Dimir Guildgate Discussion
1 week ago
Thank you for taking the time to write down all those suggestions.
I did have a lot of Basic lands, I replaced eight of them with Dimir Guildgate, Temple of Deceit, Sunken Hollow, Smoldering Marsh, Temple of Malice, Crumbling Necropolis, Vivid Marsh and Barren Moor. I also cut Mycosynth Wellspring < Gem of Becoming and Manalith < Fellwar Stone which I think are superior.
I followed your advice and replaced a few removals and less good board wipes. Sudden Death < Doom Blade, Consuming Vapors < Dreadbore, Grasp of Darkness < Cemetery Recruitment, Extinguish All Hope < Victimize and In Garruk's Wake < Syphon Flesh.
Still tweaking a few things left and right, let me know what you think. Thanks !

It says in the title that this is a modern deck, and Extract from Darkness is not modern legal firstly. Secondly one of the advantages of a deck like this is to blank removal, although it makes the deck in general worse vs. Leyline of Sanctity but generally I would recommend running as many mill spells as possible while skimping on the creature base.
Cards I would recommend for this strategy (budget wise)Tome ScourHedron Crab is sick, but almost three dollars a popMind Funeral, again almost three dollars but card is a house, costs three mana for what Mind Grind would do for six mana. Breaking / Entering budget version of Glimpse the Unthinkable but still a very good rate as it does two mana for 8 instead of 2 for 7 with Mind Sculpt (I do recommend running both though)Thought Scour, its cheap, cantrips, mills just a little bit but goes very well with Sphinx's TutelageDream Twist is nice its one for three and allows you to flashback as well
For lands you can get some budget duals in the form of Dimir Guildgate, Jwar Isle Refuge, or Dismal Backwater. Also I'm not sure on the price but Drowned Catacomb was just reprinted in Ixalan so I might imagine it's not too pricey right now.

why Dimir Guildgate instead of Watery Grave? although you'd really be better off with Godless Shrine if you're only running 1 shockland. 20 lands isn't enough to reliably cast a 5 cmc spell. for what you're trying to do, you'd be better off adding green as well for Oran-Rief Survivalist and Harabaz Druid

If you're not using Daze, then Counterspell is going to be stronger. In that case, I'd go with Darkslick Shores or Underground River. Drowned Catacomb isn't bad, but you really don't want to spend your first 2 turns playing Dimir Guildgates because you got stuck with double Drowned Catacomb.

Hey sweet oloro deck now by potent do you mean more controlling? ie:Winter Orb + Tangle Wire Or more of the Omniscience + Laboratory Maniac Win more combo? But for your land base I think you're fine unless you wanna upgrade to your shock lands(Hallowed Fountain,Godless Shrine and Watery Grave) or the Guild Gates cycle(Azorius Guildgate,Orzhov Guildgate and Dimir Guildgate). Though for a good addition I would suggest Glacial Chasm for some "you cant touch me" fun.

If you're centreing your deck on the scarab god your going to want sone control and ways to find him. Supreme Will is great because it acts as both. I'd recommend something like Winds of Rebuke because it protects you from a threat as well as getting you cards in both graveyards for the scarab god to use. Anticipate and Naga Oracle could also help you find your scarab god, (but I would sideboard them).
I would suggest taking out Diregraf Captain and Dimir Guildgate because they aren't standard legal. If you want a casual deck that's fine but it's very easy to replace these with better cards like Liliana's Mastery and Fetid Pools.
Finally your deck won't end up being cheap. Because the scarab god and your black removal aren't very cheap cards. However if your looking for some good zombies I suggest Eternal of Harsh Truths instead of Proven Combatant. Since you will be eternalising with the scarab god rather than proven combatant's ability, something that starts as a zombie is quite good.
