Tasigur, the Golden Fang Discussion

Only around half of your pieces benefit from the cost reduction of Umori; that being the case, it might be better to include the cat oven package, and/or Asmo and Cookbook. Endurance in the mainboard seems pretty medium at best, and Cat would give you more black cards to pitch to Grief . You might also consider Fury if you want to stick with Umori. There's also Bone Shards .

For sideboard: Ingot Chewer and Shriekmaw are both decent choices, Collector Ouphe , Tasigur, the Golden Fang (for long matchups), and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet .

Small addition: This works the other way around as well - you may, for example, put and/or cards into your Tasigur, the Golden Fang deck

For a very long time, I ran Damia, Sage of Stone as my primary commander and even resisted switching to Tasigur, the Golden Fang . With the release of Thrasios, Triton Hero and Tymna the Weaver there was enough incentive to change over, but it was still a hard choice.

As for the examples you've given though, I still feel like there's a bit of a disconnect between your existing commanders and the new example commanders. Sure, Zacama, Primal Calamity is naya an interacts with lands, but it's still a very different deck than Hazezon Tamar .

Just like how using Chainer, Dementia Master is about being able to abuse reanimation (which may or may not be abusing discard ETB effects). So while the deck may have a heavy discard theme (which on quick inspection looks like it does) however a lot of the card choices in the deck would still look different with someone like Tegrid, God of Fright leading it.

I also think that there are two distinct questions here:

1) When do players feel it's the right time to replace cards in the 99, and;

2) When do players feel it's the right time to replace their commander

I feel like question 2 is a lot more difficult of a question, as geenrall you're not just swapping a pet card in/out - you're effectively restructuring the deck at this point (even if you are keeping the theme the same).

1empyrean on Infinite Combo for Monkey Cage?

That's a good enough reason I suppose. I've used Monkey Cage in a Tasigur, the Golden Fang deck, but it wasn't really a combo or anything.

Esix, Fractal Bloom and Thieving Amalgam to trigger the cage would be super fun. It isn't infinite, but its very strong.

Cool deck! Could a Delve mechanic help close out the game? Maybe Empty the Pits , Temporal Trespass , or Tasigur, the Golden Fang ?

All of your points are valid but Drown in the Loch only cares about the spell’s/creature’s controller’s graveyard, not ours. I want Murktide Regent to be good but the argument against it is the same as Tombstalker : 2 mana is more than 1. And in a deck that doesn’t want a long game, that’s huge. Tasigur, the Golden Fang is a one-of here for the same reason but it potentially allows me to save, something for Snapcaster Mage if I need to. He is not here for his ability. Grief will have a home here soon. I’m still trying to find the correct place for Counterspell . It does belong, just unsure where.

I think that 17 lands is fine for this list for several reasons, mostly because this deck is actually 52 cards in theory (4x Street Wraith , 4x Mishra's Bauble ). That said, the graveyard is being extremely taxed with 4 expensive delve creatures and 2 Snapcaster Mage s in the list, plus you want to be able to support Drown in the Loch ... I feel that Murktide Regent and Tasigur, the Golden Fang don't fit into this list very well unfortunately. I agree that Counterspell is probably much better off as a 2-of, but I don't know if it should be in the main or in the side.

I don't know if this helped any, but I think that MH2 can make this deck feel more similar to Legacy Shadow lists due to Grief and Counterspell , but Force of Negation is not Force of Will and clearly the cantrips are less than ideal in Modern. Murktide Regent might be a ton better than I am expecting, but it is much less explosive than Gurmag Angler and cannot come down on turn-2 no matter what you do (unless you're opening hand has 4 "free" spells, 2 fetches, and the drake).

I like the idea of this deck, but its tricky to judge without a full sideboard plan. It almost feels like it should be a Tasigur, the Golden Fang /maindeck lurrus list, where you are grindy value against some matchups, and racing with delver the rest, siding in or out relevant spells to gear appropriately.
