StopShot on Alesha: A Slug is Faster Than A Corpse

3 days ago

Not much of a fan of Deflecting Swat as my commander tends not to stay on the battlefield for too long. If your commander isn’t out when you need them you’re practically casting a Cancel in EDH.

Don’t get me wrong though, hard counter spells in non-blue are pretty good, but I think I would rather run Imp's Mischief (or Ricochet Trap if the meta was heavier on blue.) Neither one has that satisfying gotcha effect of casting something for free when you’re tapped out, but paying a set 2 mana cost (or 1 mana cost if you only care about stopping counterspells) I find to be a lot more reliable than a conditional 0 mana cost even if that condition is easy to meet.

Balaam__ on Mill of the Seas

Good build. I’d run 3 Didn't Say Please and 1 Cancel instead of the other way around, but maybe you have a specific reason.

Amechan on CounterSpell Control (CSC) | Historic Brawl

on a side note if you wanna play this in brawl (non-historic) just swap out Omniscience for a Cancel

Omniscience_is_life on Why do people hate Blue?

2 weeks ago

golgarigirl that’s definitely the experience I had as a new player, basically anyone could bluff having a Cancel and I’d quail. Another thing is, especially for new players, fliers. Not being able to stop an incoming attack from a Levitation’d up baddie except maybe with your one Mammoth Spider that you thought looked cool can be a tough experience. (And yes, I know red has dragons, and white has angels, but blue has Archetype of Imagination-type effects)

DemonDragonJ on Maro's Core Set 2021 Teaser

3 weeks ago

Now that the entire set has been revealed, I must say that this is definitely one of the best core sets that WotC has printed in some time; it definitely has raised the bar for core sets, and I expect that WotC shall need to make an effort for core sets in the future to be as awesome as was this one, to avoid disappointing the players.

I am displeased that WotC reprinted Cancel, again, because there are numerous cards that are superior to it; why does WotC not simply retire that card?

TriusMalarky on Why so salty?

Teferi, Time Raveler, also known as "that one card that means that my Stompy deck will forever be better than my Delver or Peezy or Madness etc lists".

It's a pretty unfair card. It effectively softbanned me from playing the game. I love instant speed stuff -- it can be really intellectually stimulating. But WotC apparently doesn't like instant speed interaction. I guess Blue's identity is egregious Walkers that make it hard for your opponent to play the game, rather than having Cancel and Jace's Ingenuity in hand with 5 open. It's a sad change.

the7thDOF on Elsha, Infinite turns

1 month ago

Hi, I hope you are my friend and not a Clever Impersonator of him hacking his account. I’ve done a Frantic Search in your deck, but didn’t find the Elsha of the Infinite turns combo. Maybe the Orcish Librarian ate some pieces already?

Let me know if you want to do a Brainstorm session with me and do a Deep Analysis of the cards you chose, so you Think Twice about this combo of yours.

I would Cancel my plans for a Young Pyromancer like you and share my Chemister's Insight if that helps Increasing Devotion you have for this Devil's Play that we call Magic: the Gathering

I'm no Niv-Mizzet, Parun, you can count on me ;)
