Secrets of Dimir

by DeZombiemon on 02 December 2012

Main Deck (65 cards)

Sideboard (0 cards)

No sideboard found.

The owner of this deck hasn't added a sideboard, they probably should...

Submit a list of cards below to bulk import them all into your sideboard. Post one card per line using a format like "4x Birds of Paradise" or "1 Blaze", you can even enter just the card name by itself like "Wrath of God" for single cards.


Deck Description

Dimir is my favorite guild and with Gatecrash in the near future I'm starting the Dimir deck now.
Suggestions are highly welcome! Thanks

This is the Dimir mill deck, I am making a creature based Dimir deck too.

Deck discussion for Secrets of Dimir

Looks like a pretty good Dimir mill deck, maybe add inexorable tides (for szadek) or psychic spiral? Another good one is named dimir doppleganger (I think that is the name, not rly sure). OR Dimir infiltrator. Good deck

Thanks, any idea what to take out?
Cause I was thinking of putting in both Doppelganger and psychic spiral.

Holy smokes this is brilliant ! ! !
I would suggest some more "Impersonators" like 'Clone' and 'Vesuvan Doppelganger', but you already have Cryptoplasm.
The only card I can come up with at this time is "Lobotomy" And I don't even know if it would fit in. I think this is a very cool deck, man. Very well built :D

Thanks man! Yeah the only reason I'm not going to add lobotomy is because of this reason:
1. This deck is made to mill as many cards as possible instead of trying to get rid of all of their good cards specifically.
Thanks for the suggestion though, and I'm glad you like the deck!

Yeah... focussing on spell mill. Hmm... you could however "clone" a huge fattie from opponent and beat your way through along side 'Mindcrank'

Also check this deck my friend has made:

I like dimir decks too, and they are awesome for mill !
I made one some weeks ago, it was with zombies, undead alchemist was the main card
Here, I would just drop psychic drain and add Mind sculpt
And mind control too, there's a card that does the same, with the same mana cost, and gives you the creature with infect too, in my opnion, its better but u are the one who has to choose.
Another idea is drop mind control and add some phantasmal image...
Well, here is my mill deck, just for you to see, dont need comment ;P

I like the idea of Mind sculpt, I will definitely add that. I know of Corrupted Conscience and thanks for reminding me that it would be great in this deck. I'm glad you like the deck :)

I like the idea, idk what a couple of the cards are though, i'll have to check them out. I too have a Dimir deck coming together. I'm making it creatureless. Because I want it to be fast enough to where creatures won't be necessary but i'm also waiting for Gatecrash to come out so I can see what Dimir has in store. Go ahead and check it out man, suggestions and ideas are appreciated. Its my first deck posted on here.

I just checked out the ones I didn't know about. And they arent that bad, I dig it. I would take out Cutpurse, i'm not sure what to take it out for but i'm sure you can use something better. Like more mill or something that has Transmute so you have the option to use it or Transmute it to dig in your deck for something more useful for a hard time in a duel. Like Dimir Infiltrator to use him or dig out Glimpse the Unthinkable.

Ok good idea. I will check your deck out later, I have to go to a concert right now.

I would suggest trying to lower your mana curve by running either raven guild master or scalpelexis. Maybe consider hedron crab too. Corrupted conscience i dont really get as infect doesnt go with the theme at. Also it does look like you are going to be attacking a lot so I would add mindcrank.
Overall this is really solid tho nice job.

By lowering your mana curve i meant removing Szadek just to clarify

Well I kinda like Szadek and he is amazingg if the game lasts longer than I want it to.
I like the idea of Raven Guild Master, Hedron Crab, and Scalpelexis, but my problem is taking out stuff.
Any suggestions on that?

Good deck dude, it seems fun to play, but I'd get rid of the house of shadow for some multi colored land, it doesnt seem very effective

Great deck, but you should take out the Cryptoplasms, they don't fit a mill deck.

You know what goes GREAT with archive trap and mind funeral? Ghost quarter. Sneak them in and your opponent wont know WHAT to do. Empty out a few of their lands, mill them a shit ton with free traps, then mind funeral for the kill.

also, at some point, might want to replace your signets with drowned catacombs. Maybe even sunken ruins (the filter land, i think thats what its called)

I totally forgot about sunken ruins, definitely an addition.

OH and there is a storm mill card (because thats necesary and all, after you mind funeral and archive trap) that mills 3 called Brainfreeze that is just ridiculous. so mind funeral, trap, then brain freeze mills 9 for TWO MANA

This is an impressive deck, not very mana costly, and effective. Have you considered adding Trepanation Blade for Szadek, it would double his milling and counters.

I have thought about it, and would like to put one in. My problem at this point is what to take out.

Perhaps a Ghost Quarter, it does not seem to fit the theme of the deck to me.

0
Posted 17 December 2012 at 18:39

Yeah the only reason I have Ghost Quarter is to activate the Archive Trap.

Memory Erosion might be a good add in.

Would you please take a minute and check out my Casual Affliction deck? I'm trying to make a cheap but successful mono black discard. Thanks!

You should make a sideboard for making it a more stable deck. You should add 2 graffdigger's cage against reanimator decks and maybe some counterspells instead of "archieve trap" and "brain freeze" because they won't be efficient enough sometimes. Also since you have 26 lands it would be deadly for you if you can't draw any cards other than lands during 4 turns. To prevent that maybe you can add something like ponder. Besides why don't you use "Nephalia Drownyard" to support your mill strategy, believe me such lands as "Dimir Aqueduct" sometimes make you lose the match.

Other than that it's a pretty good deck.
