Meddling Mage

Creature — Human Wizard

As Meddling Mage enters the battlefield, name a nonland card.

The named card can't be cast.

@Coward_Token: I'm pretty sure you're right. AFAIK it's also left R&D space to make adventure cards with the same name, but not count as your 4x copies, but could also be stopped by things like Meddling Mage. The Petty Theft part of Brazen Borrower could be printed on another card, for example, but you could still have 4x copies of Brazen Borrower and 4x copies of the new card.

They haven't done this yet, but if I remember right, they talked about it when the first Eldraine set was released. It's one of the differences between adventures and split cards (like Fire / Ice).

Heya, nice to see another Arena player on here, so +1 just for that!

If this were me, I'd make this Esper-colored (Black/Blue/White). Adding White opens up a lot in terms of flicker effects, including (not limited to): Cloudshift, Ephemerate, Charming Prince, Flicker of Fate, Hallowed Respite, which would make re-casting them unnecessary since I see you're using stuff like Unsummon to work that mechanic.

It also opens up some other options like Meddling Mage who can be a real fun one to bounce and re-name cards with to mess with your opponent. This effect combos well with Black's Thoughtseize type cards and a couple blue Counterspell effects like Test of Talents which let you look at your opponent's hand to better pick things to name.

Other rare Wildcard options for Esper colors are Raffine's Tower and Fabled Passage to help secure a good tri-colored mana base, Void Rend for reliable universal permanent destruction, or just search through White/Blue gold cards as there is a LOT to choose from in the way of flicker / enter the battlefield effects for those colors.

Either way, hope to see ya around in the shuffler, or add me if you feel like hashing out some more decks and/or playtesting! Good luck!

Filler? Crop Rotation is a better tutor than Grim Tutor in this list. The sole purpose of this deck is to find Maze's End. For 1 green mana it's in play ready to go.

Chalice of the Void and Engineered Explosives are the stax/control cards that "fit" your strategy. Cost 0 and answer problems that this fragile glass cannon will encounter.

Pact of Negation is in this list to protect Ad Nauseam. This deck folds to Meddling Mage/Nevermore type effects. This is why I suggested Slaughter Pact. Costs 0 and solves inevitable problems you will encounter. I saw you added the Channel removal lands for this reason.

Well, in blue:

Lagrella, the Magpie seems abusable, Neoform gives you a nice creature tutor option in a way, Winterthorn Blessing / Hallowed Respite is nice "removal" and works with the persist. There's also Meddling Mage, Teferi, Time Raveler, and Unmoored Ego.

There's plenty of other value blue creatures as well.

Just a thought. I'm sure there's plenty of higher CMC stuff too, but I'm trying to keep it realistic. I think blue is the way to go if you wanted to add another color.

There's other obscure options like shaving black and using something like Greater Gargadon as your sacrifice outlet, you could explore that too.

Just out of curiosity, why run the 1-of Glistening Oil, and not just run 3 Phyresis? Is it because of things like Meddling Mage?

lagotripha I will consider it but I honestly not sure about about going for a lock with counterspell. Ideally Erayo is the finisher if I fail to keep their board clear enough with the Meddling Mage and Reflector Mage.

Mirage Mirror and Thorn of Amethyst definetly worth a spot here.

Meddling Mage is in desperate need of Riptide Laboratory for instant control.

Intrepid Hero with the power creep were it is today this old bulk rare has potential. I'm going to start testing it in future builds. Thanks for the reminder.
