a neat party trick ive seen with Vexing Devil is to run Torpor Orb for a 1CMC 4/3 in the control matchup (also hoses Snapcaster Mage ).... Assault Strobe can also be powerful here with these creatures.

As far as sideboard options go; I ran Ratchet Bomb for the longest time as a way to deal with enchantments... eventually I realized that by the time i got enough counters on it the 2-4 CMC Enchantment had already done what it needed to do to beat me anyway.... so now I run other tech like Torpor Orb to increase my chances to win in other matchups. You could splash to gain access to enchantment removal spells like Destructive Revelry ?

For the main deck I say play to the strength has with low CMC discard spells like Duress or Inquisition of Kozilek / Thoughtseize . The perk of being able to pluck out a Jace, the Mind Sculptor early on in other matchups feels good too.

Inkmoth_ It's definitely never far from consideration, I've just opted for things like Steel Sabotage because what hurts us more than counterspells/removal? Torpor Orb and Cursed Totem .

I'm looking forward to seeing it! I love Torpor Orb for the fact that what's often the removal for it is Acidic Slime , Reclamation Sage , Bane of Progress , Knight of Autumn , etc. You see your opponents face light up for a moment after drawing as they've found their answer... Only to realize it wont work.

@ MCJennings The Anvil of Bogardan looks very sweet to me and I think that it might just be better than Howling Mine indeed. Very often I'm hording valuable enchantments and artifacts in my graveyard to cast an Open the Vaults , most of the time resulting in a powerfull bordstate unexpected by my opponents. The Anvil should be able helping me by filling my graveyard over the time with valuable goods... I'm making some changes to my Zedruudeck at the moment, trying out some new things to spice it up. So I did just cut the Howling Mine for Torpor Orb (SCREW YOU, Bane of Progress !!) . I'm going through some testing right now and I will update the deck sometime next week here on tappedout :)

Animar is a creature based deck. You have some of the best sweepers ever in your colors. Use Toxic Deluge , Wrath of God , Damnation , Fumigate , Cleansing Nova , Terminus , Hallowed Burial , Rout , Decree of Pain , and others to beat it. I would include 6-7.

Killing animar is next to impossible in your colors. Maybe consider Unstable Obelisk ?

Cards such as Torpor Orb , Lethal Vapors , Curse of Exhaustion , and Humility can help a lot too. Good luck!

I like this. In my opinion when it comes to Rakdos colors I think Ratchet Bomb is too little to late for enchantment removal. I think its better to play to your strengths and have things like Extirpate / Surgical Extraction or Molten Rain instead... or maybe Torpor Orb ?

Pleaning on Here, have some tokens.

That is a pretty good idea, thanks. I've already begun to put a list together

After looking around for some ideas, I came to a realization and I would appreciate some clarification as to whether or not I am correct...

If I have a Torpor Orb out and then cast a Thing in the Ice  Flip, will it enter the battlefield with no counters on it and then transform when I next cast an instant or sorcery? It wouldn't make sense for i to immediately transform due to the way the rules are worded but I am still unsure.

If I am reading this correctly, then my three copies of Thing in the Ice can also potentially find a home.
