In the distance, stoned laughter rings out...
do I... do I dare...
Win Condition is my boi Chimney Imp

Hi! +1!

Have you considered: Bog Witch, Cryptbreaker, Dark Confidant, Gate to Phyrexia, Weaponcraft Enthusiast?

And I would recommend to use Bitterblossom for all the stax and mana dinial spells and as a sac fodder generator.

Most definitely my dude! This is but the latest attempt at a competitive Shirei deck. Please give it a playtest for me!

The actual winning combos are infinite sac loops:

Nether Traitor + Genesis Chamber / Pawn of Ulamog + Phyrexian Altar


Living Death + Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed + Phyrexian Altar + Some dudes in the gravey (maybe a Blood Artist?)

throw in your Myr Friends, Ashnod's Altar, Dross Scorpion, Thousand-Year Elixir, and you got a lot of options

Can also just drown people in stax, and use the Aetherworks Marvel (and my boi Dross Scorpion) to cough forth horrible abominations (Chimney Imp + Possessed Portal is like the hottest thing to me)

Sure man! I will gladly test the deck in the near future, and I'll tell you about the results. Chimney Imp + Possessed Portal + Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker is so rude and mean :D!

+1 from me. A hilarious idea for a deck. I would definitely take this to a slightly less competitive gathering. Sorry my meta is super jank.

Make no mistake, the central joke of this deck (and each of my Shirei deck iterations, really) is that all of these cards are pretty competitive, and the strategy is competitive, but the commander is paradoxically underpowered and unsuited as the centerpiece of the deck.

Nether Traitor all you want, but Shirei will only ever be middling.
