Just want to say that Angel_Bob's little guide here is something I really like seeing on interesting cards, so good on him.

I would like to add that you might think a canny player will catch on and just stop responding to your unrelated removal play. In which case, you've just stopped them responding to your removal! That's still a great outcome.

This isn't not a good card.

I do not believe many of you are realizing the full utility of this card. It's more than justified, as I didn't until more recent times, and I was running them. It's WAY better than just a cancel that hits Cascades. Follow me on an...


Setup: Your a red player, right? Sure you are, as to play this your at least playing red blue. So what else you got in there? Lightning Bolt? OF COURSE YOU DO! Searing Flames? Darn tootin'! These are of course, Instants, like so many great red burns. Why does this matter? They go on a stack! In fact, played right, they CREATE A STACK from NOTHING.

Example 1:
Opponent: I play a Hedron Crab.
YOU: In response, I Lightning Bolt you.
Opponent: In response, I Cancel your Lightning Bolt.
YOU: In response, Double Negative, targeting your Hedron Crab and Cancel.

See what happened? We use our Instant in response to an unrelated play to goad a player into burning a reactive card, which we then Double Negative to kill both the unr... (see all)

Double Negative DOES counter cascade. And if you cascade a cascader, then the third thing you cascade is safe, etc.

Double Negative doesn't get to counter two spells that often. People rarely play spells in reaction to their own spells. Maybe there is some combo with it for the Izzet guild...

Yo Dawg, I heard you like counters, so I put a counter on your counter so you can counter while you counter!

This card's a riot in multiplayer, where you can sit back and wait for two players get into some kind of complicated back-and-forth instant-speed smashfest, wait for it... wait for it... *BAMPF* Double Negative.

Then sit back, grin, and adopt your Mom voice. "If you two can't play nicely together, you can't play at all..."

I have a Standard RUG Werewolves deck.
Can we have this instead of Dissipate?
No wait, instead of Cancel please!
