Unsubstantiate Discussion

Kross33 on i hate all of you

Dumb question, but is it possible to loop a spell with just one Bonus Round activation if you let the copy of the intended spell you want to loop resolve,then have the original Unsubstantiate bounce it and the copy return Unsub back to your hand?

Hi, is it possible to loop a spell with Unsubstantiate after only one Bonus Round activation if you have the original Unsub target the original spell you want to resolve and have the copy target Unsub? Sorry if that's hard to follow lol

Drop them all for more efficient answers like Swan Song , Spell Pierce , Swords to Plowshares , Stifle , Force of Will , Pact of Negation , Delay , Mana Leak , Arcane Denial , Chain of Vapor , Unsubstantiate , etc. Prolly drop all removal 3+ unless it is very, very efficient ( Grasp of Fate in a Zur list, that is tutorable and hits 3 nonlands with exile).

you should consider Unsubstantiate , Venser, Shaper Savant and maybe Delay , they might work well with exhaustion and knowledge pool. also Spell Queller could be a nice gotcha card.

Cryptic Command feels pretty out of place in a tempo deck; maybe Unsubstantiate ? Skred could also be a consideration over Roast , depending on your meta -- or, just move Roast to the SB, since it can often be a dead draw. Burst Lightning or similar might be a reasonable consideration.

One other possibility; Mission Briefing over Snappy-Do. Pros and cons; Briefing flips Delver, but Snap has the body. Snap is probably better overall, but it's a consideration.

SB ideas: Magma Spray , Anger of the Gods or Pyroclasm , Echoing Truth , Shattering Spree or Abrade /etc, Alpine Moon , Relic of Progenitus / Tormod's Crypt /etc, Dispel , Negate

Looks fun. Cheers!

For cheap counterspells that aren't listed in your maybe board you can use Dispel , Rebuff the Wicked , Turn Aside , Unsubstantiate , Spell Pierce . Negate , Arcane Denial , Countersquall , and Imp's Mischief .

For Esper colors, there isn't much you can do for fast ramp aside from relying on faster lower costed mana rocks to makes it go faster. The other alternative route to this is going for a cost reducer route like using cards like Helm of Awakening , Jhoira's Familiar , Baral, Chief of Compliance , Cloud Key , Etherium Sculptor , Foundry Inspector , Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , and The Immortal Sun .

Hope that helps!
