Nice deck. A bit heavy on creatures? You need a few more Dimir tricks.

Ideas Unbound, Windfall and/or Dark Deal big card draw

Deep Analysis little card draw

Increasing Ambition big tutor

Mystical Teachings little tutor

Dark Withering great removal

Circular Logic great counterspell

Forbid and/or Demonic Collusion forever

Null Brooch > Negate

I started playing in Odyssey (Apocalypse block, right?) in High School - Roar of the Wurm, Pernicious Deed, Deep Analysis, Wild Mongrel, Spiritmonger - all those cards are forever etched into my mind. I remember when standard was called type 2. I also now remember being distinctly upset that I got a foil Polluted Delta instead of a really sweet creature while cracking packs...and I swiftly traded that bad boy away LOL. Hindsight, am I right? There any trades you deeply regret?

Hey Balaam__ thanks for stopping by!

I'll keep your suggestions in mind. When constructing this deck I counted Lorien Revealed as a mana source, so I saw this deck as having 18 sources of . I counted it as a for two main reasons: 1) for the island cycling, but also because 2) it adds to the sorcery count and reduces the casting cost for my creatures early on. I think 18 blue sources is a reasonable number to expect to play by turn 2/3, but if I have a string of games where this is not the case I will have to reevaluate. So far it has not been a huge issue in my games.

I will concede the Desert is very much match dependent, but in the games they were relevant I was happy to draw them. My initial impression of a decklist like this was it could be susceptible to go wide decks, or those with fliers, and I don't know of a lot of ways to deal with those in monoblue once the spells resolve (I could Snap then Counterspell but that seems like a lot of resources to spend and not guaranteed removal). In matchups against decks with bulkier creatures, they can be more awkward, but typically by that time I had the for Counterspell or use Snap for a bigger tempo play.

I agree Foil is probably the most awkward card at the moment. I have cycled Lorien Revealed to grab an Island to pitch to Foil, but usually I just don't want to use 3 cards to answer 1 threat unless I'm dumping a flashback card like Deep Analysis. If I were to cut something/move it around, I would probably start there.

Thanks again for your suggestions, and I hope you have a pleasant rest of your day!

Do you mind swapping Deep Analysis for Lim-Dul's Vault or Valakut Awakening  Flip. I find Deep Analysis is rather expensive for its draw effect.

Hey there!

I'm a newbie so I apologize in advance if it's a silly question...

Do you think this deck could benefit from splashing Blue? Nightsky Mimic could be replaced with Esper Stormblade for a more consistently powered up creature, and you could add Consider or Brainstorm or even Deep Analysis for card draw. And something like a Spell Pierce can be more proactive than an Unmake.

Then again, maybe I just am not so good at building decks lol

Deep Analysis might be a nice card to keep the engine burning after a bunch of self mill
