Disciple of Deceit Discussion

CaptainGalvanic I personally don't like Necropolis Regent for the same reason I don't like Szadek, Lord of Secrets. It's just way too mana intensive for a conditional trigger upon combat damage which requires you to go through unblocked. Sure, an Invisible Stalker solves that problem, but it just costs too much mana to pull off since it involves switching from Stalker, to Szadek, to Sage, making this combo much slower than what I'm aiming to do in this deck. I don't think this sequencing is for me, but maybe it can work for you. My meta is semi-competitive so win-cons need to be faster and Sage combos do the opposite.
I've tried to refrain from equipment in this deck for more creature targets, so Heirloom Blade doesn't feel great in here especially since I don't have many tribal synergies as it is. It just doesn't seem consistent enough to use. Disciple of Deceit is an interesting suggestion, but it's less than ideal because I can only tutor for 2 CMC cards at best with it.

DangoDaikazoku You're probably right about Szadek being bad, but I still want another 2 card kill that doesn't involve Necrotic Ooze, since it's a common target for removal. I'll try using Necropolis Regent, since they are generally more cost effective, but I'll probably cut it later.
I notice you run a lot of tutor effects already, but some them are a hard to buy and non-repeatable, so might I suggest Heirloom Blade? If you have a sacrifice outlet you can, for example, use Avatar of Woe to fetch Phage the Untouchable. As a bonus, the blade works around effects that prevent or punish searching libraries, with the downside that your opponents see part of your deck. Disciple of Deceit also seems pretty good, since it's effect is cheap and repeatable, but is another card that requires a certain amount of build-around.

Disciple of Deceit seems like it would be good to include.

I've built some similar decks in the past here is my rundown of useful cards-
MVP Puresight Merrow
Backup plan Disciple of Deceit
I actually put up results in an FNM with a similar freed from the real combo deck- the big issue is that it just can't be played in a hand disruption meta. The deck loses to thoughtsieze.

Hey, always wanted to try a Phenax deck myself. Given his tap for mill ability seems like it would be your most consistent mill effect, why not try some cards that gain bonus from tapping like these cards with "inspired" ability: Arbiter of the Ideal, Daring Thief, Disciple of Deceit, King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Servant of Tymaret, Siren of the Silent Song, and Sphinx's Disciple would be some good ones to look into.
Any good walls would also work for your commanders ability and there are numerous merfolk that have mill abilities (pretty sure most are budget friendly).
Also things that untap your creatures are a godsend (get it?). Paradox Engine and Staff of Domination are the most powerful ones I can think of, but probably not budget friendly. Otherwise there's Magewright's Stone, Umbral Mantle, and Sword of the Paruns as some other options. Blue also has a ton of untap effects, too.
As for what to take out?....Well to be honest, I think I listed too many things. I guess just think of these things as ideas to ponder on. I would suggest removing Tetzimoc, Primal Death for King Macar, the Gold-Cursed though for your creature removal.

We have two new decks to discuss. Please take the time to look at both decks in the "Decks to Debate" section and give your feedback.
@truble and thank you for the deck!
