Dissenter's Deliverance Discussion
43 minutes ago
Hello everyone! Game looks like this:
My main phase: I resolved a Key to the City, immediately activating it's ability by tapping it and discarding a card. My opponent was upset he couldn't play Dissenter's Deliverance right away, stopping me from activating Key to the City's ability.
I told him it's because as the active player, I get priority after a stack resolves, and that the only way to prevent me from activating the ability is to counter Key to the City while it's on the stack.
Was I right or did I tell him rubbish? Thank you in advance!

coltmacmtg, I have tried Dissenter's Deliverance main board and used the cycling for card draws. It works okay, but I think there are better strategies. The current version I play takes some of the removal from the sideboard and moves Clear Shot and Ambuscade to the sideboard (though this is still experimenting, so it's not the build you see above).
Your suggestion is worth noting-- any time card draw can be reasonably included, it is beneficial to a deck! Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi, Meren of Clan Nel Toth seems like a good Commander for a Delirium strategy because you can get back creatures that go there. There's a Commander 2015 premade deck called "PLUNDER THE GRAVES" which uses her as a Commander. Go here to see the Plunder decklist, scroll down the page. The deck is very good, a great starting point for someone who's new to playing Commander. That's how I started playing Commander; I got the Commander 2014 "GUIDED BY NATURE" Elf premade deck and made upgrades to it. You could do the same by adding a Delirium strategy to Plunder.
Ishkanah, Grafwidow is at a very low price right now and it will get lower once it rotates out of Standard at the end of Sept. 2017. It's another Commander option and is the only Commander who has Delirium. If you're a fan of spiders, "shutter..." check it out. I don't necessarily think the Commander you use needs to have Delirium though since there's only one, haha who does. The Commander you choose should interact with your graveyard in some way; either putting cards in the grave or taking them out.
Go here for a narrowed down card search for a possible Commander who uses the graveyard.
Grapple with the Past is a good budget common option to help to fill the graveyard for Delirium and get back something in return, I recommend adding some.
You're on the right track with adding cycling cards, but consider adding more? Desert of the Indomitable and Desert of the Glorified are budget cycling lands and Dissenter's Deliverance is a budget cycling instant.
In Commander you can play any amount of basic lands as you want, but basic lands are the only card which can be in multiples in a deck. All other cards are 1 ofs. Commander decks use a total of 100 cards this includes your Commander. Go here to learn more about Commander.
Good luck with your deck.

Thank you man! I'll be considering your suggestions. You're right, Turn Aside is a nightmare for them, but it's tough to find free slots for it, especially after sideboard. Actually, I rely more on Kefnet the Mindful than on Gearhulks to close out the game, cause the God doesn't die to Unlicensed Disintegration and Dissenter's Deliverance, cards that are still around.The sphinx is good, but I really fear Hour of Devastation from a UR/Grixis Control and I can't afford to lose 7 mana and a turn against them in the late game. According to this, I'm running Commit to recycle my graveyard in the possibility of Kefnet being countered.Thank you again! :)

Hi there! Nice build! If you allow me, I'd like to leave here my 2 cents:
The white is splashed for Anointed Procession and Grind / Dust Aftermath. Ok, are good cards but a little slow - and the price is a tricky mana-base (alredy hard in the jund version). If I have to put a 4th color, would be blue, using Champion of Wits and Archfiend of Ifnir "combo" (are good cards itself, which Anointed Procession isnt as long it depends on tokens being created). And blue can provide nice SB cards, such counters.
Also 3 copies of Appetite for the Unnatural in main deck seems like a over-concern (maybe your local meta its infested with Heart of Kirans? If its true, Natural State are 1-mana (and deal with enchantment too) and Dissenter's Deliverance is 2-mana and can be cycled. And you have 3x Abrades in main. Should be enough, no?

ACDAMAN We'll see! There's not a whole lot that I'm gunning for at this point, but I am somewhat interested in Reason / Believe. There's no reason to believe Reason / Believe is any better than Tireless Tracker for the sideboard against control, but tracker DOES rotate in the fall and after that I think it's primo card selection and later advantage. I'm keeping an eye on split cards, since I think midrange loses a lot of blatant card advantage come rotation. I'm also looking at Vizier of the Menagerie again for rotation. Kefnet's Last Word might be a slightly better Confiscation Coup for this deck's SB if you run that, since energy is precious when it comes to protecting Bristling Hydra.

So the sideboard should primarily be used to hate on other matchups in your colours, Lost Legacy, Dusk / Dawn, Solemnity, and Crook of Condemnation (or something of the like) are great sideboard cards especially if you don't know your local meta. Lost Legacy beats New Perspectives and Aetherflux Reservoir combo decks. Dusk / Dawn is just a great sweeper to have, Solemnity beats energy, and Crook of Condemnation beats delirium. You may also want Dissenter's Deliverance to have some artifact hate, Cast Out or Grasp of Darkness in the side for some additional removal, and if budget isn't a concern Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Collective Brutality. If you still have flex slots in the side or main Yahenni, Undying Partisan can enable an instant win with Zulaport Cutthroat out.
In terms of numbers of copies I would do something like this for the side:
3x Lost Legacy
2x Dusk / Dawn
2x Cast Out
