Bontu's Last Reckoning Discussion

floose, If I were to play pox, I would go for this build. Mac's 8rack Pox My old build just had Dismember instead of Bontu's Last Reckoning. I'd be okay trying 22 lands, but I have been screwed before without enough mana, that's why I think 23-24 is the right number for pox builds.

Thanks ethan.lindenberger

My approach would be Unsummon followed by Lay Bare the Heart - disrupting planned play. The biggest problem that I have had is against creature-heavy agro decks and if you get to start the game, then Harsh Scrutiny - Lay Bare the Heart might be better. You want to be 1 step ahead of play and I just felt that Unsummon doesn't really allow you to catch up with what your opponent is throwing out onto the field, but rather only delays things by 1 turn.

By turn 3 you should have either a Bontu's Last Reckoning or a Fraying Sanity in your hand. If you don't have fraying sanity - at least wipe your opponent's creature attack from the board. If I start with the right combination of cards in hand, to win turn 5 or 6 is never a problem. You just don't consistently draw a winning hand and have to be able to disrupt your opponent's plans.

I still need to work out how to fit a Diabolic Tutor or two into this deck.

I'd like to suggest Bontu the Glorified. Now hear me out: Grixis Control is a very powerful deck in Standard, and I haven't seen a single one that doesn't play at least 1 copy of Hour of Devastation . That spell in itself can clear your board of horse tokens. What Bontu does in a board-wipe situation, wether it be from HoD or Bontu's Last Reckoning, is this: abuse the mana ability to drain you opponent, gain life, and fix your next draw. I'm not saying you need Bontu in your life, but it's a suggestion as a SB card for when you're up against Control (unless you already have an answer to Control I just failed to see, in which case good job and ignore little old me, lol).

I like this. A lot. I think you got a great idea, I do however think mana-managing will be the hardest part of this deck. Most times you might find that if you're spending mana on your turn you'll fall behind. Also I would think a Bontu's Last Reckoning in the sideboard might help you in a lot of games.

I and no one local caught the mana for color aspect of Crypt of the Eternals. I need to "RTFC" better. Bontu's Last Reckoning helped in the game I edged out temur energy. Board wipes and hand hate like Lay Bare the Heart to tear out dangerous cards?

So, this starts slow. As most experienced MTG deck builders will tell you, this deck has too high of a mana curve. FNM tweaked it a bit from a suggestion playing against another standard work in progress deck.

Went 1-3. Lost to spirit tribal 0-2, didn't even scratch it playing a practice 3rd game. Next played red burn/agro, went 1-2, taking him down only when he mulliganed down to 4 cards.

Beat a Bolas the deceiver deck 2-1. Of note, this deck can cycle on two lands, but only just, edging out the non-cycle deck by going through cards and getting to lands and useful small spells faster.

Lost the final round to temur energy, 1-2.

Vile Manifestation grows very quickly, and is a bigger threat than I initially realized. I've added creature removal in Fatal Push and Bontu's Last Reckoning, also trading out all the Shadow of the Grave, a Curator of Mysteries, a Archfiend of Ifnir, and New Perspectives for the Wasteland Scorpion and the Nimble Obstructionist. Razaketh's Rite seems nearly useless, as when I'm casting it, I need to be casting the archfiend instead, or some other jankiness.

So, will update the card list in the deck and post how effective the updates are for HOU showdown.

How did Bontu's Last Reckoning test out, i thought i looked like a good idea on such a low curve what did you think?

Thank you Toxic5pikes!! Bontu's Last Reckoning will absolutely go in the sideboard, I just haven't even bothered with a sideboard yet as i want to streamline the main. I'm thinking of cutting the whole energy thing in total and going for hand disruption as my turn 2 play and sitting on my removal. Not entirely sure, but i do know i need to play more lands and desert cards to really make Hour of Promise be as amazing as it is.
