Leyline of the Void Discussion

robcastpwnz on Nekusar’s Wheel of Fortune

4 days ago

Nice!! Nekusar was my first serious commander and I really enjoyed playing him. I have taken apart the deck for pieces to add to my other decks. I'll offer some of my ideas. I used to run Teferi's Puzzle Box and Phyrexian Tyranny as my major damage dealers. I think you could add a few more budget pseudo-wheel effects and here some of the cards I used to run because I never pulled the trigger on buying the OG Wheel: Khorvath's Fury , Magus of the Wheel , Commit / Memory , Whispering Madness and Echo of Eons . Unless your meta plays a lot of graveyard decks I would get rid of Leyline of the Void and Nihil Spellbomb . There are a few other cards that have Nekusar's ability stapled to them so they might be worth adding: Fate Unraveler , Underworld Dreams and Spiteful Visions . Price of Knowledge is a pretty vicious card if the game goes late and you can get a lot of cards in your opponents' hands. I'm not so sure you need Mindcrank , Jace, Wielder of Mysteries or Psychic Corrosion either. Unless you are going for a mill strategy you might be able to pull most of the mill cards and put things that work more with Nekusar.

But you can do whatever you like. I know that my friends called my deck "salty" and I would get targeted early because of how aggro my deck was. Nekusar paints a target on your back because he hits everyone for one of the most essential parts of playing Magic and it's very hard to get around his damage. Good luck with the deck!!

-1 Drown in the Loch , +1 Spell Pierce

With the existence of this new meta being formed, I believe more decks will maindeck Rest in Peace , Grafdigger's Cage , and Leyline of the Void . This will make Loch much less effective, and sometimes a dead card. I don't like dead cards.

Aiden_Phelps on Budget Dredge

I'm not sure what your stance is, but you may want to consider using proxies. You could also consider Manaless Dredge. It's cheaper and more efficient than this list. If neither of these options strikes your fancy, then I have some suggestions for your list. Take out the 4 Creeping Chill s. Replace 1 with another Hogaak, 1 with another Putrid Imp , and the other 2 with Flayer of the Hatebound . Flayer will be your main reanimation target for Dread Return and should close out the game if you reanimate it. A Dread Return package in the maindeck is certainly not ideal though. You should definitely be playing Cephalid Coliseum . It's an uncounterable "Dredge 15ish" that you can usually play around turn 2-3. I'd consider taking out your fetches for these. Those are all the changes I'd make to the maindeck and the next changes are all for the sideboard. Chain of Vapor is what I personally run to deal with permanent-based graveyard hate but that usually fits better into the more explosive lists that can run Lion's Eye Diamond . Therefore, you'd probably have more success running 2 Serenity and 2 Nature's Claim . 4 Leyline of the Void is always a good idea. 3 Silent Gravestone in the sideboard doesn't hinder your plans as long as you don't run it alongside Dread Return and it protects your graveyard against Surgical Extraction . Playing 3 Lotus Petal in your sideboard can help your deck be more explosive when it needs to be. Lastly, 1 Ashen Rider should be in the sideboard as a reanimation target if you suspect that your opponent may have or may board in an Ensnaring Bridge to stop your zombie army. Once again, I'd reccommend that you either proxy the LEDs or play Manaless Dredge (both of which are better options than playing this list), but if that's not an attainable goal, then making these changes to the deck should be the best thing you can do for the deck. I hope this helped you out! Have a wonderful day!

jp9506 on Standard Mono-black Devotion

I am also playing around with this idea, here's some additional cards to consider:

Deathless Knight - +4 Devotion, recursive threat with lifegain from Ayara, First of Locthwain and/or Dread Presence

Yarok's Fenlurker - I feel like there really needs to be a 2-drop, if we get some sort of Gifted Aetherborn like card, it'll likely slot in here instead.

Bolas's Citadel - +3 Devotion and free-casting

Castle Locthwain - Feels like an auto-include, we really need the extra card draw

Kaya's Ghostform - Attach to Gary and then sac Gary to Ayara, First of Locthwain to lose one life, draw a card, and retrigger Gary

Leyline of the Void - +2 Devotion for free is proven to be OP in Mono-Green, so it stands to reason it would be here too, if anything it should be in sideboard.

Awesome deck dude! Love the idea and it feels really powerfull if your opponent doesn't mess to much with your game plan. Still, I have some ideas for your sideboard.


I would cut all 3 Thoughtseize , shave 1 Inquisition of Kozilek and 3 Pithing Needle to make room for more utility in your side-board, the question with a sideboard for a combodeck should be; "What makes me insta loose??".


From what I can see is that your worst nightmares are Rest in Peace , Leyline of the Void , Surgical Extraction and any Eldrazi Titan. Control also seems a bid rough. I would make the sideboard something like:

1x Pithing Needle 3x Darkness 3x Inquisition of Kozilek 4x Pact of Negation 4x Ratchet Bomb


This deck looks really cool so don't get me wrong on my critique ;). I've played a lot of Ad Nausseum for a couple of years and narrow combo decks are great fun! Just don't forget you can cheat on pretty much anything if you are winning within 1 turn. This is why I would run the Blue pact in the side. Pact of Negation is a control player's worst nightmare.

capriom85 on Mono Blue Pioneer Sideboard Help

I took my mono Blue deck out for a spin this week, and I was overall happy with the results. After 4 rounds of Swiss I only lost 2 games. Unfortunately they were to the same player, who was 2-1’d me with that 5 color Superfriends build. I won game one with almost perfect draws and starting hand. Had him game two, but misplayed and made my Brazen Borrower unblockable instead of Thassa, God of the Sea , herself. Then he used the Bolas “lose unless you control a legendary” ability, and that was all she wrote. Game three, I never had a chance. He whacked me with Supreme Verdict and I never came back from it.

I had zero trouble beating Burn, that artifacty Metalwork Colossus thing, and Gruul energy.

Then, during top 4 I got beat 2-1 by the graveyard dredge deck. He always had blockers up to stop my mid-game assaults that are usually the lethal swings. I sided a Jace, Architect of Thought in, but his ultimate ability netted me zero usefulness from his deck, and my own threat got hosed by a kill spell.

So, I obviously need graveyard hate. I am adding Grafdigger's Cage to my side against this match. I just can’t commit to a set of Leyline of the Void with it being a dead card unless it’s in my starting hand. I realize that’s the idea, but no. The cage works fine here I imagine.

What do I do against Superfriends? I suppose I can throw Cyclonic Rift into the side. I can overload the board back to his hand, and he essentially has to start from scratch again. Any better advice?
