Complete Disregard Discussion
10 months ago
, thanks for the feedback, yeah I feel Complete Disregard could be a good sideboard card for those kind of matchups, I will include it!
I am still unhappy with Ritual of Soot I will look for something else or buy something else when i can.
Thanks for everything!

ChooseWiselySon, Go for the Throat seems like a good card also, I forgot it existed! When its good against decks, it's great. When its bad, board it out for something else. Maybe run non-conditional removal in the board to deal with artifacts. Wierd idea, but Complete Disregard deals with Etched Champion in the affinity matchup, which is when Go for the Throat is bad. It's all up to you though. Great deck!

A friend and I were discussing this idea recently. We all know about the color identity rule for EDH - and how there is a special exception for the Extort mechanic as the is part of the oracle text and not the activation.
But what about creatures with Devoid? Take for example Brutal Expulsion . Yes it costs , but it's still a colorless card. Should this be allowed in a colorless deck?
I'm specifically asking about cards with the Devoid mechanic. E.G. the Eldrazi.
I personally think that if you run an Eldrazi as a Commander, you should be allowed to have access to Devoid cards. That isn't to say that if you run Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger you get to run cards like Sunforger , but rather you DO get to run cards like Complete Disregard . Likewise, this does not grant you access to non-Devoid / colored cards, such as Sylvan Scrying .
There are currently 99 cards with Devoid, which gives quite a lot of extended play and experimenting. I wonder if the vast number of cards with Devoid could off-set the potential power creep? Sure, some cards would immediately become staples. Other cards, not so much. But if you want to go for it, I'd say do it. Literally no different than running a colored Commander and slipping in the Titans in the other 99 as beat sticks.
This idea would only apply if the colorless Commander you run is an Eldrazi. Sorry, but you don't get to do this if you run Hope of Ghirapur , lol.
But what do you all think? Would that make Eldrai decks far too powerful? Or would it be a fun and refreshing new take on an old classic?
EDIT: --- And no, cards with Emerge, like Decimator of the Provinces are not included. There are 13 cards with Emerge, but these are not technically colorless cards and do not contain Devoid to essentially errata them into becoming colorless. Emerge cards are not included in this idea.

After looking at the deck (left suggestions there) you could probably tune the deck to some prize support if the fnm meta is small enough (I have to pull myself away from some deck suggestion filled comments Complete Disregard came up as I'm typing this to fight phoenix and many of the recurring creatures in the top end of the format).
Now it could be extra fun to switch week to week between the pauper and budget-less versions of the deck, keep your meta guessing by using the same sleeves.

Blue-Black or Mono-Black, with some in Jeskai, Rakdos, Grixis, and Izzet
Really, blue has some reasonably good card draw, specifically Augur of Bolas, Mulldrifter, Preordain, Ponder, and interaction in the form of Counterspell and the occasional Deprive. Otherwise, they don't have a great set of wincons, sweepers, or removal, so they need another color to get those.
In comparison, black has Gurmag Angler, a great wincon, and the best removal in the forms of Evincar's Justice, Echoing Decay, Shrivel, Pestilence, Cuombajj Witches, Disfigure, Chainer's Edict, Oubliette, Doom Blade, they have lifegain, discard like Duress, Distress, Chittering Rats, card draw like Phyrexian Rager, Thorn of the Black Rose, Sign in Blood, and mono-colored payoffs like Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Tendrils of Corruption. There are even more great control cards from hate like Nihil Spellbomb, efficient spells like Cartouche of Ambition that just do a lot, land destruction like Choking Sands, more discard that is splashable like Addle, and the other following cards:
Diabolic Edict, Wrench Mind, Raven's Crime, Innocent Blood (for creatureless lists), Dead Weight, Crypt Incursion, Complete Disregard, Nausea, Reaping the Graves, Undying Evil, Read the Bones, Divest, Rancid Earth, Icequake, Dusk Legion Zealot, Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Tragic Slip, Crypt Rats, Stinkweed Imp
That isn't to say a good mix of both isn't the best option, it probably is. You lose the mono-black payoffs, but get Probe, Forbidden Alchemy, Soul Manipulation. Really though, black is more useful than blue.

Hey there! if you want some additional counter/removal something like Psychic Strike is a pretty decent budget card. Counters and mills at the same time. Supreme Will is a popular card running in standard, so obtaining one would be pretty easy. For on the spot removal, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, or Complete Disregard would be right up your alley. Hope this helps!

I think I see where you're coming from. The reason that I went with a build like this was to create both redundancy and flexibility. Underhanded Designs is not overtly powerful, but the flexibility to play extra kill spells and extra Zulaport Cutthroat in the same card was appealing. Yahenni can likely go, as I should have plenty of sac' outlets between Hidden Stockpile and Syndicate Trafficker.
I have recently been playing the deck with Smothering Abomination in place of Herald of Anguish just due to cost, and it does ok. I definitely do not want to run too much fat on the top end though. An extra Herald and Abomination would just cost too much to leave up mana for Syndicate Trafficker or clues or Hidden Stockpile. Herald dodges Dynavolt Tower and Fatal Push and allows me to sac' spare Servo Schematics for value. Abomination is super sweet when it goes off though.
As for Grasp of Darkness, I have been going back and forth between it, Complete Disregard, and Stasis Snare. Complete Disregard hits a surprising amount of decks. All of B/G, most of Mardu vehicles (notably turns off Scrapheap Scrounger forever) and turns off Saheeli combo. Stasis Snare is the same, but can hit a creature-Gideon as well as gearhulks. Grasp of Darkness is cheaper though, which is a big deal. The deck definitely has a lot of tinkering left though, for sure. Thanks for your input!
