Cloak of Feathers Discussion

Lightning Bolt is strictly better than Shock , so that's an easy upgrade.

Although Zada, Hedron Grinder isn't a Wizard, I think she works well in supporting your overall goal. By targeting Zada with any of your cheap cantrips, you draw cards equal to the number of creatures you control. The copies aren't cast, but it could also work well with Eye of the Storm. An optimistic example:

You control Zada, Laboratory Maniac , and four creatures; Eye of the Storm has Leap and Expedite currently exiled. You cast Slip Through Space targeting Zada. Have Zada's trigger resolve first, so Slip targets LabMan and the four others (draw 5). Then, your eye trigger resolves. Target Zada with Leap, Expedite, and the newly exiled Slip. Zada copies those to each other creature you control as well, so you each of your three (3) cantrips would target your six (Zada +LabMan + 4 other) creatures, drawing you 18 cards (23 total, counting the first 5 you drew).

If you're looking for more cantrips, there are some functional reprints of cards you're currently playing, namely Cloak of Feathers and Crimson Wisps . Cards such as Renegade Tactics , Cerulean Wisps , and Twisted Image might also prove useful.

Happy brewing!

You're welcome! So I was looking at your list and I had another suggestion, it's something I'm looking at for my Shu deck. Why not swap out Cloak of Feathers for Shimmering Wings? I know it doesn't have the card draw, but I think it could be a better option since it sticks on the field. Also, I finished a budget list for what will eventually be a Shu monk tribal and I'd like your input Beware The Monk!

Fun idea for a pauper general! I never thought of using Lorescale Coatl. Mystic Remora could be a good draw engine for a little while. A few more ways to make Lorescale evasive or have trample might not hurt. Leap or Cloak of Feathers are some other cantrip evasion spells. Aqueous Form, Cloak of Mists, or even Traveler's Cloak could be considered too. Reckless Scholar is another solid looter. Lignify is a good creature answer, which Simic lacks, especially in pauper. Wow, I put down more cards than I thought I would. Hope it sparks some ideas!

You have a lot of weenies. This works well with unblockable but you may want to consider wipes and cards like Night of Souls' Betrayal or Elesh Norn being played early via some graveyard manipulation.

Also consider that they have blockers for your blockable creatures and removal for your unblockable ones. What is your gameplan then? If your blockable creatures aren't threatening to your opponent's creatures as well as the opponent, you may get stalled.

Consider some stronger creature options. Your low CMC is good for a faster clock, but can hinder you when the faster clock results in a slower gameplan.


You are running 10 mana rocks which is quite a bit actually. I'd suggest cutting some, or swapping them. Try Worn Powerstone or Mind Stone for the Keyrune. Maybe work in an equipment subtheme?

Debate keeping wrexial.



Ninjas sometimes have a subtheme of equipment. Just figured I'd recommend a few if you go this route.

You'll want to avoid wipes since you rely on creatures a lot yourself, beyond things like Cyclonic Rift. If you find wipes to be troublesome, try something like Living Death or a mass return-to-hand-from-grave spell.

A draw package is optional. Ponder Preordain Brainstorm are the big three everyone loves to run. I don't know if they really fit this list though.

Lands to consider:

Here is an odd idea which might be appealing. Steal their creatures, attack, and ninjutsu your own in, bouncing their creature and putting yours into play.

If you want to go this way, I can suggest some big ones:

correction: I didn't realise you already had containment membranes, ignore that. also Guttersnipe, Cloak of Feathers and Slip Through Space may be interesting. I'm just listing interesting cards... no idea how to actually bring everything together btw :(
