Sovereign's Bite Discussion

Malikin on NEED help for first FNM! Thank you!!

Nightveil Sprite is indeed a cheap and good addition to this deck. With so much surveiling going on, you might find success with Creeping Chill. When you dump it into the graveyard off of a surveil, it's essentially a free Sovereign's Bite. Also, Enhanced Surveillance may be an interesting addition here. Couldn't hurt to add a few more counters with Essence Scatter, Negate, and Syncopate either. Good luck!

Why isAbnormal Endurance in the maindeck? I'd suggest replacing it with Sovereign's Bite for maximum burn.

Resplendent Angel? I think you should have more Sovereign's Bite just to raise the consistency.

Sword-Point Diplomacy is getting swopped back out for Sovereign's Bite. I find that Sovereign's bite is not perticularly better than Sword-Point Diplomacy, which is a fine card. The reason I am going back though, is because I have run in to situations where I simply need to have a removal spell or a Vampire Sovereign in order to win, and then my opponent denies me the card that I specifically need and gives me a land and something else. I guess giving your opponent the choice, they will always choose what is "best" for them out of all of the "bad" options.

Sovereign's Bite is pretty bad, as it doesn't effect the board state; any X spell or similar is better. Consume Spirit, Drain Life, Tendrils of Corruption, Corrupt, etc

Sovereign's Bite needs to be a 4 of in here, its essentially the standard Lightning Helix

Alright, I have swopped out 2x Sovereign's Bite for 2x Sword-Point Diplomacy. Will see how that goes.

I have also bumped up the number of Memorial to Follys to 3x.

And finally I have swopped out the Vraska's Contempt from the sideboard and the Murder from the mainboard.

Since when was Sovereign's Bite a good card? I must be missing something. Anyways, 1x Cuombajj Witches and 2x Thorn of the Black Rose mainboard are both decent threats that cost under a buck.
