Double Negative Discussion

I would include a few Duress effects.Collective Brutality is one that fits well in Kess.

If you are trying to be a storm deck I would cut some of the higher CMC cards and add a Mystic Remora as well. You'll also find Double Negative is the worst counterspell in your deck. Counterflux just does a better job

matthewingram on Ideas for this Blue/Red deck?

1 year ago

First off I've only ever played casually, but with this deck I would like to have it somewhat viable if I were to take it somewhere...

I want to make a deck that uses a lot of instants and sorceries. When looking at cards I saw a lot of Blue/Red cards I thought were cool such as Winterflame Swerve and Double Negative. Also really love the art for Enigma Drake. Other cards I've checked out are Goblin Electromancer and Hypersonic Dragon

So I think the best idea might be to use a bunch of burn and counters. I don't really have a feel for how a deck like this would work out or what else it needs in the deck. I do really like dragons and I know there are several cards that benefit from having dragons such as Draconic Roar and Silumgar's Scorn. But I assume that a deck like this would need some card draw and more specific stuff like Skullcrack

I was hoping that you guys might be able to give me some of the crucial cards that come to mind when thinking of a deck like this. Any must have creatures or spells? Any mechanics that you think would fit in this deck? Oh and if I were to use Hypersonic Dragon how would I best take advantage of the flash ability?

Neotrup on Can Pyromancer's Goggles copy Flying ...

Yes. The spell is a red instant or sorcery. It happens to be a multicolor instant with the colors being red, white, and blue. Followup question: Why does it matter? The benifits are that having two copies of the spell will make it harder to counter (Double Negative or Counterflux would still make short work of it) and that if both resolve you'll untap your creatures twice, allowing you to tap them between the resolutions for tap abilities. Both flying and doublestrike are redundant with multiple instances though, so you won't be dealing extra damage or anything.

DemonDragonJ on Duel Decks: Mind versus Might

In Jhoira's deck, I would like to see Suffocating Blast reprinted, since it never has been, thus far. Also, Counterflux, Double Negative, Electrolyze, and Prophetic Bolt would all be nice, because they are all very awesome cards that woudl work well with her.

I imagine that Lovisa's deck shall contain plenty of warriors, barbarians, and berserkers, so Berserkers of Blood Ridge would make perfect sense, as would Raging Goblin and Goblin Striker. It also would be nice to see Lightning Bolt or Stone Rain reprinted, since they have not been reprinted in some time, as well.

Key to the City seems like it would be more than fitting in a deck like this. Since a fifth of your deck is creatures, I might consider taking out Narset since she might exile some of your more relevant creatures. I would try and refine my Sunforger package. Maybe put a couple counter spells like Absorb or Double Negative in for some control magic. Maybe take out some of the less relevant enchantments since you're trying to get damage due to artifacts out of Akri and value out of artifacts due to Silas. What's your budget looking like for this deck? I can suggest some more stuff but it's more in the 15-20 dollar range.

Yeah I like it!

Right now I'm trying to decide what to replace Double Negative with. Mana Leak is good but can be stopped, Counterflux costs one more but doesn't have the "unless controller pays" and it can't be countered.

I was thinking the same thing about Double Negative. Mana Leak or Counterflux would be good.

All the others look awesome too, I'll see what I can change when I get home. I had Preordain in it before, I'll change back to it or maybe to Brainstorm or Ponder.

I appreciate the Upvote and suggestions greatly man! I'm trying to make this the best deck I've built. And I will check out your deck for sure.

Do you think I should keep x3 Goblin Electromancer or replace him with Wee Dragonauts, I like the goblin but he doesn't effect that much in the deck.

I think that there aren't enough situations where Double Negative is useful to put it in this deck, I suggest replacing that with Mana Leak. Also, Anticipate, Telling Time, Preordain, Serum Visions, Brainstorm, and Ponder would all make great replacements for Divination (I think that's all.) Also, one can never go wrong with Thing in the Ice  Flip or Delver of Secrets  Flip. I have a very similar deck, Lightning, Explosions, and More!, and would love your thoughts.
