Tectonic Break Discussion

SteelSentry on How mean is "too mean" ...

5 months ago

Steelspike I guess that makes sense. I just don't know where to draw the line. From the Ashes was already in consideration, but what about Ruination? How about Keldon Firebombers? Tectonic Break for 6?

I personally don't see the difference between the Worldgorger and Jokulhaups, and say, Epicenter with Dingus Egg out? I wouldn't just run out a MLD without a clear plan to win either immediately or within a couple turns.

I will probably cut the MLD and just have a mono-R stax build. Mono-R isn't as bad as mono-W, and this specific deck I don't see becoming more "fun" than 2 color, especially since I can run non-basic hate in mono color without hurting myself. In fact, splashing black for Tainted AEther and Lethal Vapors seems way more oppressive than just having Scab-Clan Berserker or Manabarbs.

Gosse on Daretti - Artifact Stax

I picked up a Tectonic Break if it pans out for me I'll try the others. Daretri has an impossible time making friends.. hes unplayable in 2hg just cuz he hates so hard. In this type of stax build anyways but it's super fun to play. Heheh. If your playing stax your plan should be to shut everyone down so you can combo out a win mid too late game. It's hell to play against when your plays line up. Depending on your group stax is fine but it's not a nice archtype for a group not used to that game style. People tend to enjoy actually playing magic... but there's some satisfaction to be had by busting out of your resource denial prison my group takes alot of pride when they do.

Adamaro on Zo-Zu Hates Your Lands

Thanks for the compliment Suaz14! Here are some more. Please excuse my need to recommend creature spells... It's my favorite card type. I'll be sure to include some non-creatures as well!

You'll probably want to be drawing cards while your opponents are forced to discard cards because they're missing land drops or just barely making the cut at 7 cards in hand. In any case Sandstone Oracle is a budget friendly draw spell. There are plenty of other better options too, but it was just a thought.

I'm not going to be cruel and "suggest" the cards above, that's a lot of clicking around for you to do. So I'll just leave the list here. Hopefully you see something that sparks some interest!

Flagellum on Eye of the Storm

In that case...

Thoughts of Ruin

Destructive Force

Impending Disaster

Devastation Not really a budget option


Tectonic Break


Bend or Break

Borrowing from ideas I had with my Tajic deck, but this was all I could think of. Your options for MLD would expand a lot more by splashing .

Perfect_Phyrexia on [[Primer]] - Daretti the Degenerate (On Hiatus)

2 years ago

Yeah I have cards like Tectonic Break, Impending Disaster, Price of Glory, Ruination, Devastation, Jokulhaups and Decree of Annihilation in the resource denial section of my primer, but MLD isn't for everyone. I agree with you on Crack the Earth since its just an Innocent Blood for red but I would still vouch for Pyrohemia (Not Stuffy Doll lol). It sticks around, it's hard to interact with, and it's repeatable so I put a pretty high value on it when thinking of red board wipes. Starstorm, Comet Storm, Chain Reaction and Blasphemous Act are all quite good though.
