Dimir Machinations


Look at the top three cards of target player's library. Remove any number of those cards from the game, then put the rest back in any order.

Transmute (1)(Black)(Black) ((1)(Black)(Black), Discard this card: Search your library for a card with the same converted mana cost as this card, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Then shuffle your library. Play only as a sorcery.)

Sweet commander and idea.

I'd love to play this w/ non-budget tutors, too.

On a budget, Razaketh's Rite is another tutor that might be good here, as well as Dimir Machinations (for Unlife or Solemnity), Spoils of the Vault, and Insidious Dreams ($3 okay?).

Have fun - I dig this list a lot.

For a combo deck, I'd recommend to go all-in on the combo, so including cheap tutors like Shred Memory is helpful, because it tutors all of the combo pieces (the actual effect is negligible). Cabal Ritual is another card that helps ramp into your combo so you can play it sooner.

Also, card draw like Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood are very nice to help draw into combo pieces.

For cuts I'd recommend Murder and Diabolic Tutor for Cabal Ritual and Shred Memory. The former two are rather inefficient at what you want to do. Wight of Precinct Six and Dimir Machinations could also be cut for draw power (Wight is win-moar, because you're already milling out your opponent with this combo).

Depending on your budget, I'd recommend Cabal Coffers for more ramp and maybe Bitter Ordeal for more ways to mill out your opponent.

Hope this helps!

Hi murmer! Nice deck! Here's my $0.02!

First off, love the Paradox Haze idea! So I'll start with tutors to get in out asap!

Drift of Phantasms, Open the Armory, Mastermind's Acquisition, Dimir Machinations and Perplex. I know Zur can tutor for it, but sometimes he's not available and you'll really need it in your hand. Also they can grab other things like Necropotence and such.

Speaking of Perplex, I see you have no counterspells. Maybe that's on purpose, but Counterspell, Muddle the Mixture, and Swan Song might be good.

You lack instant speed interaction. I know Zur can tutor for removal but that can often be too slow. Anguished Unmaking, Mortify, Swords to Plowshares, Utter End could all be considered.

I really like Twilight Prophet here. Nice include!

Nice deck! Hope some of this helps!

Maybe a Sheoldred, the Whispering One for value along with more sacrifice enablers like Disciple of Bolas or Vampiric Rites to get value off of Whip and Reclamation?

Cauldron of Souls and Erratic Portal might also be good here to abuse ETB triggers. You have a lot of tutor options, too, outside of Rune-Scarred Demon like Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Mastermind's Acquisition, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Grim Tutor, Dimir Machinations, Dark Petition, and more fringy options like Spoils of the Vault.

Happy brewing!

Dimir Machinations could be an option if he got a slightly better mana base, (It's both objectively better in the context of the deck and much cheaper to pick up.) But I don't really think either is necessary. the deck is already kinda clunky. Adding a 3 mana card that doesn't effect the boardstate and uses up a turn doesn't seem like it'll make it better, (even though it will definately be more consistant.)

Thanks you for checking out the deck.

The Cadaver Imp + Deathrender + Gravedigger combo seems perfect for the sacrifice loop stuff the deck tries to accomplish. The fact that it can go infinite with Ashnod's Altar makes it into back hand jank win-con.

I had been looking into stepping up the tutor game of the deck, and your suggestions really seem like they could give the deck some increased consistency. Especially Dimir Machinations and Spoils of the Vault which weren't on my radar at all.

Gravedigger + Cadaver Imp + Deathrender might be fun with Altar of Dementia. You could run Mastermind's Acquisition, Dimir Machinations, Spoils of the Vault, and Dark Petition in addition to Diabolic Tutor to get your combo pieces.

Happy brewing!

Hi! Neat idea! I really like it! +1!

I've got some good ideas for ya:

Zur the Enchanter will tutor for Arcane Adaptation. You could probably make him the commander for a guaranteed shot at Adaptation every game. I suggest you do that.

Here's my suggestion for an add on to the combo: Intruder Alarm. Now your combo is Near-infinite. IIIIIIIIF you make the Turbine a creature so it untaps when you grab a creature. This can be done with Ensoul Artifact(can be grabbed by Zur!), March of the Machines, Sydri, Galvanic Genius, Karn, Silver Golem, Toymaker, Tezzeret the Seeker (useful otherwise too), Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Karn's Touch, Xenic Poltergeist... you get the point. All the creatures would be Adapted Myr so they still help with the game plan. This side combo will make your main combo more powerful, allowing you to get all or your creatures rather than just one. Also you will additionally get infinite mana if you have a free mana-dork out. Something to consider.

Now regardless if you go with the side combo, you'll need a robust tutor package for consistency. Zur and a few others I've mentioned help, but here's some more: Enlightened Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Razaketh's Rite, Demonic Collusion, Drift of Phantasms, Dimir Machinations, Mastermind's Acquisition, Brainspoil, Fabricate, and Beseech the Queen are all solid options.

Hope some of this helps! Let me know if you like or can't figure out the combo!
