Stoic Rebuttal Discussion

Falcon_Galeo on Padeem's Artifact Menagerie

what is the point in playing cards like Assert Authority and Stoic Rebuttal, when you havent got cards like Counterspell and Disallow, the only point in playing Stoic Rebuttal is as a second Counterspell, dont play it over Counterspell just because of the synergy.

I would also recommend including more mana rocks and the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo

4 ofs, always 4 ofs, don't play 3 on the land front.

Fling is eh, you aren't one shotting people. 4 Galvanic Blast seems ideal. Lightning Strike is either worse than blast or worse than lightning bolt. Revolutionary Rebuff doesn't fit, or can be something like Spell Pierce. The pay off for Stoic Rebuttal is your Cancel becomes Counterspell, but given you've put this in legacy why not just play the Counterspell.

Have you considered some 0 cost equipment artifacts?
Spidersilk Net is one I run in my similar deck (not listed) as it adds toughness to your creatures, since they are so weak to begin with. And can be ensouled after a boardwipe since they'll remain.

Since you'll have no problem getting out artifacts, have you considered Stoic Rebuttal? It'll be a harder counter over Mana Leak?

To make this deck levels better, Fabricate and Thoughtcast for card advantage, Path to Exile or Fatal Push for removal, Marsh Flats, Flooded Strand, and Polluted Delta for a bit of land advantage, and Watery Grave, Hallowed Fountain, and Godless Shrine for a serious land base.

Switch Paradise Plume for the signets:

For planeswalkers:

The best counterspell for this deck is Stoic Rebuttal, and another fun choice is Render Silent, or Dromar's Charm.

With charms come Esper Charm, the best of the best, and if you need mana, Silver Myr, Gold Myr, Leaden Myr, or Palladium Myr are all great choices in artifacts.

Under Tribal for artifacts you have:

Other than that, maybe Academy Ruins?

I am a bit burnt out now, let me know if I helped out!

your english is not bad! i forgot about Detention Sphere that is a really good one. Stoic Rebuttal is also good in an artifact heavy deck.

Hey, great deck! The idea is really fun and I like the stall game you're going for. Just a few suggestions:

  • Try and go for consistency a little more. I see a lot of x3 and x1, maybe try and make a few x4 instead? This will increase that chance that you'll get something you want when you want it.
  • Because you're planning on having a lot of artifacts out, Stoic Rebuttal might be better for you than Mana Leak.
  • If Kuldotha Forgemaster is the only way you're planning on putting out Darksteel Colossus (and you're not too worried about a budget), you might consider cheating out Blightsteel Colossus instead.
  • If you're playing with this deck at any sort of event, you're going to need a sideboard (up to 15 cards you can sub into your main deck between the two or three games in a match). The sideboard generally consists of cards that specifically hate on deck archetypes that you know will be at the event. Alternatively, you could also fill it with cards that counter cards your opponent might try and sub in against you.
  • If you ever consider splashing white, Declaration in Stone might be useful to you. It can get rid of the opponent's beatstick or it can sometimes give yourself a bunch of clues for the win. Bygone Bishop and Expose Evil could also be things to consider if you go that route.
Hopefully some of those suggestions prove to be useful. I look forwards to seeing your continued work on this cool deck!

Hi cool deck, if your budget permits I would streamline your permission suite into the following:

Generally you want to keep your permission as low cmc as possible to be able to more effectively leave the least mana open to protect your board.

Recurring Nightmare is on the official banlist, by the way.

In EDH, you want to try to get as much value as you can from each spell. Or in a couple of cases, there is a better card out there than what you are using. As such, I would replace these with the following:

  1. Stoic Rebuttal >> Counterspell
  2. Smelt >> Vandalblast, Shattering Spree, or By Force
  3. Murder >> Hero's Downfall
  4. Cannibalize >> Malicious Affliction

I have a monoblack zombie deck and a couple of cards that are always amazing in there are Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Fleshbag Marauder, Cemetery Reaper, Undead Warchief, and Lord of the Undead.

You may want to consider adding more ramp to the deck, as right now you have a lot of high cost spells. The first step I would do is to add the different signets for your colors (i.e. Rakdos Signet). Other mana rocks that you might consider include Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, and Chromatic Lantern.

I hope some of that helped.
