This deck looks like a perfect candidate for Dash Hopes.

Damping Sphere against Tron and Storm. Fulminator Mage against Tron and other Decks with special lands, like an Azcanta. Infernal Reckoning against tron or Eldrazi. Pithing Needle or Murderous Rider against Planeswalker heavy decks. Nihil Spellbomb against Dredge or just for grave hate. Ashiok, Dream Render for grave hate. Damping Matrix against Affintiy/Eggs. Dash Hopes for surprise Counter Magic (I Like this alot, espacially in aggro styled decks). Spellskite against Burn, Boggles or Infect. Abrade against Artifacts. Disenchant against Artifacts and Enchantments. Leave No Trace against Enchantments. Kambal, Consul of Allocation against Burn or Control. Collective Brutality against Burn or Control. Rakdos Charm against creature heavy decks like Elfes or Tokens or Artifacts or for grave hate. Wear / Tear against Artifacts or Enchantments. Crumble to Dust Against Tron.

Depends on your meta, what decks you want to side against and what do you need in addition to your main 60. Which Match ups are bad for you and ho to play against that. I play the following Sideboard in my Mardu Vehicle Deck: 1x Chandra, Torch of Defiance 1x Collective Brutality 3x Duress 2x Kambal, Consul of Allocation 1x Nahiri, the Harbinger 2x Nihil Spellbomb 1x Rakdos Charm 1x Settle the Wreckage 2x Wear 1x Wrath of God

I am wildly guessing,DemonDragonJ, maybe they worded Dash Hopes the way it is for two headed giant or any other team play format? Or for funky political stuff in commander or conspiracy games.

Massacar, do not forget Dash Hopes, another excellent none-blue counterspell, although I do not understand why that card allows any player to pay life, rather than the controller of the targeted spell.

SynergyBuild, what makes Mana Tithe and Lapse of Certainty different from Illumination?

Dash Hopes is also a counterspell (or burn spell...)

Deadly Dilemma


Counter target creature or planeswalker spell unless its controller sacrifices a permanent of that type.

I'd like to see a common green sorcery

Interesting idea, I’m thinking that you could go creature-less to focus exclusively on removal and control, while running Dash Hopes and Smallpox. But then it may start looking like an old school The Rack deck. If you want to go that route, you can focus more on discard too. Liliana of the Veil is a good enabler for discard and sacrifice as well

maybe remove Remorseless Punishment and Mental Agony for 4 copies of Dash Hopes. However, I'd have to playtest to really know how many you Dash Hopes you should add.
