Momentary Blink Discussion

Nice, flicker is fun. I play a UW Flicker deck with Sunscape Familiar and Compulsive Research and stuff. I'm of the opinion that Momentary Blink has to be better than Acrobatic Maneuver, but that's just me. Getting to recast it for extra value is better than the single card drawn every day of the week, and it's 1 less mana for the initial cast.

Part of me doesn't want to divulge one of my secrets, but another part of me kinda does... Gulf Squid is incredible. With blink effects behind it you just get to completely tap them down on their upkeep, which is usually either a Silence at worst or a Time Walk at best. Paired with Ghostly Flicker and Mnemonic Wall, they never get to use their lands again except on their upkeep. Fun stuff.

+1 looks fun! I think though your CMC is high for a pauper deck...looks like to many 3 drops. Have you considered Momentary Blink? Also your deck might benefit from some Scry like Serum Visions or Opt.

You need more removals. Replace Azorius Charm and Momentary Blink for Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile. If you want a third removal, Reality Shift is a good one which can replace one of your lands since your CMC is pretty low and can probably afford to go down to 35.

Interesting build. I haven't considered Arcades as a combo enabler so this is pretty cool. However, I think that your deck is a bit unfocused. It looks like your are caught between beatdown and combo. I'd pick a focus and go hard into that.

Jeskai Barricade, Ghostway, Momentary Blink, Ghostly Flicker, and Champion's Helm are all great additional ways to protect things. Another pet card of mine that I am considering for my Arcades list for protection + value is Cloud Cover.

I am surprised to not see either Wall of Kelp or Deadeye Navigator in the list. The additional value either provide is ridiculous.

Mnemonic Wall seems like an auto include in this list.

Sun Titan is also great since most walls cost under 3 cmc and it hits over 30 of your permanents. The same could be said for Eternal Witness since you already have a blink theme.

Doorkeeper is cute but it will never generate enough value to mill someone out in a 4 player 100 card format by itself...

If you want other ideas you can check out my Arcades list here. It follows the beatdown track more, but it might provide you with some ideas.

Well bounced and blinked are two different things. If bounced it goes to your hand and unless you can recast it with flash it will not be around for the draws to trigger the counter ability. If you blink it with DEN, Momentary Blink, or the like it will exit and return before the trigger to draw goes on the stack. In this case it will be on the battlefield when the draws happen and the counter adding ability will trigger. In either case it enters as a 1/1 so it can be killed with instant speed damage like Electrickery or many others.

Blue opens you up to Momentary Blink. The Flashback is very useful.

Appreciate the kind words, Atrabilogie! This has been one of my favorite personal decks to play, and one of the first decks I started building when I started playing the game back in 2013. Very happy to hear you like it as well!

I really like your idea of Momentary Blink in place of Cloudshift. I originally went with Cloudshift for the cost advantage, but I think you are right that the option for flashback makes Momentary Blink a better alternative in the long run. Ill have to try that out myself! There are some other pretty interesting spells like Ghostly Flicker that could be interesting to try as well.

Akroma, Angel of Fury is a recent new change for this deck. I found it being used in a similar deck, and thought I would give it a shot. The idea is really interesting- the way it works is that you play it as a 2/2 morph creature for 3. If you can blink/flicker it afterward, it actually returns to the battlefield face up as Akroma! So its a way of cheating Akroma into play without having to pay any red mana. It can be played as early as turn 4, and it is also extremely difficult for your opponent to get rid of it. All the traditional removal Modern spells (Fatal Push, Dismember, Path to Exile, Lightning Bolt) cannot take care of her. Youll never be able to pump Akroma, but even so it is makes for a very fast clock for your opponent. The downside is that once your opponent knows the trick, he/she will save their removal for the 2/2 morph creature before you can flip it, as it is a very fragile creature otherwise. But it is still a really neat card to play around with!

Against Mono Red Burn, Dragon's Claw is definitely one of the best sideboard cards against it, as well as Leyline of Sanctity. I do slightly prefer Lone Missionary and Kitchen Finks versus aggro & burn for better blinking/flickering synergy with the deck, but of course it is all your personal preference and meta!

Anyways, let me know how it goes with this deck, and best of luck to you in all your matches! :)
