Cataclysm Discussion

Have you considered cards like Tragic Arrogance, Supreme Verdict, or Cataclysm? I personally feel as if you need at least 4-5 wipes handy, in case the situation gets a little dicey, as in, someone attacks you with mass tokens. Then again, since you say "casual", I suppose you have your reasons for not doing so.

Winterblast on Augustin's $t4ks (4000$ Solution/Stax)

dlamars I had it in the deck in the beginning, before I owned a Land Equilibrium, then I played them both and then I cut ward of bones. One problem is that it allows the opponents to have one more of every type than you have, while land equilibrium doesn't. If I have 0 lands with land equilibrium, no one can play a land until I do (the great part is, that according to the ruling you can't play the land and use the mana before sacrificing it). Another problem is that I usually have more of every other permanent type than everyone else, so apart from limiting the land supply the effects of ward of bones have often been completely useless.

youngfischer I play both, inkmoth and blinkmoth. Inkmoth is great with elspeth and jitte and blinkmoth is just a useful flying blocker, returning with Crucible of Worlds.

I've just bought Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and I probably put him in the deck as soon as the order arrives. Not sure what to cut for it though...maybe Cataclysm because ugin is a great mass removal too, or Words of Wind (although this helps a lot with removing certain pieces that might prevent my own plays while slowing down the opponents, for example bouncing a Cursed Totem or Ensnaring Bridge for one action then playing it again), or Sapphire Medallion because I have already reduced the coloured spells very much.

akumawerewolf on Alesha who smiles at puns

I always love seeing other Alesha EDH decks, as she is the main commander I play as well. The biggest suggestions I have for this deck are:

  • Reveillark because when it leaves play, it grabs nearly every creature in the whole deck
  • Sun Titan because it often can work like a 2nd Alesha that doesn't bring the creature in attacking
  • Panharmonicon to get abilities to trigger twice whenever a creature enters the battlefield
  • Solemn Simulacrum for recurable ramp and card draw
  • Also, if you're fine with being hated by your group and being very mean, Cataclysm tends to be very good in Alesha, as you just keep Alesha and a land on the battlefield, then play a 2nd land, and you can very quickly rebuild

i_HoRiZoN_i I think Linvala, the Preserver is definitely replaceable. But personally I like her. She is a good card to help you comeback on board if you are behind. If I was to remove her it would have to be for another comeback card. One with a stronger effect. I love comeback cards such as Cataclysm & Linvala, the Preserver very good cards for situations where I need to catch up in the match.

Winterblast on Stax, the magic cure

I wouldn't play Pox in a multicoloured deck, especially if your manabase is so inconsistent. With BBB it will often be a dead card and if there's only Zur on the board you don't want to play it either...I'd rather use Cataclysm or Armageddon and Ravages of War. Not Damnation and Wrath of God because you probably don't need and want to clear the entire board.

Stax is really good if it prevents the opponents from playing anything useful in the first place instead of reacting to threats, it's the archetype for proactive control. I personally wouldn't play counters, if you don't play Mana Drain because it doesn't fit the overall strategy. You don't want to keep mana open to react, you want to drop something that locks the opponent down. Maybe some more taxing permanents? Sphere of Resistance, Lodestone Golem, Thorn of Amethyst, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Trinisphere...Tangle Wire is also great and you have some cards that prevent untapping too.

If you already play Rest in Peace I would include one of my all time favourite combos and use Helm of Obedience. For more consistency add the Leyline of the Void again as well. This trick has won so many games for me, it's ridiculous. A bit more tutors would be cool though, for example Transmute Artifact if you want to buy that (you find some on ebay for 40-50 USD).

Nite-Klaw2001 Yes. Cataclysm has been suggested to be removed for years but here's the thing people never realize with Cataclysm is it is an Oh shit card in this deck. So let's say I am falling behind, BUT I have Avacyn, Angel of Hope on the field my opponents just don't have a good answer but have stronger boards. Bam I can cast Cataclysm deny them the proper amount of mana to remove Avacyn, Angel of Hope slay some lands, and slay some artifacts. It isn't a card I would ever just play to boardwipe. It is a STRICTLY an oh shit im falling behind but can comeback card which is why it will never be removed because it can win, and 360 a lot of games. So it defeats the purpose but it can also 360 a game depending on the circumstances, and win me a game by just playing the card. All it does in this deck is play as an Oh Shit card.

Catastrophe isn't really what I was thinking when you first mentioned MLD. I was actually thinking about just Armageddon or Cataclysm. If you played Loyal Retainers, you could play Cataclysm keeping one land and a Loyal Retainers, then use the retainers to get back Elesh Norn. Pretty solid play. Cataclysm has a tendency to be a bit clunky though. It's hard to know whether not its the right thing to do. Armageddon might be the safer bet. With your Heroic Intervention, it's broken.

I'd say between Birthing Pod and Fauna Shaman, the Birthing Pod is more impactful, but both would be legit. Think of it this way. Birthing Pod develops your boardstate well, while Fauna Shaman rebuilds your boardstate well.

I'm really glad you took my suggestions so well. Thank you for that. This deck is on its way to becoming a masterpiece.
