Lunashine forgot these:

counter - 15
counters - 6
countered - 2
(can't be countered ftw!!)

yes I indeed forgot them, I dont want to list obvious things like elves, humans and counters. They are granted stuff thats in every expansion. the "countered - 2" is spellcrasher behemoth, its allready spoiled.

I try to find stuff thats unusual, the thopter for example. My guess is the esper artifact beeing something like remnant of riddles or what not, producing thopters. if its cheap it could be cool for esper aggro.
