Faerie Impostor Discussion

I am looking at giving them a try in modern with some mill theme shenanigans while poking and prodding with small, evasive creatures. Most of what I am considering right now are faeries (Oona's Blackguard and Faerie Impostor, for example) and getting multiple Thieves' Guild Enforcers online, especially with Phantasmal Image seems to me to be able to play a solid game, at least against decks without many creatures.

Balaam__ if you're on a tighter budget, you could consider using Faerie Impostor or Faerie Miscreant, imposter relies a lot on Aether Vial though, so it really comes down to testing out different variation ideas that work for you... this is a semi-competitive deck build, so it has a fairly hefty price tag on it, but I put a lot of time and care into building this particular deck, and I've had it for a while and got many of the cards at a lower cost so it wasn't as big of an investment as it would be now. I also am not too familiar with some of the latest cards out now, but maybe there is something new you could find to substitute cards you don't have.

First of all Shroud has been phased out in favor of Hexproof - even though that is not what you want for this thing. Second, I agree with WizardOfTheNorthernCoast that shroud + indestructible + cannot be sacrificed makes it near impossible to interact with, which is not good. You can just try to outpace / out RNG the sacrifice count.

You need a bounce cost Faerie Impostor or a Merciless Eviction to get rid of it (well rid is so and so with the Faerie).

Not a fan of this card.

Probably no: Dream Eater at 6 mana is too expensive. Faerie Impostor forces a different creature, defeating the self-bounce. Aven Riftwatcher is good for quick lifegain but doesn't do enough.

On the fence: Abundance. Yes, it's helpful, but at 4 mana, does it do enough? It would help in a pinch, but how often would I truly use it?

Easy Yes: Aluren, Sylvan Library, Cloudstone Curio.

you should put Aven Riftwatcher in, you can just bounce it for hella lifegain with creatures like Dream Eater andFaerie Impostor or if you run Aluren with Cloudstone Curio. also Abundance and Sylvan Library combo really well with Chulanes abilities

Barbarian_Sun_Pope: I think the issue with all of the cards you suggested is that they are either too situational or lacking a bit in power level. Charming Prince outshines Deputy of Acquittals , Aviary Mechanic & Faerie Impostor . Return to the Ranks doesn't get enough of my creatures back and Brought Back & Eerie Interlude can be hard to setup properly. Selfless Spirit does a better job at protecting my board against the most strategies overall. I still appreciate the time you took to give feedback though!

Hmm ... Brought Back and Return to the Ranks are the first cards that come to mind with this ETB theme. They give some insurance for your creatures. Eerie Interlude is a pretty nice repeat effect once you've established a board. Deputy of Acquittals (flash) and Aviary Mechanic / Faerie Impostor (easier to cast) can also provide a bit more bounce for very little mana. Hope this helps.

Faerie Macabre is spectacular sideboard tech. Faerie Miscreant / Faerie Impostor are solid 1 drops Glint-Sleeve Siphoner offers a budget bob thats a rogue- and lets you run an energy counters/proliferate/+1+1 counters subtheme
