Armageddon

Sorcery

Destroy all lands.

Epicurus on Rebel Taxes

Not sure if this deck maybe should be tagged as Casual rather than Legacy, and I say that because it's the type of deck that I usually build. It's a very interesting kitchen table type of deck, but certainly won't compete with Legacy decks.

And another reason I brought it up is because I would suggest adding Maskwood Nexus, which certainly helps the deck, but also wouldn't even usually be good in Modern, much less Legacy.

Either way, Aether Vial would also be a decent card to include. Also, with the tax stuff and Training Grounds, Armageddon would be awesome. Especially if you did get an AEther Vial in there.

Niko9 on Land Hate as a Defensive …

Grubbernaut is very right. The most effective use of this strategy in EDH is probably stacks, something like Winter Orb or Thalia, Heretic Cathar that just makes players not use their lands, but I don't know. Honestly, I don't get all the hate for land destruction, but it definitely exists : ) In casual at least. The cost efficiency for land vs creature removal is not really there. Stone Rain compared to Tragic Slip is like a birthday balloon vs a space shuttle, they sure both go up, but it's a kinda situation : ) And mass land destruction like Armageddon will slow down your combos too unless you have a way around, so it's all a bit hard.

But again, where there is a will, there is a lot of cards to maybe make it work with. It sounds like a great idea to me, and definitely worth a dive down the rabbit hole of available cards : )

Delightful. If you had a Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, what would you cut for it?

Also: The lone Counterspell kind of sticks out. Yeah, there is Commit / Memory but you will probably not counter something for 4CMC. So that solitary counter doesn't do much exept two meager damage off the top. Force of Will would be perfect in that spot but it is probably way out of budget (Force of Negation too, even though it gets reprinted in Double Masters 2022). So I would propose cutting that counterspell entirely and replace it with something fun. A card you could replace it with that gets surprisingly little attention and is heavily underplayed in Yuriko is Mana Severance. This card is amazing in any Yuriko late game. Right now you average CMC with lands is around 2.2 or so. Without lands it's 3.38, that's a 50 % damage increase for your Yuriko triggers (without top deck manipulation) and you will dig through your library much faster. You should be careful with it, obviously. If you suspect an Armageddon this will probably be one of the cards you'd discard.

Panoptic Mirror. On one hand, it's potentially extremely powerful, potentially extremely unfun, and can go into any deck. On the other hand, it does nothing by itself, it needs other, truly powerful and/or unfun cards to be problematic, and it has no self-protection or resistance to removal.

It might become a staple more or less immediately, but no worse than Sol Ring. I suspect that more people will use it for random jank than for Time Stretching or Armageddoning every turn. It's not like there's a shortage of multi- or infinite-turn combos.

sean360 Thanks for the helpful update! I definitely found it running out of gas earlier as well, which is why I added five more sources of card draw in the recent update, and swapped out some subpar ones I had for better ones. I'll definitely update how I see it working. I'm also considering an incredibly controversial card in the form of Armageddon. Some might be opposed to this, but I feel like with the imbalance green and blue have in terms of ramp and raw, white should be able to use the tools we have to keep up and eliminate unfair advantages. I think we can more quickly rebuild with our curve, and there is of course the nasty combo with Cosmic Intervention to consider. I'm a little conflicted about dipping into the dark side of the social contract, but it still seems fair to me. Nonetheless, I am undecided.

Run cards like Armageddon and tell the table every turn you'll wipe everyone's lands unless you're attacked. If they don't make good on those demands you play it which will definitely get them attacking you for sure.

Guerric on Avacyn, Angel of Boardwipes

Even if Avacyn isn't out, Cosmic Intervention works great with Mass Land Destruction. Just play it and the play Armageddon,or play it in response to Armageddon. People may scoop and you might lose some friends, but if you stick with Avacyn it's the most powerful way to go. Otherwise, switch to Giada with Avacyn as the in-deck commander. It all depends on what you want to do!
