Trepanation Blade Discussion

electromancer on In soviet russia, deck mill you.

Not sure if this is strong enough for this deck, but Trepanation Blade would be pretty funny on your general.

Try to add some removal, you can't counter everything. You don't need Thassa's Emissary you have others nices cards that can give you card advantage, also it don't worth. Since most of your creatures are hard to block you I think you don't need Aqueous Form . If you try to find cheap options try Trepanation Blade like BLEATH says or Runechanter's Pike last one I found it more usefull in a U/R delver or in a izzet (I run it in a izzet and works pretty nice).

BLEATH on Delver? I Hardly Know Her!

This seems like a bad version of Innistrad hexproof. I really don't mean to berate your deck by saying that though, I really like the concept of UB Delver.

The reason Delver is so good is because you can get an early T2 flip off of him. Most lists run anywhere from 24-32 instants/sorceries to get him to flip PLUS library manipulation. Since there's kind of a lack of the former, I'd suggest taking out a few islands for Halimar Depths to control your flips a bit better.

Having interaction with your opponent is necessary as well, especially if you're playing dimir colors. I'd suggest Inquisition of Kozilek /Thoughtseize for hand disruption. They're both great at plucking early game removal and problematic cards for you. As far as your counterspells go, try Cryptic Command IF you can get 'em. If not, Mana Leak s do just fine alongside your Think Twice s.

If you're going to run Nighthowler , you're gonna need a good source of mill. Just killing creatures won't get you there, you need something to help you along. Trepanation Blade is very nice on an Invisible Stalker . Swing for 1, they mill 3 with two of them being creatures and bam, you've hit for 5 damage instead. Also consider some of the mythic swords.

I'm sure there's a lot to fine-tune here, but I'm all outta ideas. Hope I helped, and good luck! :)

eprovince on Inky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?

Get your hands on a Trepanation Blade . It works wonders with Inky. When they have an empty graveyard. The mill happens before you hit. This gives you a chance to get some of their good stuff in the graveyard so you can steal it. It's an uncommon too so it should be low budget.

Honestly the creature that are swinging at you are often the least of your worries. It's the ones with brutal abilities that you should be concerned about.

Trepanation Blade is an all around weak card. Doesn't attack hard or mill much. I promise that if you play test it you will remove it, or you can listen to me and save yourself the time.

Cyclonic Rift is one of the most powerful blue control spells for EDH. You really need to include it.

Trepanation Blade is certainly nice, but this deck doesn't really attack with creatures except maybe in the beginning if you have a Siren of the Silent Song in play. As soon as Phenax hits the board, creatures stop attacking and turn into defenders.
