Shadowstorm Vizier Discussion

Thanks for the suggestions happygilmore511. The reason why I don't have Glimpse the Unthinkable is because it costs almost as much as my entire deck. As a general rule, I don't like to spend more than $7-$10 for any one card in the deck. I will definitely need to pick up 4 of the Mind Funeral. I will get rid of Shadowstorm Vizier. Like I said in my description, this deck needs a lot of help. Your suggestions have started me in the right direction. Thanks!

Hey, consider adding or using a Favorable Winds secondary strategy either main deck or sideboard transformation? It could be good for midrange matchups where you can go over the top of the large ground creatures such as Dinos or Temur Energy.

Thanks for the input. I've tried running full playsets of Shadowstorm Vizier but unfortunately they don't tend to perform very well due to their susceptibility to Fatal Push and Grasp of Darkness (I think it's called.)
Drake haven is cool, I haven't used it yet since I only have one copy. It's definitely in the maybe pile.
I've also tried New Perspectives, but for better or worse my games are usually over before I drew into it (though I only have two of them.) I personally don't find it to be worth the cost when it does go off. But it's also something I'll continue to tinker with.
The apoc demon is actually one of my star performers. I usually don't play him until I've got 10 or so cards in the graveyard, and with a little planning I've always been able to swing with him, thanks to the sarcophagus letting me bring back creatures from the graveyard to sac on my following turn.
I've also run playsets of the Sphinx, but like shadowstorm it's susceptible to fatal push and grasp, and usually doesn't end up being worth the casting cost vs keeping it open for control and other shenanigans on the opponents turn.

I would recommend running a playset of Drake Haven over the sorcery you have. It gives you bodies on the field with evasion that can be used as surprise blockers. Shadowstorm Vizier is also a good choice, similar in effect to the UR uncommon from Oath, except it's discard as opposed to prowess. Finally, a couple copies of New Perspectives to ensure that you can close the game by turn 7 with a handful of drake tokens and the vizier. You can also try running Curator of Mysteries to help fish for your wincons.
Apocalypse Demon is never going to work in this because there aren't any creatures to sacrifice to make him a threat.

The Black version of Noose Constrictor as far as a discard enabler is Olivia's Dragoon. It doesn't get bigger but Flying is nice. Another powerhouse discard enabler in Black is Collective Brutality which is a solid magic card in any Black deck. I love how it interacts well with Alms of the Vein as well. If you do splash a third color, Red is the one that will give you the most discard power. Here's a solid list of enablers:
Cathartic Reunion, Tormenting Voice, Collective Defiance, Fateful Showdown, Bomat Courier, Nahiri's Wrath and I'm sure there's more. You could then also throw in Fiery Temper. Personally I'd stick to two colors, though.
I just finished a deck that wanted to showcase Shadowstorm Vizier and it has a ton of potential. Fun building exercise since it turns Izzet Prowess on its head.
Good luck :)
