Ize19 on Pattern Recognition #182 - Flicker

11 months ago

Very nice article, berryjon! This was a fun look at one of my favorite mechanics, and was a pleasure to read. I will dispute the article's conclusion though, as whether or not flickering wins games depends entirely on what's being flickered.

Everybody knows card draw can win games, by ensuring you have the cards you need to win, so one of the most powerful effects flickering can abuse is card draw.

Watcher for Tomorrow and Sea Gate Oracle are great blink targets because they not only put a card in your hand, they also filter through your deck quickly, digging 3 or 4 cards deep with each ETB. Mulldrifter and Cloudblazer don't dig as deep, but make up for it by giving you 2 cards with every blink.

Another powerful, potentially game-winning ETB effect is token creation. Thragtusk is well-known for being a great flicker target, as it's 3/3 Beast token comes with a side helping of 3 life, and Armada Wurm starts as a great deal, with 10 trampling power for 6 mana, and just gets better with every flicker.

My personal favorite blink targets are the Splicers, e.g. Blade Splicer who not only produce 3/3 Golems, they boost their abilities as well. Nothing says inevitable victory quite like a couple of Soulherder flickering a Blade Splicer and a Master Splicer every turn, before you finally drop that Wing Splicer and have your Golem army fly in for the win!

Thanks again for covering one of my favorite subjects, I had a fun time both reading and replying to this one! As always, I look forward to your next article!

At the moment, it looks like you basically have two different decks mashed into one. If you cut your 120 cards into two decks of 60, you'll essentially have double the options to play while improving the power level of both. The two main strategies I'm seeing here are Naya ramp/midrange and some sort of bird/flying tribal. I'll give some of my budget suggestions for both archetypes.

For Naya ramp, you definitely want to focus on the mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Ilysian Caryatid, and Knotvine Mystic before using the extra mana to play your threats like Godsire, Titanic Ultimatum, and Atarka, World Render. Midrange will forego some of the lower and upper ends of the curve to play efficient midgame creatures like Retaliator Griffin, Managorger Hydra, and Llanowar Visionary. Some other ramp options include Voyaging Satyr, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Rampant Growth, Arbor Elf, and Utopia Sprawl. Some other bombs include Hornet Queen, Vigor, Archetype of Endurance, Terastodon, Armada Wurm, Gruul Ragebeast, Rakeclaw Gargantuan, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Woodfall Primus, and Warstorm Surge. Some midrange threats are Wild Nacatl, Woolly Thoctar, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Burning-Tree Emissary, and Bloodbraid Elf.

For birds, I'd definitely recommend swapping red out for blue. This lets you play flying buffs like Empyrean Eagle, Watcher of the Spheres, Skycat Sovereign, Jubilant Skybonder, Favorable Winds, Flurry of Wings, and Stolen by the Fae. Some options that stay in white are Sephara, Sky's Blade, Emeria Angel, Midnight Haunting, and Battle Screech. Some additional bird stuff could be Aven Mimeomancer, Pride of the Clouds, Wingmate Roc, Kangee, Aerie Keeper, Call, and Murmuring Mystic. These types of decks generally go as wide as possible, buff the team with anthem effects, and swing in the air for the win.

Cards I see in this deck that don't fit in either archetype are Ajani's Pridemate, Pyroceratops, End Hostilities, Planar Outburst, Star of Extinction, Giant Growth, Moonhold, Double Vision, Furor of the Bitten, and Darksteel Pendant. At least, those are the first that spring to mind as targets to replace first. Anyway, let me know if you have any questions about my suggestions and I wish you good luck with your build!

Liking the list! Trying to build a cEDH deck of Emiel since his first ability is such a great infinite mana dump. Might recommend running an Umbral Mantle combo with Priest of Titania out (with 4+ other elves on the field) or Karametra's Acolyte with ample devotion. Basically any dork that taps for 4+ mana plus the mantle is infinite mana, bounce the Acidic Slime as much as I want to destroy all their artifacts, enchantments, and lands!Or Infinite Tokens with Armada Wurm or Thragtusk! The possibilities! Also, great include on the Incubation Druid, didn't realize that interaction at first.

Armada Wurm? Ephemerate would make double tokens by flickering wurm/spider which would be better than Wake the Reflections

For sideboard maybe Sundering Growth? You'll still get clapped by Ratchet Bomb/Engineered Explosives though

Tbh the "win condition" is just to out value your opponents. I've been meaning to tweak this deck and actually put a game ending combo in, but I'm not sure what that might be.

Typically I'll either make tons of tokens with Armada Wurm or Trostani's Summoner or Avenger of Zendikar

Or I'll just start removing lands with Terastodon, Acidic Slime, Venser, Shaper Savant, or Brutalizer Exarch

This list isn't competitive by any means. If you're looking for a competitive ETB list, Brago, Chulane, and Yarok are all much better in my opinion.

I would argue that Whitewashing is the problem. Banning these things makes the wrong statement...if it is really making any statement. I guess I'm fine though unless they ever ban my dickwurms -- Armada Wurm. Best card ever!
