Creature — Elemental Incarnation

Guile can't be blocked except by three or more creatures.

If a spell or ability you control would counter a spell, instead exile that spell and you may play that card without paying its mana cost.

When Guile is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

Guile Discussion

@DrkNinja I posted in the forums to help look for win-cons. Right now the biggest one is Mind Over Matter + Temple Bell with Guile to ensure I don't mill myself out. I don't normally play blue and wanted a mono blue deck.

You miss the point of Baral, Chief of Compliance in the deck. Its the counter draw synergy. Reducing instant and sorceries is just a bonus. I agree with Talrand, Sky Summoner and Training Grounds (To an extent).

Because Kira, Great Glass-Spinner is amazing and my favorite blue legend.

I'll consider the Peregrine Drake seeing as I already have Deadeye Navigator and Palinchron.

lobrgr no this deck does not die to pithing needle. 2 utility cards die but neither are needed to win the game. I personally loathe the self mil cards, especially with all the lame mill decks in the meta currently.

Seeker & Toolmaster I'll consider your suggestions.

Toolmaster so far in testing (less than 10 actual games) it hasn't been too narrow in answers but I look at the list and feel the same way. I'm so used to catch all spells like Rune Snag and Mana Leak that it just doesn't sit right without them. That being said in performance it actually works well with all the board Control cheap removal it lets me build up a counter or two, especially with Bob. ...I'm still not in disagreement with you but what it needs is a fatty that can swing right away. Maybe Taz or Guile?

Well i get a Blocker 1/1 flyer token every turn. To protect my Planeswalker or my me. Or i can draw a lot of cards every turn, And if i get the emblem, i can pull nearly everything out of my deck (Guile for example, i can bring it back every turn, because if dies he/she comes back in my library). If he/she dont dies a bring a second one... and so on.

DwaginFodder: I'm glad I could inspire you! :) you could also make the Murder of Crows/Goblin Bombardment combo work by including Hostility or Guile instead of an Eldrazi titan, if on a budget, although those cards won't do as much when hardcasted as a backup plan.

A grixis build could do work, though I'd suggest Nekusar, the Mindrazer as your commander there as a secondary win-con. I personally don't think it's worth it for only a few additional cards, but you do you (and let me know how it works out for you!).

Have you considered adding Guile to the deck? I've been meaning to revamp my Ertai deck for some time, and he is definitely one I want to add.

A while back I was going to use more counterspells, but I really don't know how I would make it work in a 5 color deck. I left Dovescape in the maybeboard because it interacts with Eye of the Storm, but I don't have enough to make Guile worth it, which is something I wanted to do at one point because Guile Is fun.

That said, if someone else knows their way around counterspell decks better than me, it would definitely be fun, along with stuff like Ice Cave, Chancellor of the Annex, and Nullstone Gargoyle, Decree of Silence, and a bunch of other things.

considering Dovescape is in your maybe board you could be running Guile for the infinite birds combo

If mill is the problem, throw in an original Zendikar Eldrazi titan, Worldspine Wurm, Guile or any other shuffle your yard back into your library card.

Quest for Ancient Secrets is a good option for an instant response to mill as well.
