Spoils of the Vault Discussion

Sigil of the New Dawn is very nice, because, despite its low price, it has never been reprinted, and the new artwork looks great.
I am not particularly pleased about the reprint of Containment Priest, because I feel that that card is too inexpensive for such a powerful effect (it really should have cost 3 or 4 mana for that effect).
Angel of Despair is one of my favorite angles in the game, so her being reprinted is always nice; I would have preferred to see her with new artwork, but her current artwork is so awesome that there is no real need to replace it. Why was she demoted to an uncommon? She is far too powerful to be anything less than a rare, in my mind.
Ertai, the Corrupted would also look very nice in the new frame style, as well.
I did not realize that Vengevine had become so expensive, so it being reprinted in this set is very nice, indeed.

Both players must pass priority in order for each item on the stack to resolve, and they must do it for each item (not just once for the whole stack).
So with Karn on the stack, you respond with, say, Spoils of the Vault, naming Pact of Negation. Your opponent must pass priority in order for it to resolve, at which point you do the digging. Assuming you don't die, you now have Pact of Negation in hand, with Karn still on the stack. Your opponent is the active player, so they receive priority again and pass it to try to resolve Karn. You can then respond with Pact of Negation to counter Karn.

Say for example:
It is your opponents turn four and they cast main phase Karn Liberated. Could you in response: cast Ad Nauseam and/or Spoils of the Vault and dig until you find Pact of Negation and then counter their Karn? (Assuming you don't die in the process)
Once Ad Nauseam and/or Spoils resolves, priority would then shift back to the opposing player and at that moment would Karn just resolve? Or would Karn still stay in question on the stack, and would priority again shift back to myself, allowing me to cast Pact of Negation?
My thinking is no, it is not possible to do counter Karn this way but just want to be sure.

I just want to say that I was the first one to comment on this. :) what is Spoils of the Vault for?

No worries! We all make mistakes and I love the opportunity to explain some of the math behind choosing to play City of Brass over Spire of Industry in this deck specifically. All the best to you!! Thanks again for the comments!
The Laboratory Maniac + Spoils of the Vault kill is insane! It's really hard to pull off and removal can really mess you up if you are not prepared for it, but when it works the look on an opponent's face when they lose to Ad Nauseam without the card Ad Nauseam being cast is very satisfying. Most Ad Nauseam players I find can forget this line so good on that player for realizing it was his best option. Can you link the gameplay here? I'm always looking for a good spoils kill. Also, just as an aside, I always name Rowdy Crew when going for the spoils kill, just in case you were wondering. I'm sure you already understand how this works but until I put it in the description of the deck I'll quickly explain how it works for people passing through: basically like Ad Nauseam Spoils of the Vault causes loss of life as opposed to damage allowing us to go deep in the negatives. Thanks for pointing this out, its one of the cooler more unexpected things the deck can do!

Just saw some insane gameplay with the deck, they had Phrexian Unlife out, it was turn four. Lotus Bloom came off of suspend, but they had no Ad Nauseam, they didn't have a land drop either. I thought they would Spoils of the Vault for Ad Nauseam, since they had two of those and a Serum Visions, but instead they named Laboratory Maniac, then Borborygmos, cast the Laboratory Maniac, and with 1 mana left from the bloom the Serum Visions won the game!
