Since ending the game in a draw means everyone loses, would I be able to play Angel's Grace or have Platinum Angel on the field when something like Divine Intervention 's last counter is removed by something like Clockspinning or AEther Snap and win?

Battle of Heart-Bridge

Enchantment - Saga

: Create a 1/1 red Human creature with haste and ": Target Human you control gets +1/+0 until end of turn and a 1/1 red Human Soldier creature with First Strike.

: Sacrifice a Human, discard your hand. Exile the top two cards of your library. Until Battle of Heart-Bridge you may play those cards.

: Bridge of Heart Bridge deals 1 damage to each creature. Draw a card for each Human destroyed this way.


I'd like to see a card which interacts with Sagas specifically, either positively or negatively, or like Clockspinning , where it can work both ways.

I really didn't want to play any of the new Elder Dragons. I pulled Tanazir in that sick full-alternate art...I might consider building him now.

Cards you might want to consider:

Simic Ascendancy

Inexorable Tide

Contagion Clasp

Clockspinning

Everflowing Chalice

Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter

Mowu, Loyal Companion

Soul's Might

Galloping Lizrog

Vorel of the Hull Clade

I think this deck is really well-positioned to become a "draw-go" style control deck that plays instants and flash creatures on others' turns. Pteramander , Augur of Bolas , Brineborn Cutthroat , Threnody Singer , Vodalian Arcanist , Naiad of Hidden Coves , Wavebreak Hippocamp , Murmuring Mystic , and all of your instants (save for the likely too slow 4 mana ones) already fit in such an archetype to at least some extent. The horse fish is particularly insane as a card draw engine, and I'd try to get a playset of it if you can. Stacking them to draw even more cards with Nymris, Oona's Trickster , Baral, Chief of Compliance , Slitherwisp , etc. would also make Ominous Seas more viable, possibly even supplemented by draw payoffs like Chasm Skulker and Nadir Kraken .

Some other options that care about flash might be Cunning Nightbonder , Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , Leyline of Anticipation , Torrential Gearhulk , and Mystical Teachings .

For more generally good instants, Counterspell , Mana Leak , Countersquall , Frantic Search , AEtherize , Vapor Snag , Rewind , Cryptic Command , Opt , and Brainstorm (if you're playing with the legacy banned list) are options of varying budgets and power levels for a control deck.

The first cards I'd cut would be anything with suspend or that applies keyword ability counters. I think some amount of counter manipulation would be needed to maximize the value from such cards (with Clockspinning , Jhoira's Timebug , Paradox Haze , and Nikara, Lair Scavenger being a few things that come to mind). Then, I'd cull any sorceries or creatures that would take up all your mana on your own turn for minimal impact. Dead Revels , Frost Lynx , Alirios, Enraptured , and so on.

Sorry it took me a while to submit this after seeing the deck get posted earlier this week. Let me know if you have any questions and good luck with your build!

I think Neotrup covered it, but just in case the reason this doesn't work isn't clear, here's the short version:

At the beginning of your upkeep, both suspend triggers go on the stack. Once the one on top resolves and casts its spell, that spell goes on the stack above the other suspend trigger. It will resolve before the other suspended card gets its time counter taken off.

In regards to your other question, if you cast Reiterate from suspension without paying its mana cost, you can still pay the buyback (as this is an additional cost, not part of the mana cost). Note that if you don't have a target for Reiterate when its last time counter is removed, you can't cast it and it will just stay exiled forever. You'll need Clockspinning or Jhoira's Timebug to get the Reiterate out of suspension when you can use it.

No, both suspend triggers go on the stack to remove a counter, the first resolves triggering the ability to cast it, which then resolves and lets you cast that spell. If Reiterate is the one that's still suspended, you could then cast something like Clockspinning to remove the last counter and cast it in response with the original suspended spell still on the stack, but short of something like that the first will resolve before you remove the counter from the other.
