Devious Cover-Up Discussion

Nice unique take on Muldrotha! For starters, I would try to cut as many nonpermanents as possible because the less of those, the more cards you can cast with Muldrotha. I would take out Counterspell, Devious Cover-Up, and Price of Fame and replace them with cards like Lunar Force and Decree of Silence or even Siren Stormtamer and Kheru Spellsnatcher. You could also replace them with plain removal like Pernicious Deed, Oblivion Stone, Hostage Taker, etc. However, I very much like Spelljack because it is so on theme with the deck, keep it in! In terms of ramp, Cultivate and Explosive Vegetation are great choices, but you can get by with using Sakura-Tribe Elder, Wayfarer's Bauble, Khalni Heart Expedition, The Mending of Dominaria for your ramp package. These are useful because, once again, they are repeatable. I would also cut the Llanowar Elves if you add enough other ramp cards. Archaeomancer can be upgraded for Eternal Witness. Bond of Insight, Merfolk Secretkeeper, and Mire Triton feel a little out of place because they only mill a few cards. If you want big mill spells I would put in Mind Funeral and Traumatize and for permanents that mill, Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, Stitcher's Supplier, and Dreamborn Muse from your sideboard are all great cards and to top it all off Mesmeric Orb is a terrific card. If you want more instant and sorcery recurral The Mirari Conjecture is great for that. I'm not sure what Deadeye Navigator and Peregrine Drake are doing for you when they are on their own. Evil Twin, and any cards that copy other creatures are flavorful additions. Lastly, why not just steal their permanents when you can also steal their turns with Mindslaver. I hope my ideas have helped, and I hope you keep improving this deck!

Rancid Earth is not a good main deck card. It is useful versus tron and the rare three-plus colors decks. Kick out void barrier, which does next to nothing in the deck from the sideboard and just put the 4 copies of rancid earth in the sb.
Additionally, Accumulated Knowledge is the best card draw for this type deck. - 1 whispers of the muse, -2 void snare - 1 trespasser's curse for 4 knowledge.
Since I already suggested one curse to go away, I would suggest to remove the other for a copy of counterspell or a removal. A second copy of Devious Cover-Up would be nice just in case.
Finally, having both echoing decay and justice is not very good, since they do the same job and I cannot imagine having to use that effect on turn 2 to justify decay. Sub the decay for another copy of the deck's namesake card. Additionally, you may think to include some copies of Gurmag Angler to finish the game faster.

Thanks Oblong for the tip with Ashiok's Erasure, I've got a Devious Cover-Up floating around that I can replace it with. Imprisoned in the Moon does work really well with the deck, so I'll see if I can get my hands on one. I'll be doing a bit of research on madness cards too, thanks for the advice!

Just a few things I noticed. Ashiok's Erasure isn't that great in commander as you only get one copy of each card and in order for it to be a Commander lock, the owner of the commander would need to allow their commander to be exiled. Consider putting in Devious Cover-Up instead because you'll have some cards in your grave that you've discarded with Chromium that you'll be able to shuffle back into your deck. If you really want to lock down a commander, consider Imprisoned in the Moon as a replacement also.
Loving the synergy with Brought Back and Chromium. More of that! you could also try leaning into the discard outlet. Lots of good Madness in black.

There is a lot of things in this deck that I see can be upgraded or removed.
First, I'll suggest some cards you could put in.
More ways to stop the opponent's creatures would help. Lawmage's Binding , Frogify , and Kasmina's Transmutation stop creatures from using their abilities. Immolating Glare , Conclave Tribunal and Path to Exile are also things you should consider.
Some cards to cut would be:
Hope this helps!

You’re playing blue. Counterspells are what basically defines the colour. I recommend to add a few more: Counterspell , Negate and Rewind are the best ones on a budget and are a must for any blue deck for me. Devious Cover-Up may be able to bring back cards but you shuffle them into your library making hard to recast them and I believe you’ll find better success with the cheaper ones above.
