Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmothpairs well with your commander, as you make your commander unblockable! Also any Strip Mine lands or even fetch lands can help when paired with crucible for longer, grindier games.Dauthi Voidwalker also has synergy with you milling things, which can be useful in mirror matches against fellow reanimate commander decks. I'm sure there's a bandwagon somewhere, but the ability to destroy enchantments in black is few and far between, making Feed the Swarm a weird but useful card outside of the usual flavor of black.

Silversmote Ghoul pairs really well with Gravebreaker Lamia, creating an interesting draw engine, as you can get the Ghoul back with Lamia's lifelink.

Another interesting card is Undead Gladiator. While a little underwhelming stat wise, being able to repeatedly cycle and set up your own graveyard for reanimation plays is pretty fun!

As for suggestions... Malakir Rebirth  Flip, Undying Evil, Supernatural Stamina, Abnormal Endurance, and Feign Death are all ways to double down on ETB triggers or responding to opponents removal, allowing you even more venture!

Giving your commander evasion can also come in handy! Things like Hot Soup, Trailblazer's Boots and the like will help give you consistent adventuring!

Some weird low cmc cards that I think you'd like are Kami of False Hope and Gift of Immortality. Alone, Kami is like a spore frog, and has saved my butt more times than I can count. Gift of Immortality is just that, it makes it so your opponents effectively need to kill your creature twice. When paired together or with your commander, the Kami puts a soft lock on combat damage, allowing you to continue to grind out the game for advantage!

Gravebreaker Lamia and Silversmote Ghoul also form a neat little engine when paired together, also helps set up your graveyard! Speaking of grind Desecrated Tomb can easily turn into a win condition if your commander goes online early!

Daxos, Blessed by the Sun is a decent life gaining trigger that fits with your theme! Bounty Agent is a repeatable commander destruction card! Alseid of Life's Bounty and Selfless Savior are both cheap cmc guys that can give your commander protection and you can still fetch them from the grave!

The deck does look a bit light on removal or interaction, so I'd recommend adding any plethora of options for creature removal in black and white!

All in all though, play with the cards you have! Have fun refining the deck, and don't be afraid to lose! It helps you see what your decks strengths and shortcomings are, and you're able to make changes! Hope these recommendations give you some ideas to work with! May your she dwarf beard grow ever long!

Last_Laugh I'll admit that I maintain a Muldrotha decklist here and in paper, for quite some time, but despite that have probably only played it like 10 times... which is a shame but it sometimes feels a bit powerful for the pod I might sit down with that night, and other times I don't want to hold the game up since the deck is still somewhat new to me and there's a lot going on.

That being said, the recent-ish cards that I think have been doing well are Gravebreaker Lamia, Seal of Removal, Curator's Ward, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, and Siren Stormtamer (those last two may be over two years old and you may know already)

Hello , i see that you are missing a lot of protection for Muldrotha and have a lot of ramp spell that will not be useful in your graveyard later on. Here some suggestions for you if you want to explore other avenue.

Protection: Command Beacon - It will ensure you can always cast muldrotha for cheap. Bojuka Bog - very important to interact with your opponent graveyards, if not needed cycle it and use it later if needed.

Lightning Greaves For me its a no brainer especially how much muldrotha cost to cast we need to help him..or her staying on the board.

Spore Frog is just amazing if you are in a playgroup that go to combat a lot your just dont care sac spore frog everytime and recast it on your next turn for a huge shield... if you playgroup dont use combat a lot leave it out.

Elephant Grass Is also very good to keep you safe while you are building up your board. Dont want to pay the cumulative upkeep, sac it and replay it again :)

Glen Elendra Archmage is also going to disturbed your opponent plans when its on the board and I pair her with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed so she always come back without me having to recast her, and Mikaeus is just awesome in this deck.

Im Testing and trying Lilting Refrain for counter spell which seemed a good deterrent like Glen Elendra and it can be reutilized.

Ramp You are using a lot of sorceries for this category, I was doing the same before and felt that these card had no value on the long run.

I now use a different approach on ramp. I use milling and I play cards like Ramunap Excavator , Dryad of the Ilysian Grove , Springbloom Druid (should replace cultivate), my favorite is World Shaper (instead of your splendid reclamation) and sac it for massive boost, same for The Mending of Dominaria it just feed your grave and have a massive outcome + they can be replayed later by your cmdr.

I would play 1 or 2 drop mana dorks over ramping sorceries for sure. The only sorcery I really suggest is Life from the Loam so good to feed your graveyard or get your land back if needed.

Self mill: Jace, Memory Adept will do better than Beleren , pair this with Syr Konrad, the Grim and other mill option ... let me know in your reply if you would like this avenue a have a few good cards that can help.

Tutor: You also want to replace your Beseech the Queen for Gravebreaker Lamia or Sidisi, Undead Vizier same thing it does the same and can be replayed over and over.

Card Draw: I would replace Lifecrafter's Bestiary for Secrets of the Dead which will make you draw like crazy when you cast back stuff from your grave.

Ohter: Fleshbag Marauder is a good effect, but you can have more versatile and mana efficient creatures which are also cheap: Demon's Disciple and Plaguecrafter both are an auto include when repeated over and over they are very nasty.

Hostage Taker is very very fun .

Steal Enchantment is a very good 2 mana value card which will make you live the dream of having a Smothering Tithe , Rhystic Study or any other broken enchantments.

I can go on an on on card that will benefit your deck , what I would say check to replace your instant and sorceries with permanents that will benefit you during the entire game.

Let me know what you think and what you will change I can then help you tweaking a few more things.

This deck is a really cool concept, but i feel like it might more efficient as a reanimator deck. Like you can get him into the graveyard with tutors Buried Alive Gravebreaker Lamia Entomb , or just by drawing and discarding aggressively with Cathartic Reunion , Chart a Course , Faithless Looting etc. Then once you got him in your graveyard you can just Bond of Revival , Body Double , Dread Return , Exhume , Victimize . cause as of now he costs 8 mana and only one other card is gonna be able to cascade into him so either 8 mana or 10 mana which is a lot of mana right. in terms of the fling plan thats awesome, you can even replace a land with Kazuul's Fury  Flip, and even add Chandra's Ignition for that fiery finish too

couple of thoughts to possibly help with efficiency: Entomb , Gravebreaker Lamia , Final Parting , Burning-Rune Demon . i can see Filth and Vengeful Pharaoh being useful but not sure if they need to included.

I should have also pointed out that most, if not all, of the combos I listed previously can be started with one or more of the cards in the graveyard. So tutoring cards into the graveyard can be useful at probably a lower dollar cost than other tutors. Those tutors are: Entomb , Buried Alive , Final Parting , Corpse Connoisseur , Gravebreaker Lamia , Burning-Rune Demon .

usurphling on Offspring's Revenge

Legion Angel isn't the best payoff that you can put in this deck. Ill rather pick another explosive big payoff creature like I mentioned above. Immersturm Predator is doing nuts in my version of offspring's revenge in arena. Im just sacrificing my either Acquisitions Expert or Basri's Lieutenant for value later on in offspring's revenge. Also, if you're going to Burning-Rune Demon , will you consider replacing it with Gravebreaker Lamia with lesser mana cost and more survivability yet still the same ability?

As for rankle, I would just go 3 copies of it replacing the lilianas. I can see her more as a sideboard card against dedicated control decks. Rankle can do damage, discard your big payoff card and draw another card. Also, selecting your sideboard depends on your local metagame or decks that you usually encounter in MTG Arena.

...or go Yorion just like everybody else lol...Since you love to self mill cards and Dimir rogues are in the current metagame, it goes into your favor. Just add more boardwipes like Doomskar and Shatter the Sky if you're worried with go wide decks.

If you really want to stick with Harmonious Archon , I will choose creatures that grows like Immersturm Predator , Oathsworn Knight , Fiend Artisan and Victory's Envoy .

Hope these advices help you more refining your deck.
