Bontu's Last Reckoning |
Sorcery (R)
Destroy all creatures. Lands you control don't untap during your next untap step.
To the last, Bontu wanted only to be the first among the God-Pharaoh's subjects.

I like this. Interested to see how much it sees play.

3 mana wrath. Truly, Bontu is the hero we needed.

Heavy black decks can still push the next threat.
Seems a bit more awkward if you can't.

You might need it if you have to sweep the board on turn 3.
Also fun with Garruk Wildspeaker. And walkers in general, since you can more easily play them on the same turn and do things without having mana available.

The low mana cost does offer a lot of flexibility here, so that could be worth a lot.

But in terms of raw cost, you're basically paying 6+X over two turns, where X is however many extra lands you tap the turn you cast this. So if you cast Bontu's Last Reckoning and Scrapheap Scrounger, the Reckoning cost you 8 mana over two turns. That feels like a lot, but again, flexibility has value, so ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯.

Edit: Is it possible to prevent the forums from automatically adding an extra slash to my shrug emoji?

idk, \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ is typically an escape character, but it seems kind of archaic that it would do anything about it.
edit: apparently it duplicates itself in threads made on forum subsections, which is rather peculiar. Or so it seems in my limited sample size of 4 tests across 4 areas.
also editing this post over and over has amusing consequences.

I wonder how that guy got stuck on Bontu's scepter, the tip is actually pretty big.

Given the size of the figure compared to others in the picture, I think he's just between the scepter and the viewer. It's hard to tell, though.
