Psychic Strike Discussion

I'd recommend Hedron Crab over Angler Drake

Traumatize is always a fun card to play

If you wanna throw in black you could run Psychic Drain, Glimpse the Unthinkable, and Psychic Strike, Perplex is fun, albeit situational

Hope this helps!

Psychic Strike is a counterspell that also makes your opponent mill. Same thing with Countermand. You can capitalize on Oona's faerie production with Dire Undercurrents Hope this helps!

Fraying Sanity will make your mill much more viable. Psychic Strike or Induce Paranoia make good counters in a UB mill deck as well.

Are only two curses enough to win? I think you might need more mill support:

How about Psychic Strike, Broken Ambitions, Countermand, Induce Paranoia as counter spells that also mill

Grisly Spectacle as a kill mill spell

Pilfered Plans, Thought Scour as draw and mill

Returned Reveler, Returned Centaur, Vedalken Entrancer as mill creatures with larger toughnesses

square711 I am positive I have 3 or 4 Psychic Strike and Mana Leak somewhere. What would you suggest I replace Liliana and Ooana with? Spell Snare isn't outside the budget range I have in mind so I could probably pick up 2 at least in the next couple week, at the soonest. I don't personally like the idea of using Remand only because I don't want to have deal with the spell I counter later.

Cancel is a terrible card even in a budget deck. Every other 3-mana counterspell is strictly better than it (Dissipate, Dissolve, Disallow, Hinder, Psychic Strike), and you should be playing only 1/2-mana counterspells anyway (Remand and Spell Snare may be a bit too expensive for your deck, but Mana Leak is pretty cheap).

And you really shouldn't play 5- and 6-mana cards in a deck that has only 22 lands, some of which ETB tapped. Decks that want to hit every land drop in the first 5 or 6 turns need to play 24-26 lands (but honestly, I think you should just drop Liliana and Oona and add more removal in their place. They're too weak for their mana cost)

xander11 I think you underestimate Clutch of the Undercity. I added it for it's limited 4mana-Tutor effect in first place. The secondary bounce effect is just a nice addition. Same goes for Muddle the Mixture and Perplex.

Induce Paranoia and Psychic Strike are way better then Counterspell since they support the Mill Strategy immensely.
