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

Blessed Alliance and Geth's Verdict are both excellent against infect as it gets around hexproof. Geth's Verdict is probably a consideration vs eldrazi tron as well. I would also side Surgical Extraction or Extirpate, as it would help you shut down tron after you Ghost Quarter on of their lands. You said you have less issue with abzan but those two cards could also help you shut down their combo pieces after you remove one.

i like the idea of mainboard Extirpates with deathtouch creatures and discard

You're going to be going up against a lot of artifacts, that I know for sure. Rest in Peace will probably also come up at some point, so you'll want something to contend with that. Disenchant and Extirpate/Surgical Extraction will get rid of any of those threats. People are fond of using Stony Silence to stop artifacts. Those three/four cards would make a nice start to your sideboard. The rest is basically up to whatever you'll find that you're going up against on a regular basis.

JararoNatsu on shadow spirits hand disrupt

You have a really steep mana curve going on here, and I worry that you'll have openings hands flooded with CMC 5+ cards and you won't be able to act.

Replace Cranial Extraction with Surgical Extraction or Extirpate. The extra 3 mana isn't needed to get the job done.

Abyssal Nocturnus, Farbog Revenant, and Highborn Ghoul are all examples of low-CMC creatures that are quite good. Consider dropping some of your CMC 5+ creatures for them.

Other cards to consider are Ordeal of Erebos, Hymn to Tourach, and maybe even Waste Not.

Whoops you're absolutely right. Maybe consider a few Extirpate or Surgical Extraction.

JararoNatsu on U/B Control (Creatureless)

Both of the above commenters are right. If you're not going to have a creature base, then you need to do everything in your power to prevent the opponent from having one as well. To that end, you have little means of doing so, and what you do have has way too high of a cost mana-wise. I would highly recommend that you have lower mana cost cards like Fatal Push, Mana Leak, Extirpate, and Inquisition of Kozilek. Removal, counterspells, and hand attack are three things that you definitely need for a successful B/U control deck, and you have very little of all three. Since you're solely relying on control to win the game, you will also need card draw to pull the cards you want. Serum Visions is the card that people tend to go for, but there are many other options (the same can be said for everything that I have mentioned here).

I notice that you have artifacts dedicated to limiting how much damage is done to you in combat. I ask you, why be damaged at all? Propaganda would help with that immensely. You also have two artifacts that boosts creatures... which you don't have. A better artifact would be something like Isochron Scepter, which you could use to continuously play removal or counter spells.

Finally, I notice that you don't really have a win condition. Skywise Teachings really isn't going to work out too much, especially if you don't have low-CMC cards to allow the cost to make the tokens. Unfortunately, since you're not using creatures you are limited on options. Here are some to consider:

  1. Discard, using cards like Liliana's Caress to deal direct life loss to the opponent.
  2. Mill (which I despise but it works).
  3. Lots of artifacts, ending with Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas's Ultimate.

Stuff like that. It's really up to you.

Hope this helps!

You're kidding, right?

There are so many ways to get your Opponent to shuffle their deck whenever you want.

I'll list some.

My play group is brutal and packs just about all of these cards.

There's no way they are just gonna let you fetch out part of your winning combo with Vampiric Tutor or Enlightened Tutor.

If your play group lets you get away with it, consider yourself lucky.

Darth_Savage on what a nice deck you have...Anand it's gone

A go to for exiling graveyards is Tormod's Crypt, it's difficult to argue with free. Alternatively Relic of Progenitus is a popular option. Extirpate can remove a particular threat from multiple locations and can't be interacted with.

Other suggestions; Altar of the Brood, Mistvein Borderpost and Drowner Initiate could all be worth a look.
