Mischievous Poltergeist Discussion

Fantastic budget deck you've got here!!! $50 is wonderful! Some suggestions I would have though are to add in more cards like Wall of Blood (which I see you've already got here) such as Mischievous Poltergeist and maybe substitute some of the card draw here (since you have more than enough I think) for maybe a bit more lifegain or maybe a bit more ramp since the avg cmc of this deck is pretty high. I think some protection like Mirror Shield or Whispersilk Cloak especially would come in very helpful for this deck to protect Villis. Love the deck :)

DrukenReaps Agreed. Mairsil can be dealt with easily in the form of player removal. Most of the protection pieces I had costed life rather than mana so that Mairsil remained on the field. Flicker effects like Aetherling and such effects are great, but when you run out of mana and cant protect Mairsil, you gotta have effects to protect. Cavern Harpy lets you return Mairsil to hopefully recast if someone targets him, keeping CMC down on him. Mischievous Poltergeist is probably the all star, cause unless someone is playing an effect that prevents regen, paying a life and blowing the board with Disk is a great way to protect yourself and Mairsil.

I think a new addition to Mairsil's lists are Pendant of Prosperity. Such a good card (in Mairsil)! Draw two and play two lands seems pretty sweet, and with none of the downside of giving it to the enemy.

I forgot to suggest: The Immortal Sun (since you don't play Planeswalkers). Spine of Ish Sah and Meteor Golem particularly to destroy permanents like artifacts or enchantments. Infernal Darkness is Contamination 's lil brother.

thom-le while I agree that Will-o'-the-Wisp over Mortivore is effective for it's cheaper cost, I am mainly concerned with potentially substituting the activated abilities that cost mana with those of which that cost life instead so that I dont have to rely on holding up mana to do so. Mischievous Poltergeist effectively enables this for me and has more graveyard value in my opinion. Otherwise, I have favored Mortivore over Will-o'-the-Wisp for value on the battlefield so far in playtesting, because he can get rather massive and pose a threat on the battlefield if I have to.

Instead of Mischievous Poltergeist take a look at Will-o'-the-Wisp . Seems a bit cheaper..

Some other interesting protection targets, not saying these should all be included but are interesting to consider if you haven't seen them already.

Ovinomancer / Mischievous Poltergeist / Patchwork Gnomes

Skeleton Scavengers is a strictly better Mischievous Poltergeist. Would you rather pay 1 life, or pay nothing and get a free +1/+1 counter if Mairsil does actually need the regeneration bubble?
