Necrotesque on Is Ad Nauseam Even Viable?

1 day ago

In a "full blown smash face aggro" Ad naus is well positioned since it has 4 instant speed time walks in the form of Angel's Grace. Yes it has a poor match up against infect but other than that it's a great deck. It usually pack 4 Leyline of Sanctity against discard since it is indeed another weakness, but either Mystical Teachings or Spoils of the Vault can go get what they need and you lose on the spot. A friend of mine plays Ad Naus as his only modern deck and I lost to it many times piloting Affinity, Storm and to a lesser extent, Living End. I did also win many times against it, the deck is not perfect, but it's a cool deck to have in the format.

Well as for the Spoils of the Vault I usually dig for my combo piece i am missing. Or use it to mill the rest of my deck. The cards actually react in weird ways. Say I do have Phyrexian Unlife and a Death's Shadow Out with nothing but the Spoils of the Vault in hand, I use it to search for Rite of Consumption In order to fling the Death's Shadow at my opponent. A few things the keep in mind here, Spoils of the Vault Makes me LOSE LIFE, so it does not give me infect counters and allows me to go negative. Death's Shadow actually gets more power if I go negative, so if i have those three pieces out (Death's Shadow, Phyrexian Unlife, and a Rite of Consumption in hand) I will declare a card not in my deck, such as Island and Mill the rest of my deck, going negative, and flinging a 50 some odd creature at my opponent!

Another thing is because Spoils of the Vault does indeed say lose life, i can not use Angel's Grace to keep myself above 0 as I wouldn't be taking damage. Same for if i was already below 0.

I am actually interested in Dash Hopes at least for sideboard tech but I am a tad sceptical as to I usually kill with one hit, either from the above mentioned fling, or by buffing the Death's Shadow until it is a 40/40 and swing with protection Via Faith's Shield

Recently my play group has been getting pretty good at making me watch myself with Enchantment destruction though, so the Indestructibility are going into sideboard Immediately.But again because this deck usually wins with the Fling or swing combo so Phyrexian Unlife is usually only there when i need it.

Really appreciate the suggestions!

I love this type of deck. Great job. Check out my unlife style deck builds if you get a chance and see if they give you any ideas or maybe you could give me some tips. Be livin' that Unlife and No Life is a Good Life

I would personally want more protection for the Phyrexian Unlife so I think a couple of Indestructibilitys would be good but you may feel they would slow you down too much which I would understand.

Also, I love the addition of Spoils of the Vault to get your life down and pull something good but I am curious what you would target. Another Death's Shadow? And What happens if you pull cards with it past 30 life and you have no Angel's Grace in your hand? If that is a concern of yours maybe a couple Lich's Mirrors or Platinum Angels could help. They are expensive but they could be lifesavers.

Surgical Extraction is also a good choice. I like Dash Hopes for protection as well because it is defensive if they accept it as a counterspell and offensive if they don't: win/win.

Very cool deck! +1!
