I like the deck! You might consider adding Duskmantle Guildmage for an infinite combo with Mindcrank.

Also, Dismal Backwater does the exact same thing as Dimir Guildgate, except Dimir Guildgate does not get you that 1 life. Dismal Backwater is cheaper (although only by 3 cents) anyways.

Deathcult Rogue might work well with Trepanation Blade too.

I like it quite a bit, definitely gets a +1 from me!

Daedalus19876 I appreciate the fact that you're putting in this much thought into Trepanation Blade, but after some testing, I've come to the same conclusion that it's too inconsistent and sometimes outright unreliable in certain match-ups where the opposing list has an increased land count.

I've moved on to the card draw issue, since the overall consistency of my deck seems to be sub-par in that it can't respond well enough in my meta to control decks and can't outpace the higher tier lists that are simply faster and have numerous response mechanisms built in.

RESPONSE TIME! :)

feyn_do_alduin: You know what? Let's compromise. I'm currently building a super-budget $25 version of this deck (with more focus on extra combat steps). Trepanation Blade will be amazing in there :) But I still think it's too narrow in this deck, alas.

KaraZorEl: I find that I have enough self-sacrificing creatures already, and I don't have enough white cards in my hand to generally make Martyr of Sands worth it. Thanks for the comment though! :) She's one of my favorite cards.

Enral: Given that I usually play multiple games against the same person, being in the sideboard is good enough :) It's an amazing card in the right matchup, though!

Cantu.josh47 and Stanimal1821: I see you've already had your questions answered :) Thanks for the comments!

Trepanation Blade, could be a LOT, having them mill (potentially) 5 cards each when attacking with that Jace's Phantasm turning both 6/6's into 2 10/10 Flying Game-Winning Jewels

I ended up casting Seize the Day and Waves of Aggression in the same turn and the triple Trepanation Blade trigger ended up doing exactly 40 damage with Kami of False Hope lmao

feyn_do_alduin: I appreciate the suggestion, but I really have no desire to win via mill here. Not only is it a very difficult win-condition to achieve (in a 100-card format) without dedicating the whole deck to it, but it also gives too many resources to any deck with significant recursion (which is most of them).

Neither Trepanation Blade nor Sword of Body and Mind give significant enough advantage to warrant their inclusion in the deck. They are too inconsistent and mana-intensive to include.
