SynergyBuild on Omnipotence Comes With An Iron Grip

2 days ago

Darkshadow327 sorry about your comment being cut, but why cut Dack Fayden, I mean, he us a little off-flavor, but he is low-mana card selection, a Faithless Looting every turn, and can steal Gilded Lotuses and Caged Suns till there is no tommorrow, with a decent ultimate to boot. I mean, he sees legacy and cEDH play because if you steal a turn one Sol Ring or late gate bomb artifact, he will take it, and otherwise is just ticking up, digging though your deck, and getting closer to a late game ultimate, all for 3 mana, considered better than Jace, the Mind Sculptor in many decks, though obviously generally worse than JTMS overall, and is just a good walker.

I'd agree cutting Chromatic Lantern should be cut, it is okay at fixing, but this deck shouldn't need more fixing than it has, except for Cruel Ultimatum, the hardest god-dang thing to cast.

I'd also argue for Flusterstorm, Counterflux or Countersquall, I mean it is 1 mana, and still stops most storm decks. Mindbreak Trap is also fun!

sylvannos on Old mono blue control refresh

There's a lot of viable Mono-Blue Control (and control/combo) decks in Legacy.

Some you might like:

Mono-Blue Painter
Omnishow
Counter Bridge
Mono-Blue Fish (this one isn't a control deck, but it's worth looking at because it's cheap to build, can be configured for Modern, and has a lot of overlap with other decks in the format)

I'm partial towards Omnishow, which is a combo deck that plays very "draw, go" before it dumpsters all over your opponent's face.

You might also like U/W Standstill. The deck can be made mono-blue, but it loses some of its power. Decklist can be found here. To make it mono-blue, you'd cut:

-4x Myth Realized
-4x Terminus
-4x Swords to Plowshares
-1x Council's Judgment
-3x Tundra
-1x Karakas

...and add something like:

+1x Faerie Conclave
+1x Mishra's Factory
+2x Island
+2x Daze
+1x Flusterstorm
+4x Delver of Secrets  Flip
+2x Counterspell
+4x Preordain

Enral on Tuvasa Enchantress | **PRIMER**

Andros240: cEDH as in doomsday Zur and flash-hulk? If that is the meta, this commander would have trouble competing but to have a fighting chance you'll have to cut most of the slow enchantments for more lower cmc interaction. We need to start off with the typical cEDH interaction base of:

1x Arcane Denial

1x Brainstorm

1x Path to Exile

1x Swords to Plowshares

1x Chain of Vapor

1x Counterspell

1x Cyclonic Rift

1x Delay

1x Dispel

1x Force of Will

1x Mana Drain

1x Muddle the Mixture

1x Negate

1x Pact of Negation

1x Swan Song

1x Mental Misstep

1x Flusterstorm

From there it's fine tuning on what to cut. If you can't afford Academy Rector, Show and Tell does a fine job cheating Omniscience into play. Hope this helps!

Well, yes, Steel Sabotage is much better than Spell Pierce, Flusterstorm, and Annul against mana rocks, no argument here, however I'd argue that Flusterstorm or Annul being a much higher-priority draw after turn 2 than Spell Pierce, as you have either dealt with their mana supply enough to stop them from casting spell, or haven't and they have an excess of mana, and can pay for it. They might be able to pay for Flusterstorm as well in the latter case, but not when storming off, so it is a hard save then, over nearly any other counterspell, with a couple exceptions like Mindbreak Trap.

I'd say the much better use after turn two matters slightly more than a bit less use before turn three, however it is certainly meta dependent.

Relative to the Flusterstorm or Annul vs. Spell Pierce , I tend to agree with Winterblast .... Fluster won't eat rocks and avoiding early ramp is goal #1 for Augustin (I've taken a fair share of people out of the game by eating turn 1 Sol Rings/Mana Crypts), Annul is a little too situational in target to give the consistency that Spell Pierce can, (though still a phenomenal card, I prefer running Steel Sabotage as it can be used defensively OR for ramping), and IMO would be a very "low-priority" draw after turn 2 (I'd take almost any other of my counterspells, including Steel Sabotage, after a 2 turn draw, and would place lesser value with this in an opening hand than Spell Pierce, because rocks AND protecting your boardstate from disruption).

I understand, however, the Flusterstorm is still very powerful, I would still suggest Annul if countering artifact ramp is your goal.

+1!

Love the build, I would only recommend Flusterstorm over Spell Pierce! Good luck!

@SynergyBuild Thanks! Mindbreak Trap is pretty good, but none of my opponents are really trying to storm out so I'd rather just have the cheaper spell that always works. Flusterstorm serves the same purpose as Mindbreak Trap anyway, it's just cheaper.
