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.

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.

Oh sorry--just realized Thing in the Ice  Flip is not budget.

Thoughts on Homarid, Colossal Whale, Reef Worm, Thing in the Ice  Flip?

Got rid of Lawmage's Binding. Need a wincon with all of these counterspells. Hardly ever had in my hand Thing in the Ice  Flip early enough. Izzet Charm was great for draw, and Deliberate has amazing art as well as great for drawing. Azorius Charm I'm not sure about. Senate Guildmage was lots of fun, but is really not that great.

Hi! Sorry. I was very busy with school. I had competitions and also end-of-quarter projects.

You are definitely right. I'm thinking of bombing them down with things like Thoughtseize and Surgical Extraction. It's all about control. If you can paralyze them, it doesn't matter how long it takes to finish them off.

I am more of a control guy. I built a modern azorius deck that I am still revising. Yes, magic is for FUN! That's why I play magic. Also, I may move Thing in the Ice  Flip in the main if Thoughtseize and Surgical Extraction comes along. Does that work?

Removed Izzet Charm, Mana Leak and Slither Blade and Thing in the Ice  Flip and Electrostatic Field. Now I have a Boros manabase. Much better. Added the forthcoming Monastery Mentor, Soulfire Grand Master, and I think that Gideon's Sacrifice will be useful. Removed Shock and Lightning Strike. Replaced with 4x Lava Spike.

cjkalmar I had Delver of Secrets  Flip in the original list, but Thing in the Ice  Flip ended up being better
