Peregrine Drake seems interesting as a card that generates mana. It’s nice that it untaps your lands which makes the colored requirements afterwards easier and it seems actually better in most cases than the Deranged Hermit when you’re actually going off with the Nim Deathmantle. Casting it is “free”, and when you sac it to either of the altars it generates 1 or 2 mana per cycle. The only strike against it compared to Deranged Hermit is that the squirrels are actually pretty useful even if you don’t have the deathmantle, allowing some busted turns without necessarily going infinite.

Thanks for the suggestion, i think they can live in the same deck without too many problems, though having too much of the combo-only cards makes the deck a little bit weaker.

Not too sure about how the drake combos with the other 2 cards, you still need one of the altars for the Nezumi Graverobber, and for the Journey to Eternity  Flip you need Ashnod's Altar specifically right?

Agree with possible cuts (as i stated under “cut-considerations” :))

Pikobyte & xJonahSlayerx: Plaguecrafter is a strict upgrade to Fleshbag Marauder (not yet available on T/O, basically: if a player can’t sac a creature, they discard), aside from that and Underrealm Lich i don’t see much for us, you? I expected more from golgari + dimir tbh.

Fingers crossed for Simic in the next set, but i’m not holding my breath because it’s not GY oriented from what i remember.

Advisorofdark it’s a good suggestion. I thought it would be too expensive, but i can always see if i can trade for it with someone. Added to main, and considerations, thanks!

Said on Sultai Control...


Not sure about Thought Erasure - seems a bit weak. I would probably go for another Search for azcanta and fill out the Vraska's Contempt. Maybe a hard to kill threat, or some graveyard shenanigans should come in here. Could it be time for Patient Rebuilding?!

Advisorofdark thanks for the suggestion you gave Pikobyte, Pattern of Rebirth seems bonkers! Need to get my hands on one of those :D

If you’ve got any time, would you mind looking my deck over?

September 18, 2018 4:50 p.m.

Pikobyte i thought you meant a different way of testing so i was curious, but this makes sense ;)

Unfortunately i don’t play as much commander since i prefer drafting when i get to go to the lgs.

Pikobyte as multimedia mentioned:

  1. Sac hulk, fetch Phyrexian Delver + Viscera Seer

  2. Sac delver, get hulk

  3. Sac hulk, get mika + ballista

  4. Profit

The combination of cards fits into the deck very well i think (triskelion wouldn’t really have any other business being here), but i’m unsure of whether i want the combo like that. Aside from that Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is pretty expensive. Protean Hulk and Flash are cool enough to maybe want regardless though, i added those as maybes.

You could be right regarding the ramp / explore-effects / ramunap. How do you test your deck in commander? I never really have and mostly only theorized. World Shaper was recommended earlier too, it could be that i should give the card a chance, since it just feels lame on the surface, but i’ve never seen it in action in a GY centered deck and i guess with sac outlets it can be a big deal. Added to maybes!

September 10, 2018 6:10 a.m.


Mikaeus + sac + walk ball is because that’s fetchable with protean hulk combo i suppose (see multimedia’s explanatiom above).

Very cool that you sleeved it up. I’ll admit to my deck having very little actual gameplay (played 6-7 matches with it), unfortunately i can’t play that much. Any cards in particular you’d swap for others? I can’t really just sleeve up yours unfortunately because i don’t have a large collection. All these cards i have to actually trade for or buy.


Thx for commenting, appreciate it! The concept behind Ramunap Excavator is that he allows me to do what muldrotha allows me to do more often. The card is also better than muldrotha’s effect when i have a card like Azusa, Lost but Seeking because then i can play multiple lands from the GY instead of just one which muldrotha won’t allow. Any experience with worldshaper? Could be nice but seems expensive, although the dies trigger seems easily powerful if you can activate it at will. Deadbridge chant seems too expensive for what it does. Do u have your own muldrotha/sultai deck?

Thanks! Makes sense, and powerful combo indeed. Not too much of a fan of ballista + mikaeus, but the combo is clever.

Fauna Shaman and/or Birthing Pod sound like great additions because of the tutor abilities. I’ll try and get someone to trade them, they’re a lot of fun and can gain me access more easily to silver bullets like Spore Frog, Deranged Hermit, Caustic Caterpillar and Shriekmaw.

Pikobyte if you’re considering Seal of Doom you should also consider Sinister Concoction. Costs a card, but is cheaper to activate, hits all creatures and gets 2 extra cards in the yard. All in all more synergistic and powerful i feel, though i haven’t actually played it yet.

+1 for liliana’s quote :’D

September 8, 2018 6:03 a.m.

This might actually work! Fdint’t think anyone would do something witht the challenge, but this would probably work :D

Adding something that destroys lands is pretty powerful too i think, consider something like Sundering Titan. If they take it and you blink it that’s game (cause you’ve got a blinker and a titan and no-one has lands). If they take the blinker you’re still fine.

+1 :)

Said on reyhan infect...


Hey, nice to see an infect commander list on here. Not sure if you’re willing to choose a different commander, because i think Saskia the Unyielding or Atraxa, Praetors' Voice might be better suited as infect commanders as well as giving you access to more colors. Blue is especially nice since it gives you cards like Blighted Agent and clones.

Nim Deathmantle and Mimic Vat might be nice ways to make sure you always have an infect creature to play with.

Viridian Corrupter is a great way to gain access to poison creatures, while preventing others from building up.

Llanowar Reborn and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood are nice lands with your +1 counter theme

Consider Golgari Signet to ramp and fix your mana.

Good luck!

Cheers! (Though you didn’t +1 yet ;)) i’m definitely going to try Night Incarnate, great addition i think. I think High Market is unnecessary with the two altars i’m already running? Or is there a particular reason to run it? Command Beacon is definitely on my wants list already, just not finding anyone to trade with though. I might cut Dreamborn Muse/Bounty of the Luxa/Courser of Kruphix i think.


Thanks for upvoting and commenting. Lots of new things i hadn’t come across yet. Flash + Protean Hulk is new to me, can you explain how it would work? Mindslicer seems mean as hell, especially after a Cyclonic Rift. Birthing Pod could work but i’m unsure whether it would require me to twist my deck too much. Buried Alive is a nice cheap replacement for Intuition i suppose, and i’m running more reanimation than i thought i was.

All in all some great suggestions and i’m likely to pick up some of them, cheers to both of you.

Nice deck and thanks for explaining some of the wincons! Nice to see a different take on an awesome commander, +1. I could use some feedback / insight for my own list as well. Let me know what you think: Muldrotha, Tides of Madness (1 combo)

Suggestions: I really enjoy the Seal of Removal in my deck, also Dreamborn Muse seems like a good fit for you. Would recommend.

With regards to mystic remora, are people not playing enough noncreatures or are they playing around its cost? And how has Bear Umbra been?
