Wash Out Discussion

Homing Lightning made the cut because of the temptation to wipe out all token, however Wash Out would do the same thing and then some.

I cannot recommend Wash Out enough. Not sure what to replace and I gotta run. Ill think about it. Maybe Homing Lightning?

Regoober on By the Same Token

I love it! It's so different than the build that I created! I like how versatile this commander's abilities lend it to GW builds.

For me, Black board wipes (read Toxic Deluge or Languish) and Blue bounce (read Wash Out or Cyclonic Rift) get me every time.

I started running things like Selfless Spirit, Rootborn Defenses, and Make a Stand for surviving my own board wipes and white/black destroy wipes, but they are dead in the hand/board otherwise. Rootborn is at least a Populate trigger in your deck.

I was surprised not to see Imperious Perfect or Hour of Reckoning. Cheap elves and more opponent wipes!

Last, and probably the only card you really should consider, is Fresh Meat. It doesn't do much for bounce unless you've got a sac outlet, but what a great comeback move!

Just a tip (and perhaps you already know, but I learned the hard way) make tokens at the ends of opponent's turns as often as possible. It leaves mana open for tricks, avoids summoning flu, and lowers threat level from unobservant opponents.

Well, given two people are strongly advocating for it, I'll give Crucible of Worlds a few tries, probably in place of Expropriate, which I'm testing right now. I can certainly see that it will be awesome if I have Trade Routes or Soratami Cloudskater. It will get some value if I have played Lotus Vale or Scorched Ruins or if an opponent has some land destruction... any other time, it will be a dead card, which is my worry. Only one way to find out if the benefits outweigh the disadvantages :D

As for Evacuation, I like it over Wash Out since my creatures are rarely out in large numbers, so I prefer the symmetrical effect since I am sure it will hit everything of my opponents, and it is at instant speed. If I had extra space in the deck for more of these kinds of effects, I'd be adding these in, but for now, they will be sidelined.

Good point on Dissipation field. It always back fires on me too. It is no Collective Restraint or No Mercy alternative, thats for sure.

Honden of Seeing Winds could be Crucible of Worlds or Rhystic Study. Better value.

Nykthos and no Deserted Temple? I see it on the moonfolk but that is a good effect to double up on.

Evacuation could be upgraded to Inundate or Wash Out.

@KongMing: Thanks for the comment! So my playgroup doesn't have much flying but does have a lot of combos, hence all the counterspells. Currently, for flyers I have Docent of Perfection  Flip and both Abzan Falconer / Talrand, Sky Summoner which can produce flyers. There are some others that might interest you (things like Niblis of Frost), but if you are playing against creature heavy decks (flying or otherwise), I might suggest going with additional bounces to what I have (Echoing Truth, Reality Shift and Wash Out are some good options). With your commander out, you can get some good with them being an instant/sorcery as opposed to a creature.

tappedout is rather good at helping you decide on legality of cards.

modern legal cards are (almost) all cards with a printing in a set printed 8th edition or later (aside from supplemental products like eternal masters/conspiracy)

Windstorm and Hurricane are decent replacements to counter flying threats (usually costing 3-4 mana as most fliers tend to be small in modern)

counterspells like Remand, Swan Song, Disdainful Stroke, Mana Leak and Assert Authority are decent replacements to counterspell.

Wash Out is also not modern legal, but cards like Cyclonic Rift, Whelming Wave and Quicksilver Geyser may be decent alternatives (also All Is Dust)
