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

pjeseb on Budget Karador, playing from the grave

Hello there! Some ideas for ya:

Splendid Reclamation seems like a good idea for a deck that is this heavy on self-milling.

Some reasonably priced cards that get better the more creatures that are in your graveyard are Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Ghoultree.

Sigarda, Heron's Grace stops (most of) the graveyard hate that could potentially ruin your whole game.

Finally, Wave of Vitriol is simply a great card in Commander decks that don't make heavy use of either enchantments or artifacts (assuming you're playing against people who do, that is).

Cool deck. Have you thought about adding Wave of Vitriol? It'll get you a few cards from your nonbasic lands, and it seems like a pretty great card in general.

You might also consider Splendid Reclamation and Drown in Filth.

Wildfire, Destructive Force --> Ruination, Winter Orb --- will have to find a spot for Boom/Bust (maybe even Wave of Vitriol)

Seems alright. Few cards seem a bit... odd or like you were trying to replace cards?

I'd recommend removing the following:

Judging upon you creature base, you don't have much of a win-con. You have tons of 1 and 2 drops which will help Yisan trigger multiple times in one turn, but no end result. The only two I'm really seeing are Craterhoof Behemoth and Shaman of Forgotten Ways. While both are good, Craterhoof seems moot since I imagine your board being blown up before getting the chance to attack with anything besides him. If you trigger Shaman early on, that can easily be a game-ender, but what happens if someone uses Swords to Plowshares on it before you get the chance? Not trying to be mean, or pick you deck apart, but unless I'm missing something your deck has a solid premise with nowhere to go. Most Yisan deck's I've seen or played against create some form of stax, or each creature he cheats into play has a prominent or dominating effect on the board/game. Being fast as hell feels super awesome until you have nothing to do, but can't win.

Some cards I'd recommend are below and some will hopefully help abuse Yisan's verse counter-curve:

So many cards... Point being, ramping into Yisan and triggering his ability is awesome, but a moot point if you can't hit anything that does something. But again, I could be completely missing the point of what you're going for, and if so I apologize for the wall of text. It's your deck and you are free to do with it as you please, I just wish you a grand time of obliterating your games.

Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are pretty common standards for green mana ramping

Far Wanderings is HUGE value in a deck that is likely to have a graveyard when it shows up

Burgeoning could be a good effect for you if you get the draw engine going

Rampaging Baloths is another landfall monster

Courser of Kruphix can help you find more lands to benefit from your commander's ability.

Scavenging Ooze and Deathrite Shaman are great utility cards. Ability to mess with others' graveyards can really come in handy

Wave of Vitriol can be a nice card to run depending on how nasty your meta is

Hua Tuo, Honored Physician can help you get cards back from the yard. As can Phyrexian Reclamation

Overall looks like a fun deck to play. Hopefully you can find something useful out of the above suggestions!

Hi ay.lobo: thanks for the comment.

I have my doubts about Wave of Vitriol because it not only says 'each player sacrifices all artifacts' (which can be quite painful for me), but in addition lets the player search for land, while the purpose is denying mana.

I have considered Blasphemous Act, and I think you are right: I should at least add it to the sideboard. So far I run enough creature destruction in this deck, but very useful against swarm decks.

Vandalblast: yes, indeed, very useful

Hmmm... More destruction? On the top of my head: Wave of Vitriol, Blasphemous Act, or even Vandalblast if your opponents are running pesky artifacts like Crucible of Worlds.
