Leaden Myr Discussion
3 weeks ago
To make this deck levels better, Fabricate and Thoughtcast for card advantage, Path to Exile or Fatal Push for removal, Marsh Flats, Flooded Strand, and Polluted Delta for a bit of land advantage, and Watery Grave, Hallowed Fountain, and Godless Shrine for a serious land base.
Switch Paradise Plume for the signets:
Under Tribal for artifacts you have:
Other than that, maybe Academy Ruins?
I am a bit burnt out now, let me know if I helped out!

PickleNutz That certainly seems to be the problem thus far from play-testing it. I feel like I should lower the curve, but I'm not sure what to take out in terms of the later game big drop/get from the graveyard creatures. I could add a Leaden Myr and Copper Myr to add in some extra mana but I'm worried that if they're a late game draw they'll be of little benefit. And good call on the lands. I have a Reflecting Pool that I can add in. I'll add in the City of Brass and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth as well.

You really need to squeeze a Black producing rock or two in here to maximize your Paradox Engine combo ability. Literally just a Gilded Lotus could do wonders here. Lotus, two generic mana production (Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, etc.) and Erratic Portal, with engine make infinite Gonti casts. Also things like Charcoal Diamond, Leaden Myr, Skull of Ramos, Mox Opal, Coalition Relic, etc. In my 3 or 4 playtests, I got a lot of mana rock production, but had to leave mana sitting on the floor because it was all generic, and my hand required black mana. I also never saw a land doubler, so that may have just been on me, but still.
Also +1 just for Gonti/Blade of Selves interaction. Sweet.

I'd run Mind Stone over Pristine Talisman because of the lower CMC, and I'd definitely go for the full playset of Leaden Myr. Right now you're going to have a lot of games in which the ramp doesn't start until turn three or four, and unless your meta is pretty casual that means you'll be dead long before you can start playing those heavy hitters.
I'd also consider Fatal Push, or maybe Go for the Throat, as well as Murderous Cut besides Dismember. Cheap removal is going to be your best way to keep things even if the ramp doesn't come together right away.

Pia's Revolution is a non-bo with Marchesa's trigger, since anyone can send the modular card back into your hand at no cost, and just having them return to the battlefield is probably better.
Treasure Mage can help you search for any of your big game enders. Also, Muddle the Mixture and Drift of Phantasms can help dig for key robots or sac outlets.
Very small critique, but because your commander is 4 CMC and wants to attack as soon as possible to protect herself, and you have a relatively low colored mana symbol count in the majority of your spells, you may want to trim the 3 CMC colored mana rocks like Obelisk of Grixis, Darksteel Ingot, and Commander's Sphere, for 2 CMC colorless rocks, like Mind Stone, Thought Vessel, or the Mana myrs (Silver Myr, Leaden Myr, and Iron Myr). This can also help alleviate the issues of your low land count in the early game.
Marchesa also facilitates some amazing draw options such as River Kelpie and Mulldrifter, who you can recur by adding a +1/+1 counter with say Unspeakable Symbol in response to the evoke trigger.
I don't know your meta, but single target removal like Battle at the Bridge and Devil's Play will be worse than a wrath like Blasphemous Act or Toxic Deluge over the long term.

Nice deck- I have a list here Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox of functional modern black cards, Lashwrithe, Vendetta, Victim of Night, Duress and Delirium Skeins are all notable for being cheap and helping stabilize lower teir black decks in a competitive meta. I'd consider cutting the battlesphere unless you chose to run a little more ramp, Leaden Myr or Myr Reservoir are notable in this way.

Hmmm... I'm an avid fan of everything Dimir, and Withengar is my BFF. This is a very nice deck, but the issue with running all of the big bad demons is that the CMC is typically off the charts. I suggest you add a bit of mana ramping (Leaden Myr, etc.) any constructive criticisms on my demon deck, Withengar Unfriended would be much appreciated.

If the combo is your primary kill, then you needs to run more than one copy of each.
I would look at some artifact based mana ramp like Springleaf Drum, Leaden Myr, Rakdos Signet, Talisman of Indulgence, Mind Stone, or similar cards to help get to the 5 mana for enchantments faster. Depending on budget or collection, you could even look at Lotus Bloom.
You'll notice that I suggested the cards that tap for red as well as black. This opens you up to Insolent Neonate, Stromkirk Noble, and Rakish Heir for more creatures. Splashing red man also get you Faithless Looting or Cathartic Reunion. Card draw is always better than tutoring.
