Optimator on Giant's Deck

3 months ago

So other than the Giants themselves, the last two areas to look at are removal and utility. Depending on how much Brion tech you want to include, you are probably going to have to skimp on one of these two areas.

Removal is tricky in EDH. You don't want too little or too much. You're running White, so you can destroy anything you want--which is nice.

I would recommend two or three board wipes minimum and at least and five or six cards that can take care of artifacts and enchantments. Creature removal is great for aggro decks but the Threaten cards can take care of that for the most part.

You're running Blasphemous Act, which is one of the best wraths. I'd still recommend one or two more board wipes though. I like Mizzium Mortars a lot but it doesn't quite count.

I have Sublime Exhalation - Planar Outburst - Phyrexian Rebirth - Cleansing Nova - Planar Cleansing - Fumigate - Divine Reckoning - Rout

If you can find a Wrath of God or Day of Judgment, the one-mana difference is actually huge. Definitely add Cleansing Nova in my opinion. Sublime Exhalation is probably the next-best one.

Hallowed Burial and Descend upon the Sinful are neat due to not sending things to the graveyard and getting through Indestructible. I think I have some of the latter.

One tactic you can do is sandbag your big creatures and wait for your opponents to commit to the board, then wrath and start playing your giants. If you like the sound of that, run five wraths or something like that. It's only a few more mana to kill EVERY creature.

I know you have some Wear / Tears. I'd add one for sure.

I have a bunch of Crush Contrabands, which are great. I'd highly recommend it.

Things like Oblivion Ring and Banishing Light are fantastic on a budget. I think I have both.

Generous Gift is stellar. I don't have any but it's getting reprinted soon and may be cheap.

I have a Pyrohemia on hand. Might be interesting with all your huge giants. Maybe not though.

I have a Fight to the Death. Might be interesting. Same with my Response / Resurgence.

Titan's Revenge is giant-tribal-y. From Morningtide, and should be somewhat reliable for winning the Clash. More gimmicky than good though.

Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are the gold standards for creature removal though. No reason to not run them if you have them. Regrettable, I have none for trade. Path just got reprinted though for what it's worth. I have a boatload of all the budget replacements for them, like Oust, Condemn, Oblation, etc.

Something like Comet Storm might be an interesting include. It can function as removal or win the game outright out of nowhere. I have none on hand but it keeps getting reprinted.

There are tons and tons of removal cards out there.


I would cut Crush Underfoot unless you're married to the flavor. It's pretty bad. Any removal not already mentioned here I would cut. It's all pretty weak and you're gonna need the slots.

Serabelle on Avacyn Worldslayer

6 months ago

Hey, nice to see someone else is trying to make Avacyn competitive! Here are some thoughts from my own Avacyn deck, I’m still in the process of building it as well. :)

Ramp:

Card Quality:

Protecting Avacyn:

  • Avacyn is a huge threat and most people will definitely try to stop you from using her by: countering her summoning, exiling her, -x/-x, sacrifice, copying or stealing her.

  • Teferi's Protection is complete board protection. Probably the best defense white has.

  • Effects like Otherworldly Journey or Long Road Home allow you to save her from exile board wipes, Cyclonic Rift and the like.

  • Arcane Lighthouse is useful in circumstances that someone copies or steals your Avacyn.

  • Whispersilk Cloak can also combo well with Worldslayer (just be sure to equip Worldslayer first).

Spot Removal:

  • Oblation (shuffles back into deck)

  • Condemn (puts attacking creature at the bottom of its owner’s library)

Counter Spells: (Not that there are many in white).

Stax:

Potential Planeswalkers:

Good Luck! I hope the deck building goes well! :)

pokemonmasterjal on Griffins at a Great Price

instead of the combat tricks you should put in card advantage

Arcane Encyclopedia, Book of Rass, Coveted Jewel, Inheritance, Orazca Relic, Loreseeker's Stone, Rogue's Gloves, Seer's Sundial holy shit there's no card draw in white. Also put in Shefet Dunes for the meme.

Consider taking out: Smite, Oblation, Dusk/Dawn and also maybe one of your anthems

Enral on Mangara, The Diplomat EDH

Wow you're quick! Nice first draft. I'm wondering if the inclusion of Crested Sunmare is needed? Maybe include more interactions like Oblation/Flawless Maneuver/Unexpectedly Absent?

Gbeail on Well, that's odd

I don't recommend Scour from Existence even cheated out I don't think its worth it. Wasting an entire turns attack to remove one thing doesnt seem worth it and it cost a lot so summon from hand. Some that have a cheaper CMC are Oblation, Archon of Justice and Elspeth Conquers Death. They're weird but can do more for cheaper. Even the unicorn can be used as a blocker before removing the threat. Then there are board wipes for less CMC than Scour from Existence that keep your commander around with Cataclysmic Gearhulk and Urza's Ruinous Blast. Then a plain board wipe with End Hostilities

WhiteTrashMagic on Mortify or Mythos of Nethroi?

10 months ago

It also matters how good your mana base is, mythos is only REALLY good if you pay all three colors, otherwise it’s just ok. Whereas mortify will always do the same thing, but you have to have the two colors two even be able to cast it. Depending on what else is in the deck Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Beast Within, Generous Gift, Oblation and Assassin's Trophy are better options. But if you are adding to those I think I would pick mythos, I play a solid mana base in my 3 color decks and like it more than mortify
