Countersquall Discussion

movmou on I have Esper, I have a Delver, Uh, Esper Delver

1 day ago

Hey bro, cool idea! I've played tonnes of delver in both modern and legacy (tempo is my favorite archetype). At the moment I'm testing out sultai in modern for the same reasons you are testing this - bolt is in a bad place :(

A couple of small suggestions:- test remands over mana leaks here... I think you won't be disappointed. The card is busted in a tempo shell. Also, you play path to exile so leak becomes dead much faster than in other delver lists whereas remand at worst always cycles.- I would cut 1 tasigur for a geist. he is really good in modern right now, many decks just lose to this card especially backed up with cheap creature removal (which your deck has in spades). No bolts means you wouldn't want more than a single copy I think but the card really is good at the moment. Cut tasigur because even though he is a sweet threat, he is actually less valuable in a delver shell than in say a midrange/control shell - you often don't have enough lands to activate him therefore losing out on that sweet sweet CA.

Other than that I really like your numbers. 12 is a pretty nice number for creatures in modern delver as you don't have good top-of-library manipulation i.e. brainstorm. Lingering souls is a fantastic threat that also flips delver which is great, but 3cmc is rough. I like that you don't have a full playset here, although it does work well with thought scour :)

Some decent SB options to consider - Fulminator Mage, Kor Firewalker, Stony Silence, Celestial Purge, Countersquall, Surgical Extraction, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Card:Ceremonious Rejection

If you are interested here is my current list I'm testing for sultai - points of note include no thought scour, instead running think twice for some sweet sweet CA

@bradc1988 such a great call Stubborn Denial it makes totally sense to add this card to this deck instead of Countersquall thx a lot for your suggestion :-) !

Stubborn Denial might be more synergistic rather than Countersquall with your specific creature base. Remember Stubborn Denials Ferocious ability triggers on top of Bedlam Reveler's Prowess too. You do lose the burn which is what makes Countersquall so great, but it's much easier leaving open than .

Also 1x Izzet Staticaster for the sideboard is usually pretty solid.

Also I would -1 Blood Crypt and +1 Watery Grave

Terminate?? Maybe in place of Kolaghan's Command or CountersquallAlso Lost Legacy instead or in addition to Infinite Obliteration

@Izaxor Thx for your deeper analysis! i think i will test your suggested cards instead of vapor snag, a big reason why i added vapor snag is his mana cost and i can fill the graveyard and add tokens more quickly with Young Pyromancer and in general i think the card is underrated... but i will sill play 12x spells with one mana cost with your suggested cards. Countersquall is a good call too, i will give it a try ! thx a lot!

Interesting deck! Just a couple suggestions:

2x Temur Battle Rage -> 2x Snapcaster Mage
TBR is a combo card, and this deck looks like it wants to be playing the longer game. Plus, then you can loop Snap and K-Command, which is disgusting value.

Drop Vapor Snag. You have strictly better removal in Terminate and Fatal Push. In the place of VS, I suggest:
+1x Terminate
+3x Countersquall
Terminate is one of the best removal spells in your colors. I think you want at least three. Countersquall helps you protect your big beaters from removal, especially Path. Being able to play an Aristocrat and then hold up countermagic to save it seems like an easy way to win.

I remember playing against a Wrexial, the Risen Deep deck (I used Tariel, Reckoner of Souls), and my opponent won through the life loss from Countersquall. I may have gotten a little salty from that game.

That's cool, i'll take just the duel deck one. So your
1x Countersquall 7.6
1x Command Tower 1.2
1x Cryptbreaker 1.7
1x Diregraf Colossus 1
1x Brainstorm 1
12.5

For something like my
Solemn Simulacrum 4.6
Laboratory Maniac 3.3
Rune-Scarred Demonfoil icon 7.8
15.7

We can call it even.. Sound good?
