Diabolic Intent Discussion

BoozeUsually No problem.

I'll start with Phyrexian Delver he can be replaced with Body Double which he has been in this case. As for the lands honestly just basics or maybe one filter land and some basics are fine. As for replacing Grim Tutor something like Diabolic Intent would be fine and honestly anything you think might do well in your meta. As the weakest tutor it's pretty flex.

Thanks for the quick response!

Can you tell me if there are any combos I am overlooking for Mimeo himself or if he is just there to represent Sultai colors? Any information about notable excludes would be great too. I picked up this deck with the exception of a few things like Bazaar of Baghdad, Underground Sea, and Tropical Island and I am just wondering if there are a few notable excludes that I could play over somethings outside of my price point. For example I own a copy of Diabolic Intent and I don't currently have a copy of Grim Tutor. One last thing I am curious about is how the FlashHulk string works without the inclusion of Phyrexian Delver.

Thank you for your time and the deck list!

While we're on the topic of card prices, I assume that's the reason you've got Cruel Tutor over Imperial Seal? (400+ bucks for an inferior Vampiric Tutor? Jeez.)

(Also I guess you've intentionally rejected Grim Tutor & Diabolic Tutor for their extra cost and Diabolic Intent because the deck's only expendable creatures are Ophiomancer tokens.)

Slymaster9 on Alesha 4.0

Today I took another look at my land base.Currently I run 13 basic lands (4W, 5B, 4R). This is a lot in any non-green deck.Also there are 3 lands that can be upgraded. Nomad Outpost,Windbrisk Heights and Opal Palace. I have found a few upgrades. I will be adding both filterlands that contain Red, I don't see much value in filtering between white and black, which I often want both. But changing red into these will be a good change. These will both replace one basic land ( Rugged Prairie replaces a Plains and Graven Cairns replaces the fourth mountain)
Path of Ancestry works as a strictly better Nomad Outpost so it will replace the outpost (which will be the last land that enters tapped).

Windbrisk Heights will be replaces by my Diabolic Intent, 36 lands overall without Fast Mana rocks I hope to be enough.

Once I obtain one, I will replace Opal Palace with Phyrexian Tower. Both etb untapped and the Tower is a powerhouse piece I have long chased after.

The fifth Swamp will be replaced by Foreboding Ruins

Which leaves the basic count instead at 10 (3W,4B,3R)There is one last upgrade to the mana base I would want to make, which is add the third and final OG Dual Land, Badlands replacing the fourth swamp. Bringing all basic lands to a neat 3/3/3 split.

I have identified the following cards to be on the chopping block:Windbrisk Heights will be cut, because I will hardly ever attack with more than just Alesha and whatever she reanimated. Especially because all token makers will be cut and it is a land that etb tapped. I will replace this card with a invocation Diabolic Intent I have ordered.

Coalition Relic,Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip,Skullclamp and Sadistic Hypnotist have not been performing lately. Yahenni, Undying Partisan also is not that great, but the deck is hungry for good sac outlets. I choose Yahenni over Hypnotist because Hypnotist's ability only allows the Anafenza + Redcap Combo. Because all others require instant speed interaction.

I might test out Animate Dead for Lili.

Cauldron of Souls is a spicy inclusion here.

Have you ever tested with a Disciple of Bolas, Greed, Phyrexian Arena, or a Vampiric Rites or more tutors (Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Diabolic Tutor, Dimir Machinations, Mastermind's Acquisition, Vampiric Tutor, Harvester of Souls, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Rune-Scarred Demon) to help with card draw when The Scorpion God isn't in play?

Happy brewing!

Nice list!

Consider replacing some tap lands and storage lands with Swamps. You have too many R sources and too few B ones. Maybe play an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and ditch some tap-lands for Swamps.

You should take Ormendahl, Profane Prince out of your creature list and put Westvale Abbey  Flip in your land list since that's how it enters play.

For tutoring, maybe test with any of these: Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Diabolic Intent, Diabolic Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition (from RIX), Demonic Tutor, and Vampiric Tutor.

For life-gain, maybe try a Disciple of Bolas (with card draw value) and a Whip of Erebos. Harvester of Souls can be good for card draw, as well, as can Greed.

Sheoldred, Whispering One, is value town.

Finally, maybe consider a combo like any damage spell (or, in this deck, say, a Mogis, God of Slaughter) + Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond.

Have fun!
