hungry000 Thank you so much for your help. I will look into cutting some cards to get me down to 60 but after a couple of play tests today at 66 I actually did pretty well. I will still end up switching out my 2x Condemn & 2x Oust for 4x Path to Exile . Appreciate everything!

hungry000 I have updated my deck once again with Condemn and Oust . I am noticing I am currently at 66 cards. Should I run with 66 or should I cut 6 cards?

Also for my Main Playset I was still debating if I should order Thraben Inspector , Ranger of Eos ,and a couple Proclamation of Rebirth . If I did order these what cards would need to be cut given I still go with a 60 card deck? Are these cards even necessary given my deck as it stands right now.

Thanks.

Get rid of Manalith , Pristine Talisman , and Darksteel Ingot for the Talismans: Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Dominance , and Talisman of Progress . Condemn should be replaced by something like Utter End , Anguished Unmaking , Murder , Go for the Throat , or some better removal spell that will actually remove something. You are running in here, so play to it's strengths. Instead of Curse of the Swine , I'd run something more like In Garruk's Wake or Plague Wind . Yeah, they are a high CMC, but they're budget, and one-sided. Day of Judgment would be a decent option, too.

You're running Wizard's Retort with only one Wizard in your deck. Cut it for 2 CMC counterspell or another removal piece.

Book of Rass is Book of Ass in this deck; the only colors I run Book of Rass in is Boros, because Boros sucks at card draw. With all the lifegain, Necropotence could be worth the risk to run. can be tough to pull off in a three-color deck, but it might be worth a shot in this deck with all the lifegain. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Erebos, God of the Dead are other options to consider.

Sure. I'd use all of the cards you ordered besides Thalia's Lieutenant , which isn't great here since there aren't enough Humans in your deck to make good use of it and it's more suited for an aggro plan. You should have a playset of Inquisition, Lingering Souls , Martyr of Sands , Squadron Hawk , and 2 Day of Judgment in the main, with the other 2 Days of Judgment in the sideboard (assuming you got a playset of it). Cut 1  Dusk / Dawn , 2  Fumigate , 1  Ironwright's Cleansing , 3  Never / Return , 1  Decommission , 2  Gideon's Reproach , 1 Approach of the Second Sun , 1 Renewed Faith , 1 Restoration Gearsmith , 1 Aerial Responder , 2 Grasp of Darkness , 1 Authority of the Consuls , and 1 Murder to make room.

There are functional replacements for Path that you can use: Condemn and Oust . I'd replace the Fatal Push, Murder, and 2 Grasps of Darkness with a 2/2 split of those until you get Paths since you want as many white cards as possible for Martyr. You might also want to consider getting Thraben Inspector for some card draw, Ranger of Eos to get more Martyrs, and a couple Proclamation of Rebirth .

Maybe consider replacing the Ixalan's Bindings and Prison Realms with some more inexpensive (mana wise) removal like Condemn or Blessed Alliance . I agree with Xerxez that you should up your count on plating and vault skirge. Also consider Springleaf Drum - it allows you to cast your tempered steel a lot easier and even might allow you to dip a few cards into other colors between it and glimmervoid.

Sideboard is vastly dependent on what you're playing against, so for this I'll assume your friends are playing a wide variety of current meta decks. Graveyard decks are huge right now, so you'll want some yard hate like Rest in Peace or Relic of Progenitus . 5c humans is still big, and they're definitely faster than you. Whipflare is a great way to sweep their legs out from under them in the early turns so you can overwhelm them. It can also come in against a number of other decks that you just can't beat in a race (like goblins or elves, for example). Some inexpensive artifact removal like Wear or Ancient Grudge can also be invaluable. Revoke Existence is another option if you're determined to stay mono-white. Tron is still big because it's Tron so of course it's big. That same cheap artifact removal is great for sniping their maps before they can activate them, or even eating a wurmcoil as a makeshift removal spell. You also have Damping Sphere , which is just hilarious if you can land it against them. Also works nicely against storm and to a lesser extent Phoenix. Company combo shouldn't be too hard for you since you can already snipe their pieces with Walking Ballista, but you could try Ghirapur AEther Grid if you're having trouble with the matchup. Against burn I guess you just cry? Whipflare has some potential in that matchup but not much... Something like Revitalize , potentially? You don't have a lot of good options there. And for the mirror match just bring in that same artifact removal I mentioned before.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

That’s a fair point. The two spells serve very different purposes, but mainly they just act as copies 5-6 of Path to Exile . I play Oust because its fail case is far better than Condemn ’s, in that hitting your own creature with it can be cornercase beneficial.

In truth, it wouldn’t hurt to play both. I just really like having the fourth Cryptic Command at my disposal.

Daveslab2022 Great question! I currently am testing with Condemn (I have the promo version in my maybeboard atm), but I think I like Oust more for two main reasons:

  • First off, Oust is really nice in the Burn matchup because you can loop it with Snapcaster Mage . Oust on Snappy into drawing Snappy and flashing back Oust is big game, and can even win you the game. Six life is two burn spells.

  • Second, Condemn 's requirement for the creature to be attacking does nothing against creature-based combo. While admittedly it is a game-ender against Death's Shadow , it feels super bad to hold up Condemn when there's a Devoted Druid sitting across the table.

TL; DR Condemn is great against Grixis Death's Shadow but I'm currently preferring Oust 's utility.

Appreciate the comment!
