Have you considered a Devotion shell instead of a tron one? you could use Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Phyrexian Obliterator and Gray Merchant of Asphodel . Demigod of Revenge and Geralf's Messenger might also have a place in a devotion shell.

How often are you looking for more than one card with diabolic revelation? If it isn't often Dark Petition may be a little better.

Hey, nice start for a budget upgrade of the precon.

With Jeleva you don't have to go completely over the top with all splashy high mana cost spells, some is good. You can benefit from Jeleva by simply getting card advantage when she attacks from a low mana cost spell you exiled with her especially a draw spell such as Brainstorm or a tutor such as Gamble .

Budget cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

Lots of creatures goes against Jeleva's ability. If you have a lot of creatures then it makes it more difficult for you to hit an instant/sorcery to exile. You want to benefit from Jeleva's ETB ability too, not just exile your opponents spells.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Dimir Guildgate
  • Izzet Guildgate
  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Temple of the False God
  • Vivid Creek
  • Vivid Marsh
  • Baleful Strix
  • Dimir Doppelganger
  • Djinn Illuminatus
  • Fog Bank
  • Nekusar, the Mindrazer
  • Thraximundar
  • Tsabo Tavoc
  • Uyo, Silent Prophet
  • Vampire Nighthawk
  • Hypersonic Dragon
  • Fissure Vent
  • Liturgy of Blood
  • Molten Disaster
  • Tempt with Reflections
  • Annihilate
  • Price of Fame
  • Starstorm
  • Spiteful Visions
  • Illusionist's Gambit
  • Phthisis

If you like these suggestions then I offer more help. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Do you own the cards that are in the maybeboard? There's several there that are much better than cards in the main deck.

Consider building this Dimir deck with Sultai in mind? If your goal is to play Sultai with Tasigur or Muldrotha later on then my advice is get playable cards that you can use in those decks, but for the time being get blue, black and Dimir cards and play them here with budget good stuff self-mill/reanimation strategies. Good stuff being playable spells especially creatures who have good ETB (enter the battlefield) abilities. Tasigur and Muldrotha use self-mill strategies not opponent mill strategies. Tasigur and Muldrotha abilities only work with cards in your own graveyard. Self-mill is much more powerful than opponent mill in multiplayer Commander.

Budget cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding that you can use in Sultai with Tasigur or Muldrotha later on:

If you like this idea then I can further help you to change this deck to make it easier to convert it into Sultai later on, but for now still being a good Dimir deck with Scarab God as Commander. Let me know your thoughts, good luck.

Awesome deck! +1 for sure!

Doom Whisperer might be useful to fill your graveyard.

Smothering Abomination is a card drawing POWERHOUSE is a deck like this.

Decaying Soil might be a fun card to play around with... easy to get threshold and cheap to return stuff to hand. Lots of Deathrender combos too.

Final Parting could be a better Dark Petition in this deck. Doesn't give you mana back but basically tutors 2 cards instead of one, making it more flexible.

i like Dark Petition over diabolic tutor, if you can hit the threshold, its amazing.

This is frickin' hilarious and I'm jealous I didn't think of it first.

My own janky Knowledge Pool deck has given me some experience building around a single artifact. So based on my totally expert opinion here's some feedback:

I notice you primarily have equipment tutors but, aside from Spy Kit , no equipment. I'd swap most or all of those for less specific tutors so they're not dead cards once you find your Spy Kit. With access to any color, there are plenty to pick from. Gamble , Long-Term Plans , Demonic Tutor , and Dark Petition are all fine candidates that don't require a second mortgage. 2-cost Transmute spells like Muddle the Mixture and Dimir Infiltrator are also viable options.

Usually - in my experience - decks built around a single linchpin card either have some response for every vector of attack, or get repeatedly punked. Some suggestions to plug gaps in your defense:

Well that got a lot longer and more speculative than I intended. I'm just gonna bang out my remaining thoughts in disorganized rant form.

As an alternate way to set up the Eradicate play, you could temporarily steal a creature (e.g. with Traitorous Blood or whatever) and equip Spy Kit while it's under your control. It'll remain equipped when the creature returns to its owner.

Since like half of your name-abusing bomb cards are sorcery speed, stuff like Quicken and/or Alchemist's Refuge could really help with flexibility.

Personally, I think the expensive-ass dual lands are overkill for a fun experimental deck like this - I'd pack it with signets and tri-color lands, then buy myself a car with the money I saved. Sure, the deck would ramp slightly slower. But it would be more resistant to MLD, and have more targets for artifact tutors; and I could store it in my spare car.

Anyway in summary: Awesome deck idea, exactly the type of silly nonsense that makes this game fun!
