Mesmeric Orb

Mesmeric Orb


Whenever a permanent becomes untapped, that permanent's controller mills a card (They put the top card of their library into their graveyard.)

What a fun idea for a deck! I love creative uses for Tormod.

Painful Truths is often going to be a better Ancient Craving in your 3c deck. Night's Whisper is also a good option. I would also really think you'd want Faithless Looting both for the discard and the flashback, and Valakut Awakening  Flip is a nice self-wheel plus a land-drop if you need it.

There's also Throes of Chaos , which is a fun little Cascade engine that makes sure you don't have dead draws late in the game.

If you find you want to turbo your GY a little more, consider dredgers like Stinkweed Imp paired with self-mill, the best of which is probably Altar of Dementia and Mesmeric Orb .

Mizzix's Mastery also seems like a good "win the game" option for you!

Mentor of the Meek is a nice card-draw engine with Tormod.

I'm toying with a similar build right now. Instead of Mesmeric Orb I'm going with Altar of the Brood for similar effect. I'm also including the Myr package including Myr Galvanizer and Myr Turbine to assemble the package for infinite mana to power the Staff of Domination . I also like the idea of Mana Vault to accelerate to Osgir and then sacrifice and clone it to net 5 mana on a later turn. I feel it's also not a terrible idea to include your favorite "Swords of...". I'm going with Sword of Truth and Justice and Sword of Body and Mind . They're typically lackluster but doubling down on those combat damage triggers sounds spicy.

I would add Mesmeric Orb . Since every card you mill with it is a separate trigger, you get a lot of tokens. You also piss off your opponents usually and can stop infinite untap combos like dramatic scepter or palinchron combos

What about leaning into flashback/Retrace/jump-start a bit more combined with cards like Mesmeric Orb and Secrets of the Dead ?

Filth and Runechanter's Pike for the voktron kill.

Cypher35 on Muldrotha Wincons/Infinite Combos

1 month ago

I've been playing my muldrotha deck for about 2 years now, and here's some of my favorite combos to use

Muldrotha, the Gravetide + Timestream Navigator + Cellar Door to get infinite turns/zombie tokens

Muldrotha, the Gravetide + Mindslaver works best in a 1 v 1 but can be a useful political tool and can help take a player out of the game.

and any other wincon works around cards like Mesmeric Orb , Fraying Sanity (cast on self) Mirror-Mad Phantasm , Altar of Dementia , and one of either Jace, Wielder of Mysteries or Laboratory Maniac ( Thassa's Oracle also works but I haven't gotten my hands on a copy yet so it's not in the deck) and simply works to get as many cards in my graveyard and then win with the Lab/jace.

there's a lot of strategies and EDHREC has a great page dedicated to combos within certain commanders or color archetypes, so I'll link muldrotha's here

hope this helps!

Looks nice!

If you're gonna lean allot towards milling, Mesmeric Orb or Mindcrank are good inclusions. Also Drown in the Loch or Windfall becomes quite good.

In contrast I would also suggest a Ashiok, Dream Render as pretty much every deck with black and green enjoy graveyard recursion.

Sword of the Animist and Wayfarer's Bauble are great options for ramp, which i'd replace with e.g. mind carver or sky diamond.

And lastly i would replace Fated Return with something like Beacon of Unrest . 7 mana is very steep.

Love the theme of the deck! Just a couple of suggestions here and there. 1. I would definitively add more instants in order to react swiftly to possible threats or defend your board if opponents start to be too concerned about the advantage that you're generating. 2. Maybe add more blinking enablers such as Conjurer's Closet or Thassa, Deep-Dwelling in order to increase the reiteration of ETB's 3. Like the mill sub-theme but either you commit to it a little bit more (with cards like Mesmeric Orb or Sphinx's Tutelage ) or you free up some more space for the above mentioned pieces. 4. Final note, I wouldn't run slow ramp rocks such as Gilded Lotus or multi colored ones like Arcane Signet , try instead something faster (If the budget is not a problem) or clunky but cheaper like Worn Powerstone or Basalt Monolith Anyway, these are just my thoughts, again I really like the deck and I think it has great potential!

Interesting wincon. I recommend Mesmeric Orb and Hedron Crab . Both doing a great job at getting those artifacts into your grave
