Flickerwisp Discussion

Araignee on Goat Token Deck v0.8

Hi! Like your deck, I came across it while looking for improvements to my casual goats :) Not sure how viable this suggestion would be, but when I saw your deck, I thought Kitchen Finks as they add some goats and match your deck colours (tough they are prone to the life-gain hate).

Flickerwisp is also a good card to run in a goat deck :)

Luckily, D&T/Hatebears isn't in the top ten decks, it isn't a real part of the meta with less than a percent of the meta, and your "Heaven on the roam. (Weenie hatebears)" isn't exactly a tuned varient of hatebears either. Your deck also it isn't weenie, but that is beside the point.

Also, "no original content"? I mean, if you are saying everyone plays the exact same hatebears deck, I'd implore you to check that statement, because Death & Taxes has some of the most varients that are still powered enough to see play.

Look at the normal mono-white hatebears builds.

There are some with just Aether Vial, Leonin Arbiter, Blade Splicer, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, and Flickerwisp as the main core cards of the deck, with Path to Exile, and Restoration Angel, etc. Some of these run Eldrazi Displacer and Thought-Knot Seer with Eldrazi Temple and Shefet Dunes for an eldrazi package.

Some of the eldrazi and taxes decks are W/B (Which I find is one of the most common varients), while others want to run Blood Moon/Magus of the Moon and run W/R. Other W/R varients use Lightning Bolt and Simian Spirit Guide to pump out extra damage or a larger threat earlier on. Plenty of these builds run Chalice of the Void, and plenty don't.

One of my favorite varients of hatebears splashes blue. This one runs a tribal theme with Drogskol Captain and goes for a spirit tribal instead of Flickerwisps and Blade Splicer beatdown. It uses spirits because of the power given by Rattlechains with Mausoleum Wanderer and Spell Queller. Of course it runs a full playset of Selfless Spirit and a pair of Cavern of Souls with a single Moorland Haunt to provide extra value. With a full set of Path to Exile, 3-4 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, 4 of Aether Vial, and the playset of Leonin Arbiter the deck is a hatebear deck to be sure, and I love having W/U for sideboards, because it can run Meddling Mage, Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, Negate, and Detention Sphere.

Of course there is G/W Hatebears too! Scavenging Ooze, Gaddock Teeg, Qasali Pridemage, and more for extreme value, but I already went over that prior.

Of course, these are just the two and one color lists, there was a bant one I went against, with Spell Quellers and Collected Company for some of the coolest plays I've seen, and a four color list (GWUB) with human tribal, making it seem like a 5-color humans list, but it ran the set of Leonin Arbiter, and it ran green for Gaddock Teeg, so though it ran Champion of the Parish and enough humans to warrant Cavern of Souls, it wasn't straight human tribal.

All of these lists are playable in the current meta, and none of these are top tier, let alone in the top ten decks, in fact hatebears hasn't been in the top ten for a long time if ever. If you claim you don't think any originality can exist in these decks, you are dead wrong, and if you claim you don't want a deck in the meta, then hatebears is perfect for you. Okay?

Oh yeah! Flickerwisp too ...

Hey you're probably already familiar with therm, but just in case not: Check out Legendxp's excellent Tribal Tech lists (part 1 and part 2).

goblinguiderevealpls on brago the whitewalker: winter orb is coming

i like the idea of Heliod's Pilgrim and Peregrine Drake as i have a copy of both. not sure what to cut for them

Tsabo's Web does tap some of my lands, buts its mainly there as another 2cmc cantrip alongside Wall of Omens and Spreading Seas, its also worth noting i would run Back to Basics if i had one, and web doesnt tap as much of my stuff as Stasis or Winter Orb/Static Orb, and not to mention i can untap the lands affected by web via Cloud of Faeries,Flickerwisp, Felidar Guardian

i wrote out a big thing about Wormfang Manta before i relized that you dont stack multiple turns after each other, you just do one at a time. I will say something like Flickerwisp, Restoration Angel, Felidar Guardian, might be a better toolbox include instead of Medomai the Ageless because of how many cards in your deck do create extra turns. What is your main win condition? just beating face long enough with extra turns? i use Altar of the Brood as my main wincon, and it doesnt seem like you have a non-combat way to win if they can prevent you from attacking.

Perhaps something like Cloudshift or Flickerwisp would be good here to double down on your Golems?

Definitely sideboard Sundering Growth.

You could also try Panharmonicon, though I think your curve is already a little ambitious. Perhaps Kiora's Follower or some other dork might be help there. Fertile Ground and the expensive Birds of Paradise seem like good fits, too.

I think I'd drop 4-6 creatures in favor of removal/disruption. If you get enough tokens down, Dispatch could be awesome. Beast Within is usually pretty useful, too. Cast Out, Seal Away, Oblivion Ring, Celestial Flare, and Journey to Nowhere all offer decent white options.

Chainwhirler is more of a SB card probably it can take the place of Pyroclasm effects Flickerwisp probably should be in the deck but the way I built it I didn’t have a spot for it.

Doesn't Flickerwisp have much more synergy with Restoration Angel and your game plan as a whole than Goblin Chainwhirler?

Also, I'd use Marrow Shards before considering Rain of Blades.
