Take these over the guildgates

Drowned Catacomb
Glacial Fortress
Isolated Chapel

And you need these

Watery Grave

Hallowed Fountain

These are good too. You want as few come into play tapped lands as possible, but the scry lands are always good.

Sunken Ruins

Fetid Heath

Mystic Gate

Temple of Deceit

Temple of Enlightenment

Spell Pierce is weak in this format with things like Sol Ring

Dissipate is a direct improvement over Cancel
Absorb is a card and so is Countersquall

Sensei's Divining Top to go with your Counterbalance though I don't know how well counterbalance will work in EDH

Solemn Simulacrum

Serra Ascendant

Azorius Signet and Dimir Signet

Venser's Journal is a tossup if you want it or not

Supreme Verdict

Terminus

Damnation

Cyclonic Rift

Merciless Eviction

Wrath of God is a straight improvement over Day of Judgment

Vindicate

Hero's Downfall is a straight upgrade over Murder

Path to Exile

Swords to Plowshares

Sorin, Grim Nemesis

Wasteland

Strip Mine

samofdrones on Pact offering

1 week ago

I played a version of this deck at FNM. The thing about Demonic Pact is that you can't choose the option until your next upkeep, so when you play it you're going to be tapped out and net nothing from tapping 4 lands until your next turn. Remove and a few 1 drop counters are key for a turn 4 or 5 pact.

2 Creeping Tar Pit

4 Demonic Pact

4 Serum Visions

2 Harmless Offering

3-4 Ancestral Vision or 2-3 Sleight of Hand

1 Countersquall

If you really want turn 4 pact - consider

2-4 Disrupting Shoal

When using this card you'll want to make sure that you have a fair amount of 1 / 2 / 4 drop blue cards as things you want to counter are generally those CMC.

Just pointing out there are more Ultimata out there than just the cruel one - may be worth a look. Also: Voidslime, Counterflux and Countersquall are good. Ash Barrens is some more nice fixing.

goblinguiderevealpls all the cards you said are phenomenal. Austere Command is a card I've been wanting to put in my deck for some time now. Regrettably I haven't been able to get my hands on one. Once I do you can be certain it is going in. Also, I was waiting for the price to go down on Anguished Unmaking and Utter End to add them. They are better than Banishing Light and Oblation, even though they are more mana intensive. I got distracted and forgot to pick them up. Thanks for the reminder!

As for Countersquall it is a great card but as far as counters go it is a little low impact. The two life doesn't really mean much in a format with 40 life. I'd more often than not want a counter that can be more versatile. Hour of Revelation is a powerful card but it's safer to run a board wipe that will keep my artifacts in play.

Thanks for the feedback! Are you planning on making a Sen Triplets decks?

Ive never played with or against sen before so there could be reason not to run these, but i feel like Anguished Unmaking and Utter End are near-staple orzhov removal in edh, might be too slow for French, but still is very potent spot removal, also Countersquall is potentually strong in 20 life control formats, lastly, Austere Command can easily be moded in your favor to act as a second Merciless Eviction or Hour of Revelation

ToolmasterOfBrainerd on The Perfect Balance (Grixis Primer)

I'm glad to hear you still have faith in grixis and magic in general. The new list looks super fun.

On your comment about the security you feel like you get from Countersquall, that's the same reason I play my Dispel in the mainboard, but I can't afford to hold up 2 mana and the main cards I care about are instants.

In your sideboard I think the Dragon's Claws should be Collective Brutality. It fuels delve, doesn't die to Destructive Revelry, and still wins burn. It's useful against non-burn decks too.

Oloro_Magic on My creatures are your creatures

3 weeks ago

First off, cut down to 60 cards, a lot of the shapeshifter's aren't really needed as you know. You really only need Phantasmal Image, Evil Twin, Metallic Mimic (all creature types means a massive buff), a couple Amoeboid Changeling and then Chameleon Colossus which you have forgotten. You could also consider Scavenging Ooze. After that you have to update the mana base (again as you know).

Finally, changelings are not really strong enough to win by themselves (especially without Mirror Entity) and as such I would include a good amount of control: Fatal Push, Spell Snare, Countersquall, Mana Leak, and (non-budget) Snapcaster Mage and Cryptic Command.

Flyboarg on Unblockable speed up

Countersquall is nice because it's low cost and help for spell that you can't block with creatures
