Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire Discussion
3 days ago
Feel like this deck is finally ready for prime time. I love that Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire allows for so many different interpretations of how to use his ability. What do you think about the deck?

Whew, I've sure talked a lot in this thread. Here's probably my (second-to-)last EDH clutter:
Lumbering Battlement : Drop it, exile your other ETB people then flicker it. There's probably some obvious Worldgorger Dragon -esque combos to be found. With the bonus it gets and its base stats I think the CMC is just fine.
Eyes Everywhere : There's probably some fun abuse to be had when combined with owner-returning flickering; otherwise it faces stiff competition from Thassa, God of the Sea . Non- you steal from will probably not have much trouble activating its ability again due ubiquity of "any color" mana rocks, although that's far less certain with decks containing 2 or less colors.
Electrodominance : To squeeze just a bit more discussion out of this card, I think it's neat that this also functions as a one-time mana filter due to the genericness of .
Cavalcade of Calamity: I kinda wish they just color shifted Raid Bombardment to mono- instead, since red tends to have so much +X/+0 going on. At least the art is cool.
Persistent Petitioners: Ahahaha, oh yes, this is definitely how I want Advisor tribal to be flavored. A fine addition to the growing Relentless Rats family.
Font of Agonies : Loving the design space here. In the right deck this can probably be an efficient source of removal too.
Guardian Project : Kinda surprised Beast Whisperer got a rival right away. As far as singleton formats go, the it's a question of a body vs getting draws from cheating out creatures in addition to casting them.
Incubation Druid : There's stronger dorks out there, but I think it makes a fine complement if you can get counters on it reasonably early.
Bedevil : So I'm not a Putrefy fan but I'd still pick it over this if I had the choice, if only because the flexibility of the seems more valuable for the purpose of being able to more often react to threats at Instant speed over being able to target PWs. Still, this is something rakdos deserves and a fine choice when green isn't available.
PS. What was the deal with Ferocious suddenly showing up incognito?

Quite a few changes in the past few months. It is hard to say when these changes were made, but this is where the deck stands now. What do you think?

Uril, the Miststalker and Rafiq of the Many are a little too conventional for me, and a lot too cEDH. It's not that I hate competitive, but the two can often lead to no interaction, and therefore little fun.

Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire would be a serious color-pie bending choice, but you could make it work for voltron. You can run less removal since your commander would be the removal while doing damage, and your backup plan, which you'd already wanting to be doing, would be making tokens and going wide.
As far as the commanders you've listed, I'd say Tuvasa, Ruhan, or the Tana/Ishai combo would be the most voltron choices. Estrid, as a PW can't be voltron, but with enough token doubling effects she can go wide pretty quick.

You'll definitely want to go up to at the very least 24 lands. You could run Stomping Ground or Cinder Glade. You could also splash black for Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire since s/he's really cool. To do this, Blood Crypt or Smoldering Marsh are available.
I would cut the Spit Flame and Banefire for Lightning Bolt and the 4th Draconic Roar, even though it hurts the dragon flavor. This is mostly because Bolt can go to face and as it stands, you don't have the mana to get a big Banefire going. The 3 damage from bolt will let you deal with most planeswalkers and provide any extra reach you need. I would also a 3-1 split of Glorybringer and Stormbreath Dragon since Stormbreath can't get hit with Path to Exile, which is pretty big.
I'd recommend going down to 1 Lathliss, Dragon Queen as she is very expensive, mana wise, and replace those two with Verix Bladewing, since he comes down much faster and can get you two dragons later in the game.
Cards like Adventurous Impulse and Vanquisher's Banner can always be helpful since one lets you sift through your deck to find what you need and the other buffs your team and rewards you for landing more dragons.

Despite full knowing it isn't gonna be anywhere close to top tier. I really want to build something in standard with Omniscience (O.S.). My criteria is that O.S. has to be either the MVP or at least a viable alternate win condition for the deck. I'd appreciate it if people posted decklists running it, give suggestions or just share their thoughts below.
I'll post some decklists as I finish them but for now here's some of my rough concepts:
- UG version of the standard 'Elf Ball' list running multiple O.S. and a Nexus of Fate. All the elf mana dorks+Beast Whisperer/Vanquisher's Banner. Ramp into O.S. and draw you deck.
Salvager of Secrets/Naru Meha, Master Wizard/The Mirari Conjecture + Blink of an Eye/River's Rebuke/Quasiduplicate/Unexplained Disappearance+ Diamond Mare/Diligent Excavator etc for post O.S. infinite something.
Nexus of Fate turns
I'll still be adding stuff to this list as people suggest things.

I forgot to mention earlier that a political card can also be cards that give a backhanded gift (ie Nin, the Pain Artist). Also, not listing every curse in Magic's history.
