Slither Blade Discussion

I've made some of the changes above, while I keep playtesting others.

Slither Blade --> Dizzy Spell to tutor for Tainted Strike.

Dispel --> Muddle the Mixture to tutor for Phyresis while keeping the counterspell count.

Fathom Mage --> Vines of Vastwood for more protection.

Ingenious Infiltrator --> Hunter's Insight for better card draw.

Likely the additional ramp creatures will come in at a later point along with Snake Umbra and Dimir Infiltrator. I'm a bit reluctant to adding less conditional tutors for now, since it might take the deck in a very much more competative direction that demands a bit of investment. I'll keep you posted!

From a bit of playtesting, it really seems that the secondary game plan is underperforming. Getting more evasive creatures and going wider is nice for resilience in more casual games, and there is a good argument for keeping the deck like this in the interest of managing the power level a bit. I do have some thought on how we might up the aggression a bit though, do tell me what you think about my thoughts if you are interested!

Underperforming cards include: Fathom Mage, Master Biomancer, Renata, Called to the Hunt, Herald of Secret Streams, Champion of Lambholt (the plan of spreading counters around seems to slow and fragile), Slither Blade, Invisible Stalker (these creatures don't add any additional utility, and we have other evasive creatures that can take Ukkima's place in a crisis), Ninja of the Deep Hours, Ingenious Infiltrator (bouncing Ukkima is nice, but taking away the combat damage is very much a feel bad) and Edric, Spymaster of Trest (seems a bit slow, but probably has more potential).

What we need most is clearly more efficient ways to grow to 10 power. I'm considering cards like Giant Growth, Scale Up, Vines of Vastwood and Invigorate.

We also could use even more one mana ramping. Deathrite Shaman and Krosan Wayfarer seems like the best options to me.

We need some more card draw if we take ou the ninjas, and Snake Umbra seems like a good card draw replacement, as does Hunter's Insight.

We could also use the additional infect enablers in Glistening Oil, Grafted Exoskeleton and perhaps even Corrupted Conscience, but it may be more efficient to just add some tutors here instead, Demonic Tutor, Scheming Symmetry, Dizzy Spell and Dimir Infiltrator would be good choices in that case (without completely busting the bank).

Taking all this into consideration I may soon do the following switches:

Invisible Stalker --> Dimir Infiltrator

Slither Blade --> Dizzy Spell

Ninja of the Deep Hours --> Snake Umbra

Ingenious Infiltrator --> Hunter's Insight

Herald of Secret Streams --> Deathrite Shaman

Champion of Lambholt --> Krosan Wayfarer

Renata, Called to the Hunt --> Scale Up

Master Biomancer --> Vines of Vastwood

Fathom Mage --> Demonic Tutor

Simic Growth Chamber --> Scheming Symmetry

Dispel --> Fierce Guardianship

I think Siren Stormtamer is better than Slither Blade in this deck because Slither Blade doesn't have flying. I think Warkite Marauder will also work better than God-Eternal Kefnet because it will give you a way to deal with blockers and you won't almost ever get any value from God-Eternal Kefnet's ability because you only have 5 instants. If you want another big creature I would suggest Tempest Djinn.

Why are you messing around with gingerbrute and the like when you could just be playing Slither Blade and friends?

Would Slither Blade be better than Triton Shorestalker? It has the same ability and and 1 extra toughness

Thanks 5dollarMTG , I totally forgot about Guttersnipe ^^" . Never heard of Slither Blade before so thanks as well for that. I was thinking of dropping Dual Casting since it doesn´t trigger the pingers and from playing this deck for some weeks now, it hasn´t been THAT useful so maybe something extra to draw cards or an artifact to generate mana?

Cool idea - you could sub Guttersnipe for Firebrand Archer and something like Slither Blade for Flitterstep Eidolon. I'll have to see if I can build a $5 version of this with all blue cipher spells.
