Whispering Snitch Discussion

Chainer_the_Dementia_Master on Dimir Surveil (1st attempt)

Dimir Spybug belongs in the main deck. Easily one of the best payoffs for a "Turbo Surveil" style deck. Personally, I'd replace both the Whispering Snitches and the Whisper Agents with them. In testing this strategy myself I found both of them very underwhelming. Haven't tried out House Guildmage, but could see how it would be good, especially if you're in a position where you can't attack every turn. I've also been using Nightveil Sprite as an additional enabler as well.

I wouldn't play Disdainful Stroke on the main, maybe side. Maybe some cheap removal instead like Cast Down. Also i would play one less Doom Whisperer and would cut Connive / Concoct and put Thief of Sanity into main. And i wouldn't play the guildgate. You already have 8 Doublelands, so fill up with basics. Then I would play 23-24 lands, maybe 2 copies of Field of Ruin to deal with Azcanta or some other deadly Lands. With that many Surveil you can easily filter. That brings me to Search for Azcanta  Flip. Another Opportunity to put Creeping Chill into grave.House Guildmage for more surveil and fieldcontrol.

Duress has to be in the sideboard against other control/mirror matches. Negate is another valuable sidecard. Whispering Snitch is a card you want in the main, if not cut it from side, as you have to surveil for damage. Selective Snare against some tokens, as Emmara can be cruel.

I mean, I have this deck in paper form, and it's functioning really well at local events. And Whispering Snitch is better than it looks; draining for 1 almost every turn is actually really powerful, and it basically makes the first Doom Whisperer activations each turn free.

I was also using Whispering Snitch in the prerelease, solid card. lubertjey, it's due to Guilds of Ravnica not being officially in rotation until this Friday despite the prerelease this past weekend. Then Tapped Out will update accordingly.

i would run 3 Ritual of Soot in sideboard instead of the Whispering Snitch for those aggro decks, also more removal like Vraska's Contempt in the sideboard for teferi and other walkers

That's not a combo. That's once per turn. Read Whispering Snitch. I mean it's still not bad but like... totally not a combo.

My last suggestion is a fun combo I came up with and it involves Whispering Snitch i took out I took out a Doom whisperer and 2 Essence Scatters for this, so its mid to late game and you have a doom whisperer an enhanced surveillance, and a whispering Snitch out. you pay two life too surveil which gains you a life and makes your opponent lose one, surveil 4, then put them back on top or in the grave. Then do it again and again till you drain your opponent out, if u get low on cards just sack the enhanced surveillance.

I think Nightveil Predator may have it's place here, depends on the meta.

Creeping Chill and Whispering Snitch work well with Surveil.

I'd also play at least 3 of Doom Whisperer, it's just so good... Beats a Lyra and has a strong activated ability that can be used directly.

If you want to play more with your graveyard I'd add cards like Necrotic Wound and Stitcher's Supplier

I'm not sure Dimir Spybug will be good enough, especially if you are on the draw against a mono red deck with Goblin Chainwhirler, same goes for Blood Operative.
