Dimir House Guard Discussion

Phyrexian Tower is outside my budget, don't get me wrong would love it but....

Grab the Reins Nihil Spellbomb is a definite.

After looking at Gottsplitter deck, I think this is going to become Grixis. Dimir House Guard is gonna make a great addition to it.

Had to be brief before, please allow me to expand. I understand it's a more casual list. I understand you run Animar or Narset when you want to be cruel to others at the table, says it right there in your concise deck description. That's why I recommended Graft (It's not the most OP mechanic for Marchesa, but looks like it would synergize well). Just trying to give "feedback or ideas" as solicited. I really am sorry about the contextual typo, on my part it's unfortunate. As I said, I really like your setup. You have a well tuned and reliable deck list with several cards I'm looking to integrate into my playlists because I like what you're going that much. I plan to cite you if that's alright on my deck upgrades (Dimir House Guard, Fleshwrither and Jokulhaups) once incorporated into my Marchesa deck. Job well done.

I really like your set up. I may have to get myself a Dimir House Guard, Fleshwrither and Jokulhaups. I have a slightly different take on it: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/big-turns-engine/ ... Anywho, Living Death... That's a tough one. You may have to much life gain to ensure you keep getting your dethrone triggers. My knee-jerk response is Kokusho, the Evening Star. It contributes straight damage to all players and gains you life, sweet. However it doesn't have a lot to contribute to swinging... You have a good lineup for turning things sideways and loading up +1/+1 counters (Marton Stromgald, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Ogre Battledriver, and Urabrask the Hidden). Then creatures with those counters matter (Herald of Secret Streams and Oona's Blackguard). It's not that Kokusho isn't good in your lineup. Without Graft or something to help you throw silly amounts of counters on it without Dethrone, you need to swing and Kokusho doesn't do that for you. I can hear you already: "What about Unspeakable Symbol?" The three card combo is nice, but that's what I would do.

To add to all the suggestion I've given, here's another one:

Dimir House Guard: If you organise your deck into cmc you'll notice that you've got alot of very very powerful 4 drops. So Dimir House Guard enables you to tutor for those powerful cards. Once in the graveyard you can reanimate him (or send him back to your hand and repeat) and use him as a sacrifice outlet. For ages I was on the edge about adding him, but he's such a phenomenal value card, he just needs to be added.

I think Soul Separator's ability is far too narrow. With Hour of Eternity, you can get back dead Death Cultist, or Den Protector (whose evasive ability is slightly stronger as a 4/4).

Ok, this could be an idea: you can use Dimir House Guard to help fetch up your trees, but also another target for Hour of Eternity, as an evasive regenerating 4/4.

I think Hour of Eternity can give you a backup plan if the trees do get Extracted. It's true Soul Separator works better with the combo, but not with the rest of the deck.

Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice scale up with Atraxa out.

The 'transmute' tutors are great for budget builds. Dimir House Guard, Shred Memory, Brainspoil. The fact they can't be countered (without Stifle effect) comes into play more often than you'd think.

Relentless Assault for another combat.

Phyrexian Purge may drain you a bit, but targeted wipe is fantastic.

Yes, I would like to compare notes with anybody who plays this format (not many people in my area do). I have built the following decks so far:

Drooling Groodion: Voltron/control deck that uses some recursion elements to repeat effects such as Crypt Rats, Nantuko Vigilante, and Dimir House Guard. Bascially, you generate a lot of tokens with cards like Sporoloth Ancient and Sprout Swarm, which you then sacrifice into the commander's ability. Actually surprisingly strong, because it allows repeated removal (which is great in this format, since most wins are creature based) and boosts itself at the same time.

Thunderclap Wyvern: Beatdown/control. Plaxcaster Frogling: Beatdown/control. Gelectrode: Control/Combo. Mesa Enchantress: Beatdown/control. Cliffhaven Vampire: Lifedrain. Contraband Kingpin: Artifact control. Stromkirk Captain: Vampire tribal.Drogskol Captain: Spirit tribal. Unraveling Mummy: Zombie tribal.

Currently thinking about Ruthless Sniper as monoblack cycle commander.
