Vexing Devil Discussion

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.

How abort something like Vexing Devil or maybe some defenders like Cinder Wall or Wall of Torches ?

You could probably drop 2x Goblin Gathering , Radiating Lightning , Sandblast , Mad Prophet , Magmatic Chasm , 1x Blade Instructor and Divine Verdict for 4x Lightning Bolt and 4x Oblivion Ring .

Now, I'm about to explain something really weird to you.

Back it the day, you couldn't actually target planeswalkers with things that dealt damage. Instead whenever a player would be dealt damage by a source other than a creature dealing combat damage, that source's controller could choose to redirect it to a planeswalker that player controls instead.

Other than just not being very intuitive, this made for some really weird interactions.

Vexing Devil or Browbeat for example, could be used to kill planeswalkers which definately wasn't what they were intended to do, and if a player had hexproof, their planeswalkers could no longer be damaged by things like Shock , due to technically needing to target the player for that to happen.

So they changed the rules so that Planeswalker had to be targeted like they would be by a removal spell such as Hero's Downfall , opting to errata every old card that used to say "damage to target creature or player" to say any target, so that they would still work the way they were intended.

So Lightning Bolt is the exact same card as Shock it just deals an extra damage, it's just too old to have the opdated text printed on the card.

Vexing Devil is already in the deck as a 2-of because it does just kinda suck against removal

Bedevil is better than Fatal Push for the Death's Shadow matchup because they play non- 1 mana threats such as Gurmag Angler . also deaths shadow just doesn't do so well in general against a deck with 15 bolts

Vexing Devil might be a good inclusion and I recommend Fatal Push in the SB to deal with shadow.

@V1NDHL3R Gotcha. So I'm gonna recommend Vexing Devil and Glorybringer .

I used to run this exact kind of deck.

It did okay on a good day.

Another important one is Vexing Devil .

Here's my list Kill Yourself (Aka Bad Decisions)

hey matthewthewizard definitely thought about putting him in but wanted to make the deck a little different not a copy and paste of a pro deck even though goblin is usually valued as a 6 dmg creature so put Vexing Devil as a replacement also vexing is my fav card xD but i will eventually bite the bullet and replace him with guide
