Sakashima the Impostor Discussion

greyninja on How Popular is Chromatic Lantern ...

2 weeks ago

I was stoked when they spoiled it for original Rav! Definitely design space they needed to get into. Now we're seeing it on creatures

Theres a few mono and dual color decks that would benefit from Chromatic Lantern: Sakashima the Impostor, Empress Galina, Memnarch, I run it in Etali, Primal Storm, I ran it in Olivia Voldaren, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is another good candidate

Overall better for 3c decks; but there's applications all over!

nascentbodhi on Yuriko... because who needs friends anyway?

It seems like many Yuriko lists have moved to labfish combos, which I'm not a big fan of. For this build my goal is to continue using more of a burn strategy with a subtheme of turns. That being said, it could easily be updated to support the newer combo based wincons.

Removed: Countersquall, Curfew, Dark Ritual, Darkness, Far / Away, Memory Lapse, Mission Briefing, Treasure Cruise, Fallen Shinobi, Mist-Syndicate Naga, Sakashima the Impostor, Spectral Sailor, Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive, Bitterblossom, Smoke Shroud, Bojuka Bog, Castle Vantress, Mystic Sanctuary, Grafdigger's Cage

Added: Arcane Signet, Bloodstained Mire, Chrome Mox, Damping Sphere, Exotic Orchard, Force of Despair, Frantic Search, Gitaxian Probe, Mausoleum Wanderer, Plaguecrafter, Snap, Spell Snare, Temporal Mastery, Universal Automaton

Sakashima the Impostor clone tribal is very fun. Scales to the table, and can appease a Timmy assuming another Timmy is present

Great deck! How do you feel about adding Sakashima the Impostor? A copy of Yarok could be useful.

Sakashima the Impostor

PurePazaak on Ezuri's Claw

Love to see Ezuri played! This list is far different from mine - I love how flexible this guy is!

I've got one question and a couple suggestions...

Q: What are some of your main targets for Ezuri's counter distribution? Ezuri usually wins by dumping power onto some good beaters (or Sage of Hours, but y'know, whatever), so which creatures do you want to get big?

As far as suggestions go, you'll want these in here for sure:

LordBlackblade on Complex/Diverse Decks?

2 months ago

I just recently built a Sakashima the Impostor clone-based deck. The deck is quite literally different every time you play it. You have the variance in your own deck, coupled with the variance in your opponents' decks, coupled with the variance in who you play with as well. I've literally never played the same game twice.
