Diluvian Primordial

Creature — Avatar

Flying

When Diluvian Primordial enters the battlefield, for each opponent, you may cast up to one target instant or sorcery card from that player's graveyard without paying its mana cost. If a card cast this way would be put into a graveyard this turn, exile it instead.

Diluvian Primordial Discussion

Ahhhhhh too many good cards, Im running out of room in the deck for them all.

I think Liliana, Death's Majesty is still the better Liliana for me.

But I see what you was saying about how good Living Death can be, especially with cards like Diluvian Primordial.

I really want to include it but I have no idea what to remove for this one, maybe I should remove the Tome Scour?

Cyclonic Rift is the blue board-wipe.

You also have Oblivion Stone as an option.

Ever thought of Nezahal, Primal Tide picking up a Worldslayer between its teeth?

And if you run Diluvian Primordial you'll have access to any board-wipes that may have found their way to your opponents' graveyards.

While Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip would be good as the commander, I feel like the deck is more built around Nicol Bolas. Reforge the Soul is also a good wheel affect.

I don't actually like Myojin of Night's Reach, it's expensive, and only does the discard once. Hypnotic Specter also seems like a strictly worse Dreamstealer.

Mass bounce isn't really something I'm interested in.

Blatant Thievery was in here, but was cut. Might come back in though. Diluvian Primordial was also in here, but I felt it could be replaced with some better cards.

I feel Grave Betrayal is on about the same level as Prince of Thralls. While they can get it back it comes at a cost, one that they can't pay forever. Although, Grave Betrayal isn't as weak to removal. Thrilling Encore is good, it's in another of the decks I've built. Totally forgot about it when it came to this deck though.

You underestimate Dragon Tempest, I don't need more dragons/fliers. The way the wording works makes it so Nicol Bolas does the ETB damage, making someone discard their hand. Bolas then also has the benefits of haste.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Have you considered Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip as the commander? You could probably cast him multiple times in a game compared to the original Bolas, which means multiple discards for each opponent. Reforge the Soul could be another good wheel spell for that purpose.

You probably need more ramp for the deck. Coalition Relic gives more mana than Commander's Sphere, and Thran Dynamo also produces a lot of mana for its cost.

Myojin of Night's Reach discards all your opponents' cards if you have 8 mana. Hypnotic Specter is a good early play to start the discard.

Not sure if you would be interested in Warped Devotion and more mass bounce spells like River's Rebuke.

Blatant Thievery is one of the best blue sorceries. Also a big fan of Sepulchral Primordial and Diluvian Primordial to steal the creatures and spells discarded.

Grave Betrayal could be better than Prince of Thralls since opponents can't pay life to bypass it. Thrilling Encore can act as a second Rise of the Dark Realms.

Phyrexian Arena could be good for more card draw.

Don't think you have enough fliers or Dragons to benefit from Dragon Tempest.

I would cut Chancellor of the Spires. If you keep it in your opening hand to use its ability, you may end up enabling Muldrotha, Meren, and other recursion players, and you'd be stuck with a seven-drop in your opening hand. If you draw it later in the game, you'd have a diluted Diluvian Primordial.

Goliath Sphinx is too vanilla.

You may also want to look into some card draw, like Sphinx's Revelation and Rhystic Study.

Diluvian Primordial might suit as your solo creature. You could also consider Sundial of the Infinite to avoid combat damage with your commander.

Pretty Cool Deck! I'm guessing you've already discussed with your playgroup playing a non-legendary commander so I'll move right into suggestions.

First off, Phenax, God of Deception and your commander? Woof. (It could even be a sub-in commander if someone gives you a hard time about having a non-legendary commander.) Additionally, Szadek, Lord of Secrets can be a potent swinger, but may be a little two high CMC to be competitive.

How about ways to get bonus value off of your big-buster spells like Traumatize? Primal Amulet  Flip Flipped, Mirari both get you cheap, repeatable copies of spells... You're currently running a LOT of creatures and a few Instants/Sorceries, so maybe not great to slot yet, but I feel like you'll be moving away from hard-line rogues when you're not hitting as well as you'd want. Not saying I don't like the tribal, I just think you want more interaction.

Since you have a lot of permanents, Altar of the Brood is an Auto-include, IMO. it starts doing work from turn one and adds mill to your land-drops. Also, since you're tribal rogues, Notorious Throng is the #1 best Prowl card out there. Also works nicely with Altar of the Brood and your commander.

I like to test Strionic Resonator in any deck I run with a commander w/ triggered abilities. For {2}, you get a second instance of mill. It may not be good enough for that reason, but it's a versatile enabler for ETB triggers, too, like Gonti, Lord of Luxury.

Let's get more value from your opponent's graveyards. Both Diluvian Primordial and Sepulchral Primordial get you value from EACH of your opponents' graveyards which make them great cards in this multiplayer free-for-all format. Wrexial, the Risen Deep also nets you free casts which trigger your commander. Spelltwine is cool because you get one of theirs and one of yours.

Finally, your commander is Lethal and FAST. You're going to want to protect that. Whispersilk Cloak at the MINIMUM needs to be in because it gives you evasion, too. In addition, Swiftfoot Boots and/or Lightning Greaves to make sure it sticks around and can swing for that juicy 21+ commander. Other Evasion-type cards: Aqueous Form, Artful Dodge, etc. may get you through the chump blockers, too.

I hope that helps!

Memory Erosion seems really out of place with no other mill tech in the list; plus it would actually help Meren or Jarad, so you probably don't want that.

Diluvian Primordial instead of the Chancellor?
