I don't know how crazy I am about Ritual of Soot in this deck it literally wipes all of your creatures as well... What about Golden Demise, might do a better job protecting you from Red Agro 1 turn sooner and doesn't effect any creature you care about.

How do you normally win with this deck? It seems like if your opponent can deal with Doom Whisperer and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip you're kind of dead in the water, hoping to top-deck removal spells.

You probably don't need 4x Disinformation Campaigns, and I personally don't see the merit of Dead Weight in any deck running board wipes like Ritual of Soot or Golden Demise. You could cut 2x Campaign, both Weights, 2x Vraska's Contempt, and add in some cheaper, single-target removal like Cast Down, Murder, Lava Coil or Fight with Fire.

I've had a lot of success running Gilded Lotus - I put it in every midrange deck, if possible. Playing a Lotus on Turn 5 still leaves up mana for a Murder, Sinister Sabotage, Golden Demise, Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin, etc. I've also really enjoyed running a couple Tetzimoc, Primal Deaths, as he gives you something to sink excess mana into and he usually forces your opponent to play more reserved.

I would also cut down on 2x Discovery / Dispersal and 1x Search for Azcanta  Flip, put in 1x Connive / Concoct and 2x Chemister's Insight/Dark Bargain/Notion Rain.

I would also add in Shocks and/or Lightning Strikes, but I think I'm turning this into my old Grixis Midrange I played when Tamiyo, the Moon Sage was in Standard. 6 years ago. Damn... where does the time go? TELL ME.

Golden Demise is a nice Vraska themed card, and easily made one sided.

Fatal Push should be a one of in a deck with so many better options. Maelstrom Pulse, Victim of Night, Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy are all better spot removal. I could see running 2 Fatal Push but that's all I would be comfortable running.

I like Desecration Demon if you can keep up enough removal. As long as they have no creatures left at the beginning of combat, it's a crazy fast clock with evasion.

Ritual of Soot looks better than Golden Demise if you're looking to deal with aggro go wides. Especially since it doesn't hit your big finishers. Try swapping Tasigur, the Golden Fang for Phyrexian Obliterator.

I like adding Carnage Tyrant to the sideboard. I was struggling to keep creatures on the board unless I get perfect mana and a Thought Erasure in my opening hand. Once they're ready to play Niv-Mizzet, Parun it felt like the match up was just over. I've been playing on MTG Arena recently and it works out well against most match ups. I'm also loving Golden Demise. I was trying to run 2x Find / Finality since I felt like I needed more board clear against token angels. I also think running 4xThought Erasure is to much but only because I love the 2xConnive / Concoct. It really helps keep a strong board presence popping Golgari Findbroker back and picking up a Thief of Sanity or Plaguecrafter depending on what I need at the time. It also really helps pull The Eldest Reborn back again and again. It's a good feeling.

Golden Demise, perhaps? I know its a little situational.

Overall a very solid deck, though you might want to consider replacing Feral Abomination with Tetzimoc, Primal Death, and Skittering Heartstopper with Isareth the Awakener. Tetzimoc, Primal Death, while legendary, is stronger, and it's ability in your hand can be useful against any non-control deck. Isareth the Awakener can help in the grindier games by allowing you to return other creatures that have already died. Also for grindier games, Find / Finality and Golgari Findbroker are worth consideration in the sideboard. Also Golden Demise/Mephitic Vapors/Ritual of Soot in the sideboard for tokens would be pretty good.

As far as budget options, the Statue portion of Status / Statue takes care of most permanents. Cast Down/Walk the Plank will work pretty well against most decks, though Murder is a better creature catchall. And maybe sideboard Plaguecrafter or The Eldest Reborn for planeswalkers. Golgari Guildgate and Foul Orchard can replace Woodland Cemetery and Overgrown Tomb, but then your deck won't be very competitive.

Hi tdmurrel, thank you for your feedback. Your group sounds like a fun bunch of people. I've been considering dropping Vraska's Scorn for a while now. It is noticeably the weakest card in the deck. However I've been strict on myself in maintaining a "Vraska" theme to the deck, so I only wanted to replace it with another "Vraska card", so to speak. I've decided to swap in Costly Plunder in its place, since it features Vraska on the card art. Another option is Golden Demise, but that appears to have counter synergy with the early creatures in the deck. Please let me know your thoughts on this.
