Void Winnower Discussion

TypicalTimmy on [COMMUNITY] What cards do you ...

Ban: Sol Ring

Just for a month, say in April. Just to watch the community go in a frenzied uproar, lol.


Worth discussing, the general trend among banned cards is for one of two options:

  • They create an unbalanced play style that can lock players out of the game, which is unfair and of poor sportsmanship.
  • They generate far too much power and allow the player to win too easily; That is to say they win you the game if you have it out.

While I agree that locking a player out of the game with Iona, Shield of Emeria is pretty unfair, I also recognize you have two other players who should be able to handle it. Though, politics can push that off.

Still, I would need to question why cards like Void Winnower are still legal? Or Gaddock Teeg ?

I think ultimately what happens is people see a card do well in a tournament, so everyone starts to buy it. It gains traction, goes up in price, people complain and Wizard's steps in to qualm the outrage.

The truth of the matter is that the format is so diverse and the card pool is so extensive, no single card is undefeatable.

I'm sure if hundreds of players began to abuse the Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood combo, one of those would readily get banned, too. And yet, since nobody is using it, they both remain legal.

Bans happen because players abuse a cool new trend, not because the card is broken. Just look at Standard. How many Tier 1 decks got banned into dust during Kaladesh because of copypasta-netdecking?

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with using a design that is not entirely your own; I am saying Wizard's may be evaluating their ban list incorrectly, for EDH.

DivineKhaos you are correct. That section of the deck was actually outdated. Since then I have removed that creature for Angel of Serenity . I believe I updated my whole deck description at this point, but if you find any other eyebrow raising statements please let me know! :)

Memphismaymagic5 I originally had Darkrai as Void Winnower , but I’m definitely going to have to agree with you that It That Betrays is way more fitting. The change is coming soon and I will be adding your name to a list of people that have helped me with the deck. Thanks! :)

Hey lifemtg! sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I like Sigarda, Host of Herons as a protector. Seems so good.

I don't want to crowd the top end of my av. CMC with too many huge hitters -- I think I've got the package almost nailed from my 1-5 kinda range (I only really want 1 creature for each mana cost higher than 8). I think adding Zacama may be putting a hat on top of a hat. Void Winnower seems the same. They enter, and turn me into a threat, definitely, but without combo bits, Zacama doesn't really forward my plan (as he would be cheated out and not get the cast benefit.). And Winnower just makes my opponents hate me even more.

Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma was considered, but dropped due to his power not being enough for Mayael to find him, and even if cast, he doesn't affect me immediately, instead I need to untap with him for him to have power for me. Plus, the focus is more on using Mayael's ability, which doesn't have its cost reduced, or from cheaty spell like Selvala's Stampede , so I'd rarely get the creature discount or have it be worthwhile, unfortunately. This just comes from my experience playing this deck a long time.

Balefire Dragon = amazing! I used to run it years ago. Unfortunately, all my friends had a "kill on sight" bounty on Dragon, and she end up cut years back. I've found Skyline Despot to be a great replacement. The monarch card draw can't be understated (As it sticks around if Despot is ko'd) and if I untap, he makes dragons! YAY!

All great suggestions, and thank you for such great feedback -- I appreciate it. I spend a lot of time thinking about this deck, so I apologise if all your suggestions weren't taken onboard this time, but I guarantee I deeply considered them all.

After several suggestions, I come to the conclusion that extreme expensive cards are not that necessary. But enough big cards that can be game changing are interesting. The only realy expensive new card that will be introduced will be:

This evening I gonna figure this out and order the missing pieces.

I'm surprised there is no Void Winnower or It That Betrays in there. Two of the best eldrazi in my opinion. Also, the new Ugin, the Ineffable could help you drop multiple fat eldrazi per turn, cheating them out, plus helping with ramp by making your colorless spells cheaper.
