SufferFromEDHD - no worries, no worries - Bazaar of Baghdad - I had The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale for my Group Hate, Esper Edition Deck so I am able to understand price wise and because like 5-6 cards under like $5, the rest are at least $10+ - mainly Chains of Mephistopheles that I'm after (Gotta love Energy Flux + Kataki, War's Wage against artifacts [sneakily grins])

I would also like to see what other lands could fill the spot of the tron lands in this deck. I rarely if ever assemble tron and there are many other lands that I could play in this slot. Clear favorites include The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Bazaar of Baghdad, and Mishra's Workshop, but I am looking for lands that aren't as expensive. Lands such as Lotus Vale, Barbarian Ring, Ghost Quarter, Mutavault, Spire of Industry, Balduvian Trading Post, Gemstone Caverns, and lands like Keldon Necropolis or Blighted Gorge are all replacement options. Anyone have experience running these lands in a more competitive environment and have any tips?

I feel like you have an aggressive deck, but it comes out too late without any control to back it up.

You will struggle turns 1,2,3, and sometimes 4.
Turns 5,6,7 you will be doing alright, but if you had a bad 1,2,3,4 you will be playing catch up on 4,6,7.
Turn 8,9,10. You don't have anything to carry you except Raksha and Jedit.

I play tested about 7 or 8 times and only drew one piece of equipment

A strong addition, if you can more reliably acquire equipment, Kemba, Kha Regent

Consider, either in addition to or replacing Raksha, Adaptive Automaton, Angel of Jubilation, Benalish Marshal.

Call to Arms or Crusade (Situational, but at 2 cmc these are good card).or other similar.

This deck would do better with faster lands. I found myself trapped for mana sometimes until turn five because of the double lands.

Now I say all this, but I'm rusty. I forget what five + player multiplayer games are like.

Drawing mechanics or fetching mechanics would help.

A couple drawing mechanicsAnvil of Bogardan, Abundant Growth (will help lands as well), Bargaining Table, Bazaar of Baghdad, Farsight Mask. Or something else. I'm not good with white/green.

Viscera Seer and/or Yahenni, Undying Partisan in place of Carrion Feeder.

No. The Scry 1 is mediocre compared to how huge feeder can get in this build. Additionally Seer doesnt win with mikeaus, the unhallowed & Puppeteer Clique while Feeder does. Yahenni was never a consideration. 3 mana vs 1 mana is a major deal, as is not being able to sacrifice itself like the Feeder can. The Feeders primary purpose is to come down early & Flip Liliana, while also not being a dead draw in the late game.

Withered Wretch in place of Nezumi Graverobberstrong text.

No. The double black casting cost is much worse in the early game where many of my early ramp is cards like Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, & Ancient Tomb, and I need to spend 2 Black on Liliana. Additionally Nighteyes has singlehandedly won me enough games that I would never consider this swap.

Corpse Augur in place of Disciple of Bolas.

No. Disciples biggest selling point is that its a sacrifice outlet that can flip Liliana on curve the turn after shes played.

Necromancy in place of Animate Dead (1 extra mana for a flash option).

Both Necromancy & Dance of the Dead are great reanimate spells, but I didnt need that many Animate Deads & I chose the option that required the least mana investment. If you value the more expensive Flash mode of Necromancy or the +1/+1 of Dance theyre fine options, just not the version I preferred.

Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed

Im not really sure what Id want him for. I mean, yes, he recurs Waste Not & spells, but hes super slow, super clunky, & Legendary so Liliana cant -X him.

Bazaar of Baghdad

Im eventually selling my left Kidney for a Chains of Mephistopheles, and Im told selling both kidneys will result in my death, so the odds I ever own a Bazaar are so low I havent bothered to even think about whether itd be worth including.

Diabolic Intent

I prefer it when my Tutors always work.

Phyrexian Reclamation

Great Card that I ran for a long time, but eventually cut to make room for other cards. May find its way back into the deck someday.

Torment of Hailfire (discard)

Why? Im not a big Mana deck, my Xs will not be that large, and people will just choose to eat the damage. The reason Death Cloud is so good is because an early Death Cloud for X = 3-6 after flipping Liliana in the first three turns is game ending. An Early Torment makes my opponents go k, take 12.

Kokusho for extra drainlife.

If he wasnt Legendary Id play him.

Vindictive Lich (discard)

Im not sure why I would play this. This card is pretty bad.

Hello! I like your deck and thus have a few questions:

Did you consider the following cards? :

What is your strategy against decks filled with artifacts or enchantments if they lay their cards before your manage to discard them? I don't see any good wipe against these strategies.

Same for graveyard shenanigans decks, Nezumi seems too slow against them.

Yeah it is scary and easier than it has any right to be to cast it on turn one with this deck. Out of curiosity which method got you there? Paradox Engine, a bunch of rocks, hasty Metalworker, or infinite turn one mana?

Thanks for the compliment some people do not understand how fast it is. (It is more like 25 lands one of those doesnt make mana; luckily it helps you dig for it though which is its job.Bazaar of Baghdad) You are right about early couterspell being a possible issue. The clocks paired with Null Brooch, being faster than an opponent can counter, and having backup rocks you can still afford to cast are its only way through it. Even a blue deck most of the time wants to play something on turn 1 and 2 to set up for better control in the next turns or set up a combo so you basically have to hope you are too fast to stop. I did put in everything else I could think of for protection though like Torpor Orb, Erratic Portal, and Darksteel Forge. If you have any ideas for better protection let me know but instant speed protection is not really a thing colorless does well.

Thanks for the quick response!

Can you tell me if there are any combos I am overlooking for Mimeo himself or if he is just there to represent Sultai colors? Any information about notable excludes would be great too. I picked up this deck with the exception of a few things like Bazaar of Baghdad, Underground Sea, and Tropical Island and I am just wondering if there are a few notable excludes that I could play over somethings outside of my price point. For example I own a copy of Diabolic Intent and I don't currently have a copy of Grim Tutor. One last thing I am curious about is how the FlashHulk string works without the inclusion of Phyrexian Delver.

Thank you for your time and the deck list!
