Argeaux on Emergency Ban Update: So Long ...

MWorl91 you didn't read what I wrote.

I already understood that, before AgentGreen posted.

Now, show me how many decks out there run a lot of -1/-1 Counters that can match other decks in the meta.

Decks will need to be built to match up against Control.

Which is what I predicted in the "guess the meta" topic.

I don't think that running stuff that puts -1/-1 Counters on Creatures is going to be a good play against a Control deck that runs Torrential Gearhulk and a bunch of Counter spells.

The most common way of putting -1/-1 Counters on things will be Soul-Scar Mage, which I have seen used in quite a few decks.

Control will just Essence Scatter or Harnessed Lightning that thing.

Does everybody get it now?

20 lands seems a little risky even tho I know your curve tops at 4. Bloodrage Brawler is cool but I really don't know how much I like him for this, 3 toughness is dangerous with Harnessed Lightning being so popular and if they kill it you take a 2-for-1 since you had to discard, I see you have Fiery Temper that works with his discard but that means you'd have to play him off curve to cast temper and playing him anytime other than turn two might be underwhelming. Hazoret the Fervent likes a small hand but you seem to have a good enough curve that you wont dump your hand that fast? Bloodrage and Rhonas the Indomitable are good buddies tho. Ever consider Khenra Charioteer? He seems sweet for all your big guys that don't have trample. Insult / Injury seems like an amazing red aggro finisher if that's something you'd like. We'll never know until it gets played but that's my 2 cents. Stay slippery!

After play testing it quite a bit the Fiery Temper have been removed as have Tormenting Voice in their place is Glimmer of Genius and Harnessed Lightning

Even though it will be much harder on the mana base, I think you are going to need Grasp of Darkness over Harnessed Lightning if Gideon of the Trials takes off like everyone thinks it will

TheBaker_666 If you want energy then Harnessed Lightning is a good alternative to the other burn spells previously mentioned.

Tormenting Voice can be used as an alternative draw engine instead of Cathartic Reunion.

Otherwise you make some good points. Because the deck relies heavily on Paradox Engine it is troublesome that you lose a few good draw spells from blue. You want to make sure you won't end up with no cards in hand while digging for the key components for your combo. Hopefully Cathartic Reunion or Tormenting Voice can fill these spots.

Torrential Gearhulk is really good in these decks, I also personally prefer Harnessed Lightning in red decks than grasp.

I've also found that the scry from Jace, Unraveler of Secrets is more valuable than ob-nix's ability to destroy creatures.

I actually like list now, and yes counterspells are big part of every control deck, but i'm not playing anykind of big amount them. Sideboard counters are just for artifact hate and Dispel only pretty much for control mirror.

Depends on meta do i keep Horribly Awry in the deck and Essence Scatter might replace it straight when Amonkhet comes live.

Disallow Is auto include when i just get more them.

Ohh i would love to have Jace, Unraveler of Secrets luckily it has come down on price, so maybe someday.

And yes i don't play too much red cards but i'm not getting off colors, Shock, Harnessed Lightning and Combustible Gearhulk are such important cards for the deck.DukeSilver_19
