Kogarashi on Questions about the stack

  1. Bloodbraid Elf remains on the stack until the card you cascade into is resolved (at the very least), so you can still counter it once you know what card is being cascaded into.

  2. If Scavenging Ooze's ability is being activated in response to Kolaghan's Command, then it will resolve first and exile Snapcaster Mage before the Command is able to return it to your hand. However, a spell only "fizzles" when all of its targets become invalid. The other mode you chose for Kolaghan's Command still has a valid target, so that part still resolves. The part returning Snapcaster to your hand is simply ignored.

  3. The cost of Bedlam Reveler is paid when it's put on the stack, before priority is passed, including all cost-adjusting effects. Using Nihil Spellbomb to exile the Reveler's controller's graveyard won't change its cost after the fact, so Bedlam Reveler still resolves and enters the battlefield.

ParadoxicalSlacker on Questions about the stack

I have a few questions regarding the stack, I have these instances come up in my games.

Example 1: I have Logic Knot in my hand and my opponent casts Bloodbraid Elf and the card they cascade is Tarmogoyf. Can I counter Bloodbraid Elf after they announce what card they cascaded to or is it too late?

Example 2: My opponent plays Scavenging Ooze, I have Snapcaster Mage in my graveyard and I cast Kolaghan's Command to return Snapcaster Mage to my hand and deal 2 damage to Scavenging Ooze, they respond with the creature's exile ability. Is the creature exiled or put into my hand? And if it's exiled is Kolaghan's Command countered or will it still deal 2 damage and resolve?

Example 3: I have Nihil Spellbomb on the battlefield, my opponent has 6 instants/soceries in their graveyard and casts Bedlam Reveler, I respond by using Nihil Spellbomb ability, now Bedlam Reveler costs 6RR and he doesn't have enough mana. Does Bedlam Reveler still resolve and enter the battlefield? If not, is it countered?

Thank you for your help!

Also instead of two [Gurmag Angler] and two Relic of Progenitus in the side I would put two Nihil Spellbomb and one Dross Golem or Wall of Tanglecord (For blocking your opponents Gurmag Anglers or other big things) or Gravepurge or another piece of hate such as Doom Blade, Disfigure, Terror or Murder.

lagotripha Thanks a lot for the suggestions!

I will consider adding a couple of Memory Plunder in the sb since it can be very useful against certain control decks, but it's very specific and can be a dead card very often. I will try it out and let the card speak for itself.

Ravenous Trap seem less versatile than Nihil Spellbomb since the artifact can be played as early as turn one and sit on the table until you need it. It also has the ability to cycle itself so I feel like its way more versatile and suitable for this deck than the trap.

Also you can add in Dispeller's Capsule and Nihil Spellbomb and Myr Servitor if you want.

Generally, its a set of 1CMC sideboard answers as 1-ofs (in the maindeck), things like Nihil Spellbomb, Pithing Needle or Golden Urn alongside Artificer's Intuition and Trash for Treasure. It lets you reliably throw out relevant speedbump cards and put big stuff (and dead cards) in the graveyard. Used to run it back with Sundering Titan a long while ago- might be some old primers around for the more casual mirrodin lists that people were tweaking.

lagotripha Thanks for that many options and your thoughts.

Lingering Souls is a good one I didn't realise earlier. I prefer Rakdos Charm and Nihil Spellbomb over Rest in Peace, as it would kill my own graveyard.
