Prowler is a good choice.

Witches doesn’t need to hit the table turn 2, it can hit the table whenever you’d like. She exists to turn on your cantripping removal spells & kill the occasional Spellstutter Sprite or Gingerbrute. She might not be what you want to do with the deck in the end, but I imagine she has a home in a mono black devotion deck or something.

That's a good base. Take what works and replace what you don't like.

Exp. I've been playing iterations of this for years now and eight one drops are important. You need to start filling your gy ASAP. These are the two best. If you don't want to go into blue, there are cards like Gnawing Vermin but for me, m2 isn't enough. The -1/-1 is helpful so there is some leeway based on META. If I dabble in other colors, Shriekhorn is my go-to.

Satyr's spot can be removed but I play a low land count due to the two modal lands (Glasspool/Mammoth). Mire Triton is another favorite because Deathtouch and gainlfie. It's also a META call. I don't like others like Skull Prophet. If I were playing The Mycotyrant I'd consider it because it 'mills over time' (MOT) but once your opp sees what youre on theyd kill it before you get a chance to use it.

So, in this list I'm 12 goyfs. Eight can self-mill (SM) and the other is useful (Souls) in getting Wonder out of your hand. You can also sac Stitcher to it if you're a T1 Stitcher T2 Souls. Every card in this deck is a permanent besides Unearth so if you fetched at all, you could have a T2 6/6-8/8 Souls of the Lost and that aint to shabby.

I have always played at least 1-2 Nighthowler. It makes those Stitchers, Crabs, and Satyrs a threat and more often than not, takes two spells to kill it (when it's bestowed).

I view this deck as a sort of aggro deck and keeping with 99% creature theme, Grist and Brazen Borrower are my interaction. You can bring in whatever you want (obviously) but it's also provides fliers for Nighthowler, Grist has a built in win-con and protects itself. I always play a Boseiju, Who Endures and if I play more, -1 Unearth for Life from the Loam and if I'm really frisky, I'll add a few more legends, play more of the Channel Lands and another Life/Loam. I've got a oops all Channel lands were all the other lands are Modal and I play Amulet of Vigor with Shriekhorn and use Emry, Lurker of the Loch as a self-mill recur piece. It's fun.

Sidisi is a MOT that can help you go wide. Every time you mill, you get a zombie. I use this in near every build when I'm in color. I've tested Blossoming Tortoise but save that for a Mosswort Bridge version I play and if I can't get that going I want to be able to cast the top end. Shigeki, Jukai Visionary, Molderhulk, Aether Vial + Dryad Arbor help get me there. But just playing the new Squirming Emergence is so much easier than playing all those other cards.

You can find a way to bring in draw, life, other interaction, etc.. it's on you. There are times were I play Jace, the Perfected Mind or Visions of Beyond for draw. Spellstutter Sprite and a few spots for other faeries like Likeness Looter (flying faerie goyfs!).

But that's the base. Do what you want.. because you can literally do anything. I've got a junk list focused on recur with Unearth, Renegade Rallier, Necropanther, Athreos, God of Passage... a jund/grixis list that uses Ob Nixilis, the Adversary and Orcish Bowmasters (sac goyf to etb Ob Nix, Token Ob forces opp to draw 7 for -7 life. Bowmasters deals another 6 plus you get a 6/6 orc token (+2 more for paper Ob +1 if they can't discard). That's a 15 point swing, not including attacks. Another Grixis list that plays Kroxa, Flamewake Phoenix, Seasoned Pyromancer and Ox.

My favorite - game 1, I'm a mill deck that sideboard converts into self-mill game 2. It still deals with the gy but game 1 youre spell heavy and game 2 youre creature heavy.

Anyway, have fun.

I have a few suggestions:

  1. Perhaps Faerie Mastermind for more card draw/turn on Spellstutter Sprite?

  2. Faerie Fencing as a two replacement for Peppersmoke. By all means keep one Peppersmoke in the mainboard.

  3. I recommend 2xQuickling over Faerie Impostor, simply for the flash.

  4. You have lots of creatures, any thought of running Obyra, Dreaming Duelist or Tegwyll, Duke of Splendor in here?

  5. If you need some more support you could run Spell Stutter for some counter magic.

  6. Finally, since you are running Bitterblossom, have you considered running Rankle, Master of Pranks or Picklock Prankster?

Faerie Duelist wouldn't be a bad sideboard option against aggressive decks either.

Both Peppersmoke and Noggin Whack feel really weak - i think you’d be better off using cards like Spell Pierce, Counterspell, Drown in the Loch, or maybe even Subtlety.

I also think Faerie Impostor, Nightshade Stinger, and Oona's Prowler all feel super suboptimal, and it would be better to ditch these to run playsets of your better fairies (paricularly Spellstutter Sprite, as this is the strongest faerie by a long way and pretty-much the only valid reason to run the tribe), as well as some of the above-mentioned cards.

Ok, I would start by cutting the cards of which the abilities are too specific to ever really work in a game. Here are first ones I would choose and why:

  • Blood Hypnotist: your list only contains three other cards that generate blood-tokens. The likelihood of her ability ever being used is therefore rather slim.
  • Cascade Seer: bit of an expensive-to-cast scry opportunity when at most you can get Scry 2 (your party thus far cannot include anything else than 1 of 10 wizards and 1 of 5 clerics).
  • Dragonsguard Elite: with so few non-permanents in the deck (thus far), this one may not be worth it.
  • Gluttonous Guest: would not include this for similar reason as Blood Hypnotist.
  • Goldberry, River-Daughter: though I love the beauty of this card, her abilities aren't of much use to you because your deck barely creates counters.
  • Guardians of Oboro: would not use this for similar reason as for Goldberry (you have a few auras, but so few that this ability will probably never trigger).
  • Kasla, the Broken Halo: good combatant but since there's nothing else with convoke in here, her ability is pretty useless.
  • Kiora, Sovereign of the Deep: there are no krakens, serpents, etc. in this deck, so aside from being a decent combatant, she's not doing much.
  • Mesa Enchantress: almost no enchantments?
  • Rime Tender: no snow permanents?
  • Setessan Petitioner: with so few green permanents in the deck, not sure if this is worth it.
  • Spellstutter Sprite: having doubts about this one. Not many faeries in this deck, but then again it's quite common these days to cast spells with CMC0, so ...
  • Sublime Archangel: lovely card but in a deck with this many creatures, I would assume you're going wide, right? That would mean 'Exalted' mechanic is not all that great. Or am I missing something?

Angels, Elves, Faeries and Vampires seem to be the main creature-types you're using. Maybe just focus on these types and make it easier to create some synergies? Or is this too functional?

Wyrbak on Spellstutter Sprite vs Ragemonger

1 year ago

I cast my Kragma Warcaller with a Ragemonger and a Hazoret's Monument on the battlefield bringing the casting cost to {2}. My opponent plays a Spellstutter Sprite with a Cloud of Faeries on the battlefield. Is the Kragma Warcaller countered?

lhetrick13 I don't disagree that I may need to include maybe two of of something like an Ornithopter in order to better ensure I can get card draw running quickly. Enchantments or other spells to make creature unblockable usually only give your opponent an easy two for one, they also hurt your overall ability to control the board. As for the faeries, they aren't included so much to fit a theme as much as because they're some of the best cards in the deck. Faerie Seer is a card selection engine that can be replayed several times thanks to ninjutsu. Spellstutter Sprite is usually excellent at countering anything 2 or less CMC. This allows you to save your other counter spells for the later game while also putting another evasive creature on the board that can activate ninjutsu. Inquisition of Kozilek is a very recent addition and I am also not sure about it. Disrupting our opponent early on or taking away some of their removal can help us get established and begin to control the board, but late game it is usually a dead card. I included it actually to help solve the problem of getting the deck up and running as our opponents removing one of our evasive creatures on the first or second turn sets the deck back big time. I may take it out after a little more play testing.
