Ahhh, I see. I could see a deck being made from both of those put together... I'll definitely have to revisit that, but I think that would be a totally different deck. However, Nightveil Specter seems really good. I wonder if that'd be better than any of my current 3 drops? Gonna edit my deck to ask about that and throw that in the MaybeBoard too.

Some better discard would be Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek. If you have no restrictions for cards Hymn to Tourach is an option. Liliana of the Veil is a better planeswalker. If you want more ways to steal your opponents' stuff besides Tergrid there are a few fun options Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Nightveil Specter, or Thief of Sanity.

I have replaced Ghastlord of Fugue with Nightveil Specter because, as great as the ghastlord is, I need to reduce both the mana curve of this deck and the number of colored mana symbols that it has.

I have replaced Ethersworn Adjudicator with Vona, Butcher of Magan, because, while the adjudicator is awesome, Vona's ability can destroy a greater variety of permanents and also does not require mana to use.

I have replaced Divinity of Pride with Liesa, Forgotten Archangel, because the divinity's mana cost was too color-intensive for a three-colored deck and it was little more than a flying beater, whereas Liesa actually has useful abilities.

These changes lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.10 to 4.06, and also improved the balance of colors within the deck, as well.

I have replaced Ghastlord of Fugue with Nightveil Specter, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.52 to 4.48, because, as awesome as the ghastlord is, I need to reduce both the mana curve of this deck and the number of color mana symbols that it contains.

Great deck!

Helm of the Ghastlord would be a great addition to beef up all your blue/black creatures. Also, Oona's Gatewarden is an easy fit in here. Some more dimir fundamentals would be Baleful Strix, Cemetery Puca, Dimir Guildmage, or Dimir Guildmage.

In terms of finisher cards, you could add: Gyruda, Doom of Depths, Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Dragonlord Silumgar, Silumgar, the Drifting Death, Ghastlord of Fugue, Blizzard Specter, Dire Undercurrents,

A version of the deck will a mill wincon could also make use of Ashiok, Dream Render, Phenax, God of Deception, Lurking Informant, Nemesis of Reason, Psychic Drain, Mind Grind, Nightveil Specter, and the many more mill focused cards from across blue and black.

A deck that leans more into flash could use Slitherwisp.

Overall, I quite like and want to see it down the line!

Wallis how u keep beating me to every modern deck

I agree that you need turn 1 plays. For this kind of deck, I suggest targeted discard: 4x Inquisition of Kozilek is the best one that isn't expensive.

I second cutting all mill-only cards. You don't need them to make Drown in the Loch good because of fetchlands and discard.

Nightveil Specter doesn't fit with your gameplan really, same with Siren. You need to cut down on creatures anyways in this kind of deck since you are presumably stealing your opponents threats instead.

Minion's Return I assume is there to enchant and steal your opponents stuff, which is why its different from Unearth. But its not that good so I'd still cut it, while Unearth is really not a bad card here with all the 3 drops you have.

Second the suggestion of Counterspell. I'd add some cantrips like Consider for consistency. Soul Manipulation is one of my pet cards that I really like but 4x is too much, I recommend 2x. For additional removal 1x Murderous Cut is decent.

Changes, 02Nov2021 continued:

In:

Improved mana rocks!: (Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Chromatic Orrery, Mox Opal, Voltaic Key). Little explanation needed here. The key can do more than be a mana rock, but considering how many of my rocks can now make 2+ mana per tapping, that's gonna be a lot of its purpose.

More turns: (Time Sieve, Expropriate). Seems like a better theme to splash in than pillow fort, and both of these cards are also about my main themes: artifact love and theft. Speaking of which...

Artifact love/recursion: (Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge, Tezzeret, Artifice Master, Sai, Master Thopterist, Emry, Lurker of the Loch, Dakkon, Shadow Slayer). This deck loves artifacts. It kinda has to love Tezzeret too as a result.

Your stuff is mine now: (Thief of Sanity, Nightveil Specter, Opposition Agent, Xanathar, Guild Kingpin, Empress Galina). I wanna take your stuff. All of your stuff. And not "until this card leaves the battlefield", either. Once I take it, it's mine. Bonus points for denying you access to them in the first place before making them mine.

Improved Lands: (Urza's Saga, Exotic Orchard, Glimmervoid). Urza's Saga is pretty much the card that made me realize I needed to update this deck.

Other: Fabricate is better than Diabolic Tutor by just about every measure. The only drawback being that it can only get artifacts is practically a moot point in this deck. Lithoform Engine just seems really good in here. I can't wait til I can copy an Expropriate with it... Finally, Paradox Haze cuz I love the way it can interact with not only The Ladies themselves but with Xanathar as well.
