I have a blink deck in the same colours: Eternal Displaceness (finite combo flicker).

Though my deck isn't modern legal, you might like some cards out of it: Mystic Snake is just ridiculous with blink effects, and it's especially great with Displace and eternal witness. A card i really enjoy in my list is Battlefield Thaumaturge.

It absolutely works! Battlefield Thaumaturge was printed to synergize with some of the multi-target spells from Theros, such as Hour of Need or Glimpse the Sun God. Descent of the Dragons works the same way.

I even designed a deck around it some years ago! Group Discount

If i have a Battlefield Thaumaturge on the battlefield (obviously) then cast Descent of the Dragons targeting four of my creatures, does Descent of the Dragons CMC go down to because of Battlefield Thaumaturge? or am i just really dumb?

Loganrockwitch Thanks for the tips. I went ahead and created a sideboard and made a seperate prototype deck just for all those other cards I was looking at. I also cut Solidarity of Heroes Vines of Vastwood and Battlefield Thaumaturge to make room for Scavenging Ooze and Sage of Hours I might cut the sage, for a different two drop, but I wanted to have a blue two drop, and it will do a good job of attracting removal. Warriors' Lesson and Ordeal of Thassa with Hardened Scales will make it grow super fast.

Battlefield Thaumaturge is great with toshi, as most of your spells target creatures. This way you can chain your removal more easily.

When ~ enters the battlefield, end the game (all players shuffle all cards they own from all zones into their library and shuffle. Then start doing something else.


Too literal? Create a finisher for a deck around Battlefield Thaumaturge.

I think Perilous Research and Ordeal of Thassa belong in a different deck. Maybe one with Auratog and Hatching Plans, I don't know.

Now, something that could be amusing, would be to add black for Profane Command, because with Battlefield Thaumaturge, you just give every creature fear, and X will at least be equal to the number of creatures on the battlefield for free. An evasive army, in addition to the heroic triggers, and whatever you chose for the second mode. It could be amusingly powerful.
