Destroy all nonland permanents.
Planar Cleansing Discussion
1 week ago
I've run a Queen Marchesa deck since it's realease, and it has a couple stand out cards that I think you'd appreciate. First of all, since monarch is not a permanent, one of the greatest value engines you can do is to play Marchesa then run a complete wrath package with Planar Cleansing then take advantage of the monarch while everybody rebuilds. Kaya, Ghost Assassin is pretty cheeky in the deck as you can wrath and save your commander, or Kaya. Gift of Immortality can be paired with a wrath, or a sacrifice outlet in order to get queenie back, and to ensure you keep monarch. Also Solitary Confinement can be a pretty big lockdown with this deck, it's not exactly cheap, but it is crazy good. Something like Debtors' Knell is great for rebuilding afterwards, too!

Good board wipes are on a budget are Planar Cleansing and Fumigate . It looks like you want to have a sacrifice theme but I only saw 1 sac outlet. Maybe look into Viscera Seer and Ashnod's Altar . If you are interested check out the Command Zone podcast. They have some great casts on deckbuilding. Also, Tolarian Community College on YouTube is a great source of deckbuilding info. Have fun.

I think Witchstalker as an on-tribe hexproof beater is enough to stick around, and it's got great utility when Solemnity isn't on the board. Shalai as well. You've got to consider Solemnity as only 1/100th of the deck, unless you're planning to go all in on the strategy with tutors.
As for Helix Pinnacle - I've never been a fan, personally. It's a mana sink, sure, but I think there are more productive ways to spend a turn. If it was more like Simic Ascendancy I'd be more supportive.

Great deck! I love that you've included Equinox , that's one of my favorite cards :)
I might throw Reality Shift into your sideboard or possibly mainboard. I like to run 2-3 targeted exile removal to take out pesky hatebears that sometimes avoid counters. Plus the possibility to 2 for 1 with an opponent's top deck noncreature card is an added bonus.
You're running 9 boardwipes—I might take out one or two of these (probably Planar Cleansing ) to bring down your overall cmc. You could put in another cantrip or two to increase your deck consistency. I might add Remand or Quicken or Opt or Peer Through Depths
Definitely love everything about this :)

1) Replaced Thwart with Force of Will for 0 cost hard-counterspell, as the first is ideal when Stasis in play, but in other circumstances returning 3 island to my hand would put me too much behind in the following turns.
3) Done some changes to the boardwipe section. As much as I love Fumigate for the extra lifegain effect, I'd rather have a different result than simply destroying creatures (already achieved through Supreme Verdict or some of the choices provided by Cleansing Nova and Austere Command ): the choice fell on Terminus , as the bottom of the library is a worst place than the graveyard for decks lacking tutoring, plus it can deal with indestructible creatures; the miracle casting cost is of course a plus in a deck that can control what it is being drawn next. Also, Planar Cleansing was too much of a drawback for me and the casting cost has to be considered: I find Cyclonic Rift a much better alternative to set back the opponents.

For these reasons I do believe all these lists should run at least one really good fast effect recursion spell that is not a permanent. It might get you back on your feet after a “destroy all” spell.

I like this. Really makes me consider running Karlov instead of Orzhov Scion but I've had her for 8 years. I'd say you should definitely get an Ashen Rider when you can. I'd replace Day of Judgment with anything like Kaya's Wrath , Planar Cleansing , or even Wrath of God if you can or want to. But that's just me.
Looks pretty solid!

For the good cards ... I'm not a regular Sydri pilot, but here's a penny for my thoughts on this fun commander. Tamiyo's Journal is a good beater that plops out artifacts/draw. Faerie Artisans / Thoughtcast / Thirst for Knowledge are really good for this deck, Dispatch / Stoic Rebuttal is always good for redundancy. March of the Machines is good in case your commander gets tree'd or stolen . Mechanized Production might be good for Phyrexian Metamorph / Master of Etherium /tokens from Sharding Sphinx / Smothering Tithe etc.
For the weaker cards ... Planar Cleansing could be replaced with Hour of Revelation . Profane Procession Flip/ Predator, Flagship could go because of its overall cost, and it doesn't do anything else over time or when it enters, and it doesn't fit the themes of the deck. Revel in Riches might be good with the amount of board wipes but you'll be targeted for it, it's an upkeep trigger (so people will have time to respond, and with sorceries). Treasure Map Flip is rather weak because it turns into a land so you can't abuse it like an artifact, and is 5 mana to eventually draw 3 or maybe 3+ cards. Treasure Mage does 'draw' and the best big artifact to abuse, but it's overall 9 mana unless you have Master Transmuter or something, and doesn't get any wincon that I can see. Ruthless Knave takes a lot of hoops to get through to draw or ramp, but a lot of my criticisms were at the treasure cards so you keep that theme then drawing more cards for no mana is good. Palladium Myr is not ramp, it's just sadness. Sphinx of the Steel Wind is expensive for a 7 turn clock on turn seven, but it's fun because it could fit your meta and is protected from the colors outside your color pie.
For win cons ... Aetherflux Reservoir / Staff of Nin / Caltrops are all all-star with this commander, and Tezzeret the Seeker could fetch caltrops/aetherflux but non paradox engine etc. If you're interested in a combo win, you could do Sword of the Meek / Thopter Foundry , or Sharuum the Hegemon / Phyrexian Metamorph and something to abuse the etb loop like Altar of the Brood / Genesis Chamber / Contraband Kingpin / Disciple of the Vault / Blood Artist / Marionette Master etc.
