Pump him once for X with Anthroplasm ability. Then untap him with Torchling ability. Then attack opponent. Gotcha.

Good to see AEtherling and Torchling in here, definite must includes. Jace's Archivist also finds a nice home here.

Kuro, Pitlord and Demonic Hordes can lock opponents out pretty well. Helldozer or Trench Wurm also smash lands if you're into that.

Does exiling Fatestitcher give him the Unearth ability? If so, thats fantastic!

Livelinkon on Mairsil The Pretender ETB

So the thought is to abuse his ETB effect. Two ways that are easy to accomplish this are copying him and exiling him repeatedly.

Pack Rat and Myr Propagator are self reliant copy cards

Grim Monolith and Basalt Monolith provide mana. (there are plenty more cards that do the same)

Horseshoe Crab, Soliton , Torchling , and Morphling allow for untaping.

AEtherling, Deadeye Navigator, and Inalla, Archmage Ritualist are the only exile cards I can think of. I am sure there are more.

So basic idea repeat ETB effect using Mairsil, the Pretender to either copy or exile himself. Do this while generating mana for draw engines and whatever else will be in the deck.

Any other cards I am missing? Other tactics?

Lord_Khaine well for self blink AEtherling does quite nicely, but if we're only trying to avoid removal, Cavern Harpy, Morphling, Erratic Portal, Soul of New Phyrexia, Torchling, Counterspell, Force of Will, Ertai, Wizard Adept, technically Jodah's Avenger, and my personal favorite Cephalid Inkshrouder all do the job quite nicely.

I do quite like Cephalid Inkshrouder also. That being said, I already have a LOT of spell and blocker dodge between AEtherling, Morphling and Torchling, so I'm keeping it one the maybeboard. I feel like if I just want creature creation and not the general utility Trading Post offers, Bloodline Keeper  Flip is the choice. Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast, Thopter Assembly and Thopter Spy Network are all reliable token generations. Considering the amount of loot spells this deck runs, From Under the Floorboards seems like a nice option. Potentially Ghoulcaller Gisa.

No Quicksilver Elemental? CAGE it and use all abilities as much as you want to.

Add Thran Dynamo or Gilded Lotus with Pili-Pala or Morphling/Torchling for infinite mana.

Also, Sage of Hours + Anthroplasm for infinite turns.

Any reason to not include Mindslaver? Add Cauldron of Souls and some untap (as those above) to control every one.Or simple equip Nim Deathmantle with infinite mana.

AEtherling for evasion and every single COPY spell that may put copy of Mairsil on board, ETB triggers, legendary rule applies to copy, and viola, You have another CAGED card.

I've wanted to build Mairsil deck, but he has the game issue as Neheb, the Eternal and The Locust God. They are just too overpowered in my opinion to be at helm of deck. Too many interactions and infinite combos to enable.

But my suggestions are:

A MUST - Quicksilver Elemental - For you may target Mairsil himself and break the "one use per turn" part, he just becomes completly broken

Quicksilver Elemental + Gilded Lotus + Morphling/Torchling/Pili-Pala = infinite mana

Pili-Pala works with Thran Dynamo or any other 3 colorless mana rock.

Sage of Hours + Anthroplasm + 5 open mana = infinite turns

Mindslaver + equipped Nim Deathmantle + infinite mana = control every player

Advanced Hoverguard = Y use Lightning Greaves when You can get shroud for

Torchling, because you can untap, dodge...Nevinyrral's Disk. Cage it and warp everything whenever you want.

Some little more creatures to be caged with the untap Ability would be great

Nice deck
