And I'm glad to help!

A basic single-target removal package might include some combination of Hero's Downfall, Feed the Swarm, Bone Shards, Rapid Hybridization, Never / Return, and/or Ravenform.

Good looking deck so far nice job! some possible addition you can consider is The Chain Veil, since you have a decent amount of planeswalkers. It is on the pricey side, around 10$-15$ but decent for the amount of planeswalkers you have. In terms of demons Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire really good for his "Tutor" ability for about 3$ you can use his power to find any card you want and put it on the top of your library. Some good draw engines you can use that are cheap, is Altar's Reap 2 drop for only 0.15, Read the Bones, and Night's Whisper. Finally is some good removal Feed the Swarm, and Go for the Throat. I hope these help, or at least gives you some ideas.

I was totally unaware of Strike it Rich until now, so I'll be considering that card moving forward!

In short, paying 4 mana to Bag of Holding was too steep. Shadow of the Grave was too conditional because it was often drawn into from a creatureless hand.

Cards like Shadow of the Grave and Bag of Holding increase the consistency of the deck, but also require precious mana. Right now the stats for the current build are as follows:

Turn 3 Combo: 47%

Turn 4 Combo: 30%

Turn 5+ Combo: 23%

The sample size is 46 Games so far.

I suspect that adding those cards should reduce the number of games above 5+ turns that end up being complete misses. Although, I found that when I was drawing into those cards, I was not very happy to see them. The build you see above is a result of influence from my personal playgroup, so it may not be optimized. Running cheap interaction in the slots previously taken by Street Wraith, Bag of Holding, and Shadow of the Grave are now filled by cards like Feed the Swarm, Imp's Mischief, and Vandalblast. Cheap graveyard hosers were pretty common to see after a few games of running the build.

I hope that makes sense. Optimally an Imperial Seal would be in the decklist, but I'd rather keep my kidneys, thank you.

Misconception Thanks for the comment!

You are absolutely right about Commander's Sphere. I have trouble thinking about that when I'm only in two colors. I'll make that swap ASAP.

Lavaz is good, but I removed it at some point to fit something else in (though I don't remember what it was). Honestly, I like Dimir Doppelganger better. And I have a solid balance of grave robbing already. I may replace Wrexial, the Risen Deep with him at some point, because I don't usually get a lot of value out of Wrexial.

I hadn't heard of Sepulchral Primordial until just now, so I'll give that guy some consideration. The CMC is a bit steep, and I don't have a ton of ramp, which is by design.

Frankly, I've been thinking about removing Teferi's Tutelage altogether. It tends to sit in my hand. So if I do, I don't think I'd replace it with a similar effect.

Removal of any kind is always good, so if I do cut the Tutelage, perhaps Feed the Swarm could be what I could add.

Cheers!

Great Anowon deck!

What do you think of running Psychic Corrosion instead of Teferi's Tutelage for a symmetrical effect?

Commander's Sphere is strictly better than Dimir Cluestone since you don't need to invest more Mana to sac it and draw. You can even sac it to draw after you tapped it for Mana!

Also, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is an amazing "graverobber", especially since you can change his form again and again, whenever anyone mills a creature.

What are your thoughts on Sepulchral Primordial?

Maybe you can make some space for Feed the Swarm for that sweet enchantment removal in Dimir, altough only at sorcery speed.
