Lab Druid, Wielder of Mysteries! (Muldrotha EDH)

Commander / EDH BUG (Sultai) Combo Goodstuff Infinite Combo


This deck is currently being edited. While most the combos will stay the same just know that some may change. Thank you!

First I just want to start by saying this:


That is all. Please continue reading.

I've created Muldrotha, the Gravetide but as a combo deck. While the deck runs more non-permanents then you'd normally see in a Muldrotha deck I believe it is well worth it! Plus with release of Dominaria, and with Muldrotha being my favorite legend from the set, I wanted to create a deck with her. I've put together a mana ramp, combo-filled, good stuff deck. Below I've listed the combos and the intended way to win with this deck.

This section needs to be updated!

1 Grim Monolith , or Basalt Monolith plus Power Artifact generates infinite colorless mana

2 Combo 1 through 4 combined with Gemstone Array generates infinite colored mana of any color

3 Infinite mana from steps 1 through 4 plus Stroke of Genius , or Thrasios, Triton Hero draws your deck

4 Muldrotha, Lion's Eye Diamond , and Phantasmal Image Creates infinite mana allows you to win the game. Check the next accordion block for the full details.

5 MAIN WIN CON: Have Laboratory Maniac on the field (Or flash him in with Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir or Alchemist's Refuge . If he's in the grave play him with Muldrotha, the Gravetide or Necromancy ) and then draw your deck with Stroke of Genius to win the game.

6 MAIN WIN CON: Play Hermit Druid and mill your library into your grave. Have Laboratory Maniac on the field (If he's in the grave play him with Muldrotha, the Gravetide ). Then Flashback Think Twice to win the game.

7 SUB WIN CON: Exsanguinate plus combos 1 through 4 can kill each opponent.

8 SUB WIN CON: Walking Ballista plus combos 1 through 4 can kill every opponent.

WhenI first heard of the Lion's Eye Diamond and Muldrotha combo from Megalomania I was super confused. After some explanation and thinking, I came up with this:

-Have Muldrotha and Hermit Druid in play.

-Use Hermit Druid to put your deck in the grave.

-Cast Lion's Eye Diamond from your hand and tap it for Blue.

-Then recast Lion's Eye Diamond using Muldrotha's Ability and tap it again for Black.

-Cast Phantasmal Image targeting Muldrotha and sacrifice the original Muldrotha to the grave.

-Play Lion's Eye Diamond again using the token of Muldrotha and tap it again for Green.

-Play the original Muldrotha from the grave and sacrifice Phantasmal Image

-Then repeat. You'll net BUG mana and generate infinite mana. From here you can play Lab Man from your graveyard and flashback Think Twice or play Snapcaster Mage to play another draw spell.

However, Megalomania offered this explanation:

-You cast LED from the graveyard

-Tap it for blue to cast Phantasmal Image copying Muldothra. This allows you to send the original Muldothra to the graveyard.

-Re-cast LED, tap for black to cast Necromancy targeting the original Muldothra.

-With Muldothra now in play, you send Phantasmal Image back to the graveyard and re-start the loop. Each repetition leaves you with one blue mana, eventually allowing you to cast Labman and Think Twice , or Snapcaster Mage to flashback a draw spell for the win.

Both Strategies are good. The second strategy is arguably better because you can cast LED from the grave or your hand for the combo to work; however, with the first combo you can cast more than just lab man because you have mana of each other netted. Either way both works. I hope this explanation helps!

This is by far not 100% paper. With the cost of fetchs, duals, and other misc. cards I'm very close to this deck complete. I do want to get rid of the gold-bordered cards at some point. Here are the cards my gold-bordered cards and the cards I'm currently proxying:

Gold Bordered Cards

Gaea's Cradle

Force of Will

Grim Monolith

Proxied Cards

Toxic Deluge

Polluted Delta

Command Beacon

Verdant Catacombs

Sunken Ruins (I want the Expedition)

Lion's Eye Diamond

Mana Drain

And of course Tropical Island and

Underground Sea
