Thanks for taking the time to reply and clarify Etratas ability Stefouch

I've tried this again on Arena when I had Blink of an Eye , Unexplained Disappearance and Rescue in hand and it would not let me play any of these to bounce Etrata back. I'll submit a bug report about this

An etb trigger is an ability that triggers when a card Enters The Battlefield.

Like Vampire Sovereign, and Dimir Informant. (Which are your only noteworthy etb triggers, and part of the reason Rescue seems pretty underpowered.)

Cutting you deck down to 60 cards would be a huge improvement. You have a lot of underpowered cards, so cutting your deck down to minimum size would make you get to your best cards more consitantly.

Rescue could go. With this few (good) etb triggers, it's not going to be that impactful, and you don't want to bounce your artifacts. (Or it could just become an Unsummon if you got one)

Ceremonious Rejection Seems very specific, but you do surveil a lot, and the card is pretty good, so it may be fine, but I'm not loving it. (Or is it a meta thing?)

Realmwright doesn't seem too useful. I guess it can help you cast Dread Shade, but that's pretty niche.

Amulet of Safekeeping also seems a tad too specific to be good, unless it's a meta thing, (but again, surveil help you get rid of it easily).

Wand of Vertebrae Is probably too RNG to be any good.


With the boosters you've opened, I'm willing to bet you've got some Dimir Guildgates or even Watery Graves, and a couple fixers would be a great addition to the mana base.

Also, I'm sure you've got some Discovery / Dispersal, which is one of the greatest survel cards.

Isochron Scepter is a tough card to cut in. If you had ten instants cmc 2 or less that work with the deck it would be worth an include. You could go for a they cast, you steal and hit, then bounce the creature strategy Blink of an Eye, Rescue that would allow for the fling and scepter combo to be viable.

I may give Unsummon a try, although I actually cut Rescue for Siren's Ruse because it’s nuts with Etrata

I suggest you replace Rescue with Unsummon, since Unsummon gives you more options.

Hmm... Rescue is a serious suggestion. The reason why I am not automatically adding it is because I've tried to include unsummon spells that do more than just return the creature/permanent. Dream Stalker is a good example of this. Most of the time I would rather pay an extra mana at sorcery speed in order to get a 1/5 creature out of the unsummon spell. It is a good, versatile, suggestion though. After playing more with my group, I may find that the kicker cost of Into the Roil is usually too high and I may want to opt for Rescue as a cheaper alternative. Thank you!

I think you have all the pauper-legal blink effects, but is there a reason you aren't running Rescue? It hits all permanents you control, so it could come in handy.
