moremanawins thanks! I recently put a lot f effort into the vorthos side of the deck so I'm glad you like it!

Vona, Butcher of Magan just... costs too much and is too slow. This deck likes to be mean and lean and Vona is a detour I don't feel like taking. A+ flavor choice though. Thanks for commenting!

+1 because the deck has so much flavor my mouth started to salivate. The only qualm I have with this list, is why in God’s name is Vona, Butcher of Magan not in here? She has synergies both in lifegain and theme, plus a sweet removal ability. Even her art and backstory show that she is a literal conquistador. Please add her in because this would take the flavor to Gordon Ramsey levels of spice. Anyways +1 from me.

You have Vona, Butcher of Magan down twice. Is this intentional?

Welcome to the most difficult part of being the best player.
We all want to play. Good players win lots of games all the time. The best players (especially in commander) lose gracefully, not because they misplay or anything of that sort, but because they have the self control to not “always win”.
If you are “always losing” to a silver billet deck, YOU have to chose whether to be good, or the best.
A good player wins faster, and makes answers obsolete by removing players from the game before they can get to their silver bullets. Essentially, a good player’s deck is always at a power level above that of the meta.
The best player does one of two things:
1) add answers for the silver bullets, so you still lose to them sometimes, but don’t get locked nearly as often.
2) build a different deck you enjoy at a similar power level which doesn’t get shutdown nearly as hard. Example of when this is necessary: I have a Vona, Butcher of Magan deck. It gets absolutely ranched by Tainted Remedy , and there’s no way around that. So I have a Sharuum the Hegemon deck and Ezuri, Claw of Progress deck which could give a squirrel about Tainted Remedy .

The best player is never above the meta’s power level because being above the meta means that no-one but you has fun. Either tech your deck to not get doo-doo’d on so hard, or if that’s not viable, build another deck at a similar power-level to compete with.

Boza Let me ask you a question: Do you know why Vona, Butcher of Magan is a garbage card? There's only one answer. Let's see if you get it in one. Maybe it'll help you understand some of the design choices regarding THIS card.

Looks pretty good. I think you should definitely find room for Vizkopa Guildmage . You can activate her second ability multiple times (even in response to the first lifegain trigger), resulting in huge drains for every life gained during the turn!

You might like these too: Storage Matrix , Uba Mask , Angel's Trumpet , Regna, the Redeemer , Sunbond , Cradle of Vitality , Slaughter , Dingus Staff , Ethereal Absolution , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Angelic Accord , Resplendent Angel , Revival, Syphon Mind

Seconding Vona, Butcher of Magan . She’s a fantastic mix of Aggro and control, and all she really needs are a few choice equipment ( Darksteel Plate + Lightning Greaves , Blackblade Reforged if you’re feeling real spicy) and she can absolutely take over a game. The only downside is that if you can’t keep her around, you very easily start losing.
