Glaring Spotlight Discussion

greyninja on BUG Infect EDH -- Need ...

Triumph of the Hordes is a good game ender, especially if your commander is huge

I noticed you didn't include any boardwipes. I would def start with Cyclonic Rift, Toxic Deluge, etc

Ppl will definitely be trying to remove your infect creatures. Maybe some Counterspell and the like? Also Whispersilk Cloak and Glaring Spotlight might be a good way to push damage through

Thank you for the feedback :)


  • I don't think this is a Helix Pinnacle deck, and I have a very hard time defending the card for just one round, and I it is also very unlikely that I will be able to produce 100 mana in one turn.


  • Hardened Scales I don't think this is value enough for EDH. It only affects 17 cards and its a fairly weak combo with doublers.
  • I took Crucible of Worlds out of the deck, and I don't think I'll bring it back in. If I do, I'll probably run your combo.
  • I don't like Glaring Spotlight and would always rune Arcane Lighthouse over it. Also I don't have much that targets, so I'm not sure why I should add it?

Added to mabybeboard

I have added Abundance to the maybeboard, as it is pretty good alone and insanely powerfull when paired with Sylvan Library: Draw 3 (filtered) cards without paying the life. I could use that.

Hey man, how about Hardened Scales? supercheap AND effective!

Llanowar Reborn + Ghost Quarter + Crucible of Worlds is (imo) a nice combination for some extra +1/+1 counters.

Glaring Spotlight takes care of those nasty hexproofs and can make one attack fatal.

Nice deck, +1 from me!

Could also use something like Glaring Spotlight for a nice massive attack without fear of blocking, and of course there's always getting another another attack phase with Aggravated Assault and increasing your damage output with Gratuitous Violence.

Just got to what I think will be the final mainboard (excluding the land base I plan on making it a lot more "modern"). That being said the sideboard is kinda trash. Greater Auramancy protects the enchantments but nothing does for the artifacts, Grafdigger's Cage is for the graveyard shenanigans and Glaring Spotlight is if them having hexproof is a problem, and Telemin Performance is for the Nahiri/Emrakul deck but the rest is useless, If anyone has ideas for how to protect my artifacts and what the other part of the sideboard should be please let me know! Thanks :)

dreamweaver6515 yeah Glaring Spotlight could definitely work for Phage. Thanks!

For making Phage/assassins unblockable, you might try Glaring Spotlight. Alternatively, you could try any card that gives them trample (though it won't work on the 1/1's, unless you can beef them up).

Straight up Voltron, no Bat-family? Interesting choice. I'd try to get some sort of Alfred in there though, maybe Solemn Simulacrum

Grave Pact is also nice, since Batman did make one to his parents.

Geier Reach Sanitarium is obviously Arkham Asylum.

And what Batman would be complete without Glaring Spotlight?
