Quote from Yukora »Ok, the following deck has been doing extremely well at my local card shop. Granted, there is almost no Threshold in the metagame around here. So, I'll post it here. If any of ya feel this is viable enough, I'd like for it to be moved to Competitive.

Explanation of cards:
Accumulated Knowledge: Great second EOT when they don't play anything. Late game makes for great card advantage
Brainstorm: Excellent first EOT that really sets up my control. Late game casting helps for a turn-around
Standstill: Have been able to repeatedly stall for a long time while playing Stalking Stones, and capturing their creatures.
Stalking Stones: Couples great with Standstill, and can be a solid sneak creature. I've won games countless times because of this card.
Vedalken Shackles: Bread and butter of the deck, allows for combat tricks, and general disruption of opponent's tempo.
Counterspell: nuff said.
Rewind: Works well with Power Sink, and sets up for another counter, and later turn capture. Also allows for untapping my activated Stalking Stones to serve as a needed blocker.
Power Sink: Couples with Rewind, and is great for disruption. Best "soft" counter out there.
Propoganda: This is the card that's held off threshhold the most. It is a great cast to have against almost all aggro. It's often worth it to cast this after the fifth turn, so that i have counter mana open.
Palinchron: A great creature that is a death knell against most decks that I've run into. After establishing control with shackles, and Propaganda, Palinchron just frustrates a lot of players. I have never had this creature die.
Echoing Truth: Made it into the deck due to shear potential, but has yet to ammount to anything.
Ok, now before any of ya jump on my throats for not running God's gift to counters, know that it's house rules that that sucker is banned. If I go to areas outside of my shop, I'll add them, but for now, I don't have access to them.
I have also lost my sideboard, and as seeing one of my goals tis to make this deck more viable, I would like a few suggested sideboards from ya guys.
I am very open to suggestions, and just need some suggestions from people playing in different metagames.
Quote from Caex KotharAnd yes, no incantatrix for you. Or anyone. That class makes puppies cry. Mostly because they are the former Big Bads who have been Baleful Polymorphed into said puppies. By you. Because you're an incantatrix.

Remember, the girl that just killed an aspect of herself before literally consuming her?
Yeah, I don't see her handling a pissing match in any way other than a duel.

Quote from Concerning breeding habits of humans in fantasy games »I suppose it's true. Though the logistics implied in a human/Great Wyrm Prismatic Dragon pairing makes me shudder.
...Something tells me that even should all arcane casters in the world unite, that the Grease spell would NOT be sufficient.
