Eerie Interlude Discussion
5 days ago
If you are going to an Esper control route with a sub theme of flicker, here might be some cards that can be of use. I'm going to list all the budget ones since you didn't really specify a limit. A fun way you can win though with a lot of manipulation is Approach of the Second Sun!
- Deadeye Navigator
- Eldrazi Displacer
- Felidar Guardian
- Gonti, Lord of Luxury
- Brago, King Eternal
- Reflector Mage
- Eerie Interlude
- Swords to Plowshares
- Arcane Denial
- Mystic Remora
- Altar of the Brood
- Cloud of Faeries
- Conjurer's Closet
- Future Sight
There are plenty of cards that can help, but hope this small tidbit helps!

thanks for the suggestions, yes, those would be great, not sure about the Fumigate, maybe it would be better than Merciless Eviction in some cases, it is cheaper to cast. I blink my stuff with Eerie Interlude and wipe the board with Fumigate gaining a bunch of life. Azor's Elocutors seems very slow, unless you can somehow put more counters on it, but for that to work you need cards dedicated to that and so that's not really an option, even if the plan is to grind the game to a halt, I'll put it in the maybe pile for now. Resplendent Angel looks like a nice addition, I'll see if I can fit it in somewhere. maybe I can fit them all inn somewhere.

Ohhhh, so close with Yeva, Nature's Herald. I had actually looked at her, but unfortunately her text reads "green creatures". How ever, with that "nasty surprise" strategy in mind, I added Elvish Piper and Deathrender in. Protean Hulk, Eldritch Evolution, Pattern of Rebirth and, Birthing Pod (recommended by hkhssweiss) could all be great parts of the "Surprise Package" :). I like looking at it like that!
The flicker strategy would be great to bring more focus to, such a good point. I have an Eerie Interlude. With the amount of board wipes in my metta I was thinking Faith's Reward and Second Sunrise would double as responses and flickers (in a way) for my board-state. I could also use them after sacking Avatar of Growth through Ghave or another trigger. Flickerwisp, Conjurer's Closet and Restoration Angel will definitely get some serious consideration as I work with the final deck list!
Painful Quandary could be such a perfect include and really brings a paint theme to completion, especially if I go the "lands matter's" route with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen as an include. And with that direct pain strategy in mind, Exquisite Bond becomes a huge include. I appreciate the combo potential with Sanguine Bond as well, however at this point it seems like its only reason for being in there would be Exquisite Bond due to the lack of other life gain in here. Huge thanks for the Exquisite Bond idea though - that could be an easy 30 life in a turn, while swinging my opponents down! Awesome.
I think I'll end up working with two different builds of this deck because of different metta's I might play in. One group has less of an enjoyable view for control, so for them I think I'll go "land's matter". However, I really want to work on the control version as well to make a version that is more of a fast, interesting combo deck. I think Bitterblossom could work in the either one, especially with the fuel it gives Ghave and a few other sac engines in here.
Awesome, NeverCloud - your comment definitely helped it evolve a good step! Thanks again.

I'm really loving the deck idea! Maybe add Yeva, Nature's Herald for a nasty surprise when you tempt them while Ob isn't out, then flash him in when they pay costs to do a search (:
-Flickerwisp Conjurer's Closet Eerie Interlude and Restoration Angel can work with creatures like Avatar of Growth to get additional procs of their ETB. There are other flicker options as well if you want to go this route.
For your Maybeboard, looks like you have a few very separate ideas going on. I personally like the black control you've got going, so you could build more on that. Bitterblossom and Mind Slash can be a harsh combo to have out for your opponent(s), especially if you just got rid of their hands with Mindslicer.
Hope this helps!

The redundancy is due to the deck’s high reliance on Ghostway and Eerie Interlude to trigger multiple ETB effects. Compared to Brago which flickers all my creatures during my turn, the said spells allow me to flicker creatures once every turn as long as I have enough mana to re-cast them. I think the idea is worth considering though. Thanks!

Always happy to see some mythology-themed decks! Kestia is a great commander and I feel she's underrated in comparison to the other two out of the C18 precon. I built something similar -- the theme of the deck is Greek mythology, but I borrow more cards from different sets so long as they support the flavour of the deck. You might find some inspiration in it:
Looking at your deck as it is, I think you're doing well in terms of ramp and flavour. You've picked plenty of powerful cards and synergies and they're all on theme.
You could probably shore it up in terms of (reliable) card draw and removal. For instance, more unconditional creature removal like Swords to Plowshares will serve you much better than Reprisal, even if Reprisal is more on theme. Most of the card draw in your deck relies on attacking with enchantment creatures, which is fine, but Bant doesn't have a lot of Haste so maybe consider an extra enchantress or two so you can at least get value out of casting your enchantments. That way if they get removed before you're allowed to untap with them, they've still replaced themselves. Satyr Enchanter is not from Theros but is certainly on theme.
Something to save your board from wraths is also helpful. Eerie Interlude is great in combination with Eidolon of Blossoms, but consider something like Heroic Intervention, Make a Stand, Rootborn Defenses as well. For that matter, a few extra wraths in your own deck would help you reset the board if someone is off to a faster start than you. Hour of Revelation is fairly on theme, as is Wrath of God.
Other considerations you might make are more meta-dependant, like graveyard hate or land destruction. You might not need Rest in Peace or Ghost Quarter in your meta, but it would round out your deck to be better suited against unknown opponents.
All in all, I liked looking through your deck list! Have fun.

fearphage Awesome suggestions. I might side board stony silence for something like Mirri's Guile since there isnt a whole lot of draw on the go and the guy who uses his artifact deck hasn't used it in a while. Birthing Pod I'm on the fence about because of it's cmc and how it interacts with Teeg. I might test it out a few games and see how it goes. Fauna Shamanfor sure. I didnt even think of her while making this. Great back up as well if survival of the fittest gets removed. Eerie Interlude is really interesting. Especially the few ETB creatures I have can benefit from this. Not 100% sure on the Heroic Intervention but I'll test it. And Sylvan Safekeeper seems decent enough. I'll try that out too.

I would swap Exploration for Darksteel Mutation. I would maybe replace the swords with more creature tutors: Birthing Pod and Fauna Shaman. I know pod still is nonbo with Stony Silence, but it's really good.
In terms of protection, I would consider Eerie Interlude, Heroic Intervention, and Teferi's Protection as effectively counterspells to most board wipes. Sylvan Safekeeper is another great protection spell for targeted removal.
