Vona's Hunger Discussion
2 weeks ago
Some budget friendly suggestions that are each under 2 USD in no particular order,
Tainted Field, Authority of the Consuls (pgood honestly), Cliffhaven Vampire, Drana's Emissary, Vampire Nighthawk, Felidar Sovereign (can also be used as a win condition), Orzhov Signet, Commander's Sphere, Utter End (it's like Mortify but for one more mana you can get rid of almost anything), Angelic Accord, Palace Siege, Sanguine Bond (works great for lifegain decks, but may draw hate b/c it's part of a 2 card combo for a really quick instant win), Vona's Hunger (used mid to late game), Return to Dust is flat out awesome and I would def auto-include this if possible, and finally Call to the Feast to add some bodies that will aid in your life-gain synergies.

First of all: I like your idea! In your description you mention Carnage Tyrant to be a real problem to deal with (because it is a 3-turn-clock and has hexproof as well). I may have some ideas ...
1.) What of making the whole approach more like a big toolbox? Max out the Mastermind's Acquisition and design your sideboart to provide some options if you need them.
2.) I feel like some of your one-offs may not show up often enough, when you need them, despite having some nice carddraw. Personally I would run more removal to deal with the biggest threat I sense for a build like this: (really) fast aggro decks
Why that way? Simply because Settle the Wreckage gets rid of that big, unfriendly dinosaur. Procession and the transformed compass will not handle it on their own (you'll need a Detection Tower, but the requirement of 4 colors won't leave really much space for a colorless mana source, I think).
3.) Ever thought about Teferi's "brother in arms", Ral, Izzet Viceroy? He provides cardadvantage, acts as some kind of removal (with enough instants/sorceries he maybe shoot something big other than a tyrant) and his Emblem is kinda both ...
4.) I Don't think you really need 3 Justice Strike in the mainboard. Best thing to answer a threat is on the stack by countering it:
5.) I would try to add some other carddraw besides Risk Factor. On low life, no sane opponent will take the damage, so you'll safe to say "I draw three". Unfortunately there are some decks with many lifelink or lifegain in general out there. They are happy to take the damage because it won't matter that much to them and you'll end up with an empty hand. The most reliable carddraw in my opinion would probably be Chemister's Insight, Radical Idea, and Divination.
6.) Following the thought from number 1.), here are my suggestions for adapting your board:
This would be my thoughts so far. Maybe you'll need to up or down one or another land to provide your colors, but the actual completely even distribution seems fine to me.

@Hiro__Protagonist: I've been playing this deck a bit to assess how it does in different situations, and it's very weak to stompy-style ramp. I'm looking at Damnation, Vona's Hunger, and Yahenni's Expertise as additions so if you're able to cut those I would probably go with two of the three and maybe even find a cut for the third. If you can keep the board clear the hand hate becomes so much more effective.

Build GB Midrange, game one was a loss against Boros Aggro, it was a close game. I had Vona's Hunger in hand, but was one permanent short of playing it with ascend. Think I could have played this match better, but I don't have that much experience with Midrange decks.
Game two was a win in the "mirror match". Outvalued him with an early The Eldest Reborn on his discarded Tezzeret, Artifice Master, which I nulled for two turns before it was destroyed. Without a Chromatic Lantern he could have never casted this dude. Opponent wasn't that good to be honest.

Hey hkhssweiss, much thanks for the input! :)
I totally forgot that Vona's Hunger existed! :)) I'll have to watch how quickly I can get to 10 permanents.
I think I can try running Dismember; the -5/-5 is significant, compared to Sickening Shoal which might end up becoming a pitched Last Gasp most of the time. That one mana to pay can be a steep cost on when the game is down to the wire, but it lets me hit Atraxa, Edgar, and the like.
Extraplanar Lens gets me two-for-oned in my meta, even when I use it as a Bubbling Muck. I also have trouble making the most out of it because I run a lot of nonbasic lands. Crypt Ghast dies to the Pox effects and other removal spells but it gives me Extort and at least I don't lose a land when they respond to it. I used to run Nirkana Revenant too, along with Caged Sun but it was too high on the curve, so they got cut out.
Sadistic Sacrament was once part of the deck, but I ended up being able to regularly pay for the Kicker cost, which made me rather unpopular. I switched to Praetor's Grasp and added multicolor mana rocks so it can also act as an "off-color" tutor. However, I do still bring it out when I'm playing in a cutthroat environment.

Hey welcome to T/O!
For most Geth deck, they focus a lot on mana acceleration to be able to abuse his ability. Some cards that might be helpful to you can be:
Also I would recommend adding in some more interaction/draw spells like:
Hope that helps!
