Convolute Discussion

Senomar on Jhoira, the draw captain

Hey my friend ! Sweet deck :) I see you run Convolute or Quench ; but why don't you use Mana Leak ? The card is cheap, 10 times better and one of the best counterspell in the format. Same is true for Memory Lapse .

Urza, Lord High Artificer and Emry, Lurker of the Loch are not artifact but they are as sweet as a Sai, Master Thopterist or an Padeem, Consul of Innovation ;)

Okay, I have a few cards I question.

Battle Mastery doesn't really seem to fit the deck

Azorius Chancery is just bad

Evolving Wilds can be replaced by Fabled Passage (or add one of both, but if you do that also add Terramorphic Expanse

Convolute could be replaced by any auto-counter that also costs three mana (like

Sinister Sabotage ) unless the goal here is just to make them spend more mana and not to actually stop them. Same with Offering to Asha

Into the Roil is not an effective bounce spell for its cost

And then a few to recommend.

If you like Scytheclaw , Quietus Spike does nearly the same thing.

Icefall Regent is a very good fit for this deck.

Norn's Annex is another thing similar to Ghostly Prison , but can cost your opponent life if they aren't playing white.

Cryptic Command is similar to Ojutai's Command , but be wary of the triple blue cost.

Mystic Confluence and Force of Will are both good counterspells.

And then Mana Drain is just boss.

Things to add:

Island

Spell Swindle

Talisman of Progress

Mind Stone

Fellwar Stone

Hedron Archive

Ojutai Monument

Commander's Sphere

Worn Powerstone

Darksteel Ingot

Azorius Signet

Azorius Locket

Things to remove:

Sphinx of Uthuun

Also remove any counterspell that is over cmc 4 and asks a opponent to pay a set amount mana like: Convolute and Scattering Stroke

Counterspells like: Condescend that ask a player to X are okay to stay, they are the kind you want along with the unconditional ones.

Hope it helps fam.

Gidgetimer on Oloro - commander

You said in your thread in the deck help forum that you wanted to get it down to 66, so that is 18 cuts.

Trespasser's Curse - Curses feel unnecessarily antagonistic and this one doesn't do much.

Curator's Ward - Unlikely to ever draw you cards.

Ashes of the Abhorrent - Not good unless your meta is very graveyard heavy.

Thaumatic Compass  Flip - Frontside is bad, I find maze of ith to not be necessary in oloro.

Prowler's Helm - Not a very good piece of evasion equipment.

Wing Shards - Bad except against voltron.

Nightmare's Thirst - Hardly ever going to kill anything of importance.

Mana Leak - The type of games you are likely to play with this deck tax counters won't matter.

Convolute - See above.

Healing Grace - 1 shot small amounts of lifegain aren't worth a card slot.

Dark Ritual - Rituals aren't great in commander unless it is to ramp directly into a victory and you have no insta-wins.

Vampire Sovereign - ETB doesn't justify paying the price for the body in a non-blink deck.

Angel of the God-Pharaoh - 6 mana 4/4 isn't worth it just because it has cycling.

Archangel Avacyn  Flip - Boros color identity and illegal in this deck.

Deadeye Brawler - Just run Shadowmage Infiltrator if you want the effect.

Diamond Mare - Going to gain you much less life than you think it will.

Underworld Coinsmith - Effects aren't strong enough.

Bonus round, these cards are all relatively weak and I really think that maybe you wanted angel tribal and didn't want to say it was a tribal deck.

I say if you wanna pay 3 for Convolute go with a hard counter like Dissolve . If the double blue in the cost scares you then I'd suggest Condescend / Mana Leak instead.

Also the synergy of artifacts may make Shrapnel Blast a neat choice over Bombard

I've always wanted to see this combo work, and I stumbled across this deck when I briefly named my deck (now Aggresive Prison Sex) Black Sabbath. One of the best bands in the history of metal, by the way. Now I'm assuming that this is budget so I'm going to keep these suggestions frugal. Instead of Convolute put Mana Leak or Counterspell, although it seems that Blue isn't a necessary color in here. I'd recommend taking it out completely and putting in more black removal, like Dismember, Geth's Verdict, Grasp of Darkness, Fatal Push, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Fleshbag Marauder, and Walk the Plank. I personally don't think that Priest of the Blood Rite is necessary, it might just hurt you after they kill the demon. Grave Titan, Vampire Nighthawk, Gifted Aetherborn, Phyrexian Obliterator, Skinrender, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, and such. I'm just naming good cards you should consider now, Hymn to Tourach, Torment of Hailfire, Sinkhole, Geralf's Messenger, Dread Wanderer, Diregraf Ghoul, and MOST IMPORTANTLY Dark Ritual. I just think a deck called Black Sabbath should be mono-black. Sorry if I rambled, I just want this deck to kick ass. No deck named after an amazing band should have to lose even once. Good luck

Why are you running Convolute Instead of Spell Shrivel or Mana Leak and if you're running Minister of Inquiries have 4xAether Hub in there just incase
