Niblis of the Breath Discussion

some inexpensive board wipes include Fated Retribution , Akroma's Vengeance , End Hostilities , Hallowed Burial , Phyrexian Rebirth , Rout , and Solar Tide .

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is another way to turn opponent's lands into creatures. as is Quirion Druid and Verdant Touch

As for enabling your frostwaker there is Fyndhorn Brownie , Magewright's Stone , Niblis of the Breath , Puppeteer , and Puppet Strings . some of those are bound to be inexpensive, and adding in a handful of boardwipes and enablers for that strategy would lend itself to doing that strategy more often.

having a lot of tap/untap in my Merieke Ri Berit deck I would use Second Wind and Freed from the Real or even Niblis of the Breath even Hidden Strings would play into your gambits

Looks neat!

Are you using Garza Zol, Plague Queen for any reason? The new legendary Inalla, Archmage Ritualist is pretty easy to get right now, and taps for effects(and lets you get copies of Trinket Mage and Inspired Sprite to get more draws/artifact search.) Praetor's Grasp is always an amazing card to find something in an opponents deck.

Since you have a combo you want to get out, you might like cards like Whir of Invention, Artificer's Intuition, the more expensive Fabricate to get paradise out, and for getting the Freed from the Real try Drift of Phantasms and Dimir Machinations. You can also run the other transmute's like Dizzy Spell or Clutch of the Undercity etc. to find other things in your deck too.

Racecourse Fury is not especially high on the threat list, so you can have essentially free haste-enable on the cheap.Quicksilver Dagger enables tap+damage+draw a card for cheap. Unscythe, Killer of Kings is a silly card that might find a place.Hematite Talisman and Lapis Lazuli Talisman let you untap other creatures to boot.

I'd lose some of the instant/one-off untaps- they're cheap but only good for one motion, whereas you want to be doing it over and over again. Same with ETB like Breaching Hippocamp. Chain Stasis is fun because you could pay 2 to do it again on another creature, making it 2 - trigger inspired. Tidal Bore can let you get out an extra untap or tap when you're strapped for mana.

Niblis of the Breath and Puppeteer are really good(and are 3-drops for things like phantasm and machination searches), as are Stonybrook Angler.

Thassa's Ire isn't the most mana-effective option but it's a one-drop that lets you do it over and over again as long as you have mana. You also may want something like Fortuitous Find to bring back things. Recurr is always good! :D

I broke out my GST deck and looked again at this.Am just curious:

Spear of Heliod gives anthem and plays a little defense.

There are quite a few cards I like in your list that I don't yet have, like Invocation of Saint Traft and Godsend.

Cards I'm not sure of: Chasm Skulker feels unsynergistic without extra draw effects and a token theme with Phantom General or something. -- Thalia's Lieutenant is okay with a few other humans, but would feel better with a more widespread theme to support it. I see the Strionic Resonator, but every deck I know carries removal for just such a creature. -- Is Call to Mind really good with only four other inst/sorcs in the deck? -- I haven't played with Burnished Hart, but sinking 6 mana into the effect feels questionable to me?

Looks like you've got a plan that differs a bit from mine, but I have a few overall thoughts that could help:

  1. Stax: You have some pieces Grand Abolisher & Imposing Sovereign, but I don't think this strategy fits with Shu, who, in my experience needs to hit hard and quick before the table is ready for it. My deck tends to fall behind in the middle-late game.

  2. To that end I'd consider more creatures with built-in evasion or haste (Stormchaser Mage fits both categories cheaply) that can pop out and do immediate damage before being dealt with. Shu's ability + stormchaser + bruteforce hits for 10 for example.

  3. I would prioritize attacking over blocking, I'd want to save my cheap instant when on offense, so they can trip Shu's ability. Cards like Righteousness wouldn't...unless you want to use Shu politically on your opponents turns, which is pretty unexpected and generally useful.

Also, I'd prefer Niblis of Frost over Niblis of the Breath
