MagicalHacker on MagicalHacker - List of All Board Wipe Cards

2 weeks ago

RikuMurasaki, you have no idea how badly I wish I could find a way to put it onto this list! It did a lot of amazing things for my Etali deck on my YouTube channel, but I think that might have more to do with how it often times would clear the way for Etali, Primal Storm to attack.

In your opinion, would it make sense to make a list of cards that hose indestructible or a list of cards that can wipe away all planeswalkers? To me, both of those sound way to situational.

When it comes to the math of it, because EDHREC says that it is way more common for a 6-toughness creature to be played than a 5-toughness creature to be played, if I am trying to set the threshold of damage to a non-arbitrary amount, it has to be set to 6. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Raphstow, unfortunately, as per the fourth point of what is excluded from the list, Harsh Mercy has the same problem as Divine Reckoning in that neither card can wipe away the scariest creature from the board. In mono white, some other powerful board wipes that can be played for 3 mana or less include Planar Collapse, Citywide Bust, Retribution of the Meek, Slaughter the Strong, and Hour of Revelation (if there are 10 or more nonlands on the battlefield). With these available, I don't think it's worth modifying that rule to include a card I think will not do enough in enough situations. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Sorry, I got busy with a lot of stuff after my vacation ended! Liking the new changes. I actually have been experimenting a bit with Etali, Primal Storm and have found some fun interactions, though I haven't completed my deck because I find it bothersome to keep bouncing some of the cards from decks I play way more often. So one thing that's really fun is Strionic Resonator with any mana rock that taps for two, let's say Sol Ring and Paradox Engine. Since Strionic Resonator's copy of Etali's ability is an exact copy (triggered ability and the ruling says the source of the copy is the same as the original), you can keep tapping the Sol Ring and Strionic Resonator to copy the copy until you can't cast spells off Etali's ability anymore (all players exiling a land).

I've been liking Sensei's Divining Top in the deck for controlling what I exile off the ability and being able to put it on top for a free cast and draw what I want if it's a land or something I want to cast later like a boardwipe.

Finally, I've been putting big fat Eldrazis on the list, along with Blightsteel Colossus with ways to cheat them out other than Etali's ability (Quicksilver Amulet, Planar Bridge, Sneak Attack) along with Warstorm Surge to blast people for tons of damage. Sarkhan's Unsealing is a sick include, I think I'll try it out! Other than that, I've had a lot of success with the haste enablers for all creatures in monored like Fervor, Hammer of Purphoros, Anger, and Urabrask the Hidden. This is all I've thought of in regards to the commander, hope some of the suggestions help!!

Sneak Attack reasonable cost and pretty cheap to cheat dragons from hand, i never tried because i don't like so much the idea of losing them, but it is something that caught my attention.

God-Pharaoh's Gift Don't like the cost, but the ability is interesting, i didn't even knew this card, thanks for showing, but i think the problem is losing it for the discard hand mechanics or not having the mana for casting it once it is exiled.

Etali, Primal Storm Pretty good, but not a dragon lol, i'm going to get all the non dragons out as soon as they get better dragons.

Warp World Know the effect well, avoiding this kind of cost.

Archwing Dragon For many times i get him in and out, because i hate when i loose him to the discard mechanics.

Cathartic Reunion, Sunbird's Invocation and many options for "draw" in red i already used, the thing is i made the deck low costa dragons exactly for Grafted Skullcap, Avaricious Dragon and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker.

going to see your deck right now, thanks for the tips.

Did you tried Sneak Attack? Or God-Pharaoh's Gift? I think they are good way to cheat or recur your dragons. Or another Incredible red card to cheat your creatures is Etali, Primal Storm.

Since you have a lot of strong creatures I would recommend using Guild Feud. You can always choose the control player without any creatures to allow to only you to put a creature into play. Or your creature should win the fight.

Another similar card I use in my zirilan list is Warp World. This way you can sometimes cheat a lot of your dragons into play.

I would recommend using Archwing Dragon to trigger your cmd every turn.

And I rather use Cathartic Reunion or Sunbird's Invocation than using Grafted Skullcap.

Response to Vargavaka comment.

It ramps like crazy almost have no problem with the CMC. I am having trouble with control decks; they are able to destroy my one or two big creatures leaving me with little cards in hand and a bunch of useless equipment. I’m thinking about upping the number of draw cards.
I do have several things to protect me against wrath effects like Teferi's Protection, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Boros Charm, and Wild Ricochet If the spell is targeted. I also can tutor for Teferi and Wild Ricochet with Sunforger. I have more trouble with repeated single target removal then I do wrath effects, but Selfless Spirit dose sound very good option. I can also reoccur its effect with Sun Titan.
Remove:

  • Treasure Nabber: Likely to get removed if non green, little effect on green players.
  • Archangel of Thune: Not going wide, most of the time I have few creatures on battlefield making the effect very weak.
  • Angelic Skirmisher: Most other angel have one or more of the effects granted, making it less powerful.
  • Blade of Selves: Not enough ETB effects or synergy. CMC high to equip.

Adding Cards:

  • Combustible Gearhulk: More card draw, with high CMC can do massive damage with commander out. Synergizes well with commander and top card manipulation.
  • Etali, Primal Storm: Cheating cards in to play. Synergizes well with high CMC deck and top card manipulation.
  • Druidic Satchel: Good Ramp and Blockers. Synergizes well with top card manipulation.
  • Selfless Spirit: Good protect from board wipes, and repeatable with Sun Titan.
