Hey, nice casual budget version, but are undying creatures other than Mikaeus and Flayer really worth it?

Consider more enablers to get +1/+1 counters on your creatures?

If you're going for an attacking strategy then consider a few more fliers that have some added value when they die or when they ETB?

Bloodtracker + Sword of Hours is a nice interaction. Some sac outlets are helpful to sac creatures who have counters to get their die or ETB triggers.

You have several high CMC creatures here, more reanimation and enablers could help.

Olivia, Mobilized for War is a +1/+1 counter enabler and an enabler for reanimation.


Some cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Redirect says "spell", and Noxious Gearhulk does not target anything when being cast as a spell. it's ability is a triggered ability that won't trigger until after the spell has resolved and the gearhulk is on the field.

Also one question can Redirect take control of other creature the have to word target in them such at Noxious Gearhulk because so could I take control it with Redirect if it was on the stack.

enpc is correct
copy's target is the spell on the stack not the spell in the hand
so the value of x is what ever it was when it was placed on the stack

p.s.s i forgot to mention in my earlier post
Redirect can stop a Dovin's Veto
But Counterspell can stop every other card in the deck

the function of redirecting as a hole is amazing in red
but limited in blue because blue has to many cards that would out perform a redirect card in almost every situation

Example: As enpc & SynergyBuild Both suggested Misdirection which is no doubt the best value you can find for this function in blue.
any situation you could cast Misdirection you could also cast Force of Will , or Redirect vs Counterspell
as were in reds Deflecting Swat the runners up would be Bolt Bend & Ricochet Trap making the choice cut n dry

but like you said "Situationally might be better than a counterspell" the answer is yes there are some situations were redirect would out perform counter spells, key words there are "some" as most red players will testify most situations redirect spells sit as a dead card in your hand were a counter would have been the answer.

As for how good it is in EDH? I don't think it's good. Narset's Reversal is essentially the same thing while being more versatile since it can turn any instant or sorcery to your advantage whereas Redirect only works on certain spells. Keeping up for a situational counterspell isn't generally worth it. Deflecting Swat is mostly only used because it's generally free. If not, it can be cast in a pinch.

The best cards to Redirect would be extra turn spells. Nothing feels better than ripping off a Time Stretch . Redirecting removal targeting your stuff to someone else is a great way to unbalance a game in your favor, too. You can also steal Peer into the Abyss .

Thoughts on Redirect in EDH? I'm thinking in addition to redirecting a burn spell aimed at you, countering a counterspell (by directing it at Redirect) you can use it to draw cards off an opponents Return of the Wildspeaker , etc. Situationally might be better than a counterspell. Am I missing something?
