FalconForce on Staring Contest: A List of Blink-Effect Cards

1 month ago

Nightmare Shepherd is one of the best as it adds a lot of functionality with no upfront cost and allows you to exploit sacrifice mechanics like evoke. Creating token clones with etb/ltb can easily become overpowered, especially when combined with populate. In fact I built a great ETB Roon EDH deck around it using cards like Yosei, the Morning Star, Protean Hulk and Wayfaring Temples that clone themselves. Token clone generation is amazing because it's essentially ETB blinking as a side effect. You have some cards that do it already listed under abuse but I think the mechanic is good enough and has enough viable cards that it might be worth making a new category for it.

Token clone makers

Stolen Identity Blade of Selves Mirror Mockery Zndrsplt's Judgment Repudiate / Replicate Hour of Eternity Supplant Form Dance of Many Minion Reflector Bramble Sovereign Progenitor Mimic Anointed Procession Quasiduplicate Rhys the Redeemed Back from the Brink Dual Nature Mimic Vat Rite of Replication Song of the Worldsoul Helm of the Host Doubling Season Parallel Lives Battle for Bretagard Mechanized Production Orvar, the All-Form Prototype Portal Saheeli, the Gifted Saheeli's Artistry Seance Second Harvest Soul Foundry Spitting Image Splinter Twin Replication Technique Saheeli Rai Mirror March Mirrorworks Molten Echoes Mythos of Illuna Sublime Epiphany Flamerush Rider Felhide Spiritbinder Littjara Mirrorlake God-Pharaoh's Gift Hofri Ghostforge Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker Followed Footsteps Nightmare Shepherd Osgir, the Reconstructor Echo Storm Cackling Counterpart Esika's Chariot Feldon of the Third Path Flameshadow Conjuring Trickster's Talisman & of course anything with populate.

Also some other blink type cards:

Blink-Yorion, Sky Nomad Conditional bounce- Cunning Evasion ETB clone- Wall of Stolen Identity Graveyard blink- Cauldron of Souls, Twilight Shepherd, Adarkar Valkyrie ETB Abuse- Jalira, Master Polymorphist, Proteus Staff, Master Transmuter. Listing the ones that specifically clone or blink artifacts in their own group might be helpful too.

cfost827 I played Kokusho, the Evening Star for a while, and he was strong when he hit the board, just slow. I ended up taking him out cause I wanted a faster curve. Yosei, the Morning Star was always too stax-ey for my liking. He would slow down games a lot, and it didn't seem fun, but he's definitely powerful. For power level, I'd add Yosei, but for fun, I'd add Kokusho. However, I find that the deck runs much smoother when we don't have 6 mana creatures.

I like Carrion Feeder mostly because its a creature. It can be tutored for with Ranger of Eos and Recruiter of the Guard and can be recurred. Spawning Pit is a good sac oulet though. It's only 2 mana and can provide tokens as we sac things. Victimize is probably what I'd replace since its not a great sac outlet, and I recently put in more recursion in the form of Brought Back and Second Sunrise .

Awesome, thanks!

Lastly, have you ever tried running Kokusho, the Evening Star or Yosei, the Morning Star ? I feel like they are even better than Vilis, Broker of Blood in this deck (I know you just cut him already). With Teysa on the field and getting their death trigger, it makes these two quite powerful. Recurring them would also be great great. I'm thinking of testing adding in one of them. Which of the two would you add if you wanted to/could ?

Additionally, what are your thoughts on Spawning Pit as a sac outlet? I feel like it could actually do pretty well in this deck, maybe in place of Carrion Feeder ? Would like to hear your thoughts on this card as it could just make us more tokens.

Hey Masterful! Hope all is well and your play testing is continuing to be successful.

Just had a few thoughts on other cards to add/cut. Have you ever tried running Kokusho, the Evening Star or Yosei, the Morning Star ? I feel like they are even better than Vilis, Broker of Blood in this deck (I know you just cut him already). With Teysa on the field and getting their death trigger, it makes these two quite powerful. Recurring them would also be great great. I'm thinking of testing adding in one of them.

Nice list! Got some inspiration from it for my own Karador deck. I dont think you need Gift of Immortality , Kaya's Ghostform and Swiftfoot Boots . Sure, your commander are central for your strategy, but the cost reduction does include commander tax, so it will always cost you 3 mana if you fill you yard efficiently. See my list for inspiration, Hermit Druid is a goddamn beast in a Karador list! Reduce your basic land count and include that guy for some serious self mill. I use 6 basics because i don't want it to be auto win, but feel free to go down to 1-2 basics to really abuse the hermit :). Eldritch Evolution targeting Karador (you can always recast him for 3) plays any creature with cmc 10 or lower from your deck. Yosei, the Morning Star with a sac outlet lets you Stasis  your opponent while tapping down all their stuff. Nethroi, Apex of Death can mutate from your graveyard, so as long as you mill that guy you have a way to play any amount of creatures with total power 10 from your graveyard any time you have Karador out :). Stitcher's Supplier is a great self mill card especially with a sac outlet.

@ Omniscience_is_life I understand, as I also struggle with cutting! And in a lot of ways it also depends on what you find yourself playing against. As a notorious recovering durdle player, I've found it helpful to evaluate a card by means of if it's proactive in doing what your decks wants to do or winning. For example, in your current list, Sanctum Spirit I've found to be underwhelming as well as Darksteel Pendant . But it could work for you if you find yourself playing against a lot of aggressive decks or sweepers! Gift of Immortality Works towards the same goal of sweeper protection, and opens up additional toolbox plays with your other spirits, so that would be my suggestion!

Also, minor land suggestion! Drownyard Temple and High Market . Drownyard Temple is a minor consistent way of ramping after your pony smashes lands, and is another card that is ok chucking to the bin if someone wheels. High Market also opens up a cheeky Yosei, the Morning Star lock when paired with Emeria, The Sky Ruin to lock down a single opponent, which seems to be in the salty spirit of the deck!

This deck is hilarious, I love it.

Cards to consider:

Yosei, the Morning Star: Just incredible with your Emeria

Skyclave Apparition seems a pretty good addition.

Myojin of Cleansing Fire for a little more removal.

Mirror Entity as a finisher?

How about Eerie Interlude to protect any amount of your own creatures?

Nikko-Onna because why not?

Reveillark and Vesperlark seem like great additions. Same goes for Sun Titan.
