Glaring Spotlight Discussion

Roil Elemental and Callous Oppressor also benefits from from blinking the same way silugmar does.

Thalakos Deceiver will most likely steal something if it isn't killed beforeit attacks.

Glaring Spotlight is needed to deal with hexproof.

Mind's Dilation and Expropriate are just fun, and strong.

Desertion is another fun counter spell, that can steal a creature or artifact

Clone can be upgraded to either Clever Impersonator or even just Stunt Double

Thought Vessel and Sol Ring would both be good.

There are also some questionable cards in here, like Butcher of Malakir, Overseer of the Damned, Sphinx of Uthuun.

You could find better versions of Bloodgift Demon, Possessed Skaab, Charcoal Diamond, Sky Diamond, and Ur-Golem's Eye

Also there are better Mind Control like cards than what you have, that are also cheaper mana wise. I would say that the best one you have is Corrupted Conscience

I also think Trinket Mage isn't that useful for this deck, not that many targets.

I see no Glaring Spotlight... Perhaps I need a week and a half of sleep, but perhaps YOU need a $0.20 one-drop. I've got it in my own deck for purposes of stealing things, and I can say for sure that you would have trouble getting around my Asceticism without it. It also acts as a convenient wincon.

Vortexflame on Kalitas Kills All the Things

Glaring Spotlight might help with killing Hexproof creatures. Sadistic Glee and Eternal Thirst are good alongside Kalitas' ability. Thought Gorger doesn't seem to help you too much, given that your Commander doesn't get any benefit from you discarding your hand, so consider swapping it out for Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (assuming this isn't budget). Ob Nixilis Reignited also seems like it would be a good fit for your deck. In Commander, your opponents will almost always opt to pay 3 life to Indulgent Tormentor, so you'd be better off running Underworld Connections if you want card draw. Exhume will help your opponents more than it will you, because your commander is meant to put their creatures in the graveyard and bringing them back won't help you. Consider Illusionist's Bracers.

Vortexflame on The Holy Hand Grenade

This is an amazing combination, but you don't have enough Valor Made Reals. Consider using Entangler instead. Godsend might be a way for Shaman en-Kor to remove attackers, even while the Priest of Penance is not on the battlefield. Glaring Spotlight can prevent your opponents from protecting themselves from your combo, and then be used as a Mother of Runes for your whole field for one turn. Seeing as though you have a pillow fort deck here that relies on killing attackers, consider Blood Artist. Sadistic Glee might be a better Eternal Thirst. Your whole deck rides on a certain combo. Consider using a Diabolic Tutor to set up said combo. All in all, this is an amazing deck.

Honestly, I don't really care if you put Mogg Maniac in the deck or not. After all, its your deck, do what you want. However, please don't say things like a certain card is bad because it can't block things with evasion or because it dies to removal, because news flash "All cards in magic have these qualities." Indestructible creatures will die to things like Grasp of Darkness, creatures with hexproof can die due to field wipes or can become vulnerable from cards like Glaring Spotlight. Even artifact creatures with reach (they can block creatures with fear, intimidate, flying) can't block cards that have shadow or horsemanship. At this point, I'd be more likely to accept "I don't like the art" as an excuse over these reasons.

iAzire on Which is the best

Arcane Lighthouse isn't THAT uncommon and is a great counter to Sigarda, Host of Herons. That isn't to say what you just mentioned isn't good advice UpperDeckerTaco. I would just suggest if you're running her, you will want to run Strip Mine, Wasteland, and Enchantment/Artifact hate. That hate will be ran for stuff like Glaring Spotlight and Bonds of Mortality. Sigarda's biggest issue I believe is the fact that she isn't in Blue and thus has a harder time defending herself. The same goes for any Voltron Commander than isn't in Blue.

I guess your idea on Blue is a local meta thing. In my personal experience, almost everybody runs Blue. I like to run Blue and if I'm not, I still run stuff like Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast in my Kaalia of the Vast deck for protection. Blue is EVERYWHERE!!

Thanks for the awesome suggestion I will surely replace Dirge of Dread with Glaring Spotlight. But I think I will stick to the Sorin, Grim Nemesis because of the knight ability. And I will surly take a look at your deck .Schwarze Sonne vs. massive creatures & tokens to see what I can use. Thanks Again!
