Maybe a Price of Fame? That card is so fun (sideboard maybe?)

I would replace Chemister's Insight with Discovery / Dispersal. You surveil 2 and draw 1 card,but you don't have to discard for the Jump-Start and you get a stack on the Phantasm.

Another alternative for Release to the Wind, actually even better, would be Siren's Ruse. It costs less, returns the creature to the battlefield as a new body and it could save your creature instead of a counterspell, because the killing spell loses a target. What makes this card even better is after you attacked with Etrata and put a hit counter on enemy creature, you can use it. Your Etrata will be untapped and the enemy will have another creature with a hit counter.

I would replace 4xVicious Offering for 2xMoment of Craving and 2xPrice of Fame. I don't like the sacrifice cost you have added as all creatures are valuable, plus Price of Fame costs 2 mana vs legendary creatures and you get to surveil 2.

Sorry if i wrote too much. This Eltrata deck has been on my mind for the past 1 week and i have done so much research and tried many stuff on MTG:Arena. Hope i was useful :)

BrandonNass on UB - Surveil

After playing this deck a bit, I learned a few things. Dimir Spybug is fantastic, cheap, gets big quickly, and is hard to block. Thoughtbound Phantasm is also good. A 2/2 for U is already good, and it gets big and loses defender quickly. Nightveil Sprite is the repeatable surveil trigger that makes them both shine.

Price of Fame is okay even without a legendary target, but only due to the surveil. Thought Erasure is well-costed, effective, and a great surveil card. Sinister Sabotage and Unexplained Disappearance are both good. Creeping Chill is okay, but only really if you cast it from the graveyard for free. Notion Rain is great, and has amazing artwork IMO. Not much to say about Sinister Sabotage, it is Cancel with surveil attached. Disinformation Campaign is disappointing without surveil in it, and Enhanced Surveillance is best limited to 2 per deck.

Yeah to follow your own suggestion it needs some kinda removal. Ravenous Chupacabra and Price of Fame are some options. Also you go for some copies ofNightveil Sprite if you wanted another creature drop that could repeat proc surveil for spybug and the phantasm.

I haven't messed around with the archetype yet but I'm guessing the trick is to pick a direction and build for it's advantages.

Cards with the overgrowth keyword tend to be quite strong but only work if your graveyard is packed with creatures. I'm seeing a lot of midrange decks that jam creatures into the graveyard with Stitcher's Supplier and Glowspore Shaman in the early game and win with literally any graveyard payoff imaginable.

Wildgrowth Walker Jadelight Ranger decks are still fine and work a little better when you're priced into having payoffs that work with only 1 or 2 creatures in the yard. The advantage there is explore creatures are better as creatures but don't have the ability to self mill to quite the extreme degree as some of the new guilds of Ravnica cards to.

Working surveil in isn't that tricky. There are quite a few competitively costed cards that surveil but not that many good surveil payoffs (besides generic graveyard matters of course). I could see someone running some number of Blood Operative in sultai although I imagine the best place for it is getting incidental self mill value off of the occasional Thought Erasure or Price of Fame.

In terms of Muldrotha, the Gravetide, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed could be better in the slot but like it depends on the build I guess.

Hey bud. love the deck :)

A single suggestion, remove Walk the Plank for Price of Fame?. It is then playing at Instant speed.

Dragon Mage can allow you to draw and refuel, if the playgroup is more fun focused maybe use Curse of Opulence, Lotus Petals for all but that one guy.

Possibility Storm is a "fun" little card that makes decks focused on making a combo and casting from hand a lot harder to pull off (especially if you throw in a Rule of Law effect as well), while also not really effecting the plan of kaalia putting down threats, your spells of each type also for the most part share similar effects.

The new set also brought with it some pretty good pseudo tutor or card draw effects, though the Doom Whisperer might be a tad pricey atm there are plenty of other rwb cards that are plenty strong, like the new tagic giving protection to your creatures from burn based removal or Price of Fame being a Murder with upside.

-Arcanity- As for the CMC, I feel like that is skewed upwards by the deck builder counting Discovery/Dispersal as an 8 mana card. Unexplained Disappearance is going to get cut in favor of Price of Fame eventually, but a soft bounce has worked well so far. And this one is built completely around Surveil, if a spell doesn't surveil or receive a benefit from, it's not getting played.

Skyler1776 It's sided mostly because I don't plan on games going long enough for me to benefit from that, though I did want it available if I absolutely need it to close out later games. Additionally, Lazav needs target creatures in the yard in order for his ability to be used. Azcanta is definitely going to be considered though, even though I had originally planned this to be entirely in GRN in order to get as much continuous playability out of it, unaffected by rotation.
