Cloak and Dagger Discussion

I comment while keeping in mind a low budget.
Cut 3 mana ramp when possible:
- Dimir Keyrune -> Talisman of Dominance
- Commander's Sphere -> Arcane Signet
- Dimir Locket -> Star Compass / Springleaf Drum / Paradise Mantle
Cards I'd cut: - 2 lands. 36 is enough if you smooth the curve a bit. - In Garruk's Wake -> Decree of Pain ? Maybe, idk, it depends. But you get more chances to use it, trust me I know something of dimir ramp myself. - Oona, Queen of the Fae -> Be careful. X costs are tough to pay for in dimir and more often than not, paying 5-10 mana to get 2 1/1 farie rogues isn't worth, it wastes your turn. Recall: lands are colorless and most decks you'll face are multi-colored. Oona isn't evena rogue in the first place, so no advantage to attack with her. - Obelisk of Urd -> Not so strong. It buffs all your rogues, but at the cost of using your whole mana pool, or to keep your rogues from attacking. Kinda wastes your turn, and you wanna be fast.

Hero's Blad would work. There are multiple cards with a similar trigger:
With a Maskwood Nexus , Multani could trigger any of these.

Cloak and Dagger is one really cool card in that vein. Here's a land:
Bane Alley enters the battlefield tapped.
: Add or
, , Pay 3 life: Rogues you control gain hexproof and unblockable until end of turn.
I'd like to see another uncommon, tribal/mechanic-oriented Ravnica place.

Have you considered Invisible Stalker? It's got protection built in and it is also unblockable. Triton Shorestalker can also be pretty good additional copies of Slither Blade if you want to double up. Looter il-Kor is practically unblockable and also provides some card filtering. If you do go this route you could also add in Cloak and Dagger because it auto equips. Also, not sure if Paranoid Delusions quite fits this deck, since it appears you could probably win through damage so much faster than milling. Not counting Trepanation Blade since it does both damage and mill. Hope this helps.

Honestly, I've been thinking about dropping the Sorin altogether. If I haven't killed all of your creatures by the time I get him to ult, I'm doing something wrong and it's likely too late.
Ditto with Scythe of the Wretched it was an awesome idea, but very mana intensive if I want to steal more than one creature in a turn.
Sanguinary Mage fits the Party and Vampire Tribal themes, which is 2 out of 3 themes for the deck, and also is low CMC. So she stays. Prowess doesn't help much with her, but is certainly an added bonus.
Cloak and Dagger is an insta shield for my commander. No brainer.
Goblin Chainwhirler is a tricky one to cut. I have had it go off in a game. It's a powerhouse. And while Dagger Caster does the same thing for fewer reds and is a rogue, we're talking about 99 cards and only two tutors.
So I think what I'll do for now is cut Sorin and the Scythe for the Arena and the Champion, and see how it goes.
A couple unrelated notes in closing. First, you inspired me to work Door of Destinies into Always Loot the Bodies. Second, what do you say to replacing Kumano, Master Yamabushi with Vampiric Dragon? Much higher CMC, but is a vampire. Could just try it and see, but might as well ask while I have you.
