Downpour Discussion

Tyrant-Thanatos on can your opponent tap an ...

3 months ago

I feel like I should add that there is actually a circumstance under which your opponent could make successful use of a tapping spell here.

Lets say your opponent has a Downpour in hand, and untapped lands necessary to cast it. You have Gemhide Sliver or Manaweft Sliver and two other miscellaneous Slivers in play (maybe Metallic Slivers, or tokens from Hive Stirrings). Now, you want to tap these three slivers to cast say Opaline Sliver. During your Upkeep, before you draw your card for the turn, if you choose to do nothing, thereby passing priority to your opponent, your opponent can cast Downpour targeting your three slivers. Now, you can still tap them for mana in response, but that mana will disappear the moment your upkeep step ends, so unless you have an Instant in your hand you can cast, that mana is useless to you. With no instants in your hand, your only choices are to tap you slivers for worthless mana that immediately disappears, or let Downpour resolve and tap your slivers anyways. The result is the same, your slivers are tapped, and you can't make use of them.

Than Downpour, Not Chronic Flooding. Sorry!

Mermaidsheep- Shelldock Isle is a nice card, and I used to run it in my Esper Salt Mill as a wincon with Haunting Echoes, but I would only run one Spiral in this anyhow, making the odds of hitting it with hideaway slim.

As for Thought Scour, it offers draw and works with the archetype of the deck, but would be better suited for a deck running Jace's Erasure/Sphinx's Tutelage.

Fog Bank is one of my favorite blockers, Im unsure of why I didn't put it in here sooner.

Kiora's Dismissal is handy, but I would probably go with Downpour or Gigadrowse. that way, they lose a combat phase and then it buys me a turn to get out more Mesmeric Orbs if possible. But your suggestion sparked those ideas, so thank you for your help!

Play hard, friends!

Sweet theme! seems that Topplegeist delirium is not active most of the games. I would play 4 Drogskol Captain. Would replace Fogwalker with Selfless Spirit. Downpour would be trrible vs control as you won't use its max potential, I suggest trying Exhaustion instead, very versatile.

You accept all suggestions? It needs Duneblast.

Seriously though, I might switch out a couple of Downpours for Sleeps. Twice the mana cost and not instant speed, but at worst twice the effect, and potential for more.

Looks really cool (aka looks really annoying to play against ;))Spiteful Visions might be a card you'd want to try out (Underworld Dreams is very tricky to cast reliably)

Some combination of Counterspells/Bounce will probably net you more Life than Sun Droplet will. If you play Bounce/tap spells Negate is Always pretty decent and/or Dispel. Exhaustion looks very good here, since you just want to buy more turns. Blustersquall/Downpour or something similar (there are probably better versions of the effect) might be interesting (or an idea for some sideboard cards.)

Yep, that works. Downpour is targeting each one of those creatures and Willbreaker will get a trigger for each one of those targets.
