Geth's Verdict Discussion

I like Geth's Verdict here but I'm not sure what to replace. Love the concept though, even if I can't make myself play a creatureless deck.

Firs things coming to mind would be replacing Reassembling Skeleton with Gravecrawler and Geth's Verdict with Victim of Night. You might want to consider Hangarback Walker too.

Consistency is king and sadly you have a lot of 1x and not many 4x, I'm sure you can guess my first suggestion is run more 4x of cards, you also seem to have some vampire synergy so...

You probably want 4x Asylum Visitor to replace the Blood Scrivener's since it's a vamp. I'd also suggest, 2-3x of Indulgent Aristocrat as sacrifice outlet that pumps your other vampires. However creatures weren't really the issue here.

Your spells, 16 sorcery and instants all of them singles, it just isn't a good idea. 16 is a nice number though being 4x4, so my suggestion is; 4x Duress, 4x Geth's Verdict and 4x Flaying Tendrils (ok, 3x use your 1x Damnation), finally I'm going to break from that suggestion as I assume you only have 1 of some of these cards so; 1x Inquisition of Kozilek 1x Thoughtseize 1x Consuming Vapors and 1x Fatal Push this means you have a more focused removal and discard package. If you have them I'd run 2x Inquisition of Kozilek and 2x Fatal Push but it depends on your card pool.

Ratta Tat Tat Tat. Dont forget Pack Rat!

Lands:

Swarmyard seems perfect too.

Some more tribal/creature pump:

Metallic Mimic for counters on all of your rats and Adaptive Automaton for a similar lord effect. Akroma's Memorial, Stoneforge Masterwork, Eldrazi Monument, Bad Moon

Answers:

Attrition, Eliminate the Competition, Mutilate

Card Draw:TBD!!!

Ramp:

Liliana of the Dark Realms, Sol Ring, Black Market

Rat Creature Options:

Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Crypt Rats, Throat Slitter, Patron of the Nezumi, Plague of Vermin, Pack Rat

INFECT:

Ichor Rats, Septic Rats

Potential Cuts (In my opinion):

Prototype Portal Confused on why this is here. Rhystic Tutor Will almost always be countered in multiplayer. Geth's Verdict Better options for targeted removal Murder Howling Mine Black doesnt want to help everyone. Phyrexian Arena FTW.

Bile Blight is bonker in multiple ways because it performs very well against different archetypes. But on the other hand.. 4 sideboard slots for spot removal (if counting Collective Brutality.. which is nuts against many decks) as well as triple mass removal does not seem right. Although every single card deserves its slot I wonder whether this is the right path.

I agree to not cut Geth's Verdict but what's about the 4th Collective Brutality? I felt like after sideboard our matchup against burn is much in our favor. Collective Brutality is very good against elves as well but this matchup is much easier after boarding anyways. What decks desperately need a 4th Brutality? Abzan Company for sure. Combo? Maybe (wave @Giftstorm decks). But apart from that?

I know how insanely good Collective Brutality can be, especially with extra cards from Arena or flooded lands. Just gonna discuss this card.

Fulminator Mage is indeed a strong card but during the last period of matches I felt that I don't really needed him too much (none against Eldrazi Tron though :P). Maybe because I never ever had a chance for multiple land destruction effects in a single game.. I will see and at the end of the day I'll probably add him anyways.

I played Bile Blight main deck some while ago but since my local meta decided to go all in on Tron, Death Shadow and such I swapped them entirely for Geth's Verdict. I often try to think out of the box but putting back in one Blight as 1-of sideboard card.. might be the right decision probably.

Personally I already took out Fulminator Mage after testing it because he felt like not enough impact overall (taking into consideration that it's only a single sideboard card). I Played with Stony Silence for a while which did not convince me as well. Maybe I'm just too picky about my valuable sideboard slots..

I can still see Bile Blight > Pithing Needle. Maybe I cut my Needle and Stony Silence for Bile Blight and Fulminator Mage as well.. but as you described those are indeed a desperate man's choices ;).

I'm enough tired of Lingering Souls that I'm considering sideboarding Bile Blight. Bile Blight has always been a great removal spell; I played it extensively in my Dimir control list (now outdated and requiring updates), and was always impressed by its performance against Affinity, Burn, Merfolk, GWx decks with multiple Birds of Paradise/Voice of Resurgence, and so on. I declined to include it in this list because of Thought-Knot Seer and co., Death's Shadow, Tarmogoyf, Primeval Titan, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet ... you get the idea.

But despite the card no longer being maindeckable, it may still have its place in the sideboard. Its potential to be a blow-out for the cheap cheap cost of two is downright absurd, and I have to admit, I miss having clean answers to tokens (the aforementioned Dimir list also had Engineered Explosives and Black Sun's Zenith).

Yet, the edict is so important in the form of Geth's Verdict against otherwise impossible/difficult to kill creatures (Geist of Saint Traft, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Thrun, the Last Troll, Kira, the Great Glass-Spinner, Etched Champion, Slippery Bogle) that I am loath to go below two of; so, a non-removal spell would have to be the cut.

While I have enjoyed both Pithing Needle and Fulminator Mage, one of them might have to go.
