Copy target instant or sorcery spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.

vasarto77 thank you for your suggestions and upvote! Reverberate is in there, I will definitely consider Twincast! Sadly Fork is a tad expensive for me atm… definitely will get it someday! Just a matter of finding something to cut, which shouldn’t be too hard!

you answered your own question "I do understand that copies are not cast" / "if this spell was cast from a graveyard".
also Fritzn is correct "something else to keep in mind is Increasing Vengeance cannot copy itself." the portion that says "you may chose new targets for the copies" can be confusing but to make more sense of it divide the card up by each sentence
Copy target instant or sorcery spell you control.
at this stage you have declared your target and a copy is placed on the stack
If Increasing Vengeance was cast from a graveyard, copy that spell twice instead.
if requirements are met a second copy of "that spell" is placed on the stack
You may choose new targets for the copies.
if you keep in mind the first two sentences have already resolved the target spell to be copied has already been copied and on the stack so you can only choose legal targets of that spell
i hope that helps
p.s. to make Kalamax, the Stormsire infinitely huge simply cast Twincast, Fork, Reiterate, or Reverberate in response to anything one of your opponents cast and as long as kalamax is tapped you can use his copy to loop. but keep in mind none of the combos listed this far will net +1 copy and since copying does not count as casting it does not up storm counts so none of the suggestions on this thread will help your Grapeshot

Yes, you have that right. Narset's Reversal is generally intended to be used on an opponent's spell (they cast Ruinous Ultimatum, you send it back at them—thus the "reversal"), though it could be used on your own in a pinch where you really need to be able to use another spell in your hand more than once.
There are plenty of cards that do what your friend wants here, though. Twincast and Reverberate (and a bunch of similar cards) will both give two extra turns. You would use Imp's Mischief the same way to stop them. Teach by Example would also work, and because of how the effect is different it doesn't actually target. Note though that you need to have Teach by Example resolve and leave the stack BEFORE casting the spell you want to copy.

Hi, Concerning the deck, I have made some changes. One thing I realized is that sometimes control decks can shut me down. So I want to shut them down first, then mercilessly mill them out. :( So that's why Twincast is gone. Also, Scheming Symmetry is kind of not worth it, considering that I have Field of Ruin. So that's an idea. And also a lot of decks have self-search.

Hi! Concerning your card choice, Field of Ruin is definitely worth it. Put it in. Yeah, my job is to mill ASAP. So really, I don't know whether to use Fervent Champion + Sword of Body and Mind or Slither Blade + Sword of Body and Mind or Vantress Gargoyle. As the name suggests, the deck needs to mill as fast as possible. So Vantress Gargoyle doesn't help. I decided to move Twincast into the mainboard. I can maybe double mill using Archive Trap + Twincast .

zapyourtumor You were right, i realized Demilich wasn't doing as much as i thought when it comes to saving mana from its 1st ability & recycling instants/sorceries from the 2nd, as i think Blink of an Eye is better in recycling them. Same case goes for Plague Engineer in the sence of its usefulness overall so took them away. Thing in the Ice Flip is a fantastic card & works well in my instant/sorcery heavy deck. I added it to main, would you recommend having a playset instead of 3? Liliana of the Veil is a pretty cool card & added it to sideboard, might even place it as main after some further paytesting. Thanks for your adivce!
wallisface You were right on my land count, I was commonly facing with landpool issues so i did make my land count higher to 24 and now i dont have that problem anymore. The meta in my city & surrounding areas are really monster-heavy so that was the reason I placed heavy hitting destroy spells such as Damnation but I saw your point, as it could be more of a disadvantage than anything. Took it off the main & added only 1 on sideboard. As for Mishra's Bauble i saw it wasn't doing as much as I anticipated, but then again im a noob at MTG still & i might have been using it wrong. Tbh i dont know why Lurrus of the Dream-Den was there i must have placed it by mistake so took it off lol. In general i switched the sideboard as much as the main in order to be more consistent. Twincast is there just for the lols & it has actually made pretty funny plays, i mean 2 is always better is it not?
In general i appreciate your advice both of you, and let me know what you think on the upgrade i just did. Im a returning player that took like a 10-year hiatus from MTG because life happened and im catching up, & this was a first try to a midrange-control-ish deck that i really want to work and make it as good as can be. Thanks!
