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

Spelltwine out Diluvian Primordial in. Just a better card.

Krosan Grip out Deglamer in. Split second is nice but deglamer deals with indestructible and works with Isochron.

Crushing Vines out Redirect in. Something else to stick on Isochron.

Preordain out Brainstorm in. Isochron.

checkforloot While crafning Budget Damia Experiment I thought exactly in the same vain - it's cool to play with your opponents' decks! So I think you'll like my suggestions :)

  1. Abundance. Since you're using Green you really should use it's adavantages too :D Abundance is one of those cards that can provide with the whole ramp thing PLUS it prevents you from milling (which sometimes happens).

  2. Not sure about Lay of the Land. It seems to me that classical Cultivate, Urban Evolution, Farseek or Search for Tomorrow would be much more effective.

  3. Skullwinder is cheaper and more efficient on the battlefield than Eternal Witness plus it doesn't require double G in mana cost

  4. Extract from Darkness would be a great card to boost your Commander and get some cloning material

  5. I got the idea behind your deck but IMO it lacks removal a little bit. Simple Sultai Charm or Putrefy are great for this colors.

  6. Also think on Diluvian Primordial (and/or other Primordials), Palace Siege and Puppeteer Clique (this one is one of my favourite cards in the game)

I like the idea! I suggest Diluvian Primordial instead of Chancellor of the Spires. Less blue devotion, and trades situational mill for multiple insta/sorc. casts!

Hmm i didnt think of flickering everything, thats maybe interesting also since a lot of my weaker creatures have etb effects.At the moment i ordered Future Sight, Knowledge Pool and instead of Temporal Trespass i choose Temporal Mastery because i can also miracle it during an opponents turn with for instance Sensei's Divining Top. now i just need 3 cards to throw out of my deck. Biovisionary i think, maybe Diluvian Primordial (i dont know what to think of this card its always busted or it does nothing). but then i still need 1 more card gone

Hey ShreddyBass! Thank you for your feedback! Yes, sorry, I guess it was budget but I've done some upgrades since first posting the deck -- I'll make sure to change that or add budget alternatives in the description. I would recommend if you're playing against precons take out some of the removal and control in exchange for cheap draw spells. You could also do merfolk or clone (shapeshifter) tribal if that interests you! Many merfolk give evasion bonuses (which could help our commander be more effective) and clones sort of 'mimic' our opponents power level which always makes the game more fun.

Here is what I would do if I wanted to do clone tribal on a budget, for example:

Out:Back to Basics, All Is Dust, Bribery, Caged Sun, Cyclonic Rift, Memnarch, Reliquary Tower, Rhystic Study, Sapphire Medallion, Sculpting Steel, Thassa, God of the Sea, Vedalken Shackles, Wurmcoil Engine

In:Stunt Double, Clone, Vizier of Many Faces, Body Double, Saheeli's Artistry

Combined with some ETB effects: Crystal Shard - bounce your own creatures!, Diluvian Primordial, Mulldrifter, Solemn Simulacrum, Archaeomancer

And some goodstuffs:Capsize, Fact or Fiction, Streambed Aquitects, Tideshaper Mystic

Well, I think that your deck is good :)But I'll write smthing. I play Phenax for 2 years. My advices is to play with friends (so it's multi 40hp, ur opponents know ur deck and u know their). I really like playing with graveyards. So Diluvian Primordial is rly strong (u can cast Obliterate from one grave and indestructible from another :) ). Blue leyline is nice too. U can think about something like Bribery/Preators Grasp/Sadistic Sacrament, cos ur opponents can have in decks Ulamogs etc, u can take it and play or just exile it (or u can take Teferi's Protection and def ur self but with those spells u need few others lands with any/opponent mana). And, ofc if u know their decks well, u know what they have in their hands :DBoots with haste are very usefull, especially with Eater of the Dead (TOTALLY MUST HAVE). Look at New blue Gearhulk, Mindcrank and Black Ascension (it's combo, but those cards are good alone). Talent of the Telepath is funny card (u can play Army of the Damned in 4th turn :D) and i love it, but it's soooo rng.Altar of Dementia is great if u control opponent creature (u cast Goad all creatures with Blue Prmiordial from ur opponent grave, attack/mill with them and sacrifice all) or u can def with ur creature, tap for mill and sacrifice. Very, very strong with Consuming Aberration.Well, i dont like Altar of the Brood, pref Mesmeric Orb. Few strong cards: Dimir Doppelganger (Boardwipe. U can mill ur self, use his ability on Eater of the Death and its almost gg :) ). And i dont have Traumatize. Huge aggro-card in multi :/. And think about cards like Phyrexian arena/Thasa for draw :)Thats all, sorry for my sucking english ;)

TheCman07 on Phenax mill

Hey there! Just have a few suggestions on some cards you might want in the deck. Whether you add the or not is up to you, but in my opinion they're some pretty good fits for your deck. As far as extra mill goes, Mind Grind, Fraying Sanity, and Sphinx's Tutelage are some good options. Paradox Engine is a fun artifact to use which can net you some extra mill. I don't know how much you will want to attack with this deck, but Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is a solid card to mill your opponents with. I also noticed you aren't running a Dimir Signet, which is a solid mana rock for you to use. And since your opponents aren't going to do anything with the cards in their graveyards, why not steal them with cards like Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Sepulchral Primordial, Diluvian Primordial, Havengul Lich (or if budget isn't a problem Geth, Lord of the Vault) and Animate Dead? Rise of the Dark Realms is a fun way to close out games if you can play it. Hopefully this will be of help, but again, it's your choice whether to use my suggestions or not.
