Settle the Wreckage Discussion

Settle the Wreckage and Vraska's Contempt seem the best things to put in here.

Finally got to play the deck tonight! Lots of fun, but I really have to take my aggro mindset a bit away ;) Was quite triggerhappy with removing stuff. So some more practice is needed.

There was only one moment when I did not had an answer (and I had Sunforger on the field. I was being attacked by 6-7 big buffed up Mazirek Tokens, and on that moment I wished that there was a Settle the Wreckage in the deck to deal with a scenario like that. Right now you have nothing to deal with someone who doesnt go super wide, but also not attack with one big creature. We have nothing for the grey area in the middle, since Rakdos Charm doest not take care of 8-9 creatures coming your way

I also added a Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker instead of Tymna the Weaver and that really helped as well. She isnt a direct threath on the board, but people are reluctant to attack you or shoot damage in your face.

Also I'm really thinking about adding Nevermore . Tonight I was up against Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge and I really had problems dealing with her. The guy played a shit ton of "I take an extra turn card" for free with her looking for his combo. This really put me in the position of countering and removing his commander. In this situation a Nevermore would have been ideal, especially targeting a Grixis commander, since they kinda lac enchantment removal :)

But overal it was a very pleasant evening and looking forward to test her a bit more. precociousapprentice do you have any cards that you doubt about? Or where you go I would replace those with something of the cards you named above?

I find it very hard to make cuts right now since I really want to playtest your build!

Thanks! I pretty much own all of it, too, which makes it tempting to build. I'm missing 4 Spell Queller , 2 Settle the Wreckage , Esper Charm , Seachrome Coast . It feels way better than Grixis these days.

The 2 Creeping Tar Pit are bad enough for tapped mana. And I never want 6 lands in play for Colonnade. And fast lands are nice to save some life vs the aggressive meta.

Since you play BGx, do you have any ideas for approaching the grindy decks? This morning I remembered that I'm in the colors for Lingering Souls , which could be decent sideboard tech vs UW and BGx. The grixis Snapcaster Mage / Kolaghan's Command engine was so good in those matchups, but without it I think I'm unfavored.

I like this deck alot, so kudos for that. I think however you should try to find room for 3 or maybe even 4 Moment of Craving . It would very help you alot against aggresive decks like mono-red, white weenie and the alike, and gives you something to do the earlier turns, apart from dropping Treasure Maps.

As for what to cut I would probably cut some kind of combination of the following Smothering Tithe , Ravenous Chupacabra Settle the Wreckage , Kaya's Wrath and/or Ixalan's Binding (maybe move 1 to the sideboard).
With some earlier removal, you could survive with one less boardwipe. Anyhow good work, I might try something similiar =)

In my experience, the best way to combat a card like Settle the Wreckage while playing mono-green is to stop opponents from being able to cast spells on your turn. City of Solitude and Conqueror's Flail are your best options here. Dosan the Falling Leaf is a third, but fragile option. You can also run Riftsweeper to get important exiled pieces back.

Yo heartofwolf, yeah for a Sunforger package there are some cards you have in there that is usually great, but there are also awesome cards like:

Just some card options~

Some colorless answers would probably be Kozilek, the Great Distortion and keeping a 4 drop in hand just in case. Null Brooch is also colorless counter spell. Also Amulet of Safekeeping will make him have to spend a little more on his Settle the Wreckage

I don’t think there are a ton of answers besides don’t swing with everything you have. Since green doesn’t have a lot of answers to instant spells being cast. Maybe just hold back any creatures you think you’ll absolutely need if he has mana up to use Settle the Wreckage .
