Relic of Progenitus Discussion

Daedalus19876 on To Drown the World in Death: Araumi EDH [PRIMER]

Queso_Fresco: It depends, somewhat. I generally don't over-extend, so I can rebuild my graveyard, and there's a LOT of lines to victory here. It's unusual for them all to get exiled in one shot. Relic of Progenitus doesn't worry me TOO much. Also, when I think an opponent has graveyard hate in hand, I prioritize wheeling even if it's card disadvantage for me.

HOWEVER, I do struggle a lot against early Rest in Peace or Planar Void or a pre-game Leyline of the Void. I can usually deal with an instant-speed exile effect, even if it's at a rough time. It's the continuous forms of graveyard hate which cause me real trouble. I've been considering how to deal with that... But to consistently have answers for them would force me to warp the deck pretty badly (7+ bounce spells, etc) and I'm not certain it's worth it.

I probably SHOULD stick Feed the Swarm in here, though.

Daedalus19876 thanks! Deck still looks good. Although now I'm wondering, how the hell does this do against any amount of graveyard hate? It seems like a single Relic of Progenitus shuts it down pretty well.

I think you can find better cards than a 1/1 deathtouch creature for . Maybe even Deadeye Tracker but it might not be worth it.

If you like that slot though there are at least three strictly better cards I can think of right now, Vampire of the Dire Moon, Foulmire Knight, and Ruthless Ripper.

Raven's Crime is middling, Leechridden Swamp is bad, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx dosen't have anything to ramp into.

You don't have much maindeck creature removal (for dorks, creatures relevant to combos etc.), I would reccomend Bloodchief's Thirst as it can also answer planeswalkers and is only 1 mana without kicker.

Your sideboard could use some work too, while I understand that you want to build devotion, Contaminated Ground and Withered Wretch aren't amazing at what they do. I guess I never have seen contaminated ground and its pretty cheap so you could test it and see how it does, but I would reccomend playing cards like Relic of Progenitus or Grafdigger's Cage over wretch in every case but maybe tribal zombies.

A couple of ideas. Don't play Soul-Guide Lantern, I feel like singular hate is very mediocre. If you want hate replace it with Relic of Progenitus. Add Mind's Eye and The Immortal Sun for better card draw. Replace Chromatic Orrery with Treasure Nabber for more efficient ramp, because Chromatic Orrery only will draw one card and at 7 mana it won't help in a mono-red deck because red does not have a lot of card draw. I do like the deck though, very nice job!

I'm not too sure about Scarab Feast. As far as graveyard hate goes, I think you'll be a lot better off with Relic of Progenitus, Soul-Guide Lantern, Scrabbling Claws, Scavenger Grounds or my personal favorite, Bojuka Bog. Also, while I fully understand the allure of playing Tetzimoc, Horobi, Death's Wail has a similar strategy but is a lot smoother IMO.

Hey Icaruskid, thanks for the +1 and nice comment! I like your list too. I have a few suggestions -

I think you should run more graveyard-hate. I only see Planar Void, but you need more ways to wipe your opponent’s graveyard. If your graveyard gets wiped too, that’s fine. Some deck types love it when you discard their cards for them, like The Gitrog Monster and Reanimator decks, and those decks are your main weakness. I’ve learned this from other T/O users who saw the same problem with my deck. You need to be able to draw more options without having to tutor for them all the time. Cards like Leyline of the Void, Tormod's Crypt, Cremate, Cling to Dust, Nihil Spellbomb, Soul-Guide Lantern, Relic of Progenitus, etc.

Another card I really like is Praetor's Grasp because it allows you to take out the card you think your opponent needs the most for their strategy. It has served me well several times.

Also I think Peer into the Abyss is expensive mana-wise. I would swap it out for Ad Nauseam, which is more effective and cheaper (mana-wise and now price-wise after it was reprinted).

Happy Halloween! :)

I have some more cheaper mill cards if you wanted to cut some of the bigger cards: Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mesmeric Orb, Sphinx's Tutelage, Memory Erosion, Ruin Crab, Bruvac the Grandiloquent (is an all-star, and I pulled one in a Jumpstart pack!), Maddening Cacophony, Archive Trap, Mind Grind and Hedron Crab

There are also some cards to keep graveyard decks off your neck by milling then exiling their yard like: Ravenous Trap, Leyline of the Void, Tormod's Crypt, and Relic of Progenitus

Last but not least, Bitter Ordeal will do some extremely heavy lifting when you mill someone for major cards in a turn. I recently realized that Gravestorm triggers off of any permanent put into any graveyard! That was a big find, and is helpful even with smaller triggers to root through their deck and turn off combo and exile other problematic cards before they are cast.
