Cleansing Nova Discussion

This deck looks excellent. Would mainboard swapping two Nexus of Fate with two Cleansing Nova help against aggro without hurting the main game plan?

If you’re having a problem with pillowfort decks then you can try out Austere Command and Cleansing Nova . A good budget option is Cleanfall , Leave No Trace , Paraselene , and Nova Cleric . If Ashnod's Altar is only in here to provide mana to attack through pillowfort than you’d be better off with a board wipe.

I think you can replace Llanowar Elves for Trostani Discordant . You have no need to ramp and you have no 3 drops so a t1 Llanowar into t2 land does not really benefit. Perhaps a couple Unbreakable Formation can help you push through in the later game which can be used as an offensive tool or a defensive tool against Cleansing Nova or Kaya's Wrath . Sunpetal Grove is useful in your manabase to ensure you can get the G and W for Emmara. In addition, you can add Ajani, the Greathearted replacing the current Ajani.

VampiricJace on Teyo is super cute, okay? (WAR Standard)

urzasails: I have NO idea why it did that either, some HTML formatting code or something. Funny tho haha

Okay, I have updated my deck. The main points:

What do you think of Callous Dismissal ? Disperse has always been fantastic in budget mono-blue tempo, like in modern, and CD destroyed in the prerelease. It also adds some extra synergy with Enter the God-Eternals (which, I am almost sure is going to be a staple in the meta, but again, what do I know, other than the fact as a mainly Esper player, it's fantastic and straight value).

I am not sure how the meta will be changing with WAR being released as it does mix things up a bit, but the former standard meta was almost completely Aggro with Esper/Azorius control being the exceptions. This being said, I would say it's important to have early removal like Moment of Craving as it takes out a common mono-white card, Adanto Vanguard , or a very common mono-red card, Runaway Steam-Kin , and boosts your life for later beatings. Also, I'm sure people have already alerted you of this, but wrath effects are your best friend. Kaya's Wrath , Settle the Wreckage , and Cleansing Nova are very boring and used by the net-deck Esper players, but are because they're very powerful control pieces. Again, I really like how your deck isn't like other esper decks and has more variety and creatures and big Drago bois, but there are a few staples that are quite important.

The new Massacre Girl pretty much does the job. Single Combat almost... Solar Blaze ? Definitely Time Wipe and Blast Zone . Cleansing Nova , Urza's Ruinous Blast . Really there's a lot more, just use Gatherer to catch up on all the latest ones and update your list.

I think Witchstalker as an on-tribe hexproof beater is enough to stick around, and it's got great utility when Solemnity isn't on the board. Shalai as well. You've got to consider Solemnity as only 1/100th of the deck, unless you're planning to go all in on the strategy with tutors.

As for Helix Pinnacle - I've never been a fan, personally. It's a mana sink, sure, but I think there are more productive ways to spend a turn. If it was more like Simic Ascendancy I'd be more supportive.

Looking at your list, I would cut Helix Pinnacle and maybe a field wipe spell like Planar Cleansing or Cleansing Nova . If the combo comes up, it's a replacement field wipe anyway.
