Izzet Counter Hulk

Okay folks, here are my thoughts on this deck.

Focus on Gearhulk for end game, and of course ticking damage from thermo and fevered.

  • Alot of counters feed Baral into drawing cards, the discard will ideally be temper with madness.
  • Turn aside to protect fevered, thermo, GH etc.and triggering Baral once again.
  • Shock is there for the anti Saheeli combo card. They trigger her ability...respond with shock to kill her before she flickers.
  • Spell shrivel is an odd ball that i want to try out, it eats mana up if they want pay to keep. Devastating to big drops.

Thoughts and criticism are always welcome. Thanks.

not sure how negate is main board but I personally would dig the incendiary flow in its place and I wouldn't change a thing after that :) +1 from me.

Hi AmHood, thx for the upvote...negate is in there because i believe we are going to see alot...ALOT more planeswalkers now that copter is gone. Also with all the artifacts that are coming, it just makes sense to add it into the counter package.

Love the deck, have been toying around with some similar ideas myself. Have you considered any quantity of Lightning Axes to clean up any troublesome beaters that slip through counters? I found that trying to stick an early-ish Fevered Visions could leave you shields down and let something with toughness > 3 stick to the board.

Also, once you make it to the sideboard, Ceremonious Rejection + Baral is straight gas. Good luck!

Thx PlasticStranger, yes i was also looking at ceremonious for the board. Still tweaking the board and of course waiting until the meta changes, but yes with all the new vehicles rejection is needed.

Lite axe isnt on my radar for this deck, i plan on countering eveything after turn 2-3. I may board a burn package after some testing if i cant counter enough.
