Unstable Obelisk Discussion

Solid build +1! I like the style you have with this, very off the grid. Have you considered running Doubling Cube, Unstable Obelisk, Winding Canyons or Oblivion Stone?

Unstable Obelisk doesn't seem particularly good Bloodghast is a fantastic card, but seems a bit expensive (if you're ok with it then its fine in the deck) Kathari Bomber doesn't seem to be stellar, good in the early game but probably not great in the long run Fleshbag Marauder for Plaguecrafter simply a better card Pitiless Plunderer good for ramp but the tokens don't work well for the theme, they are sac-able creatures and they're colorless. the same goes for the Eldrazi token makers if you can find a card that makes tokens that are red or black it'd help

Interesting build, every consider Unstable Obelisk in stead of Meteor Golem?

TheAmazingSteve on Muldrotha Lands?

I suggest Wayfarer's Bauble and Font of Fertility as they ramp you early on and can easily be abused by Muldrotha.

Also, Zuran Orb is a must for recurring enter the battlefield effects of lands.

If you are looking for more landfall, Rampaging Baloths is a good choice.

I would cut the signets for rocks that can sacrifice themselves for value like Mind Stone or Unstable Obelisk.

What's your budget for this? Lion's Eye Diamond isn't cheap and the price isn't going down anytime soon if ever. Null Brooch is something you could try for a similar effect.

  1. Doesn't seem that great. I know it can be manipulated but I've never tried so I'm not really sure. My best guess would be that they find some way to donate it or they get their opponent's to negative life then sacrifice it.

  2. Grafdigger's Cage should be pretty easy to get rid of in /. You have stuff like Abrade, Shatter, Vandalblast to get rid of it. Best way to protect against Bojuka Bog is stuff that gives you hexproof like Witchbane Orb and Orbs of Warding. Ashes of the Abhorrent and Leyline of the Void are difficult to get rid of in your colors, your best chance is to use colorless stuff like Unstable Obelisk, Scour from Existence, Karn Liberated, and Spine of Ish Sah.

As you said, the deck loses to Leyline of the Void but any similar effect, with Rest in Peace being the worst, will shut down the deck as well. As such I'd recommend Scour from Existence, Karn Liberated, and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger to permanently deal with the problem or the less permanent but equally viable answers of Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Universal Solvent, and Unstable Obelisk. There's also the more specific and/or slower options of Argentum Armor, Gate to Phyrexia, Lux Cannon, and Phyrexian Tribute, with that last one seeming like a surprisingly decent possibility for the deck.

On another note, I'd put more board wipes in and Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, and the oft forgotten Slum Reaper to profit off Yahenni more or I'd swap them out for Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder. Given the reason you made this deck, I know you don't wanna do that, but he'd also be a decent addition to the maindeck as another token generator.
