Good looking list. Few pauper staples that might fit in dredge: Dregscape Zombie, Werebear, Chainer's Edict, Sluiceway Scorpion.

Very cool build! Seems like a lot of fun when it goes off.

Have you considered 1-2 Hooting Mandrills and/or Gurmag Anglers as potential top-ends? They can drop turn 3-4 pretty consistently if your beetles/feeders are stalling out, especially if you were to swap out some of your Jungle Hollows for Evolving Wilds.

If you're not feeling the Delve, there are some other cool, synergistic cards that come to mind:

Love it as is, just thought I'd share... Happy brewing!

Some card that might be worth considering:

Tidehollow Sculler because it is a modern staple.

Stillmoon Cavalier even thought it's pretty pricey, it dodges a lot of modern removal.

Embalmer's Tools makes graveyard abilities more amusing.

Necromancer's Covenant, because it gives you zombies, pumps up all your zombies, and hates on graveyard, or cashes in on all the creatures you haven't embalmed.

Corpse Connoisseur can get creatures for you to embalm/eternalize/unearth.

Dregscape Zombie and Rotting Rats might also be good for their unearth abilities.

I don't know. I'm just brainstorming.

I saw the ruling from Eli, and I don't understand it. Mairsil has a restriction on the abilities she gets from Caged creatures, but it is not tied too the abilities as she is written. Copies of those abilities should not have those restrictions. I'll be brewing alternates if a rules update is published or Eli comes forward with more information than because I said so.

That said Balthor the Defiled and Dregscape Zombie are both good additions I'll work at getting in.

GoldenDiggle: Thanks for the suggestions! Caging Fatestitcher does technically give Mairsil Unearth , but only when Mairsil's on the battlefield (because his static ability only works on the field), so it doesn't really do anything. The reason Fatestitcher (and Dregscape Zombie and Narcomoeba) are in the deck is because after milling our whole library with a caged Mirror-Mad Phantasm, we get a free Narcomoeba, Fatestitcher is almost a free creature due to it untapping the land I used to unearth it, and then zombie is the next cheapest way to get a free creature out so that we have 3 creatures to flashback Dread Return. Then Dread Return hits Laboratory Maniac, and we flashback Deep Analysis/Faithless Looting or just cast a Cantrip.

I love Kuro as almost free removal. Forgot about him.

I was considering going the land destruction route, and I assume it's a viable strategy, but the decks I plan to play this against (the more competitive ones I play against) are Narset and Grenzo decks that generally don't care if they lose a land or 2 since they have pretty fast starts anyway with Lotus Petals and such. If you were to go land destruction in a Mairsil build, you have to remember Minion of Leshrac is just a better Demonic Hordes in this deck.

So, tell me if I got this right: After pretending to be Hermit Druid, you get Narcomoeba, unearth Fatestitcher for basically free with the untap clause, and... how do you get the third creature to flashback Dread Return? Is the idea that you would just have some other random creature onboard that you can sac to it? Then when Dread Return hits Laboratory Maniac you simply cast some random cantrip or Deep Analysis, no problem there. But am I missing some other Unearth creature or something? I would strongly suggest Dregscape Zombie as I think that is the cheapest way to get your 3rd creature.

Secondly, I'm pretty sure pretend to be Splinter Twin doesn't quite work. As Eli (the rules guy) said on twitter, Quicksilver doesn't let you use all the abilities infinitely for the rest of the turn, but rather creates a second copy of all those abilities that still have the once per turn clause. Basically all that means is that you'd have to pay per Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker activation, so you need infinite mana alongside that. Also, since you are already playing the Kiki-Conscripts combo, I would strongly suggest adding Balthor the Defiled, as you can Buried Alive, getting balthor, kiki, and conscripts, then cage balthor, activate him, reanimate your combo.

When pretending to be a rock, Mirage Mirror works as a backup Quicksilver Elemental (still needs to be used once per activation, so it'd go make mana --> untap --> use mirror targeting itself, which is mairsil, repeat).
