Justice Strike Discussion

Polaris on Pithing needle against Phyexian Obliterator

3 months ago

There are a few ways around Phyrexian Obliterator 's ability, though Pithing Needle is not one. You could counter with something like Voidslime , though you'll have to do this every time. You could also remove the ability with a card like Kenrith's Transformation or Frogify .

Of course, the best way is to use Justice Strike and see if that makes them concede.

OmniDreamer on Casual Velomachus

3 months ago

I played a 3 player game with this list just to get a feel for the commander which means some of this should be taken with a grain of salt because I don't know how some of the cards would work in a different situation with only one game to base my experience on.

Out of several attack triggers from Velomachus, most of the free spells were a bit underwhelming. I think one I got Mana Geyser as my free spell and had nothing to spend the mana on during combat. I did manage to win the game, but primarily because one opponent had trouble getting lands early on and fell behind, and also because that player cast Song of the Dryads on the other opponent's Golos, Tireless Pilgrim which shut him down from getting lots of card advantage from activating his ability. Justice Strike unfortunately didn't feel useful, most of the creatures I wanted to kill had more toughness than power. Probably replace it with Path to Exile .

Myth Realized helped a lot, so did Boros Charm and Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion . MVP though had to be Valakut Exploration . I got a lot of value from it.

I felt like the deck could use another spell or two that give extra combats. That would be a great thing to hit off of Velomachus triggers. Akroma's Will would also be a nice thing to hit off of his trigger. Also you have a lot of token producing cards, but nothing really to pump the team. Maybe consider Cathars' Crusade , Shared Animosity , Intangible Virtue , or Balefire Liege to make your tokens more threatening. Another neat card that can also be used politically to buff an opponent's attacker is Duelist's Heritage .

Other cards to consider:

9-lives on Aikido of the Inward Eye and Mirror Flame

Got rid of Doublecast for Disallow , considering that most of my instants and sorceries are not above 2 CMC. Got rid of The Akroan War and Rollick of Abandon considering that I'll probably never draw both at the same time, and I could use multiple cheaper spells like Justice Strike for cheaper than the CMC, but I'd like to know the statistics behind the amount of P/T every creature I could possibly face since I need for them to have less T than P.

PurePwnage, I second your idea for Stormchaser -> sprite dragon. They are both 2 mana flying haste, but sprite dragon has the better form of prowess because it gets counters. I think the only reason to play Stormchaser is if you want the 3 toughness to play around somthing like Justice Strike or make it harder to remove.

We all know EDH is a format with a lot of massive threats, so what're all of you people's favorite answers? I'm talking Path, Rift, Wrath... all those sorts of things. My personal favorite is Justice Strike: super cheap removal in Boros? Um, yes please!

Omniscience_is_life on What are your favorite underused, …

I really like Vizier of Deferment as a way to keep a huge pumped-up creature off your face for a turn, and it can block a second as well. Traveler's Amulet is a good turn-one play in 3+ color decks, in my opinion, just decent very cheap syncing Justice Strike is more often than not 2 mana removal, which is great in Boros/budget decks Cacophodon enables ALL OF the combos. Love that card.

Great idea, flash backs to Reflect Bounder and Magic Cylinder in Yugioh. XD

i would possibly swap the numbers around on Justice Strike and Chandra's Triumph . Or maybe even remove the whole Chandra's Triumph + Chandra, Acolyte of Flame package and replace it with something else. Fry

Heliod, Sun-Crowned is very good!! Try and add another one of them if you can. Perhaps try and get the new Daxos, Blessed by the Sun instead of Impassioned Orator .

For removal, the Lava Coil is good, but also try and get Banishing Light or Dreadful Apathy instead of Pacifism - they just better value.

And look for the shock lands rather than the guilgates. You are semi-aggro so want to be fast.

Is this for Best of 1, then you can even think of increasing the number of cards up to 75 (main + side) all in one, as they do that. If BO3, then no.

What is your plan for an opponent that goes wide (lots of creatures)?? You maybe need some sort of mini board-wipe - just to stabilise the board a bit... The new Shatter the Sky is an option, Solar Blaze , Flame Sweep .

Tibalt, Rakish Instigator perhaps for the mirror lifegain deck.
