Brainspoil Discussion

Have you considered Brainspoil? It can tutor up Thrumming Stone and a few other nice cards from your deck, but it can also be used as removal if you need it.

You could consider Patriarch's Bidding. You have a lot of creatures and their all most all the same creature type, so you would get the most value from this card. Also if you manage to combo off with Thrumming Stone and dump like 15 rats in play, but get hit with a board clear, this will make for a nice recovery.

You should also consider running some tutor effects for your Thrumming Stone. A good one is Brainspoil. It is a cheap tutor both in terms of money and mana and will fetch both Thrumming Stone and Patriarch's Bidding. Though even if you don't have a card to look for, it can be used as removal in the late game.

Then of course is the old throw backs if a budget isn't a concern Demonic Tutor.

I see you're already using a few excellent tutors - how about a Brainspoil? It's transmute effect is not counterable (without a Stifle effect), and it grabs Exquisite Blood, Sanguine Bond, and a handful of other goodies.

The 'transmute' tutors work well. Brainspoil, Shred Memory, and Dimir Machinations are all uncounterable (save for Stifle and the like.

Good 'ol Baneslayer Angel would be a good addition.

The transmute tutors can be nice to grab specific pieces, and they can't be countered w/out a Stifle effect.

Brainspoil, Dimir House Guard, Shred Memory, Dimir Machinations

An Entomb, and Buried Alive would be helpful.

The transmute tutors are nice to grab specific pieces:

Dimir House Guard, Brainspoil, Shred Memory, and Dimir Machinations.
