Oblivion Stone Discussion

The main thing I can see Heroic Intervention help with is Oblivion Stone . That card is a problem, but not the biggest threat I'm fighting. If you're looking at something else I'm interested.

I think there's a greater need to find mainboard space for Ancient Stirrings to increase reliability against the proliferate turn 3 goldfish kills.

Thanks much; I'll give your Kefnet deck a hard look, for sure.

heckproof and APPLE01DOJ,
Yeah, those are all good examples.


> weird mashup of ramp into semi-big threats with suboptimal control elements.

That's actually a great definition of what Ponza is all about! I usually describe the deck more like "aggressive ramp into bulk rares that you would never expect could be good in Modern, with an overlay of annoying mana-denial Control", but yours will certainly do. The thing is, it works surprisingly well in many metas.

> besides fetchlands, what activated or triggered abilities are you hoping to stop with Repudiate / Replicate

I actually laid that out in the deck description, but in case you missed it here it is again:

  • Opponent transforms a Thing in the Ice? Repudiate the triggered ability and our team stays on the field.
  • Opponent wants to make us sac' a creature with Lili, put a Terminus on top with Jace, or ultimate whatever random Planeswalker they have? Repudiate the activated ability and we've totally turned the game around.
  • Opponent tries to Modular a ton of +1/+1 counters onto their attacking Inkmoth Nexus, wipe our board with an Oblivion Stone, Equip a Batterskull, Crew a Smuggler's Copter, etc, etc, etc? Repudiate gives us answers (or at least options) we never had in 'normal' Ponza.

Here are more details though, looking at the top meta decks in turn ...

All that said, it's clear that in many cases a 2-mana counterspell (e.g., Negate or Mana Leak ) is better than a 2-mana stifle effect ... certainly UW Control has found that to be the case! What's not clear to me yet is if that's the case in UG Control as well ...

I think Regna's Sanction isn't too necessary in the deck since you don't have a lot of creatures so it will help your opponents more than yourself. You may also want to remove Aetherflux Reservoir since it is kinda slow and is just asking to be blown up, if you are going for spell slinging damage then maybe Sentinel Tower may be better or just swapping it out for a Oblivion Stone for an additional board wipe.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd on Sideboarding Against Tron

3 weeks ago

You're playing an aggressive deck so you're already in good shape to beat Tron. Early Tron can result in Wurmcoil Engine or Ugin, both of which are problematic for you. If they don't get a quick Tron they still can get to Oblivion Stone , which forces you to reset. Sorcerous Spyglass is a good option because it's good vs UW Control as well. You can name Teferi or Jace which makes it harder for them to stabilize. Then you can slow-roll your threats which makes Terminus less effective. Especially because you play some creatures with haste.

To be honest I expect burn to be a harder matchup for you than Tron.

I don't like that sideboard at all. Way too polarized. 3 Molten Rain and 3 Sorcerous Spyglass is more than enough Tron hate. In this meta I highly recommend graveyard hate. Rakdos Charm is graveyard and artifact hate (both very relevant). 4 Murderous Cut is way too many.

If you run into Dredge you'll need more than just a Rakdos charm to win. Anger of the Gods goes a long way - much further than Blasphemous Act . Very few decks should have enough creatures to make casting Blasphemous Act easy. Although Humans and Spirits and Phoenix can outclass Anger pretty easily too. Damnation might be the move.

You'll also probably run into problems with Rock decks. They have a lot of removal and card advantage.

Maybe start with this:

2-3 Damping Sphere - this also hates on Storm, which looks ugly for your deck. But if you're worried about taxing yourself then play Molten Rain or Fulminator Mage . Molten Rain and Fulminator are also really really good vs Control.

2-3 Sorcerous Spyglass

3-4 Sweeper of your choice

2 Collective Brutality - Awesome against Burn and control and combo decks and synergizes with your madness. If your burn matchup is good then don't bother with this.

3-4 Rakdos Charm or Extirpate or Nihil Spellbomb or Ravenous Trap or some other grave hate

0-3 Fatal Push or Dreadbore or Murderous Cut . I wouldn't play more than 1 Murderous Cut . But having spot removal for Thing in the Ice  Flip, Crackling Drake , Tarmogoyf , Scavenging Ooze , etc. is a good idea.

GoldenAgeBatman on Sideboarding Against Tron

Thank you for those suggestions, sylvannos! Taking them into consideration, what about the following list?

2x Blasphemous Act (For dealing with the tribal/creature based decks in my meta)

4x Pithing Needle (For shutting down Oblivion Stone /Karn/Ugin/any planeswalker)

3x Molten Rain (For shutting down ramp/Tron)

4x Murderous Cut (For dealing with mid to late game creature threats)

2x Sorcerous Spyglass

Oblivion Stone may be a good one to get also to save your commander specifically a little on the pricy side for this deck if you do add it but its a full board wipe

@SynergyBuild: So, I suppose such a deck in question is fine enough? I was asking to be sure. For the last part of my previous comment, I'm currently trying to make a Primer for Superfriends; though what I have so far for walkers (I'm still at the start of all this, but the description is very unorganized, & some descriptions for some of the Walkers in question seem too much in a style not even most MTG players would've recognized anyway; this will be fixed though, when, I dunno…) is only the start of ~>140 (Plus the Heroes of the Realm Walkers & whether or not they deserve to be brought to the public... But Urza, Academy Headmaster ; what does http://www.askurza.com have to do w/ Loyalty? Aw well... I just hope the random results mean something powerful for him in an Unformat...). That said, does categorizing them require, say, Accorions? Ordered/Unordered Lists? After I get my answer on this, I should be all set... But, yeah. Thanks.

Oh, & I wasn't referring to Kess; more likely than not, she would have a better chance of winning, so Tier 1 cEDH Commanders are out, mostly; though just exiling such tutoring, from what I'm reading, Walkers wouldn't do much, & even stuff like Kess (Kas, in my book.), actually seems tame? Intriguing... (Spock: ... (Eyebrow Raised.) Chess.) Well, I was merely trying to find the Colors; biggest weakness for CMDRs, & how at least one can best anything Orzhov can even do. Now I think about it, I need to put in Oblivion Stone in the primer in the future Wrath section; how such a deck would work, when one is able to use such a deck, makes it stronger than most of its kin even. Back to Orzhov though, if the color's biggest opponents like CMDRs, & even Kess aren't strong enough, maybe we should wind it down a little from cEDH Ragequiting to a little less competitive, but still among the lines of Semi-Competitive, perhaps; though I'm confounded something like this can potentially anti-meta a cEDH Tier 1. I hope this post isn't too much for you though... & to think; I just found a forum post of mine about Philosophies... Maybe I might be able to make a Custom Planeswalker that's based, all while resembling that of a human; even though that being's philosophies is different from all conventional human life. Great... now I'm going to have to plan to do 2 Card Creation Challenges to myself now... OxO'
