dingusdingo on Best Counterspells in Commander?

2 weeks ago

Blue

Your very top tier auto-include for lists is going to look like

Your situational includes are going to look like

Other blue stuff is usually just too expensive. Paying over 2 mana for a counterspell just doesn't cut it when there are so many threats for so cheap. Don't pay more than 2 for a counterspell unless it does something wild on top. Counterspells with fewer restrictions on what it can counter are going to be better.

Other Colors

This is where it gets saucy boys

  • Red Elemental Blast Pyroblast are VERY good. In a pod, there is almost definitely blue at the table. Every single red deck can slot these for commander without fear. Do note that REB works against any spell that includes blue (multicolor), while pyro only works against spells that are ONLY blue (monocolor).
  • Fork Reverberate (Twincast) these allow you to copy a counterspell to create a counterspell. More access for red to counterspells. They also conveniently work very well against tutors, ramp, big draw spells, and extra turn spells.
  • Guttural Response Weird hybrid color and somewhat restricted but still a good include in most RG decks.
  • Burnout a bit worse then the elemental blasts as it costs 2 mana and it is limited. The cantrip is nice though
  • Mana Tithe not that good in EDH but give it a whirl I guess
  • Lapse of Certainty costing 3 hurts, but this is more a tempo card than anything.
  • Dash Hopes Don't play this card in EDH lol
  • Withering Boon on the chunkier end at 2 CMC, but in a color that doesn't get much of this. The 3 life and the restriction hurt, but definitely EDH playable. Every deck runs a commander, 99% of which are creatures
  • Imp's Mischief can counter a spell by having it target Mischief, as can Misdirection Shunt Swerve and Ricochet Trap.
  • Veil of Summer 1 mana green Cryptic Command
  • Autumn's Veil Counterspell + silence against UB
  • Bind I bet you didn't even know this card existed. Cantrips. GOOD IN THE YISAN MIRROR MATCH?
  • Avoid Fate Weird protection oriented counterspell
  • Nether Void Mostly ran in stax builds, brutal lockout card
  • Planar Chaos One of my new favorite cards. Brutal with recursion like Hall of Heliod's Generosity. Play when you're ahead
  • Deathgrip Lifeforce These are based if you have any method of color shifting. Realistically, you could run Lifeforce in Momir Hackball. These cards can cause scoops on casual tables lol.
  • Vexing Shusher can render counterspells useless. Similarly, Dosan the Falling Leaf Grand Abolisher Prowling Serpopard Gaea's Herald can all protect against counterspells. Far more marginal but still worthwhile are Hall of Gemstone and Ritual of Subdual for turning off counterspells for opponents.

Xephon_ on Would copying a spell count ...

1 month ago

What Kogarashi said is correct, but additionally, note that if the spell cast to create the copy was a non-creature spell (ex: Dualcaster Mage is a creature, whereas Twincast is a non-creature spell) Kykar, Wind's Fury would trigger.

So here, Kykar is triggering for casting the spell which copies, not the spell that is copied.

Mission Briefing , Twincast could be a good budget option to replace Snapcaster Mage

DemonDragonJ on Riku's Reflection and Riku's Replicant

2 months ago

I recently have become very fond of Riku of Two Reflections , so I have designed two signature spells for him, as seen, below:

Riku's Reflection Show

This spell was inspired by Nature's Chant , which is a combination of Naturalize and Disenchant , and is strictly better than both of them. It is a combination of Twincast and Reverberate , being strictly better than both of them.

Riku's Replicant Show

This card is a variant of Clone , but with a more flexible casting cost.

Obviously, both of these cards are designed to be used with Riku, himself, so what does everyone else think of them?

DemonDragonJ on Copying a Spell with Kicker

2 months ago

If a player casts a spell with kicker (and, for the sake of simplicity, I shall use Burst Lightning as an example), and then copies it (such as with Twincast ), will the copy be kicked?

Miniroux on 52 mill pickup

2 months ago

I like the Twincast idea. Have you tried Mission Briefing ? Could re-cast Archive Trap for 0 and the surveil 2 is a nice plus!

Gilbobaggins on 52 mill pickup

2 months ago

Twincast copies Archive Trap if fraying sanity is in play and Archive Trap resolves I cast twincast for 52 card mill.

I use the elixir of immortality incase I need to reup my library. But I have noticed i dont use it that often. So eventually I will be swapping it out. Fatal Push will probably be the choice to replace elixir.

As for Mesmeric Orb I dont like the idea of milling myself. Granted it's a nice card.
