Eternal of Harsh Truths Discussion

Ricci on Bolas Midrange

Hi oldmanm0nk3y, thank you for your comment. No, I'll use this deck tomorrow in the Standard Showdown. What do you think I should do? I could add some Lightning Axes or Unsummons to have even more control... Or more creatures, like Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, a fourth Earthshaker Khenra maybe, some Aerial Guides that play well with the Eternal of Harsh Truths?

Eternal of Harsh Truths and Ammit Eternal seems like unnecessary in control deck.

Maybe more Glorybringers and another Kefnet the Mindful would do the job better.

Manabase looks veery slow as you play 8 cycle lands that enters the battlefield always tapped and only 2 fastlands. But if you play just casual games these things doesn't really matter.

Control decks usually run more than 20 lands. Since your deck has a low CMC i would cut the 2 Aven of Enduring Hope for 2 extra lands. Also, try swapping some of the single colored lands for duals like Irrigated Farmland, Lumbering Falls, Scattered Groves and Fortified Village or maybe some Evolving Wilds.

The current standard metagame is full of aggro decks, maybe running Primal Druid instead of Manalith and Traveler's Amulet is a good idea. Thraben Inspector is a great card, i would totally swap some of your less impactful creatures like Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs, God-Pharaoh's Faithful and Eternal of Harsh Truths for a set of Thraben Inspector. Also consider swapping Beneath the Sands for Shefet Monitor. Traverse the Ulvenwald is amazing but kinda pricey.

Life goes on is a card i would definetly try to cut for something better. Cards that just gain life are often not worth of a deck slot. Ambuscade is not suited for control decks. Both cards could be swapped for sweepers like Fumigate or Descend upon the Sinful or better spot removal like Cast Out.

Choosing which creatures to run on a control deck is very diferent from choosing creatures for aggro/midrange decks. On control you almost always divide your creatures between support creatures and finishers. The only finishers you have are 2 Striped Riverwinder so i recommend adding some combination of Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Linvala, the Preserver and Angel of Sanctions for a total of 6 or 7 finishers. Casting a Shefet Monitor can also help you close the game but it doesn't have any evasion so i would use them almost exclusively to ramp.

Of your remaining creatures Sidewinder Naga feels really out of place because it is an aggressive, midrange creature on a control deck, Tireless Tracker makes a lot more sense as a support creature.

Unsummon bounce effect is best suited on decks built to exploit the tempo advantage it gives or aggressive decks where temporarily removing a blocker can make a big difference so i would swap it for Spring or Nissa's Renewal.

SlyBlu7 on Draft League N00B, HELP!

Hey guys - just entered a draft league. They let us pick up 4 packs to start (2 ANK, 2 HOU) and build 30 card decks from there. I think I got the short end of the pulls. Especially when I look at the awesome (frustratingly so) pulls that my GF got, who is even more of a newbie to the game. Anyway, this is what I put together:

Creatures Frilled Sandwalla , Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Naga Vitalist, Dune Beetle , Wretched Camel, Ruin Rat, Bitterblade Warrior , Sidewinder Naga , Ornery Kudu , Giant Spider , Bitterbow Sharpshooters

Spells Compelling Argument, Gift of Strength , Synchronized Strike , Splendid Agony, Cartouche of Ambition, Torment of Venom

Artifacts Traveler's Amulet, Bontu's Monument, Oketra's Monument

Land Ipnu Rivulet, Desert of the Glorified, Desert of the Indomitable, Grasping Dunes,1Island, 4Forest, 2Swamp

The idea that I had was to go BG for tossing -1/-1 with Vizier, and having some creatures and pumps. Splashed U for milling.

What else did I pull? Garbage, I think. White was especially thin, which is sad because it's one of my favorite colors.

White Mighty Leap , Oketra's Avenger , Forsake the Worldly , Dauntless Aven , Sandblast

Blue Strategic Planning, Spellweaver Eternal, Labyrinth Guardian , Ancient Crab , Eternal of Harsh Truths, Tragic Lesson, Illusory Wrappings , Shimmerscale Drake , Striped Riverwinder, Open Into Wonder

Black Liliana's Defeat, Shadow of the Grave, Doomfall, Razaketh, the Foulblooded

Red Crash Through, Pathmaker Initiate, Nef-Crop Entangler , Blur of Blades, Open Fire, Pursue Glory , Manticore Eternal , Hazoret's Undying Fury, Desert Cerodon

Aftermath Onward / Victory

Land Sunscorched Desert, Shefet Dunes

Now, my list of cards is recorded at the store, so I can change the deck but obviously cannot add any cards from elsewhere. I'm wondering if I shouldn't have featured Red in the deck, maybe just cut my losses and went RG to keep it simple. Can anyone help me out? It's fairly casual, but I don't really want to get my head caved in for the next two months of MtG.Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

I would go down one Ammit Eternal and one Eternal of Harsh Truths for the pouncers. Maybe 2 Eternal of Harsh Truths. The card draw is nice but being able to block and kill every other eternalize creature in the format is better.

DrLitebur on When Bolas has the tables turned...

TheBoyless: Adorned Pouncer is a good thought, and the addition to the deck seems solid, however I may have to think about adding it to be sideboarded in, instead of mainboard. I am going to make one switch, when they get here/I acquire them:

+4 Eternal of Harsh Truths

-1 Glint-Nest Crane, -1 Nissa's Renewal, -2 Hieroglyphic Illumination

The reason? It makes more of a "prisoner's dilemma", especially when it comes out of the graveyard. It is either 4 damage or 2 damage and a card drawn. That is a bad choice to have to make your opponent make. That is why I think the card is a great addition to the deck.

Can I say I love the Afflict mechanic?

When Bolas has the tables turned is my deck I am working with. I am going to put in some Eternal of Harsh Truths for 1 Cloudblazer, 1 Glint-Nest Crane, and the 2 Hieroglyphic Illuminations. The reason is that card is a beast to begin with, giving them even more of a prisoner's dilemma and makes it even worse when it comes back as a 4/4 zombie.
