Sephara, Sky's Blade Discussion

Raedo on Alela, the Prankster

Killercrok that could be true. Though do you cast a land? At the moment I have removed Mesa Enchantress and Enchanted Evening . Both of them didn't do a whole lot and I found some new cards that interact a bit more in the deck. Including: Sephara, Sky's Blade and Polymorphist's Jest . The former making the faeries a bit more dangerous and the latter being a classic prank.

I would remove the Hushbringer as it stops some of your enter the battlefield triggers and replace it with Warden of Evos Isle . This will make playing your big cards like Sephara, Sky's Blade easier.

I think you should define the route you plan to take the deck. Two ways I can see building would be to play Control, OR play aggressive fliers. Melding the two might make it harder to achieve what you're going for. With that being said, I have a few suggestions:

I hope this helps guide your deck building into a more focused direction. Let me know if you need any more help!

How much of a help is Warden of Evos Isle so far? The only really expensive creature is your Sephara, Sky's Blade and it casts itself rather fast, given the circumstances. I would replace the Wardens for Faerie Miscreant . Its cheap and gives you some draw-engine. What I would recommend would be Rally of Wings , since I see it in this kind of decks often and it gives your attacking creatures some serious punch. Maybe 1 or 2 copies of Unbreakable Formation for your sidedeck to protect your fliers to get wrecked by Flame Sweep and/or Ritual of Soot .

I like the idea you have going, but I think you should capitalize more on your ability to play at instant speed. Consider more counter spells like Sinister Sabotage to complement Frilled Mystic .

Additionally, I would suggest trying to stick with 2 colors to start. You will want a consistent enough Mana base to cast Frilled Mystic or any other color intensive cards on curve, and including some cards like Drakuseth, Maw of Flames and Sephara, Sky's Blade will not even be able to be cast from your hand if you draw them. I would stick with more copies of cards like Agent of Treachery instead.

I hope these suggestions helped!

I've really enjoyed Dovin, Grand Arbiter in my Azorious weenie fliers deck. I've also found Always Watching to be very strong and worth the space and mana. Pride of the Clouds is really good, too, but almost too good because it's such an obvious target. Same thing with Sephara, Sky's Blade . Faerie Seer is worth considering, as is Segovian Angel and Squadron Hawk . The Hawks are very strong in my deck, acting as a sort of draw card. Immortal Servitude is also pretty great, often bringing 4 or more 1CMC creatures back from the graveyard for 4.

I think you should try to upgrade the mana-base a bit, or even add in 4x dual-color tap-lands. The mana chart shows that this is blue heavy, so at the least, probably 12 Islands and 8 Plains would help a bit.

Healer's Hawk is awesome. It's got such great value! Windstorm Drake , on the other hand, seems pretty clunky for 5.

I think it will be worth it to cut back you creature count to 24, thereby reducing the deck to 60 cards total, and opening up a few added spots for disruption spells like Negate or Reprobation . Of the creatures here, I think the best are Faerie Miscreant and Healer's Hawk, because both have such strong value for only 1CMC. Next I like with Empyrean Eagle or Thunderclap Wyvern combo-ed with Warden of Evos Isle, but probably not both. Spirit of the Spires, Sprite Noble, and Windstorm Drake seem like the weakest links, costing a lot of mana for less good payoffs. Cloudfin Raptor isn't very strong in my mind either, but at 1CMC, it's an ok choice. I think the aggro strategy will work best when it hits the fastest, so keeping the CMC down to 1-2 for most the creatures is going to get more wins. As it is right now, CMC-wise, it would probably work better with 2-4 more lands.

Bababad Thanks!! I really appreciate you taking the time to look at my list!! I have felt with my play through of this that I have felt like using Derevi, Empyrial Tactician but I feel that her popularity will get me hated out of the game out of principle! So that’s why I run jenara, though there have been some shitty cards that just seem VERY lackluster, Vanquisher's Banner Herald's Horn seem to be very good, but in practice aren't as good as you may think! I also think that I have a lot of ramp cards that I never really see,especially after having 10 whole dedicated ramp cards! And cards like Sephara, Sky's Blade seem kinda ‘win-more’ and the one time I had her out on the battlefield I had another angel that was an indestructible, and couldn’t black with sephara, so a lot of damage went through, so I think she’s a bust.

With learning how this original list works, I feel that I need to add some better and more value focused cards, such as Wood Elves , Sun Titan , Stonecloaker come to mind. And I’m actually going to add Mystic Confluence and the masterpiece Cryptic Command to the list here. I think cards like the elves and such will do me better than all the sorcery spells that I have currently. I also think I’m going to add in either Ephara, God of the Polis and/or Kruphix, God of Horizons / Karametra, God of Harvests as they might make a fit here. Most likely when my cards come in I’m going to swap the Vanquisher's Banner for Ephara, God of the Polis will do me much better than a +1/+1 effect.

Overall this deck needs a lot more fine-tuning and alterations before I’m turkey happy with it. As I feel I just added in too many lack-luster instants and sorcories and should put those slots for more impactful and long-term value/recursion engine(s). But once my new cards come in, I’ll defiantly update this list and see what you think!!
