It That Rides as One Discussion

Verbatiam, those are all good points, but that's why this is a list of bends, not just breaks. also It That Rides as One Flip has a colorless identity, but it's essentially a white card (Lone Rider Flip), and white doesn't usually have access to trample. Normally black cards only get creatures back from the graveyard to the hand, so Shrouded Lore's potential to get back other card types pushes it towards green territory (which it was originally, but, Planar Chaos). Avoid Fate is a precursor to now-normal hexproof instants, but there will be instances in which they don't do the same thing (it doesn't protect against abilites or sorceries, for example). I included Hour of Eternity because it's essentially a reanimation spell in mono-blue, and mono-blue decks typically lack creature recursion - this list is meant to help out decks with color restrictions overcome their intrinsic shortcomings.

I love the list, only thing is I think its a little exagerated and could use a little trimming.
Hour of Eternity is the eternalize mechanic, which was primary in blue, it is similar to multiple other blue effects, such as dredge in how it exiles cards from a graveyard, or clone and it puts a copy of a creature onto the battlefield.
Shrouded Lore seems like a very black card, its the combination of returning something from the grave and forceing your opponent to "chose" something that benifits you, similar to Torment of Hailfire, Forbidden Ritual, and Tyrant's Choice
Love the list, hope you like the suggestions

Gattison and I talk about this all the time! Here's are few that you might want to add: Dawn Charm, Resurrection, It That Rides as One Flip and I believe there are a few other white creatures with trample. Im sure Ill think of some others. Thanks for putting this together!

Man I've got a big ol' hardon for Lone Rider Flip. It That Rides as One Flip is metal as fuck, and it's a BEAST. I've had the most success with a turn 2 Glory-Bound Initiate (he and Honored Crop-Captain are main the reasons to add imo) attacking exerted turn 3 after playing the Rider. He's awesome presence turn 3 if he flips so that's really sweet. Certainly, Lathnu Hellion is better than the Rider in a vacuum, but as a 2-of I've found Lone Rider Flip to be just awesome. I'll goldfish a bit to see if a swap in that 2-of slot seems worth it.

@ amh62993 - This deck is horrific!
...bad puns aside, allow me to suggest a few things for your consideration.
Consuming Aberration is a card I think has a place in any Dimir build. Many think it is only relevant in mill decks, but really this beast just minds its own business. Sure, you won't win the game with this as your only mill engine. But you will definitely put your opponents at a disadvantage while you get a huge beater.
The following creatures are part of the Consuming Aberration Fan Club: Sewer Nemesis is the president; Nemesis of Reason is the treasurer; Nighthowler hypes up the group; Guiltfeeder is the jerk that makes fun of people outside the club; Geralf's Mindcrusher is the guy that only comes like twice, never to be seen again.
Phyrexian Revoker is wonderful commander hate (or any creature with an activated ability too good to let happen)
Mindleech Mass is expensive to put down, but that ability...
Void Maw can be a finisher late-game.
Greater Harvester (which honestly feels more like a Demon than a Horror)
And, of course, Phyrexian Librarian
Good luck, and happy deck-teching!

Your deck is already really close to Soul Sisters. As a matter of fact, you have most of the cards for it already.
Here's a few examples and links of the deck:
White/Black Soul Sisters
White/Red Soul Sisters
Mono-White Soul Sisters by Louis Torres 8th. Place Finish
Mono-White by Derek Meyers 3rd. Place Finish
List of Soul Sisters decks on MtG Goldfish

I'd also suggest a second color.
The thing you'll find about these types of decks is how much easier it is to use the life gain to pump up your team. You don't need Aetherflux Reservoir or Felidar Sovereign when you can just beat people's faces in with It That Rides as One Flip, Serra Ascendant, and Ajani's Pridemate!

I had quite a long breakdown typed up but the site ate it. In hindsight, this should be more comprehenisble.
Long story short, Monocolour will be cheapest and most stable. I'll steer you away from control, as in control you tend to see a lot of the deck, which means that any 'weak link' cards show up and lose you games, combined with control's bad place in the meta its not super efficient.
Budget Plow Under/Acidic Slime/Brutalizer Exarch is great if you have access to ramp and don't mind your opponnents hating you, Teir 1 Landloss' reliance on Blood Moon does mean you'll need a heavy variant. U fearie tempo is playable- Quickling and Spellstutter Sprite with Familiar's Ruse and cheaper etb, as well as some shenanigans with Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch. The key cards that make full faeries good and controlly, Cryptic Command and Vendilion Clique are pricy as all hell though, meaning your deck will have to fit into a different neiche, likely tempo. I'll reccomend mono red 'just spam hasty creatures' for aggro, or Hunted Horror(for leyline) with a mono black list for midrange. Duress covers for a lot of gaps. Boggles is tricky as the value is spread across a lot of cards. A similar setup running heroic triggers and fragile but strong/growing creatures with Vines of Vastwood/Blossoming Defense/Heroic Intervention will likely be your best bet. Ajani's Pridemate/Voracious Wurm/It That Rides as One Flip type cards. It will be slower as you'll need the mana for protection, so bear that in mind.
Silhana Ledgewalker/Gladecover Scout/Slippery Bogle/Invisible Stalker is pretty cheap, the trick is making them pump out the damage without the dumb enchantments or the protection of totem armour. You might manage that with a dumb interaction like Dictate of the Twin Gods, or just counterspells and Banshee's Blade type threat growing.
I enjoy building decks more than I enjoy playing, honestly, so If you let me know what sort of deck you want to emulate, I'll see what I can dredge up to support it. If you can figure out 3-4 cards you want to play every game, thats most of the deck already there.
