Force of Negation

Force of Negation


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.

Doing it without Tron lands could give you a brew that looks very similar to existing Soulherder archtypes (just without Soulherder)... something like this might be almost-competitive (although at this point, it's a very different list to what you're trying to achieve, so not sure if this is the route you'd want to go down):

You could definitely put together Mono-green elves or Mono-blue Merfolk for probably that budget (minus some big cards like Force of Negation or Cavern of Souls). Not tier 1, but definitely stronger than average build. Both are creature-based aggro strategies and not necessarily a ton of ways to win, but I wouldn't call them one-trick pony. I build a ton of budget decks, so I don't have many on my profile that will help. I'm kind of a fan of Skred Swans myself, and you could probably get it in your budget if you dropped off Snappy, Blood Moon, and Force of Negation, trade out the Fetchlands for something cheaper. It's a bit more of a control/burn strategy, but definitely has a variety of play options. I'll be curious to hear what kind of decks and strategies he likes to play, and maybe I can toss out some other suggestions later.

Did a bit more research and talked to some of my professional MTG friends, and I'm gonna rock two Spell Pierce in hopes of pulling one in the early game, they are low cost, and I won't have to sacrifice a much needed card like I'd have to with Force of Negation. First few rounds and your opponent most of the time won't have the extra land to cough up to negate your Spell Pierce as well. Then add two Force of Negation if the game goes past the first few rounds as it will be much more effective in the later rounds after your opponent has built up some mana that they could easily negate Spell Pierce with.

HobbyMan5000 I've looked at both as possibilities, but not a fan of the high upkeep cost of Pact of Negation. I have been juggling the idea of, Force of Negation as it can for the most part be a free spell.

2 Pact of Negation and 2 Force of Negation would be real interesting in this, maybe instead of Spell Pierce IDK

Some thoughts:

  • almost all decks with Lurrus, run Mishra's Bauble. At the moment, you don’t have many good targets for Lurrus.

  • Decks i’ve seen running Force of Negation usually don’t run more than 2ish, as the card disadvantage from playing multiple can start to hurt. But i assume running 4 is still fine most of the time.

  • I’d swap out Drown in the Loch for Counterspell. You don’t have many ways to fill an opponents grave, and you already have plenty of ways to kill creatures, so an unconditional counter seems more practical here (especially if you’re concerned about big stuff like Murktide).

  • having Chalice of the Void AND Void Mirror in the sideboard feels excessive, you probably only need one of these, unless your entire meta is cascading into Living End
