Merciless Executioner Discussion

SKYBREAKER44 on Muldrotha, the Ebbing Tide

4 days ago

Current thoughts:

  • For sure adding Daring Apprentice to try, though may be too slow without haste.
  • Want to try Glen Elendra Archmage (though she was way cheaper when I last looked).
  • Plaguecrafter will be added, even if just to replace Fleshbag Marauder / Merciless Executioner.
  • Vanishing looks like a fantastic protection for Muldrotha, since I only need her on board on my turn.
  • Mindbender Spores just looks like a hilariously fun and lesser known old card, that just looks like a great deterrent to attacking.
  • Kaya's Ghostform is strictly better than Thrull Retainer, the buff doesn't matter much.
  • Remove Sol Ring for Arcane Signet, there are so many 2 colour pips I need the coloured mana.
  • For this reason, I also want to put in Lotus Field. Sacking 2 lands may hurt early game, but can be amazing late game.
  • Debating Journey to Eternity  Flip, the curve for the deck is low but getting an extra creature out of the graveyard at instant speed is pretty great even if costs 5 CMC to activate.
  • Glacial Chasm, it just, makes me happy and could be clutch in a pinch. The cumulative upkeep is no big deal since you can let it die, so having it in your graveyard could be an awesome safety net with the limited land destruction in the format. I think sacking a land and using your land drop for it would be terrible early to mid game, unless Azusa, Lost but Seeking is out.

Savage1988 on Muldrotha "Super Budget" The Gravetide

  • Crystal Vein: this card has won me so many games with muldrotha. It gets her out earlier and gets you ahead faster, all from a land you can keep recurring.

  • I can vouch for Seal of Removal as great repeatable bounce, as well as protection for your commander (no need to pay taxes when played from hand)

  • i prefer Executioner's Capsule to Seal of Doom because i tend to have enough enchantments i want to recur, and less artifacts also being able to spread the mana can sometimes help smooth out turns. I would recommend it for your list too, your don’t run many artifacts that die.

  • Kenrith's Transformation can elk oppo’s commanders and draw a card. When their commander finally dies to a wrath or something you do it again, drawing more

  • Springbloom Druid is a great way to ramp, fix and provide bodies for sac. It even puts a land in your gy

  • Phyrexian Metamorph has become a lot cheaper with double masters. I highly recommend it though it may be just over budget for single cards.

  • Nihil Spellbomb can help destroy graveyards

  • Phyrexian Scriptures is a cheap wrath for the deck, even being able to protect your cmdr. I’d olay it in a budget list

I’d also go up cheap ramp (Signets) or to 37 or 38 lands probably. You don’t have an excess of cheap ramp (8 pieces or so, depending how you count), so 36 for a 6cmc cmdr which the deck revolves around seems a little low.

Some cards i’d consider cutting:

For reference, here’s what i run (less budget friendly) Muldrotha, Tides of Madness

multimedia on HELP Meren Budget

Hey, very good budget version of Meren.

For the manabase my advice is play an equal amount of Forests and Swamps because you have one drop green mana dorks who you want to be able to consistently play turn one which a Forest is the best land option for the manabase to do that. Having double the amount of Swamps than Forests is problematic when playing one drop mana dorks.

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Buried Alive is excellent to tutor for any three creatures and put them into your graveyard, one of the best cards with Meren. Jarad's Orders and Final Parting are nice budget tutors with Meren. Tutoring for two cards, one goes into your hand and the other being a creature into your graveyard to reanimate/recur with Meren. Elves of Deep Shadow and Talisman of Resilience are low CMC budget ramp upgrades.

Midnight Reaper and Deathreap Ritual are more repeatable draw sources when creatures you control die. Deathreap can draw a lot of cards in multiplayer Commander since morbid can trigger on any players turn as long as any creature died during the turn. Butcher of Malakir is a upgrade for a budget big creature to reanimate with Meren since it's a repeatable source of opponents having to sac a creature they control when any creature you control dies. Demon's Disciple is an upgrade for Merciless Executioner since if an opponent doesn't have a creature, but has a Planeswalker they have to sac a Planeswalker.


Some cards to consider cutting:

The Vivid lands are not good lands and even on a budget there's better options. They aren't reliable enough to warrant ETB tapped and even if you have a way to put more counters on them with proliferate I still think they're not worth playing even over more basic lands. Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis is not worth the trouble of casting it or reanimating it. It's just a beater, but you want more than that with high CMC creatures in Commander.

Good luck with your deck.

Hi Shayda!!!

Dude those dragons are doing so well (when no one wipes them)!

Did you want a similar deck? 'Cuz that's what you've got here... but I think you should lean into go-wide-aggro > midrange and play more 1-2 cmc creatures and move all your ramp to 2 (Rampant Growth, signets, etc).

I'd also recommend Golgari Charm, Boros Charm, and Heroic Intervention.

Tribal decks have so much flavor! Hope this helps, maybe we'll see it next weekend? :o

Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds should be in the list I think for filtering your lands.

Mythos of Brokkos seems like a good tutor with Muldrotha and have some recursion if you can't have your commander.

Seal of Primordium, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner and Seal of Doom are really annoying as you can play them again and again.

Kaya's Ghostform is a great protection for Muldrotha.

Syr Konrad, the Grim can do a shitload of damage I think with self mill.

Acidic Slime is just great!

A little oversight in the previous message

Out : Merciless Executioner

in : Deathrite Shaman

amb66 on Would you kindly do some tutoring?

Plaguecrafter tends to be better than Merciless Executioner, unless I've missed something and the creature types on the executioner are relevant here.
