Mirror Strike

Instant

Target unblocked creature deals combat damage to its controller instead of to you this turn.

Hey alexjustdoit i like Boros Fury-Shield and I've been thinking in replace Mirror Strike with it, since I can use it when one of my opponents is attacking another opponent.

Even though Reflect Damage is not tutorable through Sunforger and it's little more expensive, mana and financially, i feel that it can be useful, not only to protect me from creature damage, but also in situations where someone casts a damage boardwipe like Blasphemous Act or Chain Reaction or when someone casts a big X damage spell, like Crackle with Power, we will reflect all the damage back at the caster.

Not related, but i just found Equal Treatment, which i think can be useful against Craterhoof Behemoth like strategies or to pump 1/1 wide tokens. And draws us a card.

I have a Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts main goal is to get opponents to attack me. I believe I have a good amount of Tempting the attack and forcing the attack. Now for the payoff for doing that to me. So far I have Blessed Reversal Comeuppance Inkshield Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker Mirror Strike No Mercy Norn's Annex Revenge of Ravens Angel's Trumpet Season of the Witch Any suggestions are appreciated. Here is also the link to the list

golgarigirl I have both because there isn't too many cards like Comeuppance and Mirror Strike in these colors. The thought is if I get attacked I still want to take the combat damage but at the same time still be in the game.

I love it! Have you thought of Arcbond, Delirium, Backlash, Traitor's Roar, Souls of the Faultless, or Boros Fury-Shield?

My favorite are the three that skip damage prevention and redirect instead. Thereby allowing your opponents to take lethal commander damage from their own commander. Although that is a rare occurrence unless you pump their creatures first. Reflect Damage, Mirror Strike & Glarecaster.

Some other interesting cards with similar effects Selfless Squire, Agonizing Demise, Shriveling Rot, Eye for an Eye & Harsh Justice.

I love these effects so much that the first deck I built ended up being split into 3. Each emphasizing different mechanics The bigger they are, the better they fall damage and spell doubling with Deflecting Palm, The Game of Houses (Daes Dae'mar) a more political redirection where I work on building up my opponents creatures and trying to take them out with commander damage from their own commanders, and a Stuffy creature based one with Feather at the helm which I just realized I never added to tapped out. Check them out if you'd like!

Muglacious_NiceFaceToad on Cards that buff opponents creatures

2 years ago

Hello I am tuning my deck towards utilizing Backlash , Reflect Damage , Delirium , Mirror Strike , & Glarecaster . I am finding frequently that their creatures are not big enough and would like to find some cards to increase the power of my opponents creatures.

So far I have Hatred , Rush of Blood , Overblaze , and although Tainted Strike doesn't make them more powerful it can make them lethal for less. I was thinking Coat of Arms ?

I am avoiding the use of damage doublers as I have another deck which focuses on that. Overblaze is an exception.

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance! (I am currently slogging through the gatherer)

i am adding Mirror Strike The Great Aurora and a few more land fetch cards turns out that The Great Aurora counts the tokens you have on the field so 10 tokens means drawing 10 extra cards

MonkeySit on Damage Prevention Payoffs?

You could perhaps redirect the damage instead of preventing it entirely but you would preventing it from hitting you which would help boost your Selfless Squire. I'll try keep to the white theme for you as much as possible but what I have found is: Captain's Maneuver, Empyrial Archangel, Hazduhr the Abbot, Mirror Strike, Sivvi's Valor - I'm not sure on the play of this but my assumption is that damage may start targeting the above creatures so that they may target you instead, so this instant could have that damage target you which you could then activate one of the previous cards to have it target them? due to the low cost of the instant of course as there are other creatures out there that you can have the damage target another target creature such as Oracle's Attendants for example. Turn the Tables is an excellent way to have the opponent punished for attacking. As mentioned above, I think Azor's Elocutors could be a great Win Con.

As you can see there are quite a few examples of what you could go with. I have just used http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&text=+%5Bwould%5D+%5Bbe%5D+%5Bdealt%5D+%5Bdamage%5D+%5Btarget%5D+%5Bcreature%5D+%5Binstead%5D+!%5Bprevent%5D&color=+%5BW%5D (I'm sorry, I'm still new here and I can't figure out how to use the link function lol) and i'm sure that you could find something among this list that might be of more help to you :)
