Ragged Veins Discussion

You could try using cards like Kindle the Carnage and Nahiri's Wrath, along with some big CMC cards as a combo kill with your creatures. Kind of like the old Ragged Veins/Spiteful Shadows combo decks.

You can make it modern if you're ok moving into black. Ragged Veins and Spiteful Shadows do the same thing as repurcussion, but for only one creature. Granted, when you're doing 15 damage, you probably don't need all that many times for the effect to go off. If you do go into black, Canyon Slough is a reasonable, although not great, replacement for forgotten cave. I'd move over to snow lands as someone else suggested, both so that you can run skred (which can be used to hit a creature for 8 for 1 mana and kill your opponent with one of the auras) and so that Extraplanar Lens doesn't benefit your opponent. Scrying Sheets can also help dig for your combo. To help survive, I'd run Blood Moon, even if you go two colors, because it can significantly hamper the more color intensive control and midrange decks that your deck will struggle against. To deal with aggro, you should probably replace some of the worse burn (Shock, Lightning Strike) with board clears like Anger of the Gods/Sweltering Suns or Damnation, assuming you go to black. Batterskull might be a consideration as an alternate win condition and a way to gain life after form is out. Like the idea.

I like Ragged Veins over Contaminated Bond for this deck. You're going to have a lot of high power creatures with low toughness so Contaminated Bond will trigger for 3. As long as your creature's power is higher than 3 Ragged Veins will have more impact. The downside with Ragged Veins is that first strike can mean no damage if your toughness is not high enough. The split covers you in both situations so hopefully you get the card you need in the right situation?

I stumbled across this list looking for ideas for my own Ragged Veins / Harvest Pyre combo deck, and so I've also been looking for solutions to the creatureless opponent problem. I'm not sure my search was as extensive as it could have been, but I've only found 2 cards of interest. Unfortunately, one is green, and the other is white.
Funeral Pyre is sweet because it's instant, but unfortunately, it's a pretty useless card.
Wild Dogs can at least cycle, but it does need to survive until your upkeep, which against a deck like teachings doesn't seem too likely

Janky is one thing, but this is just going out of its way to be convoluted! Just go with Ragged Veins, Spiteful Shadows or Stuffy Doll instead. Blasphemous Act can also nearly kill an opponent and is much easier to play, depending on how cluttered the board gets.

What about just putting Ragged Veins on one of their creatures?

The bane of all modern brewers strikes again.
(Cards that do the same thing, but more effectively :P)
Boros Reckoner + random stupid red removal spell (like Skred, Lightning Axe, Blasphemous Act... etc.
(If you fancy using an aura to redirect damage, you can play Ragged Veins - which comes at instant speed, thus you can play around removal and counterspells more easily)
