Dimir Guildgate Discussion

What about playing more fetchlands (even though they're off-color) and adding Daze over Mana Leak?

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.

Replace Dimir Guildgate with Dismal Backwater. Same card, but DB gives you 1 life when it ETB.

Could put in Dismal Backwater instead of Dimir Guildgate if you have 40 cents in your pocket.

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.

Unicornsareevil on Scarab God Zombies

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.

MRDOOM3 I don't see anything about this being competitive, but you are right about the wheel effects. I'd add Winds of Change, too.

Also, in three colors, basic lands won't get there. Obviously the best lands would be too expensive, so the best budget options would be ones like Akoum Refuge, Sulfur Falls, and Dimir Guildgate. Stay away from Transguild Promenade and Rupture Spire, though. They're pretty bad.

Chromatic Lantern, City of Brass, and Mana Confluence (I know, it's a bit higher budget) are all good mana fixers as well.

Jace Beleren would be good, + with Nekusar and - without.

HawkRider on The God of Milling

So, you've got some pretty good cards here for a mill deck. It's rather solid. There are a couple of cards I can recommend though.

First, it may be nice to run a couple of token generators to get you more mill from Phenax, God of Deception's ability. Blue/Black isn't amazing for this, but one card that comes to mind is Docent of Perfection  Flip. There are probably better cards than this, but it's an example.

Another quite frankly hilarious card is Keening Stone. It's fantastic in mill decks. It quickly gets through the opponent's library late game. I don't think I really need to say much about it. Alternatively, (though this wouldn't work with your build, really), Leyline of the Void is fantastic and can cripple some decks. Plus, it partners up fantastically with Helm of Obedience.

If you don't decide to run Leyline of the Void, Diluvian Primordial can also be really good. Use their removal and tutors, and a 5/5 flier isn't a bad body.

If you want to use any Planeswalkers, Liliana Vess, Jace Beleren and Jace, Memory Adept (and maybe Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, but it's really just his emblem...) would work well. Lili fits in pretty much any Black deck, worst case scenario she's a Vampiric Tutor for five mana without costing you life.

Other than that... Altar of the Brood is better for token decks than anything, more kill spells would probably be helpful to you and you don't run much draw at all, really. Throw in a Blue Sun's Zenith instead of Whispering Madness, if nothing else. Although running both can be pretty good, thinking about it, you draw a bunch of cards and have everyone cycle through that many cards. Might be a nice strategy.

Also, you might want to replace Dimir Guildgate with Reliquary Tower and Fellwar Stone with Thought Vessel. Having no maximum hand size is really convenient.

If anything else comes to mind while I'm working on decks today, I'll let you know. I have my own mill deck on here (at least, I think it's still here...), if you want to have a look, though since the commander is different it might not be so useful to you.

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.
