Citywide Bust Discussion

roshendo1 on Oppa Enchantress Style!

What kind of deck is this? It seems pretty lackluster for an enchantress deck, and there are several cards in here that don't really work for the conventional enchantress strategy. I'm going to assume this is Voltron, given that most of the Tuvasa decks are. So, with the assumption of a Voltron deck I'll recommend things, and if that is not your goal, then let me know and i can adjust my recommendations. The general key to Tuvasa Voltron Enchantress is use enchantress effects to rip through your deck to get enchantments that you can cast to draw more enchantments. So for one, all the enchantresses: Argothian Enchantress Satyr Enchanter Verduran Enchantress Also, we can include effects that directly aid the voltron strategy such as Kor Spiritdancer Sram, Senior Edificer

So now looking at what doesn't super work with this strategy: Archetype of Imagination doesn't really work for this strategy. It's 6 CMC for a constellation trigger and "evasion" while many aura's do this but better. Aqueous Form does this in spades for 1, which is better for netting multiple enchantress triggers a turn. In fact a good number of the creature's here can be dropped, such as Arixmethes, Selkie, Daxos, Elderwood Scion, Omnivore, Slime, and Yavimaya Enchantress. Would probably replace these with enchantresses and a Laboratory Maniac

As far as instants, some other tutors would be good, as well as some tutors that can hit creatures so you can more consistently grab other enchantresses, so Worldly Tutor and Eladamri's Call both reasonably fill that niche. Some counter-magic to stop your opponents from resolving sweepers can also help, especially VS Cyclonic Rift and other such effects that can't be stopped via hexproof or indestructible. Of course, running sweepers of your own is also a good idea.

Skipping lands, cuz improving the landbase is a given, and money is hard.

I would highly recommend adding Estrid back to this. Mask Tokens are actually quite borked when they come down each turn, triggering constellation, pumping Tuvasa, and protecting permanents.

Your Sorceries are... fine. but I would recommend taking out stuff like Martial Coup and Rebirth for good ol fasioned WOG and Austere Command. Citywide Bust also seems good as pretty much none of your creatures fulfill that condition, and the ones that do can be protected or you can just allow to die.

As far as enchantments, pretty much all the mana amp aura's can be dropped. these were in the pre-con for Estrid, but you'd be better off running cantrip aura's in their place. Cantrip Aura's give you another draw, and are cheap, which means you can get through your deck faster. Dictate of Kruphix, Bounty of the Luxa, Ground Seal, Starfield, Ever-Watching Threshold, and Sigil can come out if you want to go full into the voltron strat, though out of those, Sigil can play into the strat.

As far as artifacts, you'll want more fast mana, and probably Alhammarret's Archive for enhancing your value from your draws.

I've played something similar on MTG Arena and I'm currently collecting cards for IRL playtesting as I'm a long time weenie player. As for cards to add, Venerated Loxodon is REALLY good, especially as Goblin Chainwhirler is still a thing. Personally, I would take out the big drops such as Lyra Dawnbringer and Leonin Warleader and go more low to the ground with cards like Ajani's Pridemate together with some more Leonin Vanguard. (Its pretty good tbh) You could also add Citywide Bust to the sideboard as it more often than not will only wipe your opponents' big creatures if you are up against something like an opposing Lyra Dawnbringer. Another card you could add is Make a Stand as a sideboard card against control decks with board wipes, or just as a suprise pump+indestructible against another low to the ground deck. I personally think that white weenie is a pretty good deck in standard atm, as there is so much customization to it with all the 1-2 drops, and some good lords in Marshal and Loxodon. Anyway, congratz on the win :D

Evolving Wilds is the better of the two, but shocks and buddy lands should have 3-color covered.


I'd run another Sorcerous Spyglass against walkers, from controlling ones like Teferi and Ral to the midrangy Vraskas.

Silent Gravestone is normally better than Ashes of the Abhorrent, so at leas switch one, but I like ashes for the lifegain.

Burn is a big threat in the meta, so Shield Mare feels like a sweet one of at least for a single Citywide Bust.

lickitypikity: The issue was that it wasn't pulling its weight outside of those circumstances, TBH. Not to mention that, as a 4-drop, it conflicts with my commander's spot on the mana curve. It was between cutting that and Hero of Bladehold, but 1) I like the Battle Cry on that, to push some extra damage and 2) Hero of Bladehold is a pet card of mine ;)

KingZamiel: Almost exactly my thoughts on the matter! :) Divine Visitation and Plaguecrafter got added, but I've been considering Dawn of Hope and the two conditional board wipes. I think I'd rather run Retribution of the Meek over Citywide Bust as a general thing, and I'm not running that because it hits too many of my cards. I could see the argument for Ritual of Soot, but Consume the Meek is only okay because it's an instant so I'm not really convinced here. And I agree, I'm really hoping for some good Orzhov stuff from Ravnica Allegiances!! :) Can't wait...

Hey Daedalus19876! I hope you're doing well! No worries, life happens and such.

Anyways, personally I love the new Guilds set. So much so that I'm trying to put together a standard deck again (I haven't been keeping up with standard since the first Amonkhet set, sadly). Also there's no denying that there's phenomenal additions to edh, like Assassin's Trophy. That said, I saw very few cards that would be worthwhile to this deck. I'm just gonna assume that there'll be better game with the next set and Orzhov will shine once more.

Anywho, like lickitypikity suggested, Divine Visitation would definitely add some punch.

Another card that you might consider is Ritual of Soot. It's a little more limited than other board wipes, but it does leave Elenda unaffected. Great for token and weenie decks though!

Alternatively, there is Citywide Bust. It'll more than likely hit Elenda as well if she's powered up, but it's only 3 CMC.

Mausoleum Secrets is an interesting tutor card, and one I think is worth mentioning.

Honorable mentions:

Plaguecrafter. Maybe it can be a cheaper alternative to Barter in Blood?

Dawn of Hope. I know life gain is not that big in this deck but there should be enough there to make consistent use of the card draw. Plus it makes tokens so it's not completely useless otherwise.

As usual, I hope this helps some!

Just updated with the new budget version, Budget Elves of Ravnica.

The strategy is some what different to account for the considerable decrease in deck price. Notable main deck cards excluded are: Pelt Collector, Steel Leaf Champion, Trostani Discordant, Knight of Autumn and Temple Garden. It's also Selesnya tribal Elves with Elvish Clancaller using convoke with Emmara, Soul of the Accord, Venerated Loxodon and Conclave Tribunal. The difference is I've added a ramp strategy with Marwyn, the Nurturer and Druid of the Cowl. The added ramp is for main deck Shalai, Voice of Plenty. The budget version can go aggressive with Loxodon or midrange/ramp with Marwyn/Shalai/Loxodon.

I decided to add main deck Shalai over main deck Whisperer because Shalai is much better against aggro than Whisperer. With the loss of Steel Leaf Champion in the budget version than the power level is decreased a lot therefore I need to add something that could recoup some power level; Shalai with ramp is my answer. Whisperer is still a powerful strategy with Elves, but for now he'll go in the sideboard for midrange/control matchups.

The sideboard is much different to also account for the decrease in deck price. Most notable card excluded is Vivien Reid. Unfortunately, Vivien is not a budget card for Standard. In her place I've added more Whisperer and Find / Finality. Find is quickly becoming one of my favorite cards in Guilds of Ravnica; I find my self putting it in all my green decks. Find is very good at recovery after removal or nonSettle board wipe; two mana to recur two different creatures is very good.

Finality is good too especially with Marwyn and Shalai and I could see adding some Woodland Cemetery to play it, but for now I'm leaving black out in the manabase. With the lose of Vivien, the budget version needs alternative ways of card advantage for midrange/control matchups which Find provides. Citywide Bust replaces Settle the Wreckage and is a significant downgrade, but it's a necessary answer to Carnage Tyrant or Ghalta, Primal Hunger. Reclamation Sage replaces Knight of Autumn.

I think a good sideboard for Stompy might be Citywide Bust.
