Vindicate Discussion

x2sock on Selenia's Shenanigans - They never see it coming.

Return to Dust is more expensive but work better than Disenchant in some cases. Any white deck which is not green might want to play Land Tax or Smothering Tithe Some good card draw card which you are missing out on is Phyrexian Arena

Some very good white removals are Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares and Generous Gift since it can target anything. Vindicate is good aswell but just sorcery speed.

And since you are not playing that many creatures myb include smth like Damnation, Decree of Pain, Plague Wind, Overwhelming Forces, Wrath of God

And that's just me, but i like to throw in a Mana Tithe just to catch some people of gurad, they dont expect a counterspell from a white/black deck.

Brogan54 on Oloro, Ageless Ascetic

2 weeks ago

My recommendations :

I think most people will tell you that Oloro offers little competitive advantage to you compared to other esper commander like Zur (who can fetch Necropotence into play) or even Aminatou (who is a combo piece in the command zone). I think upsides for Oloro would be that he can do larger ad nauseam and possibly can even run Humility which few decks can win while it is on the board.

RNR_Gaming on Harvesting Time - infinite persist

improvements to the mana base will help this be more competitive. However, lowering the curve would also do wonders. Have you considered using changelings? They still count as scarecrows but they're no where near as cool. Taurean Mauler, Unsettled Mariner, Mirror Entity, Changeling Outcast are all fairly useful and become a 3 mana Vindicate with your commander out.

CardTyrant on Drannith Defense Force

Vindicate is a good card, but if you noticed that most of my removal is instant speed for single target and sorcery speed for mass removal. That was why Vin didn't make the cut.

Herald's Horn is a nice card (and I have three or four copies somewhere) but the reduction is nice and all, but humans are pretty cheap. The added card draw is nice, but this deck doesn't lack that.

Vanquisher's Banner was considered since it is a nice anthem and card draw, but that 5CMC is what's stopping me.

Thought Vessel is a maybe because it was a cheap mana rock. I was trying to run as many cheap mana rocks that I got back at least half the card's cost back without having to do anything extra.

Angel of Glory's Rise was considered, but since she's an angle, I didn't want to open that can of worms because then people would suggest cards like Herald of War or Angelic Overseer or Requiem Angel.

I'm not going to reject your suggestions, but these were my thoughts against them. Now I was also considering switching the commander for the partners in the deck. If I did that I would most likely run Angel of Glory's Rise AND Requiem Angel.

DrunkManSquakin666 on Jirina Humans

I feel like a broken record at this point, but I suppose it can't be helped, lol.

Some cards to consider for spot removal: Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, and Utter End. They are played in the vast majority of Orzhov and Mardu decks for a reason.

Tribal decks are gonna wanna run Vanquisher's Banner and Herald's Horn for the same reason: they're just that good.

Finally, General Kudro of Drannith is a lord card, gave hate, AND (somewhat limited) spot removal in one package. Run him in this strategy, for the love of all that is pure and holy! Jirina will love you for it.

DrunkManSquakin666 on Drannith Defense Force

You're definitely on to something with that Maybe Board. I'd suggest adding Herald's Horn, Vanquisher's Banner, and Vindicate.

Also, if you do end up running Thought Vessel, you might wanna add a Reliquary Tower for good measure.

Another card you might wanna consider is Angel of Glory's Rise for recovery.

DrunkManSquakin666 on Ruthless Regiment Upgraded

3 weeks ago

Chaos Warp is a good card if you're in Rakdos, but having access to white gives you much better options that don't come with the inherent risk of swapping the target out for something worse.

Seriously, why are so few people putting Anguished Unmaking, Vindicate, or Utter End in their upgraded versions of this precon?! Don't wanna be mean, but these cards should be the first cards that come to mind for spot removal.

Also, you might wanna reconsider using Queen Marchesa. She is not card draw, she's a bullseye on your forehead. Wonderful Pillowfort commander, but more often than not, you ain't keeping that Monarch for long without a way to blink her or deter attackers.

DrunkManSquakin666 on Human Tribal

Glad to see someone has a brain in their head and added Vindicate and Utter End to the deck, lol.

You might wanna consider Anguished Unmaking for good measure, though. Maybe play around with the idea of a Sunforger package?

In either case, you're definitely on to something with this. Good job! :)
