Shatter the Sky Discussion

DadHumanPraetor on "Menace" to Society

Have you considered Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite at your top end? Its a pretty brutal card I run in my Iroas deck. I also run things like Cavalier of Flame and Urabrask the Hidden Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded to enable haste. I think the 99 can be built so many different ways its alnost not worth listing cards if its just a combat deck. I have a few combo lines as alt win cons and a light stax/control theme. Lots of wraths. I also run a lot of 2 drop mana rocks so I can put Iroas out on turn 3 most games, then play a Day of Judgment or Shatter the Sky or Wrath of God on T4. Even with a more combat focused build (I have rebuilt Iroas several times trying to make him good) I find it awkward trying to find a time to cast him after T3 because the deck is full of 4 and 5 drops that you want to get on the field.

As someone who is trying like hell to improve a mono-black sacrifice deck I can say that after playing this ... Wow. Its mean. The one place I see that I could maybe weasel my way past Shatter the Sky if I had enough on my board. Possibly Ugin, the Spirit Dragon? It gives you some power to reach out and punch along side a complete exile board wipe meaning that not only did you get rid of my pesky returning creatures but you negated any death effects.

The thing I've noticed with this type of deck is exactly what you mentioned: Set-up. It takes a while to get everything up-and-running for the ultimate smash. I actually agree with you about Time Wipe vs Shatter the Sky and I even hesitated a few times using StS simply because I didn't want to wipe all my Flux Channeler.

No, you cannot save your creature with this method. Shatter the Sky does not target, therefore the protection offered by Feat of Resistance will do nothing to protect your creature.

As a rule of thumb, you can use the acronym DEBT to determine what protection will protect from.

  • D - Damage
  • E - Enchant/Equip
  • B - Blocking
  • T - Targeting

Since Shatter the Sky does none of the above, protection will not prevent its effects.

If an opponent plays Shatter the Sky can I put Feat of Resistance on one of my creatures and select "white" as the "protection from" color save it from being destroyed?

Thanks.

Would Gishath be the better commander here, or is there a specific reason you run Atla Palani? Phyrexian Rebirth is sweet with Palani, and Shatter the Sky too, I guess.

I am very excited to be a part of this amazing community. I am the 5th decklord and 4th helper. I remember looking up to users like TypicalTimmy and Femme_Fatale in my early Tappedout days, and being in a similar place to them now is a very rewarding experience.

Favorite format?

I suppose my favorite format is Commander. I've touched upon why I don't play other formats before, but I'll say it again. I used to play Modern, because even I knew that Vintage and Legacy were way out of my league. I was running a deck I had titled "Total Extinction", after the combo of the deck: Lord of Extinction + Fleet Swallower. I was equipped with two Whispersilk Cloaks and an Aether Tunnel to better enable the combo. The rest was jank, although looking back Hedron Crab, Bloodchief Ascension, and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen probably weren't bad either. I went to a Modern game at my LGS, and it didn't happen because there was only one other person there. He offered to play his deck with mine. I accepted. He assured me that it was "just a deck he had been tinkering with".

It was a Breach Hulk deck focused around Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. I lost turn four.

Needless to say, I didn't play Modern again.

I found Commander, and I have been playing ever since. I also enjoy Limited, as is apparent by the number of draft decks I have on this site.

Favorite Deck?

My favorite deck is Yennett Simplicity. I'm a budget player at heart, and the low cost of the deck for me felt very complete. It is also the only deck on this entire site that I fully own.

Favorite Color?

My favorite color is Blue. It is, in my opinion, the most powerful color in the game. Running a deck without it is sad to me. I really want to try an Abzan aggro or Krenko deck, but the thought of abandoning my altered Rhystic Study is just alien to me.

Favorite Guild?

My favorite guild to play is Dimir. I love the thought of skulking around in the shadows and milling my opponents. I am a somewhat sadistic player (one of my favorite cards is Sadistic Sacrament), but in reality I am a Simic, as confirmed by multiple online quizzes.

Favorite Shard?

It's got to be Esper. All of my favorite commanders come from Esper: Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign, Sen Triplets, Zur the Enchanter, Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, and Aminatou, the Fateshifter. If I had to pick a second, it would be Jund, as I have a casual Jund sacrifice deck that's really funny. It usually draws itself out.

Favorite Wedge?

Sultai, without a doubt. Yarok, the Desecrated and The Mimeoplasm are both Sultai. Self-Mill has always intrigued me, and Yennett Simplicity was originally supposed to be a Solar Flare deck.

Card that best represents you?

Um... I don't know. I suppose I am a combo of Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Master Biomancer.

Hobbies Outside of Magic?

I consider myself a Creator. I write novels, create graphic novels, and compose music. I recently finished a piece entitled "Raindrops Sonata", a moody sonata which emulates three stages of a person's life and struggle with the reality of death.

Tell us about your life outside Magic.

I'm a homeschooled sophomore in high school, so my life is pretty exciting right now. I got a 5 on my AP Biology test as a freshman, and I am gearing up to take on two more tests at the end of this year. COVID-19 hasn't affected me as much as it has other people, which makes me feel guilty, but I miss my social life. But Tappedout has given me a community to belong to in these trying times.

How did you come up with your username?

It's my old XBOX username. Deino is Latin for "terrible", so DeinoStinkus means terrible stink. Honestly, the name has become very intertwined with me over time. It is the name I use on most websites and games, including Reddit (DeinoStinkusOU), PVZ2, and soon YouTube as DeinoStinkus Studios.

What first appealed to you about Magic?

Ooh, that's funny. I actually didn't want to play it at first. I thought it was going to be too complex (okay, still don't understand Mutate or Banding), and I wasn't really into fantasy at the time. In fact, I was at a homeschooler's conference in Atlanta where some players were playing on the floor, and they offered to play, and I said nah and instead proceeded to ride the hotel's 50-story elevator over and over.

It wasn't until Thanksgiving week that I learned MTG. My uncle and cousin were coming up, and they wanted to teach me Magic. I was like "okay, fine, how do you play?" So they taught me. I learned pretty quickly and by the end of the week I had two decks: a Rakdos direct damage deck that I had brewed up and my cousin's Gatecrash Extort deck.

Why is Magic important to you now?

It's a fun game, and I'm too invested in it now to quit. Personally, I'm glad I didn't choose Standard as my format, but we'll get to that later.

What are your thoughts on the current metagame?

EDH's metagame is unique to the environment, so let's talk about Standard.

Oh my god. I'm going to make a video one day talking about the history of our Core 2021 Standard and how insanely broken it is. I hate everything about Core 21 Standard, and I'm glad I don't play it, because I would've given up by now.

Are there any cards or strategies you feel overcentralize the metagame?

That's literally Standard in a nutshell, friend.

Combo: Grim Tutor

Ramp: Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

Aggro: ha, got you there, AGGRO DOESN'T EXIST IN STANDARD RIGHT NOW!

And then just look at Shatter the Sky. A nerfed Wrath of God in Standard.

How do you deal with an overperforming thing in your pod?

Everyone at my LGS runs Blitz combos and it sucks. That's why I have to resort to combos of my own and mass control with cards like Sadistic Sacrament and Blazing Archon.

What is your approach to deckbuilding?

I think of as many cards as possible to put into my deck, then I decide on a specific direction I want my deck to go in. Then I look up cards that help that direction, make replacements, research price, etc. Then I go to my LGS and buy the cards I need. I always have backups if they're out.

Share with us some of the decks on Tappedout you feel are under appreciated.

The Spellchaser decks by SynergyBuild and GoblinElectromancer are creative and amazing. I think more people should look at the First Cycle and Help! tabs to find new decks in need of help.

What new products are you excited for?

Double Masters and Commander Legacy! I suppose Zendikar Rising would be interesting, but I'm not a huge fan of the early Zendikar sets. I haven't got a chance to draft a Masters set before, so I'll definitely have to crack some packs with my friend.

Anyway, thanks for the valuable experience on this site! Thanks everyone who made this place a very special place to be a part of!

Shatter the Sky would kill all creatures, allowing for an easier time for your planeswalkers.
