Damnation Discussion

EldraziOfRavnica on My Meren Deck

Spark Harvest is probably better than Severed Strands. Crashing Centaur is a little slow for a discard outlet at six mana. The shroud is nice, but you might want to consider Bog Witch. Costly Plunder is strictly better than Altar's Reap. Talisman of Resilience is good ramp, and a wrath or two lie Crux of Fate or Damnation might be good, depending on your budget. Stitcher's Supplier is very good self mill, as is Satyr Wayfinder. Cut Windgrace Acolyte for one of those, or some other, cheaper self mill if you can't find those two. Deathgreeter does Sultai Flayer's role better than the Flayer.

Looking for board wipes? Wrath of God, Damnation, Bontu's Last Reckoning and Dusk / Dawn are my top-of-the-head suggestions. And Dusk / Dawn is another recursion engine!

Did you consider running Kindred Dominance either in place of or alongside Damnation? Seems to me like the extra mana cost is worth it, but I suppose if your meta is fast, maybe not. Also, I guess if you can find Bloodbond March, it doesn't matter.

Return to Dust is more expensive but work better than Disenchant in some cases. Any white deck which is not green might want to play Land Tax or Smothering Tithe Some good card draw card which you are missing out on is Phyrexian Arena

Some very good white removals are Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares and Generous Gift since it can target anything. Vindicate is good aswell but just sorcery speed.

And since you are not playing that many creatures myb include smth like Damnation, Decree of Pain, Plague Wind, Overwhelming Forces, Wrath of God

And that's just me, but i like to throw in a Mana Tithe just to catch some people of gurad, they dont expect a counterspell from a white/black deck.

Providing budget alternatives is not that simple because the deck is balanced as is and changing any single card would alter its equilibrium. I will try my best, but do keep in mind that with the following changes you will need to play the deck a lot slower than before. Without free counterspells you will need to wait for when you can leave mana open, and so on and so forth. Hopefully, the fact that all the decks in the tournament follow the same budget restrictions can make up for this. Here are my budget changes:

Mana Crypt and Mox Amber: any two-mana rock, like Arcane Signet and Mind Stone.

Force of Will and Fierce Guardianship: a copy of Foil and Dispel. Depending on your specific meta, you could consider Mental Misstep.

Mana Drain: any two-mana counterspell. My choice would be Countersquall.

Ancient Tomb: a basic Island.

Cyclonic Rift: Echoing Truth. This can bounce a single permanent or an army of tokens, which seems particularly useful in your case.

Damnation and Toxic Deluge: your choice of Languish, Whelming Wave, Evacuation or AEtherize.

Dark Confidant: I once used Disciple of Deceit, which was suboptimal. Alternatively, Looter il-Kor or any draw spell.

Intuition, Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor: Diabolic Tutor, Forbidden Alchemy and Beseech the Queen are okayish.

Training Grounds: Heartstone is the closest comparison, but do keep in mind it works for your opponents as well.

These are all direct substitutions. I took the cards you mentioned and replaced them with their budget counterparts. If you think some of them aren't good enough (and in most cases they are not), then you can consider including something completely different instead. I'm thinking about cards like Propaganda, Torpor Orb, more removal, more card draw, more ramp. You have the privilege of knowing the decks you will be facing, so you can tweak the deck according to your matchups.

If you want to be prepared against a token deck, try shaving some single target removals or counterspells for a few extra board wipes. Just be extra careful against Meren because they tend to play a lot of Fleshbag Marauder-like effects, which is something this deck really struggles with. Make use of your haste enablers to kill your opponent during the very first turn you play Lazav, before he or she has the opportunity to play those cards.

I wish you good luck for your tournament, and let me know about your results!

Referencing Green's Hexproof, as well as Reality Smasher, using Sphinx of New Prahv's formatting:

Kessig Porcupine

Creature - Beast

As an additional cost to cast a spell that targets Kessig Porcupine, that's spell's controller must discard a card.

3/2


I imagine this would be a solid common in limited formats. Esp. with auras and mutate.


I'd like a card with one short line of text.

I love Armageddon, Murder, and Wrath of God for their epic look. I want a card that would look great like that. Btw, I absolutely hate tjhe fact that the un-keyworded "Bury". Damnation Could look epic just like the Wrath of God before... I digress...

kalfred16 There are so many options for good board wipes, you need to decide which suits your deck and play style the best. Here are some good ones that come to my mind that I often find myself playing:

  • Merciless Eviction = I play this on almost every black and white deck I have, I think offers nice flexibility when paired with other boardwipes.

  • Blasphemous Act = Really solid creature board wipe that you 9/10 times get to cast with the single red mana.

  • Wrath of God / Damnation = The classic white board wipe and its black counterpart, I used to play Wrath of God a lot before they started making other board wipes with other effects.

  • Fumigate = This card is great and I am sad I am not playing it as much as I should because it's amazing when the battlefield is full of creatures and you get to cast that and gain all the life (it once enable me to get back into the game and win, I was almost out of life and then got to replenish my points with it).

  • Cleansing Nova = Also one that offers nice flexibility.

  • Winds of Abandon = White's own Cyclonic Rift, you need to be careful with this since you could end up giving your opponents huge advantage if you cast it careless.

  • Ruinous Ultimatum = A newcomer from the latest set, I have not been able to play it with yet but I love the aspect of "Kill them all!" in it and I think it fits Marchesa's flavor nicely.

  • Tragic Arrogance / Mythos of Snapdax = Hits all players and leaves a single permanent of each type on the battlefield but you get to choose which ones, sometimes really good if opponents have lots of different stuff on the field.

  • Hallowed Burial / Terminus = Sometimes putting all creatures on the bottom of the library is much better than putting them in the graveyard, especially good if your opponents are running reanimator decks.

  • Austere Command = Probably the best board wipe when it comes to flexibility.
