Deafening Silence Discussion

Dango on Anafenza "Raz-Bear-y" Jam

Noobzaurs thank you for your response. I also realized shortly after my post that Deafening Silence doesn't necessarily stop consultation oracle lines while Ethersworn Canonist does which is really something to consider in this new shift in the metagame.

KayneMarco: Dango sums up my opinion on Kambal, Consul of Allocation and Kunoros, Hound of Athreos perfectly. They either interfere with us as well or just dont do enough in the meta right now.

Dango: I dont run Deafening Silence for the same reason i cut Null Rod and Stony Silence. While you technically can play around both of these effects on the combo turn, it adds additional requirements in both number of creatures in play required as sacrifice fodder for tutors and in the mana required to successfully combo (since you need to commit mana to removing your own stax).

chris.r.constans: You are absolutely right about Hushbringer, it's great redundancy for hulk hate in case our commander gets removed but also works well as a hate piece versus Thassa's Oracle consult combos,Dockside Extortionist bounce combos, and of course protection from Gilded Drake. At 2 mana I think its a must include in this meta. Hushwing Gryff however I think is more meta dependent, if you see a lot of ETB based wins in your meta then I would slam it in, but I dont think the generic meta is in a place right now where I would include it in my core list.

somedumbjerk: As you noted Hushbringer doesn't really stop our combo since it can be sac'd to Razaketh, the Foulblooded before it would become a problem, and the same is true for the other hate bears the deck runs that would otherwise prohibit us from being able to combo. As for Living Plane, it is far to slow and unreliable to set up in cEDH metas.

Thanks for the comments everyone! :D

Sorry for taking so long to respond.

The deck is updated as of 03/22/2020! Just a reminder that I'm not giving up on this list, as I can't seem to find ANY competitive updated decklists for Karador out there! I will continue to tune and upgrade it for as long as I play magic.

In terms of recent sets, Veil of Summer and Deafening Silence are great hate pieces that help you contend with other cEDH decks!

Hey, consider more cards for the early game to slow down the game for your opponents and buy you more turns to setup for Avacyn?

Once you get Avacyn out then consider more cards that can make her better?

Geode Golem is a creature who can hold equipment well and is a way to cheat cast Avacyn onto the battlefield.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Day of Judgment
  • Leyline of Sanctity
  • Otherworldly Journey
  • Overwhelming Splendor
  • Whispersilk Cloak
  • Staff of Nin
  • Angelic Arbiter

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice to see Luminarch Ascension with a pillowfort strategy :)

Consider expanding the pillowfort?

These cards slow down the game which you can benefit from since Boros is not as fast as other color combinations. Turn one Deafening with as many creatures as you have can give you an advantage. Many enchantments here are high CMC cards which means most likely you will not be casting more than one a turn. Boros can have a difficult time stopping opponents combos which these cards can help with because many combos involve casting cards.

Other cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Boros Guildgate
  • Scabland
  • Stone Quarry
  • Rampaging Ferocidon: not good with the Aureila + Helm combo or Ascension, etc.
  • Seraph of the Sword
  • Everdawn Champion
  • Serra's Blessing
  • Baird, Steward of Argive
  • Damping Sphere
  • Leyline of Sanctity
  • Warmonger Hellkite

Good luck with your deck.

When you already play Exquisite Blood you should consider to play the Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond-combo.

If you want to take this deck to the next level, you should consider the following cards:

Also, I had Flicker of Fate used against me at a tournament once, damn good flicker. As I said before, Azorius things like Capture Sphere would be good. Crystal Shard might also be good for removal if your opponent taps all their mana sources.

Other suggestions: Rule of Law Silence Deafening Silence The Original One Forced Fruition (To make your opponents not want to cast spells.)

Upyron on Black/White Token Deck

have you tried Spark Harvest Anguished Unmaking or you might like Rule of Law Deafening Silence i think will be fine in this deck some little improving about some cards cost/performance
