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.

Extirpate Discussion

Been testing around with a few other options, at first I was trying to be more reactive and slow and play more instants, but now I'm looking at balancing a few more toolbox cards in like Doomfall , Thought Erasure , and Thoughtseize . I'm also thinking of picking up some Extirpate to bolster the targeted exiling, which will go well with Thought Erasure and Thoughtseize.

Additionally I'm trying to figure out a sideboard for this. Not sure yet how that'll go so any advice is helpful!

Since you are running Kaya, Rest in Peace might be a great mainboard option as a singleton as well as Surgical Extraction or Extirpate . I might also suggest cutting at least 2 Esper Charms and the 2 opt for 4 Serum Visions as it will allow you to dig through your deck more effectively. I hope this helps, +1

Love the Extirpate , I'm currently testing Shadow of Doubt probably for the same reason.

Icbrgr Thank you for the suggestions. I was trying 2x Extirpate recently, replacing 2x Ratchet Bomb in the sideboard. I almost everytime boarded it in. Good as this fits it could be played mainboard maybe? Getting rid of some key cards really felt powerful and I will probably get them in paper soon. Torpor Orb seams pretty good especially against humans and maybe other tribals. I was not playing a lot against it but i will have it in mind should the EBT rise up from anywhere. It's also quite affordable. Molten Rain will be tested soon. Surgical Extraction is unfortunately not within budget.

Nocturnus is bad in a three color deck. Vanquisher's Banner , Night's Whisper , and Mastermind's Acquisition all seem unnecessary. In lieu of those spells I would suggest Inquisition of Kozilek , Terminate , and another Stromkirk Captain . I also really like Bloodghast in this kind of build as he's hard to remove and benefits nicely from all your tribal synergies. Another card I might suggest would be Legion's Landing  Flip.

Your sideboard looks super janky. I'd suggest 4x Leyline of the Void 2x Stony Silence 2x Anguished Unmaking 2x Celestial Purge and then some combination of Fulminator Mage and or Crumble to Dust to deal with lands. Settle the Wreckage and Extirpate are fine but may not be needed with Leyline. Dreadbore is also a good sideboard option.

Thanks for the insight guys, I really do appreciate it.

That said, i'm not sure how much more wincons I'm looking to add. Between the Colonnades, Snaps, and Walkers I feel like I have a good amount. I'd probably add Creeping Tar Pit before any of the other suggestions.

If I main deck Surgical Extraction , should I be running Extirpate in the main as well?

I like Countersquall , and I'll work on fitting a second Spell Snare , but I had thought modern doesn't run three drop counterspells. Is it the life gain that makes Absorb worthwhile?

VexxValentine The problem of adding white in kill, is that your manabase will be more unstable. You can use Fatal Push instead of Path to Exile and Damnation instead of Supreme Verdict . Virdict and pact are a bit stronger, but they also require you to add one more color to your manabase, and this slows you a lot. echonig truth is not bad, but if you have problems with aggro the solution is Crypt Incursion and Ensnaring Bridge that can give you lot of time. If you have too mutch problems with aggro I suggest you to put main board 1/2 Bontu's Last Reckoning . If the problem is dredge or Phoenix add more Surgical Extraction and Extirpate

P.S. Esper mill is not as competitive as UB. If you watch list that made some results, on mtggoldfish or Mtgtop8 all mill lists are UB.UB is just faster, esper control the board better, but not enough in my opinion :)

Have a nice day, let me know if I am wrong :)

ToolmasterOfBrainerd on Sideboarding Against Tron

1 month ago

You're playing an aggressive deck so you're already in good shape to beat Tron. Early Tron can result in Wurmcoil Engine or Ugin, both of which are problematic for you. If they don't get a quick Tron they still can get to Oblivion Stone , which forces you to reset. Sorcerous Spyglass is a good option because it's good vs UW Control as well. You can name Teferi or Jace which makes it harder for them to stabilize. Then you can slow-roll your threats which makes Terminus less effective. Especially because you play some creatures with haste.

To be honest I expect burn to be a harder matchup for you than Tron.

I don't like that sideboard at all. Way too polarized. 3 Molten Rain and 3 Sorcerous Spyglass is more than enough Tron hate. In this meta I highly recommend graveyard hate. Rakdos Charm is graveyard and artifact hate (both very relevant). 4 Murderous Cut is way too many.

If you run into Dredge you'll need more than just a Rakdos charm to win. Anger of the Gods goes a long way - much further than Blasphemous Act . Very few decks should have enough creatures to make casting Blasphemous Act easy. Although Humans and Spirits and Phoenix can outclass Anger pretty easily too. Damnation might be the move.

You'll also probably run into problems with Rock decks. They have a lot of removal and card advantage.

Maybe start with this:

2-3 Damping Sphere - this also hates on Storm, which looks ugly for your deck. But if you're worried about taxing yourself then play Molten Rain or Fulminator Mage . Molten Rain and Fulminator are also really really good vs Control.

2-3 Sorcerous Spyglass

3-4 Sweeper of your choice

2 Collective Brutality - Awesome against Burn and control and combo decks and synergizes with your madness. If your burn matchup is good then don't bother with this.

3-4 Rakdos Charm or Extirpate or Nihil Spellbomb or Ravenous Trap or some other grave hate

0-3 Fatal Push or Dreadbore or Murderous Cut . I wouldn't play more than 1 Murderous Cut . But having spot removal for Thing in the Ice  Flip, Crackling Drake , Tarmogoyf , Scavenging Ooze , etc. is a good idea.
