Blink of an Eye Discussion

Hey, Gideon of the Trials is a house right now for control he's another win condition. I suggest 1-2x Gideon cutting 1x Approach or 1x Cast Out or both. With so much card advantage with Teferi, Azcanta, Glimmer and Gearhulk you only need one Approach. If you're afraid of the one Approach getting countered then play a second copy in the sideboard for matchups where you'll expect to see counter magic.

I think Settle is the best board wipe for control right now because of Teferi and Gearhulk. Settle is instant this allows you to take advantage of Teferi's +1 ability of untapping two lands. Teferi has taken over the five drop spot of the mana curve this conflicts with Fumigate where as Settle can be cast before Teferi and this play can be quite devastating to your opponent. Gearhulk can flash back Settle. Fumigate is still a good card for control, but I see it more as a sideboard card than main deck. Consider 3-4x Settle and 2x Fumigate with 1x more Fumigate in the sideboard?

Vehicles and Scrapheap Scrounger are huge right now and they are a pain in the ass for control to deal with, they're Fumigate proof, but not Settle proof another reason Settle is the better spell right now.

If you're looking for an upgrade to Caracal I suggest 2x Lyra Dawnbringer. In some matchups she's extremely hard to deal with requiring two removal spells to kill her. Even getting one attack in with her is enough to stabilize, she's good. Red Aggro is now playing black mostly to stop Lyra.

A sideboard plan of 3-4x History of Benalia is something to consider. This card is good in control matchups because your opponent will board out creature removal. Sagas also give you something for free with History you get a 2/2 Knight and a +2/+1 pump of all Knights for no additional mana cost. This is excellent for control getting something without having to pay mana letting you leave up counter magic. Control matchups are long draw out games, this is good for Sagas.

I like a couple of 1 of catch-alls for the main deck: Blink of an Eye and Commit // Memory. These bounce spells are versatile nice to have and Memory is crazy to cast from grave or flashback with Gearhulk especially if you have a Teferi emblem.

Good luck with your deck.

That is correct.

Walking Ballista is on the Stack. So it hasn't entered the battlefield yet.

You cast Blink of an Eye, put it on the stack, wait till it resolves and the Winding Constrictor is return to opponents hand.

Now the Walking Ballista resolves, enters the battlefield and as Winding Constrictor isn't on the battlefield any more its ability can't trigger.

Thanks for the responses guys! That helps a lot.

What about me playing Blink of an Eye in response to someone casting Walking Ballista while they have a Winding Constrictor on the battlefield? If I Blink the Constrictor in response to the Ballista being cast, then the ability for the Constrictor never triggers, right? Because Constrictor isn't on the battlefield when Ballista enters?

Thank you again

Hey everyone, I am just now getting back into standard after not having played for 5 years. With that being said, I have some questions about card interaction that I was hoping you all could answer (seeing as I know a lot of people here are actively playing at FNMs and probably some of you are even rule judges). Thank you!

Thank you!

I agree with Kappalauzius to add Bontu's Monument to the main board as the card gives you some sustain and helps you flood the board faster with your rats.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh is a decent card but I think I would skip as you don't need as it functions a more of a "win more" card from what I can see.

I do highly recommend counters in the main board like Syncopate that can be used to counter the board wiping threats in spell or creature form. In the side I would add copies of bounce like Blink of an Eye to remove cards like Ixalan's Binding or Gideon's Intervention that can shut you down if you did not have a counter for them when they were cast.

Best of luck with the deck.

Hexaflexagon yeah! After testing I realised I need some bounce removal and felt a little heavy on lands. Updated. -1 Field of Ruin, -1 Memorial to Genius +2 Blink of an Eye +1 Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage +1 Shalai, Voice of Plenty -2 Censor

Into the Roil/Blink of an Eye does a decent budget impression of CCommand, if you're feeling that you need that. I mean, it won't ever be Cryptic, but also costs $30 less...

multimedia This is good stuff, thank you. Would you run Glimmer of Genius at all? I like the idea of instant speed scry and card draw but is seems it may not fit. I know I have a few ways to draw/ control my draws from The Locust God, Blink of an Eye, Search for Azcanta  Flip and the planeswalkers, but is that enough? I'm scared of running dry mid in the game. Would dropping one Oath of Teferi be a good idea to add either another planeswalker or removal?
