    If force of will is the best counterspell why isn’t this the best discard spell?

    • Marvin Sürig

      Well it’s easier to pay 1 mana than exil a card from your hand for a discard deck. Black discard is all about card advantage to hinder your opponent to play cards. Meaning if you loose 2 cards for just one card in hand its bad. best discard spells are cheap and discard between two and one card for low cost. Meaning you force you opponent to trade two cards for one.

      Force of Will is pretty strong because if you play with counters its to protect something (maybe a combo piece or a big creature) and when you do the opponent plays his win condition or other dangerous cards which are bad for you when you have no mana to use anymore meaning force of will is that one last resort you need of your outtapped ;)

      Hope this helped^^

        can’t the same be said for unmask? it helps to counter supreme verdict or abrupt decay.

        • Mr.Mayhem631

          Unmask can whiff, and Unmask can only hit things currently in their hand.

      It is.

        vintage and legacy still prefer Thoughtseize unless you are using one of the mana/land less decks

        • Jakub S.

          Yes, metagame favors thoughtseize now. But this is the only “free” direct discard.
          Unmask is the best, just waiting for the right deck :-))))

    Why is this lore related? Not hating just curious

    • HighPriest

      I think it was a reference to Volrath being, well, unmasked in the Mercadian Masques story line. Which I don’t really recall too well, to be honest.
