Thanks for the kind words JonnyWS2019

Good observation. This deck makes you a target and aggro is on a faster clock. Winds of Rebuke on Scepter helps. Hope that I can double mill them faster than they can swing in. Are you thinking more along the lines of Propaganda/Dissipation Field?

Retraced Image acts as ramp with 20% Snow-Covered Island and 10% Persistent Petitioners. Trusted Advisor and Bruvac the Grandiloquent round out a dozen Advisors to meet the mill requirement. I had 3 playsets but cut 2 for the planeswalkers.

Have you considered using bounce or blink effects such as Trusted Advisor and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling to reuse the Aether Theorist/Thief? Shimmerwing Chimera/Riptide Chimera might be able to accomplish a similar set up with Aether Meltdown. Hope this helps.

Cool idea! +1

Minister of Impediments could be fun in this deck.

Trusted Advisor could also be fun.

Since most of your creatures are small, you could also wreak some havoc with Meekstone . That card will definitely draw some hate tho, so be careful.

Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker could deter some attackers.

Also, I'd recommend a few more ramp spells, perhaps Wayfarer's Bauble and Coldsteel Heart ?

You deck has made quite a few changes since the last time I saw it. I must say I like how the deck is coming together.

I would like to know what your thoughts are on replacing one of the signets with a Basalt Monolith . My reasoning is that it by itself allows infinite (albeit colorless) mana with your Dramatic Reversal / Isochron Scepter combo as well as going infinite with the Rings of Brighthearth you already have included.

I would also love to hear your reasoning for including Trusted Advisor . With Damia as your commander, I wonder how often its first ability would be relevant. The second ability seems to me more pertinent, as by recasting one of your cheap advisors you could gain card advantage through cards like Beast Whisperer and Kindred Discovery . Do you think that effect is worth a slot in the deck? If you do, I wonder if Temur Sabertooth could perform that function better. I often include this card in creature-heavy decks as it allows me to return my board in whole or in part to my hand in response to a board wipe being cast. The obvious downsides are that it is not an advisor itself and its ability costs mana to activate as opposed to being a free trigger. Paradoxical Outcome could serve a similar purpose as well as providing additional draw

Since you can tap any Advisor, have you looked at Elder of Laurels, Lady Sun, Mayor of Avabruck  Flip, Trusted Advisor, Zhuge Jin, Wu Strategist, Lu Su, Wu Advisor or any other Advisors?

Elder of Laurels and Zhuge Jin, Wu Strategist together could be an alt wincon maybe?

To keep your theme I've suggested some improvements


Faerie Harbinger - Tutor for the fary you need

Inspired Sprite - Extra Card draw

Mistbind Clique - Basically a one turn time warp - more if you can bounce with effects like Glen Elendra Pranksters

Nightshade Schemers - Since most of your deck is Faerie

Scion of Oona - Faerie lord - the shroud could be beneficial too

Spellstutter Sprite - Counter spell - more if you can bounce with effects like Glen Elendra Pranksters

Sprite Noble - Weaker "Faerie" Lord - most likely to cut


Siren of the Silent Song or Raven's Crime - discard

Hypnotic Siren - on theme version of Spirit away but not dead in hand early game

Siren Stormtamer - counter spell


Midnight Banshee - might hurt with all the blue you play but strong against many decks


Thing in the Ice  Flip

Scourge of Fleets - Cyclonic Rift type effect for all opponents - good with repeatable bounce maybe something like Mark of Eviction, Sunken Hope, Trusted Advisor, Faerie Impostor, or Quickling

I would Remove Macabre Waltz, Fill with Fright, Send to Sleep, Wings of Velis Vel, Fear, Phyresis with Glistening Oil (repeatable infect + used as removal in pinch), Psychic Surgery, Sleep Paralysis, Waterknot (your in black use actual removal), Faerie Invaders, Oona's Gatewarden (sorry I know oona's the general but its a weak card) and Dauthi Embrace (I know you said its a win con but most of your creatures are evasive on their own)

kamelyan on Tetsuko Umezawa EDH

You should include Umezawa's Jitte; it's a way for blue to pump after blockers are declared, and it's on flavor.

Mindshrieker is creature that can also pump after blockers; and with cards like Field of Dreams (which I'm probably not going to run because, Oh my Thassa, that card is expensive) or Lantern of Insight, you can guarantee the best option (and it's not limited to one activation per turn snicker).

And I'm hoping to run Sakashima's Student to become the greatest creature on the board, and continuously do it with Trusted Advisor, Shrieking Drake, and Faerie Impostor.

Go, Blue Aggro!
