This looks like a fun control-y build for Muldrotha.

Freed from the Real feels limited here with only two creatures that have tap abilities, though. I get the infinite mana potential, but it still feels difficult to pull off with the number of cards you need to assemble.

Ashiok, Dream Render "draws" you four cards a turn and blanks opponents' graveyard strats. Plus by diversifying your threats across a greater distribution of permanent types, you get more value out of Muldrotha.

Is Daring Apprentice or Voidmage Prodigy better than running Arcane Denial with this setup?

Splinterfright is smaller than Lord of Extinction, but it gets through easier with trample and "draws" you two cards per turn.

And of course, Syr Konrad, the Grim.

I can't describe how refreshing it is to see an Abzan EDH deck that doesn't include Sun Titan, Acidic Slime or the Karmic Guide + Reveillark combo. It looks like you put actual creative thought into this deck, rather than simply spewing some EDHREC copypasta. Bravo!

I would recommend the following list, obviously for different reasons for each card:

And, if you want to spend the money on it, Phyrexian Altar

As for cuts to fit any of these in, I'd start by looking at your removal spells. You have a helluva lot of that. I don't know if it's your meta, but it seems like more than you need.

hi TheBooman i would definately suggest my older non-combo build.
Basically a self-mill deck packed lots of creatures like Boneyard Wurm,Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord,Splinterfright,Kessig Cagebreakers,Izoni, Thousand-Eyed,Hallowed Spiritkeeper and of course Brawn.
Other than that i don't have a good idea because i am actaully trying to improve the combo and those cards although really good they are a little slow for my playgroup.

You don't need Rancor. You've got Splinterfright.

Keep it simple. Get cards in the grave. Play cheap big creatures that put Tarmogoyf to shame. Use your creatures to take care of whatever problems you have.

4 Hedron Crab 4 Stitcher's Supplier, 4 Satyr Wayfinder Wayfinder is better. You want that land in your hand or on the battlefield. You don't want a dead draw into a land. You need to draw fuel.

Artisan Fiend, Spinterfright and Nighthowler can all be snatched by Unearth. So...

4 Artisan Fiend 4 Splinterfright (your trampler) 3-4 Nighthowler, 4 Unearth

If you want to use Claim for redundancy, +4 Tarmogoyf or the +4 Boneyard Wurm. Myself, I like a little p/t in case they Relic or RIP. Keep it around til you get your answer. Maybe Grim Flayer? But if you play more 1-2cc ETB's, I could see more Claim. Try a 1 of Call of the Death-Dweller.

You've got all these cheap creatures in your deck. 2 Lazav, the Multifarious. Need answers? Eldritch Evolution, 2 Neoform

What are your problems? Creatures. Artifacts. Enchantments. 1 Plague Engineer 2 Plaguecrafter 1 Reclamation Sage 1 Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Nameless Inversion Thrashing Brontodon
Costs three but he's got a 3/4 body so why not?

4 Force of Negation out of the side. You may want to board in 4 Force of Negation for RIP. I don't know how else you're going to beat it without a counterspell with Flashback. Play some number of Life from the Loam with Raven's Crime.

Late game shenanigans: Sidisi, Brood Tyrant or you could Neoform/Eldritch sooner. Genesis because that's awesome. Alt win: Laboratory Maniac

I don't know. Keep it together. Streamline the idea because the deck you'll be playing against, people have refined it to hell the past few years.

Side note - You can Collected Company these creatures. Imagine that. Not so good idea Nightmare Shepherd. Eh idea Creeping Chill Maybe out of the side? Burn is real.

Hi fellow necromancer centaur, you can try: 1.Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord + Splinterfright / Golgari Grave-Troll / Nighthowler and similar creatures and bomb the entire table.
2.Kessig Cagebreakers / Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
3.Vizkopa Guildmage + Gnaw to the Bone and one shot the entire table
4. By far my favorite is Magister of Worth. Both effects benefit you and if they pick the mass reanimation you can sacrifice her in response to her trigger, she goes to the graveyard and you get to stack it so she enters last so you get 1 more time the trigger, you can politic you way through it. Really amazing card


and if you are having trouble with blue mages and combo Mindslicer. I cant count how many games he has won me.

my a little more tuned and combo deck: Karador Hulkweaver Chieftain

Isn't this backwards of how these leagues normally work? I thought the winner is the only one that doesn't get the budget bump, so the most powerful deck doesn't snowball.

Anyway, Mindwrack Harpy is the most pushed intro deck card I've ever seen. That's my first add.

I also like putting in more creatures with ETB effects. It's kind of awkward that you'll want to tap mana dorks for Hogaak. Glowspore Shaman, Golgari Thug, Crow of Dark Tidings, Gamekeeper, and Mire Triton can all help get Hogaak out by turn 3 if you have a good turn 1 play.

There are a lot of good gold cards in BG graeyard stuff, too: If you have anyone that's relying on indestructibility, Drown in Filth is a good budget option to feed your graveyard. If you're built around Hogaak, I'd think it should regularly be a hard removal spell with upside. Nyx Weaver is just a great card in any graveyard deck, and cheap, too. Jarad's Orders is a good double-tutor. Underrealm Lich is worth the $2, in my opinion. I would also ask yourself whether Eternal Witness is $3.50 better than Acolyte of Affliction/Golgari Findbroker/Treasured Find. Storrev, Devkarin Lich didn't get much fanfare, but the power and price tag are there.

Animist's Awakening is good value at just over $1. World Shaper and Splendid Reclamation are a little more expensive, but higher impact than other $4-5 cards I see in the list. Lower on the ramp ladder, note that Harrow and Springbloom Druid put a land in the yard. Funeral Rites isn't a bad draw spell for this deck. Same for Winding Way, Gather the Pack and Relentless Pursuit. Syphon Mind doesn't have much to do with the theme, but I start with it in most of my black value decks. Dark Deal could be very good, especially if your draw power is maximized and you can use your yard as a second hand. Greenwarden of Murasa is just a powerful card. Same for Phyrexian Delver.

Some other general budget cards for considering: Ransack the Lab, Corpse Churn, Dead Reckoning, Grapple with the Past, Hatchery Spider, Millikin, Mindwrack Demon, Once and Future, Splinterfright, The Mending of Dominaria, Skullwinder, Blood for Bones, and Vigor Mortis.
