i tried Sygg, River Cutthroat and feel It would have to take the Auntie's Snitch/Oona's Prowler spot when needed and could def feel the damage loss. Was usually chump blocked unless i had Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive out. Other two had flying or return to my hand so was able to do a little work when struggled with keeping Tetsuko. I'll have to try to test it again if i ever bump up to 4x Tetsuko

ZorrosRage I actually saw that Rogue deck earlier, I was going to comment but I was on break at work and I completely forgot haha.

I specifically designed this deck to be built around unblockable creatures with equipment, so I think I would want to keep Deathcult Rogue in the deck. Having equipment on him is just too good in the games I've played with this deck.

I originally had Vampire Cutthroat in the deck but I felt like having the Slither Blades were enough for the one drop. I already have too much stuff to play turn 2 to cast him turn 2, and turn 3 I would rather have the extra power to push the damage through. But I've kept him in the back of my mind and will continue to do so.

I honestly am not a big fan of Auntie's Snitch, and I've toyed with Oona's Prowler, but I like having the guaranteed damage that other cards provide. They're both exellent cards, but I just choose to have the deck built this way.

I also originally had 4x Bitterblossom while designing it and in the deck's first iteration, but I found it a bit clunky having 4. I cut 2 to add an additional Stinkdrinker Bandit and Triton Tactics.

All legitimate recommendations, but I need to do a few more games with my playgroup with this iteration before I consider swapping from my unblockable build. I'll keep them all in mind though :)

I really don't like Deathcult Rogue in the deck. Unblockable for 3 does not seem worth it. I think one of these would work better in that spot Oona's Prowler,Vampire Cutthroat , Auntie's Snitch

Maybe up Bitterblossom to 4 and Stinkdrinker Bandit to 4.

Please look at my Rogue Deck and let me know what you think

willis1234Yeah Oona's Blackguard kind of goes against him but usually dies fast to removal pretty fast. His effect still ends up working a lot. If it don't it just wins games. As for Earwig Squad I was running 3 but Took 1 out to test Auntie's Snitch. Auntie is a blast to play with Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive.

Thieves mostly use more control and with that mana curve I'd suggest t play less lands.Even if yome cards are at 5 or 4 mana most of those have a prowl cost that makes them cheaper.I suggest Pestermite as an replacement of Deathcult Rogue because it can block still has evasion and becomes unblockable with Tetsuko.And as much as I like Earwig Squad it won't be that good because it can't interact with Tetsuko you should rather counter something with Spell Pierce because it cost little which allows you to cast stuff and also protect cards like Tetsuko from removal. Then you could also switch between creature removal and counterspells (altouch you want counters to get rid of Field Whipes and co.

Merfolk Looter & Undercity Informer is something you should also keep out of your deck. You rather want to go fast with Rogues and Mill isn't something your deck want's to do.

Neurok Commando & Sygg, River Cutthroat are certainly good because of their cardadvantage.

If you want to mill you should put Undercity Informer & Earwig Squad in the same Deck and add rogues token via Marsh Flitter or sacrificing Auntie's Snitch while also including Bitter Ordeal to remove more lands from the Deck. But for such a Deck you rather want 1CMC 1/1 creatures that are hard to block to cast Earwing Squad as soon as possible and sacrifice them later. E.g. Faerie Miscreant (also draws a card if you already have one), Slither Blade or Triton Shorestalker.The Mill version could also use some counters and certainly Noggin Whack to see what your opponent hides in his/her hand and discard dangerous cards like field whipes befor your opponent has a chance to use them.But I guess you're not after the Mill win.

I hope that helps. Always keep in mind that you also want to have cards to prevent your opponent to stop your strategy or to stop their strategy instead ;)

Scathain on ROGUES ASSEMBLE !

If you're using Gwendlyn Di Corci as your commander, you'll want to take advantage of all that forced discarding. Waste Not is one of the best cards for doing that, though there are of course a number of others.

Also, with as many evasive creatures as you are using, you'll want some way to take advantage of that. In particular, you'll probably want to consider adding cipher cards to your deck, particularly Stolen Identity.

You'll also want to give serious thought to adding prowl cards to your deck, particularly Knowledge Exploitation, Notorious Throng, Stinkdrinker Bandit (which also boosts unblocked rogues nicely), and Auntie's Snitch.

YellowFlassh23 on Blue/Black Faerie Rogue

Your deck is indeed lacking focus lemme see what I can do. Also these suggestions are assuming you're going for a low to the ground evasive agro build of faeries. Your deck is also extremely budget and if any of suggestions are too out of your price range it's fine let me know and I'll see if I can some up with a better alternative. Also your land base really needed some changes made to it so I made them I'm not sure if with the changes it equals 60 cards still let me know it not. I really hope these help

Changes to enchantments (+)

  • +4 Bitterblossom This card does everything you need in your deck; low cmc and makes rouges/faeries. By itself bitterblossom can take over and win most games if left unchecked long enough.

Changes to enchantments (-)

  • -1 Protective Bubble your cards almost all already have flying which makes them hard to block + scion already gives shroud no need to have this semi-expensive protection in here

Changes to instants/sorceries (+)

  • +2 Counterspell one of the best counters in legacy and since you're only playing a two color deck it should not be too hard to cast being UU

Changes to instants/sorceries (-)

  • -1 Hideous Visage again no need to make your creatures hard to block they already are.

  • -2 Notorious Throng this card is good if you have the mana as it can straight up end games if cast for its prowl cost but most of the time it's over kill. its insanely good as a 1 of that can steal games if you cast it when your opponent's tapped out (say by mistbind clique) also I've added quite a bit of draw power so you can see it rather often even though its just a 1 of.

  • -1 Recall you play so many creatures and they are either A. easy to protect or B. expendable you don't need to wasting mana to get them back when you could just cast another in the place of one that was lost.

  • -1 Smallpox kinda lack luster as a 1 of and hurts you as well slowing you down, you're trying to win quickly and overwhelm your opponent before they have answers to your army.

  • -1 Sorin's Vengeance another card that is way to expensive for what it does by the time you are able to cast this either you or your opponent already won.

  • -1 Nameless Inversion two mana for a pseudo removal/buff isn't really as worth it as straight up removal

  • -1 Sorin's Thirst see nameless inversion

  • -1 Wring Flesh see nameless inversion

  • -2 Violet Pall this card is just straight up bad sorry to say its way to expensive and the value of a single 1/1 faerie rogue for it is not worth in any way.

Changes to creatures (+)

  • +4 Faerie Miscreant This is another low to the ground faeries rogue that draws you cards.

  • +1 Latchkey Faerie This card if your bring it in for its prowl cost can be very effeceint but you don't want to be paying the 4 mana ever so have 2 means you see if enough where it can cantrip and give you a 3/1 body while digging deeper into your deck but also you won't always see it.

  • +3 Mistbind Clique This card is insane its a 4/4 for 4, protects a faeries (if they target for removal just flash in and exile target protecting it), semi-time walks your opponent (cast on upkeep and taps them out so they can only play instant in response). They only reason I'm not recommending 4 is that it is kind of expensive and you want to keep this decks cmc pretty low.

  • +1 Oona's Blackguard this is the main card in your deck and you want to see it every game as soon as possible it makes all your rogues when they etb bigger speeding up your opponent's clock as well makes your opponent discard when they take dmg (which is going to be often) keeping them from stopping your army of creatures.

  • +1 Scion of Oona this card protects all your faeries(flash it in in response to removal) and makes them bigger and you can bring it in on your opponent's end-step to save mana on your turn. the only disadvantage is that since it grants shroud not hexproof you can not target your own faeries(which is why I'm not recommending 4). Also having 2 means they can't be target as well.

Changes to creatures (-)

  • -1 Stinkdrinker Bandit while this card is excellent at making your rogues bigger(since all of them having flying they will usually be unblocked) and its prowl cost makes it very efficient to cast you already have quite a few other lords in the deck and to many buffs may be overkill. (this card is still amazing in theory and if you want to keep 3 that is fine I just feel you might need to start adding more removal/control)

  • -1 Auntie's Snitch I feel the goblins are unnecessary and they are easily blocked bc they don't have flying

  • -2 Ghostly Changeling 3 cmc is a lot in your deck + an additional 2 to make it into a 3/3 temporarily is not worth it.

  • -1 Marsh Flitter too expensive for a lack luster effect

  • -1 Mothdust Changeling it is cheap but doesn't do much except slow you down to make it flying? not worth it

  • -1 Nightshade Stinger again doesn't do much can't even chump block big creatures

  • -2 Prickly Boggart low cmc and has fear but other than that doesn't do anything and fear is worse than flying no point in really having it

  • -1 Sower of Temptation while this card can steal big creatures from your opponent your opponent won't always have big creature to steal its cmc is also high. this card is better in the side board where you can bring it in when you know it will be an effective choice.

I guess the plan would be to boost power and run fling, so something like Shared Animosity and a black splash for Auntie's Snitch + Rite of Consumption, perhaps a Soulblast but the mana ramp is tricky. Battle Hymn/Shared Animosity/Soulblast with some more token creation perhaps? Flesh Allergy might even work with Tragic Slip backup. Arms Dealer might find a place, and running snow lands into Skred would give a bit more removal for a pseudo control shell I guess. Siege-Gang Commander could be useful in that case, and a green splash to abuse Cryptolith Rite for more mana? Its a little tricky to hit hard in midrange with goblins. Some haste enabling from Ashling's Prerogative and Mass Hysteria could help. I'd find it tricky to get enough out of that big t4-5 punch to take someone out. Its doable, but would need some tinkering.
