About Mental Misstep

Mental Misstep, Instant, designed by Erica Yang first released in May, 2011 in the set New Phyrexia and was printed exactly in 4 different ways. It see play in 2 formats: Vintage and Commander. It's currently being selled by the minimum price of $ 9.41.

This card, Mental Misstep, would be beneficial in a deck that aims to disrupt opponents' early plays by countering low-cost spells, such as combo or control decks that rely on key one-mana spells. However, in certain metagames where one-mana spells are not prevalent, other counterspells like Force of Will or Spell Pierce may be more versatile and impactful. Whether Mental Misstep sees play would largely depend on the specific cards and strategies prevalent in the current metagame.

A card with Phyrexian mana symbols in its mana cost is each color that appears in that mana cost, regardless of how that cost may have been paid.


As you cast a spell or activate an activated ability with one or more Phyrexian mana symbols in its cost, you choose how to pay for each Phyrexian mana symbol at the same time you would choose modes or choose a value for X.


Each Phyrexian mana symbol in a spell’s mana cost contributes 1 to that spell’s converted mana cost. For example, Mental Misstep’s converted mana cost is 1, regardless of how its cost was paid.


Phyrexian mana is not a new color. Players can’t add Phyrexian mana to their mana pools.
