Scattering Stroke


Counter target spell. Clash with an opponent. If you win, at the beginning of your next main phase, you may add (X) to your mana pool, where X is that spell's converted mana cost. (Each clashing player reveals the top card of his or her library, then puts that card on the top or bottom. A player wins if his or her card had a higher converted mana cost.)

Considering adding Scattering Stroke, Mystical Tutor, Rite of Replication and Stolen Goods. Other than that, By George I think I've Got it.

Any Clash cards like Scattering Stroke work well with topdeck. Future Sight, too. (And Telepathy evens the odds, although it's unrelated to your question.)

Pieguy396 on Merieke Goes to Value Town-Help Make Better

I'd get rid of Daxos of Meletis, Scattering Stroke, and Perilous Vault.

Daxos gives you value, sure, but he's definitely better in a voltron deck or a deck designed to make specific use of his exile effect.

Scattering Stroke isn't that great of a counterspell, it's a 4-mana Cancel with no upside a lot of the time, and occasionally adding mana to your mana pool isn't worth leaving up 4 mana for a not-so-good counterspell.

Perilous Vault is a board wipe, sure, but both and have much better board wipes that you can use. 9 mana is a lot.

Hope this helps!

If you want to try throwing in some clashes, then maybe add a Scattering Stroke or two. Maybe a Deep-Sea Kraken to make them pay for being fast. This is still an awesome deck!
