Scour from Existence Discussion

Hi there,

You have most of the cards that fit here, but here are some additional cards for your consideration:


Fractured Powerstone - Another solid 2 cmc mana rock

Inspiring Statuary (and Metalworker if you have access to one) - use all of your artifacts to cast your big eldrazi

Hedron Crawler - another decent early rock/blocker

Thaumatic Compass  Flip - finds Wastes and provides protection later

Unstable Obelisk - ramp that can be cashed in as removal later


Scour from Existence - 7 mana is a lot, but it's extremely versitle

Soul-Guide Lantern - grave hate the spares your graveyard


Mirrorpool and Sanctum of Eternity might be useful as well

Conqueror's Galleon  Flip can provide a lot of utility once flipped

Happy deck building!

First off, thanks for the feedback Gbeail! This was so much good information, I am now definitely digging Cataclysmic Gearhulk and Urza's Ruinous Blast for semi-board wipes. (How did I not see those?!) I see now that I was blinded by the high CMC spells, and Scour from Existence isn't as good as other particular cards, so I will definitely be replacing it. Thanks again!

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

Not that I think it'll come up, but be careful when running Bad Moon because if someone drops a Darkest Hour it can really turn bad lol.

The more I look into it, Green and White have a lot of enchantment hate cards for mono-black:

Luckily I don't think anyone has any of these so they won't be a problem for a while. I also just realised that mono-black has no enchant removal at all, I think the best bet would be Eye of Doom and just hope that you and the teammate pick better permanents than your opponents. There is also Scour from Existence but you're probably wanting the game to be over by the time you have 7 mana.

Scour from Existence is great removal but it is so costly at 7 mana!
when i have blue i would generally rather run bounce like Boomerang or Capsize before scour.

Grind Thanks for the input. I've thought about hight tide I'm just trying to figure out what I would cut. I would also like to add a bit more removal like Blue Elemental Blast, Hydroblast and Scour from Existence.

Cool deck! Ever considered Codex Shredder or Conqueror's Galleon  Flip? Return cards from grave in colorless!

These might interest you too: Lotus Petal, Salvaging Station, Lion's Eye Diamond (infinite mana with Salvaging Station and Karn), Dross Scorpion, Cauldron of Souls, Scrapyard Recombiner (finds all kinds of dudes including Metalworker and Voltaic Construct (thanks errata!)), Meteor Golem, Scour from Existence, Null Brooch, Warping Wail (surprisingly versatile. at worst it can be used as a delayed ritual to get Karn out a turn sooner), Empowered Autogenerator, Umbral Mantle, Mirrorpool, Endbringer

Though not Ideal Scour from Existence is an option as well for a check all removal.
