Dimir Signet Discussion

kbrauner3005 on Lazav, the Multifarious

1 week ago

Before actually playing the deck I was very focused on setting up a nice graveyard for Lazav using a bunch of wheel effects and looters. I also had a lot of evasive creatures included to ensure that Lazav would connect.

After playing the deck I think it works a lot better to just play the cards out without focusing to much about the setup for Lazav. As a result I cut down to just 2 wheel effects (I think) and no looters unless they are evasive creatures. I only run evasive creatures that I would not mind playing without thinking about Lazav (I still think Invisible Stalker is to good to not be included though).

The creatures that can protect Lazav are so much better then I ever thought they would be. It comes up every single game (multiple times) and it can really be a blow out when you are left with your (sometimes lethal) commander after people put in an effort to remove it, did some collateral damage and payed a price themselves. Cavern Harpy dodges everything (besides Take Possession which I have never seen played) but have the drawback of resulting in Lazav gaining summoning sickness when I replay him. I had a game where I played Lazav, someone tried to remove him (sometimes by killing the board) I would turn Lazav into Cavern Harpy to dodge. Then replay Lazav, new removal, harpy again, repeat for like 4-5 turns. Summoning sickness is a real draw back from Cavern Harpy but is non the less a really strong protection piece. Erebos, God of the Dead (and Thassa, God of the Sea when I manage to get one) can dodge a lot of removal without the issue of summoning sickness.

I've also found that this deck can do some really fast kills fairly easy when a little lucky. Simply playing Lazav on turn 2, Buried Alive on turn 3 to get Vector Asp, Phyrexian Dreadnought (and maybe Dimir Infiltrator) sets up for a kill on turn 4 on players who simply cannot block, and turn 5 with any evasion creature in the mix.

In a very very lucky scenario imagine this. Turn 1: Sol Ring, Dimir Signet Turn 2: Lazav AND Buried Alive Turn 3: Kill with and evasive lazav as a Phyrexian Dreadnought with infect.

But in most games where we simply dont draw Buried Alive, just playing the deck more like a control deck is really fun and work well.

elgosu1337 on Aminatou blink!!!

1 week ago

Your deck looks pretty good already! You could try Minion Reflector to copy creatures after blinking them. Noxious Gearhulk and Phyrexian Ingester are also good for removal. Massacre Wurm should be great to wipe out smaller creatures, or even bigger creatures if you can blink it multiple times. Sunblast Angel could work well as a boardwipe and discourages attacking and tapping.

I think Infinite Reflection is a bit risky because any removal on the enchanted creature removes both cards.

Your deck is missing a Sol Ring. Azorius Signet, Dimir Signet, and Orzhov Signet are also very helpful for ramp.

enpc on Zur’s Paradox Theorem

I really like the concept of the deck, however I think that you have a lot of cards which don't add much value to the strategy.

For cards you could easily cut:

Iona, Shield of Emeria, Cloudshift, Essence Flux, Graceful Adept, Sen Triplets, Greed, Leyline of Anticipation, Near-Death Experience, Paradox Haze, Bond of Agony, Enduring Ideal, Sanguimancy, Temporal Extortion, Conjurer's Closet, Phyrexian Processor, Spellbook, Vedalken Orrery and Carrion Howler. You also have too many lands, you could easily go down to 36 and be fine.

As for cards I would add to the deck:

And if you're concerned about discarding to handsize, Reliquary Tower and Library of Leng between the two should be enough. But for the most part you don't really card, just sculpt your best 7 and go from there.

Hopefully this'll help streamline the deck.

usaDiabetic on Atraxa +1/+1 counters for critters

2 weeks ago

So took a quick look through your list....

I would cut stuff like Reflector Mage, Champion, Vizier, Paradox Engine, As Foretold, Brave the Sands, Ghostly Prison, Migratory Route, Spitting Image, Approach and stuff like that. They don't really fit what you want to do.

Put in Golgari Signet, Selesnya Signet, maybe Dimir Signet. Especially over the Chalice in a 4 color deck. Also Astral Cornucopia is great in Atraxa.

Stuff like Nature's Lore, Rampant Growth and Skyshroud Claim over the ramp you have in now.

You could also add in cards like Walking Ballista, Toothy, Imaginary Friend or Shalai, Voice of Plenty.

Either way you definitely need more land and some better ramp for 4/C and remember have fun, keep tuning, and never be afraid to cut cards you love. Cheers!

Overall it looks more streamlined. I have one lingering recommendation of -Wound Reflection +Talisman of Dominance or Dimir Signet. Reflection is a cool win more when it happens but really bad when it doesn't and as a 6 mana enchantment it won't be helping you recover from being behind at all. Either of those rocks I mentioned will speed up your game plan and smooth your colors making more keepable hands. Ideally I would say run all three signets and the dimir talisman

ERoss8 on From the ashes they will rise again

1 month ago

I’m noticing a lot of single target removal, which is fine. Personally, I prefer more global effects (like Fleshbag Marauder) that scale better in a multiplayer game. Maybe cut Walk the Plank and other sourcery-speed answers for this kind of effect. The same can be said about Cabal Therapy type effects. They’re pretty good in 1v1 matches to pick out stuff you’d otherwise have trouble dealing with, but in multiplayer they don’t do enough.

Black has a ton of great sweepers that seem like they would fit into the deck. Damnation is the best, but Life's Finale, Decree of Pain, and Deadly Tempest are all great effects to have that won’t cost you as much, and will clear the board more effectively than Flaying Tendrils and Yahenni's Expertise.

The Disentomb effects seem kinda counterintuitive to the reanimation plan. With this kind of deck, your trying to cheat something big out early, not get something back to hand where it will either stay for multiple turns or cost a ton of mana to get back.

Speaking of mana, a couple more ramp effects, like signets (Dimir Signet, Orzhov Signet, Azorius Signet) and talismans (Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Progress).

Hope this helps!

UUUUmage on Oloro

1 month ago

Oloro's so cool! I'd highly recommend the 2 mana signets, (Dimir Signet,Orzhov Signet, and Azorius Signet) to help fix and ramp, great to have quick mana for turn two. Helps get Oloro out and gives extra mana to dump into his card draw feature.

Kaleo42 on Drawing Your Last Breath

So I notice your group's ban list is focused on the "feel bad" cards like game warping fatties and land destruction. This means your land is relatively safe and a deck focused on drawing cards can easily function on 34 or 35. I would build it with 33 but I see you want to get to a few select top end cards. I would cut these lands in order: Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, Rakdos Carnarium, Izzet Boilerworks, Crosis's Catacombs, and Dimir Aqueduct.

High cost cards can be fun but it's important to balance their impact with the fact that drawing too many of them can stunt your game play. Cruel Ultimatum immediately jumps out at me as a fun card but ultimately lacking in the impact. Targeting a single player and being super heavy both in cmc and color requirements makes the risk to reward ratio not in your favor.

Jaya and Nicol Bolas both fall in a similar camp of cost outweighing their impact. Of the two a greater argument can be made for Jaya pumping out spells and drawing cards but that triple red is rough. Keep in mind the big goal here is to force draw absurd amounts of cards, each high cost and color intense spell you hit is a speed bump in that card drawing engine.

Dominus of Fealty and Thraximundar are a pretty high cost to invest into things that are off strategy. Nezahal, Primal Tide is in a similar boat but if your play group creates a need for a 7/7 uncounterable then it’s a fine inclusion. Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is strategy adjacent but the slot can probably be put to better use. I also don’t like Guiltfeeder but I recognize that is likely do to my meta shaping my opinion of it.

Cards I would look at adding

Toxic Deluge over Flaying Tendrils for similar slot but higher power level.

Time Spiral over Time Reversal since it's lower cmc and much stronger.

Vampiric Tutor and maybe Imperial Seal would help smooth out the deck's performance.

Swiftfoot Boots are better than General's Kabuto.

Anvil of Bogardan I am surprised isn't already in here.

I would run Izzet Guildmage over Nivix Guildmage if you want the dual casting. I don't think you need the looting at that mana cost.

Waste Not does beautiful things with all the wheels on this bus. In the same vein Liliana's Caress and Megrim would be fun.

Memory Jar is another great wheel.

Psychosis Crawler is too on strategy not to include.

Sunder is great in decks like this but your group would probably ban it in a heartbeat based on your current ban list.

Reverberate, Twincast, and Dualcaster Mage can act as counterspells and double your wheels among other things.

You’re already fairly deep in artifacts so a mana rock ramp package would massively increase speed and consistency. Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, (maybe) Mana Vault, Rakdos Signet, Dimir Signet, Izzet Signet, Thought Vessel, Chrome Mox, and Mox Diamond.

Jace, the Mindsculptor, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, and if I am reading your meta correctly Ob Nixilis Reignited would be good walkers to include.

Vandalblast if your playgroup uses a healthy amount of artifact ramp.

Spell Pierce, Flusterstorm, Mana Drain, and Swan Song are the only counters I would recommend because I can see that’s not the direction you want to go too deep into.

Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual are great at getting your pacing off on the right foot and Past in Flames could really tie it all together.
