Good suggestions, nocknock! Dropping Kiora's Follower for Needlethorn Drake maybe? I have a feeling the card was only there because of a Kiora theme. Lorescale Coatl is really good in this deck. Your opponent has to deal with it before you can put Shielding Plax on it, or else kill you quick. As fun as that combo looks, I wonder if it's a win more?

At the moment I'm thinking more of including Siren Stormtamer to help protect any Coatls that might get on the board. Again, I'd probably drop the Followers.

Wraths and board wipes are always a good idea, and Zombies in particular can recover quickly. Deadly Tempest and Languish are reasonable budget options.

For counterspells, Counterspell is a classic. Brine Shaman could be a cute trick, as long as you keep the Zombies coming. Countersquall adds a touch of damage on. Disallow is a little more expensive, but hits pretty much everything. Diplomatic Escort, Wizard Replica, Spiketail Drake, and Siren Stormtamer are inexpensive options that can fill your graveyard with creatures.

So, I don't really like plugging my decks and stuff, but I do have one that uses low cMc creatures and Curiosity effects, and ideally starts attacking on turn 2 every game. I'll put it here, and yeah, the main game play is to use things like Bident of Thassa to gain attacks off small evasive creatures like Siren Stormtamer and then tech it up to double down with things like Duelist's Heritage and Clarion Spirit to make more evasive creatures, more instances of damage, and more card draw off Bident or something like it. It does a lot of damage while setting up combo, which is always nice : ) Part of what I enjoy about playing it is that it really punishes decks that want to sit back and ramp for a while, because that's a lot of decks : )

Also, the commander could definitely be swapped. I just really like cute things, so...

Thanks for commenting, Lord_of_Cardboard!

This deck would do exceptionally well against a Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger deck. This is for the same reason that cards like Jace's Archivist do so well in the deck: if you have have Muldrotha on the battlefield, any cards you discard might as well still be in your hand cause you can simply replay them from your graveyard. If anything, an opposing Kroxa player is almost helping you by disrupting your other opponents' hands.

As for a budget version of the deck, here's some advice on budget options and replacements. Just note that this is advice specific to my Muldrotha deck, i.e., advice for the big mana and big X-spell strategy. If you'd rather play a more typical creature-based, swing-to-kill type deck, there may be better Muldrotha lists to look at.

The mana base makes up a large portion of the deck's budget, and I would leave that mostly up to your own discretion. Just keep in mind that fetch lands like Evolving Wilds and slow fetches like Bad River are good for being replayed every turn with Muldrotha. Also, for a budget version of the deck, it's important to run more basics than I do since you'll probably need to fetch more with your ramp. Cycle lands like Lonely Sandbar, Tranquil Thicket, and Barren Moor are fantastic, especially with Life from the Loam. Some other good options:

Which brings me to another point: if I had to pick one somewhat expensive card that's worth putting in a budget Muldrotha deck, it's this one. It's a one-card value engine, giving you card draw, mill, and lands. And depending on what utility lands you choose to run, it can do a whole lot more. And if you're worried about Kroxa in your meta, Life from the Loam is a great counter to it, allowing you to fill your hand with lands to discard.

Now to address key cards for the deck's "big mana" strategy. Important cards for generating a lot of mana include Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Crypt Ghast, and Nyxbloom Ancient. You could just replace these cards with normal ramp; casting X-spells for X=10 is still good and easy to accomplish without these cards. If that's unsatisfying for you, you could consider options like Zendikar Resurgent and Mana Reflection. Unfortunately there aren't many great cheap options for producing a lot of mana. This is an important part of the deck though, so it's up to you if it's worth spending some extra money on it.

To avoid this comment being any more lengthy than it already is, here's an extensive list of some budget alternatives for the deck. The great thing about Muldrotha is that being able to replay removal makes a lot of sub-par removal actually pretty good, so it's pretty budget friendly.

Win-Conditions: What's in the deck isn't too expensive, but here's some cheaper options.

Removal:

Draw / Mill:

Tutors:

Ramp:

Control and other good stuff:

If you have any other questions about budget options, let me know. I'm always happy to help!

In case Mausoleum Wanderer turns out to be some sort of nonbo with Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive, such as if you have a second wanderer in hand and one wanderer available to swing and casting the second would run the first into blockers, Judge's Familiar with the Siren Stormtamers in the side might be interesting

Thanks for the interest, everyone.

mlequesne: I just couldn’t get a handle on the grixis mana base, so rather than push out a poor effort I decided to forgo it and just stick with two colors. Lightning Skelemental is an awesome card, and it was originally part of the design, but it’ll have to wait. We do have Thunderkin Awakener though which is pretty much a reusable Unearth in this build!

Corrosive_Cat I hadn’t thought of including Mausoleum Wanderer, it might be a good replacement. Another user suggested Siren Stormtamer instead of Cursecatcher—would you still go with the spirit?

Hi there, really cool deck. I love the Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive + Combat Celebrant combo. I would suggest maybe 2 cards that might be a good alternative to what you have. I think Expressive Iteration might be a more efficient spell than Cathartic Reunion. Additionally, I would also consider swapping Cursecatcher with Siren Stormtamer. Maybe the one blue mana cost is too steep but I believe it will protect your guys better. Anyways, love the creativity.
