Sire of Stagnation Discussion

multimedia on [Primer] Yarok, The Value Engine

An area to ponder about improving is the the high avg. CMC which is 3.7. Currently here for ramp there's only seven reliable additional mana sources (Sol, Talismans, Wood Elves, Springbloom and Reach) which is low. What I mean by reliable are cards that don't require you to have another card to be ramp. Burgeoning, Azusa, Coiling, Risen, Uro are all good cards, but to be ramp sources they require that you either have a land in your hand or a land on top of your library which is not reliable.

Mystic Remora is a powerful one drop in multiplayer Commander. It's not ramp, but it helps as a way to keep making land drops because it will draw you a lot of cards. Dream Stalker can be a backup for Shrieking Drake for the combo. You have a backup for Cloud of Faeries, but don't have one for Shrieking.

Cards to consider adding to reduce the avg. CMC:

Cards to consider cutting to reduce the avg. CMC:

Plague is a nine drop, In Garruk's Wake is another nine drop and is better for this effect. Sire and Bonds have good triggered abilities with Yarok, but they only trigger when your opponents do something. This makes both of them in my opinion the least good of the five/six drops since you don't want to have to rely on your opponents to get value from a five/six drop. Splendid Reclamation is good with Scapeshift, but that's really it since you've cut mill and The Gitrog Monster.

Sire of Stagnation is also a great way to punish your foes if you can ramp into it early

I agree. Totally forgot about that part of the text. Sorry about that. She should be really good in that case.

Hightower and Clique. They're great. I personally really like Sire of Stagnation as well though. I could see it being cut because of its Mana cost, but definitely not because of its ability. It's a very powerful card. I agree with our friend that you're not necessarily wanting small increments of mill, but the value of this card comes through the draw engines it provides. I've seen Stagnation played and the person draw 6 cards before their next turn. That's very good in my opinion.

Your call my friend

Valius & alechodgin23 - How about a The Haunt of Hightower or Knacksaw Clique to replace Sire of Stagnation ? I had also considered Avatar of Woe , Oona, Queen of the Fae and Endbringer , but feel like those first two would synergize a bit better with the rest of the deck.

*I just ordered a few replacements and will update my list once I receive them! You're suggestions are appreciated! Please don't forget to upvote my deck!

Cards you could remove to make space for better synergistic ones are:

Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker
Sire of Stagnation
Dreamborn Muse (I go back and forth on this but I still feel it’s worth taking out unless self mill is a strategy for you)
All your enchantments except Fraying Sanity
Aether Gale
Brainspoil ( Grisly Spectacle is better)
Dark Deal
Karn's Temporal Sundering
Intellectual Offering

If I was building this deck, that’s where I would start. Of course it’s your deck, and if anything is sentimental then by all means keep it in.

Mirko Vosk isn’t all that great unless he can connect with the opponent. You’ll do more mill with your walls than you will with him. Replace him with Avatar of Woe

Sire of Stagnation isn’t really on theme here, and is expensive. You’re better off with Lord of the Void or Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger if you’re looking for an impactful creature, but I’d probably choose Geth, Lord of the Vault or Oona, Queen of the Fae since they’re more on flavor and are good mana sinks if needed.

You have very little spot removal, Hero's Downfall , Doomblade etc, so be careful there. Also, Black has access to Plague Wind In Garruk's Wake and even Mutilate , and you definitely should be running Cyclonic Rift over Aether Gale . Board wipes are important, and you’ll have the largest toughness to survive those “all creatures get -x/-x” effects, so make use of them - Toxic Deluge would probably be the absolute best.

There’s good equipment to increase toughness, like Slagwurm Armor and Accorder's Shield , and Illusionist's Bracers on a mortivor or nighthowler is potentially deadly.

Don’t forget about Laboratory Maniac , because you can mill yourself.

All those cards that mill opponents when you draw a card are taking away from other cards you need unless you’re drawing a ton of cards in a turn. Notion Thief and Teferi's Puzzle Box is the absolute best combo for dimir (imho) and pairs well with those cards, but a lack of Howling Mine like effects makes these cards less relevant to the mill from your walls. Memory Erosion will just do you more work.

Tutoring is important if you’re running combo, so don’t forget Diabolic Tutor or other expensive ones if you feel like buying them.

Bojuka Bog .

Dimir-doppleganger and Lazav, Dimir Mastermind are kind of must haves to make use of opponents’ big beefies and eldrazi (if any).

Biggest thing is just remember you’re trying to mill a billion at a time, not little bits here and there. If a card isn’t milling a ton, replace it with something else that’s more impactful. Combo pieces are nice, but without tutoring they’re unreliable.

Card I think are a MUST HAVE, though, are definitely Necrotic Ooze , Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Cyclonic Rift , propoganda, Crawlspace , and Bloodchief Ascension . At least find space for those.
