Ize19 on Pattern Recognition #182 - Flicker

1 month 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!

Hero of Bladehold effects if you go on the Heartless path.

Illness in the Ranks is better if you want Krenko's Command effects.

Blade Splicer with heartless.

Cruel Celebrant

Bastion of Remembrance. Ministrant of Obligation Myr Retriever x4 because if you draw 2 you go infinite with Heartless.

It sounds like you're building an abzan hatebears list. some old cards i recall going in the GW version would include some value generating cards like Voice of Resurgence and Blade Splicer. they played Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin along side Leonin Arbiter. the way they dealt with it was Aether Vial which could be put to good use here (also was a great way to use Flickerwisp on an opponents turn). BW versions also played eldrazi like Thought-Knot Seer which provided some solid bodies and hate packaged into one card.

Hi nice deck! I'd love to see Boros going up up up!

May I suggest Blade Splicer for your deck?

abby315 on Meren to Nethroi

The above comment about sums it up for me, unless you were planning to take it in a combo or other kind of direction! Here are some good Nethroi targets that have low power but make tokens or have good effects when they enter:

Biogenic Ooze Blade Splicer Master Splicer
Maul Splicer
Sensor Splicer
Noosegraf Mob
Chittering Witch
Creakwood Liege
Akroan Horse
Pentavus
Deep Forest Hermit
Deranged Hermit
Nut Collector
Duplicant
Geist-Honored Monk
Ghave, Guru of Spores
God-Eternal Oketra
Hornet Queen
Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
Tendershoot Dryad
Trostani Discordant Trostani's Summoner

Most of the above cards create creature tokens, so you'll probably want the usual: Doubling Season, Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives if you include a lot of them.

Here are some 0-power utility creatures to consider, because they're free to reanimate if they get killed:

Arboreal Grazer
Birds of Paradise
Devoted Druid
Incubation Druid
Faeburrow Elder
Custodi Soulbinders
Embodiment of Agonies
Fertilid
Golgari Grave-Troll (also a great include because Dredge can fill your GY)

And you'll also want at least a few additional Mutaters in case you have Nethroi out and want to trigger it again:

Cubwarden
Auspicious Starrix
Cavern Whisperer
Gemrazer
Dirge Bat
Mindleecher
Migratory Greathorn
Necropanther
Sawtusk Demolisher

...all seem like good includes.

Hope this gives you a good place to start and a list of interesting cards to consider. Many are very affordable. Now I kinda want to make a Nethroi deck.

Have fun!
