Inkfathom Witch Discussion

I'd love to see you fit an Inkfathom Witch in here somewhere, maybe as a replacement for the Pierce Strider you've got in now. Basically a repeatable Overrun for all your little evasive dudes.

Looter il-Kor for Latch Seeker and River Sneak for Invisible Stalker . if its on budget Delver of Secrets  Flip but you will need to add more spells. all the enchantments seem redundant Ordeal of Thassa , Singing Bell Strike , Waterknot could be replaced by Curious Obsession , Hands of Binding , Hidden Strings or spells like Vapor Snag , Boomerang , etc. Hall of Triumph might be too slow and you can only have one at a time. if you add black to the mix you could have Inkfathom Witch for a bit more reach and better removal plus a few revival cards like Undying Evil and Demonic Vigor , and hand disruption. and having a 4 of Rune Snag will probably help you too, to stop the opponent killing your creatures or getting a threat. that all i got, i think, good luck with the brew.

ninja988 - Thanks for the suggestions!! Lemme go through them here.

Swapping card count for Stinkdrinker Bandit and Inkfathom Witch - There are two reasons there are more of Inkfathom Witch . For one, her ability let’s me access a higher bonus more quickly, rather than perhaps getting multiple Stinkdrinker Bandit ’s. Secondly, she actually has a conditional unblockable keyword, Fear. That makes her able to join the attack in most situations without external help like Stinkdrinker Bandit would need. However, you are right, Stinkdrinker Bandit ’s stacking potential isn’t really being utilized. So I compromised and made them both 3x.

Oona's Blackguard - I’ll think about it. While she has the potential to do more discard than Mental Vapors , she’s also a LOT more easily removed.

Sygg, River Cutthroat - I did consider him before, some other people have also recommended him. I feel, however, that Curious Obsession gives me more draw, and also serves as a buff. It also, again, is a lot harder to removed than Sygg, River Cutthroat . So I’m gonna keep what I got for this one.

Thanks again for the comment!

maybe 4 Stinkdrinker Bandit and 2 Inkfathom Witch ? Stinkdrinker will always be 2 mana, so it's not like that will ever be an issue. Plus the buffs stack if i am not mistaken :O the mana color might be the reason, but I see no reason to not run 4 of the Bandit.

Hmm, I think I'd swap out 2 Hero's Downfall and 2 Dimir Keyrunefor it. I thought on some other changes I might make to the deck. Curious Obsession might be nice in place of Curiosity for those times you don't have an Inkfathom Witch. Also maybe 2 Hands of Binding for 2 Hidden Strings?

TheSurgeon Thanks for disecting (heh) this so thoroughly!! Yeah, Invisible Stalker is definitely the best target. the other people here I was really just looking to get the most value out of low CMC, other than Inkfathom Witch who is a win con.

Yes, those spells are a bit high cost for my taste. I basically comfort myself by saying it’s an investment in its indefinite use. I might throw in the extra Shadow Slice, though. Those are fun. You can net a cool 10 damage if you play one just right.

Also, thanks! You have no idea how long it took me to get a good curve for early game. This deck runs its course pretty quickly so I gotta make sure I start strong. I’ll go ahead and adjust my lands and see how that works out. I’m pretty unlucky with land draw, so let’s hope that makes a difference.

Thanks for all the advice!

You're welcome.
