i will try to make Green/Red kiki-jiki with Savage Summoning, it may really help againts control decks, and Green gives us Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl for ramping and fixing the mana. just need some replacement of Deceiver Exarch kind of creatures, Or try to make it Green/Red/Blue :)

Nah, Gaddock Teeg stops how many decks? What some storm payoffs like Aetherflux Reservoir? so it'll make Zur the Enchanter use a Snap on it on combo turn, big deal.

Really it sometimes hurts Captain Sisay's Paradox Engine and Teferi, Temporal Archmage's The Chain Veil occasionally, and most decks have good long-game and don't need to combo out immediately, waiting to remove it.

What decks do they need to stop? Protean Hulk, Hermit Druid, The Gitrog Monster, all 'when this creature dies' triggers, Most Pod lines with Karmic Guide, all of the reanimator/Worldgorger Dragon lines, like Kess Twin with their silly Intuition for Laboratory Maniac, Demonic Consultation & Reanimate or Buried Alive for Phyrexian Delver, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, and Deceiver Exarch. It hurts so much of the fast-combo decks, and is in incredible hatebears colors, I don't think it is just 'on par' with Gaddock Teeg, Gaddock Teeg would have to be lucky to be 'on par' with Anafenza, the Foremost.

Oh yeah, with Captain Sisay, Anafenza, the Foremost also shuts down the main Paradox Engine, Bontu's Monument, Mikaeus, the Lunarch/Saffi Eriksdotter, Captain Sisay, Bow of Nylea line for infinite damage by constantly recasting Mikaeus, the Lunarch/Saffi Eriksdotter from recurring it.

Personally I don't like infinite combos in EDH, but if your crew is cool with it then I have no criticism. I'm no the best with competitive deck lists, but a suggestion for the deck could be Deceiver Exarch for additional combo potential. Plus one from me +1

In my humble opinon unless you have some other novel idea to break dragons - beside sarkhan - one of his + abilities is garbage.

Despite that he is a perfectly good "must be dealt with" walker, his other +1 is reliable card filtering, which is very strng (and for some reason undervalued), while his ultimate is game winning.

Wall of Omens (just like Deceiver Exarch) is not what is used to be, since the printing of various delve creatures like Gurmag Angler & Hollow One - as with enough build around any deck can have a bigass beater that eats that wall alive, not just GBx goodstuff that costs so much you need to sell a liver to play it....

MWorl91 This isn't really Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker based deck and i don't want dead cards in my deck. It's simple as that. Pestermite and Deceiver Exarch are straight up dead cards outside of combo.

You are in the colors for Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch.

If you are running a Winter Orb package, having a way to tap those down at the end of the turn before you is extremely powerful. KillSwitch is my favorite.

You don't need Deceiver Exarch, Crafty Cutpurse or Stunt Double in the deck. I know it's an expensive card but Leyline of Anticipation is a better fit than Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, The leyline is cheaper mana wise to cast and isn't going to draw the board hate Teferi will get.

Also consider a Rogue's Passage

Also 20 Basic lands is not going to cut it, you want about 32 to 40 lands (38 is the sweet spot) and another 8 accelerates, Enchantment, Artifacts, Sorceries, ect that gets more Ramp and or land draw.

Aphoticate okay, I'll give it to you straight. What do you recur using Buried Alive to instantly win the game in The Scarab God, in Sedris, I fetch Phyrexian Delver, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, and Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch, then I pay 3, recur the Phyrexian Delver, to recur Kiki-Jiki, tap him to copy the delver, recur Pestermite, and win.

Okay? Yes Scarab God has other combos, but each and every one I have seen hasn't been fully fetchable from a single card and goes off with one reanimation effect. No Buried Alive or Intuition line I have ever seen in Dimir is that powerful. Each one in requires double the setup, setting them about a turn or a turn and a half back in average speed, leading it to be a tier or more lower.

Yes, people run 1-2 color decks, but they don't run 1-2 color reanimation combo decks in cEDH, look at the best decks in the format, mono-green brostorm with Selvala or Yisan, high tide, Azami combo, and Chain Veil Teferi aren't reanimator lists, so of course they can run mono-colored. That isn't an applicable argument to claim your reanimator deck doesn't need to be in three colors because an unrelated deck isn't.

The Scarab God can be built to be a very powerful deck, but use it as a stax deck with good countermagic and removal, you know, like a dimir control-stax build, and work it from there. Use its abilities to scry with decent card selection and you'll do much better than reanimator. Without grixis, reanimator fails most of the time, with extreme minor exceptions.
