Pretty fun in a Sygg, River Cutthroat EDH!

Because when you're being a bastard and willing to run higher CMC cards, there's no reason to stop with one: Why not throw in Predatory Advantage as well?

by A0602:
Notice how Painful Quandary only cares when an opponent casts a spell... I think I will counter that spell that you paid 5 life for. It effectively slows them down to a snails pace, all you really have to worry about is what is currently on the field.

And since we're talking about UB control, we might as well bounce anything they do manage to get on the field. Then they get to try and cast it through Painful Quandry again. Only this time you might have a counterspell. Or multiple Quadries. Or a Caress or two.

Build a control deck which wins by simply letting the opponent try to cast spells :)

Dash Hopes becomes entirely more fun with this guy on the field.

The ultimate griefer enchantment.

This card is GAME OVER... Just like that... So overpowered... I can't even imagine what is going on with the Wizards... I remember the time that a Serra Angel was a GREAT card, and the games were so fun :)

Do you think hes watching the shire burn in that scrying pool?

I realize that the Nihil Stone and Liliana's Caress are nice and all, but once Innistrad hits, we'll be relying on this as a killmoar for discard decks. With things like Nyxathid and Hypnotic Specter gone, Nihil Stone has lost its potency in standard. This, however, can hold its own. While it still requires your opponent to act in order to lose, it buys you a significant number of time.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
