Dimir Informant Discussion

I see you have a lot of surveil cards in here, do you really think cards like Barrier of Bones and Dimir Informant are worth it over dredge cards like Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug? If the idea is to dump cards in the graveyard, I have a feeling dredge is the better way to go.

TheGodofNight on Budget Dimir Aggro

Good Morning captainamerica,

I'm not sure I follow the core concept for this deck. So my apologies if you have already fielded this question, or another like it. You call this an aggro deck, however, it is more "reactive" (like a control deck) than "proactive" (like an aggro deck). I only say that because you are running a total of 7 creatures in the main board. I understand your budget constraints, and would like to recommend a budget Dimir Surveil Aggro list to you for consideration.

4 Thoughtbound Phantasm 11 Island 4 Nightveil Sprite 3 Dimir Informant 4 Dimir Spybug 8 Swamp 3 Discovery / Dispersal 4 Thought Erasure 4 Notion Rain 4 Drowned Catacomb instead you could run 4 Dimir Guildgate 3 Sinister Sabotage 3 Cast Down 2 Barrier of Bones 3 Disinformation Campaign

This list would be a little more aggro. I hope this helps.

Thanks! -TGON

Cool list. Have a specific budget? A few Dream Eater seem great in addition to Dazzling Lights/Dimir Informant. Have you considered any of the Jump-start cards to synergies with surveil?

You could have much more better deck $7. You want to take advantage from Surveil, but there only 13 (maybe 17) cards that allows you surveiling. Try to add more surveillance fo example Dimir Informant, Barrier of Bones, Nightveil Sprite or much more.

BioProfDude on Drowned Secrets - Mill Deck

Why not Millstone? It's in M19, so it's standard legal. Also, I would go with about 2 extra land and more counter spells. Two additional land to power cards like Mill Stone and Surge Mare. To make room, you can cut back a bit on creatures, then add cards like Essence Scatter and Negate.

I disagree that Tempest Djinn has no place in a mill deck-- you need another way to win. However, I don't think your deck needs more creatures. Rather, I think you can trim Wall of Mist and either (both?) Omenspeaker or Dimir Informant.

Oh, a less expensive (money cost, not mana cost) version of Mission Briefing is Flood of Recollection. It's sorcery speed instead of instant speed, but same mana cost and does the same thing. It also only costs pennies.

Cool deck idea! +1 from me!

WKM on Drowned Secrets - Mill Deck

I've been working on a similar deck so I do have a few ideas. First and foremost Tempest Djinn doesn't belong in a mill deck. As your mono-blue a couple Memorial to Genius can't hurt. Generally Negate and Essence Scatter I'd keep to the sideboard and replace it with a seasoning to taste of your favorite Cancel variant, Syncopate, prison type enchantments,and bounce spells. Speaking of bounce spells I'd look into ones that can target all nonland permanents such as Blink of an Eye first it's always nice to have that option and second this standard is going to have allot of enchantment destruction mainboard in the form of Assassin's Trophy. Mission Briefing is a card to look at setting up your next draw and reusing a spell in your graveyard. You may not be interested but there is a combo involving Drowned Secrets, Naru Meha, Master Wizard, and Release to the Wind. Even without the combo release could be worth looking at if you have a number of ETB effect such as Homarid Explorer or Omenspeaker & Dimir Informant which do decent wall impressions but also help set-up your draws which shouldn't be overlooked.

dBum0 - I'm actually trying out Blink of an Eye and it seems to be good. Trying to find the right mix of bounce spells.

David_H18 - Dimir Informant is less about putting pressure on the opponent and more about having an early decent blocker, and the surveil doesn't hurt. May test out a Nightveil Sprite over one of the Dimir Spybugs.

Very interesting deck! Just a thought, but I believe Darkblade Agent would put a lot more pressure on an opponent than Dimir Informant, unless you are just looking for repeatable surveil, in which case Nightveil Sprite would take much less effort, as attacking saves you the bounce card and mana. Really cool idea though, definitely gets an upvote here!
