Echoing wallisface, budget aggro lives or dies by casting 1 mana spells as fast as possible.

If you move to straight rakdos colours, you lose only Daring Saboteur and Frantic Inventory , while your mana becomes a lot more reliable.

With the land set here, I'd go so far as to run almost entirely 1 colour with splashes for higher cmc spells.

A few options; Deadeye Tracker + Grasping Scoundrel + Outcast with a focus on 1 and 2 mana black spells - Kitesail Freebooter in particular is good in a black shell with other sources of discard.

Rigging Runner + Daring Buccaneer + Fanatical Firebrand will work well with a focus on fast damage partucularly spells that deal direct damage and like creatures. I'd look at Captain Ripley Vance and the budget staple Curse of Stalked Prey alongside sources of evasion.

Blue as a primary colour has some neat options if you want to go for a more instant-speed tempo game - Siren Stormtamer , Spectral Sailor , & Brineborn Cutthroat , while opening up sideboard tricks like Crafty Cutpurse and cheap past staples like Mana Leak .

There are a few notable pirates to build combos around - Skyship Plunderer , Timestream Navigator , but they don't have a coherent theme which will make builds awkward.

Ah, I just remembered why Timestream Navigator was in there. It comboed with Mirrorpool . I've now also removed Mirrorpool for another basic land.

Upgrades: Removed Timestream Navigator (don't remember why she went into the deck in the first place) for Nissa of Shadowed Boughs . Swapped out some suboptimal fetchlands that only fetch one possible color for those that fetch either/or, and dropped other subotpimal fetches for basic lands just to have something to fetch.

Guerric on Inalla Arch-Rage Ritualist

Hi kimosabe! There are some interesting cards here, and Sedraxis Alchemist in particular seems like a great one that I wasn't aware of. I think my main thought here is actually just that you're pretty light on ramp, with really only Sol Ring and Arcane Signet . Inalla is especially mana hungry because if you want to use her ability, you essentially need to add one to the cmc of all of your wizards. Generally we want to have at least ten pieces of ramp in any deck, so I'd definitely add a suite of signets, talismans, and stones along with maybe Burnished Hart and Wayfarer's Bauble and you should be all set. Because adding eight cards will result in cuts, it might be helpful to decide whether you want to go with a more controlling approach or a wizards tribal approach. If you go with the former, cut more wizards keeping only the best ones and if you go with the latter, cut down on your instants and sorceries. This will also help you decide which wizards are best. In the control build, for instance, Adeliz, the Cinder Wind and Docent of Perfection  Flip are great, and while I think Scholar of the Ages is too high-costed for any build personally, adding Salvager of Secrets and/or Izzet Chronarch is a good call. In the Wizards tribal approach, Adeliz and Docent aren't great and we're probably good with just Archaeomancer for instant and sorcery recursion.

You probably also want to think about wincons. Wizards aren't great attackers, so combos of some form are usually the way to go. You currently have the Ghostly Flicker combo with either Dualcaster Mage or Naru Meha, Master Wizard , though the latter doesn't win on her own and while you have Blue Sun's Zenith as a mana sink, I'd consider adding Comet Storm or the like. You might also want to add Solve the Equation as an inexpensive tutor for Ghostly Flicker . If you add Ashnod's Altar , you'll have another win con since it can go infinite with Inalla and Bloodline Necromancer , which you already have. In addition to this, Wanderwine Prophets and Timestream Navigator can win on their own with Inalla's ability and enough mana. Additionally, if you are going with the control build, Intruder Alarm is a great card which you can use with Inalla's ability to drain people out without technically going infinite.

ninja8244 on Another Muldrotha deck

I suggest you go the way of combos with muldrotha. She has access to a lot of cheap tutors such as Entomb and Buried Alive . Some combos that are good include:

  1. The first combo uses Altar of Dementia + Kaya's Ghostform + Muldrotha, the Gravetide . How this combo works is you play Kaya's Ghostform on Muldrotha, the Gravetide then sacrifice her to Altar of Dementia targeting an opponent. In order for this combo to truly go infinite is by also having either Pitiless Plunderer or Lotus Petal in play to use for the one black mana on Kaya's Ghostform .
  2. The second combo that I find to be the easiest to pull off is Demonic Consultation + Thassa's Oracle . This one is pretty self explainatory; you play Thassa's Oracle than before it resolves you play Demonic Consultation naming a card that is not in your deck. After you exile your graveyard, everything resolves and you win! This also works with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries in place of Thassa's Oracle
  3. The last combo is Muldrotha, the Gravetide + Llanowar Elves + Timestream Navigator + Prime Speaker Vannifar. This combo is the most complicated so here we go. First things first, you need all four creatures on the battlefield with no summoning sickness, as well as having enough permanents for the city's blessing. Next, you activate Timestream Navigator , taking an extra turn. While you are still on the first turn you float a green with Llanowar Elves then sacrifice the elves to Prime Speaker Vannifar . With Prime Speaker Vannifar you go and find Timestream Navigator and then recast Llanowar Elves with the floating green mana. After this, you should have infinite turns, which you should be able to pull a with.

On the planeswalker front Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is super good as a wincon. Value-wise Ashiok, Dream Render , Tamiyo, Collector of Tales , Teferi, Master of Time , and our favorite elk friend Oko, Thief of Crowns all work really well with Muldrotha.

Cypher35 on Muldrotha Wincons/Infinite Combos

6 months ago

I've been playing my muldrotha deck for about 2 years now, and here's some of my favorite combos to use

Muldrotha, the Gravetide + Timestream Navigator + Cellar Door to get infinite turns/zombie tokens

Muldrotha, the Gravetide + Mindslaver works best in a 1 v 1 but can be a useful political tool and can help take a player out of the game.

and any other wincon works around cards like Mesmeric Orb , Fraying Sanity (cast on self) Mirror-Mad Phantasm , Altar of Dementia , and one of either Jace, Wielder of Mysteries or Laboratory Maniac ( Thassa's Oracle also works but I haven't gotten my hands on a copy yet so it's not in the deck) and simply works to get as many cards in my graveyard and then win with the Lab/jace.

there's a lot of strategies and EDHREC has a great page dedicated to combos within certain commanders or color archetypes, so I'll link muldrotha's here

hope this helps!

DemonDragonJ on Why is WotC Not Allowing …

Omniscience_is_life, in the case of Timestream Navigator , that creature has strict requirements in order to use its ability, and then the player must use a tutor spell to retrieve it, to use its ability again, and blue is not the color that specializes in finding creatures from libraries.

What if there was a variant of Time Sieve that required sacrificing of creatures or payment of life? Would such a card be balanced?
