legendofa no worries about being pushy, and you are right, connecting dmg could be a problem with this deck. I think Thriving Grove may be my best bet for a red source. Just because it supplies green as well and can be swapped out for Temple of Malady, may need another red source as well though. I think Kessig Wolf Run may be the best fit for the deck of the 3 you brought up due to its ability to also buff the moths, replacing Pendelhaven’s limited uses, as Pendelhaven is extremely restrictive in that it can only buff the moths and and only so much.

1 - Mana and Ramp:

Muldrotha, the Gravetide is a 6 CmC sultai commander. He's an expensive commander and most of the time even more mana you'll need to activate his abilities.

I want Muldrotha quickly on the field, especially if I've already fed the graveyard... And to be quick I need lands that don't waste my time. If the theme is not Lands, I don't put many lands in the deck because muldrotha doesn't bring advantages to these permanents, that is, if you've already played a land from the graveyard, you won't be able to play one from your hand or vice versa. I prefer mana rocks or mana creatures because they can give muldrotha something else to use beyond mana...

Why have Opulent Palace or Temple of Deceit/Temple of Malady and then have the powerful Lake of the Dead in the lands list? My advice: try to use lands that give you an advantage when you put them on the field because you will have many cards that will benefit, being the muldrotha one of them.

There are some better budget lands than the ones you are currently running. I've put parentheses around some that aren't quite as cheap and bolded the ones that are definitely in your price range.

Painlands: Llanowar Wastes, (Karplusan Forest)

Check lands: Dragonskull Summit, Rootbound Crag, (Woodland Cemetery)

MDFC lands: Cragcrown Pathway  Flip, (Blightstep Pathway  Flip), (Darkbore Pathway  Flip)

Scry lands: Temple of Malady, Temple of Malice, Temple of Abandon

Necrotic Ooze doesn't fit here as you barely have any activated abilities on your creatures, and no real way to get them into your graveyard either.

You're never going to get delirium for Inexorable Blob with no fetchlands, 3 artifacts, 3 enchantments, and zero sorceries.

Simic Initiate is just a bad one drop, and not even an ooze. If you don't mind running non-ooze 1-drops, then run Pelt Collector . Probably better off running none because 4x Experiment One + 3x Hardened Scales + 3x Ozolith is enough in my opinion, could be useful if you want to lower your curve.

Predator Ooze and Scavenging Ooze are like the only actually good and cheap oozes, and they synergize with the counter theme. I see no reason to run less than a playset.

Acidic Slime is another good ooze.

Corpsejack Menace feels too slow for me, if you really want more hardened scales effects run Winding Constrictor .

Fatal Push way better than Putrefy .

Agree with Corrosive Ooze for hammertime but that's only if you actually decide to make a sideboard -- I don't think this is needed since this is clearly a casual deck.

I assume you didn't add expensive lands due to budget constraints. Some cheaper lands are MDFC lands Darkbore Pathway  Flip, check lands Woodland Cemetery , scry lands Temple of Malady , pain lands Llanowar Wastes .

Hey, well done with your casual version of Lathril.

Consider one drop mana Elves especially Elves of Deep Shadow ? Shadow can make black mana to cast Lathril. These Elves give a big advantage for the tribe with ramp and when they aren't being used for ramp use them to get counters faster on Quest, with Lathril's tap ability or just have more Elves for Priest/Archduid, etc.

Other sources of ramp could be cut for these such as Cultivate , Harvest Season other cards Steel Leaf Champion , Nath of the Gilt-Leaf and Endless Atlas .

Llanowar Wastes , Unclaimed Territory , Necroblossom Snarl , Temple of Malady , Tainted Wood are some budget land upgrades. These could replace Swamps, Shimmerdrift Vale , Jungle Hollow and The World Tree . Undergrowth Stadium , Overgrown Tomb , Twilight Mire , Gilt-Leaf Palace , Woodland Cemetery and Wirewood Lodge are some expensive price land upgrades.

Good luck with your deck.

Aight so we've got some cuts to make! So I think a good benchmark to shoot for off the bat is 36 lands and 64 non-lands, though with the sheer number of transform lands you have you might be fine at 34 or 35 - I would NOT recommend going that low until you've played a respectable number of games or playtest hands (probably at least 4 games and 30 playtest hands) and you have a solid understanding of how consistently you come in with too few lands.

As far as the cuts, I'd say drop: Rushed Rebirth , Ecological Appreciation , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Silent Sentinel , Resolute Archangel , Aegis of the Gods , Path of Discovery , Shapers' Sanctuary , Springleaf Drum , Perpetual Timepiece , Accomplished Alchemist , Call for Unity OR Collective Blessing (probably the latter), Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant / Rune-Tail's Essence , Elixir of Immortality , Heliod, God of the Sun , Huatli, Radiant Champion . I can give you my rationale one-by-one if you like.

Then add three lands, possibly modal spell-lands like Agadeem's Awakening  Flip. Ideally, more of your lands should be multiple colours, as you have a large colour cost burden in black and white especially (lots of cards that need two or three of the same colour). The cheapest options are the snow taplands, guildgates, refuge lands (give 1 life when they enter the battlefield), and the showlands from Shadows over Innistrad and Strixhaven. There are definitely some mid-range lands that you can pick up for less than $10 that should be a high priority for you: Sunpetal Grove and Godless Shrine to fill out your buddy and shockland sets, the three scrylands a la Temple of Malady , Murmuring Bosk , Canopy Vista , and Scattered Groves . Since your deck doesn't currently have many ways to fetch basic lands, you really shouldn't have many since your colour demands are so high. Also definitely be on the lookout for legendary lands that fit into the deck well! Those will be sweet.

Hey, well done in progress on a low budget.

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Mana dorks are better than land ramp spells with Meren because they can be ramp first and then be fodder to give her experience. One drop mana dorks could also replace some lands. Viscera Seer is a nice sac outlet since it's a creature who can sac itself. Burning-Rune Demon is a new card from Kaldheim who can be a repeatable Final Parting with a 6/6 flying body.


Some cards to consider cutting:

  • 8x Swamp
  • 1x Forest
  • Ambition's Cost
  • Kodama's Reach
  • Cultivate
  • Dimir House Guard
  • Corpse Connoisseur
  • Aphotic Wisps

Good luck with your deck.
