Merciless Eviction Discussion
5 days ago
I should have my final list up in a few days. I need to wait to see how many cards from the pre-con I am running. Currently I'm testing an infinite mana combo with Kiora's Follower, Voyaging Satyr and Freed from the Real with lands that have Fertile Ground type enchantments attached to them. I may even cut Omniscience because of its awkward casting cost and I don't have a Rector of my own.
And you're absolutely right that you need some protection against Merciless Eviction. I may run a Mana Drain or Counterspell to protect versus sweepers, but there isn't enough slots for a dedicated counter suite. I don't want to drop my enchantment level too low as currently I think I'm running like 40+ enchantments since the enchantresses are my primary way to draw in the deck.
Also I highly recommend Clever Impersonator.

Ayoooo, kind of drunk, bud.
Alright, so a couple things jump out; foremost, Cloudcrest Lake is really, really bad. I would replace it with Arcane Sanctum. Actually, with such a low curve, you could even drop down to 37 lands, dropping a basic land.
With the freed up slot, I would suggest running another wrath, or piece of spot removal. The following are staples: Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Path to Exile, and Day of Judgment or Merciless Eviction. Cleansing Nova is a sweet, new card as well. However, for your theme, Seal of Doom may be more fitting.
Additionally, you could run Phyresis if you're feeling degenerate.
Concerning the mana base, you could run fewer Islands for more Plains. Of course, the deck would really appreciate more premium dual lands, but I understand they're expensive and not particularly exciting purchases.
Other than those points, the deck has a solid strategy, and should be frustrating to play against. Good job.

I know it might be difficult to find space, but Enchanted Evening is a wonderful deterrent against Merciless Eviction / Austere Command. You’d have a larger Tuvasa as well as even better protection since no one wants to wipe their own board state.

I think that you might be in need of some more removal, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Beast Within, Anguished Unmaking would be a good start. I only see 2 board wipes also, 4 if you really want to count what's immediately offered by some of your walkers. I would add like 2 of these: Supreme Verdict, Toxic Deluge, Wrath of God, Damnation, Urza's Ruinous Blast, Merciless Eviction, or Austere Command.

Thank you for your reply. Your reasoning seems good aye, I might include Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer for testing. Our meta isn't counter heavy, but it is quite wipe/exile heavy, targeted and stuff like Merciless Eviction are auto-include if the colours allow it.
I've tested Scroll Rack and it has helped me in a pinch, it shined when I was behind. I might include it.
Regarding deck tech, I've been having difficulties when to use Oracle's Vault or do you only use/abuse it with untaps/proliferation. Most of the time it feels bad when I draw it, and if I invest mana into making brick counters it usually gets taken care of. But I can see it being very strong using Paradox Engine. Perhaps it is still in the testing phase, or did it prove itself for you?

How does Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts perform for you? You have a few No Mercy effects built into the deck with Teysa being the most expensive. She is essentially unblockable which would be good for gaining monarch back but I feel like something like Sun Titan would strengthen the deck a lot (Aside from the anti-synergy with Rest in Peace and Merciless Eviction. I'm curious to hear your thoughts.
If I could recommend adding one card I would suggest Mirage Mirror. Its one of those cards that perhaps you have to play with a few times to really appreciate but I know for certain its one card that will never be taken out of my list.
