Niblis of Frost Discussion

ericchen2003 on I won the spelling bee 777 times !

Consuming Aberration, Evacuation, Pyre Hound, and Niblis of Frost would be a great cards also. It would be better if it had a cool winning condition. Perhaps increasing a creatures power by casting spells and then fling it (I'm obsessed with Fling, this isn't the best combo).

If you can make room, Niblis of Frost may be a nice sideboard to help tap guys down.

@sylvannos, thank you so much for taking the time to give me such detailed and thoughtful feedback! I have made a few adjustments as a result, based on the cards that I have on hand and how much I am willing to overhaul the deck without playing more. I definitely need some Detention Spheres and Glacial Fortress. I don't have Logic Knot I don't think, I'll have to check. I put in Countervailing Winds as a sub which is pretty similar. I replaced Niblis of Frost with Venser, Shaper Savant and shuffled around some of my counters. I also ordered some Disenchants based in part on a previous comment. Do you think I need four Serum Visions and four Opt? That's a lot of card draw and they aren't that different. Also, I have a bunch of Repeal. What do you think of that as a counterspell?

I'd cut each the following:

-1x Tablet of the Guilds (lifegain on its own is generally terrible)
-3x Prison Term (there's a lot of better options))
-1x Wall of Denial (again, better options are out there)
-1x Angel of Invention (doesn't dodge Lightning Bolt and you're not playing a lot of creatures. It's mana cost is too high to justify playing a creature without flash)
-1x Niblis of Frost (It dodges Fatal Push and Abrupt Decay, but not Lightning Bolt)
-3x Render Silent (there are cheaper Counterspells. 3 mana is a lot)
-1x AEtherling (you don't need a lot of win conditions)
-1x Azorius Guildmage (we need some room)
-2x Negate (again, need more room for some other stuff)

I'd add:

+1x Opt (you want 4 copies)
+2x Detention Sphere (general purpose removeal)
+2x Mana Leak (low mana Counterspell)
+1x Dispel (this is fills a role similar to Negate, except it costs less mana)
+1x Elspeth, Sun's Champion (this is the type of win condition you're probably looking for)
+1x Condemn (Death's Shadow really doesn't like this card)
+1x Logic Knot (it's a hard counter that's excellent to have later in the game)
+4x Spreading Seas (some decks simply won't be able to cast spells at all if you play this, especially Tron)
+1x Venser, Shaper Savant (this should just be in your main)

For your sideboard, I'd do:

1x Blessed Alliance (good catch-all card to handle a variety of decks)
1x Supreme Verdict (against Aggro, you'll want more sweepers)
2x Blind Obedience (this is a good choice against burn and you're already playing them)
2x Disenchant (you need instant speed artifact/enchantment removal)
2x Relic of Progenitus (graveyard hate)
1x Essence Scatter (good choice)
2x Negate (these are the ones that were main but get moved to the side. You bring them in against combo and control)
1x Dispel (against some decks you'll want 2, namely control decks)
1x Celestial Purge (beats Zoo, Burn, and Rock strategies)
2x Ceremonious Rejection (helps against Tron and Affinity)

After that, the main things you'll want are Cryptic Command, Snapcaster Mage, Celestial Colonnade, and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip (which you know). On the cheaper end of things, look to getting 3x more Serum Visions, Search for Azcanta  Flip, Jace, Architect of Thought, Stony Silence, Rest in Peace, Mindbreak Trap, and Wall of Omens.

You'll also want to improve your mana base, as that's probably the most important part of a control deck. Once you have 4x Flooded Strands, 4x Hallowed Fountain, and 4x Glacial Fortress, you can add in more utility lands, such as Field of Ruin and Ghost Quarter. Seachrome Coast is another great option.

I'd cut Evolving Wilds from your deck right away and add in 3x Plains and 1x Island. Port Town and Temple of Enlightenment are okay to have, but look to replace those with Glacial Fortress or the other lands I mentioned. You really don't want lands that always come into play tapped that aren't manlands. Otherwise, you'll die when you can't cast Supreme Verdict on turn 4 or Dispel + Negate on turn 3 when you're going second against burn.

U/W Control

Classic U/W Control, counter things, exile things, etc. More info on the deck under comments. I'm a new player so I greatly appreciate insight from seasoned vets, especially other pilots of U/W Control. :)

Edit: Thank you all for your feedback! I changed the deck quite a bit. I still need help with:

Win cons: Currently my major win cons are the two Aetherlings, but I know there is a lot more I could play with.

Mana base: I can't afford Celestial Colonnade yet, besides that how else do you think I could improve my mana base?

Creatures: Should I cut more creatures out for more counters? More cantrips?

Cantrips: Do I need both Opt and Serum Visions? What about Sleight of Hand?

Counters: Besides the obvious Cryptic Command, any idea how I could improve my counter base?

Enchantments: Detention Sphere or Ixalan's Binding?

If any of you need help as well, I would be nore than happy to provide it! :) Happy holidays!

Thoughts on Recent Additions

Docent of Perfection-this card is so much worse than metallurgic summonings why cant you see this

Goblin Electromancer- dual color requirements and unimpressive body makes this worse than curious homunculus, speaking of which,

Curious Homunculus- Better than I thought it was going to be, Voracious Reader  Flip is a good beater/blocker and 4 toughness + prowess makes it hard to remove with burn

Niblis of Frost/Talrand, Sky Summoner- I never found myself wanting to cast these cards. 4 mana is a lot of investment into something that will just eat a removal spell

Thing in the Ice  Flip- Not quite as good as I had imagined it being, but I think it still merits a slot due to its ability to take over a board if left unchecked

As Foretold- this card is bonkers, its so good

Sphinx's Tutelage- Also I'm not as high on this card anymore, there are a lot of matchups where it will just help the opponent

Abrade- very good, all star card

Insidious Will/Rewind- Agreed that 4 mana is too much for these counterspells.

Misdirection- This is much less good than Force of Will.

Pongify/Rapid Hybridization- I cut one of these for an option that had some card advantage/manipulation

Gamble- Went down the gamble. The addition of Rise from the Tides means that Personal Tutor is more likely what we want in the deck

Self imposed $50 total budget spellslinger/Salvaging Station deck. I really like where the deck is right now but am always open for suggestions. If anyone knows cards similar to Niblis of Frost that protect me for casting spells I love to hear it! Also any good 1 drop or less non-creature artifacts I missed for Salvaging station.

Thanks!!
