I'm not good with blue. It's one of my least favorite colors, and yes I know it's also one of the most powerful colors, but I've just never been a fan. That was until I ran into Tetsuko, and found a very unique card that helped change my perspective about blue. She opens a fun little strategy of pinging the board with little creatures, while keep control of the opponents; not allowing them to swing into you. This has easily been one of my favorite decks I've built, it's a fun casual deck, that has won me more games than I thought it would.

So if you're into stealthy, unorthodox, and like a lot of card draw then Tetsuko maybe a commander you would wanna look at! Also be kind and hit that upvote if you like what you see, I've worked hard testing this deck out and trying to make it my own.

The plan for this deck is to be aggressive, and attack every chance you can with creatures with power or toughness of one to make them unblockable with Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive on the board. Many of the creatures, as well as enchantment and instants will keep giving you cards to fill up your hand so long as you keep swinging.

Bident of Thassa Coastal Piracy are the two big enchantments that you want to get early game to help build up card advantage. Also creatures such as Scroll Thief for example will help build up your hand.

Use this huge card advantage to play both aggressively and defensively from oncoming attacks.

Be aggressive with the help of equipment and artifacts such as Throne of the God-Pharaoh will help rack up damage each turn. But thread lightly as you will have to play defensive to keep your commander safe; use counterspells to keep her from getting targeted. She is easy to recast, but if she is turned into a indestructible bug it will be hard to come back.

Also keep your enemies behind with spells such as Frozen AEther and Psychic Corrosion to help them mill their most needed cards. And if they come swinging wide or with a huge creature their is always AEtherspouts and cards similar to keep them at bay.

If you keep all this in mind you can surprise the opponents with your stealthy tactics and slip by with a win.

There are many ways to win, but you have to be cautious with every move. Think two steps ahead, and don't fall into any traps.

I've found this to be one of the most entertaining decks I've built. Very different that requires politics, desecration, and staying ahead of the game. Never have I thought about going and turning sideways with blue til now!
