Oh man Lapse of Certainty is an interesting magic card. It doesn’t do something white typically does, but it feels incredibly white.

However, considering blue is considered “mind magic” I would definitely consider it a break.

DemonDragonJ: To respond to your question, I would tend to say yes.

As others have argued, counterspells may be (I emphasize may be) tertiary in white. I personally don't feel there are enough counterspells in white to justify that (I counted only a handful in all of Magic's history).

The last white counterspell that wasn't a reprint (near as I can tell) was Lapse of Certainty from 2009. I would call it a hard bend at the least.

There's also Lapse of Certainty, Illumination, Rebuff the Wicked and Dawn Charm who didn't have the mana type switch to hide behind '^^

Pretty cool list, but the deck seems to lack a bit of interaction: Lapse of Certainty, Rebuff the Wicked, Shunt and Grasp of Fate are really good choices

Good points. I have already taken out Magnetic Theft and replaced it with Lapse of Certainty

Love your decklist. Looks almost identical to the one I brewed. I find that going a little heavy on the sunforger makes this deck very adaptable. I cant tell you how many times Lapse of Certainty off Sunforger has saved me though. They never see it coming and it is some of our only protection against Cyclonic Rift.

Is Magnetic Theft very useful for you? It seems like it might be a dead card a lot of the time.

Hey man, first of all great brew, seems very strong. Quick questions:

  1. Any thoughts on Serra Ascendant (imho great one mana beater, don't know if it's worth the slot tho...)
  2. On recursion, what do you think about Sevinne's Reclamation?
  3. Is Lapse of Certainty Any good? Too slow maybe?

Keep it up :)
