Two things.
1) Counterspell on a stick. I was actually banned from playing that deck after a while _._
2) Echoing Truth on a stick. Bye bye tokens!
These days I hear people are putting Silence onto it...

In a red deck pop Reverberate on it to double up all of your damage spells. In a white deck just stick holy day on it and you can prevent any attack.
Amazing card, so many possibilities.

So many instants, so much choice. I don't normally play blue but had a few bits kicking around so built a deck with Twin Cast, Brain Freeze and the sceptre. Amazingly first time out was able to draw two sceptres and imprint Brain Freeze on turn 2, and Twin Cast on Turn 3. Opponent lost 18 cards the first time I used it and 27 cards the second time. Hedron Crab and landfall took care of the rest of his library. I don't expect this behaviour everytime and I suspect there are much more efficient uses the sceptre can be put to, but it was fun.

Isochron Scepter + Boomerang, and a little bit of patience is all you need.
Play it in Turn 2, and in Turn 3 target one of your opponent's Lands. Repeat over and over, and they will be permanently stuck on (at most) 2 lands while you slowly pull out more of your own. Just hope that your opponent isn't playing a weenie deck, I suppose...

Hey, there's a reason this card is 5 quid, it really is good, cheap instants are usually good for drawing cards, or putting counters on creatures

This card should be reclassified as rare :)

Stick Fork on it and you can copy any instant or sorcery played over and over

I *think* (I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong) this is awesome to use with Splice. If you imprint a cheap Arcane spell - Blessed Breath, Vital Surge, Otherworldly Journey or Soulless Revival would be good bets - you can play that card over and over, and splice anything else in your hand onto it, getting all the effects without ever actually losing a card :)

That, and any Spirit with a 'Whenever you play a Spirit or Arcane spell...' ability should get triggered every time you trigger the imprinted card...

What can I say, I came from Wayland's forge and have been there for some time, eventually starting my own D&D session being a DM. The tables provided with the number of players in my group wasn’t to my liking at Waylands, as it didn’t scale well with my group. Which, is understandable with the store giving priority to larger groups (My group consist of 4 players and me as DM and most other group are 6 people). This is when I contacted ManaLeak.Com Birmingham and to my surprise, one of the staff wholesomely greeted me and made me felt welcomed. Telling me that the store caters for D&D, MTG and other hobbyist traditional games, I took it to have a check with my group and book in one of the weeks. The following week, we were welcomed by friendly faces telling me the reserved table was and that refreshment were there for us. This wasn’t needed but I admire the admiration that is placed for new customers, and that my friends felt comfortable knowing that they can have something to eat whiles easing into a new environment. The store in the early afternoon is peaceful and relaxing, when it does get late, people in the store respects others presence which makes the atmosphere peaceful. The tables are must larger which helps me keep track of items instead of putting it under the table like I use to, chairs are comfortable and what I really appreciate is that there’s space so that everyone doesn’t feel cramped. Now I go there weekly with my friends, knowing a table is to our liking, were not cramped and can move tables if I feel that it’s an issue without being told off. There’s an archive full of MTG cards, if we felt like buying the singles if we wanted to play a quick MTG game and that I don’t have to shout over others to be heard as the store is quite large. A bonus is that I never felt the need to worry about snacks, drinks and light food as the store has a variety of items that are well priced to buy. One of the day this week my friend had a birthday so we thought that ordering a pizza whiles playing D&D would be great. I told the staff a day prior and he was more than happy to allow it, this was great because like I mentioned before the tables being large worked well for food we ordered which was pizzas. That was a good day and that wouldn’t happen without the store being generous, that’s why I am happy to recommend this store to anyone who are interested in TCG, board games, D&D and other games. I want to thank especially Tu Manaleak Nguyen, for helping me and my friend be regular customers.
Really great service - from the comprehensive information on the website to the well packaged MTG cards when they arrived. The free cards I received when part of my order was delayed speaks volumes for the customer service Manaleak provides. Just placed my second order, and I'm sure there'll be many more. Thank you.
As I sit here drinking my tea and writing this short review, I look at my (recently used) Chaos Predator tank and reminded myself about my game that was played at in Birmingham... The exterior is, infact misleading, and upon entering the complex, the interior was as if I entered an office! Climbing up the stairs and following the signs, I finally arrive at; the place was lovely and spacious, full of refreshments and essentials needed for all sorts of games, be it tabletop or card games! Store manager was pretty cool, allowed me and a friend to play a game of Warhammer 40k (even took photos of the game, swell guys!) but I suppose what has impressed me is their knowledge and awesomeness, as well as the atmosphere - which was pretty cool... Service was pretty good too, I might add! I'd highly recommend to all sorts of people, even if it’s just a catch up with some friends or (in my case!) battling over tabletop supremacy!!!
