Lay Bare the Heart Discussion

MonochromeDisco on B/W Artifacts

Siding against control would probably be something like this:

-3 Hope of Ghirapur/Watchers of the Dead depending on whether they use their grave more or just spell sling.

+3 Kambal, Consul of Allocation

-4 Essence Extraction

+4 Lay Bare the Heart

If they have a specific combo that doesn't rely on an artifact:

-2 Hidden Stockpile

+2 Lost Legacy

I'm thinking that the deck might want to side Dispossess to handle tower of power to strip Dynavolt Tower or Torrential Gearhulk. Would probably go down to 2 Fragmentize and remove that slot filling Watchers of the Dead for them. You'd be at a bit more of a risk vs vehicles, but you could just as easily side in the Dusks and blow up their Heart of Kiran

Hello again Bolas-kin! i had a lot of work to do lately, but i been keeping up the new cards, and we have some sweet stuff out there, beggining with Supreme Will, the new counter you were talking about TheBooman. But today they spoiled a card which i think fits perfectly in the gameplan; torment-of-hailfire, definetly going to put them in.

The last week i went to a FNM to test the deck, and well... i lost (and i must accept that one match was my fault), but i saw this:It lacks of control, need more counters (although i don't like the idea, it's the way it have to be)The mana still need some arrengement, at times i felt i was losing mostly for the "double costs"Dark Intimations have to go away, it's hard to accept it, but in the metagame is a card that becomes irrelevant, not to mention it slow down our gameplayChandra, Torch of Defiance excelent option IMHO, it worked so fine against both, creatures and playersHarsh Mentor awesome card, worked so nice

Im gonna change the structure of the deck this weekend, the cards i'm gonna cut off are: Dark Intimations, As Foretold (i like that card a lot, but we have a bunch of cards with "X" cost already, so, sometimes it become useless), 1 To the Slaughter, Transgress the Mind, Glorybringer

And the things i'm gonna add: torment-of-hailfire, Lay Bare the Heart, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Bontu's Last Reckoning and a counter (or two, XD). Also work with the mana, just to see what would fix it

I await your call fellas and thanks for all the work you've done!

Why not replace the Harsh Scrutiny with Lay Bare the Heart

Thanks for the suggestion Argy! For some reason I thought that Lay Bare the Heart couldn't hit planeswalkers. I always forget that they are not technically legendary.

I have switched to Lay Bare the Heart in my Sideboard, instead of Transgress the Mind, in the wake of the latest ban.

Transgress was essential against Marvel decks, but Lay Bare the Heart hits a lot more stuff.

You'll need to keep an eye on your local meta in order to adjust the Sideboard any further.

Find out what shuts this deck down, and put in cards to deal with that.

looks like you splashed black to only play Lay Bare the Heart? Unless you have some black creatures you want to play, I don't think it is worth having 3 colors in this deck. This is especially true for Bontu's Monument. I would consider eliminating black.

It seems like this deck to be about getting double value of your creatures by embalming them after playing Anointed Procession.

Anointer Priest, Oketra's Attendant, Aven Wind Guide seem like creatures you might want to consider.

Keep in mind that this strategy kind of relies on your creatures dying so you might not want to invest in them with the cartouches.

Hopefully this helps. Good Luck Deck Building!

Lost Legacy and Lay Bare the Heart are always good sideboard options
