Gonti, Lord of Luxury

Legendary Creature — Aetherborn Rogue

Deathtouch

When Gonti, Lord of Luxury enters the battlefield, look at the top four cards of target opponent's library, exile one of them face down, then put the rest on the bottom of that library in a random order. For as long as that card remains exiled, you may look at it, you may cast it, and your may spend mana as though it were mana of any type to cast it.

@apohl13, Absolutely! The thing I love about the list is that it's very flexible and you can remove pieces that are less important to you very easily. Here are some one's I'd recommend looking at if you want to find room for Pentavus

  • Avalanche Riders - if you don't have much need for land destruction in your meta, this is easily replaceable. It can be a wincon in and of itself, but I know some people really like to avoid LD altogether

  • Corpse Connoisseur - I go back and forth on this card a lot. Sometimes it's amazing with a recursion engine active, and sometimes it's just an Anger fetcher. Either way, I tend to stick with it cause I like it, but I could see arguments for skipping it.

  • Gonti, Lord of Luxury - fun card that makes use of your opponent's decks, but isn't necessarily needed. Though he can be a nice backup wincon with infinite mana and a Digger Loop.

  • Pilgrim's Eye - one of the weaker mana ramp flips.

Hope that gives you some good replacement ideas. And as you mentioned, Kitesail Freebooter isn't a good replacement since you can't abuse the ETB/LTB trigger like you can with Mesmeric Fiend to permanently remove every players hand at instant speed.

I just found this out with my deck but if you add in Gonti, Lord of Luxury with the felidar, oath of teferi combo you can exile your opponents entire library!

Hey SamsWrath. I hadn't thought about Bob! I like the idea of draw strapped onto a creature given Grenzo's obvious strengths. Also considering Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Phyrexian Rager.

coolmaster82: I'm still not sold on restoration angel due to it's limited applicability to creatures only. You are right about parallax wave in both instances. It all depends on what's in play at that time. If Altar of the Brood is in play, guardian and wave is all I need. If Gonti, Lord of Luxury is in play, then I would need the full suite to win.

SynergyBuild: Nexus of Fate is intriguing because it has a pretty steep CMC but it does increases the number of ways the deck can win. I might test it out just to see how it goes.

You have two Fellwar Stone listed in your list FYI.

Also you should definitely add in Necropotence, Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Mystical Tutor, and Vampiric Tutor. Other fun cards that can be considered: Equilibrium, Capsize, Notion Thief, Gonti, Lord of Luxury.

Hope that helps!

If you're looking for stronger ramp, you can upgrade the Golgari artifacts and some of the random non-elf creatures into Elves of Deep Shadow, more Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic or Golgari Signet.

If you go further down the elf-ramp path, you can start playing more synergistic cards like Masked Admirers, which you can sacrifice to Vraska the Unseen's ability and get back later. Deathtouch creatures in general work well with the other Vraskas, blocking very well and needing to be blocked when you get close to ultimate territory.

If you're trying to ultimate as quickly as possible, Doubling Season is expensive (but also probably the cheapest it's been in years right now) but irreplaceable. With that on the battlefield, if you resolve any planeswalker it comes in with twice the counters, often letting you ultimate immediately. The proliferate route, while keeping your Vraska's protected, is next-best. Clasp is a great card, and Plaguemaw Beast could be a synergistic consideration.

The best way to protect a planeswalker once it's on the battlefield is by removing your opponent's threats, and this deck could use some pieces of removal broader than Naturalize. Putrefy or Status / Statue is a terrific budget alternative to something like Assassin's Trophy or Maelstrom Pulse, while Cast Down is a cheap way to take down most creatures. Ravenous Chupacabra kills a creature while leaving a body on the board to attack, block, or get sacrificed to be brought back with Golgari Findbroker and such. Find / Finality does double duty of recurring your creatures when your planeswalkers aren't being threatened, and wiping the board when you're behind.

As for keeping your planeswalkers in steady supply if you're pinched due to literal supply, Nature's Spiral is a good addition. Yawgmoth's Vile Offering is another very powerful alternative, but you would likely need to run many more legendary creatures in order to consistently cast it. Some options: Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, Isareth the Awakener, Marwyn, the Nurturer (who is also terrific ramp if you go the Elf route), Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Rishkar, Peema Renegade (who also is great with your proliferate effects), or my personal favorite Gonti, Lord of Luxury.
