Rebuff the Wicked Discussion

hkhssweiss on Oh, You Wanted to Play Magic?

Yo Jayd0nlink, first thing I would recommend would be to cut down the amount of high CMC cost spells. I would also run a lot more interaction magic such as Remand , Silence , Delay , Capsize , and stax type cards that would prevent them from playing more cards. Some cards that come to mind are Aven Mindcensor and the likes.

I would also use cards like Paradox Haze to get more use out of Sen Triplets when she is on the battlefield. Rebuff the Wicked and Imp's Mischief are alternative cheap ways to protect your commander.

There are a lot of ways to synergize your commander with the playstyle you want to do. However big drop spells should be the first thing to do, after that you will need mana accelerators as well as protection spells, before using utility spells to get rid of cards you wouldn't like to deal with.

Feel free to ask for more help as I did play Sen for quite a bit!

For your wife's avacyn deck, I would consider running Faith's Reward , Rebuff the Wicked , as well as Lapse of Certainty . Also Sun Titan would be nice for recursion synergies with Aura of Silence, Grasp of Fate, O-Ring and such. I am also a fan of Sublime Archangel , but that's going into angel tribal lol.

Hmm Austere Command would be helpful as well, as the modular choices gives you options to work with. Tragic Arrogance is another one where it can reset the board as it makes people sacrifice instead of destroy, which gets around some clauses. Sword of the Animist is good for the consistent ramp. Since your not running any planeswalkers, The Immortal Sun is a great source for cost reduction, buff, as well as card draw.

For tech hate you can run Blind Obedience or Ashes of the Abhorrent if you want to run them, even Grafdigger's Cage as well if you play against those types of decks as well. Authority of the Consuls if you going against more of the going wide strategies.

Hope that helps for your wife's deck!

@iAzire: Hmmm... Alright. Dunno how useful Mana Tithe will be though; I mean, the mana cost to negate it seems too easy to pay either. Besides, the initial 5 card pile seems to be mostly Permanents anyway. I also added a new restriction to the combo to combat decks that force exiling as a terminal replacement for the Grave; essentially negating any card of the 5 card Pile. But, I'd also like an opinion on Mana Tithe though. How much of the time does it even work w/o anyone paying even Colorless? this might be a problem on its own, & not all targets that either Red Elemental Blast , nor even Pyroblast (I prefer the latter anyway as the choice isn't as forced.) can beat have anyway. Which would mean the other 4 would have to be Perms unless ol' Tithe paid in Blood & Guts can work here.

But the situation stands; I'd still want suggestions for parts of a pile that bypass the need for a grave for reasons above; & if one doesn't remember: these are the reasons: Planar Void , Rest in Peace , & even Leyline of the Void . I was liking the idea for Felidar Guardian , & Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , but what other two, besides the protection in question yet again, would be used? & if all 4 cards are Permanents, why shouldn't the 5th be Rebuff the Wicked ? Oh, wait: It doesn't help to counter spells your opponents might cast to counter your spells. So why Mana Tithe ? I'm discombobulated anyway... >.<

Not Rebuff the Wicked because that only works for spells that target a permanent you control. It doesn't help to counter spells your opponents might cast to counter your spells.

Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast can counter the most common counterspells because most of them are Blue. If you're stuck on using White, Mana Tithe will tend to be more useful than Rebuff the Wicked.

@SynergyBuild: Apologies about this; just forgot the situation when cards like Planar Void , Rest in Peace , & even Leyline of the Void are in play. Didn't want to disappoint in such a short notice, but I suppose you have other ideas? Also, why not Rebuff the Wicked ? Aside from Faithless Looting (Which is practically out.), the rest are permanents at least...

I recommend another one drop creature; Expedition Envoy , Stoneforge Acolyte , Savannah Lions , Elvish Mystic , Llanowar Elves , Sunblade Elf , Something like these would work great in this deck, I also recommend some green or white removal to stay alive till you get wide. Mana Tithe , Rebuff the Wicked , Path to Exile And If you want to keep it at 20 lands, I recommend you add in some land ramp; Harvest Season , Traverse the Ulvenwald Besides that, it looks like a fun deck. And if you want to play it like that, it would probably do pretty good for a FNM, at least from the ones ive been too. And like I said there are more cards out there that accomplish the same things.

A Suns_Champion...How did I forget about Silence ! I use that in my competitive decks LOL

Omg those janky spells, I love those spells, now I have to see what I can fit it in, Rebuff the Wicked might be better in the slot albeit, but I love those ideas you are suggesting, I am definitely going to pick those up! Thank you very much! :)))
