Split second (As long as this spell is on the stack, players can't play spells or activated abilities that aren't mana abilities.)

Counter target activated or triggered ability. If a permanent's ability is countered this way, activated abilities of that permanent can't be played this turn. (Mana abilities can't be targeted.)

Ripklawe Trickbind is strickly a meta play on my end, it could 100% be subbed out. Manifold Key will make it's way in, I'll update the list once I pick up the card.

Hello nice deck, i really like Lingering Souls here. My suggestion is to cut Countersquall Essence Flux Trickbind as well as 3x Rattlechains and put 3x Inquisition of Kozilek and 3x Thoughtseize .

I might agree with Manifold Key being better than Voltaic Key but I think Trickbind having split second still makes it favorable over Tale's End . Although, I guess that the ability to hit legendary spells IS very good.

Oooffft Nice version!

How has Manifold Insights and Recurring Insight been working out for you? and I feel like Trickbind might be a bit too narrow don't you think could add more bounce for the combo turn cursed totem removal?

And I see you've been plagued by our "pro's" amongst the casuals jaymc1130 and Skillville, a VERY sad bunch of casuals xD Anyhow good list!

Kcucullen - To be honest, I wouldn't run Tabernacle as it's counter productive in this deck. The Construct + Urza (requiring tapping down for 2 each turn). I've got a very similar but more streamlined Urza build listed here w/o Tabby: Urza Feeling Lucky - cEDH Primer #1 Mono Blue

My suggestion for the OP is to cut the following:

A few suggestions on cards to include:

P.S. Something to add you your "win lines" Muddle the Mixture + Rings of Brighthearth : Copy Muddle the Mixture 's transmute ability and search for Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter or Grim Monolith + Power Artifact.

Yesterday on Which cards allow you to ...

So I was reading about special actions as a side-note of trying to explain Split second cards like Trickbind . One of the special actions caught my interest:

115.2c Some effects allow a player to take an action at a later time, usually to end a continuous effect or to stop a delayed triggered ability from triggering. Doing so is a special action. A player can take such an action any time they have priority, unless that effect specifies another timing restriction, for as long as the effect allows it.

The only card I can think of that does something like this is Sabertooth Cobra , am I right in that? If so, what are some examples of other cards that allow you to take this action? I don't have a clue how I'd look something like that up on Gatherer.

There are a couple cards that completely stop opponents from using creature-based activated abilities: Cursed Totem , Damping Matrix , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , and Voidstone Gargoyle

Phyrexian Revoker and Sorcerous Spyglass allow you to stop Mairsil without targeting it, so it bypasses flicker mechanics.

Suppression Field taxes the activated abilities, making them harder to use.

Trickbind is another counter that has the added benefit of Split Second, and could be worth including.

You could use removal with split second to kill Mairsil without it being able to flicker in response: Molten Disaster , Sudden Death , Take Possession , Wipe Away .

Sudden Spoiling neuters Mairsil for the turn.
