Fish Five-0: Jeskai Blink (Standard, Magic Arena)

Its time to steal our opponent's stuff with this sweet Jeskai Blink deck

Loading Indicator


As I mentioned above, we're all about taking our opponent's things so we're looking to play cards like The Akroan War and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling

$ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00

The way Thassa, Deep-Dwelling reads, it allows us to keep the things we steal permanently which will be huge and we have ways to reoccur The Akroan War with Teferi, Time Raveler as we can just bounce the saga back to our hand after stealing our opponent's threat!

We've seen this gameplan with green normally, but this time we're dropping the green and the ramp to get Teferi, Time Raveler to help us shut down the Azorius Control decks for a bit while we set up our board state.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00

With the addition of white, we do also get to add cards like Elite Guardmage to draw us cards and gain us some life which can give us the cushion of life that we need to survive against Mono red. We also have some wonderful finishers in Dream Trawler and my favorite saga from #MTGTHB...

$ 0.00 $ 0.00

This is easily one of my favorite sagas as its versatility is so helpful in taking out key threats while also letting us grind out the game as we can get back our fallen allies. This is huge as we can bring back fallen Agent of Treachery!



We went 5-1 and stole a ton of games! I was actually a huge fan of the white as the Teferi, Time Raveler was huge and really helped us against our controlling opponents and allowed us to return sagas for more uses. The only thing I wish we went a little heavier on would be creatures with "Enter the battlefield" effects. I think I would like to add a few more copies of Cavalier of Gales and maybe some other early game cards like Charming Prince and Alirious, Enraptured. The list would look something like this...
