you might want to look at Fling and Thud being able to attack with Lightning Skelemental and then sac it to do the damage again. It's sneakier than Assault Strobe . While Temur Battle Rage and Uncaged Fury are at least at instant speed,they again might make your creatures a bigger target to remove if they see it swinging with double strike. You probably want some removal or discard Launch Party is a great way to take advantage of your guys that sac at end of turn anyways. Hellspark Elemental is a no brainer as well. Your better off dropping Shriekmaw for out right removal or burn and while Nova Chaser is cool I wouldn't run 4 they curve out for how fast this deck could play. Ideally you'd probably bump the number of Flamekin Harbinger and drop your Nova Chaser to 1-2 the harbinger tutors your nova chaser. I'd also dump the sundial for some combination of the elemental friendly Chandra's that are around there's like 4-5 to choose from.

Also if you want some removal and disruption, Evoke cards like Shriekmaw and Mournwhelk will give you twice the etb triggers.

Snowmen1 Sundial of the Infinite is actually one of my favourite cards to play in this deck because of the unique effect, it being such a weird and unused card, and the splash of control it adds to the deck! (although it doesn't come up very often) Funny you should mention Spark Elemental because it was actually the original 1-drop for this deck! It actually got replaced with Lightning Serpent because of the late-game mana dump that you mentioned. Not too sure about the direct damage spells as Shriekmaw absolutely destroys most creatures and can be sideboarded for Guiltfeeder , and really controls the board when you can play it multiple times with Thunderkin Awakener . Altough, Lightning Axe does play into the discard strategy so I'll have a look for sure! As for the Nova Chaser s, the idea is to bin them via Tormenting Voice or Incandescent Soulstoke so that they can be reanimated by Thunderkin Awakener . Their champion effect also allows for cards like Shriekmaw 's and Flamekin Harbinger 's abilities to trigger multiple times for added value. Furthermore, championing a Thunderkin Awakener when it enters removes it from combat and can protect it from dying while adding a lot of pressure. Although, it may be worth cutting one or two to make room for some other stuff. The toolbox sideboard is an amazing idea so thank you for that suggestion! Unfortunately Thoughtseize and Collective Brutality are a bit too pricey for me, although you're correct in saying that they'd make good additions, maybe even on the mainboard! Thank you so much for all the suggestions and feedback!

I would play Shriekmaw over the Ravenous Chupacabra . Yes, Shriekmaw has the nonblack restriction, but you can cast it for two mana and exile it on top of the sac trigger for six.

greyninja thanks for the +1 and the suggestions!

I originally had Secrets of the Dead in my deck. It was definitely good with Muldrotha, I just want this deck to be able to work both with and without her. In this case I think it is too reliant since the only way to case cards from my graveyard is only with Muldrotha.

Honestly Mulldrifter is mvp, it is very good since cards + 2/2 flying blocker(and/or a sac body) = good in my eyes. I only took it out to try and test other cards. Also add my current unhappiness with yawgmoth, mulldrifter might be back in soon. Thank for that!

For Shriekmaw I think I have enough removal with 1 targeted removal, 1 mass creature removal, 3 sac effects, 1 mass wipes, and 1 Song of the Dryads . Then again I have been massively wrong about many things so I will test this out with Mulldrifter , and Kaya's Ghostform .

Thanks for the help! Will definitely check out your deck.

Love it +1 from me!

What do you think about Secrets of the Dead ? I've been enjoying it in my build. Also Mulldrifter and Shriekmaw are neat.

After Primal Surge you can stack the triggers to have Mulldrifter do its thing after Jace or Lab Man are on the 'field

Please check out my Muldrotha deck and tell me what you think! Cheers

You can cut the burning inquiries. They're not helpful to your plan. Also, you have a lot of one drops, because Rift Bolt counts as a one drop, really. I would play maybe 2x copies of Incandescent Soulstoke , because it makes your creatures better. Playing multiple copies of it means that your X/1s get better, and it also allows you to play some 2 toughness elementals in your SB, like Shriekmaw (even if it can't be regen'd with Awakener, it still is good). Ashenmoor Liege can let you Skelemental, attack with Awakener to recur it, and be getting in for 16 damage on turn 3. seems decent, but hard to hard-cast.

I'm torn on Steam kin. I'll do some testing with it, but I think 2 is probably fine.

You know how I mentioned evoke creatures? Well Glarewielder can be recurred to deal with tokens and shit. Ill continue this later but Spitebellows is great.
