Deflecting Palm


The next time a source of your choice would deal damage to you this turn, prevent that damage. If damage is prevented this way, Deflecting Palm deals that much damage to that source's controller.

legendofa make the theft tag for permanent theft effects. Make a Threaten tag for temporary effects and use the existing aikido for Deflecting Palm effects

Made_Compleat That's one of the most common requests, and one of the hardest to address. Right now, I consider Theft decks to fall under the Aikido hub. This is sort of a tenuous position for them, but I'm not sure how to separate it from the "damage reflection" archetype built around Deflecting Palm, Boros Fury-Shield, and similar cards. They have a similar theme of turning the opponent's deck against them. I'm also not sure if decks based on Control Magic-type effects are similar enough to Threaten + Thud decks to belong in the same hub. Any thoughts you might have are very welcome.

Kjartan Exactly! Not to mention Urza's Saga or Heliod, Sun-Crowned and so on.

And it doubles as creature removal which, when you maindeck four Giver of Runes you're winning those fights (plus if they do win your four Esper Sentinel extract a tithe).

The +1/+1 can ramp Primordial Hydra or Hydra's Growth like crazy and Ozolith, the Shattered Spire doubles that already absurd ramp speed again.

Oh and it can block red burn saving creatures from Lightning Bolt or saving you from Deflecting Palm humiliation.

Amazing card. Oh and did I mention that with Archon of Emeria down you can just wait until they cast their main phase spell and it becomes practically uncounterable.

The opponent won't draw the 3 cards.

You cast Deflecting Palm naming Risk Factor as the source. Then when Risk Factor resolves, you choose for it to deal you 4 damage. Deflecting Palm redirects that damage to the controller of Risk Factor (your opponent).

Net result, your opponent draws no cards, and takes 4 damage from their own Risk Factor.

If an opponent casts Risk Factor and I respond by casting Deflecting Palm preventing the next source of damage Risk Factor would deal to me...

Would they get to draw the 3 cards if I chose to take the damage?

I think you meant Deflecting Swat not Deflecting Palm

With a deck name like this one, you don't have Deflecting Palm for flavor purposes?

Anyway nice deck.

SufferFromEDHD Made some swaps, most of your suggestions have been put in.

Long-Term Plans fits with the deck theme far too well, had to find a slot for it.

Peacekeeper doesn't exactly fit with my rough plan. It's not that I don't want any attacks, I just don't want any attacks at me.

Orim's Chant is perfect, put it in.

Teleportation Circle doesn't really work for the plan I have for the flickers. All the one's in the deck are instants, so that I can use Pramikon as a pseudo Deflecting Palm. Swapping directions and forcing someone trying to attack me to attack another opponent instead. They can also be used to save a creature from targeted removal in a pinch.
