Bantman Never Sleeps, He Only Blinks

Commander / EDH GWU (Bant)



things to know:

-this is a real deck, so i cant afford crazy expensive cards like moxes and thing

-this is a casual deck, i want to refrain from using infinite combos and ridiculously broken things

-this deck is not based on rafiq, he is just there to finish the job if needed, please do not suggest forming my deck around him.

any help or comments would be greatly appreciated.and don't forget to upvote!


played a couple of games, won 3 out of 5.Even games i lost, deck was very consistent.

last game i had a sore loser. here is the tale,

my blink deck vs Norin the Wary vs Sen Tripletsturn one norin (duh) and Sensei's Divining Top for sen.... land for me woo hoo

turn two Stoneforge Mystic fetching Behemoth Sledge and Genesis Chamber for norin

turn three play slege, norin plays Sculpting Steel targeting chamber, sen play Sol Ring

turn four norin plays Blood Moon no basics out for either me or sen

turn five sen drops a swamp and plays Increasing Ambition then drops Nevinyrral's Disk turn six

turn six he plays Manic Vandal and sen player scoops

he plays Shatter on my sledge i draw into a plains (my first basic) and he starts ticking away w and increasing amount of creatures. i miracle a Terminus to slow down the pain. draw a Reveillark, hardcast it. The top deck luckiness continues with a Sword of Feast and Famine swing in with having two mana open (a plains and a colonnade) and use the sword trigger to cast a Return to Dust the Blood Moon. then continue by playing a Archaeomancer to recast Return to Dust two kill both Genesis Chambers then in the next couple turns keep afloat by casting a Thragtusk and a Momentary Blink. he decides hes gunna get the advantage by playing a Warp World with his permanent count at 18 and mine at 16. he recieves 8 lands, Memory Jar , Chandra Ablaze , Caged Sun, Solemn Simulacrum, a top and 3 random goblins. i recieve 8 lands, Eternal Witness, Kitchen Finks, Trostani, Voice of Selesnya, Deadeye Navigator, Archaeomancer, Armada Wurm , Gilded Drake, and a Bant Charm he continues to go on a 5 min rant on how i have deadeye and eternal witness soulbound, and 6 mana w 4 blue sources, then quits.

overall my deck came back from a deficit. and i cant wait to see what it does in the future.

Awesome deck! :) I also play Rafiq of the Many as my general, and as you said, I use him to get dirty job done at the end of a game. From my experience - EDH decks tends to be deadly with tutors. In bant colors, we have few really playable options: Congregation at Dawn , card:Eladamri's Call or even Demand . Anyway... flickering is always fun. +1

I suggest putting in a little more ramp into the deck. Other than that I think the deck looks fun.

DoctorQuack i think i have enough ramp Wargate ,Solemn Simulacrum , and Coiling Oracle is enough when i can blink it.

This looks pretty cool :) the constant jumping of cretures from graveyard to play, hand ect.... could be distracting to the opponent. Bantrulz :p

What about putting in an Oblivion Ring ? A neat trick is to play the O-Ring and then use Venser, the Sojourner each turn to move it to another target. Another fun card with Venser is the Frost Titan . Those two cards will continually keep your opponent tapped, especially if you can attack with the titan and then use Venser.

I think you might find a better commander in derevi:


I know he's not well known yet but I think he'll Orkney better for you than rafiq would.

davidcurnan, I just wanted to mention that your deck inspired me to build a flicker based EDH deck. I didn't think it was going to be very competitive, but it's amazing, and incredibly fun to play. Thank you!

I've solely played this Peekaboo EDH flicker deck for a year, and I still love it. Flicker is my favorite! I dislike infinite combos as well.
