Genesis Wave deck utilizing the New Phyrexia cards: Myr Superion , Priest of Urabrask , and Gitaxian Probe .

EsperEDH says...


You need things like Overgrown Battlement and Oracle of Mul Daya in here. Some of the best Genesis Wave cards there are with Joraga Treespeaker out there.

Drop Fireball . X Spells are no-go in Genesis Wave decks. Instead run Slagstorm or Pyroclasm , they clear the board like you want Fireball to, but you can hit them off Genesis Wave . With the addition of Overgrown Battlement s in there, it, birds, and treespeakers can hit superions easy. Add 2 more Myr Superion if you decide to make that chance.

I'm liking Gitaxian Probe . Allows you to Peek and draw a card to see if the way is clear for your wave.

Also if you can afford them, can't believe I forgot to mention Lotus Cobra . Also amazing to get out the superion, and allows multiple Genesis Wave in one turn, and sooner.

You can't hit sorceries/instants with Genesis Wave Esper... please read the card again.

However, Slagstorm is good for mass wipe, while card:Red Sun's Zenith is good for stopping stupid shenanigans.

Can you imagine how insane Genesis Wave would be if all cards it hit could be played as cast spells?? Whoa.

I might actually play some green in that case...

I've waved twice when playtesting, you just have to have two waves in your hand. That's why i was thinking of Priest of Urabrask . card:Red Sun's Zenith seems like a good sideboard card, but I'm not too experienced with sideboarding, so don't hold me to that statement.

I usually only wave twice when someone doesn't see me wave the first time...

too bad...i like stoneforge. Im okay with Jace being banned though, there's no way im ever gonna get a playset.

Lol, Well, I didn't like either of them, as I have a playset of beleren and disliked JTMS.

Only 2 Overgrown Battlement and no tutors? What's the point? With this card, it's a playset or nothing. Trust me.

Drop them for more lands. Even mana-ramp needs at least 21. Lotus Cobra decks usually pack 23 at the minimum to keep his ability going.
