Mizzium Skin Discussion
1 week ago
Let me Reanimate this deck.
Mizzium Skin can also protect your illusions from spells and counter one that's on the pile. It could also provide a mini combat trick to save a creature, but +0/+1 is still lame.
Veiling Oddity can setup a kill.
AEtherplasm can bring stuff to your board and/or keep you safe while attacking with all your flying board.
Maybe : Riftwing Cloudskate for some little but sometimes needed control.

Ashmed Thanks, and I have some card choice debates to start with you!
Learn from the Past or Mnemonic Nexus? learn draws a card which is good, nexus is graveyard hate and recursion in one. both instant which i really like. Both are 4 drops which i seem to be getting a lot of now.
Mizzium Skin seems out of place, I don't need my commander to live to do well. A lot of the other creatures are virtual copies of others so any one piece isn't vital, unlike your talrand deck I assume.
I agree that running multiples of good cards is a smart move, I guess I'm just not sold on Enigma Drake yet. the deck has played pretty well with the token angle, also Runechanter's Pike turns any creature into a drake.
Guttersnipe is a really good card, I just don't know what to cut for it. Right now i have 19 cards that aren't instants or sorceries. Taking any out is hard, that's why i like asking folks for help. I'm too attached to all the little trickery nonsense to really think hard about cutting them.
I could probably create a sideboard to test out new ideas and create different gameplans. Like cut the Whir of Invention, Aetherflux Reservoir and the Elixir of Immortality for Enigma Drake, Spellheart Chimera and either Mnemonic Nexus or Learn from the Past. Learn something from those cards and see how they play different.

I'm liking this deck very much! Would you consider running a Learn from the Past for recursion?
I would also always recommend an Isochron Scepter for any spellslinger deck. Not sure if that falls under your budget though?
Also Lat-Nam's Legacy is a very under appreciated card which has helped me out more often than not. If you get it early you can shuffle in a high costing card, if it's later game you can send away an unnecessary land.
Hope these ideas help! Thinking about making a similar deck now I've seen this!!

replace Inside Out with Exquisite Firecraft, you also might want to consider Izzet Charm , Mizzium Skin , and Steam Augury. Steam Augury is great for draw and also putting spells into the graveyard to pump up Enigma Drake and Spellheart Chimera. Mizzium Skin is a great way to protect your creatures from removal and also can be used just for the health to trade. Izzet Charm is just great because of its flexability.

Where to start... It would help with suggestions if you let us know a budget range with that out of mind lets start;
In your creature department, you have on Turn 3 you want to cast.... Enigma Drake and Spellheart Chimera and Guttersnipe? Why are you running a play set of each? Doing so open you up to hand where your staring at 3 lands and 4 creatures, and you can't play a card till turn 3. I think this is why faster aggro are giving you problems (yes you may not always or ever see that opening hand but, if even 2 of those creature are in you opening hand it's not good), this is why people are saying add someone like Monastery Swiftspear or Delver of Secrets Flip even Blistercoil Weird, then you could have one of those guys turn one, turn two is spent setting up you turn three by Serum Visions or Faithless Looting even Thought Scour and your turn three Enigma Drake or Spellheart Chimera. In short, your curve doesn't feel right with play set of each Enigma Drake, Spellheart Chimera and Guttersnipe.
Blue is best known for Counterspell and draw power that said it lesser known/acknowledged power is its power to add evasions to its attackers. Cards like Slip Through Space and Artful Dodge would go along way. Mizzium Skin is also, a good addition.
Hope was I was of some help,GL HF

Interesting deck, but I don't think black makes sense here. Blue gives you access to better unblockable creatures: Triton Shorestalker, Slither Blade and some better exalted in Ethercaste Knight. Also, a lot of these cards are frankly just pretty bad. I think you'd be better of dropping some of the crappy exalted creatures for Bonesplitter or something to buff your unblockable creatures power, maybe Mizzium Skin to protect them. I'd drop the Pacifism for Journey to Nowhere, as it is generally better. Also, if you do stick with black, Mind Rot is just bad, and there are many better alternatives to Doom Blade.
