Consider adding Trepanation Blade its insanely good with Bloodchief Ascension

Looks like you're trying to keep this budget!

Adaptive Automaton is fairly cheap, I'd consider running it for more anthems.

I would cut Trepanation Blade and put in Quietus Spike, it's a 2ish buck difference?

Argentum Armor is too costly unless you stoneforge/stonehewer it or quest it, and replace it with Golem-Skin Gauntlets or something.

Unfortunately, the cats are 2/2's, but I'd still run Skullclamp because of how god-awful mono-white card advantage is.

I'm also not 100% sure how useful quest is here. How much have you playtested this? :)

Duskmantle Guildmage? Turns your Glimpse the Unthinkable into a 5CMC 10 point fireball.Trepanation Blade This card does work, and beefs the creature it's on big time.

Mindcrank and/or Crumbling Sanctuary would be handy if you're trying to use Nekusar to mill, since they'll also then have to mill a card whenever they draw. You might also consider spells like Fork, Reverberate, Dual Casting or Twincast for the mill spells you're already running. Nephalia Drownyard is another reusable mill option to throw extra mana into once the game gets going, and I'd recommend a Trepanation Blade for your attackers.

manchini22 on Team games

Ok, so i was playing a team game last night with some friends and i have a few questions on the rules of it. 1st is when you are sharing a life total do cards like (player discards top of deck until XXX is found) apply to one of the teammates or does it apply to both? I used a Trepanation Blade attacking, and we ruled it that game as whoever was attacking can pick the player to discard. 2nd when you cast an enchantment can you pass it to your teammate? Not an aura card but basic enchantment, also does that enchantment work for the person who cast that card or does it work for both players on the same team? Ex. one of my opponents cast Frontier Siege and was going to pass it to his teammate for one of the effects.

Thanks so much,manchini22

  • Trocar Dimir Cluestone -> Commander's Sphere, me parece estritamente melhor e e baratinho.
  • Adicionar Reliquary Tower, meio padrao em commander.
  • Adicionar Trepanation Blade, permite commander damage kills, e ainda alimenta o cemiterio para aumentar a chance de roubar algo.
  • Nao sou muito fa de Stolen Identity, mesmo no meu deck de copy/steal eu nao uso porque acho muita mana para uma sorcery.
  • Adicionar uns spot removal e importante por conta do Prossh e outros decks ultra aggro.

Looking good. I'll try to mention a few budget cards to help you out.

For evasion, Whispersilk Cloak and Trailblazer's Boots, Aqueous Form are reliable methods.

As for killing, Trepanation Blade, Fireshrieker, Bonehoard, Runechanter's Pike, and Inquisitor's Flail

With combat tricks, Tainted Strike is good for one kill when Lazav has 10+ power.

For better ramp, look at Dimir Signet, Tainted Isle, etc.
