DrukenReaps on Should I Pretend This Or That?

2 weeks ago

PIZZ_PAZZ As long as you jump around the "once each turn" non-sense the staff is great. Maybe I'll steal the one I have in my Karn deck, kind of an expensive card to grab a second copy... I'm not a fan of equipment with Marisil since I tend to use AEtherling or Pack Rat to cage more things. I would have to re-equip it over and over. The rings are on my list to get though. Thanks for your thoughts!

Skjoldschoennemann I actually just removed Conjurer's Closet and Hateflayer. The closet doesn't play well with AEtherling and so more often than not just sat there and did nothing or almost nothing. I guess it saves me but that hasn't seemed like enough of a reason to keep it. Hateflayer is fun and will likely find a way back into the deck I just like Spikeshot Elder more since i don't need to do any tapping which is a requirement if I want to untap.

I tired a few bounce effects before but I just didn't like them. Ends up requiring too much mana and I can only get Mairsil back out on my turn. Flicker effects allow me to just keep things going much easier and in a much more broken way.

Unfortunately no.

All abilities that have "at the beginning of your/the next end step" in them trigger at the same time. This includes both Conjurer's Closet and the delayed triggered ability of AEtherling. When Conjurer's Closet triggers and goes on the stack, you have to choose its target at that point. Mairsil, the Pretender will still be in exile and thus not a valid target.

If Conjurer's Closet instead read "you may exile a creature you control" instead of "target creature," then it would work if you put the triggers in the right order on the stack, as in that case the Closet wouldn't target, and therefore wouldn't need to have a trigger chosen when it goes on the stack.

Also, Chromium, the Mutable is a powerhouse. Such a workhorse, and might even be about as good of a finisher as AEtherling in rtr standard was.

Yea, unfortunately Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is way too expensive right now too. I picked mine up during prerelease since I kinda knew how ridiculous he was going to be, and control walkers are just historically expensive.

If I have Mairsil, the Pretender and I cage AEtherling, because it technically is the begining of the end step when Mairsil is returned, can I use Conjurer's Closet to exile Mairsil again at the begining of the end step still?

AdmiralSocrates: You bring up a good point! I guess I was thinking just the Rekindling Phoenixes beating down, as they're pretty tough to remove and in the late game you can protect them with your counterspells and wear down your opponent's removal for them. I suppose there's also a grindy burn aspect with Firemind's Research and Ionize as well as the Lightning Strikes for reach. You should be heavily favored against aggro with the Deafening Clarions sweeping and gaining you life back with your phoenixes. Maybe I should go ahead and put a Nezahal, Primal Tide in the sideboard for the control matchup... here's to hoping there's another AEtherling-type finisher in guilds! What do you think would be the best finisher for a deck like this? Thanks for the feedback!

sideboards can have 15 cards btw.

Most control decks use very few win-cons, no more than 8, probably close to 6.

I would sudgest playing Kefnet the Mindful and AEtherling.

I've always thought Merfolk Looter was over looked in control/tempo builds Supreme Will is pretty solid too. What's the direction you want to take this deck. You just want to see all the second choice control options?? AEtherling is a good finisherInsidious Will is a good counter
