Maelstrom Pulse Discussion

Emzed on B/W Demonic pact

2 weeks ago

Why run Banishing Light when it can't exile Demonic Pact, whereas Oblivion Ring can? Just to dodge Maelstrom Pulse and Detention Sphere?
You could add Gideon of the Trials, since his emblem allows you to safely use the "You lose the game" mode of Demonic Pact.
Those Leonin Relic-Warders seem like they will sometimes be a little underwhelming. If you draw more of them than you draw Pacts, or unless you face a deck with relevant permanents to exile, they are 2/2s with no effect. Maybe including a couple more artifacts and enchantments could help. Trial of Ambition is the best idea I could come up with for now. Not exactly a good card by itself, but between Relic Warder and Flickerwisp, it might have enough synergy to become playable here.

Finding a spot for Glint-Sleeve Siphoner is pretty tough. Off the bat, I would consider possibly reducing Maelstrom Pulse or Abrupt Decay to fit in two copies of the Siphoner.

If the card draw pans out, the card advantage could make up for the reduced redundancy. I love Maelstrom Pulse and Abrupt Decay, but I think it's worth a test. The menace on the Siphoner seems like it could make for a really intimidating and awkward board.

Mandalorian on Golgari Midrange

With Courser and Scooze around 3-5$ range, I'll try and keep my suggestions around that ballpark

Vraska the Unseen does an okay Maelstrom Pulse impersonation

Garruk Relentless  Flip

Dismember is a great kill spell that has the flexibility of being cast for 1 mana when you need to

Tasigur, the Golden Fang is a great source of card advantage and a great clock

Hero's Downfall is 1 more mana than Ultimate Price but has a much larger range of targets

You have a TON of mana sources here. Fast artifact mana, ramp via spells, creatures, and enchantments, but what are we ramping into? You seem to only have 1 fatty in the deck and 1 Torment of Hailfire mana sink, so I don't understand what all the fast mana is for? I think you could trim a lot of it, especially the rituals, for some more win conditions and/or interaction.

Maelstrom Pulse is still a destroy target permanent

Triskelion combos with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed for infinite damage

I'll add the Hexproof guys. Still need to drop some stuff...

I'd remove Triskelion, Wood Elves because Nissa's got it covered, Maelstrom Pulse is not as great in commander, unfortunately.Also, i'm considering Killing Wave over Black Sun's Zenith.

Hex Parasite is good to keep your creatures undying/persisting. Grim Flayerfor mulching. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Archetype of Endurance in the triskelion spot. Lightning Greaves or other creature protection is going to be necessary to keep 'Meren the gains.

Maelstrom Pulse, Treasured Find, Tormod's Crypt, Pithing Needle, Damnation, Naturalize, Putrefy, Golgari Charm, Dismember, and Noxious Revival are all great sideboard cards for Golgari decks. I would stay away from Grafdigger's Cage because it prevents Glissa from pulling artifacts back from the graveyard. Tormod's Crypt can erase an opponents graveyard and still give you access to yours. Also, a few Ghost Quarter is probably needed to stop Tron decks.
