Spell_Slam on Vaevictis Asmadi, the Budget

1 week ago

What's your budget? That would help people make appropriate suggestions.

Krosan Drover could get you to turn 4 Vaevictis (or many other things in your deck).

Harvester of Souls can be pretty good at getting you extra cards, especially with your Commander. Is it out of budget, though? It's a 2$ card.

Bloodgift Demon is a dirt-cheap Phyrexian Arena with a 5/4 flying body attached.

Haunted Crossroads lets you Reanimate fatties every turn with Vaevictis.

Omen of the Hunt lets you ramp and leaves behind either a Vaevictis target or can help find something better on top for your dragon to get back.

Lantern of Insight is 1.50$, but will let you make more informed decisions when deciding whether or not to attack with your Commander.

Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf are great ramp and you don't care about sacrificing them later.

Angeris a great thing to have in the graveyard. Haste on your creatures seems good, so Rhythm of the Wild and Garna, the Bloodflame could be interesting as well.

Looks like a great build! Not that you have to change anything really, but if it were my deck I would make these swaps:

  • Winds of Change for Burning Earth.

  • Night's Whisper for Harvester of Souls.

  • Defense Grid for Conqueror's Galleon  Flip. Defense Grid may protect you from instant tricks and counterspells, but it protects your opponents from those things too.

  • Price of Glory for Syr Konrad, the Grim. Same as Defense Grid.

  • Wurmcoil Engine for Knollspine Dragon. Wurmcoil is generically decent, but I think you could do better.

  • Ophiomancer for Dictate of the Twin Gods. Similar to Wurmcoil, Ophiomancer is always decent but I think there are more impactful things you could use instead.

  • Sanguine Bond for Kederekt Parasite. I think Sanguine Bond will be dead in hand much of the time. Also, even if you are gaining a ton of life, Sanguine Bond only hits one opp at a time, and it is not boosted by damage doublers.

  • Silent Arbiter for Fellwar Stone. I think you have enough mass creature removal that you don't need Silent Arbiter. Also Silent Arbiter stops your opponents from hitting each other hard.

  • Koskun Falls for Talisman of Indulgence. Similar to Silent Arbiter. Koskun Falls is great, but it actually forces you to tap down one of your blockers, and you don't have a ton of creatures to spare. By late game, opponents could just pay the 2 per attacker.

  • Blood Moon for Outpost Siege (Khans mode). Blood Moon is strong but it turns off all your cool lands.

Sulfuric Vortex comes to mind... I think it's probably better than Falkenrath Noble . Eidolon of the Great Revel , Harsh Mentor and other such duders also work.

I also think that if you cut a few of the more expensive cards (ex: Kaervek the Merciless , Ward of Bones ) for more mana ramp ( Rakdos Signet , Talisman of Indulgence ...) you can get away with running just around 31 or 32 lands. That'll free up some more slots for low-to-the-ground burn. Overall I think the deck would improve by a lot if you lowered the average CMC to something like 2 or 2.5.

I don't think very highly of Dash Hopes , to be honest. Maybe your experience has been different than mine, but in general people will be perfectly happy to pay 5 life for a significant spell. You're probably better off running something that generates card advantage, like Commune with Lava or Light Up the Stage . Gamble isn't really card advantage, but I think you should run it if only for the selection. Same goes for Faithless Looting .

Wheel of Fortune is amazing, although it's sitting around $100 these days. Reforge the Soul works as a more accessible replacement. Theater of Horrors is worth considering, too.

If you want a discard-style sub-theme (with your Geier Reach Sanitarium , Painful Quandary ...) Waste Not can be helpful.

Harvester of Souls works pretty well as a top-end, I think. It gets you cards when your opponents sac guys.

Right. That's all I got. Good luck.

Hey, already been suggested, but Vilis is amazing with Erebos. It's also amazing with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth because then you're drawing cards when paying Phyrexian mana (life) for black spells you cast. Vilis is a big upgrade for Harvester of Souls .

Some other upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.
