The_Acid_Drip blink has pretty decent interactivity with removal; on MTGO I am running Spellskite in the SB but that's it besides Hermit. I've made some use of it but I don't feel like it's offensive enough for what I'm doing. Counterspells can be useful but I feel like the synergy is lacking.

Instead of Graves, I'd add a few Spellskite. It's not a wall but you also need to think of big butts with abilites due to high crea/low spell count for some defense against what the opp will do because all they need to do is hold their spells for Arcades, Assault Formation, High Alert, Huatli and you can't do anything.

Maybe add Spellskite to the sideboard?

Edit: doesn't have defender, sigh

+1 either way

Looks funny asf

If you aren't willing to use more nonbasic lands, I'd completely cut black. None of the black cards seem that important here. Dreadbore can be replaced with bolts. Else, if you want to keep running Bastion, I'd run some duals.

Not sure what Lotus Cobra is doing here. You don't even have fetchlands to capitalize on the landfall. Leyline Prowler could be replaced with more efficient dorks (or maybe the Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl ramp package).

If you're running Imperial Recruiter you can run some toolbox 1-ofs like Magus of the Moon and Spellskite.

Fun list! I'm not sure Umbris's effect is strong enough to lean so heavily into horror tribal to get Umbris into a one-shot threat quickly, but the required speed of the deck will be dependent on the local meta of each player. I'm personally leaning more into efficient mill options to get him powered up quickly to maximize his voltron potential. Horrors are so darn cool though! I want to play Spellskite, but having an actual counterspell in hand feels like it will be the better option most of the time in practice. Clone effects are crazy strong with his ETB, but I'm not sure if Helm of the Host will make the cut in my list. It is a ton of mana investment for the effect and doesn't provide additional protection for him. Let me know how the deck works in playtesting!

Have you considered adding a bit more draw in the form of Whispering Madness and Windfall? Wheel effects are fantastic at ruining opponent plans, and when combined with Planar Void or Leyline of the Void (or Dauthi Voidwalker), Umbris will get pumped significantly. Uba Mask is also great at forcing opponents to play cards at inopportune times or else pump Umbris more. Pyxis of Pandemonium seems tailor made for the deck- have you considered including it?

Omniscience_is_life That is actually some great advice! And these spells are defo better options than Blacksmith's Skill.

I'll probably look to add in 3ish Swan Song into the sideboard, as that seems like the most powerful of these effects, and the downside should be a non-issue for this deck. I think I'll still look to have a single copy of Spellskite mainboard (in place of the Relic of Progenitus) to Whir for in a pinch where I need to protect something.

Cheers!

I have this wee pet deck here, which, prior to the existence/popularity of Prismatic Ending did pretty awesomely - but is now finding itself in a troublesome situation.

What’s the best way for me to defend my board against that card? So far the best I can think of is Spellskite mainboard, and some Blacksmith's Skill in the sideboard - but i’m hoping there’s better options out there that i’ve missed.

Any suggestions or ideas are much appreciated. I get that this archtype is probably dead-in-the-water while Prismatic Ending remains as popular as it is, but it doesn’t mean we can’t try!

I once had a Spellskite on field and completely forgot it was there, let my commander eat a removal spell (Swords to Plowshares) and didn’t try to redirect it the Spellskite since I had forgotten it lol
