Royal Assassin Discussion

Well in my humble opinion
is a worse version of
, for the following reasons:
- Its much easyer to be played around
- Its also a multi card combo, but its support cards (tap spells & effects) tend to be worse than the deatttouch creatures going along the bow which, even in the worst case present some damage.
- It sorely lacks a second playset, i mean you can play 4x Pathway Arrows as Viridian Longbow 4-8 to make the deck more consistent, you don't have that with Royal Assassin .

The issue I see though, is what will your main wincon be? I think Royal Assassin on a clear board is still a bit too slow.

I primarily play Modern with a splash of Pauper. My preferred formats aside; I love Royal Assassin . I am very aware Royal Assassin is not a relevant in Modern, but still would love to build a deck around my all-time favorite card. I know such a deck would never reach the level of major tournament play, but I was thinking something Modern Casual or even something that might have some success at FNM. I know a lot of blue cards synergize well with Royal Assassin ’s ability (cards that allow you to tap a target creature), so the deck is definitely going to be U/B Control deck, or maybe if it is doable; a Grixis Control deck.
Any suggestions would be awesome or any links to existing decks would help. I am aware of blue tap down cards, and would like card suggestions that are “outside-the-box”.

You said you needed to cut some cards, so here are my suggestions.
- Chittering Rats ; I get that you can flicker it, but that effect doesn't do enough to keep it.
- Royal Assassin ; I feel as if a creatures threat goes beyond its ability to turn sideways.
- Palace Jailer ; Sure you're removing something, but the opponent whose thing you just exiled will just attack you, get their thing back, plus get the monarch. Even if they don't someone else will because they want to draw cards.
-The last one is your choice, but I would get rid of a basic land because you have a good amount of lands and mana rocks already.

The card you're thinking of is Strionic Resonator , which copies triggered abilities.

First of all, what's your budget?
Then, aren't 26 lands a bit too much?
Since you play , I'd suggest two of the best removal this colours have in modern: Path to Exile and Fatal Push , that could fit the deck instead of Anguished Unmaking , Cast Down , Grasp of Darkness , Declaration in Stone , Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and Royal Assassin (the assassin basically does nothing: it enters at 3, it's easily removable and it's effect isn't so good cause you only destroy tapped creatures)
A good angel that could fit this deck is Restoration Angel : it's a chap mana angel, it has flash and it's ability could be used to save one of your creatures from an opponent's removal or to make another golem with Blade Splicer (which it's also a human). In my opinion it should replace Angel of Condemnation , which it's too slow and can be easily removed
Kambal, Consul of Allocation is a good card, but it should go, if you really want it, in sideboard: in some games you won't need it
If you put in at least 3x Path to Exile and 3x Fatal Push you won't need The Eldest Reborn . It's too slow, the opponent chooses what to destroy and most of the times you'll lose before doing the third effect
I understand it's something funny to make if it works, but I personally don't like Bruna, the Fading Light . It increases your mana curve, can be easily removed and if opponent has something to deal with graveyard or exile things (like Rest in Peace , Relic of Progenitus , Leyline of the Void or Path to Exile ), you won't even use it's effect.
Thraben Inspector it's a good card, why don't you make it a 4x?
Plansewalkers: I'm not sure about Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Grim Nemesis , I mean, they have good abilities, but on turn 6 do you really want to cast them? The only way to see if they fit it's playtesting them
