Evacuation Discussion

Nice deck, I do have a few suggestions though.

Reconnaissance - 2nd post dedicated entirely to this card.

Scapegoat helps recover from hard to dodge wraths like tuck, exile, -X-X, and sac. I'd rather eat a personal Evacuation than be in topdeck mode. This card also doubles as a finisher with Purphoros. Boros Charm is nice too with you seeing lots of boardwipes.

Diabolic Intent - Demonic Tutor #2 here.

As far as cuts go... I'm not a fan of either Door of Destinies or Cathars' Crusade here. Both do nothing for your current board, cost a shit ton of mana for an aggro deck, and require gas after you play them. The 2 Sorin Bloodlords seem really underwhelming also.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Cool deck. Definitely a +1 from me.

I think a big weakness to these types of decks is dying to combat damage as you've already acknowledged in the description. I'd recommend more general control. What I mean by that is more board wipes and rift type effects like Damnation , Evacuation , Darkness , Flood of Tears , Engulf the Shore , Whelming Wave , etc.

Barbarian_Sun_Pope I love the idea of splashing W (Jeskai is my jam). Rule of Law looks right up my alley, I'm adding that to the Maybeboard and will be working that in soon. Interaction, I've taken in BCN_BuildsDecks 's suggestion and adding Lightning Bolt cuz ya gotta do what ya gotta do ya know. AEtherize looks great as well. I think after a couple of games I'll be able to tell more easily if I can get away with a cheaper bounce effect or need to go up to Evacuation .

Sweet deck, I used to run U/W Netsuke deck focused around limiting the number of spells they can play. Have you considered Deafening Silence , Aura of Silence , or Rule of Law . These should be pretty cheap, easy to splash in, and allows for easier countering. Paradox Haze could also speed things up considerably. I do agree with Riskybiznu that there's not enough interaction in this deck, you might consider AEtherize or even Evacuation since you have very very few creatures and it keeps their hand full =).

Sorin, Solemn Visitor 's +1 is until your next turn. That massive lifegain is needed to fuel card draw. It's also insanely good with Reconnaissance because you swung with a whole team of lifelinkers and that whole team is untapped, ready to block, and still has lifelink. Other Sorin only effects 1 target and wants fatty vamps to discount... which the deck runs sparingly.

I also just noticed you run Purphoros. Scapegoat can be an anti wrath tech or you can use it to bounce your board back to your hand to murder everyone with Purphoros. It dodges tuck, exile, sac, -X-X, and other hard to dodge wraths. I'd rather sac a token and eat a personal Evacuation than be in topdeck mode.

As far as cuts go...

Door of Destinies- Doesn't do anything for your current board and it essentially requires gas to do anything after.

Malakir Bloodwitch - Meh... pro white is the best part.

Night's Whisper - One time draw isn't worth a slot.

Painful Truths - You have 2x listed... drop both.

Legion's Landing - Only needed like 1 out of every 5 games.

Sorin - See above. Single targets for all abilities and underwhelming.

2 lands - You've got a really low avg. cmc. 33 should work great. Probably drop checklands.
