Dimir House Guard Discussion

Rothon on Plunder the Graves 2.0

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.

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.

The Baneslayer Angel would be a great addition. That thing is huge!

I would probably only want to add one of the transmute tutors, and I'm thinking Dimir House Guard would fit the the theme of the deck the best. Thanks for the suggestions!

Good 'ol Baneslayer Angel would be a good addition.

The transmute tutors can be nice to grab specific pieces, and they can't be countered w/out a Stifle effect.

Brainspoil, Dimir House Guard, Shred Memory, Dimir Machinations

An Entomb, and Buried Alive would be helpful.

The transmute tutors are nice to grab specific pieces:

Dimir House Guard, Brainspoil, Shred Memory, and Dimir Machinations.

How about a Dimir House Guard for 1 more tutor to grab the Reservoir?
