Ozzirohc on Damage and blinking creatures

4 weeks ago

So i had a game recently, where i had an Agent of Treachery in play, and my opponent had a Goblin Sharpshooter in play. In my Main phase i cast Sakashima the Impostor , so in response to that he uses his Goblin Sharpshooter and sacking a few Goblins, to ping the Agent of Treachery , in response to that I play Momentary Blink on the Agent of Treachery , but he sacks a few more goblins and pings my Agent of Treachery for 3, so it dies, and i get no blink ETB effects nor the Sakashima the Impostor copy. So is that how it works with the damage on the stack?

Also does Sakashima the Impostor have no target anymore since the creature died? is the target decided on cast or on ETB? Thanks in advance :)

Anointed Procession is a good alternative to Doubling Season! Lean into those token shenanigans! A bit pricey though...

Copies and clones can let you get more ETB triggers, and some can copy your general for more triggers. Multiple generals means multiple attack triggers and each one gives you extra votes!
- Sakashima the Impostor
- Sakashima of a Thousand Faces
- Helm of the Host
- Spark Double
- Irenicus's Vile Duplication (can't flicker it, but still another copy of your general!)

Sorry for all the pricey suggestions though...

Sakashima the Impostor Bruvac #2

Winds of Rebuke and Otawara, Soaring City are good removal.

Didn't Say Please on theme.

Altar of the Brood could be a cost efficient engine.

Dust Bowl would be useful with all those basics lands.

I've been playing Yuriko in my "Casual Competitive" meta (We don't run Thassa's oracle/demonic consultation, Underworld breach/mox diamond/brain freeze / ad nauseam), and I've had the best luck running her with Spark Double, Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, and Sakashima the Impostor... Also I do Shadow of Mortality. Brainstorm is super key, if you have 2 triggers resolving, revealing the shadow, draw it, brainstorm it back to the top, resolve the second trigger. devastating. Really fun deck.

The plan was also to add Spark Double both Sakashimas (i.e. Sakashima of a Thousand Faces/Sakashima the Impostor) but seems i forgot to add them to the list. So thanks for the suggestion.

Considering if Phantasmal Image is worth it.

They are considerations of course. However a lot of them require me to build too linear like with adding Epicure of Blood and Cliffhaven Vampire. They’re absolutely great cards and if I wasn’t trying to be more adaptive in my deck building style and wanted to fine point the lifegain/loss strategy I’d absolutely add them. Same goes for Oloro, Ageless Ascetic lovely card but I don’t want to focus exclusively on lifegain/loss strategy. I know most people say to focus exclusively on a specific strategy but that’s just not my play style anymore. I like versatility and surprise! Haha

Lich's Mastery and Drogskol Reaver are great cards and easy wins. But I just don’t like playing like that with my friends so I stay away from those sort of things. I have added Peer into the Abyss and Necrologia as quick wins but more fair in my opinion.

Bone Miser and Psychosis Crawler are in my consideration pile in my deck box actually haha so you’re right on the money there! I’m also considering Shabraz, the Skyshark  Flip. I think I may be adding Sakashima the Impostor to my ninja deck now that you mention it.

Shadow of the Grave is a lovely card. I just always cut it at the final round of cuts for some reason. It’s in my maybe pile in my deck box though for sure. I still have to play test and work out the kinks of gameplay. So it may still make the cut in the end.

Bag of Holding would be lovely if it weren’t so easily destroyed. It’s also counterintuitive to the reanimator subtheme I have going in the deck.

Thank you so much for all your suggestions! It definitely reinforced some of my considerations :)
