All those creature steals... Wouldn't it be nice if you could keep them (Bazaar Trader )? Is there a similar card that would do this in red or white for current Standard?

Wait... does Cloudshift give you the creature indefinitely? It's a shame the +1/+1 counter goes away.
July 28, 2012 11:39 a.m.
If you Cloudshift a creature you have stolen with Zealous Conscripts or Mark of Mutiny it becomes yours indefinitely because it resolves on top of the previous condition: gain control until end of turn. I can use the card:Conjurer's Closet for this also. This is why it is Creature Steal not Creature Borrow.
So I do keep them and this is standard. :/

Loosing one measly +1/+1 counter doesn't really matter when you can turn the tables on your opponent and take his best creature from him. His 6/6 Wurmcoil Engine suddenly becomes my 6/6 Wurmcoil Engine before he has a chance to use it.
Alternatively I could fling it and in this case: gain the token creatures. ;3

Very interesting deck. I had thought of something similar but this takes it to a higher level. Great job!

Thanks for the compliment, TheMagi. I appreciate it!

Wow, this is a fun deck. At first, I thought it would be too slow in general, but I playtested it a little, and it actually works pretty well. +1

i used blue for ghostly flicker(stealing permanents is fun too.)

@DarthTrevyn: It is quite fun when an opponents' best creature turns traitor for the rest of the game. Oh, the look on their faces... Priceless. :D
@thegeekguy: Well, Ghostly Flicker is a bit ambitious for me. No way I'd be able to pay the mana for Zealous Conscripts and Ghostly Flicker in one turn. In that case I feel that it is simply easiest and cheapest to exile it with Oblivion Ring instead. It's usually not useful for my deck, anyway. Smart idea though.. :3

If you use Mark of Mutiny would you have to Cloudshift in response, or could you wait until your second main phase to keep the haste / +1/+1 until end of turn? I'm very interested in the creature stealing it looks like fun :D
September 27, 2012 3:17 p.m.
You wait so you can use the haste and +1/+1. It's is a very fun deck and probably one of my favorites. Only thing is that it's a tincy-wincy bit too slow for Standard FNM match-ups as a lot of people are using tokens nowadays and I need something worth stealing.
However, it usually does really well in casual and multiplayer matchups. I'm looking forward to Return to Ravnica and what I hope will be a shift in tactics on my opponents part. :3
Thanks for the +1!

Restoration Angel ? Know it's a lot for you mana curve?
September 28, 2012 10:18 a.m.
It was more of an option in a previous builds where I had Cathedral Sanctifier , among others. So I considered it then, but in this deck I don't really gain that much from flickering my own creatures. Besides I feel that Crusader of Odric works nicely in that he gives me some much needed defense and works well with Mark of Mutiny and Zealous Conscripts .
But thanks anyway. :)

Could work, I suppose, but then I'd rather just Fling it instead. What would I use the extra mana for?
September 28, 2012 11:59 a.m.
Isn't Evolving Wilds better than card:Traveler's Amulet or am I missing something here? Doesn't cost anything and land get's on the battlefield.
September 28, 2012 5:35 p.m.
Yeah, you're right. It's a bit embarrassing to admit, but the only reason I keep it there is, err.. because it makes my mana curve look so much better. I like to keep it smooth... Cough -_-'
