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

I'd recommend Wave of Vitriol over Rain of Thorns.

Pelt Collector seems like an upgrade over Mold Adder as well.

Shinwizzles on Omnath, Locus of Rage

Awesome deck! Omnath, Locus of Rage is definitely my favorite Gruul commander. I notice that you have a lot of cards that deal damage to creatures, so it might benefit you to find a place for Repercussion in your deck. Can't decide where to aim Omnath, Locus of Rage's ability? Well with Repercussion you won't have to!

Rampaging Baloths has been an absolute powerhouse in my deck. The high CMC isn't much to worry about if you ramp enough mana up early on in the game. In the same vein, Zendikar's Roil is a little cheaper, and even gives you elementals for more Omnath, Locus of Rage triggers. Liege of the Tangle is also pretty solid. He can end the game pretty easily if you have enough lands to sacrifice to kill an opponent. It combos nicely with Titania, Protector of Argoth, but I'd only add her if you think you have enough effects that send lands to the graveyard (Scapeshift, Crop Rotation, and Wave of Vitriol are great with her!)

With all the mana you're working with, you might want to consider adding Genesis Wave, which gets pretty bonkers when X is anything over like, 10. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx might be another addition worth thinking about. Not sure if it'd be worth it, since you have more sorceries than any other category, but it works well in my deck.

Great deck, looks like a lot of fun!

carpecanum Wave of Vitriol is definitely one I'm looking to add; some unexpected synergy with Khalni Heart Expedition! Thanks for your suggestions. Any thoughts on cards in the Maybeboard that should definitely make it into the build?

enpc Sorry if I sounded overly critical. I only meant to wonder what else might be specific to that commander.

I will warn you that a token/value build is likely what you'll get out of playing WG artifacts, or at worst it will be stax when you play cards like Hokori, Dust Drinker or laying down the Lattice before wiping with Wave of Vitriol.

pedros234, I use the following artifact/enchantment removal cards in my Omnath, Locus of Armageddon v2.6 deck: Bane of Progress, Rite of Ruin, Subterranean Tremors, Shatterstorm, Wave of Vitriol, and Hellkite Tyrant. On a side note, Hellkite Tyrant + Tireless Tracker = easy victory. Hope this can give you ideas to overcome your meta.

Thanks for the suggestions Mannface! I'm glad you like my deck.

I have Torment of Hailfire in maybeboard. I believe it would perform well in the deck but I don't think that the deck needs more big finishers right now. I may swap it for another finisher (maybe Wave of Vitriol? as it isn't exactly cheap to cast and doesn't get rid of any blockers) at some point in the future though.

I haven't originally included Merciless Executioner and Fleshbag Marauder in the deck because they underperform in comparison to some of the other sacrifice effects (like Smallpox, which provides twice the sac-triggers for 1 less mana). However, I am lately realizing the added value of the creature to sac to its own effect, which makes it noticeably easier to cast when I don't have an estabilished board of tokens yet. I will try to find some space in the deck to test them out.

This deck is definutely scary. Have you considered putting Blood Sun into this deck? Obliterate could screw a lot of people over. You're playing Armageddon so why not go all out? Sacred Ground will permit you to play your lands from the grave too. Diabolic Tutor is a classic for tutoring. Wave of Vitriol and The Great Aurora are decent boardwipes in green. Polukranos, World Eater is a boardwipe on a stick. Hydra Omnivore could also be worthy of consideration: it attacks all opponents if it deals combat damage.

I hope these suggestions helped!
