Hello readers! This is part 2 of a series featuring my Circu, Dimir Lobotomist EDH deck. If you didn’t read the first part, you can read it here. In this post, I’m going to highlight the different processor enablers in the deck.
Thought Harvester is a Circu for colorless cards, and often exiles much more of their deck than Circu does. Relic of Progenitus doesn’t exile cards from the library, instead it exiles cards from the opponent’s graveyard. It not only enables processors, it also hates on graveyards, a much needed effect, because our opponent’s cards end up it the graveyard after we process them, which can be a boon for many graveyard-based decks.
Dissipate and Void Shatter are cancels that exile the countered spell, Dissipate is generally better, because it does trigger Circu, exiling a card from your opponent’s deck.
Transgress the Mind and Witness the End are nice hand disruption, but are mostly just flavorful rather than powerful, but you can get rid of some big threats with Transgress the Mind.
We also have three exile removal spells, which get around indestructible, and Grip of Desolation also can mess up opponent’s mana bases. These are also more flavorful than powerful, but it gives the deck a really nice Eldrazi feel.
Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed! I’ll be back with part 3 next week!
