MTGO player ice_nine_ took this Boros Prison deck to a 5-0 finish in a Modern League, sailing (we assume) over an ocean of salty tears.

Of course, every prison or land destruction deck is going to make some opponents frustrated. But not every list is running four copies of this one-mana counterspell:

There are few things in this world as painful as having your spell countered because the land you needed to pay for Mana Tithe died to Stone Rain last turn. Absolutely brutal.

...so, wanna inflict that on your opponents?
