Momentary Blink Discussion

chadsansing on Jenaratron's SuperMax Prison

Bant Prison looks sweet.

Brago, King Eternal seems strong here, and maybe a Restoration Angel or Momentary Blink?

I've been building a Zur deck - you might like some of the U and W enchantments in it. See Guay the Enchanter if you'd like.

TaegukTheWise on Making an Entrance

Cancel is pretty bad, I get it, its cheap, but I would suggest either the original Counterspell orDissolve since they do more for the mana put into them. Wall of Blossoms or Wall of Omens is a way better pick over Carven Caryatid for obvious reasons. I will always recommend Restoration Angel and Felidar Guardian over instants and sorceries that don't stick around like Momentary Blink. The other upside to Restoration Angel is that she can be a surprise blocker that's out of bolt range and flies, which is always a plus. If you are running into trouble with Torpor Orb and Hushwing Gryff and Tocatli Honor Guard, run Swords to Plowshares /Path to Exile and for the orb: Naturalize/Krosan Grip. In place of those charms I would run Bant Charm, its the best charm you should be playing since it takes care of an artifact (or torpor orb), an instant, or a creature (with torpor orb's effect on it) and Angelic Purge, they're so good! Get rid of the Tamiyo, she doesn't fit the theme of the deck, nor is she directly progressing your game plan, I would recommend Kiora, Master of the Depths, she untaps Roon (and a land), can dig for a creature or land, and if you get her there you can gain spot removal, that and she isn't as mana intensive. I also believe that you need either lower CMC creatures or get a Birthing Pod (pod also combos with Felidar Guardian). Aerie Mystics does nothing, don't get me wrong, they look cool, but they don't do anything when they enter play, and they might protect your stuff, but that's assuming that you have the mana open to do so especially if you want to play those big CMC creatures I mentioned. The sword needs to go, I'm sorry, the sword just sucks hard-boiled eggs. I used to have a control magic in my deck, Its not what this type of deck is looking for, the same goes for the djinn its way too slow. Gilded Drake is obviously better, but its really expensive, but effective. I'm surprised you don't have a Duplicant in here. Minion Reflector and Ashnod's Altar are niche picks from me, I'll let you figure out how they go infinite! If you want an AEtherling then get one, not a goofy enchantment. You would probably need to add wastes to your deck, but Eldrazi Displacer can help you not rely on casting Roon as much and start focusing on the value you need to generate. Get a Mulldrifter, its too good not to have. If you still have Derevi, Empyrial Tactician add her back in. Commander's Sphere is better than the keyrune, hands down. And for the final bit I'll add (if you want more advice just ask or see my Roon deck) is a ramp set, Solemn Simulacrum, Explosive Vegetation, Blighted Woodland, and Armillary Sphere.

TaegukTheWise on Roon of the Hidden Realm: Transcendent Rhino

Cards like Ghostly Flicker is not comparable to a creature like Restoration Angel. Think about the two in their worst case scenarios: One is a top deck dud on an empty board that does nothing but sit in your hand, the other can turn into a surprise blocker/attacker in a pinch. Creatures with spells on them are usually so much better than the instant/sorcery counterpart since they are bodies that do something rather than go into the grave after being played. Restoration Angel is miles above cards like Momentary Blink. Also Restoration Angel combos with Felidar Guardian, Panharmonicon and a draw/mill creature like Jace's Mindseeker, or Thought-Knot Seer. I have this combo detailed in my Roon deck, but essentially it allows you to continuously blink them to mill your opponents.

I come baring recommendations! Perhaps Venser, the Sojourner might be useful. As for some instants or sorceries, you might want to consider Ghostly Flicker or Momentary Blink. I would put some Ravenous Rats or a Sin Collector in there myself, add a few more options, you even get to see your opponent's hand!

I like the Investigate theme in this deck and think it would be safe to double down on this theme seeing it has great synergy with Tezzeret the Schemer, and Tezzeret's Touch

want to get at least 3-4 copies of tezz in the deck too

also add Ensoul Artifact for redundancy

going 4 Thraben Inspector, 3 Erdwal Illuminator is a good move!

can never go wrong with a few Bygone Bishop, also Marionette Master can swarm the board or make a fairly big beater with added upsides with her ability

if you really want to try and push the 3 color aspect of the deck maybe add a blink subtheme in the deck that would abuse Hidden Stockpile

a singleton of Deadeye Navigator could do the trick having him blink a creature that investigates, also Momentary Blink has some recursion making it a decent card.

DUEL LANDS ARE YOUR FRIENDS, playing three colors makes things tough never want to get stuck on not having the right mana having lands that tap for 2 different colors makes things alot easier! if budget is necessary and dont want to put alot of money into your land base, you can always use a playset of Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse to fetch up your basic lands

SynergyBuild on Esper Tempo Bears

Also, for a more control build (I know this is tempo, but tempo-control is a beautiful match for the esper colours), Supreme Verdict and Ghostly Prison are fun options. For good flicker effects like Restoration Angel, Cloudshift is a favorite of mine, along with Essence Flux being the same price, and in esper you can use Momentary Blink for reusable value. For a body I like Stonecloaker more than Restoration Angel, because you have reenter the battlefield effects that you want at some other time (like Spell Queller/Whitemane Lion) and Ghostly Flicker isn't bad either.

SteelSentry on Bouncing Big Baddies! [Needs Advice]

As I referenced in the forum post, Eerie Interlude, Momentary Blink, and Panharmonicon would slide nicely into this deck. Ephara, God of the Polis is a good draw engine for a blink deck. Conjurer's Closet is another all-star in flicker decks.

For what to cut, I would say Preordain and Resurrection are good cards, but don't have any synergy with everything else. Breaching Leviathan is a cast trigger, so I might cut it since you have a good amount of top-end anyway.

SteelSentry on Made a Roon Deck with ...

Eerie Interlude is a good protection against sweepers and gets a lot of value. In fact, I would consider more cards like Momentary Blink, it doesn't look like you run any instant speed blink other than Roon. Also, Panharmonicon seems like a great card to put in.
