When things get hairy, you use the fairy

Modern* Control Faeries Tribal U/B (Dimir)

Description

Welcome to the filth that is fae

Today you will see the disgustingness of U/B fae and how you can win with it. You can win with two ways with this deck:

  1. Controlling the hell out of the board and beating the opponent down with your creatures and

  2. Giving your opponents an aneurism.

I separated the deck into 3 piles, supporting cards and wincons. Their sort of is a gray area, but we'll get there

Supporting Cards

Let's get the obvious things out of the way. Supporting cards are cards that help you win, they rarely take the game, but they are vital to your strategy. An example might be Remand, because of the counterspell.(you get a sweet draw too!) The supporting cards in this deck are: Fatal Push, Tragic Slip, Inquisition of Kozilek, Jace Beleren, Mana Leak, Smuggler's Copter, Spellstutter Sprite, Thoughtseize, Void Snare and Vendilion Clique. The counterspells are essential to this deck, and the Jace Beleren, Smuggler's Copter, Cryptic Command, and Remand are essential because of the card draw. I like to play hand control with Inquisition of Kozilek, Vendilion Clique, and Thoughtseize because hand control rules.(Plus-you get no card disadvantage since I am making them discard too!)

The in-between parts

This section is for the cards that can win you the game, but usually not on its own. These cards are: Scion of Oona, Vendilion Clique, and Smuggler's Copter. The cards are here because of the flying 3 damage, and Scion of Oona buffing and giving all of your other faeries shroud.

WinCons

The cards in this list are usually the cards that win you the game. The cards are: Batterskull(vigilance AND lifelink? also the massive stat buffs can easily make this a large threat), Bitterblossom(these faeries can take the game easily, however, there is a risk associated with this card), Oona, Queen of the Fae(oona is great against mono-colored decks), and Scion of Oona.

Tips

  1. Use most of your fae(because of flash) during your opponents upkeeps/draw steps. This is when they are usually most vulnerable.

  2. Although this is an obvious tip, always save some Bitterblossom faeries as blockers. Unless they have creatures with trample. I hate trample.

  3. Blue is all about mind games! Sometimes, just to mess with the opponent, after they cast a spell, I tap some mana, almost play a card, and murmur to myself "no...not now..." so they think that you have a counterspell. It's obvious, but it's always a fun thing to do.

  4. You usually want to mulligan until you have Bitterblossom. Do this unless you have a great hand.

  5. You can Vendilion Clique yourself to remove an unwanted card and draw another.

That's all folks! Wreck some nubs and give your friends anxiety attacks while casting any spell!

hey man, i have been running fae for a few years now, i love the Oona, we need more of her in fae lists. Up your spellstutter count to 4 i would -1 oona and -1 vendillion clique for the room, or even cut the tutors. Diabolic tutor is a bit slow, also the skullclamps are great draw engines but they dont work with scions, i would keep the scions and replace the skullclamps with something else for draw, smugglers copter is all the rage atm, and is good, if not those would recommend an original jace and a few remands. A few more duel lands would be good, the scry lands are cheap and help for a buget.

sideboard- 2 pithing needles must have cheapness, also a few layline of the void for gravehate is my pref option, i also run spreading seas for 3 colour decks and tron. some lifegain in the form of sword of war and peace, 2nd cheapest and best protection sword.

Thanks for the feedback! I did think that the tutor was a maybeish and I didn't really know about how the skullclamp and Scion clashed against each other. Also thanks for helping out with my sideboard!

hey man no worries, something i have to let you know.. 6.As mentioned earlier, Scion of Oona prevents all of your and only your creatures only from being killed by Damnation. This doesn't work, damnation will still kill all your stuff as it doesn't target anything, shroud is this creature cannot be targeted by spells. Your deck does looks much stronger, if you can get spellstutter sprite to be a 4 of. It really is that good. Also thanks for checking out my deck.
