Scion of Oona Discussion
3 months ago
I built an Orvar deck (Orvar the Rainbow) that I tried to make weaker by focused on bouncing and freezing... but it was too good for my group! I've been tuning it down since. Atm I'm going for a copycat build.
Definitely play 10-12 ramp that cost 2 or less... Ramping to 5 mana, playing Orvar and cloning lands is mvp.
In the end, I found cloning merfolk to be mostly useless. Scion of Oona seemed to me the best version of them all (it protects orvar/ is an early body to dump your hand into).
I play every 1CMC Twiddle that targets any permanent, which lets me clone lots of lands and then start drawing with Sphinxes, etc.
Cheers and good luck!

That's awesome! I'm glad you like it. I can't think of any planeswalker that would really be a good fit for this deck's theme and colors. A Jace or Liliana planeswalker would work, but there aren't any versions of them that work with the deck's aggressive game plan. Tezzeret is great for the colors, but artifacts don't jive well with either Faeries or Rogues. I think the closest you could come to a matching planeswalker is Oona, Queen of the Fae since the deck has a few cards that are supposed to be her soldiers (Oona's Blackguard, Scion of Oona) and her ability has some synergies. She would be somewhat difficult to cast without a couple more lands (and is generally not that good in aggro decks) but she'd add a lot of flavor.
I would first upgrade the deck's mana base. Secluded Glen, Darkslick Shores, Watery Grave, and Polluted Delta are the ideal set of lands for this deck, but once you have a couple sets of dual colored lands you can get away with all basics for the rest of it. I recommend getting 4 Secluded Glen and some mix of Darkslick Shores/Watery Grave to replace Choked Estuary and River of Tears. You don't really need any more fixing beyond that to have a consistent mana base unless you were to buy a set of Mutavault.
Once your lands are good, fill out the playset (all four copies) of Brazen Borrower and get a set of Fatal Push for the main deck. Recently I've been liking the fourth Spellstutter Sprite as well, but that's up to you.

In my experience, playing modern fairies is mostly about playing the control game and protecting your biggest threat of Bitterblossom.
I would suggest putting a couple Snapcaster Mage in the main. Spell Snare is great with snapcaster so I would recommend that as well. Fatal Push, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Liliana, the Last Hope are also things to consider.
For the sideboard, I would 100% recommend Nihil Spellbomb and Collective Brutality. Collective Brutality is really important because sometimes you will really want the life gain because of Bitterblossom.

I really wanted to keep my mouth shut about this but It's been nagging at the back of my mind the last few days.
Is there any particular reason you aren't running 1 or 2 of Mistbind Clique? I realize it's better in a tempo shell of Faeries, but then again you are running Scion of Oona which is heavy tempo (IMO).
It's terrible against some decks but great against others where U/B faeries would have a poor matchup. Take Tron for example. Against sorcery speed decks, it will give you an extra turn to smash.
Lastly, if you are dying to Bitterblossom, it will allow you to champion it off the battlefield to give yourself the extra turns (You would have died to Bitterblossom) necessary to defeat your opponent.
Again this could all be useless information as it appears you may have a somewhat control transformative sideboard. If it were me, I would pull out 1x Thoughtseize (this will drop you to seven one drop discard spells) for 1x Mistbind Clique.
What do you think?

You might also look at Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive, although you'd lose synergy with him with even one Scion of Oona in play. Still, depending on your luck per game he could help you at least land some early damage w/o having to worry about blockers until your Scions come out.

Perhaps a few effects such as Scion of Oona, for it adds much dint to the field whiles fizzling a kill spell.
