Whispersilk Cloak Discussion

Were going to ask why no Swiftfoot Boots, but then... why no Whispersilk Cloak. Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant is one of those "op" cards in edh that should be banned.

Hey there!

Cool reference to either Oppenheimer (or the Bhagavad Gita). I was thinking of naming a Mimeoplasm deck the same thing.

If your main wincon is DuskCrank combo, I might recommend Muddle the Mixture and Dimir Infiltrator as tutors for those two pieces. Cut Inkfathom Infiltrator and Cathartic Adept.

Whispersilk Cloak and Thassa, God of the Sea are good evasion when you want a creature to connect (e.g with the spike). Plus he protects Szadek (although he is usually too slow to do much good).

Scion of Darkness looks ridiculous. The casting cost is all too often going to be simply uncastable. Why not use a Lord of the Void for a repeatable version of the same effect, for cheaper, and with extra mill/ exile.

Grinding stone is also a bit slow. Mesmeric Orb is amazing mill tech for the whole table. Although it works better in conjunction with a reanimator package. Altar of the Brood is also a good substitute that mills without any extra mana input.

The altar I mentioned is sweet with Undead Alchemist, who turns your hard earned milling effort into a weapon. A groaning, shambling weapon.

Cut Dralnu because he is a huge liability. One Blasphemous act will annihilate you (pun intended). I would rather have a Guiltfeeder or a Sepulchral Primordial

These are just a few things that I enjoy about my Lazav deck, which is a lot of fun to play.

Hot Soup is sadly far inferior to my other unblockable options. Cool card, and good joke, but Whispersilk Cloak only costs two more and is cheaper to equip.

A commander I suggest is Medomai the Ageless. It gives access to both and , he is powerful on it's own but yet not necessarly obligated to cast to win the game. For example, I built a deck using him and abusing upkeep effects. It is really easy to play, since the only time you need to pay attention is during your upkeep not to miss a trigger.

He is also really fun to make unblockable with Whispersilk Cloak or to give double strike with Fireshrieker, yet easy to use.

Thoughts from my multiplayer-centric perspective..

I feel like Haste might help you out. Dropping an Unblockable and activating Ninjustu on the same turn would be nice. But I'm not sure how you'd get it in these colors. Fleetfeather Sandals or Lightning Greaves?

Quickling could be nice. Flying is usually almost as good as Unblockable. Plus it lets you bluff Counters and save your dudes from removal. It really shines in an ETB deck, which your deck could be considered as long as you have tempo and can survive 'til turn 5 (2CMC to save something of value on your board). I saw someone combo it with Mistbind Clique once...it was brutal. Anyway, if Quickling works out for you then also consider Spellstutter Sprite.

Speaking of surviving until turn 5, what happens when you play an aggro deck that tries to win by turn 2-3-4?

I can see why you like Shadow Slice but it just seems too expensive to be using it on frail creatures with no Protection or Doublestrike. Would Hidden Strings get more value? It seems like this card is your biggest wincon other than tempo, which I think could be improved upon.

Some more cards I think you can consider:
Whispersilk Cloak
Sakashima's Student is more powerful in multiplayer
Bident of Thassa

Thinking about it, you probably need some method of giving them Shroud/Hexproof too. Something like Mask of Avacyn, Whispersilk Cloak or Elgaud Shieldmate (among many others) would do the trick :)
