Abusing Hidden Strings + Heroic for serious tempo.
Happens to be incredibly budget friendly!
This deck looks really interesting and I would like to try it out. But I don't see where Nivmagus Elemental fits in. The spell it exiles doesn't resolve nor does it trigger heroic? Can anyone explain or think of better alternates?
Kungpowpow, the spell doesn't resolve, but it does trigger heroic. Heroic triggers when a cast spell targets the creature, not when it resolves.
It triggers heroic because heroic triggers on the cast, not on resolution.
OMG so sorry i'm a noob. That is such a strong combo then
You can also exile a cast Cipher Hidden Strings, after combat damage is dealt you can say "I'm going to cast this on this permanent" then instead, exile it to your Nivmagus Elemental while still getting the trigger.
You may also cast Hidden Strings target two creatures with heroic, and choose to do nothing to them in order to trigger heroic. Because the wording of the card says "you May tap or untap target creature" you can target the creature but choose to do nothing - while the spell still resolves. Another thing with hidden strings is you may cast the spell, then untap the lands you used to play it for essentially a free cipher.
My friend built this deck for fun with loose cards we had lying around and destroyed my 300$ RU spells deck. You had my curiosity, but now you have my attention.
Had a couple goes with it. Man this deck is pretty fun, especially since it seems to play a lot better then my $60+ deck. The only problem I've found with the this deck at the moment though is because of the "Devoted to U" deck, all the places where I buy Judge's Familiars are sold out :(
Just a quick question though, I'm going to actually buy this deck, and before you say, I know I'm gimping the deck, but how would you do the lands if you wasn't going to pay 40 for shocklands for the deck?
Since I can't really afford that, especially if this just ends up being a joke deck for me :)
I gave it a few goes, but it seems to mostly roll over dead to Blue Devotion, Pack Rat, etc.
This deck can be so much fun! What do you think of Akroan Skyguard in here?
-Gridlock +Glimpse the Sun God ; -Spell Rupture +Dissolve ; i would even add some space for Ethereal Armor ; Reprisal for side; totally add Fabled Hero and Tethmos High Priest to put back your little ones in motion, seeing your creatures are almost 1 and 2 CMC
And Also Azorius Charm because yes! haha your deck is pretty cool +1
