Diabolic Tutor Discussion

lionfish41 Thanks for the comment! I tried to comment on your deck yesterday but for some reason I kept getting an error report.

UlmBurger Thanks for the critique. I've considered adding a stax element to this deck, maybe with Smokestack. I intend to playtest the deck a little (hopefuuly ill get my cards next week) and see if i've got it running smooth enough for a smokestack. As for tutors, unfortunately Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor are beyond my budget and Diabolic Tutor seems slow. I'd welcome any other suggestions or card recommendations. Similarly with the lands, the fetchlands are a over my budget at this point. I would consider getting Overgrown Tomb.

Some of those might not be Modern legal. Also, maybe put in something like Phylactery Lich and Lightning Greaves. That would be tough to deal with. Maybe some tutors like Diabolic Tutor or Beseech the Queen would help get your combo.

Thanks for checking it out! I honestly think my it might be unfun to use the Diabolic Tutor with Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond in my playgroup(which is just two other friends). It is an insane combo for sure though! Same with Felidar Sovereign I eventually took him out.

That being said your recommendations are great, I have a list for new cards to get now. Also Archangel of Thune is never at my LGS I'll have to buy offline. I love the recursive sac for mass life gain, more efficient use of my mana. I need a Dictate of Erebos for sure!

I like the strategy here a lot!

I wonder if Damia, Sage of Stone might be a helpful commander since you do so much top-deck manipulation.

I also think Arbiter of the Ideal is a house in this deck. Have you tested with fewer, more targeted non-permanent spells to take full advantage of that card? Maybe run a few creatures like Kiora's Follower and the Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal combo?

You could tutor up the Arbiter with lots of BG cards (Dark Petition, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Worldly Tutor, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Rune-Scarred Demon, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, etc.).

A Kiora, Master of the Depths or Garruk, Caller of Beasts might also help you dig (and maybe a Dig Through Time?).

I worry that the number of instants and sorceries you run might interfere with Arbiter's value.

Anyhow - sweet strategy and happy brewing!

Mastermind's Acquisition is an awkward card to me. It certainly is better than Diabolic Tutor, but that was never really an amazing card to begin with. It does allow you to get creative with your sideboard, as im sure you know that cards you own outside of the game refers to your sideboard and not just any old card you happen to own, but it is essentially a turn you are using to do...well nothing on that turn, but setup your next turn. its a card you need to have room to play, and against a competent opponent you probably never will get the chance.

Wow! Fascinating idea for a deck! Don't know your budget at all but here we go!

My suggestions: Neverending Torment is not a good win condition. I prevents only you from casting spells, meaning the other players will tutor up cards and beat you. I personally don't think you'll ever win a game this way.

Here's what I think you should do. Take it how you will.

Cut Neverending Torment, Kiku, Night's Flower, and a bunch of swamps.

Add: indicates commander staple, because I know you're new :)

Add a ton of protection for Maralen. Swiftfoot Boots, Mask of Avacyn, Lightning Greaves, Whispersilk Cloak

This will protect the most important part of the deck, and the linchpin of your strategy.

Then, the #1 suggestion I have for you and the one I want to to try even if you ignore everything else: Ob Nixilis, Unshackled.

Do you see it?? That's 13 life each turn. That's a four turn clock. With enough protection no one will be able to stop you.

Want to double down? Add Strionic Resonator*. That copies Ob's ability, now you're hitting them for 23.

Triple down? Wound Reflection. Kill someone, and watch everyone else tremble in fear.

How do I get these combo pieces, you ask? Easy.


BOOOOOOOOOOM. Necropotence has a huge down side that's MITIGATED BY YOUR COMMANDER. Think about it. Draw all your cards at the cost of you're life, your opponents are stuck with 3-4 and you have 20. You win by sheer card advantage.

Ad Nauseam is another way to get around the inability to draw. Very very strong.

How else do we get stuff we need? Tutors.

Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Revelation, Beseech the Queen, Increasing Ambition, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Collusion, all of this is on top of tutoring with our commander.

Now what about all the cards in their hands and their tutors? Discard.

Teferi's Puzzle Box or Bottomless Pit may be your best options. Or mass discard/wheel cards like Dark Deal with a flash enabler; Vedalken Orrery.

After that, we punish them further for having so few cards.

Shrieking Affliction this with ob is 16 damage per turn, that's a three turn clock!

Tree of Perdition will out right kill someone with Ob and Maralen out. Take out the strongest player and pick off the rest!

The Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond could also work here. Since you don't have any lifegain, Exquisite Blood would be the one to pick up if you don't like the combo.

I know this is a lot to take in... honestly I hope you don't use it all because now I'm gonna make a deck with her...

Sweet commander!

Since you have Phenax, perhaps test with Consuming Aberration, and since you have a lot of zombies, perhaps test with Rooftop Storm and Undead Alchemist? Rooftop Storm might also give you an infinite mill combo with Gravecrawler and Altar of Dementia.

Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Rune-Scarred Demon, and Sidisi, Undead Vizier all offer ways to tutor for your combo, as do Dark Petition, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, and Vampiric Tutor.

Liliana, the Last Hope seems like a good walker here. Maybe a Kindred Discovery or a Slate of Ancestry naming Zombies would be helpful for card draw, too.

Happy brewing!
