ZendikariWol, I don't see the Patient Rebuilding as often as I'd like. You're probably 100% correct that additional Discovery / Dispersal is better. Doing that, what do you think of making 4 of the Islands Drowned Catacomb or Watery Grave just so I can utilize the dispersal as more board control should I need it?

Last_Laugh on Marchesa's Vampire

Fun take on Marchesa.

I do however think you need more ways to lose life like City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Shivan Reef, and other painlands. Watery Grave and Steam Vents as well. I'd also make room for both Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence. Fellwar Stone is another good 2 cmc rock.

Run a few more boardwipes like Last One Standing, Cyclonic Rift, and Jokulhaups instead of so much targeted removal.

Also, get Chaos Warp in here. It's one of your only ways to interact with enchantments and by far the best. 100% needed.

Legion Loyalist isn't a vampire but I think first strike + trample for your team relatively out of nowhere seems good. That and he has haste and gets a +1+1 counter when he attacks so he sticks around. I'd also run Shared Animosity.

For cuts, I'd drop most of your targeted removal like Murder, Terminate, and Go for the Throat. I'd drop all your 3 cmc mana rocks for 2 drops as this helps with a T3 Marchesa. I'd also drop your 1 time draw spells like Sign in Blood and Tormenting Voice.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not tribal but it should still help. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Marchizzle my Nizzle

Kaneki___Ken on Dimir Aristocrats Commander?

1 week ago

Hey all.

I'm going for a aristocrats edh deck that has some control elements to it. I want it to be in dimir colors considering I just got a Polluted Delta and Watery Grave.

I was looking at both Vela the Night-Clad and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, one being a sac outlet and one being a draining piece.

I'm in a casual/competitive meta, with decks like Krenko, Mob Boss and Lord Windgrace, at around 75% and would love to get some advice.

Hi there, I'm from the advertise your commander thread.

I used to have a Nin, the Pain Artist deck based on stealing and copying your opponents stuff. I always liked to win using your opponents cards, so its nice to see a deck with a similar theme.

I think your current build has a lot of room for optimization as there are many cards that have strictly or subjectively better counterparts. These are some suggestions for cards I would replace and what with:

I would probably drop the flicker subtheme you currently have because you dont run a lot of creatures and go down a few lands (37 should be fine) in favor of more draw (Rhystic Study & Mystic Remora are nice). Also, one of the good things about black is the access to tutors. By adding tutors you increase the consistency of your deck, as they effectively serve as an extra copy of all the other cards in your deck. Lim-Dul's Vault, Beseech the Queen and Dark Petition are some good relatively cheap ones. (If you want to invest a bit of money in it, Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are great.)

I hope this helps and good luck with deckbuilding!

PS. Dont forget to comment on the previously posted deck in the 'advertise your commander deck' thread. ;)

Nice deck thetonyage!!

As suggestions, you may cut the 2 Thought Erasure and 1 Vendilion Clique to add 1 Tarmogoyf and 2 Thoughtseize. Also, you can move the 2 Countersquall to the sideboard instead of the 2 Spell Pierce, and add other Liliana of the Veil and other Assassin's Trophy. In the sideboard, you may cut the 2 Architects of Will and 1 Unmoored Ego to add 3 Leyline of the Void; and cut 1 Abrupt Decay to add 1 Maelstrom Pulse.

In the mana base you're playing too many shocklands, and you may cut 2 Breeding Pool, 2 Watery Grave, and 2 Overgrown Tomb to add 2 Blooming Marsh, 3 Darkslick Shores and 1 Botanical Sanctum; because is important to have black mana on the Turn-1 to cast Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize, or blue mana on the Turn-1 to cast Delver of Secrets  Flip.

I hope these suggestions have helped you, and I like you idea to add Delver of Secrets  Flip to Sultai.

KaladeshKat on Surveil Bugger (budget)

For lands: Pretty simple. 8x Island, 8x swamp, 4x Drowned Catacomb, 4x Watery Grave. We have pretty much the best mana you will get in standard right now with all of the checklands and all of the shocklands. no excuse to have things come in tapped.

You want to have: 4x spybug, 4x thoughtbound phantasm, 4x nightveil sprite, then Doom Whisperer and Dream Eater. Doom whisperer is a 6/6 flyer with trample for 5, and he also surveils for free whenever you want. dream eater is instant speed, which makes up for his lack of stats.

Your sorcerys look pretty good.

I would knock off all of the creatures no mentioned above for maybe 2x Sinister Sabotage and perhaps some removal and call it good.

Kjartan on Shapeshifter Surveil Deck

Cutting you deck down to 60 cards would be a huge improvement. You have a lot of underpowered cards, so cutting your deck down to minimum size would make you get to your best cards more consitantly.

Rescue could go. With this few (good) etb triggers, it's not going to be that impactful, and you don't want to bounce your artifacts. (Or it could just become an Unsummon if you got one)

Ceremonious Rejection Seems very specific, but you do surveil a lot, and the card is pretty good, so it may be fine, but I'm not loving it. (Or is it a meta thing?)

Realmwright doesn't seem too useful. I guess it can help you cast Dread Shade, but that's pretty niche.

Amulet of Safekeeping also seems a tad too specific to be good, unless it's a meta thing, (but again, surveil help you get rid of it easily).

Wand of Vertebrae Is probably too RNG to be any good.


With the boosters you've opened, I'm willing to bet you've got some Dimir Guildgates or even Watery Graves, and a couple fixers would be a great addition to the mana base.

Also, I'm sure you've got some Discovery / Dispersal, which is one of the greatest survel cards.
