Couldn't someone just Extirpate or Surgical Extraction your Myr Retriever ? In this case Extirpate would seem to be the better choice.

sergiodelrio Nightmare Shepherd exiles the retriever and leaves a 1/1 that dies and does nothing, so it wouldn’t work. Besides, a four mana Myr Retriever isn’t very good. I use Infernal Tutor

stensiagamekeeper those are solid recommendations for sure and I have been building another list Mill to the Max that takes more of these type of cards into consideration. That being said I am adding 2 of Grinding Station , Myr Retriever , Heartless Summoning , Fraying Sanity and I also pre-ordered Ashiok, Nightmare Muse . I plan on taking out all 4 Ashiok, Dream Render + Nightveil Specter . I'm just not sure what to take out for the other 4 spots.

I like the Grinding Station + 2 Myr Retriever but how is the Altar of the Brood + Heartless Summoning supposed to work?? wouldn't it just kill the retrievers in an infinite loop?

Another way to build the turbo combo deck is with Heartless Summoning + Altar of the Brood / Grinding Station + 2 Myr Retriever . It has more combo pieces but it's faster (potential turn 2 kill).

Profet93 Yeah, there are a few cards I threw in just because I had them, and wanted to see if they were even worth while. lol I've considered Meteor Golem before, but was hesitant on his casting cost. I guess in this deck it wouldn't matter much. Ill try him out! Hes also a lot more affordable as well. But I do think the gate may be pretty good in my playgroup though, since a lot of them really like artifacts.

You're right on Dictate. I dont think I ever used its flash, even in my other decks. lol Grave Pact would definitely be better. The art is cooler too!

I always feel bad to cut Solemn Simulacrum ! lol He's always done work for me in other decks, but you may be right, the rings are just too bad ass. Ill try them out as well.

And i'm thinking the Myr Retriever would be a good one to drop. Especially for the top.

These should definitely beef this deck up a bunch! Thanks so much for the help. Way excited to try the cards out in this deck. Hopefully dont loose friends over it. lol

Cut Worn Powerstone for Basalt Monolith as agreed

Cut Barren Moor for Deserted Temple - Comes in tapped and cycling is a weak source of draw. Doesn't even count as a swamp

Cut Dakmor Salvage for Volrath's Stronghold - I see no reason dakmor should be in the deck.

Another card I forgot to mention, but cut Gate to Phyrexia for Meteor Golem - I know I recommended gate to phyrexia but I don't wholeheartedly love it since it's only artifacts and only on upkeep. It is definitely worth testing. That being said, whether you cut gate or another card, you should add meteor golem. It's a creature that you can recur and most of the time you aren't paying 7 for it anyways. It hits pretty much anything aside from lands so thats very useful.

How often do you find yourself using the flash on Dictate of Erebos , as I might cut it for Grave Pact . It fits on curve better with your commander. Triple black shouldn't be too hard.

Cut Solemn Simulacrum for Rings of Brighthearth - Sad robot is nice in other builds that are less competitive, but this build (given your low land count) seems a bit more powerful so sad robot seems less impactful.

Cut Sangromancer / Yarok's Fenlurker / Syr Konrad, the Grim / Myr Retriever for Sensei's Divining Top - Not sure which of these is best to cut. I've never even SEEN Yarok's Fenlurker, that's a very cool card. Weird, but cool. 2 mana exile hand hate on each opponent with an irrelevant buff seems nice.

Really cool deck! +1

Another combo I think you might be interested in is Heartless Summoning + Altar of the Brood + 2x Myr Retriever

I have several versions of ^^^ on my profile if you want to check them out!

Good luck!
