Kira, Great Glass-Spinner Discussion

Firebones675 on Cheap Illusions

CIPT stands for Comes Into Play Tapped. Generally CIPT have some sort of added bonus to make you want to play them over a basic land, but the problem with them is if you have a hand with too many it can slow you down. Provided you only have a few it's usually not too much of an issue. The issue with depths is that yes you can rearrange the top of your deck but you can't put them to the bottom so if there are cards you don't want, you're going to have to draw them at some point. Personally i wouldn't play the full set, maybe only 2 copies, but that's also largely because you have a lot of cheap spells you want to get out quickly. Having a CIPT land can slow you down by a turn or prevent you from casting a creature and still being able to hold up a counter compared to a normal island.

As for something to protect lord, the first things that come to mind Kira, Great Glass-Spinner and Spellskite are unfortunately pretty pricey. Swiftfoot Boots/Lightning Greaves aren't ideal but if there is some sort of board sweeper like Wrath of God, you get to keep the equipment in play to equip to another one. If it's removal specifically you are worried about Misdirection might be an option but i'm less certain about that recommendation.

As for other cards to put in the sideboard, it depends on what kind of decks you think you will run into. I'll list some here, but if there is a specific deck in mind and you want to know what types of cards are good i can try to suggest a few cards. Usually I like 2-3 sideboard cards for each type of deck i think I might play against unless it's a matchup I think i won't be able to win unless I have more ways to disrupt them.

If you think you will be against a lot of counterspells, Dispel is a nice option.

For token decks or decks that make a lot of creatures quickly, Engulf the Shore

against graveyard: Relic of Progenitus, Grafdigger's Cage, or Tormod's Crypt,

Artifact based decks: Hurkyl's Recall

Echoing Truth is a nice catch-all to hit things that vapor snag can't

Figure of Destiny is brilliant! Too bad it would work well with my deck that wants Tallowisp triggers. I'd suggest one more Drogskol Captain and a Kira, Great Glass-Spinner to ensure that protection is all. +1

bushido_man96 I think im to close to this lol, any cards you see as usless? I really wanna try and get in Concordant Crossroads, Nylea, God of the Hunt and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner while Garruk Wildspeaker & Deadeye Navigator have the luxury bonus'

Pheardemons tnx for the comment :)

i think Whiskerbro ment that you said that Sliver Overlord is also good to add, but its already in there :)

I never thougt of the combo with Dormant Sliver and Intruder Alarm etc, i will try it out.

My only concern is Crystalline Sliver when its on the battlefield i cant target my own slivers anymore,because they have shroud en no hexproof.Thats why i added Kira, Great Glass-Spinner

Im going to addTunnel Visionbecause thats just bad ass haha

the thing i use is Sliver Overlord + Amoeboid Changeling to put my opponents creatures under my controll, or take controll then use Necrotic Sliver sac it en destroy another creature :)

ill take a look at your deck and i might have some tips:)

Things to consider for UW (not added, lets discuss):

Some notes:

Do we include sigets? I think it might be a good idea.

Hey, I just wanted to give my two cents.

I think you can get more out of Sphere of Safety than you would Norn's Annex especially if your opponent is playing white.

If you run Kira, Great Glass-Spinner (I know she's kinda pricey) you can safely drop Mana Leak.

If you wanted to be that jerk that locks out a game you can also run Isochron Scepter and pair it with Silence.

The last two cards I would consider (Although a bit pricey) would be Spellskite to redirect their targets and Grand Abolisher to stop them from trying to counter your spells or play combat tricks when you attack.

I've been looking to make a similar type of deck and I like the framework you've put together. +1

Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Kira, Great Glass-SpinnerMight be nice additions to this and since you are playing mono blue Back to Basics could be an annoying addition for anyone not playing mono.

Okay, so what is your meta like that makes you want to run so may exiling counterspells? Are there really that many graveyard based decks or are there others like token aggro or storm?

Without knowing that I wouldn't suggest anything except maybe to look into non-spell effects that can counter spells like Declaration of Naught and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner if you haven't done so already. I'm not sure where cuts could be made, again, without knowing your meta and therefore what the weakest part of your deck might be against that group.

Also do you currently have any kind of budget concerns for the deck?
