Overwhelming Denial Discussion

Joker4242 on Island Secrets

I'm looking to make this deck more effective. I played a Modern tournament recently and found that most people who were playing with blue used Force of Negation . They sometimes had a whole playset going. Other decks I had trouble against were fast Red/Blue Delver of Secrets  Flip decks. This made it difficult to get certain combos running. Many of my own counterspells were ineffective against Force of Negation . So I started looking into counterspells that could not be countered, like Overwhelming Denial , and other cards that make all of my instants and sorceries uncounterable, Sphinx of the Final Word (a bit too expensive though) and Boseiju, Who Shelters All . My thinking is that with the tree most of my important spells would be protected. My issue is that it would drain me of life quite quickly, so Prism Ring was also an idea (the problem with the ring is that it has no form of protection for itself, plus I want most of my spells to give me multiple options). Supreme Will was a card I was seriously considering. Not only would Kefnet reduce its cost, it essentially has the same ability as Narset (possibly 1 mana to choose a card from the top 4 cards of your library is a good deal). Another reason I thought about Supreme Will is because 2 of its mana are colorless. This means that I could use the tree for my sell. Cards like Archmage's Charm cost three blue so there is no way to make it uncounterable with the tree. Surgical Extraction was a card that I thought would be hugely beneficial against annoying counterspells like Force of Negation . Even though I myself have a Force of Negation , I wanted my deck to have the last word in countering spells. the idea was for this deck to be a counter deck that cannot be countered.

It would be appreciated if to be given some ideas for cards that might come in handy against such threats. I'm mostly looking for sideboard cards as not all I play agasint will be counter decks.

Wolfpig I had Plasm Capture and Spell Swindle in but took them out for Overwhelming Denial and Last Word . I love the mana you get from those 2 because you can dump it into an X draw spell..... any suggestions on what to remove to fit them in? Not trying to reduce any of the Nope cards. Perhaps... ramp? 2 islands? o.O

LiquidGaming You had mentioned removal/bounce in response to the Jace activation as being bad news, so what are your thoughts on more free counters like Pact of Negation or Disrupting Shoal ? Or even uncounterable counters like Overwhelming Denial ?

I can't quite figure out what your Protean Hulk line is, but maybe I'm just missing it.

Sinister Sabotage and Unwind both seem quite weak at 3 mana, especially considering the amount of lands you play that come in tapped. Maybe some combination of Delay , Remand , or Unsubstantiate . If you're looking for hard counters, Void Shatter I would put above Sinister Sabotage. Unwind might be fine for that purpose, but I'd weigh it vs the pros and cons of Overwhelming Denial .

I really like Wilderness Reclamation here. Big brain plays.

Deck played pretty good. Achieved a strong board state consistently and within turn 4-5. Was able to combo off and win with infinite turns twice.

Wanted to try without Abzan Falconer and Tuskguard Captain but they are now back in.

Added more protection in the form of Last Word and Overwhelming Denial both of which can't be countered.

Wanted to have longer games but one of our group players decided he was going to try out his Breya with 30+ win cons by turn 4-6. Still deck did what I expected it do and now just finding ways to improve it's protection.

Motys on Yennett All Odds, No Evens

So first iteration of my yenett deck was put to the test. 3 games, 3 wins. Worth mentioning i'm playing only in paper and that our LGS is small and deck are rather casual (i believe strongest decks are like 6/10 in term of power). We tend to play long games. My build runs 38 lands (21 basics, 1 fetch), and 10 even cards. Cannot provide decklist yet. My build isn't very focused on single target removal. Thou i need to add some removal for enchantments/artifacts. No Future Sight, Sensei, Soothsaying. Rise of the Dark Realms, Anguished Unmaking i have in other decks.

Even cards are : Strionic Resonator (damn this one is strong), Swiftfoot Boots , some 2cmc mana rocks, Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Smothering Tithe (Can this get ban already?), Overwhelming Denial .

Since this is "casual", only wheel effect im running along this Smothering Tithe is Dark Deal .

Liliana Vess performed really well. I don't have Animatou. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is probably fine addition to the deck. Dream Cache is probably better than Frantic Search? Living Death is too risky in my opinion.

To protect myself and yenett i'm running packet of : Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Sphere of Safety , Shielded by Faith , Karmic Justice , Bastion Protector

Ethersworn Adjudicator was really good in my games.

Counterspell package: Stubborn Denial , Disallow , Overwhelming Denial .

Fun's over pack : Time Warp , Temporal Mastery

Examples of odd cards im running: Herald of Leshrac , Artisan of Kozilek , Brilliant Ultimatum , Pathrazer of Ulamog , Blatant Thievery , Void Winnower , Inkwell Leviathan , Mind's Dilation , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Platinum Angel , Angelic Arbiter

If You want to improve Yenett and make deck real nasty , extra turn spells are probably way to go (Nexus of Fate might be really strong). Old Ulamog and New Emrakul are also Odd cards. Magister Sphinx , Enigma Sphinx , Mother of Runes , Iona, Approach of the Second Sun can also be very good.

Hope this helps a little and i'll see another Yenett video on the channel :D
