Vanishing Verse


Exile target monocoloured permanent.

Crow-Umbra on Isshin [Medium Budget]

Nice deck! Lol. My only suggestions are to maybe consider Vanishing Verse over Fracture, and Tibalt's Trickery over Red Elemental Blast/Pyroblast as potential upgrades..

I like Exile removal a bit more for my meta, since I have more Grave Yard strats I play against, but it's ultimately a personal choice. Vanishing Verse still hits plenty of mono-color value engines like Rhystic Study and Sylvan Library. Tibalt's Trickery can interact with more spells on the stack, but lacks the Blue removal that Elemental Blast/Pyroblast do. I had Pyroblast in one of the earliest versions of my Isshin deck, but removed it because it felt too narrow for my meta. Definitely a good choice though if you encounter Blue pretty frequently.

Venoctus, if you have the budget and deck space, you could run both Purphoros, God of the Forge and Terror of the Peaks.

I think Purphoros is slightly better for helping Isshin end games because of its group slug damage. Yes, Terror of the Peaks can shoot damage at creatures and Planeswalkers, but is easier to remove.

Also, using Terror of the Peaks as removal is kinda slow and clunky. You need to have Terror stick around long enough and you need to make enough creatures to shoot the damage needed. Remember you can attack Planeswalkers directly each combat, so just send a few tokens or creatures at them. Generous Gift, Anguished Unmaking, and Vanishing Verse are all great removal pieces.

For Isshin, I've noticed it's helpful to have removal for value engine enchantments and artifacts, and attacking players and their planeswalkers will soften up their boards from blocks.

Edgewalker + Remembrance + Thrumming Stone is absolute poetry. A clever yet terrifying engine.

Secret Salvage absolute janky bulk rare zero turns into this decks hero.

Imp's Mischief and Rebuff the Wicked offer this combo adequate protection.

Vanishing Verse surprisingly useful.

Battletide Alchemist or Master Apothecary worth a spot?

Starlit Sanctum might be useful.

Tainted Pact is not good in this deck either haha. My suggestion would be Boseiju, Who Shelters All. Urborg "fixes" it while it offers your game winning spells guaranteed delivery.

Apollo_Paladin I dropped out of Magic for the last few years. I completely missed the last 5 or 6 sets. Got sick of nothing but Drakes, Gates, and Red Deck Loses. Fracture is an awesome card for the deck, thanks. Vanishing Verse strikes me as a sideboard option, if I happen to play BO3, and I'm a bit hesitant to use Infernal Grasp due to its life cost. Both might be useful as 1 or 2 ofs to replace the Unmoored Egos.

Those Mortify copies you're running are staring at me awfully hard wanting to be more like Fracture, Vanishing Verse, or even Infernal Grasp if universal creature targeting is key for you.

That said, it's nice to see another Arena player posting decks here on TappedOut. +1 just for that haha

With your mana curve being so low, 38 lands seems like WAAAAYYYYY too much. I think you can get away with 33. Killing Wave is really good for suicide/aristocrats lists. Serra Ascendant could be really strong. It would also be good to consider removal, since you have some of the best colors for it:


Anguished Unmaking

Damn (just noticed you had it but still good to note it should stay)

Winds of Abandon

Damnation (might as well run board wipes)

Vanishing Verse


Fateful Absence

Generous Gift

Westvale Abbey  Flip is another good sac outlet, maybe consider some more token generators like the various X token spells like Secure the Wastes and the like to help give more fodder for the large sac outs.

Secure the Scene and Reduce to Memory are really bad cards. I know you intentionally didn't put planeswalkers in the deck, but Kaya the Inexorable is just a better Secure the Scene. I'd replace Reduce to Memory with Vanishing Verse. If you are curious about the rest of the removal suite that I use in my Esper Control deck, here's the link: Value / Grindy - Nevinyrral Esper Control
