There are similar Izzet and Azorius flavors of this theme, but I thought a Dimir version would be fun.  And fun it sure is.  This is the deck I currently use on the BO1 ladder.  But for any of you wanting to take this to BO3, [[Noxious Grasp]] is a must in the sideboard to deal with [[Shifting Ceratops]], which this deck quite literally has zero way of dealing with otherwise.  That "must" is both bold and italicized.
