Diabolic Tutor Discussion

PeeBee on Hedron Alignment + Secret Salvage

5 hours ago

I think you need to have x2 Yahenni's Expertise in the mainboard to clear small creatures and tokens, it will also give you a way to play a Hedron Archive, Catalog or Oath of Jace for free. I would remove x1 Submerged Boneyard and x1 Sinister Concoction.

I would then go down x1 Secret Salvage and up x1 Diabolic Tutor as I would rather tutor or find the salvage out of the deck, and the second copy is always useless.

Finally I would swap Flaying Tendrils in the sideboard for the last x2 Yahenni's Expertise.

Diabolic Tutor? But yeah Merchant's Dockhand does let me dig through cards in the longer game, but this deck wants to be reactive, in contrary to the 0-CMC build. You need to have Fatal Push and Metallic Rebuke in your hand while you go online slowly with your artifacts (that actually does something, not like Cathar's Shield), and to do that you need to sculpt your hand. You dumb your hand and they Murder your Herald of Anguish. Now what? Cross your fingers and hope to draw into gas? I'd rather do the opposite :)

I like the servo build more than 0-cmc because they have a board pressence :) If you are running more planeswalkers, definitely play Heart of Kiran.

Thank you very much for the upvote! Top #3 today, wow :)!

PookandPie on Chaos in the Maelstrom

Warp World is generally best used by token decks, not Storm decks, right? You could probably remove it for some kind of tutor (like Fabricate to find Aetherflux Resevoir or Diabolic Tutor to find anything) to smooth your deck out a bit- no need to reshuffle and try again if you got what you needed on the first try, right? I get it, it's chaotic, it's kind of fun, but the most fun would be actually moving on to your win.

There are some better wheels than what you're running, too. Winds of Change is better than Runehorn Hellkite, IMO (it's 1/6th the cost even if it's shuffle/draw that many). No Magus of the Wheel? Way less cost-intensive than Dragon Mage.

SigmaLamda747 on Zurgo Voltron

Voltron is literally about building "Voltron." You'll want to add all the Swords and drop some of the other equipment. Add in Mother of Runes and more things to protect Zurgo when it's not your turn. Creatures and tutors to fetch equipment are critical. Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Steelshaper's Gift, Enlightened Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor all belong in this deck.

That's what I'd add. I've also got a Voltron Zurgo Deck that I'm making right now (private until it's first incarnation is finished).

I could use on advise on what to cut in order to add these cards.

Disallow: I don't know what to change to make room for this, I feel like a creature will have to go and there's a couple I could stand to drop without much change to the deck. Or do I just go straight up switch on Counterspell?

Increasing Ambition: I'm not sure a straight up trade for Diabolic Tutor is the best idea, having both is the best idea IMO. EDIT: Added in place of Identity Thief.

Future Sight: Initially I thought I'd just straight up switch this in for Deep Analysis, but I'm not sure if that's the best option. EDIT: Did it anyways.

And then, I'm looking at adding these 3 colorless lands but I don't want them to mana-screw me early on because my mana situation on this deck is about as slimmed down as it can get. Do you think any are worth adding?

Mirrorpool, Arcane Lighthouse, Rogue's Passage

And finally, these 4 cards. Worth it in this deck or only of fringe benefit?

Black Sun's Zenith, Languish, Darksteel Ingot, Druidic Satchel.

Use something like Diabolic Tutor to get the cards you want. Sram, Senior Edificer and Sram's Expertise would also be fun to play.

Building Kambal myself - I like a lot of what I see here. Things like Divinity of Pride and Caves of Koilos go overlooked all too often in my playgroup - way to do your research!

That being said, there are some staples missing that I question. Spot removal like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Vindicate, and Anguished Unmaking should at the very least be considered. In addition, board wipes like Wrath of God and Austere Command deserve a look. I personally run 9 board wipes in my own Kambal build, and I've never been sad to see one.

Finally, tutors. White and Black have some of the best tutors in the game - use them to your advantage to speed up your deck and get answers faster. Enlightened Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, and Demonic Tutor are all fantastic choices.

Oh, and if you're running Bloodchief Ascension, you should be running Mindcrank - the potential to go infinite is right there.

Thanks for reading, and best of luck!

Deos on Standard Hedrons

JackTheWaterBear, I was definitely considering adding Secret Salvage to the deck, but I'm worried it will be somewhat slow. It tutors a Hedron Alignment into exile, but so does Lost Legacy for less mana. The search is good, but I have Diabolic Tutor to do that. It might make a good replacement for Behold the Beyond, but again I am not entirely sure about it.
