Stoic Rebuttal Discussion

DanowarElf on Locust God is bigger than a 4/4 or izzet just me?

shub Both are great suggestions! Thanks. These explanations are not meant to prove you wrong; but rather they are my personal reasons of why these cards didn't make the cut.

Goblin Bombardment (GB) seems like a great card on paper for this deck and I have always been on the fence about it. I've tried it several times in the past in this list, but nine times out of ten at 2 CMC it just ended up being a mediocre version of Impact Tremors/Throne of the God-Pharaoh, or a mediocre Lightning Greaves/Swiftfoot Boots. I found that if I wanted to use GB for damage, Tremors/Throne/Purphoros, God of the Forge deal and spread more damage as they hit each opponent evenly. And by giving LG hexproof or shroud I avoid having to recast him. 6 mana is a major setback and I try to avoid paying it at all costs. I do run High Market and Despotic Scepter as incidental sac outlets, but I'd rather protect LG with countermagic and equipment if possible.

Ashnod's Altar is an intentional omission as it combos infinitely with Skullclamp and that's not what I'm trying to do here. The fact that it is a mana-making sac outlet it great, but in the end I just don't need it. Clamp is crazy enough as is haha!

The artifact lands serve two minor purposes without taking up extra card slots. First of all, they help reach metalcraft for Stoic Rebuttal to turn it into another Counterspell. Second, they turn Trinket Mage into a Borderland Ranger if needed. So far I haven't had artifact removal ever hurt me because of the artifact lands. I do my best to keep up countermagic for things like Vandalblast because that hurts a lot!

Thanks for your input. I might consider running Goblin Bombardment again in the future. :)

What about Metallic Rebuke in some conjunction or in place of Stoic Rebuttal ? In modern if games are not going long (which often they do, sometimes they don't) being able to get the counter out earlier with improvise could be nice.

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?
