Planar Outburst Discussion
1 week ago
So I run mardu superfriends at fnm right now and I have noticed something. Planar Outburst and Fumigate tend to do little for me since Heroic Intervention is a thing. If you dont have this issue feel free to ignore it, but Descend upon the Sinful has been my go to board wipe. Takes care of gods permanently also which is worth 1 more mana in my opinion.

Your maybe board looks like one awesome deck. Your main would greatly benefit from including bits of it. Regardless, if you want to keep it under $50 I will try and offer some budget options you may not have considered. Quicksilver Gargantuan is a great Clone and pairs really well with Stolen Identity. Identity Thief is awesome with etb effects. I also like Sram's Expertise, Servo Exhibition and Raise the Alarm all solid token makers. If you start seeing some value in adding more instant and sorcery spells, Talrand, The Sky Summoner and Talrand's Invocation are both solid in that type of strategy. I did see the incovation in the maybe board but if talrand makes it in the invoaction is good too. Elspeth, Knight-Errant starts to get out of price range but is so good I had to mention her. A few good board wipes are Descend upon the Sinful Planar Outburst and Planar Cleansing. The cleansing makes your opponents so sad cause it hits mana rocks too. Judge's Familiar Spiketail Hatchling Spiketail Drakeling and Spiketail Drake are all good targets for copy effects and give that extra value since they are counterspells on a stick, and they fly! One last good thing to cover would be draw. Since you are lacking a little, Jace's Ingenuity and Opportunity are both great at instant speed and really net a lot of cards for the investment. Mind Spring is really good since it can dig so deep late game. Think Twice Catalog Artificer's Epiphany Tragic Lesson all instant speed and most do not require a discard.

Nice deck idea. I built something like this a few weeks ago, it has since then been changed and ultimately retired. Not sure how I felt about the deck as it would get torn up by most control based decks. (Go figure, midrange always loses against control). Did better against agro shells and creature based decks. Link to the deck list is posted below.
Originally, the deck was a bant fog shell with great creature curve. Haze of Pollen and Encircling Fissure held the opponents at bay while you waited to build up your board state. Planar Outburst was used as a board wipe just in case opponent were running zombies or creature heavy decks and the plus side was that your land creatures were left alone.
Using Wall of Resurgence to put counters on Cascading Cataracts for a 3/3 indestructible creature who could eventually have flying thanks to Halimar Tidecaller seemed pretty good. The extra graveyard recursion thanks to the tidecaller, made Coastal Discovery and other awaken cards that much better. Sylvan Advocate is a great lord if Fatal Push or other cheap removal isn't running around and Eldrazi Displacer was great with resurgence. Slam down a Verdurous Gearhulk and throw the counters on your creature lands made for a great board state /finisher.
For planswalkers, I threw in Tamiyo, Field Researcher and Kiora, Master of the Depths for the extra control. Not sure if these were even a right fit for the deck, but they worked sometimes. Not sure if this helps, but I did like this deck archetype a lot.
The issue I had with the deck was that if Cascading Cataracts was removed or bounced, you were that much further behind. Not sure what else can be done to improve this deck. But +1 for sure!

When I built this deck I found myself up against a lot of creature based strategies so I put 2 Planar Outburst in place of the 2 Turn Aside in the sideboard. Other than that I've actually had a lot of success with it.

Might take out the Westvale Abbey, it seems to be terribly slow with little to no interaction and only life loss for you. Fumigate probably will replace Planar Outburst, and will give you three sources of life gain - Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Shambling Vent, and Fumigate, all for slightly different times in the game. The man-land for an empty opposition board when your opponent doesn't have anything or mana to kill you. Your creature, to have life gain, and block smaller creatures. Your newer board wipe to stop aggro decks and gain life for each creature killed that way. Awesome. Almost makes you want to sideboard some Trespasser's Curses to punish aggro decks bringing in wide numbers of creatures.

With all the different effects your creatures have i would consider throwing in an Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Cloudshift mainly for the art flavor, but the etb retrigger is nice, Planar Outburst boardwipe, Emeria Shepherd get back some useful cards from your graveyard,Descend upon the Sinful art flavor and board wipe,Goldnight Redeemer life gain per creature, and finally Aegis Angel for commander protection.
