My favorite way to cheez out a eldrazi titan is definitely Counterlash. Deny them a creature AND get a free titan too. What's not to love?

Spicy +1 Counterlash looks fun - i'd all most consider 1 copy of Boseiju, Who Shelters All just to make it uncounterable, and because you have the land searching mechanics for itAs a suggestion, if you want a cheap(ish) but still powerful combo finder: Gifts Ungiven.

Having said that, it looks awesome as is! good job man :D

It doesn't have to be an instant.

Whenever a spell allows you to cast another spell as part of its resolution, it ignores timing restrictions. A similar card is Counterlash, which has this gatherer ruling on it:

"You cast the card in your hand as part of the resolution of Counterlash. Timing restrictions based on the cards type (such as creature or sorcery) are ignored. Other restrictions are not (such as Cast [this card] only during combat)."

This is because of this rule about timing:

116.1. Unless a spell or ability is instructing a player to take an action, which player can take actions at any given time is determined by a system of priority. The player with priority may cast spells, activate abilities, and take special actions.

In this case a spell is instructing you to take an action, which is casting a spell with CMC 3 or less. So it ignores all timing restrictions.

Spelljack and Counterlash are good effects, and defense mechanisms.

Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is pure value, especially with how often things die in an EDH game.

Other than that, I wish you luck and many fun games! Happy gaming!
