Extirpate

Instant

Split second (As long as this spell is on the stack, players can't play spells or activated abilities that aren't mana abilities.)

Choose target card in a graveyard other than a basic land card. Search its owner's graveyard, hand, and library for all cards with the same name as that card and exile them. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

I've been looking for a substitute for Sign in Blood , Extirpate can still be useful game one. That could be a good answer for all the decisions with planeswalkers. [email protected]

Thanks for the suggestion

Lol. I like how you mixed in land destruction here. I do have a few questions like such as, why Memoricide over Extirpate or Sorcerous Spyglass over Pithing Needle? Also, it seems like the only way you have to remove permanents that resolve is by ulting Liliana, which isn't going to happen until at least Turn 5. Finally, I feel like with Bogles being a thing in Modern this deck needs some way to deal with a Turn 0 Leyline of Sanctity, and I really don't see any way for you to do that in the current build.

Those cards are really conditional. The card must be in hand or in the graveyard. I prefer playing cards in which you call out the name of the card, that way you directly remove their deck engine.

If lets say someone plays a deck based around a winning condition, for example Door to Nothingness, I could just play Memoricide and the card just disappears.

I had considered Extirpate at the early phases of the deck, but its a bit expensive in money and it has the condition that the card needs to be in the graveyard... I don't really send anything there to begin with. I just exile them from hand, library and graveyard. I do however mostly enjoy its Split Second ability which closes the stack in tight corners.

Extirpate would be a good replacement in the sideboard over Cunning Lethemancer.

If you want to add a bit more variation in the spells category, you could throw in some hand mechanics like Duress or Inquisition of Kozilek. You could also add some robust card hate like Extirpate or Surgical Extraction. These are all cards that can show new players how to think ahead and develop strategy, as well as introduce them to commonly played cards that aren't too difficult to understand. Also, if you're worried about making cheap decks, if you're playing casual stuff, print proxies. Me and my friends print out proxy decks all the time to try out new mechanics and learn more about the game. Have fun!

PlatinumWare I like everything. I would change a couple of things about the sideboard. I don't think you need the Hurkyl's Recall and I would swap the Extirpate for another Surgical Extraction. I might say do 3 Damnation.

i think Surgical Extraction and Extirpate would help more than Darkness or Visions of Beyond. you're still getting cards out of the opponents deck, but more importantly you're hitting their win conditions. theres more than a few decks where a Surgical Extraction/Extirpate or 2 essentially forces them to scoop immediately. and even if you don't "completely" rob them of win conditions, you're bound to hit something that can let you slow the game enough to mill them at your leisure.
