Diluvian Primordial

Creature — Avatar


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

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?

Hi Crivaro, have you considered Duplicant, Phyrexian Ingester, or Noxious Gearhulk for removal? Sepulchral Primordial, Diluvian Primordial, and Molten Primordial also gain lots of value when copied and with Naban or Panharmonicon. Flamerush Rider can copy your other stuff for even more ETBs, and Worldgorger Dragon can flicker your entire board twice a turn (or as many times as you want with Ashnod's Altar).

TheRedGoat I built an Inalla deck focused on cards like Ogre Battledriver and Ambuscade Shaman. You can check out the link below.

Reflector Mage could be good to bounce things and prevent them from being recast for a turn. If you're running Peregrine Drake you may as well run Palinchron, and also Phantasmal Image or Deadeye Navigator for the infinite mana. Deadeye is of course amazing with a deck full of ETBs anyway. Eldrazi Displacer is another option.

Diluvian Primordial and Luminate Primordial are some pretty powerful creatures to blink that help the control theme.

Sunblast Angel should wipe out only your opponents' creatures since your creatures will be untapped after blinking. Scourge of Fleets can help take care of a lot of tokens and smaller creatures.

Knight of the White Orchid might be able to ramp you if there are some green decks with lots of land.

Kozilek doesn't work with blinking because you need to cast it for the card draw.

Nice deck, I like the combos you've set up. You might need Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir to stop your opponents from disrupting your combos. I should just point out that Deadeye Navigator flickering Cloud of Faeries doesn't trigger Circu.

Training Grounds is really helpful for your commander's ability cost.

Mindslicer and Myojin of Night's Reach are great to clear out opponents' hands first. Stronghold Rats and Oppression sustain the discard. Warped Devotion can clear out their hands after a mass bounce. Notion Thief could be useful to stay ahead on card draw, especially with wheel effects. Archfiend of Ifnir can clear out opponents' creatures if you're also discarding.

I would suggest cutting Dread since it is costly for the effect. Kumena's Awakening also doesn't seem worth it because you might not have 10 permanents. Havengul Lich and Rite of Replication also don't really contribute to the strategy. You could instead try Sepulchral Primordial and Diluvian Primordial to make use of opponents' discards.

You could try Maralen of the Mornsong with Nebuchadnezzar since you can remove the card after they tutor it.

If you want to tap into your opponents library in Simic colours, Bribery, Acquire and Thada Adel, Acquisitor can be good (depending on your opponents deck, obviously).

Tapping into their graveyard can be done with Diluvian Primordial, Chancellor of the Spires, Memory Plunder, Spelltwine or Spellweaver Volute. Unfortunately it's only to cast instants or sorceries, you really need black to get their creatures.
