Merciless Eviction Discussion
1 week ago
I don't know how much you want but I'm going to recommend some cards as a Teysa, Orzhov Scion fan.
Planar Cleansing or Hour of Revelation is great in EDH to start the board over all over again. Merciless Eviction is something you should definitely keep in the deck by the way.
Anointed Procession is really good for doubling up on token effects. Requiem Angel and Field of Souls can be really nice too. Army of the Damned can provide a lot of bodies to work with. I've won with Army of the Damned and Maw of the Obzedat before. Storm Herd is an absolute beast too.
Two artifacts that you should consider are Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar . These can let you go infinite if you also get a Darkest Hour or a Painter's Servant . I have a Darkest Hour in mine, can't justify the price of the Painter's Servant yet. Either way both of those Altars are great with or without going infinite.
Illusionist's Bracers are great on Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Maw of the Obzedat should you include one as well. Three tokens to exile two creatures? Yes, please. In theory, if you have a Maw with the Bracers out and you Storm Herd at 40 life, you can sacrifice 5 of them and have 35 11/11 flying pegasus. Great card, I think it's underrated.
Also consider getting gravepact and/or Dictate of Erebos and maybe a Martyr's Bond too. You may not exile creatures with Teysa when they're out because of the way the stack works and if you sacrifice three creatures they'll sacrifice theirs before Teysa can exile it, but it's extremely good to keep your creatures out and have everyone else open.

I was thinking of building a gwyn deck as well. Here are some cards I think could be cool to run in this deck. Obviously a lot of options.
- Colossus Hammer - this was built for syr gwyn in mind
- Explorer's Scope - ramp, always important
- Heartseeker - with gwyn, tap to kill target creature
- Surestrike Trident - if you have this and Colossus Hammer it reads, each creature taps to deal 10+ damage to an opponent.
- Ogre's Cleaver - cheap artifact and now free equip
- Haunted Cloak
- Infiltration Lens
- Vorrac Battlehorns - if you want to be mean, put this on syr gwyn
- Loxodon Warhammer
- Chariot of Victory
- Fleetfeather Sandals
- Moonsilver Spear - doesn't fit the theme but flying angels are always fun
- Scythe of the Wretched - this plus Grappling Hook means steal any creature you can kill that isn't tapped
- Strata Scythe - pick the best color of the three. keep in mind this includes lands opponents control
- Authority of the Consuls - slow everyone and gain life
- Blind Obedience - slow everyone down while draining them and gaining life
- Brave the Sands - never worry about swinging each turn and make chump blockers able to block two huge creatures
- Sigarda's Aid - just amazing
- Leonin Shikari - not a knight but now you can switch equipment for free in combat before damage is dealt
- Midnight Reaper
- Syr Alin, the Lion's Claw
- Knight of Grace
- Josu Vess, Lich Knight - late game win condition
- Mirran Crusader
- Vona, Butcher of Magan
- Fiendslayer Paladin
- Silverblade Paladin
Required are Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Surestrike Trident . Then you can just go down the line of creatures attaching all of your power increasing equipment and tapping them for tons of damage. If you have Leonin Shikari and Brave the Sands out, then you can all out attack and then do the tapping out on the endstep before your turn. If you don't have Surestrike Trident but instead have Heartseeker then you can just kill a creature for each one you control.

bossomus Thank you for the suggestions!
Smothering Tithe is a great card that I am sure I could find some room for. I also wanted to thank you for suggesting Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cleansing Nova . These are cards I have never seen before and will need to consider for the deck. At the moment, Merciless Eviction feels slightly better for me, since I have more choices, and many artifacts myself that can be hit. Caged Sun is always a great idea in ramping decks. And Command the Dreadhorde I had not yet considered, but would work immensely well just as you said.

I'd also consider adding Command the Dreadhorde . It gives you an outlet for all the life you've gained plus can recur all of your creatures if a boardwipe happens.
Lastly, I'd add Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . He gives most of your stuff undying which is just value.

No tutors? Depending on budgets/styles you can go with
Beseech the Queen
and probably more. I use Revelation with two others and if I generate enough mana, I can
Elixir of Immortality
back my old tutors and use Revelation to search them back out along with the Elixir plus whatever else I want.
As for board wipes I'd recommend at least a Planar Cleansing or Hour of Revelation just to make sure you can wipe a board clean and nice. Also, Merciless Eviction is strong when someone starts making things indestructible or you need to remove a specific type of problem off the table.
Fun enchantments like Black Market can also fetch you quite a bit of mana.

May I suggest the following?: Counterspell Negate Swan Song Delay as for the counters. They're just a must have in a blue controllish scenario when you want to avoid any trouble until you have your commander out. But they're also useful in the later stages of the game when you want to "nope" the key/finisher cards of your opponent(s). Blue is also known for it's draw power: Mystic Remora (the more affordable) and Rhystic Study both really shine in MP sessions.
White has also some nice control enchantments like: Oblivion Ring
, Banishing Light , Hieromancer's Cage , Stasis Snare or Suspension Field . I suggest to add one or two, to exile the biggest threat IF necessary (I'm looking at you generic Eldrazi with anihilator 4) You have 38 creatures in the deck. With Patriarch's Bidding you already have an excellent ressurection option IF ever needed (with this creature stock) so maybe taking out Lifeline and adding some ramp like Arcane Signet , Fellwar Stone , Coalition Relic or even Herald's Horn to reduce the mana cost of your slivers. Aggro decks (naturally) tend to attract more attention on the table. You also want to protect yourself from massive board-wipes with maybe Teferi's Protection , Boros Charm or Heroic Intervention . But use them yourself Planar Cleansing , Phyrexian Rebirth or Merciless Eviction should be some nice sideboard add's when facing maybe goblin's or vampires (also very aggro tribes) I'd rather run (target) permanent removals: Assassin's Trophy , Generous Gift , Beast Within than tutors (but this is a very personal choice) because your commander already is tutoring up all the other needs. Maybe add one more land tutor. Skyshroud Claim for example. first sliver could cascade you a massive amount of creatures in just one big scoop. A must have. Also maybe reduce the amount of the +/+ Slivers to get some room for the more necessary ramp and control you need to stabilize your game. I hope this helps to stabilize your gameplan. HF

This deck is a bit too casual. I recommend fixing your manarock base first. Take out Firemind Vessel , Armillary Sphere , and Dreamstone Hedron . Put in Wayfarer's Bauble , Farseek , and Kodama's Reach .
Dragon Arch doesn't work with your deck, because you don't have enough multicolored creatures to really use it. Take it out for Swiftfoot Boots . I think you already have one, and it is super-powerful.
Take out the following: Enlightened Tutor , Mystical Tutor , and Demonic Tutor . They are expensive and better in other decks for combo and stuff. Not worth wasting money on here. I'd even reconsider Diabolic Tutor , because it costs 4 and wastes time acquiring a card in non-combo, when you want every card to be a value engine, instead of a toolbox.
Upgrades: Consider adding Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner . I will give you a copy of her, as I have like 8 lying around for no reason.

Yo, its rad you want to play competitive, but why are you tagging a "It's still in its infancy and definitely a work in progress - suggestions are more than welcome!" deck as competitive? Almost as bad as people that tag their decks with primers and have 3 sentences.
First, rocks. Mana Crypt Chrome Mox Mox Diamond Mana Vault Talisman of Dominance and other color talismans. If you can't go faster than your opponent, they will simply win first. There's a reason almost every competitive commander deck runs these cards
Second, remove non-essential garbage cards. Why do you run Proper Burial ? Anything that doesn't actively help you win but rather sustains a game is (usually) a bad card. Anything that costs >5 mana you should also consider cutting because its either bad or you can do it for cheaper, Sepulchral Primordial Agent of Treachery Rise of the Dark Realms etc. As we talked about earlier with rocks, competitive EDH goes REAL fast, so you won't get to 9 mana to cast your big spell (that doesn't even win on resolution) without fast mana, which you don't run.
Third, replace bad interaction with cheaper more reliable interaction. Render Silent is pretty cool but it costs 3 mana for a counterspell, and it is extremely color intensive. Dissolve is also 3 mana and that simply doesn't cut it in competitive. Look at Dispel Swan Song Force of Will Pact of Negation Force of Negation Mana Leak Spell Pierce . Also look at your removal, Merciless Eviction is cool and flexible but not a competitive card, because it costs 6 mana to wipe. You should consider running better targeted removal too, like Doom Blade and Fragmentize
TL;DR Replace high mana cost cards with lower ones to reduce amount of dead cards in hand at all points of game.
