Considering most enchantment wipes cost 4 or more mana you might want to run Gaddock Teeg . You can also run Sanctum Prelate and Chalice of the Void if the wipes all share the same CMC. Glen Elendra Archmage is also another handy creature that can stop boardwipes from being used.

Quirrel on Tana and Tymna Blood Pod - Primer

2 weeks ago

Kiyomei Blood Pod, generally speaking, has a lot of problems against cards like Cursed Totem and Humility (they slow this deck down a lot, obviously)

The other way to fight this deck is to keep Tymna from drawing cards. Good, efficient sweepers like Toxic Deluge , Fire Covenant , and Pyroclasm can help keep them off the gas pedal. There are a ton of other good sweepers, just make sure you can hit the board for 2 damage, and keep Tymna from hitting people.

If you take a good look at Sanctum Prelate , you'll see that it only stops noncreature spells. Blood Pod is a hatebears deck first and foremost, so a card like Sanctum Prelate really doesn't do much against Blood Pod.

The best way, in my opinion, to beat Blood Pod is to disrupt their card advantage, and then win quickly. Because it is a staxy creature deck, Blood Pod wants to drag the game out. With their big swingy creatures, they're advantaged in the long game. Sweep their card advantage away, and then combo them. It's hard because of their stax pieces, but that's the best way to combat them.

Beating Blood Pod is tough (it's a good deck and top tier for a reason!) but I hope this helps!

Kiyomei Well a lot of the classic all in grave hate cards such as Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void , Along with cards that can exile the yard at instant speed such as Tormod's Crypt . As for stax effects that less directly effect our graveyard nothing REALLY gets us. I wouldn't say our game plan is exactly good vs stax it's effected mostly the same as any other deck with how it's slowed and effected. Something of note though is that while Grafdigger's Cage is still extremely good vs us we can still work around it by using Mimeo to assemble our Nooze combo. However it's still really good vs us.

As for Sanctum Prelate the deck itself has a distribution of 6 , 28 , 16 , and 9 . The most impactful thing to name for hindering our progression would most likely be One just due to the sheer density of dorks and most of our cantrips. However if you want to directly hinder our game plan the best name would probably be Two? This will stop things like Survival of the Fittest and Flash along with a fair bit of interaction.

Hey there, I am doing a bit of research on The more competitive decks out there for my Stax deck.

  • So the first question is: what kind of "Stax" or "Hate cards" would shut this deck down or make it impossible for you to win under certain singular or combined Effects?

  • And the second question is about Sanctum Prelate as I am trying to gather as much information about the stopping power of calling specific CMC with this card vs certain strategies, Would you consider CMC ,, or CMC to be more effective here to disrupt your gameplan?
