Merciless Eviction Discussion

acht_deck_manager on What life?

1 day ago

Just some thoughts in case they help build off of what Immortalized said or provide any other useful things to look at:

Draw

There are a lot of other draw cards too that you might consider:

And countless more. In a deck like this though there's a lot of value to be had in something like Phyrexian Arena since 1 life per upkeep is no biggie with Oloro around

Removal

Here's some other good removal to think about:

Slow Down Taxes

Here are some cards that can really halt your opponent's aggression:

Taxing Creatures

Some other creatures worth mentioning that tax an opponent's life:

Other Notables

Here's some other cards that are worth noting:

  • Pristine Talisman combos well if you have Oloro out (Tap to gain life, spend the mana to draw the card and cost each opponent 1 life)
  • Baleful Strix can be great utility in this kind of deck
  • Reliquary Tower Is always great in draw decks

Additional Thoughts

One card I'd definitely recommend ditching is Azor's Elocutors.

Other cards I see that I'd consider removing if it was me:

I used to play an Oloro deck as well (albeit it with a very different affinity ) using a ton more artifacts and some fun combinations around Darksteel Forge and Nevinyrral's Disk . He's a great commander and a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy the deck and can find something useful in any of my suggestions.

Good luck and happy hunting!

I have a few suggestions:

Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood pretty much self explanatory as to why.

Well of Lost Dreams, Rhystic Study and Alhammarret's Archive are pretty synergistic draw engines.

You are playing one of the best color combination for boardwipes. If things go wrong a well placed Supreme Verdict, Wrath of God, Merciless Eviction, Fumigate, Terminus or Cyclonic Rift can turn the table in your favor or win you the game. Boardwipes are very strong in the EDH format.

35 lands without any mana rocks is quite slow for a deck like this. Maybe you could consider adding some ramp to ensure that your strategy starts pumping before your opponent's. I'm talking about cards like Azorius Signet, Dimir Signet, Orzhov Signet, Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Basalt Monolith etc etc.

I feel like Colossus of Akros, Eater of Hope, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, Maze Sentinel and Mortus Strider are either not very synergistic or weak compared to many other possible choices.

Rhox Faithmender, Archangel of Thune (quite pricy $),Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Sphinx of the Steel Wind could be interesting cards.

As for your removal you heavily rely on Pacifism effects. If that's what you absolutely want, go ahead, but if you'd like a bit versatility (sometimes an enchantment or something else might prevent you from gaining life of playing at all), cards like Anguished Unmaking, Counterspell, Mortify, Return to Dust and Utter End could be pretty interesting.

Might have a few cards that comes to mind. I hope any of those cards were inspirational to you :P

Decree of Annihilation, Final Judgement, Living Death, Merciless Eviction, cards that force you to sacrifice, and any number of -X/-X spells, or even counter spells are examples of fatal weaknesses for this deck, to be fair they are for most decks but especially this. I would suggest that you add Aegis of the Gods to the deck for closer to invincibility, as well as Progenitus for a truly invincible creature.

NewHorizons: Honestly, the best way to fight mass artifact removal in this deck is simply to out-race it. This deck can potentially drop the hammer on someone faster than they can go for their Bane of Progress/Vandalblast/Merciless Eviction or whatever.

That said, if I can't do that, it tends to hurt a hell of a lot. I do have Null Brooch and Kozilek, the Great Distortion to maybe catch something, and Warping Wail always makes for a fun response, but those can't help me every time. It's definitely a notable weakness, but honestly I don't find that it's as much of a glaring problem as it looks.

And Mirrorworks is here for the purpose of making more Doubling Cubes, Blinkmoth Urns, or whatever happens to be in my hand that I'd like two of. It definitely helps my game plan out when I find myself stalled out at 6 mana and I manage to dig up a mana rock, but I'll admit it does tend to become more of a win-more card if I'm already doing fine. I like win-more though, so it's still here.

Daedalus19876 on Dark Phoenix, Who Frowns At Fun

Okay, let's do this! cracks knuckles I love the snarky tone of the description, btw :)

The stax elements of this deck seem strong, mostly. You're missing Winter Orb though. I would normally suggest Crackdown and Meekstone and Moat, but they interfere with Alesha :( Perhaps Smoke or Mudslide? I don't personally like Chalice of the Void in EDH, though, there's just too much variance in the mana cost of powerful cards. And since you're reanimating things anyway, might as well play Big Daddy Smokestack!

However, the land base seems...a little off. 29 mana-producing lands is REALLY really low, doubly so since you will have to pay some of your own "taxes". I know that the Karoo lands help a bit, but I still wouldn't trust this mana base without SIGNIFICANT testing. You might also find the Filterlands useful to mana fix (Rugged Prairie, Fetid Heath, Graven Cairns). I also never leave home without Reflecting Pool, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, etc. Basically, look at Lilbrudder's Leovold mana base and color-shift it XD

I'd frequently choose to run Rest in Peace over (or in addition to) Leyline of the Void. Always good to run another combo piece!

Phyrexian Arena over Underworld Connections, 1000%. The former doesn't lock down a land, which is even more important in this deck.

I'm actually not really a fan of Nahiri, the Harbinger in EDH. Is she just there for utility, or are you planning to use her ult? If the former is true, there are better ways to get card filtering. If the latter is true, what's your finisher?

That being said, planeswalkers can generally be really good in stax decks. You might get away with including some other walkers that play more into your gameplan, possibly Sorin Markov to reset lifetotals? :)

Night's Whisper over Wild Guess: less color commitment, more card advantage.

No Necropotence? :( I guess maybe the card is too much color commitment in tri-color.

If you're going to run Mox Opal with only 18 artifacts, I'd try and include the three on-color artifact lands as well.

False Prophet seems odd here, since you have the ability to reanimate creatures with relative ease.

Personally, I'd substitute Austere Command over Merciless Eviction, though it does depend on how you plan to use the board wipe.

Land Tax does wonders to fix your mana, and recover after an Armageddon...

If you have oodles of money, Imperial Recruiter pairs well with Recruiter of the Guard.

Yes or no on Mox Diamond? Your land count is already low, but it's so good...

Swords to Plowshares over Path to Exile: you don't want to give your opponents land ramp in a stax deck, lol.

I hope that helps a bit! :) I'll leave more comments if I think of them, and happy deckbuilding!

Also @lindleya1, Platinum Angel is how.

Now imagine I play the angel, then play Abyssal Persecutor, and wait until everyone else would've, under normal conditions, lost the game. What happens if I then play Merciless Eviction?!! XD (evil laugh)

And another thing: Mycosynth Lattice + Merciless Eviction = "Annihilation, Jim. Total, complete, and utter annihilation." - Star Trek (I'm almost certain Spock says it, but I could be wrong.)

I had Uril for a bit so I'm familiar with the theme. Here are some suggestions:

Card Draw: Kor Spiritdancer, Enchantress's Presence

Ramp: Sol Ring, Nature's Lore, Trace of Abundance, Lotus Cobra, Herald of the Pantheon, Courser of Kruphix, Birds of Paradise

Tutoring: Academy Rector, Idyllic Tutor, Open the Armory, Recruiter of the Guard, Sterling Grove

Protection: Mother of Runes, Flickerform, Shield of the Oversoul, Sigarda, Host of Herons

Increase your threat: Ancestral Mask, Armadillo Cloak, Angelic Destiny, Daybreak Coronet, Doubling Season

Removal: Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Krosan Grip, Song of the Dryads, Toxic Deluge

Hate: Rest in Peace

One of the biggest issues that I found was dodging something like Merciless Eviction. Flickerform is really the only thing that does it. One other option is having Greater Good so at least you will benefit before your stuff dies.

The dream: Serra's Sanctum and Gaea's Cradle, both of which would be nuts in this deck.

A strange card that I found to do good in Uril was Mark of Fury. It gives you the haste you want and lets you replay it each turn to net a card if you have something like Argothian Enchantress in play.
