Oblivion Strike Discussion

Thanks! glad you like it. I only actually have one copy of Anger of the Gods, but I've been thinking about removing both Oblivion Strikes to put it back in. That way I have one of those as well as a Mizzium Mortars, which is almost a better version of Anger. The second oblivion strike will be removed for an Eldrazi Monument, which keeps my Butcher of Malakir and Thraximundar on the field, and forces me to sacrifice either a zombie or a harpy every turn.

Wow thanks! I took your advice pretty seriously for this.

A quick note: A feature I wanted to pull off with this is to use Rakdos' ability to get bigger creatures out more cheaply, so I've added my other copy. The other feature is to get tokens for Unbreathing horde and to sacrifice them for Thraximundar and Butcher of Malakir. Now I need to modify it and find ways to actually sacrifice them, apart from Champion of Stray Souls.

I've done the following:

Removed Torrential Gearhulk for another Rakdos, Lord of Riots

Removed Anger of the Gods for another Oblivion Strike

Removed 2 Magma Spray for 2 Incinerate. I do have Lightning Strike, but it's the 2 CMC from Theros, so for the sama mana cost I used Incinerate for the extra anti-regen ability.

Removed Heart-Piercer Manticore for another Visage of Bolas. I was going to go with Manalith, but since mana ramp isn't much of a feature here, I went with another Visage because it does the same thing and lets me search for Bolas.

Removed Wasp of the Bitter End for Diregraf Captain

Removed Smelt for Diregraf Captain

I haven't looked at the land yet. Just thought I'd share my thoughts. Thanks again for the help!

Oblivion Strike could be an alternative to Final Reward

Nest of Scarabs and Blowfly Infestation is potentially an infinite combo.

Necroskitter is super powerful with a -1/-1 counter deck

Coat with Venom, Touch of Moonglove and Virulent Swipe are neat combat tricks that give deathtouch and are much better than Serpent's Gift

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?
