature gets permanent -1/-1 AND YOU DRAW A CARD for no mana at instant speed." He's like a giant Viscera Seer on some kind of highly illegal steroids that looks distinctly oil-like. On top of this, if you can have a young pyro live to turn 5, you can hardcast old pyro, get your 2 draws and 2 tokens, sac him with yoggers, draw a third card, then unearth him, basically digging 5 cards into your deck (or 10, if you feel like spending 6 life), making 5 tokens and potentially killing a creature for 4 mana and 1 life. Yawg Dawg is pretty much a walking Necropotence crossed with Skullclamp with protection from the best creature tribe in Modern. If this were yugioh he'd be emergency banworthy, at least back before I abandoned ship there.

Hey, looks good, nice start, but consider expanding on the main strategy?

Cards within the deck's budget to consider adding:

Overall excellent cards with Muldrotha:

Remora is one of the best sources of no mana cost repeatable draw in multiplayer Commander and it's great with Muldrotha's ability to play an enchantment from your graveyard. Don't pay Remora's upkeep cost, it's destroyed and can then be played from the graveyard to give you potential draw during your opponents turns. Risen and Coiling are excellent value especially Risen since Muldrotha, Yarok, Mulldrifter and Shriekmaw are Elementals. Stormtamer and Archmage can protect Muldrotha from removal by sacing them; then able play one of them from your graveyard.

Sakura can sac itself to ramp; it's a staple green creature in Commander especially with Meren. Wonder can give Muldrotha flying making her an attacking threat to do Commander damage. Buried Alive , Fauna Shaman , etc. are good here to tutor for and get Wonder into your graveyard. Reborn has lots of utility especially when you can repeatedly play it because after the third chapter it's destroyed. The third chapter can reanimate a creature or Planeswalker from any graveyard.

Sac outlets/payoffs:

Land upgrades:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Woodland Stream
  • Foul Orchard
  • Submerged Boneyard
  • Field of Ruin
  • Grave Betrayal
  • Font of Fertility
  • Pattern of Rebirth
  • Sylvan Caryatid
  • Manalith
  • Havengul Lich
  • Karametra's Acolyte
  • Kira, Great Glass-Spinner
  • Platinum Emperion
  • Savra, Queen of the Golgari
  • Torment of Hailfire
  • Overwhelming Forces
  • Dreamscape Artist

Modern huh? Unless you wanna do a sacrifice engine you're better going Rakdos or Mardu.

Vamps also wanna run pretty light on mana in either case. 3 or less cost = good, use 4+ mana cards very sparingly. Like Sanguine/Exquisite are simply too slow to be good imo.

Now, depending on your budget, you could do something like.....

4 Viscera Seer , 4 Bloodghast , 4 Blood Artist or Kalastria Highborn , 4 Cordial Vampire , maybe 4 Vampire Nocturnus or Vampire Lacerator and 2 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or Captivating Vampire , or maybe even 4 Dusk Legion Zealot or Gatekeeper of Malakir .

Or alternatively, consider that red gives you access to Stromkirk Captain who is hilarious with Vampire Nighthawk , Gifted Aetherborn and the new Vampire of the Dire Moon .

For hate spells, usable ones are things like Fatal Push , Lightning Bolt , Path to Exile , Terminate , Cast Down , Kolaghan's Command , or if you have money, Liliana of the Veil , Liliana, the Last Hope , and also to bring him up on this subject: Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord . Hand disruption is expensive, looking at Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , and Collective Brutality . But black has almost a monopoly on that.

3 other cards to bring up: Olivia Voldaren , Stromkirk Noble as he was always good but 5 color humans are a huge deal in the meta now, and Zealous Persecution .

Hope this gave you some insight. Welcome to the dark side.

Viscera Seer for scry on demand, Twilight Prophet for card advantage, with a little extra on the side, and Champion of Dusk for card draw, along with Diabolic Intent + Diabolic Tutor for general tutor. Also Well of Lost Dreams for card draw on life gain.

If you want faster, what you really should do is take a look at your mana cost of each card. Your average cmc is 3.69 and if you are looking for speed, you want to be somewhere around 2.5 or lower. Best way to do that is dump the least impactful of your highest cost creatures and put in mana dorks like Elvish Mystic and Fyndhorn Elves . You could also use some more interaction like Abrupt Decay , Nature's Claim , Toxic Deluge . I see that you already have an infinite combo, and also that you already have Protean Hulk how would you feel about using protean hulk to get a full infinite combo?

Hulk dies 1. Phyrexian Delver (returning Protean Hulk ) + Viscera Seer 2. Viscera Seer (sacrifice Protean Hulk ) 3. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Walking Ballista Opt. (in case of removal) 4. Viscera Seer (Phrexian Delver) 5. Viscera Seer (Protean Hulk) 6. Triskelion or Sylvan Safekeeper , Carrion Feeder

Snowmen1 The strategy I'm using focus solely on performing the combo. Every creature I use is a key piece of victory. So I do not think I would change a piece of victory for another one that would only generate value like Viscera Seer or Carrion Feeder . Strangleroot Geist is a fantastic card, but for my purpose I don't need atack. I just need the creature have undying, in that case it's better to pay 1B than GG, especially for using Geralf's Messenger which is BBB. But thanks for the suggestions, they look great synergies!

Painter's Hulk: Flash Hulk combo, grab Viscera Seer , a 1 cmc elf dork, and Body Snatcher . With Body Snatcher trigger on the stack sacrifice it, return Hulk to play, sacrifice Hulk. Grab Painter's Servant (name Blue) and Academy Rector , sacrifice Rector to grab Animate Dead and reanimate Hulk. Sacrifice Hulk to grab Birchlore Rangers , Pili-Pala , and Grand Architect . Use Pili-Pala to generate infinite blue mana, tap Birchlore and the other elf dork for a green, cast Thrasios. Draw whole deck and loop to win.

I don't know why you'd do this over just playing Shuffle Hulk, but I guess it's an option and it's definitely degenerate. Just hard to haste up Pili-Pala.

This is very similar to a deck I worked on with someone else https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/16-06-19-gb-undying/. It is a very cool deck and I never thought of running hapatra, seems sweet as a controlling draw combo. Just those 2 cards together make me excited about this deck again, partly because this interraction doesnt use the graveyard. Although this deck is very super sweet, in testing with the deck I made, there needs to be a different approach or better undying creatures printed for the deck to be really good. I strongly suggest you play Retribution of the Ancients , I have a full explanation of why on my deck description. also with undying creatures, it is nice to upgrade them and just swing in, so I recommend some combination of Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder . those in conjunction with retribution let you machine gun creatures down. also I noticed you dont have Strangleroot Geist , Id replace your Butcher Ghoul with them. Anyways, cool deck! +1
