Modern UW FaerieBlade by Curryvore
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a Spellstutter Sprite in a deck list, so when I saw a 5-0 list that played four, I was immediately in. UW FaerieBlade is a sweet UW aggro-control build, and combines flying pressure with counterspells to good results.
Fetch a powerful Equipment with Stoneforge Mystic while countering anything the opponent plays. Kill them with flyers and Germ tokens while they struggle to resolve spells.
Spellstutter is almost always just for one, but Modern is a format full of one-drops, so that works out just fine. Sometimes you do get to two or three thanks to other Faeries, and that’s a nice bonus when it happens. The 3/1 flyers offer good disruption and a real clock, and all these combined do great work.
All these counters are great, and Force of Negation is particularly good in a deck that is tapping out for proactive threats. Stoneforge Mystic into Force of Negation is awesome, and one of the advantages you get for being aggressive.
- In the dark, Kaldra Compleat is the best Equipment to get, though Sword of Feast and Famine can be good if you have flying threats and Batterskull is best when you need to preserve your life total.
- The Raugrin Triome helps cast Prismatic Ending for three, which comes up more than you might think.
- Spellstutter Sprite is fantastic against the cascade decks, as their payoff spells all cost zero.
This deck is a nice addition to the Modern metagame, and not a bad place to be if you like playing aggro-control. Good luck!
