Nevermore to keep the ad nauseum decks from casting Thassa's Oracle or Lightning Storm.

Ninokun, you got ninja'd. See my card above.


Current challenge:

If Lightning Storm was part of a cycle, make another card in the cycle (white, blue, black, and green remain)

Edit to Hebron, Commander of Armies: First ability should read "~ and other Human creatures you control get +1/+1 for each Human you control.

NinjaReaper90: I would totally flash in a Vela the Night-Clad in response to a Worldfire ...

Since you're looking at a card which causes something to happen in the middle of another effect, I would recommend having a bit of a look at Panglacial Wurm which might help smooth out some wording. though I would be careful about cards which manipulate the stack other than just removing cards from it (which are your counterspells).

Alternatively, your spell could give the target card hexproof (or a hexproof like effect) and make it uncounterable while it's on the stack. I mean Lightning Storm is an instant with an activated ability and counters on in after all.

This isn't guaranteed uncounterable, since both Mindbreak Trap and Time Stop are cards, however it would be pretty darn close.

Funkydiscogod I see what you mean. I was under the impression that they would have multiple copies of their win condition's. I did some research and found they only have one copy of Laboratory Maniac and Lightning Storm

Lordoflard The good news is that you don't have to cast it for its kicker cost, you can just play it normally and it'll exile three cards from the opponent's library: you'll want to exile their Laboratory Maniac and their Lightning Storm , and any one other card. You can easily make space in your deck by removing Infinite Obliteration , which can only exile one of those targets.

Obviously, Sadistic Sacrament is the superior choice, because they can still combo off after an Infinite Obliteration by using a win condition you didn't name.
