Ghostly Flicker Discussion

SaltySpecula on Immediate Flicker in any colour.

6 days ago

Hey Folks!

I'm looking to slowly piece together a Ramos deck for when Ramos comes out later this year and I'm trying to get a short list of Flicker cards.

Here are the restrictions I've got:

1: Must flicker and return to the board IMMEDIATELY. No flickers that return at end of turn/start of next turn.

2: Must work on Legendary Artifacts and/or Legendary Creatures.

3: No colour restrictions.

Due to the fact that Flicker really doesn't have a fixed searchable mechanic word like Lifelink or Menace, it's not as easy to search for. These are the ones I have so far:

Have I missed any? Any other suggestions?

Oh right, Felidar is immediate return. Well, I'll just let you know that Ghostly Flicker is a gamechanger for me. If you use it on Eternal Witness, she can put Ghostly Flicker right back into your hand, so you can reuse it. Paired with Mystic Snake, you'll be hard to stop unless someone has a counter.

It depends on how many creatures you want to flicker. If you just want a couple you could play Ghostly Flicker, Displace or Essence Flux. If you want to do it more than once play Deadeye Navigator or Nephalia Smuggler.

Looking at your card choices (outside of the Tundra), I assume you're on something of a budget. With that in mind, some must-adds:

AEtherling, Angel of Serenity, Archaeomancer, Cloudblazer, Deadeye Navigator, Eldrazi Displacer, Karmic Guide, Mistmeadow Witch, Mulldrifter, Reflector Mage, Saltskitter (so good with Ephara!), Stonecloaker, Stonehorn Dignitary, Venser, Shaper Savant, Whitemane Lion, Azorius Signet, Darksteel Ingot, Detention Sphere, Counterspell, Ghostly Flicker, Momentary Blink, Sphinx's Revelation, Rite of Replication

I know that's a lot, but I noticed a good number of cards in your list that are pretty low-impact. Once you've taken yours for a few spins, you should be able to figure out what cuts to make.

I wouldn't call this deck oversized, unless you can't shuffle it without assistance. 60 is just the bare minimum for a deck, and there is no maximum, again, only with the above restriction, mainly because Battle of Wits is a card. Although, yes, with a bigger deck, it's much less likely you will be able to draw a card needed for a particular situation.

Eerie Interlude and Ghostly Flicker are both nice flicker spells. So is Venser, the Sojourner.

You also can try out Mechanized Production as an alt wincon.

Just so you are aware, Prophet of Kruphix is banned. As for other blinky cards you could run things like Eerie Interlude, Ghostly Flicker, and Ghostway. And if you want to be that guy you could always run the Food Chain combo. It works better with Tazri than any other commander and is very powerful. Other recommendations would be Worldly Tutor, Wild Pair, Diabolic Tutor and Descendants' Path to help get stuff for free and get what you need.

Gross, gonna get lots of aggro with this commander but shes dang good

No Fatestitcher?

Also, in any "tap" commander deck,Thousand-Year Elixir is nuts, as are flickers/untaps like Cloudshift, Essence Flux, Ghostly Flicker and especially Tawnos's Coffin

I really like this direction of uw, seems a lot stronger and more forgiving to draft. It plays well with the rest of the cube and there is definitly room for some crazy stuff in the colour pair!Potential addition

Aerie Mystics good splash in fliers

Warden of Evos Isle duh

Thunderclap Wyvern this is just good

Drogskol Reaver high, high end of the fliers deck, good with equipment

What do you think of a blink subtheme? It works well with some of the cards already in the cube and with these additions i think it could be cool. Adding some blink would make it so that both wx and ux could go in that direction and bring more depth to The cube. Exampels Conjurer's Closet

Ghostly Flicker

Momentary Blink

Deadeye Navigator

Eerie Interlude

Mistmeadow Witch

Roon of the Hidden Realm

There are more but these are the ones i came up with off the top of my head.

To clarify, i'm not saying that we should make an archetype out of this, just that it could be good value in the cube. Since most of the blink spells doubles as protection i could see them go into multiple decks.

I like the cuts and I could also see trimming the number of high end artifacts. Just to smooth out the cube.
