Force of Negation

Instant

If it's not your turn, you may exile a blue card from your hand rather than pay this spell's mana cost.

Counter target noncreature spell. If that spell is countered this way, exile it instead of putting it into its owner's graveyard.

You’re probably right… you spend 5 mana and get a 2/2. You have to protect it with Force of Negation but if the token survives it can swing as an untapped 4/4 that grows by 2 every turn and gives you a draw engine.

I mean games rarely go to top deck battles any more but this would be an awesome top deck

I recently have been attending my LGS and have a meta consisting of affinity, goblins, living end/crashing footfalls, ponza, bogles and prowess/burn.

The decklist that I brought that did well in this field was Saheeli Rai combo deck.... my decklist is just shy of 600 bucks but honestly I don't think Force of Negation is really needed... the point is that the combo is fast and consistent enough to win games get top 3 and its pretty cheap for a modern brew.... but combo isn't for everyone.

Icbrgr on Saheeli Altar/Cat 3rd place FNM!

3 weeks ago

Tonight I placed 3rd out of 10 players at FNM..... I replaced Spell Pierce with Force of Negation in the sideboard (It never came up). I have been attending my LGS for the passed few weeks and have been placing last or tied for last with some of my beloved homebrews; but tonight i wanted to take the gloves off and bring my "more competitive" deck.

Lost Game 1 Vs Ponza: (0-2)

This was a nightmare... game one and early Karn, the Great Creator came down and I scooped looking to change me wincon to Felidar Guardian.... game 2 I kept a 2 lander (A fetchland and a shockland not quite realizing/understanding i was facing Ponza)... Utopia Sprawl shenanigans into an early Blood Moon and I conceded rather than giving him the satisfaction of watching me squirm lol..... yikes... I was feeling really bad after this one.

Won Game 2 Vs Bogles (2-0)

Basically for both games i was just able to combo off before the Gladecover Scout was able to do me in... I was lucky and opened both Rip Aparts for game 2 which made Daybreak Coronet into a brick and it was G.G.s

Won Game 3 Vs Goblins (2-0)

I recognized this player and as soon as i saw the Mountain and the first Goblin I knew what I was up against and was holding onto my Lightning Bolts for the combo enabling goblins.... I drew swiftly into my own Mill combo winning game one and opted for some trickery for game 2 expecting a lot more artifact hate/removal in a mostly Goblin deck; so i took out my sorcery speed removal and put in additional Felidar Guardians. They made for life saving blockers and on the follow up Saheeli Rai was able to make all of the Cats for the win.

So tonight I had what I consider to be great success and am feeling like a winner and thought id share! I did not face the Crashing Footfalls/Living End players this evening and affinity was nowhere to be found tonight...Those decks and Ponza seem to be the decks to beat at this LGS.

your not wrong.... however this player just felt unbeatable to me lol... he had no issues with curb stomping me over and over in exhibition....whether I was able to stop a cascade or even just Force of Negation the Crashing Footfalls itself it just seemed he would be able to rinse and repeat the very next turn or turn after... and somehow usually had an answer for any of my plays to boot.

Icbrgr on Nimble Obstructionist Vs Tale's End

Just wanted to follow up here stating how Tale's End performed tonight.... i faced the guy who was running Living End last week but this week he was playing Crashing Footfalls.

I lost both games....

soooooo there was like 40 min left in the round and we played some exhibition games.... Tale's End was able to interact and stop some cascade shenanigans...but in the end Violent Outburst is just one heck of a card when played on your end step and you just look at your Force of Negation with sadness....

I placed 6th tonight out of 10 players... got clobbered by affinity and rhinos but decimated Burn and humans.

Ardees on Gates? Nine Fingers Keene Competitive

1 month ago

If you are aiming at 'competitive' in the technical sense of the term (as in 'cEDH' or 'competitive EDH'), like the title seems to suggest, I see many staples missing that unfortunately make the deck quite far from being competitive.

Artifacts: you should be running at least Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Mana Vault, Jeweled Lotus, maybe even Grim Monolith and Lion's Eye Diamond.,

Tutors: you are missing Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal, and Worldly Tutor and Green Sun's Zenith if you run any combo, win, or strategy whatsoever based on creatures. You could also add Wishclaw Talisman and Solve the Equation, and, although not a tutor, Peer into the Abyss, which works quite nicely with Thought Vessel.

Lands: any competitive deck plays true duals, namely Underground Sea, Bayou, and Tropical Island. Same for shocklands and at least 6-7 fetchlands in a 3-color deck like this one. You could also consider lower the number of lands, depending on whether or not you want to keep the Gate strategy

Protection: any competitive deck that plays blue automatically plays top-end counterspells, namely Swan Song, Arcane Denial, Force of Will, Force of Negation, Pact of Negation, Fierce Guardianship, Mental Misstep, An Offer You Can't Refuse, and Flusterstorm. You are also missing key cards like Cyclonic Rift or Chain of Vapor. Needless to say, ideally a competitive deck playing blue also plays Timetwister: not a counterspell but a must card (yeah, the price is another topic of conversation).

Creatures: I understand the Gate theme but you are missing some high-value creature cards in here, most notably Dauthi Voidwalker, Malevolent Hermit  Flip, Lotus Cobra, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Ramunap Excavator, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Oracle of Mul Daya, Elvish Reclaimer - to name a few. Much depends on the strategy of your deck, although don't let keywords aligned with your strategy (e.g. 'Gate') fool you into thinking some cards are good for that.

Enchantments: a few staples in the current competitive meta: Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Sylvan Library, Burgeoning, Exploration, maybe Abundance and Necropotence

Removals: you could most definitely swap some of your removals for something better and more competitive, such as Force of Vigor, Nature's Claim, Abrupt Decay, Assassin's Trophy, and more.

Now, I totally understand there is a budget situation going on with upgrading to competitive MtG (spoiler alert: MtG is a pay-to-win type of game, research confirms), but generally the term 'competitive' sticks to decks that, to the very least, include most if not all cards mentioned above - without mentioning the fact that any competitive deck needs running at least one winning combo. At this stage, your level is more looking towards casual. This isn't to criticize you or anything of course, pretty interesting build, just not really a competitive deck in its strict sense.

If you want to try the competitive experience, my suggestion is to proxy cards by printing them online - this should cost around 10 bucks on colored and good quality paper, and effectively save you more than 7k worth of cards.

I would try cutting 1x Counterspell and adding 1x Familiar's Ruse to see how that feels... Ornithopter is kinda tricky due to the tribal benefits for faerie/ninja typings as well as maintaining cards in hand to keep Force of Negation live (currently 26-28 so your plenty fine there)... for playtest purposes try to going down 2x Changeling Outcast and 2x Faerie Seer and trying combinations of thopter and Faerie Miscreant to see what you like/performs best.

Dead_Blue_ on Thursday Night Magic : What …

I looked at all 4 decks, I’d go with either Combo or the “Jank” deck but I’d swap a few things around probably cutting some Helix for Supreme Verdict/Settle the Wreckage and Force of Negation

I don’t think Spell Queller is the greatest outside of spirits
