Deadeye Navigator Discussion

What kind of an environment do you want to play this deck in? What turn do you hope to get going by?
The tough thing I found with Yarok is having too much of a focus on etb effects. You have to run some more generic mana ramp, such as more two mana artifacts or sorceries, so you’re more likely to cast him early. Stuff like Edge of Autumn, Farseek and Rampant Growth are good. More Signets too.
Otherwise you’ve got some nice pieces here. The plan to is to win with Craterhoof Behemoth, so you’ll also need a critical mass of creatures to do it with one hit, or leave yourself open to a lot of removal.
I also see Deadeye Navigator here; Peregrine Drake (or Great Whale or Palinchron) is super powerful with Yarok, and goes infinite with Deadeye allowing you to flicker anything and everything you have as much as you want.

Since you’re going the etb route with him here’s a number of cards to consider:

Cards like Soulherder, Pride Sovereign, and Galepowder Mage might be too slow/conditional to be effective. Pride sovereign is just a beater, which you may find lacklustre over time. Blade of Selves is a little expensive but I think it’s ridiculous in flicker builds.
One last thing to think about. You may not have enough mana to operate smoothly. You may want to consider adding 2-4 more lands, and possibly a couple more mana rocks to consistently be able to cast your spells. It depends on how your etb ramp works out though.

Mulldrifter seems like a shoe-in.
Deadeye Navigator is very strong.
Duplicant has the removal.
Ephara, God of the Polis can draw you 2-3 extra cards per turn cycle, which is awesome.
Glen Elendra Archmage is a repeatable Negate effect.
Knight of Autumn is an extra Rec sage.
Kiora's Follower can ramp or untap Roon.
Palace Jailer can exile things permanently if you blink him.
Perplexing Chimera is just bat-shit crazy, it messes the game up so much.
Reveillark resurrects people.
Solemn Simulacrum is still good ol' sad robot.
Soul of the Harvest... does its thing.
Sundial of the Infinite can skip the end step, permanently exiling a creature with Roon.
Guardian Project is bonkers.

The one thing I would think about when you tune your list is the limiting factors in what you want to do. Peregrine Drake is a nice choice with Isperia, but while you can grab that half at any time, WU is a challenging combination for grabbing Deadeye Navigator, especially on a budget. You have Archaeomancer and an ETB subtheme, so why not include some number of Ghostly Flicker, Displace, Illusionist's Stratagem, and Mnemonic Wall? Dusk / Dawn would be a good late-game finisher that can bring all the pieces back, and cards like Militia Bugler that care about low toughness would allow the deck a bit of filtering in place of tutors.

Cards i really like for the deck are Deadeye Navigator, Kiora Bests the Sea God, Rune-Scarred Demon, Soul Herder, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling. A lot of cards i do like but didnt put in top 5 cause i think its like your preference on fav ETB triggers you wanna add.
Cards in the maybeboard i dont think should go in are, Baleful Strix, Angel of Despair, Ashen Rider, Render Silent, Disinformation Campaign and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth. Also Wishclaw Talisman will only be really good if you have repeatable ways to flicker it probably at instant speed, and Thassa's Oracle you will only want if youre going for a combo finish with her.

xram666 thanks for the suggestions. The thing that makes Deadeye so good is the immediate flicker, rather than a 'end of turn' return. This allows for repetition if mana permits or combos. For instance, Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake is infinite mana. Add Archaeomancer and Ghostly Flicker and you have infinite ETBs (if ever relevant), X spells like Blue Sun's Zenith can also be used to draw someone out.
I have implemented the other changes and will test them out, not sure I can let Deadeye go though unless something comes up with a like ability...

Hi. I always like budget list because I tend to have a lot of decks.
Some suggestions for cost reduction:
- Sejiri Refuge for Irrigated Farmland
- Mistmeadow Witch for Deadeye Navigator
- Sky Diamond and Marble Diamond for Sol Ring and Azorius Signet
- Mask of Avacyn for Swiftfoot Boots
I know that some of the cards are really a good deal worse. In how far this is still bearable for the deck you have to decide ;-)
