Tragic Slip Discussion

OneStrawSoldier on Double, Double, Toil and Trouble

This deck looks well thought out, and fun to play in multi-player. I have a deck that's pretty similar to this one. I run Thoughtpicker Witch as an additional sac outlet (plus it fits the "witch" theme) and Tenacious Dead as a chum who can be sacrificed repeatedly. Ogre Slumlord might be good if you don't mind the 5 mana cost. Tragic Slip is good control in decks like this as well. Either way, your deck seems pretty solid as is, well done.

Boza on Metal Dimir Maga Doom

Sylvok Lifestaff is the best thing against burn in these colors (plus some counterspells). Dimir trinket is one of my favorite archetypes and Myr Servitor is a cool addition to it. The rest, however, can use some work:

  • Brainstorm with no shuffle effects is bad.
  • Very few ways to deal with what the opponent throws at you.
  • No real way to have a solid late game.
  • Pieces of the puzzle with just 16 spells is mostly a dud.
  • Overall, not enough control in the deck means most games you will end up falling behind.

Change up the deck to rely a bit more on the graveyard and more emphasis on control. Cut the following:

3x Dimir Infiltrator
3x Tidehollow Strix
4x Brainstorm
1x Forbidden Alchemy
3x Negate
2x Bonesplitter
2x Viridian Longbow
4x Pieces of the Puzzle 2x Unearth

That is a total of 24 cards. Add the following:

1 Vault of Whispers (make this a playset of Vaults and you do not need seat of the synod at all)
4 Undying Evil - works with everything in the deck.
4 Augur of Skulls - combines great with the above card for 4 cards discard on turn 3. Is a solid blocker.
4 Mulldrifter - enables your mid-lategame, great with undying evil.
1 Executioner's Capsule, 1 Relic of Progenitus - a bit more Trinket Mage package.
4 Tragic Slip - removal that you can easily turn on.
1 Chainer's Edict - more removal with extra utility.

Other useful cards include 4 Chittering Rats and some number of 2-3 Crypt Rats, but I cannot figure out how to include them. For sideboard use:

K34 on Alesha, Who Smiles under a Budget (Under $20)

I like to put in suggestions for Cannibalize and Ashes to Ashes on decks running black. Not only are they dirt cheap to buy, but black exile is hard to come by. It's very annoying to Tragic Slip an Ulamog and just have it shuffle back in.

Solid budget deck. +1

In those cases, I'd side board Devour Flesh and put in Grasp of Darkness. That in combo with Tragic Slip should take care of anything with indestructible. Hexproof can be tricky to get rid of, but luckily I've seen very little of them.

Tragic Slip would be awesome. And it would help you keep balance in games where the cards you draw are not so good or a good bunch gets dealt with.

And getting more control over the board seems to be just the right thing in this deck since it buys you time.

And I would put in more card draw. I know its hard to do this in black but if you manage to include 4 spots of card draw in addition your deck would run more consistent. The more creatures you draw the more you can play and sacrifice.

Read the Bones could be good but I'm no good if it comes to modern meta cards. This card in general can help you sort out things you don't need from top deck and then draw cards.

And if you can or want to buy them I would include fetch lands. Why you ask? Because they thin out your deck enabling you to draw the nonland cards you need more consistant since you take out 2 cards with 1.

My last suggestion is to splash blue for card draw and for blue-black cards with helping effects in general.

I hope this helped.

I keep Tragic Slip as an anti Avacyn card. She shows up a lot in my play group, so I'm hesitant to pull that one.

Drop the Tragic Slip. Since it doesn't deal damage to players, it isn't useful.

Dictate of Erebos is too expensive at CMC of 5. I would replace with 4 Victim of Night.

Put 4 Zulaport Cutthroat in. You can probably drop 2 lands (due to lower without Dictate), a Despise and a Duress

Tragic Slip is also an option for extra removal, works well in a sacrifice deck.
