mtg, mtg cards, magic the gathering, gaming, geeks
Name a card. Reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal the named card, then put that card into your hand. Remove all other cards revealed this way from the game, and you lose 1 life for each of the removed cards.
Spoils of the Vault is a thing too.
...and I think you're right, you would have to take out vital stuff to make more room. Truthfully you could do another Thoughtseize and be alright.
I've been tinkering with a suicide deck and I think Spoils of the Vault will make an appearance...
Obviously this would require splashing but Phyrexian Unlife could make your Spoils of the Vault super safe, and if you do go negative from it (it loses life so you won't get any poison counters) then you would pump your Death's Shadow . You could even chain Spoils of the Vault to make home a 50/50 swing for the win if your opponent tapped out and won't be playing any pacts or other "free kill spells"
You attack with your shadows. If your opponent doesn't block at least one of your shadow. Before combat damage is dealt you cast Spoils of the Vault and keep priority, then you cast Angel's Grace . When Spoils of the Vault resolves, you name Rampant Growth , exile your library, your unblocked shadows are about 40/40. Why this is not synery in your opinion?
Well this is epic. Awesome job!
Too bad Abyssal Persecutor
You have a full sideboard to work with still... Me wonders what Death's Shadow would be like in a deck like this. Not ETB, but heck, might work nicely if you bone yourself with Spoils of the Vault ...
Anyways, I love it. Awesome and unique, +1
Spoils of the Vault and Plunge into Darkness don't synergize with Angel's Grace at all because Angel's Grace doesn't prevent loss of life, only damage. Both of those cards don't deal damage. They'll be good with Phyrexian Unlife , but since they will require too much life, I can't use them without Phyrexian Unlife . I say this because after using them, I have put myself at a serious disadvantage as it wouldn't take much to finish me off. Thusly, it kinda defeats the purpose of a tutor if I need the card I want to to tutor to be able to tutor that card.
And not to mention Phyrexian Unlife , tho' Plunge into Darkness doesn't work that well with either, as you can't pay life you don't have, but it's still really great, see it as a smaller Spoils of the Vault ~
