Hey, that trade proposal sounds perfect either way. Once you figure out which way it looks, feel free to initiate.

Looks like I'll need to give Narset's Reversal a chance based off of multiple recommendations here! Some of those cases seem pretty backbreaking if I hold it for the right moment!

hejtmane- Ah, I forgot about Flusterstorm. And Mystical Dispute seems good against other blue decks, but I forgot to mention that I don't play cEDH where I'm at (fewer blue decks I guess), so that will definitely influence some answers that I'll get. Thanks for the response!

Hello all!

I'm simply asking which are the best counterspells available in EDH. I have a UW somewhat-controlling deck, and I want to make sure the last few counterspell slots I have (roughly 12 or so in total) are better than other possible options. I know that Force of Will, Force of Negation, and Mana Drain are the best, followed closely by Pact of Negation, the OG- Counterspell, Cryptic Command, and then possibly Negate or Dovin's Veto. My question is which ones do you choose after those? Here are some that I've run before:

Swan Song

Dispel

Spell Pierce

Arcane Denial

Archmage's Charm

Muddle the Mixture

Delay

Deprive -(when you also run Mystic Sanctuary)

Disdainful Stroke

Stubborn Denial

Render Silent

Disallow

Which of these would make the cut in a deck that cared both about the overall quality of the counter as well as the efficiency (cmc) of the counter? Are there any more that I've missed that are worth mentioning? Please let me know which ones (4-5) you would use after the initial 8 that I mentioned! (P.S.- I know we're talking about blue counterspells here, so please be kind even if it's the type of magic that you don't like).

Sounds good.

Now for the next part, since you've mentioned you're new to trading on this site, there are a few rules that generally apply. TappedOut keeps track of completed trades as a way to show that certain people are reliable traders. You can go to my trade binder and see that I have over 130 completed trades if you'd like. I've been many people's first trades here over the years. But until you have established enough of a trade history yourself (generally 10+ trades), it's customery that the new trading party sends their end of the trade first. This is to protect against scammers who would simply make new accounts to rip people off. It is also an incentive for people like me who have successful trade histories to continue to be on the up-and-up so I can continue to trade on this site.

After we lock in a trade on this page, and once we receive the other person's cards in the mail, we simply press the "mark as received" button that will pop up here to notify that we got the other end of the trade. Once both people do that, the trade is moved to our history and others can see who we've traded with. If others have any doubts about trading with you in the future they can contact me and I can vouch for you if our trade is successful.

Sorry for the wall of text. Let me know if you have any questions about anything, I'm happy to help!

Ok. I was going off of memory with the cards you mentioned in the other post so please forgive me. You'll need to edit your end of the trade in the white box at the top of this page.

So my 2 cards come out to $37 ($20 for Elspeth, $17 for Calix).

Yours come out to $36.50 ($21.50 for the Vista, $6 for Hexdrinker, and $4.50x2 for the 2 Coatls)

If you throw in 1-2 of the full art lands from the new Theros set (preferably Forests, but any will do), I'll call it even if that's ok with you.

I started a trade here, but don't lock in yet please. I think we're a little off from each other, but I put these cards here to start with. I'm on mobile, so as soon as I get back home to my PC we can work out something closer.

Skyler1776- Prismatic Vista interests me for sure. With the Hexdrinker and Coatls I'm sure we can work something out. Shoot me a trade invite and we can get started.

capriom85- We can definitely work something out. I have a spare Glacial Fortress , Reflector Mage , and I'll check to see if I have a full set of Elite Guardmage . If I don't have a set of the guardmage I can just add a 2nd Reflector Mage. Would that be ok with you?

Skyler1776- from what I'm seeing on tcg player, their combined value is just under $40. My wish list should be up to date with all the non-Theros cards I'm looking for if you'd like to see those. Let me know what you think!

capriom85- I am interested in the Ox. Let me know what you're looking for and we can see if we can work something out!

So I opened and did pretty well in my prerelease and got a prerelease foil Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis (still in its packaging), a pack foil normal art Calix, Destiny's Hand , and the following rares/foils:

Dryad of the Ilysian Grove

The First Iroan Games

Enigmatic Incarnation

Setessan Champion

Nessian Boar

Gallia of the Endless Dance

Tectonic Giant

Erebos's Intervention

Aphemia, the Cacophony

Plains

Constellation foil Renata, Called to the Hunt

I'm mostly looking to get at least one Heliod, Sun-Crowned , although I'd also like to get a non-foil constellation Klothys, God of Destiny , Idyllic Tutor , Staggering Insight , and 2x Ox of Agonas . If you need cards to fill for a trade, there are a few commons I'm looking for as well as as many of the new full art lands as possible. Let me know if you're interested in anything!

Dang, opal ban really killed my favorite pet deck Cheerios though. And no, I did not just buy 3 Okos with Christmas money...
