Zephyr Sprite Discussion

so the way I see it you're actually quite close (33 basic lands means 25 basic lands brings you up to 82)

Sooooo creatures

  • Zephyr Sprite (basic 1 drop flyer, but a 1 drop flyer is good on its own)
  • Wydwen, the Biting Gale (3/3 flyer with an ability that gives you bounce to save itself or add faerie casts)
  • Wasp Lancer (3 mana faerie flyer, that's it)
  • Vendilion Clique (ok, pricey but a good way to say no to an incoming problem)
  • Thieving Sprite (another way to say no to an incoming threat)
  • Silkbind Faerie (untap effects are very exploitable, although often rare)
  • Silkbind Faerie (easy to be a 3/3 flying vigilance for 3)
  • Ringskipper (this one is kinda mostly filler but could be obnoxious to get rid of)
  • Quickling (ok I think this is a diamond in the rough, 2 mana, get a body AND save a faerie from impending doom)
  • Oona's Gatewarden (i know defender BUT WITHER IS SUCH A GOOD MECHANIC)
  • Nightveil Sprite (2 mana 1/2 flyer that lets you look at the top card of your library, with the option to toss)
  • Mistbind Clique (forcing your opponent into an all out play can create quite the opening, timing it before the end of a phase limits their options on what they can do with all that mana)
  • Metropolis Sprite (With anthems that ability could be nasty, especially since early game flyers are often going unblocked)
  • Knacksaw Clique (I hate myself for suggesting this monster of a card but even if you aren't stealing their cards, your permanently removing them and that's just nasty)
  • Faerie Vandal (drawing 2 cards in a turn isnt hard in blue, so in many cases it will get +1/+1 every turn)
  • Faerie Mechanist (counts as an artifact AND sifts for more)
  • Fae of Wishes (that adventure lets you pull solutions out of thin air)
  • Eye Collector (1/1 with a decent ability)
  • Brazen Borrower (again not budget but another great adventure)
  • Faerie Guidemother (1 drop white with an ok adventure option)
  • Phyrexian Metamorph (clone that can hit artifacts always good, especially in EDH)

Other Stuff

My sanity is lasping soooooo…. Also might want to think of artifact / enchantment recovery cards and good ol’ Elixir of Immortality

Vendilion Clique is obviously a good card to play with a faerie deck. The price of this card it's too expensive to be played in a budget deck. That's the only reason I didn't add it into.

Faerie Seer is a brand new card. I didn't update my deck for a while but you are absolutely right. I'll replace the 4x Zephyr Sprite with 4x Faerie Seer to gain the extra scry 2.

Faerie Impostor can be played in this deck too. I like to play card with flash when they have ETB effect, that's the main reason I excluded it. But, I think you can easily replace 2x Quickling with Faerie Impostor .

Thank you for your advices!

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Consider expanding on the strategy of little creatures with evasion especially flying and adding extra turn spells? All my card suggestions will be budget ($5 or less each).

Cards to consider adding:

Can add all these cards for about $30.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 4x Island
  • 3x Forest
  • Archetype of Imagination
  • Jhessian Infiltrator
  • Skyrider Patrol
  • Terastodon
  • Tishana, Voice of Thunder
  • Counsel of the Soratami
  • Concentrate
  • Desert Twister
  • Divination
  • Explosive Vegetation
  • Harmonize
  • Spellbook
  • Venser's Journal
  • Curiosity
  • Curious Obsession
  • Curse of Verbosity
  • Gaea's Anthem
  • Kodama's Reach

40 lands is a lot of lands when playing so many one drops. Most of these possible cuts are draw spells. These spells are fine, but I don't think you need all of them because you have Edric. They can be replaced with more low CMC creatures to make Edric better. I also think extra turn spells give you more than these draw spells as well as other high CMC cards. Having an extra turn to attack thus draw again is very good with the strategy of attacking and drawing with Edric.

Good luck with your deck.

I suggest playing more 1 mana faeries ( Zephyr Sprite ) instead of Opt/Anticipate/Telltime to make sure you have a turn 1 play to set up for a t2 Spellstutter or Quickling. Eight 1-drop faeries is the minimum imo since if you're playing the tempo plan you want Spellstutter to be ready to counter something on turn 2 every time. It's also important to have little dudes to start chipping in early on, a couple points of dmg in the first turns can often mean the difference between winning and losing later.

The main looks good other than that. Have you thought of trying out Boomerang or Familiar's Ruse ? They're both pretty neat.

In regards to the sideboard, you need Negate . Neither J's Defeat nor Flashfreeze can counter black spells, and black has some of the best removal in the format (which are played enough for you to worry about). They also can't counter Liliana. If you don't like Negate, Spell Pierce is also a good option since it's cheap.

A good alternative to Zephyr Sprite might be Faerie Impostor, it's still but it's a 2/1. I'd cream my shorts if it had flash, but it doesn't, though the attached bounce could still be useful, even if at sorcery speed.

So one quick way to cut cards is to take out everything that doesn't fit with your deck focus/theme. For example, cut all of the Goblins as they have nothing to do with Faerie tribal (which is what I assume your goal is). Also, it may seem beneficial to jam every relevant faerie into the deck, but you generally want your creatures to be impactful. Vanilla 1/1's like Zephyr Sprite and Moon Sprite don't really do much. There are a number of Faeries that you aren't running that may be better options than what you have here. I won't list them here, but just take a look at EDHrec's faerie tribal page and you can get a few ideas that might help you both cut cards and find good additions.
