Vicious Rumors Discussion

PTsmitty on MTGA Nox' Cascade 15-0 Burn Deck

Have you tried Vicious Rumors in the deck? I have a alternat version I made that uses it since I do not have risk factor or sword-point. It seems like the discard has been effective when I play. The light life swing is slight bounce too.

Agreed...I played my version with Assassin's Trophy tonight at FNM and went 2-2. The green did make it less consistent, so I (begrudingly) am going to drop them. Vicious Rumors is looking fun for me to try...thoughts?

Hi I like the deck idea (+1),

If you already have splashed red for banefire (brilliant strategy but would go for 2 not 1 :) ) maybe also consider Regisaur Alpha the combo of swinging with carnage tyrants (and your other dinos) the turn they drop is painful to play against.

Also I agree with seshiro_of_the_orochi Nullhide Ferox would make a great sideboard card, I have seen it played before the players first land drop (opponant playing Vicious Rumors turn 1).

I also like that that this looks like a good deck before it's guild has come out yet so has a huge potential for play with the next set.

Thanks for sharing,

Also, thinking of splashing black for Vicious Rumors alone. That card works very well with what I am trying to do here, a discard along with a 2 life point swing with 1 black

Standard disclaimer that I am NOT a Pauper player, but why not Fiery Temper over Vicious Rumors? Seems like it would do more.

Also, Delirium Skeins seems good!

you could swap out Vampire Neonate for Barrier of Bones. i think card advantage would be better and more reliable than paying 2 mana and tapping your main blocker. its kind of a steep price for just 1 damage. also, Vicious Rumors is more value for that play

@enpc: Well, my Commander in question in this case is now Kess, Dissident Mage, so I'll thake the following into mind:

Beacon Bolt

Crackling Drake

Expansion / Explosion

Invert / Invent

Enhanced Surveillance

Mission Briefing

Omnispell Adept

Connive / Concoct

Discovery / Dispersal

Mnemonic Betrayal

Thought Erasure

Thief of Sanity

Vicious Rumors

Doom Whisperer

Cosmotronic Wave

Electrostatic Field

Experimental Frenzy

Dream Eater

Artful Takedown

(Basically anything w/ Surveil *...)

But I also need a way to protect my yard, now I use Kess. Isochron Scepter/Elite Arcanist. But how does a Kess Storm deck work? I have to cast things from my yard; & I'd like to keep at least some of my best stuff (CMC 6 >=.); after converting from Jeleva; all while having Instants/Sorceries of high cost. Any ideas as to How I can do that, enpc?
