Dimir House Guard Discussion

Sunnydash on Pauper EDH Primer

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.

I understand what you mean Magnivore. It's probably the least straightforward deck I've ever designed. What you tutor for in any given situation is usually going to depend on what you already have, except for Command Beacon. And all of the deeper interactions and things like Dimir House Guard and Fleshwrither targets are non-obvious too.

It looks like saffronOlives deck for aggainst the odds. I like it.

I am still not convinced that blue is needed, even if zur gives an occasional win...

I would try to fit in Dimir House Guard to find a missing combo piece on t3

If you're planning to use the Triplets to cast your opponents' spells, rather than just shut them out for the turn, you could use some more five-color options. Darksteel Ingot, Cultivator's Caravan, the vivid lands, etc.

With all the artifacts, Fabricate?

I've found getting Unwinding Clock on the board to be a major advantage with all the mana rocks this runs, so Dimir House Guard and Clutch of the Undercity useful in tutoring it out. It's like Paradox Engine jr that draws a lot less hate.

With all the artifacts, some extra ways to protect them could be helpful. Consider Leonin Abunas, Hanna's Custody, and Padeem, Consul of Innovation as inexpensive ways to do this.

To make room for some of these, I'd consider taking out Athreos, God of Passage (not quite critical mass of creatures or recursion theme for him here), Graceful Adept (so your SEG buddies don't bolt her at the beginning of your end step when you have 12 cards in hand), Lullmage Mentor (not running enough counters or merfolk to get full value form him), Beguiler of Wills (situational, low creature count).

I love Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker in here, she needs more play.

Yeah, the Oil just wasnt worth it. It pretty much just forces your opponent to play his draws right away.. Pact is simply superior and you can just add tutors like Dimir House Guard or Diabolic Tutor to make more "copies" of it. Diabolic searches for the Offering too but DHG costs 3.

How has Veldalken orrery been testing? It seems like one of the weaker options atm

You also could include the Grave Titan + Nim Deathmantle combo her if you'd like

As for sac outlets I enjoy Evolutionary Leap personally, an I think Dimir House Guard would be very good here as a sac outlet, and tutor that Meren can recur.

Miren, the Moaning Well is a nice choice being a land, and Greater Good is just plain silly.

Dark Privilege gets an honorable mention for protecting Meren as well as being a sac outlet, and Perilous Forays turns everything into a quasi Sakura-Tribe Elder which is just great with Meren.

Finaly for some value you could consider Attrition or Helm of Possession or even Altar of Dementia as a win con and to mill more creature into your grave.

As far as cuts go, I might suggest Verdant Force, Mazerek, either of the Lillianas, especially of the veil in commander, Birds of Paradise,and Mulch as these are the cards that seem to be the weakest in this format and in your deck.

sonnet666 on Scorpion god combo (CEDH)

Th updates seem to be going well.

I just found out somewhere else that Nest of Scarabs also works as an outlet for infinite mana with The Scorpion God. You keep killing the 1/1's it makes. Might be worth including, since outside of the combo, the 1/1's are easy to kill and draw cards with.

Just curious, what is Dimir House Guard for? It's your only 4 mana spell. It's not like you're gonna transmute it...

Im like your deck. It has similar elements to mine, but is much more budget conscious. I like both Traitor's Roar and Serene Master, and may playtest both in my deck, just to see how they play. I have multiple deathtouch creatures that are parallel to what Serene Master does, so that is a cheap alternative that may work nicely, since Serene Master will likely stick around, and deathtouch creatures don't always stick around after a fight. I like it, and it may be a nice upgrade. I get a lot of mileage out of Delirium and Backlash, so Traitor's Roar may be another nice addition. I use a Wishboard with both Death Wish and Burning Wish, so it may go in the Wishboard instead of the maindeck.

As for suggestions, for budget tutors, check out Transmute cards such as Shred Memory, Dimir Machinations, and Dimir House Guard. They work great for cheap tutors that also have another use. If you haven't, check out my Queen Marchesa deck. It is pretty similar to yours.
