Bontu's Last Reckoning


Destroy all creatures. Lands you control don't untap during your next untap step.

Bontu's Last Reckoning Discussion

Skyler1776 on Nicol Bolas, the Original

Alright. After looking through, I have a few ideas. 1. Instead of stealing other’s artifacts for 4+ mana, perhaps running things like Abrade , Artifact Possession , Copy Artifact , or Bedevil to either create copies of other’s artifacts, or destroy them with more options than what you currently have.

  1. Mana fixing Drowned Catacomb , Dragonskull Summit , Watery Grave , Command Tower , Arcane Signet , Grixis Obelisk, and Grixis Panorama would all help in your ability to cast Bolas on curve.
  2. Holding off the other players.

Wrath of God , Vraska's Contempt , Bontu's Last Reckoning , Cast Down , and Cavalier of Night all keep the board clear while you set up for the victory!

  1. Creatures. Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp , Wall of Stone , Norritt , Chainwhip Cyclops , and Vraska's Finisher are all bad cards. I suggest cards like Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, Sheoldred, Whispering One , Notion Thief , Archfiend of Depravity , and Massacre Girl could be more beneficial than the current ones you have.

I recommend having a 3:1 spit of Dead of Winter and Bontu's Last Reckoning , or at least a 2:2 split. Dead of Winter scales to kill big creatures in the late game and is able to kill pretty much anything they play before turn 3 without the huge downside that Reckoning has. Plus, playing snow lands lets you play some Frostwalk Bastion as a budget Mutavault ; manlands are relatively important in 8-Rack to help increase the clock and Bastion can even buy you an extra turn when it blocks.

Next: 8-Rack's goal is to get each player to topdeck mode as fast as possible, and while Necrogen Mists is a really good value card, its higher cmc means it doesn't get them to start topdecking as fast as a normal discard spell does and it literally does nothing to the opponent once you get into topdeck mode. Liliana's Caress is in the same boat since it doesn't make them discard.

I recommend cutting the Necrogen Mists and the Liliana's Caress es to play 4 Blackmail , 2 Funeral Charm , and 2 Stupor . Funeral Charm can make them discard cards as well as remove early game creatures while Blackmail and Stupor are both decent discard spells. They are less expensive than Necro Mists/Lili's Caress, too.

Wow lots of suggestions here.

Mj3913: Kindred Dominance is a fantastic boardwipe in just about any tribal deck, but in this case I actually run a few non-shade cards (including the commander) so I think I'll stick to Disk and Bontu's Last Reckoning

TypicalTimmy: Ooooo Vilis the card is busted especially with K'rrik, the only thing is he doesn't ramp and he doesn't kill, soooo. I'll definitely try him though...

Suns_Champion: In the original deck, I was running Shade's Form because It's funny and ya know...shades! The card doesn't seem necessary but now with K'rrik it may be nice to have, I'll have to test it!

zerowner, Bontu's Last Reckoning is a great board wipe early game, and cascade is there for benefit when i need to gain field advantage, but not really the center of the deck, the idea is to keep tapping and untapping creatures for abilities to activate, also i have my creatures able to tap for mana along with some artifacts, and if i tap artifacts or creatures to play a card and then cascade into it it wouldnt be an issue, neither would playing it from hand, Last One Standing is a gample in an edh game because you can give one person advantage and that one person may not be you

I'm glad you like my list and it does indeed work quite well! I'm also a budget legacy Player and my first deck to get into the format was manaless dredge too! If you want to upgrade this list, I'd first suggest adding two more Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . Furthermore you could include Liliana of the Veil if you are able to afford it (cut Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage for it). The Sinkhole s could be cut for a Playset Thoughtseize and four Wasteland added to the landbase.

Im terms of the sideboard i'd cut Bontu's Last Reckoning for Toxic Deluge :)

I hope this helps you a little bit!

I think it also depends if you play duels or multiplayer against a lot of opponents. Bontu's Last Reckoning is great value if you lose 3 cards (2 creatures plus Reckoning), but you get rid of like 6 opponent creatures, otherwise it seems less useful. Also you have to basically skip your next turn which is scary. Have you considered High Priest of Penance , Vizkopa Guildmage , Blind Obedience , or Gonti's Machinations ?

Trinket Mage can grab you several good artifacts in your deck, maybe that?

Bontu's Last Reckoning is pretty bad in EDH imo, especially when you might accidentally cascade into it. Maybe Last One Standing instead?
