Nice, as well as the other additions you've got planned I'd definitely consider Bane of Progress - by the time you cast it this deck probably doesn't care about losing its enchantments or artifacts (honestly not sure you even need a Sol Ring, you're better getting more mana dorks like Tangled Florahedron  Flip) but it will annihilate some other strategies. Plus you ARE in green which is full of Regrowth effects that are pretty on-theme of you're desperate to get stuff back! The deck is maybe a little lacking in non-creature removal for me, simply as without blue you may struggle to interact with combo pieces. Thankfully Golgari has this in spades with cards such as Abrupt Decay, Binding the Old Gods, Putrefy and Culling Ritual/Maelstrom Pulse. Those last two are also ways to wipe all your saprolings if you don't have a sac outlet, something the deck might want more of it you're planning on them all dying to kill with drain effects - free ones with upside like Viscera Seer are obviously the best! Either would be better than Mandate for you here - that's really for when you are sure you'll have a big dude and need him to get in. All too often I think you'll find it only blows up Saprolings and if you're lucky some other small tokens opponents have, and if you don't have a creature to target it does nothing. Willowdusk is really worth considering if you're gaining life BTW, she'll quickly create big threats to distract people from what's actually going to win you the game. Also Vraska is a way better planeswalker than Ob Nixilis, I'd probably go with her Golgari Queen iteration but The Unseen is ok too. Finally you can always upgrade the lands but TBH basics will probably be fine here for the most part, especially given your ramp choices (could include Kodama's Reach in that package too?).

Remove:
4x Mortality Spear
2x Forest

Add:
1x Academy Manufactor
3x Binding the Old Gods
2x Boseiju, Who Endures

Also, manabase updated to reflect reality a little better.


I hate removing instants, but having crucial removal spells that can be found with Trail of Crumbs is important. It might be better to keep a pair of Mortality Spear in or go to 4x Wicked Wolf and replace the other three with Caustic Caterpillar or Green Slime, but testing will tell.

Deck is almost complete.

Still need to obtain Commander's Sphere and Triumphant Reckoning

Would like to sub in Binding the Old Gods.

Need to do more play testing, but from what I've done so far it is looking good.

It's expensive, but Jeweled Lotus is amazing in Muldrotha. You can fetch it with Urza's Saga and recur it.

Speaking of Sagas, they're amazing in muldrotha, I run The Cruelty of Gix, Binding the Old Gods, The Phasing of Zhalfir, Phyrexian Scriptures, and I am testing out The War in Heaven. Those probably would work better than Oblivion Stone.

38 lands is a bit high, you can probably get away with 34-35, even 33 if you're willing to invest in Mana Crypt and Mana Vault.

In my hands, Muldrotha has been running better as a combo cEDH list. I have tried to build it other ways and it was honestly either too slow or too samey to my Zegana and Miirym lists. I think combo would work better, Muldrotha loves self mill and that can act as a sort of turbo way to draw through your deck.

If you're wanting to stick to ramp, you're going to need to speed it up

A good ramp package I use in U/G and U/G/X lists, tweaked for Muldrotha:

1 drop: 1-3

Sol Ring

sometimes Birds of Paradise and other related mana guys

for Muldrotha: Expedition Map and Wayfarer's Bauble will do wonders

2 drop: ~6

Arcane Signet

Bloom Tender: I play this in almost every 3+ color list

Farseek

Three Visits

Nature's Lore

Muldrotha Specific: Sakura-Tribe Elder, Skull Prophet, Rootcoil Creeper

3 drop: 1-2

Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath: hilarious to recur every turn

Cultivate, Harrow, Springbloom Druid are all good too

You will also want some more heavier hitters up top, generally, in ramp heavy decks I will run anywhere from 8 to 15 (depending on how well I ramp). I want to be able to have a big finisher and keep them going in Ramp lists (you can see these 2 to see what I mean: Nature's Revenge (not recognized by brackets for some reason) and Baby Dwagon Ehhhhhh?, both are very powerful and keep the pressure up, I rarely have an issue with either too many big guys and not enough ramp.

Sire of Stagnation

Toxrill, the Corrosive

Koma, Cosmos Serpent

I've been loving the ancient dragons

The other Jin-Gitaxias is also pretty potent

Here is my list if it helps give any ideas to help yours: The Circle of Life

Note:

Massacre Girl= Primaris Eliminator

Noxious Gearhulk= Necron Deathmark

The Eldest Reborn = The War in Heaven

I don't think I have put the combos down in the description yet but I can explain them if you want to know. Hope this helps!

TheoryCrafter Good suggestions, thank you. I've tried both Era of Enlightenment  Flip and Medomai's Prophecy and liked them both. I am committed to Reason / Believe though, most wins go through its third ability.

I've recently been testing dropping black and replacing Binding the Old Gods with The Phasing of Zhalfir. I'm liking that a lot, along with Love Song of Night and Day.

multimedia on Muldrotha Snow: The Frozen Forest

5 months ago

Hey, well done with such a low budget, The Undead Forest is a cool deck name. Interesting deck idea for your first Commander deck with Muldrotha, but why snow? Weathered Runestone completely shuts down Muldrotha.

Marit Lage's Slumber, Jorn, God of Winter  Flip, Priest of the Haunted Edge, Blood on the Snow, Ice-Fang Coatl these are some reasons to play snow with Muldrotha. Iceberg Cancrix can repeatable self-mill and that's a good effect with Muldrotha. Pilfering Hawk can be repeatable loot which gets cards into your graveyard. Unfortunately, this isn't many cards.

Draugr Necromancer is a good card with snow, but it doesn't have much interaction with Muldrotha. Dead of Winter is another good card with snow, but Muldrotha is not a snow creature. Narfi, Betrayer King is fine, able to reanimate itself with snow, but he's support for snow not really a reason to play snow.


Some advice to consider is to play nonsnow cards that can put snow-covered permanents (lands) onto the battlefield to meet the snow requirement for snow cards without playing lots of unnecessary snow creatures. The best way to get snow permanents is with snow-covered lands. You really don't need lots of other subpar snow creatures here.

All these creatures could be cut to improve your deck.


Instead of playing lots of lesser snow creatures, play just the better snow creatures here?

Use other deck slots for cards that can search for and get snow-covered lands onto the battlefield?

Consider adding some spells that are not permanents that can search for and put snow-covered lands onto the battlefield?

Cards that can get snow-covered lands into your hand as well as get cards into your graveyard can be helpful with Muldrotha.

Could also add some snow mana rocks and mana dorks?

Land ramp for snow-covered lands and mana from mana rocks is more ramp which also helps to cast 6 mana Muldrotha as well as having more mana to cast permanents from your graveyard when you control Muldrotha.


Example of a budget more refined creature base with snow.

Good luck with your deck.

Thank you for bringing attention to Power Conduit! I've been trying for a while to make a competitive build with Song of Freyalise, The First Iroan Games, and Binding the Old Gods but they just depend too much on having Conduit in the opening hand. I hadn't even thought of using it with Urza's Saga, but now it seems so obvious.
