Cataclysm

Sorcery

Each player chooses from among the permanents he or she controls an artifact, a creature, an enchantment, and a land, then sacrifices the rest.

AcidicArisato on Principle of Control

For stealing your opponents' cards, I'd recommend Xanathar, Guild Kingpin as a back-up Sen. Celestial Dawn is also an auto-include in Sen decks.

If you want stax pieces, Drannith Magistrate, Nevermore, and Wash Away are great ways to stop your opponent from casting their commanders.

Aura of Silence is handy for taking care of pesky enchantments and can slow down their plans. Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver and Bojuka Bog are handy pieces of graveyard hate, with the latter being a free-roll in your deck.

Scheming Symmetry is HILARIOUS with Aven Mindcensor and Opposition Agent. Leonin Arbiter also goes nicely with it.

Fatespinner is nasty and can functionally lock opponents out of combat. Rhystic Study is an auto-include in these types of decks.

=============

In terms of win-cons, you could go with the Mindcrank combo: Mindcrack + Duskmantle Guildmage. Use Ghoulcaller's Bell to start the process without damage. Syr Konrad, the Grim is also good for redundancy.

There's also any number of combos involving Laboratory Maniac, Thassa's Oracle, and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries. Use Demonic Consultation on your upkeep and name a card not in your deck to win on your draw step.

If you have a high enough density of creatures, Mortal Combat is a very simple way to win. With enough artifacts, Mechanized Production can be a free-roll. Revel in Riches is a very simple way of creating mana, with the upside of occasionally winning you the game (also pairs well with Spell Swindle.) Felidar Sovereign is also a hilarious.

=============

If you're looking to make opponents struggle by dismantling their pieces, you should absolutely have pieces like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Vanishing Verse, and maybe even Generous Gift in addition to boardwipes like Farewell, Tragic Arrogance, Cataclysm, and Wrath of God.

KBK7101 It’s a fun one to run, that’s for sure! There has definitely been a couple “that’s rough buddy” games where the first Velomachus trigger pulled Cataclysm or Armageddon!

HelixSnapHelix on Ruhan of the Fomori

I used to play Ruhan in duel commander a ton, so maybe some of what I suggest isn't translatable to regular edh,but some I know would be great additions:

I'd used Cryptic Command as an obvious great card as it is, but more specifically to tap the opponent's creatures that you're forced to attack. Either to save Ruhan or to swing big.

The Royal Scions was a great walker that worked well with the deck and Ruhan.

Clout of the Dominus is so sick with Ruhan.

Divine Reckoning obviously.

Minamo, School at Water's Edge to untap Ruhan as needed (saved my butt to block when I absolutely needed it multiple times).

On the Cataclysmic Gearhulk route, you could take it a step further and just play Cataclysm. Almost guaranteed to come out on top unless you're playing against a lot of combo.

If they didn't want me to use Rhys the Redeemed, Terastodon, and Mirrorpool to destroy their lands, my opponents shouldn't have Cataclysmed and Cataclysmic Gearhulked in back-to-back casual commander games played in a literal Arbys.

Hey kdglenny, after all this time, I finally picked up the FTV version of Cataclysm!! ;)

StopShot on Wrath (Color-Shifted Boardwipe) - Contains …

1 year ago

One of the cards spoiled in Modern Horizons 2 inspired me to create a custom card that would be the color-shifted version of it. The card on the left is an official spoiler and the card on the right is my custom card inspired by it.

Thought Process Designing the Card

Sadly the card text isn't as neatly condensed as the other card. To have the card be white I had to change how the spot removal behaves, as white doesn't do spot removal unless there's a sort of "balanced" effect.

This meant I had to change the text accordingly, however this means I could no longer use the "Overload" keyword as it wouldn't make any sense. In this case I'd have to consider using a different keyword. I considered Channel, but Channel is an activated ability, not an alternate casting of the spell, which would make the effect seem too much like a Supreme Verdict due to being harder to counter an ability.

Evoke seemed like the easiest way to go about this, but that meant I'd have to make the spell a permanent of sorts. Because it was a permanent it also might have additional problems with being blinked or removed later, so I gave it shroud to mitigate this.

How the Card Works

When casting Wrath normally, all players remove their strongest creatures, kind of like a group edict similar to white cards like: Tariff , Renounce the Guilds , Slaughter the Strong , etc.

But when Wrath is evoked it is sacrificed upon entering the battlefield. This causes its "Leave the Battlefield" effect to trigger first by putting it on the stack last. This creates a Cataclysm type effect for only creatures, meaning each player ends up with only one creature, but since the "Enter the Battlefield" effect triggers next, that means the remaining creature each player controls is now the strongest creature which ends up also getting destroyed, effectively creating the Wrath of God / Damnation type effect.

Feedback?

I'm interested on hearing feedback about my custom card idea and if it could be improved, (specifically reducing the amount of text on the card).

I think one solution would be to name the card "Judgment" based off of Day of Judgment . This would mean I could remove the "creatures destroyed this way can't be regenerated," clause as it appears twice and would help to free up much more space.

The card text looks much more pleasing, but the effect might be abusable with creatures that can regenerate.

Have you considered Fall of the Thran , Cataclysm , Restore Balance , Magus of the Balance , and/or Storm Cauldron ? All are fun stax/land destruction pieces.

Constant Mists and Glacial Chasm might be good stall pieces until you can get a win-con going.

+1, cool deck. Reminds me of my Jund take on land destruction:

iplayBANJO on Elenda - Life After Death

Some budget suggestions:

Phyrexian Arena is apparently expensive, and also not that necessary. Pitiless Plunderer fills the role of producing colored mana for sacrificing creatures as long as you have a free sacrifice outlet.

Butcher of Malakir is a cheaper alternative to Dictate of Erebos and could be preferred because it is a creature that you can reanimate from the graveyard.

Wrath of God is Damnation , but much cheaper.

Kindred Dominance is maybe the best board wipe for tribal decks, even though it has a high mana cost. But you might not care about saving all of your vampires, just Elenda. Tragic Arrogance , Cataclysm , or Single Combat might fill that role for you.
