Aethersnatch Discussion

TuckerMTG on Lightning Is Prohibited (Izzet)

3 weeks ago

Gigantoplasm, Control Magic, Aethersnatch, and Stroke of Genius are not legal in modern. I would replace them with more copies of Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker and Elixir of Immortality.

epajula on 'Ownership' is such a grey area

I would recommend Alchemist's Refuge, Aethersnatch, Gather Specimens, Insidious Will, Kefnet's Last Word, Confiscation Coup, and Dack Fayden. I played a deck similarly with Mizzix (It is now time to put on your 3-D glasses). You may also want to consider Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar to say opponents creatures after you steal them, or sac your own so they can't be manipulated.

Phantomvert on Ayli, Weaponized Lifegain

I appreciate the input, but I already have Beacon of Immortality. As far as Tainted Remedy, I have avoided it and other similar effects because the risk is too high if someone steals it (like with Aethersnatch or Blatant Thievery). Example: Erebos, God of the Dead is a great draw engine and efficiently costed and might be good in the deck (especially at making sure I'm the highest life total at the table), but if someone hits me with Bribery or some other form of control it turns off my whole deck. By contrast, the ability on Vizkopa Guildmage can be combined with Beacon of Immortality to do exactly what your describing at the same CMC, but I target myself and kill all opponents instead of target opponent. If Vizkopa Guildmage is stolen, the opponent would have a harder time making that a problem for me, plus I can sac it to Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim's first ability to prevent that.

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