Planar Cleansing Discussion

DemonDragonJ on Phyrexianized Versions of Existing Cards

1 week ago

Now that Phyrexian mana exists, I feel that WotC has not truly used that mechanic to its fullest potential, so I shall make some Phyrexianized versions of existing cards, and I hope that everyone likes them.

Praetor's Disdain Show

This card is obviously modeled after Cancel or the original Counterspell; I had originally planned to have it cost only , but that would have made it far too powerful, so I increased it.

Praetor's Scorn Show

Thus far, there has never been a card that uses multiple colors of Phyrexian mana, so I have made such a card, which is modeled after Utter End, but it only destroys a permanent, rather than exiling it, to prevent it from being strictly better than the other card. Alternatively, I could increase the cost to and keep it as an exile effect.

Praetor's Spite Show

This card is modeled after Thoughtseize, Distress and Duress; I originally planned to have it cost , but I then thought that it would be too powerful, in that case.

Praetor's Shield Show

This card is modeled after Righteous Aura, and I was originally planning to have the casting cost be only , but I increased it to prevent it from being too powerful. I am not worried about the activated ability being capable of being used for no mana, because a player will not pay 4 life unless the source of damage that they wish to prevent will deal at least 4 damage.

Phyrexian Replicator Show

This card is obviously modeled after Doubling Season, but I increased the cost to prevent it from being strictly better than that card.

Phyrexian Purge Show

This card is modeled after Planar Cleansing, and I am not worried about its casting cost, because I made it very mana-intensive; a player will pay 8 life to cast it only if they are very desperate.

Phyrexian Grimoire Show

This card is modeled after both Greed and Book of Rass (which, as a side note, really needs to be reprinted), so its casting cost is between the costs of those two cards. Its controller can draw cards for no mana, but 4 life is a high price for a single card.

Temporal Flux Show

I could not conceive of an impressive name for this card that contained the word "Phyrexian," so I used a name that had not yet been used for a card. I modeled it after Time Warp and Temporal Manipulation, but I increased its cost to prevent it from being strictly better than them.

Gitaxian Tome Show

This card references Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and is modeled after both Jayemdae Tome and Arcane Encyclopedia.

Phrexian Blueprints Show

This card references Urza's Blueprints, and its overall cost is lower, because I feel that, if that card had been printed today, it would be less expensive due to power creep.

Phrexian Amulet Show

This card is modeled after Quicksilver amulet.

Those are all the designs that I have conceived at this moment, so I shall post more as I conceive them, but what does everyone think of the cards that I have designed, thus far?

Sorin_Markov_1947 on You 2 can beat dream trawler in standard.

This is an interesting concept, but I think the meta just isn't in the right place for this. Any mono-red aggro goes under you, Temur Clover/Jeskai Fires goes over you, Azorius Control hardly exists anymore, but it waits you out as well, Rakdos Sacrifice you have no meaningful interaction with...

Just the lack of non-creature interaction in this deck means it won't be able to interact with the artifacts and enchantments that are so pervasive in this meta. You've got Planar Cleansing, but with nothing to follow that up with, you're still going to lose because your opponent can just rebuild.

Most of these cards are decent cards, they just don't fit together. You need a lot of sac-chaff for Doom Foretold and Plaguecrafter to work well, you need to make your opponent draw cards for Underworld Dreams to do good work (you also need more black mana, from the simple fact it costs , and Covetous Urge basically costs ),

Wiggyman on Avacyn and the Audacity of this B***h

2 months ago

If you're trying to irritate friends, just add a whole ton more boardwipes. Nevinyrral's Disk is great, because it doesn't say that you actually have to sacrifice it, so it's a one-sided wipe every turn. Also, Planar Cleansing, and for some reason I've fallen in love with Cleansing Nova. I also think Heliod's Intervention is a good addition to any white EDH deck, but that might just be me.

Love the deck, I've wanted to build one like this in the past.

NV_1980 on Deep Halo Impact *PRIMER*

Hi epartica,

Thank you for your feedback! Windswept Heath and Flooded Strand are in here mostly for filtering purposes. We filter lands out of the deck so that we need less actual lands and thereby slightly increase the chance of drawing something other than lands when we already have enough of them.

Idyllic Tutor is actually due to be replaced. We recently noticed it's not doing that much for us and we were thinking maybe Scroll Rack would be a more useful addition. We are thinking about writing a primer for this deck. When we do, we will probably also make this replacement.

Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is in here to protect Avacyn from getting exiled; well over half of all the most common exile spells are (at least partly) white, so we felt this was a good addition. And when an exile spell (or maybe some sort of forced, targeted sacrifice) is of a different colour, well that's what Tails' second ability is for :)

So far both Mox Opal and Chrome Mox have been working well for us. The deck contains 21 artifacts in order to make the use of Opal a reality. Evicting a white permanent for Chrome can be annoying, but we've experienced often that a game-state could be turned in our favour because of it.

We're not sure whether we have an Hour of Revelation, but if we do it will definitely replace Planar Cleansing. Thanks for the tip!

Love the deck NV_1980, always happy to see another deck with a love for angels! Before I give suggestions I would like to ask about some cards and why you chose to add them in your deck. Also love Pariah such an underrated card!

The first one are both Windswept Heath and Flooded Strand as a mono color deck why do you want these lands?

Second is Idyllic Tutor you don't seem to have to many enchantments, are there any that stand out to you?

Third is Eight-and-a-Half-Tails even though you can make something have protection from white that won't save you from a board wipe because nothing is targeting it. Unless you do something else with this card I'm not sure it will do much for you.

Lastly, the Chrome Mox and Mox Opal I find these conditions sometimes hard to meet because white has horrible card draw so I wanted to ask if these are still working out for you.

After making my angel deck I find that mono white biggest problem is card draw but your control in this deck is solid, which stops a lot of faster decks and anything that might hurt you on your turn. I have plenty of board wipe suggestions to give to you for instance Hour of Revelation is a direct upgrade to Planar Cleansing.

EldraziOfRavnica on Nissa, Who Hits You With Trees

2 months ago

Too bad you aren't in white, then you can have Terra Eternal and possibly cards like Planar Cleansing that hit all nonlands. I can't think of a good Commander, or I'd suggest a switch. At the moment, it's not worth it, as Nissa is rather absurd.

Valius on Tap Tap Repeat

2 months ago

I think I have a Planar Cleansing, but the mana cost always turned me away from it. Always figured the 4cmc wipes to be more competitive, but I do like the hits all permanents. That does, however, have the downside of hitting my artifacts and enchantments, and I’m not too worried about my enemies having those when I have stuff like Aura Shards. I’ll have to test it and see what it feels like.

Expedition Map is nice to find non-basics with, especially Survivors' Encampment, and if I don’t need that then I can hit Maze of Ith with it.
