Mystical Teachings Discussion

I'm kind of disappointed, now. Generally, in pauper, a Toolbox deck is very graveyard-based. I'm not hating it, but to the penny players outside of the realm think of "toolbox" as anything that can evoke something to your hand, for example Mystical Teachings can evoke a card from your library at any point, as can Tortured Existence.

Mystical Teachings is single card that can set up a two-card instant-only combo, like Reiterate+Early Harvest.

That's very fair. Evincar's Justice has it's place as a wrath (even though it only hits tiny creatures/tokens - which Echoing Decay can be better at), but Brush with Death, because of the fact that it doesn't damage you, makes it good in grindy matches. These are just some suggestions I had for the sideboard, perhaps, because I like to think of Dimir decks as toolboxes if they don't focus on the graveyard (or faeries lol). I didn't necessarily mean for these to be-must includes, but it gives you more options (especially nice when you run Mystical Teachings). In my own playtests, I find sorcery-speed stuff (like Chainer's Edict) to be ineffective against more aggressive lists - so you might want to consider something like Diabolic Edict in the sideboard because it can hammer aggro decks by denying them early-game board state. Any early- game scenario that Chainer's Edict will help you in - Diabolic Edict will do surprisingly better. That's just my personal experience based on my local/friend-group meta - so you should definitely make these decisions based on the situations you'll find yourself in.

@mean_green_machine, the main reason I run Basilica Screechers over more Mourning Thrulls is for the Extort, which can help get that bit of reach you sometimes need. Another reason is because they don't die to Electrickery and other 1 damage sweepers. Considering the current meta, I think that's pretty important.

Beckon Apparition I've really liked for a few good matchups. Against Reanimator, you shut down their main gameplan. Against Stompy, Aristocrats, or similar decks, Undying creatures lose most of their value. Against Control, key flashback cards get neutered, such as Mystical Teachings or Forbidden Alchemy. Not to mention, the token is a flier and both white and black, so good for Edge of the Divinity.

I've been considering Castigate for a while now, but I'm just running the list as is while the meta is how it is now.

Thanks so much for your feedback and suggestions!! :)

I think it is at it best in grindy matches like the kuldotha boros and monoblack control where you may exhaust your resources faster and need to reload and to not pay life for it.

Wickerbough Elder is a card that i had 2 mainboard but reduced it to 1 and maybe will end up taking them out, it is kind of ok in some matchups, but i believe we can play better things, and i find that we need to have some creature that can beat down faster.

Till now the worst matchup i had was against the tron deck that uses Mystical Teachings, if you can't be fast enough and let them assemble their game you just can't win...

When you have results let us know!!

IlGuale, I thought about rolling thunder, but the double red seemed hard to hit consistently, as well as it not being tutorable with Mystical Teachings. I might try it again. I like the idea of crypt rats, though. 4 mana to clear the board seems good, especially when I run so few creatures anyway. I also had the gorilla shaman earlier in the version of the deck, but it really didn't help in late game. sure, I can nuke their lands, but if they already have enforcers and atogs out, it really doesn't do much. Granted, it is a savage turn 2 play, but it never showed up when I needed it to.

Gattison just saw comment. Id like to suggest my Pauper Nine (based on how any deck in these colors should play these cards and also their general total dominance)
