Without Weakness Discussion

Seems like a fun idea. If opponents don't play creatures to prevent the win-con, swing for commander damage.

Ninjutsu isn't going to help you much since Etrata triggers on damaging a player, but the return to hand effects are smart. IMO, for this deck to work you need better evasion and better protection. Whispersilk Cloak is a 2-for-1 and should definitely be in your deck.

Evasion: I don't flying is sufficient, you need unblockable. Amphin Pathmage , Artful Dodge , Deepchannel Mentor , Distortion Strike , Glaring Spotlight , Key to the City , etc etc.

Protection: Since Etrata is a potentially fast win condition (from any one opponent's perspective), they'll gun hard for her. Swiftfoot boots is not enough. You have access to cheap 1-shot spells like Unlikely Aid and Without Weakness , or equipment ( Darksteel Plate , Hammer of Nazahn , Shield of Kaldra , etc.)

xhuggels on Could Black Have "Flickering" Effects?

strictly speaking no, however wizards have been printing weird stuff lately. Look at indestructible combat tricks for instance. for a long time Fated Return was the only card in black that did that, and because of that it was incredibly expensive, but look at the nature of the card, graveyard shenanigans and all, it is very black in the nature of how the card works. in kaladesh they printed 2 more, Rush of Vitality and Renegade's Getaway, the latter of the two actually feeling like it should be a white card. In amonket they printed another one, Without Weakness. Exile mechanics in general when it came to black were also targeted towards the graveyard, so something like Vraska's Contempt and all the similar cards that were printed during that time was also a very rare occurrence up till recently.

Im not saying what you OP asked would never ever happen, as i feel like the longer the game goes on the more initial color rules they have to break in order to print new cards. I am saying that it shouldnt ever happen, and if a cheap flicker effect gets printed in black, it would be because WOTC are getting sloppy/lazy with their card design.

I think Without Weakness and Sheltering Light are kind of pointless. You can swap them out with better removal.

What are your take in cards that protect Chainer, similar to Imp's Mischief like Boon of Erebos, Rush of Vitality, Unnatural Endurance or Without Weakness?

I was thinking in using those together with Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Rune-Scarred Demon to protect Chainer at instant speed. But I don't know if it is too much.

Top recommendations: Burnished Hart, sad robot-Solemn Simulacrum, and Liliana's Contract due to the number of demons your are running.

Undiscovered Paradise/Ghost Town - are ways to ensure land drops each turn

Other Ways to search for lands: Liliana's Shade, Armillary Sphere, Journeyer's Kite/Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Pilgrim's Eye, Surveyor's Scope, Thawing Glaciers, Field of Ruin

Keeping the demon subtheme I would suggest: Ammit Eternal, Baleful Ammit, Archfiend of Despair, Demon of Catastrophes, Demon of Dark Schemes, Demon of Wailing Agonies, Harvester of Souls, Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis, Reiver Demon

Demonlord Belzenlok/Kothophed, Soul Hoarder/Razaketh, the Foulblooded (these three + griselbrand hold liliana's contract very flavorful)

I would remove: Buried Alive (don't see strong graveyard recursion), Temporal Extortion/Dash Hopes (bc if its that important to your opponents they will pay the life), Grinning Demon/Minion of Leshrac (no upside), Gloom/Infernal Reckoning(unless this is a meta choice but its too situational), Sanguine Bond (do you gain that much life to be relevant?), Death's Approach (for hard removal) and Without Weakness

TheKamikazeBagel, that is one of the reasons that I love Supernatural Stamina. Sure, the creature will have summoning sickness, but I have found more uses for it than just keeping a creature alive. I think using that combo with Supernatural Stamina it creates a total of 60 or 61 Polyraptor after a few of them die. The big reasoning for using it over Without Weakness (which I also like), is that it causes a creature to "Enter the battlefield." Forerunner of the Empire would give me a chance to search for another dino or if I used it on a dino, it would activate Forerunner of the Empire's deal damage ability and it would let my creatures Enrage abilities activate. This works great in many different circumstances.

For your Polyraptor, Forerunner of the Empire and Supernatural Stamina(SS) Combo, I would replace Supernatural with Without Weakness(WW); because Forerunner will deal damage to itself and then die, it will come back with SS, but from my understanding it will only come back once, I may be wrong about that though. Where as with WW it would gain indestructible thus it won't die from it's own damage, and with Polyraptor you get infinite* Polyraptors.

*Some of the Polyraptors die, but it becomes a large number of them. Someone had done the math, but I forget the exact number.
