Stifle Discussion

DemonDragonJ on Core 2020 spoiler thread

In today's spoilers, thunderkin awakener, tale's end, and brought back all caught my attention; the awakener will be insane with Ball Lightning , Spark Elemental , and Lightning Skelemental , and tale's end is a nice compromise between Stifle and Disallow .

Love the deck! Been looking into legacy recently and your deck is by far #1 on my list so far. Question for you though. I see the graveyard hate already in the sideboard, but what is your opinion on Stifle for people who side in Emrakul, the Aeons Torn or are playing them in the mainboard? Is it too niche of a card in the first place? Would love to hear your thought on this.

Just as a precaution to misplays and better understandings of card interactions, does Summary Dismissal do the same thing (not literally) in the case of unearth that a Stifle would?

zrob: I've been devoting more time to my The Dark Tower: Circu Citadel cEDH recently, haha (I'd love your thoughts). But I'll eventually make it back to working on Locust God, I promise! ;)

Your points are valid, and I'll tweak. This modification was mostly a first pass.

(Nothing more hilarious than Stifle on a T1 fetch, though. Heh.)

Daedalus19876: Thank you for putting this together.

I see you are also in favor of cutting Izzet Charm and Stifle . I pretty much agree on that, and will probably doing that myself shortly. I haven't used Stifle in the past 15 games I draw it and it sits pretty dead.

I'm surprised you cut Counterspell for something like Delay , do you find it to be too color intensive? I rank Counterspell above it in terms of things I'd personally include, especially since we have a lot of access to blue mana in this deck, and it's only a two color deck.

Another card I would put over Red Elemental Blast maybe is Gamble , though it's meta dependent if you're running into a lot of blue players. I think we have just enough interaction to deal with them though, so we don't need both Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast . Gamble is a decent tutor that usually gets us what we want.

You could probably cut Spell Pierce instead as well for Gamble . I would maybe add Mental Misstep over this, though it is pretty narrow.

I'm probably going to be adding Blood Moon to the deck. A few times when someone else has played it, it hasn't really disrupted me, and it absolutely destroys more complex mana bases. I've cut the number of mountains I run to 3 (as we have 3 fetches that can only get mountains), and I run 8 islands to ensure I don't get hosed by it myself. I am just figuring out what to cut for it.

Thanks for pointing out Volcanic Fallout , if I get around to testing Pyroclasm I will try that as well.

And yeah, I'm working on getting a Volcanic Island ...eventually. I've paused my spending on MtG at the moment haha.

Rhadamanthus on Redirct and Phantasms

For the benefit of anyone else who comes across this later looking for an answer:

The Phantasmal Bear will still be sacrificed. Once it becomes the target of a spell, its ability triggers and is put onto the stack. Changing the target of the spell to something other than the Bear won't back up the game and "un-trigger" the ability. The ability will still resolve unless something else specifically counters it ( Stifle , etc.).

Have you considered making room for Fork , Reverberate , and Increasing Vengeance ? You are already running Ral, Storm Conduit .

You are also running Splinter Twin , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , and Twinflame so could think of including Teferi's Realm . Idk if keeping spare tokens after phasing out after combat is too cute, but it does keep things off the board to sorcery speed removal as well. Finally, maybe include a Stifle or similar effect. Nothing better than blanking an opponents fetch, or and this is real spicy hitting the storm trigger that adds the copies to the stack. Combo taps out to tendrils you and you just get drained by the one copy. I don’t think it’s so low in utility that this scenario is Christmas land. Nothing there that will break the budget too badly.
