Additionally if the third counter goes on during someone else's turn or you do decide to sit on it, Krosan Grip would make it simply "skip three draws". There are other removal that could hit it at 2 if your meta doesn't run specifically artifact and enchantment removal. Mortify , Putrefy , Anguished Unmaking , Pernicious Deed could all get rid of it. You might even just be collateral damage on an overloaded Cyclonic Rift .

Akromathia, I definitely have Anguished Unmaking in every deck that contains black and white, because of how powerful that card is.

Akromathia on Mortify or Utter End?

4 days ago

Anguished Unmaking is strictly better than Mortify (same speed, same cmc, same specific mana, but a huge difference in possible targets) in EDH, since 3 life in this format is somewhat negligible, making the second a usual bad choice in comparison to Anguished Unmaking (unless you are on a budget).

In terms of Utter End vs Mortify , it is a harder choice to make. The mana difference again is not that meaningful in a format like EDH, but it is always nice to use as little mana as possible when using removal, especially instant speed removal, since the target here is to keep as many options open as possible for threats.

In my opinion Anguished Unmaking is better that Mortify due larger range of possible targets, and is also better than Utter End for the reduced mana cost.

On a side note, white is full of marvelous removal that are more mana efficient than Mortify and almost always better than it. “Path” and “Swords” to name just a couple.

DemonDragonJ on Mortify or Utter End?

I have Mortify in one of my EDH decks (actually, I have it in every deck that contains black and white, but this thread is to discuss only one particular deck), but I am wondering if I should replace it with Utter End , since that card is much more powerful, but it also has a higher mana cost, and I wish to keep the mana curve of my deck low, so I shall ask the other users of this forum for advice about it. Obviously, every deck I have that contains black and white also contains Anguished Unmaking , but I would appreciate the redundancy of utter end.

What does everyone else think? Is Utter End worth the additional 1 mana over Mortify ?

You could consider some of those cheaper Vampires, as you want to cast Suckers as soon as the game starts to trigger Edgar's Eminence ability.

Some that are not mentioned earlier: Blood Artist Tithe Drinker (Extort!)

Mana fixing duals like Painlands ( Battlefield Forge ) or Temples ( Temple of Malice ). Shocklands ( Blood Crypt ) are good too but already a little more expensive.

Also some ramp would be great: Sol Ring Chromatic Lantern Fellwar Stone Signets

Instant/Sorcery: Utter End Anguished Unmaking Vindicate Boros Charm Merciless Eviction Teferi's Protection (Is included in the C17 Edgar Markov deck, so you may have one. Cheaper alternatives: Ghostway or Eerie Interlude . But as these exile and return and not phase your stuff out like Teferi's Protection , you'll lose your tokens with these. And no, none of those will trigger Edgar when theys return, as they are not cast.)

Artifact: Skullclamp

Hey, my suggestions are to improve the manabase. Lands $5 or less each to consider adding:

If playing proxies then add Fetch lands, Shock lands, City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Reflecting Pool , Forbidden Orchard , Glimmervoid , Academy Ruins .

Other cards to consider adding:

Cuts to consider:

  • Meandering River
  • Submerged Boneyard
  • Rupture Spire
  • Temple of the False God
  • Evolving Wilds
  • Terramorphic Expanse
  • Myriad Landscape
  • Akroma, Angel of Wrath
  • Frost Titan
  • Magister Sphinx
  • Oloro, Ageless Ascetic
  • Sphinx of the Steel Wind
  • Sphinx Summoner
  • Finale of Glory
  • Rout
  • Argentum Armor
  • Obelisk of Esper
