Whispersilk Cloak Discussion

I always find that monored EDH decks tend to have an issue getting enough cards in hand. I could see that being an issue here, especially with the "free" play abilities you have in! Some things that could help are cards like
Cavalier of Flame
Mask of Memory
, Neheb, Dreadhoard Champion, and
Some non-creature cards that might have good synergy for the deck are Commander's Plate , Skullclamp , Whispersilk Cloak , Worldslayer , Embercleave , Mirage Mirror , Aggravated Assault , Gratuitous Violence , Chaosphere , and Sorrow's Path .
Some other creatures that could help are Breaker of Armies , Void Winnower , Marton Stromgald , Urabrask the Hidden , Legion Loyalist , Hellkite Charger , Flamerush Rider , Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , Soulbright Flamekin , and Siege Dragon . Also, any eldrazi if you wanna be that mean, especially the original set with annihilator.
The sacrifice clause on Purphoros can also have some fun opportunity, especially with cards like Blood Aspirant , Mycosynth Wellspring , and Ancient Stone Idol .
Oh! And if you do end up with that many mountains, Jaws of Stone , Landslide , Spawn of Thraxes , and Spire Barrage , could all be ridiculously powerful late-game!

Underground River is something I will definitely add. I've just been led to believe (perhaps brainwashed) that artifacts to play your commander earlier are a must. I'm not sure how you generally feel about that. Darksteel Forge is undoubtedly a great card it just feels like I'll be dead 10x over before I get to cast it most of the time. I agree 100% about the equipments. I had been running Whispersilk Cloak but what I got to thinking was that there were so many unblockable dudes already that I could get away with putting something like Sword of the Animist on an unblockable nerd and be able to get that extra land no matter what. I was thinking maybe Sword of Body and Mind would be another one to add? Bitterblossom is my #1 most desired card for this deck for sure. Im hoping to maybe be able to trade for it or something haha bc 50$ is a lot for one card for me. I generally won't buy a card if its above 20. Stuff like Force of Negation I just got lucky and opened up. I understand that dimir rogues may not be the best against aggro and Voltron. The people I play with are super lame. The only deck I have that's good against what they play is my Sacrifice deck with Yawgmoth, Thran Physician . It annihilates all the 1/1s so of course I'm not allowed to play it -.-

Alright, so since we've last chatted about my Anowon deck, I've overhauled it and even won a game with it! If you haven't had too many troubles with land drops then keep it, or else bump it up one or two more. Idk your budget so I'll just mention what I think works well so you can lmk otherwise.
I'd switch out
Talisman of Dominance
. Def take out
as you don't want to be feeding your graveyard so your meta doesn't take advantage of that.
can be replaced with
. Costs the same, but it'll draw you a card once you're caught up on mana.
Sword of Hearth and Home
is the new
Sword of the Animist
and oh man is it good. The blink plus the untapped land, chefs kiss.
Even though Anowon helps mill, I think the main focus is not to do so much milling and get your attacks in with the side effect being mill. Ironically enough, I won by decking someone after I used
Zareth San, the Trickster
to steal some crazy aura that buffed up my faerie rogue up by +20/+20 to KO the person before lol. If you take a look a mine, my theme seems to be "copying". I want to keep copying that next thing that'll push me forward.
Does your group have a more cEDH or just high powered vibe? Cause that'll change what I might recommend.
is already better than
bc counterspell is just a 1 for 1. Replace with
Pact of Negation
or if your group plays a lot of 1 drops, then
as that'll bring the salt. Keep a counter in hand just for that
Rise of the Dark Realms
Your removal could also use a boost. I would take out
Go for the Throat
Flip and throw in
. You could also see the removal I'm running and possibly switch the mentioned cards for those. You could possibly even add
but M.Rider is the better version of that card.
Board wipes are good, but why crux though? I can understand if that's just what you have, then do it up. If you can, replace with
or just cut it as you already have
which is pretty much the best board wipe. Kudos!
can take a hike, unless you're going to add
Narset, Parter of Veils
. If you're trying to be oppressive that is LOL. You have decent draw already and you wouldn't want to feed your opponent that Realms! If you need to replace then add
(might get destroyed) or
Into the Story
As far as creatures go, make them unblockable with Whispersilk Cloak like you mentioned a while ago. It works wonders. Look at my list and see what I'm running, bc there are so many options. I highly recommend Dauthi Voidwalker . If you're able to put a void counter on "rise" after milling everyone out a bunch, you can sac DV and use it against the card's owner and make them suffer! Because that's what Commander is all about, right? If you have any more questions feel free to ask! I'm always down to help and welcome all the advice people give me as well. Wreck your playgroup next time you get together!

Greetings fellow dinosaur caster!
Just a thought, but I think this deck needs more ramp. Any deck, even ones with much lower mana cost commanders, comfortably want around 37 lands, but 35 minimum. Gishath is pretty massive, so I’d even run a few more land ramp cards. Nature's Lore , Skyshroud Claim , and Kodama's Reach would all be excellent includes.
Also, while I know you probably want as many dinosaurs as possible to insure Gishath triggers go off, some of these dinosaurs could probably be cut for the better. Snubhorn Sentry , Nest Robber , and Huatli's Raptor in particular come to mind. Instead of trying to guarantee you get something, even if it’s not useful, I’d try adding things that make Gishath harder to deal with, insuring you’re doing more damage with Gishath AND getting more triggers along the way. If you’re trying to keep a budget, Whispersilk Cloak and Canopy Cover are both cheap options.
There are other suggestions I could make, but they might be.....more expensive.
If you’re looking to steal ideas, this is my dinosaur deck here. It runs Atla Palani as the commander, but the pre I’ve is the same. It’s foiled out nature makes it look a lot more expensive then it actually is....

I've been heavily abusing Whispersilk Cloak and Gift of Immortality in my Kalia deck. If there is any static damage states or even the smallest responses can trip her up for me. I feel like it's all about isolating her trigger and letting the rest of the deck play itself. Looks good though.

I like this deck, and I like how Charix is somewhat of a foil for Moraug, Fury of Akoum (which is one of my most favourite commanders).
For Charix, it seems being able to manipulate the number of lands under your control in both directions. For putting out additional lands, Ghirapur Orrery and Patron of the Moon seem great. To bounce your own lands, any Soratami, e.g. Meloku the Clouded Mirror or Uyo, Silent Prophet can be very useful.

I have a soft spot for Anowon lol so cool deck. Your land count seems good enough, don't really think the Dimir Signet is that necessary. Since you're trying to get your creatures through, I highly recommend Whispersilk Cloak as it makes any creature unblockable. Check out Anowon, The Rogue Daddi if you wanna see how I'm going about my Anowon deck. I tried to add somewhat of a copying theme.
