MagicalHacker - List of All Counterspells

Commander / EDH*

MagicalHacker


List of all pertinent counterspells in EDH.

What this includes:

  • Instants and permanents with flash that can make it so that a spell on the stack doesn't resolve
  • Nonblue spells that can counter blue counterspells

What this doesn't include:

  • Sorceries (obviously)
  • Permanents without flash that can counter spells, because they act more as preventative measures that stop opponents from wanting to cast particular cards
  • Cards that cost 1 mana and cannot counter 1/4 of all spells cast in commander, cost 2 mana and cannot counter 1/2 of all spells cast in commander, or cost 3 or more mana (the average number of creatures per deck is 24, instants 9, sorceries 9, artifacts 12, enchantments 8, and planeswalkers 2 according to EDHREC), unless they have an upside or are not blue
  • Cards that can only counter spells unless their controller pays some amount of mana, unless the counterspell costs 1 mana or less or unless the amount that is required to pay is more than the amount of mana that the counterspell costs
  • Cards that can only counter spells of a particular color, except if that color is blue and the card itself is not blue (as countering counterspells, which are normally blue, is particularly unavailable/strong in nonblue decks)
  • Cards that only counter spells that target you/a permanent you control
  • Cards that only counter spells with very specific requirements, such as being kicked ( Ertai's Trickery ), being cast without having any mana paid ( Nix ), or being controlled by a player with a poison counter ( Corrupted Resolve )
  • Cards that can only counter spells based on you having a particular board state of nonland permanents or of cards in your hand, such as in the case of Dispersal Shield
  • Cards that require you to discard cards as an additional cost, unless the card can be cast without paying any mana
  • Cards that fail to counter the spell if the opponent does some action besides pay mana

Please suggest counterspells that fit these parameters, ask about my other helpful resources for EDH, or check out this link to my scryfall search for counterspells.
