Merciless Eviction Discussion

You have access to the best wraths in the format, so I would try to use them. Wrath of God and Damnation may be 4-cmc, but Austere Command and Merciless Eviction are great for their ability to selectively target what you need to kill at the moment. You've got quite a bit of mana, so you should be able to afford the extra 2 most of the time. I'm not sure how well your mana base will support it, but Lazav, Dimir Mastermind seems great to go along with your small clone package. Killing off your opponent's best creature and copying it with Lazav seems like a sweet play.

So, the thing about white is that it wants to be on top. It has a self-righteous mentality so deeply driven into itself that it feels it has the inherent right to literally everything. It wants political power, economic power, religious power, moral power. It wants to amass an army of servants who carry out it's every whim without question nor hesitation. White, at the end of the day, really wants to stand alone at the top - be it a rich and prosperous city or a pile of ashes. It doesn't care, so long as it and it alone is the king of the hill.

Black, meanwhile, just wants to get done what it wants done. Want to kill this creature? Kill it. Want to learn more stuff? Learn it. Want to raise the dead? Raise it. Black is egotistical. It feels it DESERVES the right to do as it wants, and nobody should be able to tell it no. If black has to literally kill itself to get what it wants, it will. Pose black with a simple question: "You can gain this much measurable amount of power, but it's going to cost you twice as much. Do you accept?" and black won't just tell you yes, it'll have already been doing it before you finished.

The reason black and white are enemy colors is because white wants it all, black just wants enough. White is going to strip everything away from you, black will join you. White wants the world to burn so it's left alone. Black couldn't care less if the world burns, so long as it achieved what it wanted.

Combined into Orzhov, black tends to dominate white. This is because it's easier to influence white than it is for black to surrender. This is why 99% of the Orzhov decks you see is black dominated.

What's an Orzhov card that's white dominated? Merciless Eviction.

Now that you understand the dynamic power struggle between white and black, let's begin.

Tenimae, Cruel Judge

Legendary Planeswalker - Tenimae

+2 Target opponent reveals their hand. Choose a nonland, noncreature card from it. They exile that card.

-4 Destroy all nonland permanents with converted mana cost 3 or less. They can't be regenerated.

-9 Each opponent adds up the total converted mana cost of all permanents he or she controls. If that value is less than their life total, their life total becomes that value instead. Your may have your life total become equal to the total converted mana cost of all permanents in control.


Designed so you start at 4, hit 6, 8, 10, and he survives with a loyalty of 1 so you get his 5 CMC added on. Otherwise, kill him off and devastate the board in any format you play. Short term or long term, you wreak absolute havoc across the game. White done right in Orzhov.

This was surprisingly fun :) Not that I'm asking us to do a cycle, but I'd like to see another color pair that uses the lesser dominate one.

For example, Gruul tends to swing back and fourth a bit but if you pay close attention to all of the Gruul Planeswalkers, green dominates over red. Creatures get big, you get mana, you look through your library. All of these are green qualities.

Make a Gruul Planeswalker who focuses more on red, instead :D

Really interesting deck/concept, love it +1, I have to ask why the Myrs tho? I also agree on the Merciless Eviction addition if you find yourself needing more board wipes.

Interesting build here... Isochron Scepter... God I always want to make it work but I dunno...

Anwyays my only suggestions are Bloodghast, Merciless Eviction, and Anguished Unmaking. Bloodghast is just a staple here. Eviction deals with indestructible and specific permanent types, PERMANENTLY. Anguished Unmaking, besides the flavor, is just a great card to deal with problematic anything because I see no walker removal here.

If you are only going to run one, I suggest Leyline of Anticipation over Orrery anyday as you have a change to play it for free. I still like both of them in the deck but yea...

Captain Sisay and Bloom Tender is pretty much mandatory in this deck.

Norn's Annex is a meh card honestly, if you play against white it's just one white mana, and if it's against a non white deck if they just swing big who cares about the 2 life.

Do you have a way to cheat out Omniscience? Otherwise I would consider cutting it, people really don't like playing against that card.

In Garruk's Wake is REALLY expensive, maybe try Urza's Ruinous Blast instead? keeps all your walkers alive and wipes most of the table of all frustrations. Speaking of board wipes why is there no Merciless Eviction in the deck? It deals with untargetable and indestructible quite well. Also if your meta is counter magic heavy you can play Supreme Verdict.

Speaking of counters... you should try running Render Silent, it's my favorite counter in the game.

For recursion I highly suggest Creeping Renaissance and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth as alternatives instead of just shuffling your grave away.

Djeru, With Eyes Open, Thran Temporal Gateway, and Deepglow Skate are also really big bombs worth putting in the deck. I almost say they are nessecary but... you COULD do without them.

I would also consider cutting the praetor's except Vorinclex, they are honestly just win more cards or a convient way to lay your private bits on the table and make everyone marvel.

Granted mine is a bit different but if you want to take a look at another SF deck here's mine!
