Decimate Discussion

Azeworai on The "Rain of Gore" Debacle

1 day ago

So, as of yesterday, Wizards of the Coast announced on the most controversial Secret Lairs as of yet, arguably more so than Walking Dead.

This is specifically with "Party Hard, Shred Harder." The selected cards do indeed have a rather stark, vehement naming convention, yet they opted to include Decimate. This is a rather beseeming card, but I reckon there are ones with far better names.

Wizards needs to learn from the community that there are even edgier names of cards from Magic's past, so type the top three of your choice!

I shall get this started: Brand of Ill Omen, Cry of the Carnarium, and Liturgy of Blood.

Have fun with it. :)

Potential Non-Boros Commanders: Show

Profet93 on Xenagos, I've Got You Here For 3 Minutes

You described almost every Xenagos deck, mine included. You hit it right on the head.

As you said, we either have it or we don't. With no way to tutor card draw, adding more helps increase the odds of maintaining gas

Lifeblood Hydra - Not necessary but always welcome on X = 3 or more. Even if they destroy it, you still get value, has built in evasion and has a high ceiling.

Life's Legacy - If blue is too prevalent in your meta, ignore this suggestion

Momentous Fall - Similar to above, but would still put in despite blue, and despite the fact that its hard to have 4 mana after casting a beater. But similar to rishkar's expertise, I argue the potential card draw is worth the risk. You usually use this in response to opponent's removal

Bonders' Enclave - Never hurts, coudl replace a fetch land possibly

Elder Gargaroth - Makes beasts for blockers/draw spells, draws cards and gains life in a pinch.

Harmonize - Reliable draw

Beast Within - Hits lands too. Very versatile

Decimate - Hull breach's older brother

Inferno Titan - Damage

Kogla, the Titan Ape - Fight + Naturalize, pretty good. Very fun if you ran eternal witness

Voracious Hydra - Removal with high ceiling and built in evasion

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - Ramp on steroids

Ancient Tomb - Ramp for T3 Commander

Turntimber, Serpentine Wood - A better See the Unwritten

Berserk - Don't worry, malignus doesn't have trample. Bonus points if you use it on Selvala or on an opponent's creature who is attacking another opponent.

Yavimaya Hollow - Protection

Blighted Woodland/Myriad Landscape - Ramp

Reliquary Tower - For when you draw 10+ cards

Raging Ravine/Dread Statuary - Manland to be used for a draw spell

Be sure to lmk what you think of each suggestion. Some will work better for you than others. I see you run some dorks so I know you don't want too many nonbasics, but with all the ramp in Xenagos, I think we can be a little greedy. If you can't find room, I have ideas for cuts.

EpoH on Wort, The Whore Mother

Reeeaaaaly liked your deck, looks pretty solid and fun to play! I also, for the life of me, cannot get rid of Dragon Broodmother

Has Young Pyromancer shown good results for you? It never did a lot for me and it was mostly just a blocker, but that's because my LGS meta revolves arround early infect damage haha

Have you consider the new MDFL? Bala Ged Recovery  Flip is pretty cheap and Valakut Awakening  Flip can get arround bad hands, be a "3 mana: Draw a card" aaand it can be a land!

Decimate was one of the best cuts i made in my deck, traded for Abrade and between Kaalia of the Vast, Rafiq of the Many and that god-forsaken Land that turns into an flying infect creature, i think it was pretty worth it but, then again, kinda early hitting playgroup.

Again, i really liked the way you've built this. if you'd be so kind as to take a look at my wort, and see anything i might improve, i'd really appreciate it ;)

Decimate - 4 in 1 removal

Life's Legacy - Draw

Tooth and Nail - Wincon/tutor

The Great Henge - Draw, lifegain, pump

Deflecting Swat - Counter counterspells, redirect targetted removal, draw, extra turns and more, for free!

Heroic Intervention - In response to removal

Momentous Fall - See above

Soul's Fire > Fling - Since you don't need to sac the creature as an additional cost which is noteworthy around blue. The difference is minimal, but should be noted.

Berserk - Don't worry, malignus doesn't have trample.... Greater Good - If you listen to any suggestion, this is it. The most important card in your deck, hands down. Draw a bunch of cards, filter what you dont need, all in response to removal. Can't get any better

I have some ideas for cuts and other suggestions should you wish. Be sure to let me know what you think of each one and if you want others :)

Guys... Force of Will and Pact of Negation are rare... and you just have to get creative with your removal. Artifact Mutation/Aura Mutation, Attrition, Bedevil, Berserk, Bounty Agent, Decimate, Dimir Charm, Dreadbore THE LIST GOES ON

Decimate is a nice 4 spot removal for 4 Mana.

If we want to run a land destruction suite we certainly can, but no matter what, people gonna get salty. Targeted removal is going to be less salt-inducing than mass land destruction (MLD), but it's gonna make people upset enough to counter punch you a bit. You gotta acknowledge and be prepared for that if you're going to do getting upset if someone reacts to you blowing a few land by knocking you for 20 (even if it may be an overreaction). Picking and choosing your targets carefully instead of going for everything will also help. We can also be sneaky about like Decimate, Star of Extinction, and Terastodon aren't explicitly or primarily land destruction, but they hit land anyways, and people are less likely to be upset at that.

Here's what I'm looking at for big spells (I would pick 4 or so at most): In Garruk's Wake, Rise of the Dark Realms, Liege of the Tangle, Praetor's Counsel, Terastodon, Star of Extinction, Destructive Force, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Boundless Realms
