Target creature you control gets +0/+3 and gains hexproof until end of turn. (It can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.)
Dive Down Discussion
4 days ago
I like the deck quite a lot! Not the typical list, and so overall I like it more than the usual red list! :D I would give a word of advise for the basic lands. You don't have many green spells, and so, the basic forest can be a "dead land" when you try to cast your Goblin Chainwhirler . In my case, I haven't been able to cast Niv-Mizzet, Parun with four lands and a Sarkhan, just because I have a basic swamp. Or haven't been able to keep up a blue mana for Dive Down and so, my Niv-Mizzet got killed right away. So I took out the basic swamp :/
I mean, test for it, if it works for you, neat! If it doesn't, don't feel bad about cutting the basic forest for another XG dual. Anyhow, cool deck! Have fun brewing!

Off to a slow start in my Arena plays.
There are three main points to the deck:
DRAW. find the combo. Sprite helps here. Siren helps too when enchanted with curious obsession. I go back and forth with Anticipate and Shimmer of Possibility . I like anticipate's instant speed, but we can dig one deeper with shimmer.
Keep the Paladin alive! at 3 toughness, he dies quick. Sirens and Dive Down save the day.
I can usually get the combo within 7 turns. It's got about a 50/50 win rate so far. It sucks against burn decks that can kill you in 5 turns, and black cards that make you sac creatures. A good sideboard would contain Spell Pierce and Negate .

Personally, I would cut Ritual of Soot . I think that card is way better coming out of the SB, but main-decking it seems a bit risky, unless your local meta is very low-drop heavy.
Just my perspective, but your sideboard looks a little bit like its just more of what your deck already does, and not a toolbox to adjust your deck to better your chances against another matchup. I don't know if things like more copies of Hostage Taker , Ravenous Chupacabra , or even the copy of Quasiduplicate actually help you turn the tables against your worse matchups.
Something like Duress is a staple of SBs for black decks, as it hits control hands hard on T1, and in the current meta you can usually grab something out of mono-Red's hand too. Any of the three cards I mentioned above could also be boarded out for Spell Pierce or more Dive Down , to help you in matchups where your creatures are targeted.

Some possible inclusions include Spell Pierce , Dive Down , and as suggested before Thornbite Staff . The Staff turns your Royal Assassin into a boardwiper as long as the creature is tapped, which shouldn’t be a problem if you run many single cost tap spells. The one problem I see for a future deck like this is control. You will need a win con that is resilient, hard-hitting, and synergistic. I can’t think of anything but Scryfall might be able to help you

Hey, I like this list. I've been working on Tuvasa for a while myself. I find that she's susceptible to removal the turn she is put into play, so I tried to add some things like Blossoming Defense , Dive Down , Hapatra's Mark and a few others of the like. Do you have any suggestions to make her harder to remove early game?

After playing the cancel aspect I decided to toss it entirely as it serves a purpose this deck cant truly really on. As I was playing I really found myself not needing the Wizard's Retort . My Negate served a much better purpose. Yes the cancel came in use sometimes but I felt myself needing better versatility. I've decided to go with the very useful Dive Down and Unsummon in my main board as they are far more versatile and much cheaper cost wise. It really helped the manna curve. I would have really like the Cancel aspect to work but found my side board is more then enough to do what I needed. I've considered removing my Repudiate / Replicate and Spell Pierce from the side board to add in Wizard's Retort . Haven't really had the chance to see my Repudiate / Replicate in action yet so removing it will be a matter of just seeing how it could works. Thanks again.

for aggro I think Invisible Stalker could be a good choice of creature to enchant
Remand is really good to keep the tempo and protect against big stuff
Stubborn Denial is incredible in this deck
Geist of Saint Traft is a monster but cost 3 mana
Unstable Mutation if you want to be REALLY fast take this card
Gryff's Boon make the late game more fair
Path to Exile play 4 it's so freaking good
Stony Silence against tron afinity hardened scaled and artifact deck
Leyline of Sanctity against burn,storm,jund and black deck with discard
Rest in Peace against dredge, control, jund, storm and graveyard deck
card to cut
Bruna, Light of Alabaster incredibly slow card
Banishing Light is 3 cmc which is a lot in a agro deck (we dont want to trade 1 for 1)
Gift of Immortality is slow and pretty much useless because it doesnt bring back the counter or the aura
Grand Abolisher should be in the sideboard for control matchup
Open the Armory I love this card but it's sadly too slow for modern
