Cool list! Have you tested Ceremonious Rejection in the sideboard? It seems like it could be pretty good in matchups like Hardened Affinity or Tron

Mainboard changes:

3x Fatal Push -> 3x Surgical Extraction

1x Path to Exile -> 1x Spell Snare

1x Settle the Wreckage -> 1x Unmoored Ego

1x Engineered Explosives & 1x Wrath of God -> 2x Absorb

Sideboard changes:

2x Ceremonious Rejection -> 2x Celestial Purge

1x Unmoored Ego & 2x Negate -> 3x Dovin's Veto

This is what I'm thinking about. Less removal, more control, but I worry about taking out most of my creature removal. 4 spot removal and 3 wipes seems like a lot to lose.

Also for the sideboard, Celestial Purge is better than Ceremonious Rejection right now. CP hits Dredge, Phoenix, Death's Shadow, Jund, The Rock, Hallow One, just a ton of top tier decks.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd that deck dies to Chalice of the Void x=0, yes, the ingot chewers help... but it still dies. Storm siding 2-3 chalice and same with Miracles all make that deck really need the chewers and combo every game, along with lands and everything else and you need a perfect mulligan to pull it off.

It actually has a decent game against eldrazi if you run some Ceremonious Rejection s side, but gets stomped on by miracles too much IMO. Terminus + Counterbalance / Sensei's Divining Top to top a land and counter hypergen and Chalice in the side makes the matchup nearly an instant loss.

I'll do more testing though, but it seems storm isn't worth it due to weird hands too often. Been trying less all-in strategies with 4x Mental misstep and more cantrips and a different sideboard to go against Eldrazi, but then miracles stomps it, and the eldrazi matchup isn't much more favored.

Overall Miracles & Eldrazi are the format, with Dredge and Storm in tier 2

agreed BBD does specifically call out eldrazi as a predator...however; i think we can all agree that hinging all of our opinions off a single event is a little rash.

if Abrupt Decay /any form of removal/interaction not having the corresponding charge counters doesn't explain dealing with/playing around Chalice of the Void then i guess i just cant go any further with that...let alone delve into how with Ceremonious Rejection / Disdainful Stroke or Alpine Moon / Blood Moon / Damping Sphere or Infernal Reckoning or Ensnaring Bridge would combat an eldrazi deck.

"if it looks like a duck... quacks like a duck...".... no Chalice of the Void is certainly not a permission spell that goes on the stack; but i think its obvious that its role in anyones deck is similar to Blood Moon in the sense that they are Restricting and denying resources and actions of the opponent... people who run Chalice/Moon build their decks around them....and in time the meta adapts to this.

when it comes to actual tournament results...i dont think one event is enough to be conclusive...so all anyone can do is theory craft. This is where i was going with "Aggro beats Control, Control beats Combo, Combo beats Aggro" fundamentals as well as making a case for new cards thats have been printed since Eye of Ugin with Ceremonious Rejection / Disdainful Stroke .... Alpine Moon ... Damping Sphere Infernal Reckoning and more....

with these things in mind i dont think decks are going to have to go "All-in" to beat eldrazi" anymore then just being aware it exists on the competitive scene like anything else.... Miricles placed 2nd in the actual tournement/event in a field of eldrazi...

Eye of Ugin is powerful but there are several accessible answers to it in the same way.....take jund for example....hand disruption with Thoughtseize ...easy enough to throw in Alpine Moon and Abrupt Decay / Assassin's Trophy .....there is just so much removal...like a lot of removal... to be able Fulminator Mage /Fulminate a land, Bloodbraid Elf /Cascade into Kolaghan's Command /K-Command, get Fulminator back.... im just not convinced that eldrazi cant be dealt with.

as far as the mulligan scenario is concerned... Serum Powder exists...but nobody is always gonna have there best cards every game...thats why its a game.

so Alpine Moon and Ceremonious Rejection dont count due to color restrictions?
