Dark Tutelage Discussion

Hi Ender666666 . Either of those would be suitable if you're holding onto the rest of the list. If you're using more budget replacements, you may also consider running Dark Tutelage to flow with the pace of a slower game. You can also replace it with something more meta dependent, like Conqueror's Flail or Phyrexian Revoker if it becomes meta necessary until you get the card.

Out of both options, however, I would be more inclined to run Diabolic Tutor, simply due to the low creature count in the deck making it rather unlikely you'll have the fodder you need for it's cost.

Here are some cards you might like: Dark Tutelage, Greed, Hatred, Anguished Unmaking, Tree of Perdition, Bloodgift Demon, Mother of Runes, Ob Nixilis Reignited.Also surprised you have 2 different Sorins, but not Sorin Markov? Hope this helps.

Take out 4x Despise, put in 4x Harsh Scrutiny in your sideboard (strictly better, still budget :D )

Put in 4x Dark Tutelage in main board (more reliable draw and more budget than Phyrexian Arena

Is there a reason you are playing Dark Tutelage over Phyrexian Arena?

Have you considered using Parallax Tide and/or Parallax Wave? Tide, when combined with atraxa, is similar to an Armageddon that doesn't hit you, and wave is a great way to remove all of your opponents threats. Also, since you have zur Dark Tutelage may be a better choice than dark confidant. If you end up having to cast it, it's 1 more mana to put the same effect on an enchantment and making it harder to kill. And if you get zur out first, you can tutor it out for free
