Murphy77 on Dimir Milling Rogues

First glance - without playing the deck, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling and Zareth San, the Trickster are great for the long-game but the rest of the deck might not survive into the long game. There is a benefit to playing low cmc cards. Many can be returned and re-played using Lurrus of the Dream-Den . You can sac a 1-drop with Mutual Destruction to kill a big creature, return it to your hand with Blood Beckoning and re-play the original card - all for 3 mana. The advantage of having Slitherwisp in the deck is that you can cast Omen of the Dead , So Tiny , Starlit Mantle , Minion's Return , and others and get life gain/drain, then recast them from the grave with the effect of Lurrus. Sorry, but cards like Lullmage's Domination really do nothing for me - they are just too expensive to cast and clumsy.

If you are playing Lurrus of the Dream-Den purely as a Companion, he starts the game outside of your core deck and you can cast him at any time. This would actually work well with this deck, but I would want something like Keep Safe available to protect Lurrus.

Then comes the mill cards that you can keep recasting from the grave with Lurrus: Merfolk Secretkeeper (for Venture Deeper), Maddening Cacophony (instant mega-mill), Sweet Oblivion (more instant mill) and Ruin Crab (Landfall mill).

Thieves' Guild Enforcer works well with the theme. Then comes your supporting cards. Essence Scatter is, to me a good side-board card for 2 reasons: firstly trying to keep a balance between colors in the deck, and secondly if your mill is fast enough you may not need it against anything but control decks. Archfiend's Vessel will be suggested by all in sundry, but also detracts from your mill theme (you won't win games with creature damage). I like Heartless Act but you might also want Blood Beckoning or Omen of the Dead to support Lurrus and bring your Thieves' Guild Enforcer and/or Ruin Crab back from the dead (could also work on Merfolk Secretkeeper). The final non-land card in the deck (assuming 4 of each card) is less easy. I personally like to use Mind Carver in any deck with , but Village Rites or another creature kill card will be just as good. There - I think that I have made enough suggestions to also get a side-board going.

As far as lands go, I would keep things as simple as possible. Fabled Passage and Evolving Wilds let you search for the color land you need and also give a double landfall for Ruin Crab a dual colored land that enters tapped may just slow you down a bit. I would stick with 7 Swamp and 9 Island.

multimedia on Zagras and the Dethtouch Party

1 year ago

Hey, you're welcome.

There's 12 rogues here for the party, but only 5 clerics, 4 Warriors and 1 Wizard. These ratios of party members will make it difficult to have much mana cost reduction for Zagras especially Wizards. My advice is make these numbers more even to give you more chances to have different party members on the battlefield at once. Changeling Outcast is a budget one drop party member who can be any creature type you choose for party and it's unblockable which has good interaction with several tribal combat damage effects.

Budget Wizards to consider adding:

There's some party members who could be upgraded to better budget creatures especially the Warriors:

Blood Beckoning could be upgraded to Nullpriest of Oblivion who is a two drop Cleric or if you cast with kicker you can reanimate any creature in your graveyard. Beckoning doesn't reanimate it recurs the creature/creatures to your hand which is a big difference. Searing Barrage could be upgraded to any Wizard party member because this removal spell is not needed as it's the least good and costs the most mana for what it does.


Some cards to consider cutting:

Pump spells that only pump one creature one time such as Infuriate are subpar in Commander especially when you can only cast them once. If the spell pumped all creatures you control, protected the creature from removal or it made the creature have huge power with evasion then that's different, but the pump spells here don't do that. More draw is more impactful than pump.
