Nightveil Specter Discussion

I'm not a fan of Curious Obsession- with so many 'sacrifice' one drop fliers, its difficult to consistantly stick and get value from.

Have you considered Cloudfin Raptor, Biomass Mutation, Coralhelm Commander Kira, Great Glass-Spinner Nightveil Specter Spellstutter Sprite Sprite Noble or Wind Zendikon? Additionaly, a couple of utility lands won't negatively impact Tempest Djinn too much, and can help smooth things out a lot.

Wistful Selkie,Voidmage Prodigy, Spellstutter Sprite, Nightveil Specter and Exotic Orchard really don't have a place in the deck. They take up valuable slots you could have for things such as cantrips or draws.

chadsansing THANKS FOR THE IDEAS!!!

Some letters already had them on my list Bribery and Desertion to steal when least expected like a real thief! eheheh

But I needed more solutions to be able to carry other types of cards and Beacon of Unrest; Nightveil Specter; Acquire; Carry Away and Legerdemain (the latter I already have) are excellent solutions and ... great thieves!

Many thanks for the ideas !!!

If this continues to evolve 40 thieves will not be enough ... ahahah!

A non-Un alternative to the last question: If I controlled both a Deceiver of Form and a Fiend Hunter (and had a... Fugitive Wizard exiled under it), then Deceiver of Form causes Fiend Hunter to become a copy of Rona, Disciple of Gix or Nightveil Specter, would I then be able to cast the Fugitive Wizard?

The main thing I see here is not having big finishers. Sure, kill your opponent's creatures but then what? You need something to end the game. You have some good creatures there. I think you should take out Nightveil Specter (if you play against a different color you can't cast anything) and Rakdos Cackler for Vampire Nighthawk and Skinrender (he can also act as a removal).

Having 2-4 bombs that actually win the match is the important part. I'd take out Toshiro Umezawa. He needs to have a creature die, which means you probably used a removal, and if you want to cast another one you can just cast it from your hand instead of playing with your graveyard, that's not what the decks does... Good bombs like Grave Titan, Overseer of the Damned, Massacre Wurm (Works well with your removals) and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet can REALLY change the game.

Also, get yourself some ways to draw cards. You get more removals, and you cycle through the deck to reach the cards you need. A bomb, a special removal, idk, something. Erebos, God of the Dead can cycle nicely and she's a big creature. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is also great. Never mind the thing about humans, he buffs your creatures and gives them Undying which is really good. Bonus - creatures with ETB (enter the battlefield) effects can work well with it because they do their effect twice. Skinrender which I mentioned earlier can be used as a removal twice in a match, or just used to weaken enemy bombs.

You could swap Hero's Downfall for Vraska's Contempt. 1 more mana but takes care of indestructible and gains you some life.I don't think Bojuka Bog fits this deck, I'd take it out for Cabal Coffers but if you're on budget, just another Swamp.

Now when I think of it... Having so many removals in one deck can be cool, so nvm my earlier comment hahaGood luck with this deck man, it looks REALLY cool and has great ponential!

Random passerby, but:

Nightveil Specter and Trace of Abundance are both illegal cards in this deck. They have black and red mana symbols, respectively.
