Negate Discussion

ThisIsMyAccount on Zendikar Rising: Rogue One

I'm not really sure I see the value of Confounding Conundrum in standard. I think Negate might just be better for the board.

MrBoombastic on Mr. Steal Your Turn

You've done something to the layout, so all the cards are banded together, instead of being spread out into card types (instant, sorcery, creature etc.), as they usually are. Makes it a little harder to look at.

It seems like your deck is very centered around Slitherwisp, but there are plenty of flash cards even if you take out some of the enchantments. That way you can make room for some cheap and efficient interaction such as Drown in the Loch, which is really strong in this deck. Adding some of the new modal lands over basics might also be nice - Agadeem's Awakening  Flip etc.

For the sideboard, I imagine you want something like:

Honorable mentions: Cling to Dust, Sorcerous Spyglass, Negate, Eat to Extinction, Witch's Vengeance.

Hope that helps. Cheers.

multimedia on Saheeli Pre-Con Upgrade

Hey, thanks for the additional info.

For causal upgrades my advice is add cards that give you repeatable value; either draw, artifact tokens or pump for tokens. Cards in the original precon to consider adding:

Other changes to consider:

Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer is a strong casual card with artifacts. It creates a Myr at your combat step then all token creatures you control can become any token creature you control. You can make all Thopters/Servos into Myrs for a huge Myr Battlesphere attack or make all Myrs/Servos into Thopters for a big flying army attack with Sharding Sphinx to double your army after combat damage.

Temple of the False God is not a good land for your deck because you can't tap it to make mana until your fifth turn at the earliest. It's not worth playing because of this and honestly it's not worth playing in any deck, but that's another discussion.

Sin Prodder can be repeatable draw, but more times than not an opponent will take the damage and have you put the card into your graveyard which is not helping you. Steel Overseer has great interaction with artifact tokens especially Thopters. It also has good interaction with Unwinding Clock letting you on everyone's turn put a counter on all your artifact tokens.

For control you've added three very good counterspells (Counterspell, Swan Song and Negate). Broken Concentration and Silumgar's Scorn don't compare to these other counterspells, that's why you should consider cutting them. Stoic Rebuttal because of the artifact theme activating metalcraft is good enough to add. Instead of more control, focus on your artifact game plan with Saheeli?

Metachemist on Omnath's Fury

I could see cutting a couple of top end, cmc wise, cards to run a little more interaction. But that's just my tastes most likely.

For example I could see cutting Liege of the Tangle, Tornado Elemental, and maybe one of the 6 CMC Chandra's in order to run Negate, Heroic Intervention, and Return to Nature

jaymc1130 on Kinnan the Incredibly Frightening

2 weeks ago

From a competitive standpoint the deck is running so little interaction and protection as it stands that it won't ever be able to hold up in competitive settings.

You'll definitely want each of these pieces of interaction in a Kinnan helmed deck at a minimum:

xCounterspell xMental Misstep xDispel xFlusterstorm xMuddle the Mixture xCyclonic Rift xChain of Vapor xNature's Claim xFierce Guardianship xVeil of Summer xPongify/Rapid Hybridization

As it stands that won't be quite enough pieces to consistently have the access to permission and protection elements to remain in a competitive position in most game states and these pieces are worth running much of the time:

xNegate xDelay xInto the Roil/2cmc bounce spells (UG has very limited access to tools that can remove hate pieces from the board that prevent a win like Grafdigger's Cage, Notion Thief, or Narset, Parter of Veils.) xBeast Within

As an additional note about competitive Kinnan builds, you can lose the Dramatic Scepter stuff entirely. There's no need in a Kinnan deck. The most effective and efficient method of generating the infinite combo needed to win is any dork that can produce U and G mana combined with Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura. Basalt Monolith is worth running in Kinnan decks because it generates infinite colorless with just Kinnan out on the field also, so you can usually get a couple of Kinnan activations off to dig for Thrasios. For the mana dork complement it's best to stick with BoP, all the 1 cmc tap for G elf dorks, and then a handful of 2 cmc "tap for any color" dorks. The most effective back up infinite mana engines for a Kinnan deck are typically Simic Ragworm or Horseshoe Crab paired with Paradise Mantle and the Monolith (which is often why the deck runs Staff of Domination as an additional outlet that's easy to tutor for in the colors) rather than Dramatic Scepter combo as the Scepter combo relies on density of dorks and rocks to be engaged and this can be more difficult than a less card intensive engine (Crab, Mantle, Kinnan is 3 cards with one from the command zone compared to Kinnan, Dramatic Reversal, Isochron Scepter, 2 mana rocks/dorks at 5 cards to engage) and thus less reliable for the game play patterns Kinnan wants to ideally play from. Shapers of Nature and Thrasios, Triton Hero are the standard outlets that will eventually be found from Kinnan activations that allow you to draw the whole deck. From there winning is easy, so stick to win conditions that are more live than things like Blue Sun's Zenith and run Thassa's Oracle plus a looping mechanism (such as Narset's Reversal and Timetwister or Elixir of Immortality) to use the interaction pieces like Swan Song and Pongify as the win conditions (this helps to avoid other issues too, like not being able to win with Oracle due to Angel's Grace, etc, in addition to improving card slot efficiency). Green Sun's Zenith and Drift of Phantasms are generally considered must runs as tutor options for competitive Kinnan lists, but a good number of quality tutor options are available to provide consistency. Incubation Druid+Vigean Graftmage is somewhat popular as another back up 3 card game winning infinite combo line.

Cornelius_1216 on Aminatou: Social Distancing 101

2 weeks ago

Why do you run Teferi, Time Raveler? It means that only you have the option to interact with your opponents, and you are only running three counterspells. Also, why only run three counterspells? Why Counterspell over Mana Drain? Competitive decks, even stax-focused ones, generally should run more than three. Negate, Spell Pierce, Flusterstorm, Fierce Guardianship, Delay, and Force of Negation are all common good ones. Why are you running Windfall but not/instead of Timetwister? I don't see your deck caring about its graveyard. Since you have a subtheme of wheels, why not run Smothering Tithe and Alms Collector? Or Whispering Madness for extra density? Furthermore, you deck needs a real, tangible, hard win condition. Simply locking your opponents is not enough to win at a competitive table. Why not include Demonic Consultation and/or Tainted Pact and Thassa's Oracle and/or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries? Solid wincon that doesn't require long games to win, but works just fine in them.

goldlion Wishclaw Talisman is probably in there because of its interaction with Aminatou. -1 Aminatou targeting Talisman, activate Talisman in response, then Aminatou's flicker resolves. Unlimited tutors that cost {1} apiece. Avarice Totem is bad.

Rorolith on Tap, Untap, and Profit

Without trample or unblockable, infinite power and toughness won't do anything. Off the top of my head Aether Tunnel or Setessan Training would work. Since this is modern, you can cut Negate and add Force of Negation. I think there is a bit too much digging for your pieces in this deck and not enough interaction. AEtherize would be some much needed removal. Misty Rainforest in place of 4xIsland would be really good as well.
