Merciless Eviction Discussion

Hou er rekening mee dat Merciless Eviction en vooral Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares en Return to Dust niets doen met het deck zelf. Ik zou eerder gaan voor Vona's Hunger , Tragic Arrogance en Living Death als er creatures zijn waar je niet vanaf komt. de laatste twee functioneren ook nog eens als een enabler voor Teysa.

Dread Return is misschien ook een leuke, sacrifice outlet EN graveyard recursion.

En dan heb je ook nog kaarten die superieur zijn aan Death Denied . Entreat the Dead is Heel erg sterk, maar ook Rally the Ancestors en Wake the Dead doen het prima in dit deck als je je sacrifice outlets maar beschikbaar hebt...

En misschien ben ik het gewoon, maar ik mis Solemn Simulacrum ook gewoon een beetje...

Oeh, Oeh en Twilight Drover !!

En Harvester of Souls !!!

Och je snapt het wel.... :D

falc0n1234 on Alesha Smiles at Death On A BUDGET

Looks pretty good! In my experience, I find that Merciless Eviction clashes with the deck too much for my liking. I find that Fumigate , Day of Judgment , Tragic Arrogance , or Cleansing Nova are cards you don't mind playing when you have your own creatures on the board, unlike Merciless Eviction . These cards are also, pretty cheap, especially Tragic Arrogance (really underrated card IMO), so they don't break the budget.

Reveillark is another great budget creature for the deck thanks to its reprint in Ultimate Masters. This combined with Karmic Guide makes a very good infinite damage/death trigger combo.

Fiend Hunter is a must-have in this deck. Exiling a creature every turn with Alesha? Sign me up! To really abuse this card, have a sacrifice outlet, like Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Spawning Pit .

  1. Play Fiend Hunter
  2. Target a creature with his ETB
  3. In response to his ETB trigger, sacrifice him
  4. His death trigger resolves first, which doesn't do anything because the ETB trigger hasn't resolved yet
  5. Let his ETB trigger resolve, which exiles an opponent's creature permanently!

This can prove very powerful against large creatures.

@Jaypay1994 That would be great! Until someone Vandalblast or Bane of Progress or Merciless Eviction . I had some fun using Bludgeon Brawl and Armory Automaton , but untimately I've removed Bludgeon Brawl because this deck is very tight in the slots and I try not to add cards for a single interaction. Thanks for the idea, tho!

Cloudius on Indestructible vs Blink

enpc Very valid points. I'd need more play testing to see if the 2 blink cards works out well or is truly a knee jerk reaction.

Recasting is of course an option but as with all "Go Wide" strategies, it'll take a while before we re-establish the same board state, more often than not, the game's already over then. On the contrary, protecting the entire or part of my board from devastating board wipes would put me in a very advantageous position.

That said, Cyclonic Rift is an example I quoted in the write up but there're other cards that blink offers protection against while indestructible doesn't (e.g. exile effects like Merciless Eviction , Settle the Wreckage , Swords to Plowshares , etc). This was what got me thinking of trying out "Blink" so my protection package is more "holistic".

Yo welcome Kangaroodoo!

So by answering your question, yes. You are missing a couple great staples in the deck that would make the deck more fluid. Having a lot of enchantments is good, but sometimes you need to have answers to deal with threats as well.

Here are a couple cards that can be considered adding, I won't list cards that are $5 USD and over as since you want to keep it budget.

In addition here are cards you can consider with going on theme:

Hope that helps!

I thank you for your comment.

I'll definitely replace Thunderstaff for Koskun Falls . More taxing effects seem to work wonders in this deck.

As for Comeuppance , what a great card in here! I'll likely replace Virtus the Veiled with that. I don't see me ever really connecting to a player with him to make it worthwhile unless I have Break Through the Line on the field.

I think I'll drop either Felidar Cub or Kami of Ancient Law for Crush Contraband .

As for having a board wipe, I've honestly been thinking of replacing Magus of the Disk with Merciless Eviction . But since it hits everything I'm worried it would put me so far behind on the board. What board wipes would you recommend for this style of play?

Hey Zerraphon, nice you liking the idea! Well you want the protection pieces i got in there. I am playing in a meta where removal is not the focus of a lot of decks but there are some nasty things that from time to time fly around. It helps a lot having Avacyn, Angel of Hope and her little sister Deathless Angel around. Same goes for Teferi's Protection which you can also replace, if it is not in your budget, think Boros Charm is a nice addition. The black pieces i got in this deck are mostly supportive and you don't really need black. Most of your draw can be done from blue anyways and recursion is decent in white. Make sure you got Bruna, the Fading Light in there, i replaced her with Phyrexian Reclamation cause it is just cheaper. The only thing you lose from not having black is some decent removal in form of [Utter End] and potentially Merciless Eviction (did put that into my licia deck thats why it is not in this deck). The other way you profit from red. I think you should really put stuff in that gives Haste ( Fires of Yavimaya Dragon Tempest ) and so on. Doublestrike should also be a higher priority if you have red. Think if you build around KT you need to try out how the ramp and draw from the commander plays out. This deck is build around ramping early, thats why there are 13 pieces, but also tuned to not heavily have to rely on your ramp spells. If you get to 4-5 Lands you are mostly good to go and the deck functions. It is a slower mid range control deck and red should probably accelerate this a little bit, cause you can give your creatures haste. I think thats why you probably dont need that much protection spells, cause you can prepare your turns in your hand because of haste. This deck has to protect the board state over several turns, cause of the +1/+1 counter theme that is the shell for the Angel Tribal. I just suggest you to find a shell for your ladies and awesome Angels and go from there. Doublestrike beatdown would be one thing to consider. After that, play test a lot. It takes a lot of time to refine how many cards you need for your strategy and how many you can devote to other stuff. Would also suggest to think about a second win condition that doesn't resolve around combat damage. I took in the Debt to the Deathless that allows me to close out games that otherwise are unwinable. I think you got a lot of stuff in red like Chandra's Ignition and so on. Have fun building! If you have any questions towards which Angels to include (cause i know it is hard to cut them) just ask!
