Quickling Discussion

Quickling is a good card here as it allows you to reuse your ETB fairies and save them from removal. As you have Spellstutter Sprite it could replace 4 of the counterspells.

You are also lacking a one drop Faerie Miscreant fits the bill and can double as card draw sometimes.

Memphismaymagic5 it's true ! I was playing against aggro and this deck had a lack of dynamism. I think it will be great to replace Quickling and instants to add 3 Serum Visions.

I think Oona, Queen of the Fae is somewhat too manaexpensive compared to the rest of this deck - also, 26 lands is probably a bit high. 23 should do it, without Oona. Instead you could play Mistbind Clique. There are also those, who would add Ninja of the Deep Hours, since you have piles of flying attackers, and something's gotta go through unblocked.

Quickling is a nice and cheap card, that helps making extra value of ninja, Spellstutter Sprite and anything else that you might want to save from removal.

Play Remand instead of Dissolve - first, because this is modern, and 3 cmc counterspells aren't good enough. Second, because you really want the cantrip effect (this deck should be so aggressive, that a spell countered-to-hand is just as lost as a spell countered-to-graveyard). If you have space left over, Vapor Snag is pretty good.

Yams on Izzet Faeries?

Wow, I wasn't expecting you to still be following this deck. I just had a bit of a hiatus from Magic, so I don't have too much experience with the new meta.

For the most part, I've tested this deck against my brother's "fight deck" (mono-green aggro capitalizing on spells that say "fight" and heroic triggers). I've found that this deck doesn't have an endgame or finisher, so I think I'll need to splurge on 2-3 Mistbind Clique to fill that role. To make room, I'll cut a Quickling and 1-2 Familiar's Ruse since, if I have too many "return a creature you control" cards in my deck nothing is going to stay on the field.

Another comment/question: I stumbled upon Soul-Scar Mage and would like your opinion on if it's a better 1-drop than Faerie Miscreant. It doesn't receive any tribal benefits, but a cheap prowess creature is nice to have and the replacement effect of -1/-1 counters could allow for interesting plays, especially with cards such as Electrolyze against non-token decks.

Aside from that, over the next couple of days I'm going to test this against the Tier 1 decks "as is" to see what's missing and to polish the sideboard (which is really shaky). I may try testing this out at some point in development against a friend who uses Rocket Science. Obviously these matchups are stacked against me and aren't entirely representative of the FNM environment I'm more realistically going to be in, but I think it'll be enlightening on seeing my deck's shortcomings.

Also, thanks for the comment on the graveyard: is it that Bedlam Reveler puts too much weight on it? I'll probably end up cutting that when Faerie Miscreant comes, and I'm uncertain of how long Logic Knot will remain when I get a feel for the prevalence of grave hate, so really that leaves Rune Snag, which probably isn't worth boarding in major grave hate.

Oh yes if Peregrine Drake is ever brought up, I immediately think back to Palinchron and Great Whale. Quickling however is not something I have considered and its a choice that I like.

I really just need to cut something and I'm starting to think it might be Kor Cartographer. I appreciate your suggestions; thanks for the ideas.

Have you considered Quickling and Palinchron.

Neotrup on Blinking cratures to prevent damage?

1) No, your Avatar is not dead, it's in your hand. It was returned before the damage could be dealt.

2) The ability is countered due to lack of a legal target (fizzled). They cannot change the target to a legal one, it was already locked in.

This is entirely why cards like Quickling exist, to save your creatures and thwart your opponent's plans.

Kyte524 on Blinking cratures to prevent damage?

I'm sure this has been answered before but I want to clarify this scenario:

I have attacked with a Avatar of the Resolute, currently with 2 counters on it, making it a 5/4. My opponent blocks with 2 Goblin Arsonist's.

Combat damage is dealt, and as their goblins die they target my avatar with their extra damage effects. I play Quickling from my hand, returning my Avatar to my hand.

One: Is my Avatar dead? I assumed not, which leads to my next and more relevant question.

Two: Can my opponent direct the damage to another target after Quickling is played? They, looking rather frustrated. said they could and then chose to target my face with the 2 extra pings. Doesn't the damage just fizzle with their original target no longer being valid?
