I've been really enjoying this deck too! This is my list here. I will say I'm not a big fan of the gilded goose as you have such a flat mana curve that dorks just increase your chances of flooding out.

Have you considered the draining plan? I see Vito in the mainboard, but Dina, Soul Steeper is a little better IMO.

8cardalchemy on Help me Build a Basic …

Hi All,

I want to build an Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper // Tymna the Weaver life gain commander deck. It will be used for semi-casual play at a LGS, so good players with decent decks but not a lot of bonkers combos going off by turn 5.

I have never been amazing a cooking up commander decks that actually function, especially on a budget. Can anyone help me put together a basic/affordable decklist that I can expand on with more expensive cards later (let's say sub $200, preferably closer to $100, price is a little flexible)?

So far, I have the following cards that I know will work here:

Deathrite Shaman Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose Swords to Plowshares Dina, Soul Steeper Voice of the Blessed Kambal, Consul of Allocation Willowdusk, Essence Seer Vampire Nighthawk Drana and Linvala Rodolf Duskbringer Rampant Growth Farseek

I also own both commanders, so that's $30 I don't need to worry about.

Any help is appreciated.

Grim Feast is a triggered ability, so it has to go on the stack and wait to resolve. Dina, Soul Steeper will not be on the battlefield to trigger by the time you gain the life.

Similarly, I have Dina, Soul Steeper, Grim Feast and Exquisite Blood in play, and someone destroys Dina... would the triggers go infinite and kill my opponents, or will Dina go to the grave and only trigger once for each dying creature?

I have Grim Feast and Dina, Soul Steeper in play and someone casts a creature wipe, destroying all creatures... Grim Feast doesn't say "dies", but states specifically that a creature has to go to the graveyard, so will Dina see the life gain from Grim Feast and deal out life loss? Or will she be gone by the time Grim Feast triggers? Thanks in advance!

Pact weapon would go pretty well with Greven, Predator Captain.

For all of them, maybe Dina, Soul Steeper? Golgari lifegain so you can offset the life costs, and a built in sac outlet for Junji.

There's also Lathril, Blade of the Elves who is a classic, built in evasion and makes lots of tokens you can equip.

Zaxara, the Exemplary makes pre-modified creatures

Finally, another card you might like here is Unspeakable Symbol

I enjoy using Dina, Soul Steeper. However she is so week that my play group just attacked her before I can really use her ability. Is there a card or a way to protect her from being targeted by my opponents creatures so I can utilize her ability better?

     Very cool build! I love a lot of your card choices like Gruesome Fate & Dina, Soul Steeper. =D

     Nothing too crazy, but a few suggestions! You could cut Eliminate in favour of Abrupt Decay. In that same vein, you've got a lot of creature removal but not as many ways to deal with other permanent types, so I think Acidic Slime would be a better fit than Shriekmaw. I also wonder if Tragic Slip over Eaten Alive might be a good change - even though it doesn't hit Planeswalkers at least it's Instant-speed and only one mana to cast, and still removes Indestructible creatures.

     Cards that I think would be great additions but I'm not sure what the best cuts would be for your playstyle: Birthing Pod, Bastion of Remembrance, Throne of the God-Pharaoh & Pact of the Serpent.

     Only other suggestion is maybe find room for a few more lands. You're not playing that much card draw, so you may find it tough to hit your land drops consistently through turn 5/6.

     Again, love the build! +1 =)
