Psionic Blast Discussion

N4kk1 on U/W Control

At first, Psionic Blast? Just no. And Mana Tithe is not good enough for control decks.

Go up to 4 Mana Leaks, card is great.

If you have the coin Cryptic Command is must.

More duo lands in form of Glacial Fortress/Seachrome Coast could be good. And again Celestial Colonnade is must have if you can afford it.

I have to say that Modern is not good format for new player as you have to know what your opponent is doing to play right. But everyones gotta start somewhere.

Also control deck doesn't need this many creatures. I would creatures to 6. Like 4 Snapcaster Mages and few Spell Queller or maybe Torrential Gearhulks. Those other creatures are more like sideboard cards. Celestial Colonnade is very good finisher so not that many creatures is needed.

Good draws!

This is fun indeed (I did play this combo in real tournaments but in Standard)

The problem of modern environment is that it is full of fetchlands, and therefore they may "adjust" their lives, which is a problem with both trisk and the rite.

I think that in modern it is safer to double the Trisk / tree combo with any card that makes the tree lower in toughness, say Ovinize or Turn to Frog and some Collective Brutality or even Psionic Blast :p

You can do this in response to a fetch' too (this is soooo fun).

You just oneshot yourself my dear. Yes, you were at 20.

Yes, but I would put only two Psionic Blast and I wolud keep two Remand because it costs 1 less and it makes you draw a card

I haven't worked on this deck too much yet but you are totally right, especially since skitter is a 1/4. also thinking about taking out remand for Psionic Blast. What do you think?

King of the Luxa

Legendary Crocodile

King of the Luxa has protection from creatures that have one or more -1/-1 counters.

King of the Luxa may can't have -1/-1 counters put on it.

"The pharaoh rules over the lands, but the King of the Luxa rules over the river."


This is a series of challenges.

A sorcery for each color that is against what that color normally does, but still thematically fits. (think back to the original Psionic Blast Direct damage in blue)

SaberTech on Why is Blue the Color ...

7 months ago

In the early days of MtG, Blue also didn't get much in terms of efficient creatures because it was supposed to put more emphasis on instants and sorceries to manage the board. Usually it tried to stall the game on the ground and then win in the air with flying creatures. Blue could bounce creatures, but aside from odd cards like Psionic Blast it couldn't kill them directly if they got past blue's counterspells. Having cards that let Blue steal opponent's creatures became an alternate solution, with Control Magic being the signature card for that effect.

As another flavour point, Blue's emphasis on gathering knowledge to advance its plans means that it is the colour that most often ends up messing with the nature of magic itself. That's the explanation for why it has access to counterspells that prevent the magic of spells from resolving. That also means that it's the colour most likely to tweak magic to its own benefit, such as taking control of the magic that summoned and controls a creature.

Curse of the Bloody Tome does literally nothing if you want to win with direct damage.

Spell Pierces, Spell Snares or Dispels would do more. Even Vapor Snags would be better, even though they don't deal damage.Oh and there's also Psionic Blast...
