Hope of Ghirapur, Despair for All (Send Nukes)

Commander / EDH* Artifact Colorless Combo Land Destruction Ramp Voltron



Do you like Nuclear Proliferation? Playing Politics? Do you want to push the big red button?

Then this deck is for you!

We take the little thopter Hope of Ghirapur and turn it into a NUCLEAR BOMBER.

The Hope of Ghirapur will be the Despair of your Opponents when they see this NUCLEAR BOMBER continue to DROP BOMBS on them turn after turn.

Here is how its done. A simple, janky combo.

Hope of Ghirapur + Worldslayer + Darksteel Plate (Indestructibility).

Worldslayer & Darksteel Plate turn our little unassuming thopter into a NUCLEAR BOMBER.

After equipping your NUCLEAR BOMBER with the payload and indestructible plating, it's time to DROP BOMBS and blow up everyone's everything. All that is left is your NUCLEAR BOMBER (and whatever else you have decided to spare with Darksteel Forge perhaps).

At this point there is nothing left to do but to continually DROP BOMBS on your opponents as you swing away each turn destroying everything they love.

But don't worry, all of their hopes will soon fade, exactly 20 turns later when the Hope of Ghirapur has finally connected for the last point of commander damage. Then it is on to the next opponent.


Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth Gives infinite mana for Voltaic Key + Lux Cannon so you can Fire INFINITE NUKES at everyone's everything. Or use our GIANT DEATH ROBOT Walking Ballista to fire DEATH LAZERS into everyone's faces.

PLAN C: Nevinyrral's Disk + Darksteel Forge Nuke the board every turn.

How do you deal with things removing Worldslayer or Disk, or any of your combo pieces without Forge out.

CynicalDog Probably not a bad idea to replace three wastes with the Urza's trio, even though I've never seen all three on the board at the same time.

MagesOfTheBeach The only real problem is exile. There isn't much we can do about people exiling all of our combo pieces. Null Brooch is the best protection we have as well as Conqueror's Flail (which I may add to the deck). But, every deck has that problem.

As far as things getting destroyed, that is not a problem. We have tons of recursion: Buried Ruin, Trading Post, Junk Diver, Myr Retriever, Scrap Trawler, Workshop Assistant, & Sequestered Stash.

CynicalDog sorry man I am really busy with work and grad school and have had little time for MTG. This seems to be my most popular deck so I should try to keep an eye on it.

Hammer of Nazahn could be a good fit, but it does get destroyed itself with our main win-con.
