How to Deny Graveyard Tactics?!

Standard Deck Help forum

Posted on Feb. 14, 2020, 7:27 a.m. by Vaygon


I'm looking to build a deck that can effectively shut down any & all graveyard interactions. I thoroughly dislike the tactic & wish to shut it down, pronto! What cards are best to achieve this goal?

I was running a few copies of Grafdigger's Cage in my decks. But this dosen't stop my opponent's from bringing creatures/spells back from their graveyards. Any suggestions? Or is it not possible to completely lock out graveyard interactions in current Standard?

But the cage does do that creatures cant enter the battlefield from the graveyard

Leyline of the Void in Standard. Something goes in the graveyard, it doesn't get a death trigger, enter the graveyard trigger, and isn't there at all because of the replacement effect.

Bojuka Bog, lol

Seriously though, exile effects on the graveyard as a whole are a dime a dozen. If that's something you are looking for, it works.

Well, depending on the format. I don't think there are any in Standard right now.

Edit - missed the Standard part at the bottom. Moving your thread to the correct help forum now.

shadow63 Grafdigger's Cage wouldn't stop me from using Forever Young to remove creatures from my graveyard and get them back into hand for casting.

However there is potential for a mono or even deck using cards like Erebos's Intervention, Tymaret, Chosen from Death, Elspeth's Nightmare, little Ashiok, Agonizing Remorse, the Cage, and/or Kunoros, Hound of Athreos to put a significant hurting on an opponent's graveyard interaction
