Pestermite Discussion

Sargeras on Assassin's Creed

Interesting deck, so +1 from me, here's my 2 cents.

  1. There are some cards that are great in Commander that fit your theme! Among these are Whispersilk Cloak, Rogue's Passage, Cloak and Dagger, Swiftfoot Boots, Invisible Stalker, Shadowmage Infiltrator, Thalakos Deceiver, and Quietus Spike.

Coastal Piracy also comes to mind.

Paragon of Fierce Defiance should really be Fervor, because if you are going for a haste enabler, you might as well play the best one.

The next cards I'm going to suggest aren't exactly on theme, but I think they do enough in your deck that they should be included regardless, as they have such powerful synergy with what you play.

Among these cards are Levitation, Deceiver Exarch/Pestermite since you run Splinter Twin, Silent-Blade Oni, Dire Undercurrents, Counterspell, Negate, Crawlspace.

If you want any more suggestions feel free to let me know!

Rzepkanut on animar sliver edh concept

You are off to a good start for a sliver deck, but as an Animar deck it could be improved upon. Generally Animar runs about 60 creatures, almost every card possible is a creature to synergize with him. You can replace a bunch of the non creatures with creature cards that do similar things. For card draw, mana dorks, and removal use cards like Tower Geist, Regal Force, Raven Familiar, Somberwald Sage, Rattleclaw Mystic, Birds of Paradise, Man-o'-War, Flametongue Kavu, Duplicant, etc. I don't have an animar deck any more but it often went infinite with Ancestral Statue bouncing itself or kiki/twin + Pestermite or Cloudstone Curio + 2x eldrazi. Shrieking Drake can self bounce to pump animar. Morphs are great because face down they count as a 3 cmc colorless creature. What makes these decks tier one is mana dorks to help cast Animar turn 2, infinite combos, and the top notch creature tutor power possible in green. If you lean in that direction it might help you in your new more competitive playgroup. Happy gathering!

Just saw the Pestermite and Deceiver Exarch. Don't know how I missed those with Kiki-Jiki. I'd either keep or cut all three. Since it's a combo that doesn't interact with your commander or the theme of the deck, it could be cut, but I don't know how often you pull it off. If it's not often, that's 3 slots for good stuff that compliments the deck. If it is often, then by all means keep it.

Hey! This is Eden. First off, this seems like a fun budget build. I'm liking what you put together. This comment is just to give you some ideas if you decide to tune the list further.

For starters, you have some really weak cards, and there are some cards that are generally good with Nin that aren't terribly expensive that you could run. The cards that seem particularly weak to me are: Goblin Electromancer, Goblin Flectomancer, Bloodshot Cyclops, and maybe just the quantity of creature steal and sac outlets. People aren't always playing relevant creatures, and once you have a sac outlet, you don't need another. You could cut a few sac outlets for cheap tutors. You also have this instant and sorcery sub theme going on that's just kinda halfway there. I would suggest cutting that. Also, you play two cards that combo with Kiki-Jiki: Zealous Conscripts and Pestermite. So you have three combo cards. Typically, you want your combo cards to be useful outside of the combo as well. Zealous Conscripts is your strategy, so it's good. Kiki-Jiki copies some interesting creatures, but you really don't have a lot of targets for it. With the stealing it does get a bit better. Pestermite is just terrible outside of that combo. I would strongly suggest cutting it.

I would suggest adding: Stuffy Doll, Darksteel Myr (indestructible means you can hit it for as much as you want with Nin), Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Thought Vessel, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Basilisk Collar, Illusionist's Bracers, Vedalken Shackles. Tutors like Fabricate, Whir of Invention, Gamble, Mystical Tutor, and Muddle the Mixture can also help add consistency to the deck.

Overall, you have a strategy that doesn't revolve around Nin. This is fine, I often build my decks that way, but it's important that the decision be conscious. Many of the cards I suggested make the deck more Nin-centric. If you add them, you'll be more focused on playing and resolving Nin each game; however, the power that it offers can be worth it. I just want to be clear that my suggestions change the direction of your deck a bit, and I'm not sure if you want that. Anyway, I'm excited to play against it! Cheers!

Because this deck can still win without Kiki. I'm considering three, but he's a 5-drop legendary. This deck won't really be able to function with 4 Kiki. As for Pestermite, it's again really not necessary. Restoration Angel and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker already combo infinite.
