Countersquall Discussion

Teddyjunior11 on Grixis Delver

The discard doesnt fit in a Delver strategy it works well with Death Shadow because 4 discard spells lose life. In Delver you have actual counterspells like Mana Leak and Countersquall so countering company is not that big of a deal

Skjoldschoennemann for now just for Countersquall in sideboard but i have plans to just drag them out for more swamps and playing Dash Hopes.

Shave 1 or 2 Picker for some permission maybe? And the Fulminators can be Countersquall, still gives you game against tron and they play better against other decks. You can side the Fulminators

Also you are going to need to protect your creatures, so control spells would be well fitting, especially in sideboard, you have lots of options with blue and black but the best would be Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Countersquall, a full set of 4 Fatal Push, Spell Pierce, Dispel and Compelling Deterrence

Damnation is also surprisingly good here in sideboard, yes it wipes your creatures too, but its easy to use it when your opponent has more creatures and then reanimate half of your zombies om the same turn to get card advantage

Hey, I believe I can help you out a bit here. I made my own Esper Demonic Pact deck, and while it's more focused on abusing Pact than using Harmless Offering, input is input. You definitely should run a full playset of Mana Leak over Rune Snag, especially since you're currently not running a full playset to get the maximum pay off for it. You'll definitely want to run a full playset of Lightning Bolts as well, Electrolyze is also a great card. Grixis Charm would be a fantastic addition to your deck, it can act as a removal spell or bounce your pact if you can't get Harmless Offering. Inquisition of Kozilek is imperative for you as well, since it will help you make sure the coast is clear for Harmless Offering. Speaking from experience, don't mainboard Go for the Throat, get Fatal Pushes instead. Sideboard cards you may be interested in are Collective Brutality, Negates, Countersquall, Kolaghan's Command, Venser, Shaper Savant, and Mindbreak Trap.

Mana Leak extends a tempo lead, this deck isn't really going take much tempo running only 1 Tasigur, the Golden Fang I don't think Countersquall is good enough for the main. Because of how bad it is in your bad matchups: Burn and Affinity.

I say: +4 Thoughtseize Main (-2 Side)

+2 Countersquall Side (-2 Main)

-2 Mana Leak

If you want to keep the mana leaks:

+3 Tasigur, the Golden Fang Main

-1 Cryptic Command Main

-2 Countersquall Main

Countersquall may fit in this deck

That's a very valid point, Sych0_Squid. I find that the early control that Mana leak gives is very advantageous because I don't have too much early control already. If you get to the later game I would prefer to imprint a kill spell or Dimir Charm and lock them out that way to gain your card advantage. If you wanted, you could replace one or more Mana Leak with Remand or Countersquall.
