Megumin_Hugs on Board Wipe Win-cons?

1 day ago

Hello, I have a deck that revolves around board wipes Megumin Explosions!!!. The current win-condition that I have is Repercussion and many board wipes such as Star of Extinction or Blasphemous Act . With so many cards out there I was hoping someone knows of some other win-cons that fit this theme. I currently use tutors and recursion if someone disrupts this very narrow plan. Thanks

king-saproling: Thanks for the cards, I considered most of these and ended up deciding against most of them. Neheb, the Eternal is a great card that I intend to test out.

Azdranax: Definitely would make sense to add cards like lightning bolt from a power standpoint, I just want to make big jank burn deck though. Still, it might find a place if I end up cutting some cards. Also, 100% thanks for the clarification on Kediss, I did not read the card correctly.

LunchBox1211: Thanks for the ideas! Star of Extinction is already in the deck, but it was a great suggestion nonetheless. For the rest of the cards, there are small various reasons as to why I probably won't include them. Bonfire of the Damned was actually one the original cards I added to the deck during building, but while optimizing it I realized it wasn't quite as strong as some of the other massive x-spells I have. Being able to target only one player means I simply can't reach as far as I would want to with my damage. Rite of the Raging Storm doesn't quite fit into this deck, but I do have a Kardur, Doomscourge deck that does utilize it if you would like to check that out. Finally, I simply can't protect planeswalkers in this deck, especially with a number of high damage spells that hit planeswalkers, and Leyline of Punishment isn't much of a problem since lifegain is rare and doesn't negate commander damage.

Mono-red burn in EDH. Bold move, I love it!

Some cards that may be of help: Star of Extinction for more mass burn, Bonfire of the Damned for the same thing, but with the fun and overlooked miracle mechanic, Rite of the Raging Storm if you need to poke people with creatures (or in a multiplayer game you can use it to have opponents start hitting each other), Chandra, Awakened Inferno to put opponents on a ticking clock, and gets more damage on the table, Leyline of Punishment to get around lifegain.

One more thing, every time I read the name of your deck I keep on thinking of a thing I saw. "I'll just fire a warning shot down by his feet." "Carl, that's a grenade launcher."

This is a great backbone build! I’m using it to draw a baseline for mine. My main recommendation is, why not cut Electrolyze for something like Flame Slash or even Anger of the Gods ? I also recommend Underworld Breach alongside some across the board damage spells, perhaps! Get the giants you wiped away with things like your Blasphemous Act or Star of Extinction . Lavabrink Floodgates also seems like a fun game of chicken that you can benefit from. It goes from “Let it wipe the board” to “Don’t leave us defenseless while he draws cards!” It’s also a good mana rock!

Sughes I would absolutely say Jared is worth building around! In my opinion, Jared is the most fun in casual metas, because the Monarch is such a great mechanic for politics and it adds another line of play as well as gas for everyone (especially when someone is falling behind or didn't run as much card draw as they thought they would need). To me the most fun in a game is to get the chance to see each deck pop off before the game ends, and this helps everyone (but mostly us) get the chance to do so.

For a casual meta, I would suggest taking out all of the combo pieces except Boros Reckoner, Brash Taunter, Sun Titan, and Gift of Immortality. Then put in more board wipes and stax; Star of Extinction and Settle the Wreckage are perfect board wipes to add in and a couple non-damage based ones would be good to run as well. Consider also adding some curses as indirect stax; Curse of Opulence, Curse of Bounty, and Shiny Impetus are great ways to incentivize your opponents into attacking each other while gaining some value yourself. Then any basic stax pieces would be good to run in a creature heavy meta. Windborn Muse, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, Crawlspace, and Ghostly Prison are all classic stax pieces that would be great for that.

Make allies politically with Jared's ability, help every keep pace and be able to play, and then take the monarch for yourself and steal the game!

You become the Monarch. Boom > Blasphemous Act and a ton of counters. Damage based boardwipes are your friend. Star of Extinction, Shivan Meteor
