Chromatic Lantern for more Joiner Adept effects. Same with rocks like Fellwar Stone.

Dismiss into Dream, Devoted Druid goes infinite with some stuff like Hardened Scales, Krosan Restorer, Knacksaw Clique can untap your Kraj but with upside and more utility than cards like Simic Ragworm, same with Pili-Pala, Sage of Fables.

Funkydiscogod nice aditions to the deck, never knew any of this cards.

so i think im going -4 Wizened Snitches -2 Knacksaw Clique > +3 Lantern of Insight and +2Ornate Kanzashi

i'll keep Knowledge Exploitation for now because its the only good sorcery thief will see how it works out

i'm down for any other card you think will be a good add for this theme

Knowledge Exploitation should be in the sideboard. It's a lot of effort to go through, and I don't think there are many instants or sorceries worth casting for (assuming you're getting the discount). It's not like Cruel Ultimatum is very common these days.

Bribery or its budget replacement Telemin Performance would probably be better, but still sideboard for those decks where you know what you're going to get. Telemin Performance gets bonus points because it's lethal to creatureless decks. So, anyway...consider replacing Knowledge Exploitation with Muse Vessel or Commandeer or Gather Specimens.

I like Wizened Snitches and Knacksaw Clique, but what about using their noncreature counterparts? Lantern of Insight and Ornate Kanzashi have possibilities here, too I think.

Yesterday on What spells are there that ...

So I'm not currently looking for the likes of Commandeer or Spelljack, or Bribery or Praetor's Grasp, but cards that allow you to specifically play cards from the top of an opponent's library without first shuffling it.

Any creatures like Daxos of Meletis, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, Knacksaw Clique, Nightveil Specter. Jace's Mindseeker is fine too, though I'm preferably not looking for a two card combo like any mill card + Wrexial, the Risen Deep.

Any Instant or Sorcery spells like Stolen Goods or Villainous Wealth are neat too, or Artifacts like Ornate Kanzashi.

Thanks in advance for any help!

TrueTribal: I'm kinda iffy on adding the Primordials, mainly because I'll have to hold onto them in my hand until there's something sufficient enough in my opponents' graveyards to use. I'm not denying that they're incredibly powerful in a deck like this, but keeping 7-mana cards in my hand doesn't feel too good. The thing I like about cards such as Dimir Doppelganger and Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is that they'll generate advantage over the course of (hopefully) the entire game. Speaking of which, I'm not sure how I missed Lazav, but he seems like a much better Doppelganger except in niche scenarios. I'll definitely include him, thanks for the suggestions!

papahiggs: Seriously, how could I forget Intruder Alarm? I'll have to find a spot for it, probably over Traumatize. I don't want to saturate this deck with infinite combos; the Mindcrank combo is probably enough already (the combo you suggested is neat, though). I've toyed around with including more Inspired creatures in the deck, but most of them just don't compare to the other options available. The abilities are nice, but they don't help me out as much with my strategy as, say, Wall of Frost or Knacksaw Clique. Still, thanks for the suggestions!

I have never seen this combo with Knacksaw Clique and I love it so. It's going in my Sidisi deck immediately.

Speaking of that deck, I'd love your opinion - I Call Her Vera: Sidisi EDH. I think they play very similarly, since both are basically ports of Legacy Dredge into commander, haha. (Dread Return FTW!)

Mirror-Mad Phantasm normally sucks, but it's pretty sweet with Necrotic Ooze (because together they read "1U: Mill your deck") and has often enabled an out-of-nowhere win with Laboratory Maniac. I'd recommend it, along with Songs of the Damned and Yawgmoth's Will.

There's a new card called "Magus of the Will" in C16 - have you seen it? A Yawgmoth's Will stapled to a creature lets you "cast" it off of Necrotic Ooze as well.
