Looks good, but then again I wasn't expecting any less of you.

Now, I might be missing something, but there are a few cards I'm not sure about;

  • Radical Idea & Think Twice - these would be solid in a budget storm deck. But unless I'm missing something big, aren't there cantrips that would go better with your overall gameplan?

  • Coldsteel Heart - it's not a bad card, it's probably the best tapped rock. But in 2c, without a rock hoser that demands a critical mass of rocks (PE or Isochron), without obvious color-hungry plays on t4, idk if you need this one. Also it's 2 life with AdNaus, which is worse than 1 or 0.

  • Whispering Madness - is there an obvious use other than wheeling I'm missing? Bc 4 mana for a second copy of Windfall seems meh.

  • Trinket Mage , Dimir Infiltrator , Trophy Mage - these seem quite narrow in here. 3 mana for such limited tutors at sorcerly speed seems like much of a drawback.

Some suggestions;

It's your deck though. So ultimately you know what works or what doesn't work in here better than I do.

Hi there! I like the deck and see the strategy, but a bigger description is always nice to have. I also really like cards like Dimir Infiltrator because of transmute, which is a very powerful ability.

Forgot to add, there's quite a few Dimir unblockables/fear that are great candidates for all the Dimir cipher cards. Pop a Stolen Identity/Undercity Plague on Dimir Infiltrator and copy the hell out of Doom Whisperer while your opponent loses their hand and creatures, or a Whispering Madness on the Infiltrator while Notion Thief is out, everyone will hate you.

Not much surveil for a Dimir deck, given it's their signature. If you want to go more with the surveil theme I'd highly recommend Dimir Spybug, Thoughtbound Phantasm, and Nightveil Sprite. If you're open to Dimir cards from past Ravnica sets, there's a bunch of cool ones all with the transmute ability (Dimir's old signature ability) like Perplex and Dimir Infiltrator (not the best examples maybe), and others like Notion Thief, Psychic Drain. I could go on and on, Dimir was always my favorite.

A cool suggestion indeed. The only problem is that it will be very hard to catch an opponent off guard with it since it will be in plain sight in your graveyard. If they see you have a Phyrexian Obliterator in the bin, they simply won't attack into you. If you want to use it offensively, they won't block. For this reason, it can be seen as ": give Lazav unblockable". This is a little too expensive, especially if we compare that to our other evasion tools (Invisible Stalker, Dimir Infiltrator, Looter il-Kor, Key to the City). If you want an element of surprise, you need an instant-speed way of putting the Obliterator into the graveyard (Entomb, Key to the City), and this seems a little too clunky in terms of mana management for a one-time blow-out. My deck tries to be as mana-efficient as possible, but I can see the Obliterator included in other lists that have a bigger focus on cool combat tricks.

Lazav, the Multifarious.

I like using etb's from creatures then putting them back in my hand with ninjitsu like Puppeteer Clique and Draining Whelk. I needs a couple Stronghold Rats, glad your deck reminded me of those.

The card draw from this boss gets serious what with you also returning cards to your hand so i use transmute to bring out my Thought Vessel from the Dimir Infiltrator. If you put in a Library of Leng you can combo with a Putrid Imp to keep your highest casting cost card on top of your deck.

Reckless Imp is pretty good here, dash means they don't get taken out with a board wipe

I would definitely replace your Thought Erasures with another Dimir Infiltrator, And one more of each of your combo cards. Need 4x of each of your combo pieces. There's nothing more frustrating than waiting to draw or the right moment to tutor your winning piece.

It also beefs the Transmute mechanic. Allowing you to use Muddle the Mixture as a badly needed counter, instead of a tutor.

Delver of Secrets  Flip feels weak in this deck. It doesn't add to your archetype, and relies on revealing your instants and sorceries, for a 3/2 flyer that dies to Shock. Consider Thing in the Ice  Flip, to make the spells you cast controlling the tempo of the game work toward a boardwipe and alternate wincon. Remember, the less your opponent knows about your weapon, the better.

Runechanter's Pike and Vendilion Clique also feel a bit out of place. Clique is just an expensive Thoughtseize, and Pike doesn't win you games. I would suggest more hand hate: Thoughtseize, Duress, Despise

Or more digging: Augury Owl, Opt

Hope this helps!
