Hidden Strings

Sorcery

You may tap or untap target permanent, then you may tap or untap another target permanent.

Cipher (Then you may exile this spell card encoded on a creature you control. Whenever that creature deals combat damage to a player, its controller may cast a copy of the encoded card without paying its mana cost.)

nbarry223 on Best Fae of Wishes Targets?

2 months ago

I'm looking for a list of what people would think are fun and exciting Fae of Wishes targets. This can be anything from Hidden Strings which uses the creature's evasion to its advantage, to something like Worship which makes you immortal provided you have a creature out. You can even have a convoluted suggestion like Summoner's Pact into Spring-Leaf Avenger to further utilize the card's evasion through ninjutsu.

I'm mainly looking for cards that don't typically see a lot of play, and am particularly interested in alternate win-cons like Approach of the Second Sun or Nexus of Fate. I'm also looking for build around suggestions. For example, I've recently found Power Conduit which can make any saga into something pretty broken, and has great relevance with persist/undying, or even being able to play through Chalice of the Void (yours or your opponents). It also makes things like Wall of Roots into pretty epic advantage generators.

There are no color or mana restrictions here, just looking for some novel ideas. Bonus points if it is something relevant in specific matches, like Worship is against RDW variants, and can actually be sided in, when Fae of Wishes is sided out.

Any of the decent Cipher spells might be worth thinking about, the best is probably Stolen Identity, which can make you a copy of the best creature or artifact each time Akroma hits someone. There are also Hidden Strings and Hands of Binding, in that order I suppose. Hidden Strings can let you hold up interaction while using your mana, Hands locks down a blocker each time Karona connects (helps for next turn), so she stays safe. There is the black option of Undercity Plague, which helps thin out blockers as well.

Really enjoy the concept of the deck. I think you have, if you pardon the terrible pun, an untapped potential that can be added to your deck.

Untap mechanics can accelerate your own card tap abilities, and give you the rare opportunity to tap an opponent creature multiple times per turn. There's several that I found worth suggesting:

Hi Magic_Aids,

Big fan here. I wanted to know if you thought that Hidden Strings has potential in Pioneer in aggressive and evasive decks. I know it can seem fragile and prone to removal, but it's almost free and synergizes really well with Spirits' activated abilities, flash shenanigans and low curve, especially since the whole point of the deck is to counter removal and protect your threats. Here is a rough list that I've had fun with: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/hidden-obsession-snow-spirits/

Thanks

Cloudpost and Glimmerpost, with Vesuva and Thespian's Stage. With griffstick's suggestion of Orvar, the All-Form, some stuff like Hidden Strings, Capsize, and Replication Technique, you get a pile of blue ramp jankosity.

I've been having lots of fun with Fae of Wishes since the transition. I just added Approach of the Second Sun as a sneaky alternate win-con, since I had the space for it. Open to any other ideas anyone may have, since I have at least 1-2 spots to play around with realistically.

Hidden Strings
Worship
Carnage Tyrant
Approach of the Second Sun

aren't really needed, but they cover some niche uses that I like to cover. I can swap them in/out with some other options if anyone can come up with some fun alternatives.

Hi Kazierts,for this deck you could exploit two spirit's ability:flying and "tap ability". I advise you three cards: 1)Hidden Strings with evasive creatures it's really strong,a dark ritual in blue color 2)Verity Circle with Nebelgast Herald,Shacklegeist and Hidden Strings it's a incredible motor for draw cards. 3)if you don't like it the "tap mode" if you utilise Military Intelligence for draw cards,work very good with flying's creatures. I utilize this cards in my deck Unblockable Pezzent!,maybe in your deck this cards they work even better ^^

It seems that the database is missing the versions of Hidden Strings and Approach of the Second Sun from the Pioneer Challenger decks. It may also be missing the other cards from those decks, Isolate, Silkwrap, Spell Queller, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Wild Slash, Searing Blood, Lurrus of the Dream-Den, and Ethereal Armor. I think the set number is Q06 for all of them
