When I think of Nagato, the card that comes to mind is K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth since he uses his life as a means for power. Reminds me of Nagato and how messed up his body ends up being. But being mono black wouldn't let you represent his other abilities effectively. I would use Jodah, Archmage Eternal since he has that "I can do anything" feel that Nagato has with all of his insane abilities.

As far as the attractive and repulsive forcers are concerned, I think of Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, Erayo, Soratami Ascendant  Flip Mass Manipulation, Perplexing Chimera, etc.

The summoning Pain can be represented by Tooth and Nail, Genesis Wave, and the like.

Absorbing chakra sounds like Mana Drain, Draining Whelk, Plasm Capture, and Spell Swindle.

Mind's Dilation could work for reading a person's mind. There's also Sen Triplets.

Living Death, Necromantic Selection, Ruinous Ultimatum, Eerie Ultimatum, and many other cards can represent his control over life and death.

This deck makes me chuckle. I love seeing Swans of Bryn Argoll get some play.

I'm not sure what your stance is on combos, but seeing the Swans I feel compelled to tell you about Chain of Plasma in case you hadn't heard of it. Target the Swans with it and make sure you have another card in hand for the initial discard then you're golden, you get to draw as many cards as you want as you keep copying CoP and targeting your Swans.

The combo conflicts with Kira, Great Glass-Spinner but that isn't always going to be on the board.

Another card to offer up for consideration is Brash Taunter, which I think could fit quite well in the deck. With your commander on the board the Taunter makes for an annoying blocker for an attacking player to deal with, it can add to the burn strategy by hitting opponents for damage equal to the largest creature on the board, having it out when you cast Blasphemous Act is always fun, and things can get pretty silly with Fiery Emancipation on the board.

Brash Taunter also combos with Chain of Plasma and Archmage Emeritus, with the Archmage drawing you a card each time you copy CoP so that you always have another card in hand to copy it.

I am attempting to build a UW Stoneblade deck with Stoneforge Mystic, Batterskull, Kaldra Compleat, Maul of the Skyclaves, etc.

The question is in regards to playing artifacts using the living weapon keyword ability while Kira, Great Glass-Spinner is on the battlefield and under our control.

Is it safe to assume the since living weapon does not specifically target, casting spells such as Batterskull or Kaldra Compleat will succed and either will become attached to there respective germ token without the equip/attach getting countered by Kira?

Revan0287 I don’t update my SB as much as I do my MB. I have Geist of Saint Traft and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner because at the time Grixis Shadow and W/U/r Control were topping the format. Sanctifier is moderately okay against Shadow and utterly useless against Control. Perhaps the format is in a different place. I haven’t gotten out to play in quite a while but I adjust my sideboard when I do. I find discussing SB slots to be hit or miss as that is more targeted to a local meta. I’ll consider Sanctifier but will wait to play in my local meta before I make any change.

I will note that Damping Sphere is probably more effective against Tron than Void Mirror. Just because Tron runs a lot of colorless cards doesn’t mean they can’t just use colored mana while playing those spells so Void Mirror is easier for Tron to play around. Mirror is great for the MH2 Evoke Incarnations. Considering Grief and Solitude are by far the most played, an evoked Grief is probably coming out quicker than Void Mirror and I think spirits have enough resiliency between Rattlechains, Drogskol Captain, Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, and to a lesser extent Glasspool Mimic  Flip as well as Geist of Saint Traft. I think including Solitude becomes a weak argument for Mirror. But to reiterate what I said earlier about SB slots, your local meta may warrant it.

As a side note Kira, Great Glass-Spinner will only protect the Lord of the Unreal and Krovikan Mist. The other illusions can still be targeted and although the spell itself will be countered, the sacrifice trigger will still go on the stack before priority changes.

I have found that using 4 Maskwood Nexus and 4 Grand Architect (which can be used to help cast the nexus) adds a little more, especially if the game goes long.

For more board protection I like to run Kira, Great Glass-Spinner. Could help unless you are trying to target your own stuff at some point.

Thanks for your reply.

I will buy Spectral Adversary and try it. I have a Kira, Great Glass-Spinner I do like it a lot maybe I will use it more often.

What's your guys opinion on Remorseful Cleric for the graveyard hate instead of Rest in Peace? I do like having the option of being a creature but doesn't solve the issue of being permanently dealing with opponents graveyard.

Glad you like Skyclave Apparition its a great card that has served me well. I like Shacklegeist personally as it can help you stall a few turns to get that win. I haven't played much spirits since MH2 though so I'm not sure how it is at current. Spectral Adversary doesn't impress me much. Unless you have a vial it's 4 mana minimum for a meh effect imo. If you are trying to protect your creatures add more Selfless Spirits it's far cheaper mana wise. Or you could even go with Kira, Great Glass-Spinner if you're really worried about target removal. If you're trying to phase out your opponent's stuff you can already deal with most threats with apparition, pte, Spell Queller, or shackle. If you wanna try it out I'm sure it'll have its moments but I suspect most of the time you'll wish you had something else.
