Chancellor of the Dross Discussion

theimpossibletwo on Beating a turn 0 win ...

I think if anyone were to play this format, everyone would start on the Chancellor of the Dross plan, then Elvish Spirit Guide + Life Goes On with one Emrakul, the Aeons Torn would beat that, but then you could also play Elvish Spirit Guide + Life Goes On + 1x Channel + 1x Fireball to beat that deck as well.

SteelSentry on Beating a turn 0 win ...

If there was a format where any number of a single card was available in the deck, the best deck would be a turn 0 win with Chancellor of the Dross, revealing 7 and draining for 21. As I was thinking about this, I realized: how does the mirror matchup work? The goal would be to go second, since your Chancellors would resolve first. Is there a way you can sideboard against this, or is it all up to the coin flip in game 1? If the Chancellor was a state-based action and did not use the stack (so you would each drain for 21 and nothing would happen), what would be your sideboard plan? Is there a Leyline or another ability that could save you against this deck?

Why Chancellor of the Dross? Soul Spike is horrible value, and Chancellor is too. You would be better off with Lava Spike, Grim Lavamancer, Fulminator Mage, Rift Bolt, Rakdos Charm, and Dreadbore mixed into the deck. At 18 lands I just don't see chancellor and soul spike giving you much to do without the pair being handy. I may be missing something though.

What about an even better illegal deck than this: 60 Chancellor of the Dross

Very nice adds to the vampire deck. Me, personally, I'll be cutting as much white as I can and focus on the red/black vampires. Berserkers' Onslaught and Rage Reflection are two possible adds, Blood Seeker, Bloodbond Vampire, Chancellor of the Dross, Gifted Aetherborn, and Whip of Erebos will probably go into my deck as well. I do like that Phyrexian Reclamation. Season of the Witch with Throne of the God-Pharaoh makes everyone play an aggro game with the clear advantage to you.
