Goldvein Pick

Artifact — Equipment

Equipped creature gets +1/+1.

Whenever equipped creature deals combat damage to a player, create a Treasure token. (It's a colourless artifact with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any colour.")

Equip (: Attach this to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery. This enters the battlefield unattached and stays on the battlefield if the creature this card is attached to leaves the battlefield.)

I have a Quest for Ula's Temple deck which does some similar things, I liked Dreamscape Artist because it can reshuffle your library as needed, incase you don't have a relevant creature to work with on top. It's technically only 1 mana and a card to Harrow (you get back 2 untapped lands, so it can also helping mana fixing) Blue, and I could be wrong but I think your Commander wants the odd Discard outlet too. A worse (but still potentially useful) piece of Blue ramp is Apprentice Wizard, it's not as good as Dreamscape, it's like Worn Powerstone, which is a good rock if you want bigger ramp to potentially cast a big creature a bit sooner. Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus are big ramp rocks with decent ratios. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers are pretty good together, if you have a lot of devotion to a colour Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can help, Deserted Temple can untap any land that makes extra mana. Less rampy and more of a big Scry effect, Soothsaying is a neat card if you care about your deck order. Scroll Rack is better but costs more.

Just a general idea, you might throw in things like Reconnaissance Mission, Bident of Thassa, and Coastal Piracy along with some Unblockable or Shadow creatures (Thalakos and Dauthi are the Blue and Black tribes). You can also throw in stuff like Sword of the Animist, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Prying Blade, Goldvein Pick, Grim Hireling, and any other attack payoffs you can find to generate more value over time. I understand you want a sea-monster theme, but you might want a way to draw some cards/get in some chip damage to soften people up. The only drawback to Shadows is that they can't chump block. If you really want your evasive creatures to be able to chump, there are some small flyers like Spectral Sailor and Thousand-Faced Shadow that have other upsides, these are risk free but are way less evasive than Shadows.

On that note, if you're worried about getting attacked you might look at Propaganda, War Tax, Flood, and Fatespinner are all great ways to make you hard to attack. Mass Diminish, Polymorphist's Jest, Sudden Spoiling, AEtherize, Aetherspouts are all great cards for people to fear.

Callous Oppressor is a funny repeatable theft effect, Ritual of the Machine and Helm of Possession can both steal stuff and are great with tokens, Thieving Skydiver can steal an artifact creature fwiw, Sower of Temptation is a so-so theft effect that shines bright if you can flicker or bounce it, Thalakos Deceiver is probably way better since he permanently steals whatever and can be reanimated, Inevitable Betrayal and Bribery are both pretty sweet.

The biggest (and perhaps best) theft effects are Mass Manipulation and Cultural Exchange, exchange requires bodies but can also be used aggressively to just ruin two players' boards.

Inkwell Leviathan, Lochmere Serpent, Spawning Kraken, Stormtide Leviathan, and Wrexial, the Risen Deep are some relevant creatures I use, some are better than others but there is nothing as bad as Sea Serpent or Bog Serpent, both cards I love but don't use.

If you like Whelming Wave, you might like Spectral Deluge as well.

Hope some of this helps, Big Dimir is a fun deck!

I like the idea, but thinking if it would be possible to add few equipments, auras or other spells to pump your commander. Because you need to deal 16 commander damage and this means 3 attacks per player, but with pump spells attack count can be reduced to two. Adding 1 power would be enough, for example:

I don't love Explorer's Scope, Bearded Axe, Goldvein Pick, and Helm of Kaldra. If it were me I'd add more equipment that grant evasion or some more card-draw.

Rogue's Gloves, Outpost Siege, Zephyr Boots, Secret Rendezvous, and Bladed Pinions are all decent. There are tons of options out there though.

I second Bloodforged Battle-Axe. Used to be a $10 card! Seems perfect in this deck.

Random Card: Goldvein Pick

No color identity, but ill keep it dwarf-related


Rutkad, Speaker of Legends

Legendary Creature - Dwarf Cleric

Equipped or enchanted creatures you control get +2/+2.

If a nontoken creature you control would die, if that creature was enchanted or equipped, you may instead return it to the battlefield face down under your control attached to a creature you control. It's a colorless Aura Rune enchantment and has "Enchant permanent" and "As long as enchanted permanent is a creature, it gets +1/+1. As long as enchanted permanent is an Equipment, it has 'Equipped creature gets +1/+1.'"

3/3

Old legends are kept alive through his tales, and new legends are formed from those who hear him speak.

Goldvein Pick is a nice utility equipment, and also please do not forget the various swords of X and Y, which are some of the best equipment in the game.
