My personal choice for a go wide deck is a bit off the wall, I would personally I love jank go for Sygg, River Cutthroat you play tons of unblockable creatures and you get sick cipher cards like Stolen Identity and Hands of Binding also sygg really is awesome at providing card advantage for the late game, but be sure to grab some deterrents like No Mercy and Propaganda so your opponents do some of your work for you

Snacrifice, I'll leave a comment shortly

Here is a Sygg, River Cutthroat deck I have been working on. The main focus of the deck is to generally be annoying as I accumulate resources, but to never be the biggest threat at the table so folks won't target me. Thoughts and suggestions on ways to improve the deck are welcome, though I wouldn't mind some ideas in terms of either making myself less desirable to attack or to encourage my opponents to attack each other.

Sygg, River Cutthroat seems a little "cute" here. Only Copter and Delver turn it on. I'd cut it for something that provides more consistent advantage like Snapcaster Mage if that fits in your budget. There are also just other creatures that would seem to fit the theme better: Martyr of Frost, Mausoleum Wanderer (even just as a Force Spike that crews Smuggler's Copter), Augur of Bolas, Fathom Seer, Grimoire Thief, Stratus Dancer, or Wharf Infiltrator.

You could also just run Deprive. It's almost Counterspell (which is always good in mono-blue) and picking up an extra land that you can loot away with Baral on an otherwise empty hand if you need to can likely be useful.

What about Twisted Image, can be a kill spell and makes Baral and Sygg 3 power so they can trigger Sygg, River Cutthroat

It's just that it is somewhat wasted in a lot of games. A couple more creatures, perhaps - a Phantasmal Image and Sygg, River Cutthroat for example- is good in all match ups.

Tectonic Edge is not as good as Ghost Quarter, if you expect to meet tron. If they ever have 3 lands, the can play their nasty things, and tecedge let's them have 4 (then it destroys one, but they get to tap mana in response) - so the even get 8 mana. Enough for Oblivion Stone plus activation, or Ugin.

Thank you very much for the praise and the nice suggestions, nighthawk8!

Yes I agree and I am really trying to find the sweet spot between strong, flavourful and fun to play with this deck.

I'll comment on all of your suggestions below. Short version: I'll definitely try Smuggler's Copter, Umezawa's Jitte and Thieves' Fortune. Some of the others (like Duskmantle Seer, Thopter Spy Network, Notion Thief and Drana, Liberator of Malakir will go into my "Maybeboard" because there could be a spot for them in the future. The rest of the cards was already in an earlier version of the deck and did not work well enough.

Perpetuate (Whenever you cast ~ you may put a charge counter on target artifact you control or a +1/+1 counter on target artifact creature you control.)

Whenever you cast an artifact, Perpetuate.


Next card: Make a card that triggers when an opponent loses a certain amount of life (Bloodchief Ascension and Sygg, River Cutthroat are examples)
