Strionic Resonator Discussion

Hmm, so if the magus are too slow, etb should definitely be the focus
Is that more what you meant?

The_Grape I know Strionic Resonator isn't expensive, I actually ordered it yesterday and am just waiting for it to arrive. the same goes for Reality Acid and Cloudblazer. as for the other card you suggested, it appears to have not come in so I'm not sure what it was. Thanks for the suggestions!

Well, unfortunately it's not a replacement. I wouldn't play it in an aggro deck but rather in control. I mean cataclysm works also good in control if you build around it but in aggro the best mass removals are land removals. If you aren't allowed to play that in your group you should probably replace your mass removal slots with even more aggro.
If you have problems in being the first and worst threat on the table, you probably need to reconsider your choice of creatures, ramp and pump spells.
Having played several games on Xmage with Arahbo today I can tell you a bit about what I felt were the game winners so far. Puresteel Paladin and Bloodforged Battle-Axe is absolutely ridiculous - it wasn't removed for very few turns and the paladin drew half of my deck! Elspeth, Knight-Errant is also a killer because of the additional boost and evasion, Umezawa's Jitte is deadly with the Hungry Lynx and also with Duelist's Heritage, Strionic Resonator won a game because it can copy so many important triggers for example eminence...on the other hand I wasn't impressed by Balan, mostly because I never got enough equipment to give him double strike, also Loxodon Warhammer did nothing in most games because it's too mana intensive. I even hesitated often enough when the choice was between playing swords other than fire and ice and something else...often these swords were held back in favor of other spells. Maybe this changes when I can test Nazahn and his hammer but the hammer hasn't worked online yet. Sigarda's Aid isn't worth the slot as a replacement, just not good enough.
Hope this helps in tuning your deck, although my build is made for much faster play with very few late game bombs.

Doubling SeasonPrimal Vigor and Strionic Resonator are all going to make thing get out of control quickly in the game. Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine would be good. i def. agree that Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice is a must and with green you need to take advantage of your mana ramp. how about the vivid lands they come with counters and would help fix your mana. Teferi, Temporal Archmage for card draw and for certain on his final ability, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, and Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Ajani Steadfast, Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated. should be in there. i do agree with multimedia on what to take out except for kiora thats a solid planeswalker some more card draw would be good also. and some protection for atraxa like Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots. here is how i built mine it's not super friends but it should give you some ideas. HydrAtraxa

Hi Azergyzhoul. The deck hinges around a variety of creature ETB value + flicker/blink effects to control or lock out the table until you frustrate your opponents to death. I typically tutor for whatever ETB trigger I need - ramp, removal, protection etc. There's not much more to it than that, but here's a few interactions that come to mind...
It would take a while to go over budget options, simply look at the cards that are here and think of a cheaper card that will provide a similar effect. A lot of the $ value is in the land base, so you could chop the cost by running cheaper land alternatives. If there's a card replacement or two in particular that you're struggling with, let me know and I can help you out.

_Knight_ my dude, Strionic Resonator is not too expensive, and with the mana rocks you have, you can easily go infinite. Since you want this to be mid power, maybe consider []? It has a high mana cost, but that can help draw you cards with Rush of Knowledge. Also, I suggest that you drop Well of Ideas and add Cloudblazer and Reality Acid.

You're correct on both counts.
Because Quarantine Field enters with counters on it, cards that double counters on enchantments will apply. If you declare X=5 (costs are based on the value you declare for X, not the other way around), those 5 counters will be doubled to 10 as Quarantine Field enters the battlefield.
Strionic Resonator can be used to copy the exile trigger (note that the first ability, which puts counters on Quarantine Field is a static ability and therefore can't be copied) and exile another set of permanents.
Note also that the second ability checks the number of counters on Quarantine Field as the ability resolves, meaning you can use activated abilities and spells in response to the ETB trigger to modify the number of counters on Quarantine Field and therefore the number of permanents you exile.

I few questions about this interaction Quarantine Field has counters on it that a lot of people over look. The card could have been a a rare but it's a mythic rare because of the counters that make more great interactions that make this card great and a mythic rare. Now tell me if I'm wrong. If im right just say so and if im missing any other interactions just let me know. Now if Doubling Season is in play (or any other card like it) when I cast Quarantine Field for say 10 XX, it would enter the battlefield with 5 counters on it, exiling 5 nonland and things but with Doubling Season it will enter with 10 counters. If this interaction is correct then it would exile 10 nonland things instead. I'm pretty sure that works but I could be wrong. But what about Strionic Resonator could I pay the 2 and tap it to copy the ETB trigger to exile double the amount. Does this work and how many counters do i get plus what other cards work like this with Quarantine Field?
