Soulherder Discussion

Hello. I have been studying Blink Brago Control for few weeks and I have to tell that I probably have found my place in MTG - I need to build this deck. The job that you had done is so good.. I'm gonna create my deck based on yours. Why ? Because your deck is IMO lacking some essential cards and OFC an UPDATE. Yep... you really need an update. Im casual player, any feedback is very appreciated. So I encourage everybody who is reading this to a discussion.

card draw / card selection

Rhystic Study - Every blue commander should play this, why don't we try - gives consistent draw to get more cards..

Mystic Remora - more draw..

Esper Sentinel - kinda new card in magic - gets consistent draw

Teferi, Master of Time - perfect for multiplayer commander and also 1v1 - +1 in opponents' turns. Discard helps to cast Delve ability or to play Snapcaster Mage - its fine I think.

Dig Through Time - Powerful because of delve.

Search for Azcanta  Flip - enables delve cards and lets to search graveyard for more options. There are some payoffs like Snapcaster Mage , Sun Titan and more.

Blink

Luminous Broodmoth - Mass removal - even more profit! more blinking!

Soulherder - Every blink deck, please. This enables to get more blinking triggers and payoffs at the same time.

Ghostway && Eerie Interlude - Why not ?

removal

Time Wipe - powerful mass removal spell, despite Supreme Verdict or Wrath of God :)

Disallow - extended counterspell...

Trickbind - counter triggers sometimes are gold worth.

Dovin's Veto - One of the most powerful counterspells in magic. Guesss what. It's Azorius colors ;)

Path to Exile - classic

protection

Lightning Greaves - protect commander

Linvala, Shield of Sea Gate - lets sacrifice it anytime we need...

mana

Thran Dynamo - IMO really underappreciated mana base card.

updates

Phantasmal Image - worse version (but only ... ) of Clever Impersonator

Snapcaster Mage - also seems like you are missign something... Play mass removal or counterspell, or anything discarded even by Teferi, Master of Time

Teferi, Master of Time - Isn't this a must-play in an BW deck now?

Teferi, Hero of Dominaria - Isn't it too much mana?

Hey, good budget upgrade of the precon.

You're best line of play here is Ranar + Felidar Guardian + Restoration Angel which equals infinite 1/1 Spirits. Guardian and Restoration infinite blink each other and each time one of them blinks it's one instance of exile to trigger Ranar. Because Restoration has flash then you can do this combo at instant speed on your last opponent's turn to create infinite Spirits to then attack with them on your next turn as a win condition.

Flickerwisp also combos with Restoration Angel and this combo is different since it's delayed. At each player's end step Ranar + Flickerwisp + Restoration creates two Spirits. With Flickerwisp in your control blink it with Restoration; Flickerwisp ETB and blinks Restoration. Restoration doesn't return to the battlefield from exile until the next player's end step. At the end step Restoration ETB to blink Flickerwisp, Flickerwisp ETB to blink Restoration and repeat on the next player's end step. At each end step you get two separate exiles for two triggers of Ranar.


Reconnaissance Mission is good repeatable draw with 1/1 flying Spirits since each one that does combat damage to an opponent you draw a card. Mentor of the Meek can trigger to draw for one mana each time a 1/1 Spirit or 2/2 Spirit is created.

Palace Jailer is powerful repeatable opponent creature exile with blink especially with Soulherder . When Jailer ETB you become the monarch which is at your end step you draw a card. Only one player can be the monarch at one time and how a player becomes the monarch is they do combat damage to the player who's the monarch or they play a card that makes them the monarch.

What makes Jailer powerful with blink is that creatures he exiles don't return to their owners unless you lose the monarch to an opponent. When Jailer leaves the battlefield from being blinked all the creatures he has exiled stay exiled. Then when Jailer ETB you become the monarch which makes it difficult to lose the monarch. 1/1 Spirits are also good flying blockers to help you to keep the monarch as well as Ghostly Prison and other cards like it make it more difficult for an opponent to attack you to do combat damage to you.


Nimbus Maze , Port Town , Prairie Stream , Skycloud Expanse , Temple of Enlightenment , Irrigated Farmland , Ash Barrens are some budget land upgrades that could replace some basic lands, Azorius Guildgate and Meandering River .

Good luck with your deck.

Soulherder is just really really good in any deck built for etb effects.

Edits 5/18

Out:

1x Whirler Rogue 1x Thran Dynamo 1x Stonehorn Dignitary 1x Sphinx of Uthuun 1x Phyrexian Metamorph 1x Mycosynth Wellspring 1x Meteor Golem 1x Knight-Captain of Eos 1x Clever Impersonator 1x Captain of the Watch 1x Basalt Monolith 1x Blasting Station 1x Kor Cartographer 1x Mind Stone 1x Nevermaker 1x Omen of the Sea

In:

1x Blind Obedience 1x Cloud of Faeries 1x Cloudblazer 1x Sphinx's Revelation 1x Sun Titan 1x Thought Vessel 1x Authority of the consuls 1x Cloudshift 1x Ghostly flicker 1x Soulherder 1x Rishadan cutpurse 1x Rishadan footpad 1x Prismatic lens 1x Hierophant’s chalice 1x Azor’s elocutors 1x Access tunnel

Hierophant's Chalice is a great new addition to possible wipe the table with Strionic Resonator combo going.

Azor's Elocutors is a possible alternative win condition. It was between this and Approach of the Second Sun , but I feel like I’m going to give this a whirl and see how it goes.

Rishadan Cutpurse and Rishadan Footpad are two I’ve been wanting to try for a while but haven’t had in my collection. Was able to pick them up and curious to see the look on my playgroup’s faces when these guys get going with Brago...haha good times..amIright??..well for me at least.

Cloud of Faeries was added for a cheaper alternative Peregrine Drake / Palinchron to go along side both Brago and Deadeye Navigator .

Cloudshift , Ghostly Flicker and Soulherder were added in case something happens to Brago or for more ways to abuse or ETBs.

Cloudblazer and Sphinx's Revelation for some more card draw.

Sun Titan for recursion.

Very eager to be able to try out Access Tunnel if this cards going to shine, Brago’s the perfect target to show its true potential.

B/C your going without Soulherder , I'd play to the combo side of things and run Mainboard Felidar Guardian (and b/c your in blue some Clone dudes). Do the whole Cast Felidar Guardian on lets say Phantasmal Image you had in play, now as that comes back into copy Felidar Guardian and target the Felidar Guardian (you just casted) in play then, repeat. The pay off is well pick your poison; Altar of the Brood for mill, Soul Warden esk for all the life you could want, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit to dish out some +1/+1 counters (up to 4 defense) or add red for Purphoros, God of the Forge (theirs a 2 mana card that does 1 damage on EBT but, I don't remember the the card atm). food for thought, GL.

no Soulherder ?

also Glasspool Mimic  Flip + Flickerwisp combo really well

Knight of Autumn also probably replace rec sage and finks in your sb

Elite Spellbinder and Professor of Symbology also look like they may have a home in this kind of deck once they are released.

Yorion, Sky Nomad as companion may also be worth while
