Ghostly Flicker Discussion

Ruffigan on Pauper EDH Primer

1 day ago

@Podkomorka: That is something I would like to do down the line but I don't think I have enough data currently to rate any tier besides tier 1. I have started gathering decklists on reddit and users who have commented here on this primer but I have not compiled them into a list yet. If we could get more discussion going on what decks people think are best and what decks people have problems playing against I think we could get the skeleton of a tier list assembled. If you have any suggestions I would be glad to have them.

Formulating a banned list is something I would also like to do. The only card that comes to mind currently is Ghostly Flicker and I don't even think that is too bad considering you need to assemble a small Rube Goldberg contraption to get it back as well as graveyard hate and creature exile effects making it unlikely to last more than a turn or two.

SaberTech on Alla Board the Wizard Express

I wasn't really advocating that Inalla be wizard tribal, I was just curious if I was missing something that made Inalla particularly relevant to the deck. I agree that there aren't many interactions that wizards offer her at a cEDH level. Dualcaster Mage and Ghostly Flicker let Inalla spew out infinite 2/2 hasty wizards, but that is all I can think of at the moment.

I feel as if blink cards could work well in this deck, like Ghostly Flicker and the oh so infamous Deadeye Navigator, since Inalla is based off of ETB's

Hm.. If i throw in Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat, the Champion wizards become infinite win-combos with Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar.

Also if I throw in Ghostly Flicker and Essence Flux (both cards good on their own in this deck), I can go Infinite with Dualcaster Mage at instant speed by casting and copying an opponent's black Tutor twice, tutoring those cards and making Infinite Dualcaster triggers and tutoring my library for any win con and control

I love this deck! As others have said, your commander is holding you back. If I were you, I'd make your commander Mairsil, the Pretender when he comes out on the 25th of August. He is SOOOOO versatile in this deck, with stuff like Eater of Hope or Razaketh or Bident of Thassa or whatever. You would just need some flicker stuff like Conjurer's Closet, Ghostly Flicker, etc to really abuse the ETB ability on Mairsil, and then you'd just need to swap out some non-relevant creatures for stuff with an activated ability.

I hope that helps! Mention me if I can be of assistance.

(Also, Vicious Shadows is a stud. So it Goblin Welder. Put both of them in if you can find them!)

Hello again! I'm on mobile currently so my help might be minimal for now.

I do not like Forbid. It's way too much of a disadvantage.

I think you can cut back on a lot of instants by adding this mini combo. Run Archaeomancer/Mnemonic Wall/Scrivener and Ghostly Flicker/Displace in order to get cast triggers repeatedly. You then can even run a mini ETB package with creatures such as AEther Adept, Mulldrifter, Ingot Chewer, and Faultgrinder.

Also you can use Vedalken AEthermage to grab Talrand, Sky Summoner.

Maybe that could be a direction to take.

RazortoothMtg on Help with Inalla ETB

I did forget about Flameshadow Conjuring. That reminded me of Minion Reflector, which also does basically the same thing. Probably gonna add them.

I did end up adding Dualcaster Mage, because I'm gonna end up adding more spellss (mostly tutors) soon, and he goes infinite with the Ghostly Flicker I just added. Flicker is good with him and without him because of all the ETB effects in the deck.

I do need to add removal. Pretty sure I have 0 removal other than the Voidmage Prodigy and Counterspell, so Vandalblast seems good. Should probably add some more removal and utility spells like Rakdos Charm, Dreadbore, Terminate, etc. Is there anything you would suggest cutting?

Thanks again for the help Talonisnthavingit

Both Halimar Depths and Sage of Epityr would work a lot better, if you had some way of shuffling your library.

Also, you don't need Hornet Queen to be in play, as much as you need to make it enter play. So... how about some blink? Could be something like Ghostly Flicker, or (if you splash white) Restoration Angel. As long as it's instant-speed blink, it serves double purpose as defense.
