Oblivion Strike Discussion

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.

Sorry for all the posts, but I keep thinking of new things I want to add.

Let's not forget that Control shells used an EIGHT DROP Planeswalker, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, to great effect.

I also thought of more pieces of current Graveyard hate.

There is the first ability of that Bolas Planeswalker, you just choose NOT to cast the card. That way it remains in Exile.

There is also the second ability of Nahiri, the Harbinger, although it would probably be tricky to fit one more colour in.

There is also Declaration in Stone, Oblivion Strike, and Final Reward.

Before you dismiss Final Reward as being too expensive, I have been using it this season to great effect.

So you see there is a LOT of Graveyard hate around at the moment.

chrclgry WRONG!!

Let me see if I can break this down so you'll understand it.

Oblivion Strike is this thing callled a "Sorcery". That means that you can only cast it during a "Main Phase".

Final Reward is something we call an "Instant". That means that you can cast it any time you like.

When playing against Blue Red Control that means that you can use Final Reward to get rid of Wandering Fumarole but you CAN'T do that with Oblivion Strike.

See, you play against a range of decks in a Magic the Gathering Tournament.

That means you have to set up a Sideboard that is versatile enough to face off against most of them.

Of course, you would realise that if you took three seconds to look at the list of decks I have under my "Sideboard Notes".

If you had taken an extra three seconds to check my "Cards Already Considered" you would see Oblivion Strike listed there.

Hope you learned something. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Final Reward is an over costed Oblivion Strike why don't you just sideboard that instead?
