Permission Denied


Counter target noncreature spell. Your opponents can't cast noncreature spells this turn.

Hey man, you need more mana rocks! Consider your guild signets and talismans.

As far as defeating a BW control deck, I'd recommend just running more counter magic. Dovin's Veto & Permission Denied could be good choices! A few more silence effects like Silence, Grand Abolisher & Orim's Chant could go a long way as well.

For your strategy, I'd focus on either infect or +1/+1 counters since the list seems to be a bit "busy" with too much going on. Once you choose which way you'd like to take the deck, we can further tweak - proliferation will still be central to your overall plan.

Here are some suggestions by color that you might want to consider adding to your mainboard:


Heroic Intervention, Nature's Lore, The Great Henge, Three Visits.


Akroma's Will, Flawless Manuever, Smothering Tithe, Teferi's Protection, Trouble in Pairs.


Cyclonic Rift, Fierce Guardianship, Mana Drain, Swan Song.

Permission Denied

I think you can get away with swapping out removing some counter spells as it seems a bit overkill - Cancel, Dispel, Envelop, Negate, and Nullify could probably come out in favor of Fierce Guardianship, Mana Drain, and Swan Song (the others could just be cut).

For your land base, I'd work the following lands in to help with your color wheel:

Fetch Lands: Flooded Strand, Misty Rainforest, Windswept Heath

Filter Lands: Flooded Grove, Mystic Gate, Wooded Bastion

Pathways Lands: Barkchannel Pathway  Flip, Branchloft Pathway  Flip, Hengegate Pathway  Flip

Shock Lands: Breeding Pool, Hallowed Fountain, Temple Garden

Tri-Cycle Land: Spara's Headquarters

True Duals: Savannah, Tropical Island, Tundra

For mana rocks, I prefer the talismans over the signets:

Talisman of Curiosity, Talisman of Progress, Talisman of Unity

I think your Kros, Defense Contractor list is in a good spot, it just needs to be a little more focused.

Azoth2099 How could I forget about Angel's Grace... Thanks! I like Dovin's Veto & Permission Denied BUT Im not sure they are needed at the moment. Then again it needs a lot more play-testing.

chubthrasher Yeah it's honestly busted lol. Angel's Grace & Trickbind are also pretty solid! Also I noticed you're running Render Silent, how do you feel about Dovin's Veto & Permission Denied?
