Wave of Reckoning Discussion

Flagellum on A Doran toughness build. Your ...

Gives evasion for big butts:

Behind the Scenes

Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

Locks down high powered creatures:



Noetic Scales

Marble Titan

Mostly one-sided wraths:

Retribution of the Meek

Wave of Reckoning

Solar Tide

Fell the Mighty

General goodness:

Brave the Sands

Aura Shards

Assault Formation

Mass Pump:

Tower Defense


Bar the Door

Ideally, low CMC and high toughness critters reign with Doran. Vigilance is also amazing. Try to avoid plain vanilla creatures as tempting as they may be. Exceptions being Indomitable Ancients and Kami of Old Stone.

Love these changeing magic plays decks. +1 from meeeeeee!!!!

Wave of Reckoning = Plague Wind in this deck.

I haven't had much time to make any major changes to the deck yet. That's why there's no update. It should happen somewhere in the near future though.

Right now I feel like adding:

Chain Reaction and Wave of Reckoning for mass removal

Cauldron of Souls and Twilight's Call for recursion

Aura Shards to deal with those pesky enchantments and artifacts

Cryptic Gateway and Intruder Alarm for shenanigans

Flickerform to enchant Tazri with

8 cards to go in, 8 to come out. Ah! Already added Grand Coliseum, removing a plains.

Suggestions are, of course, welcome!

RazortoothMtg Wave of Reckoning is in. As for why the three other cards you recommended aren't in, I just haven't heard of them. I took a hiatus from the game when SOI came out and they're just too new to have been on my radar. Ikra is definitely a must, I'll take out Karametra for it. I've got too much ramp to need her anyways. I'll try out Sidar Kondo and Behind the Scenes too.

Why no Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper (probably spelled that wrong) or Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa? or Behind the Scenes for that matter. I'd probably cut the Yoked Ox, Vendetta. As suggested above, definitely Wave of Reckoning. It's much better than Wrath of God or Nevinyrral's Disk in this deck.

Wave of Reckoning is good in Doran, as it will get rid of lots of opposing creatures, but rarely yours.

Feels light on land. 34 lands, no artifact ramp, 3.5 CMC at the time of this comment.

I don't really like using things like Wakestone Gargoyle / Assault Formation, if they work well for you by all means. But there are some high toughness fatties you may want to consider that don't have defender, and would not depend on those cards. You have 14 cards with defender, very few of which can inflict any real damage. And without one of those "removes defender" enables are just rattlesnakes that people will only swing into when they know they can win. But there are loads of creatures which would not need to depend on those cards.

Some popular creatures that are not included in your list at the moment: Indomitable Ancients, Grizzled Leotau, Sapling of Colfenor, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Nyx-Fleece Ram, Treefolk Harbinger.

Other things for big butts: Crackdown, Slagwurm Armor, Retribution of the Meek, Fell the Mighty, Wave of Reckoning. I see you have included a bit of the anti-power package already with Marble Titan and Meekstone.

So, there is my random Doran feedback rant. For a long time I had the idea that I was going to build a wall Doran deck. But not having blue killed that dream Fog Bank, Wall of Kelp, Wall of Denial, etc. In my Doran deck I just used a lot of fat butts, anti-toughness cards, and had a minor treefolk tribal theme because it helped with draw and protecting Doran. Love me some Doran. <3
