Sovereign's Bite Discussion

Thank you! Yeah Sygg is very fun to build around. As far as lands count, I've never really been in need of more, and I never want to see more than three in my opening hand. The engine runs on 2 colored mana sources, and after the first few turns (once I've played around the opponent's opening salvos) the added card draw provides the additional mana. I haven't ever used black drain spells in the 6 or so years I've been running this deck. They just seem slow compare to the strategy I've always employed - 1 CMC creature with P2, and then either Sygg turn 2 or a 2 CMC P3 beater, depending on the tempo situation. Sovereign's Bite is on-curve but if I'm tapping for 2 whole mana I'd rather a permanent that I can repeatedly get Sygg triggers off.

Nice deck ! I always wanted to try building a Sygg deck too :) First of all, seeing your curve and the draw you have on Sygg you should try 37or 38 lands. Have you try some burn 3 black spells ? That's the build I have in mind for a long time. I'm sure cards like Loyal Subordinate (especially him) or even Sovereign's Bite, Gonti's Machinations, Shrieking Affliction or Prying Questions could be questionably good (and budget :p).

Mirror of Fate could be neat here. It lets you reuse cards exiled by Yawgmoth's Will. You can even recur the Mirror itself this way. There is a wombo combo here alongside Will + Bolas's Citadel + Tendrils of Agony . Not that you need another combo haha. But it could be fun to switch things up if you get tired of Glacial + Dreams, or wanna keep your opponents on their toes.
These cards seem like they might have a home here or in a similar build: Necropotence , Soul Spike , Spinning Darkness , Blood Tithe , Sorin's Vengeance , Sovereign's Bite , K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth , Skirge Familiar

For mono-red... maybe cut a pestilence and/or a shrivel from the sideboard for a bit of early-game lifegain? (Im thinkin like Shadowfeed or Sovereign's Bite ) Just to get you through to the midrange where you can stabalize with Inheritance and Gary. Also seems like it might just be a bad matchup.

I would get rid of Vicious Conquistador , Fungal Infection , and Sovereign's Bite . Maybe you could use some things from your maybe board, but Discovery / Dispersal , Cast Down , and Fight with Fire (for Lyra) have a place here?
