Scarab Feast Discussion

Personally I'm not a huge fan of milling opponents in this type of deck, so Sphinx's Tutelage is something I would take out. Other things would be Scarab Feast and Rapid Decay. Imo they are unnecessary unless you are specifically facing heavy graveyard combo decks all the time. Also Sterling Grove would be a good option for enchantment tutoring with Zur the Enchanter, allowing you to grab New Perspectives easily.

ImtheRealBear , You are correct about Cast Out and I have to wonder how I missed that. All is good though because I can work on a deck that has Scarab Feast in it. As for the graveyard portion, it is rather easy to get into the graveyard as you will have more than 7 cards in hand due to Shadow of the Grave. Turn ends and you discard two Hedrons and then cast Scarab Feast and hit one. During your opponent's turn you just have to Haze of Pollen (hope they don't burn you) and you win.

I'm sorry to involve myself in this argument but I do play standard and Scarab Feast is on half the sideboards in t1 standard right now as well as some control mainboards. It is great graveyard disruption and the cycling makes it worth it in any matchup.

Show me where I said that I run Oblivion Strike?

That's right, nowhere.

I said Final Reward and that's through TOURNAMENT play. Not play testing. Won me a match just tonight.

Knocks Gods and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger cold, among other things.

Scarab Feast most certainly DOES see play in Standard. It's great for stopping Zombies getting reccured, and fantastic at removing some Torrential Gearhulk targets.

Transgress the Mind hits both Aetherworks Marvel and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. It has been a brilliant card in Standard for a long time. It was played in the last Pro Tour.

You get Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet to stick because you are playing Control.

I can tell by your post that you don't actually play a lot of Standard, so I don't expect you to understand these things.

However, your claim was "The last piece of the puzzle is graveyard hate for those pesky recursive threats. Right now you're pretty much stuck with Flaying Tendrils and Magma Spray."

I have shown that you were very, very wrong about that.

Now it seems you're trying to double down by just saying that amazing cards in the current Standard meta aren't very good.

Argy Whoah that's a lot of posts.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Scarab Feast doesn't see play in Standard. Kalitas is admittedly very good, but first you need it to stick. Transgress isn't going to hit those Relentless Dead or Dread Wanderers. Incendiary Flow is another neat one too. The rest are reaching.

That said, why isn't Grixis already a potent force in the metagame? And why does the addition of just another win-con probably worse than Torrential Gearhulk change anything?

And I'm seriously skeptical of any of your playtesting evidence that suggests that Oblivion Strike has a great effect on the game.

The biggest problem with Bolas is that it doesn't do much immediately when it comes down. You'd imagine that 7 mana would get you at least a hard exile as a down ability.

DarkLaw um, no.

You only forgot the best piece of Graveyard hate around at the moment.

Scarab Feast

Not to mention Transgress the Mind, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet.

Thanks for your comment Shadow12721,

I originally had Scarab Feast in the sideboard as an option to remove problematic cards from opposing graveyards but decided to run Never to Return instead which has the aftermath side removing target cards from graveyards.

The problem with most graveyard strategies like Haunted Dead and Scrapheap Scrounger is that they can be activated at instant speed and can always be activated in response to a Scarab Feast so I felt that recurring Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet for creatures and using Never to Return to hit a few problematic cards at the right moment was a better choice. If you are really struggling to beat a graveyard based strategies you can also bring in Dispossess or Lost Legacy to target these creatures before they even hit the graveyard.

However every graveyard based deck that I have played hasnt been a big problem for me and I have always been equal or favoured in these matchups.

What about graveyard hate like Scarab Feast? Shuts down reanimation effects and similar.
