You can, Nammertime, but then the mana wouldn't make the spell uncounterable, since the black mana is different mana than the mana used to produce it. (Essentially, you would spend the 1 from this to produce black.)

i really dont get why people are trying to increase the cost of temporal extortion just so that you can play it uncounterable. If your going to be paying 5 mana for an extra turn why not just use time warp? It takes less cards to combo into it and dosn't require you to pay 2 life.

not bad, and i remember seeing this a lot in tournaments as side board protection

It needs to loose the legendary clause, come into play untapped, tap for colorless mana, get rid of the loss of life part, and be able to tap for any color mana when using its uncounterable ability.

I am joking of course, but the above is whats going on with Cavern of Trolls.

Worthy of sidebourd status, in combo decks that need to have their key spells go off, it can even be worth maindecking this guy.

Actually Mode, based on Obliterate additional ruling you CAN cast counter spells on things that can't be countered but while for example Condescend won't counter anything you still should get your scry 2. Of course it would be stupid to cast pure counter spells on anything that used Boseiju, but things like Condescend, Rewind is not entirely pointless.

Or at least I think that's the way it works.

A very good card. It is only slightly hurt by the CIPT.

Perfect card for the set. kamigawa block constructed was all about control decks...

It's pretty awesome, but I do wish it said something more like.. "add g to your mana pool" and then "you may pay 2 life to add 1 colorless, if that mana is spent on a spell then that spell can't be countered." Still good as it is anyways.
