Thing in the Ice

Creature — Horror


Thing in the Ice enters the battlefield with four ice counters on it.

Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, remove an ice counter from Thing in the Ice. Then if it has no ice counters on it, transform it.

Yea idk, not saying your points aren’t valid but I’m not convinced. I’m a black player at heart so a little bit of damage doesn’t scare me. Especially when this deck runs Delver of Secrets  Flip and Thing in the Ice  Flip for a board state. What your comment does make me weary of, is maybe I need better grave yard hate? Any suggestions in that department?

Like I said I already have 2 U/W decks built in paper so making a 3rd really isn’t that appealing to me and I would assume you agree white is the best color splash for control?

In: 20 total cards! 1. Primal Rage, 2. Winged Boots, 3. Darksteel Plate, 4. Panglacial Wurm, 5. Sundial of the Infinite, 6. Diabolic Vision, 7. Inventors' Fair, 8. Thespian's Stage, 9.

With this new design, we're looking to keep Jorn alive longer and deal more damage. There's also more ways to summon Marit Lage and pump up snow creatures. The mana base is smoothed out with more snow lands, and more card draw / ramp cards. Let me know what you think of the new brew!

Delphen7 Thanks for citing those creatures, I forgot that Thing in the Ice  Flip existed, it's a must have card imo. Nivmagus Elemental looks decent, gonna try it.

I ran a mono blue aggro list for a very long time that's decently powerful, the win con was Nivmagus Elemental. It involved lots of free spells like Snapback, March of Swirling Mist, Disrupting Shoal and Flusterstorm to grow Blistercoil out of nowhere and some other aggressive critters. Judge's Familiar, Thing in the Ice  Flip, and Delver of Secrets  Flip are the most notable of those

Nevermind, Thing in the Ice  Flip doesn't have an ETB, it's a replacement effect, therefore doesn't use the stack and can't be responded to. My bad

If I cast Thing in the Ice  Flip and it sticks, the ETB that puts counters on it goes on the stack. If I then respond to the ETB by casting any instant, the triggered ability gets put on the stack and attempts to remove a counter, but since the ETB still hasn't resolved by this point there are no counters on it, so it transforms.

This seems too OP to be true, so please correct me if I'm wrong.

GeminiSpartanX can you send me a decklist of what you have and ill let you know. theres a couple of flex spots that i have. like, i would like mine to have Delver of Secrets  Flip in it as well as Thing in the Ice  Flip also, Dress Down is a big deal for me as well, but I can make those changes myself as long as you have the majority of the pieces.

I've got no specific ideas but some general things. I'm not sure what your wincon is. I'm assuming its attacking with a creature, but with only nine in the main, that feels way too low. Consider Delver of Secrets  Flip, and maybe bumping up to a full playset of Thing in the Ice  Flip. All of your instants and sorceries are are at 2x-3x, you've got no playsets. Definitely look at adding some and cutting others, maybe a full set of Izzet Charm, which are flexible, as well as Opt/Consider. Manawise, if you can run the full set of Fabled Passage, they can help fuel your Treasure Cruise delve a bit. You're curve is fairly low, you could possibly go down to 19-20 lands. If you're having manafixing issues, look at Stormcarved Coast and Riverglide Pathway  Flip. I don't have a lot of pioneer experience, so this comes from just my general experience with deckbuilding. I hope it helps.
