Past in Flames is such an unfair card.

maybe I'm missing something but why is cabal therapy better then thoughtseize/duress? I don't see how you ever flash it back.

@struikje: Ritual, Ritual, Sac Lotus Petal, Past in Flames, Flashback Therapy. ezpz.

I was asking myself the same thing. I only see Gitaxian Probe, but in most cases Thoughtseize/Duress would do the same thing, only that they also do it without the probe. Maybe you want to name Force anyway cause all the Time cause you win if the don't have it i guess.
by struikje on 2012-08-16 11:40 CET
so it is better when they have 2 forces and thats all?

3rd deck is better than 2nd ans still busted unfortunately.

In most Games, Cabal Ritual just reads like: "Discard target FoW and all cards with the same name". And well, in matchups without FoW you still have the possibility to do 2 by 1's, also nice. Its strictly better than TS, by far.

Therapy turns Gitaxian Probe into a cantripping Thoughtseize. That never really came up, so I think I want Thoughtseize instead. The life loss is actually relevant, since Ad Nauseam only wins you the game if you have enough life to draw enough cards with it. In fact, I never cast Ad Nauseam against Delver because they were just too fast.
by pg8 on 2012-08-16 16:42 CET
Therapy is also better than Thoughtseize after you resolve Ad Nauseam, since you never have more than 4 life to spare and you almost always have a Probe to spare. Of course, at that point discard is just about irrelevant since they should have Mindbreak Trapped your Ad Nauseam anyway.

Finally, there is very rarely more than 1 individual card that can actually beat you, and Therapy is either 2 discards spells or an assurance that you can go off. Against Maverick, it names Thalia. Delver, Force of Will (or Spell Snare if you know they have it, but it's rare).

Cabal Therapy can take out multiple Humilities
by pg8 on 2012-08-16 21:18 CET
Humility is insane against ANT.
by pg8 on 2012-08-16 21:18 CET
(and DonDiggy is right, Thoughtseize can't beat 2 Thalias)

What many players may think..
by pg8 on 2012-08-18 07:06 CET
Who wins on the first turn? If ANT won on the first turn, why would it play discard?
by Steveman on 2012-08-18 17:14 CET
Go be hipster somewhere else please
by Terri on 2012-08-19 14:54 CET
i thought poeple play 4 duress in ANT and if they need more than 4 discard spells they just fill it up with inquisition or may be thoughtseize.
by Steveman on 2012-08-19 17:56 CET
Inquisition can't take out FoW
by pg8 on 2012-08-19 18:24 CET
Duress can't take out Teeg
by voltoaomundo on 2012-08-20 09:16 CET
I play TES irl. ANT seems to have a better mana base but it is much harder to go off turn 1-2 against something like Show and Tell when you need to. Orims chant and silence also time walk against maverick.
