Blue Elemental Blast Discussion

With such a low mana curve, I am not sure you need as many mana rocks as you have. I would consider the following artifact: Aetherflux Reservoir, Primal Amulet, Runechanter's Pike, and Sphinx-Bone Wand.

Not sure why you have Blue Elemental Blast in this deck as just about any counter spell is better. I would try to include as many cantrips that draw a card as you can as it will cycle through your deck faster while getting you value. Such as cards like Anticipate, Defiant Strike, Opt, Peek, Shadow Rift, Crash Through, Ponder, and Renegade Tactics.

I like Narset, if you want another version of her rebound effect, check out Taigam, Ojutai Master. Also if you end up with a critical amount of combat tricks, Zada, Hedron Grinder can be a real power punch.

I made a version of this deck that is much more Token/Storm-centric. Take a look at it for some ideas, Shu Yun Tempest of Tokens. The strategies are different, but there are some cards that are common for most Shu Yun decks.

Grubbernaut, good catch on Blue Elemental Blast. I was basing its inclusion off of tappedout saying it was pauper legal. Bummer that Hydroblast costs a pretty penny, but if I ever buy this list in paper, I'll swap it back out. Still cheaper than trying to build UB Control in standard, so I won't complain.

I always seem to forget about Ghastly Demise for some reason, but I love it and I already have 2 in my mtgo collection, so I'll definitely swap out Victim of Night for 2x Ghastly Demise.

Thanks for the feedback!

Looks like a fun list! Only thing I'd swap, since you mentioned you're mostly interested in MTGO legality, is to sub Blue Elemental Blast for Hydroblast, since the former is not pauper legal.

Also, since Victim of Night is double black and doesn't hit Gurmag Angler, anyway, I've often found Doom Blade and Ghastly Demise to be just as good or better, because they only require one colored mana.

Cheers!

This is a great deck. Feel like I can make some nasty deaths with this.

Maybe a Mutagenic Growth or some other kind of buff

for sideboard I might do something along the lines of

3 Spreading Seas

2 Dispel

4 Blue Elemental Blast

2 Curse of Chains

2 Annul

Blue Elemental Blast is not pauper legal, but can easily be upgraded to Hydroblast. Otherwise, looks like a lot of fun!

Doom Blade, Deep Analysis and Death Rattle are all Pauper legal. Tappedout's legality checker is absolutely terrible and wrong; google 'Scryfall.' The best checker by far.

Cheers!

Today's previews were a mixed batch; first, for the positives: Imperial Recruiter was in dire need of a reprint, so it being reprinted is very awesome. I did not need a reprint of Pillage, but having alternate artwork for it is very nice. The reprints of Red Elemental Blast and Blue Elemental Blast are very nice, as well, especially with their new artwork.

The reprint of Living Wish has me hoping that the rest of the wish cycle shall be reprinted, but also has me worried that this will exclude Worldly Tutor from being reprinted.

With that being said, Eladamri's Call would be an amazing reprint, as it is one of the best creature-searching cards in the game.

On the other side, Gisela and the red Akroma did not at all need reprints; it would have been much better to reprint Sigarda and Akroma's Memorial, the latter of which very badly needs a reprint. I am especially displeased with the reprint of Blood Moon, as that card is supremely unfun to play against, and this reprint will make it less expensive and, therefore, more abundant.

The reprint of Dark Ritual is awesome, but I really wish that it had flavor text, specifically, the Planechase flavor text.

While a reprint of Vindicate will lower its price, I really hope that it does not lower the price of the original promo version, which I purchased for $20 (at one point, it was worth over $100, but it currently is worth only $40, although that is still more than what I paid for it).

Overall, I would say that this set has been more positive than negative, thus far, so I hope that the remaining cards are as good as those that were revealed today.

sideboard: Apostle's Blessing or Mizzium Skin? you could play Spire Golem to block delver of secrets. maybe Feldon's Cane/Propaganda vs mill or tokens? Power Sink, Keep Watch, Repeal, Relic of Progenitus or Blue Elemental Blast could be options.
