Mastermind's Acquisition Discussion
2 days ago
you can play Thalia's Lancers instead of Mastermind's Acquisition because you can only choose the first effect in edh and it will be better to have a creature to protect you planeswalker with this tuto effect.
Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain will let you draw A LOT of card.
Fuel for the Cause can be a good counter spell for this deck.
Yawgmoth's Vile Offering is really useful.
I tried to recommand you card that are not too much expensive.
Good luck ^^

Mastermind's Acquisition to save labmaniac if exiled with the first effect of Demonic Consultation?

I was online and looking for random decks that I could playtest my deck for the new set against. I will tell you that that your deck gave me a run for my money and in the end I relied on my Mission Briefing and Mastermind's Acquisition to bounce Assassin's Trophy around in order to clear your board of Revel in Riches . In the end the game came down to the fact that your win condition only activated at the start of your turn, and that gave me the leeway I needed to ulti Jace. Wielder of Mysteries and win the game.
I must thank you for the great deck you have and ask that I return the favour to allow you to use my deck, Mangled Mentality for your future playtests.
PS. My deck is still being somewhat tweaked so the decklist may change from time to time. Also, I beat your deck from a position of which I was mana screwed.

I would change Murder for Never / Return , they do the same, but the later can affect Pw and gets recursion. Diabolic Tutor would also go in place of Mastermind's Acquisition , and would replace some copies of Alms of the Vein with Ill-Gotten Inheritance .
Side boarding some “Hand Destruction” and “Removal” spells would be a good idea as well.

Vampire Nocturnus is nice but i would not play it in a deck were it is only active less than half the time. I also agree with redbird with the other drops.
an added bonus about dropping Vampire Nocturnus , Vanquisher's Banner and Mastermind's Acquisition it significantly drops your curve making your only 4 drop sorin and no 5 drops allowing you to reduce your land count by 2 or 3.

Nocturnus is bad in a three color deck. Vanquisher's Banner , Night's Whisper , and Mastermind's Acquisition all seem unnecessary. In lieu of those spells I would suggest Inquisition of Kozilek , Terminate , and another Stromkirk Captain . I also really like Bloodghast in this kind of build as he's hard to remove and benefits nicely from all your tribal synergies. Another card I might suggest would be Legion's Landing Flip.
Your sideboard looks super janky. I'd suggest 4x Leyline of the Void 2x Stony Silence 2x Anguished Unmaking 2x Celestial Purge and then some combination of Fulminator Mage and or Crumble to Dust to deal with lands. Settle the Wreckage and Extirpate are fine but may not be needed with Leyline. Dreadbore is also a good sideboard option.

I'm a big fan of Vampire Nighthawk . I might add another. I might also add Vampire Cutthroat 4 copies. I'd drop Mastermind's Acquisition , Vampire Nocturnus , and Night's Whisper to make room. I hope this helped.
