Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor

Legendary Creature — Phyrexian Praetor

Whenever a creature deals combat damage to one of your opponents, its controller may pay 1 life. If they do, they draw a card.

, Discard X cards: Exile the top X cards of target opponent's library. You may play lands and cast spells from among cards exiled this way without paying their mana costs.

My build is not as focused on tokens, but I think Lagomos, Hand of Hatred is an upgrade over a couple of your other producers, his tokens are more reliable to hit than some of the 1/1 tokens. Elturel Survivors similarly is probably better than your other myriad creatures. Genasi Enforcers also is a solid turn 2 play before Goro, you're much more likely to hit with those tokens on turn 3 than with the Banshee's on turn 6. I like your Reconnaissance mission, and in my experience having multiple of those effects is worth the slots especially for your token build where you have an engine often before goro-goro is cast. You won't regret any number of Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor, Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar, Coastal Piracy, Bident of Thassa, or the new card The Indomitable. I think Decadent Dragon isn't a great fit, I noticed it on the recent edhrec suggestions for not much reason ;)

From a quick review of the creature's either one of Rat Colony or Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor, Gix's second ability may be good in the late game but in the early game it can be ruinous for me considering the opponent would still have all or most of his or her health and could use it to his or her advantage to find their cheap game-winning combo(s) (if they have one).

Is Opposition Agent better than Aven Mindcensor? (aven is more evasive tho)

depends on what you want, Aven is a better beater but, Agent is card advantage.

Make a cut for Teferi's Ageless Insight (I cut Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. Archfiend of Ifnir is a good one sided wipe in this deck)

Serra Paragon<Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Norn helps the go wide

More 1 drop creature and more legendary creature suggestions are welcome. (legendary creatures take advantage of Gold-Forged Thopteryx etc).

Iron Apprentice, Krydle of Baldur's Gate, Benthic Biomancer, Cosi's Trickster, Judge's Familiar

Less counter spells required due to many protection spells in deck.

Glen Elendra Archmage w/connive you can keep her online

Consider Rhystic Study (slows my creature attack strat. But op... Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor in its place for now)

Rhystic Study gains table aggro, Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor gets your opponents to look at each other

Weak to oppo swing back. Solutions include war tax effects and vigilance.

Huge update! Included 8 extra legendary creatures and a total of 16 extra legendary permanents. Thanks a lot again for your help awesomedude20 you've inspired me a lot. Now let's hope the mailman arrives soon so I can test this Dihada 2.0!

Dangerwillrobinson79 apologies for the late reply. It must have been one or more episodes from either The Command Zone or EDHRecast because I actually follow only those two. It's a topic that pops up every now and then in several episodes. Bottom line is to just add more instants and creatures with activitated abilities to be more part of the game during other players' turn. For example, replace a basic Swamp for a Castle Locthwain. To have the castle enter untapped shouldn't be too hard and if ever you don't have to spend all your mana it could draw you a card. Simple example, but big benefit.

Funny is that with this huge update of the deck I've removed several instants and replaced it for other cardtypes. For example Generous Gift was cut for Loran of the Third Path and Swords to Plowshares had to make room for Drakuseth, Maw of Flames. So I guess I still need lessons in adding more instants -.-'

I've also checked your Di-Had-a'nuf deck and I like how it's really quite a different take on her but awesome nevertheless! I especially like your Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor and Vial Smasher the Fierce. Those might find their way into my Dihada aswell one day! Thank you

For Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor, I would suggest cutting Profane Tutor. The mass card draw can offset the loss of a tutor, and Profane Tutor is a touch slow.

Have you had a chance to play the deck irl, or play-test it much? 28 lands and 19 creatures seem kinda low, even with all the mana rocks. If it works well for you, then no worries. In regards to draw options for Isshin, I'd recommend some of the following:

  • Skullclamp is great, especially with any 1/1 tokens you may produce.

  • Plumb the Forbidden is a personal favorite, especially in response to board wipes or creature theft. This is one of my favorite draw spells in my Isshin deck, especially with a board of tokens.

  • Braids, Arisen Nightmare can force opponents into tough spots, depending on what you sacrifice. The fact that Braids is a "may" ability allows for scaling as needed.

  • Tocasia's Welcome & Idol of Oblivion are options for more (creature) token focused builds.

  • Breena, the Demagogue & Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant are both fun and interactive options. Breena especially can add a fun political wrinkle to games, as opponents may let her stick around until its too late.

  • Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor is another "political" draw engine that incentivizes attacks around the board.

  • Professional Face-Breaker & Tymna the Weaver are both options that reward you for going wide and connecting. I like Face-Breaker just a little more since she has built-in evasion.

  • Deadly Dispute and Painful Truths are additional options.

  • Lastly, Scapegoat, Dolmen Gate, and Reconnaissance are additional mana efficient board protection effects. I can't recommend Reconnaissance enough, as it acts as a pseudo-Vigilance anthem, and can remove your creatures from combat after they've already dealt damage. A bit more of an explanation here.

I hope these suggestions are helpful. Best of luck in your brewing and playing.
