Yeah, I didn't think I'd laugh a lot at this until I saw the reasoning for Oblivion Strike. I laughed too hard at that I think. XD

Thank you Ryjo. That card had slipped under my radar. I've just been reading about cards in the Spoilers topic and I don't remember that one being talked about.

You're right, it's a MUCH better card than Oblivion Strike.

With Chandra, Flamecaller I can manipulate it a little bit to try and NOT kill one of my Minotaurs.

It also has an advantage over Bontu's Last Reckoning in that it does other things besides board wipe.

Unlicensed Disintegration is just a good card even if there are no Artifacts on the field.

However, with eight 2 drop Artifacts in the deck, there is rarely a time when I don't have one out.

Straight removal is hard to beat in a Standard meta where Torrential Gearhulk is a thing.

Thanks for your Comments. They were very helpful.

I imagine you'll replace Oblivion Strike with Hour of Glory, as it seems to be an all around better card. You might want to consider Bontu's Last Reckoning over Chandra, Flamecaller as your sweeper since it can sweep more creatures away, or at least keep it in mind for when Chandra rotates out.

I notice your main deck removal is 3 Grasp of Darkness and 4 Unlicensed Disintegration. How often is Unlicensed Disintegration a Murder/Lightning Bolt combo with only 8 artifacts in your deck? Is the higher number of Disintegrations a nod to the worse case against Zombies pumping their lords out of Grasp range?

Tio_Infernape I did muck around with both of those Madness cards but there are so many decks they are weaker against, compared with other removal options I currently have.

Neither of them takes care of Heart of Kiran, whereas Fatal Push and Grasp of Darkness both do.

Neither of them Exile Scrapheap Scrounger and Dread Wanderer. Magma Spray does.

They don't allow 3 extra damage like Unlicensed Disintegration, they don't board wipe like Chandra, Flamecaller, and they don't Exile Gods like Oblivion Strike.

Declaration in Stone, Oblivion Strike, and Burn from Within are all answers to the new Gods, with varied degrees of effectiveness.

Show me where I said that I run Oblivion Strike?

That's right, nowhere.

I said Final Reward and that's through TOURNAMENT play. Not play testing. Won me a match just tonight.

Knocks Gods and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger cold, among other things.

Scarab Feast most certainly DOES see play in Standard. It's great for stopping Zombies getting reccured, and fantastic at removing some Torrential Gearhulk targets.

Transgress the Mind hits both Aetherworks Marvel and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. It has been a brilliant card in Standard for a long time. It was played in the last Pro Tour.

You get Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet to stick because you are playing Control.

I can tell by your post that you don't actually play a lot of Standard, so I don't expect you to understand these things.

However, your claim was "The last piece of the puzzle is graveyard hate for those pesky recursive threats. Right now you're pretty much stuck with Flaying Tendrils and Magma Spray."

I have shown that you were very, very wrong about that.

Now it seems you're trying to double down by just saying that amazing cards in the current Standard meta aren't very good.

Argy Whoah that's a lot of posts.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Scarab Feast doesn't see play in Standard. Kalitas is admittedly very good, but first you need it to stick. Transgress isn't going to hit those Relentless Dead or Dread Wanderers. Incendiary Flow is another neat one too. The rest are reaching.

That said, why isn't Grixis already a potent force in the metagame? And why does the addition of just another win-con probably worse than Torrential Gearhulk change anything?

And I'm seriously skeptical of any of your playtesting evidence that suggests that Oblivion Strike has a great effect on the game.

The biggest problem with Bolas is that it doesn't do much immediately when it comes down. You'd imagine that 7 mana would get you at least a hard exile as a down ability.
