Siren of the Silent Song Discussion

Also, you don't have very much removal in the deck so far, I don't think, and you don't have much recursion. I'd also recommend more land than 29. Mortuary Mire is a good start for two of those.
- Psychic Spiral - recursion
- Sire of Stagnation - not simple mill, but mill-to-exile and draw power
- Siren of the Silent Song - sort of on theme plus mill and discard which is nice if your opponents try to draw answers
- Induce Paranoia - counterspell + mill
- Perplex - counterspell + mill + tutor if needed
- Dimir Charm - counterspell or removal or mill/control
- Psychic Drain - mill and lifegain
- Memory Erosion - not a counter but a deterrent
- Command Tower, Temple of Deceit, Dimir Guildgate, Sunken Hollow, Jwar Isle Refuge

I'd switch out Door of Destinies for Favorable Winds, take out Argothian Enchantress for Alluring Siren, maybe try to include Hypnotic Siren, Dulcet Sirens & Siren of the Silent Song too? I'm not sure I like the aura-theme for the deck, just a straight up Siren tribal with a couple spells would be fine. If you want to play some auras I'd recommend you play Aqueous Form, Curiosity, Curious Obsession, Molting Snakeskin or Unholy Strength. I'd also get rid of Sol Ring since it kind of goes against what casual decks are about, there's a reason it's even banned in Legacy...that's just my opinion though.

Hey i've been trying to make Disciple of Deceit work in a modern deck and this looks sweet. I would suggest getting rid of alot of the green cards in place of more discard like Duress or Kitesail Freebooter and run a playset of Paradise Mantle and some more removal and counter spells. If you can get Freed from the Real + Paradise Mantle on either Night Market Lookout or Siren of the Silent Song it combo kills much like the other green cards but easier on your mana base.

Needs 3-4 more lands, I think. I'm talking Dismal Backwater, Dimir Guildgate, and gags Submerged Boneyard if nothing else. Better lands than those in no particular order are Dimir Aqueduct, Temple of the False God, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, and Opal Palace.
Also cards you could take out to put those in: Sphinx's Tutelage is better in a card draw based deck than a mill based deck. Maybe it'll get a dozen or so cards every other game, but I don't really think it's quite worth it. Isochron Scepter is good if you can hook it up with one of your half dozen instants that are worth while imprinting with it and it can go infinite w/ Dramatic Reversal and a Sol Ring or something, but I'm not sold. It's an easy two-for-one if an opponent gets rid of it and I feel like there'd be many situations that it's just a dead card in hand if you don't have one of your instants. I've seen how well Tormod's Crypt has worked, but it doesn't do enough to stay in the deck compared to some of your other "graveyard hate" cards. Plus, many of your other cards (literally) get their power from having stuff in your opponent's yard. Evil Twin isn't as bad as he thinks he is. As a removal spell he's slow and I don't see why you need a Clone in here. Body Double is worth it, though because 8/10 times people will have more creatures in their graveyard than on the battlefield against this deck. Disciple of Deceit feels... untrustworthy. If it works, though, by all means keep it. I'm not familiar enough with the deck to know what you would throw away and what you would want to go find. Maybe Crypt Incursion for the sane reason as Toromod's Crypt? Maybe switch it with Profane Memento? Also, maybe Bontu the Glorified could be cut?
Some other cards you could look out for: Altar of the Brood. Mind Sculpt. Siren of the Silent Song (I really like its draw and mill ability). Dinrova Horror, Far / Away, and Reality Shift are underrated removal spells. Also at least two more board wipes. Cyclonic Rift is just as good, if not better, here as it is anywhere else. In Garruk's Wake is pricy, mana-wise, but pretty nice. Nevinyrral's Disk is a classic. Profaner of the Dead works in here. And there are more at least decent black wipes that you could consider playing. And maybe you didn't think of these couple dudes, but they are good for butts and good in general: Disowned Ancestor, Dragon's Eye Savants and the best blocker of all time Fog Bank.

Like how you've broken down the commander and taken advantage of its different aspects for the sake of versatility. Here's my thoughts, feel entirely free to disregard them:
Since you're playing black, how do you feel about adding some discard like e.g. Siren of the Silent Song (Inspired zombie with built-in evasion and a little bit of everything), (Liliana's Reaver) (deathtouch on block, extra token without block) and/or (Cabal Interrogator( (some synergy with Training Grounds but I dunno if it's worth it with multiple opponents)? (And obviously Waste Not if you do end up getting a lot.) Or are the million(five) counterspells already enough?
(Speaking of counterspells: Sorry if I'm missing something obvious here but wouldn't the all-powerful Mana Drain be worth including, especially with its recent reprint in Iconic Masters which will hopefully make it slightly less expensive? (((Also, the slightly greater color reliability of Negate feels better than the slight damage from Countersquall, but that's just me being extra picky.))))
That's all, keep it up

Paradox Haze seems pretty good with the god.
Overall, I would try to find some room for some synergistic mill. It really does feed your engine so well.
Siren of the Silent Song
Geth, Lord of the Vault
Lich Lord of Unx
Extract from Darkness
Mindcrank - combine with Bloodchief Ascension for combo goodness if you're into that
I also like adding the Fleshbag Marauder / Mimic Vat combo if both pieces are relevant, and they certainly would be here. Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a zombie.
And it is an awesome feeling getting the Gravecrawler // Corpse Harvester thing going. :)

For zombies: Prized Amalgam, Shepherd of Rot, maybe a Siren of the Silent Song for some discard stax, Withered Wretch/Crypt Creeper for additional gy hate , Cryptbreaker, Lich Lord of Unx , Lord of the Accursed, Vesper Ghoul

Ok, if you want some budget work, Breaking is a huge ally. Next, drop Traumatize (too costly for what it does) for Mind Funeral, and Siren of the Silent Song for Hedron Crabs. Finally, see if you can lay your hands on a few Fraying Sanitys, as that card makes any mill deck even more bonkers.
