An unblockable Cephalid Constable with power boosting equips is absolutely devastating.

Your mana base would probably be more efficient if you replace some of the rocks with green sorcery ramp, which also thin the deck.

Sword of the Animist, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Druids' Repository, and Nature's Will are other good ways to ramp. Bower Passage and Dense Canopy are good to bypass blockers if there are lots of fliers in your meta.

Coastal Piracy draws more cards. With all the cards you draw, Meishin, the Mind Cage can lock down the board while Assault Formation lets your creatures deal damage.

Larceny will stop your opponents from doing stuff. Blinding Angel could be useful to prevent retaliation. Quietus Spike is helpful as backup to Raving Dead. Cabal Executioner and Cephalid Constable can destroy your opponents' boards, especially with something to pump the Constable after no blockers are declared.

A good trick you could try is Mirror Entity to pump your forces after no blockers are declared. Gigantomancer is more mana-efficient if you only have a few creatures.

Not quite sure how effective your energy subtheme is, but Empyreal Voyager would benefit from getting pumped as well.

You could probably cut some of the mill cards like Paranoid Delusions, Mirko Vosk, and Startled Awake, unless you want to run some reanimation like Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni.

Heyo, you made a comment on my iteration of my deck on MTGS, and I thought I could share the kindness. I have a copy of my deck on here, but I'm striving for active feedback, and Tappedout is not always the best place for such things.

I would probably replace something with a Gilded Drake. It comes down earlier than Control Magic. You can bounce Drake with a Mistblade Shinobi, or Cephalid Constable. It's a permanent shift, so they can't use Enchantment removal to retrieve it. Finally, your general helps get around the drake on their end.

Military Intelligence should replace a 2-Drop. It often times works as cheaper and less efficient Coastal Piracy, yet it's a 2 drop that can often draw 5-6 extra cards a game.

Finally, I've noticed you're much heavier in the Counter-suite than me, but you're really lacking in ways to Counter abilities. I would probably drop a card for Stifle, and a creature for Nimble Obstructionist . Both play into your counter heavy strategy. Granted, they can help nullify planeswalker, etb, on cast, etc. You don't seem to have that much to mitigate those effects.

Thanks again for your help, if you want to share ideas feel free to send me a message. I love deck theorizing, but it make take me a bit to get back.

Solid decklist! I really like Cephalid Constable, Ixidron and Tempting Licid. Have you considered running a Vesuvan Shapeshifter? It can flip back over after an Ixidron ETB, copies Den Protector on flip for a repeatable Eternal Witness effect, and, of course, clone effects are neat-o!

Tempting Licid is definitely awesome though, I haven't seen that card before. How does it perform in your games?

Tyrant-Thanatos on Does Quicksilver Dagger trigger player ...

Not in this case, no. Cephalid Constable very specifically says "deals combat damage to a player". Quicksilver Dagger will cause the constable to deal damage to a player, but effect-based damage is never combat damage.

If you were to put Quicksilver Dagger on something like Order of Yawgmoth, which specifically reads "deals damage to a player", then it would work.

Shliken on Does Quicksilver Dagger trigger player ...

So I've been working on a combo that would use say Quicksilver Dagger on a Cephalid Constable. Would tapping him for that one damage also allow me to put a target permanent back to the opponent's hand? If you know any way could you link me to the rule text?

Welcome back,

I have found a great interaction with Aluren & Vizier of the Menagerie it allows you to play creatures of 3 cmc or less from your deck without paying mana cost, sure Vizier doesn't trigger Ezuri but i think it's good enough of an effect.

I'm going to test Path of Discovery, It looks promising.

Herald of Secret Streams, close to a must have.

Cephalid Constable this thing is evil when it connect

Walking Ballista , Thrasios, Triton Hero , Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip good target with the enormous quantity of mana produceable with or without combo,like Crystalline Crawler , Gyre Sage and Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip.

Things I wish i had to test it, but pretty sure it's good Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip and Hadana's Climb  Flip
