War's Toll Discussion

Grand Abolisher or Conqueror's Flail could also really help with your counter spell situation, or War's Toll can restrict opponent's available mana for counterspells. Reverberate or Wild Ricochet can counter their counters

R.C. Thx for your upvote bruh. I very appericate your fantastic and positive comment! :D

Before this concept, I used 4x Icy Manipulators, 4x Twiddles, 4x Mana Shorts and similar cards. The problem I had is obviously: too mana intensive. So I lost most of my games. With War's Toll I don't have to pay for any instant or sorcery spell, because this Enchantment does the needed effect automatically.

My Playgroup are mostly playing creature-heavy ability decks like Allies or Elves. More casual, between 20 and 60 dollars and not competitive. When I playtested this deck for the first time in a Two-Headed Giant Game, I've noticed their funny faces. It was a typical what-the-fuck-moment for them. And I love these moments while playing underrated magic cards. :D

Plahbie I never thought about using gideons intervention or nevermore like that and oh my god that is so deliciously evil haha. Great way to shut down a combo deck that relies on it's commander especially in non w/g colors (ie mizzix or jhoira).

As for curse of nightly hunt, there are probably just better ways to invoke the same effect. Fumiko the Lowblood gives you the effect, asymmetrically globally and gives you a potentially strong blocker if people decide to start sending things your way. Goblin Spymaster is another that is asymmetrically global as well, for the same CMC as curse of nightly hunt. The only benefit of the curse is that it's not removed by a board wipe and there's not that much incentive to remove it since it doesn't really prove to be a major threat in most cases. If you really want to get oppressive War's Toll is a fantastic one too (probably the best of the bunch, but it will draw IMMEDIATE hate from the table which is generally not what an aikido strategy is looking to do).

32 mountains beg to put Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle in.

Don't think Form of the Dragon is good in your deck, other than lore-wise.

If you want some more stax pieces like Tectonic Instability, War's Toll is really good.

Hey ho bro how r u? :) Since you are a casual expert with many interesting experimental decks, I just wanted a short advise from you in regard to a deck that I currently change. As you know I created my Sorrow‘s Path Deck a while ago. I Used the mechanic War's Toll with Smoke to handle the Drawback of war’s toll’s second ability. The positive effect is: I don‘t have to fill my card slots with Cards like Twiddle cuz Lands will be tapped automatically due to war’s toll‘s first ability. Now I am not sure whether I should still run this Engine/combo or replace it with the good old Icy Manipulator. Although this artifact is a beast, I tried to playtest it but without success - this artifact seems to be slow. An another idea could be Opposition but there are only a few interesting creatures for such a niche deck to tap. Here you can find the deck: Subversive advertisement of the pernicious tobacco. Thank you and stay frosty!

I like this new deck as it is interesting. If your goal is to force players to enter combat should look into goading them. Warmonger Hellkite, Curse of Bounty, Goblin Diplomats, Decree of Pain, No Mercy, Grand Melee, Trove of Temptation, War's Toll and Hissing Miasma.

There is also Revel in Riches when creatures your opponents controlled are killed. Hopefully this will help you out.

Hi, so I see what you are trying to do here but I think you went to all in on destroying lands. What I mean by this is there are too many Stone Rain effects, not enough ways for your deck to operate. For a deck like this to win you need to be able to draw a lot of cards and sustain your own game. A lot of the times a deck like this will draw a lot of aggression on a table, so you need to be able to protect your self and make the most out of a low land count and a lot of enemy's. Dingus Egg can help you actually kill players instead of just annoying them,Jokulhaups will neuter the table, but keep your "do stuff" enchantment and planeswalkers alive. These cards are a little protection for you Polluted Bonds,Ankh of Mishra,Crawlspace,Price of Glory,No Mercy,Burning Sands,Smoke, Tainted AEther, Rain of Gore, War's Toll. You also need more card draw so Necropotence, Underworld Connections, Greed, Phyrexian Arena,Erebos, God of the Dead, Solemn Simulacrum,Yavimaya Elder,and Memory Jar are good inclusions. Some other just good cards for you are Thaumatic Compass  Flip,Borborygmos Enraged, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar,Creeping Renaissance, Praetor's Counsel,Burgeoning,Tilling Treefolk,Krosan Tusker,World Shaper,Constant Mists,Tempt with Discovery,Horn of Greed,Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire. There are a lot more cards that would make this deck much more explosive and be more punishing. I would go on EDHREC.com and look at the commonly used cards of Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire,The Gitrog Monster,Mogis, God of Slaughter and Borborygmos Enraged to focus your list.
