Diabolic Tutor Discussion

StopShot on Marchesa, Political Queen of Pillows

I would run Mastermind's Acquisition over Diabolic Tutor. You could easily run a sideboard of situational cards like Blasphemous Act, Innocent Blood, Abolish, Snuff Out, Hour of Revelation, Reanimate, Raze, Fragmentize, etc. which would give you more options at your disposal while still costing the same amount of mana.

leviseda yeah, some tutors would be helpful in this, I had considered maybe Sidisi, Undead Vizier for a repeatable tutor, but then I'd have to add some form of recursion or change my clone effects to hit creatures in graveyards. I'll probably add at least a Diabolic Tutor since I have so many extras of it laying around, and maybe try to cut a couple cards to bump it up to 3 tutors eventually.

I do like the big hand advantage cards, but they stray too far off focus for this particular build to really be as strong as they can be.

If you want a less competitive, more janky route, you can always just grab a random 5-color commander (I'd say Cromat would be the best as an infinite mana sink) and throw in all the tutors Diabolic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor to tutor for tutors, etc. along with all the 2-card combos in magic. Palinchron + Mirari's Wake and Deadeye Navigator. All the different possible Splinter Twin/Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combos, etc.

yrj77sports I can't believe I hadn't thought of Rogue's Passage before now, commander damage is definitely one of my bigger win conditions. Rise of the Dark Realms is a nice include for some extra win cons. I have a Diabolic Tutor in my collection already so I am not gonna add it to the list, and if I find that it works better than Night Dealings then I will switch them out. Thank you for the suggestions!

rogue's passage would be good. I assume your main priority is commander damage. You could add Verdurous Gearhulk, you also only have one creature that flies, which is going to be a huge problem. I'd take out a mana ramp or two and try to address that problem with Whirlwind. A tutor could be really nice, maybe Night Dealings or Diabolic Tutor. I'd also suggest something that could be a real game ender. Rise of the Dark Realms or Sepulchral Primordial are some things that could help.

The sideboard just looks like 15 cards that didn't fit into the 60 card main board.
But focusing on the Mainboard, I would suggest Gifted Aetherborn over Fourth Bridge Prowler. Accompany that with 4 copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Cabal Stronghold if you're on a budget. Bump in the Night is good if you are looking for a cheap and easy way to trigger Bloodchief Ascension. I would go with Sign in Blood over Night's Whisper since it can target your opponent and make them lose 2 life in the process. Or if you need gas you can target yourself. I don't know what format you plan on playing this in, but Demonic Tutor is banned/restricted in every format. I would go with Infernal Tutor or just swap it for those Bump in the Nights. Cut Diabolic Tutor. Ultimate Price is OK. I would add a 3rd Bloodchief Ascension in its place. +1 for me. Cool build.

Fecundity and Skullclamp would be good card advantage engines in this deck.

Doubling Season is good redundancy with your Parallel lives for tokens, puts extra spire counters on your Thallid creatures, and also allows you to go infinite with Slimefoot and Ashnod's Altar--plus it was just reprinted, so now's about as good a time as ever to pick up this EDH staple.

Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, and the certainly more budget-friendly Dark Petition and Diabolic Tutor help you find your key cards.

Woodland Cemetery and Llanowar Wastes are both relatively cheap dual lands at the moment (< $3) that could help you fix your mana.
