Vengeful Rebel Discussion

I've been building a similar deck, and I really like Supernatural Stamina. Great for protecting your guys/making them trade up in combat and getting them back. It works really great with Midnight Entourage, triggering it while still letting you keep the creature. It's also great with Vengeful Rebel, which I'm running a few of, because you can let it die in combat or sac it to protect Yahenni, Undying Partisan and then get it back, triggering its ETB to kill or finish off something.
Metallic Mimic is also great, a 2 mana lord that's also an artifact.

I love the synergies here. Nice break from the Mono-Black list, as well.
It might also be good to test something like 2 Legion's Landing Flip (or 2 more Battle at the Bridge) in place of 1 Syndicate Trafficker and 1 Thopter Arrest to add more lifegain and get out of range of Ramunap Ruins.
I dig it - have fun playing!

Two suggestions. Drop the Duresss. You don't want a playset in the mainboard due to the creature heavy nature of your deck, meaning it's too high variance anyway. Also I'd replace Kambal with Vengeful Rebel. Works great with Angel of Condemnation and better with the tenor of your deck in general.

This gives us a 20 card core to the deck, from which we can go several directions. I'm thinking of exploring a couple of options, like a more controlling deck and a more synergistic resilient aggro deck.
We'll want to keep the land count pretty high, so we'll go for 24 lands which gives us 16 cards to play with. Grasp of Darkness is extremely good, but is going to come out of standard at some point which I'm not so sure about but you'll be able to play it for a few weeks. Fatal Push is very good but I'd probably only run 2 or 3. We're going to want to run some Yahenni's Expertise because it's pseudo-card advantage. I feel that it's almost worth running Unlicensed Disintegration in this build but it does make the manabase fucky. Aetherborn Marauder is an evasive beater that might get some big hits in depending.
so this begins to look like
- 4x Grasp of Darkness
- 3x Fatal Push
- 3x Yahenni's Expertise
- 4x Unlicensed Disintegration
- 2x Aetherborn Marauder
with lands looking like
- 4x Aether Hub
- 2x Ramunap Ruins
- 2x Ifnir Deadlands
- 2x Scavenger Grounds
- 9 Swamp
- 5 mountain (adjust to taste)
This one is a bit more fun, I think. We're going to go

Bontu's Last Reckoning or otherwise Flaying Tendrils are cheap options for a boardswipe which can beneffit Yahenni, Undying Partisan to a great extent or just clear the way for an indestructible Syndicate Trafficker.

Thanks for the suggestions, Aiding, it's much appreciated.
I actually think Contraband Kingpin is pretty important for the deck to be able to deal with aggro; as a 1/4 it can block basically all of the aggressive creature and most of them even when boosted by an Anthem effect and it doesn't just die to Lightning Bolt.
Similarly, I think you're underestimating Crystal Shard; it does a lot. It sort of blanks one of the opponent's lands, saves my creatures from removal or chump blocks, fulfils the requirement for revolt on Vengeful Rebel and gets repeated ETB triggers out of my creatures, which is important for grinding out victory in long games in a way that Vapor Snag can't replicate. That being said, I do think that 4 of them was too many, given how clunky they are in multiples.
Smother is a good suggestion, although I do think it's important to be able to kill higher CMC creatures because reanimator and Cloudpost decks are common occurrences, so I'll try out a split of Smother and Victim.
