Gravebreaker Lamia

Enchantment Creature — Snake Lamia


When Gravebreaker Lamia enters the battlefield, search your library for a card, put it into your graveyard, then shuffle your library.

Spells you cast from your graveyard cost less to cast.

seshiro_of_the_orochi I completely forgot that Shigeki, Jukai Visionary had that ability! I'll definitely be slotting him in. Spring-Leaf Avenger seems like a really cool card too! I am already running Gravebreaker Lamia and she's been great in the deck. I have a Skullwinder or two that I picked up in a Baldur's gate draft. I've only hesitated with that one because I don't like giving my opponents their choice of cards as well. I guess I could always save it until I lay down a Bojuka Bog though haha

TheOfficialCreator, I am currently trying to figure out what to cut to slot in Nyx Weaver. Refining deck lists is definitely the hardest part of deck building.

These are all super helpful suggestions. Thank you all!

Oh, I forgot to mention Gravebreaker Lamia. It's pretty slow, but it's a graveyard tutor on a body, so you you won't have issues recurring it. Another fine card is Oriq Loremage, but then again, it'd be another human, which can become a problem with any mutate commander.

Comment incoming shortly kookoo.

It's been quite some time since I posted on this thread. I figured I'd start sharing some decks again. This is my Gale, Waterdeep Prodigy + Scion of Halaster list. It is meant to be high powered but not cEDH (I like durdling too much). I am pretty happy with the list and how it's been performing, but I am always open to suggestions. Additionally, I am struggling with the last creature slot between 3 options: Wizards of Thay and Gravebreaker Lamia for obvious reasons, but the new Sheoldred, the Apocalypse is further complicating my decision.

That's a pretty cool list, and I didn't that alt art. Nice.

Some cards to consider:

Gravebreaker Lamia

Chainer, Nightmare Adept

Helm of the Host

Buried Alive, Entomb, Unmarked Grave, and Gravebreaker Lamia are all good combo setup pieces for Mimmy :)

TheOfficialCreator ooh definitely like those thank you. Just not sure what to cut for them though lol. Any suggests on what they could replace? only one I've been thinking about is if Gravebreaker Lamia is better or not than Sidisi, Undead Vizier

You'll like Sidisi, he is the best tutor in this deck for all the reasons DreadKhan said. Other good ones are Gravebreaker Lamia which is budget and recurable, Rune-Scarred Demon, which is recurable and a great beater, Buried Alive, and Woodland Bellower. Obviously, you just made major changes and won't want all of these right now, but tutors are great for eventually leveling things up down the road.

Thanks for commenting, Lord_of_Cardboard!

This deck would do exceptionally well against a Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger deck. This is for the same reason that cards like Jace's Archivist do so well in the deck: if you have have Muldrotha on the battlefield, any cards you discard might as well still be in your hand cause you can simply replay them from your graveyard. If anything, an opposing Kroxa player is almost helping you by disrupting your other opponents' hands.

As for a budget version of the deck, here's some advice on budget options and replacements. Just note that this is advice specific to my Muldrotha deck, i.e., advice for the big mana and big X-spell strategy. If you'd rather play a more typical creature-based, swing-to-kill type deck, there may be better Muldrotha lists to look at.

The mana base makes up a large portion of the deck's budget, and I would leave that mostly up to your own discretion. Just keep in mind that fetch lands like Evolving Wilds and slow fetches like Bad River are good for being replayed every turn with Muldrotha. Also, for a budget version of the deck, it's important to run more basics than I do since you'll probably need to fetch more with your ramp. Cycle lands like Lonely Sandbar, Tranquil Thicket, and Barren Moor are fantastic, especially with Life from the Loam. Some other good options:

Which brings me to another point: if I had to pick one somewhat expensive card that's worth putting in a budget Muldrotha deck, it's this one. It's a one-card value engine, giving you card draw, mill, and lands. And depending on what utility lands you choose to run, it can do a whole lot more. And if you're worried about Kroxa in your meta, Life from the Loam is a great counter to it, allowing you to fill your hand with lands to discard.

Now to address key cards for the deck's "big mana" strategy. Important cards for generating a lot of mana include Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Crypt Ghast, and Nyxbloom Ancient. You could just replace these cards with normal ramp; casting X-spells for X=10 is still good and easy to accomplish without these cards. If that's unsatisfying for you, you could consider options like Zendikar Resurgent and Mana Reflection. Unfortunately there aren't many great cheap options for producing a lot of mana. This is an important part of the deck though, so it's up to you if it's worth spending some extra money on it.

To avoid this comment being any more lengthy than it already is, here's an extensive list of some budget alternatives for the deck. The great thing about Muldrotha is that being able to replay removal makes a lot of sub-par removal actually pretty good, so it's pretty budget friendly.

Win-Conditions: What's in the deck isn't too expensive, but here's some cheaper options.


Draw / Mill:



Control and other good stuff:

If you have any other questions about budget options, let me know. I'm always happy to help!
