Oona's Blackguard Discussion

Consider expanding on the +1/+1 counter theme that Kresh is using? Cards that give your creatures bonuses for having counters:

Giving Kresh trample seems very good because otherwise he can just be chump blocked constantly. Giving him trample with spells is really a one shot deal where as using some creatures that can give him trample can last longer.

As far as the sacfrice theme with Kresh you can also expand on it using more creatures that give you value before they die and they die without needing to use other cards:

These creatures are removal spells who also die by themselves.

Creatures with evoke seems good with the Kresh because you get value from them using their low evoke cost and then they die by themselves. Creatures who are evoked do enter the battlefield and then they die. They work with abilities that want creatures to die such as Kresh. Brairhorn for example is a nice aggro evoke creature that Kresh can really benefit from.

Creatures with exploit such as Sidisi lets you sac a creature even itself and get value.

Good luck with your deck.

Icbrgr on Pattern Recognition #24 - Ninjutsu

I gotta chime in because im one of those Cult Kamigawa lovers :p However; I agree with just about everything in this article. Ninjutsu was/is cool but the double whammy of limited card selection and color choices made deck building around it pretty difficult. Im a casual/modern player and found that things like Ornithopter/Memnite seem liked good enablers but ultimately just didnt pack enough punch or value... but a tribe that also exists in the Dimir colors was Faeries and ETB effects like Spellstutter Sprite and damage effects from Oona's Blackguard...and the relatively new Faerie Miscreant it made it plausible to come up with a decent 60 card deck... in terms of EDH....impossible i think.... has anyone made a LEGIT Higure, the Still Wind EDH deck? (...and won...against people who have played Magic before...)

no Oona's Blackguard? seems like it could be pretty good.

Izu_Korasu on Rogue Tribal, possible without a ...

first off, i would argue that cards like Stinkdrinker Bandit and Oona's Blackguard are rogue lords and have the adaptive lords Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic

next on to suggestions, while its not a rogue per say, Corrosive Mentor could add an extra punch to your non-evasive deck, making opponents wary of blocking with larger creatures.

Deathcult Rogue, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Inkfathom Infiltrator, Marsh Flitter(comboes especially well with oona's black guard) and Zulaport Cutthroat all have their uses and can be powerful in the right variant of mono-black rogues. (although i think you get the most power from u/b artifact rogues)

Merrow Bonegnawer seems like especially good sb tech against dredge/delirium/graveyard type decks.

Go for the Throat instead of doom blade

Modern is pretty much a turn 4 win format, so expensive mana cost cards that doesn't win you games are not awesome.

I would suggest to stay away from Oona, Queen of the Fae, I have a faerie deck and it never served me any purpose other than get killed or being a dead draw.

Concentrate is on the expensive side for a 4 CMC card. I would also consider Foresee to be much better in most cases.

Tragic Slip is a hit or miss and I would consider something more reliable because you can't have a creature die anytime you want to.

Faerie Miscreant is pretty good as 4x of.

Faeries are really weak and are more reliable with alot of control in the long run, so I would prefer more control over Favorable Winds.

-1 Oona's Blackguard + 1 Spellstutter Sprite

Thats what I think for now

Drana, Liberator of Malakir works nicely with Marchesa's second ability. You can also consider Yahenni, Undying Partisan as well. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is extremely useful, so you can include him if you're willing to break the bank a little.

Dictate of Erebos is an instant-speed version of Grave Pact, so when someone blocks your guy with a bigger creature, just flash in Dictate for annoyance.

River Kelpie, Sage of Fables, Disciple of Bolas, and Grim Haruspex give nice card advantage. These are also somewhat synergistic with Chasm Skulker.

You can also try out Olivia, Mobilized for War (and/or Olivia Voldaren) and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born for some synergy with Marchesa.

Oona's Blackguard and Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch work as well.

For some more ETB damage, you can put in Warstorm Surge, Goblin Bombardment, and maybe Sneak Attack.

how much milage are you getting out of Oona's Blackguard? i personally really enjoy Mistbind Clique for my 3rd faerie slot. I would also, in the future, pick up some more copies of Vendilion Clique. Really helps with hand control, and is also a faerie.
