Agent of Treachery

Creature — Human Rogue

When Agent of Treachery enters the battlefield, gain control of target permanent.

At the beginning of your end step, if you control three or more permanents you don't own, draw three cards.

@Made_Compleat yes I do know for certain ones it's owner vs some its controller. The Brago, King Eternal is more for things like Agent of Treachery, Gonti, Lord of Luxury -esque cards.

However saying that with your input I will probably cut a lot of that excess owner based cards out and replace it.

Thanks for your input!

Diluvian Primordial and Scourge of Fleets could be easy cuts, Agent of Treachery is a potential win-con if the infinite turns combo gets started. The Magic Mirror could probably be cut too, I have yet to see it perform well in my play testing.

Tutors would be nice, I hadn't really looked into the options for them yet. Cloudstone Curio sounds good, another way to get the infinite mana combo started, or get additional card draws / recur from graveyard. Thanks for the advice!

I would honestly cut some of those chunky 7-drops like Agent of Treachery or Diluvian Primordial along with Storm of Saruman since you're not able to cheat them into play somehow, and they aren't combo pieces (as far as I can see, that is) like Palinchron or Great Whale. You may also wanna consider a few more Tutors like Mystical Tutor & Solve the Equation since you're running a few creatures that can grab them from your graveyard. These are the things that make a deck consistent and win you games!

Also, have you considered Cloudstone Curio here?

In my honest opinon, Roon of the Hidden Realm is going to be your best option for a Bant blink deck, since he's consistent, repeatable blink in your command zone. If you want some ideas for a blink list, This is the Roon list I built and have a lot of fun with.

While I can appreciate that you're trying to play on a very tight budget, here, the more you're willing to invest into your deck over time, the better it'll turn out in the long run. Nonbasic lands, mana fixing, mana rocks, ramp, interaction, those are all going to be a part of any deck you build. Save yourself $25 on Thrasios, since he doesn't really do anything for this deck, invest that into things like Three Visits, Kodama's Reach, Farseek, Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, and other ramp pieces. Also, you may want to consider what your win conditions are. Do you blink a Craterhoof Behemoth a million times? Do you steal all of your opponent's stuff with Agent of Treachery? If you have any questions or anything like that, feel free to shoot me a message or just respond to this comment.

Ozzirohc on Damage and blinking creatures

So i had a game recently, where i had an Agent of Treachery in play, and my opponent had a Goblin Sharpshooter in play. In my Main phase i cast Sakashima the Impostor , so in response to that he uses his Goblin Sharpshooter and sacking a few Goblins, to ping the Agent of Treachery , in response to that I play Momentary Blink on the Agent of Treachery , but he sacks a few more goblins and pings my Agent of Treachery for 3, so it dies, and i get no blink ETB effects nor the Sakashima the Impostor copy. So is that how it works with the damage on the stack?

Also does Sakashima the Impostor have no target anymore since the creature died? is the target decided on cast or on ETB? Thanks in advance :)

Nice brew! I find Lavinia of the Tenth does a ton of work in my Esper blink deck - maybe test it out in place of Exclusion Mage, or Barrin?

Also, what do you think of Cavalier of Dawn to replace Meteor Golem? It works well enough for me in Esper, so I would think would be easy enough to cast in dual color. IME, giving someone a 3/3 body is 100% worth saving the 2 mana.

And finally - Ghostly Flicker and/or Illusionist's Stratagem could be solid includes if you want to change up how your "value" works: Since you have lots of creatures that return instants/sorceries, it goes from with Momentary Blink to , but repeatable as long as you have Archaeomancer or friends out. These also fill a different role than Semester's End since they return the targets to the field immediately, and not at the next end step. (Can also go infinite mana/draw with Peregrine Drake as the second target).

Lastly... (I promise, lol) how well do you find Mind Flayer works in blink, out of curiosity? I run Agent of Treachery and I find if it isn't immediately removed after casting, I pretty much win.

Happy blinking!

Added a few more looters, will have to pick up an Agent of Treachery. Removed some of the mediocre cards for the deck, and added a couple cards like Wonder in order to get in the redzone easier. chivalruse, you gave a few other good suggestions, I like Raffine as well, I'll have to pick one up at some point, but many of the other looters I added should suffice decently as well.
