Hallowed Moonlight


Until end of turn, if a creature would enter the battlefield and it wasn't cast, exile it instead.

Draw a card.

This looks pretty solid to me! If you have any cascade decks in your meta I would suggest Silence or Hallowed Moonlight as sideboard tech. +1 and welcome back to magic!

I think because in my decklist in particular i'm running Shard Volley the mana would probably be relevant and come up a lot. Silence in general just seems like a really odd card; ive known about it for years now but I have never really been sure how to use it outside of Isochron Scepter abuse in Turbofog decks shotgunning the spell at the beginning of the opponents upkeep... I've never used it strategically before.

can you think of another relevant scenario silence could be used in burn? or is it pretty much a cascade hate card? because that's something about Hallowed Moonlight that kinda bugged me.

Does Silence work as a good sideboard card in Burn?

Im looking to bring "Life Total Control" ....Burn... to my LGS looking to capitalize on people running The One Ring but Cascade decks are in my opinion "The Deck to Beat."

I saw an Aspiring Spike Video on ChannelFireball and he was using it as a sideboard card for that matchup over Hallowed Moonlight which is what I usually ty to use. But I haven't seen anyone else using it on MTGTop8 or anything that I've noticed... admittedly the Video I watch was over a year old at this point.

It seems like a neat card... Does anyone have any insight or tips on using Silence? or have an alternative? or perhaps a different mindset altogether?

Yeah the deck looks pretty strong and fine tuned from my perspective.

I recently picked up a few copies of Hallowed Moonlight to compliment Rest in Peace to help combat reanimmator but your list still seems like it could still win.

I throw my hat into the ring in favor of Test of Talents as well. Hallowed Moonlight is more situationally dependent upon what you might face in your specific playgroup—one of those ‘If you need it, you’ll know it’ types of cards.

Yeah I'd definitely opt for Test of Talents then. It will really hurt creativity, where as Hallowed Moonlight is only going to slow them down a little (Test of Talents should buy you more that enough turns to make up for Hallowed Moonlight drawing a card).

Added to that, Test of Talents will probably fare better against most other combo decks, which will help you avoid having to race those matchups.

I know you want to judge these in a vacuum, but I don't think that's a fair way to figure out which is the better option to run. Sideboards are quite literally dependent on the local meta, as well as the deck their for - some sideboard cards are much stronger in certain decks than others.

So, some questions:

  • What deck is this for?

  • What problem matchups are more common to show up in your meta? What does the rest of your sideboard look like and do you already have answers for some of these decks?

  • Are you opposed to other cards that might solve your problems better? If so, why? Do you have budget restrictions here?

Personally, trying to judge this in a shell where I have no idea what you're playing, these cards feel alright for some matchups, and unideal for others:

  • against Living End neither card feels particularly helpful. LE has access to both Grief and Force of Negation, so there's pretty high odds you're going to get your card taken from your hand if you're deck is a pro-active one (and if you're playing a control deck, there's just better tools available).

  • against Indomitable Creativity both options seem fine, though Test of Talents feels better.

  • against reanimation strategies neither feels ideal. You kindof want to turn-off the graveyard, and these cards just don't do that - they give the opponent too many ways to get back into the game after you've cast the spell.

  • Hallowed Moonlight does seem nice for the tutor effects, but as far as undying/persist or infinite-creature-combos this feels only minimally helpful, in that it's just putting a Band-Aid over a severed limb.

Oh, this question was strictly aimed at them being sideboard options. Both options are a little too narrow for me to be considered for the main (nothing feels worse than drawing a dead card).

Of all the "meta decks" in modern, Test of Talents is good against:

Cascade like Living End
Indomitable Creativity
most reanimation strategies

while being relevant as a hate card against their instant/sorcery sideboard options or playsets of just general problem instant/sorceries (mill, conterspell decks, etc.)

On the other hand, Hallowed Moonlight is good against:

Cascade like Living End since they all cheat in creatures as an end result
Indomitable Creativity
most reanimation strategies
any creature "tutor" cards like Finale of Devastation, Chord of Calling, Eldritch Evolution, Collected Company
undying/persist cards
any "infinite" creature combos for the turn at least

so, as you can see, there's quite a bit of overlap between the two cards. It almost comes down to if you want the tempo of the cantrip or want to fully remove their threat. Hallowed Moonlight's replacement effect of exiling also neuters any kind of setup which is worth mentioning as well, since that can often buy enough time to win that they don't get to cast a second copy anyway.

There's a few pros and cons to each option, and I am really struggling to determine which is "better" in a vacuum.
