Descend upon the Sinful Discussion

You may also want to consider using board wipes that exile instead of destroy in the case of indestructible creatures with hex proof and/ or giving -X/-X.

Here's a few cards to consider:

Angel of the Dire Hour
Descend upon the Sinful
False Prophet

Thanks for commenting! I'll go through each of your suggestions.

Emeria, The Sky Ruin is probably not what this deck wants. I plan on steering towards more of a land destruction route with Armageddon and Cataclysm, and without Crucible of Worlds due to budgetary restrictions, I don't think I can effectively use it. Also, there's only nine Plains in the deck, which is not enough to trigger it reliably. I run Emeria in another monowhite deck of mine and still rarely get to trigger it.

Phyrexian Rebirth is pretty comparable to Descend upon the Sinful in my list. I might exchange them and test to see how powerful a gigantic Horror will be, but I'm thinking the exiling and evasion DutS gives me might be more valuable. Plus I have it in foil.

Sensei's Divining Top has been added to my maybeboard. I guess its price dropped since the last time I tried to get one, so I can afford it now. I would absolutely have considered it before.

Sure, I'll add in Descend upon the Sinful, and I don't mind sending first. I'll get everything together tonight and get it in the mail tomorrow after work. Since I haven't traded on here before, how do people typically send each other their addresses?

I don't know if I missed it, but how are you playing Descend upon the Sinful with no white mana?

Pros in Mardu1. Manaless Reanimate every turn2. Haste3. ETB triggers

Cons in Mardu1. Exile as a cost2. Creatures become 4/4 (weaker)3. Does not synergize with other reanimate cards (liliana and refurbish) due to con 14. Dead draw with one in play

The cons are the reason i have backed them out of the deck. I would rather reanimate with refurbish and lili than G-PG bc they dont get exiled and come in full power.

Consider...Turn 4 GPG, reanimate combustible to a 4/4(normally a 6/6) and if you attack you utilize the haste, if not, you exiled a creature to bring it back weaker. Well, what comes available turn 5? Sweepers. Even if you play a sweeper, you cannot reanimate that creature again. If the game turns into a chessmatch (like vs control) youve lost the resource for good (remember you only have 12* creatures). Also consider that the creature is a token and for 1 measly blue mana, Unsummon... feels bad.

Compare...Turn 4 refurbish on combustible. No option for haste but still an option for damage. Hes a 6/6. So turn 5 sweeper hits. Our turn 5 can be lili for the reanimate and ETB again! Currently no SWEEPER exiles (now that Descend upon the Sinful rotated) and only one deals more than 5 damage (Star of Extinction heavy cost) so he is significantly harder to kill. Unsummon? Recast or dump into gy again. What about Abrade? Same as with sweeper, it gea to gy for turn 5 lili reanimate and second etb... feels better!

Side notesI like GPG a lot! Just not in mardu. I have an Esper (WUB) reanimator im finishing up that uses creatures like Angel of Invention with fabricate. GPG them in as a 4/4 tack on their fabricate counters and generally you have a 6/6 haste with some tricks... feels better that way.

shadow63....Neheb, the Eternal

I love Neheb, Narset, Enlightened Master(my commanders), and Descend upon the Sinful for the art!

Gotta echo the hate for Overflowing Insight. It deserves it.

Eternity Vessel also sucks.

Hey there! Welcome to EDH! I have a few suggestions for you:

I unfortunately have to go work on something else now, but I wish you the best of luck/skill with your deck! Enjoy!

Qolorful on Sigarda, Host of Herons EDH

The umbra cards are fantastic for sigarda. She is already really hard to take out with hexproof and anti-sacrifice, making boardwipes and blocking the only way to take her out. Totem armor gives her pseudo-indestructible which makes her a serious pain to deal with, and aside from Descend upon the Sinful and Final Judgement there isn't really a way to remove her at that point

Some good ones to consider are Bear Umbra, Hyena Umbra, Snake Umbra, and Boar Umbra to name a few. There may be some you prefer to those, but those are off the top of my head
