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.)

If the combo goes infinite and somehow doesn't win (like maybe an opponent casts Pay No Heed or some such), Reliquary Tower & Elixir of Immortality would be useful after drawing lots of cards.

Cards that let you determine which card is on top of your deck, like Sensei's Divining Top or Dream Cache might be nice for you, so you can get the most value out of Yuriko's ability. There's some similar decks to this one that might give you some ideas on that strategy, like Ninjas and Eldrazis: What could go wrong???. Also, Dimir Machinations is both valuable for making sure an expensive card is on the top of your deck, and can be used instead to tutor any card with CMC=3, and you seem to have quite a lot of good cards like that.

Since you're using Conspiracy , you might also be interested in Arcane Adaptation and Xenograft .

Looks solid, only suggestion I can think of would be Dimir Machinations and its sole purpose would be to transmute to pull Shaman of the Pack more often.

What do you mean by "kitchen-table" is that another way to say causal?

maston07 You're welcomed and thanks for the compliments and upvote too!

Yes, I've always been trying to find a spot for Enlightened Tutor to no avail as the deck is already very tight. I only run 1 enchantment ( Penance which is just an enabler) so the tutor's main targets would be Proteus Staff or Isochron Scepter , both of which are my key wincons. At the moment, I've been relying on the other tutors (e.g. the various transmute spells like Muddle the Mixture , Dimir Machinations or Inventors' Fair or the good old Fabricate ) to fetch them in times of need.

What would you recommend be removed to make room for Enlightened Tutor ?

+1 Cause we simply love Yennett and the exhilaration or flipping over the top card to see what we can cast for free!

I run a home-brewed Creatureless Yennett Spellslinger deck. It is fairly consistent and threatens to win, if unanswered, usually by Turns 4 - 6.

Here're some more cards that allow you to manipulate the top of your library - Conch Horn , Dimir Machinations , Penance , Scroll Rack .

Liliana Vess is awesome in this deck as she allows us to tutor a card to the top of the library. Mystical Tutor , Personal Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are great tutors in this category too.

Leaving the link to my deck here so we can trade pointers. Feel free to leave any comments, suggestions or give an upvote on my deck page too. Cheers!

After your comments on my Tasigur, thought I'd drop by and check your other decks. I too run Lazav combo though at a much lower cmc.

Curious as to why not run Careful Study or alternative tutors Dimir Machinations , Shred Memory , or Dizzy Spell to pull combo pieces.
