Counterlash Discussion

RexStrangelove on Atraxa Maybeboard - Ideas Seeking ...

3 weeks ago

So I, like many of you, am sitting in a place of giddy excitement as I wait for my new Breed Lethality deck to arrive. I knew it was the one I wanted the very moment they were spoiled, and I was Vindicated to see it outselling even the much-touted Bromance (which is also a completely solid choice, along with everything but Yidris).

Anyway, as I sat waiting, I got to looking through my old cards, plucking out anything that looked particularly juicy for the new deck. My landbase is upper-mediocre for sure, and I still need to grab a few pricier staples (i.e. Archangel of Thune and Doubling Season), but I actually found a surprising number of cards which may totally merit a spot in the lauded 99.

Basically, what I'm hoping to get out of this thread is to pick a few other players' brains about how good my card choices are. If you see something that's like a "OMFG holy shit definitely put that in there," let me know and explain why. If you see anything that's like a "Wow, I maybe see what you were thinking, but that will honestly serve you no good at all," then do the same. With no further ado:




So yeah...if anyone can offer any reasons that any of the above cards would or wouldn't be good choices, I'm all ears. Budget is a concern (I already have all the cards on this list)), but I'm WAAAAY open to hearing better suggestions than the ones I made.

Atraxa is the tits, guys and girls. I haven't been this pumped for a new commander since Kaalia and Animar. Let's put our heads together and perfect this like I know we can.

Counterlash might be nice for you. Counters an opponents' creature and you get to play one for free. Seems nice with the theme.

I don't think you need the extra turns. You should instead look at infinite combat steps. Aggravated Assault + Savage Ventmaw will give you an infinite amount of combat steps, yielding an infinite amount of potential combat damage from Yidris and a potentially infinite amount of cascade triggers!

Pal00ka on Interactive Jori

3 months ago

Brewing up a Jori list aimed at casual multiplayer matches where I interact a lot with my opponents. Mainly looking for additional card suggestions that interact with my opponents hand, library, board, or graveyard.

I want to take advantage of Jori's ability so I've picked out cards like Etherium-Horn Sorcerer, Diluvian Primordial, Stolen Goods, Jace's Mindseeker, Mindclaw Shaman, Spelljack, Counterlash, Spelltwine, Talent of the Telepath, Knowledge Exploitation, and Reversal of Fortune to get a double cast off 1 card.

Cantrips like Peek, Gitaxian Probe, Fact or Fiction, and Windfall let us continue the interactions.

For longevity and win-cons I plan to have token and burn packages based around casting spells and tokens hitting the field (Talrand, Sky Summoner + Impact Tremors & Guttersnipe + Forks). Might add a couple combos later.

Can upload the deck if there's interest and thank you for suggestions!

neomushra on Jalira? I hardly know her.

Maybe you should try Thopter Spy Network, it's a good token generator and can make you draw when needed.Thousand-Year Elixir can be helpfull using jalira the turn she's out.Counterlash trigger guile ability and allow you to cast a useless void winnower (or any high ccm) stuck in your hand.

Flayer Husk is a cheap enabler for Jalira that you don't risk to hit since it's not a creature.

Then these are my personal preferences but i prefer cards like Mimic Vat and Throne of Empires over Cellar Door but it's probably just a question of taste.
