Sneak Attack


: You may put a creature card from your hand onto the battlefield. That creature gains haste. Sacrifice the creature at the beginning of the next end step.

MrSamus on Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

1 day ago

I'm not seeing the point of Metallic Mimic in this deck. I put metallic mimic in my Marchesa deck back when it was wizard tribal, but you only have 9 wizard creatures in this deck out of 100 cards, and that's the biggest tribe you have in here... That just does not seem consistent enough to justify a precious card slot for metallic mimic. If your goal is to get Marchesa to enter with a +1/+1 counter so she's immediately protected, then Forge of Heroes , Opal Palace , and haste enablers are much more consistent than metallic mimic will ever be. I love Dictate of Erebos , Grave Pact , and Sneak Attack in here though... those make for some nasty games if you have any of them out

koylucumert on sneak attack, sigarda and harmless ...

1 week ago

so lets say ı have a Sneak Attack and a lot of red mana. during my turn, i use sneak attack a bunch and put some creatures on the battlefield. one of them is Sigarda, Host of Herons . then i use Harmless Offering and give the sneak attack to my opponent. then attacks and after that i move to my end step. does sigarda prevent the sacrifice from sneak attack because my opponent controls it?

Thank you for the suggestions!

Oh wow, it didn't occur to me until just now that Godo, Bandit Warlord only untaps samurai, not ALL creatures like I thought... Good spotting !

The thing with Fanatic of Mogis is that his ability hits all opponents, so even if I only get my devotion to 4 or 5, that's still 5 damage on every opponent every turn.

I do like Insult though and will try to find a spot for it!

Blood Moon seems to be quite good, and I might as well try to fit Bedlam and possibly Last Chance too.

As for damage doublers, I think I'd like them to be on a creature, such as Avatar of Slaughter . That way I can hard cast them if needed and also cheat them out with Ilharg, the Raze-Boar or Sneak Attack which I can't do with enchantments. That being said, I might try to squeeze in another creature damage doubler, such as Angrath's Marauders .

Thank you very much for the suggestions! I will change some cards around!

Thanks for the insight, I will definetely consider adding Flayer of the Hatebound . However, he is single card, and I fear that will not be consistent enough. Sac outlet-wise I have Viscera Seer , Grimgrin, Corpse-Born , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , God-Eternal Bontu , Phyrexian Tower and even Bolas's Citadel , I feel like that is plenty. Also, I dont want to make aristocrat-style deck, that is why I did not put Judith, the Scourge Diva and fling sac outlets.

Budget-wise, I find it acceptable to go up to $10 for single card upgrade, and from all cards in deck I miss only Wurmcoil Engine and Sneak Attack , which I plan to acquire in near future.

If you believe some cards do not belong, feel free to tell me.

Hey Bad_Dog,

Thanks for the advice. That combo also looks pretty good. Far outside of my scope, would need: Sneak Attack + Imperial Recruiter + Village Bell-Ringer . None in the deck right now. It's still CMC4 () Sneak Attack + CMC1 () Imperial Recruiter + CMC1 () Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + CMC1 () Village Bell-Ringer = CMC7 (), whereas Buried Alive + Reanimate is CMC4 (). Both 2 card combos.

Interesting one though. Save me Seething Song !

Hi weezel,

I was getting pretty upset last week, when I saw God-Eternal Kefnet and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries then I saw the Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead , I abuse him with Oblivion Ring in other decks, Brago, the Banisher $50 EDH with Reveillark and Alesha, Boros' Crusade $50 EDH with Fiend Hunter , but this one BLEW my mind, it's so simple, good on it's own, and doesn't need any off-synergy cards!

Sounds like your having great success with this type of build! When T2-T4 good ol' Buried Alive is the back-up plan, in pretty good shape. He's the Master of Cruelties should never show mercy! If they winning on T7 that's pretty good too, no fun in dragging the game out past T5!

Agreed Hatred is just too much of a life commitment, even when casting it on a Lifelink creature, the initial burden of life is too much, Leonin Relic-Warder is far more value as an alternative win-con! I always find it strange that people fear Kaalia of the Vast , sit down at table with Kess, Dissident Mage , Prossh, Skyraider of Kher , and Derevi, Empyrial Tactician , it's wrong evaluation that Kaalia of the Vast is the highest threat, even if I resolve a Avacyn, Angel of Hope early.

Sneak Attack doesn't get me a Buried Alive so it's not as useful, in many cases (without a Razaketh, the Foulblooded or Rune-Scarred Demon ) for example. Sneak Attack needs other synergistic cards to be truly effective (unless you have a Razaketh, the Foulblooded )

Sneak Attack + Imperial Recruiter / Recruiter of the Guard is a combo.

Cheat in Imperial recruiter, find Kiki. Cheat in Kiki. Copy Recruiter. Find Village Bell-Ringer / Felidar Guardian . Cheat it in. Untap Kiki. Win.

Hi Sir_Flash,

Until I found your Leonin Relic-Warder combo, there really wasn't much in the way of power <=2 creatures to Tutor with Imperial Recruiter where in my Mizzix, the Storm EDH deck he's critical, nor was there anyone with Toughness <=2 with Recruiter of the Guard . I've added them to my maybeboard now for consideration. A Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in my hand is a terrible, terrible place, I had to add Faithless Looting just to have a tutor-able solution to that possibility, but also evaluating, Tortured Existence and Chains of Mephistopheles .

Sneak Attack is the same CMC4 as Kaalia of the Vast , and along similar lines, only it uses instead of Haste to activate the ability. Early on I did quite a bit with Sneak Attack but if Kaalia of the Vast wasn't working (no A/D/D in hand for example) Sneak Attack wasn't either and didn't need the redundancy.
