Damnation against eldrazi will probably most of the time end exiled by TKS. Don't see it as an answer, maybe go up to 3 rejections instead which are gold. Try to thoughtseize their bombs and then Rejection snap rejection and terminate if something lands, all that should help a lot.
You're not wrong. However if they have chalice on one. Then rejection just dead if you don't see a k command. Like I said I'm gonna test it out.
Having been played this deck for 2 months. The deck is sweet but always flooded. Recently I made some big changes, namely replace Street Wraith with Sleight of Hand and try Young Pyromancer. Got couple of 4-1 in MO competive league. Any thoughts?
I agree with what you wrote regarding Wraith. Surgical has almost always a valid target, whether it's a fetch land they just cracked or a Path they just used to remove one of our threats. I have tested Surgical in the main instead of Wraiths and it has suprised me with it's efficiency. I will continue testing it more vs a broader range of matchups before I make my final verdict.
Hey guys, I have a card suggestion to make. Please don't shoot me if you don't like it. We could replace 4 Street Wraith with 4 Surgical Extractions. Both cards drain us 2 life. The benefit with Surgical is that we can remove staples from our opponent deck as soon as a card hits their graveyard (which isn't hard to do with our deck). Would like to hear your guys opinion on this change. I understand that Street Wraith replaces itself whilst Surgical doesn't. However, Surgical can remove up to 3 cards from their deck/hand.
Edit: It's also another Snapcaster target.
Wraith smooths out our draws, which allows us to run fewer lands. It makes Serum Visions much better and allows us to keep some normally sketchy hands. It also provides you with extra uses with K-Command and Liliana, the Last Hope from the side. It's also an all-star as a method to break board stalls against the mirror as just an unblockable beater.
Surgical Extraction is card disadvantage, it's useless against an opponent with an empty grave and is really only at it's best when you're extracting highly important cards that your opponent absolutely needs to function. I've even moved away from running them in the side. The card is solid, but it's more of a very specific answer for certain types of strategies than it is a mainboard card.
When I was waiting for my wraiths in the mail. I used 4x surgical extraction. It was okay. The wraiths made the deck so much better.
¿Hey guys I got a question, has anyone tried a single Bontu's last reckoning in the side against Eldrazis? I'm having a rough time against the deck (not so much against chalice but to reality smasher and the like).
I use big game hunter. I Also use liliana of the veil
I'll be honest, you guys must be good. I found Grixis Death Shadow really hard to pilot when all these removal heavy decks cropped up.
I still make miss plays. I've just had 7 months straight playing grixis control. Putting in those hours really helped me. Be patient. Think out your lines. Always think. "If I do this. My oppent could have this?"
4 Thoughtseize because it's great disruption that also powers up our Shadows. 2 IoK because that's what Michael Majors had in his first draft of the deck, and not many people have deviated from that draft outside of tweaking removal spells and the sideboard.
Fair. I've been trying out 4 of each. Been great so far.
