Lunar Force


Whenever an opponent casts a spell, sacrifice Lunar Force and counter that spell.

Thank you for the comment, aznb01777.

Hesitation runs into a similar problem to Lunar Force . You shouldn't think of it as a "counter" necessarily, because it never counters something you want it to. In that case, the card is more like a two mana stax piece that forces one opponent to waste some small amount of mana and a card from their hand: not particularly powerful. Unlike Lunar Force, however, if your opponents choose not to cast spells, this stax piece could hinder you as well. Because of this, along with the fact that you must have Muldrotha on the board to make good use of this card, I personally do not recommend the card for most Muldrotha lists.

Additionally, the card falls into a category of cards in which the average impact is less than the amount of hate directed towards you. In other words, the card draws too much attention to yourself for its own good. If you like the effect of Hesitation and want to still play a good political game, I would recommend Standstill instead. The card is much more unlikely to make enemies, and can still achieve a solid stax effect.

Love the deck! I was looking for a build around of Lunar Force and this gave me some ideas. Have a great day!

Oh wow, that's a lot of suggestions. Thanks king-saproling!

Lunar Force is an interesting idea that definitely synergizes well with Venser. However to use it properly, you'd be required to use a lot of mana (3 mana on the Force, while saving up another 4 for Venser). Though I think if the ability was a may-ability, it would totally be worth it.

Speaking of "mays," would the same trick work with Perplexing Chimera? I'm not familiar with the fine-print of the interaction, but I believe you could return Chimera to your hand as its ability triggers, and basically steal their spell with no downside (besides paying a total of 9 mana for the exchange)? If that would work, that would be pretty nifty indeed.

Okay, so the Ghostly Flicker/Displace cards are for the combos with stuff like Naru Meha, Master Wizard? Interesting. I haven't thought of that. Does this kind of fall in with your Sigil Tracer suggestion?

I've been keeping Equilibrium in the back of my mind for quite some time now. On paper it's a really good card, but I've found that most of the time, I'd rather be playing something else, and it becomes a dead card in my hand. It does synergize really well with Venser, but it's also pretty mana intensive.

Cloudstone Curio. Now that is a suggestion! I'm still not entirely sure about all of the implications of this card, but right away, I can see that it can potentially make Venser bounce one extra thing every time he hits the board. I suppose that it also makes it easier to bounce Venser back to your hand with another creature if you don't have one of the Gourmet Bagels out. It also allows you to infinitely bounce a Great Whale with a Peregrine Drake (or a Glasspool Mimic  Flip/Clever Impersonator/Spark Double/Phyrexian Metamorph for that matter). A definite include.

Cool deck! You might consider these: Lunar Force (this one is really cool. after its trigger goes on the stack, bounce it to your hand with venser. the opp's spell will still be countered by lunar force. it also prevents counter wars as force will counter everything on the stack while it's out), Reality Acid, Vedalken Mastermind, Erratic Portal, Kefnet's Monument, Sunken Hope, Perplexing Chimera, Mirrormade, Cloudstone Curio, Sigil Tracer, Displace, Ghostly Flicker, Equilibrium, Meteor Golem, Duplicant, Merchant Scroll

Use Lunar Force and Ashiok's Erasure for some hard counters
