Enchant creature you control When enchanted creature dies, target player loses X life and you gain X life, where X is its power.
WicKid52 1) a 5/5 flyer for 3 mana is great and it's drawback doesn't matter too much because i want my creatures to die so if my opponent draws a kill spell, they probably don't know what to do and 2) it's high power/toughness is great for Murder Investigation and Dying Wish as well as Korozda Guildmage and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord
Mutavault makes for much more early game pack rat abuse, i see where your going with Pack Rat and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to cash out with Abhorrent Overlord and Gray Merchant of Asphodel prehaps Boon of Erebos in-case something dies, Boros Elite because he is useful early and mid game, Brimaz, King of Oreskos can be usefull too, but i see you are going light on white, Congregate may be usefull, Contaminated Ground Dark Favor Debt to the Deathless is also useful for cashing in you devotion, running a one of Abhorrent Overlord i would recomend Diabolic Tutor , because with nykthos, you will probably have enough mana when you summon it to summon overlord, thus ebnough devotion for his effect.Dying Wish will make them think twice about killing somthing, Whip of Erebos if they kill somthing, and its 2 devotion to black, Artificer's Hex ? prehaps a Lifebane Zombie Liturgy of Blood is a 2 drop kill spell if you have 5 mana, i feel Marshmist Titan is a must with all that devo, a Murder Investigation would be interesting, Ordeal of Heliod ? or you can just put a lot of Shadowborn Apostle Silence is allmost a 1 drop extra turn.
Sorry it took me so long to respond, haven't been on in a while. I agree with the reasons you gave for Fiendslayer Paladin over Brimaz, King of Oreskos . I always like when people have done their research for the deck they have made and have considered all the options. I see neither are in there now, what did you take out? I see two had to be Athreos, God of Passage which I completely agree, he is amazing and I can't wait to use him. Him being out at the same time that Blood Baron of Vizkopa , Obzedat, Ghost Council and Desecration Demon are out is practically not fair. I understand about the Whip of Erebos and Rakdos's Return helping out as win cons and you are a removal deck so you only really need one heavy hitter to get the job done. I agree with not using Warleader's Helix and Alms Beast as well, Warleader's Helix is a great 8 difference life change but is a little slow to simply rely on that as a removal and you probably gain enough life with the whip, or don't need it because your opponents board is clear. Alms Beast is too fragile of an investment, the opponent being able to chump block it and gain life over and over again is too big of a downside to consider. Not to say that he is a bad card though, he just has different uses, my friend used him in a crazy sacrifice deck with Sanguine Bond , Vizkopa Guildmage , and Dying Wish , he would just destroy it or sacrifice it with Cartel Aristocrat and do like 24 damage and gain 24 life, it wasn't that effective but it sure was hilarious. Using Read the Bones instead of Underworld Connections is a good call, underworld is just good in a devotion deck, bones is a stronger card. since you have used some of the journey into nyx cards you should check out Deicide and use it instead of Revoke Existence , the card is awesome, so much flavor, so overpowered, its like a more specific white Slaughter Games . Hell if enchantments start becoming a real problem in the block it might need to be maindecked, but I doubt it. Your welcome on all the comments, the deck is very cool, I am a selesyna man myself. I have some old decks on here but nothing I'm currently running.
I am having a hard time determining which of the following to use:
I see your point about Dissolve over Essence Scatter , but I think I'll move the latter to the sideboard, just in case I run into any creature heavy decks I can sub them back in. As much as I like Tome Scour I think Evanescent Intellect would work better, since it is reusable and works great with the Sirens. I had thought about putting those in their originally anyway. And I never thought about Dying Wish on Consuming Aberration for the kill shot, but that's a great Idea! I also like the idea of going full mill with this; if you have any other suggestions regarding a full mill stratagem they would be appreciated.
-3 Essence Scatter ; +1 Psychic Strike ; +2 Dissolve or Negate .You don't need that much creature prevention. If you go against non creature decks, you would be only limited to Psychic Strike for control which is not enough at all. With Dissolve , you then have 6 counters that can prevent any situation.
I love Dimir. Problem is it will not be tournament competitive as it is right now. Only great casual playable games. You either to go full Mill effect with a bomb or Control aggro. Either of these is this deck. I do like the concept your heading. Look up Dying Wish for a possible spot as well. Works great with Consuming Aberration and then use Away on it to kill them.
