Celestial Purge Discussion

Silverdrake on Esper Draw-Go

3 weeks ago

Hey! I've been playing Esper control on and off for the past several years (playing Azorius in the off time, I just can't make up my mind about the inclusion of black). In practice you'll find Remand is a powerful tempo card, but generally in a control deck like this the only tempo you care about is making land drops every turn. If I were you, I'd drop it for either a Mana Leak since it's the same cost but most often actually deals with the threat instead of delaying it, at the cost of not replacing itself, or a third Snapcaster Mage to get more use out of your other utility spells. You also might consider a Celestial Purge for the sideboard - Blood Moon neuters this deck and you don't always have an opportunity to counter it on the way down. Purge gives you a way out of that

SilverdrakeThank you again for the feedback.

For graveardhate i decied to go with Leyline of the Void because i think Rest in Peace cut off a lot of my own cards.

I want to split my wraths because Meddling Mage.

Stony Silence looks good against affiniti but also tron or KCI i think.

Blessed Alliance and Collective Brutality both flexible and i imagen good against aggro with the opotunety to kill something and gain life. Celestial Purge as a cheap removle for everithing in the right matchups.

I think Leyline of Sanctity is most efficent as a 4 off in the sideboard so i have good chances to have it on my startinghand. After i get Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek it's not that impressive to play Leyline of Sanctity on turn 4. But maybe i see in testing that hexprofe for me is that important.

I have now cuttet all Negate in the sideboard and i'm not sure about that. It's so powerfull in a lot of matchups and i'm not sure i have enough to board in i case i want to board out most of my creature removle.

I will update you after my first matches.

Celestial Purge is a good sideboard card in its own right, and with Painter's Servant (and Scuttlemutt) it's even better since you can blow up lands and other non-black/red permanents with it as well if you need to. It could replace Maelstrom Pulse with it in the sideboard, 4 Pulse is usually too many anyways. While we're talking about sideboards, the one Serum Visions is honestly a wasted slot. It doesn't directly improve any of your matchups, and having a slightly higher chance of drawing one won't change the game in your favor. Either move it into the main or cut it; another Thoughtseize would use that spot better.

Also, Negate is better than Heroic Intervention, especially since you're a lot more heavily weighted towards blue. It can hit more things and it does everything Intervention does (beats sweepers and removal) so it's almost always going to be better; Intervention was meant to be a replacement Negate for green decks without access to blue, so for a blue deck to be playing it over Negate seems... inefficient? I can't really think of the word. You can also play Dispel for cheaper protection.

Moving on, from what I can tell Call to the Kindred was meant to be an extra Reaper King tutor, but I think 4 copies is too many. It's a very slow card and can easily end up in a 2-for-1 without you being able to get any value out of it. You don't want to draw more than one copy of a slow card like that (generally 4 copies means you want to draw multiples each game), especially taking its cmc into account, so I suggest dropping to 3 or 2 copies.

I know someone said this already, but with the number of artifacts you're playing (22, I think the above comment missed the Pentad Prisms and Chromatic Stars), Spire of Industry is pretty much a direct upgrade to Mana Confluence.

Anyways, you've made a pretty neat deck. Good job.

This is a really cool deck! Zombies are really amazing, and it looks like you have a very competitive version of them.

What made you pick the Zombie lords over other lords, such as Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Accursed, Lord of the Undead, and Risen Executioner? Or other Zombies-matter cards, like Skirk Ridge Exhumer, Plague Belcher, and Graveborn Muse.

If you're looking for crazy, kind of out-there ideas, it might be worth checking out Helldozer, Army of the Damned, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Grave Titan, Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Liliana, Death's Majesty, or Necromancer's Stockpile.

Lifebane Zombie, Stillmoon Cavalier, Shamble Back, Celestial Purge, and even Selfless Spirit could make good SB additions.

I'm fascinated by Withered Wretch and Revoke Existence. What brought you to choose them over more traditional choices?

I'm even more interested as to why you didn't choose Path to Exile, considering that nearly every other brew out there running white uses it. Lack of slots? Helps opponent too much? Does it not synergize like Fatal Push does?

Also, what are your thoughts on Blue for zombie decks? There are plenty of good cards

Finally, your mana base. I'd consider taking out Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Bloodstained Mire, and a couple Swamps for Marsh Flats, a Plains, and ~2 Mutavaults. The Plains allows for you to cast stuff with a Blood Moon on the field, or fix your mana after getting a creature Path to Exiled. Also, Concealed Courtyards might be worth checking out, since you're so low to the ground. They're rotating out of Standard soon as well.

Sorry for the wall of text full of stuff you probably thought of before! Thanks for posting your deck!

ArchonBlue on Leyline in U/W Control?

2 months ago

I've been running three Leyline of Sanctity in the sideboard for my Control list, but I haven't been too impressed by it. Its mostly there for burn spells and to a lesser extend hand disruption, but often I don't get to play it turn 0 and its just kind of slow and clunky. I think I could throw in some better cards like Damping Sphere, Celestial Purge, or Ceremonious Rejection. Any thoughts on this? I'd really appreciate some feedback! Here's the list: Gideon U/W Control

TKDbeast on Soul Sisters (Sky Monument)

Interesting! I love Sky Hussar. Really creative design.

I'd recommend putting a basic island in there, just in case a creature receives a Path to Exile and you need {U}, you're cracking a fetch on low life, or your opponent plays a Blood Moon, you'll still be able to cast your {U} spells.

Perhaps more copies of Auriok Champion should go to your sideboard.

I'm interested as to why you didn't add Ajani's Pridemate. Is the metagame too removal-heavy for it nowadays? Same goes for Kor Skyfisher.

I'd also think about having Sundering Growth instead of Disenchant. In fact, thanks to Detention Sphere, I don't even think you need Disenchant at all! Maybe put a planeswalker or two in its stead, or perhaps a Celestial Purge, although, with all the Auriok Champions, you might not need it. Heck, with the overabundance of Humans, Linvala, Keeper of Silence might be a good choice.

What a really creative twist on Soul Sisters!

EagleO1 on BW Planeswalker Pox

Hey thanks for the comment! Yeah the blood baron has proven to be pretty lackluster so its going out. I did very much like the big gideon though and I think I'm gonna try a second copy. It could just be my meta but every time it resolved it proved to be powerful. Especially against eldrazi tron in concert with the other gideons amd an emblem from Gideon of the Trials. My most recent thoughts on sideboard land hate is that it may not even be worth having it at all. Against eldrazi tron they are going to have the lands they need eventually regardless so the card only slows them down at best. Against regular tron, your pretty much losing that matchup every time so is it reslly worth the precious slots in your board to make an abysmal matchup into a just horrible matchup? I'm not sure that it is. I'm putting in some Celestial Purge for this reason. I'm thinking its probably better to shore up the closer ones to put them more in your favor rather than fight the battle that your going to lose anyway. For example, the only way I can see beating any of the trons is with the emblem I mentioned earlier and a critical mass of gideons that they have to work through. And thats a long shot still. As far as the discard value, in not sure about including Start as it seems like a pretty steep cost on both sides. Vengeful Pharaoh seems really interesting to me though because it can be good even if you never get to cast it. I like that a lot.
