Cephalid Constable Discussion

Akujiki on I'm Bringing Sexy Back unblockable infect

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

I have a Rafiq with Swords build which might have been like your old offensive deck. The allstars of my deck are the ones that have triggers when they deal combat damage like: Augury Adept, Cephalid Constable, Cold-Eyed Selkie, Daring Saboteur, Daxos of Meletis, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, and Medomai the Ageless - with double strike all their triggers happen twice :-)

Also you should consider Stonehewer Giant cause you can attack then tutor and equip for two mana!!

I also like Brass Squire for fun combat tricks

Check out my deck if you'd like.

Cephalid Constable is just mean with unblockable (and pump effects like cage the sun / gauntlet of power, etc)

Thada Adel, Acquisitor or Sphinx Ambassador use your opponent's deck against themselves

Deepfathom Skulker as another Coastal Piracy or Bident of Thassa effect

Hey @Adam_Dills, thanks for the upvote and comment!

Thanks for looking at my list and for the suggestions. I should elaborate my meta: it is rampant with fast combo, stax, and all tier 1/2 cedh builds. While Trinket Mage is a fine card (and even better so in my paper list where I run Sensei's Divining Top+Counterbalance combo), tapping out for a 3 mana creature that doesnt tutor a combo piece doesn't cut it. It would be stronger if i were running Pithing Needle, Relic of Progenitus, Skullclamp and top.

Lightning Greaves is a great addition to the list that is always on the fence. It comes in and out. The list currently doesnt use voltron to win very often so it's power level is decreased. If i had more combat oriented duedes such as Cephalid Constable, Medomai the Ageless, Serra Ascendant and/or Dragonlord Ojutai it would be a more worthy inclusion.

As far as Mirari's Wake goes, i love that card and i play it in my naya tokens list, which is more casual than this one. Unfortunately my meta is too fast to play a 5 mana enchantment that doesnt do anything the first turn it comes down. You mentioned speed being a factor for trinket mage, however this deck plays the exact opposite: because it is much slower than the fast combo decks I play against, I need to outlast the game and put them on my pace via proactive control elements such as Rest in Peace, Kataki, War's Wage, and Containment Priest. This deck wins around turns 6-8 in a 4 mana pod.

Glad to hear there are still other people still interested in rafiq in a more competitive setting. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I'm glad to hear my list has helped, I should have a primer up in the near future :)

Cephalid Constable can do a lot of work - protection gets him through.

Voidmage Prodigy is very mana intensive. Supreme Inquisitor feasible, but not consistent. Barrin, Master Wizard for Cephalid Constable?

@wraithen2k - I actually used to run Cephalid Constable in a much earlier version of this deck. In that incarnation, Constable never really impressed. However, I was not running Champion of Lambholt or Whirler Rogue at that time. It may very well be time for Constable to squeeze its way back in. Thanks for bringing this gem back to mind! :)
