Citywide Bust Discussion
1 week ago
Boardwipe such as Austere Command , Citywide Bust , Fell the Mighty , Hour of Reckoning , Retribution of the Meek , and Solar Tide work well in token decks usually allowing you to stay on top if you haven't got a plethora of anthems out.

Green Sun's Zenith is a card you should consider. It fetches Dryad Arbor on turn one, and gets whatever else you need ( Knight of the Reliquary , Vitaspore Thallid , etc.) later. You should also consider running mana-acceleration dorks. Cards like Avacyn's Pilgrim , Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Arbor Elf , Birds of Paradise and Orcish Lumberjack would all be well-placed in your list. Consider running Sacred Foundry and Temple Garden , as you can grab these with your Farseek . Further in that vein, Nature's Lore is another good piece of ramp that gets non-basics, and it doesn’t specify that they ETB tapped.
Maybe your experience has been different from mine, but I’ve never been particularly impressed by Land Tax in EDH. If you include ways to bypass the one land per turn rule like Exploration or Burgeoning , it may be alright. Faithless Looting and Cathartic Reunion are useful for filtering the Land Tax lands into business spells, as is Magmatic Insight .
Path to Exile is another card I don’t like in EDH, as I’ve found ramping opponents to be pretty dangerous. I suggest Citywide Bust as a potential alternative, though Retribution of the Meek is likely better for this particular list.
Running hate bears in EDH is also pretty good: cards like Aven Mindcensor are a great way to slow down your opponents. Stax pieces like Price of Glory are good ways to avoid getting countered. Depending on how blue-centric your meta is, you could consider Boil , Choke , or Carpet of Flowers as well. If your meta is as blue as mine, consider Pyroblast as well.
Decimate is a card you should at least consider. It varies between useless and busted, so I think experimentation is probably the only way to see if you like it. Similarly, Punishing Fire goes well with your Grove of the Burnwillows to kill smaller blockers your Meekstone doesn’t keep tapped, but that is also a meta call.
Neheb, the Eternal goes infinite with Aggravated Assault , as does Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion . The prior is obviously preferable in this respect, as it is easier to get the combo going with the Eternal and it doesn’t mill you out in the end. However, Dreadhorde Champion is an excellent card for cycling through your deck on its own, and may also work well with your Land Tax .
Good luck with deck building!

Lets start with your CMC. In order for an aggro deck to be fast, the mana curve for the deck needs to be incredibly low to the ground. With that in mind here are some creatures that are all sub-three CMC:
- Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
- Boros Reckoner
- Thalia, Heretic Cathar
- Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
- Tithe Taker
- Mentor of the Meek
- Ballyrush Banneret
- Haazda Marshal
- Aerial Responder
- Frontline Medic
- Consul's Lieutenant
- Bounty Agent
- Mirror Entity
- Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip
- Thalia's Lieutenant
- Akroan Hoplite
- Champion of the Parish
- Legion Loyalist
- Metallic Mimic
- Recruiter of the Guard
- Swiftblade Vindicator
- Legion Warboss
You are also gonna need to give your creatures haste, and one of my favorite cards does just that for next to nothing; Mass Hysteria .
Here are a few cards I also think would be really good support, or are staples in this archetype:
- Unbreakable Formation
- Brave the Elements
- Teferi's Protection
- Collective Effort
- Citywide Bust
- Militia's Pride
- Brave the Sands
- Glorious Anthem
- Chance for Glory
- Spear of Heliod
Lastly... I know you said you avoided it intentionally but... I think it was a mistake... You need more ramp. The more ramp you have the faster you can play dudes the faster you can kill someone. So Mana Crypt , Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Chrome Mox , etc. I think you should play at least 5 ramp artifacts to really help you get that overwhelming force, because on T4 you now have to live in fear of WoGs
Ok that's all... he said after posting a page long comment... Sorry. <3 If you need help with cuts anything above 4 cmc should be the first things to go with the exception of Cathar's. get your CMC as close to 2 as you can.

My Depala deck is called "Can she see over the dashboard?"
Some cards i like using that may or may not fit your deck include Crackdown , Aerial Modification , Peacewalker Colossus , Citywide Bust and Braid of Fire . Braid of Fire gives Depala tons of free mana to use pulling out artifacts and dwarves.
I started with "dwarves in tanks" and have moved more to "dwarves in airplanes". I would drop a few of the smaller, non-flying vehicles, Jhoira's Familiar and Foundry Inspector . Your artifacts are already pretty cheap. Is the Sun Titan really helping?
One really amazing card in Hateflayer . You can tap him to crew a vehicle and untap him to rain withering hell on your opponents. If you have 9 mana you can untap him 3 times for the same vehicle if you want. He destroys indestructible creatures.

I wouldn't say that this deck's Lex Luthor is Animar. Protection prevents DEBT, as previously stated, but BW's best attribute is board wipes and secondary card draw. Protection doesn't stop wipes and Animar decks (unless they are colorless morph/bounce/combo decks) are notorious for overcommitting to the board.
Cards like Citywide Bust , Slaughter the Strong and Council's Judgment can hate on the Animar player, (and not kill your important stuff) while still having game against more casual creature based decks.
Also, if you want to be that person, Contamination can really shut off your opponents stuff. With Teysa, one black creature is enough for a couple turns of hate.

I would include more Tajic, Legion's Edge to mentor your creatures and be a decent blocker since he can be given first strike, he can also protect your creatures from being burned out.
You can also do this with Shalai, Voice of Plenty which if you splash green can give your creatures +1/+1 counters.
