Yes you can go negative but you cannot pay into the negative with cards like Wall of Blood but you can get there with cards that allow you to lose life such as Spoils of the Vault. I don't have Angel's Grace because it doesn't protect me from the infect damage i will be taking once I have Phrexian Unlife out.

Argumentum Ad Nauseam is a bamf deck, me gusta muchos

thuzra on Blightsteel Colossus Turn Two? How About Turn One?

I like the concept, but Emrakul seems a bit... ah, slow? You know what I mean? Unless they're at 15 or less, Emrakul doesn't kill them, and then you have to rebuild a good hand. Blightsteel gets it done, however, so turn one is GG with that. If you need to increase your consistency, you might want to try Spoils of the Vault (which has a certain drawback) or add in Treasure Cruise for the long game.

Also, personally, while I realise it may be necessary, Brainspoil is nasty. Is there no better tutor? Like, I totally get it, and you can cast it, I guess, but holy shitballs, Batman, that's a tragic card.

Also, how often do you Polymorph what, exactly, into one of the bigguns? Are you casting SSG? And how often do you 'morph into monkey-brain? So many questions!

I'm considering if I can make this work with black tutors instead of blue draw. If I did I would likely take out 4 Thought Scour and add 3 Spoils of the Vault and 1 Beseech the Queen. This way I could have a turn 1 play to fetch Waste Not and all the black mana from Waste Not definitely would help to fuel a Beseech the Queen for either a Pyromancer Ascension, Grapeshot, Past in Flames or just another Waste Not. It is dangerous to play storm without the consistency of drawing cards, but hey, what's a Rakdos deck without a little spice?

Yep, you sure can :) Though this deck doesn't really need it with the amount of cards you can dig through with Spoils of the Vault and Plunge into Darkness.

How does Spoils of the Vault work on this deck?

Thanks!

Unfortunately no, because you can't pay life you don't have, even if you wouldn't lose because of it. :P If I'm at 1, I can't cast Apostle's Blessing by paying the Phyrexian white cost, for example. However, life loss isn't damage, so I can cast Spoils of the Vault and go to a negative life total for a card if I have the Phyrexian Unlife out.
