NimbusNobody on Card creation challenge

Soul-Taker Sphere

Artifact

Whenever a player casts a creature spell, counter it unless they pay .

Some spheres pull in all directions.


Inspired by Remove Soul and the lookalikes, Sphere of Resistance and the lookalikes, and all the Force Spike -types.


I'm super hyped for War of the Spark, so design one of the following(or both on the same card, if you want a challenge!)

  • What you think the scrapped Skirmish mechanic mentioned by MaRo in would be like, or

  • A card designed to work with Armies without mentioning Amass or +1/+1 counters.

Wall of Deceit is a 2 Mana 5/5 that draws a card as it enters. That is really good. It doesn't really need an additional effect. The only other 2cmc wall that is able to compete at this cost is Thing in the Ice  Flip, as a simple scyfall search can show. Thing in the Ice  Flip might be an interesting experiment, but I can't really tell without knowing the meta if you even want the flip effect and if you can control when it happens enough.

Silence is really bad in commander, if you don't plan to win this turn, but I agree, even in creature heavy metas Remove Soul is suboptimal. I would always run Arcane Denial over it and looking at how much blue you have maybe Force of Will .

Also Aura Shards is broken as hell and should be in every deck that has the colors and plays creatures. I would slimply cut a land to play it, at 2.22 average cmc you can easily run 34 Lands.

Also Fetchlands would be great, to make sure you get your dual lands more often, which you will need to reliably play your commander. If you can afford it, run all 9 that hit a color of yours. E.g. Arid Mesa hit's only one of your colors, but can get Hallowed Fountain or Temple Garden so basically any fetchland gets you any color you need. Besides Bloodstained Mire , don't run that one xD

Dusk sucks because it kills the commander, which should always be out if possible, but Slaughter the Strong surely is awesome in here. However it doesn't kill an army of 1/1s so it's not better than Wave of Reckoning , but you could run it over Fell the Mighty if you feel that the cheaper cost is better than the choices you get.

Your argument with Bant Charm putting commander at the bottom of someone's library is actually outdated because now "Replacement effect" is a thing and every time Commander tries to change zones it can be put into command zone instead.

But still taking out combo piece or huge beater with Trample or Infect is value. I might try it in my deck anyway.

Also how about Silence ? It's actually a little better than Remove Soul - you cast Silence at the beginning of someone's upkeep so they actually have to respond with counterspell or they're stuck with draw-land-pass turn

Thanks for the ideas Feyamius.

I have play tested most of what you have suggested. Especially the Gateway Plaza,Rupture Spire and the Transguild Promenade. I have found that these lands slow the deck down quite a bit. This is the reason I run the Shimmering Grotto and the Unknown Shores and also the Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds package. Most of the lands (Gates) enter tapped. The Spire, Promenade and the Plaza enter tapped as well and require you to set yourself back even further on top of that by having to pay to keep it in play. They are no good early game. Late game, they can help but by then you should have yourself set up and not need them quite as much.

The Opal Palace and Path of Ancestry will eventually be in here. I don't have extras for this deck yet.

I have played Crop Rotation in the deck. I took it out to add the Search for Tomorrow. I found that it was more times a dead card. I went for ramp instead. I will likely try to add more ramp in the future. It's extremely important to make the land drops and also to get a head of your opponent as this deck plays as a control deck 99% of the time.

Encrust and Arrest have been solid most of the time. They fit the deck quite well. I'm happy with them. With Unmake, The cost is hard to come up with in a 5 color deck.

Soul Manipulation will go in for Remove Soul. Surprised I overlooked that.

As far as adding a Displace. I've thought about it. Although I have shot myself down due to the Drift of Phantasms I play which can be used to search for it (Like running 2 copies) and also running the Izzet Chronarch and Mnemonic Wall the Ghostly Flicker gets recycled and abused. I see no need to add a second flicker effect spell.

The utility lands other than Bojuka Bog don't net me enough benefit to run them. Halimar Depths and Mortuary Mire are the only other two I'd consider.

Thanks for the input. Much appreciated!!!

I've done my research in form of a list in my deck's description here: Impenetrable Shield. My deck has a little lower mana curve but works very similarly to yours :)
Also what are your thoughts on Wall of Shards and Wall of Mulch? I play both in mine deck one as a strong beater with little downside and the other as steady card draw for each turn with Wall of Kelp but it sometimes works as combo extender or emergency draw in case someone tries to exile my defenders or take control of them.
And finally I'd consider swapping less optimal cards like Remove Soul and Steadfastness for Heroic Intervention and Lightning Greaves because Arcades is the most important card in the deck and should be protected by any means

Sure thing. Sorry that took a while:

Out:

In:

Mana base(33 is enough at this average cmc):

That's what I'd do and then playtest it and go tweaking. Hope that helps and also that it wasn't too brutal. For real tweaking please add a list of decks you play against or how a normal game looks like(amount of combo decks, creature decks, control decks per game). You do run lot's of creature spot removal, but I let that in, since you might need it.

You are correct. "Casting" is a game action that takes a card from your hand and moves it to the stack, where it becomes a spell. In this case it's a creature spell, but it's still a spell. See for example: Remove Soul.

If however your friend put their creature onto the battlefield without "casting" it (for instance, with Quicksilver Amulet) then it wouldn't be a spell, it goes straight from their hand to the battlefield as the ability putting it there resolves.

I think I need to update the description to explain why i have so many 1 mana artifacts. It's for Salvaging Station, which has quickly turned into my primary wincon. Pyrite Spellbomb is a lot better when it can handle all the creatures with toughness 2 or less by itself (depending on my amount of mana), it can also take down one creature with toughness 4 or less by sac'ing to do two, salvaging station taps to bring it back, then sac to deal 2 more. Between Pyrite Spellbomb handling the small creatures and Aether Spellbomb handling the big ones i have a lot of control.

Universal Solvent is mostly there as a catch all answer. oh big planeswalker when i have no pressure or crazy enchantment nonsense, or silly artifact it all falls to the often unassuming universal solvent lol. It's also a cheap artifact for Jori En to get value out of it, value going in and out.

I think that Comet Storm is just a straight better card than Jaya's Immolating Inferno. Instant, no restrictions about legends, hits more things.

Cyclonic Rift isn't included because i can't fit it in a $50 budget. Wash Out is my budget substitute.

I don't think Hypersonic Dragon is necessary, I have 6 sorceries in the deck. It'd be nice obviously to cast them at instant speed but I'm not sure adding an enabler to do so is worth it.

I think that if i ran a combo, and one of the pieces was 2 CMC, I'd run Muddle the Mixture. As a counterspell, i like my counterspells to interact with everything. So no Negates or Remove Souls. The only exception I've made is to Disdainful Stroke because commander is a format where folks play big game winning spells and i want to stop that nonsense :)

I really appreciate you spending some time looking at my list, if you have a deck you'd like me to look at I'm more than happy to derpytrollerZ
