Ink-Fusion on Son of the Devil, Dracula

32 lands seems pretty low, also Obliterate seems like an odd choice

jon_hill987 on Jhoira, Big Creatures

2 weeks ago

Most Jhoira decks tend to run land destruction/board wipes. Suspend Obliterate before a couple big creatures and everyone is back to zero except you get to cast It That Betrays (Best Eldrazi IMO) for free.

Spells like Curse of the Swine don't work with suspend, so you might want to cut that in place of a more traditional board wipe. Jokulhaups, Apocalypse, Decree of Annihilation and the aforementioned Obliterate. Ideally several.

I'd also recommend Riptide Laboratory to protect Jhoira, she may have a low CMC but you really don't want to be paying the commander tax too much and she will be a target.

I run a similar list including anya in the 99 but with tajic at the helm.

Due to her indestructible nature and access to stuff like Boros Charm Frontline Medic Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Iroas, God of Victory, i would recommend running powerful spells that indestructible creatures like anya, see my list for reference, but a ton of spells exist that anya survives but everything else wont

Martial Coup

Anger of the Gods

Hour of Revelation

Jokulhaups

Devastation

Kirtar's Wrath

Obliterate

Akroma's Vengeance

Blasphemous Act

Wrath of God

Razia's Purification

Cataclysm

Worldslayer

Armageddon

Also, your lack of tutors is disturbing :/

Stonehewer Giant

Godo, Bandit Warlord

Gamble

Enlightened Tutor

Idyllic Tutor

Open the Armory

As far as artifact theme, you're missing a few key cards

Darksteel Forge

Without this, a single Vandalblast neuters your game plan

Sunforger

not just flavor, this card allows you to run a "toolbox" of 1-4 cmc instants, some i run in tajic are

Comeuppance

Oblation

Chaos Warp

Master Warcraft

Deflecting Palm

Swords to Plowshares

Nim Deathmantle***

Creatures constantly being destroyed? Fear not. Leave 4 mana open and anya and friends will NEVER die, it also abuses etb effects like Godo, Bandit Warlord

Epidilius on Should I use Tariel, Reckoner ...

2 weeks ago

I'm building a deck based around board wipes, and I noticed if I cut all the red it would bring me to 100 cards.

The only red wipes I currently have in my list are artifact wipes and stuff like Obliterate.

Should I just cut red and switch commanders?

Edit:

5C Board Wipes

RazortoothMtg on A Truly EPIC Experiement

I would add some more big wraths like Obliterate, Jokulhaups, Armageddon, Ravages of War, etc, so that everyone is on nothing when you have the epic spells.

Lol well fair enough, I generally use Spreading Plague when I have Zurgo indestructible on others turns via Shielded by Faith, Darksteel Plate, Avacyn, Angel of Hope etc. But Tainted AEther fills a similar role without the backfire.

The reason I like Obliterate, Jokulhaups and Cataclysm is because Devastation doesn't take out the opponents mana rocks either so they could potentially comeback. I also use a fair amount of plainswalkers like Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Ajani, Caller of the Pride to seal the deal after a wrath which is a option. Anyways, best of luck!

dlamars Spreading Plague is really cool..... Until it's my opponents turn and they kill my Commander with it.Obliterate is a great board wipe for game ender but only as that. So I might put it in the deck. I usually like Devastation better because I can keep my mana rocks. But those wipes you mentioned are great options.

Maybe Spreading Plague? I also like Jokulhaups and Obliterate as a game ender.
