Descend upon the Sinful Discussion

seshiro_of_the_orochi on More Cow Bell Borca

This is so awesome. I love Uba Mask in this deck. I'm not sure if Bell Borca also sees cards that were exiled with him on board, but if so, Descend upon the Sinful might be a great board wipe here. Also, how about Sudden Disappearance?

So other than the Giants themselves, the last two areas to look at are removal and utility. Depending on how much Brion tech you want to include, you are probably going to have to skimp on one of these two areas.

Removal is tricky in EDH. You don't want too little or too much. You're running White, so you can destroy anything you want--which is nice.

I would recommend two or three board wipes minimum and at least and five or six cards that can take care of artifacts and enchantments. Creature removal is great for aggro decks but the Threaten cards can take care of that for the most part.

You're running Blasphemous Act, which is one of the best wraths. I'd still recommend one or two more board wipes though. I like Mizzium Mortars a lot but it doesn't quite count.

I have Sublime Exhalation - Planar Outburst - Phyrexian Rebirth - Cleansing Nova - Planar Cleansing - Fumigate - Divine Reckoning - Rout

If you can find a Wrath of God or Day of Judgment, the one-mana difference is actually huge. Definitely add Cleansing Nova in my opinion. Sublime Exhalation is probably the next-best one.

Hallowed Burial and Descend upon the Sinful are neat due to not sending things to the graveyard and getting through Indestructible. I think I have some of the latter.

One tactic you can do is sandbag your big creatures and wait for your opponents to commit to the board, then wrath and start playing your giants. If you like the sound of that, run five wraths or something like that. It's only a few more mana to kill EVERY creature.

I know you have some Wear / Tears. I'd add one for sure.

I have a bunch of Crush Contrabands, which are great. I'd highly recommend it.

Things like Oblivion Ring and Banishing Light are fantastic on a budget. I think I have both.

Generous Gift is stellar. I don't have any but it's getting reprinted soon and may be cheap.

I have a Pyrohemia on hand. Might be interesting with all your huge giants. Maybe not though.

I have a Fight to the Death. Might be interesting. Same with my Response / Resurgence.

Titan's Revenge is giant-tribal-y. From Morningtide, and should be somewhat reliable for winning the Clash. More gimmicky than good though.

Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are the gold standards for creature removal though. No reason to not run them if you have them. Regrettable, I have none for trade. Path just got reprinted though for what it's worth. I have a boatload of all the budget replacements for them, like Oust, Condemn, Oblation, etc.

Something like Comet Storm might be an interesting include. It can function as removal or win the game outright out of nowhere. I have none on hand but it keeps getting reprinted.

There are tons and tons of removal cards out there.


I would cut Crush Underfoot unless you're married to the flavor. It's pretty bad. Any removal not already mentioned here I would cut. It's all pretty weak and you're gonna need the slots.

StopShot on Should I not run Negan, …

8 months ago

Hello, I don't watch the Walking Dead and I honestly think the Secret Lair: Walking Dead product is a very bad decision on Wizard's part. That being said, one of the cards being released provides a silver bullet to a problem I often encounter in certain games.

Card: Negan, The Cold-Blooded

I'm not planning to make him my commander, but I want to use him in the 99, because he is practically the best removal spell ever made when dealing with creatures that have both hexproof and indestructible.

Seriously, the next best cards are Council's Judgment, Crackling Doom Soul Shatter, Mythos of Snapdax, Slaughter the Strong, etc. These cards all have conditions where they can fail to remove the creature I want gone, but Negan has none of those same problems making him the most effective piece of spot removal printed to this date, effectively costing only 4 mana given the treasure token.

I know I could just run other sure-fire answers like Descend upon the Sinful or Apocalypse instead, but those cards can massively hurt my side of the table too which makes them not worth running and they can also make the rest of the table unhappy with me for playing exile-wipes.

Another thing to note is that Negan is a creature which means I can make him uncounterable with a Cavern of Souls rather than Boseiju, Who Shelters All, a land that's much more inflexible to play with than Cavern. I can also reanimate his effect too with Volrath's Stronghold and other reanimation effects which would make him so good at keeping commanders with hexproof and indestructible repeatedly in check unlike a lot of the other one-time use instants and sorceries I have available.

The only issue is I think most play-groups will tell me that their play group will have this card banned given all the controversy surrounding it which is a shame. My question is, do you think its worth the trouble acquiring this card? If I'm going to spend a lot of money to buy a single only for most people to tell me I can't play it then I don't want to spend that kind of money, but for now I'm unsure. Would you advise for or against buying it? Thanks!

Stew-Bi-Wan on Ghired & Ravnica's Overpopulation problems

Ghired is one of my favorite decks. Such fun to play. May I recommend Descend upon the Sinful, a great board wipe, that also has a chance to net you a lovely angel token.Also, Mouth is a great card making a token and potentially drawing you many cards. Finally God-Eternal Oketra is another source of really good tokens. Love the deck you got going.

criscofieldsforever on Tiger- Angel human deck

My comments are constructive criticism not trying to tear you down. There are way too many lands here (38 is the max typically) and no true ramp. Mana rocks and mono white ramp spells such as Land Tax, Tithe (two expensive cards) or Gift of Estates. Mana Rocks like Sol Ring, Marble Diamond and Gilded Lotus will help. You definitely need Board Wipes with Avacyn it is one-sided, Wrath of God, Mass Calcify, Cleansing Nova and Rout to name a few, side note Descend upon the Sinful is mostly horrible in your deck cause it wipes your board even with Avacyn out. For you Humans and Angels a great card you are missing is Herald of War reducing the cost of both after it attacks. King saproling mentioned a few reducers as well. Heraldic Banner is a good rock/ pump spell.

Lanzo493 on Angels of Armageddon

I love the idea. I think it needs some more divine judgment though. Sunblast Angel , Oblation , Austere Command , Hour of Revelation , Akroma's Vengeance , Descend upon the Sinful , Fumigate , End Hostilities , and of course Wrath of God and Day of Judgment . Ravnica at War could be good depending on your meta. While playing boardwipes just for flavor wouldn't be the best idea, it's also a strategic decision. Angels are slower tribe, so it's a good idea to put everybody else behind.

Outside of boardwipes, Akroma's Memorial spells death for all opponents, Herald's Horn is another cost reducer, and True Conviction is a powerful anthem due to the fact that most of your creatures are big and flying.
