Despise Discussion

daseeker25 on Dimir Faeries with a splash of White

You have a good build with good synergy here. I just threw down some thoughts on cards that are hopefully all budget enough to consider. Most of these are super cheap on mtgo which makes that a good program to play on for brewing budget options. You are looking at up to $0.25 a card (usually much less) instead of $2

I like Glen Elendra Liege but why not drop those for two more Scion of Oona? You have no blue and black creatures and all your creatures are faeries so it seems much better. If you want more than 4 of those effects, then I would go to Glen Elendra Liege.

Have you considered Despise or Duress for other turn 1 plays? Inquisition of Kozilek is not too expensive if within budget. You do rely on throwing out creatures and swinging wide so perhaps not playing these is best.

Secluded Glen seems much better than Dismal Backwater but quite pricey. River of Tears may work well for you. Faerie Conclave may be a good option but I wouldn't play more than 2 because you do not want too many tapped lands in this build. Mutavault is a powerhouse in faeries with how it interacts with Spellstutter Sprite and in this case Thieving Sprite. However, 4 Mutavault cost more than the whole deck currently and as much as one Bitterblossom.

Your biggest fear is board wipes post sideboarding. I would recommend Spell Pierce, Negate, or Countersquall. I would also play Nihil Spellbomb in the sideboard for graveyard hate. I love Shadow of Doubt to hit fetchlands or combo decks but Squelch can be a fun budget option. Disdainful Stroke is also a very good budget counterspell.

Another upgrade path for this deck would be to focus on the go wide flying theme and splash white (perhaps use fast lands in esper colors). Key card is Pride of the Clouds while not a faerie becomes huge when you have a few faeries out. Spell Queller is also a good card that you cannot pass up if playing blue/white flyers. Selfless Spirit protects from board wipes. Adding in these cards decreases usefullness of Scion of Oona and may make sense to move back to Glen Elendra Liege

Mastermind's Acquisition is a strict upgrade over Diabolic Tutor due to it's ability to search your sideboard. Your early game seems weak to your opponent running over you. Inquisition of Kozilek is not too expensive and is amazing. Of course Thoughtseize is the card you want eventually. Budget options include Duress and Despise.

I don't like Thornbite Staff but would pair well with deathtouch. That being said Typhoid Rats seems like an auto-include

Budget sideboard reccomendations- 1 duress, four Despise, four Cry of Contrition, three Wrench Mind and three Languish/Mutilate. Just update your hate to match your opponent. In burn metas, you might want Golden Urn or w/e.

Looking to even out your manabase without breaking the bank? Grixis Panorama is almost playable, and there are various taplands with upsides.

I like the build, may consider Liliana's Caress instead of megrim and adding Despise to fend off planeswalkers

Duress & Despise can Target planeswalkers. Don't forget about Pithing Needle to shut down those pesky planeswalkers.

Yeah, I know both of those cards are good budget replacements. I would personally use Despise over Duress, but that’s just preference. I was considering vampires as a tribe, as well as some others. A ray deck could be interesting to play as well. Thanks!

Duress or Despise are valid budget replacements depending on which card types are more important to you. I personally love Tribal decks for magic the gathering. I'm a Vampire guy, but lately I've had tons of fun tinkering with rats. Rat Colony deck are super fun, and most people don't board the correct hate main deck. Just be wary post sideboard if y'all do that because the Colony dies to virtually every board wipe in the game. Haha
