For the mana base, I would say get rid of Geier Reach Sanitarium , Rogue's Passage , and Detection Tower . Those lands aren’t very useful in modern except in very specific decks. Also, 24 lands is a lot unless you are playing a land ramp sub theme, which you aren’t. Getting rid of the lands will give you more room to put in spells and stuff.

  • Basically all of your SB is creature removal. If your a control deck creatures shouldn't stick. you either need more creature removal in the sideboard or need to rework your game plan and how you get there.
  • Geier Reach Sanitarium is not a very competitive card i also feel like the deck is trying to do to much.

Runeroads thats basicly why Geier Reach Sanitarium is in the deck, its really easy to get it into play a lot of the time and it acts as either a finisher or a way to get to Exsanguinate + Vexing Shusher

Some good creatures for the deck may also be ones that can provide a good bonus later on or have some good utility.

Selfless Spirit Can help you survive a board wipe or if blocks become too much of a problem and you want your creatures to survive.

Thalia, Heretic Cathar Will slow your opponents down so your deck can pick up some speed.

Also the best way to get rid of opposing commanders is to transform them with cards like Darksteel Mutation since then they won’t go back to the command zone anytime soon.

Also since you are using Smothering Tithe you could add in Geier Reach Sanitarium and Mikokoro, Center of the Sea so you can get some more triggers off it and for some card draw.

Hey, interesting concept, good start for a budget deck. Nice Loam Ultimate Box Topper :)

I think if you want to win with Maniac or Jace by drawing a card without any cards in your library then you want more low mana cost draw effects that you can access from your graveyard. Other low mana cost instant/sorcery spells for draw are also good.

Budget cards ($3 or less each) for draw to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Jwari Shapeshifter
  • Mirror Image
  • Fated Infatuation
  • Natural Affinity
  • Cultivate
  • Worm Harvest

Buried Alive is great with dredge creatures: Grave-Troll, Stinkweed, etc. Tutor for three of them and put them all into your graveyard. Jarad's Orders and Final Parting are tutors that can put a card into your hand and also one into your graveyard. Wonder is good with self-mill; when in the graveyard and you control an Island can give Muldrotha flying making her a bigger threat to attack and do Commander damage.

Animate Dead is great with Muldrotha's ability to play an enchantment from your graveyard. Two drop reanimation that can reanimate Muldrotha or any other creature in your graveyard or target a creature in one of your opponent's graveyards. Kaya's Ghostform enchantment that makes it hard for your opponents to remove Muldrotha. Helps to keep Muldrotha out of the Command Zone.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rites of Flourishing
  • Zendikar's Roil
  • Zendikar Resurgent
  • Undergrowth Champion
  • Far Wanderings
  • Villainous Wealth

Budget land upgrades to consider:


Three $5 cards to consider adding are Fauna Shaman , Mystic Remora and Eternal Witness . Fauna is an engine with dredge creatures to repeatedly get them into your graveyard while also tutoring for another creature. Remora is one of the best sources of repeatable no mana cost draw in multiplayer Commander. With Muldrotha you don't have to pay the upkeep cost just choose to sac it and then play it again from your graveyard. Witness is powerful with self-mill to recur nonpermanent cards from your graveyard.

Have you seen the new The Haunt of Hightower ? Sire Of Insanity can be pretty brutal as well. Necrogen Mists and Bottomless Pit are nice repeated discard, Words of Waste can turn extra draws into discard, and Geier Reach Sanitarium does the same with spare mana.

I'm not sure if Academy Ruins is worth it. Sure buying back EE is powerful but there are probably better utility lands with a similar opportunity cost. The obvious examples are Blast Zone and a second Celestial Colonnade but Geier Reach Sanitarium or Mikokoro, Center of the Sea could be reasonable because of how well they interact with the 4 of Narset, Parter of Veils rather than the two of EE(especially with black mana being available only half of the time).
