Glaring Spotlight Discussion

Oooh I love Zada, such great value out of tiny spells and creatures.

I know space can be a bit tight with this kind of deck but I feel that she is especially vulnerable to targeted removal so I would double down on the hexproofing:Champion's Helm and/or Glaring Spotlight I think are your cheapest options mana wise for this.

Nice deck! Definitely deserves a +1. I second azrath7's comment though, that some tutors wouldn't be amiss. I'd replace Glaring Spotlight with something like Aqueous Form or Helm of the Ghastlord. I don't think Spellbinder should be in here either, unless you'd add some more instants. I'd replace this with Sensei's Divining Top to augment your scrying abilities.

In case you have the cash for it, replace Regal Behemoth with Mana Reflection, which also allows you to receive double mana from your artifact sources. I like Edric, Spymaster of Trest, but personally I think Notion Thief is much better.

Happy gaming!

Thinking about putting Glaring Spotlight in my sideboard simply because Hexproof really messes with the bounce/disruption aspect of this deck. The ability to give my creatures Hexproof and make them unblockable for a turn also really fits, as I used Unsummon during the tournament to create opportunities to attack just as much as I used it to defend. What do you guys think?

Maybe the War Elemental because it seems too conditional and the Glaring Spotlight since i don't ever run hexproof creatures and I'm the only person you play. Just the opinion of the lesser player though.

Good suggestion jgillz!

I think that I want to add in Aqueous Form, Cloak of Mists, Steel of the Godhead, Tricks of the Trade, Glaring Spotlight, Whispersilk Cloak, Rogue's Passage, and Cloak of Invisibility. Maybe Thassa, God of the Sea and/or Sun Quan, Lord of Wu. Thoughts? What would I take out besides Melira, Sylvok Outcast?

And Inkmoth Nexus is a bit more than I want to spend.

Cards I think might be weak here, but are still ok for the first order:

Cultivator's Caravan

Corrupted Grafstone

Glaring Spotlight

Rise from the Tides

everything else is looking frighteningly strong and IDK really what needs adding

OK, so.

First of all, you need fetchlands to play Brainstorm. The key part of brainstorm is it lets you see so much more of your deck, but you need shuffle effects for it, otherwise you are going 3 cards deeper, but having to put the worst cards back, then draw them.

Victimize is just bad, because they can just bolt your creature, and you get nothing. Instead, play 4 copies of Life/Death. The life part doesn't matter. The Death part is a 2 mana reanimate. You want 12 reanimation spells.

Buried Alive lets you set up the Oona, Queen of the Fae and Worldgorger Dragon for the combo, but even without that it is at least an entomb effect, which is better than hoping to draw something.

For dragons, I think better options exist. The dragons you currently have are low impact, slow, or easily removed. Dragonlord Dromoka is big, lets you race stuff, makes your next reanimation as needed safe, and is quite impactful. Dragonlord Kolaghan is a big hasty 6 damage that changes the way your opponent plays slightly. Hellkite Overlord, big, fast, can regenerate, lots of damage.

For your sideboard, Duress is good, but there are better options for the other slots. For example, there are no hexproof creatures played in legacy for Glaring Spotlight. There is one with shroud, but it is a 3/3 and you are generally outclassing it. The unblockable for 4 mana over 2 turns also isn't relevant because you outclass most stuff in the air.
