Said on Shirei...

#1

Yoyoyo ThatOneGuyAI!

I'd start by cutting the low-impact creatures such as:

Tattered Mummy, Shambling Goblin, Serrated Scorpion, Orzhov Enforcer, Myr Sire, Festering Goblin, Doomed Dissenter, and Deathgreeter.

I like your sac-outlets that can protect themselves through Shirei (e.g. Viscera Seer/Thoughtpicker Witch/Fume Spitter), and I'd try to avoid the ones that don't have that particular interaction: Nantuko Husk/Carrion Feeder.

Cards I would add in: Altar of Dementia, Plagued Rusalka, Dark Ritual, Feed the Swarm (enchantment removal in black), Agadeem's Awakening  Flip, Kaervek, the Spiteful (allows you to protect Shirei), and Liliana's Steward.

Oh wow, that's a lot of suggestions. Thanks king-saproling!

Lunar Force is an interesting idea that definitely synergizes well with Venser. However to use it properly, you'd be required to use a lot of mana (3 mana on the Force, while saving up another 4 for Venser). Though I think if the ability was a may-ability, it would totally be worth it.

Speaking of "mays," would the same trick work with Perplexing Chimera? I'm not familiar with the fine-print of the interaction, but I believe you could return Chimera to your hand as its ability triggers, and basically steal their spell with no downside (besides paying a total of 9 mana for the exchange)? If that would work, that would be pretty nifty indeed.

Okay, so the Ghostly Flicker/Displace cards are for the combos with stuff like Naru Meha, Master Wizard? Interesting. I haven't thought of that. Does this kind of fall in with your Sigil Tracer suggestion?

I've been keeping Equilibrium in the back of my mind for quite some time now. On paper it's a really good card, but I've found that most of the time, I'd rather be playing something else, and it becomes a dead card in my hand. It does synergize really well with Venser, but it's also pretty mana intensive.

Cloudstone Curio. Now that is a suggestion! I'm still not entirely sure about all of the implications of this card, but right away, I can see that it can potentially make Venser bounce one extra thing every time he hits the board. I suppose that it also makes it easier to bounce Venser back to your hand with another creature if you don't have one of the Gourmet Bagels out. It also allows you to infinitely bounce a Great Whale with a Peregrine Drake (or a Glasspool Mimic  Flip/Clever Impersonator/Spark Double/Phyrexian Metamorph for that matter). A definite include.
