in my opinion the mana curve is a bit to high, despite cloud of faeries. i would put in some zephyr sprites since they're low cost and evasive

Thanks for the rate. I agree that the mana curve is a bit high. Some options for the deck staying mono blue could be

Briarberry Cohort Buy
Ringskipper Buy
Sprite Noble Buy
Surveilling Sprite Buy
Zephyr Sprite Buy
Propaganda Buy

Looks pretty solid; the only things I would suggest would be considering Zephyr Sprite Buy just since it's a nice one drop, especially for faeries, and also that Whispersilk Cloak Buy might be a better option than Protective Bubble Buy. Your faerie's unblockability and shroud would be less easily removed if it was provided by an artifact (which you can play earlier) than by an enchantment

f***king faeries lmao looks good but i would put some more faeries from the lorwyn-shadowmoor block, only because you could probably get a little more out of it. and as for my zombies the reason i use more two-ofs and one-ofs in my decks are because it gives me a 50-50 chance in drawing them when i need them. i used to put alot of three-ofs and four-ofs but i just found myself drawing into doubles i didn't need at the wrong times, most of the time costing me the game, and besides its a zombie deck, you don't really need more then two-ofs because they just end up coming back anyway, thus making more room for other deadly zombies.

In MTG Legacy, two changes can make a deck "original" compared to the most popular build.

4 Scion of Oona. I wouldn't run any less.

Vendilion Clique Buy. You should always have at least 2 of them. It is the best faerie/faerie clique in the game hands-down. It's never dead in either Vintage or Legacy.

Brainstorm Buy to protect your stuff from discard. You should add fetchlands to shuffle the cards away. It's the best way to up consistency and card quality in Legacy IMO.

Run Stifle Buy. They're never dead. There is always a Piledriver/Aether Vial/Fetchland/Qasali/Storm combo that needs to be put in its place.

Spell Siphon is so terrible. Daze Buy is 10X better. I would take out Sleep as well to get 4 into the deck.

There's no need to tell you that Force of Will should be in this deck. So if you got em, use em.

You're packing too many 4 casting cost spells. You shouldn't be running more than 6 of them.

Thornwind is next to useless. The lower costing faeries you got, the better.

Beware of Firespout Buy, Engineered Explosives Buy.

Run 4 Aether Vial Buy. These are so good. I can't name a single tribal deck that doesn't benefit from them. Elves, Goblins, Merfolk, Faeries - everything.

I would run a single Umezawa's Jitte Buy. Its vital against Goblins/Merfolk/Elves.

You might want to consider a black splash for removal. It also allows you to run Perish Buy sideboard for them Goyfs.

If you found these comments helpful, please comment on my New Horizons deck. I'm looking for some input/second opinion on how Faeries might do against it from someone who plays faeries.

looks ok, but faeries aren't really built for full on aggro, their very much for some semi-aggro control tempo deck.

bitterblossom should be there, counterbalance + sensei's divining top can help, as does umezawa's jitte and sword of fire and ice.

however, this deck is by no means tournament quality, specially not in legacy

I like the deck, tribal decks are alot of fun. I would reccommend switching out daze for mana leak, alot better than just having them pay one mana, besides it costs the same to cast. Other than that i like it. Also some of the other peoples advice is good to.

Lol I already left a comment on your deck a while ago.

I still recommend Spell Snare over Familiar Ruse. The drawback on Familiar Ruse is bad. I can understand that returning a Spellstutter would be excellent, but the meeting the condition will overall be worse.

If you run Aether Vial you have to run 4. Late Aether Vials are just awful draws and the faster you get one early game, the better. Aether Vials is one of those few cards that must be run as 4 or none at all. It's as important to have 4 of them as they are as important to the deck as having 4 Spellstutter Sprite. It can be argued that it may be even MORE important than that. There is nothing in this deck that is more important than this card. Bottom-line is that you can't expect the deck to be top-tier competitive without this card.

The problem with this deck against tier 1 legacy decks is that your spells are too expensive. Typically, in order to actually be playable in legacy, the spell has to cost 3 or less OR have some sort of alternate casting cost (i.e. Force of Will Buy). Some decks do play things that cost 4 or 5, but they have to win you the game when you play them (i.e. Natural Order Buy or Ad Nauseam Buy). So in terms of being a "tournament quality" deck, this is lacking.

In terms of just playing this as a deck, more Aether Vial Buys are always good.
Some Riptide Laboratory Buy shenanigans would also probably go well in this deck.

Good countering Deck, but I don't see much in the offense. This deck has a great amount of counters, but in general that's a defensive tactic. Your 4 Harbingers bring you a great fetching power which can be recycled by championing. I don't know much in the way of faeries, so I can't really make any astute recommendations. I think that this is past the cusp of being Tournament Quality, but if facing a deck specifically made to answer it, would lose.

This deck is far from Tournament Quality, your spells is way too expensive. if you don't draw one of the vials almost immediately or if your opponents have an answer to vials then the game stops right there.

If you compare faeries to merfolks in legacy you will realise that you are not half the stompy power that merfolks is.. so in order to use faeries in legacy you will need to look at some of the special abilities of faeries and see if its possible to use that to your advantage but you need to compare it to similar existing legacy decks.

On the positive side of this deck, the price is very nice and the concept is pretty decent as well .

keep in mind that it is supposed to be a Control, Stompy, Theme-Based, Creature-Based, Tournament Quality, Tribal Deck. -> This is why I'm rating as i am.

A quick glance and the deck seems pretty playable but I wouldn't consider this as a more casual deck.

Black is important for the Thoughtseize and Bitterblossom. Then there is always the Tombstalkers that are pretty prevalent in Faerie decks as an alternative win condition. Of course some removal such as Deathmark or Perish sideboard makes it tier 1 quality.

No FoW is a big problem and is a deal-breaker. Still this deck can be really good without it with good tempo.

What is NOT ok is having 2 Aether Vials. This is your deck's biggest weakness by far. 4 Aether Vials has always been staple in a Faerie deck and though I know they are expensive, if you plan to spend even another cent on the deck, it should go to the Vials. It looks like 3+ people have already mentioned this before. You haven't addressed this. Why?
