Also Glaring Spotlight , General's Kabuto and Veilstone Amulet .

And for redirecting cards there is also Shunt , as well as the more situational Reroute and Ricochet Trap .

Let's consider throwing Ricochet Trap back in for the surprise anti-counter.

Ragnar0k on Purphoros, God of the Tokens [cEDH PRIMER]

Hey, I like the idea of this list; but have a lot of problems with how it runs and it being considered cEDH., and the primer as a whole. First of all, your opening spoiler is inaccurate. The average cEDH mana curve does not sit at 2.8-3.5. That is completely ridiculous. On average, a cEDH deck sits around 1.7-2.3, and 2.3 is even a bit high. Second of all, you don't run infinite mana combos, which make your X spells like Firecat Blitz shine. Third, your board interaction and stax pieces are too few and far between. Stranglehold and your land destruction/hate pieces are nice, but Cursed Totem , Grafdigger's Cage , Chalice of the Void , Ricochet Trap , Shattering Spree , Thunderclap , and Mogg Salvage would further improve the stax and interaction of the deck greatly. The three large downsides of mono-red are lack of access to tutors, interaction, and sufficient ramp. That's why you should look to amp both of those up as much as possible, and once you've reached the proverbial ceiling, acknowledge red can only do much on its own, and hunker down into stax. You most likely won't end up being the fastest deck at the table with these changes, but you will be able to slow down others' decks with T1, 2, and 3 stax pieces to the point where you're a contender.

No auto-includes thus far, but Emergency Zone and Karn, the Great Creator seem viable. Bolt Bend is cute, but Ricochet Trap would be put in first. There are not many single target abilities that I see needing the redirect.

very cool brew im a huge fan of Skred Red and its variants. Im sure your well aware of Scrying Sheets but and i can see how Sarkhan, Fireblood kinda acts as a combo of sheets&koth when it comes to the dragon theme here; but it could still be good to have as a 1 of in here... other than that Relic of Progenitus is a good Gravyard hate for this shell and another piece of Sideboard tech that can come in handy in some matchups is Ricochet Trap . You can change the target of Cancel to target Ricochet trap itself or to steel an opponents Ancestral Vision .

Why don't you run more anti-blue (or anti-combo disruption in general) spells such as Reverberate or Ricochet Trap ? They're great if a player is waiting to counter your big X-spell, as despite typically costing far more than a blue counterspell, you'll also have tons of mana if you didn't dump it all into X.

Thank you for making this write-up, by the way. My Neheb list was greatly influenced by yours, although it's a little slower/more casual. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/neheb-overheating/

Possibility Storm and Ricochet Trap look like good cards to slot in for Godo.

There are 2+ drop counter spells as well in mono-red -




Ricochet Trap

They're high mana cost, though, so I don't know how practical they will be to run.
