I've been thinking about this problem...I think that the issue lies in the fact that there are different types of extra cost abilities...allow me to explain...

  1. "The mana cost of spells and abilities you control can’t change." counters Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, but not Leonin Arbiter or Mana Tithe.

  2. "If a spell or ability an opponent controls would cause you to pay any amount of mana, you instead pay ." counters Mana Tithe, but not Thalia, Guardian of Thraben or Leonin Arbiter.

  3. ": Add . Spend this mana only on effects you don't control." counters Mana Tithe and Leonin Arbiter but not Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (and has potential issues in Modern).

The closest I think we can get to the desired effect is by combining effects 1 and 3, and trying to make combos with it unplayable in modern. Mostly, it can't be 2CMC, otherwise we could use Muddle the Mixture to find missing combo pieces and a finisher, and protect the combo. It also can't be colorless, otherwise Tron decks risk having sideboards that are too good.

As far as Legacy, I see no issues with this countering Minds Aglow(and similar cards), since that card would need to be cast by an opponent, unless someone used Hive Mind(or Harmless Offering. In that case, it's a 3-card combo and I don't care.

plasmor99 I don't know if this deck suffers from a lack of enchantments as they are over >20% of my non-land cards. I'd love to have Moat but that is way, way out of my budget. I'll probably never own a copy. If anything I'd have to go with the baby Magus of the Moat. Thank you for the critique of my deck it has made it a lot more sustainable in the late game. The first card that I notice is under performing is getting replaced with Mana Tithe.

TheRedGoat I don't mind being a prison deck with life gain shenanigans I think that'd be pretty sweet. We're lacking a control player in our meta. Evra, Halcyon Witness would be crazy good. I'll have to figure out what to take out and maybe put in some stuff like Rogue's Passage. Commander damage isn't "rare" but most people rely upon comboing out. Congregate was added because of the prevalence of tokens in my meta.

If you're interested in angels, spirits and taxing your opponent, Archangel of Tithes and Windborn Muse both seem like a good fit. You could also run Mana Tithe to target a mana-strapped opponent.

Neat deck. Have you ever tested out Mana Tithe? It catches people off guard a lot of the time and it's pretty sweet when it works. Idk if you're planning on playing competitively with this, but Deflecting Palm is good sb tech against Death's Shadow.

Solid deck, there arent any glaring mistakes that I can see besides maybe the low land count. Have you ever played around with Mana Tithe? It sometimes works pretty well as a "gotcha" spell and it's always really satisfying when you counter something with it. I always try to stick it in any non-blue white decks that I play, it's super underwhelming a lot of the time but it's fun.

Also, have you tried going for land destruction with Boom and Flagstones of Trokair? Those types of RW decks are pretty neat, in my opinion.

K1ngMars fair enough, it's fun to me to run but I can see how having a goofy Labrador isn't as fun as a trained attack dog. I just so happen to have a Teferi's Protection laying around I'll give it a try.

mindness that's a great idea! Thanks for the idea. I'll be happily abusing it in the future. Storm Herd outta no where! What! lol

plasmor99 Hmm, the deck is pretty tight, what do you suggest removing for Mana Tithe and Rebuff the Wicked? I could run Diamond Valley with my MTGO version but it's a bit out of my price range for paper. Thank you for the great suggestions!

Well Mana Tithe didn't break modern in half. Its so rarely played mst people don't even realize it exists.

It has seen some play in orzhov Smallpox variants, that splash white for Lingering Souls, the card is great there since the deck is continually mana screwing the opponent, hence paying more for spells is hard.
