smackjack on Notable cards when drafting Innistrad?

8 hours ago

quesobueno123 I never drafted Innistrad so im not very sure about the limited format, but i guess Think Twice, Spectral Flight, Spare from Evil, Selfless Cathar, Doomed Traveler, Delver of Secrets  Flip, Spectral Rider, Invisible Stalker, Curiosity and Fiend Hunter are good cards..

I win through combo, but I don't want too many combos. When there are too many different combos, it dilutes the deck and I draw into too many random cards that don't interact with anything else. For that reason, I do not play Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion.

I already have 3 effects for Ivy Lane Denizen, and I don't really need a fourth.

Tooth and Nail is only good if I play the Mike&Trike combo.

Altar of the Brood is just a bad version of Altar of Dementia.

I don't really need or want Gift of Immortality. I don't have very much reanimation because this is not a reanimator deck, but I do have some for utility purposes, and they do a better job than Gift of Immortality.

I used to play Teysa, Orzhov Scion as my commander before I decided Ghave was more fun. She requires a different, though similar, strategy, and usually wins with Blasting Station, which I already cut because it wasn't an effective sac outlet in this deck.

Genesis Wave doesn't do much here without much ramp. I doubt I'll ever cast it for more than 10, and that's the absolute max. GWave needs to be at least 20 to be effective.

The cards from your suggestions I'm considering are Falkenrath Noble, Fiend Hunter, and Academy Rector. It's always nice to have a second Blood Artist and I feel like I can do some perma-exile shenanigans with Fiend Hunter.

Academy Rector is a bit iffy because it's pricey, and has a conditional effect. I may get it at some later point, but probably no time soon.

also Fiend Hunter and Sun Titan plus sac outlet equals infinite death loop for Blood Artist or Falkenrath Noble

you could also run Altar of the Brood just incase of blood artist dying early game.

just as a good card suggestion Academy Rector looks like a really big help in this deck as well. good utility.

Ah, infinite loop Karmic Guide and Fiend Hunter that's a good idea as well. I guess I'll cut one of the sorcery speed sacs then.

Actually, an ideal hand would be anything containing Goblin Bombardment, Buried Alive, and a little mana acceleration.

Just drop Karmic Guide and Fiend Hunter/Faceless Butcher in your graveyard, swing with Alesha reanimating Karmic Guide reanimating one of the other two, and proceed to win the game off of a sacrifice loop. Blasting Station would work too in a pinch.

Fiend Hunter doesn't do anything as it enters the battlefield. "As ~ enters the battlefield" denotes a replacement effect that modifies how the permanent enters.

Fiend Hunter has a triggered ability that triggers when Fiend Hunter enters the battlefield. It uses the stack, and players can respond to it.

Your hand, assuming that you played it correctly. Basically, the ideal play in this instance would likely be to let your opponent's Fiend Hunter resolve. The Hunter's ability triggers, and your opponent targets Chasm Skulker with it. In response, before that ability has a chance to resolve, you cast Quickling. Assuming that your opponent does nothing, the Quickling will resolve and its ability will trigger. Since that ability is at the top of the stack, it resolves first (allowing you to return the Skulker to your hand). The Hunter's ability then tries to resolve, but gets countered by the game rules because all of its targets have been made illegal (since the Skulker is no longer on the battlefield, it is no longer a targetable creature).

Ok so I have Chasm Skulker out. My opponent brings in Fiend Hunter which gets to exile a creature as it enters the battlefield but I cast Quickling to return chasm skulker to my hand.

Does skulker get exiled or does it come back to my ha d. Thanks.
