StopShot on The combo potential with this …

I got it.

Lich's Mirror + Hive Mind + Last Chance OR Final Fortune

Personally though, you could substitute Lich's Mirror for Angel's Grace and still win that way too.

Hive Mind for crazy gifting shenanigans when using cards like Role Reversal. You also force everybody to give to their spells to each other

SimicVisionRy on Card creation challenge

1 month ago

Epicurus, it seems to check out from my end at least; Mutate says that the target must be non-Human, and as Changeling is both Human and non-Human, makes sense Mutate wouldn't be able to target a Changeling.

That being said, Mutate is a quirky ability to say the least, so let's reward it even more!

Bonder's Insight


Search your library for a creature with Mutate. Then, if you control a Mutate creature, you may reveal a creature with Mutate from your hand. If you do, you may copy target triggered ability on a creature.

Seems pretty deece for 4 mana; grab a creature, and double a Mutate trigger. Instant speed, so just declining the tutor can help with Mutate triggers. Is 4 mana good for that? Maybe, maybe not.

For the next challenge, I love chaos. Create a card that screams chaos, in function or form similar to Hive Mind or Warp World!

DeinoStinkus on The Battle of the Counterspells!

3 months ago

Hey, just wanted everyone to have a friendly discussion comparing these five counterspells: Swan Song, Void Shatter, Force of Will, Pact of Negation, and Mana Drain.

Swan Song is the only one on this list that I own, and is the limit of what I will currently pay to get a counterspell. It performs greatly against Voltron and Spellslinger, okat against Combo and Ramp, and not well against any Aggro or Wide strategies. The unpredictability of Swan Song makes it slightly less powerful than Force or Pact, but for a lesser price it is worth it.

Void Shatter is a flavor win for me. I'm an Eldrazi nut, so I love the Devoid cards. And Void Shatter is a cool one to look at. Honestly though, it isn't as good as the others, as it's a colorless Dissipate. However, Mystical Dispute can't weaken it, so it's not terrible.

Force of Will is one of the most recognizable counterspells in MTG, and the most expensive. It is essentially a free counterspell. The drawback is much too low for a free counter to anything. I personally think the card needs a serious reprint and that its pals Contagion and Bounty of the Hunt are underrated.

Pact of Negation is interesting. While costing much more than a normal Cancel, both in terms of mana and in terms of money, it can be played when all your lands are tapped. Plus, with Hive Mind you can boot any non blue players. Slaughter Pact has the same problem, but is less evil. A cool card but also kind of niche.

Finally, Mana Drain. I live this card. It allows you to make crazy plays early on without having your own mana. Absolutely terrible in Vintage, but in Commander it has a lot of value. There isn't a whole lot to say about this card, but it is my second favorite on the list and the one I deem to be second most powerful.


My favorites:

  1. Swan Song

  2. Mana Drain

  3. Void Shatter

  4. Pact of Negation

  5. Force of Will

Power Level (Least to Most)

  1. Void Shatter

  2. Swan Song

  3. Pact of Negation

  4. Mana Drain

  5. Force of Will
