Insidious Will Discussion

Darkshadow327 on Sphinx-Zombie-Wizard Tribal - Yennett

If you want to get cards you want to pull off the Arcane Adaptation + Rooftop Storm combo then I suggest tutors. Some noteworthy ones are Enlightened Tutor, Vampiric Tutor (I know it's expensive, but if you are able to get one it would be good), Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, and Rune-Scarred Demon are ones I can think of off the top of my head.

Only one Counterspell?! You should be ashamed. Some of my favorites I have found are Insidious Will, Disallow, Desertion (kinda fits the "steal" theme), Render Silent, and Mana Drain (if you are willing to pay for it).

You could also take advantage of the graveyard with The Scarab God, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Debtors' Knell, Rise of the Dark Realms, Thrilling Encore, Sepulchral Primordial, and Diluvian Primordial.

I know a lot of these are expensive, but I went with themes I was seeing are cards I think should be in here. Also, most of these are odd cmc so they can be cast off of Yennett, which is a plus.

Blasphemous Act, Rapid Hybridization, and AEtherspouts can be good to control the board.

I've noticed some counterspells, and I've found that Insidious Will, Disallow, and Counterflux are some of my favorites.

Saheeli Rai can tutor at ult, while also dealing damage and moving cards you don't want out of the way as you + her. Also, Tezzeret, Artifice Master produces tokens (which you want), draws cards (yes please!), and his emblem is just game breaking ridiculous.

I've always thought Merfolk Looter was over looked in control/tempo builds Supreme Will is pretty solid too. What's the direction you want to take this deck. You just want to see all the second choice control options?? AEtherling is a good finisherInsidious Will is a good counter

Don't worry, Rowan is gone now. In her place is some pillow fort elements. And Lord Windgrace. My question, if you finally calmed from the calamity of the past is; do you think either is necessary? Otherwise, I'll get rid of them & take it from there. If Windgrace is garbage too, I'll replace Forbid w/ Insidious Will for more modes.

If you have time, if at all, what would you suggest? I'm actually working on a third project already regarding Aminatou, the Fateshifter. Not Topdeck based, but complete Stax/Lockdown/Hatebears/Cruel Control.

@Low-key_loki Thanks for the +1! I can see what you are saying in terms of being susceptive to board wipes. Saddly though I don't know many cards that will protect a creature from them. Flickerform is a great way to prevent targeted removal and there are a lot of flicker effects in the deck. Since a flickered creature is considered a new one anything that targeted the original won't effect the new one. One game I had. I had to dead-eye navigator 4 times to protect him but I was able to manage it. I don't run any counterspells simply due to the fact that if I cascade into it then I am forced to counter my own spell. The only one I would consider addin in is Insidious Will as I can maybe copy a cascaded instant/sorcery but even that isn't overly beneficial. I trgularirly play against a mono black kill everything deck but it hasn't been able to keep up with the amount of time I am able to bring out Ramos so I don't need to overly worry about being hated out by one person. The best part of this build are with cards like Seedborn Muse and Leyline of Anticipation, nothing more satisfying than playing 4-5 hands worth of cards on your opponents end step and swinging away with an unblockable/untargeted insta-death Ramos from all the +1/+1 counters on him.

Darkshadow327 on The Apocalypse has Begun!!! (EDH Tribal Series #3)

I don't actually like Liliana, Untouched By Death she's just kind of a meh Planeswalker.

Aetherflux Reservoir is more for a dedicated lifegain deck, I'll think about it though.

I do have counterspells bud, I never make a blue deck without at least 2 counters (blue is my fav after all). Render Silent and Insidious Will are some of my favorites. A bit off topic, but funny story about Insidious Will. The last time I tested this deck an opponent was playing some red burn and totally loaded up a Banefire at my face. So I cast Insidious Will and he was like "Dude, X is over 5, it can't be countered". So I was like "I'm not countering it, I'm changing the target to you". Man was that a feel good moment, for me anyway.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand.

You underestimate the tap lands. Arcane Sanctum is good color fixing for me, and the Temples are always a nice drop. I never feel bad if I can Scry.

Darkshadow327 on The Goat Man and a Fish, Two Peas in a Pod

I'm just gonna pretend I know what Kiki Pod is (I have no idea, I just play casual modern with my friends with the cards I have). Anywho, I'll give it a shot.

If you want more counterspells then Render Silent, Insidious Will, and Plasm Capture are some fun ones.

If you want indestructible then Avacyn, Angel of Hope is good. Heliod, God of the Sun is good if you want vigilance.

And last, but definitly not least, Frozen AEther a funny card that can seriously piss people off.

I seriously had no idea what to suggest, so I just spouted stuff off off of the top of my head based on what I saw. (I think I have an idea what Kiki Pod is now and it's. . . Interesting)
