Delay

Instant

Counter target spell. If the spell is countered this way, remove it from the game with three time counters on it instead of putting it into its owner's graveyard. If it doesn't have suspend, it gains suspend. (At the beginning of its owner's upkeep, remove a counter from that card. When the last is removed, the player plays it without paying its mana cost. If it's a creature, it has haste.)

Delay Discussion

Shakespeare314 on Jesus, take the wheel!

2 weeks ago

I have very little experience with Storm, but I'll throw in my two cents:

Pact of Negation and Force of Will seem very good to protect you on your combo turn. I would also point out that since Helm of Obedience can only kill one player at a time, you are relying on surviving three turn cycles with an active infinite combo on the table. More than likely, it seems like the other players will gang up to kill you before you win. Finally, Foundry Inspector seems a little slow, and is basically a worse Etherium Sculptor. Perhaps cut it for something like a Delay or the aforementioned PoN or FoW? I think that more counterspells could really increase this deck's resiliency. I do like the Nekusar wheel effects subtheme, though. It really adds some depth to the typical Grixis storm list. +1.

So few questions, First up... What are the thoughts on running a commander partner pair that could help? The really big one being Thrasios, Triton Hero, a card draw outlet in the command zone seems more beneficial. Additionally you are running enough artifacts such that Akiri, Line-Slinger may be a notable threat.

Next, A few card questions... -Arcane Denial vs Delay? This is a more recent one to me but it Delay has been better unless you are really wanting the card draw from Arcane Denial. Thoughts?
-Path to Exile vs Swords to Plowshares? Wouldn't life be better for you to give away than the possible ramp?
-Orim's Chant vs Silence? Any big reason for Orim's here? Silence hits all opponents, same could be said with a Grand Abolisher but I think I like the insant better.

LOL yea it's tough man those are just extremely good for their obvious reasons.

On a budget though? Delay is fantastic.

Tangerinefox on Doomtide Thrasios

Hey Dan, been playing on Cockatrice for the past few days with this deck and I have to tell you I've been absolutely loving it!

There is so much you can do with this list it is really quite amazing. Fast combo or grindy control matches. Thrasios is the man. Leaving mana up for a counter but they didn't play anything relevant? Activate Thrasios. Someone just played a gamewinning card / combo but only have 5 mana, Tharios and a Vamp/Mystic Tutor in hand? No problem tutor that sucker up, draw with Thrasios and bam you're not dead!

One thing I noticed is the lack of any draw 2 @ 2cmc like Night's Whisper. Had a Dday pile going and would've won if I had the card so I took Delay out in the hopes I ever had the same opportunity for that pile.

A couple cards that come to mind here would be Timebender, Delay, and Dust of Moments. I like what you've got going on here so far. I'm also excited about As Foretold, looks like it could have some really cool interactions.

rockleemyhero on [Damia Primer] One Good Turn Deserves Another

I like it, cool deck mate! However, as powerful as this looks, it feels a touch too slow in competitive EDH. I would switch time stretch for a mere Time Warp if you still want to keep that win con of infinite turns. JTMS, day's undoing, and whispering madness look like the weakest links imo. I'd replace them with more counterspells (5 is far too few for a control deck in a 100 card deck, try Flusterstorm, Delay, or Arcane Denial) or spot removal (like trusty ol' Abrupt Decay. Where's Mystic Remora? That card is bonkers if you are playing against other competitive decks, easily one of the strongest auto includes in blue. Ad naus is a super powerful card, but at an average CMC of 2.6, it's a bit high and you aren't going to get many cards off of it as you'd like. But i understand if you are just using it as a Stroke of Genius effect.

If you decide to gain an infinite budget or play on cockatrice, I'd recommend the obligatory $$ spells including but not limited to: Timetwister, Imperial Seal, Three Visits, Mana Drain, and maybe Grim Tutor

Again, great deck, it feels very close to its maximum potential. +1 from me and gl! Here's a solid BUG control list for competitive EDH I'd recommend looking over, although it plays a tad differently with tasigur at the helm

Edwardjt on Baral, Chief of Compliance

1 month ago

Consider spells that take advantage of Baral, Chief of Compliance's first ability. Essence Scatter, Arcane Denial, and Delay are some good examples. They essentially cost 1 and reward you with a loot effect. Whir of Invention also seems real good because Baral gives you a "free" mana that can be used to tutor out Alhammarret's Archive at instant speed. Of there are other power spells like Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Mana Drain, and Force of Will you could run.
