Quote from GPash »Yeah, that deck looks super sweet. Have a sb? I imagine you'd need some out to Chalice of the Void. Really like some of the spicy tech cards (GM).
Quote from Wraithpk »Archmage's Charm, have they finally made a Cancel with enough upside to be Modern playable? Seems like an interesting card.
Quote from MrTzoulis »Counterspell is so muxh more than a 4-off in UWx control. It's going to help every conceivable blue deck, from Aggro/Tempo to Combo. It can be played in the SB of merfolks (or main), Knightfall, Delver Strategies etc. Hell, Blue Tron might even play it.
For years the community has been crying thare are no efficient answers in modern to combat degenerate decks (spell based or not and big mana decks) and, arguably, Counterspell is one of those tha will mostly push fair strategies to the forefront.
As for UW control being boring that wins by Teferi's emblem: a) That's extremely subjective and irrelevant to Counterspell's viability in the format and b)extremely untrue, especially post WAR.
