Extirpate

Instant

Split second (As long as this spell is on the stack, players can't play spells or activated abilities that aren't mana abilities.)

Choose target card in a graveyard other than a basic land card. Search its owner's graveyard, hand, and library for all cards with the same name as that card and exile them. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

generalrenard the only reason i have Extirpate is i already had them. One day I'll get Surgical Extraction and trade them out.

Any particular reason for Extirpate over Surgical Extraction?

Fetch and Shock lands (in your case Polluted Delta, Marsh Flats, Flooded Strand and Watery Grave) are always a good choice, so why don't you add them?

Then, remember you have Archive Trap, so you should find a way to make your opponent search his library, maybe Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin?

25 lands are too much, you need to be very fast or your opponent will kill you first!

Better alternatives to Lost Legacy are Surgical Extraction and Extirpate, they cost less and since you mill his deck, it will be easy for you to use them

You need something that let's you draw, so why not Visions of Beyond or, also, a less powerfull Opt or Serum Visions?

Consuming Aberration is too slow and too easy to destroy in my opinion.

Do you want to spend some money on your deck? Add some Snapcaster Mage

In my opinion Startled Awake  Flip is too slow and Talent of the Telepath isn't a good card you want to draw if your opponent plays only creatures, I'd add more mill cards, such as Thought Scour or Mesmeric Orb

Personally I don't like Sleep. Your opponent plays tons of creatures? Use Crypt Incursion or Fatal Push

A good sideboard can help you, so I'd add Leyline of the Void or Relic of Progenitus, Pithing Needle or Sorcerous Spyglass, Set Adrift or anything that could remove Leyline of Sanctity from the battlefield. Other suggestions are Damnation, Hurkyl's Recall (against affinity) and Murderous Cut

To be fair, Dimir needs some love. Cipher and Transmute were terrible, and it's nice to see UB branching away from their repetitive "mill and profit" themes.

Unmoored Ego will probably be a worse Extirpate/Surgical Extraction in most cases except Tron lands, in which case there might still be better options, especially since it won't affect lands already played.

WizardOfTheNorthernCoast on Strongest Color?

The 'issue' here is rather that everyone has a different interpretation of the title I'd say :)

  • If you consider monocolored competitive builds - we're still in the Modern section right? -, I think Red is the most powerful, simply because it has the ability to close games much faster. You will steal the majority of your game 1's.

  • If you consider what the color can bring to the table (which is how I understood the thread), I still think Black is the strongest. White can indeed deal with any nonland permanent just on his own, but honestly how many O'ring do you see at your LGS/FNM/PPTQ/GP?

And very specifically APPLE01DOJ, when you say 'you can't beat KCI unless you discard it', that's exactly why I state that black is better : Thoughtseize KCI, Surgical Extraction/Extirpate it and problem gone ;)

Tasigur is fine, he's just not as big a body as Gurmag Angler. There's no specific reason against it, he's undoubted value, but given the nature of our graveyard there are frequently going to be things in it we don't need or want to stay there (so we can cast the Ruinator) and it gives the opponent a bit too much control, feel free to try it out, but I'm not certain of it's value.

The no group: Commandeer is definitely too much jank, the Corpse Connoisseur is a touch expensive and unnecessary even unearthing him, and I think you know why Mass Polymorph doesn't go in the deck. lol

The maybe group: Corpseweft is beautiful jank, worth a try, but it may be too jank. The deck is already running about as many creatures and as few lands as I could reasonably get it, and it's frequently not guaranteed to be able to cast the Ruinator turn 3 so I don't think going down lands, control, or creatures for it is a good idea. Crypt Incursion is too mana expensive as graveyard hate for the opponent, too indiscriminate for self graveyard hate, and really only relevant in a few matchups for life gain. However it might work out in the sideboard. Forbidden Alchemy really good, but I think it's too mana expensive, I'd rather run Opt, Nagging Thoughts or Plunge into Darkness... Which I might look into. All of these are viable for a more budget build of the deck for certain, along with Halimar Depths and Mortuary Mire.

The Yes group: Extirpate/Surgical Extraction are obvious includes that I totally missed maindeck and might fit in somehow, maybe going down the Fatal Push and the Nihil Spellbomb for a pair of either. Logic Knot if you're building this deck and you're smart, that card goes over Ulamog's Nullifier in the sideboard. I'm not smart, so I'm going to do some soul serching.

Are these cards to janky to be included? :P

Commandeer

Corpseweft

Corpse Connoisseur

Crypt Incursion

Extirpate You know, for tutoring out more Scourges or being sweet mainboard hate! Forbidden Alchemy

Logic Knot

Mass Polymorph Oh such sweet, sweet jank! xD

Is there any particular reason why this deck shouldn’t run Tasigur, by the way? :o
