saluma on Help with a combo piece

First thing first. Im not 100% sure this is the right forum for this question and apologize if it's not.

Now to my question. Im looking for cards like Felidar Guardian outside of . I've might done my scryfall search wrong but I can't seem to find any cards whit this effect outside of Felidar Guardian at all... and I know Flickerwisp is a thing. If you could link me a successful search or tell me of any card you know I would be very greatful.

Thanks in advance.

In response to your previous statement, "I don't really need a primer for a primer." At the time I wrote my comment you didn't have any information about your deck past the first paragraph, so I guess my comment must've come while you were writing the rest of your primer. One comment I do take issue with is "You know, basic Brago" - thing is, I don't know. I've never played against a brago deck as far as my memory serves me. But that's just a minor hang up. I don't want to seem like i'm nitpicking, but you neglected to link your cards in your primer - you can consult the forums post on how to link your cards here.

As for card suggestions, what do you think of Agent of Treachery ? With it's insane ETB effect, you could just blink this creature two more times on the turn you cast it - likely through a Brago combat step and Flickerwisp or any other Exile trigger. Then you're rewarded for your thievery by activating Agent's third ability by drawing 3 cards at the beginning of your end step. Gross. Now i'm contemplating on taking this suggestion back because I don't want to perpetuate this lol. I jest. But yeah, thoughts?

Try cutting 1 Spellskite , Wall of Omens , and Ranger-Captain of Eos to fit in the last copy of Wasteland Strangler and a set of Flickerwisp . Wisp lets you reuse a Deputy or Tidehollow Sculler that you extracted with Strangler, and if you have >1 Tidehollow/Deputy you can flicker the Strangler. It also flies which makes it a decent finisher.

I don't know if you ever play mono W D&T at all, but in case you don't there are other tricks it can do as well, like flickering a blocker in stalled boards, fogging attackers, flickering their lands to stall, protecting your creatures, etc.

there has been some hubbub about why ive held on to Virtus the Veiled it stayed because Vesperlark and then that spurred Master of Cruelties and for different reasons Flickerwisp after...

Thank you for the comment wallisface!

I have definitely thought about Deputy of Detention and I do still consider it a good option. This is why I have it in my maybe board. However, right now the way I'm playing the deck to stay on the controlling front is to use the Reflector Mage or Flickerwisp to bounce creature threats back to their hand and then either Meddling Mage or Thought-Knot Seer to try and remove the threat. I'm not sure if that's overall a better solution than the Deputy in the long run. I just don't like that they get their threat I'm trying to remove back if they have an interaction spell for the Deputy. The mage can try to remove the threat directly, but that isn't always helpful, so at least this route the mage is a second layer. If you have suggestions on where you could see this fitting in the deck over another card, and why, I'm all ears.

As far as Spell Queller it isn't a card I had considered before. It I can definitely see some potential for. The opponent interaction is the biggest challenge for this deck. But with this comes a change to the deck and that's the tough part. I'm definitely going to try to fit this card in somehow, but you have have any suggestions what to replace that would also be welcome.

Temur elementals feels the way to go. It also gives access to Young Pyromancer which gets a little silly with reef.

Its worth looking at turns 1-2-3 and planning around that- elementals has amazing options;

Old spellslinger cards like Nivmagus Elemental , value like Voice of Resurgence , Flickerwisp and Mulldrifter , a blink subtheme with Shorecrasher Elemental , tribal cards like Brighthearth Banneret and Rage Forger , staples like Fulminator Mage , weird synergy/combo like Vesperlark / Reveillark or Necroskitter , a land animation subtheme( Wind Zendikon , Sylvan Awakening , etc), combo ramp in Soulbright Flamekin / Runaway Steam-Kin / Storm Entity , take over the game cards like Spawnwrithe , graveyard strats like Vengevine / Splinterfright / Thunderkin Awakener .

There is enough support for pretty much anything from control to aggro- it just needs a dig into what synergies you need and what supporting cards make that good.

Thank you for the comment JKRice!

I do like the Thought-Knot Seer . It's drawback shouldn't be too bad as it's being flickered and I can just remove a new threat if needed. I think I would swap in those for the Vendilion Clique . The big reason I like Eldrazi Temple is it makes the Eldrazi Displacer ability cheaper too. That is intended to be a big part of the deck because of the instant speed ability for both sides of the board.

I like Restoration Angel and the instant speed is definitely nice, but I'm not sure how much better it really is since Flickerwisp can let you flicker any permanent rather than just one of my own creatures. And I think the fact that it's non-angel creature you control and she can't bounce another copy of herself is another drawback.

As far as going Bant, that was something I considered as the first attempt at the deck. I was really trying to avoid going three colors, but Knight of Autumn is really good for sure and you may be right about making it ultra-competitive. Not that I expect this deck strategy to be tier 1 by any means. I may end up playing around with a three color version just to stick those in.
