Dimir prerelease usually won with Consuming Aberration or this. As everyone has said already, this is one of the best targets for Cipher, since the Keymaster Rogue needed you to bounce a creature to get it into play.

You'll usually be able to attack unblocked with this, since there are only 9 Rogue's in the set, and Ogre Slumlord is rare, so that doesn't usually count. Out of the 8 remaining rogue's, 5 of them have a toughness of 2 or less, and most of them are better alive than dead (This, the aforementioned Keymaster, Shadow Alley Denizen, Syndicate Enforcer, and Metropolis Sprite).
Out of the remaining 3 (Bane Alley Broker, Undercity Informer, and Balustrade Spy), 2 of them are uncommon and 1 of them can't damage it alone.

So in a limited environment, this is going to be hard to deal with. Tha... (see all)

Am I the only guy who thinks this guy bears a resemblance to the "Like a Boss" meme?

. . .

"So then, I attacked, and didn't get blocked because I was the only rogue in play. Like a boss."

I have a Rogue deck. I really hope this poor bloke doesn't meet it.

I like this guy, but I'm sad Dimir didn't get a two-drop unblockable. I suppose it would have made cipher too powerful in limited, but I'm beginning to really appreciate how crazy good Dimir Infiltrator was.

great cipher guy, more often than not straight up unblockable, for 3 mana in 2 colors, solid 4.5/5 from me in limited, 3/5 in standard, cause dimir will just run invisible stalker, and other formats just dont care

100% awesome in Limited, if you haven't tried, you must, this thing makes Dimir/Cipher not only playable but fantastic in draft.

A phantom warrior with a slightly easier cost (in blue black decks) but an evasion not quite as powerful. Not bad, not great.

It's much worse than Dimir Infiltrator. The availability for a mono type deck and 1 additional power doesn't make Deathcult Rogue superior. Infiltrator attacks 1 turn earlier, and in the late game it always can be transmuted to something else.

Better than Phantom Warrior in blue/black mill decks using Paranoid Delusions' cipher ability

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
