Hidden Strings


You may tap or untap target permanent, then you may tap or untap another target permanent.

Cipher (Then you may exile this spell card encoded on a creature you control. Whenever that creature deals combat damage to a player, its controller may cast a copy of the encoded card without paying its mana cost.)

Hidden Strings Discussion

BosmaTheNL on Unesh, the Fair (Comboless Artifacts)

Testing Hidden Strings. It can untap two permanents every turn reliably with all the flying creatures and it pays for itself and even can ramp the turn you cast it. It is currently replacing Sensei's Divining Top as it has been underwhelming. It's almost a dead draw late game and not that good early. The card advantage it offers is very little using complicated shenanigans, and inconsequential compared to the card advantage Unesh offers by himself.

Sulk on Legend Rule for Planeswalkers!

I dont like it. The legendary rule was previously so flavourful, it showed character progress, like how nissa becomes a green-blue planeswalker as she gets a Hidden Strings on Kefnet. Game wise it will justh become confusing,

"I am just using Jace's +1"

"Which Jace"

Anyway, we will just have to see...

Hidden Strings is also really good on Kefnet, since he has evasion and indestructible.

Correct. You can use cipher's reminder text to help you: you exile Hidden Strings encoded on a creature you control, and you copy the encoded card when the creature deals damage. The spell with cipher is what's being encoded.

Check out Welcome to The Jungle (Derevi). I had the same idea but went heavy into tokens.

Hidden Strings works well with Derevi, as does Coastal Piracy/Bident of Thassa

a more aggro option for Hidden Strings is Hands of Binding (whitch i use in my rogue deck). Also you might wanna throw some other unblockable creatures like Slither Blade or Triton Shorestalker for the Stinkdrinker Bandit buff. But as I see your rogue deck is more of a control deck while mine is pure aggro with some disruption as. For a control rogue deck you should consider Notorious Throng and Knowledge Exploitation and maybe Explorer's Scope. i don't know if you know this card Thieves' Fortune but don't underestimate it, saved my ass a bunch of times.

Anyway take a look at backstabbed and say what you think :)

View from Above fits in perfectly, definitely going to find a place. the only reason I dismissed Battlefield Thaumaturge is because it would only work with Hidden Strings. with it being a card I want to drop early and using its ability to untap the mana spent on it i decided against it.

maybe there is 2 or 3 drop instants and sorcery's that would fit in this deck and make Battlefield Thaumaturge more viable

Have you considered Cipher's like Hands of Binding, Hidden Strings and Stolen Identity?
