Hypnotic Sprite

Hypnotic Sprite

Creature — Faerie


(You may cast Hypnotic Sprite from exile if you sent it on an adventure.)

Mesmeric Glare

Instant — Adventure

Counter target spell with converted mana cost 3 or less.

(You may cast Mesmeric Glare for from anywhere that you have the permission to cast this, then exile it on an adventure instead of putting it into your graveyard. When you have not chosen to cast Mesmeric Glare, this card is treated only as Hypnotic Sprite in whatever zone it is in.)

(Example scenarios for Mesmeric Glare: You may cast this off of Melek, Izzet Paragon. You may not target this with Snapcaster Mage. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben increases the cost of this. Electrodominance requires X=3. If your opponent owns this and you cast it, only you may cast Hypnotic Sprite when it goes on an adventure. You may cast this from a cascade spell if the spell has a cost greater than Hypnotic Sprite's cost.)

Hypnotic Sprite Discussion

What about Brazen Borrower?

Faerie Miscreant can be useful. Maybe Hypnotic Sprite, but it's a pretty weak card.

I'd definitely remove the Air Elementals. If you want a big beater, rather play Cavalier of Gales or Sphinx of Foresight. Heck, even Faerie Formation is stronger.

Cerulean Drake is a must-have for the sideboard in a deck like this.

Take out Oko's Accomplices and Tuinvale Treefolk. Replace them both with Kenrith's Transformation So you can take out Charmed Sleep and replace it with two more Brazen Borrowers. Oko's Hospitality for two more Beanstalk Giants, and the oko walkers for two more Hypnotic Sprites. If you want the heavy fairy focus thats fine, that's my first suggestion

I am kinda favoring Hypnotic Sprite over Harbinger of the Tides for mono blue right now.

I also am teetering on the line between Cloudfin Raptor and Curious Obsession.

Arguments for the Sprite: same devotion as Harbinger. Flies. Same damage. Most things killing Sprite still kill harbinger. Added utility of more counter magic when needed.

I am having trouble deciding on the Raptor vs Obsession. Both are full of potential.

What say you all?

It seems there are many cards in here that just don't do much, as well as there being naught in terms of basic essentials for a commander deck.

As for creatures:

Dewdrop Spy , Dream Thief , Faerie Duelist , Faerie Seer , Final-Sting Faerie , Hypnotic Sprite , Latchkey Faerie , Nightshade Schemers , Pestermite , Shinechaser , Surveilling Sprite , Thornwind Faeries , Wasp Lancer , and Wizened Snitches . None of these seem to stand out. They have lacking effects that don't bolster power level, but rather drag it down. Cards in other supertypes seem to fall under the same category.

Faerie Tauntings , Stolen by the Fae , Dimir Locket , Violet Pall and Dimir Locket all seem incongruous and lacking. Brainstorm is best when shuffling effects can launder away cards if need be. This deck has only two tutors. Stolen by the Fae is restrictive and minute in impact, as well as a sorcery. Violet Pall seems far too expensive for what it does.

For what I believe should be added, card draw, ramp, and threats.

Windreader Sphinx , Coastal Piracy , and Bident of Thassa are able to draw a considerable amount over the course of a match. Phyrexian Arena , Underworld Connections , and Consecrated Sphinx oft daggle me through the game rather easily.

Sol Ring , Smothering Tithe , Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Hierarchy , Azorius Signet , Dimir Signet , Orzhov Signet , and Mind Stone all carry their weight and herald efficiency.

For wraths, I find that two or three do the job well, and Rout or Cyclonic Rift seem to fit the plan of this deck well.

Dovin, Grand Arbiter could be a spicy option, and Unfulfilled Desires is a favourite of mine.

Good fortune to you, my liege. May all lout in your wake.

Alright... so played the deck a few times and (of course) agree on the changes for more interaction. Removed Opt and Hypnotic Sprite , but chose not to go down the 'stable' path for this build. This is my build after all... lol. So applied some different changes as can be seen in the new decklist. A couple notes: I don't own a single Fabled Passage and most certainly will not be buying them. But the build obv wants FP's so this is what the build would look like to ensure it gets all its colors consistently. Currently play testing with those 4 cards proxied out just to see what it can muster. And no this is not all foiled out. I used the 'foil' icon to help me keep track of my changes. Let's see how this does over the next couple weeks.

I think that you can cut Healer of the Glade to add something that gives devotion to blue. There are some suggestions:

Hypnotic Sprite is very under-powered. Replace it with more of any of the following: Faeburrow Elder , Smitten Swordmaster , or Acclaimed Contender (this would almost remove blue, which means you can take this down to a four-color build without too much trouble). This actually isn't a horrible build, but you need more interaction. Opt can be replaced by interaction, as can Steelclaw Lance .

shadow63 on Oops mill is back

I think you need a few more.creatures maybe Hypnotic Sprite it doubles as an extra counter spell too. Or Mesmerizing Benthid is a board in a box. Overwhelmed Apprentice helps further mill when it comes into play. You could try Persistent Petitioners . But your best bet is probably Wall of Lost Thoughts
