In Garruk's Wake Discussion

I think you could use more card draw. Phyrexian Arena would be a good choice, and so would Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip. Greed is another option. I think you could also use some more mass board wipes, and in black you could pull off In Garruk's Wake and Plague Wind, or Kindred Dominance. Those are three board wipes that allow you to keep your board state, which is so great with a token strategy. Nim Deathmantle might be better than Whip of Erebos. I also think that Olivia Voldaren is better than Olivia, Mobilized for War, unless you have some synergistic stuff going on with her.

I think I would pull New Blood. Nice flavor, but I don't think its worth it. Since you're running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, you should run Filth, too. And if you want a backup to Urborg, Blanket of Night is good. I think I'd dump Rakdos Charm, too. Usually good against token strategies, but you are running a bit of one yourself.

Maybe take out Debt to the Deathless and Feast of Blood and add in Boros Signet, Rakdos Signet, and Orzhov Signet, which ever you feel the need for more. Swords to Plowshares over Go for the Throat.

How does Well of Lost Dreams work for you? You have lots of life loss effects going on, so if it works well, then stick with it. If you find yourself tapped out most of the time that you would want to use it, then a more straightforward card draw engine or another mana rock might work out better.

Have you thought about the Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond combo? You're running half of it...

I hope that helps some. I love the vampire tribal theme, so I hope you get it working for you.

maxon it's hella fun!

Especially in multiplayer games.

One night I ultimated all three Planeswalkers, and boardwiped with In Garruk's Wake.

Good times.

A really cool list! As far as reccomendation goes, I've made a list of cards I would consider when making a Dimir Mill deck. I've included a short explanation to all the cards to express my opinion on them!

Mind Grind has the potential to mill a lot, especially in the late game!

Sanity Grinding is pretty cool and can screw someone up if you get a lot of blue mana symbols.

Dire Undercurrents, while useless by itself, can quickly become a nuisance if it sticks on the board for multiple turns.

Ghastlord of Fugue gets in whether your opponents like it or not. In addition to hitting for at least 4 a turn, you get to unconditionally exile the best cards in your opponents' hands.

Lich Lord of Unx gets pretty good as a mana sink in the late game. In the early game, he can sit back and spawn chump blockers. This card might not be the best in your current deck though, as it requires a focus on Zombies to become good. But I mentioned it anyway so that you know that this card exists.

Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is pretty good when he gets in. He doesn't have the most impressive body, but he mills at least 4 cards upon dealing combat damage to a player.

Nightveil Specter works in a similar manner to Mirko. However you can actually play the cards exiled with it. Note that you can't spend mana as it was of any color to cast the exiled cards!

Oona, Queen of the Fae is dumb and people are going to hate you forever if you play her. The hate is justified though, as she has a really strong milling ability and can clog up the board with tokens. Hated or not, she is very strong!

Perplex might not be the best counterspell out there, but it can trip an opponent up. It also has the strange but useful Transmute ability that lets you tutor for a card with the same CMC as Perplex. Note that while this card is an Instant in itself, you can only Transmute as a Sorcery!

Memory Plunder lets you cast any instant or sorcery in your opponents' graveyards. It even is a spell that lets you cast sorceries at instant speed! Imagine having access to instant speed In Garruk's Wake and Time Stretch!

Havengul Lich allows you to cast creatures from any graveyard and copies their activated abilities until end of turn. Just imagine reanimating a Helldozer and suddenly being able to kill all the lands! Note that just like Nightveil Specter, you can't spend mana as if it was of any color to cast the creatures!

Isleback Spawn is a bomb, no doubt about that! If your milling plan is going as it should be, this Kraken becomes a gigantic 8/16 for 7 mana! It even has Shroud to protect itself. This card is one of Phenax's best friends, especially when its toughness is 16.

Sire of Stagnation is a very good creature for these kind of decks. It doesn't even really need to do anything, it just sits there and diminishes your opponents' decks two cards at a time. In the worst case, it eats a removal spell or a counterspell. Its nice toughness is appreciated by Phenax. Note that the draw ability is not a "may"! You may find yourself having to discard if it gets out of hand. Should this card seem interesting to you, then it might be a good idea to include cards that increase your hand size, such as Reliquary Tower

Lastly Tree of Perdition has the power to put an opponent within kill range. Is your opponent playing lifegain and sitting safely on a three digit life total? Not anymore! In addition, it combos really well with Phenax, God of Deception!

I hope some of these cards seem interesting and that they help you with your deck! :)

Lashlar on The Ghave Token Shuffle

Mint0055 Thanks for the advice, Rootborn Defenses sounds a lot like Inspiring Call without the need for a +1/+1 on every token, so I'll definitely consider it. In Garruk's Wake and Duneblast are both pretty good board wipes, I'll probably add them in and feel out how they play with my group. A few board wipes is reasonable, but too much can start to aggravate people.

Mint0055 on The Ghave Token Shuffle

Pretty solid Ghave Deck that seems to cover all bases. I would go ahead and throw Duneblast and maybe at least one or two other board wipes. I know you want to avoid killing your tokens but in EDH there are just too many times that the opponents board state gets out of hand. You already have some of the best cards that give group indestructible. Maybe Rootborn Defenses would be perfect. And something like In Garruk's Wake since this Deck doesnt seem short on mana ramp.

I think you should definitely keep Kindred Dominance in there. When I run black, I also like to run some other lopsided boardwipes, like In Garruk's Wake and Plague Wind. Their CMCs are high, but I'll take it to wipe and then smack with tokens. Merciless Eviction is also good just due to its utility. I think I'd take out New Blood since you're already running Olivia Voldaren. Looks like a fun deck!

Ah! I knew I forgot a sac outlet creature, definitely running Falkenrath Aristocrat. For recursion I'm currently between something like Reclamation and the existing handful of things that spit out recursion for me right now, but they're all symmetrical (aside from Sheoldred). I was considering picking up Rise of the Dark Realms and Patriarch's Bidding in addition to some more selective burial and recursion spells to get my favorite friends back from the great beyond. Those two can grab everything at once, but at that point I've lost tempo and have just traded my card to undo their wrath effect card, so I'm not coming out ahead really. I'll still probably run Patriarch's Bidding when I finally get around to picking up a Cabal Coffers.

However, I also thought about running Extinction and naming Vampires, then setting off Living Death to bring all my creatures back but bury all of theirs. Ideally my yard would be full of bodies I'd been piling up for just this occasion. It seems like that's just casting Plague Wind or In Garruk's Wake or Kindred Dominance with extra steps. I think in this deck so far, less has been more, so I probably won't try it... Immediately.

I'll give Reclamation a shot while I investigate stuff like Faith's Reward or other "return things that died this turn" effects just for myself.
