My muldrotha deck started out this way. I was innocent. I thought I could just do a sultai value train. I was wrong. The dark side was too strong. Now I run Second Chance , Time Sieve + Myr Battlesphere , and Mindslaver .

If you still resist the dark side, then try Prime Speaker Vannifar or Birthing Pod . If the dark side is calling you, then I welcome you to check out Tide Pod Breakfast.

So, we live in the internet age. Information is so fast. We don't have to wait for a magazine to tell us what the best decks are.

Commanders like Prime Speaker Vannifar and Mairsil, the Pretender had such a high power ceiling but could only be built 1 way and if you weren't building them in the most optimal way, you'd get hated off the table because people thought you were building it to be a degenerate.

However, there are commanders like Muldrotha, the Gravetide and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice who can retain their status as the topic of conversation in commander because they're always recieving new toys each set - there are other commanders like Golos, Tireless Pilgrim and a few others that keep people's attention because their design space is much more open; they lend themselves to different strategies - there is no 1 correct way to build this.

Linear combo commanders and tribal commanders will fade from the spot light as soon as the set drops but commanders that play well with graveyards, lands or planeswalkers tend to stay in the lime light longer.

Hi, have you considered including Momir Vig, Simic Visionary , Birthing Pod , Prime Speaker Vannifar or Neoform ? I think those cards are interesting in Riku of two Reflections decks.

Prime Speaker Jace

Legendary Planeswalker - Jace

+1: Look at the top 3 cards of your library. Reveal any number of creature cards and put them into your hand. Put the rest on the top or bottom of your library.

-2: You may cast an instant or sorcery card from your hand if its mana cost is less than or equal to the number of +1/+1 counters among creatures you control.

: Jace becomes a 3/5 Human Wizard Mutant creature with Hexproof, Reach, and "This creature gets +1/+1 for each loyalty counter on it". (Jace is no longer a planeswalker, but his loyalty abilities can still be used.)

Starting loyalty: 2

There, that's my take on a Mutate planeswalker. I think it works, according to the rules of the game. It even has a story aspect to it... See Prime Speaker Zegana and Prime Speaker Vannifar.

Create a permanent card with a repeatable ability that says "Search outside the game in exile for a card named Air Elemental and create a token copy of it". Except Air Elemental can be any common or uncommon artifact, creature, land, etc. that you choose.

I feel like this deck wants to be fairly aggro, but you've built it to have quite a bit of control.

Shadowspear or Arcane Lighthouse would help you to target things that would be otherwise untargetable.

Arena and other fight effects could help you ditch your stolen creature similar to the Fling mechanics you currently have. I feel like you'll run out steam really quickly with all of these one-off effects. Maybe use Jalira, Master Polymorphist for a repeatable way to transform random stuff you steal from opponents into useful permanent stuff you need. I would also recommend Prime Speaker Vannifar or any other card with this effect like Birthing Pod. Throw in some really good, efficient green creatures too.

You should be getting enough card advantage by stealing opponents' stuff and transforming it into flings and polymorphs, but the deck needs to win. You're relying on the opponents having good creatures to steal, but you need to have good creatures too.

Yasova is a really cool commander, not one I see often. I like where you are going with this. Good luck!

kpres on Something’s in my eye! Whatever shall I do?

Kodama of the East Tree is so broken. I play it in a reanimator deck with Prime Speaker Vannifar, and it's nuts. Every time you play a land, you can put another land into play. Just that alone would be a great ability, but no. It's every time you put a permanent into play, and you're blinking stuff. Plus Sakashima and all your crazy ETB triggers. Great build, dude!
