WUBRG87 thanks for those, I didnt even think about Diabolic Servitude and how it would work with Yarok. Thats awesome! Farhaven Elf is definitely going in. As far as Risen Reef and Zendikar's Roil , I am having a hard time figuring out what to pull to replace them with, what do you think?

I tried cutting back a few of the higher costed stuff i had the other night, but maybe i need to a little bit more. As for your list though; I like it! I dont think Animate Dead works with Yarok, though. You cant enchant two creatures with the same enchantment. Stupid,i know. Thats why i run Diabolic Servitude instead. It'll get back two creatures. Basically double animate dead without the small draw back of -1/-0. Nice list though!!

Il tuo piano di gioco è usare tanto ramp per tirare Muldrotha sul campo, dopodiché, cercare di tenerlo sul campo per il resto della partita.

Per il ramp ti consiglio:

Per la proteggere Muldrotha, ti consiglierei queste:

Un altra strategia per assicurarti di non dover pagare la Commander Tax per rigiocare Muldrotha è di rigiocarla dal cimitero. Meglio ancora se quelle carte possono a loro volta essere rigiocate dal cimitero con Muldrotha:

Ti consiglio di stare più in curva e di tagliare Slum Reaper , visto che ci sono opzioni che costano meno mana e fanno la stessa cosa: Fleshbag Marauder , Merciless Executioner e Plaguecrafter .

Carte che ti permettono di riprendere altre carte dal cimitero in mano:

  • Eternal Witness , Skullwinder e Nyx Weaver ti permettono di riprenderti carte utili, in modo da poter sforare il limite di un solo permanente per tipo dal cimitero. Inoltre, così puoi riprendere anche Instant e Sorcery, a cui normalmente non avresti più accesso una volta usate.

Ti suggerisco una combo interessante, il Flash Hulk . Consiste nel poter giocare e subito sacrificare il Protean Hulk già dal turno due per poi poterti andare a cercare creature nel mazzo che ti permettano di fare una combo infinita e vincere. Se cerchi online dovresti trovare fonti a sufficienza. Comunque, anche solo il Protean Hulk da solo è una grande inclusione.

Inoltre, una carta davvero buffa da poter giocare nella tua combinazione di colori: Villainous Wealth .

Un'altra carta per salvarti il cimitero da effetti come Bojuka Bog : Perpetual Timepiece .

Tra le terre che sono fortissime nel tuo mazzo ci sono anche: - Cabal Coffers insieme a Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . - Alchemist's Refuge e Emergence Zone per poter giocare creature e altre cose ad instant speed. - Wasteland è una seconda Strip Mine . - Lotus Vale e Lotus Field sono più o meno ramp, ma anche un buon modo per fare molto mana se avessi il modo di stapparle. Magari con Deserted Temple , a cui sta anche simpatica Cabal Coffers , comunque. - Glacial Chasm è un piano di riserva che ti costa solo 2 punti vita a turno, a patto di rigiocarla sempre dal cimitero tutti i turni.

Tra le carte che ti suggerisco di togliere ci sono:

How do you feel about using Diabolic Servitude as opposed to Rise from the Grave ? Or even a Whip of Erebos ?

Vampiric Tutor and Expedition Map are some common tutors. Liliana Vess?

Mind Stone / Hedron Archive / cycling lands give you some flexibility against screw/flood

Blood Speaker is an option if you want an expensive but repeatable demon tutor

Do Dread Return / Ever After serve you better than the various reanimation enchantments? (Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, Necromancy, Diabolic Servitude)

Grim Affliction is too limited, even with a planeswalker commander

Merciless Executioner is redundant with enough tutors

Vampiric Rites / Mind Slash are both nice if you have a Reassembling Skeleton / gravecrawler, but can be do-nothing if you dont have a supply of tokens

Shriekmaw can be awkward, depending on the decks you're facing

So Stitch Together (and Timmerian Fiends aren't Modern legal. - So you'll have to decide whether you really want to go Modern or Legacy or budget/casual Legacy. If you go either of the Legacy routes, Diabolic Servitude is probably the card you're after. That or Exhume. However, if you're looking to to do a 'Buried Alive' in Modern sort of build, that's going to be a little more difficult. It won't be a very viable deck in Modern if you're only able to put high CMC creatures from your graveyard on top of your library (especially without a great mana ramp) - you're still sticking yourself with the mana cost, which really defeats the purpose of milling yourself out - there are plenty of tutor spells that can put a card into your hand for 5CMC or less (IE - Traumatize's cost). That is to say - there are more efficient means of putting a specific card in your hand. It's not that there aren't cards in Modern that can bring your creatures back from your graveyard to the battlefield, it's that their CMC is too high to make a good strategy in the format. You've just got to be faster. A few such spells, should you decide you want to explore your options: Immortal Servitude, Isareth the Awakener, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Postmortem Lunge, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Gravedigger, Unburial Rites - there more - I'm sure you can figure out how to find some more.

Things that put stuff from your graveyard on top of your library are a dime a dozen - Mortuary Mire, for example, is cheap to buy for a reason. You need to be very specific about what you want your deck to do. It's easy to think you can do more than there's room for.

I feel obligated to let you know that what brought me to your deck is that this is one of the only Modern decks on Tappedout with painful quandry - a spell that is tantalizing in power and downright sour in CMC. There are so many cards like it in black, especially, and I'm particularly keen to see any deck that attempts to play them. I think there's no way around ramping into such high CMC spells and still expect to hit a wincon within Modern's turn/time-frame. Since there's almost no ramp in black and not in blue either, the best ramp option in is to run green. I'm not advocating for green here, only pointing out that it might be necessary, depending on what you want to to do. Keep in mind - I don't play control decks - I don't like them because I think they're reactionary, and therefore prone to limitations in responding to threats are instant speed. Just my take.
