Murkfiend Liege Discussion

Yotian_Soldier on 75% Simic Hydra Tribal

2 weeks ago

05 May 2019 update:

Major overhauling of the deck; added new cards from War of The Sparks:

Karn's Bastion > Island

Evolution Sage > Renegade Krasis

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner > Endless One

With the return of proliferate mechanic in WAR is a godsend to this deck as it greatly helped with the sub-theme of proliferating the various counters on our permanents. Also the synergy between Evolution Sage and Fertilid is just bonkers.

It is just sad that the sole hydra in the set ( Bioessence Hydra ) relies on planeswalkers to get it's counters and this deck only planeswalker is Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner which main purpose is for an additional activation of our commander among other things with her minus ability. She compliments with both Seedborn Muse and Retreat to Coralhelm to increase the number of activation of our commander. Looking for a slot to jam in Murkfiend Liege .

Will wait for the rotation of Hydroid Krasis to soften the card's price.

Yes, Murkfiend Liege 's abilities apply to Roon despite not mentioning all of Roon's colors. Roon is green, and Roon is blue, so Roon qualifies for the untap ability and both of the +1/+1 abilities (since they are separate, you apply each separately, so creatures that are both blue and green receive both for a total of +2/+2).

The same goes for protection. If an ability says "protection from red," it doesn't matter that the creature is also green. Nikya of the Old Ways is red because it has red in its casting cost, and no color-defining text to change that. Vestige of Emrakul , on the other hand, is colorless because Devoid says so, so it is not red.

The interaction in question is Murkfiend Liege and Roon of the Hidden Realm . The question is, does murkfiend’s untap ability apply to Roon even though it only mentions two of the colors in Roon’s color scheme and not all three?

On a side note would this apply to spells with protection from one color when the card in question is multicolored? Like for instance I have protection from red and a green and red creature attacks me. Would I still have protection from it?

Gurt30_84 on Tatyova, Benthic Druid

I try to get Tatyova, Benthic Druid out as quick as I can. Sometimes turn 3, if I can get Simic Growth Chamber and a land and put out Azusa, Lost but Seeking on turn 2.

Psychic Corrosion let's me mill opponents pretty quick when I start drawing off of Beast Whisperer + Rashmi, Eternities Crafter + Guardian Project + Soul of the Harvest

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary helps with this too.

Scapeshift + Tishana, Voice of Thunder + Hydroid Krasis draw me a bunch of cards, through landfall and creatures, dealing damage for each card drawn, with Psychosis Crawler

If I use Scapeshift and sac X lands, aside from drawing X cards and gaining X life, I can always block with World Shaper and let it die, returning those X lands from the graveyard to the battlefield, drawing me X cards, and gaining X life.....

Murkfiend Liege + Wilderness Reclamation untaps my creatures and lands on my end step. That allows me to play cards on my opponents end step with Alchemist's Refuge .

You should add Eldrazi Conscription , Loyal Guardian , Murkfiend Liege and Austere Command .

For removal, you could probably cut back on the creatures that return cards from the graveyard.

Inkmoth on Roony and the Blink Machine!

Since you're leaning towards casual and you already rock Murkfiend Liege and Seedborn Muse , I would consider Leyline of Anticipation , Vedalken Orrery , or Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir . The loss of Prophet of Kruphix in Roon really hurts, but those suggestions coupled with the untappers can make your deck hella fun since you'll be able to turn your opponents' turns into yours :D

All around great deck, but I would want at least one or two counters, maybe Glen Elendra Archmage , since you can blink her to reset persist.

Thanks for the review WizardOfTheNorthernCoast! Looks good! I got some tips from the discussion on your deckpage. Unexpected Results is definitely on-theme but it could stop the Surge wincon. Seems like you put in more passive draw compared to my ETB/on-cast draw. I guess I could try that for another time. Would you ever get more than 7 cards and have to discard though?

  • I put the Conjurer's Closet and Minion Reflector because I have alot of ETB effects, so these help me to 'recycle' them. I think its fine to cast them on the mainphase or flash them in with Orrery/ Leyline/ Alchemist Refuge. The Reflector requires me to pay each time so i'll be cutting it out.

  • I'll be cutting Beast Whisperer first since GP works with the conjurer's closet. The Whisperer can be copied to give me insane draw though, so I need to test it out. And I almost forgot, the commander herself is a draw engine.

  • Primal Surge says 'may' so that incident with the Leviathan stopping the wincon wouldnt happen!

  • the Murkfiend Liege was meant to be my alternate Seedborn Muse but would only work if I had more manadorks. Having 6 manadorks, probably this isnt a reliable way to get flash mana.

  • I actually opt to remove Mwonvuli Beast Tracker because it has only 5 targets now/

  • swapping Wood Elves for Farhaven Elf because the only value land I get from the latter is Breeding Pool . Being able to search for any basic means I can get more islands online for Scourge of Fleets

  • shelving Gyre Sage for now as it takes awhile to get online, while Karametra's Acolyte is probably more reliable for ramp

  • I kinda like the Coatl / Mizzium Meddler / Voidmage Husher / Void Grafter though. Part of the theme of flashing

  • the Diluvian Primordial could work many things. Maybe I cast a wheel, or flash the Primordial in response to use an opponent's Counterspell. hahah

PS: I forgot to mention about Leviathan: what I'm worried about is: cast Surge, hit labman, then hit Leviathan, you lose. It's kind of a corner case, but it's something I frown at. Also, if you need to bring GY hate back in, Loaming Shaman could come back in and replace Murkfiend Liege or add Scavenger Grounds
