Aethersnatch Discussion

Pieguy396 on List of EDH counterspells

Aethersnatch isn't technically a counterspell, but it does go in the "steal" category.

Changeling spells like Nameless Inversion and Crib Swap are cool with your commander, and really good with Haakon, Stromgald Scourge.

Mirari's Wake and Mana Reflection are great with your commander, anything that doubles your mana is pretty good.

Might want to add some fetch lands, Windswept Heath is expensive but good, Flood Plain and that cycle is cheaper and great with amulet of vigor.

Patriarch's Bidding is really good for tribal decks.

Ashes of the Fallen is clever with your commander

Aethersnatch,Fertilid, Nevermaker, Reveillark, Whisperwood Elemental are all good elementals.

Karmic Guide isn't an elemental but still super good, and combos with reveillark and a sac outlet

When a permanent spell resolves it is put onto the battlefield under it's controller's control. Because your opponent cast the spell they will control the spell (and subsequent creature) until another effect dictates otherwise (such as Aethersnatch while on the stack or Dominate while on the battlefield).

yeah thats what i was thinking and i didnt really read the text of Desertion ops... but good thing i bought a shit ton of cards like Aethersnatch it'll be fabulous! LOL How does Vigor work? does it really do a whole lot? Like does it prevent the table from attacking you?

sadly, Desertion only works for artifacts and creatures....Aethersnatch hits planeswalkers though :)

Akroma's Memorial really brings the game to a close and hits the board with a thud, really helps you stabilize your board state against a lot of decks, regardless of color.

Hi hoardofnotions, thank you for the comment and the vote!

Peek is definitely worth it, I unfortunately don't have a copy of one yet though. Not sure if I would replace Slip Through Space with it though as I like being able to make Talrand equipped with Runechanter's Pike unblockable, however if I cannot think of anything else to replace it will be for that!

Retraced Image is awesome, I've not seen it before. I will definitely be picking one up!

I like Thought Scour over Mental Note, I may test it out but not sure what I would take out for it.

Pongify is brilliant, again I have the same problem as I do with Peek in that I don't have one.

Into the Roil is pretty cool, I will have to test it out.

Lightning Greaves would be a nice addition, unfortunately I only have one copy but am looking to get another for this deck.

I actually prefer Telling Time over Anticipate, I like being able to order my next draw etc. instead of losing 2 cards to the bottom of the library.

I like 2 mana counterspells, however I don't like the benefit they give my opponent so much xD I may look at some though and take them into consideration.

I have had good experiences with Aethersnatch, it is costly though. But later in the game it can be really satisfying to take an opponents game winning creature or their commander.

I will definitely take a look at your deck! Thank you again for all your suggestions, and thank you especially for actually reading the description and not suggesting any creatures!

Looks like a great deck!

could Peek be worth it? maybe over slip through space?

Retraced Image is a cute ramp spell. you reveal an island and put it into play

Thought Scour and Mental Note are more one mana cantrips

Pongify is another kill spell, maybe over vapor snag?

Into the Roil over disperse?

Lightning Greaves over swiftfoot boots?

do you like Anticipate over telling time?

would you want 2 mana counterspells over some of your 4 drop ones? like Arcane Denial over discombobulate for example?

I've been debating putting Aethersnatch in my Jori En deck, have you had good expirences with it?

If you have the time I've been working on my Jori En, Diving on a Budget and i think it plays similar to your deck, maybe you could take a look?
