Trouble with Helix Pinnacle...

Commander (EDH) forum

Posted on Aug. 13, 2021, 12:49 a.m. by Havok.Bane

So a friend of mine whom I play commander with frequently loves the card Helix Pinnacle. Now normally it's shroud isn't too much of a problem, so long as I use something like Bane of Progress, but when I'm playing my enchantment deck I don't want to be forced to wipe out all of my own enchantments just to take out his singular card...

So my question is does anyone have any card suggestions to somehow get around Helix Pinnacle's shroud and get rid of the thing?

Calming Verse will allow you to wrath all enchantments but yours. You can also combo it with Enchanted Evening to take out all their permanents while leaving your own intact.

depends on how many players there are but Council's Judgment is one option. Just have to get one other player on board with you and then everyone will choose the same thing as you.

If it's the only enchantment your friend is running, you could consider Pharika's Libation too, but it's not a certainty this will deal with the problem.

In the same lane as Caerwyn 's suggestion, there's Cleansing Meditation which (if tresholded) will retrigger your enchantress etb effects while leaving the Pinnacle destroyed.

Armageddon usually stops green decks from winning with Helix Pinnacle too, but I'd call that an acquired taste, it's not for everyone, proceed at your own risk '^^

You could also use Sun Titan (or other similar cards) to bring Minimus Containment (or other similar cards) out from your graveyard.

Came here to mention Calming Verse. Also, Primeval Light. Spring Cleaning is less sure, but still functional, as is Root Greevil (hits some, but not all your enchantments).

If you're playing enchantress, I'm going to assume you're in white. So you can minimize your losses with an enchantment wrath with Essence Filter

And of course there's always Cyclonic Rift
