Memory Lapse

Instant

Counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, put it on top of its owner's library instead of into that player's graveyard.

I see you have the cloudkey/foundry inspector + top + mystic forge combo. Moreover, you have the voltaic key + rings + everflowing chalice (4 counters) combo, nice!

Is treasure mage useful given you only have 2 targets for it?

Miscast doesn't seem too impactful, how has it been playing for you? Potential swaps/considerations include.... Remand, Memory Lapse and Misdirection . Misdirection is my favorite, it's kind of like a budget force of will, better in some ways, worse in others. It can redirect targeted removal, draw, extra turns and can "counter" counterspells, all while allowing you to bluff with no mana open. With all the draw in the deck, it doesn't seem hard to be able to pull off.

While not necessary, Imprisoned in the Moon is decent removal (especially on commanders, particularly red and black ones without enchantment removal). Clever Impersonator is just general good stuff to copy something like a zendikar resurgent or what have you.

Icbrgr on Favorite mtg art

I never get tired of threads like this... the artwork is one of my favorite things about this game; even when I was a child and had no clue how to play I used to love looking through my older brothers rubber banded together cards and just look at them... Memory Lapse always intrigued me for some reason.

Now as an adult I tend to get drawn into art for 3 main reasons

In recent sets I think my favorite would probably be Chandra, Dressed to Kill... it's my first alternate/borderless art that I've ever picked up and I'm pretty fond of it.

Remember that you are an aggro deck. As such, you want to lower your mana curve. You don't want to give up on card advantage, but you are willing to ignore life gain and pay some life instead.

Wait, there's no such thing as a foil 6E Memory Lapse. This guy's a phony!

Joking aside, this is fantastic, I love it. The combo, the name, the flavor, the synchronisations, it's gorgeous.

Aighty. That's fair. I don't have a play group so I just build decks online and don't really have experience with people hating a deck. Last two suggestions but one could get hate.
Memory Lapse I think it really fits since you can possibly mill it your turn and get it before your opponent can draw it again. This is more stealing tho so yea.

Brainstealer Dragon It's 7 mana and you might have a hard cap at 6. It's flying tho which helps get it's damage thru plus with commander's ability it'll second effect will activate so could just go for extra damage.

Anyways, again great deck and thank you for your thoughts.

Valid point. I understand how hand disruption works together with the draw control. The issue is that most good discard effects comes from black cards like Inquisition of Kozilek or Duress. I was hoping to avoid going 3 color to keep the mana base simple and fast. Basically just avoiding expensive multicolor lands and tap lands.

Since I'm basically locked into UR, what do you think the feasibility is of replacing that plan with counterspells like Negate or Memory Lapse? Seems like it could achieve a similar effect.

The deck looks way better! I am not sure thought collapse is worth the extra to mill three cards over something as efficient as Counterspell. There's also Miscalculation and Memory Lapse that could fit the bill in terms of general counters. I could also see Negate or Dispel seeing some maindeck play.

Polaris on Countering a Card from Exile

"Countering" actually means sending a card from the stack to the graveyard, so any time you counter a spell, the graveyard is where it goes. If it goes somewhere else, the countering effect will say so explicitly (like Dissipate or Memory Lapse). It doesn't matter where the spell comes from.
