Disciple of Deceit Discussion

So you want Altar of the Brood on the field with a Midnight Guard, you cast Retraction Helix on the Midnight Guard then endlessly bounce a Ornithopter or Memnite. The combo can be searched up through Disciple of Deceit also can use Twiddle and Tideforce Elemental to search multiple times. Using Skyline Cascade and the scry lands to control early game. Maybe getting out Ghostly Prison turn three to buy you some time.

is Haakon, Stromgald Scourge worth it for Nameless Inversion and Glen Elendra Liege? I don't think Glen Elendra Liege is worth it at all even with Haakon.

Not sure if you have enough support for the Zombie subtheme. I'd go one way or the other with it. My initial thought is you're not getting enough value from it and you should either add more or get rid of it entirely. Gisa and Geralf, Graveborn Muse, Possessed Skaab

Dralnu scares me. I can see a deck being built around him but as a part of the 99, I think he'd backfire more than help.

Dragonlord Silumgar, Oona, Queen of the Fae, and Sire of Stagnation all seem a bit too much good-stuff for my tastes.

Sheoldred, the Whispering One rarely works out for me. Either she dies/exiled quick or she gets stolen/copied and it turns bad for me.

Hedron Crab might be a touch too slow compared to your other mill effects

I really want to like Disciple of Deceit (especially with Phenax) but it's the same mana cost. If it were same mana cost or less, I'd be all about it.

Can you get enough value out of Reassembling Skeleton?

Think Twice seems like a slam dunk replacement for Forbidden Alchemy

I have a Phenax deck I'm still working on, I mostly go for cheap walls in addition to good creatures, but I'm sooo glad you reminded of me of Tree of Perdition. So perfect for this deck. Personally, I feel that mostly what Phenax strugges with is mana and really choosing what creatures have big enough butts vs. have desirable effects. Some creatures, like the Tree, give both. I do feel King Macar, the Gold-Cursed and Disciple of Deceit are two cards with effects worth using.

Firstly, inspired was designed with Phenax in mind, and it shows since he can get these guys to untap consistently. Being able to exile a creature every turn AND get some mana is godly. Being able to transmute every turn, if you desire, is also godly. I think Disciple of Deceit should be in here no matter what, it gives you so many options.

Re: zimsalabim

Thanks for the great feedback, I think I'm going to implement most of your changes. Smuggler's Copters are definitely going to be added if the price keeps dropping after the ban, which is fine for casual!

I initially had the same thoughts about King Macar, the Gold-Cursed as a legendary. But I decided he is an essential play, and the extras can also be cycled by Disciple of Deceit. So with the Copters too you are sorted!

Maybe I'll replace a set of vehicles for a set of spells. My thoughts on the high quantity were to ensure the creatures had something to tap into. I think I'll go in the middle and drop to 14, and lessen their mana costs. I'm tempted to drop a Pain Seer too as multiple on the go has felt like suicide, especially with all the high cost stuff.

I'll have a play.

Looks pretty good. Here are some other cars you might want to consider:

Tree of Perdition/Wall of Frost: high toughness

Eater of the Dead: Tap to mill 4 and if you hit a creature you get to repeat

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed

Crux of Fate/Nevinyrral's Disk Deck doesnt have any wraths and it's important to have a reset button in case one of your opponents gets out of hand. also your commander is indestructible so it will live through the wrath anyway.

Disciple of Deceit tap to mill and you can tutor

Awesome deck idea! I'd remove the Vampire Envoys and replace them with more Disciple of Deceit. If you still want the life gaining mechanic however, use Oreskos Sun Guide instead. Servant of Tymaret is same as nmk, so i'd run some.

Hey Snap157, I have muddle the mixture for Cryptolith Rite and I can use Disciple of Deceit to search for pretty much anything. Also enlightened tutor is not modern legal. Thank you for the upvote :)
