Dimir Guildgate Discussion

I would change Festering Goblin to Festering Mummy since the effect is permanent with the mummy.Also instead of Dimir Guildgate I would put Dismal Backwater since also budget card and gives an extra life.

To start off, Dimir Guildgate is not standard legal. You have a high cmc for the land that you have. I would recommend adding some more land. Submerged Boneyard would be a good choice if you're wanting duel land. Choked Estuary is also an option. Fix that for a start and go from there.

I like the deck! You might consider adding Duskmantle Guildmage for an infinite combo with Mindcrank.

Also, Dismal Backwater does the exact same thing as Dimir Guildgate, except Dimir Guildgate does not get you that 1 life. Dismal Backwater is cheaper (although only by 3 cents) anyways.

Deathcult Rogue might work well with Trepanation Blade too.

I like it quite a bit, definitely gets a +1 from me!

Ok, Hello there again, buddy!

Let's talk lands:

  • The main point about your lands is that they must follow your gameplan structure. If you're playing a slow paced, more reactive deck, then check lands (e.g. Drowned Catacomb) can help.

  • If, otherwise, you're a playing a proactive deck and you intend on doing a lot of sorcery spells on your turn, then you might better go with some shock lands and fast lands (e.g. Watery Grave and Darkslick Shores, respectively).

  • Sooner or later, you're going to find yourself looking for some mana filtering, then it will be the time to get some Polluted Delta. This type of land, fetch as people call it, is the ultimate manabase fixing tool. Nearly every deck with two or more colors needs it.

  • Unless you use something with or on the mana cost, you don't really need Sunken Ruins. Even if you do, one copy would be enough.

  • In a real control build, Creeping Tar Pit is a very good win-con. It deals damage quite consistently.

  • No land that always enters the battlefield tapped (e.g. Dismal Backwater, Dimir Guildgate) is good.

Potentially Dimir Aqueduct or Dimir Guildgate to make your mana match more with your mana needs (swap out 2 Swamp for those, probably). Also, non land mana rocks can be important, such as Dimir Signet and Dimir Cluestone. I believe Griselbrand is banned in EDH if you play with people who care about that (I do sometimes), so maybe add another planeswalker, like Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver.

Might I suggest Tainted Isle or Drowned Catacomb in the places of Submerged Boneyard, and Dimir Guildgate as to let your lands be effective immanently?

Hey you can play it in modern! Other thing maybe some fun stuff like Trait Doctoring? Some Dimir Guildgate and etc to keep it budget?

DimirDenialDeck on Dimir Diciples of Phenax, Deception & Duplication

Thats a whole lot of useful advice, thanks! Made the following changes:

-Silumgar Monument + Burnished HartThe Monument wasnt terribly thematic, and I doubt I would find myself converting it into a dragon very often. I kicked myself when I saw this b/c I totally forgot about Burnished Hart.

-sphinx's tutalage +Bloodchief Ascension This is the the best news I could have asked for. This card singehandedly makes Phenax lethal. :D I did choose to keep Copy Enchantment so that I could Duplicate this and double the damage output.

-Dimir Guildgate +Myriad LandscapeWhile it damages my Dimir theme to not have this, the ability to tutor for a pair of lands is just too good to pass up.

-Quicksilver Gargantuan +Eater of the DeadLike Bloodchief Ascension (above), this guy is just too good for Phanax to not use. I traded an expensive Doppleganger for him.

-Braingeyser +Mystic Confluence-Mind Spring +Blue Sun's ZenithJust yes...

-Clone Legion +Liliana Vess...I didnt want to include a planeswalker, but she does all of the things that I need done. :/

I feel like You might have something where the Titans are concerned, but I already have several excellent Themed Kill-Shots among my Creatures; some of which are a bit subtle. ;)

The Sire of Stagnation Duplicates very well, and combined with Phenax, God of Deception they deliver 7 Mill/each and make Landfall both painful for my enemies and profotable for me. Consuming Aberration is an excellent target for Cloning, and can potentially Mill an opponent to death in a single shot in the Midgame using Phenax!

he fact Dopplegangers clone the creature being cloned means that I dont even need to keep the original around... :D

I am keeping Nighthowler as a way to grossly amplify the Power of a creature, and because I need a few Cheaper Creatures for early game. The joy of old Nighthowler is that He can also be Cloned... ;)

The Dimir Guildmage is there for Card Draw and Theme Mostly...

I didnt miss Duplicant - I do love that it is both Doppleganger and Removal. Ultimately I couldnt find a place for Him... :( I need Devotion off of my big creatures to fuel Phenax, and a 6 mana slot is a heafty cost when most of my deck is already at the 3-4 mana level.

Thanks for all of your help!DDD
