Deck Overview:

This deck aim is to control the board early with cheap removal and counterspell. The inclusion of Countersquall  is to help both with chipping at life total as well as having a hard counter for non creature spells.

Around the midgame, the deck hopes to stabilizes by building a hand advantage over its opponent with either Ancestral vision , Cryptic Commands, Kolaghan’s Command, or Snapcaster to make use of resources in the graveyard.

The deck’s win condition is simply done through dealing combat damage with either Tasigur, Snapcaster Mage or Creeping Tar Pit after removing all of the opponent’s threats.
