Disappearing Act Discussion

daseeker25 on Pact Swallowing

solarbeam I really like Disappearing Act since it helps bounce abyssal persecutor while countering a spell. Or demonic pact. With this setup I extremely rarely lose to demonic pact trigger. I need more 1-3 cmc blue/black good stuff to help the deck get rolling usually. Or a better tutor than diabolic tutor

Interesting idea...

Have you considered Paradoxical Outcome as a way to save/reuse/find combo pieces? Disappearing Act could also be a very good card for you if you can return a Dowsing Dagger or any of your other creatures.

I did a similar thing in EDH with Archaeomancer and Disappearing Act. Makes me want to try this version!

In your colors Species Gorger and Roaring Primadox both let you get a free bounce back on your upkeep. I also like Quickling as an easy way to bounce things back too. Familiar's Ruse and Disappearing Act are both spells that let you bounce on the cheap too, just in case you could make use of them. I am sure blue has a handful more creatures that function the same way Quickling does, maybe someone else will know what they are.

Thanks! I do enjoy piloting reanimator decks. Mardu is my competitive version currently but esper is quite powerful. I put this together orginally to showcase reanimator synergy with Fabricate. That is now being reworked because fabricate colors are Green, White, Black which lack a discard mechanic outside of gate.

With regard to gearhulks. I build this to minimize the downside of G-PG (make creatures 4/4) Noxious is always good (i run him side)it loses 1 power to scarab and gift. cataclysmic can be useful depending on the matchup and loses 1 toughness. torrential is definitely problematic as long as you find interesting things to flash back, it loses 1 power 2 toughness. This was why i had smaller creatures with cool abilities. The big plus is that you can run Refurbish.

Examples of interesting instants to flashback that are NOT staples...

Time to Reflect. Consign / Oblivion. Failure / Comply. Siren's Ruse. Acrobatic Maneuver. Disappearing Act. Essence Extraction. Farm / Market. Ritual of Rejuvenation. Start / Finish. Tragic Lesson. Pull from Tomorrow. Failed Inspection. Insidious Will... i could keep going but you can see how esper can make things interesting. Nox in play, acrobatic maneuver on nox, draw, reanimate torrential, flashback acrobatic maneuever on nox again, draw a card = lols? These are all instants to make use of torrential. Go nuts!

Just remember you can always board into 1 of 3 different modes. Mode 1... creatures (like the deck i have built). Mode 2... control (like the deck you are intending to make) and finally mode 3... mill with The Scarab God+ Fraying Sanity+ Fleet Swallower+ Embalmer's Tools ...reanimated creatures are zombies. Could be interesting! Hope my passion for reanimator has been insightful lol. Like i said before i enjoy piloting these decks.Esper is very versatile.

Hey jmmeyers96!

I run Disappearing Act over Cancel to double up the counters I get from Minister of Inquiries. I don't much like Censor because it has never really worked out for me and just feels like a dead draw after turn 3.

Also, Familiar's Ruse is a two mana version of Disappearing Act that only accepts creatures.
