I actually like list now, and yes counterspells are big part of every control deck, but i'm not playing anykind of big amount them. Sideboard counters are just for artifact hate and Dispel only pretty much for control mirror.

Depends on meta do i keep Horribly Awry in the deck and Essence Scatter might replace it straight when Amonkhet comes live.

Disallow Is auto include when i just get more them.

Ohh i would love to have Jace, Unraveler of Secrets luckily it has come down on price, so maybe someday.

And yes i don't play too much red cards but i'm not getting off colors, Shock, Harnessed Lightning and Combustible Gearhulk are such important cards for the deck.DukeSilver_19

Hey no problem, sorry about the budget part, I read the desc. but got carried away in the comment. If budgeting is a huge issue check out You basically send cards (through the mail system) and earn PucaPoints. You can randomly send to anyone and get PucaPoints out of it. Then someone will send you stuff too. (One pp is equal to 1 cent, so 100pp is 1 dollar 100,000pp is 1,000 dollars) No money whatsoever, just cards and points my friend. Let me know if you decide to join and I can set you up with an invite. Another thing, I think the Combustible Gearhulk might surprise you, Esper and Jeskai control decks lose cards quick so a fun little card boost like that is always nice. And most of the time when facing a 6/6 first strike people will let you draw the three rather than take 3. N4kk1

Fun deck. I feel like Combustible Gearhulk would be a good top end finisher, and suits some of the synergies in the deck.

  • Step one: Refill your hand.

Sandstone Oracle, Knollspine Dragon, Combustible Gearhulk, Harvester of Souls, and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth are pretty good at putting cards into your hand. Rune-Scarred Demon Will fetch these cards for you if you need them.Sin Prodder and Chandra, Torch of Defiance can each start riots AND give you card advantage. They're pretty outstanding.

  • Step two: Recover.

Artisan of Kozilek will recur a big dude. Sheoldred, Whispering One will recur several.

  • Step three: prevent the board wipe.

Nullstone Gargoyle and Void Winnower shut most of them down. (The Winnower even shuts down Cyc Rift.) Not all of them, but they help out a lot. I maindeck Stromgald Cabal because Wrath of God is obnoxious and terrible. He also starts riots alright if you need him to. (Sometimes, all yo uneed to do is attack.)

Also: Your opponent can't board wipe if there's not a board wipe in their hand. Sire Of Insanity and Myojin of Night's Reach will get you there.

Also also: Your opponent can't board wipe if they can't afford the board wipe. Keldon Firebombers and Myojin of Infinite Rage will get you there.

  • Step four: Ignore the board wipe.

Darksteel Colossus is huge, doesn't care about Wrath of God, and is Free if you Riot hard enough. Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is all of that AND removal on a stick. The Myojins start out indestructible, and can stay that way if you want.

I've been Rioting for a while, and I feel your pain, my friend. Board wipes make me cry. Take a look, you might find something you like: It's Riot Time

Good luck!

Whiskerbro on Blitz goes the Norrin

I love Norin the Wary and the deck. I would very strongly suggest Combustible Gearhulk is a very fun card in multiplayer games, provides either a strong draw engine or a huge chunk of damage, and works well alongside the rest of the ETB hijinx. Also maybe Pia Nalaar or Pia and Kiran Nalaar?
