I am considering throwing in Mana Drain and Flusterstorm into my deck here, but I don't know. Not even sure if Fluster would even be of any use in this deck and I don't actually have control in this deck per-SE. I have a few things on the way, but what is really missing is the Mox Diamond and the grim monolyth and what I originally have planned out for the deck will be complete.

EDIT For Some reason someone else's deck comes up when I put the name of mine in. sorry. I am sure if you go into my profile you can get it. deck-large:Vasarto 77-The 8th Plague

Mana Drain is great a few counter spells never hurt I would go with Counterspell over Flusterstorm

Hey, quick question. Let's say I counter something on my opponents turn 2 and I have the two mana to counter something, does that mana I get empty from HIS steps and phases ending, or my own which would mean it would carry until just after my upkeep?

Gidgetimer - Thank you. Not sure what I did wrong. Kept linking to someone elses deck with same name. Never use to but someone named their deck same as mine.

Mana empty's from your pool at every phase (in every turn including opponents)

Flusterstorm gets better as the decks get more competitive. 100% worth if people are commonly playing inf combos and multiple spells per turn

@vasarto77 - Mana Drain doesn't give you the mana until YOUR next main phase. You'd then have your precombat main phase to use that mana but as soon as you move to combat that mana disappears if unused.

last laugh - OK, I guess I missed that first part of the text. I put it onto my buy list a while back and when my FLNGS got it in for me I wasn't sure what to do with it exactly. So I guess I will find a spot to swap something out for it. Got any ideas of what to take out for it? I only have a few infinite combos and I have a lot of utility stuff. I am not sure if I wanna remove a mana rock, but I might take out Everflowing Chalice for a Grim Monolith if I get one soon. Maybe take out the puzzle box or Blue Sun's Zenith or a Mindmoil ? Getting harder to figure out what I want in and what I want out. I def want the infinite combos or what few of them there are in the deck, but I am not sure if I have just the right amount or too many hand cycle cards in here lol.

OMG, lol. I just realized something I haven't before. Tolarian Winds on a scepter plus Paradox Engine if I have a mana rock out. Come to think of it I think I had paradox engine out when I had the beta version of this way before I had accumulated most of the cards I needed for it. Since I don't believe in making decks with cards I don't actually own, or at least I have stopped doing such my deck has gone a ton of changes since then. Use to have no infinite combos and no hand swapping cards and no mana rocks and almost all of the cards in it use to be pay like 1-4 mana and draw like 2 cards etc.
