Muldrotha, the Gravetide

Legendary Creature — Elemental Avatar

During each of your turns, you may play up to one permanent card of each permanent type from your graveyard. (If a card has multiple permanent types, choose one as you play it.)

Muldrotha, the Gravetide Discussion

Hey munky702 thanks for having a look at my deck.

Both of those cards Zur's Weirding and Breathstealer's Crypt seem to be good cards for a Muldrotha, the Gravetide deck. But they do not promote the direction I want to have with the deck. I preferably like to allow other players to play normally and interact/interrupt only when needed. Following said strategy in my personal experience I found it easier not be the main target of a game and the general mood of the table to be better.

I don't see anything wrong here. Maybe try Pardic Miner and Mimic Vat . Also Mudhole for land manipulators like Muldrotha, the Gravetide and The Gitrog Monster .

LVL_666 hey im computer stupid ha, ill learn thank you.

Gargos, Vicious Watcher i actually love this card. I had him in my Red Green Modern Hydra deck for a while, but decided to make a different deck with him. Its mono green Modern Hydra Fight deck. also gave me an excuse to use use Arena .

Yea its all good ha. I did update the wurm deck, its even more tribal than before, what is your thoughts? I did put Beast Within , and a shitload of tutors.

Side note. I haven't lost a game with the updated deck yet. One game i even started with 0 lands and won by the 10th turn. Of course small pool, obviously need to go on mtgo or to the game store. Played against Jodah, Archmage Eternal , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice .

Jodah, Archmage Eternal - beat by using Hall of Gemstone and a 25/25 Omnath, Locus of Mana

Muldrotha, the Gravetide - turned all the lands into creatures used Lure & Engulfing Slagwurm

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim - Lands into creatures Omnath, Locus of Mana & Kusari-Gama & Alluring Scent

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice - just buffed everything up with Finale of Devastation , tutored God-Eternal Rhonas , and Overwhelming Stampede

@Crav96 thanks for the comment! I don't normally have issues with the mana base or landfall triggers. In addition to those ramp cards I also run several cards that recur lands from the graveyard such as Life from the Loam , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Titania, Protector of Argoth , and World Shaper . Those in addition to 10 lands which are easy to get into the GY (such as fetches) help smooth out some additional land drops to get those triggers. However, that's not even the point of the landfall triggers. They are nice to get organically here and there but the main thing is Scapeshift ing for insane value. The majority of the games this deck has won are from Scapeshift . Once 10 lands are out with a creature with a landfall trigger, for this example lets use Dread Presence , then you are looking at Scapeshift dealing 20 damage, gaing 20 life, and then Field of the Dead giving 10 zombies and I also usually search for Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage too, just for fun.

SideBae on Muldrotha EDH Self Mill

Cephalid Vandal helps mill a lot.

Tainted Pact can exile your whole deck, as your list is really singleton and doesn't have doubled basics. Demonic Consultation is similar. These can win the game with Laboratory Maniac .

Lotus Petal is a good mana-source in this deck. Lion's Eye Diamond is similar and much better, though it's about $200 these days.

I think taking out Mortal Combat for Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is probably a good idea. Mortal Combat needs to stick on the field for at least a full turn iteration in order to trigger, but Jace, Wielder of Mysteries can win on the turn he comes down. Also, he fits as an interchangeable part with the Laboratory Maniac win condition.

Vintage Xerox cantrips are worth inclusion. Ponder and Preordain belong in any blue deck, and Brainstorm is good if you have enough shuffle effects. You're not running fetches, but I think with your self-mill cards like Stinkweed Imp and Hedron Crab you may have the ability to avoid a Brainstorm lock anyway.

Plaguecrafter is a repeatable edict effect -- it even sacrifices itself.

A big reason to play green in EDH is because of the access to mana-dorks. Llanowar Elves , Birds of Paradise and Elves of Deep Shadow are all worth including, and Priest of Titania , Bloom Tender , Deathrite Shaman and Arbor Elf are worth at least considering, too.

Doom Whisperer ? This is a good way to build card-advantage.

Mishra's Bauble is a good second Urza's Bauble , if you wanted that effect.

Mindslaver is a card worth thinking about. You can hard-lock one opponent by just repeatedly dropping and sac-ing it.

Ashiok, Dream Render and Narset, Parter of Veils are great in any blue EDH deck, especially since Narset, Parter of Veils pairs REALLY well with Windfall .

Seal of Primordium is good as a second Caustic Caterpillar . It also doesn't use up the creature permanent-type with Muldrotha, the Gravetide and costs less to cast and activate.

City of Brass and Mana Confluence are good sources of colored mana in three-color decks.

Good luck! That's all I got.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Commander 2019...

Staizer - Get ready for a long response:

I did look at the same list as you did, but as a longtime morph player, this deck is a disappointment. I've already made my thoughts on Kadena clear so I'll make that response short.


A bland Sultai value engine that brings nothing new to the table. She isn't a bad card by any means, but she doesn't address any of morph's biggest weaknesses. I'd still play Animar, Soul of Elements , Kruphix, God of Horizons , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , and maybe even the new Bant brawl commander over her.

The choice of morph/manifest related reprints

Some fine inclusions. Ixidron , Stratus Dancer , and Vesuvan Shapeshifter are nice, but they chose to exclude most of the best morph/manifest related cards: Dream Chisel , Ixidor, Reality Sculptor , Whisperwood Elemental , Riptide Entrancer , Voidmage Prodigy , Voidmage Apprentice , Aphetto Runecaster , Primordial Mist , Obscuring AEther , Unblinking Bleb , Weaver of Lies , Brine Elemental (though this one actually makes sense), and even Backslide . I would never expect all or even most of those to make it into the deck, but a couple would've been nice and would've made more sense than something like Deathmist Raptor or Silumgar Assassin .

Value reprints

Not much to complain about here as there is some solid value in the deck, though I think Cloudstone Curio or Equilibrium would've been good value reprints that interact well with the theme mechanic.

New cards

Only Scroll of Fate and Kadena's Silencer are worth mentioning here. I know I sound like a broken record, but none of the new cards help address the issues facing morph: speed and the fact that morph is a value based mechanic that requires a massive mana investment. Morph will always be a casual mechanic, but it needs something that reduces the cost of triggering morph, or something that allows for multiple activations (my hope was for repeatable Backslide effects). Neither of those issues were addressed by the new cards in this deck. I would've been happy with just 1 card that helps in that way...1 card.

Is this a good pre-con for new players? Yes. Does it have value? Yes, though most of the value cards are only that way due to scarcity. I think many will end up tanking in price. Will it win games against the other pre-cons? Probably. Will it win games against even 60% decks? Unlikely.

So is it a good pre-con and I am being extra critical? Maybe, but this mechanic has had a special place in my heart for a very long time (Morph was first introduced when I was a little kid and just starting out playing Magic). I was excited to see morph finally get some needed reprints and support. Instead the new cards aren't that inspiring and the reprints honestly look like they just pulled up Gatherer, typed in "morph", and then picked some of the first things that they found.
