You may exile a blue card from your hand rather than pay Misdirection's mana cost.

Ok so I didn't check to see if any of these were in the deck already but... here's my list of suggestions!

It's a lot of cards so...

Again some of these may be cut worthy but off the cuff this is what I came up with. Also I didn't include any ninjas... I figure they are easy enough to find

Raging_Squiggle on Top 5 Counterspells Of All …

Basically any free counterspell is the best counterspell in my opinion. So it’d be Force of Will , Force of Negation , Pact of Negation , Misdirection , Fierce Guardianship , Mental Misstep , etc.

After those, the one mana counters.

jaymc1130 there's plenty opportunity to tap out past turn 1 in cEDH:

Force of Will , Force of Negation , Pact of Negation , Fierce Guardianship , Deflecting Swat , Misdirection ...

Notion Thief also has flash, right? And I was taught that it's better to draw cards than to ramp, so Notion Thief should be at least as big of a problem as Hullbreacher ... However, 4 mana is significantly more than 3 in formats that care about being efficient, and spending resources on ramping might be worse than spending them on securing cards in hand, but Wizards should have known that ramping without spending extra resources is among the most broken things in Magic, they've known that since the original Moxen.

Azdranax cEDH is not a separate format. It's a different philosophy on the same format. It's using the rules of EDH (which is a casual format by definition, as you can read here ) with the mindset of a competitive format like Legacy. By definition, cEDH is a misinterpretation of how the format is supposed to be played. The most competitive players, however, are usually the most vocal about what they don't like, and have gotten really good at kicking up enough ruckus to change what they don't agree with. That's how Flash got banned. The RC doesn't typically consider cEDH because they don't regulate the format to be compatible with cEDH. cEDH is a just a community response, that explicity uses the exact same rules for differently-themed games. I think that's also why Opposition Agent is not banned in EDH, because that is specifically only dangerous in cEDH, and a lot less potent against some Ally tribal deck, or whatever casual battlecruise deck EDH was intended for as a format.

If you're looking for a 100 card singleton format that's aimed at competitive play and doesn't use a casual banlist, try Canadian Highlander. It uses the Vintage banlist, which means just no Shahrazad , dexterity cards, ante cards and cards with the Conspiracy type. But if you want to play Commander of any kind, you're bound by the RC's banlist, by virtue of format philosophy.

Hey there!

I love Paradoxical Outcome decks in vintage. They are so fast and so resilient at the same time. I was wondering, is there any reason why you only run one of every spell? I feel like you could gain a lot of consistency from doing the following:

IN

OUT

Misdirection , Mystical Dispute , Spell Pierce , Expressive Iteration , Lion's Eye Diamond , Lotus Petal , Wishclaw Talisman , Peek and Night's Whisper .

The big thing is you need the playset of Force of Will and Paradoxical Outcome . Besides that, the rest is really up to you.

I have a deck of my own, I would love if you drop a vote and any suggestions you may have:

Hi! My advice is replace some of the creatures with cheap or free counter magic. I would defiantly cut Wonder , K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth , Spark Double and Throatseeker the rest is up to you. Don't under estimate free creatures without evasion like Memnite and Phyrexian Walker .

Some disruption spells i would recommend are Commandeer , Chain of Vapor , Flusterstorm . Their expensive so some budget options are Fatal Push , Misdirection , Murderous Cut , Spell Pierce . Also i would recommend some library manipulation like Spy Network , Ponder , Mission Briefing , Lim-Dul's Vault (its good but expensive). Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top are also great top deck manipulation but probably no worth the money.

I recon Access Tunnel , Blinkmoth Nexus , Halimar Depths and Mystic Sanctuary should replace Path of Ancestry , Temple of the False God , Isolated Watchtower , High Market .

Finally i would recommend some better high CMC cards to reveal with Yuriko activation's. Some of the cards i recommended already double as good reveals but you could add: Sea Gate Restoration  Flip, Nexus of Fate , Time Warp . Their not budget friendly but there good. Take out two lands if you use Sea Gate Restoration and Agadeem's Awakening  Flip for obvious reasons.

I hope this helps :D

A classic. I like Misdirection and Rebuff the Wicked in my competitive zur list. But if you like funny zur decks in general, I just built See what's possible with the new Zurface Pro which is a very casual take on zur that you might find interesting.
