Animating Faerie

Animating Faerie

Creature — Faerie


(You may cast Animating Faerie from exile if you sent it on an adventure.)

Bring to Life

Sorcery — Adventure

Target noncreature artifact you control becomes a 0/0 artifact creature. Put four +1/+1 counters on it.

(You may cast Bring to Life for from anywhere that you have the permission to cast this, then exile it on an adventure instead of putting it into your graveyard. When you have not chosen to cast Bring to Life, this card is treated only as Animating Faerie in whatever zone it is in.)

(Example scenarios for Bring to Life: You may cast this off of Melek, Izzet Paragon. You may not target this with Snapcaster Mage. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben increases the cost of this. Electrodominance requires X=3. If your opponent owns this and you cast it, you may cast their Animating Faerie from exile. You can cast this from a cascade spell if the spell has a cost greater than Animating Faerie's cost.)

Daveslab2022 so I'm not a fan of Animating Faerie because it cant target any of your creatures or tez touch because it cant hit serpent because that's arguably the best creature in the deck.

But holy crap talisman is insane, you can activate the ability and then sack it to blast with it on the stack and get a 1 sided tutor affect. I'm not sure the best way to abuse it yet but I'm definitely going to find out

Grubbernaut, thanks a lot! I really liked the idea of putting Stonecoil Serpent , Fabled Passage and Animating Faerie ... I'll try these ones in place of Tezzeret the Schemer , Prakhata Pillar-Bug and Evolving Wilds .

3/4 drops are a bit on the high side for this sort of deck. I would consider more Hopes, Stonecoil Serpent (dodges Trophy/Decay); in black, you could also consider Golden Egg , but I think 0/1 drops are the way to go. Also, Witching Well is a cool one.

Also, Fabled Passage is a strict upgrade over Evolving Wilds , but I think untapped lands are important enough that playing Mana Confluence or even Aether Hub can be worth it over the taplands.

Other ideas: Inquisitive Puppet , Walking Ballista , Hangarback Walker , Animating Faerie

I'm working on a vehicle ensoul deck with a full set of Animating Faerie . Arts become 4/4 and when they're crewed they become bigger. 7/7 flying Smuggler's Copter ? 6/7 Silent Submersible and both providing card advantage!?

Testing still and only have 100 modern budget at LGS so...

I would skip red at all - you gain almost nothing from it besides 2 blasts - and dip into green - add 4 Walking Ballista and 4 Hardened Scales and 4 Stonecoil Serpent instead of the other creatures and focus on animating value non-creature artifacts with Ensoul, Animating Faerie or Dance of the Manse , if you focus on self-sacrificing artifacts.
