Burning Wish Discussion
2 months ago
I'm in the process of brewing a new EDH deck around the recently released Anje Falkenrath precon deck. I would like to somewhat keep the Madness theme but I would like to try my hand at using cards like Karn, the Great Creator , Mastermind's Acquisition , and Burning Wish that can retrieve cards from the little known 10 card sideboard you have for commander. I have some ideas but I still wanted to see if this list I have could be improved upon. Anyway, here's the 10 sideboard cards I was leaning toward right now.
Ruination bomb against multi-colored decks
Leyline of the Void anti-recursion
The Immortal Sun anti-superfriends
Painful Quandary Control and infinite combo hate
Thought Distortion My favorite counter control card
Mob Rule A game winner with creature heavy decks
In Garruk's Wake A potential win con
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled anti-tutor card
Whip of Erebos Best black lifegain card
Anyway, that's the 10 I'm leaning toward right now. I think you see that I'm looking for the best "bomb" cards in red, black, and colorless that will shutdown certain commander archetypes but in the mainboard, they would just sacrifice versatility and consistency. Those are the kind of suggestions I'm looking for if that makes sense.

Ferrahk you may be right, I will typically create a sideboard for casual play with friends for cards like Burning Wish . Feel free to tweak the build with or without :) I'm currently mostly playing the speedboard 1v1 version of this... It's pretty dominant. The key is really expensive lands, rocks and 1/2 CMC removal / counter magic :)
Thanks for stopping by!

You didn't answer his question. The real answer is yes AND no.
Cards that give you cards work by giving you cards from "outside the game" ( Burning Wish ) work as cdkime described. They are actually taking cards not in any zone of the game, and giving you access to them. As stated before me, in competitive play you can only grab cards from your sideboard, while in casual play you can bring any card you own into the game (that you can get without leaving the building, obviously).
Most cards with this effect use the phrasing: "Choose a (type) card you own from outside the game, and put into (X zone)." It is sometimes phrased different for multiple cards, like on Spawnsire of Ulamog .
However, there are a lot of old cards that were printed saying things like "remove target creature from the game." (Old Swords to Plowshares) This "removed from the game" was replaced with the Exile zone, and all cards that were printed with this text have been errata'ed to say Exile ( Swords to Plowshares ).
Since you asked about "removed from the game" rather than "outside the game" I take it that that was your question, so, yes, "removed from the game" is the same as exile, even though exile is now part of the game.

Thanks! Let me know how that budget deck works out for you. I’m still wanting to refine it. Yeah, the wishboard is technically no longer a thing in EDH, but my playgroup is fine with it so it stays. Luckily Mastermind's Acquisition functions as another Diabolic Tutor , but you could replace Burning Wish with something from the wishboard or another tutor. Personally I’d keep Insurrection depending on your meta. I’ve won more games with that than anything else in the wishboard. But the deck will never suffer from more tutors since it will just make finding answers to situations that much more consistent. Glad you like my decks!

I was looking for the wierdest Magic cards in Google, and stumbled with this magnificence. But I also think you're missing some good stuff:
- Chaos Orb : demands physical interaction with the game
- Shahrazad : the card that created
- Divine Intervention : 8 mana to just tie
- Floral Spuzzem :
- Goblin Game
- Furnace of Rath
- Shared Fate
And then there are the cards that make you play cards from outside the game:
- Mastermind's Acquisition
- Burning Wish
- Coax from the Blind Eternities
- Cunning Wish
- Death Wish
- Glittering Wish
- Golden Wish
- Karn, the Great Creator
- Living Wish
- Ring of Ma'ruf
- Spawnsire of Ulamog
Hope any of these cards work for your list!

Also, the wish sideboard concept is just brilliant. Now, modern Tron can use s colorless wish sideboard with the printing of Karn, the Great Creator . I also put him in my legacy mono red Sneak Attack deck, because I can wish for Blightsteel Colossus , Painter's Servant and then Grindstone , etc. Show and tell uses Cunning Wish for their sideboard, and I've never understood how that card's not banned. I'm pretty sure a red deck used to run Burning Wish in legacy as well, I just haven't seen it around in forever.

Spyrechild I've been running almost the same list as above, with a few changes to my meta (wich is really needed with this deck).
The wishes being banned I don't think is the end of the world. I rarely used them in the first place and often Mastermind's Acquisition went for a card in my deck. That being said, I would probably go for the following:

I do like the idea of Quicksilver Amulet since I may be able to put some of my angels out a little earlier, although I actually do pretty alright with mana ramp.
I should probably put in Reforge the Soul since another wheel would be a good idea. As for Burning Wish it seems like a good card, although I wouldn’t really know what other sorcery cards I could have in the side board for it.
I need to update the deck a little since I removed Helm of the Host to be a little more fair to my local playgroup since it is an infinite combo and all it did was get my Aurellia targeted down a lot in the early game when they knew I had it.
No data for this card yet.
