Winds of Abandon

Winds of Abandon

Sorcery

Exile target creature you don't control. For each creature exiled this way, its controller searches their library for a basic land card. Those players put those cards onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle their libraries.

Overload (You may cast this spell for its overload cost. If you do, change its text by replacing all instances of "target" with "each".)

Winds of Abandon Discussion

muzecl on Sram: Advantage is King

Haven't revisited this deck in a while, going to try some of the new toys out :D

Added:

Nettlecyst replacing Sword of War and Peace . Provides us with another body (potentially flash with sigarda's aid) and an extremely relevant ability.

Shadowspear replacing Basilisk Collar . Significant upside with trample instead of deathtouch + having an additional way of dealing with hexproof.

Colossus Hammer replacing Giver of Runes . Honestly? This just seems really fun at instant speed :P

Winds of Abandon replacing Swords to Plowshares . Our enchantment removal seems to do really well, we lack is mass removal- check. Extra lands should be irrelevant at this point.

Giver of Runes , Winds of Abandon are good, giver should be a 1 of for ranger. No Flickerwisp ?

plakjekaas on Pursuing Perfection, Part 1: Mono-White …

My favorite mono white commander is the forgotten Heliod, God of the Sun . Skybind is amazing when you can make Enchantment Creature Tokens at a whim. Your team having Vigilance works amazing with Meekstone + Blind Obedience . With all the Cleric support in the last few sets, you could even take a peek in that direction.

Most white ramp that actually puts land into play, requires your opponents to have more lands than you. White has a few options to make that happen: Path to Exile , Winds of Abandon , Settle the Wreckage (which can also work wonders using it on yourself if you're the go-wide token player) in addition to bounce lands like Karoo and Guildless Commons . Of course, Extraplanar Lens works double duty there.

But the absolute best card in white, to drag down the other players to your level and make them watch their step, is Aven Mindcensor . Really, try it. It's the best response to a green player putting a Boundless Realms on the stack.

antacidbrn on Modern Mill Deck Help

TriusMalarky - I did in fact retire the mill deck prior to ruin crab, so "8 Crab" was not flown. After I failed with Drown in the Loch , I retired the deck.

A lot has changed in Modern but a lot has not. Mill feels like a Burn deck, but rather than deal 20 damage, I now have to "burn" 52 cards. The opponent instantly knows what the plan, and they react accordingly. TBH, the most impactful spell was Archive Trap but even then, it was only 13 cards down.

You have several challenges: answering your opponent's threats, and no combat to speak of, milling their cards, keeping the graveyard empty.

I tried building the deck in many ways:

  1. As a control deck with Ensnaring Bridge , Mesmeric Orb , Surgical Extraction , etc.

  2. As a hybrid beatdown deck with Jace's Phantasm , Vantress Gargoyle , and Delver of Secrets  Flip.

  3. As a combo deck, going Esper, to use Winds of Abandon , Scheming Symmetry and Archive Trap .

I learned that the deck loses to Tribal decks such as Goblins, Elves and Spirits.

It loses to Collected Company and Infect decks. At the time, Affinity was a rough matchup, but so was Death's Shadow and Jund threats.

Some decks such as Dredg just got better when they were being milled, so anything which used the grave as a resource was rough.

In conclusion, it was fun to be "the mill player" and you always got a lot of attention as the villain. It was also fun to watch people get killed. But I never won anything more than a few pity packs.

I think baseline EDH rock ramp is fine for white, drawing is another matter.

Alms Collector exists and is worth mentioning

Some custom cards I've made on the topic Show

Omniscience_is_life maybe. Angelic Chorus gets insane though. 1 creature cast ends up making 10+ life with oketra and the soul sisters. Running out of spots of things that feel like they can be dropped. Maybe a board wipe? I have 5, but each lends it’s own benefit outside of wiping the board.

Winds of Abandon is one sided

Fumigate gains me tons of life

Dusk recurs my most needed creatures afterwards

Ajani, Strength of the Pride and Elspeth Tirel both gain tons of life and are atleast partially one sided.

Not sure which is weakest....
