Standard Dimir Control by PAOLOTHEWALL182
Today’s list is a Standard Dimir Control deck list I found on the MTGO deck dump, played by a player named PAOLOTHEWALL182. I’ve always been a control player at heart, and this deck has a lot going for it. There are a lot of creature decks in Standard right now, so the cheap removal, Elspeth’s Nightmare and the ability to reuse them are at a premium.
The deck has resiliency and life gain with Erebos’s Intervention, as well as a great top end with Ashiok, Nightmare Muse and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Shark Typhoon is also a card that can easily finish games, either by being cycled or hardcast to create an army of flying Sharks.
Mazemind Tome is one of the better pieces of card advantage in the format, and is made even better in decks that are able to reuse it by blinking it with Yorion after it’s gotten a few counters. The deck also has a few spell-lands that can provide a card in spots where one is needed, but also a land in spots where we need to make land drops.
If you like control decks, and are looking for one to play in Standard, this deck looks solid and is worth a try.
