Trickbind Discussion

usaDiabetic on IntruZur Alarm | Zur EDH

sweet build friend,

some quick suggestions(sorry if I make any repeats, there are a lot of comments already haha) Austere Command as a "catch all" sweeper. Similar idea with Merciless Eviction.

For board protection I love Teferi's Protection and Trickbind.

For some mana fixing River of Tears and Path of Ancestry .

General Zur utility Reconnaissance to get his attack trigger without risking him dying in combat. Similar idea with Rogue's Passage.

Like I said, sweet build, welcome to TappedOut, and I wish you many games of combo'ing off!!! :o)

Yay for control!

Absorb, Angelic Renewal, Dovescape, Hindering Light, Offering to Asha, Mana Maze, Mark of Asylum, Overrule, Propaganda, Silence, Swift Silence, Trickbind, and War Tax might complement your game plan.

Have fun brewing!

Poprox on Turn 2-4 Consistent Win

Trickbind is a cool and effective card, but the reason I run so many counter spells is to protect my combos. I recently cut Mindbreak Trap for the same reason. I can usually combo off faster than Prosh decks so it's not a persistent threat. If Prosh or other creature heavy/aggro decks are in your play group, Toxic Deluge and Damnation are great substitutes. But anyways, Trickbind just isn't needed enough to be a mainboard card.

I love Abeyance. Have you ever tested with Trickbind as a back-up or additional piece of prevention for other early game combos (like, say, in a Prossh deck)?

Happy playing!

Icbrgr, Entrei
Mirror Sheen, Reverberate and the like don't work against storm.

Storm as an ability does the following:
1# It places a single copy of the original spell on the stack
2# THEN it places a triggered ability (as its casted, not on resolution) on the stack - this triggered ability creates all those many copies of the storm spell.
3# Then the triggered ability resolves, then the lot of freshly created copies resolve, and then the original resolves.

As such any effect that can interact with abilities is able to catch storm, be it "exile the stack" effects, like Summary Dismissal, Glorious End, Time Stop, and stuff that can counter abilties like Summary Dismissal, Voidslime, Nimble Obstructionist, Trickbind.

However these spell are only buying you time, they are not the same as casting Rakdos Charm against Splinter Twin, or Commandeer against Karn Liberated.

However if there would be a way to gain control of or create a copy (you own) of the storm trigger(ed ability), then your copies would enter the stack later, and resolve first, hopefully killing the storm player, if the storm count is high enough.

Besides that, stifle effects like Nimble Obstructionist or Disallow will stop the trigger on the stack; Trickbind work perfectly and prevent them from negating the counterspell. Summary Dismissal is a single color overloaded Counterflux.

Purely for fun, I wonder if you've tested with Unexpected Results or if you've played with Trickbind or Voidslime as Stifle effects.

Have fun brewing!

I love the Voltron pieces here. Have you tested Traveler's Cloak or Whispersilk Cloak yet?

Boomerang might be cool - it's a UU Vapor Snag that hits any permanent instead of pinging for 1 life. Likewise, Trickbind might be cool in this deck. It counters an ability and prevents the same ability from being activated or triggered again this turn.

Sun Titan might work well with Brago, King Eternal to return a fair number of your auras, creatures, or equipment cards to the battlefield should you lose them.

Have fun playing!
