Harsh Mercy


Each player chooses a creature type. Destroy all creatures that aren't of a type chosen this way. They can't be regenerated.

SufferFromEDHD Great suggestions, I had actually swapped out Generous Gift because I misread it as creature only removal, definitely putting that back in.

Swan Song got pulled because back when I was trimming cards to fit 100 almost all of my counters were noncreature, and I wanted to be able to deal with problematic creatures as well, just in case. Might slot it back in now that I've got dealt with that problem. Lofty Denial possibly the option to swap out.

The walls are good options, might take out Thermo-Alchemist and Electrostatic Field for them. Bit worried about how few red cards are the deck though.

Harsh Mercy while most likely keeping my blockers alive, also has a decent possibility of not dealing with the problem of my opponents board as well. I'll give it some thought though.

Also this is all theory, I actually haven't even put the deck together on paper yet. Once I've played it for a bit I'll have to do some tuning.

Thanks for the suggestions, if you have any more let me know.

Harsh Mercy! Tech! I would cut Blasphemous Act or Vanquish the Horde because these destroy your creatures. The rest of your removal is one sided.

Big fan of underrepresented tribes. This is a solid list.

Harsh Mercy is a tribal Wrath of God

Radiant Destiny > Day of Destiny

Maybe Rally the Ranks too.

Mutavault the best samurai land in the game!

Rebuff the Wicked this is a permanent heavy list. This card would do serious work.

Your land count makes me nervous, do you ever have any issues with mana?

Also Coastal Piracy is a strict upgrade over Phyrexian Arena / Tocasia's Welcome. All That Glitters and Stoneforge Masterwork can allow for an easy one shot with your commander and gain a ton of life in the process. No Mercy is also a great card for an Alela deck. Harsh Mercy is a one sided board wipe most of the time. The Meathook Massacre can also sometimes be one sided, and will double as a finisher if you kill enough of your own creatures.

Would also highly recommend Anointed Procession and Mondrak, Glory Dominus.

Dooooope! I too enjoy playing old/bad commanders.

Harsh Mercy tribal removal.

Cavern of Souls best tribal land.

Path of Ancestry solid tribal land.

Vesuva double up on that Griffin Canyon.

Rebuff the Wicked a mono white staple.

I know that this is a WIP, but there are a few issues. Archangel Avacyn  Flip technically has a color identity and isn't legal in this deck. Same problem with Sigarda, Bruna, Razia and a handful of others. There are also some cards that are included twice.

If you want this deck to be playable, Giada, Font of Hope is probably your best bet for the commander. Sephara, Sky's Blade is another option. Morophon, the Boundless is a five color option, though that means the manabase will get pretty expensive. If you don't care about this deck being terribly competitive, and your playgroup is cool with it, then you could change the format of this deck to Commander: Rule 0 and run Serra the Benevolent anyway. If anyone isn't okay with that, then just swap her for Giada or Avacyn or someone. Easy. Just be sure to ask beforehand. The only issue with Serra as commander is her ultimate ability being immune to interaction. Promise not to use it and most people should be fine with it.

You'll probably want to look at cards like War Room, Bonders' Enclave and Vanquisher's Banner as sources of card draw, as well. Other cards that work really well with the angels tribal theme are Bishop of Wings, Rally of Wings, Resplendent Angel if you focus on a lifegain theme, and Harsh Mercy as a "board wipe but not for me".

Art wise, Angel of Flight Alabaster, Linvala, Keeper of Silence and Lyra Dawnbringer (who's getting a new full art treatment in Dominaria Remastered!) are some of my favorites.
