Return to Dust Discussion

Instead of Relic Crush you could use Return to Dust, does almost the same thing if it's on your turn, but maybe it's just me that prefers to exile something rather than to destroy something.

You could put an Adorned Pouncer or an Ajani's Pridemate insted of an Initiate's Companion.With the equipment sub-theme you could use a Leonin Abunas just for shit and giggles. Also, kind of situational, but Shamanic Revelation is usually better than Harmonize (Or use both).

Swords to Plowshares is never a bad option.

All of those cards are not that expensive and are really good, I guess.

Talorc03, I hear ya when it comes to lands. Usually I run about 37 and then shift up and down based on average CMC and amount of card draw. So far I am finding 35 sufficient in the deck due to lower CMC and good ramp. I'll definitely throw in another one if I find myself mana screwed. Hasn't come up yet though.

Ralsek, thanks! I've kinda gone off Return to Dust and Sylvan Reclamation, especially in a lower CMC deck like this one. If I threw in an exiling artifact/enchantment removal, it would probably be Forsake the Worldly. I really like its flexibility with the added cycling. Sure, you don't get the 2-for-1 but it's great at 3 mana and the cycling ability. Don't know what removal I'd cut to make room for it though.

Senomar, I hadn't thought of Mistveil Plains...thanks for the suggestion! Do you think it's better than something that would just bring the Hammer right back to hand? For example, I've thought of adding Ironclad Slayer to bring it back to hand (and also have another body on the field).

Treehugger003, I've thought about Blade of Selves. I don't own a copy, but I see its use. In a 4 player game it would offer pretty solid card advantage, tutoring up a couple more equipment. I may pick one up!

You need Copy Enchantment for whatever direction you take. It'll just give you a second copy of your best enchantment.

Karmic Justice will retaliate on anyone using Krosan Grip or Return to Dust on you.

Rule of Law will slow your opponents down, while you get two cards per turn with Zur's trigger.

For more draw, turn to Eidolon of Blossoms.

She's an enchantment for three, She can let you manipulate the top card of your deck, and... She's a God: introducing Thassa, God of the Sea!

You are playing two fetchlands and farseek. How about Sunken Hollow or Prairie Stream or any other from this circle to benefit from the fetches?I prefer in multicolored decks Sylvan Reclamation over Return to Dust. I can recommend Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund in dragon decks. He looks like a upgraded Dragonlord Kolaghan but i guess he is more expensive (or you could play both of them).

Hey JuQ! Thanks for the suggestions!

I like the idea of Whispersilk Cloak over Trailblazer's Boots. I think I was worried that I wouldn't be able to target Tana, but Anthems don't target, I don't think I realized that. The Anthems are really the Crux of the deck, so Collective Blessing is here to stay.

The deck is pretty high CMC, but not so high that I think the deck needs the creature-cheaters. My meta is pretty slow; no combos, no land destruction, I can usually expect at least a dozen turns in a game. For that same reason I don't really need Exile artifact and enchantment removal. Return to Dust and Sylvan Reclamation are great, but we're more quantity removal over quality over here.

I like Elenda, the Dusk Rose, maybe over Rout? And I just don't own Journey to Eternity  Flip. Thanks again!

I like the deck, but it's a bit heavy in cost for my meta. You could consider Champion of Rhonas, Elvish Piper, Deathrender or Quicksilver Amulet to help easy those bigger costs.

For board pump spells Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Bloodspore Thrinax, Cultivator of Blades or Path of Discovery are also amazing. You could put any of them instead Intangible Virtue or even Collective Blessing as it is a bit too high cost.

I would always go for Return to Dust or Sylvan Reclamation over Vandalblast. They exile, target enchantments and don't upset too many players on the game (if you destroy all of your opponents' toys, only yours will remain on the battlefield for their removals).

Some board wide haste effects would also be helpful you know the usual suspects Anger, Fires of Yavimaya.

Whispersilk Cloak looks like an improvement over your Trailblazer's Boots and Prowler's Helm. Shrouds matters a lot.

You could ease a bit on your board wipes as you will usually be the one on the receiving end of other players board wipes. Maybe you could cut the two red ones.

I see Elenda, the Dusk Rose fitting perfectly on this deck as she benefits from tokens dying and later she produces a lot of tokens.

For a bit more of recursive recursion Journey to Eternity  Flip is an overperformer.

Thanks Spirit_Logan :)

BMHKain I want to say up front that I do not play cEDH, so some of my thoughts may be irrelevant or wrong.

I honestly doubt Fire & Sun can make it in cEDH. They're a great general, perhaps the best Boros has ever had, but Boros still doesn't have the draw and ramp power needed to consistently win turns 3, 4, and 5.

They also cost 6 to cast, which is a huge middle finger from wizards to Boros EDH players. Whatever. /end rant. Take opinions with grain of salt.

1) Okay, though Galvanoth can only hit 1/3 of the deck so you might want Sensei's Divining Top.

2) maybe, or maybe not. Kinda depends on what you like. Mark of Asylum and Repercussion are really good though.

3) You seem to have the best ones already... X spells. Some cheaper ones like Breath of Darigaaz, Fiery Confluence, and Flamebreak might help.

4) Probably not. You waste the creature-centric abilities and it's too slow of cEDh if I'm not mistaken.

5) Dawn Charm, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Samite Ministration, Tithe and Radiate could all be considered.

6) Stoneforge Mystic, Weathered Wayfarer, Generator Servant, Steelshaper's Gift, Reforge the Soul, Arcane Lighthouse, Scavenger Grounds, Inventors' Fair, and Blasphemous Act should be considered.

7) with the curve at 2.55...33 maybe? Not sure, as a normal EDH player I don't go below 36 usually.

Not sure about the staple list... can you explain that further?

Again, not a competitive player by any means. Can't wait to see more brews for this awesome new commander!

here's mine if you haven't checked it out yet: Super Smash Boros | Firesong & Sunspeaker EDH
