Leyline of the Void


If Leyline of the Void is in your opening hand, you may begin the game with it in play.

If a card would be put into an opponent's graveyard, remove it from the game instead.

Leyline of the Void Discussion

I would also suggest you put leylines in your sideboard, probably first priority is Leyline of the Void , it just destroys graveyard decks completely, so I think you should probably play it in this...

Ok. So you said you want degenerate, so... here goes.

First off, Braids, Cabal Minion is banned. So you might want to remove it.

You should either be running the fetches, including the off-color ones like Flooded Strand , or run Suppression Field ; this also is a somewhat broader and more applicable answer to planeswalkers than The Elderspell , as it has non-planeswalker target. It puts a damper on the planeswalkers, but I feel like they might be better replaced with board wipes like Wrath of God , Day of Judgment , Damnation or Toxic Deluge . When I played this general, I don't think I ran any creatures; they tend to be easily removed, but their effects may be replaced by enchantments/artifacts (ex: Thorn of Amethyst replaces Thalia, Guardian of Thraben ). Additionally, because Athreos, God of Passage is indestructible, it survives most board wipes. I recommend Erebos, God of the Dead as a second useful god; and in an Oloro meta, it seems particularly applicable. Sphere of Safety and Lightmine Field can serve as further deterrents to attackers; Maze of Ith also fits in well. Serra's Sanctum also is a powerhouse, if combined with a high-enough enchantment count. If you take the creature-less rout, I advise Night of Souls' Betrayal to remove the ability of elf- or dork-based decks to function. You might also consider Cursed Totem .

I see you have Vampiric Tutor in the maybe board. It's massively superior to Diabolic Tutor , if only because of its much lower mana cost; Imperial Seal is a strictly worse version I run in my Kess list, but it is also very good. Bitterblossom is a great inclusion, especially if you're running something like Contamination to mess with everyone's mana.

Mana Crypt is invaluable in cEDH decks. Fragmentize is a good white equivalent to Nature's Claim , especially in metas with low curves. Leyline of the Void or Rest in Peace are good techs against graveyard decks like as Gitrog, with the added advantage of allowing a win with a Helm of Obedience activation.

I've never been impressed with 1-for-1s in EDH; by that token, Mortify and Doom Blade may be on the chopping block. Utter End is alright, simply because of its universality. I'd replace these with the above boardwipes, but I also suggest Pox or Smallpox . Pox has the additional advantage of severely lowering your opponents' life totals, so ad nauseum players tend to just cry, and your Painful Quandary becomes more oppressive. Stab Wound , which is another type of 1-for-1, might be better replaced with Palace Siege . Swords to Plowshares is the single 1-for-1 I highly recommend, because of its low cost, exile-based removal, and relatively small downside.

If you want to go full-blown, degenerate and expensive as a ****, I advise The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale and Chains of Mephistopheles .

Good luck! Stax em out.

@wallisface - Realistically, our primary win-con is Walking Ballista . The other win-cons work really well with the Ensnaring Bridge + Bottled Cloister combo, in that I'm drawing 2 cards per turn and it doesn't matter how many are in my hand at the end of turn. Two or three turns of holding cards and passing will let me swing with whatever creature I like. This is only really necessary when they ahve some way to turn off Walking Ballista that I can't deal with easily. However, Blast Zone really does give us a reliable answer to almost any non-token permanent.

Relic of Progenitus and Leyline of the Void exile cards from our graveyard. This gives Karn, the Great Creator access to them if they are artifacts, which most of them are. This gives me answers to artifact destruction.

I'm experimenting a bit with this deck and going full colorless. It makes going the prison route a lot easier and more consistent. I have been having quite a bit of luck with Serum Powder . It lets me get more consistent opening Tron hands. The cards that are exiled from it's activation are also available to Karn, the Great Creator as well.

That being said, the card's I'm least tied to are Semblance Anvil and Trinisphere .

To not lose to easy hate.

Unfair decks have answers that can shut the decks down. Using fast mana and artifact synergies to storm off with Jhoira? Damping Sphere , Null Rod , Karn, the Great Creator , Rule of Law , Stony Silence , Arcane Laboratory , and plenty of other cards single-handedly kill that strategy.

Think graveyard lists, then Tormod's Crypt , Relic of Progenitus , Leyline of the Void , Rest in Peace , Ground Seal , Silent Gravestone , etc.

Fair decks do less busted things, but have less cards that hate on them.

Nihil Spellbomb is the cheapest option, and it's very competitive.

Tormod's Crypt is also both cheap and good.

Other than that Surgical Extraction and Leyline of the Void are both good options. but very expensive.

Thinking of cutting Omniscience and Leyline of the Void for Ashiok, Dream Render and Fell Specter

Would also love to add in Archfiend of Ifnir , Anvil of Bogardan , and Psychic Possession but not sure what to cut if they are worth while.

Yep there’s definitely still pieces I’m working on obtaining. Thank you for those suggestions. ^_^ I actually played the deck for the first time today (I’ve been building it all week). I won in the first game and would have combo’d off on turn 3 if it wasn’t for a damn Leyline of the Void . Lol Instead it took me until T4 because I never topdecked any of my removal. Lol
