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

superman101 on Mana crypt banned?

That happened to me with Wave of Vitriol and Dragonlair Spider... Probably a glitch.

It That Betrays is really one of those cards you'd think would be an auto include in a sacrifice theme but in this particular deck it didn't do much when i tried it. It might still be good with Mazirek in a different build. Regarding Death Cloud i just didn't think of it and i'll have to give it a try, same goes for Killing Wave and Wave of Vitriol.

No. Mass reanimation is not in these colors. But there are a few good cards for one or two creatures at a time.

Most important inclusion is Mana Echoes

MagicalHacker on Help me punish mean players!

How many cards can you think of that are mean to "mean" players? I want to build a deck that forces opponents to win in "fair ways", and I'd love help finding cards for a deck like this!

Using MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Tutor Cards, MagicalHacker - List of All Gold-Hate Cards, MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Infinite Cards, and MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Control Cards, I found these cards (organized by color):

White (5):
Hushwing Gryff
Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Aven Mindcensor
Spirit of the Labyrinth

Blue (2):
Mindlock Orb
Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir

Black (2):
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
Chains of Mephistopheles

Red (10):
Harsh Mentor
Blood Moon
Burning Earth
From the Ashes
Possibility Storm
Price of Glory
Stoneshaker Shaman
War's Toll

Green (7):
Titania's Song
Wave of Vitriol
City of Solitude
Dosan the Falling Leaf
Hall of Gemstone
Heartwood Storyteller

Colorless (7):
Cursed Totem
Damping Matrix
Knowledge Pool
Null Rod
Torpor Orb
Omen Machine
Uba Mask

Multicolored (5):
Gaddock Teeg
Kambal, Consul of Allocation
Burning-Tree Shaman
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed
Vexing Shusher

Based on those cards, I think I'm going to build a gruul deck using Ruric Thar, the Unbowed as the commander or a cheap commander that can help ramp me into my cards (Radha, Heir to Keld). Some questions:

  1. Are there any other cards for gruul that you think would fit this theme?
  2. Are there any reasons to choose something other than gruul?
  3. If gruul is the best for this, what gruul commander should I use, and why?

Thanks for commenting SirBedevere we have a player in our meta that is obsessed with building artifacts and getting them to a indestructible/hexproof board state. I kept Wave of Vitriol in from the precon to deal with him. However I have taken note that many times in late game wave hurts the table way way way more than me and can put me very far ahead.

I think Chord of Calling would merit an inclusion here to get you to Terastodon or even just Reclamation Sage in order to take care of problem permanents.

I don't know how your meta looks but how has Wave of Vitriol worked compared to cheaper, instant speed removal like Krosan Grip?

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.
