No Mercy Discussion

kamelyan on Xantcha wackiness and burn

I was going to suggest Bedlam , but I see that you already have that in the maybeboard. When you have the budget for it, No Mercy is a great card; or you can go for Dread .

I went a completely different way with Xantcha; I built a deck to get her back to my side. If you want to view a unique and random deck, please feel free:

Xantcha, Homecoming Queen

Bazzul on One card combo Demonlord Belzenlok

Thank you for the suggestions. I added a Stax section in the maybeboard for people who want to go for a more staxy version of the deck. The only cards I don't really agree with are No Mercy because it kills off Belzenlok, making it harder to Dread Return , and Nether Void because we lock ourselves out of the game specially because we are not running ramp cards like Sol Ring .

CyborgAeon on One card combo Demonlord Belzenlok

First off I want to say: I love the deck. Nice one, yo.

I feel like Dread is just asking to get cut. As a 6-mana card that stops you being milled to death it certainly doesn't do a lot. Surely you're better off running No Mercy or a wipe over this?

Some spice you could consider is: The Abyss / Nether Void both are the same mana and are exceptional at shutting off cedh decks. Smokestack effects aren't strong enough. But these make the game nigh unplayable.

Not the best suggestion. But an option could be Ob Nixilis, Unshackled as an option to slide under the radar. I also find Erebos, God of the Dead does well in Aetherflux Reservoir metas, as it's indestructible - so it nearly always needs to be bounced. Furthermore it draws cards... what more could you want?

Lastly I'm certain that you could run naus in here. The number of times you'd die to it would probably be reasonable, as it's just a second copy of belzenlok.

Maizena on Nekusar, the Friendship Destroyer [[PRIMER]]

Sorry it took me that long to answer you guys!!!

drcatherwood - You were right, Notion Thief is awesome! It's almost a instawin when you cast a "wheel".

ThaneGarrus - I'd rather to stick with the Firemind. I's easy to cast with the and it is a "combo" with Mind Over Matter .

derpytrollerZ - Curiosity triggers with any damage, not only combat. I can draw my whole deck when using it on Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind or just draw a bunch of cards with Nekusar and a "wheel". Helm of Obedience is a dead card if you don't have a Leyline of the Void on the field, but I really like this combo. And the Leyline is a must in my meta. hkhssweiss already explained the importance of the Library of Leng , it prevent the deck itself from decking out and selectively allows me to keep which cards I want in a wheel effect. It also gives me unlimited hand size.

hkhssweiss - I no longer run Kess, it was a nice suggestion, thank you! I'm thinking about swaping No Mercy for the new Bolas's Citadel .

Rambolicious_0 - I used to run them in the past, they're really not worth it.

SynergyBuild on Xantcha-"NO COLLUSION"

I know it isn't cheap, but to not get hit by the cards you give out, I think Dread , Koskun Falls , and if you want to spend the big money, No Mercy could be sweet in this deck!

Hustleberry on The Ceaseless Eldrazi Horde

Since I playtested your Deck and find it personally one of the most wicked EDH decks I have ever played, I came with some tweaks along which have proven themself very efficient in my version of your Deck Idea.

  1. Enter the Infinite together with Nexus of Fate gives you an eternal "your turn only" loop which is a very efficient way for make the stage free to all the Eldrazi in the queue.

  2. No Mercy is a pretty good Attack-stopper in early to near mid game, since in a true multiplayer match, in which the other players realize how dangerous you are, they will not attack you since they're too afraid of being naked for the attacks of the other players.

  3. Blue Sun's Zenith is despite the higher mana costs much more better than Mind Spring . So you have the choice to use it for yourself (and normally you don't do that in early game, just in mid or late or shortly: in situations where enough mana is ready to be used) or let an enemy draw himself to death.

  4. Platinum Emperion speaks for himself. Colorless, so why not using it? (For sure, it does not fit into the "Eldrazi" Flavor, but Ravnicas Supreme Verdict, or an old school Defense of the Hearth does not either. So why not making excuses and add the Emperion? The plus in effectiveness can not be denied.

  5. It That Betrays is such much better than Artisan of Kozilek , since it a) synergizes with it's own annihilator effect and has synergy potentials with "All is Dust" and b) has potential for future board wipes in "WAR" like "Single Combat" So why getting back just one creature from your grave, when there is the potential to get x>1 permanents from another player (every turn you attack) Needless to say, it's ability supports other annihilator effects of the Titans or the Pathrazer.

I hear you on all points, especially on the Syndicate Messenger ... it's shockingly bad. I'll try sub'ing it out for something else in-block for the moment [going for style points] but if that doesn't work it will likely become a Doomed Traveler or something else more efficient.

No Mercy is a great sub, here's to hoping I can find one at a decent price :)

You can run No Mercy instead of Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts . And Syndicate Messenger is inefficient and could be cut.
