Cards i really like for the deck are Deadeye Navigator, Kiora Bests the Sea God, Rune-Scarred Demon, Soul Herder, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling. A lot of cards i do like but didnt put in top 5 cause i think its like your preference on fav ETB triggers you wanna add.

Cards in the maybeboard i dont think should go in are, Baleful Strix, Angel of Despair, Ashen Rider, Render Silent, Disinformation Campaign and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth. Also Wishclaw Talisman will only be really good if you have repeatable ways to flicker it probably at instant speed, and Thassa's Oracle you will only want if youre going for a combo finish with her.

Really like what you've put together here!!! I was thinking of building an Ephara deck awhile back, but decided against it because I couldn't wrap my head around how to make a new type of build. Bravo! Two counterspells I'd recommend (not sure what they're priced at right now)are Faerie Trickery to put a slightly more permanent stop to some board wipes, and Render Silent. Also, a land I'd recommend would be Foundry of the Consuls for a little extra creature cover. I recently added a copy to my Renata deck for some flying cover and it has come in surprisingly handy, even saving my butt a few times!

enpc on Best Counterspells in Commander?

It entirely depends on what you're playing against. If you're going up against creature heavy metas, you want counterspells that can deal wiht more options. But if you're mainly just trying to stop a player from comboing off (or protecting your combo), cheap, non-creature counterspells are the way to go.

And generally at higher levels of play, Cryptic Command doesn't get run - 4 CMC and trip blue are just too high a price.

As a general rule though, Swan Song is an auto-include in most control decks, Muddle the Mixture is good if it can interact with your win condition (i.e. if you're packing Isochron Scepter/Dramatic Reversal or similar) and Flusterstorm as mentioned is strong.

If this isn't for cEDH, then Disallow and Render Silent are some cards I would lean into since they give you catchall answers. Don't forget you also have stuff like Silence and even Orim's Chant which aren't counterspells but can be used to shut players out of a turn. I also like Mindbreak Trap against storm. It's expensive as far as counterspells go but it's also really good at shutting down uncounterable stuff.

Also worth mentioning, if you're looking to pack a bunch of counterspells, you should also have a proportionally high amount of card draw, especially if you're playing a control deck. Becuase most counterspells are one-for-one, without a good card draw engine you will quickly flounder.

GeminiSpartanX on Best Counterspells in Commander?

Hello all!

I'm simply asking which are the best counterspells available in EDH. I have a UW somewhat-controlling deck, and I want to make sure the last few counterspell slots I have (roughly 12 or so in total) are better than other possible options. I know that Force of Will, Force of Negation, and Mana Drain are the best, followed closely by Pact of Negation, the OG- Counterspell, Cryptic Command, and then possibly Negate or Dovin's Veto. My question is which ones do you choose after those? Here are some that I've run before:

Swan Song

Dispel

Spell Pierce

Arcane Denial

Archmage's Charm

Muddle the Mixture

Delay

Deprive -(when you also run Mystic Sanctuary)

Disdainful Stroke

Stubborn Denial

Render Silent

Disallow

Which of these would make the cut in a deck that cared both about the overall quality of the counter as well as the efficiency (cmc) of the counter? Are there any more that I've missed that are worth mentioning? Please let me know which ones (4-5) you would use after the initial 8 that I mentioned! (P.S.- I know we're talking about blue counterspells here, so please be kind even if it's the type of magic that you don't like).

Too many 1/2-ofs.

I think you want 6 discard spells, mixing Thoughtseize and Thought Erasure . You also definitely want 3-4 Fatal Push .

Drown in the Loch , Utter End , Render Silent and Murderous Cut seems like cards that are often pretty bad; I think you should either go all in on Absorb , or consider Sinister Sabotage or Void Shatter for easier color requirements.

Also - badly wants Narset, Parter of Veils , and some number of wraths.

Cheers!

Hi! Fellow Pioneer lover. I run a more aggressive, traditional spirits list, but I think your more midrange oriented list is cool too! I had a few thoughts though...

The maindeck Rest in Peace and Eidolon of Rhetoric are hyper specific answers. You probably don't want them main deck, they're just not going to do anything in most situations. If you're desperate to have maindeck graveyard hate for some reason, Remorseful Cleric is a little more reasonable generically.

Supreme Verdict in not probably a great pick for a deck that wins with a wide board of creatures. I appreciate that you want a sweep, but Settle the Wreckage is probably more the effect you're looking for. I know that you can 'combo' verdict with Selfless Spirit , but there's no need to force yourself to find a combo.

Render Silent probably isn't the counterspell you're looking for; it's expensive with low upside. Spell Pierce is more traditional, but if you're trying for a longer game, maybe Absorb is more what you want. The hardest matchups are aggressive decks and decks full of removal, so life gain is pretty relevant text.

Archangel Avacyn  Flip is a common include for slightly larger spirit decks, as Teferi, Time Raveler . You might also get value out of a few Bygone Bishop .

In jeskai colors? There isn’t much tbh. Unless you want to Pili-Pala Grand Architect which you’re already doing. Maybe stalling is your best bet. If you have access to Rewind or maybe Absorb Render Silent or Dovin's Veto Familiar's Ruse and Archaeomancer for infinite answers to countering stuff
