An alternative to Dismember could be Tragic Slip. Costs less, and can kill almost everything (as long as you can target it). The -1/-1 can kill the helper creatures, and the -13/-13 can kill the Blightsteel Colossuses

CarnariumKeeper on Tymaret Tiny Leaders

I JUST built a Tymaret deck for Tiny Leaders. Playtested a bit, worked out kinks. It'll be posted here in a little bit, but here the cards that have been working really well:

Pawn of Ulamog, Flesh Carver, Mortician Beetle, Tuktuk the Explorer, Humble Defector.

In addition, here are some Tiny Leaders staples that I would recommend to anyone:

Tragic Slip, Lightning Bolt, Dark Ritual, Unearth, Smother.

If you want to go all out on a token strategy (like I have), you will want:

Hordeling Outburst, Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder, Young Pyromancer.

I know that once you get the staples out of the way there isn't much room for imagination to start testing some shakier cards out, but hey, Tiny Leaders is tiny.

Cabal Therapy and Thoughtseize are really good but you need the card space to focus on your strategy. I would replace one of them with a creature destroyer like Doom Blade and the other with something to help you get you key cards like a Demonic Tutor.

And replace Tragic Slip with something more constant (like Doom Blade).

I'll test Tragic Slip.

Ok. First of all you don't need the Gempalm Polluter if you go for masses because the masses alone will kill your opponent. Instead of him I would run 4 Demonic Tutors so you can fetch your Gisa.

Death Baron is good but you don't need it in here since you don't go for class and only for mass. Focus on one thing. Lord of the Undead on the other hand is good since he can get you creatures back you need. The problem is that he can't give you back Ghoulcaller Gisa so I would drop him too.

Instead I would put in Exhume or Reanimate.

Then you need card draw to keep the deck running. I would suggest Phyrexian Arena or Sign in Blood. More the first then the second. Necropotence would be even better but is really something you should be able to play with or it will kill you. If you feel confident try it out.

Shizo, Death's Storehouse is a cool card but has no use in here. It only slows down your mana if it is out together with Cabal Coffers. The same goes for Urborg.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is good. I would use 2 of them to highten the chance to get it together with Cabal Coffers. And use at least 3 Cabal Coffers. It fastens you up a lot.

Volrath's Stronghold is good too. Play 2 of it so you have at least the chance to draw it. 1-timers are mostly bad in a deck unless you already have a 4-timer in your deck with a similiar ability and you want more of it.

Tragic Slip is good in a deck focusing on sacrifice but since you mainly focus on one specific sacirifice effect I would replace it with Go for the Throat, Hero's Demise, or Doomblade for more consistency and a sure kill.

Fallen Ideal is a good idea but getting out a Carrion Feeder costs less and is even better. If you focus more on getting him and Ghoulcaller Gisa out with tutors and card draw it may be better since you can store it for later turns. But I would test the deck at first with it in. If you find it to be increasing your chances to make Ghoulcaller Gisa go big keep it. If not replace it.

And with your huge mana production think about Thornbite Staff. Equipping it on Ghoulcaller Gisa gives you unlimited token production.

I hope this helped. Greets MA.

I can't speak to the Modern build, but in Standard it's greatest strength was the use of Tragic Slip for cheap, efficient removal. This combined with Lingering Souls and Liliana of the Veil made it very hard for anything to get to your life total before you could start swinging with Falkenrath Aristocrat, which is very tough to kill. The whole while they were losing life, even just a little at a time, from Blood Artist (who also warded of wraths).

stormkirk captainServant of TymaretSaberclaw GolemSpawn of Rix MaadiKragma WarcallerNecropolis FiendBosh are the creatures I would take out the rest seem at least interesting to play with especially Organ Grinder is at least worth some testing.

Take out all the enchantments you have because they are either way too slow or do way too little to be worth a slot.

Liquimetal CoatingProfane MementoStaff of the Flame MagusTablet of the Guilds liquimetal coating is meant for more specific decks like sydri or glissa not these colors. The rest I say take out is because lifegain on its own just stalls the game it doesnt deal with your opponents just dulls it, also you are playing a aggro commander those slots are wasted on subpar cards.

Mind Rot Grim Discovery Morgue Burst Soul FeastVolcanic Hammer Heat Ray Trumpet Blast Shatter Unmake the Graves these cards are either subpar or meant for another format small things dont work well in commander.

Also take out tibalt he is the worst card imaginable.

Now after taking your deck a part lets put it back together with relatively cheap in cost cards but cards that will help you significantly none the less.

ob nixillis of the black oath Murderous Cut Murder Innocent Blood Tragic Slip Sol Ring Rune-Scarred DemonHarvester of Souls Palace Siege Terminate HellriderBloodgift Demon Whip of Erebos VandalblastBlasphemous Act Anger Flametongue Kavu Dreadbore these cards are all ranging from .70 to 4 dollars at most for each. Anyways best of luck on the deck.
