Faerie Miscreant Discussion

Kogarashi on When do ninjutsu effects trigger?

2 months ago

As a note, ninjutsu itself doesn't trigger. It's an activated ability. The requirements to be able to activate it are that you must have an attacking creature that hasn't been blocked. This means you can't activate ninjutsu until the declare blockers step, and you have through the end of combat step to do so, when your attackers are no longer officially attacking. However, as long as you have priority during any of those steps, you can activate ninjutsu, so you could use Quickling to bounce your blocked Mistblade Shinobi and then use the Mistblade's ninjutsu ability to swap it with Faerie Miscreant.

And as DragonKing90 said, while first strike can cause the combat phase to have two combat damage steps, the combat phase will only have one declare blockers step no matter what, so using ninjutsu will not reset that.

mfogle on When do ninjutsu effects trigger?

An extremely specific example that creates a step by step analysis for how "fast" ninjutsu effects are:

Assume you have 2 creatures on the field; Mistblade Shinobi and Faerie Miscreant. You also have a Quickling and a Ninja of the Deep Hours in your hand with plenty available mana.

You declare both creatures are attacking, then the opponent declares he will block Mistblade Shinobi but not Faerie Miscreant.

You then play Quickling with flash and return the Mistblade Shinobi to your hand with Quickling etb effect, removing the Mistblade Shinobi from combat before damge is dealt.

From there, can you pay the ninjutsu cost for Mistblade Shinobi and return the Faerie Miscreant to your hand within that same combat?

The second part to this question is whether ninjas are ninjutsu'd in before the damage step (after declare blockers) or afterwards, so that the ninja's and the unblocked attacker's damage are both applied?

If the latter is the case can a second ninjutsu be activated after the first has dealt damage?

Finally, once a ninjutsu is used, and the ninja is summoned (tapped and attacking), does the opponent get to declare blockers again?

Apologies for the long explanation, but i felt it necessary to avoid confusion.

A bit of card draw could really smooth this out, I think. Latchkey Faerie works super well with Tetsuko, and Faerie Miscreant is a straight upgrade to Nightshade Stinger. You're probably going fast enough if you can stick a Stinkdrinker Bandit, but in the (likely) case it gets removed, you'll want to draw into more gas. Love seeing some Rogue love, though. Such a fun tribe!

For the 1-drop, I think Faerie Miscreant or Vampire Cutthroat would be awesome.

Faerie Miscreant also has added synergy with Spellstutter Sprite, and you can also copy it with Sakashima's Student. Although the whole tech with miscreant doesn't appear extremely optimal on paper, you can do some pretty neat things with it.

I'm currently working on a Yuriko deck as well and I'm trying to incorporate Doomsday with turns so I can take a couple routes if I want. One Doomsday pile would be fairly standard in the sense that I would use Laboratory Maniac and deck out, or I could go an alternate direction and use Nexus of Fate with a discard engine to take infinite turns while draining my opponents for 7 life each turn. For consistency's sake I might up focusing on one of these routes rather than including both, but the more I'm toying with this commander the more I'm liking her because there are lots and lots of interesting combos she's capable of dishing out.

I was thinking about a deck like yours and I obviously know what there is behind the choice of the 1drops, but i really can't get the Faerie Miscreant. I was trying the slower but recursive Nether Traitor.

What do you think about it?

So I like the list, but I think it would run smoother as more a copy of Izzet Delver with a black splash, so instead of the Lavarunner and Alchemist I’d go with Faerie Miscreant and Ninja of the Deep Hours. Also Chainer's Edict instead of Diabolic.

Ninjitus is a fun mechanic, and this seems to be a fairly solid list. I might consider replacing one of your evasive creatures with Faerie Miscreant. In addition to being a 1-mana flyer, you can abuse its card draw ability by bouncing copies and replaying them.
