Time Stop Discussion

I do a similar thing with Elite Arcanist and Time Stop whenever someone draws my ire. Then I end their turn during their upkeep, so they don't even get to draw.

My first suggestion would be to just stop playing with him altogether until he agrees to stop playing that deck.

Aside from that, Grafdigger's Cage, Eidolon of Rhetoric, Stonehorn Dignitary, any instant speed removal, Time Stop effects, anything with split second Krosan Grip for example.

Maybe Kaervek the Merciless, Tsabo Tavoc or Ruric Thar, the Unbowed to really discourage the storm.

Instant speed tutors as well, to get some anti-storm creatures, like Planar Portal, Planar Bridge, Corpse Harvester (with Quicksilver Amulet, or Cryptic Gateway), or Chord of Calling.

My apologies. To look more closely at your current build, I was thinking that the double damage from Insult would be better for you than either the exiling removal of Oblivion Strike or have it come in as a 2 of with 2 copies of Murder coming out.

Glorious End also seemed like something to test out over the Oblivion Strike at least due to my own fascination with it being a red Time Stop.

In truth I see that your deck wants to be fairly reactive to what the opponent is playing, and if you ran Insult you'd need to be able to cast it for 3 and then also be able to cast several other cards and/or have multiple creatures out with prowess. A board state that I think we can agree you won't have often enough to warrant using it. Plus you seem to prefer direct life loss over damage.

I do feel like you could use some card draw though and Succumb to Temptation feels like a good choice being instant speed and you don't lose cards to play it like Cathartic Reunion. However I'm not sure where to make the cut unless you took out some removal.

In that note I would really ask why Oblivion Strike is in the mainboard. I understand how it is non-restrictive removal, but isn't it a little costly to be using for standard play?

With Angel's Grace wouldn't your life total continue to drop below 1 because you aren't taking damage, but losing life? I know it still works because of the "you can't lose the game" part. It seems fun but all it would take would be an end turn card to kill you at that point. I would be very upset if my opponent's Time Stop or other disruption turned into a one card win-con.

umm, youve got a blue card in there. Time Stop cant have that.

Time Stop is a stand-in for the new red card Glorious End:

On a different topic!

Dear friends - I need to brainstorm ways to shut down a Leovold, Emissary of Trest deck in mono-red. There are too many Leovolds in my meta, and they need to be taken down a notch by a $25 budget deck.

Assume I don't care about winning, just making the Leovold player ragequit.

Combust, Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, Null Brooch, the new Time Stop...what else am I missing?

(Tagging n0bunga and Lilbrudder for their experience playing Leovold.)
