Yea, unfortunately maelstrom pulse is everywhere in the format.

Add some blue for negate.

Hm. I suppose Luminarch Ascension will be one of those cards that are waaaay overhyped (like Though Hemorrhage) - looks good in theory, doesn't work as you'd want it to in reality. And you can't just play with only one win condition, dude. Try a mono-white control version with O-rings, the pseudo-o-rings, the ramping kor cartographer, narrow escape, martial coup, etc. Of course, you're probably going to lose to cascade, as you have no real source of card advantage. Just mix it up with another colour... if you're going with green, you're gonna need more muscle. Or go white-red control, without lark.

He has 4 win conditions, all of which are luminarch ascension.

That may or may not work, depending on the meta. The meta is basically creatures.dec so it's actually not a bad idea at all.

Right now maelstrom pulse is his primary enemy.

I'd definitely run 4 day of judgment main.

Splash some blue in there for negate to protect your ascension and counter planeswalkers.

Put more world quellers in the sideboard for planeswalkers while ur at it.

I don't think u can justify 4 harrow and 4 expedition.

Here, dunno. Mana is terrible and basically can't support the spell pierces at all now that I think about it. Don't really know why world queller is in the side other than against a deck with 7 or 8 planeswalkers.

This is why I don't make decks.

// Lands
2 [CFX] Reliquary Tower
4 [M10] Sunpetal Grove
2 [ALA] Island (1)
3 [M10] Glacial Fortress
5 [ALA] Forest (1)
4 [ALA] Plains (1)
3 [ZEN] Misty Rainforest

// Spells
4 [ZEN] Harrow
4 [M10] Howling Mine
4 [ZEN] Luminarch Ascension
4 [ZEN] Day of Judgment
4 [M10] Negate
4 [M10] Safe Passage
4 [M10] Fog
3 [ZEN] Spell Pierce
4 [ALA] Angelsong
2 [ZEN] Khalni Heart Expedition

// Sideboard
SB: 4 [ZEN] World Queller
SB: 4 [ALA] Hindering Light
SB: 3 [M10] Indestructibility
SB: 1 [ZEN] Iona, Shield of Emeria
SB: 3 [M10] Flashfreeze

Yes, that is a REALLY good example of why you shouldn't ever build decks.

You guys are idiots if you think that card is bad...... It is the last great hope for control.

As much as I love Luminarch Ascension to fucking death... it got printed at the wrong time. Perhaps when Maelstrom Pulse and Esper Charm leave the building it will haul ass, but for now everyone WILL kill it. And it is a lot harder to get to 4 counters than you might think. Which is sad, because all you really have to do is activate it 6 times, which is usually over the course of two turns at your opponent's end step, and you literally win. =(
