Vector Asp Discussion

DangoDaikazoku on 'A Man has no Name. But Many Faces'

I like your list a lot, and your deck was one of the first decks I saw when I designed my own Lazav list so I took some inspiration from it. I do like the idea of using the Phyrexian Dreadnought and Vector Asp combo, but my list currently is not incorporating it due to the negative connotation my playgroup has with infect. For the sake of turning this deck into the combo heavy monstrosity I want it to be, I may have to throw those pieces in since really it's similar to the Phage win, but less expensive to pull off. I'm still trying to work out all the kinks in my list and make it more structured and consistent, but yeah I think I like your list so much because it's a little different from mine since mine is focusing on the infinite combo wins instead of the sneaky one shot win. This new Lazav is just so incredibly versatile.

Yeah because they both effect "base power and toughness" they are changing the same variable. After testing Vector Asp I found that the extra one mana slows the progression down to make it the same turn to swing (3rd turn) because second turn you can't ensoul and give it infect, so I am going to keep Plague Myr in, since it has no mana cost it is more consistant.

I'll definitely consider Vector Asp however I'm not sure spreading the blue mana so thin will be worth it, might be able to sub some islands for BU shock lands and swap out Plague Myr for the vector asps but even then it's depending on that black mana coming through. What do you guys think of - 4 Plague Myr - 8 Island +4 Darkslick Shores +4 Watery Grave ? I could also then open up a lot of potential black spells in the main board.

Metroid_Hybrid on Mono-color deck challenge..

Xica, you obviously didnt read the OP very closely due to you citing sideboard answers & specifically Kolaghan's Command, when I addressed those concerns already..

APPLE01DOJ: Thanks, though I work at UPSs main hub, so those long downtimes are sandwiched between hours of blue-collar insanity.. lol..

In the original form of the deck, I had put in dual lands to splash for Cranial Plating & Vector Asp, but took them out to keep it strictly mono-colored, and more consistent as a result.. What would you suggest I cut for Signal Pest?

What about a Vector Asp in the sideboard to fight lifegain?

Lame_Duck on Question about Distant Melody interaction ...

"Artifact" isn't a creature type, it's a card type so you can't choose it for Distant Melody. Creature types are things like Elves, Humans, Snakes and the like and they appear after the "-" on a creature card. So, for example, Vector Asp has the card types of "Artifact" and "Creature" and the creature type of "Snake".

Golem_Token on feed varolz

I have a finely tuned Varolz deck that you can check out if you want, but I'll make some more budgeted suggestions.

Nature's Claim is much better than Natural State especially if you're going to kill with infect/general damage.

Check out Vector Asp, Glistener Elf, Plague Stinger, and Viridian Corrupter for cheap, but effective scavenge targets. Be warned that infect strategies wont make you any friends, but it's an effective way to use Varolz. There's also Tainted Strike and Phyresis (works great with Thrun, the Last Troll!) if you scavenge onto non-infect creatures.

Creatures that are good for scavenging (other thank Phyrexian Dreadnought and Death's Shadow):

A good way to get those creatures into your graveyard is to use Buried Alive.

Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots are good with Varolz. Remember to scavenge BEFORE you equip if you're using Lightning Greaves because of shroud.

I recommend as many tutors as you can afford. Diabolic Tutor is pretty affordable.
