Urza's Ruinous Blast Discussion

No way, you removed Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx!? Could you explain further why you removed it from this mono-colored deck? I actually play both Nykthos and Ancient Tomb in my own Balan deck, by the way.

If you are considering Urza's Ruinous Blast, are you not concerned you would not be able to cast it considering you only have f o u r legendary creatures/planeswalkers in total? Sure, you have access to Balan, Wandering Knight in your command zone, but I would still consider the requirement of legendary sorceries a real draw back. At least with Terminus, you can cast it when your board is empty, even better when top decked too. Only cool thing I have to admit involves the fact that you can tutor Urza's Ruinous Blast with your recent change Thalia's Lancers.

I would reconsider and having something like Tragic Arrogance instead, so that you would most likely have more control of what you destroy. I would much rather have them keep their redundant things like mana dorks than their commanders/planeswalkers/other legendary permanents. The card can also help in a matter of politics.

No Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage? I'd also consider Urza's Ruinous Blast for the sideboard.

I've been trying to come up with a similar deck that can make use of Kamahl's Druidic Vow, Urza's Ruinous Blast,Mox Amber, and/or Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip. I wonder if any could make it into your list but so far my attempts have been a bit "clunky" and I haven't found that right mix of cards that generates enough consistency for me to be satisfied. I still think there is a lot of potential in the combination of those cards with legendaries/planeswalkers. Anyways you could consider Urza's Ruinous Blast in the sideboard at least, to help agaisnt decks that try to race you.

Fistly I'd switch Phenax for a path or swords (probably swords first) Cut Jhoira's Familar for another mana rock. YOU NEED THESE!!

Removal and mana fixing is gonna be the MOST critical thing here, making sure you're on color to cast most of your spells without your commander is gonna be very beneficial. you cant just rely on your commander to be the ultimate haymaker. Either protect it or find ways to play around it.

Protection: Lightning Greaves Swiftfoot Boots

Assuming that you add these two, I'd actually keep most of the creatures on that list.

my cuts: Gahiji, Honored One: Not that impactful, and the +2/0 is kinda meh compared some thing like Heroes Podium... Would swap this creature for Heroes' Podium

Omniscience even with Jodah out this is just 5cmc counterspell bait. yes its valuable once you get it but if you draw this on your opening hand... its god awful till turn 5 if you're lucky. other than that is just 10 mana "win the game even more". awful when behind. Would switch this for something like Maelstrom Wanderer

Opal Palace another "Win more" card, makes your commander bigger, which is pretty irrelivant. Would use something like Kor Haven or Shizo, Death's Storehouse or even Yavimaya Hollow

at the time of post I'm sick so most of my includes right now are only the tip of the iceburg.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip Digs through your deck, then ramps you later. SUPER strong and very hard to get rid of. Amazing if you cant jodah in creatures.

Legacy Weapon Gets rid of problematic permanents, even at 12 mana (Cast and use) i'd recommend this... also the ability is INSTANT SPEED!!! :D

Sunbird's Invocation hello 3rd way to basically cascade through your deck. VALUE ENGINE.

Yomiji, Who Bars the Way Grave recursion if you protect this guy. Better than Athreos in the grave recusion part, but worst if you're forcing players to either pay 3 or return to hand. its nice to have both.

Urza's Ruinous Blast Better than WoG, Damnation. bad against Captain Sisay decks.

Zacama, Primal Calamity Just like legacy weapon, deals with problematic permanents.

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage We talked about this guy being really good. surprised hes not here.

Decree of Pain board wipe + card draw??? YES PLEASE.

Time of Need Would run in Captain Sisay, so if its worth it there, its worth it here.

Kamahl's Druidic Vow another Genesis Wave. Best when you have TOO much mana. not bad if you're flooding either. Great card.

Austere Command Just does everything. but makes food or coffee... Im sad.

Merciless Eviction Amazing board wipe when behind, amazing ANTI PLANESWALKERS card.

The Immortal Sun Value for 6 mana... This thing is STUPID.

Cut inexorable tide you aren't going to be casting a ton of spells just a few, unless you're gonna go the paradox engine route, either way if you're trying to get extra counters I'd play Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. It's a great creature that does a lot for cheap.

Also cut some sorceries, you don't need more than like 5 board wipes.

As far as some cards you should definitely have...

Also are you insane not playing The Chain Veil in a walker deck? It's 1,000% core to the deck.

A couple cards I've been testing and really enjoyed though has been Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and Urza's Ruinous Blast.

Lastly... Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated get them.

Personally I would recommend you take out Jaya Ballard, to me she doesn't fit your deck that well. Most of the instants or sorceries in your deck are cheap to cast to begin with, you have plenty of card draw so her other +1 doesn't benefit you as much, and her ultimate is just not good enough to have to wait 3 turns for. I would also recommend Fumigate over Urza's Ruinous Blast. Most of the stuff you would want to exile right now are legendary so that benefit doesn't mean as much, and the lifegain from Fumigate could save you in close matchups.

I like it but if take out Urza's Ruinous Blast. U only have Lyra as a legendary so u would need her out to cast it. Maybe try Settle the Wreckage instead for a similar effect?
