Villainous Wealth Discussion
1 month ago
I'd cut all the signets/mana rocks since you're trying to have a critical mass of creatures. I would also suggest you run cheap dorks like Birds of Paradise and Elves of Deep Shadow. + I'd also cut Cauldron of Eternity, I just don't like the shuffle effect. As for just straight cuts, Villainous Wealth is kind of useless here. It doesn't synergize, and it takes forever to get a decent rate, or you might just whiff and hit nothing. God-Eternal Bontu seems risky as you might find it hard to sacrifice anything if you aren't doing well on the board. Mikaeus is kind of a weird pick without Triskelion, as without the combo he kind of just sits there and is just an 'ok' reanimator target. You might also want to cut Crypt of Agadeem as you already have a pretty efficient mana base and crypt's activated ability won't always be useful. Going down to 33 lands (counting the mdfc) likely won't hurt. Tasigur is also a weird fit here since his ability is best when you have less cards in your graveyard (I am referring to both his delve and his activated ability), so it's a slight 'non-bo'. Acolyte of Affliction just looks silly compared to the other mill pieces in the deck.
Some cards that I might cut but I think are ultimately up to your preference (moreso than my other suggestions) are Whisper, Skull Prophet, and Stitch together. Gitrog monster also has the problem of royally screwing over your mana base every once in a while. I would also stop consider Blightsteel Colossus as you can't reanimate it.
Sorry if this long comment is intimidating, I just think this is a pretty cool list and I wanna see it's final form.

DoctorLovehammer Thanks! He has quickly become one of my favorites in my rotation. I built the deck to steal stuff but every time I play him he pops off pretty quick before I get to troll my play group with a Villainous Wealth or a Mass Manipulation

I‘m really surprised nobody has yet mentioned that High Alert and Axebane Guardian give infinite mana when having 4 other walls on the field. So definitely no need for the Staff of Domination . Which is why Villainous Wealth and Genesis Wave are missing here.
Also, I think it would be really funny and add some more flavor to add Aurification (even though it’s not a good card) making your opponents creatures to walls which can’t attack while yours can...
In case anyone cares, this is my attempt on a wall deck: Budget Walls

When it comes to infinite mana win conditions, Villainous Wealth is not good. You're better off playing Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire . Both of these cards are A) are easier to cast, B) add more value outside of combo than Villainous Wealth and C) Actually win you the game.
If you're looking to use Laboratory Maniac though, you're better off working to a consistent theme and just using Jace, Wielder of Mysteries / Thassa's Oracle . Then you can just run a Time Warp + Eternal Witness + Sac Outlet or Mystic Sanctuary + Sac Outlet loop.
Asa general rule as well, if you can generate infinite mana, the preference is to add coloured mana. I know hte Lion's Eye Diamond combo is expensive (since you ned LED) but you could run something like Eternal Witness + Ghostly Flicker + Peregrine Drake . Play E-Wit, get flicker, flicker E-Wit and Muldrotha (getting back flicker), play drake, win from there.

Hello everyone! I have a Muldrotha, the Gravetide deck and I like it a lot. However, it is the first commander deck I have ever built, and to say the least its not great. I have good cards to outvalue my opponents and work with Muldrotha, but I lack in the win condition area. I have decided to get some upgrades for that. Here is what I am planning to get:
Is there any other semibudget combos that I have left out?
