Wave of Vitriol


Each player sacrifices all artifacts, enchantments, and nonbasic lands he or she controls. For each land sacrificed this way, its controller may search his or her library for a basic land card and put it onto the battlefield tapped. Then each player who searched his or her library this way shuffles it.

Wave of Vitriol Discussion

Have you thought about something like

Mycoloth or Squirrel Nest. Maybe also try Phyrexian Arena to replace some of your instant speed draw? Also, Smallpox, or Wave of Vitriol

Good point about land destruction. Personally I'm going more heavily into sorcery-based basic land ramp, with things like Traverse the Outlands and doublers like Mirari's Wake, Zendikar Resurgent and Regal Behemoth and including non-basic hate like Ruination and Wave of Vitriol.

Thank you so much for commenting. Claws of Gix seems like a risky move. If they dont die, you lose. a simple Fog could lose you the game. As for Wave of Vitriol, i have a lot of artifacts and enchantments and especially non-basic lands. (7 artifacts, 6 enchantments, 29 basics.) Although this does boost tons of counters, i wouldnt trade an enchantment for a team buff. It is also 7 mana... But Vigor seems ridiculous. Ill have to try that out.

Two cards that ended games in my old mazirek Deck was Wave of Vitriol and Claws of Gix. I would often use the Claws to Sacrifice all my lands giving all my creatures a huge boost to go for leathal. Vigor is also just a great all around creature.

GoldenDiggle thanks for suggesting these on theme cards!

I had tried detrivore before and couldn't get it work well enough. I think it'd be good after a land wipe but having to suspend it to get value early game is very slow.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary I also cut because I want my Wave of Vitriol and Bane of Progress to be as one sided as possible.

I like your suggestions for the big creatures though, anything in the deck look weak to you?

Some board wipes you could consider:

Akroma's Vengeance


Harsh Mercy

Hour of Revelation

Sublime Exhalation

Tragic Arrogance

Wave of Vitriol

Nevinyrral's Disk

Other spot removal you could use:

Swords to Plowshares

Krosan Grip

Return to Dust

Sylvan Reclamation

As well, I think your deck could make use of the fight mechanic and similar effects.

Question: why aren't you running land destruction that breaks parity? Omnath is cool as a beat down general, sure, but if you want to be King A$$hole, I think that MLD a la Wildfire, Ruination, Blood Moon, and many more should be your focal points. If you slant your deck to have a higher than average basic land count, you can start to utilize Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle as a win condition and control card, along with Splendid Reclamation & Crucible of Worlds to support your own reconstruction. Obviously this strategy needs a lot more control elements and stax elements in order to be competitive, but I've found it to be very successful at beating relatively fast decks. Turn 3-5 is usually when I fire off a massive land destruction spell that sets my opponents back considerably. Shout out to Wave of Vitriol for it's brutal efficiency in more competitive metas.
