Eternal Witness Discussion

Hoschie on Retreat to Oboro

I like this +1 .... 2 thing for you:

First: Deprive could be good here. I mean you don'T mind picking up lands and if you want to play Tolaria West it will be even better.

Second: You could think about Eternal Witness or some thing similar.... You could mill your self with Hedron Crab and later pick what ever you need.

Forceofnature1 on Riku Tokens Synthetic Polymorph Warp Aurora Fun

1 day ago

Toss in Skyshroud Claim, Yavimaya Elder, Farseek, and Hunting Wilds, get yourself some shocklands, and get rid of those signets.

You don't use a ton of enchantments or artifacts other than those, and rightfully so, Riku can ramp soooo hard and then you can punish other people for relying on enchantments and artifacts. Tranquil Grove is great for that and red has plenty of spells that say "destroy opponent's artifacts" haha.

You should definitely run a Snapcaster Mage in place of a land as he can trigger so much fun stuff for you. Couple him with the Eternal Witness or one of your bouncers and he is just an abuse king. E Wit is strictly better than the Skullwinder, deathtouch or no, giving an opponent choice pick of his graveyard is a big mistake.

clayperce on Sideboarding Ponza for competitive(ish) meta?

3 days ago

Ok, after everyone's comments, here are my thoughts ...

GOOD MATCH-UPS (Bant Knightfall, UW Control, GBx Midrange, Jeskai Control, Death's Shadow): Mainboard is fine; no sideboard slots needed.




  • The more I think about it, the more I think Beast Within is the key. Say an opponent casts Scapeshift and sacrifices 7 Lands to fetch 6 Mountains (basics and non-basics) and a Valakut. All the Lands enter simultaneously and 6 Valakut triggers go on the stack. With the triggers on the stack, I kill a Mountain. The trigger from that Mountain will resolve and I'll take 3 damage. But the triggers from the other 5 Mountains fizzle, since "the ability will do nothing if [my opponent controls] fewer than 5 Mountains other than that new one by the time it resolves" (source).
  • Beast Within is also superb against a resolved Primeval Titan.
  • I might be able to catch an inexperienced pilot with Crumble to Dust, but an experienced pilot will wait until the last second (i.e., fetching them with Scapeshift) to play their Valakut. Crumble may still be worthwhile though ... partly for free wins against less experienced pilots, but mostly because hitting Stomping Ground will leave most decks with only 10 Mountains ... depending on the board state, that will often not be enough for lethal.
  • Blood Moon is of course amazing in the match-up, but post-board they will almost certainly have Engineered Explosives and Reclamation Sage to deal with it. Still, Blood moon #5 may be worthwhile.





The bottom line (for now anyways) ...

Main: 1x Obstinate Baloth

Yep and Voyaging Satyr can untap it so you can tap it for devotion again, and if you are looking for other non basic lands there's Treetop Village and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood

Ya it sounds like Polukranos would have done work on that board. If you want to continually repeat the Polukranos ability you could add Temur Sabertooth. You can activate the Sabertooth to pick up creatures and replay them, like Polukranos, and then Monstrosity again. It also works well with other creatures that have excellent enter the battlefield abilities like Eternal Witness, Wistful Selkie, and Nylea's Disciple.

What do you think of Regal Force over Mastery, it draws a ton of cards and adds to your Devotion?

1 of the Spell Snares, 1 Eternal Witness, and a Thing in the Ice  Flip, and Seeker of the Way could be removed to make space for a playset of Snappys.

From my own experience Geist of Saint Traft is better than Thing in the Ice  Flip. Geist's hexproof makes him much harder to remove than Thing in the Ice  Flip.

I would also suggest removing 1 of the Jace, Architect of Thought, a Spreading Seas and the Negate for 3 copies of Remand.

Torment of Hailfire needs around 20 mana to start REALLY putting the screws to people (this is also assuming no one is shitting out tokens and just laughs at you demanding they sac 18 of them). If you have 20 mana in this deck, go win... you can just Yawgmoth's Will to re-use your Demonic Tutor to go find Tooth and Nail, or you your Eternal Witness to get it back, or flashback your Mystical Teachings to find your Snapcaster Mage to replay the Demonic Tutor, leaving you 10 mana to entwine it and have a Flusterstorm backup.

What I am trying to say is, I would rather have like 10 or 12 other cards in my hand than Torment of Hailfire if I ever had enough mana to make Torment of Hailfire sound appealing.

Like he said this deck is about WINNING, not making your opponent suffer through horrible choices. Torment of Hailfire needs to be in a shell that is built to drag the game on a very long time and attrition your opponents out. Damia is trying to end the game by turn 8, if that does not happen by turn 8 it may run out of steam and get taken out of the game because it is not built to win an attrition war. It is built to ramp to, find, and entwine Tooth and Nail to win the game.

Conjurer's Closet to blink commander to reset who the effect hits (or blinking duplicate or reclamation sage)? Eternal Witness for recursion? E wit also works with closet.

If you want a lockdown deck there are plenty of stax decks for derevi. Mine goes that way to and it had some great results. You can check it out. Beware though...if you have a casual gaming group it's not fun.

Your deck seems to have a good base. I would add Eternal Witness and Cyclonic Rift. Manglehorn is ok, but Reclamation Sage and Authority of the Consuls is better.
