PartyJ, I love your primer and use your deck as a template for my own. It’s a pity, that Chains of Mephistopheles, The Abyss, Nether Void and Gaea's Cradle are such expensive pieces of cardboard.

What are your thoughts on Tinybones, Trinket Thief?

Withering Boon, or Thrull Wizard, or Nether Void, or Dash Hopes to counter phage, then retrieve her from the grave to cast her from your hand.

Nice list! Would you say the deck is still worth playing without Nether Void & Chalice of the Void or does it lose too much power?

ABaggins: Mishra works by breaking parity with e.g. Nether Void (you let the spell countering resolve first, then you "search" your graveyard for the same card that you just cast). Don't ask me if that's good enough for high tier tho ¯I_(ツ)_I¯

ProBertels: all partner commanders are rated as if they were optimally partnered, and Tymna tips things in Tana's favor trough an extra color and providing a draw engine (plus, they're both quite a bit cheaper)

Mark Rosewater joined Magic in 1996, from Alliances forward. This means that there are a lot of counter spells in non-blue colors that predate him joining.


Artifact Blast


Red Elemental Blast


Avoid Fate




Nether Void

Stromgald Cabal

Thrull Wizard



Order of the Sacred Torch

There are also a handful of countering abilities in non-blue from pre-Rosewater sets

Richard Garfield had intended colors besides blue to have access to counter spells. Garfield also built the game to have a greater focus on interactions between colors, with hosers such as Tsunami and Acid Rain being another example, or the frequent Protection from X Color cards that are rampant in the early sets. Maro has moved away from viewing the colors as interactions and relationships between colors and towards trying to define the colors in relation to themselves (a la color pie). Whether or not you agree with Garfield's vision for the game or Rosewater's, we can't ignore that Red Elemental Blast predates Rosewater even working for Wizards. Red Elemental Blast also predates Maro's theory of the color pie, which must be applied retroactively to REB.

We also have numerous examples of non-blue counter spells in sets even after Maro started designing cards or even becoming a lead set designer. I think that while counter spells and interacting with spells/abilities on the stack is primarily a blue ability, other colors need to have access to this powerful and necessary tool. While I agree that blue should be the market share, we need closer to 85-90% of counter spells printed as blue, instead of the current ~98%

Oh and Nether Void to I guess

With the IP ban, are you going to slot in Ward of Bones or something like Nether Void? IP was just such a unique stax piece in this deck and the effect is difficult to replace.
