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.

What the what!

I misread Wave of Vitriol in a horrific way. It Hoses every single deck that gives me grief except Elves and interacts with nearly every majorly important card in my deck in some way. Looks like it might be time to put It That Betrays back in too.

Hello there, thanks for your reply. I like Archfiend of Depravity too, he's a powerful card, especially when you combine him with cards like Grave Pact. However, if you're worried about aggro, then I should probably warn you, Archfiend might draw a lot more hate than you expect, especially if you drop him onto a crowded board.

When I suggested the Vraska cards, I was mostly thinking of anti-artifact tech. Another option you might consider is Wave of Vitriol. It's like having another copy of Bane of Progress, except it can also remove indestructible artifacts/enchantments, so you aren't completely hosed by something like Darksteel Forge. The Wave also hits nonbasic lands and lets everyone search up some basic lands out of their deck, which has some interesting applications for your deck: you can draw cards with The Gitrog Monster, get more Ob Nixilis, the Fallen triggers, or just hose an opponent who relies heavily on nonbasic lands.

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.
