I really fell in love with Nightveil Predator in draft last night so I've done a constructed deck with some input from GoA.
Getting ready to take it out on it's maiden voyage.
Regardless, it's going to be fun!

4 x Nightveil Predator
5 x Island
7 x Swamp
2 x Healer's Hawk
5 x Plains
2 x Hunted Witness
4 x Knight's Pledge
2 x Tocatli Honor Guard
2 x Squire's Devotion
2 x Search for Azcanta
3 x Sinister Sabotage
3 x Cast Down
3 x Ravenous Chupacabra
3 x Vraska's Contempt
2 x Infernal Scarring
2 x Glacial Fortress
2 x Isolated Chapel
3 x Watery Grave
2 x Candlelight Vigil
2 x Danitha Capashen, Paragon

3 x On Serra's Wings


Importable

I would probably replace Knight's Pledge and Infernal Scarring for something more useful, like more control spells. A Predator + Wings is sweet, so you want to control the rest of the game to pull it off, right? Ritual of Soot comes to mind, also 4x Adanto Vanguard (for the 1-drops) because it survives wipes and is a nice target for the good aura's in the deck.

I want to do Wings, that's why it's in the sideboard, but it makes Nightveil legendary. That's literally my only issue with that. I hear what you are saying about more control but my main goal is to get Nightveil as big as I can and out of reach.
Who know though? Most all my decks start out with the freedom of change. It takes me a while before I consider them set in stone.

I did update it a bit. Wings were always too good not to be in there as I could use them on other things if I'm so worried about Nightveil becoming legendary.
I had a legendary token.

Blink's will come in handy in reassigning enchantments if need be or tempoing down the opponents deck. Card draw later is a great advantage. Search is an mvp.

Think about what Cucho said on the Discord and now GoA bringing it up.
Hmmmm. I don't know if I want to mod this deck or build another Nightveil deck in a Grixis shell.
I have never played a Bolas and have at least two of them. I really want to. Probably just build a new deck. I'm getting comfortable enough with this one to take it into ranked today I think.
Thing is, I don't recall a lot of choice red auras and enchantments. Come to think about it, when I looked I don't think I had Unowned ticked. I bet there are a few decent ones in uncommon... I hope. Don't want to blow rares or mythics on this.

I like the idea of it, giving Nightveil enchantments, but I don't really like running esper as a creature deck. If there's some way to do this in green (Sultai), then I'll try it when I get online later. I aslo want green to go along with Wilderness Reclamation, since it'll make it so I don't let down my defenses on the turn my opponent takes after I slam down a Nightveil.
