Cleansing Nova Discussion

Dramy on Boros MIDRANGE : Control + Angel

2 days ago

Thx for your return !! I notice that i've miss to add side board u_u

Deafening Clarion Cleansing Nova and probably Settle the Wreckage definitly got their place in my side ! I'll update this and add my side this week.

Hunted are there to generate some tokens and have some early body (haven't any drop 2).

I only run one copie of Lena because she certainly not a game breaker but in some cases i thing with Divine Visitation, well a lots of angels :) I want to give her a chance to shine before to remove her :p

According to your point on Militia Bugler, i think that Warboss could be better, and btw draw is hard to find in W/R so ...

I'll update this deck list and add a side this week end :)

It kind of feels like you're hedging your bets between aggro and control. I like the control shell that you have going with Treasure Map  Flip and Karn, Scion of Urza and Lyra Dawnbringer as powerful and effective pieces, but for that strategy I think Hunted Witness and Lena and especially Militia Bugler seem really out of place. I would shift those small aggressive creatures and Lena with cards like Deafening Clarion,Cleansing Nova and Lightning Strike and maybe some way to draw cards so you can feel more like a control deck. I think it might increase your consistency by streamlining your gameplan

Hey thanks for the feedback both of you. I have made some changes such as doing a split of Essence Scatter and Syncopate. Then I dropped the 2x Cleansing Nova and added the 4x Sinister Sabotage.

What are your thoughts Chainer_the_Dementia_Master on Chemister's Insight? I see you haven’t bothered to use it in your list and instead have gone with Anticipate.

I wouldn’t mind having a third Teferi, Hero of Dominaria here, but considering I only own one currently (they aren’t exactly cheap either) and probably will buy some Vraska's Contempts instead of a third teferi if I build this deck rather than retire it with rotation.

In place of what would be a teferi, I was planning on having an extra creature as a finisher and that’s likely to be Chromium, the Mutable.

I love assassins trophy but it’s already pre selling for 30 so no way I’m gonna be able to afford a play set. So with that in mind I’m thinking of how i can use convoke with my knights. There’s a lot of board wipe available. Any thoughts on sideboard options to prevent Cleansing Nova or recover from Settle the Wreckage I’m sure there’s some from black or red as well but I’m not sure

Jeskai control is also the first archetype I brewed in spoiler season. I like what you did especially with the sb I’m definitely going to make mine look a bit more like yours.


+1 teferi -1 ral

+2 Mission Briefing -2 Lava Coil lava coil could be good but I would let meta figure itself out first. Against current meta I wouldn’t include it since it’s a sorcery and only the most powerful spells can be sorcery speed. However there is a decent chance it is good since undergrowth could care about that type of thing and it cleanly deals with phoenixes.

-1 negate +1 island

+1 Cleansing Nova -1 Karn, Scion of Urza

Have you considered Sinister Sabotage? Is the mana base the reason you chose Ionize over it? 2 damage is mostly irrelevant in this type of deck while surveil is good and gets a flipped azcanta quicker.

A spicy card I am going to be testing is expansion//explosion. Vraska's Contempt is the best target but it is also great in counter wars.

Both of em' are in the decklist as of now DrkNinja all though honestly, I'm having second thoughts about trading Austere Command for Cleansing Nova. I feel the variety in the choices it offered was worth the CMC of 6, but I'm testing out and running with as much advice as I can get. Hopefully, everything works out well.

Hey multimedia, thanks again for your help. I have removed some of the cards you suggested that made sense to me in order to speed up the deck a bit. I ended up removing Austere Command for Cleansing Nova as it provides most of the same options while being 1 CMC less. I also removed costly token generating cards such as Necromancer's Covenant and From Under the Floorboards and the monster stealer Grave Betrayal. I also removed Gravespawn Sovereign to reduce the CMC and remove the last bit of creature steal in the deck. I added Liliana, the Last Hope, Graveyard Marshal, Nantuko Husk, and Shepherd of Rot in to reduce the cost in the deck. I was able to drop the deck from 3.7 CMC to 3.5. Not sure if said improvement will be noticeable during gameplay, but we shall see! Thanks again man I really do appreciate it.

Yea and before I forget, I avoided cards like Living End, Living Death, and Patriarch's Bidding because of the off chance that I help my opponent. In my 5 man pod, I'm not the only one who rocks grave recursion. Buddy of mine has a wicked good dredge deck that I hate.

Boza on Varina deck needs help eliminating ...

The cards from the maybeboard that standout above the rest are:
Gravespawn Sovereign is awesome if you can find a way to give your zombies vigilance. Something like Radiant Destiny will help with that. Gray Merchant of Asphodel will help with finishing off someone or gaining some life and is useful effect to have around. Noxious Ghoul is super good with tokens or something like altar + gravecrawler.

Commander's Sphere is awesome in tricolor decks.

Cleansing Nova is very good - you have low numbers of artifacts and it is an extra boardwipe.

The rest are mediocre, given that you are building a more combo-oriented deck. Things like heartstone, training grounds, libreary of leng, orb of dreams are too niche to be part of the mainboard.
