When this enters the battlefield, destroy target nonartifact, nonblack creature.
Evoke (You may cast this spell for the evoke cost. If you do, this is sacrificed when this enters the battlefield.)
nuperokaso on Ninjas and Rogues

- Disciple of Deceit This seems to have anti-synergy with Ninjutsu. Since you return an attacker, you are not going to untap it. Overall people seem to overestimate this card. It looks like a tutor, but it's rather quite bad.
- Inkrise Infiltrator, Vedalken Infiltrator Power one for two mana mana is not worth it.
- Kotose, the Silent Spider This costs too much for a 4/4 with no evasion and no immediate board effect.
- Okiba Reckoner Raid Flip At the start of the game, you can't use it as an attacker. In late game, Menace is not that effective. Overall Changeling Outcast is a more reliable creature for one black mana, and even that isn't exactly a premium card.
- Twisted Embrace 4 mana is too much for this.
Other cards to add:
- Shriekmaw - At worst it's a mediocre 2 mana sorcery removal spell, which is not bad. In longer game, you'll get a 3/2 unblockable create to close the game, which further works with nunjutsu. If you can manage to evoke it with Feign Death or Undying Evil...
- Baleful Strix This is a two mana removal which draws a card. And with Ninjutsu, it you can draw additional card.
- Siren Stormtamer This is an early ninjutsu enabler, which also protects your better creatures. Unlike say Negate, it can also proactively attack.
- Sleeper's Robe Ensures unblockability of your ninjas with a card advatage just for 2 mana.
- Clearwater Pathway Flip Yet another untapped dual land.
multimedia on Muldrotha: Budget Elemental Tribe!
5 months ago
Hey, just saw your update. Something to think about for gameplay, is it more important to you to have Muldrotha on the battlefield or many Elementals? Having both is asking too much because Muldrotha requires much setup and Elementals don't provide that setup. Muldrotha is a go-tall Commander, but you're playing as go-wide with many small Elementals. This conflict of what Muldrotha wants and what the rest of your deck is doing is most likely hindering gameplay.
Your deck is not built to go-wide with Elementals because you don't have any Elemental tribal lords, anthem effects and no early game Elemental token sources to flood the battlefield with Elementals. Lords are needed to make little Elementals actual good attackers so that you can swarm opponent. You're best attackers other than Muldrotha when it has evasion are the Elementals who can grow themselves. These Elementals are go-tall strategy not go-wide, having a large power/toughness Elemental for an attacker, instead of many little Elementals.
You're not going to like my next suggestions, but now that you've seen that your deck is struggling, some changes could help? My advice is build your deck first to maximize Muldrotha and second add in Elementals after doing so? Cut the weaker Elementals for more Muldrotha synergy especially draw/self-mill, ramp, protection and removal? Just play the better Elementals? I'm not suggesting to change your deck strategies, keep Elementals, +1/+1 counters and proliferate, but tone them down in favor of Muldrotha?
An example of a streamline Elemental base using current Elementals (by CMC):
- Embodiment of Spring: ramp.
- Skullbriar, the Walking Grave: beater or blocker.
- Omnath, Locus of Mana: ramp, beater or blocker.
- Risen Reef: draw, Elemental tribal synergy.
- Splinterfright: self-mill, beater or blocker.
- Forgotten Ancient: counters engine.
- Bloom Hulk: proliferate engine.
- Foundation Breaker: removal.
- Cavalier of Gales: draw, beater or blocker.
- Cavalier of Night: sac engine, removal, blocker.
- Mulldrifter: draw.
- Night Incarnate: removal, creature board wipe.
- Shriekmaw: removal.
- AEthersnipe: removal.
- Zendikar's Roil: Elemental tokens.
- Nissa of Shadowed Boughs: Elemental lands.
I left Slitherwisp off the list because you don't have any other cards with flash? Without other cards with flash, Slitherwisp isn't worth a deck spot. Now you could add cards to give spells flash, but even so Muldrotha doesn't work with flash since you can only during your turn cast permanents from your graveyard.
Flash doesn't get around this Muldrotha restriction. You can flash at any point during your turn, but not on opponent's turns which defeats the purpose of flash. Spending your mana in the early turns for ramp, evoke Elementals, self-mill and draw is better to setup Muldrotha then having many Elementals on the battlefield.
Just adding a small package of nonElemental budget creatures that have excellent interaction with Muldrotha and Cavalier of Night could help gameplay.
- Eternal Witness: recursion.
- Sakura-Tribe Elder: ramp.
- Satyr Wayfinder: self-mill.
- Siren Stormtamer: protection.
- Dockside Chef: draw and sac outlet.
- Plaguecrafter: removal.
- Haywire Mite: removal.

Having built a similar, but different end-result deck myself, I can appreciate and understand the struggle. You're on the right track, sorting cards into sac fodder and sac engines. I also had a third category, for sac profits, that rewards you for boardwide sacrifices, exactly like your commander is doing.
For renewable, repeatable sacrifices: There's an infinite zombie fodder generator in Gravecrawler and Carrion Feeder. You can also use Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia to get a daily zombie to toss. Grafted Wargear is a fun way to repeatedly sacrifice, preferably after attacking. Witch's Oven also lets you sacrifice after creatures aren't useful anymore. Priest of Forgotten Gods is pricey but rewards you for having lots of sacrifices.
As for single use tactics, Bone Splinters is a good spell. Shriekmaw sacrifices itself. Ordeal of Erebos would do well here as well, as it sacrifices itself after building, and would sac early due to the global counters.
Lastly, Hindervines would do great to block all combat damage once your creatures get even a single +1/+1 counter.
Best of luck!
Kret on Muldrotha: Budget Elemental Tribe!

Soul of the Harvest, Fertilid, Mulldrifter and Shriekmaw are good budget elementals.
Wolfbriar Elemental is a nice mana sink in the late game.
Consider adding backgrounds like Master Chef or Scion of Halaster.
You are running Joint Exploration. Consider similar cards like Explore or Growth Spiral. They can let your deck gain some early velocity.
If you play multiple elementals with evoke then a card like Village Rites becomes useful because you can cast it in response to the evoke trigger and draw 2. Card like Evolutionary Leap could also be used in response to evoke trigger to draw a fresh elemental
Zendikar's Roil can let you go wide with elementals.
Tatyova, Steward of Tides makes your lands into 3/3/ elementals
Kenrith's Transformation is a great removal spell that replaces itself and can be recurred.
Tezzeret's Gambit draws 2 cards and proliferates.
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar puts counters on each creature for just 3 mana
Cards I would replace:
- cards with kicker and Vine Gecko (they are generally worse cards than regular budget ramp spells like Rampant Growth or Cultivate)
- 6 forests because you have low mana curve (I would cut the land count to something like 36 lands, but you could also swap them for dual lands with basic land types from Kaldheim - Woodland Chasm, Dominaria United - Haunted Mire, Temple cycle - Temple of Malady or bounce lands - Golgari Rot Farm
- Titania, Protector of Argoth because there is only one card -> Harrow that can proc her ability to make elementals
I would also cut some of the elementals that don't have any useful abilties like Jaddi Lifestrider, Healer of the Glade, Glade Watcher, Floodhound, Offalsnout, Smolder Initiate and Slitherwisp.
Hope you find some of the suggestions helpful.

Oh (bleep) you're right! LMAO. Like I said, I've been playing since Revised and have a LOT of decks. Always had a penchant for tribal knights (even though there have been/are better tribes for sure through the years). My Modern version does, in fact, run Giver of Runes. The Kor designation doesn't allow me to Cavern of Souls her in but I do run plenty of white sources. I'm sorry bud. 100% my bad. Sorry about that. I need to NOT drink my scotch and give advice. I just get soooooo excited when I see a solid knight tribal build I lose control.
I WILL post my ACTUAL MODERN legal version in the next few days. Giver of Runes is my only non-human or non knight creature in that deck. I run everything else human and/or knight in that deck-most are both. I announce my first Cavern of Souls as "knight" which prevents counter magic on all but the Giver of Runes and Noble Hierarch. Those both being (ideally) early drops-counter magic doesn't normally come into play.
My current, most regularly played, Modern deck is not knights (although I do play it still for a change of pace once in awhile but it's not my number one deck-hence my leading you astray). My current regular MODERN deck is as follows:
Deck: Greif Blade
Main: 4 Ephemerate 1 Poet's Quill 1 Batterskull 4 Giver of Runes 1 Sword of Fire and Ice 2 Plains 3 Godless Shrine 3 Concealed Courtyard 3 Skyclave Apparition 1 Takenuma, Abandoned Mire 3 Tidehollow Sculler 2 Malakir Rebirth Flip 2 Charming Prince 1 Kaldra Compleat 1 Silent Clearing 1 Shriekmaw 4 Grief 3 Feign Death 4 Marsh Flats 1 Lion Sash 1 Flooded Strand 3 Touch the Spirit Realm 1 Swamp 1 Castle Locthwain 2 Agadeem's Awakening Flip 2 Solitude 4 Stoneforge Mystic 1 Verdant Catacombs
Sideboard: 2 Leyline of Sanctity 1 Shadowspear 2 Damn 1 Sword of Sinew and Steel 2 Damping Sphere 2 Sanctum Prelate 2 Kaya's Guile 2 Dauthi Voidwalker 1 Reduce to Memory
This is the list I run most frequently so it's the one I know best and have readily available to share. This is NOT a net-deck AFAIK. If there is an identical or similar list floating around in Cyberspace it's purely coincidental. This list was home brewed and is one of my favorites I've ever made through the years.
Metroid_Hybrid on Liliana, Destroyer of Friendships (v5)

ThatOneWeeaboo4 & griffstick: Thank you for your input.
On one hand, the Vulturous Aven & Shriekmaw aren't going anywhere anytime soon, because Lilana requires non-token creatures to die in order to flip, and self-sacrificing creatures are the most efficient way to go..
On the other hand, the demons you two mentioned seem like valid exchanges for the Wurm & Dragon Spirit..

Very cool build! I love a lot of your card choices like Gruesome Fate & Dina, Soul Steeper. =D
Nothing too crazy, but a few suggestions! You could cut Eliminate in favour of Abrupt Decay. In that same vein, you've got a lot of creature removal but not as many ways to deal with other permanent types, so I think Acidic Slime would be a better fit than Shriekmaw. I also wonder if Tragic Slip over Eaten Alive might be a good change - even though it doesn't hit Planeswalkers at least it's Instant-speed and only one mana to cast, and still removes Indestructible creatures.
Cards that I think would be great additions but I'm not sure what the best cuts would be for your playstyle: Birthing Pod, Bastion of Remembrance, Throne of the God-Pharaoh & Pact of the Serpent.
Only other suggestion is maybe find room for a few more lands. You're not playing that much card draw, so you may find it tough to hit your land drops consistently through turn 5/6.
Again, love the build! +1 =)
