xyr0s on Puck out! (Flicker deck)

8 hours ago

I don't think you need "constant flicker". Every time you blink something, you gain approximately 1 card in advantage (depending on circumstances). Blinking something to avoid a lightning bolt? You just made your opponent lose a piece of removal. If it was targetting a creature with an ETB, you just got a very real advantage. You gain about 8 cards advantage over the course of a game, of all your blinks come up, with possible additional cardadvantage when you blink a Blade Splicer in time to have extra blockers, and thereby kill more attackers, or other trickes like that.

But your opponent would be unwilling to take any chances, if he can see the blink right there on the table.

I think I've said it before, but the upgrade your deck really could use, is 4 Aether Vial.

@ lagotripha Thank you very much for your comment! I will consider Blade Splicer since it is (strictly) better than Glint-Sleeve Artisan. I decided against Nest Invader but am reconsidering it now... What would you cut for it? I mainly put in Felidar Guardian to be able to flicker my enchantments - I do not know a cheaper (CMC) alternative to do this and I definitely want to keep the enchantments in the deck. Cheers!

I'll quitely reccomend Grove of the Guardian instead of Armada Wurm, as its unlikely to be cast in most games when the rest of your deck is so aggressive. Your flicker effects mostly hit creatures, so the Trial/Carthouche is unlikely to be fantastic unless you Cloudstone Curio combo it up, or go all in on Ajani's Chosen type token/enchantment synergy. If you can find them Blade Splicer is a fantastic, aggressive option that plays in to a token artifact strategy, and is readily backed by Sundering Growth type proliferate effects and cloudshift. Countless Gears Renegade, Genesis Chamber, Hangarback Walker, Knight-Captain of Eos/Druid's Deliverance, Nest Invader, Servo Schematic Thraben Inspector, Tireless Tracker, etc all play well into this strategy, and combined with some value artifact sacrifice or artifact matters effects like Dispatch a very aggressive game is possible.

Have a look at Trostani, Selesnya's Voice EDH to get a better idea of the cards out there, then adjust for your meta. Can't really reccomend more than that.

rothgar13 on Puck out! (Flicker deck)

I think the whole angle is asking a bit too much of your manabase. The deck this is most similar to (Kiki Chord) has enough trouble balancing , , and . The Akroma trick is also more cute than it is effective. I would cut the Akroma and the Eldrazi, clean up the manabase, and play flicker enablers like Flickerwisp, as well as payoff cards like Blade Splicer, Eternal Witness, and Pia and Kiran Nalaar (Thragtusk is also an option if you want to go a bit bigger). Also, Cloudshift should really be Eerie Interlude or Ghostway (note the synergy between either card and E-Wit).

Vman on Puck out! (Flicker deck)

(played all games without sideboarding either decks)

Liliana's Rogue

Modern Vman


Game 1: got to keep removing Birds of Paradise constantly with hand disruption-removal and sac effect from Gatekeeper of Malakir and it was a stomp after that (THIS IS A PROBLEM)

Game 2: flickered Blade Splicer twice and got my hand controlled by Thought-Knot Seer drawing a land after. that card is alot better than i initially expected.

drew my Phyrexian Obliterator in response though and dragged the game out a bit. im not sure if my friend wouldve played the same way as you wouldve but he made the right call letting me sac your stuff to rid obliterator and let Eternal Witness save the day. my deck lost.

Game 3: an early Sagu Mauler was beating me down and i couldnt use my Gatekeeper of Malakir to get it sac'd because of the freaking birds, myLiliana, Heretical Healer  Flipwith a lashwrithe traded blows to keep me alive though untill i got to turn it into the planeswalker side and win via revive Sidisi, Undead Vizier to get a second Phyrexian Obliterator (the first one got exiled) Akroma, Angel of Fury WAS on the field to trade with obliterator but i had a lucky Dismember to make her a 1/1 for trample win VERY CLOSE GAME that went quite a bunch of turns.

Game 4: Was a weird game where i had mostly Fatal Push gatekeeper and a lonely Bitterblossom to build up tokens. kept killing ramp and slowly poked you to death.

game 5:Thought-Knot Seer comes out super early and gets flashed back by Restoration Angel asap. my hand gets crippled and i proceed to lose the game with nothing but my cant block for shit Bloodghasts out to watch.

The deck is actually pretty good,with a little luck in the opening hand it rolls really strong. but the thing i noticed is that it does get disrupted quite easily. Akroma, Angel of Fury doesnt seem like the strongest card for its value maybe? sure it hits like a truck and has semi protection but white and blue arent the scariest colors when it comes to killing beaters. it does dodge Dismember tho so thats something.

Wall of Omens im iffy about. sure when flickered you get to draw even more but its only a 0/4 though. is it really worth the slot?

iv been playing with Westvale Abbey  Flip in my deck, its not the strongest card nor do you flip it very often (rarely actually) but it does provide an additional win con lategame when you can afford to sac the Birds of Paradise and whatnot.

you removed Stonehorn Dignitary which i can see why, but it does somewhat improve the aggro matchup in my opinion, maybe secret sideboard tech?

anyway, thats all i have man. thanks for sharing your decklist on my post its a great deck and hella fun to play. best of luck

xaerusblade on Puck out! (Flicker deck)

Firebones675 Yes. I will definitely look into it. Also a question, as my deck stands would it be wise to remove 1 Wall of Omens in favor of a Blade Splicer?

Also i was thinking of replacing my 2 Restoration Angel with 2 Felidar Guardian and taking my Verdurous Gearhulk and 1 Cloudshift for 2 Panharmonicon

Firebones675 yes tha Panharmonicon is really a neat card. But now i am confuse on what to remove. And it would really shoot my mana curve. My original plan was to surprise them with big creatures. I have also included 2 Blade Splicer i would really love to have the 3rd 1 but i can't justify putting only 1 akroma or 1 Sagu Mauler. As they are really strong against single removals. I would like to get rid of Eternal Witness but given its usefulness in the late game i would rather keep at least 1. So my problem is how to incorporate the panharmonicon and at 1 (?) More blade splicer.
