Thanks. I'll defiantly think about Spoils of the Vault . It can easily loose me some games, so I might find a way to get Pay No Heed in or some other damage prevention. I will test out Silence , but it doesn't help for spells they already cast.

Demonic Tutor and Cruel Tutor would be nice if they were legal. Diabolic Tutor is an interesting deck idea that would help get the combo pieces. However Spoils of the Vault already helps us find our combo pieces while losing us a good amount of life which defiantly helps.

Wow you made that way more complicated than it needs to be and even made it not work unless you are running a purely singleton deck.

If you want to FORCE this to work you would need to have Laboratory Maniac out, Spoils of the Vault on your upkeep naming a card that isn't in the deck, and Angel's Grace on top of Spoils of the Vault . This would allow you to win using those 2 cards but is incredibly fragile, in 3 colors, and requires 3 specific cards.

with Angel's Grace some sort of scry trigger like Serum Visions , and a draw ability you could do it. so you would cast Angel's Grace , then play Serum Visions , srcy both srcy triggers to the bottom, play Spoils of the Vault naming the second to last card, draw your deck, play Laboratory Maniac then something like divination and you win.

Complicated but you could make it work.

Use double hard brackets to link cards, not curly brackets.
Spoils of the Vault
Laboratory Maniac

No, that combo doesn't work. Laboratory Maniac requires you to draw a card from an empty library and at no time do you draw during the resolution of Spoils of the Vault . As such you lose to the SBA of having 0 or less life before you ever have the chance to draw from an empty library.

I'm pretty sure Spoils of the Vault would kill me every time, though. Demonic Consultation on the other hand, seems like a great card to add in, and I found it from looking up SotV, so thank you emask. Price
