Grind on Nezahal Counterspells

2 months ago

cool deck! i have never played against a nezahal deck, it looks interesting.
if you want to draw cards, i have to recommend Recurring Insight. if you can make sure it goes off (which you should be able to with all your counters) you can usually draw 12 - 14 cards for just 6 mana. really great.
the other card i have to recommend is Turnabout. looks like your deck is going to the late game, not trying to combo out early on. when you have a lot of lands on the field, turnabout can really pump up your mana.
given that you are heading to the late game, i would usually run boring rocks like Worn Powerstone and Palladium Myr over Mana Vault and Basalt Monolith because they actually net you mana in the long run. but that is kind of a personal choice.
also, once it comes out you could look at Bonders' Enclave over Blighted Cataract.
also you say you are slowing down your opponents but you are avoiding stax, but in case you want to reconsider there are some good options in blue: Frozen Aether, Embargo, Mana Breach, Rising Waters, Standstill, Shimmer, Sunder, Stasis, Mana Breach.... just sayin you got options.
finally you have so many great spells in your deck, it is a shame you only get to cast them once! a little recursion goes a long way, i love to run cards like Archaeomancer, Call to Mind, Mission Briefing and Recall.
anyway, those are my thoughts and hope you find them helpful! keep having fun and cheers!

Got a question? Love you deck ideas, and you say you like off wall fun wins tell me then would my combo work?

Swarm Intelligence in play then cast Army of the Damned copy it, cast Call to Mind copy it return both Army of the Damned and Call to Mind then repeat, and of course I already have infinite mana combo popped off

Kokuryuha on Taigam, Ojutai Master - Tragically Taking Turns

First of all, thanks to put Taigam back to the place it deserves at cEDH database.

I noticed that there is a mistake in the backup plan (or something that i'm missing): Mission Briefing + Call to Mind does not interact as you stated there since Taigam only gives rebound to instants and sorcery spells you cast from your hand but call to mind is cast from graveyard.

How good is Lavinia performance? i tested for a time but i ended removing her from the list since as soon as my opponents gets their second land almost every single card they play will go through Lavinia.

Finally GAAIV can be a great addition to the list if you want to go for the stax route.

Ilaria, the Gravecaller 

Legendary Creature — Human Warlock

Exploit, flying.

Whenever you sacrifice a permanent, return target instant or sorcery card from your graveyard to your hand.



You can evoke her as a Call to Mind, or hard-cast to get an extra flying body. Either way you can also exploit a creature for an additional spell.

I think Temur and Naya are left.

You don't want to protect your commander with Misdirection or counter their counterspell? Regarding glimmer I can see that, you're just the first competitive list I've seen with it. And I do not discount the cantrips as I have several in my own baral deck, I just was wondering how it played out for you.

I agree with the notable exclusions as you don't have a way to protect them and giving opponents cards is rarely optimal.

Cut Call to Mind for Snapcaster Mage - Doesn't require you to tap out and broadcast your plans. Same CMC (bc of baral)

The next cut is hard... but maybe Mana Leak for Misdirection - Leak gets worse late game and misdirection can be cast for free which is huge in cEDH. If you still don't wish to include it thats fine. It's a pet card of mine that I like to see in most blue because of it's versatility. Many a times I wish I had misdirection over force given my particular meta. With urza in your meta, I can see it's use. Not sure what else you face but I'm assuming it's something with activated ability such as Yawgmoth or Sisay? Thrasios?
