This is a thread I wrote on mtgsalvation that’s about brainstorming for Eldrazi Displacer in Modern.
This is a brainstorming thread for a deck using Eldrazi Displacer to get lots of value from blinking creatures for their ETB effects.
Training Grounds: This card is that makes Eldrazi Displacer fast enough to be modern playable. Run 4
Restoration Angel: Having Resto Angel helps generate even more value by being able to blink additional creatures when we’re out of colorless mana. Run 3-4
Chord of Calling: Chord of Calling lets us tutor for any of the many one-ofs with ETB effects in the deck. Run 4
Birds of Paradise: Another good mana dork to accelerate our mana. Run 4
At this point, we have 24 of the nonland cards for the deck. We are definitely in Green, Blue and White for our core pieces, but there are many different one-ofs that we should consider to fill out the rest of the deck.
Emrakul’s Hatcher: Infinite Combo with Displacer and [card]Impact Tremors[/cards].
Stonehorn Dignitary: Can lock out aggro decks.
Lone Missionary: Can help outdistance burn.
Reveillark: Can bring back some creatures that have already died.
Wall of Omens: Can help grind out card advantage.
Venser, Shaper Savant: This card can bounce entire fields very quickly.
Perstermite: Can tap down entire teams, and untap cards that you attacked with to use for defense.
Eternal Witness: Can help bring back anything that has been destroyed.
Thragtusk: Can help us outdistance burn.
Elvish Visionary: Can help get some card advantage.
Shriekmaw: Removal that is a dead card vs Affinity or other heavy black decks.
Kitchen Finks: Our best way to outdistance burn.
Siege Rhino: Both a win-con and a way to outdistance burn.
Sin Collector: A great card against control.
Tidehollow Skulker: Good hand disruption.
