Ceremonious Rejection Discussion

Heres some suggestions in case you start running into orbs, but i see you have Counterspell Krosan Grip and Beast Within, thats already decent if in opening hand.

Anyways, these may be useful in sideboard in case of oppressive artifacts etc without hurting your mana curve

Batterskull is at all time low because of Card:Ceremonious Rejection and Kolaghan's Command also fatal push kills the germ

Looks like a great ultra budget modern deck! Condemn works fine but can backfire against really big creatures like Tarmogoyf, Death's Shadow, and Reality Smasher and creatures that use activated abilities instead of combat like Eldrazi Displacer, Grim Lavamancer, and Eidolon of the Great Revel. Having so many counterspells actually makes Oust a great budget removal spell for you as you will know what the opponent is drawing.

Cast Out is also good since it can cycle for a new card if you don't need it and hits any non land permanent. Consider you deck as having space for 14 non-creature spells. You can mix and match as you see fit.

One thing to consider is your sideboard. You get 15 cards to swap out after your 1st game of the match. People have a lot of opinions about sideboards, but I like to have 3 cards to hate graveyards, 3 for artifact hate, 3 board wipes, 2 life gain, and 2 enchantment hate, and 2 flex slots. For you, 3 Tormod's Crypt, 2 Kataki, War's Wage and 2 Fragmentize for artifact hate, 2 Collective Effort, 3 Day of Judgment, 2 Blessed Alliance, and 1 Ceremonious Rejection would be a good place to start. Rest in Peace and Stony Silence are good upgrades over Tormod's Crypt and Kataki, War's Wage later on.

Thank you for the quick and very good review Justin_Bop. :)First of all thank you for the good recommendations and all the tiny sideboard tricks and switches. My MTG-FNM-Store has a good amount of affinity, tron and Death's Shadow. So Stony Silence and Card:Ceremonious Rejection are very good cards in my meta. I love your suggestion of Fauna Shaman. Really helps out to tutor the right sideboard card or upgrade Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch in late game to more impactful cards. Traverse the Ulvenwald is a nice idea i have to consider it. The only problem is that my kind of deck never hits delirium. So I have to think about another deck with more fancy stuff :D I absolutely love the idea and the value that Matter Reshaper is giving us with Elder Deep-Fiend. Very nice suggestion mate! I will try and make a new deck with that card and a few Thought-Knot Seer to have disruption and input about the enemy. I also liker your Dark Bant decklist. Fancy idea to splash for Fatal Push or cards like Abrupt Decay. I will going to play the deck today evening the first time and I will keep you updated about the result! Shoutout to this: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/ldrz-dp-frd/ and this: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/dark-bant-midrange-3/deck ideas. Nice brews and maybe someone can forge a really fancy deck out of these two.

Just wanted to pop in and give a couple of my recommendations, as I love what you have made here. Elder Deep-Fiend is a pet card of mine to be honest (if you care to see my brew I'll put it below), so I was naturally inclined to check out your deck.

What you want to include in your sideboard entirely depends on what you expect to face when playing (or just testing) the deck. With Affinity, Grixis Death's Shadow, Eldrazi Tron, Dredge, and Collected Company prominent in the format, many hate cards are available (especially in White) to improve these specific matchups. Rest in Peace works well when facing Dredge and Death's Shadow, Stony Silence hoses Affinity and Lantern Control, land destruction (which Bant colors lack) breaks down Eldrazi Tron. Simple counterspells can help with Collected Company, as well as board wipes like Supreme Verdict. Personally, I would start with 3x Rest in Peace, 2x Stony Silence, 3x Ceremonious Rejection (strong against Tron), 1x Selfless Spirit, 1x Thrun, the Last Troll (for UWx control) and a Vendilion Clique or two. The last couple of slots can be whatever shores up your 50/50 matchups, you'll have to test that one.

Another suggestion I have, and I will certainly be trying this out on my own, is to make the deck a bit more toolbox-y with either Fauna Shaman, Chord of Calling, and/or Traverse the Ulvenwald. Switching up your deck this way gives you access to many of your sideboard hate cards in the mainboard easier (and more consistently gives you Elder Deep-Fiend.

One final idea I have, and this may not be best for this deck as you manabase is already a bit stressed as is, but, I have tested splashing black for Fatal Push in another Bant deck I made (here is the deck). The splash worked amazing to be honest, as in a tempo-ish build, Fatal Push seems better than Path to Exile (or you could play it alongside it). Probably not right for your deck, but could work with testing, who knows.

Finally, adding in some more Eldrazi and making you deck more similar to Bant Eldrazi could help you out here. Matter Reshaper is nearly the perfect Elder Deep-Fiend target, and Thought-Knot Seer is sweet to play against many decks. This is what I've been doing for awhile with the deck, but you may be onto something with Bant. Hope my suggestions helped a bit, keep me updated with your testing or developments with the list, good luck improving the deck!

I don't love Kefnet the Mindful or Earthshaker Khenra here, and would recommend more cards like Shock which are improved by the Soul-Scar Mage which could be nice to have a full playset of. Also would just straight up play the Disallow over the Void Shatter but I recommend you take a look at Censor as well. There is a point where if you run enough cycling cards, you could play Abandoned Sarcophagus which is gross with Censor. I think Essence Scatter/Negate should both be in the sideboard where you could also consider Dispel and Ceremonious Rejection although you must know your local meta better than I do and Essence Scatter may be worth a mainboard as you have it for your own meta. Love decks like this! +1 and good luck at gameday!

To add to Zaueski, Pithing Needle also hits 'walkers, since it says "name a card" and loyalty abilities are activated...I'm not trying to say "gotcha!", I'm only pointing out that I didn't see that in your breakdown of major cards Needle hits. Sure, it doesn't hose walkers the same as it does Ravager, but LotV is a non-negligible component of DS decks, even if she's not essential.

Regardless, loved the article! Ceremonious Rejection is my favorite sleeper card from KLD. It's even viable as a few-of in decks worried about GY hate and Eldrazi at the same time.
