In today's spoilers, thunderkin awakener, tale's end, and brought back all caught my attention; the awakener will be insane with Ball Lightning , Spark Elemental , and Lightning Skelemental , and tale's end is a nice compromise between Stifle and Disallow .

@bushido_man96: Hmph. I guess that is an understandable case of yours. Very well. It's in. Negate should be a no-brainer also, but I'd look silly if I didn't run it in any Based deck that doesn't run also ( Dovin's Veto would be a better choice IMO, though Negate is just fine also.) Ironic I haven't used Disallow for quite a while, I liked it. & a 2/2 Flier is only marginal as a downside. So the following other stuff will be added. Anything else not noted will be explained why:

Counterspell : The Golden Answer; in the form of a famous quote from The Phantom Tollbooth: Why not?

Foil : Losing one life is a minor draw back, but EXILING a card also? I apologize for this, but this is why I wanted to know how Rashmi, Eternities Crafter can recur Exiled stuff. I wish I could ask someone about this while Rashmi is still Tier 2... Discarding 2 cards at least means there is potential of some kind of Recursion Engine, Is also cheaper to even HARDCAST, & you don't need Riftsweeper to get your exiled stuff back. That, & I'd prefer Mana Drain Force of Will anyway. It also sucks that Riftsweeper isn't a Human; she's a damned Elf. Crap.

Arcane Denial : Well, I guess I could punish someone for having a hand in the first place... Tee-Hee…~

Disallow : Wow. How fragging long has it been since I used this? If there is any better; Most likely not, I replace this.

Swan Song Cheaper than Muddle the Mixture , & can also target Enchantments. Quite odd that giving the targeted a 2/2 Flier probably seems like nothing...

Negate : The Silver Answer as I parody The Phantom Tollbooth: Because Dovin demands you to, or you will be detained. XP

Ah, whatever. I think that should be good enough; I already mentioned why Force of Will doesn't make the cut. Now, after I add these, I think it's time to chop some Theros Glop...

Why Arcane Denial ? Because its a frickin' counterspell, and you asked for counterspells. And it costs 2 mana. So many people playing EDH get so damned worried about their opponents getting cards. But if they build their decks with half a brain anyways, they are going to get cards. Yes, Arcane Denial is pretty much card disadvantage. But you counter something that you didn't want to happen.

Are you running Disallow , Swan Song , Negate ?

Wouldn't Delay technically be a better permission than Disallow in your build?

Chhris on Vorosh, the Hunter[Infect--CMDR Damage]Budget

I understand you put this list together with cards you already had, and for that effort, it's pretty good so far!! Is this for your friend to play?

There are couple of cards that can be upgraded to better effects, like Murder , Naturalize , and Negate all have better, more powerful options out there available to you. I would focus on improving cards like these with budget alternatives, that still do the job but strictly better. e.g.: Bontu's Last Reckoning , Creeping Corrosion and Disallow respectively, but not necessarily those exact cards.

I actually like Become Immense and Bounty of Might in this deck! but Giant Growth feels weak. Also the tricky thing will be protecting Vorosh from hate, so any other protection spells will be good too. So far I like it!!

Sorry it took me that long to answer you guys (AGAIN)!!!

  • Psychonoud Thanks for the comment! I prefer BA over Rolling Earthquake because of the mana cost and it dosen't deals me damage (most of the time I'm the target of the aggro decks). Phyrexian Tyranny isn't my best "pain" card and I use it only for finish the game, and Raiders' Wake is a much safer option, I agree with you. Notion Thief and Consecrated Sphinx are draw machines that help me combo off. Paradox Engine is a must in this deck!!! I run a lot of mana rocks, with PE I can easily "chain" my wheels.

  • n0130dy13th Thanks a lot! The first time I build this deck back at 2016 it was basically the Commander 2013 Precon with about 20 different cards. The biggest and more important change I made was the mana base. It helped me A LOT at my LGS!

  • yuval Thank you mate, I still need to give the explanation a update. There are 2 things I don't like in Kederekt Parasite . 1 - I need a red permanent and I run only 2 of them and the commander. This card makes me too reliant on Nekusar. I don't like it. 2- It's a creature, the easiest permanent type to remove in the game. I used to run Arcane Denial but the 2 cards draw is a big drawback, a combo player will not care about the damage if it brings him/her closer to winning the game. Moreover, Disallow also counters activated abilitys, its a huge improvement over AD for only one more .

  • Falkenstein That price is because the list is almost all composed of foil/promo cards. And some expensive cards like the old dual lands and some mana rocks can be replaced in order to the list became more accessible.

  • Jamirostyle Thanks! This card is awesome! It will replace Incendiary Command !!

Stormchaser Mage , Pteramander , and Enigma Drake could all find a home in this deck. You're also pretty low on both removal and counterspells for a deck that wants to be 'control'. Flame Slash and Lava Coil are decent removal options that won't break the bank. 6-8 targetted removal spells will be what you want to shoot for. 1-2 of something that can deal with a whole board of guys is a good idea too, like Sweltering Suns or Anger of the Gods . Spell Snare , Logic Knot , and Cryptic Command are some of the most popular counterspells that you're missing. Remand , Counterflux , Disallow , and Supreme Will are all less popular options that still get the job done, and can save you from shelling out $120 for a set of cryptics. Feel free to mix and match counters, but be sure you're getting a good mix of ones that are powerful early game and ones that are powerful late game. Try to shoot for 6-10 counterspells, your sweet spot will be somewhere in there. As for cuts, Ral Zarek , Clout of the Dominus , Frostburn Weird , and Void Snare will all probably struggle to pull their weight in the deck.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

Also, as far as counterspells go I like Arcane Denial more than Disallow . Sure, draw your 2 cards - but they'll hurt and they'll probably wheel anyway.
