Hey, thanks for the suggestion. I had tried Extirpate in a previous build, but I found that it was kind of narrow in use. Now that we have silver bullets like Lost Legacy and Infinite Obliteration at just three mana, we can be a bit more flexible. Extirpate is a great card though.

Honestly, you really could get away with a budget build for the time being. The most expensive integral piece now is Runed Halo and thanks to UMA, it is already about $5 a piece. Swap Inquisition and Thoughtseize for some combination of Duress, Despise, and Divest to get that early game intel that is- list text here so important to this deck. A playset of Caves of Koilos and a bunch of basics would easily form your mana base. In the sideboard, Leyline of Sanctity can become Ivory Mask and Porphyry Nodes can join Sadistic Sacrament in becoming more spot removal such as Mortify, Anguished Unmaking and even Utter End. I wouldn't be surprised if you couldn't get it right at or even below $100. Good luck!

Hey, thanks for that! I am glad you like it.

SynergyBuild on how much impact do people ...

Blue-Black or Mono-Black, with some in Jeskai, Rakdos, Grixis, and Izzet

Really, blue has some reasonably good card draw, specifically Augur of Bolas, Mulldrifter, Preordain, Ponder, and interaction in the form of Counterspell and the occasional Deprive. Otherwise, they don't have a great set of wincons, sweepers, or removal, so they need another color to get those.

In comparison, black has Gurmag Angler, a great wincon, and the best removal in the forms of Evincar's Justice, Echoing Decay, Shrivel, Pestilence, Cuombajj Witches, Disfigure, Chainer's Edict, Oubliette, Doom Blade, they have lifegain, discard like Duress, Distress, Chittering Rats, card draw like Phyrexian Rager, Thorn of the Black Rose, Sign in Blood, and mono-colored payoffs like Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Tendrils of Corruption. There are even more great control cards from hate like Nihil Spellbomb, efficient spells like Cartouche of Ambition that just do a lot, land destruction like Choking Sands, more discard that is splashable like Addle, and the other following cards:

Diabolic Edict, Wrench Mind, Raven's Crime, Innocent Blood (for creatureless lists), Dead Weight, Crypt Incursion, Complete Disregard, Nausea, Reaping the Graves, Undying Evil, Read the Bones, Divest, Rancid Earth, Icequake, Dusk Legion Zealot, Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Tragic Slip, Crypt Rats, Stinkweed Imp

That isn't to say a good mix of both isn't the best option, it probably is. You lose the mono-black payoffs, but get Probe, Forbidden Alchemy, Soul Manipulation. Really though, black is more useful than blue.

KaladeshKat on Horrors from the Deep

Duress is a good start. Divest is basically duress for creatures, it is good for discarding a carny-T or something. Of the 2, duress is stronger. (it can hit artifacts, enchantments, planeswalkers, and inst./sorcercys.) You already have unmorred ego, which is great versus jesaki.

Negate is a great card for creaturless control, Spell Pierce is good versus other dimir decks to counter annoying "reveal your hand" stuff.

Might i ask what Drowned Secrets is doing here? It seems... um... out of place. Enhanced Surveillance seems better in the 2-drop, and you have no other mill cards.

I like the idea, but I feel like there are better discard options in Standard. Divest/Duress, Thought Erasure.

Verbatiam on All Mana Sliver Artifact V4.0

Slivers is my pet archtype so appologies if I go a little overboard with this comment

Overall pretty good, got most of the good ones. I'd cut Metallic Sliver and Sliver Construct as they dont actually add anything to your sliver stradedgy aside from mooching off of your other slivers. I'd replace them with Manaweft Sliver and Bonescythe Sliver I'm assuming their is budget concerns, otherwise Sliver Sliver Queen and Sliver Legion would be auto includes
To be honest, cut all of your instants, they either are innefficient or wont do what you want e.g. Lightning Bolt doesn't kill much in commander and Dash Hopes almost never counters a spell, and when it does it means you would have rathered a card that did damage. Some potential good cards in each caatagorie you have represented are:

Countermagic

-Swan Song

-Counterspell

-Out of Bounds

Removal

-Swords to Plowshares

-Crib Swap

-Beast Within

also one card thats really win more with slivers is Kindred Summons

I like your socereies more, some that I'd cut are Hive Stirrings because similarly to Metallic sliver they do actually contribute to slivers plans, Severed Strands is sorcery speed removal that loses you a sliver (which is something you really don't want to do in slivers), and Divest because single target hand hate just makes you enemies in commander and rarely hits anything thats worth that. Some good includes in this area are Kindred Dominance and Cultivate/Kodama's Reach
I combined these catagories because they speak to an overall subtheme you seem to have, both artifacts and the cat combo (Saheeli Rai and Felidar Guardian). Honestly I dont think there are enough artifacts to justify two artifact planeswalkers, and neither is really syenergistic with your deck I'd cut both and Guardian, if you want a Planeswalker I'd reccomend Xenagos, the Reveler as he both ramps and protects himself. If you want a two card combo I'd reccomend Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Pestermite has they're more useful outside of the combo.

On the topic of Artifacts they can be really useful in a budget 5 colour deck as they work with whatever colours you happend to have out. Most of your artifacts are good, I'd just cut Hedron Archive and Tamiyo's Journal, the former because you really need coloured mana and the latter because its a really slow tutor and not very good source of cards. I'd recommend adding Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, and Heartstone (Heartstone is especially good). If you find more space in the deck I'd also recommend signets for your major colours as they can convert 1 colour that you dont need to 2 that you do.

This section is really good, only card I dislike is Dictate of Karametra because it benefits your opponents as well in a deck where you don't really break parity on it (you opponents get as much benefit as you) and it costs double green. There are some really good enchantments you can run, highlights are Kindred Discovery, Unnatural Selection, and Training Grounds (again, decreasing the cost of your commanders abilities is insanly good)

All in all I really love the deck and it fills me with nostalga for my old Sliver deck (it was my first ever commander deck). Hope some of this helps and I'd be happy to talk about what I've said more (hope this isn't way to much)

Zmeiritorukuno126 on mono-black control

I guess you can push your graveyard plan by adding Stitcher's Supplier instead of Vicious Conquistador, also with this you can put your 2 Divest/Duress in sideboard and add 2 more The Eldest Reborn whitch give you more value, if you are not playing against mono red.

Maybe you should consider another mana sink if you are playing Cabal Stronghold like Josu Vess, Lich Knight though he is just an ok card if played from the grave.

Also i personally dont like this artifact plan, but it seems legit. I d rather play more Vraska's Contempt main deck than Settle the Score cause if Teferi ever touches the board with this deck you are certanly dead.

multimedia on Budget Dimir Aggro

3 weeks ago

Hey, Dimir are not the colors you want to play if you want to play budget aggro. You want red or white mostly likely mono-white because of low budget with lots of small creatures (one drops and two drops). Surveil is not a good ability for an aggro strategy it has more impact in the mid game (midrange) and the long game (control). Dimir colors are fine for control, opponent hand control, discard with Erasure/Campaign.

Consider The Eldest Reborn? It's a powerful budget card and good with discard from Erasure/Campaign/Divest/Duress because you can reanimate and steal an opponent's creature/Planeswalker. Opponent's discard can help to fuel Reborn. Because of the low budget you're very limited in the kind of powerful creatures you can play. To make up for this instead reanimate and steal your opponent's big creature/Planeswalker after it's put into your opponent's graveyard with your discard spells or removal. Price of Fame is a good budget unconditional creature removal spell with surveil.

I offer more advice. Would you like more advice?

Divest would help as a 1drop, Cast Down as 2 drop, Vraska's Contempt is of Course strongest but expensive(cost and cmc),... Thief of Sanity would help you too i think, i‘d replace The Notion Rain with thief. Lose spybug for Runaway Steam-Kin, add 2 Risk Factor 1 Lightning Strike 1 Vraska's Contempt, or just replace the pushes with 2 Cast Down 2 contempts,...
