Rout Discussion

Metachemist on Big Booty Pillow Fort

You might enjoy Rout as another board wipe option. I often find the ability to pop it off at instant speed to come in handy.

Metachemist on Xenagos all out to kill

5 days ago

Swap Atarka, World Render with Xenagos, God of Revels as the Commander. She is way scarier as a source of Commander damage, especially if you get Xengos on the field, as she then becomes a one shot one kill Commander.

I'd also add in some ways to crack back against board wipes. Altar of Dementia is a personal favorite of mine. Oh you cast Rout at instant speed in my combat, cool lemme sack my board to the Altar and you can mill 30+ cards. My personal best is making some mill 78 cards using it. Greater Good is also fantastic for this as it gives you card draw. On a related note of card draw Lifecrafter's Bestiary would be a good fit here as well.

Unlife on Victory Brings Honor, Defeat Brings Shame

I have a mono white deck and my experience has been that it requires a lot of fine tuning to get it where you wants. I'm not sure your budget so I'll just throw down a bunch of ideas and you can pick what works.

I agree that Extraplanar Lens and Snow-Covered Plains can be helpful but in general you need some more white mana rocks. Marble Diamond, Tooth of Ramos, Darksteel Ingot, Pearl Medallion, Thunder Totem and Tithe can all help with this. Pillar of Origins maybe work too.

You need some removal, or at least restrictions. Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Darksteel Mutation, Prison Term, Oblivion Ring are all options. Rout, Fumigate and Mass Calcify are great board wipes as well.

You could use some tribal support, Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton and Thalia's Lieutenant are both creature based options. Herald's Horn, Door of Destinies, Coat of Arms, Heirloom Blade, and Kindred Boon

I hope this info is helpful

Brylon on Shalai EDH

2 weeks ago

shalai edh update number 2:

out :: 21

creature:

Azusa, Lost but Seeking

Flickerwisp

Glimmerpoint Stag

Azusa, Lost but Seeking is very expensive. I am very aware she is awesome, so I've added her to a maybeboard if I decide I want to further upgrade this deck. Flickerwisp and Glimmerpoint Stag are removed because I am largely removing flicker effects because the strat is not powerful enough in this deck.

planeswalker:

Karn, Scion of Urza

Elspeth Tirel

Elspeth, Knight-Errant

Garruk, Caller of Beasts

Ajani Unyielding

Originally I wanted to take advantage of Shalai, Voice of Plenty's hexproof for planeswalkers, but I didn't make great picks on planeswalkers, and ultimately Karn, Scion of Urza, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion were really the only ones worth it. I can't reasonably afford Karn for this deck, so he has been moved to the maybeboard.

instant:

Liberate

Flicker effects have largely been removed.

sorcery:

Flicker

Fumigate

Sudden Disappearance

Flicker effects have largely been removed. In this case being sorcery speed makes them less valuable, because they cannot be used for avoidance. Fumigate is removed in order to make way for better mass removal.

enchantment:

Privileged Position

It's just too expensive. Shalai, Voice of Plenty does the same thing, and I can just cast her from the command zone.

artifact:

Coalition Relic

Darksteel Ingot

These are less valuable in a deck that is only 2 colors.

land:

Veldt

Vec Townships

Tranquil Garden

Riftstone Portal

Windbrisk Heights

Secluded Steppe

The first 4 of these are just bad, and the last 2 are being removed to make way for more plains.

in :: 21

creature:

Serra Ascendant

Birds of Paradise

Midnight Guard

Birds is great mana ramp. Serra Ascendant exists to be a win con. Midnight Guard is in as one piece of an unlimited token combo.

instant:

Condemn

Powerful spot removal that puts the card where the player can't get it.

sorcery:

Krosan Grip

Rout

Oust

Krosan Grip is in as artifact/enchantment hate. Rout replaces Fumigate. Oust is spot removal that avoids the graveyard.

enchantment:

Flickerform

Shield of the Oversoul

Presence of Gond

Flickerform is in for avoidance on key creatures. Presence of Gond is the second part of the infinite token combo, and Shield of the Oversoul is in because it looks fun.

artifact:

Relic of Progenitus

Urza's Incubator

Elixir of Immortality

Mind's Eye

Relic of Progenitus is in as graveyard hate. Urza's Incubator is in for cost reduction. Elixir of Immortality is in for mill protection, and Mind's Eye is in for draw.

land:

Path of Ancestry

Reliquary Tower

Homeward Path

Emeria, The Sky Ruin

3 Plains

Path of Ancestry is good for tribal. Reliquary Tower gives me no max hand size. Homeward Path protects me from effects that take my creatures. Emeria, The Sky Ruin lets me cheat back in dead creatures, and the Plains are added to support Emeria.

Cards for later

expensive, but maybe at some point:

Teferi's Protection

Karn, Scion of Urza

Vedalken Orrery

Sublime Archangel

Azusa, Lost but Seeking

Qasali Pridemage

maybeboard:

Debt of Loyalty

Reconnaissance

Metachemist on Derevi's? Enchantment Entrapment

3 weeks ago

Also consider replacing Winds of Rath with Rout especially since you're running Seedborn Muse. On a related note running a few Counterspell effects would be a good synergy with Seedborn Muse as well.

MaelstromHobo on Mayael EDH Primer

@TheMaggotPrince It's a great card that often functions as a second copy of Austere Command, but doesn't quite outclass it. I could see using it in favor of Rout for certain metas.

Enral on First Try at Commander, Plz Help

Also replace supreme verdict with Rout..instant speed boardwipe is always good!

Plahbie on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

Serenity is the best artifact/enchantment removal around - as long as you stay away from using them. Akroma's Vengeance is costly, but it works, and Rout can change the board immensely (in your favor) because it can be cast as an instant. Additionally, Rule of Law or Eidolon of Rhetoric can be extremely punishing against decks that try to combo off early game, or at least get a lot of things out.
