You are certainly right with Command Beacon and Bear Umbra , they 100% deserve a spot here. And I'm thinking I might add Jeweled Lotus too, now that I think about it.

The other cards are also very good, but most of them wouldn't work in my table. The froggy and counters were at some point in my maybeboard, but they just end up being not useful (because of how we play).

Bear Umbra is worth its weight in gold here. It protects Muldrotha similar to Kaya's Ghostform but the land untap immediately pays for itself, allows for some bonkers turns, and makes it easy to hold up mana for answers.

Glen Elendra Archmage and Siren Stormtamer deserve spots for a reusable counterspell suite. Spore Frog deserves a spot for repeatable fogs too.

Command Beacon ensures you'll never pay commander tax on Muldy. Crystal Vein / Ancient Tomb are excellent pieces of ramp here. Cephalid Coliseum is a nice draw engine.

I'd also suggest more ramp that costs or less (so no Thran Dynamo). Arcane Signet , Dimir Signet , Talisman of Dominance , and the other signets/talismans. Lotus Petal is another good one here.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite

Bear Umbra is really good here. It's insurance for Muldy similar to Kaya's Ghostform but the land untap pays for itself and lets you push your own gameplan while holding up mana for answers (or just a nuts 2nd main). One of my favorite cards in my list tbh.

If you want more of a buff voltron Lathril maybe switch out Incubation Druid and Heedless One for Immaculate Magistrate and Timberwatch Elf Those guys also can go off twice per turn with Copperhorn Scout

Crown of Skemfar Eldrazi Conscription and Bear Umbra are always good too if you're looking to take out beaters and focus on Lathril's abilities

Have you considered Bear Umbra and Sarkhan's Triumph ? Once you have Bear Umbra in your hand you can then use Sarkhan's Triumph to search for Hellkite Charger, put it and BU on the Battlefield and have an infinite combo.

May I suggest Rhythm of the Wild and Cindervines ? The Former is an upgrade on Fires of Yavimaya and the latter deals damage each time your opponents cast a spell with an added destroy target artifact or enchantment bonus.

I think you should go all in on eggs. That would mean adding Nesting Dragon straight into your deck. to get extra landfall activations I'd recommend lands for sacrificing to get basic lands. These lands include, but are not limited to, Evolving Wilds , Fabled Passage and Naya Panorama .

Other cards you can use to get lands include, but are not limited to, Armillary Sphere and Expedition Map . These cards can be reused if you can find spots for artifacts such as Cranial Archive and Elixir of Immortality . Walking Atlas will allow you to play an extra land each turn. These artifacts will also help to boost the number of artifacts you need to take advantage of Freejam Tyrant's improvise ability.

Also, look at more White, Red and Green cards that have the Changeling ability. They count as EVERY creature type.

With all the eggs needing to get bumped off you may want to consider any combination of Dragon Broodmother , Hellkite Hatchling , Predator Dragon , Preyseizer Dragon and Voracious Dragon . Any one of these can replace Descent of the Dragons. Though with Voracious Dragon you may want to consider finding space for more goblins.

I hope this was both a short and long term help.

Happy Hunting!

Deck looks fun and good so far! I like it. I have a comment to start. Tahngarth's ability works similarly to Kaalia of the Vast in the sense that there is no attack trigger, so for things like Bear Umbra the ability does not trigger when you give him to other players to attack, so it's really only useful on other creatures.

Interestingly enough, even if you kept him on an opponent's field for a full turn cycle, this actually is bad! Since they control Tahngarth, they will get the benefit, due to the card's wording. You only control the things attached to Tahngarth, so since Bear Umbra gives the ability to Tahngarth's text, the opponent would get to untap lands.

All this ^^^ was more just of interest rather than general advice.

Moving on, in your OTHER category. You have a LOT of incentives to get people to not attack you, too many in fact. I'll tell you which ones I think are best, but it's up to your personal preference which ones to cut. I think the Curse of Predation , Curse of Disturbance , Bloodthirsty Blade , Frenzied Saddlebrute , Disrupt Decorum , Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Shiny Impetus , Xantcha, Sleeper Agent , and Goblin Spymaster are the best personally, as they are the most effective at goading.

I have already explained Bear Umbra , and the same goes for Sword of the Animist , since there aren't attack triggers. I think that Banshee's Blade is not good compared to your other cards.

I think Dimir House Guard is really not that great, and you have enough other tutors to get Tahngarth.

Cunning Rhetoric is a fabulous card for this deck (also in general, holy moly I'm glad I know about this card now). Your monarch cards might not be that great to have, but I think it's worth play-testing. I think it might make it hard for you, since you can't attack a person who is the monarch for fear that they will attack you, although this can be counteracted through goad cards.

Otherwise, I think this deck is pretty cool, and I approve of it.
