This is my take on Invisiblade.

4x Invisible Stalker
4x Vault Skirge
4x Phyrexian Metamorph
1x Wurmcoil Engine

4x Mana Leak
4x Ponder
4x Despise
2x Batterskull
2x Sword of Feast and Famine
2x Sword of War and Peace
2x Curiosity
3x Dismember

4x Darkslick Shore
4x Drowned Catacomb
7x Island
6x Swamp
3x Inkmoth Nexus

I'm having trouble with the sideboard. Any suggestions would be great.
I think it needs more counterspells. What do you all think?
3x Nihil Spellbomb
2x Surgical Extraction
1-2x Consecrated Sphinx
2x Silver Inlaid Dagger
3x Snapcaster Mage
3x Gideon Jura


Little pricy and unordinary, but they could be interchanged with cards in the deckĀ 
Its blue black so no gideon. I like surgical extraction. Not a fan of the other cards though. Thank you for the suggestions though. What do you think the sideboard should look like?
This might sound super janky, but I think that in addition to the stalker maybe a couple Aven Fleetwing. Only saying so because your stalker is the only thing you can equip w/any kind of protection (other than the big dudes of the deck)and the fleetwing is the only other creature in your colors I could see using similarly.
I am Blue/Black
Not sure that I'm seeing the reasoning to go U/B over U/W here. You're basically trading Geist, Crusader, O-Ring, and possibly Angelic Destiny and Gideon for Despise. Doesn't seem like a good trade to me.

I guess I could splash white and go esper blade? I'm known for playing black so I would like to play black.
I'm thinkin I'm agreein with FR2 here. U/W/b seems like a better choice than U/B.

I would probably just go straight up U/W for consistency, while still running Dismember and Skirge. That would give you a presence of black in your deck, just Phyrexian mana black. Make sure to run a few O-Rings or Liliana will blow this strategy out of the water.

Despise is for planeswalkers as well. Followed be surgical extraction is great for getting rid of her good. She's not the problem here.
My advice would be to ditch the inkmoth nexus, add 4x Glacial Fortress(Since your playing U/W), add something like cackling counterpart since you really want to keep the stalker consistent and maybe sideboard/maindeck dispel or mental misstep
Ok, that sounds interesting. Is Solemn Simulacrum a good add then? It maybe be too slow.
I think dispel is the better one to play.
phantasmal image would be much better than cackling counterpart because invisible stalker cant be the target of spells or abilites anyways XD
U/W is infinitely better and more consistent than uwb, which is what you want in an agro deck. You need to be able to win without swords, so you need the best midrange creatures available. Crusader, geist, and image, paired up with late game sun titan will absolutely crush later games if you happen to lose your blades.

And why are you scared of walkers? Youre in blue. Just counter them.

Spells or abilities your opponents control.

You can target Invisible Stalker all you want. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to equip it.
Yup Invisible Stalker with swords and curiosity is really good.
Dispel has rotated sadly. Im using negate.

Well duh but he'd never target his own stalker if it was made via Phantasmal Image, which is the point he was making I'm fairly sure.

But targeting isn't an issue. I fail to see the relevance.
Point is, Phantasmal Image makes a nice copy simply because it remains Stalker's hexproof which protects it. Downside is that you can't target it without sacing it.
That's very true

Just as a reminder:

Equip 3(3: Attach to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery.)

Equip is targetted.

I strongly advise against Phantasmal Image in a blade deck for that reason.

I'm thinking that too.
I have a new deck idea with white/blue instead.

4x Invisible Stalker
3x Blade Splicer
2x Sun Titan
2x Consecrated Sphinx
(Phantasmal Image may go in as well as Phyrexian Metamorph)
2x Sword of War and Peace
2x Sword of Feast and Famine
2x Day of Judgment
3x Oblivion Ring
4x Mana Leak
4x Ponder
2x Gideon Jura
2x Negate
(might add Curiosity)
THE NUMBERS MAY BE OFF, JUST A WARNING!!!
Sideboard is still under construction. It definitely will have 4x Celestial Purge in it.
The land ratio is still up in the air too. Not quite sure about it yet.
