Slithering Shade Discussion

I'll give Smallpox a shot instead of Slithering Shade again (previous version had them in) for a bit but I'm pretty sold on Mutavault + Ensnaring Bridge being pretty useless with all the self discard.

The reason I like running Slithering Shade over Smallpox and Mutavault is that I find that rarely does Mutavault have the option to attack with Ensnaring Bridge if you're locking things up proper anyways and it allows me to run less lands overall for an already low to the ground deck. Having 4x Mutavault like most builds means more lands required since there lots of double Black spells in the deck. Smallpox isn't usually as good late game as Slithering Shade which allows me to put the extra lands to use and also chump block when needed early on. Having Smallpox means higher average CMC which means dumping more stuff to Liliana of the Veil +1 I thank you for the input and I may change things later on but I like how they preform at this time. :)

I think that Slithering Shade doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Something like Smallpox would fit better. You could use man-lands for additional win-cons so you don't have to waste 4 slots on a creature win-con. Something like Mutavault would work well for that additional win-con damage. It also dodges Smallpox .
