Minister of Inquiries Discussion

I like the idea of Minister of Inquiries. I found a couple copies as I was organizing my cards over the weekend. I'm also adding a couple copies of Refurbish to add another way to get God-Pharaoh's Gift onto the battlefield.

I really like this idea. I've wanted to get that interaction to work but could never find a way. possibly you could try Minister of Inquiries so you can mill yourself?

What about Vraska's Contempt or Hour of Glory? Lost Legacy is effective, but against some decks that have different indestructible creatures, I always use one of each for removal. Also, here's the strategy of most Gift decks: Use Minister of Inquiries to get a God-Pharoah's Gift into your graveyard, then use 4 mana to use Refurbish. 4 Refurbish are essential, and also you should probably add a Spell Pierce to defend your artifacts from removal. Remove Seekers' Squire, because you're not running an explore deck and Dusk Legion Zealot is a lot better. Great deck Twence! (You might want to put this deck under the hub "Esper" :)

I look forward to seeing (if) any changes. I have my own Esper deck, maybe I'll try this out at FNM and get back to you.

Twinky400 Since almost all of the cards contribute to finding the combo it's very common to have 6 creatures in the graveyard by turn 6. There was one time I dealt 42 damage on turn 5. That was a perfect scenario but they can happen. I found out that 9 times out of 10 Walking Ballista was used simply to get a Gate to the Afterlife trigger. Play Ballista for 0 and get 2 creatures in the yard.

I can't remember any time a held on to God-Pharaoh's Gift long enough to cast it. There were a few times I discarded it and then regretted it a few turns later due to my graveyard being nuked. Don't be afraid of having your graveyard nuked though. There was one time my opponent was at 26 life, he nuked my graveyard, but I had 2 Minister of Inquiries on the table so by my next turn, 4 Minister triggers later, I had the combo back in my graveyard and I hit him for 28 damage.

I just realized my sideboard wasn't up to date so I went ahead and updated it. I'll write a sideboard guide to give you some more guidance. Keep in mind I haven't played this deck much since Temur was banned so I'm not sure how it matches up against Grixis Energy.

Lastly, Aether Hub is mainly just to get more minister triggers however there were a few times I used it for mana. The mana base is fairly consistent so that should be rare.

All credit to SaffronOlive for this one as it is basically his Mono-black monument deck except I've crossed it with a God-Pharaoh's Gift deck that has had all the expensive cards removed (and unfortunately Minister of Inquiries and Chart a Course).

Without blue it has a little trouble finding it's pieces however and I'd like some suggestions of how I can take its consistency up a notch. Also I want to know what people think of the pirate tribal sideboard plan.

This deck needs much more than explore to stock the graveyard. Basically once per turn there's a sixty percent chance you put one card in the graveyard. I think you need the 4 of Minister of Inquiries and 4 of Champion of Wits. I think you also want one more good reanimation target maybe Noxious Gearhulk or a big green creature. Also maybe a second copy of gift. For cuts I would go down Seekers' Squire and Wildgrowth Walker. And a few removal spells. Once you get going you run over threats.

Have you thought of Minister of Inquiries? It mills at instant speed (after summoning sickness of course), provides an early body for blocking, and is a place for your energy from Glimmer of Genius to end up in.

Have you considered using Approach somewhere in either the mainboard or sideboard? It can win the game with the control set up you already have. If not that, it does at least provide 7 life to stabilize. Also, Minister of Inquiries is a good card. I'm aware you're going for the combo kill. Minister can get there deck smaller in the early game, uses energy provided by Glimmer, and can block.
