Snow-Covered Island Discussion

Azeworai on Brago, Budget Eternal

1 week ago

I haven't delved upon the blink strategy myself for quite some time, though I may be of aid.

There is a budget constraint, wherethrough I shall keep all of my suggestions under two dollars.

So this should go in nearly every deck, and this one seems perfect, and— (okay I'm done jesting).

Upon actual suggestions are a couple categories worth bolstering.

Some flickering and blinking:

Yorion can do quite a bit, and it begins looping with effects such as Charming Prince. Ephemerate is an overperformer whiles Ghostly Flicker, though more to cast, gets the job done. Combined with a counterspell in the graveyard, it can be a soft-lock with Archaeomancer (run that, too). Flickerwisp is just potent. Soulherder is oft the very best card to resolve.

A multitude of card draw:

Arcanist's Owl just keeps digging. Augur of Bolas could be fun. Barrin, Tolarian Archmage is able to bounce your own utility creatures or pester the opponent's board. Elsewhere Flask does its job. Wall of Omens draws many cards and serves as defense for those pesky aggro decks. Champion of Wits loots through the deck until life's end. Fblthp, the Lost is just greater. Golden Egg cycles and draws more cards.

Some removal effects:

Angel of Finality is an efficient flyer with a relevant trigger. Every deck needs graveyard hate! Dream Eater goes through a lot of cards and bounces important targets. Elspeth Conquers Death is as powerful here as it is in Standard. Leonin Relic-Warder serves a similar purpose. Frost Titan locks down important threats.

Snow basics would be a nice addition for Arcum's Astrolabe. It cycles, fixes, and is banned in Modern so you know it's powerful.

And some cards that don't really fit in tother categories:

Angel of Serenity deals with threats and can recur creatures from your own graveyard. Angelic Chorus gains far too much life for the opponent's comfort. Annex is nice, for you can switch it around as better lands come into play. Nevermore can keep changing card names to prevent anyone from casting their commanders.

Fall of the Thran is really mean and I love it.

Now for a few non-budget options:

Cavalier of Gales is an absolute power house, Ephara draws a meiny of cards, and Solemn Simulacrum offers a lot of advantage.

Just on one to note, Conjurer's Closet is going to be reprinted in Double Masters, thus it may drop to within budget.

There are quite a few things I would recommend cutting.

AEther Adept is lacking, Archaeomender doesn't seem to be retrieving much of worth, Archon of the Triumvirate is overcosted, Aven Surveyor is as well, Artisan of Kozilek triggers off of cast and is thus useless to blink, Your artifact tutors do not search for much of relevance, Subjugator Angel is a worse Tempest Caller, Hoverguard Sweeper is EIGHT MANA (what?!), Dispel is too narrow, and Aether Tunnel is lacking in power.

Let me drive this one in. Eon Frolicker just loses you the game. Giving someone a turn is ceding far too much time for them to gather resources and defenses. The "protection from that player" really doesn't do that much.

I suppose that is to be all from me. Happy blinking!

I can’t stop laughing, because I also just remembered another non-bo:

burning down a blinged-out Extraplanar Lens/Thawing Glaciers/Snow-Covered Island deck with a Cold Snap. Saved the day for the table.

I strongly recommend going through all of the old cards, everyone.

Thassa, Deep-Dwelling as a second copy of Conjurer's Closet. If you run Extraplanar Lens you should swap your islands to Snow-Covered Island so as not to give the other blue players a mana advantage as well. I'd recommended against running Dissipation Field as I find it has opposite the intended effect and incentivizes your opp's to attack you so they can re-cast/etb for value.

Cut the duplicates

If you can afford it, exchange Ghost Quarter vs Wasteland and Cabal Pit vs Ancient Tomb (or for Bojuka Bog)

Other good (utility) lands which are always good:

"Slow Lands" which sadly enter the battlefield tapped but, (in my opinion) are worth that downside:

I can also highly recommend visiting as a source of inspiration.

It would really appreciate it if you would visit some of my decks and leave comment there

yeaGO lol, IDK like 50 things all-in. An example of one change is that there should be 1 fewer Snow-Covered Island. That may be useless information depending on why you were asking :)

Is there a way to pull the deck list out of the live edit mode?

Is there a way to pull a text list out of the live edit somehow?
