Scour from Existence Discussion

TheoryCrafter on Sliver-Overlord

1 month ago

Have you considered Realmwalker ? Combined with Dormant Sliver you have a combo that will continue to get slivers on the battlefield until a non-sliver card reaches the top of your library or your mana runs out. Another card you may want to consider is Shard Convergence . With your non-basic lands as they are it will be easy to get the color combo you need.

Also, your deck rides heavily on getting enough slivers onto the battlefied in addition to Gemhide Sliver and/or Manaweft Sliver before an opponent plays Blood Moon . May I suggest any combination of cards including, but not limited to, Scour from Existence and Introduction to Annihilation *?

Happy Hunting!

  • Card is found in the yet to be released(as of this post) Strixhaven set.

Tyrant-Thanatos on Is Anyone Else Feeling Disappointed …

2 months ago

This is definitely going to be an opinion-filled thread, but I'll throw my hat in.

I disagree wholeheartedly. In fact I'd go so far as to say Strixhaven is the only set I've been actually excited for in what feels like ages. Eldraine was somewhat exciting but before that... Dominaria? Again this is entirely subjective and I'm not here to tell anyone they're wrong about their opinion on a product. But I'm looking forward to Strixhaven.

Introduction to Annihilation is the worst example I could possibly think of to argue blurring the line between colors. Scour from Existence , Universal Solvent , Meteor Golem , Unstable Obelisk , Spine of Ish Sah , Colorless permanent removal is far from new or color warping. Most of the lessons, like Introduction to Prophecy , will mostly be inconsequential imo because, to be frank, they're bad. 3 for a Serum Visions ? Even mono-white isn't THAT desperate for draw.

WOTC is trying to force us into playing golgari lifegain

I'm stoked to finally get golgari lifegain support. If that's not your style, I get it, but I'm happy for it personally.

Galazeth Prismari feels like a case of catering to EDH. Adding red to your deck options and tapping artifacts for any color instead of blue feels like more of a sidegrade than a downgrade. We'll have to see how it does imo.

As for Beledros Witherbloom , a wise man once said of Prophet of Kruphix : If you think this card costs mana, you've been fooled. As for "This card may not be used in any infinite mana combo", actually it says "Flicker me". It's not in good colors for that, but I could see a BUG deck getting infinite mana out of this if they can find a way to supply the life. Deadeye Navigator says hi.

Release, experience, and hindsight will probably affect everyone's opinions on Strixhaven, as it has every set before it. So I generally try to take a "wait and see" approach, even if MTG doesn't have a great record for what I've waited for and seen recently imo.

Have you considered Inspiring Statuary and Scour from Existence ? Inspiring Statuary will allow you to tap artifacts to cast Scour From Existence to deal with the Karn, The Great Creator/ Mycosynth Lattice combo.

Happy Hunting!

Caerwyn on Strixhaven color "balancing"

Though Introduction to Annihilation costs 5, rather than 7... it also gives the opponent a card. That's generally going to be far more dangerous than paying an additional . Add in the fact that it's a sorcery, whereas Scour from Existence is an instant, and I think using it as an example of power creep is a huge stress.

I'll also point out that Introduction to Prophecy costs more than its mono-colored equivalent (going by Wizards' general design rule that is roughly equivalent to one colored mana).

Oh for sure, red doesn't have the best removal options in commander for creatures like it does in other formats... Scour from Existence is probably the only other real option for mono-red decks. I like Dark Temper as well, but for that you have to have access to a black permanent.

Pheardemons on Rainbow in the Dark: Haakon Reanimator Combo

4 months ago

Hello again FenIsABasicSwamp. Not sure if you remember me, but I was the one that was building a Haakon deck around the same time you were (a little after). I also had a GoT theme but went more discard. I've been out of the magic scene for a bit but I was coming back to check out your deck because I am trying to revamp my version. I am still amazed at this deck as it truly does everything that I love in Magic. If I could upvote this twice I definitely would. I have some questions for you if that's alright.

1) Why Wasteland over Strip Mine? Why not both?

2) How relevant has Emergence Zone been?

3) Why fetches in a mono-colored deck? I understand filtering, but you only play two and it seems you have a lot of draw.

4) Has K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth earned his place? Also, how do you supplement the lifeloss? I see some lifelink (and he has it as well) but have you ever needed to worry about the life lost from using him? Do you try to win before this is a problem?

5) Is Abhorrent Overlord's ETB make him more attractive than something like Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder or Ghoulcaller Gisa? How badly do you need tokens for fodder?

6) Is Bitterblossom not worthwhile for the Contamination combo? If not, how come? I see Winter Orb in the sideboard so it seems like you may want to lockdown in some cases to ensure the deck gets to the mid-to-late game.

7) I know that Sidisi, Undead Vizier can be a repeatable tutor, but how come you don't play more tutors like Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal or even Increasing Ambition? (Unless money is a factor)? Also, why no Razaketh, the Foulblooded? Especially with the token generation factor.

8) Has Ghirapur Orrery ever backfired and helped an opponent(s) more than it has helped you? Same question for Lifeline and Tombstone Stairwell.

9) Null Profusion is a card I've always meant to try, but the limit of two cards has always deterred me. How has it played for you? Staple? Needed? Just okay?

10) I'm SURE I'm missing something with Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, but he seems "off" to me in your list. You have enough draw to not worry about losing life and sacking a creature that can be sacked to other things. What does he bring to this kind of build?

11) Is the dredge from Stinkweed Imp needed? Do you constantly dredge whenever you can or is there a time and place?

12) What are the cards you mainly go for when you transmute Fleshwrither? Is it not easier to replace this with Grim Tutor? Does the fact that he's a creature make him more appealing?

13) Have you ever named zombies with Conspiracy for Cryptbreaker? Do you just use his ability to get you zombies? Is his draw worthwhile even if it seems slow for a non-zombie dedicated deck?

14) Has Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger's cast trigger been enough non-creature removal? I saw the comment about Feed the Swarm so I won't suggest it, but what about Oblivion Stone, All Is Dust, and even Scour from Existence? If they're not needed, how come?

I read your Bio. I understand that your specifically chose not to use some of the cards and combos I've listed here. I hope that my questions come across as curiosity, not "you should do this and do that."

I know I've asked a lot of questions in this on comment, but if you could do me one more thing. Since you like underrated themes and/or commanders would you be willing to take a look at my Rakdos the Defiler deck? He is one I built early in my Magic career, purely for a theme, and without a template. He has become a powerful deck since and I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Horror, Carnage, and Annihilation. All are Rakdos..
