Squirrel_of_War on Yarok's Twisted Nightmare

@deathchobo this deck is not a full on landfall build, but there are ways to trigger landfall additional times. Sylvan Safekeeper can sac all the lands and World Shaper can bring them back, Muldrotha can play lands from the GY, and Scapeshift can outright win games. Coiling Oracle , Risen Reef , Solemn Simulacrum , and Wood Elves can be ninjutsued back to my hand with Fallen Shinobi or Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow and played again, blinked with Deadeye Navigator , or copied with Bramble Sovereign . I have not tested the deck much but I will be playing it this weekend so I'll find out what areas need tuned up. My meta is pretty ruthless as well so I'll see how well I do. Thanks for the comments and feedback!

@Meta1911 I played a full on landfall build two weeks ago and it wasn't fun, it was too reliant on lands and it seemed like everything required an extra step to work since I needed Yarok, a card with landfall, and a land to trigger the ability. This build keeps the more fun landfall cards and a toolbox of other goodies. One of my favorite parts is the large suite of spells I can fetch with Spellseeker or Muddle the Mixture . Thanks for your comment and feedback!

SideBae on Varina Zombie Tribal EDH

With regard to cuts: If you want to run Zombie Master and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , you don't need Zombie Trailblazer anymore. Library of Leng is an interesting card, but I'm not sure it's good enough to merit an include; I'm assuming that it's meant to interact with Varina, Lich Queen 's looting ability. I just think there're better things you can do with the slot -- same goes for Desecrated Tomb . Their impact is marginal most of the time, and inserting more card draw or artifact ramp seems likely to be better.

I'm guessing Call to the Netherworld is meant to buy back cards while interacting with Varina's ability. I think running a to battlefield reanimation spell, like Reanimate or Animate Dead , would be simply better. Gravedigger and Eternal Taskmaster are similar cards I'd cut.

Ertai, the Corrupted is a card I think many people overrate. Five-mana is a very high cost, and cards like Daring Apprentice and Ertai, the Corrupted are worse than regular Counterspell s because your opponents know to play around the counter effect.

If you're running Phyrexian Altar , I'm not sure Ashnod's Altar is necessary. Including tutors like Demonic Tutor makes redundancy less important; similarly, including tutors would allow you to run just one Merciless Eviction or Austere Command effect rather than both.

Other cards to consider I didn't think of earlier: Undead Augur , Midnight Reaper , Fallen Shinobi , Rot Hulk , Forgotten Creation , God-Eternal Oketra , and Eternal Skylord .

I must say that Sarkhan420X is right. Again, a little bit of a context on what kind of deck you wanted to play or your kind of playgroup/meta would have definitely been useful.

Given that, I have voted for Yuriko. Here are my reasons. She can get around commander tax, and this already makes her amazing. She focuses no particular player at a time, but everyone at the same time. She gives you card advantage. In dimir you have access to very interesting cards (e.g. Fallen Shinobi just to name one), but also all the tutors and a good choice of combos, if you're into that. Good battlefield and interaction control. This freedom of choice is what made me pick her among the others.

Personally, I'd build her as a ninja tribal (with the good ninjas), filling the remaining slots with goodstuff cards, plus Xenograft and Arcane Adaptation for the lols (so everything else is a ninja too, attack for the win).

Hi, I really like the deck. Silent-Blade Oni is a decent card, despite high cost, fits very well with the commander. From Modern Horizons, Archmage's Charm is good for a Sol Ring, and has other options, and Fallen Shinobi is also a nice card along the same lines as Silnt-Blade. M20 has the Agent of Treachery as well, almost a must have.

Maybe you could do an +1/+1 counters version of aristocrats with Undying and cards like Epochrasite ... basically sacrifice them into a powerful engine before the end of everyone's turn.

Or... (here's one): Insurrection , Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Diluvian Primordial could be a "I play your cards" betrayal theme:
