Deathcult Rogue Discussion

I know you like the prowl machanic but have you seen considered any of these?Corrosive Mentor, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Nezumi Graverobber, Shadow Alley Denizen, Deathcult Rogue ?

first off, i would argue that cards like Stinkdrinker Bandit and Oona's Blackguard are rogue lords and have the adaptive lords Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic

next on to suggestions, while its not a rogue per say, Corrosive Mentor could add an extra punch to your non-evasive deck, making opponents wary of blocking with larger creatures.

Deathcult Rogue, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Inkfathom Infiltrator, Marsh Flitter(comboes especially well with oona's black guard) and Zulaport Cutthroat all have their uses and can be powerful in the right variant of mono-black rogues. (although i think you get the most power from u/b artifact rogues)

Merrow Bonegnawer seems like especially good sb tech against dredge/delirium/graveyard type decks.

You can't include the Deathcult Rogue because it has a blue and black color identity

Thanks UnkindledOne! I like those suggestions, but Deathcult Rogue was in an earlier version of this deck, tho as you said, it might work with Trepanation Blade. Still got my playset of them, might as well check and see how they work.Dismal Backwater will surely go instead of the gates, along with some sorrow for losing flavor... haha!But I'd like to hear what would you use as sideboard on it, if it's not much trouble...

It's not the best ability wise but for flavor reasons you should include a couple cultists.

Blood Cultist literally has them drinking and that flavor text...

Other potential cultists: Death Cultist, Deathcult Rogue, Exultant Cultist, Kill-Suit Cultist, and Skirsdag Cultist

As for cards that synergize with nekusar, have you considered Fevered Visions? Seems like the sort of card you'd want.

Seeing as how you have multiple wheel effects, there is some consideration to Megrim and Liliana's Caress

Wheel and Deal is a pretty good wheel effect and if you really need to you can have it only target yourself.

I like the deck! You might consider adding Duskmantle Guildmage for an infinite combo with Mindcrank.

Also, Dismal Backwater does the exact same thing as Dimir Guildgate, except Dimir Guildgate does not get you that 1 life. Dismal Backwater is cheaper (although only by 3 cents) anyways.

Deathcult Rogue might work well with Trepanation Blade too.

I like it quite a bit, definitely gets a +1 from me!

slaftergames on Death from the Shadows (Rogue Tribal)

I had him in for a long time, but took him out for several interconnected reasons. My first concern is that the Banneret doesn't make him any cheaper since there aren't any uncolored mana in his cost. From this it follows that the Deathcult Rogue is going to cost less than one mana more on average (three without the Banneret, two with), and his 2 toughness makes that fraction of a mana well worth it (as playtesting these guys against the Izzet and that crafty Staticaster has demonstrated - hence the sideboard). Also I'm trying to fix the curve as much as possible, which means I can't afford any more two drops unless I exchange one for another.

I could see him coming back in someday though, I've been trying to increase damage output and he'd help in that regard.

Inkfathom Infiltrator is strictly better than Deathcult Rogue

Dimir Infiltrator is better than Dimir House Guard and still retains transmute.

Sygg, River Cutthroat Deserves a place in the deck because of all of the unblockable.

Thassa, God of the Sea also deserves a place in the deck because of all of the blue symbols that would be in play.

Dissolve is also a much better card than Cancel

Changes I would consider:

-4 Deathcult Rogue

-1 Dimir House Guard

-2 Inkfathom Witch

-1 Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker

-1 Midnight Recovery

-2 Cancel

+1 Dimir Infiltrator

+2 Sygg, River Cutthroat

+2 Thassa, God of the Sea

+2 Dissolve

+4 Inkfathom Infiltrator
