Foundation Breaker

Creature — Elemental

When this enters the battlefield, you may destroy target artifact or enchantment.

Evoke (You may cast this spell for its evoke cost. If you do, it's sacrificed when it enters the battlefield.)

ACapo18 Been looking for a groovy golgari aristocrats deck, seems good! I would swap Naturalize for Foundation Breaker or Haywire Mite. A lot of the land fetching ramp is slow as well, swapping in mana dorks or things like Dawntreader Elk and Diligent Farmhand will increase creature count. :) Cheers!

Foundation Breaker, Briarhorn, and Rootwire Amalgam could be good fits for this- having the same artifact/enchantment removal but also triggering some of your "stuff dies" cards. Briarhorn could be fun to play on someone else's turn since it provides a buff and an additional goad with Bhaal.

For example, Foundation Breaker becomes a sorcery speed Krosan Grip overnight. That doesn’t seem like the answer to the problem.

DreadKhan on 100 cards for Meren

9 months ago

One pattern I noticed with Meren is that she's pretty bad if you don't have a creature to get back, she's just a clunky body that does nothing if your graveyard is empty. That's part of why I don't like fast ramp in Meren, even in fairly high power (unless you're in cEDH and barely care about the Commander) all it does it get me a 3/4 on the board, and it's also going to risk being wiped or removed early. Thus, keep an eye out for small creatures that can sacrifice themselves or other creatures. Casual Meren usually wants to farm XP to an extent, using something like Fleshbag Marauder as mentioned, or the various Sakura Tribe Elder knock-offs, will let your Meren start working right from the get go. Another idea is to use self-mill effects, there are quite a few in Golgari, but I think you'd want to run a much high creature count to make self-mill more realistic. My Meren deck presently has 57 creatures in the 99, and that doesn't feel excessive because my Commander only interacts with other creatures. You might also take a look at Evoke creatures like Shriekmaw and Foundation Breaker, these can be evoked more than once with Meren, generating XP while policing the board. There are also weird old cards like Hell's Caretaker that farms XP (but can also reanimate something huge at the cost of a token). I think as your power level goes up the value of farming XP goes down, but this can be offset by including some of the game ending tutors I mentioned previously.

If you want to stick to Casual Meren, I always loved Street Wraith when I drew it early, it doesn't have to hit the battlefield to work with Meren, since getting it back to hand lets you draw another card. I wouldn't use it outside Casual, but it's a fun trick.

Ritual of the Machine and Helm of Possession offer Golgari decks an option they typically lack, that of just stealing something. This is useful vs Commanders of some decks, but it's also good vs big stuff that defies removal somehow. Neither is a really high power card, but both feel pretty good at lower and mid power.

i see no synergy in your deck. you got some ramp artifact, ramp sorceries, ramp creatures, ramp enchantments, but nothing really synergizes. if you put all ramp into 1 of those, your deck gets alot better.

id say go for creatures, so you can end with a nice overrun effect. So grab all the 1 mana elfs that produce mana, your missing Boreal Druid, Joraga Treespeaker. Then get Priest of Titania, taps for all elfs.

For removal, run creatures aswell, id get Foundation Breaker, Druid of Purification, Bane of Progress, Haywire Mite, Reclamation Sage, Voracious Hydra, Acidic Slime, Duplicant, Kogla, the Titan Ape, Meteor Golem, Terastodon, Woodfall Primus, Ulvenwald Tracker

For draw, run creatures aswell (your starting to see a synergie?) Beast Whisperer, Voice of Many, Toski, Bearer of Secrets, Augur of Autumn

for ramp you have the mana dorks, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Fertilid, Wood Elves Elvish Pioneer, Primeval Herald, Skyshroud Ranger, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds

For bombs, id run creatures that already have trample, Defiler of Vigor, Neverwinter Hydra, Ochre Jelly, Kalonian Hydra, Aberrant, Craterhoof Behemoth and a tutor: Fierce Empath

some other cards i would consider Champion of Lambholt (makes your creatures unblockable, Saryth, the Viper's Fang hexproof untapped, deathtouch when attacking (insanely powerfull with big trample creature).

non creatures i would run: Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Skullclamp, Return of the Wildspeaker, Inspiring Call, Harmonize, Rishkar's Expertise maybe a few things like Fade from History, Beast Within, Nature's Claim, Collector Ouphe is also really strong since you will be running creatures

Sure, the mana doubling can be fun, but is it really needed? your commander is gonna be 1-2 punching people, doubling your mana is gonna waste a turn, and you cant do alot with the mana other then empty your hand, and then you get boardwiped and your sent back to your childhood. Id cut them, and just get more consistency out of your deck

multimedia on Muldrotha: Budget Elemental Tribe!

1 year ago

Hey, it sucks when opponents gang up on you, Disk and Deed unfortunately have that negative effect. At least you got to see Urza eliminated before you lost :)

If playing Disk and Deed then think of everything else in your deck as expendable, doesn't matter if all your stuff dies because all opponents will too. Muldrotha gives you this flexibility and by adding totem armor effects then Muldrotha can be saved from Disk or Deed if she's enchanted before they pop.

You're slowly removing Elementals making your deck Elementals in flavor, but not much else for the tribe or game play. Risen Reef is the only reason here be Elemental tribal and while it's a good card, it's not good enough to stick to Elementals.

  • Cavalier of Night, Cavalier of Gales, Cavalier of Thorns
  • Risen Reef
  • Mulldrifter, Foundation Breaker, Shriekmaw

These Elementals are good because for what they do there's not other better budget cards that are not an Elemental that could replace them. Playing an Elemental because it's an Elemental instead of a better budget card is not worth it when you don't have much Elemental tribal synergy. Some examples:

Sac outlets are how you can abuse Muldrotha ability with creatures, casting the same creature from your graveyard over many turns. Sac outlets can do more for Muldrotha strategy then some Elementals.


If you're against Eldrazi Titans then consider an exile creature effect because indestructible doesn't stop it and the Titan is gone for good, doesn't ever enter the graveyard after it's removed.

These are three options, Tear is best because kicked it can exile any nonland permanent. Resculpt and Shift are only two mana to exile a creature. The drawback of your opponent getting a creature afterwards is minimal because you'll be removing something much better. Pair any of these instants with Eternal Witness for a repeatable effect with Muldrotha. Either one of these could replace Return to Nature?

Another budget way to deal with an Eldrazi Titan is to it steal from your opponent and then wreck that player with annihilator. Steal a player's Commander and keep control it until Sower is removed. Stealing Sheoldred can be nasty since reanimation is quite good with Muldrotha. Sower is better because with any sac outlet that can sac a creature you can sac your opponent's creature you stole, it dies goes back to that player's graveyard or Command Zone and then you can sac Sower to repeat with Muldrotha. Sower could replace Forgotten Ancient?

Fauna adds a creature toolbox repeatable effect that can also fuel graveyard strategies for Muldrotha. The toolbox can be helpful because you have several creatures who are much better than the others. Fuana is also good with Wonder and Brawn as creatures to discard who want to be in your graveyard. Fauna could replace Icon of Ancestry?

Really consider cutting some basic Forests for more budget dual lands that have interaction with Forests or lots of basic lands? The allied Check lands have been reprinted in latest set Dominaria Remastered, now is the best time to get them since each are down to less than $4.

Welcome to the club, Mattzr01!

The deck description says it came from the Commander's Quarters YouTube channel. Is it a direct copy, or did you use that deck as inspiration? What lines of play are used or recommended in the video?

If the intent is to win by using Door to Nothingness on each opponent, you want to focus heavily on generating mana and slowing the game down. Since you need two mana of each color and a specific card in play to knock out an opponent, your immediate concerns should be reaching those marks. Ramp, color fixing, and card draw and tutoring should make up most of your early game, using your control elements to protect your key cards and prevent an opponent from getting too far ahead.

On the subject of control, don't waste your control effects on trivial threats. Cast your Plaguecrafter or Foundation Breaker or Austere Command or whatever when you see a major threat or obstacle that must be removed for you to win. Knowing the difference between an annoyance that can played around and a kill-on-sight card/combo is critical for slower decks.

I understand and respect that you're not looking for card suggestions with this thread, but there are a few cards in there that I don't fully see the purpose for. They don't appear to help you win in any significant way, unless I'm missing a combo or something.

Above all, have fun with it!

multimedia on Muldrotha: Budget Elemental Tribe!

1 year ago

Hey, just saw your update. Something to think about for gameplay, is it more important to you to have Muldrotha on the battlefield or many Elementals? Having both is asking too much because Muldrotha requires much setup and Elementals don't provide that setup. Muldrotha is a go-tall Commander, but you're playing as go-wide with many small Elementals. This conflict of what Muldrotha wants and what the rest of your deck is doing is most likely hindering gameplay.

Your deck is not built to go-wide with Elementals because you don't have any Elemental tribal lords, anthem effects and no early game Elemental token sources to flood the battlefield with Elementals. Lords are needed to make little Elementals actual good attackers so that you can swarm opponent. You're best attackers other than Muldrotha when it has evasion are the Elementals who can grow themselves. These Elementals are go-tall strategy not go-wide, having a large power/toughness Elemental for an attacker, instead of many little Elementals.

You're not going to like my next suggestions, but now that you've seen that your deck is struggling, some changes could help? My advice is build your deck first to maximize Muldrotha and second add in Elementals after doing so? Cut the weaker Elementals for more Muldrotha synergy especially draw/self-mill, ramp, protection and removal? Just play the better Elementals? I'm not suggesting to change your deck strategies, keep Elementals, +1/+1 counters and proliferate, but tone them down in favor of Muldrotha?


An example of a streamline Elemental base using current Elementals (by CMC):

I left Slitherwisp off the list because you don't have any other cards with flash? Without other cards with flash, Slitherwisp isn't worth a deck spot. Now you could add cards to give spells flash, but even so Muldrotha doesn't work with flash since you can only during your turn cast permanents from your graveyard.

Flash doesn't get around this Muldrotha restriction. You can flash at any point during your turn, but not on opponent's turns which defeats the purpose of flash. Spending your mana in the early turns for ramp, evoke Elementals, self-mill and draw is better to setup Muldrotha then having many Elementals on the battlefield.

Just adding a small package of nonElemental budget creatures that have excellent interaction with Muldrotha and Cavalier of Night could help gameplay.
