[EDH] Isperia's Blink-Bounce Bonanza
This is a deck that uses blink and bounce engines to reuse creature ETB abilities to generate card advantage, while also protecting the creatures it plays out.
I chose Isperia the Inscrutable for the general because I love toolboxes and there are a good number of flying creatures that synergize well with the strategy of the deck, and she provides a source of card advantage that can helps set up mini-combos and synergies (and one actual combo). I realize Grand Arbiter Augustin IV is probably better in this deck due to the very large number of gating creatures and bounce engines and such, but he doesn't seem as fun to me nor for my opponents. Plus, Isperia gets value, and value is sweet.
The deck is budget (for the most part) and was constructed for a casual metagame (for the most part). I'm missing a good number of the cards here, so if I can't get a hold of them/they're too expensive, I'll have to go for some other options.
I'll likely be updating the deck as I get all the pieces together, but regrdless, the deck:
Decklist Organized By Function:
Fiend Hunter/Leonin Relic-Warder + almost any instant speed bounce-blink engine = exile target thing permanently
Evoked Mulldrifter/Wispmare + almost any instant speed bounce-blink engine = cheap reusable card draw/enchantment removal
Azorius Aethermage + a gating creature/a bounce engine/Azorius Chancery = repeatable draw
Stormfront Riders + Shrieking Drake = Repeatable mono-blue token fireball
Isperia the Inscrutable > Drift of Phantasms > Trinket Mage > Expedition Map > Mistveil Plains = A tutor chain that lets you loop any card from the graveyard back into your deck to tutor for that only needs the general to start
Trinket Mage > Dispeller's Capsule/Brittle Effigy/Relic of Progenitus/Tormod's Crypt/Ancient Den/Sol Ring/Wayfarer's Bauble/Expedition Map = A blink/bounceable tutor that can get me creature removal, noncreature removal, grave hate, mana, and lands
Stormfront Riders + Sakashima the Imposter (or any other clone effect) copying the Riders + Cloudstone Curio = Infinite 1/1s and infinite "you may return a creature you control to your hand" triggers
CARDS I'M THINKING ABOUT/REMOVED::
Suggestions for cards that help make the deck better and cards in the deck that can get cut are appreciated!
