Trickbind Discussion

KIRK77 on What's good for bad

4 days ago

Haha, yeah that'd be sweet! Infinite Reflection is a fun enabler for sure. It would shut down zedruu from giving it away, which is why it didn't survive some of my first cuts. The only cards to give it away are Donate, Trickbind, and Puca's Mischief. My tutor's for those pieces would be Wild Research and Gamble. I hadn't really even thought of giving away Infinite Reflection at instant speed to catch someone on an ETB effect in response to playing a creature. I was able to get off the Rogue Skycaptain + Infinite Reflection + Harmless Offering last night, but a big part of that was that I was drawing 14 cards a turn by the end with Zedruu

hey Regoober, say my opponent has their commander out. If I Mirrorweave the Crimson Honor Guard would they still be dealt damage by it since they have one of those instead of their commander or is it the cards physical presence on the table that counts?

Fleetwood-Mat on Fleet's Faeries

1 week ago

Updated to now have 1 Liliana of the Veil moved from side to main board, trimmed some previous redundant win cons and util faeries, added 1 Jace, the Mind Sculptor for combo of util/wincon value, also added 2 Fatal Push and one Trickbind (2 in side board too).

These changes can help be more relevant in the current meta

Atrabilogie on {U/W} Control

Also, I doubt that this could be an option but I know an interesting card that can synergise well with this deck.

Momentary Blink

It can be used to trigger Torrential Gearhulk and Reflector Mage abilities.

This Momentary Blink can actually be a counterspell through Torrential Gearhulk, if you choose Unwind or Rewind, it actually untaps more lands than you've used. That's very helpful to cast a full powered Sphinx's Revelation at your opponent's endphase.

I'm new here so let me just relink you correctly my decklist :

3 Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir

1 Skeletal Vampire

1 Dralnu, Lich Lord

2 Dreadship Reef

1 Underground River

3 Dimir Aqueduct

9 Island

2 Swamp

3 Desert

3 Drowned Catacomb

4 Rune Snag

3 Spell Snare

4 Rewind

4 Think Twice

4 Mystical Teachings

1 Seize the Soul

3 Mana Leak

1 Cancel

4 Repeal

1 Cremate

1 Last Gasp

1 Sudden Death


3 Persecute

4 Deathmark

1 Slay

1 Seize the Soul

1 Trickbind

2 Moonlight Bargain

1 Spell Snare

1 Dreadship Reef

1 Darkblast

Things I added :


Hero's Downfall

Wrexial, the Risen Deep (not very strong but cool card)

Venser, Shaper Savant

Tyrant-Thanatos on Glorious End + Reroute?

1 month ago

No. Glorious End has a delayed triggered ability, not an activated ability. Secondly, none of Glorious End's effects target anything, thus it does not have a single target. Both of these things make it an invalid target for Reroute.

In order to stop Glorious End's delayed triggered ability from causing you to lose the game, you'd need something like the following: Stifle, Trickbind, Disallow, or Sundial of the Infinite. With all of these, you would play them during the end step of your turn, while Glorious End's delayed triggered ability is on the stack.

Pheardemons on Blue Tron Scrimage

2 months ago

I believe the reason a lot of people are saying Mindbreak Trap (aside from the fact that it costs 0 mana eventually), is that double blue tends to be a little difficult for blue tron. You run 8 sources, and I'm sure you've been in the situation of holding cards back just to counter something because you have to choose between the two. Mindbreak Trap allows you to stop something for free, AND hold up counters, or cast for free if needed. I completely understand that Summary Dismissal is better overall for stopping Emrakul, the Aeons Torn because it will also stop the extra turn trigger. However, Mindbreak Trap tends to be better in the meta we're in with Gifts Storm running about. Not to mention, a free counter if you get into a counter war with another control player.

I noticed something that wasn't in your sideboard, Trickbind. You seem to be worried about so many triggered abilities, so here is a card you should look into and playtest. I know that adding in both is more slots, but since you're considered 4 Summary Dismissals maybe do a split of 2/2 here. That's what I have in my deck. Trickbind hits ALL of the same cards that Summary Dismissal can hit, except of course Emrakul, the Aeons Torn which will resolve, but your opponent won't get another turn. If Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is truly that prevalent and is constantly cast that much in your meta, by all means keep Summary Dismissal, but some food for thought. I just wanted to lay out some reasons as to why people keep recommending one card over what you're playing. Of course, above all, play with what you like. It is more important.

Neotrup on Imprinting and split second: questions

2 months ago

Well, yes, Trickbind can counter Stratus Dancer's ability, and Stratus Dancer's ability can counter Trickbind, just depends which one is responding to which, just like how Counterspell can counter Counterspell.

Creatures can be sacrificed with split second on the stack, just not as part of the cost for casting a spell or activating a nonmana ability. For instance, if a player has Ashnod's Altar, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Mystic Snake with no +1/+1 counters on it, they could sacrifice the Mystic Snake for , triggering undying to return the Mystic Snake, triggering it's enter the battlefield ability to counter Trickbind.

Upyron on Imprinting and split second: questions

wow so no one can sacrifice creature, when split second is in a stack... is OP.Trickbind can counter Stratus Dancer when is turned face up because " Trickbind, it would stop everything after the word "When", "Whenever", or "At"(not for mana ability)." thus making it.

THANKS goblins you're awful <3

Neotrup on Imprinting and split second: questions

Cursecatcher's ability is not a mana ability, because it (most importantly) cannot add mana to a player's mana pool. It also targets, which a mana ability cannot do.

Stratus Dancer's triggered ability could counter Trickbind, because morph is a special action and thus is not stopped by split second, and triggered abilities still trigger with a split second spell on the stack.
