Veil of Secrecy

Instant — Arcane

Target creature gains shroud until end of turn and is unblockable this turn.

Splice onto Arcane-Return a blue creature you control to its owner's hand. (As you play an Arcane spell, you may reveal this card from your hand and pay its splice cost. If you do, add this card's effects to that spell.)

Veil of Secrecy Discussion

Disasterpiece on Scorched Earth

This is a tricky one, I would seriously consider splashing a third color for access to cards that fetch artifacts like Fabricate but the mana fixing becomes a serious issue. I would happily drop AEther Membrane to do this but a three color deck just sounds inherently unreliable in terms of mana.

I mainly wanted to try to build around Isochron Scepter and my thoughts other than straight burn would be Doom Blade , Geth's Verdict , Mana Leak , Angelsong , Assassin's Trophy , Bile Blight , Commencement of Festivities , Dampen Thought , Dash Hopes , Deflecting Palm , Essence Scatter , Feed the Clan , Growth Spiral , Heroes' Reunion , Increasing Vengeance , Nourish , Raise the Alarm , Redirect , Solidarity of Heroes , Turn to Frog , Twincast , Veil of Secrecy , Whitesun's Passage .

I don't know, it just seems like the scepter could be a really awesome addition to a lot of decks but you would want the scepter plus a fetch for it as well.

Catpocolypse on Infecting my friendships

I don't see the "Devastating Speed" portion of the deck. You have no 1 drops. An INFECT deck has NO 1 drops. That's not "Devastating Speed", that's derogatory and slow. You need, Need, NEED Glistener Elf . Or at the very least, Blight Mamba .

Instead of using black kill spells, use spells like Distortion Strike or Aqueous Form to get past blockers. You can also use cards like Simic Charm or Apostle's Blessing to get past blockers or defend against trouble creatures. Vines of Vastwood , Apostle's Blessing , Simic Charm , and Veil of Secrecy can do multiple things as well as protecting your creatures. Pendelhaven is an important part of any Infect deck.

Black is just too slow for even a mildly competitive Infect deck, because EVERYTHING is at least 3 mana, which for an Infect deck is WAAY to expensive mana wise.

@itachi45 Help me out here.

Greetings Catpocolypse!

Thanks for the suggestions.

Before my deck was with this build I played in a more "glass cannon" way. Although my matches were solely against a friend playing Burn / Goblins. I seldom won it, I was convinced that I could not win the race for the win against the Goblins avalanche.

Currently I have not adopted this strategy "glass cannon", but time or other I will bet on it. I will share with you.

Congratulations on your list, I became aware of the Veil of Secrecy , perfect for the final blow.

Once again, thank you.

Cya!

Writ of Passage seems like a good replacement for Veil of Secrecy.

Have you thought about Lightning Greaves or Veil of Secrecy to help your Persistent Nightmare, and/or provide cover for your Archfiend/Phanstasm's? Perhaps working in some counter spells like Psychic Strike might help too. I also love Talent of the Telepath in a blue mill deck. See my Group Mill Deck for other ideas.

Another interesting idea that fits this deck perfectly would be Haunting Echoes. I've been wanting to find a way to work this into a Mill Deck, but mine relies on them keeping cards in their graveyard to boost my creatures. This would work perfectly with your deck.

No Problem ;) Hope you have fun in this fun format.

Regarding Arcane spells I realized that Veil of Secrecy only works on blue creatures which is why it don't work on Blastoderm. Sorry for the false suggestion.

Blastoderm has Shroud. Meaning it can't be the target of Man-o'-War's ability. Wormfang Drake doesn't target any card but forces you to exil a card just like other effects forces players to sacrifice creatures which is why it's the only card that allows you to reset your Blastoderm. But you have a problem if Wormfang Drake is killed while its first ability is on the stack. That way you won't get the creature it exiles back. Altough you still have the option to say I rather sacrifice it and nothing happens because it already left the battlefield -> Meaning if it get killed while its ability on the stack you shouldn't use it on your Blastoderm.

Cards that forces a cost upon you and doesn't use the word target can be used to flicker Blastoderm like:Keymaster Rogue, Storm Sculptor , Veil of Secrecy (if you have other arcane spells)Also some others but I wouldn't suggest them: Havengul Skaab, Horned Kavu (not in your color identity).I hope this helps. Maybe you want blue or green Arcane spells to use Veil of Secrecy more often while making a non-Blastoderm unblockable.

What's your opinion on Veil of Secrecy? It makes things unblockable, untargetable, and can return your Augury Owl and Omenspeaker to your hand for more scrying.
