Hey I think you have a lot of 4 drops. I think Hunted Witness , Mortify , Resplendent Angel , Lyra Dawnbringer , Militia Bugler , Fungal Infection all might be worth consideration to help this deck curve a bit. Cheers :)

This is interesting! I have seen some Jund/Sultai lists but not straight golgari... Might I suggest Fungal Infection for some early interaction? It is awesome in RDW/WW matchs as you can 2-for-1 by killing a steam-kin and blocking a Fanatical Firebrand. Its decent vs golgari midrange as you can kill jadelights and branchwalkers before they can explore.

The Warkite Marauder into Fungal Infection is a sweet combo, even if a little hard to pull off. I feel like Siren Stormtamer is a great way to avoid the strong creatures dying in the first place and it costs less than copying them. Thanks!

Warkite Marauder and Fungal Infection have been a sick combo i've been using on arena as well

If I were in a spot to play Unmoored Ego, I'd much rather play Sorcerous Spyglass. Period. I've had this argument with many people, and I think the deck has enough ways to deal with Teferi. Now, nothing is too slow in the current standard as long as it impacts the board. Literally. As long as you have some early tempo going on, you shouldn't worry about Dream Eater or Lazav being too slow, and Lazav blocks fairly well on turn two against aggressive decks, having three toughness. (Also notice that this is NOT a tempo deck but a midrange deck.) And if anything is too slow for this deck, it's Disinformation Campaign, since it's often very clunky in aggressive matchups and should be in the sideboard at max. Thief of Sanity always gets killed, because it has to be killed before anything else. Just getting one hit with it is often enough to swing a game in our favor. I've considered Fungal Infection in the sideboard but ended up choosing Dead Weight over it since it kills a lot more stuff.

I run a Dimir Surveil Tempo deck with Unmoored Ego in the sideboard. It is single-handedly the reason I have never lost to a Teferi, Hero of Dominaria or Izzit Drakes deck. Being able to take all of your opponents win conditions out right off the bat is great. Dream Eater is way too big and slow for this style of deck. I cut Lazav, the Multifarious because it was too slow and drawing it early game is so bad. It doesn't block well and has a very unassuming 1/3 body. I run 3 copies of Disinformation Campaign in the main and it is has been invaluable. Blood Operative has always felt like a side board card and I have 2 copies in mine. It is very good against Izzit Drakes and Golgari. I don't run any Thief of Sanity as it has always just died when I played it and I like having a wider array of mainboard removal. Fungal Infection is a card I highly recommend against boros, mono red, and golgari.

Athraithe: Agreed. I took Detection Tower out of the maindeck when I added more counter magic to the list since I was banking on countering the hexproof things before they became a problem. I recently reworked the deck to be more removal-heavy and less counter-heavy and with this build, I definitely agree that Detection Tower should return to the maindeck.

For the SB, I ditched the Fungal Infection, The Eldest Reborn, and Disinformation Campaign, per your suggestion, and went down 1x Cast Down. I added 2x Price of Fame and 2x Duress. I think bringing in the Duresses and taking out the Thought Erasures in control mirrors is a more effecient method of clearing the way for a Thief of Sanity or one of the wincons is better than a 3rd Negate in the SB.

I like this list, looks fun to play. Against Control you can only board 2 thought erasures, a lot to deal with creature based Decks though,... maybe 3 Duress instead of Golden Demise and Fungal Infection? Still +1!
