Do A Baral Roll - Baral $40 Budget Counterspells

Commander / EDH Budget Counters Mono-Blue Tokens




The #1 Baral deck on TappedOut!


In my ongoing endeavor to bring frugality to Commander, each card in this deck is under $2 and the whole deck is under $40. If you like what you see, UPVOTE! or you can check out all my other $40 budget decks. If you see some areas of improvement, let me know what you'd change. Just make sure all suggested cards are under $2.

1) Get Baral, Chief of Compliance onto the battlefield

2) Say no with your counterspells only to the things that will disrupt your commander and your plan

3) Follow one of the win cons to victory

1) Token army from Talrand, Sky Summoner / Docent of Perfection  Flip / Lullmage Mentor / Rise from the Tides

2) Massive damage from Sphinx-Bone Wand / Runechanter's Pike

3) Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip

4) Encourage multiple opponents to go after each other

5) Table-flipping concession by an opponent who is tired of not being able to do anything

I love the challenge of building really cheap decks. This is how the majority of my real life decks start out and then I improve them over time.
