Sakashima the Impostor

Legendary Creature — Human Rogue

VexenX on [[Primer v1.0]]-Omnath, the Angry Wet Jelly Bean!

Brynx: You make a good point about Sylvan Awakening ! It turns Omnath into a wincon on ETB, plus we can swing in with our horde of lands! Thanks for the suggestions!

KayneMarco: Is the +1 button working? Your voted didn't seem to stick. Regardless, thanks for the +1! Glad you like the build!!!

dingusdingo: The reason I am not running counterspells here is because I don't see myself leaving much mana up for Instant speed effects. I would have to change the whole list quite a bit in order to do that. Although adding cards like Leyline of Anticipation , Vedalken Orrery , Alchemist's Refuge , Seedborn Muse and Emergence Zone is not out of the question, that is not what this deck is trying to do right now. The more I think about it, it might be cool to make this deck a Flash ETB Temur deck! I would likely have to add those four cards as well as 3-4 counterspells. Which counters would you run if you were me? This would change the deck quite a bit, so I have to be sure if I really want to do this... (R.I.P. Prophet of Kruphix )

Right now this is what changes I am looking to make. Please let me know what you think!

CUT

ADD

I will also be adding Cavalier of Thorns and Cavalier of Storms once added to Tappedout.

Hi, long post. I'm looking to get a lot of trading done hopefully.


I'm putting together a Estrid, the Masked Oathbreaker deck. I need to trade for Estrid obviously, and I also need some specific cards to to complete the deck. Here's a list:

1x Estrid, the Masked 1x Breeding Pool 1x Estrid's Invocation 1x Gift of Paradise 1x Imprisoned in the Moon 1x Mystic Remora 1x Weirding Wood 1x Swan Song 1x Swords to Plowshares 1x Kiora's Follower 1x Bramble Sovereign 2x Stasis 1x Hokori, Dust Drinker 1x Linvala, Keeper of Silence 1x Chain of Vapor 1x Spellseeker AnyX Forge of Heroes

I also have some specific wants from recent sets that I would be interested in trading for:

1x Phyrexian Altar (EMA) 2x Generous Gift 1x Gamble 1x Sulfur Falls 1x Finale of Revelation 1x Evolution Sage 1x Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin 1x Karn's Bastion 1x Flux Channeler 1x Bolas's Citadel 1x Karn, the Great Creator 2x Runic Armasaur 1x Biomancer's Familiar 1x Dark-Dweller Oracle 1x Immolation Shaman 1x Rhythm of the Wild 1x Emmara, Soul of the Accord 1x Teysa Karlov 1x Ugin, the Ineffable 1x God-Eternal Oketra 1x Teferi, Time Raveler 1x Saheeli, Sublime Artificer 1x Tithe Taker 1x Light Up the Stage 1x Priest of Forgotten Gods 1x Beast Whisperer 1x Cruel Celebrant 2x Dovin's Veto 1x Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion 1x Primal Amulet  Flip 1x Neheb, the Eternal 1x Deep Forest Hermit 17x Snow-Covered Mountain 1x Goblin Engineer 1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician 1x Cabal Therapist 1x Mirrodin Besieged 1x Hall of Heliod's Generosity 1x Talisman of Hierarchy 1x Talisman of Creativity

And I was also thinking about making a Feather EDH deck, so I would be interested in trading for these cards as well:

1x Feather, the Redeemed 1x Seize the Day 1x Impact Resonance 1x Defiant Strike 1x Inspiring Vantage 1x Aurelia's Fury 1x Rugged Prairie 1x Sunforger

I also have a bunch of commander staples in my binder wants. I'll obviously trade for them for the right offer, but if I haven't listed them here then they're not a priority for me right now.


You can find my Binder here: Link. It should be about 95% up to date. I recommend sorting by price, since there's a lot on there.

Here's a list of some of my notable haves that I'm looking to trade:

1x Leyline of the Void 1x Ensnaring Bridge (STH) 1x Sakashima the Impostor 1x The Chain Veil 1x Purphoros, God of the Forge 2x Vedalken Orrery 1x Scourge of the Throne 1x Life from the Loam 1x Tainted Pact 1x Nature's Will 1x Opalescence 1x Isochron Scepter 1x Master Transmuter 2x Sterling Grove 1x Karador, Ghost Chieftain 3x Nim Deathmantle 1x Lotus Bloom 4x Puresteel Paladin

...and others not mentioned.

DoanDoan, what gets cut if anything for Sakashima the Impostor and Spark Double ?

DoanDoan on From The Shadows

Frank_Glascock thanks! the decks still going through revisions especially with the new drops in modern horizons. Sakashima the Impostor and Spark Double I think would be really good adds to the deck and would replace the Shapesharer im currently running cause I don't have the other two.

Chrome Mox would be a good add imo if you need the ramp but in my experience Mana Crypt wasn't the greatest add on cause it just produced colorless mana and the deck just really needs colored mana.

Misdirection hasn't really ever been in the deck as my playgroup doesn't run many single target spells that make it worth running so I just ran force of will instead and will be adding Force of Negation when that drops.

As for card draw/card selection it really depends on how your build of yuriko is, if it's more of an aggressive build like I'm going for I prefer my card draw to come in the form of creatures like Baleful Strix , Thalakos Seer , Nightveil Sprite and Augury Owl . If you're running a bit of a more midrange build or prefer a more consistent source of draw then I think Rhystic Study would be the best addition.

What do you think about Sakashima the Impostor and possibly Spark Double ? You would get double Yuriko triggers.

Vendilion Clique is in your creature sideboard. Has it been tested and found lacking?

Would Chrome Mox and Mana Crypt be good?

Has Misdirection ever been in the deck?

You dont have any consistent card draw outside of Yuriko and Ingenious Infiltrator . Would Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study be good?

Obligatory Deadeye Navigator mention.

Also the usual EDH clone suspects: Helm of the Host Sakashima the Impostor

Something like Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder might be worth considering also.

And if you're a bad person, he synergizes really well with the slivers Sliver Overlord Sliver Hivelord Sliver Legion Sliver Queen

Last_Laugh on Atraxa Super Summon

Have you considered moving Atraxa into the deck with Reyhan, Last of the Abzan / Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker at the helm? Reyhan/Ishai are much more explosive for dedicated +1+1 counters, they're a whole lot easier on early mana, they draw a lot less hate, and Reyhan's ability to save counters makes the deck way more resilient.

Abusing the legendary rule with Reyhan is a blast (each copy sees and replaces counters). I.e. Blade of Selves is 18x +1+1 counters in a 4 player game (3x Reyhan, 2 of which die to the legend rule. So 6 counters seen by all 3 Reyhan = 18 counters) and kicked Rite of Replication is 90 +1+1 counters (15 counters x 6 Reyhan). Spark Double and/or Sakashima the Impostor are other options to abuse this also.

Posting a link to my deck for reference. Even if you don't make the switch, it's still the same colors and strategy. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Little Rey of Ishine (Reyhan/Ishai 2.76 cmc)
