After the coming rotation with Khans of Tarkir being released, will there be any way to remove from the battlefield a Darksteel Citadel that has been turned into a creature by Nissa, Worldwaker's first +1 ability?

It seems the me that being indestructible and also a land protect it from almost all removal, Devour Flesh in the current standard being the only obvious exception.

I'm looking for solutions in the soon-to-be Theros + Khans of Tarkir standard format.

Any card that says "Exile target creature", "Exile target artifact", or "Exile target permanent" will remove an animated Darksteel Citadel. Cards that do this include

In addition, if it's toughness ever drops to 0, it will die as a state based effect. Lash of the Whip, for example, will kill it.

  • Done. There are a lot more. I just got bored of listing them.

  • I didn't know that you could search for Standard. That's great. But note that that search is currently incorrect (it still shows pre-rotation cards), and that it misses cards like Curse of the Swine and Perilous Vault.
