Wash Out Discussion

Couple of other specifics. Giving the reasoning to try to impart some wisdom.
- Whipflare is conditional and low damage; it'll kill about 1/3 of your potential creatures, and artifact creature heavy decks won't be hurt significantly (like myr). There's no reason to run this instead of something less conditional, or not replace it at all because most of these effects are tiny.
- Whelming Wave, you need to be running enough of the creature types it doesn't bounce to justify using it instead of Wash Out or Evacuation, or it will be used against you.
- Triton Tactics is blocking trick; not worth fiddling with. Most threats are too huge of a scale for this to do more than delay things a single moment. Better to avoid being in a position it'd be useful.
- Elixir of Immortality is run by everyone early in their Commander careers. It seems to make so much sense, but why run this when you could be playing cards that win the game or do a better job keeping you alive?

You should be running Brainstorm. :)

Well the big pay off I'm going for is being able to Hibernation/All Is Dust/Ugin, the Spirit Dragon/Wash Out selected permanents. I tried using stuff like Douse/Chill/Hydroblast etc. but they are useless without either the color hack cards (Alter Reality, Whim of Volrath, etc.) or Blind Seer, who eats removal. So the strategy I've adopted is to basically counter control things that will end the game/affect my board until I have enough resources to win/dominate the game outright, using Blind Seer as the engine.

Skybound on My playgroup has a divide ...

AlexoBn Red, Black, White board wipes typically affect all sides of the board, save for the 9+ mana sweepers in black. Not only that, most of them are sorcery speed, and do not have the flexibility that Cyclonic Rift has. I have no problem with Devastation Tide, or Crush of Tentacles because they seem perfectly balanced.

buildingadeck Blue has mass removal. You just gave an example. Blue has tonnes. Devastation Tide, Crush of Tentacles, AEtherspouts, AEtherize, Evacuation Inundate Wash Out Whelming Wave Thousand Winds. The only difference is that they affect both sides of the board, and most of the unconditional ones are sorcery speed. I have no problem whatsoever with these cards because they seem perfectly fair.

Hipparchos: They're all good choices, though I'm not in love with the sorcery speed on Wash Out and Burn from Within. Defense of the Heart is fantastic with Riku--but this is more of a playgroup thing for me. It's just way too easy to get Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts with that thing, like Tooth and Nail. It makes perfect sense, but my playgroup would bristle.

I've swapped Vandalblast with Into the Core, and foiled out some more cards (pretty Time Stop and Twincast!) I'm planning on swapping Ixidron with Blasphemous Act, but the copy I have is in my Innistrad cube at the moment, so I'm going to just wait until I get a foil to make the swap. Still thinking about what to swap for Temur Ascendancy.

What's your opinion on Wash Out and Burn from Within?

Ever think about Wash Out and Courser of Kruphix ?

I've used Wash Out many times to either clear the way through an enemy or to get all my things back to hand (and possibly still affect an opponent) so that I can get out another round of all those ETB effects.

Courser combos well with several cards you already have in the deck Explore, Kiora, the Crashing Wave and the life gain out of playing lands in a ramp deck isn't the worst thing

Faceless_Being - Wash Out Is indeed already included in the deck. And I would agree, it is one of the best blue board wipes there is. Take note that lands do not have a color (unless of course, they are some type of activated man land) and would therefore not be returned to their owners hand with this spell.
