Evil Twin Discussion

Beebles on Silumgar's Vile Offering

Hey K1ngMars. Thanks for stopping by. Here is an answer to your question:

  • Some of the cards you mention are already in the deck ;). Clever Impersonator and Evil Twin.
  • The other cards I did consider but are not on my maybe list because I think the ones I did include are better. And I don’t have more spots for copy effects atm. If I wanted to add more I’d probably go for Stunt Double first.

I will have a look at the deck you listed for inspiration soon.

Thanks again for your comment!

Hey! I see you like stealing actions.

Why don't you consider adding Dimir Doppelganger, Clone, Clever Impersonator, Evil Twin and Body Double?

By the way, since Dimir generally likes also to put stuff in the graveyards, feel free to take a look here, you might find something useful: "Library.exe has stopped working".

Here's a list of what I could find.

I believe Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker should be in here.

Some stuff to consider: Sol Ring is an auto include in most EDH decks, and Gilded Lotus is also very strong. Massacre Wurm is a strong creature in its own right, but can be a win con with Ixidron.

You could drop 1 - 2 lands, Evil Twin, Slave of Bolas, and in general I find Lim-Dul the Necromancer too Mana intensive when a simple Reanimate will do.

+1 from me. I have a superfriends control Bolas deck if you want to check it out: E. V. I. L..

Don't be scared off by the price tag, a lot of the cards in there except for the lands and some walkers are pretty affordable.

Thanks Demo102 I've always liked Duplicant, actually surprising I didn't put it in the list to start with. I haven't taken notice of Banewhip Punisher before but that's a really good suggestion!! for reusable spot removal seems like it deserves a slot. Not sure I can find space for the other cards though, the summoning sickness with Evil Twin puts me off as I prefer immediate impact... but I do like the card

Duplicant could be a creature spot removal you're looking for.

Banewhip Punisher a bit more harder to abuse without prior synergy.

Big Game Hunter Depends how big your meta is.

Death Pits of Rath Since GY is like a second hand, it might have a place here?

Evil Twin Another target to copy hulk or something beefy in play.

That's all I could think of for creature spot removal that can target anything.

For Phenax:

Needs 3-4 more lands, I think. I'm talking Dismal Backwater, Dimir Guildgate, and gags Submerged Boneyard if nothing else. Better lands than those in no particular order are Dimir Aqueduct, Temple of the False God, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, and Opal Palace.

Also cards you could take out to put those in: Sphinx's Tutelage is better in a card draw based deck than a mill based deck. Maybe it'll get a dozen or so cards every other game, but I don't really think it's quite worth it. Isochron Scepter is good if you can hook it up with one of your half dozen instants that are worth while imprinting with it and it can go infinite w/ Dramatic Reversal and a Sol Ring or something, but I'm not sold. It's an easy two-for-one if an opponent gets rid of it and I feel like there'd be many situations that it's just a dead card in hand if you don't have one of your instants. I've seen how well Tormod's Crypt has worked, but it doesn't do enough to stay in the deck compared to some of your other "graveyard hate" cards. Plus, many of your other cards (literally) get their power from having stuff in your opponent's yard. Evil Twin isn't as bad as he thinks he is. As a removal spell he's slow and I don't see why you need a Clone in here. Body Double is worth it, though because 8/10 times people will have more creatures in their graveyard than on the battlefield against this deck. Disciple of Deceit feels... untrustworthy. If it works, though, by all means keep it. I'm not familiar enough with the deck to know what you would throw away and what you would want to go find. Maybe Crypt Incursion for the sane reason as Toromod's Crypt? Maybe switch it with Profane Memento? Also, maybe Bontu the Glorified could be cut?

Some other cards you could look out for: Altar of the Brood. Mind Sculpt. Siren of the Silent Song (I really like its draw and mill ability). Dinrova Horror, Far / Away, and Reality Shift are underrated removal spells. Also at least two more board wipes. Cyclonic Rift is just as good, if not better, here as it is anywhere else. In Garruk's Wake is pricy, mana-wise, but pretty nice. Nevinyrral's Disk is a classic. Profaner of the Dead works in here. And there are more at least decent black wipes that you could consider playing. And maybe you didn't think of these couple dudes, but they are good for butts and good in general: Disowned Ancestor, Dragon's Eye Savants and the best blocker of all time Fog Bank.

Happy Building!

First of all: great deck! I built a kinda budget version for my lokal playgroup (we set up a 20 limit for rares and mythics to keep it fair overall for everybody) and its loads of fun :D

I saw you swapped out Evil Twin for Phantasmal Image - isnt that destroying one of your troll moves?
